Monsta X K-Pop Star IM Talks About Beauty Routine and Pressure to Have Perfect Skin

We already know that K-Pop stars have some of the most enviable complexions. Factor in Instagram-fueled beauty trends like "glass skin" and "honey skin" â€" plus the explosion of all things K-beauty in general â€" and you've got a recipe for a lot of pressure to look #flawless both on your feeds and IRL. As Allure reported, it's a pressure that popular K-Pop boy band Monsta X can also relate to.

You don't have to be a celebrity to understand what it feels like to deal with beauty standards, but for K-Pop stars in particular, having poreless skin is almost a requirement for the job. That said, internationally-known pop stars aren't immune from the occasional breakout, and the group's transparency proves exactly that. "We are celebrities, and we care about our skin so much," Monsta X member I.M. told Allure. "But 24/7, [our skin] can't always be clear."

While having a healthy outlook on beauty and self-care definitely comes first, the band members also took the time to share their skincare routines and must-have products. (Spoiler alert: Not every member has an elaborate, eleven-step routine.) According to Allure, Wonho relies on a hydrating face mist, while Minhyuk takes a more systematic approach and advises fans to "find out which ingredients work for you and which ones don't work." For him, hyaluronic acid is key to getting a hydrated, radiant complexion.

It's not just about the products, though: Monsta X's members are steadfast about how they actually apply their skincare routines, too. KiHyun says he likes to "pat" his products on, but I.M. calls the motion closer to "slapping his face," owing to the fact that it "makes a huge sound." Whatever works, right?

As for I.M.? He washes his face with an electronic cleansing brush, then proceeds with toner, eye cream, essence, serum, lotion, followed by an oil-free moisturizer or night cream for his skin. However, his best piece beauty of advice? Not letting a breakout or imperfection make you feel inferior. "A positive mind is a part of getting better skin," he says. "Even if our skin is bad, we don't really care."

Other K-Pop mega groups like BTS and EXO have recently ventured into beauty and hair care, respectively, to the delight of their fans worldwide. With that in mind, perhaps a Monsta X-approved skincare range is coming sooner than we think?
