Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh is the latest celebrity to be featured in Vogue's beauty regime video.

Stars such as Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore and Mindy Kaling have appeared in these videos highlighting their daily skincare routine and beauty tips as they get ready for the day.

In the eight-minute video, Yeoh said that it was her mother who taught her how to take care of her skin.

“My earliest memory of taking care of my skin is seeing my mum do this every day – morning and night. She does all these incredible things where she’s, like, doing martial arts on her face," she told Vogue.

"She's 83 and she looks stunning,” Yeoh complimented her mum, Datin Janet Yeoh.

Speaking of martial arts, Yeoh said that while she is getting ready in the morning, she works out as well. Kill two birds with one stone, so it seems.

“Normally when I’m doing all this (massaging her face), I’m doing my squats. Remember, you can do your kicks, you can do your stretches, while you are also waking up,” the Oscar winner said.

When it comes to foundation, the 61-year-old actress believes that less is more.

“One thing I’ve learned is, when you have makeup that’s too thick, it tends to highlight the creases,” The Brothers Sun star said.

Another advice that Mama Yeoh passed down to her is to pluck her own brows.

"One thing my mum always taught me was, don’t let anybody pluck your eyebrows because they just don't grow back properly. I am quite blessed with very natural (brows). I try not to overpluck it. I just leave it the way it is," she said.

But the best advice she can share, Yeoh said, is just to be true to yourself.

“Always be who you are ... Eventually, who you are will always come shining through. The most important thing for me is to be able to find and fine-tune, a nicer me, a kinder me.”
