Ever wondered why some women look so radiant even without makeup? Is flawless, dewy-looking skin too much to ask for? Trying to get your skin glowing can be a never-ending task, here are 5 ways to get started.
1. DIY HOME MASKS WITH TUMERIC
Tumeric is the secret prized condiment in certain parts of Asia not just for its flavour. Make your own skin whitening face mask with this formula to even out skin tone. Do it once every 2 – 3 days until the natural glow of your skin is restored. Tip: get good quality tumeric and not those made with synthetic colours.
- 2 teaspoons of honey
- 2 teaspoons of milk
- ½ teaspoon of tumeric

2. TRY AN ADENOSINE-ENRICHED ESSENCE
Do you sometimes wish you had Cinderella’s fairy godmother? Well, we found a cosmetic doctor who could called that! The SW1 Shop is the brainchild of the founder of the SW1 Clinic, Dr Low Chai Ling, a brilliant apothecary for most skin needs. Not surprisingly, she has a formula for glow-getters as well. Unicorn Tears cleverly combines retinol which gently exfoliates and accelerates skin renewal with skin whitening tranexamic acid. It also contains adenosine, a beneficial ingredient known for its ability to revitalize skin. Expect clearer skin within 8 to 12 weeks.
3. PEEL YOURSELF PRETTY
Dr Low first came up with the Glamour Peel when she was carrying her first child. With her wealth of professional and personal experience, she worked on a peel formula which would restore glow and banish acne without significant downtime. Glamour Peel combines 3 different peels of various strengths and the doctors at SW1 Clinic will determine the peeling strength according to what you need!

4. BUFF AND LET IT SHINE
Dr Low believes that the best complexions need constant work. That’s why she came up with Gold Flakes, a skin illuminating scrub which buffs the skin surface to ensure vital ingredients from your precious skincare products are absorbed thoroughly. But Gold Flakes is not just the usual facial scrub. It contains champagne and pearl extracts as well as Vitamins A, C, and E to brighten and even out skin tone.

5. FULL BLOOM
Using a mix of the SW1 Spa and Clinic elements, SW1’s Full Bloom Program is designed to restore skin from drab to divine! Incorporating aqua.dermabrasion which uses a dual-acting vortex tip that sucks out impurities from your pores and infuses alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) into them at the same time, expect baby smooth, shiny skin right after. But that’s the the prelude of each of the six sessions. The doctor then performs Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Luminous Therapy. IPL machines emit powerful light beams which reduces excess pigmentation, resulting in an instantly brighter and more homogeneous skin tone. As if that wasn’t enough, you are treated to either a Pearl Éclat mask which gives your skin an almost pearlescent sheen (I am not exaggerating!) or their in-house water infusion facial wrap for intense hydration.
Seeing is believing for this one.
