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...

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...
