Summer Glow Up: Essential Guide to Glass Skin

Summer Glow Up: Essential Guide to Glass Skin

Get ready to ditch the foundation and embrace the natural radiance of your skin! This summer, we're all about achieving the coveted "glass skin" look – a complexion so clear, even, and dewy it appears translucent. But fear not, this isn't just a K-beauty fad. With the right skincare routine, anyone can achieve a healthy, summer glow.

Double Cleanse: Gentle Yet Effective

The first step to achieving glass skin is a gentle double cleanse. This removes oil, dirt, and makeup without stripping your skin's natural moisture barrier. Look for a gentle cleanser, such as a jelly cleanser, to avoid drying out your skin. We recommend Sigi Skin's Kaleanser Face Wash which leaves your skin feeling moisturised and smooth with just one wash! 

Exfoliation: The Key to Smooth Skin

Exfoliation is key to removing dead skin cells that can dull your complexion and clog pores. You can choose from physical exfoliators (like crushed walnuts or jojoba beads) or chemical exfoliators (like glycolic or lactic acid). However, you should limit exfoliation to 2-3 times a week to prevent irritation. 

Sigi Skin's Bright Skies Peeling Gel Exfoliator not only removes dead skin cells but also brightens your skin, leaving you with a youthful radiance. It also preps your skin for better absorption of subsequent skincare products.

Toning: Hydration Boost

Have you heard of the "7 Skin method"? This technique involves applying toner to your skin seven times in a row, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next. The goal is to deeply hydrate and improve your skin's texture and appearance. However, you don't have to apply seven layers, it’s a flexible amount! Consider Sigi Skin's Dew Potion Essence Mist to up your toner game with a waterless mist packed with antioxidants to fight free radicals and slow down ageing.

Treat Your Skin with a Serum

Serums are an essential step for extra hydration. Hyaluronic acid is a common ingredient that helps hydrate your skin and prevent breakouts without causing dryness or flakiness. If you're unsure where to start, Sigi Skin's Blissful Radiance is a hydrating serum with anti-acne benefits.

Moisturise for Lasting Hydration

Look for lightweight, oil-free moisturizers with hyaluronic acid and ceramides for excellent hydration without clogging pores. A tip is to apply your moisturizer while your skin is still damp to lock in moisture! Our Idyllic Fields Moisturiser is perfect for day-time application where it sinks immediately into the skin, providing instant hydration without the sticky and greasy feeling even in humid weather. 

Sun Protection: Daily Must! 

Daily sunscreen use with SPF 30 or higher is essential to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which contribute to wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. Make sunscreen a non-negotiable part of your routine, even on cloudy days. Sigi Skin's Morning Glow Physical Sunscreen offers broad-spectrum SPF protection, hydration, and is water and sweatproof, making it perfect for outdoor activities.

Bonus Tip: Sheet Masks for an Extra Boost

Treat yourself to a sheet mask a few times a week for an extra dose of hydration and pampering. Sheet masks come in a variety of formulas to target different concerns. Our Tea-Tox sheet mask is perfect for calming inflammation and redness, providing instant relief. Use it 2-3 times a week for optimal results.

Remember, consistency is key! With dedication to this routine, you'll be well on your way to achieving that summer glow and rocking flawless, glass skin all season long.
