We can’t seem to get enough of what beauty products Koreans are using these days because let’s face it, they all seem to have amazing skin. And when we saw the dewy-fresh face of model-turned-actress Stephanie Lee, we just had to ask “what are you using?”
You’ll probably recognise Stephanie from K-dramas such as Yong Pal or Seonam Girls High School Investigators. But what you might not know is that the 21-year-old Boston-born beauty has walked the runways of Chanel, Tom Ford and Stella McCartney as a model. To add to her growing resume, she’s now the face of beauty brand Neutrogena’s Deep Clean range.
Here, she shares her beauty tips and tricks for healthy skin.
Every morning I: Drink two cups of hot water – it warms my body and wakes me up all relaxed.
Before bed I: Take a shower to wash off everything that has been on my skin the entire day; especially my face that has been in contact with sunlight and dust.
Beauty trick: Avoid direct contact with air-conditioning.
To keep skin healthy: Drink lots of water!!! This is VERY important.
My morning skincare routine: I wash my face with just water before applying skincare and the Neutrogena lip balm and sunscreen. I try to stay away from makeup as much as possible.
My night time skincare routine: At night, I use the Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oil-to-Foam (a single product that double-cleanses skin) for cleansing, even if I’m not wearing makeup. I don’t like to use too many cleansing products as they can irritate my skin. And I have dry skin with an oily T-zone, so it’s important to moisturise and cleanse skin well. After cleansing, I apply my skincare and the Neutrogena lip balm.
My hair care routine: The most important thing for my hair care is the scent and my hair always needs to be clean and fresh. I use the Aveeno Nourish+Moisturise Shampoo & Condition Leave-In Treatment. Rather than using a conditioner, I use the hair treatment. It’s not good to use anything that’s too rich for your hair, but there should always be enough moisture.
Favourite workout: Taekwondo.
Favourite place to get a beauty treatment: I go to the dermatologist once every two weeks and also enjoy a regular facial massage.
Favourite fragrance: I change my perfume on a daily basis. My all-time favourite is one from Frederic Malle.
