It's rare for K-pop stars to appear on camera without makeup, let alone remove it all for the world to see, but two members from the Korean girl group Twice dared to break the norm by revealing their post-concert skin care routines during a live broadcast on V Live. Im Nayeon and Son Chaeyoung removed their stage makeup on camera, showing their fans the entire process without any cuts.
The obvious skin care junkie between the two was Nayeon. According to the singer, even if she's not that great at doing her makeup, she does know how to take it off properly. And because she probably wears a lot of makeup when she performs, she showed her fans not only one, not even two, but four cleansing steps! Below's a rundown on her beauty routine that keeps her skin clean and clear:
Step 1: Cleansing wipes
Nayeon starts by removing her false eyelashes. She uses a cleansing wipe first to make sure her lashes are free of mascara, then proceeds to wiping off her eye and lip makeup.

Step 2: Cream cleanser
With the first layer of gunk out of the way, Nayeon melts off the bulk of her makeup with a cleanser. From the looks of it, her go-to is a washable cream which she works into her skin and simply rinses off.

Step 3: Oil cleanser
The third step involves a cleansing oil that takes care of whatever step one and two might have missed, like eyeliner and mascara. The two were filmed using a purple bottle from Biore, which is available locally!

Step 4: Foam cleanser
Finally, all traces of excess oil and makeup is washed away with the last cleansing step: a foam cleanser. Nayeon works a rich lather onto her skin, making sure not to miss any spots. If that's not a thorough cleansing routine for you, then we don't know what is!

Step 5: Sheet mask
In the broadcast, Nayeon and Chaeyoung skipped toner and essence to moisturize with a sheet mask. According to Allure, the mask they used is a hydrating one from a Japanese brand called Minon. It's Nayeon's favorite, which she claims to use almost every day! In fact, she loves it so much that she makes sure to use all the essence from the packet, spreading the extra liquid all over her neck. (See our favorite ones here!)

Step 6: Lip balm
After the mask comes lip balm, which Nayeon applies with her mask on. Her go-to is this Pawpaw ointment she received from a fan. "This is the best lip product ever," she claims.

Step 7: Moisturizer & Eye Cream
Since she has dry skin, Nayeon likes to seal in the hydration from the sheet mask with a few more products. For her face, she applies a generous amount of moisturizer or night cream. Her eye cream, on the other hand, is to help brighten her dark circles.
