Glass Skin, known as 유리 피부 (Yuri-Pibu) is a current beauty trend that originated from Korea. The characteristics of someone with Glass Skin include a dewy, hydrated and healthy glow. Comparing to actual glass, the skin has to be transparent, smooth, and also free of blemishes and pores. Note that this is not to be confused with oily glossy skin.

The trend of achieving a healthy complexion has transcended past borders especially so in Asian countries. Gone were the days where we had to pack on foundation under layers of acne and pimples. These days, having good skin is more preferred than a thick layer of makeup.

How do we get glass-like skin, you’d ask? Of course, there are the basic skin care tips like drinking at least 2 litres of water every day, eating healthily and exercising regularly. Another method of improving your complexion is by using skin care products. The Koreans have always been one of the leading countries when it comes to the beauty industry; therefore their skincare routine has amassed a large following throughout the world.

One of the more popular skin care routines is the 10-step skin care routine and a basic description of the 10 steps is shown below.

The Routine

Step 1: Remove makeup with oil cleanser or micellar water

Step 2: Facial cleanser is used to rinse off the remaining makeup residue

Step 3: Continue with a gentle exfoliator to smoothen the skin

Step 4: Apply toner and allow it to air-dry

Step 5: Add on essence

Step 6: Apply booster products such as serums and ampoules

Step 7: Place sheet mask for at least 15 minutes

Step 8: Place eye cream

Step 9: Moisturiser

Step 10: Sun protection

Sounds time-consuming? You bet it is. This skin care routine would take at least 40 minutes and that is if you have quick hands. Don’t think you have enough time to and energy to do this every single day? What if I tell you that there is a skin care treatment that lasts 15 minutes, does not require you to do every day and yet you still can achieve the same results?

If you are looking for something that has almost immediate results, then our PDRN treatment might be your answer. Widely known for bringing youth back to the dull saggy skin, PDRN regenerates skin cells from deep within, resulting in the formation of new skin cells and the recovery of old damaged skin cells.

The benefits of PDRN include brightening, reducing enlarged pore, scars and wrinkles, oil control and more. For optimal results, it is recommended to receive three sessions per month and further maintenance once every half a year. The PDRN can also be done to young adults as a facial supplement to prevent ageing, shrink pores or treat acne scars.

All staff at Gangnam Aesthetics strive to provide the best treatments, results and service for our valued patients.
