Not sure what we’re more jealous of – the fact that her skin is so frustratingly flawless, or the fact that she’s acting alongside Song Joong Ki. Probably both.
Famous for having flawless, porcelain skin , Song Hye Kyo has always been the envy of many women. Adding on to the fact, she is starring in a Korean drama, Descendants of the Sun, alongside everyone’s favourite Korean oppa, Song Jonng Ki. She is also the face of Korean cosmetic brand – Laneige.
While watching this K-drama phenomena, most viewers (including myself) just can’t help but admiring her skin (and his – his skin is just as good as hers).
So what are her beauty secrets? I dug up some of her old interviews regarding skin care and here’s what I found.
1. Make pumpkin your BFF
Firstly, she stays away from food that are high in dairy content, sugar and caffeine. Some of the food that she avoids include chocolate, soft drinks, and junk food such as potato chips. Instead, her diet consists of fruits, vegetables and fish.
One of her favourite dishes is pumpkin. Pumpkin contains fruit enzymes and anti oxidants which help to smooth and soften your skin.
2. Home-made masks
She mixes egg white and honey every week to keep her skin looking bright and firm. Apply the mask on your face for 10 minutes and then rinse it off. It gives your skin a healthy glow and helps to tighten your pores, thus reducing the accumulation of dirt.
If you’re not a fan of DIY masks, I recommend Sloane Inc Water Infusion Mask to keep your skin hydrated and also to nourish your skin’s natural emollient system, leaving you with luxuriously luminous skin in 20 minutes or less.
3. Hydrate yo’self
The Korean goddess drinks two glasses of warm water on an empty stomach per day to kickstart her metabolism and also to prevent her skin from breaking out.
4. Facials that suit your skin type
In a recent interview, Song Hye Gyo mentioned that she often goes to the dermatologist to receive treatment when she has the time. Go for facials that would suit your skin condition or consult a skin doctor that would be able to access your skin type and recommend a suitable treatment for you.
5. Anti-aging products
Song Hye Gyo mentions that it you are never too young to start using anti-aging products. It’s always better to prevent than to cure.
This product is packed with hydrating ingredients that help to firm skin and improve the skin’s overall fragrance. Collagen is key to make your skin look young and plumb, so with this anti-aging formula, your skin will be provided with lifting and firming benefits.
Lastly, let’s all take a moment to appreciate this fine specimen with gorgeous skin. And face.
And for staying until now, here’s another Song Joong Ki appreciation gif. You’re welcome.
