Glazed Donut Skin

Understanding why this impossibly dewy look is all about proper skincare.

According to historians, the glazed donut was invented by Hanson Gregory, an American baker, in 1847. According to social media, the glazed donut phenomenon was invented by Hailey Bieber, an American model, in 2022. When Bieber dubbed her impossibly dewy, perfectly smooth, gleaming complexion “glazed donut skin” she inspired millions online to ask: How can we get it?

Because while anyone can easily achieve a frosty gleam with makeup, the appeal of Bieber’s glazed donut skin is that it appears even when she is fresh-faced. Ready to get in on the glow? Read on for our glazed skin essentials.

It Starts With a Healthy Skin Barrier

Dewy skin isn’t simply achieved by slathering on moisturizer. In fact, “The whole concept of skin moisturization is a misnomer,” explains dermatologist Jenna Huld Eysteinsdóttir. “You cannot moisturize the skin, but you can control the loss of water from the skin, known as transepidermal water loss. When the amount of water the skin loses decreases, the water content of the skin increases.” And the key to preventing transepidermal water loss is to maintain a healthy skin barrier. At BL+ we believe a healthy skin barrier is crucial to preventing signs of skin aging and maintaining hydratedhealthyradiant skin. Our BL+ COMPLEX (found in BL+ The Serum, BL+ The Cream, and BL+ Eye Serum) targets the deepest layers of the epidermis where patented Blue Lagoon Silica improves the skin’s natural functions and promotes a strong skin barrier, preventing water loss.

It Requires A Truly Effective Moisturizer

Most often, moisturizers fall into two categories: humectant and occlusive. “Humectant ingredients hold water in, and occlusive ingredients stop water loss,” explains Huld Eysteinsdóttir. “The most effective moisturizers include both.” Such is the case with BL+ The Cream, which is formulated with the humectant hyaluronic acid, plus ceramides and squalene to seal in hydration without clogging pores. Smooth onto your skin morning and night for a dewy gleam that is both instant and long-lasting

The Finishing Touch: A Wet Glow

For the ultimate glazed look, press a small amount of oil into your skin after completing your makeup routine. Focus on the high points of the face, and if you have oily skin be sure to avoid the T-zone (or skip this step altogether). Blue Lagoon Algae Bioactive Concentrate Face Oil instantly enhances skin radiance, while promoting a smoother and healthier complexion.
