‘Why is my face always not balanced? by Best Facials Singapore

If you are one of us who is frustrated with imbalanced skin, you are not alone.

Living in a busy city like Singapore often takes a toll on our skin. A combination of late night conference calls, local spicy food, frequent traveling and subjecting our skin to very humid air (gym/hot yoga) or dehydrated air (air0conditioned office/bedroom) can be very harsh on our skin. Not to mentioned hormonal changes due our monthly cycles or pregnancy/childbirth/lactation.

In fact, some of us are so desperate for time in the morning, we often leave  home without any skincare at all. We are guilty of applying foundation directly on naked face. So we thought we could get by with this quick make up fix without proper skincare. Only to be plagued by dehydrated, congested and sensitive skin. Also freckles on our nose and finelines around the eyes.

The secret to a good yet quick skincare routine is first to understand your skintype. Then to correctly choose a set of 3 products to be used day and night.

Our skin type can be broadly categorized into 4 categories

1) Dehydrated, Dull and Congested Skin

The key active ingredient to look out to heal dehydrated skin is Hyaluronic Acid.

Hyaluronic Acid is a sugary molecule (not an acid as many have mistaken it to be), occurs naturally in our skin’s structure. This super emolient has the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water.

When skin is hydrated, it will not look dull as it tends to reflect light well. Radiance.

Hot pick: Dr Babor Hyaluron Serum and Cream

2) Red with Sensitivity

Sensitive skin tends to get red when exposed to sun, itches occasionally and eczema-prone, especially on the thinnest part of the face, eg., cheeks, corner of lips and even forehead.

Many ingredients which have been used for awhile including licorice root, aloe vera, lymphokinine are used to desentitize the skin, reduce redness and strengthen the skin barrier.

Hot pick: Guinot Hydra Sensitive range

3) Prone to Blemishes

Pimples tend to develop when dead cells and excess oil begin to block up tiny follicles in the skin. Bacterial work their way into the plugged up follicles and start multiplying.

Hot pick: Maria Galland SOS Serum D510

4) Aging skin with loss of firmness and finelines

Loss of collagen, fine lines around corner of eyes, forehead and laughter lines and often hormonal pigmentation are some of the signs of aging skin. To keep skin supple and regenerating healthily, one key observation is exercise. This helps to up the metabolism of the whole body system which helps to detox and increase blood circulation. A diet filled with good quality protein, colorful fruits and vegetables also helps.

For aging skin, all facial oils, hyaluronic acid and rich creams will be helpful.

Hot pick: Maria Galland Regenerating Oil (Black Orchid 002 essence) and Regenerating Cream (5B)
