SK-II STEMPOWER Eye Cream

 

In order to maintain my youthful look, I take really good care of my eyes. In addition to my daily simple eye massage, an eye moisturizer is a MUST for me. As I believe the skin around our eyes is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. The appearance of our eyes actually determines how old we looked overall.

The skin surrounding the eye is particularly sensitive to the effects of aging due to its thinness, which causes it to easily lose firmness and plumpness.

Recently, I was being introduced to a new eye moisturizer – it is the new SK-II STEMPOWER Eye Cream – the latest addition to SK-II’s award-winning STEMPOWER series.

SK-II scientists, through SK-II Akita study, have discovered that each key affected by aging in different ways. Eye bags begin to sag in the 20s, eyelids develop wrinkles in the 30s, while wrinkles manifest in the corner of the eyes in a woman’s 40s.

Guerlain’s 3 New Super Aqua-Creme Day & Night Creams

 

Recently, Guerlain has introduced 3 new additions to its SUPER AQUA SERUM series. They are the 3 new day and night creams – Super Aqua-Creme Day Gel, Super Aqua-Creme Day Cream and Super Aqua-Creme Night Balm.

In 2012, the original SUPER AQUA-SERUM was first invented with a unique Aquacomplex technology.

And in 2013, a new light texture was introduced that is perfect in hot climate and an ideal choice for normal and combination skin.

In 2014, SUPER AQUA-SERUM, formulated with Aquacomplex, presents the very latest complements to the serum, the line’s star product – 3 day and night creams and a new BB cream in 2 shades.

Do you know hydration is the leading weapon against wrinkles? When skin is well-hydrated, it will not only delay aging process but it also prevents occurrence of the wrinkles. Hydrated skin will appear more plump and resilient.

Hydrating skin = healthy skin.

Guerlain proved in 2012 that skin whose cellular water is polluted becomes dehydrated and wrinkled more quickly. Polluted cellular water slows down the production of collagen, elastin and fibulin-5 (the protein responsible for elastic fibre assembly). The skin loses its density and plumpness, wrinkles and fine lines appear more rapidly.

Aquacomplex, the unique formula of SUPER AQUA-SERUM, is said to naturally boost hydration flows and restore the skin’s youthful appearance. It purifies polluted water by reactivating the micro-fragment elimination process. It is claimed to provide 12-hour hydration.

[Review] Pigment Laser Treatment at SL Clinic by Dr Kelvin Chua

 

If you have been following my blog, you probably are aware that I’ve been suffering from pigmentation for a long while. What drive me nuts is this stubborn pigment spot on my right cheek! I have gone for pigment laser treatment before but the spot turned darker and bigger shortly after a month. It’s really sickening! Even CO2 laser doesn’t help at all. I look 5 years older with this pigment spot (about 13mm in radius)! Even concealer is not able to conceal it completely. I have tried a handful of whitening products but to no avail. After so many years of suffering, I have almost given up until I met Dr Kelvin Chua from SL Clinic. After a brief discussion with him on my stubborn pigment spot, I decided to get it treated by him.

This picture was taken with makeup (foundation) on. The pigment spot was still very visible and dark.

This picture was taken immediately after the first session. The pigment spot appeared even darker upon treatment. I was told it is better to start with a lower energy setting to help deliver a safe and effective results and will work with settings tailored to me.

Many celebrities including Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow enjoy oxygen facial. Madonna claimed that oxygen is her biggest indulgence to stay young. According to her facialist, Los Angeles-based Michelle Peck, Madonna gets an oxygen facial before every show when she’s on tour.
