Busy women with not a second of extra time left in their busy schedules take note: this does not mean you should neglect your face and body.

With a little direction from the founder of SW1 Clinic, Dr Low Chai Ling, we find out what works and what don’t so you don’t have to play the guessing game. Being a mother of two grown teens herself, Dr Low is also author of the post-pregnancy beauty bible In Full Bloom, so we are glad to listen to her advice when it comes to curating the beauty agendas of busy mamas.
