The Glazed Donut Skin Trend by Hailey Bieber is set to be the trending skincare sensation of 2022.

It has been praised by celebs such as Gigi Hadid as well as San Francisco makeup artist, Nam Vo.

Hayley has been praised for her skincare routine by many celebs.

What is the ‘glazed donut’ complexion?

A glazed donut complexion is all about skin that is fully hydrated and looks as good as a glazed donut.

This means that it is glossy, smooth and as soft to the touch as a glazed donut.

The skincare routine provides relief to the skin after a long day of wearing makeup and is the secret to youthful skin that minimises pores, reduces wrinkles and looks undeniably luminous. 

To achieve the look, all it takes is 8 simple steps:

  1. OIL CLEANSER – According to Hayley, using an oil cleanser makes a huge difference for the skin. Not only does it remove all makeup, it also creates a clean base to begin the skincare routine.

What Hailey uses: Mara Beauty – Chia + Moringa Algae Enzyme Cleansing Oil ($98)

Alternative products:

For a cheaper alternative: Innisfree – Green Tea Cleansing Oil ($30)

For a cruelty and fragrance free cleanser: Klairs – Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil ($39)

2. HYDRATING CLEANSER – Try to use a milky and hydrating cleanser so that it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural moisture. Not only does it provide moisture to the skin, it also removes dirt, makeup and other debris.

What Hailey uses: Holifrog – Tashmoo Water Lily Milky Wash Cleanser ($54)

Alternative products:

            For an all-natural cleanser: Caudalie – Vinoclean Gentle Cleansing Almond Milk ($36)

            For a plant-based alternative: Sunday Riley – Ceramic Slip Cleanser ($50)

3. SERUM – In her video, Hayley uses a peptide serum while her face is still damp from cleansing so that it soaks into the skin better. Peptides can get through the first layer of skin on the face. Rather than the product sitting on the surface of the skin, it can sink in deeper.

What Hailey uses: Biba Los Angeles – Plant Stem Cell Peptide Serum ($95 USD)

Alternative products:

            For a serum from an upcoming brand: Laneige – Perfect Renew Youth Serum ($89)

            For a French owned serum: La Roche Posay – Toleriane Ultra Dermallergo Serum


4. MOISTURISER – Opt for a thicker moisturiser that will soak into the skin overnight and leave the skin feeling refreshed and hydrated in the morning.

What Hailey uses: Biba Los Angeles – Cream Barrier ($95 USD)

Alternative products:

            For a 24-hour moisturiser: Kiehl’s – Ultra Facial Cream ($52)

            For a peptide moisturiser: Skinfix – Barrier + Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream ($77)

5. FACIAL OIL – The purpose of using a face oil is for it to add further moisture to the skin while also cleansing it. Acting as a second level of protection for the skin, they have many hydrating and anti-ageing properties.

What Hailey uses: Furtuna Skin – Due Alberi Biphase Moisturising Oil ($128 USD)

Alternative products:

            For a weightless and easily absorbing oil: Biossance – 100% Squalane Oil ($69)

            For a luxury facial oil: SK-II – Facial Treatment Oil ($195)

6. SPOT TREATMENT – Dab a spot treatment onto any problem areas to help reduce any spots or break outs. Pimple stickers are also an alternative if a spot treatment cream is not preferred.  

What Hailey uses: Starface – Hydro Stars ($14.99 USD)

Alternative products:

            For an affordable treatment: Murad – Rapid Relief Spot Treatment ($35)

7. EYE CREAM – A tip from Hayley is to also apply eye cream onto the eyelid rather than just underneath it to prevent the skin from sagging in the long term. Other benefits of applying an eye cream include eye hydration, reduced puffiness as well as less fine lines and wrinkles.

What Hailey uses: BareMinerals – Ageless Phyto-Retinol Eye Cream ($66)

Alternative products:

            For a luxury eye cream: Chanel – Revitalizing Eye Cream ($115)

            For a more affordable cream: Youth To The People – Superfood Eye Cream ($54)

8. LIP BALM – Hayley always likes to end her night-time routine with by applying lip balm. After all, not only the skin needs looking after – so do the lips.

What Hailey uses: Aquaphor – Healing Ointment ($49.95)

Alternative products:

            For an afforfable lip balm: Laneige – Lip Glowy Balm ($23)

            For a sugar lip treatment: Fresh – Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy ($35)
