How to achieve it ? I am going to provide drugstore details and steps on how to achieve Korean beauty regimen for glass skin, sitting at home!

Step 1: Double Cleanse

We all are well aware of cleansing, but you must be wondering what's double-cleansing! Well, Asian skin care introduced us to double cleansing for achieving glass skin and a truly pore-less complexion. When you want to get rid of every trace of makeup, oil, sweat, dirt, and pollutants before calling it a night, then all in one solution is - Double cleansing.

Double cleansing method involves removing your makeup with an oil-based cleanser and washing your face with a foam-based face wash. Here, we are advised to choose a makeup remover and face wash that are specially formulated for your skin type and maintain the pH balance of your skin without drying it out. First step is to clean your face with micellar water or some oil with the help of cotton pads, after which, you can use a foam-based cleanser to deep cleanse the pores in order to remove all the harmful pollutants from your face. You can also choose foam based cleanser according to your skin type.

Step 2: Exfoliate

Another important step for the glass skin is to exfoliate your face. Over-exfoliation is not advised , else your skin might go really dry. You may try exfoliation process twice a week in order to open up the pores and gently clean all the dirt from your face.

Step 3: Toner (Do the 7 Skin Method)

Exfoliation process dries out our skin and this is why you need a toner to restore all the lost moisture and hydration in our skin. We should never avoid toning up our face as it is one of the most crucial step in skincare routine. When we cleanse and exfoliate face, it opens up the pores and leaves them open if we do not follow it up with a toner. We should try using a gentle, non-alcoholic toner to close our pores and restores its pH balance.

Tip: Try using the 7 skin method for applying toner which is extremely effective if you are planning to achieve that Korean beauty regimen for glass skin. All you have to do is pat the toner on your skin and then let it dry. Now, apply the next layer and repeat it for 7 layers . This will make your skin look super hydrated.
