Effective Skincare Products | Beauty Tips
October has drawn to a close, and with it, another eventful month within the beauty sphere. We've divulged the drama, tracked the trends, and discussed exciting makeup launches. This leaves us with just one last thing to cross off our agenda: the best skincare releases in the month. From highly anticipated launches that lived up to their hype to classics reformulated with a twist, these got our stamp of approval.
Does your skin feel rough to the touch, and looks rather lacklustre and "tired"? According to Dr Chuah Sai Yee, a consultant at the National Skin Centre, sun exposure, pollution and ageing are the main causes of uneven skin tone.
“When skin is repeatedly exposed to UV light, sun damage occurs. As we get older, skin weakens and the regularity of melanin production is affected, leading to brown spots and uneven skin tone,” said the dermatologist.
Another trigger could be hormonal imbalance. “Melasma, a pigment disorder that results in blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation, is commonly experienced by women who are pregnant – which is why it’s also known as the ‘mask of pregnancy’ – or those on contraceptives.”
But it’s not all bad news if your complexion seems lifeless. It's possible to even out skin tone to decrease dullness and skin discolouration. Just follow these steps, along with some suggestions on what products to use.
Believe it or not, they are one of the most common skin problems around. They are also among the most stubborn to get rid of (think icky black dots on your nose).
If you’ve had acne at any point in your life before, you’d know that it can feel like an uphill battle at times. In between finding out what’s causing it (get it together, hormones!) and dropping a significant chunk of money on acne treatments and products, those persistent, pulsating pimples can be a real pain to deal with.
But here’s the thing: ask any beauty industry insider and they’d tell you that one of the most effective ways to deal with a breakout is to see a dermatologist. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the option available to everyone.
Enter KYLAZ, a new skincare brand from the doctors behind IDS Aesthetics and IDS Skincare. The three products in its lineup represent the brand’s clinical approach to treating acne: correct the offending spots, protect skin from further infection, and prevent recurring acne by improving the skin’s immunity. And according to the brand’s testimonies, you can see your skin clearing up within two weeks.
“That’s the general rule of thumb—you should be seeing results from the products that you’re using within two weeks. If not, you should see a doctor,” says Dr SK Tan, the founder of IDS.
KYLAZ’s clinical approach means that their formulas are packed with active ingredients that target specific issues caused by acne. Dr Tan emphasises that despite the high cost of the ingredients, he wants KYLAZ to remain affordable so that it’s accessible for those who suffer from acne. Products in this line range from $18 to $21, and is only available directly on their site.
