Yoo In Na is probably one of the most underrated actresses in South Korea. Being in the biz for more than a decade now, she has had only a few lead roles under her belt and is almost always cast as a supporting character (you might remember her as Jun Ji Hyun’s frenemy in My Love from the Star). But in her latest portrayal in tvN’s romantic fantasy drama Goblin, where she plays an attractive chicken restaurant owner who falls in love with a grim reaper, In Na has got us all convinced that she deserves her rightful spot in the big leagues.
There’s not a question in our minds that the 34-year-old Hallyu star is every bit leading lady material. After all, she not only has the talent but also the looks to show for it. This actress totes represents our K-beauty goals: straight brows, invisible pores, radiant skin? Check, check, check! So naturally, we did some digging to uncover her beauty secrets—but the surprising part? Her secret weapon to having clear, glowing skin is not as complicated as you think.
Turns out, Yoo In Na’s ultimate beauty secret is... water. (Yup, you read that right!) Just. Water.
As you might already know, keeping yourself hydrated plays a crucial role to keeping your skin moisturized. According to KDrama Stars, In Na takes this routine very seriously and makes sure that she drinks plenty of water every day. "Everyone knows that drinking enough water is good for the skin, but it's not easy to actually put it into practice," she said. "That's why I set an alarm for every hour, and I drink a glass every time the alarm rings."
In another interview with Yahoo, In Na once again stressed the importance of daily water intake, in addition to following a healthy diet. “The basic but the most effective skin care tip is drinking a lot of water and eating good foods. When I feel like I need to watch my figure, I only drink water two or three days. I eat brown rice instead of white one. I also like to eat steamed cabbage. Not eating junk foods makes a huge difference in a week.”
