Often, our necks are overlooked in skincare routines, but nurturing this delicate canvas can prove to be an exquisite anti-ageing measure.

Ji-ah’s secret? Using an intensive night cream on her neck to stave off wrinkles.

The skin on your neck is exceptionally delicate. So, the next time you apply your nightly moisturiser, don’t forget to extend its benefits to your neck.

Before applying neck cream, warm some product in your palms. Then, gently massage it in small circular motions and work your way outwards, ensuring you reach behind your jawline. This method effectively reduces the appearance of necklines and prevents the formation of new fine lines.

Ji-ah’s recommended night cream:

In one of her YouTube videos, Ji-ah attests to this product’s excellence, having gone through at least four bottles. She highlights how this night cream consistently leaves her with radiant, glowing skin each morning.

Weyergrans’s High Care Timeless Intensive Care retails for S$280 at Weyergrans online and Shopee.

Tip 2: Use a Sheet Mask 2 to 3 Times a Week

Regardless of your skin type, sheet masks can revolutionise your skincare journey, offering benefits that range from hydration and smoothing to skin tone evening and radiant rejuvenation.

After cleansing and applying toner, delicately lay the sheet mask over your face, ensuring it fits snugly to the contours of your face. Leave the mask on for the recommended duration – typically, you can remove it when it starts to feel dry.

Your skin will appear brighter, more luminous, and refreshed as it absorbs the mask’s nourishing essence!

Ji-ah’s recommended sheet masks:


The Mediheal Hyalu Moist Essence Mask is a gentle and hydrating sheet mask containing five hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturise your skin. This anti-ageing mask helps your skin retain water and maintain the right oil and moisture balance.

Tip 3: Do Not Touch Your Face Unless You’re Doing Skincare

If you’re yearning for the coveted glass-skin appearance, remember this simple yet powerful advice from Ji-ah: avoid touching your face with your hands unless you’re applying skincare.

The reason is straightforward – touching your face can transfer dirt, oil, and bacteria from your hands to your skin, which can lead to clogged pores and unsightly breakouts.

So, make it a daily practice to refrain from touching your face and always cleanse your hands before diving into your skincare routine.

Tip 4: Lift Your Lashes With a Lighter

Ji-ah is renowned for her exquisite makeup looks that complement her features perfectly. Here, we focus on her standout feature – her captivating eyes and adorned lashes that remain elegantly curled.

Her secret? Using a lighter on your eyelash curler to give your lashes a stunning lift before applying mascara.

Achieving her doll-like lashes is surprisingly simple! Gently warm the lash curler with a lighter three times before curling your lashes. Use a spooly to fan out each lash for even distribution.
