Getting Unready With: Shikin Gomez

Model and AsNTM finalist Shikin Gomez shows how skincare can be quick yet efficient for when you’re on-the-go. Watch and win Sephora products worth RM1,000!

Less than a week after her return from a gig in Mumbai, model and Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 finalist Shikin Gomez still looks as radiant as she does on runways – even minus the makeup. One can’t blame us for feeling a little envious at how her skin looks so healthy despite her jet-setting lifestyle.

“I try to use products that give me extra hydration, especially when I’m travelling,” she explains. “It’s also important to use a really hydrating moisturiser at night if you sleep in an air-conditioned room like me.”

Although it’s part of her job to wear makeup throughout the day (sometimes even having to remove and reapply different makeup looks for different engagements), her evening skincare routine is kept simple. She sticks with the basics: makeup remover, cleanser (double cleansing for good measure!), toner, moisturiser, lip scrub and lip balm; occasionally adding serum.

What’s her lazy girl’s trick to a quick skincare routine when she wants to hit the sack early?

“I always use two cotton pads for all my makeup removal steps (including toner) so it’s fast. Two hands, two times faster – that’s my hack,” she says with a hearty laugh.

Watch how she gets unready after hours in the video above.
