Alicia Amin, who is not only an actress and model but also a talented singer, is known for her fearless attitude and stunning beauty.

She firmly believes that achieving flawless skin requires dedication and effort and it all comes down to the food you consume, exercise, and regular facial treatments. The secret to her flawless complexion lies in her unwavering commitment to her skincare routine.

When it comes to her essential beauty products, Alicia can’t live without a reliable makeup remover and a proper cleanser. According to her, no toner, moisturiser, or facial essence can work effectively if there are still traces of makeup left on your skin.

This is why her top priority is always to start with a clean and makeup-free canvas for her skincare regimen.

Lesson we learnt? If there’s one product you should invest in, let it be your cleanser.

Double cleansing method

Started his career as a radio DJ in 2015, Chan Phei Yong seamlessly transitioned into a full-time YouTuber.

Today, he wears many hats, including being the founder of CMaker Production, a TV and video production company, and serving as a style influencer collaborating with top-notch fashion brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Longchamp to create fashion content.

Given the demands of his work, Phei Yong generously shares his grooming routine, especially after long hours of shooting. He acknowledges the toll heavy makeup and extended working hours can take on his skin.

Like Alicia Amin, Phei Yong is fastidious with his cleansing routine and is an advocate for the double cleansing method.

This approach entails using an oil-based cleanser to effectively remove stubborn, waterproof makeup. It is then followed by a water-based cleanser to refresh and cleanse the skin and pores.

Even if you don’t wear makeup, adopting the double cleansing method can offer significant benefits to your skin, shared Phei Yong.

Having appeared in several local movies like Pintu Merah, Ratu Ilmu Hitam, and Eyang Putri, Miller Khan has earned recognition in the film industry.

He believes that in our hot and humid climate, it’s vital to keep our skin well-hydrated and shielded from the sun. Miller Khan’s skincare routine is quite simple where he uses skincare products that are organic and natural with low foam.

Additionally, he incorporates orange essential oil for a mood boost, emphasising the importance of maintaining a positive and kind outlook on life.

Make dietary modifications for healthy skin

Josh Kua, a former lawyer turned musician-and-model, emphasises the significance of maintaining a healthy diet for radiant skin.

Having dealt with persistent skin breakouts, he has tirelessly experimented with a range of treatments, yet none have proven to be a lasting solution. However, he eventually suspected that he might be lactose intolerant and decided to eliminate milk from his diet.

To his surprise, months later, he noticed that he was no longer experiencing blemishes.

Lesson we learnt here: your diet may be the reason why your skin is suffering. Keep a food journal and using the elimination method, see if you can identify the food culprit behind your skin woes.

In addition to his dietary adjustments for healthy skin, Josh incorporates a gentle, non-drying facial cleanser into his skincare routine. For humid climates, he opts for a lightweight moisturiser, while in colder weather, he switches to a heavier moisturiser.

These skincare choices, combined with his dietary modifications, have contributed to a much better skin condition.

Caring for your locks

Caring for your hair is a key aspect of self-confidence, according to content creator and influencer Ash Edward, who never lets her role deter her from self-care, especially when it comes to maintaining her hair.

She emphasises that investing in a good quality shampoo and conditioner is non-negotiable, as it plays a pivotal role in preserving hair health and preventing issues like hair loss or thinning due to constant colouring.

Before stepping into the shower, she indulges in a pampering routine that includes the Aromatica Rosemary Scalp Scrub, offering her scalp the personal care it truly deserves. Following that, she treats her hair to the luxurious Botánica Cristal Sérum from Chloe Professional Paris. The serum is enriched with natural ingredients like argan and rosehip seed oil, effectively repairs structural damage and mends split ends.

Her shower experience continues with the Botánica Anti Loss Therapy Shampoo, and she completes the ritual with the Botánica Absolut Protect Masque, serving as an intensive deep conditioner to rejuvenate and strengthen her damaged and weakened hair.

Amanda Chaang, the popular host on Astro SuperSport, attributes her timeless beauty and skincare wisdom to her mother’s early teachings. From a young age, her mother instilled in her the importance of a simple skincare routine which involves cleansing, toning, and moisturising, Amanda shared in an interview.

As she grew older, her mother also shared the importance of using eye cream, a lesson Amanda deeply appreciates. Anti-ageing eye cream is crucial as signs of ageing begin to manifest around the eye area mostly.

Moreover, Amanda follows a “less is more” approach when it comes to makeup, which has become a part of her daily routine. This minimalist perspective underscores her belief that sometimes, a more natural look is the most beautiful one.

Amber Chia, known for her stunning skin, owes her healthy complexion to her mother’s timeless advice to drink plenty of water.

Amber acknowledges that her mom, who wasn’t particularly into skincare or makeup, had a unique way of ensuring their skin stayed in top shape when they were young, by constantly reminding them to consume at least eight glasses of water every day.

This simple habit, instilled by her mother, has stayed with her, and looking back, she believes it was the best thing she ever did for her skin. It’s a testament to the idea that healthy skin always begins with staying well-hydrated.
