It’s September, and that means it’s the transition into the rainy season in Singapore. Besides indulging in mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn Festival (read till the end for a pleasant surprise), it’s time to change up some of your beauty rituals as we enter the rainier months of the year. Before you set your monsoon beauty routine in place, here’s 5 myths we would like to bust so you make smarter decisions and don’t end up wondering why your skin isn’t looking as ‘glowy’ as before.
HAPPENING FROM 9.9 TO 10.10
Covid-19 might have ruined your overseas plans, but thank god for deals and sales that aren’t stopping anytime soon. If you are looking for a day to pamper yourself or your loved one without breaking the bank, then you definitely can’t miss out on this. For all skin types, concerns, and all ages, here’s a list of facials we have handpicked to provide you with the best price, without compromising on quality.
“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.
Unfortunately, wearing a mask when we are out has been made mandatory by the law in Singapore. In fact, it’s one of the most essential actions taken by the government to slow down the spread of the widespread worldwide pandemic right now.
For some of you, wearing a mask for long hours has caused you to have unwanted skin reactions. This unwanted skin reaction is known as mask acne, or ‘maskne’. It can show up as pimples, redness or irritation around your mouth, cheek, and jaw, where the mask gets in contact with your skin.
It’s Singapore’s independence day again this August 9th! Besides being grateful for the extra day of public holiday and perhaps catching up on sleep, it’s also a great time to give yourself some credits for enduring through a really shaky first half of the year. Be it some self pamper session or exploring Singapore, here is a two-days ‘getaway feel’ we’ve put together for you to enjoy your long weekend to the fullest. Travelling may not be currently feasible, but we can always be tourists in our country. Call us your new travel guide or whatever, you’re welcome.
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.
