5 Tips to Get Beautiful, Glowing Skinby Andy Cheng Director
Everybody wants beautiful, glowing skin – men and women alike. People have been trying different home remedies to achieve glowing skin but with varying degrees of success. The demand for beautiful, flawless skin has driven up the global beauty care products industry, which is forecasted to hit US$265 billion by end of 2017.
Many people, especially women spend a lot of money buying expensive skin care products in the hope of getting a flawless complexion. But is it necessary? Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics shares with us 5 easy ways to get that glowing skin you always wanted.
Turmeric, Milk, Honey Mask
It may come as a surprise to many people but this important spice for cooking curries has beneficial effects on your skin! Unbeknownst to many people, turmeric has been used for many centuries by brides in India to brighten their skin before their wedding day. It leaves their skin radiant and glowing.
In addition, turmeric has antiseptic, anti-aging, and anti-bacterial properties which makes it an excellent choice for an essential ingredient for facial mask. Here are some anti-aging ingredients in the mask:
- Vitamin C: To promote collagen production and maintain skin firmness
- Vitamin B6: To encourage skin renewal and remove dead skin cells
- Calcium: Promotes healing of skin and calms red, inflamed skin
Mix 1 portion of milk and honey and one-quarter portion of turmeric powder. Apply on clean, dry skin and leave it on the face for 10 minutes or until the mask becomes dry. Carefully rinse it off with cool water and make sure no residue is left. Do this once a week and feel the difference for yourself!
Probably one of the cheapest antibacterial ingredients you can find, lemon is great for treating acne and blackheads. Not unclogging your pores is one of the main reasons that keeps you from having a clear, bright skin. Rich in vitamin C and citric acid, it is also an effective skin brightener because the beneficial goodness of lemon helps to lighten the skin and remove dead skin from the skin surface to reveal newer, firmer skin.
Squeeze half a lemon into a bowl and add two tablespoons of honey. Mix it well until it becomes thick. Apply on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash your face with cool water. Repeat this once a week and see the clear, smooth skin you always wanted!
Medical Aesthetic Treatment: Restylane Skinboosters
For those people who don’t have the luxury of time to see results from home remedies, Restylane SkinBoosters treatment might be your answer. It is a common treatment that is offered by most medical aesthetic clinics in Singapore.
Old-looking, unattractive skin appears so because of the wrinkles and fine lines and the lack of hydration in the skin. Restylane Skinboosters provide long-lasting deep hydration with a healthy, luminous glow.
It works by delivering stabalised hyaluronic acid just under the skin using a series of micro-injections. Hyaluronic acid is safe and compatible with the human body.
Although you can see marvellous results after one treatment, doctors usually recommend their patients to undergo a program of 3 sessions one month apart to see long-lasting, sustainable results. After the program, you can see your face becoming visibly smoother and plumper because of the hydration, leaving you looking luminous for months!
Regular Exfoliation for Brighter Skin
One of the main causes of dull looking skin is because of the accumulation of dead skin cells on your face.
If time permits, you should set aside some time every week
If time permits, you should set aside some time every weekto properly exfoliate your skin. If your skin tends to be oily and clog easily, you should exfoliate the dead skin cells by removing them with a gentle exfoliant.
There is no need to spend so much money to buy an exfoliant. You could easily make an equally effective exfoliant right in your kitchen! A simple scrub of sugar mixed with honey can make a great exfoliant. Rinse it off with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.
Regular Facial Treatments for Healthier Complexion
Sometimes relying on home remedies may not be enough to give you the luminous skin you really want. Visit a reputable medi-spa and get a facial that helps to renew your skin and get rid of the old, dead skin cells that are causing you to have dull skin.
