MORE THAN SKIN-DEEP
Using quality skincare isn’t enough – good lifestyle habits are just as important for healthy skin, shares Dana Goh, marketing manager of Kose and Cosme Decorte.
Protect your lips “Aside from using lip balm in the day, apply it at night – especially if you sleep in an air-conditioned room – to prevent your lips from drying out.” Two to go “If I’m in a rush, I apply foundation or BB cream, then an eyeliner like Cosme Decorte AQ MW Lasting Gel Eyeliner ($55), and I’m good to go.” Best beauty advice “My grandmother says a genuine smile wins out any time.” Sleep with a clean face “I remove my makeup completely and cleanse well to unclog my pores, so that my skin can better repair itself overnight.”
“To maintain healthy skin, I drink a lot of water and fruit juices, and take vitamin C and collagen supplements. Exercise is important too – I go for dance classes at my gym.”
Take extra care against spots “Pigmentation spots have started to appear on my skin even though I use sunscreen regularly. To keep my complexion clear and even-toned, I use Kose Sekkisei Clear Whitening Mask ($35) to brighten my skin and remove blackheads, sebum and dirt at the same time, and the Kose Innity XX range with its antiageing, hydrating and brightening benefits.”
“If I have no time in the mornings, the bare minimum I do is cleanse, tone, moisturise and use a suncreen.”
