If you've ever been envious of Sandara Park and those other K-pop stars because of their dewy skin, you have to to know that it doesn't take a lot of work to achieve. These 4 steps will guarantee your next selca will be major key even with no filter.

  1. Double cleanse
    Double cleansing is the key to having smooth and clear skin. Start by using an oil-based cleanser to remove any makeup residue then rinsing with water. 

    Try: Clean it Zero, P875, Banila Co.
    Gently massage this over your dry face in circular motions to remove any traces of makeup then rinse with water.

    Follow up with a gentle foaming cleanser and remember to dab gently (do not tug!) with a clean towel.

    Try: Every Month Cleansing Foam in Tea Tree, P198, Etude House.
    This cleanser that has tea tree which prevents oily skin.

  1. Prep
    Use a toner to infuse moisture and not strip your face of natural oils.

    Try: Wonder Pore Freshener, P440, Etude House.
    This toner can also double up as a face mist. Just pour some into a spray bottle so you can freshen up in school. 
  1. Moisturize
    Don't forget to moisturize because having plump, healthy skin is the key to the Korean beauty routine.

    Try: Fresh Green Tea Cream, P440, Nature Republic
    This cream strengthens the skin's moisture retention, and also calms skin's redness. 
  2. Protect
    Don't forget the SPF especially if you are going to be outdoors a lot.

The Candy Girl's Guide to Korean Skincare

If your skincare routine is already on fleek, why don't you try these extra steps?

  1. Exfoliate
    Once a week, remove dead skin cells gently (micro beads are a no-no!) so that your skin will glow even more.

    Try: Honey Black Sugar Scrub, P595, The Face Shop.
    This sugar scrub has finer grain so it's not as harsh as other scrubs. 
  1. Face Masks
    Think of this as a weekly treat or pick-me-up. You can also keep it in the fridge for an hour before using, and the cooling effect instantly refreshes you.

    Try: Real Nature Mask Sheet in Acai Berry, P65, The Face Shop.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
