K-POP Idols' Secret to Clear Skin Revealed?

After a long time of inactivity, I found an Allkpop article about a Davichi member revealing how her skin's complexion is so clear.

So the extremely short story goes like this:

Kang Min Kyung (Davichi member) was on this show, and the MC basically asked her how she takes care of her skin.

Kang Min Kyung of Davichi
Now, her reply actually surprised me. I guess I've never heard anyone who used her "technique" when washing their face. Min Kyung's reply was that she washes her face FIVE times before she sleeps. She says that she keeps washing her face until there's practically no dirt left and in total, it's around five for her.

When she says she washes her face five times, Min Kyung doesn't mean throughout the day. She means five times consecutively. Washing your face more than three times throughout the day can lead to very dry skin, or if you have a naturally oily skin type, more sebum will be produced. Even Youtube make-up guru Bubzbeauty said not to wash your face for more than three times because, as I said, more sebum will be produced. Starting to get sidetracked but to reduce sebum production, moisturise. You might think that since your skin's already oily but it's oily because there's not enough moisture. Maybe stick to water-based moisturisers so it's not as rich. 'Nivea' and 'Dove' have very rich moisturisers but 'Formula 10.0.6' has a very nice moisturiser (which I need to stock up on) that's meant for oily skin. The consistency of it is much more liquidly, whereas 'Dove', for example, is quite thick and creamy in consistency and texture.

ANYWAY. That's one secret out! If idols keep telling us their secrets maybe one day everyone would have clear skin :') I'll try to keep you guys up-to-date on the whole "clear skin" thing but I might try to put some advice out there as well for those of you who are still going through puberty like I am. So...yeah. If you have any questions, comment below and I'll try to get back to you ASAP :) Thanks for reading guys~
