A Weekend In The Life Of An Editor | Clozette
We’ve all heard or read about a day in the life of an editor. From sprinting between meetings and events, to rushing to meet never-ending deadlines, every day is always a race against time. It’s never typical, but that’s why I love it – all that action, the adrenaline rush, and staying in the know of the latest launches. A day in the life of an editor is not bad at all.

But in the midst of it comes the pressure and stress. In this society, we are always teetering towards a go-go-go mentality, often misconstruing the meaning of being well. At Clozette, we never scratch the surface and tell you that it’s all about looking good on the outside. We embrace getting active, indulging on skin food, and taking time off for ourselves.

With that, I want to give you a glimpse into my weekend – where I take the opportunity to log off and bring you through what eating well, living well, and being well mean to me. 



I’m an early riser, even during the weekends. Since I have little time to exercise on weekdays, I reserve my weekend mornings for a good workout. I also get to enjoy the quietness before the weekend crowd starts streaming in.

It’s difficult to understand why people often neglect the skin on their body. Whether indoors or outdoors, I make sure I keep my skin nourished and protected from my face right down to my toes. Other than my sunscreen, the Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Lotion has also become an important part of my morning routine. Its fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula ensures that I stay comfortable even when I’m sweating it out.

Created with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal, it helps to lock in moisture and deliver a layer of protection against radicals. Clinically proven to relieve dry skin, it is also non-comedogenic and fragrance-free – a.k.a. this moisturising lotion will not clog pores and interfere with your signature fragrance as you go about your day.


The weekend is a good time to gather with my dearest friends and family, and to take my mind off the hustle and bustle. So, what better way to bond than over food? If there’s one thing that most Singapore cafés do well, it’s their healthy (and delectable, no less!) brunch menu offerings. 



After surrounding myself with people I love all day, I don’t forget to focus on the most important person in my life – me. Light up a relaxing scented candle, draw up a bath, put on a facial mask, or listen to music. This is your time, and my time sees me curling up with a good book in hand, right after I slather on my Aveeno® Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion.

Did you know that oat is a natural skin-protecting active ingredient that can absorb and retain moisture, as well as restore skin’s normal pH level to relieve sensitive skin? Ideal for extra-dry, irritable skin, the Aveeno® Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion features an ACTIVE NATURALS® Triple Oat formula and Shea butter to hydrate and soothe for 24 hours.

While you can simply use the Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Lotion for both day and night, I personally use the Aveeno® Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion in my nighttime routine for more comfort in my air-conditioned room. The result in the morning and for the rest of the day? Healthier-looking skin that is well-moisturised, supple, smooth and incredibly soft to the touch – ready to take on the next 24 hours of my day.

How long has it been since we've embraced the nude lip look? Now, we love the MLBB look as much as the next person, but with the season changing and the trends taking a new turn, we can't help but jump into getting a little bolder when it comes to our pout. 


So if you're feeling a little more adventurous as Spring and Summer approaches, here are some lippie shades you should definitely give a go. 


--------------------------


Grunge in brown

To ease you in with trying on a bold lip, going for deep browns as inspired by 90's grunge should be your starting point. It still gives off that nude lippie vibe but definitely noticeable with its stand out tinge of colour. 


Whimsical in pastel purple

Give spring a major shoutout with this bright shade. Just a close sister to your pinks and reds, if you're in the mood for something less vampy and more fun, this is your next go-to.

Mysterious in grey

Black a little too hardcore for you? Take the shade a notch higher and give grey a try. Go for those with purple undertones if you want a deeper and more rockstar-ish vibe or head towards the true greys with white hints if you're feeling a little more experimental.

Embrace your inner mermaid and let go of inhibitions by swiping on a metallic lip. Stray a bit far from the safe haven of reds by going to the other side of the colour wheel and opting for this vibrant shade of blue, giving your pout that playful and sultry finish with an extra heap of fun.

Why look somewhere else when you can stick to the classic? If you want to play bold but don't want to worry whether a shade will look great on you or not, black is your way to go! Make a statement while looking chic and mysterious by grabbing your own black lippie now. A bonus: it matches everyone's skin tone perfectly.

Our lifestyle and location contribute a lot to our skin's health. Stressors and pollution can already affect our skin's condition badly, but imagine what the harshest of weather conditions can do.


We do our best to take care of our skin, but are our efforts enough to withstand the tests of extreme conditions such as harsh UV rays, dry heat and more? That's exactly what the series “Face the Wild” and “Face the Camera” will reveal.


Four celebrities — award-winning Japanese actress Kasumi Arimura, global fashion icon Chiara Ferragni, celebrated Chinese actress Nini, and South Korean actress Lee Siyoung — took on the challenge of a lifetime. They were taken to destinations where the environments are extreme to test whether their skin, pampered by the world famous SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, can withstand the extreme elements.




Follow the celebrities as they explore the different locations with National Geographic Explorer Hannah Reyes on “Face the Wild,” and find out whether their skin was strong enough to withstand harsh weather conditions as they do beauty shoots with fashion photographers Jesper McIlroy and Kirk Cheung on “Face the Camera.”
