Fans often see South Korean stars with dewy and minimal makeup, like Hallyu star Song Hye Kyo.
Her naturally flawless skin and youthful look shine through, which makes her one of the most sought-after stars for beauty products.
Interestingly, the Now, We Are Breaking Up star once revealed her secret to staying gorgeous even at 40.
Song Hye Kyo Skincare Routine
In 2021, AllKpop noted the actress’ secret to her youthful glow.
Interestingly, Song Hye Kyo’s skincare routine includes a classic beauty hack by using milk as a cleanser.
This beauty trick was also done by Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, who is famous for bathing herself with milk.
On the other hand, the wife of the ancient Roman emperor Nero, Poppaea, used this routine with added fermented yogurt for a moisturizing effect.
According to the media outlet, the Hallyu star uses heated milk and applies it to her face as the last stage of her cleansing routine.
Some say that the components found in milk help remove dead skin cells, making them look clean and clear.
Per Healthline.com, substances like vitamin A, D, E, and K, protein and lactic acid are present in milk, making it a hydrating and mild exfoliating agent.
As for the lactic acid, it contains alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), popularly used in skincare that acts as an anti-aging component and stimulates new cell growth.
However, the outlet noted that “lactic acid alone isn’t a good reason to use milk as a cleanser” and has no clinical evidence that supports this claim.
Despite this, some claim that Song Hye Kyo’s skincare routine is quite effective, given that the actress’ face exudes a youthful glow.
Song Hye Kyo on Prioritizing her Health
Apart from Song Hye Kyo’s skincare routine, the Descendants of the Sun star makes sure that she is fit and healthy.
In an interview with South China Morning Post, the 40-year-old Korean actress highlights the importance of working out.
“Besides taking care of my appearance, I also try to exercise more,” she said, revealing her favorite exercise routine. “I do a lot of yoga as well as aerobic exercises. When I have time, I like to run along the Han River. I prioritize exercise now; I feel like my skin condition improves when I exercise and sweat.
