Inside the Mind-Blowing Skincare Routine of a Korean Model

The woman in the photo below is 39 years old. This image wasn’t retouched or photoshopped—that’s what her skin looks like.

We’ll give you a moment to process that. All good? Now, let us introduce you to Lee Sa-Bi, a South Korean model, actress, and the first native Korean to pose for Playboy.

How can a 39-year-old’s skin possibly be this perfect? We’ve all heard about the superiority of Korean skincare routines, and most of us have sampled bits of it from lines like AmorePacific and Belif. But we wanted to take a closer look at the real skincare routine of someone with skin as youthful as Sa-Bi’s.

So with the help of fabulous translator Alicia Yoon, the founder of Peach & Lily, we spoke with the clear-skinned model. She told us the specifics of everything she uses—from toners to sheet masks and beyond. Trust us when we say her routine does not disappoint.
