Feature Perfect: Feng Shui Beauty Tips

The Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui centers around harmonizing the elements of an environment to invite balance, happiness and good luck. While Feng Shui is best known for its use in architecture and decor, ancient Chinese geomancy also suggests that the same principles can be applied to our faces to attract great fortune. Eastern masters of face reading or Mian Xiang believes that the placement, shape and size of a person’s facial “mountains and rivers” carry a wealth of information and predictions about their character and life’s fortune. By highlighting your lucky facial features and correcting the “imbalanced” aspects, you can look your best and boost positive chi energy into your life. Here are 6 key attributes of a lucky prosperous face to emulate for a fabulous new year ahead.   KEEP YOUR SKIN & FUTURE CLEAR & UNBLEMISHED It is believed that those with a smooth and clear complexion will find that their life goes on more smoothly as well.

Think Before You Ink: Tattoo Regret In The Eyes Of A Doctor

Tattoos may seem like a good idea in the moment, but sometimes, tattoos are inked on impulse. We spoke to Dr Kenneth Lee, founder of the SW1 Clinic (who also co- founded The Sloane Clinic in 2003) about tattoo regret.   SKINMAG: Do you often see patients who have tattoo regret? Dr Kenneth Lee: Yes, I have seen quite a few over the last decade. They range from pretty young to working professionals who regretted the tattoos they got in their younger years, because the tattoos didn’t fit their lifestyle anymore. The tattoos range from professional, self-inked, very new, old, black tattoos and multi-coloured ones.   SKINMAG: What kind of tattoos do people normally regret? Dr Kenneth Lee: Usually people regret tattoos that label them, such as gang tattoos. I have had to help a young man remove massive yakuza style tattoos on his chest, back and both legs because he wanted to become a policeman. Sometimes people remove easily visible tattoos such as those on the fingers and wrists Continue Reading

Cool Shaping: Ice Stubborn Fat Away Permanently

I am not fat, but I have always had issues with my not-so-flat belly. In my mind, there are 3 types of bellies in the world. The first of two extremes being the rock hard, washboard beaten abs, and the other being the super soft Winnie The Poo pooch. But the most punished of all abs would have to be my kind of abs – the neither fat-nor-nothing kind of abs. The plague of the not-so-flat belly is very real. You see, if I had the abs of Victoria Secret babe Karlie Kloss, or Lily Aldrige, I would be able to pick any bodycon favourite and carry it off with style and with confidence. On the other hand, if I were Homer Simpson, wearing baggy clothes all the time would not draw strange looks because that is the norm for fat people – there is nothing to see. Dealing with Problem Fat In the land of nowhere, most people are generally both skinny and fat. They are skinny or slim Continue Reading
