Miller Khan

“As we live in a tropical country with hot and humid weather, keeping our skin hydrated and using sunscreen are very crucial to the health of our skin. My routine is pretty basic: cleansing, toning, moisturising, applying sunscreen and using face mist. My go-to skincare is organic and natural products that have less foam. I will also use orange essential oil for mood-boosting. Positivity is the key; be good and kind!”

James Lee

“I’d say the most important thing for me is to make sure I wash my face. I’ve gotten lazy with lotion and moisturisers and sunblock and all, but I just feel better after I wash my face with a good cleanser, whether it’s after a photoshoot or an intense workout. Pearlosophy has a cleanser called O2 Oxygen cleanser that’s my go-to.”

JC Chee

“I use skincare products during the day & night. In the morning, first I wash my face, then I apply with toner, third with serum, and lastly I apply with moisturiser. I would apply facial masks to replenish my skin once or twice a week. One important tip is that drink a lot of water to make sure the skin is hydrated.”

Our suggestions:

Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum 2.0

Josh Kua

“My skincare tip is to observe your diet. My skin used to break out with acne from time to time. Despite trying several different treatments, none of the solutions seemed to help in the long-term. Then I stopped drinking milk. I had started to feel lactose sensitive so I switched to non-dairy alternatives. It struck me months later that I no longer got blemishes. I like to keep my daily skincare routine simple. I use a non-drying facial wash; a lighter moisturiser for humid climates; and a heavier moisturiser in colder climates.”

Josh Kua’s recommended product: Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream Cleanser
SIMPLE Kind to Skin Foaming Facial Cleanser
