How To Get Glass Skin At Home In 4 Easy Steps

It is super easy, to begin with. The most essential element in the step towards achieving glass skin is that your skin, especially your face needs to be free of any make-up when you sleep. As our skin restores and repairs itself overnight, it is essential that we leave our face natural and free from any kind of make-up.

So... without wasting any further time, let's get started with the procedure to get glass skin at home:

1. Cleanse, Or May Be Double Cleanse

Cleansing is quite an essential element in achieving glass skin. Always keep your skin hydrated and most importantly, wash it with water whenever you can. This will help to remove all impurities and dirt from your skin, leaving it flawless.

2. Apply A Toner

Next in the queue is a toner. Always use a hydrating and a natural toner for your skin. And before going to sleep, ensure that you have washed your face thoroughly and apply a toner.

3. Moisturiser Is Essential

Once you have applied the toner, you must go for a good and natural moisturiser. Well, for a fact, you must know that for achieving glass skin, you need a moisturiser. A moisturiser helps to lock in the hydration in your skin, leaving behind a smooth, and soft texture.

4. Seal The Deal With An SPF

Lastly, as always, you need to protect your skin from any kind of damage by using an SPF. You obviously do not want your skin to be tanned. Well, guess what, you can apply SPF while you are at home too. It is not a necessity that you need to apply SPF while going out in the sun.
