Korean actress #ParkShinHye shares skincare tips and what she loves about Singapore
BY KRISTEN JULIET SOH
Korean actress Park Shin Hye, who is probably best known for her recent role in popular K-drama Doctors, was in Singapore on Friday. The brand ambassador of Mamonde met the media at a press conference and shared her skincare tips, as well as what she loved most about Singapore.
Here are a few things we learnt about her
She is conscientious with her skincare routine
Her long working hours and frequent travels aren’t obstacles to achieving radiant skin. She shared that when she’s filming, she usually doesn’t get a lot of sleep. “Due to the lack of sleep, my skin loses moisture sometimes,” Park Shin Hye shared.
To make sure that her skin still look vibrant and healthy, she uses a facial mask every day to moisturise her skin. This is dedication!
She has her skincare woes too!
Park Shin Hye may look flawless all the time, but she knows very well what her skincare concerns are.
“I get tanned very easily, especially during summer,” she said, “so during those times I really focus on brightening and whitening to keep my skin glowing.”
She also shared that when her skin tans, it tends to get dry too. So she will also moisturise her skin during summer.
Her favourite makeup item is lip tint
We might have expected a Korean celebrity to have an elaborate makeup routine, but there’s only one product that Park Shin Hye can’t live without: the entire range of Mamonde Creamy Tint Lip Balm.
“I don’t put on a lot of makeup when I’m not working or in a shoot, so I focus on my lips. I make sure I have bright, glowing lips, which I think help brighten my features,” she said.
She customises her skincare routine according to her needs
Cleanse, tone, and moisturise may be the basic steps, but Park Shin Hye goes beyond that. She said that the two products she always use are the Mamonde Calendula Essence and Toner. She said that these two products always go hand in hand for her, because using just the toner makes her skin feel dry, so she makes sure she uses an essence too to keep her skin moisturised.
These are her top three products from Mamonde
Before she heads out of her house, Park Shin Hye will never forget to apply the Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Cream (she called it the “Hibiscus cream” because this product is formulated with hibiscus) to keep her skin hydrated, the Mamonde Cover Powder Cushion as her basic foundation, and then finish off with her favourite Mamonde Creamy Tint Lip Balm to draw some focus to her lips.
What she loves most about Singapore? Chilli crabs!
Besides the greenery and weather, the seafood-lover fell in love with Singapore’s chilli crabs and black pepper crabs when she tried it here five years ago. Because she is on a tight schedule this time round, she said that she’s worried she may not have the chance to visit the restaurants for her favourite Singaporean dish. However, to help ease her cravings, her fans have already given her chilli crab sauce for her to bring back to Korea.
Expect a brand new #ParkShinHye in theaters near you soon
Korean actress Park Shin Hye is no stranger to the limelight - she made a splash in 2003 drama Stairway to Heaven as the younger counterpart of fellow actress Choi Ji Woo and has seen her career and popularity flourish since then.
The then-13-year-old probably wouldn’t have dreamed of making it big, but fast forward to 2017 and the actress has an impressive number of leading roles (both in film and dramas) under her belt, along with endorsement deals, Best Actress awards and more.
Popping by Singapore for skincare and makeup brand Mamonde’s event yesterday, the 27-year-old shared her excitement about being back on our sunny island for the first time in six years. Her last official visit was in April 2011, when she attended luxury brand Ferragamo’s Spring/Summer collection launch.
Starting off her busy day with a press conference at the W Singapore, she fielded questions from a carefully curated list, and shared with members of the media more about her skincare secrets (she believes that a good cleansing routine is as important as putting on good makeup), along with what she’s been up to recently (she recently wrapped filming on her upcoming movie Blackened Heart, and is looking to pick up a new project later this year).
A huge thank you to everyone who came down yesterday to catch Mamonde's ambassador Park Shin Hye (@ssinz7) Thank you for welcoming her with all your enthusiasm and loud cheers! We are truly honoured to have her gracing our sunny island and we hope to have her back soon!
