If you’ve been watching Mr. Queen as we have, you’ll know that this series leaves you laughing in tears and thinking of actress Shin Hye Sun’s perfect glass skin.
For the uninitiated, Mr. Queen is a highly-rated historical comedy-drama that was released in 2020. It depicts the story of a modern chef trapped inside the body of a queen from the Joseon era, causing chaos in the palace.
Whether you’re a man or a woman, or a man magically trapped in a woman’s body like Kim So-yong (played by Shin Hye Sun) is, you’ll want to know about these glow-inducing beauty tips!
She’s serious about cleansing
Even with a tight schedule as a busy actress, Shin Hye Sun always makes sure she double cleanses her face before moving on to her skincare routine.
Yes, dirt and gunk build up on the faces of our favourite Korean celebrities too! Having a strict and thorough cleansing routine will help rid of all the unwanted substances on the skin.
The benefit of double cleansing is that the first cleanser you use will break down any makeup, clean your skin, and remove dirt and excess oils accumulated from the day. Then, the second cleanser addresses your particular skin type or concern by having ingredients to hydrate, exfoliate, smoothen, or treat acne.
She advocates for everything natural, especially skincare
Shin Hye Sun believes that prevention is better than cure, which applies to her skincare regimen too.
While we all know that there are several high-end and effective skincare products, for the actress, there’s nothing more powerful than nature’s healing power.
She uses skin-loving products that don’t have impurities, parabens, formaldehyde, and toxic substances that can be harmful to the skin. This will help in avoiding and preventing ageing or breakouts.
The popular actress also uses organic eye masks for her eyes every night. So if you’ve wondered how Hye Sun keeps her eyes bright and gleaming, there you have it. Additionally, she also loves applying serums and night creams to soothe her skin after a long day at work.
She loves her sunscreen!
A scroll through her Instagram will show you that not only is Shin Hye Sun a lively, down-to-earth person, but she also loves her sunscreen (as she should).
Hye Sun’s holy grail sunscreen is from Cell Fusion C, a clinic-based and efficacy derma brand. Since 2001 and through lots of research, the brand has been introducing products with safe ingredients and formulas that are great even for sensitive skin.
The sunscreens that Hye Sun uses are the Toning Sunscreen 100 SPF50+/PA+++ and the best-selling Laser Sunscreen 100 SPF50+/PA+++. The former sunscreen protects from UV rays, gives a visible radiance effect, and improves skin tone and texture. And the signature Laser Sunscreen 100 is dubbed to have “the perfect UV protection” with the improvement of skin condition.
Cell Fusion C Toning Sunscreen 100 and Laser Sunscreen 100 both retail for S$35.48 each on Shopee.
Some of Cell Fusion C’s products include their patented NEO CMS® ingredient which has an excellent effect on recovering damaged skin barriers. With over 220 certifications and award records, the brand is also recognised and celebrated by many skin experts and customers. We can definitely see why Hye Sun would recommend this K-beauty brand!
She sticks to a minimal makeup look
Let’s be real, if we had flawless porcelain-like skin like Shin Hye Sun, we’d go bare-faced or use very little makeup products every day. Plus, the “no makeup” makeup look has been trending for years now and the fact that it’s still going strong is an indicator that it’s well-loved and here to stay.
With all the TLC she puts into skin maintenance, the star uses makeup to enhance her natural beauty instead of overwhelming her skin with beauty products which could result in breakouts and clogged pores.
She’s mindful of what goes into her body
Sometimes, despite using suitable beauty products and taking care of your skin accurately, your skin’s health may still not be in its optimal state. That’s where holistic cleansing comes into play, where what you eat matters and shows on your skin!
Besides putting a lot of effort into her skincare, Hye Sun does the same for her diet. She’s said to snack on fruits, which are a rich source of antioxidants and a range of vitamins. It’s basically one of the best things you can eat to get healthy, glowing skin.
The youthful star, both in appearance and character, also drinks a lot of collagen-infused water. These are extremely beneficial in putting ageing at bay by assisting in cell regeneration, preventing premature wrinkling and skin sagging, and giving hydrated, fresher-looking skin.
