Song Hye Kyo is known for having a face that is perfect from every angle, a fact that she still giggles at when told because she thinks people overestimate her beauty. But one only needs to see her in real life to have faith in the moniker. At 36 years old, the Korean leading lady still has skin that visibly glows, as if time decided to skip past her on its way to ravage others with age.

We got to see her porcelain skin in person at the launch of the Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing collection in Hong Kong. Song, being the first-ever ambassador and muse for the brand, was at the event to unveil the new products, which include a water, serum and emulsion (for the lowdown on those goodies, click here). While her repertoire consists of all things Sulwhasoo, she swears by its cult ginseng line the most. The new serum, in particular, is a favourite. The lightweight formula restores the skin’s elasticity while hydrating deeply with precious ginseng seed oil.

To get into the thick of how Song remains looking so young, we sat down with her prior to the launch in Hong Kong to hear some of her choice tips:

On her routine

“I start with the Concentrated Ginseng Renewing water, move on to the serum, use the cream, and then the mask. The next morning, when I wake up, my skin is very firm, moisturised and healthy.”

On her skincare secrets

“Just like all other women, on off-days, I do facials to make sure my skin stays as is. As women get older, changes will come to your face no matter what, so I just try to keep those away with facials and skincare.”

On healthy habits

“Besides my skincare routine and facials, I’ve tried to exercise more regularly now that I’m in my 30s. I do yoga often, and there is the Han River in Seoul that I try to walk or run around as much as I can. I feel like when I’m sweating and exercising, my skin is visibly healthier.”

The new Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing products are available at all Sulwhasoo boutiques islandwide.
