Korean skincare has developed into a development not solely in Asia, but additionally in Western and European nations. Though in style, many nonetheless can’t distinguish the distinction between serum, essence, ampoule; Or they simply suppose that each skincare routine is normal without regard to the precise scenario of the pores and skin – and there are a lot of misunderstandings in regards to the strategy of Korean skincare.
Mistake #1: Korean skincare methodology solely works with Asian pores and skin.
This is, without doubt, one of the largest misconceptions about Korean magnificence. Opposite to what you see on TV, Korean ladies even have issues like, pimples, oily pores and skin, dry pores and skin, delicate pores and skin, and many others. The Korean skincare methodology works for everybody as a result of it isn’t only for Korean pores and skin or Asian pores and skin, it’s for all pores and skin sorts usually.
If you’re nonetheless skeptical, strive double cleaning within the morning and night for two weeks and see the way it adjustments your pores and skin. You’ll discover important variations, no matter your age, ethnicity, or pores and skin kind.
Mistake #2: No make-up merchandise for darker pores and skin.
It’s fairly a problem to discover a Korean make-up model that provides shades for darker pores and skin tones. Nonetheless, that’s slowly altering. Korean manufacturers are increasing their option to serve customers from all around the world. For instance, Missha M Magic Cushion (considered one of my favorite cushion merchandise) has tones from 21 (Mild Beige) to 31 (Golden Beige), which proves that Korean firms have come to thoughts. Figuring out the necessity of darker pores and skin tones aside from the acquainted Korean tone.
As Korean magnificence is more and more globalized, you will discover extra colors, and never simply with the inspiration. Modern merchandise, resembling Etude Home’s eyebrow tint, swimsuit everybody.
Mistake #three: You solely want to make use of sunscreen when it’s sunny.
It’s essential to apply sunscreen day-after-day. Whether or not it’s sunny or cloudy, snow or rain. If you’re uncovered to the skin world, or in case you are at dwelling all day and your private home has home windows – you want sunscreen. Don’t skip sunbathing even on weekends, in addition to skipping the neck space.
Along with the common use of sunscreen, the usage of sunscreen day by day helps shield your pores and skin from solar harm and prevents widespread pores and skin issues resembling, wrinkles, pimples scars, darkish spots, and in the long term – pores and skin cancers. If you wish to struggle the indicators of aging, use sunscreen day-after-day and put on sun shades and hats everytime you depart dwelling.
Mistake #four: Women and men want totally different skincare merchandise.
Males typically have bigger pores and oiler pores and skin than ladies. However, the truth is, every individual’s pores and skin wants are very totally different, and gender doesn’t have an effect on the pores and skin’s wants. So almost definitely the skincare merchandise for women and men are very related, and even containing the identical elements.
The one distinction is the product identifier and the packaging. This is the reason you could discover ways to learn the elements listing. You don’t have to limit your self to ladies or males’ merchandise, and males’ skincare habits usually are not essentially totally different from feminine.
Mistake #5: When you begin to struggle to age, it would make you develop previous quicker.
The concept of this error is: Anti-aging is just for the aged since you solely want anti-aging merchandise when your pores and skin reveals indicators of aging. Nonetheless, many Korean ladies begin anti-aging earlier than their pores and skin begins exhibiting indicators of aging, whilst early as 20. Prevention is vital. Anti-aging is solely a skincare routine, due to this fact it entails all ages, whether or not you’ve wrinkles or not.
If you’re younger and never keen on wrinkles or diminished pores and skin tone, do not forget that anti-aging shouldn’t be an issue too difficult or tough. Begin by merely double cleaning and apply eye cream each morning and night in addition to utilizing sunscreen day-after-day. When you have seen indicators of aging, it’s by no means too late to start out a correct skin care routine.
Mistake# 6: You solely must double cleanse at evening.
I used solely water and a foaming facial cleanser to clean my face in the morning, but all through the day my pores and skin nonetheless felt oily and greasy.
However it turned out, the greasy feeling was as a result of a mixture of sweat and oil that the pores and skin produced in a single day and what remained of the skincare merchandise I used the evening earlier than. Due to this fact, I switched to double cleaning each morning and night, and I observed a major distinction. If you would like your pores and skin to be extra even and really feel extra balanced, strive double cleaning in the morning.
Mistake #7: When you have oily pores and skin, including oil to your skincare routine will make your pores and skin extra oily.
This is, without doubt, one of the commonest errors about Korean skincare. When you have oily pores and skin, add oil to your skincare routine. You won’t remorse it! Spend money on an oil-based cleanser, and a moisturizer to assist steadiness the pores and skin so it produces much less extra oil. When you use merchandise which might be too harsh and drying, you’re eradicating the pure moisture out of your pores and skin, which in return will produce extra oil to offset. It’s a vicious cycle, utilizing an oil-based cleanser will assist break the cycle.
Mistake #eight: The indicators of aging solely seem if you find yourself previous.
Sadly, the indicators of aging might seem ahead of you suppose. This can be resulting from genetic elements or environmental harm. The very best factor you are able to do is apply sunscreen day by day and incorporate pores and skin lightening merchandise into your routine. When you stay in a space with a number of sunshine or in the event you like outside actions, you could pay particular consideration to your pores and skin.

You already know what your pores and skin kind are and have developed an ideal skincare routine. However after a couple of months of sticking to it meticulously, you notice this behavior shouldn’t be working, and you’re caught with the identical previous issues, or worse, utterly new issues. Why? Pores and skin kind might fluctuate relying on the season, age, and different random elements. You may have good pores and skin and instantly get pimples in your 20s or develop dry pores and skin like a plum tree while you attain the age of 30.
Ideally, you’ll examine how your pores and skin feels day-after-day and alter your habits accordingly. I prefer to have many selections in my skincare procedures, in case my pores and skin feels significantly dry or oily. Simply remember that your pores and skin kind can change and you could shortly meet its altering wants.
Mistake #10: Moisturizing cream replaces eye cream.
I’ve heard this earlier than, and I assumed so too. Utilizing your common moisturizer is certainly higher than nothing, however, in the case of moisturizing and firming the attention space, nothing is more practical than a watch cream. As we speak there are such a lot of selections out there, from inexpensive to luxurious and from water to dense. After all, in addition to something in skincare, the selection is yours. However, the eyes are the place you discover the primary indicators of aging, so taking excellent care of the attention space with one other step in your skincare routine won’t damage.
