Thanks to the rise in popularity of Korean skincare, glass skin has become a coveted look for the past few years. But what exactly is glass skin? And how can you get it?
Keep reading to find out what glass skin is and products to use for this juicy skin texture.
What Is Glass Skin?
The glass skin trend originated in South Korea and started appearing in the United States around 2017. Glass skin is a skin texture that is luminous, juicy, and plump. It’s the post-facial glow without the facial. The skin looks so dewy and poreless that the texture appears perfect and almost transparent, like glass. It is typically associated with exceptionally healthy-looking skin.
It can be challenging to achieve this appearance in your skin. Glass skin usually requires several types of high-quality products in your routine.
Glass skin also requires you to use these same products every single day. Depending on your genetics and hormones, it can take a few months to achieve glass skin. The key to achieving glass skin is patience and consistency.
Glass Skin Routine
Here is a routine of high-quality products that will give you the appearance of glass skin.
Step One: Cleanse
Deep cleansing is a must to get blemish-free glass skin. Our Perfect Cleansing Foam gently cleanses to remove impurities and suits dry to normal skin types. Do you have oily skin? Our Perfect Cleansing Gel removes excess sebum while maintaining moisture levels.
Step Two: Exfoliate
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells from the surface to reveal bright and plump skin. The Perfect Cleansing Scrub efficiently removes dead skin cells without stripping your skin's natural moisture barrier. Because of this, this scrub is appropriate for all skin types.
Step Three: Tone
Toner restores your pH balance and soothes your skin, making it soft and supple. Our Perfect Balancing Toner instantly calms skin and evens out your skin tone. It has both hyaluronic acid and a humectant called sodium PCA which together provide immense hydration for your skin.
Step Four: Eye Cream
The skin around our eyes is the thinnest and most sensitive part of our face, which means that it requires extra care. Our WW Eye Cream is a great glass skin product because it illuminates and hydrates with ingredients like niacinamide. It also has brightening capabilities for dark under-eye circles.
Step Five: Serum
Glass skin is bright and luminous. The Perfect “C” Treatment Serum is a glass skin serum because it hydrates and brightens. It contains two types of vitamin C, which can help fade the appearance of sun damage or hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that can help protect your skin from free radicals and keep your skin youthful longer.
Step Six: Moisturize
Moisturizer locks in all the work done so far to achieve glass skin. Our WW Cream illuminates skin and helps to fade sun damage and hyperpigmentation. It provides radiant hydration and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also protects your skin from pollutants and environmental aggressors.
Step Seven: Sun Care
The last step is to protect your now bright and hydrated skin. Prolonged sun exposure can age your skin quickly and give you the opposite of glass skin. Ending your skincare routine with our WW Day SPF 40 helps protect your skin from further sun damage and keeps your skin hydrated and fresh throughout the day.
Additional Products to Use for Glass Skin
While the above should be your daily routine, it doesn’t hurt to add a few products periodically to help give you glass skin.
Ampoules are products with a high concentration of active ingredients. The Super Ampoules are a four-week treatment to reduce the appearance of aging and give a youthful glow with powerful ingredients like niacinamide, Superox-CTM, and MelavoidTM. Due to the high potency, the treatment can produce long-lasting effects and give you results in just four weeks. It is recommended to use this treatment twice a year maximum.
The Anti-Aging Mask is a great overnight mask that provides moisture replenishment and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains antioxidants that help soothe skin inflammation.
If you need an instant radiance boost we have the Perfect Mask for you. This mask has a high concentration of ingredients like green tea extract, ginkgo biloba extract, and a bio-engineered renewal complex that rejuvenates your skin and gives you an instant healthy glow. Use this mask weekly to get glass skin sooner.
