Want to know how to achieve baby-soft skin? We’re here to guide you! Before we jump into it, what exactly is "baby-soft skin"?
All about “Baby-Soft Skin”
Synonymous with “glass skin,” baby-soft skin can be described as skin that is dewy, pore-less, and translucent looking. Baby-soft skin results in a radiant complexion that has you glowing from within. In Korean culture, “glass skin” is a certain type of flawless complexion many people strive to achieve. The Korean term “chok chok” encapsulates this type of complexion and describes skin that is quite literally moist and dewy.
Have you been trying to achieve baby-soft skin, but can’t seem to get it no matter what you try? Here are five tips to help you get baby-soft skin!
Tip #1: Exfoliate
Exfoliating is one of the easiest ways to get smoother, more radiant skin. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and built-up dirt on the surface of the skin. It also promotes skin regeneration and gives the skin barrier a deep cleanse. There are two methods of exfoliants, chemical (BHAs & AHAs) and physical (Scrubs) exfoliants. Both are equally effective, but you should pick them based on your skin type. Exfoliants should be used 1-2 times a week, but some exfoliants are gentle enough for daily use.
Tip #2: Avoid Picking at the Skin
A common mistake that may be stopping you from achieving baby-soft skin is picking at your skin. Picking at a pimple can cause bacteria to push deeper into the skin, causing redness, irritation, and swelling. This can also cause severe acne scars. Instead of picking at your skin, we recommend using acne patches or other spot treatments to deal with problem spots!
Tip #3: Wear SPF
You’ve heard it a million times, but wearing sunscreen every day is incredibly important. UV radiation is very damaging to the skin, as it can destroy collagen, cause premature skin aging, and increases the risk of skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen daily and re-applying throughout the day is a surefire way to get baby-soft skin.

Tip #4: Hydrate/Moisturize
Give your skin a hydration boost with the right moisturizer(s). Regardless of your skin type, you should always use moisturizer. Making sure your skin is hydrated is the key to getting a soft and smooth complexion. When looking for the perfect moisturizer, you should look for hydrating skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides.
Tip #5: Get Enough Sleep
Yes, beauty sleep is a real thing! Your skin takes in a lot of stress and other aggressors throughout the day; during the night, your body repairs itself and recovers. Not getting enough sleep can seriously wreak havoc on your skin, as it can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin. Ensuring you’re well-rested helps to give your skin a smoother and more radiant appearance.
