How To Get Glass Skin

Firstly, what is glass skin? 

Glass skin is ultra dewy, almost glossy and very clear. 

Take a browse through Pinterest to see how beauty lovers are rocking this trend. 

Korean women have the most amazing skin.

They literally look like porcelain dolls; smooth, clear, and blemish-free skin that looks like perfection.

Glass skin is the name for the K-beauty trend helps woman achieve very clear, flawless ‘glass-like’ skin.  

To get glass skin you need to follow a strict routine…

1. Double Cleanse
Use 2 different cleansers.  A cream or oil-based and then a water or foam based one.  Cleanse both morning and night.  Cleansing your face in the morning will help to clear away oil and prepare your skin for the day. Cleansing your face at night will clear your skin of the daily dirt and grime.

2. Exfoliate

Regularly exfoliate your skin twice a week to help keep it super smooth. Exfoliating away the dead skin cells will help to create a skin surface that will help the product you apply penetrate the skin.  Dead skin cells sitting on top of the skin will prevent your serums and creams from penetrating.  So don’t forget to exfoliate!

3. Tone 

Toning you face will help you to achieve an even skin tone and prevent flaky dry skin.

4. Apply Essence

Use an essence to get concentrated nutrients and vitamins into your skin. This helps to hydrate, firm and smooth the skin.

5.Serum

Apply serum to add more concentrated goodness into your skin.

6. Moisturize

Apply moisturizer over the essence.  It is good to layer your product this helps to treat and protect your skin.

7. Apply Eye Cream

The skin around our eyes needs all the TLC it can get!

8. SPF

This is necessary to help you achieve porcelain skin.  Apply sunscreen even in the winter to help avoid premature aging, age spots and wrinkles…all which help you to look older.  

Getting smooth ultra dewy skin involves a strict routine that has many steps including washing, exfoliating, cleansing, toning, serum, moisturizing and then more moisturizing.

It may seem like its too much work, but your efforts WILL BE rewarded with great skin.

K-beauty is the biggest thing to happen to the global beauty industry since the 2000’s.  F

rom black charcoal nose peeling strips to DIY at home face-masks, women around the world love k-beauty and it is safe to safe that they are hooked on it.

Remember on YouTube back awhile,  where people would slather a black mask on their nose, leave it harden then peel it off getting rid of all the gunk that was on their nose?  

Yes?  That was a tried and tested K-beauty routine step used for years by Korean women. 

As K Beauty became more popular more and more K beauty trends emerged on social media…but they have already been around in South Korea for some time.

Another trend that’s been around for a while before it became big, was the 18 carat gold gel eye mask. 

Its new to us, but not women in South Korea.

Best Korean Acne Treatment

Looking for the best acne treatment to get rid of pimples fast? 

Acne can be a real pain and make you feel very self-conscious. 

Below are the best acne products by COSRX. COSRX is a great brand that makes effective acne products that are used by people all over the world.  It is another wonderful Korean Skin Care product.

COSRX uses the best quality ingredients to make the best acne products.  If you struggle with acne and want an effective and fast acting acne treatment we highly recommend the COSRX range.  

Having acne and pimples can be very frustrating.  If you  have acne that is red and sore you do have to be very careful with how you touch your skin and what products and makeup you use.  Sometimes the skin is just too inflamed and sore to touch. 

We recommend that at least start to use a pimple patch.  Korean products are very good and affordable. If you are on a limited budget start with the pimple patches and use them at night whilst you sleep. Then add product by product. 

For more info on great Korean acne products, read this post.

Just remember every time you touch your face you are spreading bacteria.  Even our hands contain bacteria just from our general every day activities.  

best acne pimple patch cosrx

Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch

COSX Acne Pimple Master Patch is one of the best acne treatments on the market. 

All Cosrx products are great but these little patches are literally a band-aid for pimples.  The patches contain Hydrocolloid which is very effective at treating and curing acne.

The patches protect the pimple while treating the infection and reducing the inflammation, swelling, and redness.  The patches absorb excess sebum and bacteria while protecting the pimple from further contamination. Because the pimple is covered they also stop you from picking at your pimple and damaging your skin. When you pick at pimples it can leave scars.  The patches stop you from doing this.

