Romy’s Beauty and Self-Care Wisdom
Romy’s current skin care routine takes a more minimalistic approach in comparison to the K-pop star skin care routine she tried on our IGTV We Tried series. She follows a 6-step routine that includes a double cleanse, toner, hydrating essence, serum, eye cream and moisturizer.
During the day, Romy prefers a lightweight yet refreshing serum containing Vitamin C or niacinamide to help combat dark spots and hyperpigmentation for revitalized skin.
In the evening, she opts for a hyaluronic acid or anti-aging serum to repair, nourish and smooth skin.
Before popping to bed, Romy attends to her evening skin care routine. On her bedside table she keeps a phone charger, lip balm and hand cream. Romy also lights a candle to help her relax and unwind for sleep.
For a beauty content creator like Romy, self-care is all about looking after your mental and physical health. She loves to go for a run to purge away stress and stimulate creativity. She also recommends a pampering bubble bath to relax the senses.
Romy can spend hours doing her self-care routine every Sunday. She’ll light a scented candle, put on a sheet mask and then simply relax. After the mask sesh, she gives herself a gentle facial massage using a guasha and nourishing face oil.
Romy’s best-kept beauty secret − a tip from her mother − is to never ever pick or pop a pimple. Despite her constant battle with hormonal acne, she’s stood by this rule and, as a result, there are no acne scars on her skin. During a breakout, she uses gentle and hydrating skin care and spot treatments to alleviate some of the inflammation.
If you need to conceal an inflamed pimple, Romy recommends pimple patches. She’s a longtime fan of COSRX’s Acne Pimple Master Patch, which she’s been using for years. Her ultimate tip is to apply the pimple patch only when the spot is on the verge of popping.
What would you bring if you were stranded on a deserted island for a week? Romy would bring her essential skin care to keep her mind and skin calm, including a cleanser, moisturizer and, most importantly, SPF.
As a travel enthusiast, Romy never skimps on taking care of her skin during long-haul flights. Her go-to on-flight essentials to prevent jet-lagged skin include a mega-hydrating sheet mask and a ceramide serum or moisturizer. Post-flight, she prefers a hydrogel mask to restore moisture in skin.
On her beauty account, Romy shares honest reviews and personal skin care experiences in hopes of helping those who struggle with similar skin care issues. Her advice for aspiring content creators is to be authentic. From experience, Romy has learned that going through trial and error is an important part of the process, allowing her to discover, refine and improve her content gradually. The learning curve is all part of the journey!
