Get the latest know-hows on how to get that bright and radiant skin like SISTAR’s SoYou!
1. Treat Your Skin to an Oil Cream Massage
To get radiant skin, you have to start from the foundation. SoYou says that cleansing is critical in order to get healthy, radiant skin. After washing her face, she takes extra care by massaging her face with About Me’s Massage Oil Cream. She applies a healthy amount on her skin and massages it in an upward motion around her jawline and circular around her eyes. For her particular cream, she massages it for about 1-2 minutes until the cream feels tough. Then she lets it settle for 10 seconds and massages her face again when the cream turns mostly oily. Afterwards, all you have to do is wipe off the cream with a cleansing towelette!
SoYou’s choice of oil cream massage comes from About Me’s line. If you’re looking for a substitute, we recommend IOPE’s Pore Clinic Deep Clean Oil. The oil gets deep down into your pores to cleanse it of all the excess dirt and bacteria. The Saem’s Firming Massage Cream is a good substitute for those who are on a budget. The massage cream firms your skin while leaving in the natural nutrients your skin needs to stay healthy and glowing.
2. Get Rid of that Scratchy Skin
SoYou uses the massage cream on the daily, but as an extra step, she exfoliates her skin using About Me’s Peeling pad. About once or twice a week, before she would massage her face, she gently scrubs away the scratchy surface of her skin. The exfoliating comes from the mesh side of the pad, and you finish off by wiping off the excess with the embossing side.
Aritaum just recently introduced their own line of peeling pads. For those with not-so-sensitive skin, who want a deeper scrub, we recommend Aritaum’s pads that feature dotted textures than mesh. The Saem has a Pore Clean Peel Cotton Swab Kit, which is essentially the same as the peeling pads, just in cotton swab form.
3. Radiant Skin Starts From Your Eyes
SoYou lives by the rule that if you want to look radiant, your eyes have to shine just as bright. If you have dark circles and wrinkles around your eyes, you can’t help but look dull and sickly. That’s why SoYou takes good care to avoid dark circles and wrinkles by applying About Me’s Illuminating Eye Cream. It nourishes and tightens while brightening the area of your eye, giving you a naturally radiant look! But make sure that you apply eye creams in soft, slow motions. The skin around the eye is sensitive, and rough motions can cause the opposite effect!
Laneige’s White Plus Renew Eye Cream is a staple among the eye cream lines. Laneige’s line is best known for their whitening effects while lifting your eyes. The Saem has a special formula called Cell Renew Bio, which has natural ingredients to straighten out your lines.
4. Protect Your Skin With a Layer of Brightness
Lastly, SoYou finishes off her radiant skin care routine by protecting her skin with About Me’s Tone Up Finish Cream. The cream instantly brightens up your skin, giving it a photoshop effect. Along with the instant brightening, the cream plants nutrients into your pores, while protecting it from the harsh sun. SoYou’s face gets a whole tone lighter with all of the steps combined!
Mamonde’s Pure White Ultra Active Cream is a great substitute. As a firming & whitening cream, it creates a whitening barrier to protect your skin from the dullness and loss of resilience that accelerates with time. The Saem’s Urban Eco Harakeke Whitening Cream is a good substitute for those on a budget. With natural whitening ingredients from New Zealand’s Harakeke, it offers an instant brightening effect, while nourishing your skin for a healthy glow through moisturizing.
