Korean superstar Song Hye Kyo is known for her healthy, flawless skin that glows naturally. You may think that it is attributed to all the makeup she’s wearing. However, in a recent interview with the star herself, she reveals that makeup does very little in helping her achieve that natural, healthy glow. “Makeup can only enhance one’s natural beauty. You can’t only rely on makeup to make you beautiful,” said Song.
To attain that healthy glow, Song advises women to lead a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep. Freshly cooked food, vegetables and fruits should be consumed regularly, and each person should drink at least 1.5 litres of water daily. Fast food and soft drinks should be avoided as they are detrimental to health and could affect the skin. Song also practices stretching exercises right after dinner. Apart from that, she hits the gym at least four times a week to stay in shape.
When asked about her skincare regime, Song said using Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask twice a week helps her relax and get into a deep sleep effortlessly. Besides containing aroma-therapeutic properties to help relax the mind and body, the Water Sleeping Mask also hydrates, restores and repairs the skin. These key factors ensure that the skin stays youthful and rejuvenated. “I wake up in the morning with radiant skin and also feeling refreshed from a deep night’s sleep,” said Song.
Aside from the Water Sleeping Mask, Song also uses Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask every night to keep her lips smooth and supple. Formulated with Berry Mix Complex™ and Vitamin C, the Lip Sleeping Mask gently erases dry, flaky skin, and nourishes the lips overnight. “The lips are often neglected. We must remember that the lips and our mouth is part of the face. A beautiful face with dry and chapped lips is simply not attractive,” said Song.
Additionally, Song also suggests taking your daily dose of Vitamin C and E to get radiant and bright skin. This would help increase the skin’s ability to protect itself from UV damage. With that being said, applying sunscreen to protect the skin from harmful UV rays and premature ageing is also vital.
We can all look up to Song Hye Kyo for her perfect complexion, even with very light makeup on. Maybe this would help us change our skincare habits and strive for better, more radiant skin!
