Known for her award-winning acting skill and always perfect skin, Kim Tae-hee has recently dominated the K-drama scene with Hi Bye, Mama! on Netflix, starring alongside Lee Kyu-hyung and Go Bo-gyeol.

With her recent success in Hi Bye, Mama!, Kim Tae-hee’s creamy cream skin has again become the focus of public attention. So naturally, we’ve delved deep to find out her beauty secrets.

You might not be surprised that we start off with hydration when you think of Kim Tae-hee’s dewy, cream skin in Hi Bye, Mama!. Some people may think of applying moisturizers as the final step in their skincare routine when they hear the word hydration but it is more than that. Don’t get us wrong, moisturizers are definitely an essential part of every skincare regimen to replenish hydration to skin but we can always take a step or multiple steps further to achieve the Korean chok-chok skin. We’re talking about your toner and serum. Take notes from Kim Tae-hee and be picky with the ingredients in your skincare.

At the age of 40, Kim Tae-hee gives off an impression of having time frozen on her face (or to be exact, on her rounded, wide-set eyes), which explains her flawless, cream skin in Hi Bye, Mama!. Nonetheless, you must have heard people saying ‘the eyes are the first sign of aging’, which is because they are prone to crow’s feet and fine lines around the corner. As we age, the loss of elasticity of our skin slowly induces the formation of wrinkles, leaving behind creases of time on our face but to Kim Tae-hee, it seems like a different story. Continuing the actress’ insistence on skincare ingredients, it is important to have anti-aging ingredients in your skincare products, especially in your eye products.

3. Brightening Your Cream Skin Complexion

What You Need: Niacinamide and Vitamin C

With Kim Tae-hee’s flawless, fair skin on and off screens, it seems reasonable for us to move on to talk about how to induce radiance to our skin. You might have heard the word ‘whitening’ in many Korean skin care products but it doesn’t really mean bleaching your skin to a lighter tone; it’s more about brightening your complexion, much like Kim Tae-hee’s cream skin complexion in Hi Bye, Mama!. Brightening could mean fighting dark spots, hyperpigmentation and acne scars to help you achieve a more even skin tone but nothing to do with your skin color.
