Dolphin skin is a new beauty term used to describe a glossy, radiant, and fresh hydration makeup look. Dolphin skin is a new concept of “inhibition,” which refers to the glowing, glass-like radiance or, in fact, the wet, dewy look.

To consult with skincare experts and find out their insights into ways to get radiant skin, Health Shots spoke to Dr. Monica Kapoor, celebrity esthetician and director at FLAWLESS Beauty Clinics and ILACAD Institute.

Dr. Kapoor says, “There are two ways to achieve this look. The first is consistent skin care, and the most immediate way is how to apply makeup. It’s all about the shimmering, lustrous, ultra-radiant skin that characterizes these marine mammals. We can recreate this look with makeup too, but A great skin routine is a permanent way to get it done.”

Dolphin skin follows the trend of glass skin and the idea is to make skin look luminous with a high-voltage glow. The look actually involves the use of quite a few products and the trick is to build towards the look by applying the products in thin, sheer layers.

“We can get dolphin skin by incorporating a few specific products into your skincare routine to give yourself a glowing look from within. The right skin care is key to getting the look. It’s about striking the right balance between hydration and exfoliation. Only well-exfoliated and moisturized skin Adequately it will shine enough to imitate the luster of a dolphin’s skin.” Dr Kapoor says.

5 ways to get dolphin skin:

1. Peel

We should always exfoliate our skin regularly, either with a gentle, physical or chemical exfoliator. We can remove dead cells with chemical peels using alpha hydroxy acids or beta hydroxy acids. It increases skin cell turnover resulting in brighter, smoother skin.

2. Purge

For Dolphin skin, always use a daily moisturizing cleanser. Double cleansing is a huge part of your Korean skincare routine. The idea is to completely free the skin of any oil, dirt and dead skin cells for better absorption of skin care products.

3. Essence and serum

Next, use a face serum infused with hyaluronic acid that gives the skin instant hydration and locks in moisture. Koreans also use snail extract on their skin to add that extra layer of hydration and plumpness to their skin.

4. Rich Moisturizer

Cherry blossoms are one of the most used Korean skincare ingredients in moisturizers. These add moisture and impart a beautiful peach glow to the skin due to their rich content of antioxidants. “You can add two drops of rose oil to the routine, as it absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy and can be used even under makeup,” says Dr. Kapoor.

5. Matte sunscreen

Wearing SPF is non-negotiable, whatever your skin type. Choose a sunscreen that has a matte formula because we focus on shiny skin. All you have to do is choose the right formula for your skin type and complete your skincare routine with an SPF.

6. Face oil

For an extra boost of hydration and the final layer of a radiant glow, you can add a few drops of a face oil like jojoba oil or rosehip oil to your skincare routine. “People with acne-prone or congestion-prone skin should avoid these essential oils,” Dr. Kapoor suggests.

Dolphin skin makeup tips:

  1. For a more immediate effect, use a dewy primer on the skin before applying makeup. Next, we should follow it up with a dewy foundation and plenty of highlighter.
  2. Highlight the raised areas of the face and avoid using powders or moisturizers because the goal is to glow. Even blush should be cream.
  3. If you want a powder, use a shimmering, hydrating face powder to keep the glow in.
  4. Then, at the end, use a non-alcoholic fixing spray that is not too dry. Look for a glow setting spray to complete your look and add shimmering shine.

But ladies, don’t forget that healthy skin is more important than any beauty trend. To achieve this, the starting point is to follow a healthy diet rich in good fats and omega-3 sources. Don’t forget to throw that smartphone away and sleep long and beautifully!
