The Lineup is a monthly series where we’re giving you an inside peek at the beauty lineups of cool fashion people, editors, makeup artists, hairstylists, and estheticians—all the people we trust the most. Get ready for a behind-the-scenes look at all the can’t-live-without products that make their worlds go 'round.

We're living in unprecedented times right now, and if there's anything I've learned over the last seven months, it's that a little TLC goes a long way. Heck, even just trying a new product is a welcome distraction from all the chaos happening in the world right now. So I was happy to hear that Alicia Yoon, the founder of everyone's favorite Korean beauty e-commerce site Peach & Lily, is on the same page as me.

"Skincare doesn’t need to be a chore, but it can be a moment of soothing self-care," says Yoon. "It's nice to start and end the day by spending time connecting with myself in quiet and peace. I make sure products are displayed nicely, easy to reach, clean, effective, sensorial, and delightful."

Clean, effective, and delightful is exactly what you'll find on Peach & Lily. Yoon struggled with severe eczema flare-ups and super dry, sensitive skin growing up, so she became passionate about helping others transform their skin after she learned how to manage her own during esthetician school. This passion is what led her to launch Peach & Lily, where she's able to curate products methodically while educating customers on ways to improve their skin using nontoxic ingredients. But products aren't everything. In fact, Yoon swears by facial yoga and has been doing it for twenty years. "Say 'A, E, I, O, U' in a super exaggerated way to work out all the surrounding muscles. Repeat five times a day and really feel the stretch and flexing of the muscles."

Well, if Yoon does facial yoga, I'm going to do facial yoga. Meanwhile, I'm also going to enjoy the lineup of her must-have products because I assure you my self-care routine will improve because of it (and so will yours).

Up next, I went from being a model to a celeb esthetician—here's my recipe for good skin.
