Kim Yoo-jung is now in her mid-twenties, but she captured our hearts when she was just four years old.

You may recognise her from My Demon and Chicken Nugget, as well as her earlier roles as a child actress in Dong Yi and Moon Embracing the Sun.

With her youthful and glowing skin, it’s easy to overlook that she’s no longer the little girl we once saw on television.

For tips and tricks on achieving skin as supple and radiant as hers to look younger than your years, keep reading!

Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate!

Yoo-jung never fails to mention the significance of hydration when asked about how she achieved her radiant skin.

Whenever she shares her beauty routine, she always emphasises the value of using skincare products that effectively moisturise and hydrate the skin. (It’s no surprise, coming from LANEIGE’s long-time ambassador!)

Being a busy actress with a packed schedule, Yoo-jung understands the toll that long flights can take on our skin. To combat this, she always carries a face mist with her during flights to provide relief for her dry skin.

In addition to hydrating the skin, Yoo-jung also highlights the importance of keeping the body hydrated. So, don’t forget to drink plenty of water!

Always Remove Your Makeup Before Bed

As an actress who spends most of her time in front of the camera, she often has a lot of makeup on. Even when she is exhausted after a long day, she never fails to remove her makeup before bed.

She understands that even if you have naturally good skin, wearing makeup for long hours can still cause dryness of the skin. This is why first thing she does when she gets home is to wash her face thoroughly, removing all traces of makeup and impurities.

If she can do it after a long day of filming, there’s no reason why we can’t do the same!

Importance of Good Sleep

Yoo-jung shared in a LANEIGE vlog that she went to bed at 8 pm the previous night, adding on that “beauty sleep is the best beauty secret”.

She also highlighted the golden hour for sleep, suggesting a recommended bedtime between 10 to 11 pm.

According to her, our skin loses its pH balance while we are sleeping, so she keeps her skin hydrated and moist by applying a sleeping mask every night before bed.

Start Taking Care of Your Skin From Young

While Yoo-jung’s glowing skin keeps her looking youthful, she started her career at a very young age. It’s only natural for her to seek advice and guidance from her experienced seniors who have been in the industry for a longer time.

One valuable tip she received came from veteran actress Kim Hee-sun, who played her mother in Angry Mom. Unlike the usual advice about taking care of the skin on her face, Hee-sun advised Yoo-jung to also focus on her hands and neck.

There are many existing aesthetic procedures for the face, which can help combat the effects of aging on the skin. However, the same cannot be said for the skin on the neck and hands. This is why it’s crucial to start taking care of them from a young age.

While most people diligently apply skincare to their face, they often neglect their necks and hands. Yoo-jung was no exception to this. Thanks to Hee-sun’s advice, she started applying skincare to her neck and hands as well. This includes sunscreen as well!

As the saying goes, “prevention is better than cure!”
