Q1: What are you most inspired by; what keeps your energy going in the fashion, beauty and design world?
I can find inspiration everywhere but I find the most inspiration while traveling.
Q2: What role does art and design play in your life both professionally and personally?
I grew up in a creative environment — my mom is an artist and my dad has a background in architecture. Design is much more than making something look aesthetically pleasing, it can be someone's way of life. I don’t think I would be where I am today if I didn’t have art and design in my life.
Q3: What is your skincare routine like? Any city-wise tips for our readers?
In the mornings I start by cleansing my skin, followed by toner, essence, and lastly a moisturizer with a high SPF (don’t forget your neck!). At night it’s a little more complicated — I try to follow the Korean 10 step skin care routine. If I’m wearing make-up I use an oil cleanser, followed by a water based cleanser to remove any residue. The next step would be to exfoliate, but I only do this 1-2 times a week. After cleansing I use toner, essence or a serum, and finish off with my moisturizer. If I have time, I do a sheet mask before I moisturize and skip the essence and serum.
Q4: What is the story behind Andy Heart & your Instagram, and what keeps you interested in the digital and design community?
Andy Heart was a creative outlet I began while working in the design field. I needed a space to document my travels, fashion, and all things that inspired me. My talented and creative colleagues always keep me interested in the design community.
Q5: Could you tell us a bit about your most favorite city and why you’re fond of it in particular?
My favorite city is Los Angeles. — I love the food, the people, and the weather.
Q6: What are your favorite Dr.Jart products and why?
My skin type is normal to dry so I love the Water Fuse line — it’s natural and it gives my sensitive skin the moisture it needs. The Water-Max Sleeping Mask works well when I use it a few times a week — my skin always feels quenched in the morning after using it. The products I use most often are the Dr. Jart+ sheet masks, I love how there’s a mask for everything. My top three (if I had to pick!) are Brightening Infusion, Water-full Hydrogel, and the Water Replenishment Sheet masks.
