As we all may already know, Squid Game has been one of the recommended shows to watch on Netflix for its dark take on the view of our modern-day society. It has been topping off Netflix’s global charts as Korea’s first drama to rank #1. Even in Singapore, Brown Butter Cafe has recreated one of the “deadly” games for customers to try (Rest assured, there are sweet prizes to be won with no actual deaths).
As much as I would like to dive right into the major plot twists from Squid Game (no spoilers ahead), instead, I would like to commemorate the actors and actresses that have portrayed their characters so well that made us really love or hate them, particularly – Jung Ho-Yeon, whom we cannot deny is currently everyone’s girl crush! Well-known for her character, Sae-Byeok, she has won the hearts of millions on Instagram – a whooping 19.5 million, as of 13th October.
Now how did this eye-candy maintain her beauty? Here are some beauty tips as told by Ho Yeon Jung!
1) Importance in taking good care of your skin
Fun fact – This is the biggest beauty lesson which she had learnt from her mother! From this advice, she diligently removes her make-up while applying 3 essential skincare items: toner, essence and moisturiser.
Here are our recommended picks for these items:
Aloe Cucumber Rebalancing Facial Toner: Packed with anti-aging antioxidants, this soothing toner is light and refreshing and it is suitable for sensitive skin for its pH balancing properties.
Royal Jelly Essence: Formulated with royal jelly extracts, together with essential vitamins and minerals, this ultra-light essence instantly penetrates the skin to provide long-lasting hydration, leaving complexion calm and radiant.
Luminizing II Replenishing & Moisturizing Cream: Suitable for dry or sensitive skin, this non-comedogenic formula boosts the skin’s immune system while providing deep hydration. This, in turn, improves skin’s health.
2) Maintaining your skin condition
To keep your skin in tip-top condition, Ho-Yeon is a firm believer in two things:
- Staying hydrated by drinking two litres of water a day
- Applying sunscreen to prevent UV damage to your skin. Check out UMBRELLA UV-Protection & Light-Diffusing Cream which contains a mega-dose of SPF 70 and is 100% chemical-free, making it suitable for sensitive skin!
3) Sheet masks are a must-have!
Yeon Jung’s love for sheet masks comes from the fact that it helps to soothe her sensitive skin.
Meet Pearl Eclát Masque! With its two key ingredients, pearl power and hyaluronic acid, it provides powerful skin-refining benefits while brightening and moisturising the complexion. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking more youthful and revitalised!
Bonus – To recreate her signature two-tone lips look, follow these simple steps:
- Use a moisturising oil lip balm to lock the water content on your lips
- Apply a brown lipstick over the lips
- Use red lipstick over the middle part of the lips to create that perfect Korean pout!
