Spring's hottest skincare trend is here, all thanks to Hailey Bieber.
In her latest "Getting Ready for Bed" skincare routine, she gave the details on what products she uses to give herself that glazed glow. Now famously referred to as "glazed donut skin," we are here to tell you how to get the plant-powered version of the look.
What is Glazed Donut Skin?
At its core, the glazed donut look is all about hydration. Using the right combo of potions & lotions to achieve a lush dewy-sheen before bed so that when you wake up in the morning your skin still looks & feels totally nourished. It's more about supporting the skin & focusing on the overall health of the skin barrier function to create a natural "glazed" look that doesn't look or feel greasy. Scroll down for our step-by-step ritual to achieve the look.
1. The Double Cleanse: Facial Oil Cleanser + Facial Cream Cleanser
“I started [oil cleansing] during quarantine, & it has honestly made the biggest difference in my skin,” she says, “So that’s how I take my makeup off now. I don’t do it any other way.”
We couldn't agree more. We are obsessed with using an oil cleanser to remove makeup, sunscreen, & other pollutants from our skin. An oil cleanser gently rinses away debris while being super hydrating so your makeup comes off easily & your skin barrier function or natural PH is never compromised. Our Facial Oil Cleanser contains ingredients like Marshmallow Root Oil, Papaya Leaf Extract, Grapefruit Extract, Olive Squalane & more.
Following up with a cream cleanser gently removes any remaining oil & dirt while adding even more hydration to the skin's surface. It also preps the skin for any products you are going to use as a nourished canvas actually draws moisturizers deeper into the dermis. Our Facial Cream Cleanser contains ingredients like Chamomille Flower Extract, Aloe Leaf Juice, Cucumber Fruit Extract, Japanese Green Tea Leaf Extract, & more.
"I like cleansers that don't get super foamy. I prefer something that's a milkier, hydrating, nourishing wash. I never like for my skin to feel dry & stripped & tight after I wash it," she says.
2. Peptide Serum
Peptides are amino acids that are the building blocks of certain proteins needed by the skin, like collagen, elastin & keratin. Basically, they are the ultimate skin food. Our Face & Eye Serum is rich in plant-based peptides & helps to reduce inflammation, support the synthesis of collagen & elastin, reduce dark circles, fine lines & more. A soothing & lightweight formula that absorbs quickly into the skin offering lots of nutrients. Other ingredients include Aloe Leaf Juice, Glycerin, Cucumber Fruit Extract, & Rose Absolute.

3. NighT Cream
“At nighttime, I typically go with more intense moisturizer,” says Bieber. “Something thicker, just to kind of soak into my skin overnight.”
When we sleep, our skin goes into repair mode, rebuilding cells & tissues, which is why removing makeup & getting lots of sleep is so important. Applying thicker products to the skin during your evening ritual allows for the skin to have more nourishment while it works its magic. Our Rejuvenating Night Cream is loaded with Vitamin E, Marine Collagen, Hydrolyzed Elastin, CO2 Extract Pomegranate Oil, CO2 Extract Saw Palmetto Berries Oil, Frankincense, Myrrh & more.
4. Glaze-inducing Facial Oil
The facial oil is what will ultimately give you that desired sheen. That glistening glazed donut
glow will be fully achieved with the addition of a beautiful facial oil. Oils are occlusive, meaning that they lock in moisture, increasing your routine’s efficacy leaving skin soft, smooth & "glazed". Our Botanical Seed Facial Oil contains over 10 plant oils & extracts including Camellia Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Camelina Oil, Squalane, Asparagus Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Rosehip Oil, Borage Oil, Milk Thistle Extract & more.
5. Last but not least, never skip the balm
The final step of the glazed donut look is to hydrate the lips with some lip balm. We always end our skincare ritual, morning & night, with lip balm. Because the skin around the mouth, especially the lips, is so thin it's important to keep it moisturized to prevent dry & cracked skin
regardless of the time of year. Our Lip Balm contains Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Hyaluronic Acid & more.
So there you have it! That's the complete Bishop Botanicals guide to glazed donut skin, the hottest beauty trend of 2022.
Remember, the key is ultra-hydrated & nourished skin starting with how you cleanse & not forgetting to finish with the lips.
