Ever wondered what K-pop celebs do to have smooth skin and a dewy complexion? Members from boy group Shinee and girl group Red Velvet tell us.
Popular K-pop groups Shinee and Red Velvet were recently in Singapore for the opening of the Shilla Duty Free shop at Changi Airport’s Terminal 4.
As ambassadors of Shilla Beauty, Wendy and Joy from Red Velvet, and Key from Shinee shared their favourite beauty tips to score glowing skin.
Believe it or not, how you feel affects the appearance of your skin. A study was conducted by Dr Howard Murad from Murad skincare where 40 women read short positive affirmations such as “I am free to be myself” daily, for four weeks. At the end, the women had lower stress levels and higher levels of skin hydration. Hydration is an important factor to getting youthful-looking skin, as it makes the skin less prone to wrinkles, and also gives the skin a natural glow. So stay optimistic and those good vibes will be reflected on your skin.
Being in hot, humid weather all day causes your skin to be dull and prone to breakouts. Get into the habit of masking daily to calm your skin after long hours of exposure to pollutants. We like the Hera Hyaluronic Mask Set ($53.60 for six pieces) as it contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid that maximises collagen levels in your skin to keep it soft and supple. The mask is made from a fine fibre that covers every part of your face for maximum absorption of ingredients.
Available at the Shilla Beauty Duty Free Cosmetics Store in Terminal 4.
Use BB cream
BB cream is a multi-purpose product that acts as a base makeup with skin-enhancing properties. It contains anti-ageing antioxidants and moisturising ingredients to keep the skin hydrated. However, some BB creams can be thicker than regular foundation, which can clog pores. Go for the light ones with an oil-absorbing formula. Naturally cover up your blemishes with Kiehl’s Actively Correcting and Beautifying BB cream SPF 50/PA+++ ($52 for 40ml). It is a light-coverage cream that’s formulated with high levels of vitamin C. Perfect for smoothing out uneven skin tones and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and pores.
Available at Shilla Beauty Duty Free Stores in Terminals 1, 2, 3 departure transit lounges.
