Efficient Exercise: Monitoring the Beat

Need a little push during your workout but a little afraid of pushing too hard? The serious gym rat has a cool tool to recommend – a heart rate monitor. Whilst not absolutely vital for a workout, it is the great way to track, listen to and push your own body, without risking an injury or a cardiovascular event.   Safety For Beginners Turning up the beat is a great way for beginners to work out at the right intensity. Objectively, monitoring one’s heart rate during a workout helps one see just how hard one is working at the gym. For the beginner, who may be less familiar with how cardiovascular or strength training may correlate with how hard one’s body is working, heart rate monitoring is a great and easy guide to go easy or go hard, depending on what your heart says. So it works both ways; it allows you to push yourself a little harder and see how where your tipping point is, and it also allows Continue Reading

Mane Menu – Eat These to Sprout Healthy Hair

Looking good is just as much about taking care of your body on the inside as it is about smoothing on potions on the outside. We are not just talking about your skin: A nutritious diet is vital to promote healthy (i.e. beautiful and bountiful) hair too. In fact, as the second fastest growing tissue in your body, it requires a whole lot of energy to support a magnificent mane. And as a dispensable accessory with no real physiological function to the body, your crowning glory gets the first and worst hit when the system reshuffles nutrients to life-supporting organs – even with minor deficiencies you wouldn’t think much of. Fill up on this good-hair-day diet to give your tresses every advantage without compromising on your waistline.   BREAKFAST Oats are a heart-healthy and convenient source of iron. Stealth iron deficiency is one of the commonest cause of brittle, thinning hair, especially in women. Berries are bursting in vitamin C which aids absorption of iron and supports the tiny blood vessels feeding the Continue Reading

The Cost Of Beauty: Rogue Aesthetic Treatments On The Rise

Getting cosmetically enhanced is becoming common. Women, and increasingly, men, are getting more accustomed to the idea of various degrees of beauty fixes. Botox used to be done for older folks who wanted to rid their faces of wrinkles, but enter Botox prejuvenation today, where Botox is done in much younger people to delay the formation of wrinkles. For those with flat asian noses, the “lunchtime rhinoplasty” is a fuss-free nose augmentation filler or nose threadlift procedure which can be done at the doctor’s office in under 60 minutes, from prep, numbing and discharge from the clinic. Botox is a powerful neurotoxin that can be used to relax or paralyse muscles. In aesthetic doses, Botox is harmless and can be used effectively to smoothen skin, lift or depress certain muscle activity. Dermal fillers are actually soft, moldable, biocompatible and biodegradable materials that can be safely injected by a qualified and trained medical professional. In the right hands, the results are natural without much downtime. In the wrong hands, a botched Continue Reading

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
