Why Singaporean Women Need Special Skin Care

  Different people have different skin types. Women of Asian descent have more sensitive skin than most races, and they experience certain skin conditions due to the skin’s adaptation to the climate. Most Asian women, including Singaporeans, need special skin care to make sure these skin conditions are kept at bay. However, why do Singaporean women need special skin care?             Asian skin is highly sensitive   Singaporean skin or Asian skin is prone to irritation because they have a thinner stratum corneum, which is the outermost layer of the skin compared to other races. Hence, the skin can be sensitive to the sun, pollutants and even chemicals. Asian skin is also prone to wrinkles and fine lines, but these can be prevented with the help of good skin care products, such a face serum. As a top beauty brand, Clarins make the best face serums aiming to reduce the appearance of premature signs of skin aging.             Asian skin suffers from hyperpigmentation more   Hyperpigmentation is certainly an unpleasant skin condition. Asian skin, however, is more prone to having dark skin pigments than other races. Darker skin has more melanin than those with fair skin like Caucasians.  Though melanin protects the skin from the ultraviolet rays that can cause skin cancer, it predisposes people to pigmentary disorders such as freckles, melasma, and hyperpigmentation.             Asian skin is oily   Asian skin contains more sebaceous glands than Caucasian skin. Thus, the skin is oilier since the glands produce more sebum. This means that the pores...

Key Points to Understand How Marine Growth Prevention Systems Can Protect Your Ship

  While ships are in the process of sailing, the fact is that they resort to using seawater for many different needs. The system of the ship uses the water which will be released back into the ocean after use. While using seawater is efficient and convenient for multiple purposes, it cannot be ignored that the water does possess various marine organisms which make entry into the ship as well. They can be deposited on various parts of the system of the ship and can actually thrive quite well. But if precautions are not implemented, this marine growth can indeed inflict unwanted damage to various parts of the system of the ship. Here we present the causes and effects of marine growth, along with ways to deal with it effectively.             ♦ Causes Of Marine Growth   Seawater is known to possess both micro marine organisms and macro marine organisms. They can include mollusks, hard shells, barnacles, sea worms, and algae. These organisms have proven time and time again in being notoriously able to stick to various surfaces on the ship. And when they thrive there, the result is what is called marine growth. There can be large clusters of marine growth which formulate inside the pipelines of the ship. This is primarily due to the result of seawater entering into the system of the ship that processes the seawater. The organisms locate the ideal spot within the system where the conditions of the environment there appear just right, along with several other pertinent factors that contribute to their prosperity, such as ph balance,...

Why the Traditional Office Environment is Bad for Your Skin

  A lot of people have the wrong assumption that their skin won’t be exposed to harmful elements if they work inside an office. However, several studies have shown that if you spend most of your time in an office, your skin is also susceptible to various skin illnesses and conditions. Just because you are away from direct sunlight, wind, and rain doesn’t necessarily mean your skin is completely safe.             Staying Indoors Too Much Can Weaken Your Skin’s Defense System   Schweiger Dermatology in New York City found out that people who stay indoors for too long can easily get melanoma when they are exposed to bursts of sunlight. The logic here is that when you spend most of your time in an office, your skin’s defense against ultraviolet rays gets weaker. When your skin gets exposed to sunlight, it’s easier for the rays to infiltrate the layers of your skin.             The Bad Effects Of Air Conditioning On Your Skin   Another cause of skin problems in office environments is the air conditioning system. If your office is air-conditioned for most of the day, there’s the chance that your skin will dry out. Long hours of exposure to an air conditioned environment will cause your skin to lose some of its moisture. If you are exposed to this for days, weeks, or months, your skin will slowly break down. This is why it’s important that you control the settings of your air conditioning system to ensure that it’s not damaging your skin.          ...

