Prep your skin for the new year with this skincare must-haves from homegrown brand NP Skincare
In partnership with NP Skincare
Scouring the department store beauty aisle for the right skincare can feel like finding a needle in a haystack — options are overwhelming, and it’s hard to pinpoint the right product for your skin’s specific needs. It’s precisely this frustration that led Belle Lim, founder of homegrown skincare brand NP Skincare, to launch her own product line in 2016.
Lim, who admitted to spending her teenage years struggling with low self-esteem and feeling self-conscious about her sensitive skin, wanted to create a line of high-quality skincare products that she can vouch for. As its name suggests, NP Skincare (which stands for Natural Plant Skincare), prides itself on using only natural, quality ingredients intended to target individual skin problems. Over the years, the brand has also actively collaborated with renowned Korean aestheticians and adopts the latest science in formulating their products.
With the lunar new year right around the corner, you might be looking for new additions to upgrade your beauty regime. Ahead, we’ve picked out two of their products that you’ll need to keep your skin in top condition in the new year.
For a youthful, dewy glow: The Royale Allure Nectar Youth Oil, RM279
If the idea of using a facial oil puts you off, hear us out. This water-based formula has all the nourishment of an oil but the lightness of a lotion. Made with natural ingredients like honey extract, propolis extract, beetroot extract and royal jelly (a nutrient-rich, gelatinous secretion produced by honey bees known for its beauty-boosting benefits), it’s designed to repair damaged skin cells while leaving a soft and beautiful glow to your skin. Tip: Shake before use, and apply 2 to 3 drops of oil every morning and night to the face and neck before creams.
For dry and irritation-prone skin: The Royal Allure Micro Nourishing Creme, RM379
The Royal Allure Micro Nourish Creme, on the other hand, aids in increasing the production of collagen, boosting skin cell growth and lifting the skin for a more plum and youthful appearance. It’s clinically proven to deliver a burst of hydration to the skin with a single application and is perfect for soothing dry, irritated skin, thanks to a chock-full of ingredients like goat milk extract and apricot flower extract. The cream’s smooth and airy texture is light and absorbs quickly, so you won’t have to worry about greasy skin. Tip: For maximum glow and results, use it every morning and night after applying the Nectar Youth Oil.
