Baekhyun’s dewy skin is definitely a dream that every girl wants to live. That's why we’ve dived deep to find out what’s in Baekhyun’s skincare regimen and came across his recent favorite Korean brand TirTir — a cult-favorite brand that all EXO-Ls should keep an eye out for.

If you want to achieve the coveted Korean glass skin complexion, learn from EXO Baekhyun's top skincare tip: keeping your skin moist and hydrated. Baekhyun's not-so-secret beauty weapon is TirTir's Rosemary One Essence which contains 100% Jeju rosemary extracts naturally grown and cold-brewed to retain their nutrients with a comforting water-like texture to calm and nourish your skin. Chosen as one of Allure Editor's Picks in 2019, this award-winning essence also offers ample antioxidants to protects your skin from looking dull and aged.

With all the makeup EXO is wearing on stage, it feels right that the first step of their skincare routines is washing off the makeup. But what’s next? Chanyeol once shared in an interview that no matter how tired he is, he never misses doing these two steps after removing makeup — toner and moisturizer. But Chanyeol also likes to go the extra mile with Nacific’s Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence.

Of course we can talk about Korean glass skin without the illuminating, pearlescent glow. EXO Chanyeol keeps his blemish-free complexion so smooth and glowy with Nacific's Phyto Niacin Whitening Essence, which is specifically tailored for dull, lackluster skin. The reason why this essence is one of EXO Chanyeol's Nacific favorites is its skin-brightening synergy effect, thanks to the rich mix of niacinamide, bamboo sap, hyaluronic acid + vitamin C derivatives. Just like EXO Chanyeol, this powerhouse essence is the hardest-worker in the bunch.

Who doesn't love a brand that’s authentic and honest? EXO's Sehun is no exception! The charming K-pop prince has become the face of the K-Beauty brand SOME BY MI and the label's latest launch is already a dream catch. The new Super Matcha series is designed to treat easily irritated skin and sensitive skin with acne struggles. So in case you're wondering where Sehun's glass skin complexion comes from, you're looking right at the skincare hero.

Sehun's trusty favorite from the series, the SOME BY MI Super Matcha Pore Clean Cleansing Gel, is a truly a godsend when it comes to pore-clearing treatment.

EXO had been the official face for the K-Beauty label NATURE REPUBLIC for 8 years, and Suho had always been vocal about his love for NATURE REPUBLIC's Ginseng Royal Silk Eye Cream, aka the very important skincare tip and reason why the K-pop idol always looks so well-rested and refreshed on and off stage despite his busier-than-life daily schedule.

If you want to also fake a well-rested glow the next morning after pulling an all-nighter the night before, there's no one better to learn from than EXO Suho. Consider NATURE REPUBLIC's Ginseng Royal Silk Eye Cream your under-eyes' BFF. This luxury eye treatment contains red ginseng extract, royal jelly with silk amino acids which provides ample nourishment and moisture to your eyes.
