It’s fair to say that smooth, hydrated, and supple skin is still coveted in the skin care world. Over the years, this concept has evolved into different iterations, such as mochi skin, glass skin, and honey skin. Each is known and loved for its approach to a healthy complexion, but recently, a delicious new trend has entered the beauty chat and it has been popularized by none other than Hailey Bieber. Case in point: Glazed Donut Skin.

In one of her videos, Hailey breaks down her bedtime routine. “My standard when I go to bed at night is that if I’m not getting into bed looking like a glazed donut, then I’m not doing the right thing,” she confessed.

A Delicious Take On A Glazed Complexion 

A glazed donut skin is a new trend that denotes plump, nourished, and luminescent skin, similar to a glazed donut. It also captures a lit-from-within look that translates to a healthy complexion. And although it might sound identical to a glass skin finish, this particular trend focuses more on attaining the right moisture level while embracing your natural skin texture.

Healthy Skin Over Perfect Skin 

As mentioned earlier, this donut-inspired trend embraces your skin’s natural beauty. It’s less about perfecting but more about nourishing your complexion. Achieving a glazed donut skin also involves using fewer products, ideal for anyone who wants a minimal routine.

1. It Starts With The Right Skincare Routine

Achieving a glazed complexion doesn’t require an extensive skincare routine. The only non-negotiable steps are to cleanse, moisturize, treat, and protect the skin. Another thing to take into consideration are the formulations that you are using. Incorporate hydrating and nourishing products on your top shelf.

2. Reach For A Facial Mist To Get That Glow

A single spritz of the right facial mist can be your skin’s quick pick-me-up. And with the right formulation, it can also instantly hydrate the complexion. Not to mention, it leaves the skin with the right amount of dewy glow!

3. Find Base Products That Can Give You A Second-Skin Finish 

To achieve a second-skin like finish, swap your matte foundation with a lightweight tinted base. Slowly blend out so the pigment doesn’t cling to dry patches. Reach for your trusted concealer and apply it to areas that need coverage.

4. A Case Of Color 

Adding color is integral to the look. For a natural-looking flush, go for blushes that come in a cream formula. Simply start with a soft wash, and add where needed. For the lips, swipe on a tinted lip balm for hydrated lips with a wash of color.
