Skincare Tips from Real Life Kang Mo Yeon : Beauty Advice from SurgeryChick

Real life Kang Mo Yeon beauty advice! Today, we’re introducing you to another Nara & Co family, SurgeryChick, who is currently volunteering her time in Colombia as a Trauma Surgeon. She sends her best beauty advice from her “Medi-Cube” in Colombia as she battles off mosquitoes, takes delight in trying new food and culture, and otherwise kicking butt and saving lives.


What would Descendants of the Sun Song Hye-Kyo be wearing in Uruk? We asked this real life Kang Mo Yeon what she carries in her makeup bag, what her skincare routine looks like, and how she keeps her skin beautiful despite those gruelling on call hours as a Surgeon. She took us shopping for her favorite and must-have beauty items.

Call Nights – For those long hours at the hospital

Sum Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick – it’s portable and perfect for surgeons who are on the go 24/7.



Post Call – For those few sweet hours after a long shift

Kate Somerville Exfolikate – because skin feels totally gross post call after working 24 hours straight.



The Face Shop Mask – to keep her skin hydrated after exfoliation.

Hot Colombia Weather Must Have Items

Konjac Sponge – It’s portable, and most importantly, keeps those pores unclogged.

AM Routine: EltaMD Tinted Sunscreen – absorbs fast and it’s light. Doesn’t make the skin greasy when she sweats. The tint also gives just a tiny amount of color and coverage.
