On her daily routine… I start off with cleansing, then pat on softener before massaging two pumps of Shiseido Ultimune into my skin. Next, I follow with a serum and moisturiser.

On the importance of proper cleansing… I always cleanse my skin thoroughly at the end of the day, no matter how tired I am. And I do a count when cleansing my face so that I never rush through it. It’s something that my mother instilled in me since I was young and I’ve been doing it since.

On her favourite skin superfoods… I take some supplements but also load up on antioxidants. My favourites are strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. I also load up on orange juice and water. And when it comes to food, I try to avoid greasy food and go for lighter options.

On her beauty habits in the past… When I was younger, I always just wanted to try the best, the most luxurious and expensive. I also used to do masks and visited spas regularly but since I’ve become a mother, I’ve had to prioritise my son. So all these extensive, time-consuming steps had to take a backseat.

On her skin condition… My skin is pretty sensitive and prone to redness. So it’s always tough to switch and try new products, be it skincare, makeup and even shampoo and hairspray.

On her Ultimune experience… Since I’ve started using Ultimune, I notice that my skin immunity has definitely improved. My skin is less prone to flare-ups and my skin absorbs serums and creams better. It also helps with hydration and firming, and even my makeup artist notices the difference.
