Our 21 Days to Glow journey is taking our community through a virtual calendar of expert skincare and professional tutorials for glowing, dewy skin. We’re here to help you curate a tailored beauty ritual and reveal your most beautiful, glowing self.
We’ve taken three common skin concerns – the ones we’re asked about most by all of you – and presented them to super-facialist Teresa Tarmey. Keep reading to learn how to identify these skin concerns, and which of our must-have Korean skincare products can help you get chok-chok results.
This is such a common issue that we all experience during different seasons or stages of our lives. Dryness will look and feel flaky, rough and slightly red. Pay attention to common hot spots, including your nose, cheeks, forehead, and chin.
Caring for dry skin starts from within: follow a balanced diet and drink plenty of water. Then, supplement this lifestyle with a skincare routine full of skin-loving, nourishing and hydrating ingredients.
Some of Teresa’s favorites include hyaluronic acid and ceramides. Hyaluronic acid can help boost skin’s hydration levels – even holding up to 1000 times its weight in water! Ceramides are naturally made in the body, working to trap moisture. The moisture-boosting ability of both ingredients is enhanced in our most hydrating range: Aqualuronic.
Three hyaluronic acid molecule sizes combine to make Triple Hyaluronic Acid, while three ceramide types join to become an Aqua Ceramide Complex. Thanks to this power pairing, the range is clinically proven to increase hydration by at least 84% with just one use. The formulas also provide intense hydration and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Many of Teresa’s skincare tips revolve around application. For dry skin, you need to ensure you’re locking in all of that beautiful moisture you’re applying. K-beauty sheet masks act as ultra-hydrating skincare steps to make sure every last drop is soaked into your skin. Some AHC masks contain an entire ampoule formula, delivering hydrating ingredients to give an extra boost of moisture ideal for giving dry skin a healthy glow. If you’re looking for these drenched AHC masks, look out for packaging shaped like a bottle!
Natural Essential Mask - Aqua Nourishing
Teresa swears by the e range. Inspired by skin soothing treatments in Korean aesthetic clinics, each mask combines mild yet intensely hydrating essence (blending natural ingredients) with high quality pure cotton mask. This premium combination provides an optimal hydration and soothing effect, plus specialized benefits added to each mask. You have two options to choose from, Lifting or Brightening.
This one is straightforward to spot. Telltale signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, will start appearing around your eye area, with deeper lines along your forehead.
Different skin concerns need different specialist ingredients. For anti-aging skin care, look out for peptides, vitamins and hyaluronic acid again. These can help manage early signs of aging.
AHC has developed an eye cream combining all three ingredients. Essential Real Eye Cream for Face blends five peptides (providing nutrition to your skin for boosting resilience) and six vegetable proteins (to moisturize and firm the look and feel of your skin). These are processed through the unique AHC Microsome Technology that ensures each top-quality ingredient absorbs effectively into your skin. This formula delivers intensive nourishment like an eye cream but has been made to use on your whole face. You can even use it as a makeup primer for dewy and glowing skin. Plus, it’s ideal if you’re trying out K-beauty’s skipcare trend.
Essential Real Eye Cream for Face is a hero for a reason – The formula is proven to improve skin elasticity – and even skin tone – . Apply using massage techniques to help strengthen your facial muscles and give your face a glowing boost.
