Na­ture’s Per­fect Can­vas

Skin­care tips for keep­ing your face look­ing as pretty as a pic­ture


Hav­ing ra­di­ant, good-look­ing skin is more im­por­tant than be­ing beau­ti­ful. Busy yet awe­somely vi­brant, busi­ness­woman Hat­taya Wongkrachang, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Stu­dio 888, shares her tips for a fresh look.

“Now that my chil­dren are study­ing at uni­ver­sity, my fo­cus is on my work. Run­ning a 24-hour live ra­dio sta­tion is a tough job. When I get up each day my first thought is to check the sta­tus of the sta­tion. It is im­per­a­tive for me to have a good night’s sleep so that I am sharp dur­ing the day,” she ex­plains.

With such a de­mand­ing job, Hat­taya, known af­fec­tion­ately as Ple, says it is im­por­tant to keep good health in mind. “It’s about mak­ing the right choices. First I sleep well. Then I mind what I drink and eat. I make it a point to drink a lot of water and ab­stain from beef, keep­ing to more healthy food choices like fish. I used to ex­er­cise a lot. I played ten­nis, ran, biked and swam but now that I am busier, I have less time to work out. How­ever, I make sure that I stay ac­tive all day by do­ing a lot of walk­ing in the of­fice.”

But the best tip, Hat­taya ex­plains, is choos­ing what is right for your skin. “I don’t usu­ally ap­ply much make-up, un­less I have to at­tend an event or meet im­por­tant clients, so hav­ing nice skin mat­ters more to me. I make sure that I clean my face well and mois­turise my skin be­fore go­ing to bed. My choice is Sy­n­ac­tif from Cle de Peau Beaute. In my fa­cial care rou­tine I em­pha­sise car­ing for my eyes with Sy­n­ac­tif Eye Care Ri­tual. The next step is Sy­n­ac­tif Night­time Mois­tur­izer. This is very in­ten­sive, which is im­por­tant for re­fresh­ing the skin and al­low­ing it to re­ju­ve­nate overnight. For the day­time I choose the Sy­n­ac­tif Day­time Mois­tur­izer. It has a light and ra­di­ant fin­ish.”

Hat­taya says that a beau­ti­ful face means noth­ing with­out good skin. “Car­ing for the skin is im­por­tant. You may have beau­ti­ful fa­cial fea­tures and pro­por­tions but they will be wasted if you don’t have the per­fect can­vas to go with them.”

Her fi­nal tip is on health in gen­eral. “Peo­ple are in­cred­i­bly busy nowa­days, thus it is im­por­tant to take the small, easy but nec­es­sary steps to look af­ter your health. Breakfast is an im­por­tant meal—don’t skip it— and keep your­self well hy­drated with reg­u­lar glasses of water. Squeeze some ex­er­cise in too if you can, it will keep you fit and also help you to man­age stress bet­ter.” n
