Moving between motherhood and philanthropic work, this is how Anne Wang-Liu keeps her skin smooth, supple and glowing while she’s on the go

Anne Wang-Liu wears many hats: she is co-chair of the Hong Kong Ballet Guild, and a member of the board of governors for Hong Kong Ballet and Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre. And for Anne, the last quarter of the year is always the busiest. The Hong Kong Ballet Guild is deep in preparations for The Nutcracker Christmas Benefit on December 10, while the Fayre of St. John’s—one of the biggest fundraising events of the year for Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre—is scheduled for November 30.

Add to that two children, one of whom is in secondary school, and you could say Anne has her hands full. How does she juggle it all?

“I try to stay organised and I’m careful with my time management,” says Anne. “The months leading up to December are always a busy time, but I love that I get to support both the arts and culture of Hong Kong, as well as healthcare.”

Given the numerous meetings and rehearsals she has to attend in the lead-up to the two events, Anne has little time left to dedicate to a thorough skincare routine. As one of the key organisers for both events, however, she has to be camera-ready—which means keeping her skin in top condition. Annie makes sure she stays hydrated throughout the day and she relies on Synactif, Cle de Peau Beauté’s top-of-the-line collection, which eliminates toxins from the skin’s lymphatic system in order to keep it moisturised, silky and radiant.

“I don't have time for facials during the day, so I compensate by being quite diligent with my skincare routine at night once the kids are in bed and the homework is done,” says Anne, laughing. “The Synactif range is great because it is so moisturising, it revives and plumps up my skin overnight.

“I use the soap as my cleanser, followed by the nighttime moisturiser as a serum, and the cream, which is particularly suitable for fall and winter, when it is cooler and drier.”

The Synactif range also includes a toner, a daytime moisturiser and a set for eye care, all featuring a natural rose fragrance. Says Anne, “I spend my days looking after my family and heading to meetings, so it is nice to take a few minutes at night just for myself.”
