In this article, we will introduce the "NG care" that leads to dullness. Let's take a look at what you've been doing without realizing it, and make your skin clearer and more beautiful!

The 10 most common skin cares

It's not surprising that many of the nasty habits that can lead to dullness are hidden in the things we do without thinking. Let's check them out and review them right away!

No. 1: Scrubbing your face too hard

Wash your face thoroughly! Do you find yourself washing your face multiple times a day, or scrubbing your skin too hard?

Washing your face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, is considered sufficient. Many people only wash their face with water in the morning, but it is recommended to use a cleanser both in the morning and at night.

When washing your face, do not rub your face with your hands to remove dirt and grime, but rather let the foam of the cleanser absorb the sebum and dirt.

To prevent friction, lather your face with plenty of cleanser. I recommend using a foaming net to create fluffy foam. Use a lathering net to create fluffy bubbles, then wrap your face in the lather and roll the foam over your skin to absorb dirt.

~Wash your face in the following order

  • chin and mouth area
  • nose
  • forehead
  • cheeks
  • around eyes
  • entire face to blend

No. 2: Rinse with hot water

The temperature at which you rinse your face can affect the dryness of your skin. Washing your face with cold or too hot water is a bad way to dry out your skin. It is best to use lukewarm water with a temperature of 33 to 35 degrees Celsius.

If the water is too cold, it closes the pores and does not remove dirt, and if it is too hot, it washes away the sebum that the skin needs. If the water is too hot, it will wash away the sebum that the skin needs.

When taking a bath, rinse off all at once in the shower.

When bathing, do you rinse your face all at once in the shower? Actually, this is also a bad idea.

The water pressure in the shower is too strong for rinsing your face. This can be hard on the skin and lead to sagging skin in the future. When bathing, be sure to rinse your face carefully with lukewarm water in both hands.

No.3: Wipe off the water with a towel

When wiping off the water from your face with a towel after washing, scrub the area around your eyes and nose to make sure all the details are wiped off. ...... This is not the way to wipe off your face.

After washing your face, your skin is in a vulnerable state and is very delicate. If you scrub your skin, the friction of the towel will damage your skin. Repeated friction with the towel can lead to skin problems such as acne and pimples as well as dullness.

~To protect your skin after washing your face

  • Use a towel with good absorbency so that you don't have to scrub your skin.
  • use a towel that is gentle to the touch and does not irritate the skin.
  • use a clean, freshly washed towel.
  • Place the towel on your skin and gently and carefully absorb the moisture.

No. 4: Overprotective care of the skin

In order to prevent skin problems from occurring, do you apply a series of cosmetics that are supposed to be good for your skin in addition to your basic skin care? If you are trying to keep your skin moisturized, blindly applying too much of this and that can degrade your skin's natural functions.

The skin has a natural ability to cope with heat, cold, dryness, and other environmental conditions, and naturally tries to keep itself clean. However, when we over-protect our skin, it is said that the skin's ability to cope with the environment is diminished and its natural power is lost.

By maintaining a proper balance of skin care, you can have healthy and supple skin. For this reason, it is important to know what kind of condition your skin is in and what kind of care it needs. There are many places where you can check your skin condition, such as the cosmetic department of a department store, so you can have your skin checked while shopping.

No. 5: Putting sheet masks on your face for a long time

There are many people who use sheet masks as a quick and easy special care for their skin. Sheet masks are a beauty moisturizing item that can trap and intensively moisturize your skin with a dense serum just by placing it on your face. However, the sheet masks that you use because you think they are good for your skin can turn out to be a bad care if you use them in the wrong way.

Sheet masks should be used on skin that has been cleansed and toned. The frequency of use is basically once or twice a week. If you use it more than that, you will be over-protecting your skin, as mentioned earlier.

In addition to the frequency of use, it is also important to keep the time you apply the sheet mask in mind. It is understandable that you want to get as much of the dense serum into your skin as possible, but longer use is not always better. If you exceed the usage time, the sheet may dry out and even absorb moisture from the skin, causing the skin to dry out.

