These 12 Female K-Pop Stars Have The Most Glowing Skin


While a lot of us are indeed beauty fans, getting into the nitty gritty of a skincare routine can seem tedious, with the sheer amount of products available out there in the market today. That's why we decided to help you shop, even virtually, to help you decide on the best picks for your skin type. We've zeroed in on four of the most common skin types out there: Oily & Acne-Prone, Dry, Sensitive, and Normal. Scroll through the galleries below to find out what you should be stocking up on, plus some things to keep in mind! 



Oily/Acne-Prone Skin

Sad to say, oily and acne-prone skin is the most common skin type out there, as evidenced by the questions we got during the event. People with oily skin usually don't just suffer shine, but also skin congestion due to trapped oil, dirt, and grime as we go on with our daily lives. If not managed well, the oil, dirt and grime gets inflamed, leading to acne. Ahead, Joanna recommended some products that make up an oily skin-friendly routine, to help cleanse, tone, and treat this skin type. All products available on beautymnl.com


Dry Skin

Ever get that dry, stretched skin feeling after cleansing? Chances are, your skin is dried out, and if it goes on without being given the hydration it needs, you could be making your skin more prone to premature skin aging. What your skin needs are products that infuse your skin with the much-needed hydration it needs to keep a balanced moisture level, to promote plump, youthful skin.

Sensitive Skin

For those who aren't sure if they have sensitive skin, some of the key indicators are frequent inflammation, redness, irritation, and yes, even acne. This skin type often reacts immediately to sun exposure, stress, harsh chemicals, and even fragrances, so it may be tricky to find products that work for you. Luckily, Joanna was able to give BeautyMNL's top picks for sensitive skin, to help calm it down, and promote its health. All products available at beautymnl.com


Normal Skin

Often dubbed as people who are truly #blessed, people with normal skin rarely experience any of the skin issues mentioned above. They have balanced moisture levels, don't suffer from acne (truly blessed), and have very few, if not zero blemishes or fine lines. While this skin type doesn't have to make much of an effort to look youthful and glowing, the key is to keep it that way through maintenance and good skin practices, to avoid any issues that may arise in the future.


Treating yourself to a regimen isn't just good for your skin, but it also helps with unwinding and practicing self-care—an important factor in facing these stressful, uncertain times.
