With stunning visuals and amazing dance moves k-pop idols have captured the hearts of many fans worldwide. Aside from that, one question we ask is how do they all have such perfect skin? K-pop idols have to make sure their skin looks its best for stage performances and tv appearances. NCT 127 is a popular idol group that is well known all over the world. They have been getting lots of global attention and lucky for us they also shared what they do to take care of their skin. Let’s take a look…
As leader and face of the group it’s no surprise that Taeyong takes good care of his skin. He uses high quality products yet keeps his routine simple. After cleansing he starts by using SK-II Facial Treatment Essence on a cotton pad and gently swipes it across his face to refine his skin texture. Then he follows up with SK-II R.N.A. Power Essence along with the SK-II R.N.A. Power Cream. He applies the products all over his face and then gently taps it in to absorb. Taeyong seems to like products from SK-II but for those who prefer keeping your skin care routine on a budget I recommend trying the Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence. This can be used in place of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence as the products have a similar function. (If you’re interested in trying it)
Aside from having heavenly vocals and a killer smile Jaehyun is always being envied for his perfect glass skin. Surprisingly, he has a very simple 2-step skin care routine to maintain his signature glow. After cleansing he swipes Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Toner over his face with a cotton pad. Then he moisturizes using Corthe Moisture-RX Recharging cream. He emphasizes that it’s important to use enough moisture cream because that’s the only skin product he uses. He applies a generous amount and taps it in to absorb. Jaehyun also shared one of his skin care tips by showing that he keeps all of his skin care products in a refrigerator. This can be beneficial as it adds a cooling effect for your skin which helps retain moisture and control oil production.
When I think of Johnny I always think of Chicago and coffee, but I also think of his strong stage presence and stunning looks. I must say that amongst the others, Johnny seems to have the simplest skin care routine as he only uses one product – a moisturizing serum. There are a few key points to his skin care routine though. As soon as he comes out of the shower he thoroughly applies a moisturizing serum all over his face. He layers it multiple times and fully lets it absorb into his skin before adding another layer. It’s similar to the 7 skin method that was popular in Korea a while back which is when you apply a moisturizing toner 7 times to deeply hydrate the inner layers of your skin.
After Johnny is done applying the serum, he doesn’t follow up with any other creams or products. Simple as that. It’s recommended to always finish your skin care routine with a moisturizing cream, but as long as you find what works for your skin that’s all that matters. And this method sure seems to work for Johnny because he always looks good no matter what he does.
