We’re always on the hunt for “the one” — that one pivotal product that can drastically change our lives forever. Our need to meet those unrealistic beauty standards, impossible as it may be, fuels our ambitious hunger to inch ourselves closer to “perfection”.
We continue our experimental game of trial and error, in search for what really works. We investigate by looking up real life, everyday women who understand what it’s like to face the daily struggles. We speak to some of Hong Kong’s leading ladies, who manage successful careers, enjoy a balanced lifestyle, all the while constantly wearing that glow on their face that we all yearn for. How do they do it? We ask eyewear founder and designer Rene Chu of REVÉ by RENÉ and model turned chef Esther Sham.
“I often travel for work, therefore I feel my skincare regimen is more important than makeup. [I use] Fresh’s Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence as it protects the skin against airborne pollutants; and it also has a hint of black tea aromas.”
The girl on the go loves being outdoors and soaking up sun (meanwhile sporting the latest sunglasses from her collection). Our environment itself is damaging to the skin because of the quality of air and humidity in Hong Kong. The core ingredient of the essence by Fresh being kombucha fermented black tea, combats pollution and free radicals while detoxifying the skin — a much needed element for metro Hong Kong.
“If time permits, I like to enjoy a full day of beauty services at the spa. As you can imagine, I regard skincare as a way of enjoying life. When choosing a product, its texture, natural scent and ingredients are also important. The Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence is easy to absorb, and this one step [in my routine] can have multiple benefits to the skin. I also love the faint black tea fragrance.”
Rather to be enjoyed than considered a chore, your daily routine should soothe and comfort. Esther emphasises is on the ingredients of a product, which comes as no surprise, and her love for Fresh’s signature essence. With Mandarin peel extract, Kigelia Africana fruit extract, and hyaluronic acid; elasticity is enhanced, the skin is rejuvenated and deeply hydrated.
Take a break from Instagram filters and photoshop to try out what really works.
