Basically, it means a good skin day to end all good skin days. Now, the real question is, how the heck do you get it? "Glass skin isn't achieved overnight, as the kind of translucency, smoothness and luminosity that looks like glass comes with healthy skin from within," says Peach and Lily founder Alicia Yoon. "You're not just focusing on superficial layers of skin, but truly improving your skin health, inside and out."
Yoon recommends a three-pronged approach to getting glass skin: "First, blast skin with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Second, hydrate your skin intensively. Finally, focus on brightening dark spots while refining texture."
So yes, it's definitely a journey — but luckily, Lee, Chang and Yoon have offered plenty of superstar Korean skin care products to help you achieve the coveted look. Keep reading to find out the best Korean skin care products for glass skin.

"To achieve glass skin, products that are incredibly high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients are great at helping to neutralize free radical damage that will 'cloud up' skin. I love the highly concentrated vitamin E serum from Eco Your Skin as it works fast," says Yoon.
The brand name "Yuri Pibu" directly translates to "glass skin," so it makes sense that products from the line (like this essence) were actually created to help achieve the look.
"We swear by the 7 skin method in order to achieve the glass skin look," say Lee and Chang. "The process includes adding multiple layers of hydrating toner to hydrate the skin from the inside out." They recommend toners from Whamisa to get the job done, suggesting the Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Essence Toner, $40, for dryer skin types and the Whamisa by Glow Recipe Green Tea Serum Toner, $21.99 for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

Like the Whamisa options, this essence is perfect for the 7 skin method — Yoon jokes that it's so versatile that you can use it for anything from "one layer for a refreshing sip of water for your skin" to "20 layers for dewy, plumped-up skin on the quick."
