  • Skincare in the skies

    Have you ever been on a long flight and dreaded the way you looked when you landed? Indeed, air travel tends to take its toll on the skin because of the dry pressurized cabin air which causes skin to be dull and rough. Explaining the science of it, aesthetician Renée Rouleau says that low humidity leads air to replenish moisture “by pulling it from anything nearby — your skin included." Thus dry complexions get worse while oily skin become greasier to make up for the loss of moisture. The good thing is that putting up a good skincare strategy when you’re flying high in the sky is quite easy!

  • Shattering skincare myths

    Myths are widely held ideas or practices that have no scientific or empirical basis and are usually based on traditional accounts passed down from earlier generations. Skincare has its own treasure trove of interesting narratives from fabled efficacies of certain flowers and plants, to the dos and don’ts of nurturing youthful and beautiful skin. For example, primrose oil has long been touted as a remedy for eczema although results of studies to date have been inconclusive. Below are several other common skincare misconceptions which you may want to rethink if they are on your list.

  • Treat your skin right

    There’s no shortage of information out there if you’re looking for help to take good care of your skin. But how do you decide which one to follow? To be sure, there is no one-solution-solves-all type of product in the market. There are several points to consider in your quest for the right skincare. The most important thing to know is your skin type so you’ll know what to look out for in your research. The five common skin types are: normal, sensitive, dry, oily and combination. You can find out your skin type by blotting a clean tissue on your face in the morning.

  • Daily skincare made easy

    No matter how busy you are, when it comes to skincare, the price of neglect can be more painful than the demands of discipline and diligence. If you want skin that glows with a healthy radiance and remains soft and smooth, you need to adopt a few daily easy-to-do skincare habits which can go a long way in maintaining healthy and youthful skin. Washing your face in the morning is the most basic routine and a very important one, say cosmetic dermatologists. Firstly, your facial skin may accumulate environmental irritants such as dust and mold from the air conditioner, or dead skin cells and allergens on your pillowcase.

  • Get back the glow - exfoliate!

    Did you know that we lose around 30,000-40,000 dead skin cells every moment of the day? Fortunately, the skin does not shed off completely due to the continuous formation of fresh skin cells by the epidermis (skin’s outermost layer). It takes between 15 days and a month for the new cells to surface and replace the dead ones. Unlike children whose skin renews itself continuously, adults’ skin cells shed and rejuvenate at a slower pace. The result: dull patches on your skin, enlarged pores, risk of acne breakouts, blackheads, jaded look and more rapid visible aging. So how do you claim back the soft and glowing skin?