Are you suffering from nearsightedness? Get a LASIK treatment in Singapore now

Whether you’ve acquired myopia (or nearsightedness) from hereditary factors, or you’ve developed it through exposure to risk factors, the disadvantages that go with this eye disorder are no doubt distracting, and even debilitating at times. People who are suffering myopia usually wear prescription eyeglasses as an initial corrective measure. Those who need to get rid of their glasses wear contact lenses whenever possible. However, for people who want to permanently address this visual impairment, the most popular solution is to undergo a LASIK treatment, a cutting-edge technology which allows little to no pain and assures clearer eyesight within hours after the procedure.   There are several types of laser eye treatment such as LASIK, PRK, LASEK, and EpiLASIK. All of these surgeries use “excimer” laser to correct the vision by reshaping the cornea. If you are interested in getting rid of your eyeglasses or contact lenses for life, here are the prices of Lasik in Singapore: – The price of the standard LASIK surgery ranges from $3,200 to $3,700 for both eyes. Usually, eye clinics offer package prices which already include 3 to 4 post-operative appointments and eye-plugs if needed. – Another new and modern type of LASIK treatment is called the Wavefront / Topography Guided LASIK treatment, which starts at around $4,375.  While this procedure costs half expensive than the standard procedure, it promises a more advanced measurement system using a 3-D map to guide the laser in reshaping the cornea. This allows the treatment of potential problems like glare, shadows, and halos, that standard LASIK can’t treat.   One thing that you’ll have to remember very well...

Why Asian Skin Needs Special Treatment (Plus Product Recommendations)

  It’s a well-known fact that the skin sensitivity of Asian women is different from those in Europe and America. This is because there’s a significant variance in the pigment composition of their skin. With that said, if you live in Asia, especially in countries that are quite near the equator like Singapore, you need to exert more efforts in taking care of your skin. Your skin needs special treatment to ensure that it can deal with the heat, humidity, and other weather problems in tropical countries. Here are some of the main reasons why your Asian skin needs better treatment and pampering:             Asian skin scars more easily   Asian women have skins with thinner stratum corneum and are thus more susceptible to scarring. Because the layer is thin, it’s also more sensitive and reacts quickly to the heat and humidity in the air.             The majority of Asian women suffer from hyperpigmentation   This is especially true among women who are thirty years old and above. Because the pigmentation level is high, skin conditions like melasma and dark spots often occur in several areas of the skin. These dark spots usually develop as a result of a bruise, injury, or scratch that’s starting to heal.             Asian skin dries easier because they lose moisture faster   Some scientific studies have shown that the skin of Asian women has high levels of TEWL (Transepidermal Water Loss). It’s simple, the quicker you lose moisture, the faster your skin dries out.        ...

4 Effective Solutions For Singaporeans Who Are Suffering From Hair Loss

A country’s climate can be a significant contributor to hair loss. With that said, Singaporeans who have a history of hair loss in the family need to pay more attention to the health of their hair. The heat and humidity which characterizes Singapore’s climate can put a lot of pressure to the hair and scalp. This leads to drying which will eventually hasten hair loss. Here’s a quick overview of some of the most efficient Singapore hair loss solutions that you should be aware of: Keep your hair and scalp clean – Always bear in mind that the root of hair loss problems usually lies in your follicles. If you have unhealthy follicles, your hair loss problems will only get worse. It’s important that you thoroughly wash your hair and scalp on a regular basis. The humid weather in Singapore causes your scalp to produce more oil than necessary. Oily hair and oily follicles will damage your scalp. Take medications – There are certain types of medications like Minoxidil that can be very helpful in restoring hair growth in your bald spots. You have to apply these on your scalp either by rubbing it in or by spraying it. You don’t get instant results, but the effects will be noticeable within weeks or months. Try laser hair therapy – The idea behind laser therapy is that the low-level light from the lasers will help in stimulating cells in the hair follicles. Always keep in mind that hair loss results from hair follicles dying. If these follicles are rejuvenated using laser therapy, there’s a chance that your hair will start...
