Get the Glass Glow: The Korean Skincare Trend
Find the steps to radiant skin this summer by trying out the “glass skin” regimen that has taken the beauty world by storm!
In a world as dynamic as the beauty and skincare industry, Korean beauty products and trends are emerging as the new avenue towards achieving crystal clear, supple and radiant skin. Moving away from the matt-finishes and powdered contours, the industry is embracing the soft highlights, berry tints and the poreless dewy look, this summer.
Although beauty Korean beauty is tailor made for mostly fair skinned consumers, the dewy look is versatile because of its simplicity. On wheatish and darker South Asian skin tones, it reads as a beautiful flush of colour and moisturized perfection.
Here are Qretto’s steps to follow to find your way to the luminous glow!
Double Cleanse: Begin your skincare routine with a gentle oil-based cleanser that retains the natural oils on your face and follow it up with another gentle foaming cleanser for a thorough cleanse.
(If you have naturally dry skin however, it is best to stick to the single cleanse)
Exfoliate: This step is essential to help rid the face of any dead skin cells or redness that hinder the natural radiance of your skin. It is best to use a non-abrasive, homemade scrub from Honey, Sugar and Lemon and scrub it onto the face for 2 minutes.
Raw Honey contains small amounts of gluconic acid and other alpha-hydroxy acids, which gently remove dead skin cells and brighten the complexion.

(This step should be done about twice a week, in order for the skin to not lose its natural oils)
Moisturize: In order to lock in maximum moisture that adds natural glow to the skin, it is very essential to find the correct moisturizer for one’s skin type. Virgin Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera are great additions to one’s skincare routine to soothe and protect skin from sun damage and acne.
