Aesthetic treatments that work well together

Did you know that you can get a combination of various aesthetic treatments in one session? Before your consultation with your doctor at the aesthetics clinic, you most likely would have done your research and have an idea of which treatment you would like to get. However, do not be surprised if your doctor recommends multiple treatments for you. Unfortunately even with the latest technology, there is currently no single treatment that can resolve most skin imperfections all at once. Hence, a combination of various treatments are often recommended by doctors to target different skin concerns. While many aesthetic procedures today are effective enough when performed on their own, the use of several treatments can help you achieve sustainable and natural-looking results! Here are some benefits you can expect from combining various treatments: • Address various skin concerns at once • Achieve elevated results and maximum benefits • Target the (root) causes of certain aesthetic concerns • Achieve beauty goals faster with lasting improvement Here are two examples of treatment Continue Reading

Want to Maskfish?

Maskfishing, the new catfishing. This term, which was coined following the rise in usage of face masks, describes people who look better with a mask. Personally, I don’t think there should be a negative connotation to this word. If anything, it is just a new realisation that these people have pretty facial features, which have not been appreciated by others. Now that people recognise that they have pretty features, they should be proud of that! This has given me an idea on how to look more attractive with a mask on! Eyebrows You can disagree with me, but I think the only person who can make having no brows work is Jeffree Star. As for the rest of us, we need brows. In fact, I think having neat eyebrows are the most critical factor in helping us appear done up and ready for the day. You’re lucky if you have naturally thick brows because all you need to do is to ensure it stays in the right shape. As for Continue Reading

Learning From the Young Us

While searching up holidays in the month of October (as one does), I saw “Children’s Day”. Then, a pang of nostalgia hit me. As I reminisce about the fun celebrations I had eons ago in school, I can’t help but reflect on the things we can all learn from our young selves. We’ve gone through a wide variety of experiences that have helped shape us into the adults we are today. As the good, the bad and the ugly become more apparent to us, we lose the childlike innocence we once had. Oh, what a shame. This void is then filled by skepticism. As much as I resent the fact that this is the natural process of growing up, I must agree that skepticism is important for survival in today’s world. Along the way, we lose many things, our youth, our innocence and maybe even the wonder we have for this world. But there are some things that we shouldn’t lose. Never lose your sense of self. It is important Continue Reading
