If you remember, 'Glass Skin' was a beauty trend that was all over the 'Gram in 2019. Known as the 'glass skin effect' it was all about living with a transparent, luminous, glossy-like complexion that resembled real glass. This trend required not just one, but several skincare products to make the skin appear clear, dewy and plump like a baby's bottom. If you're new to it, trying to keep up with this trend every day can become a tad bit exhausting, and for real? Who has time to do this? Hence, a new invention was born. Say hello to 'Cream Skin' y'all!
According to Soko Glam co-founder, Charlotte Cho, she says, "Cream Skin is a fusion between a toner and a moisturiser that isn’t as heavy as the name implies, but milky in texture."
A glass skin routine focuses on all-over shine and it is quite a high maintenance look. You usually need an arsenal of products to get it right and you've got to layer a lot of stuff to get the look. These are some of the products you would need to get glass-like skin.
Get the look:
Post double cleansing, exfoliate your skin using a face scrub. To make sure that your skin is free from dust and makeup residue, use a toner. It will also restore your skin's pH balance as well. The next part is the application of essence to add radiance. Serum and moisturise after for that gorgeous glow. Also, don't forget to use an eye cream for bright under eyes and a sheet mask to seal all that good stuff into your pores.
Cream Skin, on the other hand, focuses on a simpler - more realistic routine. Hydrated skin, illuminated at all the right spots using just a few products. The cream skin routine isn't just practical, it's also perfect for the hot and humid weather conditions in India. You're going to need:

If you're a believer in the 'less is more' philosophy, you will love this beauty trend. The beauty is that you don't require to do a 10 step Korean skincare routine for glowing skin, your regular CTM with serum added will give you dewy, hydrated skin too. Since the focus is more on hydration and less on shine, you can use a tissue paper to blot the areas that appear shinier than the rest of your face for a natural finish.
If you noticed, the skin doesn't have that glossy, glass-like finish. It has just a touch of radiance just on the cheeks, the tip of the nose and the centre of the forehead. The glow is soft and subtle. One more reason to ❤️this trend is that it's a more practical trend to follow too as it involves the use of minimal products.
For women who are always on the go or the slightly less motivated ones, the 'Cream Skin' trend is a fabulous one to try!
