Though it's true that your skincare routine should evolve as you age, it doesn't mean that you need to have a complicated one. Take it from Liz Uy—who you probably thought had a 10-step regimen because of the way her skin glows. In reality though, she has quite a streamlined one. She believes that all you really need, regardless of your age, are products that do all the work for you.
Ahead, the stylist takes Preview through her favorite products and everything she does for a youthful complexion:
How has your skincare changed through the years?
"It’s been same ever since. Simple routine. Wash and chug the bottle without guilt!"
Have you always been this diligent with your routine?
"Yes. I never sleep with makeup on (okay, maybe I did once) and never without moisturizer. I have dry skin so I make sure my skin is always hydrated."
What are your current main skin concerns?
"My under eye area and just preventive [care]."
What are your go-to skincare products?
1. La Mer The Treatment Lotion
"It helps with prepping my skin and gives an instant rush of hydration."
LA MER The Treatment Lotion, P7700, Rustan's
2. La Mer The Renewal Oil
"It hydrates, softens, and gives you that glow. It's the perfect on-the-go skincare product as it's multi-functional. I use it as a serum or sometimes just on its own as a moisturizer. It's a great natural highlighter, too."
LA MER The Renewal Oil, P7300-13,800, Rustan's
3. La Mer The Eye Concentrate
"This is great for diminishing dark circles and lines."
LA MER The Eye Concentrate, P12,500, Rustan's
4. La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Lotion
"With the pump feature, it's great for travel. It's quick absorbing but still gives lasting moisture. "
LA MER The Moisturizing Soft Lotion, P16, 200, Rustan's
5. La Mer The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream
"I love this lightweight gel cream. It gives off a refreshing feel, perfect for Manila weather."
LA MER The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream, P10,600 for 30ml, Rustan's
What are some extra products that you tend to use?
"I bring La Mer's mist around with me to refresh, and the body oil because it's not sticky and gives you this sheen that makes you look like your skin is healthy and glowing."
LA MER The Mist, price unavailable; The Glowing Body Oil, price unavailable, Rustan's Makati
If you could only keep three products in your skincare routine, what would you keep?
"The Eye Concentrate, Renewal Oil, and Moisturizing Lotion."
Aside from skincare products, what do you swear by for maintaining youthful-looking skin?
"Water, sleep, exercise, eating healthy, facials—am I boring you?"
Is there anything you avoid doing or using for the sake of your skin?
"Cigarettes and alcohol (just occasionally). We look and feel young without it! Okay, I'm officially a boring person!"
