Jesseca Liu is a familiar face in the local TV scene, now, the celebrity bears a new identity – as Estetica’s first-ever brand ambassador. Daily Vanity caught up with her over email amidst her busy schedule to find out what she has been up to and to get her to share her beauty secrets:
Daily Vanity (DV): What are some of your upcoming projects in the next few months?
Jesseca Liu (JL): Recently, I challenged myself by co-writing the script and did the production for the drama series “Who Killed The Lead”, which will premiere from 5 May onwards, every Monday and Wednesday on Xinmsn and on Channel U, starting from 25 May on every Sunday.
My next project is a Channel 8 drama series “Blessings”. Filming has already started and it will keep me occupied for the coming months. Blessings is a drama about “Xiji”, a traditional Teochew confectionary that was established in the 1940s, and I play She Mei Ren, the owner of two businesses (a nail palour shop and western cake confectionary shop) who is a career-oriented person with a strong character. I act alongside with Shaun Chen and have many scenes with him. This drama will air on Channel 8 from 23 July.
DV: Your schedule definitely sounds crazy. What are your beauty secrets to looking radiant despite a busy work schedule?
JL: Since production for “Blessings” started, my schedule has been really tight. However, it is not an excuse to not take care of myself. I use Estetica’s ést.lab SunShield SPF50 every day, no matter how busy I am.
Throughout my career, countless makeup artists have emphasised to me that sunscreen is the most basic of skincare though I didn’t like using sunscreen regularly in the past because I found most sunscreens too sticky and oily.
Ever since I’ve tried Estetica’s ést.lab SunShield SPF50, I no longer leave home without it! It provides me with perfect coverage and balances my skin tone. Most importantly, it shields me from UV rays, allowing my skin to stay fair and luminous.
I place great emphasis on my diet too. I eat mainly fish and vegetables to maintain my figure and complexion. I also exercise whenever time permits. It is not only about looking good, it is also about being healthy.
DV: What are your favourite treatments and products from Estetica?
There are three treatments and products from Estetica that I can’t do without:
The Estetica Signature Facial is definitely one of them! This facial was developed by the founder of Estetica and can only be performed by Estetica’s qualified senior therapists. It comprises of a 32-step acupressure facial massage, which I find very relaxing. The facial is able to promote blood circulation, detox, and replenish moisture.
My skin feels more supple and radiant after the treatment. This is something I always look forward to after a long day at work.
It’s also not easy to maintain a good figure all the time. But thanks to Estetica, I’m able to maintain a slim physique through their Acoustic Multi-Wave Slim and Tone Therapy. Using advanced technologies, Estetica helps to achieve notable results in the shortest period of time. The results I see: a flatter tummy, and more toned thighs and butt.
Last but not least, I simply must have the ést.lab SunShield SPF50, of course. The sunscreen is white but after application, the shade self-adjusts to match my skin tone! It acts just like a concealer, providing fantastic coverage and is perfect for days when I don’t want apply too much makeup.
DV: What do you like most about Estetica?
JL: What makes Estetica unique is the fact that they are a home-grown brand that provides services and products of international standards.
They place a lot of emphasis on research and technology, as well as staff training. Their staff are friendly and very professional. I find that this makes them really trustworthy and I feel truly at ease whenever I am at Estetica.
Most importantly, Estetica’s treatments and products really work for me, that is why I want to share my personal experience with everyone. In fact I’d recommended Estetica’s treatment and products to many of my friends and they were bought over by the experience!
Moreover, I have always been health-conscious, and I was really excited to know that Estetica and I share the same ideology: to be beautiful in a safe and healthy way. There’s no need to take pills and there’s no downtime for their facial and slimming treatments.
DV: What is your daily skincare regime like?
JL: Everyday, I will cleanse, tone and moisturize my face and eyes. After that, I will apply Estetica’s ést.lab SunShield SPF50. As mentioned previously, sunscreen is the basic building block of skincare. Hence, the ést.lab SunShield SPF50 is my most important skincare product.
Using the ést.lab Sunshield SPF50 is especially important during outdoor filming. It protects my skin from UV rays, and unlike most sunscreens, it doesn’t leave a sticky or oily feeling after applying. Moreover, it can double up as a make up base, so mymakeup stays on better as well! I only apply make up when I am filming, and for days that I am not, I only apply the ést.lab Sunshield SPF50.
At night, I will use a make up remover, followed by cleanser and toner. Before applying my night cream, I will apply Estetica’s ést.lab VitaLift A+ Miracle Lift Serum that is my secret weapon against signs of ageing. I also use Estetica’s ést.lab VitaLift A+ Brillage Mask twice a week to hydrate and brighten my tired skin.
DV: We follow you on Instagram and notice you take great selfies! What tips do you have to looking great in front of a camera – even when you don’t have professionals doing it for you.
JL: I love taking selfies! I feel that it is a way for me to record the different phases of my life.
For great selfies, you definitely must have a decent camera, most mobile phone cameras now should work fine. Other than that, good lighting plays an important part as well. Morning sunlight is actually the best form of lighting, as it makes your face look good and natural.
Ultimately, what makes a selfie look good is the confidence of the individual. So just smile, know your best angles and be natural. It should turn out awesome!
DV: Complete this sentence: Beauty is…
JL: All in your attitude!
In the course of my work, I have met many people who are not immediately “attractive” in the physical sense of the word, but who draw people in on the basis of their confidence and personality.
Having said that, I keep hearing people say things like “Oh, if only I had taken more care of my skin when I was younger” or “if I had only put more sunscreen and moisturisers”; and I think that we have to be more conscious and responsible about ageing and caring for our skin, in the same way that we have become more conscious about how diet, exercise and drinking fluids are essential for our overall health.
So, work on your attitude! For me, I take a more active role with Estetica in maintaining good skin to achieve the most beautiful me!
