Can you imagine yourself going to work bare-faced? How about meeting up with friends or posting a selfie sans make-up? If the above scenarios make you cringe, you are not alone. A lot of women too, feel vulnerable to leave the house without make-up on.
Although putting make-up on is a great way of expressing yourself and enhancing the beautiful features you already have, you don’t need to depend on it as a crutch to define your beauty. Yes, makeup can hide blemishes, acne, and dark spots, as well as visually lift your skin without going under the knife, but it is still just an illusion.
Besides, let’s face it: we can’t wear make-up all the time. Aside from the fact that cosmetics, in general, aren’t the BFF your skin needs, it is ridiculous to see someone swimming or hiking with a full face of make-up on.
Well, is it possible to ditch your morning make-up routine some days, go make-up free, and still end up looking drop-dead gorgeous?
Why yes. Yes, you can. However, keep in mind that it will require some effort on your part. However, the good news is that these tips will do you good, not just for the days you decide to ditch make-up altogether, but in the long run as well.
This may seem like a no-brainer and it is ubiquitous in every “How-to-Get-Terrific-Skin” article you can find on the internet, but it’s ubiquitous for a reason: it works. Sloughing away dead skin cells can reveal more radiant and luminous skin underneath. Even if you already use a face scrub, adding a chemical exfoliator to your skincare regimen will make a big difference in your skin. However, it is best to assess your skin’s needs first, so you can titrate the use of a chemical exfoliator accordingly.
An aesthetic doctor in Singapore recommends VIDASKIN Glow Renewal Serum which contains Mandelic and Lactic acid that renews the skin gently and improves skin radiance and luminosity.
Afterwards, maximize the amazing effects of exfoliation and give your skin a treat with Rejuran. This treatment activates revitalization of the skin by promoting cell growth through inducing fibroblast production collagen. This will help achieve smoother, firmer skin by improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck, and under eyes.
Always Use Sunscreen
Sunscreen should be a mandatory staple in your skincare routine. The Sun’s UVA, UVB (UVC from the sun does not actually reach the earth … it is used industrially to disinfect equipment) rays are the main cause of premature aging of the skin. Since it protects your skin against the sun’s broad spectrum of harmful UV rays, it minimizes the penetration of UV rays into the skin and the triggering of a variety of skin issues like broken blood vessels, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots. Yikes!
In recent research, it has also been proven that besides UV, blue light which emits from our computer and mobile screens also ages the skin! Furthermore, pollution has been proven to worsen pigmentation and prematurely ages the skin.
Try Crystal Tomato®’s Beyond Sun Protection with a remarkably high SPF of 79.7. It also protects against haze, poor air quality, and overall environmental pollutants, so you can kick premature aging and hyperpigmentation to the curb.
Get Enough Sleep
Often in this crazy, business-driven world, you would hear some very strange things. One of the most notorious phrases would be that ever-so familiar battle cry, “Sleep is for the weak”. Indeed, one may be required to sacrifice a ton of rest to get the job done, but this is definitely far more detrimental than it is helpful, and your skin is one of the things that gets the most beating.
Not getting enough sleep triggers a lot more issues than just dark circles and a terrible mood. Burning the midnight oil can lead to an increase of cortisol or stress hormones in your body, which aggravate your acne. A poor sleep schedule also speeds up the breakdown of hyaluronic acid and collagen, which leaves your skin dull.

Toners, especially toners with active ingredients for extra benefits, or organic bases which nourishes the skin, such as rosewater, will help eliminate some of the excess oil and shine and keep pores from getting clogged with debris, impurities, and other pollutants. Some toners may also contain acids which serve as a daily gentle exfoliator for your skin.
Incorporate Face Mists in Your Routine
If you find your skin dull in the middle of the day, instantly hydrate and refresh your complexion with a facial mist. Facial mists benefit the skin in a myriad of ways: they can balance the skin’s pH level and relieve irritated skin; they also help spruce up the skin’s moisture levels, leaving it radiant and glowing.
Exercise Your Way to Clear Skin
Working out helps balance your body’s cortisol levels by triggering the release of feel-good hormones. It also improves blood circulation for a clearer complexion with flushed cheeks for that post-workout glow. Sweating also gives your skin that glow by releasing toxins and opening up pores to get rid of any impurities.
Zap Those Skin Issues Away
When all else fails, however, and no amount of water nor sleep could help, it’s time to run to science to save the day. Modern laser treatments, like from an aesthetic clinic in Singapore, VIDASKIN, the Cutera Laser Genesis Skin Therapy that utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discreetly and effectively treat fine-line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, with virtually zero downtime!
Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Moisturizers are great for your skin, but for hydration that goes beyond skin-deep, Vidaskin’s Skin Boosters is the best choice. It rejuvenates the skin by enhancing the hydration levels deep inside the skin tissues and increasing its elasticity, firmness and smoothness. Skin Boosters treatment replaces the lost hyaluronic acid in the skin and restores the skin’s firmness, natural hydration and radiance. Hydrated skin has a firm and smooth surface that reflects light in a manner that gives it a glowing, dewy appearance.
