The glass skin trend

Helping clients to achieve the trending flawless “glass” skin look is easier than you may think. The team at Zemits explains how

Glass skin, a term inspired by Korean beauty trends, refers to incredibly smooth, even-toned, and radiant skin, resembling the clarity and sheen of glass. This sought-after look requires a strict skincare routine focusing on hydration, exfoliation, and nourishment. While achieving such flawless skin may appear daunting, the journey from aspiration to reality is within reach with targeted treatments. 

The hallmark of glass skin lies in its remarkably smooth surface, devoid of bumps or rough texture. Beneath this surface, optimal hydration is crucial, with the skin retaining a significant amount of water to achieve a dewy, lustrous appearance that effortlessly catches and reflects light. A plump, firm complexion adds to the overall allure, completing the illusion of flawless, translucent skin.

How to deliver “glass skin” for your clients

While some skincare trends focus on certain products that promise instant visual results, achieving glass skin requires a multi-dimensional approach. Experts from Zemits UK gathered the most effective protocols, allowing you to build a glass-skin menu in your beauty room.

Essentially, “glass” skin comes from exfoliation, pore cleansing, deep hydration and poreless skin texture.

As we age, the natural process of cell regeneration decelerates, causing a delay in the shedding of dead skin cells and the generation of new ones. This sluggish turnover can contribute to dull, rough, and dry skin accumulation as old cells accumulate on the skin’s surface. Additionally, the build-up of dead skin cells can increase oil production and block pores, potentially resulting in blemishes and acne.

Exfoliating facials have always been among the industry’s most in-demand skincare services, whether an abrasive exfoliator like diamond microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. Zemits developed the HydroDiamond Facial: a groundbreaking skin exfoliation treatment that combines diamond microdermabrasion and a gentle chemical peel with serums that use a combination of lactic, gluconic and salicylic acids, all known as safe-forskin acids that dissolve debris.

Deep hydration is a key element of a glass-skin regimen. Zemits recommends introducing transdermal delivery of moisturising products with humectants such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, using either electroporation (no-needle mesotherapy) or phonophoresis.

Cryotherapy is another step for anyone who wants flawless skin, especially those who feel their pores are visible and their skin looks dull. During a cryo (intense cold) treatment of the skin, blood vessels contract, and pores tighten. The blood vessels dilate quickly once the skin returns to its regular temperature. This increases oxygen and blood circulation, making skin more glowy.

Zemits Verstand HD is an eight-in-one, multi-application system designed to treat numerous skin concerns.

Therefore, introducing this device to your practice will allow you to add trending glass facials to your menu.

It’s important to remember that there is no shortcut to achieving flawless, ethereal-looking skin; it requires consistency and commitment to skin treatments.

Establishing achievable goals and realistic expectations with your clients is essential to guarantee future bookings and long-term relationships.
