CLEO (Singapore) - - BEAUTY -

What is your daily skin­care rou­tine like?

I fo­cus on cleans­ing, ton­ing and in­cor­po­rat­ing a good essence, lo­tion and mois­tur­is­ing cream into my daily rou­tine.

What are your top three favourite SK-II prod­ucts?

My favourite is the SK-II Fa­cial Treat­ment Essence (FTE). Be­fore I started us­ing FTE, I wasn’t con­fi­dent of my skin’s con­di­tion, es­pe­cially be­fore an im­por­tant photo shoot. An­other prod­uct is the SK-II Fa­cial Treat­ment Re­pair C serum, which I use when my skin gets dry. My cheeks can also get red when dry, and this is when the SK-II Fa­cial Treat­ment Oil comes to the res­cue. One trick I’ve learnt to calm my skin is to pour the oil onto two cot­ton pads and then place them on my cheeks for a few min­utes.

What beauty lessons have you learnt over the past 10 years?

On days when I wear makeup, cleans­ing is ex­tremely im­por­tant af­ter I get home. I typ­i­cally have small bot­tles of toner in the bath­room that I use to spray on my face im­me­di­ately af­ter wash­ing when my skin is still wet, to keep my skin as mois­turised as pos­si­ble. I also try to go with­out makeup as much as pos­si­ble when I’m not work­ing to let my skin breathe.

[On planes, where the air is dry], I like to pam­per my skin with an SK-II Fa­cial Treat­ment Mask and get some beauty sleep.

[I also put FTE] in the fridge to keep it chilled for use on hot days as a quick pick-me-up. I sat­u­rate cot­ton pads and place them on the eye area to de-puff and mois­turise. Af­ter ap­ply­ing it on the face with a cot­ton pad, I use the ex­cess on dry ar­eas like the el­bows.
