In case you are wondering what the latest beauty trend is right now, you have come to the right place. People with baby soft skin is no longer the center of attraction or as desirable as they were previously.
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’. It means having super smooth skin that is glossy with a reflective finish.
Sounds impossible to achieve glass skin? We talk to Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics about how you can be the envy of all your friends by owning poreless, crystal clear skin.
What Is Glass Skin?
Dr. Siew Tuck Wah: Glass skin – simply put – looks exactly as it sounds. The end state of having glass skin is to make sure your skin is so flawlessly shiny that it looks like a pane of glass. Some people have pointed out that having glass skin can be mistakenly viewed as oily skin, and that is not a desirable trait to have.
The trick to having glass skin without looking oily is to make sure that the complexion is clear and the skin surface is smooth, with no traces of blackheads or whiteheads. To successfully achieve the ultimate glass skin, facial wrinkles, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and scars must be eliminated from the skin surface. These skin conditions prevent the skin from looking reflective and clear.
How To Achieve Glass Skin?
Dr. Siew Tuck Wah: 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 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.
Glass skin cannot be achieved if your skin is dull and covered with pigments. In my practice, I devised a combination laser treatment for pigmentation that combats even the most stubborn pigments. Skin Illumination Program is power-packed with not one, but four different types of effective pigment-reducing lasers. These four lasers complement one another to work at different layers of the skin to break down even the most stubborn pigments.
In addition to reducing pigmentation and minimizing enlarged pores, 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 facial treatment for a deep exfoliation.
For people who are looking for a more intense skin repair treatment, Total Skin Renewal Program is the perfect choice. It is a 3-session program that combines a proprietary blend of Rejuran Healer, botulinum toxin, and dermal filler to promote skin healing and address all aspects of skin aging. Using micro-injections, the unique age-reversal potion is administered into the superficial layer of the skin. So, if you fancy giving it a try, you will see an improvement in skin texture and get a glassy glow with Total Skin Renewal Program.
Once the skin foundation is established, you should double-cleanse your face using an oil-based cleanser followed by a PH-balancing cleanser. The trick is not to cleanse your face too much that the skin becomes overly dry. Place a thin layer of toner, essence, and serum, and finally a thin layer of moisturizer to seal everything in and protect your skin.
With these beauty secrets, you are ready to go out to snap a selfie with your bestie and show off your impeccable complexion to the world!
