If you are wondering how Cyndi Wang maintained her youthful looks, keep scrolling to see Cyndi’s skincare tips that we have compiled for you.
She’s serious with her skincare routine
Cyndi is conscientious with her skincare routine and persist in it even when her complexion looks good.
Cyndi shared that good skin requires regular maintenance. She said that even if you feel that your skin looks great, you’ll still need to continue with your routine so that you can sustain its tip-top condition.
“Your skin knows when you are lazy, and that’s when skin dullness will come a-knocking.”
She focuses on cleansing and hydration
The two skincare steps that Cyndi is most focused on? Cleansing and hydration.
Cyndi shares that cleansing is important because it affects how well skincare products that you apply subsequently are absorbed into skin.
As for hydration, she said that it forms the foundation of good skin, so it has to be done properly.
She’s super gentle with her skin
Cyndi takes care to use gentle motions when she’s doing makeup removal or skincare application.
She said that she avoids tugging her skin, which can cause sensitivity. Pressure applied on the skin, coupled with exposure to environmental aggressors, according to Cyndi, can lead to skin dryness and signs of ageing.
Besides being physically gentle with her skin, she is also gentle with the way she treats her mind. Cyndi said that she puts on music when she does her skincare routine, so that she can feel more relaxed and comfortable.
She consumes lots of fruits and water
We probably already know this: fruits and water are good for you.
Cyndi shared that apart from using sunscreen faithfully, she also consumes lots of fruits and water to keep her skin looking radiant and even-toned.
She said that fruits and water help improve metabolism and gut health; the former also provide natural vitamin C to the skin, to improve skin radiance.
Cyndi Wang works out regularly
Working out doesn’t just help her maintain her svelte physique, but also improves her complexion.
Cyndi hits the gym at least two to three times a week and engages in a variety of exercises including aerial yoga, core training, zumba, and weightlifting.
In fact, she had been training under a coach and is able to deadlift 40kg, which is close to her body weight!
Cyndi advises women not to be “afraid” of working out but to take a step at a time and to persist in it.
She said that once you get used to working out, you’ll build a habit and would start feeling “odd” not to do it regularly!
