Korean Dramas are the best stress-busters, especially after a long week working from home or at the office. Just don’t get too carried away with multiple episodes on Netflix in the wee hours of the morning—your skin might not be too happy about it! Whether you’re a new K-Drama convert or a longtime fan, it’s easy to get hooked with the amazing plots, endearing actors, and, of course, the beauty and fashion aspects of each show.
There’s no shortage of skincare tips from our highly recommended K-Dramas, too! Here are some tried and tested tips from shows to incorporate in your routine.
Your neck needs skincare, too!
You might be doing everything possible to take care of your skin—from following a multi-step routine to trying out all the beauty tools in the market. Here’s something you might not know: your neck needs skincare, too, since it easily shows signs of aging!
Yoon Se-ri from the Netflix hit “Crash Landing On You” may have been stranded in a remote North Korean village, but this didn’t stop the heiress from smuggling a few skincare products from South Korea to keep in her simple routine. The anti-ageing essence from Manyo, the Factory Bifida Ampoule, was highlighted in the show. She reminds everyone that skincare doesn’t end in your face, use it on your skin, too!
Why not try a facial device?
We can learn a thing or two from Yoon Se-ri! Once the wealthy business woman returns to her loft after being stuck in North Korea for a while, she makes a beeline for her facial massager, the VANAV UP6 Total Skincare Device. Upgrade your routine with beauty tools, in this case, the handheld beauty tool for facial therapy and 3D vibrational massages. Treat your face to a spa-like massage after applying moisturizer on your skin at night.
Goo Seo-ryung and Lee Gon from “The King: Eternal Monarch” were also spotted with luxe LED Masks during their downtime. The metallic mask opts for light-based therapy to help promote collagen, boost skin health, and treat blemishes! It makes for a pretty cool Instagram post, too!
Pat in your skincare products!
Secretary Kim of “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?” has to deal with stress brought by a demanding boss, which gives her more reason to keep vigilant with her skincare routine. A pro-tip comes from an age-old Korean technique for getting the most out of your skincare products—by simply patting them in! This helps it penetrate deeper into skin and even helps boost the blood flow to activate the cells and promote collagen.
Next time you watch a new K-Drama, be on the lookout for skincare tips you can try out on your own. Happy watching!
