For Men: SHR Underarm Hair Removal

It used to be that hair removal is only favourable more by women. Chances are, unless you’re a bodybuilder, performer or swimmer, you’ll unlikely be unbothered by your natural body hair. Unfortunately, the humid weather in Singapore isn’t going to do much justice to your underarm hair - all the ‘blood, sweat and tears’ end up accumulating and the last thing you want is to be told that you smell funny.

Here’s the good news, guys. Not so anymore, experts report that more and more men are opting for the same grooming rights as women - including smooth body skin. If you’ve considered the best way to get rid of underarm hair, you’re not alone. We’ve been receiving numerous questions from our male customers about underarm hair removal, so here’s some tips to better understand about the whole process. Be it for comfort, improving sports performance or just your personal hygiene preference, you’ll be sure to find a fit.

First of all, what is SHR Hair Removal? SHR stands for Super Hair Removal which permanently destroys hair follicles by using low fluence repetitive laser pulses targeting the susceptible hair follicles while at the same time providing concurrent contact cooling, resulting in painless and permanent hair removal. Because of the gradual accumulation of the energy into the skin, there is less trauma and irritation caused - making it ideal and suitable for everyone, regardless of skin tone and even for customers with sensitive skin.

How to take care of your skin during pregnancy

Ah, pregnancy. One of the most beautiful things in life. While it is a piece of great news, it’s the time of your life to be diligent in taking the best care of yourself. During pregnancy, your body and skin changes drastically due to the hormonal roller coaster.

The surge of female hormones can lead to effects on your skin pigments, blood vessels, glands, and even your immune system. Melasma, acne, stretch marks, dry skin and many more - your skin goes through all kinds of crazy changes. We asked our Managing Director - Evonne for some facial and skincare tips during pregnancy.

How to Give Your Skin a Hassle-free Detox

“Detox” has been one of the trendiest buzzwords of recent years. You might have tried a handful of diet detoxes with juice cleanses and meal plans after extra indulgent days. Or maybe you drank detox tea to get rid of excess bloat before a big event (where you’ll potentially be in a tight dress). But what about a detox for the biggest organ of your body?
No matter what you think about the trending buzzword, you can’t deny there are days when your skin could use a detox. Some days, our skin looks extra dull or breaking out, and we know it’s because we slept in our makeup, ate too much bad food, neglected our skin after beach days, or, god forbid, all of the above. If any other part of your body isn’t functioning properly, from your gut (too much junk food) to your brain (too much stress), it can show up on your skin because your pores get clogged up when trying to compensate for the other incorrectly functioning systems in your body.

An Open Letter from Us

The Covid-19 pandemic has indeed had a colossal impact on almost every industry in Singapore. Whether that be unprecedented pressure on the health services, start-ups having to very sadly pull their shutters or supermarkets experiencing a crazy mad rush of Singaporeans stocking up on essentials (*ehem* toilet papers), it follows that the beauty and wellness industry is also on the detrimental fronts of the crisis’s effect.
