Not only teens but adults are addicted to Netflix and other streaming apps, getting a subscription to unwind may sound good to de-stress but we want you to be gentler in your skin, we should consider getting a full night's sleep.
In these fast pace changes, we sacrifice our daily life for enjoyment, working, and another unhealthy lifestyle. Have you noticed any changes in your skin?
Here are some signs that your skin is tired:
- Dark Circles
Sleep deprivation is a problem that affects a lot of people. You dilate your blood vessels if you don't have enough regenerative sleep at night. There is an increase in blood flow as a result, and the darker tint generated by the increased blood volume is more evident under your eyes since the skin beneath your eyes is thinner. Getting at least seven to eight hours of sleep a night can help lessen the look of dark circles.
- Puffy Eyes
Tiredness can also cause puffiness under the eyes. Due to excess fluids, your eyes get swollen. There's a lot of room beneath your eyes, and that's where a lot of water is retained.
- Fine Lines
Fine lines, like dark circles, are caused by dehydration, which occurs when your skin's pH is disrupted by a lack of sleep. After dragging yourself out of bed, apply a good moisturizer to your face and body. Before going back to bed, apply a specialized night lotion; the increased moisture will hide fine lines, and motion-activated essential oils will aid in getting some much-needed rest.
- Dull Skin
When you don't get enough sleep, your cortisol levels rise. This hormone produces inflammation, which causes the proteins that maintain your skin smooth and glowing to break down. Inflammation might also make you more prone to acne and allergic reactions.
Some Beauty Korea products that can reverse skin damage from lack of sleep
First, we’ll talk about cleansers. There are two of the most popular options are foam cleanser and gel cleanser. A gel cleanser for face wash is normally meant for deep cleansing and has a gel-like substance while when coupled with water, foaming cleansers come out of the tube as a cream or gel before bursting into a rich, foamy lather. Some users used Somebymi 30 Days Miracle Acne CLEAR Foam Cleanser that helps clean their pores thoroughly without giving irritation to their skin. For others, a gentle and hydrating foam cleanser like Neogen Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser is a natural ingredient and features 100% real fermented green tea. It freshly delivers soothing and skin refreshing benefits with every cleansing experience. One of the best recommended is COSRX Low-pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser, it is a super gentle cleanser that’s great for your morning wash, this low pH formula gel cleanser doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils and contains purifying botanical ingredients and mild acids to gently cleanse your skin to its most supple and clear texture.
Second, exfoliate. Why do we need to do this? Exfoliating skin means effectively unclogging your pores. Sweeping away dead and dry skin, as well as any other surface material that may have remained after cleansing, prevents it from entering your pores and creating tenacious blockages in the form of whiteheads and blackheads. Experts recommend an exfoliating routine with just one to two days per week. Our product Somebymi Super MATCHA Pore Clean Clay Mask helps thoroughly remove sebum and impurities with its great absorption ability. Another product that can promote visibly clear, smoother, and brighter skin is NEOGEN Bio-Peel, LEMON Gauze Peeling. Lastly, INNISFREE Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is a very effective mask to exfoliate keratin, dead skin cells. It also has a deep cleansing effect that cleanses the fine dust in the pores and improves acne.
Third, Korean toners can help you glow up, keep your skin clean and fresh, reduce the appearance of pores, and more. Here are some Beauty Korea products recommendations for you: Innisfree Green Tea Seed Skin a refreshing toner that delivers intense hydration and antioxidants from a blend of Jeju green tea extract and green tea seed oil to help soften skin and strengthen its natural moisture barrier. Next is, UNPA Lacto Cica Soothing Toner helps protect and maintain skin health after cleansing. And Somebymi Yuja Niacin Brightening Toner is a powerful brightening formula that improves the look of uneven, dull, and spotty skin. Using face toner daily will help you look more bright and refreshed.
Fourth, sometimes people think Serum, Essence, Ampoule, and Emulsion are similar but they aren’t the same and have different benefits for your skin. The texture of serums is regarded to be gooier than that of essences. Consider ampoules to be a more concentrated version of a serum, similar to a booster shot. They usually have a higher concentration of active substances and are only used for a short term. Some of our best products are COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence it is created from nutritious, low-stimulation filtered snail mucin and other great ingredients, to improve damaged skin, Missha Time Revolution Night Repair PROBIO Ampoule is a powerful night-time ampoule packed with 10 probiotics of different functions that work together to improve the natural strength of your skin. Moisturizes improves wrinkles, improves elasticity, and enhances skin texture, Sulhwasoo First Care Activating Serum is an anti-aging and essential regimen boosting serum that assures optimal skin care results, promoting balance and replenishing essential moisture and nutrients, and Etude House Soon Jung 10-Free Moist Emulsion is a low-irritant moisturizing, relaxing emulsion delivers moisture fast to the skin.
Fifth, Korean facial masks are one of the common routines in Korea and celebrities say that this is their secret for youthful skin. Like famous actors, Lee Min Ho, Lee Dong Wook, Park Min Young, and Kpop stars BTS Jhope, 2 pm Junho, and Redvelvet Joy are using sheet masks every day as part of their skincare routine. Beauty Korea offers EUNYUL Natural Moisture Sheet Mask that can immediately replenish dehydrated skin and keep the skin soft & moisture, 1 Day Sheet Mask Pack is an everyday solution for stressed and exhausted skin. Nourish your skin with vital elements every day by addressing different skin concerns and Mediheal Aura Alpha Masks EX makes tired and damp skin clean and clear generates moist water membrane to give shining and transparency to your skin.
Sixth, Eye creams moisturize the under-eye area and may even help to reduce the fine lines and wrinkles. Our product like Laneige Water Mask Eye Gel is an eye gel with double the amount of Green Mineral Water content to provide hydration and revitalize the skin around the eyes for a healthier look and Catalina Geo Timeless Enriched Capsule Intensive Eye Cream is an intensive eye cream that smoothly melts around dry eye areas, creating moist and elastic eye shapes.
Finally, a daily moisturizer is required to keep your skin's hydration intact and to protect it from environmental pollution but we should not use too much moisturizer that may your skin oily and cause a breakout. Moisturizer like Innisfree Green Tea Seed Cream is infused with a blend of Jeju green tea and green tea seed oil to leave skin feeling quenched with intense hydration. Another skincare product is JAYJUN Full of Soothing Cream it is a water cream that gives an ample amount of moisture and a cool feeling to dry skin with natural extracts.
Building a skincare routine is important but we should also consider our skin types and always look to its best ingredients for the best solutions to your skin problem. And also sleeping 8 hours every day is one of the major benefits for you to see the visible effects of these products.
