K-Pop Idol Skincare Routine: EVERGLOW Aisha
Ever wonder how your favorite K-pop stars have absolutely flawless skin? Of course, they are probably going to professional clinics, dermatologists, and spas to get their skin in tip-top shape, but a solid skincare routine is essential for maintenance. With constantly busy schedules, most K-pop idols have a solid skincare routine so they can look their best when filming, performing, and making the bops we all love to hear.
In this segment, we will be taking a closer look at...DUN DUN...EVERGLOW Aisha’s nighttime skincare routine! Lead rapper and full-time baddie, Aisha shared her 9-step skincare routine for flawless looking skin, and I’ll be breaking down her steps with recommendations for each:
Step 1: Lip and Eye Remover
With long hours of performances, music videos, and public appearances, it’s a MUST for Aisha to remove all the makeup she’s been wearing throughout the day. She starts with a lip & eye remover, like the The Saem Healing Tea Garden Green Tea Lip & Eye Remover (don’t worry no lips or eyes were removed with this product). These are essentially makeup removers that breakdown the water-proof “point” makeup, which includes lipstick, mascara, and eyeliner.
Step 2: Cold Cream (oil-based cleanser)
Instead of going with a traditional cleansing oil, Aisha goes in with a cold cream as her oil-based cleanser. Cold creams are often used as moisturizers but certain ones can also be used to break down makeup on the face. They are similar to cleansing balms, like the cult-favorite Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm
Step 3: Water-based Cleanser
The last step of her triple cleansing method is a water-based cleanser. Considering the next steps in her routine, she would most likely appreciate a non-stripping cleanser that won’t dry out her skin, like the Round Lab Dokdo Cleanser. Having a non-drying cleanser in your routine will prevent stripping and weakening the skin barrier.
Step 4: Toner
Toner is no stranger to Aisha - like most Korean skincare routines, layering moisture is key to effective skincare routine. The I’m From Rice Toner is the perfect example of a toner that nourishes the skin with some good ole’ moisture and skin brightening benefits for a glowy complexion.
Step 5: Hydrating Ampoule
At this point, I think it’s clear that Aisha loves her hydrating products. What better way to add even more dewy moisture than with a hydrating ampoule, like the COSRX Hydrium Triple Hyaluronic Moisture Ampoule. A concentrated serum with 3 types of hyaluronic acid? Triple the hydration for that plump and dewy complexion.
Step 6: Lotion
Time for the occlusives! Aisha layers two different moisturizers to build on the layers of moisture from products she applied prior. The Etude House Soonjung Emulsion hits when it comes to lightweight yet nourishing lotions. It contains skin barrier repairing ingredients such as squalane, madecassoside and panthenol for all that soothing moisture.
Step 7: Moisturizer
After applying her first occlusive layer of lotion, Aisha goes in with a thicker cream to lock in all that benefits of her skincare products while adding a protective layer of hydration. The Klairs Fundamental Water Gel Cream is nourishing yet lightweight for optimal hydration while still leaving the skin soothed, comfortable, and supple.
Step 8: Facial Oil
Aisha tops off her moisturizer with rich oil which she says is the most nourishing step that helps lock in the moisturizer and create a barrier to prevent moisture loss. The Donginbi 1899 Signature Oil is a luxurious blend of ginseng - the secret to young and healthy skin. It creates a nutrient-rich layer for ageless skin that K-pop idols seem to all have.
Step 9: Lip Balm
To finish it all off...lip balm of course! No dry, cracked lips here especially when you’re on camera. Rapping, singing - Aisha’s lips can’t be looking chapped. Applying some lip balm, like the A’PIEU Honey Milk Lip Balm, before bed can prevent lips from looking dry the next morning and help lip products apply smoother.
Clearly, the life of a K-pop idol doesn’t stop after rehearsals. Keeping up with a hydrating skincare routine is essential for EVERGLOW’s Aisha to have her skin looking flawless and simply gorgeous. Let me know if your skincare routine looks like Aisha’s!
