Best Face Forward – The Rise Of Male Aesthetic Treatments

If you thought only women spend too much time and money on anti-aging and beauty treatments, think again. 10 years ago, the male aesthetic market may have been in its infancy but today it has bloomed into something much bigger, as more and more men have become open to the idea of investing in their own aesthetic enhancement.   BEST FACE FORWARD – WHY MEN ARE TURNING TO AESTHETIC TREATMENTS Surgeries range from the nose job, liposuction, breast reduction for gynecomastia and so on, but what surprises people is that men are also experimenting with non-invasive injectables, such as treatments to soften or erase fine lines, to sharpen their jawlines and non-invasive skin tightening procedures to take a few years off their faces. “Men are seeking rejuvenation procedures are not simply wanting to look beter or younger. Some of them do it for the sake of their careers. They are at the peak of their lives and careers, and want to look every bit like it” says Dr Kenneth Lee, Continue Reading

How To Combat Hair Loss

I noticed I have thinning hair and started looking up hair loss treatments in Singapore. Turns out, one in four women suffer from female pattern hair loss. By this we mean that while it is normal to lose up to 100 hair strands a day (normal shedding), female pattern hair loss is a gradual thinning hair situation that is more serious and can start earlier than expected – in your twenties. If you have hereditary hair loss (which accounts for 90% of all female pattern hair loss), you will need to see a doctor.   Read more: The Future In Hair Loss Treatments   Revage 670 Hair Laser Looking for the best hair clinic or a hair loss doctor in Singapore?

How to be a Superyoung: Why Some People Never Age

BY LISA WILLIAMS “Youth’s a stuff will not endure,” said Shakespeare – wrongly. The Bard had reckoned without the Superyoung: Those irritating folks who seem to age at a more leisurely pace than the rest of us. Photographed in 1998 and more recently, Jennifer Lopez (47) looks virtually untouched by time. So do Halle Berry (50), Cindy Crawford (50), Aaron Kwok (51) and Christie Brinkley (62), who are antithesis to the conventional expectations of how a 50 year-old or Grandma should look like. Why? How? Can we all do it? Scientists are finally figuring out what the deal is. And no, it’s not (just) plastic surgery.   The Wise Words of Coco Chanel: “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get the face you deserve.” Nothing illustrates this better than a side-by-side comparison of the prematurely aged Lindsay Lohan, versus chronologically older but ageless stars like Halle Berry, Cindy Crawford, Aaron Kwok and Christie Brinkley.  Read Continue Reading

Manscaping: A Man’s Guide to Getting Rid of Body Hair

Do the ladies dig your hair, or is it time to clean up the superfluous fur? A new study reveals that hirsute cavemen are out, ‘cos more modern men are extending their hair grooming efforts to below their necks, which might involve shaving off the wooly jumper, trimming the bushes, and even the pristine ‘Boyzillian’- the male Brazillian wax. Once the preserve of women, and gay or metrosexual men, surveys report that male body grooming is becoming increasingly mainstream, particularly amongst young men aged 16-24, and quickly catching on with the more mature crowd as well. Some suggest that this manscaping trend might have been sparked off by well-trimmed or fuzz-free elite athletes and style icons such as David Beckham, Christiano Ronaldo, Daniel Craig, David Gandy and hordes of boyish-looking K-Pop stars. Besides triathletes trying to gain an advantage by going totally bare down there, many of the world’s hottest male celebrities have opted to tame their body hair to best display their glowing skin (or intricate tattoo art) and hard-earned, Continue Reading
