Korean Beauty Expiry Dates

It starts off as a slight nagging in the back of your mind: how long have I really been using this product for? Does it feel weird on my skin or smell different? Then it evolves into mild paranoia and anxiety as you turn to check for the expiry date. We’re all familiar with the moment of panic when we brave through and glimpse at the worrisome number at the bottom of the bottle. How can the date on this product be from 6 months ago when I just bought it last month??

As much as we’d like our products to live as long as our never-ending conquest for eternal youth, the reality is, unfortunately, a little harsher and products will go bad after a period of time. Expiry dates can be a finicky thing to deal with, especially when the Western and Asian beauty products have different ways of labeling them. The last thing you want is to put on a product that’ll harm your delicate skin, cause unnecessary irritations or worse, cause a reaction that’ll leave behind permanent scarring. Here’s the beauty breakdown on Korean beauty product dates to save your face (and potentially your purse too!) the hassle.

While lack of sleep is the more common thought for this (nights out, anyone?), panda eyes can be attributed to more than just that. Some of these reasons include allergies, heredity, stress from overworking, excessive exposure to the sun and even diet related reasons like too much salt in your food.
