Cleanse Your Way to Glass Skin

Cleanse Your Way to Glass Skin

Even on your laziest days, cleanse your skin. Cleansing is one of the most essential steps because it dissolves away makeup and sweeps away excess sebum, grime, and other impurities that may have gathered on your skin during the day, helping prevent pores from clogging and gathering bacteria and other congestants. It’s key to keep cleansing gentle but thorough, so your skin is cleansed but not stripped dry, which can cause it to become dehydrated. Korean women typically use two cleansers, starting with an oil-based cleanser to remove oil-based makeup, SPF and other impurities (since water repels oil). This allows for effortless cleansing rather than tugging at your skin to remove that last bit of mascara. Our Peach Pudding Makeup Cleanser from Peach Slices is just as good as it sounds. The silky-soft cleansing cream, which stars peach extract and macadamia oil, dissolves away layers of makeup and impurities without tugging at skin, leaving it hydrated and supple.

Following with a water- based cleanser removes any remaining residue and leaves skin supple. The key is to find a gentle formula that won’t strip or dry out your skin. Celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian love our water-based Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser. Two powerful-yet-gentle sulfate-free cleansing agents do the heavy-lifting in drawing out impurities. All without stripping skin dry or disrupting the skin barrier. The pH 5.5 formula is then spiked with a cocktail of super-soothing ingredients like "cica," chamomile and camellia. This breakthrough cleanser starts off as a silky clear gel and lathers into the softest, milkiest foam for that perfect deep-cleanse. Hello, pure, clean, hydrated and profoundly calmed skin.

Toners Exfoliate & Help Balance Skin

Toners Exfoliate & Help Balance Skin

Toners help re-balance the pH level of skin after cleansing. Your skin’s pH level lets you know how acidic or alkaline it is on a scale of 0 (totally acidic) to 14 (totally alkaline), and skin is considered balanced when its pH level is in the 4.5 to 5.5 range — so, slightly acidic, which allows for your skin’s microbiome to thrive while fending off bad bacteria and harmful irritants. You can imagine why we stress the importance of keeping your skin balanced.

Cleansing can throw skin’s pH level off, and a toner helps “balance” it, which means bring it back into the happy range of 4.5 to 5.5. Peach & Lily The Good Acids Pore Toner does exactly that — it also gently exfoliates with a small amount of glycolic acid that’s effective and gentle enough for daily use, even for sensitive skin. The toner doesn’t just stop there, though; it also helps hydrate, soothe, and nourish skin, prepping skin for the products to follow.

Essences are Key in a Skincare Routine

Essences are Key in a Skincare Routine

One of the primary characteristics of healthy skin is that it is sufficiently hydrated, and the primary task of an essence is to drench skin with hydration. Essences come with other secondary benefits, of course, like brightening or, in the case of the Wild Dew Treatment Essence, protecting against the stresses of modern life. Both potent and hydrating, essences not only help fight breakouts, improve skin’s radiance and impart long-lasting hydration, but they are also formulated to sink deep and fast into skin. Using next-gen technology, Peach & Lily’s nod to the Korean beauty staple includes clean, fast-acting extracts that will leave you looking and feeling fresh as a daisy. Comprised of antioxidant-rich lotus extract, brightening niacinamide, age-defying yeast ferment, firming adenosine, protective bamboo extract and nourishing radish leaf extract, this will restore your skin to dewy goodness, and protect against stresses of modern life. Think of our Wild Dew Treatment Essence as a perfect skincare addition for those seeking just “a bit more” for their daily routine.

Serums Target Your Glass Skin Goals

Serums Target Your Glass Skin Goals

A serum is a treatment you can use to give your skin a boost and/or target specific skin concerns. It’s also a good way to make sure your skin is getting all the nutrients, hydration, and antioxidants it needs to thrive, which is exactly what the Peach & Lily Glass Skin Refining Serum was formulated to do. Packed with peach extract, madecassoside (derived from centella asiatica extract), peptides, niacinamide, and mountain yam extract, the Glass Skin Refining Serum is an easy way to glass skin!