The patches are very effective when applied to an open, red, wet pimple and many users have stated that they saw a visible improvement within 12 hours of the patch being applied. When applied to a whitehead with visible pus that has not been popped users have said that the whitehead was gone within 24 hours. The absorption does take longer on an unpopped pimple, but it does work.

The patches are clear and are worn until the pimple has gone.

Apply the patches to clean dry skin. Do not apply moisturizer, essence, or any other product to the area before applying the patch as they may not enable it to stick thoroughly. 

They can be used either day or night, many people prefer to use them overnight as they are convenient and have a firm attachment to the skin, and won’t come off during the night while sleeping.

cosrx salicylic acid daily cleanser

Cosrx Renewal Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser

This gentle daily cleanser is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. The cleanser calms down an acne breakout and removes excess sebum and bacteria. It helps to prevent the formation of blackheads and whiteheads by exfoliation.  Salicylic Acid exfoliates the dead surface skin cells away which encourages fresh skin cells to the surface helping your skin to look clear and fresh.

ac collection ultimate spot cream cosrx

Cosrx AC Collection Ultimate Spot Cream

AC Collection Ultimate Spot Cream is a pimple cream that soothes and calms skin.  When used consistently, over time the cream reduces acne marks and scars.

When applied to a pimple it reduces redness and minimises the pimple.  It can be used morning and night.

How To Have Great Skin Without Lazer Resurfacing Or Surgery

How To Have Great Skin Without Lazer Resurfacing Or Surgery

How To Have Great Skin

Have you ever wondered how to have great skin without paying a bomb for painful lazer or resurfacing procedures

Truthfully, the idea of walking into a surgery and getting a procedure done is very tempting but the price is a turn off and things can and do go wrong.

We all want naturally great skin.  Clear, flawless skin is ideal as when your skin is that good, you don’t need a lot of makeup. 

For those of us who do wear a lot of makeup (like me!) my life would be a heck of a lot easier if didn’t have to apply so much on a daily basis. 

Contouring and camouflaging takes time and if you are rushed in the morning it’s not very practical.  

As a mother I don’t have time to contour and camouflage in the morning…but I still want my skin and face to look good and I do apply foundation, concealer and eye makeup.  

Fortunately we can get smoother, clearer skin without surgery by using great Korean skin care products. 

But we also need to take note of our nutrition and the food we are eating. 

What we eat affects our skin, I don’t just mean junk food.  Yes sure living off fried foods and packed foods will make you fat and probably give you pimples, but a lack of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants will eventually show on your face after a certain age. 

Mid life women know what I am talking about.  Once your headed towards tour 40’s and beyond, food and its nutritional supply becomes important.

So lets look at non surgical and non product strategies that can help us improve our skin.

5 Natural Ways To Have Great Skin

1. Eat lots of fruits and veggies

Remember the time when you hated your mom because she forced you to eat broccoli?

Turns out, she was right all along about green veggies all along.  Fruits and veggies like guava, kiwi fruits, strawberries, broccoli, greens etc. are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.

More vitamins is better for your body and better for your skin.  You can easily incorporate more fruit and vegetables into your diet by juicing or by making a smoothie. 

 2. Drink lots of water

It is known that drinking at least eight glasses of water each day helps get rid our body and skin of harmful toxins.

Drinking adequate amount of water helps in blood circulation, digestion, and excretion, all of which contribute to better skin.

Water helps to hydrate us from the inside out.  Drinking an adequate amount of water helps to reduce wrinkling and skin sagging. Hydrated skin is plumper and fuller, so be sure to drink enough water every day.

3. Don’t forget to remove makeup at night

Double cleanse your skin at night to get rid of all the makeup, grime and impurities from the day.  You will be surprised how much is on your skin even if you wear no makeup.    

4. Sleep More – Stress Less

Everyone is better with an adequate amount of sleep.  Lack of sleep makes you grumpy, slows your reflexes and does not give your body enough time to regenerate and renew. 

