I cannot live without… SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence. It keeps my skin hydrated and glowing, which in turn makes me feel comfortable and confident in my own skin.

My addiction began when… I was 13, with masks and essences! Thanks to my father, who used to buy me beauty products while on business trips to Korea.

My skincare ritual… Is truly the best part of my day—it’s my daily therapy! I start with a cleanser, followed by SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence, a serum or two from Sunday Riley, an eye cream from Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair range and a moisturiser from ést.lab. Then, I mask three times a week with Skin Inc and Fresh.

I learnt about the importance of skincare from… My mother. She instilled that in me as early as primary school.

Makeup to me is… About enhancing your natural beauty. I have a strong jawline and cheekbones, which I highlight with sweeps of Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder.

I honestly have too many… Tubes of lipsticks. Matte, satin, gloss; I have an endless supply of them all.

My newest obsessions are… HERA’s UV Mist Cushion Cover, Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick in N°5 and Urban Decay’s Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette.

I never leave the house without… HERA’s Sun Mate Daily sunblock and a stash of Band-Aids, because some shoes are truly not meant for walking.

My beauty secrets are… Natural supplements like grape seed or flaxseed oil. These oils are antioxidants, reducing inflammation and boosting health from within.
