Who has the time? That’s the eternal question whenever anything requires more than a handful of steps, be it a makeup tutorial or smoothie recipe. And that’s what we’ve been asking of our skin-care routine lately, with no one having the time or energy for a 20-step extravaganza — even if that’s for the purpose of getting glass skin. But good news: We’ve got your answer in the form of the Glass Skin 2.0 kit, which delivers the gleaming radiance of glass skin in just three simple steps.
Before we get into it, let’s talk about glass skin as a concept. Our 2021 approach to glass skin is an evolved take that prioritizes inclusivity and accessibility. We believe glass skin — skin that looks healthy, radiant, and bouncy — can be achievable for all skin types, rather than being a pipe dream of your skin being flawless or looking poreless (words we’ve removed from our brand vocab, by the way).
It’s inclusive of all skin types, textures, and concerns, and relative to what you’re working with, whether that’s redness or breakouts. And to get glass skin, whatever that looks like for you, you can’t go wrong with a combination of brightening ingredients and water-retaining hydrators. They work together to give skin the dewy, reflective (but not at all greasy) glow that’s the hallmark of glass skin.
Another part of that accessibility is having a glass-skin routine that actually works for your life and schedule. So, instead of serving up a quick fix, our new Glass Skin 2.0 Kit is an abbreviated routine for glass skin that delivers an immediate glow while also targeting long-term goals, such as fading dark spots. This streamlined approach also helps you keep it consistent, so you can get both the aesthetics of glass skin ASAP and healthier, more radiant skin in the long run.
Here, the strategic lineup that you’ll find in this kit:
Step 1: Even out skin tone
Brightness gets bottled with Pineapple-C Bright Serum, which offers three types of vitamin C: 22% pineapple juice—one of nature’s biggest sources of C—as well as pure ascorbic acid and stable 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is a well-known tyrosinase inhibitor. Translation: It actually inhibits tyrosinase, a key enzyme in the pigment production process. In messing with pigment production, it evens out skin tone over time. It also contains natural AHAs and bromelain, pineapple fruit enzymes, to gently renew skin and remove dead skin cells.
Step 2: Deliver hydration
Moisturizer is a must for glass skin, and few are better than the Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer. The lightweight, oil-free gel-emulsion is packed with protective antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and amino-acid rich watermelon extract for a dewy glow and plump look. (Bonus: The cooling formula feels like a dream on a hot summer day.)
Step 3: Give skin a gleam
Getting your skin to its healthiest state takes consistency — and, of course, a little time. While glass skin might not happen overnight, you can still get the same aesthetic with a makeup-skincare hybrid, like highlighting serum. Our Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops are infused with niacinamide, a powerful ingredient that, like vitamin C, also (helpfully!) messes with pigment production for more even skin, soothes inflammation, and serves as an antioxidant. Dew Drops also offers hyaluronic acid and watermelon for moisture — all for that dewiness — while imparting a reflective glow sans the telltale white cast. You can also use it as a serum, or cocktail it with Pineapple-C Bright Serum to maximize the skin-care benefits.
Another perk: The mini sizes in this kit make it perfect for packing, so you don’t have to skip your glass skin routine when you’re traveling or on the go. This is a glass skin strategy that *actually* works for your schedule.
That said: If you’re looking for something to address large pores or uneven texture, look for products that pair BHA with polyhydroxy acid (or PHA) and fruit enzymes, which work together to gently resurface skin and clear pores. Our Watermelon Glow Up Kit takes a gentle approach to clogged pores and dull skin with Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner, Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer, and Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops.
The bottom line: Glass skin, clear pores, and other skin-care goals are possible for everyone. And with these kits, they can be effortless, too.
