What's your skin type?
Who or what influenced your skincare routine?
My mom has always been a stickler for having a skincare routine and I guess like [mother], like daughter. The skincare products I use are mostly clean beauty products that I have discovered through the years.
What is your evening skincare routine?
I wash my face with a mild wash liquid cleanser from BeautiqueMD or January Labs Cleansing Gel from Sigla. Then I dap my face dry with a clean washcloth after I use a retinol serum from Murad. Then [I] follow it up with Murad night cream. I dab Hindy Weber eye balm to top my routine. Once a week, I switch up to Pdh beauté full spectrum facial oil. Once a week, I use a Skin by Talulah pink clay mask or a Pearl sheet mask from KPOSH.
What are your holy grail products?
Good sunscreen and facial oil.
What skincare product can you not live without?
Thayers Witch Hazel facial mist, Supergoop glow screen SPF 40 and facial oils. I am currently switching between Hindy Weber healing oil, Face Lover by Skin by Talulah and Pdh Beauté.
How did you find a skincare routine that works for you?
I lean toward clean beauty products as much as possible currently and so far so good. As I age, I'm sure my routine and skin products will change.
What is a skincare hack you think we should know?
Drink lots of water. Treat [the] food you eat as part of your skincare [routine]. [Also], stress will make you break out. [Lastly], sleep heals everything.
Do you use facemasks?
Skin by Talulah and KPOSH sheet mask. I also use scrubs every so often.
Do you have a beauty/skincare horror story?
Yes. When I started using La Prairie here in manila when I first moved from Switzerland. It worked in a super dry environment but given manila is so humid, I just broke out.
How often do you practise skin fasting (a break from skincare)?
Once a month, for two to three days.
Are there any skincare rules you’ve broken that have done wonders to your skin?
I was given a scrub by a friend. It's supposed to have rose quartz incorporated in the blend. I love the idea of that.
