Mother’s Day is approaching and one of the best ways you can gift a busy mama is a little time to pamper themselves. Even then, being a mother of an inquisitive toddler and an energetic 3 year-old preschooler, I have no time to spare even if someone were to buy me a lovely and well-intended 2 or 3 hours of spa-time. What I need is a dash to a place for a guilt- and fuss-free treatment and have it done and dusted in less than 60 minutes!
Busy mamas may not have time for much besides their children, but that’s exactly why they are one of the most savvy about the best express treatments in town. We are ardent fans of the SW1 Clinic, helmed by Dr Low Chai Ling, Dr Kenneth Lee and plastic surgeon Dr Tan Ying Chien. Here are some great and practical treatments mothers can get in 60 minutes and under; from a body sculpting to skin tightening treatments and 30 minute flash facials!
