ANGELA MAY: It’s What’s Inside That Counts

We love storytellers with good stories to tell, and chefs with good food to give. In May, we collaborated with a woman who generously shared both with us. Celebrity chef Angela May’s tale is the first of two It’s What’s Inside That Counts stories, which also falls under the Origins series (headlined by Kelly Latimer). While Kelly’s story focused on how her English roots inspire her present and future in Singapore, Angela’s prods us to take a closer look — within ourselves.

“I love everything about the experience of eating, from sitting down with friends and chatting over food, and the food itself. I just felt the need to feed people… there’s a deep seated spot in my soul that physically hurts when I see hungry people.”

Hello, Sunshine by Angela May

We’ve always been advocates of not just topical care for healthy and radiant skin, but also being mindful of what we eat and drink so we’re nourishing our skin from within as well. With the opening of Porcelain Origins and the quaint café that nests within it, it was most opportune to work with Angela just in time for summer. Hello, Sunshine is Angela’s take on a fruity summer smoothie — available for a limited time only at Porcelain Origins at $12.90.

The Ingredients

Angela’s recipe incorporates yummies like peach, lychee, aloe vera, and rosemary and bee pollen for garnish. Is it a coincidence that they’re some of our own favourites and are key ingredients in our products and treatments?

Quite a wonderfruit, peaches are rich in antioxidants and combat free radicals and anti-aging effects that the sun brings. It’s also moisture- and glow-giving. Find this ingredient in our Soothe – Hydro Cleanser and  Pure – Botanical Soothing Gel

Our go-to for its ultra-hydrating, soothing and reparative properties. Found in almost all our products from our toners to our exfoliators, serums and moisturisers, including the Soothe – Aloe Recovery Gel (of course!)

Another antioxidant-rich superfruit for the skin. Soak up its goodness with our Hydrocare – Bio-cellulose Mask!

Something similarly bee-inspired is used in our Beespoke™ Honey Facial, a treatment that was specially created for Sofitel City Centre Singapore — bee propolis!

ROSEMARY

Yes, again, rosemary has amazing antioxidants properties. More than that, it’s a great oil-balancer (just in time for summer) and cleans out impurities without drying the skin. Catch a whiff of it in our Soothe – Hydro Cleanser.

“Peaches are such a great summer fruit. They smell amazing, and have a blush that screams summer.”

We do love bare skin and outward confidence as much as we love feeling good…
