Kim Yoo-jung might be in her mid-20s now, but she was only four years old when she first graced our television screens.

You might know her from shows like My Demon and Chicken Nugget, or her early works as a child actress like Dong Yi and Moon Embracing the Sun.

With that supple and radiant skin of hers, you might forget that she’s no longer the child we used to watch.

If you want bouncy skin like hers to look younger than your age, read on for all her beauty tips and tricks!

Hydrate, Hydrate, and Hydrate!

If there’s one thing Yoo-jung never fails to mention when asked about the secret behind her glowing skin, it’s the importance of hydration.

Every time she’s asked to divulge her beauty routine, she would fervently stress the importance of good skincare products, especially ones that keep your skin hydrated and moisturised. (We expect no less from the long-time LANEIGE ambassador!)

As an actress who is always booked and busy, she’s no stranger to the stressors long-haul flights can have on our skin. She tackles this by bringing a face mist on flight with her to soothe her dry skin.

Not only is it important to hydrate your skin, Yoo-jung also emphasises the importance in keeping your body hydrated. Yes, this means drinking lots of water!

Always Remove Your Makeup Before Bed

Some of you might be guilty of going to bed with your makeup on. Not Yoo-jung, though. She always makes sure to remove her makeup, no matter how exhausted she is.

As an actress who spends most of her time in front of the camera, she always has layers of makeup on. According to her, even naturally good skin can dry out after long hours with makeup on.

To protect and maintain the condition of her skin, the first thing she does when she gets home is to thoroughly wash her face to remove all makeup and impurities.

If she can do that after long hours of filming, there’s no excuse for you not to!

Importance of Good Sleep

In a vlog she did for LANEIGE, she shared that she went to bed at 8pm the night before and followed up by saying, “Beauty sleep is the best beauty secret.”

She also mentioned the golden hour for sleep, and recommends going to bed between 10 to 11 pm every night.

According to Yoo-jung, our skin loses its pH balance while we’re sleeping. To keep her skin moisturised and supple overnight, she uses a sleeping mask every night before she goes to bed.

Start Taking Care of Your Skin From Young

As beautiful and radiant Yoo-jung’s skin is, she did start out in the industry at a very young age. It’s only natural for her to learn from her experienced seniors who have been in the industry for a longer time.

This final tip is one she had gotten from veteran actress, Kim Hee-sun (right), who played her mother in Angry Mom.

Unlike the usual advice she gets about how important it is to take care of the skin on her face, Hee-sun advised her to start taking care of her hands and neck, claiming that it is even more important than the face.

This is because there are many existing aesthetic procedures for the face, which can help in reversing the effects of ageing on the skin. The same can’t be said for the skin on your neck and hands, which is why it’s important to start taking care of it while you are young.

Most people are diligent about applying skincare to their faces but tend to neglect their necks and hands. Yoo-jung was no different; it was only after Hee-sun’s advice that she started applying skincare to her neck.

As the saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure!”
