Naomi Watanabe

“I believe my skin type is dry, therefore I place special emphasis on moisturisation care. My makeup tends to smudge easily whenever I perspire so I apply lighter skincare in the mornings. My favorite morning and night skincare routine is a two-step approach: first, apply skin lotion, followed by a small amount of serum-type lotion. I also make it a point to apply moisturising skincare immediately whenever I feel any dryness instead of leaving it till later, hence my moisturising routine is light and frequent.”
“If I feel that my skin condition is not at its best, or it’s starting to feel rough, I will apply more skin lotion. This method also helps in hiding blemishes that makeup does not cover adequately.”

Kasumi Arimura

“I have combination skin and that’s why I apply skin lotion a few times, in a hand pressing motion. After applying the skin lotion, I use the same pressing method to gently apply serum and/or milk lotion. This is my daily skincare routine. I appreciate the light texture of the serum lotion and like how it keeps my skin feeling smooth and well-moisturised.”
“I perspire easily during summer so sebum secretion increases. In order to minimise the amount of sebum, I adopt proper nutritional and dieting habits to ensure a balanced diet. In the drier winter season, I drink lots of water and apply serum oil as an additional step in my daily and nightly skincare routine. Furthermore, I always carry skin lotion with me so that I can moisturise whenever my skin feels dry or dehydrated.”
