It seems that water is the key to achieving youthful skin amongst Korean girl group members! Choi Sooyoung (26) of the sensational K-pop group Girls’ Generation, said that each member of the group drinks around 15 litres of water each day. When the skin is hydrated, it becomes more plump and elastic. A plump skin is less likely to get wrinkles, acne, breakouts, and blemishes. No wonder their skin look so bright and youthful.
Oily Food = Oily Skin
Not everyone has the same skin type, even celebrities. K-pop idol Baro (24), can relate to those who have oily skin. His secret to getting clear skin is by simply avoiding oily and greasy food. Excess oil from food leads to breakouts and acne, so it’s better to follow his tip to get acne free skin!

Snack on Fruits!
What do Ha Jiwon, Kim Heesun, and Jang Nara all have in common? They’re all Korean actresses in their late 30s. Plus, all three of them share the same secret to having youthful skin! Instead of filling their tummy with unhealthy snacks, they eat fruits such as apples, kiwis, and strawberries as snacks. Fruits containing Vitamin C are good for the immune system and can minimise the chances of getting damaged skin. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant and helps the production of collagen. Start snacking on fruits now to get healthy, youthful skin!
Besides fruits, vegetables are also something that Korean celebrities eat regularly to keep their skin healthy. Cabbage, in particular, is consumed by celebrities as it is known for its anti-aging and healing benefits. Actress Yoo Inna (34) and K-pop idol Sungyeol (25) consume cabbage regularly to maintain their clear skin. It is also good for treating acne, rashes, wounds, and other types of skin inflammations. Cabbage juice is also a good idea so you can have it while you’re on the go!

Start Your Morning With Warm Green Tea
Like K-pop idol Henry Lau (27) of Super Junior M, try drinking a cup of warm tea every morning. There’s a lot of options to choose from, but green tea is highly recommended. Besides giving you fresh breath in the morning, green tea is a powerful antioxidant and it protects your skin from sun damage. It also has anti-aging benefits thanks to the polyphenols present in it.
