An Insider’s Guide to GLASS SKIN

When I was asked to share beauty trends for 2020 on GMA for their New Year’s show, I immediately though of GLASS SKIN!  It’s so hot right now.  Read on to find out what glass skin is all about, and how I recommend achieving the look quickly and on a budget!

First of all, what is glass skin?  It’s intensely hydrated skin that makes you look “lit from within.”

Ok, how do we get glass skin?  So, you might have googled “glass skin” only to find lengthy, daunting skincare regimens that are not only time consuming but frighteningly expensive.  NOT necessary, ladies!  Here’s my quick and easy guide to glass skin:

Add one pump of a glass skin serum under your usual morning skincare routine: I love Peach and Lily’s Glass Skin Refining Serum which brightens skin with niacinamide and traps moisture with hyaluronic acid.

Apply a glass skin balm alone or over makeup. This one totally nails the glass skin look.

At night, use a cream that pumps up your hydration, and really seals in moisture overnight.  I’m loving The Dewy Skin Cream by Tatcha.

EXPERT TIP:  In the morning, if you’re heading out with your glass skin look, considering using a bit of powder in an upside down triangle between your eyebrows to finish the look.  Glass skin should be translucent and radiant, but if you look too glassy in the T zone it can come across as shiny.  There’s a fine line between glass skin and greasy skin- do NOT cross that line for ideal results!
