There’s no doubt that we can learn a number of skincare tips and tricks from our favorite K-Pop idols. They are, after all, a wellspring of beauty secrets. What exactly do BTS’ Jungkook, V, Jimin, Jin, Suga, RM, and J-Hope have in common with BLACKPINK’s Rosé, Jisoo, Lisa, and Jennie?
Given their unavoidably packed schedules, getting a breather from a long day is needed, even if it’s simply to do an intricate skincare routine. These global celebrities may have their individual beauty endorsements, but they have product favorites that may just surprise you. There’s no need to spend a steep amount, some may even be found in your local pharmacy!
Kim Tae-hyung or V
On a previous blog post, we mentioned how V keeps properly hydrated during long-haul flights: lathering on pre-soaked cotton pads with an ample amount of toner. On top of that, he keeps moisturized with a holy grail from the drugstore, the Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy Creme. It’s recommended by many dermatologists for sensitive and eczema-prone skin. It’s budget-friendly, too!
It’s a sweet surprise that Jungkook’s go-to moisturizer is the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Deep Cream. This K-Beauty favorite is best for dehydrated skin and delivers instant nourishment. While you’re at it, try the full Moistfull Collagen line to pack on that moisture!
Need a quick relief for easily sensitized skin? Feeling a breakout about to happen? Take pointers from J-Hope and add the Mediheal Tea Tree Essential Blemish Control Sheet Mask to your routine. Infused with skin-loving ingredients like willow bark, tea tree, and centella asiatica, it visibly calms skin and reduces surface redness.
We know you’ve also wondered how BTS’ leader, RM, gets his luscious lips. The answer’s actually surprisingly simple—and can be found in your neighborhood pharmacy—the Vaseline Lip Therapy Stick in Rosy Lips. Pucker up!
The unnie of the global success, BLACKPINK, is just like you and me! She suffers from dry skin. To alleviate her easily dehydrated and dull skin, she packs on the moisture with a Japanese drugstore holy grail, the Hada Labo Arbudin Whitening Lotion, and even admits to masking twice a day with the Moonshot Muse Secret Mask.
For Jennie, doing a double cleanse is essential to remove all remnants of make-up, sunscreen, and dirt after a long day. For the first step, she can’t get enough of the cult favorite Shu Uemura Clarifying Cleansing Oil, specifically in the Anti/Oxi+ Pollutant & Dullness variant.
Before applying a full face of make-up, Rosé loves to use the Moonshot Moonbright Cream to brighten her skin. It doubles as a primer, too, and extends the weartime of make-up!
