Essential Skin Care Tips: 10 Easy Ways to Ensure Fantastic Skin

Singapore offers a rare opportunity for year-round water recreation and sunbathing. However, that much outdoor activity can be bad for your skin. To help you, here are 10 simple tips to help you care for your skin while in Singapore. Exfoliate Your Skin Dead skin cells and debris build up over time and make your skin look dull. You need to remove those dead skin cells and debris with an exfoliating wash or scrub. Don’t Just Use Hand Soap Hand soap is great for washing your hands, but little else. Your face and body require the best body bath products that match your skin type and ensure your skin gets the moisturizers, vitamins, and nutrients that hand soap doesn’t provide. Avoid Razor Burn Whether you are a woman and shave your legs or a man and shave your face, you’ll get the best results and preserve your skin by using sharp razors and short strokes while shaving. The longer the stroke and the duller the blade, the more razor burn you will get. Cool It in the Shower While showering, it is best to keep the temperature less than steaming hot. Hot showers drive the natural oils from your skin, leaving it dry and dull in appearance. Very warm showers will clean just as well, without sapping your skin’s natural oils. Moisturize Your Skin When you wake up, before you go to bed, and intermittently throughout the day you should use a moisturizer matched for your particular skin type. That means oil-based moisturizer if you have dry skin, and a water-based moisturizer if your skin is oily. Adjust Your...

5 Sure-Fire Ways to Make Busy Guys’ Skin Look and Feel Fantastic

Singapore has much to offer its citizens and visitors. That means, like most men in Singapore, you probably are very busy. That also means you most likely are not taking good care of your skin. Fortunately, proper facial care for men is relatively simple to incorporate into your daily routine. To help you take better care of your skin and get your appearance at its absolute best, here are five daily routines that will improve your skin and appearance.   Drink Lots of Water If you don’t stay hydrated, your skin won’t have the water it needs to stay supple and moist, especially on hot, sunny Singaporean days. Most men should drink at least six glasses of water each day to stay fully hydrated. More water is needed when drinking caffeinated drinks and alcohol since they are diuretic and expel water from your body.   Use a Good Moisturizer With 12 hours of sunlight every day and lots of humidity, the skin on your face takes a good deal of punishment in Singapore. Using an appropriate moisturizer will help you to counteract the debilitating effects of the Singapore weather. If your skin is dry, using an oil-based moisturizer is best. If you have oily skin, then you should use a water-based moisturizer for your face and skin.   Screen Out the Sun The sun is your skin’s worst enemy in many ways, especially if you don’t take the time to use an appropriate sunscreen. The best sunscreens contain moisturizer and have a sun protection factor of at least 15 and up to 30. That means you have a broad...

Want To Get Rid of Eyeglasses And Contact Lenses For Good? Know About LASIK Surgery And Its Cost

  People struggling with myopia or nearsightedness can’t live without either wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses to help them correct the refractive error and see clearly even from afar. However, even if these practical solutions are the most common ways to deal with myopia, they can become obstructive in some activities such as sports and other active events.   At the same time, wearing contact lenses can only be done for a limited period of time, thus it requires extra time to remove and put on everyday, which may seem to be bothersome, especially for people always on the go.               If you’re getting tired of wearing eyeglasses or too busy to have the time to maintain the lifestyle of wearing contact lenses, then you might want to start considering the option of getting a LASIK surgery. It is one of the recommended solutions to cure and get rid of myopia and its disadvantages for good. Unlike earlier forms of corrective eye surgery, this treatment boasts of less or no pain and clearer eyesight within hours after the procedure.   The price of LASIK surgery in Singapore ranges from $3,200 to $3,700 for both eyes. This is the price for a standard Lasik, and the package price also includes 3 to 4 post-operative appointments and eye-plugs (if you need them).             Nowadays, a more expensive type of LASIK procedure called the Wavefront/ Topography Guided LASIK treatment promises a more advanced technology in reshaping the cornea by using a 3D map measurement system. Unlike the standard LASIK procedure, the Wavefront...
