song hye kyo's good skin is famous in the entertainment industry, lately her natural (no-makeup) pictures were released on the web, although there was no hint of foundation, her skin still had a "see-through"-glowing-texture. let's see her beauty secrets:
1) whitening file:
--did you know about the very affordable & useful egg white-whitening use?
~use a fresh egg white (egg minus the egg yolk) and spoonful of honey & mix evenly. before bed...apply to your face. wait a while for it to dry. rinse with water (remember to rinse off!!!)...use every 2 weeks. ~
[the egg white may stimulate the skin cell, stimulates blood circulation, effectively repairs any facial damage..(i assume like freckles & what not)....the egg-yolk includes the rich lecithin, the glycerin trinitrate fat and the vitellin, is element which in very many whitening products must contain.]
other uses of honey:
~take honey & add 2 to 3 times water to dilute...apply to face & massage. helps brighten skin & reduce fine lines. use every 2 weeks.~
~a spoonful of honey, powdered milk, 1 egg white, mix well then apply face. use a cotton pad to apply a light layer. wait 20 mins than rinse with water. use ever 2 weeks...good for dry skin.~
milk makes the skin soft & smooth:
~song hye kyo's other secret is using milk to wash her face...also often using milk as mask for facial...making her skin soft like velvet. when busy filming...to relieve tired skin and keep the firmness of skin...song hye kyo uses cucumber mask for emergency purposes.~
~song hye kyo's secret is stay away from food that is bad for the skin...like chocolate, coke, black tea (it's actually "紅茶"...but i think it's called black tea in english...ie...lipton i think is considered black tea)...etc...song hye kyo firmly refuses to eat. she eats lots of fruits, veggies, and occassional egg. she also pays attention to vitamins, for moisture.~
3) face slimming
~song hye kyo also taught a trick that makes the face seem smaller. use ice cubes (yes...ice cubes...they say cold will make your skin firmer therefore smaller...)+ 冰涼玉石...(im not sure what this is)..in the summer to massage the tired skin...this helps her skin feel more firm & tight..displaying a new fresh charm.~

this is something i found from another forum...thought id share it with everyone here...just something to check out...ive actually tried the milk as a mask...it does leave your skin glowing! the milk mask seems to work too cuz my mom asked me once if i had foundation on when all i been doing was the mask!
to answer some people's questions:
-for the egg white + honey mask: use a RAW egg. EGG - EGG YOLK = EGG WHITE
-for the milk mask: (in this particular article it never specified what TYPE of milk to use...but usually they say to use lowfat milk...as for powdered...i duno.) you take milk & pour it into a small bowl then take a cotton pad & apply it on your face. there is a high chance it will drip...so just lightly dab at the dripping parts on your face. wait 15-20 mins for it to dry. once it's dry wash it off. then apply moisturizer.
-this article states its best to do the masks at night before bed. you apply it before bed then remove it!
