Still Getting Acne As An Adult? Here’s Why

When we were teenagers, acne could be explained away as “growing pains”. So we waited for the big day when we would no longer be kids and the acne would finally be gone. But when acne lingers on into adulthood, skin broken out becomes a haunting – affecting our lives socially (and some say, professionally).   THE UNFAIR REASONS WHY WE GET ADULT ACNE Disappointingly, the state of things now is that no one really understands the difference in the cause of teen versus adult acne. The same factors seem to cause both, such as overactivity of oil glands, acne-causing bacteria, clogged pores and hormonal fluctuations. In adulthood, fluctuating hormones can be caused by stress and inflammation. Here are top tips from aesthetic doctors on how to deal with adult acne.   KEEP IT SIMPLE Sometimes, too much of a good thing can actually be bad. Dealing with acne that never seems to completely go away is frustrating and sometimes we get over zealous with our acne products. A mild, Continue Reading

Eye For Beauty- How To Subtract Years Off Your Eyes

Have you wondered how the most beautiful women in the world maintain their youthful looks? The old adage is indeed true, that the eyes are the windows to one’s soul. Bright eyes are naturally attractive, so keep the years away by taking care of the delicate skin around the eyes with these tips.   Remove Dark Undereye Circles Tear troughs are grooves that sit between the lower eyelid and the cheeks., creating a hollow that makes one look tired. Some tear troughs are genetic but others can be due to aging. Tear trough fillers, often made of hyaluronic acid, can be used to plump up sunken undereye hollows under the eyes, lifting the tear trough to the level of the lower eyelid and the cheek, smoothening the appearance of the area.   Optimize Hydration of Your Lower Eyelids The skin around our eyes is unlike that of the rest of the face. It is thin, so the aging process usually shows the earliest in the eyelids. Unlike dark undereye circles, Continue Reading

Best Skin Smoothers That Will Give You Baby Soft Skin

Looking for a treatment that will give you instagram-ready skin? But there are tonnes of possibilities out there, what should you focus on? If the constant emergence of skincare cult brands are any indication, it is the quest for baby soft, smooth and luminous skin that wins the most hearts.   WHAT CAUSES ROUGH AND DULL SKIN? Environmental pollution and sun damage. These sink deep into skin and cause acne, sun spots and premature skin aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Older women undergo hormonal changes to do with menopause, which contributes to a sharp decline in collagen production and overall loss of skin radiance. Cellular renewal also declines and the buildup of dead skin cells changes the skin’s texture and tone, and an overall lack of moisture results in a rough and dull appearance. Some clever changes to your skincare range will help but at a slower and smaller scale compared to skin treatments. Here are some of the best skin smoothening treatments to check out.   BB Continue Reading

Why Facial Hair Removal Can Improve Your Skin

We may not like to hear it, but let’s face it. Like men, females also have facial hair. Thankfully, women tend to have facial hair that’s less noticeable. Even then, a good proportion of us could do better with a lot less facial fuzz. Men tend to shave in order to not grow a beard, but why should women with short, fine, baby hair have facial hair removal done?   1. IT HELPS REDUCE ACNE Not a cure for acne but you will be surprised at how it can improve acne, especially the comedonal ones. Acne is caused by clogged pores due to excessive oil production. Since hair grows out of pores which are also natural “discharging channels” for oil and sweat, it makes a lot of sense to have facial hair removed to reduce the likelihood of clogged pores.   2. IT HELPS GET RID OF BUMPS Laser hair removal means no more shaving, and no more razor bumps. So the skin surface appears more even without further risks Continue Reading

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
