7 Skincare Sins You Might Be Guilty Of

7 Skincare Sins You Might Be Guilty Of

Taking care of one’s skin is almost like second nature to women. Nowadays, with all the available skincare products in the market targeted to different age groups, every woman is investing in good skincare products to help keep a healthy and young-looking skin. However, what some of us don’t recognize; despite our efforts to keep our skin healthy, we still commit skincare sins that we may not even be aware of.

Busy schedule, traffic going to and fro, endless deadlines -- you name it! There are a lot of reasons we can defend ourselves from doing shortcuts and/or skipping some of our skincare routine steps. It’s understandable, and we have all been through it one way or the other. Still, when it comes to taking care of our skin, consistency is always the key. Additionally, there are already skincare products available to help you take care of your skin without consuming so much time.

In order to free yourself from these skincare sins, it is essential to identify what some of these sins are to mend our way to a more healthier skin. Here are 7 skincare sins you might be guilty of.


1. Not Drinking Enough Water 

Drinking an adequate amount of water is important for one’s overall health. It is also especially important in keeping the largest organ in your body healthy -- yup, it’s your skin. And for your skin to be noticeably healthy, drinking sufficient amount of water is necessary. If your skin is not getting the sufficient water it needs, the lack of hydration will present itself by making your skin dry, flaky and tight. This dryness of skin leads to its less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling. So to keep your skincare routine more effective, don’t forget to hydrate yourself and drink plenty of water everyday.


2. Sleeping with Makeup On

Admit it, we have all been guilty of sleeping with makeup on after an exhausting week or a few too many drinks after a night out. While it might not seem like a big of a deal provided it’s not happening regularly, sleeping in makeup can actually wreck some serious havoc on your skin -- and yes, even if it only happens once in a while. This causes wrinkles, breakouts, dry skin, chapped lips and even clogged eyelash follicles, eye infection and broken lashes. Never skip washing your face before going to bed and for a more effective cleansing, always do a double cleansing.

Double cleansing is a method that involves washing your face twice; first with an oil-based cleanser like Heimish All Clean Balm that breaks down oil-based debris without stripping off your skin’s natural oils, and second with a water-based cleanser like Pyunkang Yul Cleansing Foam that deeply cleanses your skin by clearing out dirt and oil leaving your face smooth and hydrated.

Heimish All Clean Balm

Heimish All Clean Balm first goes on as a solid balm, transforms into a silky oil cleanser when applied onto dry skin, and then turns to a milky consistency while you rinse. With its soft and lightweight texture, it effortlessly removes makeup and residue without stripping of skin's natural oils. It is paraben-free and hypoallergenic, formulated with citrus herb oils to brighten and nourish skin naturally. ✨ 〰️ REVIEW(S) ON HEIMISH ALL CLEAN BALM: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "HOLY GRAIL!! I really love how easily this product melts off my makeup (especially those water-resistant eyeliner and mascara). I do not have to harshly rub on my face. Another thing I like about it is it does not sting my eyes when I'm removing my eye makeup. Absolutely love this!" - Josephine P. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "VERY EFFECTIVE! I love this cleanser! After doing extensive research into first-step cleansers, I decided that the Heimish All-Clean Balm would be the perfect one for my skin type and needs (combination acne-prone), and I'm so glad I chose it! I used to experience eyelash fallout with my makeup remover wipes, but because this cleanser is so effective and I can be so gentle with it, I've been able to remove my makeup cleanly and safely. I also love this because it is non-stripping and it doesn't exacerbate my dry patches. Would recommend for anyone!" - Jeannie D. 〰️ Achieve that K-Beauty glow!

3. Popping Zits

Let’s all face it, it’s really tempting to pop a zit on your own face especially pimples showing up at the worst times. Despite your better judgment, you’re going to give in to this pesky temptation anyway then regret later. This is actually riskier according to dermatologists, as popping zits can force the debris and bacteria deeper into your skin. This may also introduce new kinds of bacteria that can cause the pimple to become more red, inflamed, swollen and infected that may even lead to permanent scarring.

There’s a better way around popping zits, though. Spot treatments like Pyunkang Yul Acne Spot Cream is an effective acne treatment that delivers rapid recovery of pores and skin stimulated by acne. Another great korean skincare products for preventing zits from getting worse and treating your breakouts with the use of a patch for each zit are the renowned COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch (for overnight use) and COSRX Clear Fit Master Patch (for daytime use).

Pyunkang Yul Acne Line’s best seller so far is this Acne Spot Cream! 💕 “Wow. My first time to use this last night and results are such that I felt compelled to post right away. Flattened and shrunk pimples, banished redness and sped up healing just overnight :) I love this more than the cosrx pimple patch. A little went a long way. I had one stubborn healed pimple that was hyperpigmented and still a little raised no matter what I did but I took a chance and placed this on it even if it was not an active spot. This just flattened and lightened it overnight. I don't see that it claims to lighten hyperpigmentation in any of its descriptors but I will certainly not argue with success :) I did not feel any stinging on application. I got it on sale too! love love love!” 〰️ It’s currently 15% OFF together with all of Pyunkang Yul Acne line and everything else! What are you waiting for? Don’t miss out!

