So, how important is perfect clean skin, anyway

Recommended Posts

You know, like, zero blemishes and imperfection of sorts. None.

I don't think I've seen anyone that has it be legitimately ugly, even if their face shape as a whole isn't stellar. Like, you see all these adorable Asian idols and the like with amazing wtf skin, but they also have like really nice features overall.

I think it makes a hell of a difference, people just don't know it.

What kind of make-up.

Like, does God use that make up. Because they look insane.

Healthy, clean skin makes a huge difference. Still, everyone has different skin types and different skin problems. Like, I have combination dry/oily skin but otherwise don't get a lot of pimples/blackheads because I take care of it. I do have huge pores though, so I can get make up and dirt trapped in there easily no matter what -- that's just my skin type. Asian skin could just be different in general. But as far as idols go, it probably has to do with a very extensive skin care routine and expensive make up. When your face is basically your brand, you tend to go above and beyond to keep it looking good.

very important, at least to me ? i don't really have particularly attractive facial features so i kinda have to make up for it with clear skin

 

also most korean idol photos are photoshopped, and there aren't really videos of them close-up enough to see their flaws, so bb cream is enough to cover it up i think. of course there are idols who naturally have really nice skin anyway (fuck them) but it's probably difficult to retain when they wear heavy layers of makeup on a daily basis, even with extensive skincare

I mean, this is one of those cases where the importance varies per person \o/ It's aaaaaaaaaaaaall opinion

and yes the korean idols wear make-up and they all have professional make-up artists who do their make-up for them (although idk if there are some idols who decide to always prepare their own make-up or not)

because once you see them bare-faced you'll see they have some imperfections on their skin as well like any normal human being

and frankly probably the reason their faces are all so perfect is that cosmetic surgery is super common for idols \o/ Though some of them just have their "perfection" naturally and I'm sure there are other various causes involved with their skin/facial structure or overall body appearance as well

Yeah bb cream works great for me when I want my skin to look good.  I normally go all natural and don't wear make up because I tend to break out more if I wear foundation more then a couple of times a week.  I have zits some times and my skin is not perfect but I am pretty happy with my skin.  I think healthy skin is good and is a sign that the person is healthy.

Healthy skin is different from perfect skin.  Quite honestly, if someone has a perfect and shiny face, I get a little intimidated because they look so perfect.  However, if someone's face has a few blemishes or whatever here and there, I think it's better because it's more humane in my opinion.

Plus, the Asian idols such as in KPop or JPop all wear makeup because it makes them more presentable.  Also, plastic surgery...there's always that as well.

Personally, I should think 'perfect' skin doesn't matter. Clean, healthy skin is a whole other matter. I have particularly dry skin so I have to make sure that it's clean and moisturised for it to stay healthy. Occasional breakouts can be caused from anything from stress levels (like an exam or something) to air pollution. So I don't think it should matter too much, as otherwise surely we'd all end up looking the same.

As far as kpop idols go I'm sure they have specialist makeup and skin experts; photoshoped faces in videos and photos; and stage lights can do wonders for masking skin problems.

I hate it when people say nice-looking skin is an indication of health. I know plenty of people who are healthy and sporty as fuck who have pretty shitty-looking skin.

Also, what the hell's the difference in "healthy-looking" to "aesthetic-looking".

Healthy: Looks great without any additions

Aesthetic: Laced up with foundation and other things like powder

I think that was the intention....

Yeah you can have perfect skin and still end up getting skin cancer heh This is probably a massive stretch but you get it anyway
