There is a method to this madness we call aging. When you reach a certain age in your life, a casual glance in the mirror on a Monday morning may suddenly shed light on how you’re wearing your years like a burden on your face.
Before you allow your skin to succumb to the pull of gravity and weathered by the sands of time, let me reassure you that all is not lost.
Here are a few choice tips to help you to embrace your coming of age with class – and a renewed confidence.
Hydrate and Look Great
This is one of the most important, yet overlooked steps in one’s beauty regime. Always make sure your body is flush with water: at least 8-10 glasses flush. Water detoxifies your body and expels toxins that lurk beneath, giving you clear and acne-free skin. If you’re a step too late and acne is already in play, keep drinking water while you explore your solution here.)
Too much of something is never good news, however. Keep yourself and your skin constantly hydrated during the day, but restrict your fluid intake within 2 hours before bedtime. Too much water before you sleep heightens the likelihood of morning puffiness, which might give rise to facial sag.

You’re Hot and You’re Cold
The weather can be a very unforgiving element in our quest to retain our youth. In a climatically erratic setting like Singapore, we may never know what we’re going to get as we step out of our house to start our day.
This wet-and-dry, hot-and-cold scenario that we deal with on a regular basis does not bode well for our skin condition. The alternating weather pattern causes the skin capillaries in our face to contract and expand with haste, leading to broken veins and skin redness, adding a dull and blemished finish to your complexion.
If you’re losing the glow in your face and find your skin constantly put through the paces by the weather, find out more about our revolutionary PDRN cellular facials, a procedure dedicated to revitalizing your complexion, and shaving a few years off your biological clock.
Collagen is literally the glue that holds our skin together; they are the connective tissue of our body. We tend to lose a percentage of collagen as we age, lending more truth to the myth that the older we get, the “less well put together” we become.
Here is a startling statistic to put things into clearer perspective: women would have lost 20% of their collagen by the time they hit the age 40, and 20%-40% as they approach 50.
Before the fine lines start to show, and the perky parts get relegated to a dismal sag, there is a solution to keep your collagen count at a healthy high. Our Age Defy Rejuvenating & Anti-Aging Lotion contains retinoids, Vitamin C and coenzyme Q10, robust antioxidants that can protect the skin from aging and initiate cellular regeneration, resulting in fresher and more youthful looking skin.
As we spend too much time focusing on what’s north of our jaw, there is an oft-neglected part of our body that paints a very clear picture of age… the neck.
A part of the body as commonly exposed as our face, the skin on our neck is actually thinner, thus accentuating the effects of lost collagen and elasticity that comes naturally with age. Couple this with years of gravity pulling on fat, you might just run the risk of suffering from an affliction we call the “turkey neck”.
Make sure your neck is consistent with oozing that youthful exuberance as your face, in the form of our Luxe Lift Program. Designed for patients trying to win the battle against gravity on their skin, this is a groundbreaking program specially designed to reverse the effects of sagging. The 3-pronged procedure tightens and firms your skin while restoring that healthy tone and smoothing out your facial texture.
Let the (Laser) Lights Guide You Home
As we make great technological strides in the pursuit of beauty, many new alternatives have surfaced that marry the conventional methods of skincare with a healthy dose of new-age technology.
It is easy to be overwhelmed when doing your research on these new forms of treatment, what with a myriad of different types of “laser therapy”. At this point, you’d much rather purchase that topical skin tightening cream everyone uses that’s on the market.
But what if I told you there was a painless procedure that combines elements of a facial with skin tightening and rejuvenating properties?
The Illumi Facial is a painless procedure for those who desire a quick and painless fix to breathe new life into their jaded facial features, and be ready in no time to take on the world with newfound vitality and vigor.
Using intense pulsed light therapy against the setting of a facial, this treatment brings you instant gratification, and prominent results.
