Skincare should be done devotionally in order to achieve the skin of your dreams. But in the 21st century, we generally don't find time to follow a particular regime every day. Imagine how stressful it is for our favourite singers and actors. Same goes with the currently booming stars and idols of K-pop yet they always pull off a flawless look.
Today, let's dive into a few easy skincare tips that have been shared by your favourite K-pop stars that you might want to incorporate into your own daily skincare routine.
Sleep is the key
Sleeping has become a very underrated activity in this century. But trust us, it is one of the most important activities that makes or breaks the potential for flawless skin. Getting enough sleep will allow your skin cells to regenerate properly. Korean women especially consider sleeping properly to be just as important as using our skincare products.
K-pop idols know that appropriate protection against the sun and UVB rays is vital for great skin health. Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVS and UVB rays with an SPF of 30 or higher is absolutely necessary, even when you're stepping out just for a moment. Also use a sheet mask, especially when your face is exposed too much to the sun, to help make up for the lost moisture.
Water, the all-rounder
Drink at least 8 cups of water in a day to keep your body hydrated which will ultimately keep your skin hydrated. Wash your face three times in a row. Double-cleanse your face with soft flowing water, and not spraying water directly to your face while showering. This method helps remove all the traces of makeup and dirt that have accumulated over the day and help you get one step closer to flawless skin.
The "Finger Rule"
You are going to live in your skin as long as you are alive. So it is important to be as gentle as possible with your skin. Try to apply your moisturizers or eye cream, with not more than 3 fingers (preferably one finger) as it places the least amount of pressure on the most important organ of your body - your skin.
There are a lot of other methods followed by different idols, such as using milk to cleanse your face, using a potato sheet mask, covering the face in dampened cotton pads.
Always remember to keep your skin moisturized all the time, eat and sleep healthy and make sure that you are gentle enough with your skin.
