Many groups such as BTS, EXO, Red Velvet, and Black Pink have very tedious skin routines. So today we are going to be diving in on what Korean idols do to make their skin flawless.
BTS member Taehyung or “V” is outspoken about his beauty routine. Taehyung has stated that he has acne prone skin and the tips he shared with the internet has showed to work very well. BTS member ‘v’ uses a highly reputable brand of acne cream called Zeriod. The brand is known to keep your skin healthy and clear by adding oil.
Let’s go on into BTS member Jimin’s skin care tips. In many live streams you will often see Jimin wearing a sheet mask. The benefits of sheet masks can vary such as enriching your skin with vitamins, moisturizing and brightening. It is also known that Jimin likes to wash his face after every show. Sweat will clog your pores, so it’s a good idea to wash your face after an intense workout or live shows. As an international band, they frequently travel on planes. The higher the altitude, the dryer your skin will become. To keep your skin moist, BTS uses Cosrx hydrating pads. Wow! So convenient!
BLACKPINK is known for their adorable and beautiful looks. They also have a strict skin care regime. The BLACKPINK member Lisa has already started using collagen cream. It is common in Korea to start anti-aging cream at a young age. It’s all about being preventative. The benefits of collagen are that it will leave your skin glowing, healthy and youthful.
BLACKPINK member Rosé uses a very strict skincare routine. One of the things she uses is an oil and milk cleanser. Oil cleanser will help your skin balance oil production and has many anti-aging properties. Milk cleanser is also great for dry skin as it hydrates it. Plus, it is jam packed with antioxidants. She also uses many moisturizers which might be why her skin is glowing. In Korea it is very common to use sunblock as to prevent sun damage. The sun is thought to age the skin so Korean stars will use sunblock even in the winter. However, Rosé uses it lightly because too much will dull the skin.
Jisoo and Jennie go on similar skin care routines. Though it was stated by Jisoo that she likes chubby cheeks and will eat before she sleeps as to get chubby cheeks, which according to my mother, who has chubby cheeks, it is just genetic.
Jennie is also known for using a milk cleanser as shown on their show the BLACKPINK house.
