Why is Everyone Crazy Over Glass Skin?

Korea is known for holding high beauty standards in the world, particularly in Asian countries. The latest K-beauty trend is not a product or a device, but how your skin should look.

Now, another term has been added to the beauty lexicon: Glass skin. Glass skin is just a fancy name for clear, poreless, luminous skin that have seemingly transparent skin. People with glass skin have glowing faces that are dewy and firm, without any scars or pigments on the flawless skin. In other words, it means having super smooth skin that is glossy and has a reflective finish. 

The hot topic in town is owning complexion so smooth, so clear and translucent that it looks like a sheet of glass. Currently trending on social media, this trend is called ‘glass skin’.

Sounds impossible to achieve glass skin? We talk to Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics on how we can be the envy of all your friends by owning poreless, crystal clear skin. 

Step 1: Minimise your pores

Let’s start with the foundation of the skin. Having a glossy look with enlarged pores will definitely create an impression of oily skin. Enlarged pores are best dealt with using a carbon laser peel treatment. The doctor applies a thin layer of medical grade carbon on the skin. When the laser interacts with the carbon, it instantly vaporizes the carbon. At the same time, the toxin and debris lodged deep in the pores will also be removed by the laser. When done regularly, you will see a visible reduction of enlarged pores. 

Step 2: Erase dark spots and pigments

Glass skin cannot be achieved if your skin is dull and covered with pigments. Laser treatments such as Sylfirm and PicoSure Pigment Laser are 2 of the latest pigment-reducing lasers in Singapore. Sometimes, I may recommend chemical peel treatment to remove the top layer of dead skin cells to brighten the skin.

Reducing pigments on the skin is often not straightforward. We need several sessions and different treatments to effectively reduce the dark pigments on the face.

Step 3: Exfoliate the skin regularly

The skin undergoes renewal all the time. Newer, fresher-looking skin grows from below, pushing the new skin to shed. In order to expose the newer skin, one must be committed to regular exfoliation, using good blemish-fighting products to remove every trace of make-up from the face at the end of the day.

Use a gentle exfoliating scrub at home or opt for a medical-grade facial treatment for a deep, effective exfoliation.

Step 4: Moisturize the skin

You need to keep the skin as moisturised as possible. Remember that glass skin means to keep your skin deeply hydrated and moisturised. Look for a good moisturiser that can seal in all the goodness and protect your skin at the same time.

Step 5: Protect the skin

Nothing damages the skin more than the harmful UV rays. In a tropical country like Singapore, it is almost impossible not to be exposed to the sun.

A great way to reduce any form of severe damage by the sun and reduce sun exposure is to apply a thick layer of SPF50 sunscreen. For our climate, SPF50 is the recommended range you should go for. Anything less than SPF50 will provide insufficient protection for your skin.

You should apply sunscreen about 45 minutes before you are exposed to the sun. Reapplying sunscreen every 3 hours is recommended, unless you are swimming, which you should reapply every hour for optimal protection.

Step 6: Skin renewal and tightening

Achieving glass skin may be challenging if you have wrinkly, aging skin.

In such circumstances, the easiest way is to seek help from a medical aesthetic doctor. Options such as micro-botox, Rejuran Healer, and Ultherapy can help to reverse signs of aging on your skin.
