If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 (beauty & wellness) products could you not live without? (You have food and water)
My practical side says definitely sunscreen (which I never go a day without!), a multi-tasking face and body hydrating balm, and toothpaste!
What is your morning beauty routine? evening?
My morning beauty routine is very simple, I rinse my face with water, put on a moisturizer and apply sunscreen before applying HAN Skin Care Cosmetics products. In the evening, my routine is a little more involved but still basic especially compared to the intricate skin care regimen of Korean women. I cleanse, tone, moisturize and use an eye cream and this has worked for me in part because I normally don’t pack on the makeup. On a typical day, I wear my eyeshadow, cheek & lip tint or blush and a lip gloss and in different shades on different days to change up my look and mood.
What 3 tips or tricks can you share for feeling and looking your best?
Get adequate sleep, eat a balanced meal and exercise. It sounds simple enough but I know in reality it’s not always easy to achieve with all the distraction around us and busy schedules we live. However, I’m quickly reminded by the way I feel mentally and physically when I’m lacking in any of these areas, so I work on incorporating these habits to boost my well-being and get me feeling better inside and out.
What’s a trend in the beauty industry you’d like to see grow?
Green beauty becoming mainstream and I think we’re getting there as more research and studies on the risks of toxic beauty products come to light and consumers become more informed. Along the same line, clean and healthy cosmetics not being seen as “alternative” but as the “new normal” for beauty.
What sets HAN apart from other lines on the market today?
We’re different in that we focus on using skin care and antioxidant ingredients in makeup, including some of our pigments which include beetroot, pink carrot, red quinoa, rose and cherry. In addition, we’re relatively affordable considering the ingredients and quality. I like to say we offer prestige quality products without the prestige prices.