Lack of sleep will release a higher level of cortisol in the body (the stress hormone).  Lack of sleep definitely shows on your face, especially at that time of the month.  Then as we get to middle-aged and hormonal changes start to happen, you will find that you need more sleep.  

Also, work on reducing or eliminating stress in your life. 

Have you ever had someone tell you that you always look upset or stressed? 

The reason why is that you always have a frown on your face because you are so stressed out! 

You can’t carry on like this for too long, otherwise, your face, your body or your mind will pay the price.  Get life under control as soon as you can.

5. Eat Less Sugar

As you get older sugar wreaks havoc on your body.  Sugar as been called the ‘Wrinkle Maker’ and it causes inflammation in the body that leads to more wrinkles.  Read more at  Total Dermatology.  

Getting youthful and the radiant skin does not have to be complicated or expensive, but you do have to be mindful of what you are putting in your mouth as well as what you use on your skin.

Korean beauty care can help you get your skin into top shape.  

If you have a skin care routine that you follow and use decent products but your skin is not glowing or hydrated then you need to assess your water intake and what you are eating. 

Obviously, smoking and drinking are not great for your skin, but not eating nutrient-rich foods will eventually show on your face.

Korean Beauty Care

Korean Beauty Care

Korean Beauty Care

There used to be a time in the beauty and skin care industry when French products were the best products around. 

Then came along South Korea and Korean beauty care.  Korean skin care and beauty has literally stole the show, establishing itself as the new market leaders. 

Well, if you don’t know Korean women are renowned for using the Korean Skin Care Routine, which is a multi-step, multi-product cleansing, toning and moisturising system that gets exceptional results.

Why are non-Asian women following Korean beauty care?

Simple because it works and the products are the best. Koreans are obsessed with clear, youthful looking skin…even the men. 

Many Koreans look much younger than they are and its all to the beauty care routine and k beauty products they use. 

It’s the attitude and culture of the Koreans that is responsible for the obsession towards the perfect skin and the evolution of the Korean beauty care industry.

The beauty standards of the country are much different to that in the West & Europe.

For example, it’s not fashionable for Korean men to sport a scruffy beard to display their masculinity because the people there prefer youthful good looks.  So, don’t be surprised to learn that someone who looks  like they are in their 20’s, are actually more than 40 years old!

Korean parents also place a great deal of importance to raising their kids to place high value on their appearance.

As a result, the average Korean female is known to spend up to 10 times as much as their American counterparts. Koreans are not ashamed to admit that they see clear skin as their goal. 

One of the causes of the rise of K-beauty in the Western world can be attributed to the highly influential K-Pop culture, Korean celebrities and TV. K-Pop stars are beautiful and they have flawless skin. 

Beautiful looking TV stars, music idols and celebrities set the example of ideal skin and appearance. Even plastic surgery to correct facial features is not considered extreme in the country, but is rather encouraged.

The famous 10 step beauty routine is for women who are serious about their skin. 

The routine includes multiple steps like: double cleansing, toning, exfoliating, applying essence, serums and ampoules.

As well as moisturizing. applying eye cream and sunscreen

It may seem like a lot of work but Korean women place high value on pampering and looking after themselves.  

Korean Beauty Care And Technology 

The Korean Beauty Care Industry is booming. 

They have advanced technology and use natural ingredients which has delivered some of the best products in the world.  

In South Korea, even mushrooms and snail slime are used in the beauty industry, contributing to more than $ 2.6 billion worth of export of skincare products in a year(as of 2016).  They use revolutionary technology that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the world.  

K Beauty is continually improving by investing in product technology and research that produces products that caters to a wide variety of skin care needs, skin care issues and the skin’s ever-changing needs as we age.

Koreas beauty secret lies behind products that target every skincare challenge, starting from hormonal fluctuations and acne to skin pigmentation and wrinkles.

There is a product for every skin issue.  South Korea IS making some of the best beauty and skin care products on the market today, there will be a range of products that you can use, that won’t break the bank. There is no question about it.  There is a product for every type of skin concern;
