Since joining the entertainment industry in 2003 after participating in the Miss Hong Kong pageant, Selena Li’s (李詩韻) journey was not always a happy one as she was plagued by, among other things, bad luck in her past relationships.
However, it looks like things are looking up for the 32-year-old who has since learnt the key to happiness, according to a Popular Asians report.
Even with just minimal makeup, Selena’s skin glowed with radiance. Believing that beauty and health are inseparable, Selena feels that the much-coveted inner glow can only be obtained through a healthy lifestyle rather than skincare and facials.
She shared that she often researches on beauty tips online. "If you consume unhealthy food every day, it will not only affect your health, but the effects will also show on your skin.
"So every morning, I will drink a glass of blended juice that is made up of celery, cucumber, bitter melon and green apples. It helps to clear my digestive system and clear my body of toxins", she revealed.
Selena also tries to avoid red meat as well as coffee, eating more vegetables and fruits. Selena also thinks that exercise is not only good for the body, it is also good for one’s mentality.
While she has a morning routine to keep her skin in tip-top condition, she also has a nightly ritual to maintain her inner peace.
Every night, Selena will write down at least ten things that have made her happy for the day in a journal. No matter how small each item is, the point is for Selena to look back at her day positively.
"Every time after I finish [the list], I will feel more relaxed. I understand that every situation has a good and bad side to it, and it is not necessary to always think of the bad.”