4. Not Applying Sunscreen

5. Exfoliating Too Much 

For any good skincare routine, cleansing is an all important process. You have double cleansing then you have exfoliating. Exfoliation delivers a tighter, firmer, and smoother overall look and feel of skin, and who doesn’t want that? But with these same positive results, many fall into the trap of over-exfoliating. So how much is too much? If you’re already seeing any noticeable dehydration, skin tautness, redness and itchiness, patchy areas of dryness, and/or inflammatory acne and irritation -- yup, you are already overdoing it.

To avoid too much exfoliation, remember to use your exfoliating products once or twice a week only. For products such as COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid that dissolves impurities such as blackheads from your pores & COSRX AHA Whitehead Power Liquid that clears away dead skin cells, these are basically acid type exfoliants that should also only be used once or twice a week.

Formulated with 4% natural BHA, it helps dissolve impurities from your pores while clearing away dead skin cells. Willow Bark Extract and Niacinamide ingredients help brighten the skin with gentle exfoliation. Sodium hyaluronate ingredient provides hydration. ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What our customers are saying: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌 “Lesser blackheads! I have been battling with a major blackhead problem for quite a while and I have tried everything from different brand of nose strips to the comedone remover. This does not make my face sting and it does not cause any irritation. It is very gentle on the face and having used it for a week, I have seen my blackheads shrink and become smaller.” - Laura ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📌” Best Purchase to Date! This miracle solution cleared my face and really did lessen my blackheads significantly! If you don't have this now, you're missing out.” - Micki ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cosrx #cosrxph #cosrxblackheadpowerliquid

6. Not Getting Enough Sleep

Pulling an all nighter almost regularly? Aside from this issue being generally bad for your overall health, it also affects your skin. Your skin becomes imbalanced, causing dehydrated complexion, redness and breakouts, and eventually developing dark circles.

For those times lack of enough sleep is inevitable, avoid the development of dark undereye with the use of Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream and Heimish Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch. Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream helps combat dehydration, fine lines and dark circles -- all of which are signs of ageing while Heimish Bulgarian Rose Water Hydrogel Eye Patch are perfect for tired eyes by brightening dark circles under eyes and helping skin stay firm and bouncy.

Formulated with luxurious, effective ingredients such as milk vetch root, ginseng extract and shea butter, this richly hydrating Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream helps combat signs of ageing including dehydration, fine lines and dark circles. Instead of using a bottle or jar as its packaging, it's packed in 50 tightly-sealed 1ml-sachets to maintain potency and protect against oxidation, heat and contamination. Convenient and hygienic at the same time, these eye cream pouches from Pyunkang Yul are perfect for your daily skincare routine. Volume: 1 ml x 50 pcs 〰️ Review(s) on Pyunkang Yul Eye Cream: "Beautifully Rich! I really love a good eye cream - and I love the feeling of a rich cream. This eye cream is uniquely packaged as they come in 50 individual 1ml sachets. They recommend using a pack a day but I have found that each sachet gives me three very generous applications ( so 1.5 days) and I apply the cream over my entire eye lid right up to under my brow, under my eye and I use the left over on my nasolabial folds." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Handy, cute and powerful. I love the attention to detail Pyungkang Yul gives. This eye cream comes in small, samples size looking sachets, contained in a cute tea-tin, wrapped in a tiny shoebag. I really appreciate the packaging as I can just take a couple of the sachets with me when I travel. The sachets contain just enough for about a pair of eyes and a half, so a little extra, but I always try and work it in. The eye cream isn't as heavy as some others but definitely feels like it's soothing the eye area without feeling greasy or wet." 〰️ Pyunkang Yul now available in the Philippines through Go Bloom & Glow, the official distributor of Pyunkang Yul in the Philippines. 🛍 Shop here: 〰️ #pyunkangyul #pyunkangyulph #pyunkangyuleyecream #pyunkangyuleyecreamph #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreancosmetics #sheetmask #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #skincareroutine #skincarejunkie #asianskincare #innisfree #skincarediary #skincare #abcommunity #abcommunityph

7. Not Using a Moisturizer

Just as any other steps in a skincare routine, using a moisturizer is one of the most essential part of taking care of your skin. Together with drinking water, using a moisturizer hydrates your skin. Ditching the use of a moisturizer on your skin makes you more prone to develop deep wrinkles, dull and flaky complexion (especially if it is cold outside!), aggravate your acne as well as lose a layer of protection.

If you really want to maintain a healthy skin that can equate a Korean beauty, do not skip moisturizing. Check out these renowned products: Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream and Pyunkang Yul Nutrition Cream to incorporate with your skincare routine. Both are recommended for all skin types but Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream is better suited for oily skin while Pyunkang Yul Nutrition Cream is better suited for dry skin.