We tested over two hundred formulas, including face tests on over forty cosmetic chemists in our partner lab (which doesn’t happen for every formula that’s developed in these labs, but the chemists knew that we needed to see results — undeniable results — so they took us up on the challenge), and tested and tested to see if it would be possible to truly create a product worthy of its name: Glass Skin Refining Serum.

Our formula is the one-stop shop for Glass Skin and is a revolutionary cocktail of peach extract, niacinamide, East Asian mountain yam, madecassoside, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to help hydrate, calm, brighten, and firm skin. Poreless, luminous, and translucent-looking skin is achieved when skin is well-hydrated and without inflammation and free radical damage.

Moisturizers Seal Everything In

Moisturizers Seal Everything In

A moisturizer provides another layer of hydration to skin, and then it serves as the final step in a routine by sealing everything in. Moisturizers contains occlusives, which create a barrier on the surface of skin that helps slow down transepidermal water loss, so hydration and all the other ingredients you’ve just applied can stay in skin. Moisturizing is not just all moisturizers do, though; they’re also another layer of nourishment and protection; so we recommend selecting one that is rich in beneficial ingredients.

The Peach & Lily Matcha Pudding Antioxidant Cream is packed full of matcha, one of the best sources of antioxidants, which help fight free radical damage caused by environmental stressors. The cream, which plays particularly well with the Glass Skin Refining Serum, also has cape lilac extract, niacinamide, and adenosine, which help brighten and firm skin.

Don’t Forget About the Eye Area

Don’t Forget About the Eye Area

The skin in your eye area is the thinnest and most fragile, and we like making sure it gets a little extra love. Eye creams are actually formulated to be lighter than moisturizers, so as to prevent overloading such thin, delicate skin, and different eye creams can target different concerns, from puffiness to fine lines to dark circles. We recommend the Aromatica Rose Absolute Eye Cream, which helps protect against visible signs of aging and dark circles, with a waterless formula made of an aloe base that’s been fortified with high-quality oils and plant-based extracts. We also love Eco Your Skin’s Volufiline15 Eye Essence, a luxurious sily-gel that plumps up fine lines and crow's feet in the delicate eye area. Glutathione and peptides help promote collagen production so skin retains more bounce and elasticity. In addition to lessening the look of crow's feet, this potent anti-ager also addresses under-eye wrinkles, lid creases, forehead and neck lines, thanks to 15% volufiline and polylactic acid. The lightweight texture is the perfect primer under makeup to visibly blur imperfections. Additionally, it helps prevent concealer or foundation from creasing and caking which can draw attention to lines and wrinkles.

What About Face Oils?

What About Face Oils?

It might seem counterintuitive because excess oil can contribute to clogged pores and, ultimately, to acne. It’s true that there are bad oils that can do just that, but there are also good oils that can actually help balance skin, regulate excess sebum production, and properly hydrate skin. There are a few ways oils can do that.

Studies show that the sebum of people with acne-prone skin tends to be thicker and stickier than “normal” sebum, and that texture can contribute to clogged pores. This thicker, stickier sebum is higher in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that’s heavy and super occlusive, so it can block the entrance to pores, trapping oil and bacteria inside.

The Pure Beam Luxe Oil helps provide skin with essential lipids. Pure Beam contains only seven ingredients: jojoba oil, squalane, grape seed oil, camellia japonica seed oil, sea buckthorn oil, olive oil, and vitamin E. All the oils in Pure Beam are plant-based and cold-pressed, and, altogether, it helps balance skin, whether by hydrating dry skin, helping regulate sebum production in oily skin, or boosting the natural skin barrier. An intact skin barrier is key to healthy skin because it helps skin retain hydration, nutrients, and balance. That, in turn, can help stave off breakouts and calm acne-prone skin.

Lastly, Don’t Forget About SPF!

Lastly, Don’t Forget About SPF!

Every morning, finish off your skincare regimen with either a dedicated sunscreen or a BB cream or cushion compact that includes SPF. If you’re looking for a standalone sunscreen, we recommend Rootree Mobitherapy UV Sun Shield: it’s fast-absorbing and lightweight, and it leaves zero white cast. Most of all, it works — powered by natural ingredients found in lush forests, Rootree's formulas are designed to be gentle and soothing on skin. This SPF includes hero ingredient, Korean Dendropanax, that leaves skin calm and supple.