The duration of use varies depending on the type of sheet mask, but 5 to 10 minutes is generally the frequency of use. Read the instructions carefully and follow the usage time.

No. 6: Strong patting

Lotion is a basic part of skin care, but do you tend to pat your skin with a lot of force? Strong patting can irritate your skin and cause dullness, so it's important to review the basic patting technique once again.

It is not wrong to apply lotion with your hands, but the lotion tends to be absorbed by your hands. Cotton is recommended because it allows you to apply the lotion evenly to the small areas that are prone to dryness.

~How to apply lotion using cotton

  • Hold the cotton ball horizontally between your middle and ring fingers so that the fibers run horizontally.
  • Dispense a small amount of lotion onto the cotton ball, about the size of a 500 yen coin.
  • Gently glide the lotion over your skin, following the flow of the cotton fibers.
  • Apply 2 to 3 times from the center of the face to the outside.
  • You can also add an "introductory toner".

Introductory toner is gaining attention on SNS. It is a pre-lotion that is used before the lotion to make it easier for the lotion to penetrate into the skin. If you are concerned about dullness or dryness of your skin, it is recommended to use an introduction lotion before toner.

No.7: Don't massage too hard.

Face massage is one of the best ways to reduce dullness. However, if you massage your unprotected skin with a lot of force, the friction may cause blemishes and pigmentation.

When massaging, be sure to apply oil to make it slippery so that your hands do not cause friction. Do not rub your skin too hard, but just rub your face with your oiled hands.

No.8: Sun protection only in summer

"Don't you think that sunscreen is just for summer? If you only wear sunscreen in the summer when the sun is strong, you are not taking care of your skin. As long as we are outdoors, we are exposed to UV rays all year round, although not as much as in summer. In order to prevent the increase of melanin pigmentation caused by UV exposure, which is one of the causes of dullness, we need to take sun protection all year round.

The amount of ultraviolet rays gradually starts to increase from April, and July to September is the time of the year when the amount of ultraviolet rays is the highest. Even in winter, when the sun is not so strong, UV rays are still pouring down, so it is essential to take precautions. In order to protect your skin, it is advisable to take measures against sunburn throughout the year.

During the season when the amount of ultraviolet rays is not high, it is best to choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 that is gentle to the skin and does not cause irritation. In addition to sunscreens, some make-up bases and foundations also contain UV protection, and can be used in combination with other products to enhance the sunscreen effect.

No. 9: Go to bed after midnight

Do you go to bed before midnight? If you are busy with work or just don't want to waste your free time, you may find that going to bed after midnight has become a daily routine. A good night's sleep is necessary to keep your skin healthy. It is said that a good night's sleep is the best remedy.

It is said that growth hormone, which is essential for maintaining healthy skin, is secreted in the largest amount during the day from 10pm to 2am. If you don't rest and sleep during this time of high growth hormone secretion, your autonomic nervous system can easily be disturbed, which can lead to skin problems.

In order to activate growth hormones and prevent skin regeneration activities, it is important to get at least six hours of sleep and go to bed by midnight. It is important for both your skin and your body to maintain a regular rhythm of life.

No. 10: Unbalanced diet

When you are busy, you tend to have a poor diet. If you eat unbalanced meals or eat out more often, you will lose your balance and be more prone to skin problems. If external treatments do not seem to have any effect on dull skin, it is time to take a fresh look at your diet.

People who eat out a lot tend to be lacking in vegetables. When you eat at home, it's a good idea to consider a menu that focuses on vegetables. Nabe (hot pot) is a great way to take in lots of vegetables and is perfect for this season. You can take in plenty of vegetables, and if you add meat or fish, you can also take in protein. Miso soup or vegetable soup with a lot of ingredients is also recommended.

Also, the busier you get, the more you tend to crave for sweets. However, if you consume too much sugar, the excess sugar in your body will combine with protein, causing a phenomenon called "glycation.

When glycation progresses, the skin loses its elasticity, sags, and becomes dull and translucent. For the sake of your skin, it is recommended that you avoid excessive sugar intake.
