One's a doctor and the other an entrepreneur. It's no surprise that they don't compromise on performance, especially when it comes to their beauty routines.

Society faces Loh May-Han and Marilyn Lum muse on their work, lives, and beauty routines. They discover that unlocking true skin radiance is a breeze with Clé de Peau Beauté’s newly reformulated Le Sérum.

Everyone wants flawless, radiant skin. But the busy modern woman doesn’t have the time to spend hours on her skin every day. So skincare just has to do more with less. Clé de Peau Beauté’s Radiance Trio, comprising Le Sérum, La Crème and the Intensive Eye Contour Cream, promises to keep your skin glowing no matter how busy your life is. 

The reformulated Le Sérum is particularly powerful. It is based on Clé de Peau Beauté’s intuitive skin theory, the discovery that the skin can distinguish between similar skincare components and selectively absorb the ingredients it finds most beneficial. Le Sérum’s Essential Prime Complex delivers ingredients that your skin needs the most to diminish signs of ageing, and boosts the absorption of subsequent skincare products, allowing you to maximise the efficiency of your skincare routine.

What does a day in your life look like?
Loh May-Han (LMH) Every day is different. Being a doctor is more than just clinical work these days. Commitments such as education, research and administration occupy about a third of my day. Evenings tend to belong to me and I can dictate my schedule with more certainty. It’s all about working hard and playing hard. I live every moment to its fullest and cherish every day.

What is your favourite Clé de Peau Beauté product?
LMH Clé de Peau Beauté earned my trust because its products work harmoniously with my skin. Long hours, especially 24hour shifts in the operating theatre, mean constant exposure to airconditioning and harsh lights that take their toll on my skin. But with regular use of the Clé de Peau Beauté skincare range, my skin is more resilient against environmental stressors. The Intensive Eye Contour Cream works wonders for the delicate skin around the eyes! I like that Le Sérum is quickly absorbed, and makes my skin feel soft and supple, as if it’s veiled by an extremely thin layer of satin.

What is your beauty routine like?
LMH As a full-time doctor, my routine is dependent on the tempo of the day. For normal work days, efficient routines—regular maintenance with simple cleansing, toning and moisturising—do nicely to get me through the day. Weekends are more indulgent and when I am able to take more time to nourish my skin with masks and spa sessions!

Marilyn Lum

Marilyn Lum, entrepreneur

You manage a few businesses and social enterprise Crib; you are also a lecturer and a mother of two. How do you manage it all?
Marilyn Lum (ML) 
It’s all about prioritising well and being efficient in time management. I also try to surround myself with the best people, products and services. This philosophy has been crucial in helping me be effective in achieving my goals. This is also the reason why I only use Clé de Peau Beauté products.

What is your favourite Clé de Peau Beauté product? 
ML My absolute favourite Clé de Peau Beauté product is the amazing La Crème. I apply it every night before I rest as part of my beauty routine. When I wake up, my skin looks radiant and refreshed. I also like Le Sérum for its lightweight, smooth texture. I use it in the morning and evening.

What does your day usually consist of?
ML In the morning, I meditate and do Pilates, along with some stretches. I feel this helps me start the day with a balanced mind and body. When I am not lecturing, my days comprise mostly of meetings for Crib and my other companies, and spending time with my sons. It’s usually something simple like a walk to the Singapore Botanic Gardens. My evenings are spent attending online webinars and discussions on research topics with faculty members or putting up papers for my doctoral studies.

What is your beauty routine like? 
ML It’s pretty straightforward. I follow the three pillars of skincare: cleanse, tone and hydrate. When I can spare the time, I always pamper my skin with the Clé de Peau Beauté Intensive Brightening Mask—it revitalises my skin and helps me relax after a long day at work.
