Get the latest skin trend: Glass Skin!

Glass skin is the latest term for intensely moisturized, exceptionally smooth, even-toned, lit-from-within, glowing skin. Achieving this look requires a consistent skincare routine consisting of a cleanser, toner, serum, exfoliator, and a hydrating moisturizer. Choose products with humectants like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, that get below the skin's surface to hydrate from within and plump the skin's surface for an extremely smooth appearance. Paired with plenty of sleep, water, exercise, and healthy foods, you can expect to start seeing results in 2 to 3 weeks. Here is your step-by-step guide to achieving glass skin:

Step 1: Double-Cleanse Skin

• Start with Healthy + Happy Essentials™ Micellar Water for the first cleanse.

• Then, apply HH Science™ Daily Cleansing Foam for a gentle, hydrating second cleanse.


Step 2: Exfoliate Dead Skin

Sloughing off that top layer of dead skin is essential to evening out your skin's texture and fight dullness. Bonus: Exfoliating also helps the rest of your products penetrate your skin better, allowing them to work more effectively.

• Use HH Science™ Glow Reveal 2.0 to gently exfoliate dead skin and brighten up the skin quickly.

Step 3: Refresh Skin With Toner

• Gently wipe the entire face, chest, and decollate with HH Science™ Vitamin C Antioxidant Pads to maintain your skin’s pH balance while sweeping away excess oil and skin pollution.



Step 4: Use a Sheet Mask (Two to three times a week in the evening)

HH Science™ Hydrating and Brightening Sheet Masks contain humectants and antioxidants to plump up the skin. A skincare step where you have no choice but to kick back and relax for a while —what’s not to love? Add to that, they also happen to be the easiest way to soothe the skin, repair damage, and lock in and replenish moisture. Within 10-15 minutes, you can enjoy healthier skin and a brightened complexion. We recommend doing this 2-3 times per week.   
Apply HH Science™ Hydrating Sheet Mask or Brightening Sheet mask and leave on 10-15 minutes, then pat the excess product into your skin.


Step 5: Add a Brightening Serum

Get the moisture party started with the help of Serum! Serums are lightweight, water-based products with active ingredients that focus on brightening, hydrating, and nourishing the skin. Take our quiz to find a brightening serum for your skin type.


Step 6: Apply A Hydrating Serum

Though it may not be necessary to use a serum in addition to a brightening serum, if your goal is hydration, you will benefit from both. They are formulated with various active ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, glycerin, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients.
• Apply HH Science™ 92% Hyaluronic Acid Serum or HH Science™ 92% Hydrating Boost 

Step 7: Slather on Moisturizer

If we had to choose the most crucial step of your glass skin routine (aside from exfoliation, of course), it would be applying your moisturizer. Moisturizing is essential to lock in the active ingredients and hydration applied in the previous steps. Ingredients like ceramides, humectants, and emollients are great for hydrating, calming, and repairing the skin.
• Apply HH Science™ Microbiome Friendly Nourishing Cream or HH Science™ Barrier Repair + Moisture Lock as they strengthen your skin barrier while preventing water loss.

Step 8: Apply Eye Cream

The skin around the eyelids is extremely delicate and thin, so it can be the first area of your face to show dehydration and signs of aging. Fine lines are more visible when the skin lacks moisture, so use eye creams that are formulated with humectants and nourishing vitamins. To apply these, use your pinkie finger to gently tap your eye cream underneath your eyes and around the entire orbital bone. Do not get too close to the waterlines of your eyes, or you can irritate them.
• Use HH Science™ Good Morning Eye in the morning.
• Use HH Science™ Good Night Eyes in the evening.

Step 9: Top It with Face Oil

Since face oils aren’t humectants but rather emollients and occlusives — meaning they reinforce and protect your skin barrier — applying them at the end of your routine is important to seal in all that moisture into your skin. Jojoba Oil is a non-comedogenic oil that hydrates and balances skin sebum levels.
• Apply HH Science Jojoba Oil

Step 10: Protect with SPF

If you apply your glass skin regimen at night, your routine can end with your face oil. If you’re using your products during the day, sunscreen will be your final step. Sunscreen is the most important part of the skincare regimen to prevent signs of aging and sun damage. Prevention is key to maintaining healthy, glowing skin. Consider it your way of ensuring all your efforts to achieve glass skin are not in vain — and enjoy the dewy, glowing skin you've worked so hard for.
• Apply HH Science™ SPF based on skin type and whether you want a tinted option that can also be used as a primer/foundation.
