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 Innity 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.”
