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!

Although during these days or seasons the demands of our obligations tend to be high, studies have shown that greater health bears greater wealth—both physically and mentally. To explore how best to foster a healthy glow while on the go, I caught up with the renowned dermatologist and author Dr. Whitney Bowe. Dr. Bowe is an esteemed dermatologist who specializes in laser dermatology, skin rejuvenation, and the gut-brain-skin connection. She has shared her expertise on media platforms such as Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, The Rachael Ray Show, The Doctors, and more. Dr. Bowe has also written more than 40 articles and book chapters and conducted clinical trials exploring new forms of treatment for acne. Her exceptional research in microbiology has led to numerous awards from renowned organizations such as the Skin Cancer Foundation. She has additionally been featured on the eminent Super Doctors of New York list and holds a patent for a bacterial-derived acne treatment.

I had so much fun working with my Good Morning America family this morning and sharing some of my go-to, DIY facial masks for glowing, healthy skin. I’ve had a lot of requests for more information on the masks we featured, so here you go!

DEPUFFING AND EXFOLIATING: Coffee and Yogurt Mask

  • Coffee: The caffeine in coffee grounds helps to reduce swelling and puffiness.
  • Yogurt: Soothing, emollient
  • To make: Combine 3 tablespoons of greek yogurt with 2 tablespoons of finely ground coffee and mix together (using a fork) until you have a paste. Apply to face using gentle, circular motions. Rinse off after 20 minutes with warm water and a soft wash cloth. Pat dry!

COMBAT REDNESS: Green Tea and Honey Mask

  • Green Tea: Soothing, removes impurities, reduces inflammation
  • Honey: Antibacterial, soothing
  • To make: Cut open 2 green tea bags and empty contents into mixing bowl. Add a few drops of water and mix with fork just to dampen. Then, mix in 3 tablespoons of honey (I use a fork to mix, which seems to work better than a spoon). Apply mask to face. Rinse off after 15 -20 minutes with warm water and a soft wash cloth. Pat dry!

The harsh and cold winter air can leave your skin feeling so chapped. These easy masks with ingredients you can find right in your kitchen are a quick fix to rehydrate and nourish your skin!
