Whereas interviewing Korean lady group EXID, three phrases, particularly, did not require a translator: toner, serum, and Vaseline.

The latter comes from Hyelin, who tells me about her minimalist routine whereas we’re backstage at day two of KCON NY. After asking her what number of steps her skin-care routine consists of, she mainly tells me zero. “Within the winter, it is dry, so I generally placed on Vaseline,” she says. “That is about it.” My understanding of Korean is slowly however certainly getting higher, however I look to the translator to verify I understood the glass-skinned singer accurately. She actually solely makes use of Vaseline on her pores and skin? Sure, it is as plain and easy as that. “She’s simply born with completely nice pores and skin,” Jeonghwa tells me. I want I might relate.

Jeonghwa’s skin-care routine makes rather more sense, although. As a result of the group travels a lot — earlier than flying to New York Metropolis, they had been in Seoul, and days later, they made their method to Tokyo — the 23-year-old switches up the variety of steps relying on the place she is or the what the situation of her pores and skin is in. “There are days once I’m solely going to do two steps, however generally, it goes as much as six or seven steps,” Jeonghwa explains. On these days when her routine turns into seven steps, she has probably the most in depth skin-care routine of the group.

Rapper LE’s routine falls someplace within the center. She retains her routine at about 5 steps. After she washes her face, LE places on a toner, a therapy, a serum, after which a moisturizer. For her morning routine, she makes use of a cream spiked with SPF.

Hani, alternatively, is nearly as low-key along with her pores and skin as Hyelin. Initially, her routine was about six steps. “However I’ve introduced it all the way down to about two steps,” she says. “Ever since then, my pores and skin has gotten so much higher.” She goes on to tell me that the development in Korea is not to stick to a strict 11-step routine, as People have come to know because the trademark of Okay-beauty. “Today, minimalism is standard, to remove the entire excesses,” she says, “so that is what I have been experimenting with.”

Surprisingly, EXID is the primary lady group I’ve ever interviewed for Attract about their magnificence routines — Korean, American, or in any other case. With magnificence’s total focus stereotypically centered on ladies, you’d assume lady teams would come first in my protection earlier than boy teams like BTS, NCT, and The Rose. Okay-pop lady teams hardly ever come to the U.S., although. Up to now 12 months, the closest I received to a lady group was assembly the members of co-ed group KARD, Somin and Jiwoo. Fortunately, KCON NY introduced 4 out of 5 members of EXID my approach.
