I love this. It was a very calm Sunday night TV show right before busy Monday.
I always got excited whenever I was watching this show. The harmony of all the guests and the genuine kindness of Hyori and IU truly caught my heart. :-) We feel very compatible with them because the worries and thinking about the life they talk about on the show are not very different from ours. I think that is the point of success of this show.
It's saddening the show is over. I will miss everyone from the show every sunday night. Lol
Korean star's skincare. We’ve all heard about it, but the big ol’ ‘Q’ here is, what is it?
Okay so, to start off, if there’s one thing that the Korean stars are proud of, it must be their beautiful skin. They have such flawless skin and for a good reason! I say this because I know it’s no mean feat to maintain unblemished skin. The Korean stars dedicate a lot of time towards making it look that way. If you’ve ever seen Hallyu Stars (Celebrities in the Korean Entertainment Industry), you’d notice how gorgeous their skin looks! If only someone had the lowdown on Korean beauty that could help give you flawless skin too. Oh, wait! We do! Keep reading to find out the 11 Korean beauty secrets that every woman should know.
Korean Beauty Secrets
If your skincare regimen involves the usual three steps of Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing, it won’t take you far. Korean skincare follows a religious 11-step routine. I bet you thought CTM was enough. Well, sorry to break it to you, but in the harsh conditions that we live in, that just doesn’t seem to cut it. The amount of dust and pollutants in the air keep increasing exponentially, and so it is crucial that we give our skin the best.
Without further ado, let’s go through the 11 steps involved in a Korean skincare routine.
- Oil Cleanser
- Water-Based Cleanser
- Sheet Mask
- Eye Cream
While these tips sum up the crux of a Korean skin care, they alone are not enough to ensure that your skin remains healthy. Following are the two other factors that majorly weigh in on the health of your skin.
DietA cardinal rule of skin care states that you are what you eat, and Korean stars strongly follow this maxim. The Korean diet is rich in essential nutrients that help nurture the skin. One such famous dish is kimchi, which is actually a fermented cabbage that is loaded with vitamin C and beta-carotene that boost your skin’s health. Another common ingredient present in their diet is Makgeolli, a fermented rice wine that is abundant in minerals and amino acids. It helps brighten the skin and preserve its elasticity.
You do not have to follow a Korean diet to improve the health of your skin. All you need to do is ensure that your body is getting a sufficient supply of all essential nutrients it needs to be healthy.
ConsistencyConsistency is the key to any beauty regime, and the Korean stars swear by it. Taking care of your skin is crucial, no matter how busy you are. If you want a beautiful, flawless, and firm skin, then you cannot be lazy. Set up a beauty regime and follow it religiously. No one said the path to beautiful skin was paved to be easy.
MEDICAL SKIN TREATMENT
Going to the dermatologist or plastic surgeon is just a regular part of your daily beauty maintenance. They dare to spend lots of money on it!
From acne care treatment to anti-aging treatment, they regularly visit a dermatologist to maintain their perfect skin and make it shinier than others. Korean stars want to decrease hyper pigmentation and increase skin "translucency". Skin tightening and reducing acne scarring are close seconds, korean stars are downright nitpicky about it. “Korean stars here demand 100% absolutely flawless and pristine skin,”
- Popoular korean medical skin care treatments -
1. Botox & Filler injection (Korean products are very reasonable so you can easily get botox and filler injection with korean products with relatively low price.)
2. Acne laser treatment (PDT((Phtodynamic)) therapy - Not only does it clear up severe cases, even cystic cases of acne but it also makes the skin surface look so much more even, shrink the appearance of pores and help make the skin look much healthier.)
3. IPL/ Fraxel (Excel V) ( Pigmentation, scars removal laser treatment)
4. Ulthera therapy (Lifting, tightening and sharpening ultra sound therapy)
5. Medical Injections (hydrating injection, stem cell injection, whitening injection, collagen injection, placenta injection, etc,.)
Due to the constant exposure to their entertainment industry (K-dramas), We’ve been fortunate enough to find out about this wonder of a routine, and I personally vouch for it. I can say from personal experience that the 10-step Korean skincare routine was a total game changer for me. My skin is so much cleaner and brighter than it was! If that’s not enough proof of its success, you have evidence from seeing how flawless Koreans look; and I don’t just mean the women! South Korea is probably the only country in the world to have men who are super into skincare, and if you ask me, everyone else should take notes! I mean, who doesn’t want great skin?
