If you are following the perfect skincare routine but still noticing no improvement in the skin, then you might be making a few mistakes that are preventing you from achieving the perfect Korean beauty glow!
Mistake 1: Wrong application of skincare products
It is possible that you might be using the right and best skincare products for your skin, but the way you are applying might be wrong, like rubbing the moisturizer on your face too aggressively can cause redness, irritation, wrinkles, etc.
Furthermore, when applying most skincare products, it is recommended to use only the fingertips in circular motions, and making sure not to press the skin aggressively or tug at your skin too much, especially around the sensitive areas of the eyes.
Mistake 2: You leave your skin dry mid-routine
Keeping your skin hydrated 24/7 is very essential for healthy, glowy skin. So, it is suggested to keep your skin damp throughout the process of your skincare regimen because, at the time of applying skincare products, skin is the most absorbent & will immerse the essential nutrients more effectively.
Picture yourself a damp sponge VS a dry sponge!
In case you have oily skin, I bet you would have experienced some dryness especially, after cleansing. To avoid this, use a face mist or a hydrating toner mist after cleansing to prevent evaporation & provide instant glow & hydration to the skin.
Mistake 3: Too Much, Too Soon
At the start, jumping straight into the famous 10-step Korean skincare regimen might not be a great idea for your skin.
Keeping it slow & minimal in the beginning & then adding up products gradually with time is a great way to achieve flawless skin. Try to use one product at a time.
If you’re a beginner, it is suggested to start with a 5-step routine according to your skin type & then slowly incorporate more products.
Mistake 4: Misconception about sheet masking every day is product overload
In Korea, sheet masking every day is done on a daily basis & is completely normal. Just make sure you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients used in the sheet masks. Using hydrating sheet masks like Midha Rice Facial Mask for Moisture every day is very helpful & if you’re struggling with large pores or excess sebum, sneak in a detoxifying mask like Maskafe sheet masks are best to use once or twice a week to revitalize tired skin.
How to use Maskafe sheet masks?
Cleanse the face. Apply the mask onto your skin. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes & take it off. Then gently massage the remaining essence and allow it to be absorbed into the skin. If you shower at night, then it is very beneficial to add a sheet mask to your evening routine. And if you want to save some time, try using sheet masking before the shower, and don’t forget to use it on your neck afterward for some additional neck treatment.
Mistake 5: Neglecting the rest of your body
Are you guilty of spending hundreds of dollars on your face, but still showing carelessness towards the rest of your body?
If yes, then you must start focusing on your other parts of the body too.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like using different products for different parts of your skin, then A7Heavens multitasking Midha Pure Rice Cream (Brightening, Whitening, and moisturizing) is your ideal partner! You can use it as a face, body, and hand cream.
Or look for the Axis-Y Cera Heart My Duo Cream for the combination skin to treat T & U zone on the face.
A7Heavens is the best online makeup store in Dubai from where you can get premium-quality Korean & other skincare products to achieve healthy, young skin.
Other than moisturizing, make sure you use SPF like VT Super Hyalon Sun Block or Axis-Y Complete No Stress Physical Sunscreen daily on exposed areas of your body before heading out, and exfoliate with Axis-Y Mugwort Pore Clarifying Wash Off Pack once or twice a week.
Mistake 6: Not being consistent
Achieving great skin is not always about using high quality, the best skin care products, or following a great skincare routine, but being consistent also plays an important role.
This means you must be patient & give your products proper time to work. Most of them need at least a month to do their job, so if you’re continuously jumping from one new product to another, you’re not giving them enough time to show optimum results.
