How To Achieve Glass Skin With Just One Product

April 27, 2024

The art of achieving “Glass Skin” has been making waves in the beauty industry for years now as a highly sought-after K-beauty-coined skincare trend that leaves skin looking smooth with a bouncy and (you guessed it) glassy complexion. As seen on platforms such as TikTok, getting glass skin can be a lengthy process, sometimes filled with multiple steps and products. Well, I’m here to tell you that now you can say goodbye to all that time and product and hello to just one product that does it all—and more. 

The secret is out. Hydration and protection featuring a glass skin finish is in. 

As a skincare connoisseur, I’ve recently found that the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Weightless Moisturizer with SPF 30 (or SPF 50) truly makes my skin look and feel super healthy and bouncy- all while radiating a lit-from-within glow and soft reflective shine. Developed from Bioré Japan’s water-based sun protection, this fan-favorite is now available in Canada, featuring a thoughtful blend of ingredients and broad spectrum SPF that help protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays. In fact, daily use of SPF can help prevent premature skin aging caused by the sun’s harmful rays. This product also offers a burst of hydration making it the ultimate everyday must-have. It really does feel silky smooth and feather-light when applied because it has a non-greasy texture—plus, it sheers out to reveal a beautiful luminous finish. 

Truthfully, I love that my skin base routine can be ultra simplified to help me achieve the look of glass skin with just one product- all thanks to the Bioré UV Aqua Rich Weightless Moisturizer. This is perfect for days when I want glass skin in a pinch and can reach for a trusted product that has high-quality, skin-loving ingredients and benefits. Formulated with hydrating hyaluronic acid, this product is dermatologist-tested and non-comedogenic which makes it ideal for daily use. Hyaluronic acid is great for keeping skin moisturized since it promotes collagen production, and helps boost elasticity. This product has also been developed with performance and safety top of mind, plus, it works on a variety of skin tones because it doesn’t leave behind a white cast.

So, how do you use it? Since it’s a weightless moisturizer, this would be the last step I use in my skincare routine before I apply makeup. It acts as the perfect base underneath any cosmetics or color products because it quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving behind a sheer glow and healthy, glass skin-like finish. With summer around the corner, this will also be your new go-to because it’s oil-free and won’t clog your pores. I also love it because it’s perfect for my sensitive skin, ensuring long-lasting hydration and invisible, clean protection (although be sure to apply as needed).

This will no doubt become a holy grail product in your everyday beauty routine, as it has mine. I love using it as a base underneath my makeup but I also use it on its own for a bouncy, fresh-face look that mirrors that of glass skin. Since I have fair, sensitive skin I typically opt for the SPF 50 version, but you can also go for the brand’s SPF 30 option if you prefer. Trust me—this J-Beauty go-to product is the secret to glass skin you never knew you needed. —Samantha Vecchiarelli
