If you are reading this, you’re either a skincare practitioner or someone who’s interested in good skincare, so you’ve probably heard of the term “Glass Skin”.
In case you haven’t, here’s a quick definition for you: glass skin is used to define a skin that is exceptionally smooth, glowing, and dewy that it looks like glass. It was originated in the Korean beauty scene and quickly took over the beauty industry (and the ‘Gram, obvs), becoming a highly sought-after effect.
This new beauty trend is very popular among celebs such Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Aniston, who have seemingly pore-less skin – making them look way younger than they actually are. Genetics surely help, but let us tell you this: #GlassSkin is definitely achievable, although there’s no magic product that gives a glowing, lit-from-within complexion: the magic is rather in the combination of multiple products and ingredients that work in synergy to wake up and revitalise the skin.
Long-lasting results thanks to the WOW fusion® device
The K-beauty regimen for Glass Skin includes several steps: cleansing, exfoliating, toning, nourishing and moisturising, moisturising and more moisturising. The WOW facial® is very similar in the way that it includes six meticulously ordered steps: the skin is prepped, resurfaced and cleansed to prepare it for the real star of the treatment: the WOW fusion® serum, a hyper-personalised cocktail of ingredients, that contains vitamins, minerals and amino acids that work in synergy to heal and revitalise the skin as well as improve the appearance of pores for that #GlassSkinEffect.
The WOW fusion® device combines the benefits of microneedling with those of mesotherapy: the active ingredients can flow deep down into the dermis, and the tiny traumas from the needles promote cell renewal, so the skin will remain stronger and healthier (read glowing) in the long term. The skin benefits from the injected ingredients more than when they are simply applied on the superficial layer of the skin and can then change how it works thanks to the skin-loving active serums.
There are different serums used in the WOW fusion® device, all created to treat a different skin type: from super hydrating high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid to revitalising R-Vitamin complex, your WOW fusion® practitioner will be able to pick the perfect cocktail for your needs after a thorough skin consultation.
After treating your skin with the WOW fusion® device, the following steps are all designed to help the skin heal and renew: the WOW LED mask helps rebuild elastin and collagen and the WOW facial mask surcharges the skin with hydrating ingredients for the ultimate lustrous appearance.
The skin is then protected using Synergy 6 NX-GEN SPF 50, an ultra-light-consistency sunscreen that not only protects from the sun but also from pollution and from device screen blue rays.
Glass skin = WOW skin
To achieve a dewy, luminous and glassy complexion, the skin needs to be in its healthiest state possible. A healthy diet and a balanced lifestyle are a great start, but skincare also plays a big role. If the K-beauty experts will tell you that the golden rule to truly flawless skin is moisturising, we will add that working from within is also as important: in order to heal, the skin needs to change on a cellular level. Cellular renewal does not happen from one day to the other, so another thing to keep in mind if you lust after #GlassSkin is consistency: a daily, personalised skincare routine will give you smooth skin over time.
After a WOW fusion® treatment, practitioners will advise you which are the best products and ingredients to use on your skin, and will also suggest how often you should have a WOW fusion® treatment in order to keep that #WOW glow.
