Unlocking the Secrets of Glass Skin: The Ultimate Guide for Skin and Dermal Professionals

Unlocking the Secrets of Glass Skin: The Ultimate Guide for Skin and Dermal Professionals

Achieving a flawless, dewy, and almost translucent "glass skin" is the pinnacle of skincare goals. Renowned for its luminous and poreless finish, glass skin has transcended K-beauty trends to become a global phenomenon. At Spa Circle, we understand the intricacies of this coveted look and have created a no downtime, professional Glass Skin Facial protocol that promises results.

This article will guide beauty salons, day spas, and skin clinics through the essential steps and key principles of creating a professional Glass Skin Facial, along with expert product recommendations from Spa Circle.

Key Principles of Glass Skin

1. Skin Smoothing

A cornerstone of the glass skin regimen is the emphasis on gentle, advanced exfoliation. This process not only stimulates cell renewal but also enhances the removal of redundant skin cells. By doing so, it boosts the skin’s capacity to absorb vital hydration and active ingredients, laying the foundation for a smooth, radiant complexion. We do not want to create too much inflammation during this step.

2. Skin Flooding

True glass skin is not just about slapping a shiny oil on skin, its about flooding the skin with layers of rich, hydrating elements. Our unique approach ensures that moisture is deeply embedded into the skin, promoting a plump, dewy appearance while enhancing cellular function and communication. This is not a one and done step, the whole facial includes multiple "Skin Flooding" steps.

3. Skin Nutrition

Infusing the skin with a cocktail of essential nutrients like Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and brightening actives is crucial. This nutrient-rich approach optimises cell health and occlusive ingredients to seal in all the goodness, ensuring lasting benefits and a stunning glow.

A true Glass Skin routine includes skin nutrition from a healthy diet, oral supplements & wellness herbal teas that can optimise skin health. 

The Glass Skin Facial Protocol

Cleansing Ritual

Begin with a double-cleansing routine to ensure the skin is pristine yet hydrated. Start with an oil or cream-based cleanser to dissolve makeup and impurities. Follow with a gel or milk cleanser to remove any residual debris while maintaining essential moisture levels.

Tone / Essence Emulsion

After cleansing, gently press an astringent, calming, and hydrating emulsion into the skin. This step is crucial as it prepares the skin to receive the full benefits of hydration and active ingredients that follow. This step is performed multiple times throughout a Glass Skin Facial. 

Tip: Do not use Cotton Rounds, just use fingertips to press into the skin. 

Gentle Exfoliation

Opt for a gentle exfoliator that smooths without causing undue inflammation. This ensures the skin is receptive to nutrients and hydration applied in subsequent steps.

Esthemax Hydrojelly Mask

Apply the Esthemax Hydrojelly Mask to create a 'vacuum seal' over the skin. This mask locks in the moisture and active ingredients from previous steps, intensifying their effects.

Serums and Moisturisers

Layer on serums rich in brightening actives, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, and Hyaluronic Acid. Finish with a ceramide and lipid-rich occlusive moisturiser to seal in all the hydrating and nutritive benefits, ensuring a glass-like finish.
