Only the best for the best.
Not sure about you, but the first thing we notice about celebrities is their skin. (we may or may not be guilty of appreciating their flawless complexions instead of focusing on what’s happening on-screen…) Ever wondered how they juggle their hectic lifestyles while maintaining their healthy, radiant skin?
These 5 famous women have gathered more than a chunk of skincare-related knowledge over the length of their illustrious careers. Read on to find out the tidbits of wisdom they have for keeping their skin glowing at a goddess level.
#1 – Jesseca Liu
As one of Singapore’s top actresses, Jesseca Liu doesn’t look a day over 30 (but has already hit the big 4)! The number one tip from Jesseca is to protect your skin from the sun. The number one tip from Jesseca is to protect your skin from the sun. No one can escape the sun’s rays, indoors or outdoors, and it is a must to prevent the harmful UV rays from damaging your skin. Jesseca makes sure to apply sunscreen on her skin every day, and especially so when she has an outdoor shoot.
Her final step to any skincare routine before she heads out would be ést.lab’s bestseller SunShield SPF50***, a multi-tasking sunscreen that provides sun protection, soothes and repairs sun-damaged skin, and acts as a sheer make-up base due to its self-adjusting tinted pigment. It’s perfect for busy ladies who want to look good without compromising their time!
#2 – Gemma Chan
You may know Gemma Chan from her acting gig as Astrid Leong in Crazy Rich Asians. And if not, well, even non-fans can appreciate her drop dead gorgeous looks and flawless skin. The former fashion model is big on creams and moisturisers. It’s all about moisturising twice daily for this actress, and we couldn’t agree more!
Always moisturise once in the day, and again at night. You can use a more lightweight cream in the morning to keep your skin hydrated and prepped for makeup, and keep the richer creams for night use. For day use, try the fast-absorbing the ActivCalm Anti-Stress Hydra Cream. Not only does it help to provide your skin with the hydration it needs, its anti-pollution formula would protect your skin from external stressors too!
At night, try the VitaLift A+ Cellular Ultra-Repair Cream which helps to renew and revitalise your skin’s barrier, and provide your skin with the nutrients it needs to keep it smooth and supple!
#3 – Michelle Obama
She may be best known as the former First Lady of the United States of Amercia, but did you know Michelle Obama is also a lawyer and an acclaimed author? Envious of her great complexion? Her personal facialist revealed that her signature radiant-from-within skin is the result of collagen and Vitamin C. Before any public speaking arrangements, Michelle would get a Vitamin C facial infused with collagen that amps up her skin’s glow.
Collagen is known to promote glowing, vibrant skin. It provides elasticity to the skin, making it appear more youthful and healthy. Vitamin C, on the other hand, has antioxidant properties that help to boost your skin’s collagen production, giving you plumper and firmer skin.
Want something similar? We offer our own Vitamin Energy Facial Treatment, chock-full of multi-vitamins including Vitamin C. This facial stimulates collagen production and leaves an instant moisturising effect for firmer, more supple skin.
#4 – Park Min-Young
South Koreans are well-known for their 10-step skincare routines. Their celebrities are no less renowned for their poreless and dewy skin such as Park Min-Young. The actress’s fame has been steadily growing with her stellar acting roles in highly rated Korean dramas like City Hunter, Healer, and most recently, What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?.
“Because of my job as an actress, I have to put on makeup for a long period. When I’m filming a drama, I have to wear makeup for 20 to 24 hours. My face gets dry and bad really fast. So every time I have a break – even a short break – I would take off my makeup. I also put on two to three masks a day.”
Turns out, the secret to her glowing skin is all about cleansing and masking! Makeup falls into the same category as dirt and other gunky pollutants when it comes to skincare, so always make sure your skin is cleansed properly at the end of the day. For a cleanser that not only does it job but also hydrates your skin, try the ActivCalm Gentle Cleansing Milk.
You’re definitely missing out if you’ve not tried our multi-tasking serum-based VitaLift A+ Brillage Face Mask that’s chock-full of actives to provide you with anti-ageing, brightening and hydrating benefits! A short 15-20 minutes is all you need to get your skin glowing like a hallyu star!
#5 – Karlie Kloss
A supermodel and an entrepreneur, Karlie Kloss is living the glamorous Hollywood life. To keep her skin in tip-top condition, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel believes in loving your skin (after all, you only have one of it) and pampering it occasionally.
In a 2016 interview with Vogue UK, Karlie mentioned “Skin is the one thing you wear every day so I’ve always been a big believer in taking good care of it. The biggest thing for me is just wiping everything off at the end of the day since it’s part of my job to have make-up layered on all the time. I’m so terrible sometimes, like any other girl, when you can’t help picking at your skin, but I’ve learned the best way is just to keep it clean and treat yourself to a facial once in a while.”
If you, like Karlie, can’t stop picking at the whiteheads, blackheads, and other blemishes on your skin, take a trip down to one of our outlets for an Acne Biotic Facial Treatment. Let our specialists do the pampering for you. We can never stress how important it is to leave the pimple extractions to the professional if you don’t want to leave any scars on your skin! Trust us, you’ll be in good hands!
In summary, cleanse, moisturise, slap on sunscreen, and treat yourself to regular sheet mask sessions and facial treatments. Follow these tips and get your well-deserved goddess-like glow in no time!
In Good Hands,
