4 Ways Fillers Can Enhance Your Face

Sink, sag and wrinkle. That’s what the natural aging process does to our faces. We lose about 10% of fat in our face at the age of 35, and up to about 10% goes again every decade after that. Not that women don’t like a sharper, chiseled visage, but losing fat around the eyes, cheeks, mouth, forehead – youthful volume essentially, can make one look old and haggard. A convenient, effective (and safe) way to bypass surgery to look younger today is the injectable hyaluronic acid filler. These are made of biodegradable hyaluronic acid molecules which the body breaks down naturally over months to years (depending on the type of filler used) so it is not permanent. So a good way to look at these is there is always room for freshening up or improving the appearance as our skin and structure changes ever so gradually over the years. So for those who feel they need to put some volume back to their faces, we’ve put together 4 ways fillers Continue Reading

These Are The Reasons Why Your Pigmentation Is Not Getting Better

You may not have wrinkles, but you feel like you are starting to age. Chances are, it’s the uneven skin tone that you are worrying about. We are talking about bigger, darker patches rather than small freckles. If you are not sure what you need to do to banish pesky pigmentation once and for all, we’ve got you covered.   TIP #1 AVOID SUN OVER-EXPOSURE These aging dark spots are frequently caused by sun exposure – specifically the UVA “silent” rays which do not cause any skin burns, but sneakily penetrate deep into your skin and stimulates your skin’s normal pigment cells to produce more pigment (melanin). These are responsible for your tan, and also the unwanted, uneven patches of darker skin. These spots do not actually appear overnight, but take years to show. In younger women, this, together with hormonal triggers can cause patchy pigmentation known as melasma which is notoriously difficult to treat. So avoid sun over-exposure and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen such as Umbrella to ensure your Continue Reading

THESE ARE THE REASONS WHY YOUR SKIN IS NOT GLOWING

We’ve identified the saboteurs standing between your skin and that ineffable radiance. The lit-from-within glow is not restricted to supermodels and celebrities only – find out how you can amp up your skin’s wattage.   #1 SABOTEUR – DEAD SKIN CELLS Radiant skin reflects light, but more often than not, we are not doing enough to let this property shine. Millions of skin cells are shed daily, and a large proportion of these do not fall off quickly enough and masks your skin with a dull, grayish tone. Getting rid of this pesky layer actively will improve your glow factor immediately. Try a regular facial scrub such as the biphasic Crystal Healing Oxygenating Scrub twice a week, or try a hydrating serum with chemical exfoliating properties, such as Sleep Mode, which contains glycolic acid. Once or twice a month, try a cleansing ritual such as SW1 Spa’s ultrasonic cleansing, which uses ultrasonic wave motion to get rid of surface skin cells as well as impurities.   #2 SABOTEUR – FILTH Continue Reading

Caring for your skin is a wonderful habit. Unfortunately not all of us have that kind of cash on hand (nor time and patience) to maintain a 10 or 11 step skincare routine.

CRYSTAL HEALING OXYGENATED FACIAL SCRUB Every facial therapist cleanses, exfoliates and then masks. Why should a facial-in-a-jar be any different?
