For many time-strapped sleep-deprived urbanites alike, looking stunningly fresh-faced and ever ready to shine is a real challenge. Need more complexion oomph to make up for prematurely ageing chronic sleep deprivation? Nova-3R laser is the top on our lustre list as it addresses all three tenets of the ideal radiant complexion in a quick zap: Even colour, smooth texture and a healthy springy tone. A trio of infrared, pulsed light and photobiomodulation tones the slack, evens skin tone and invigorates stressed, sapped skin for a show-stopping luminous clarity that’s poised for accolades and wow; a quick and painless lunchtime fix that may seem like a small step from you, but is a big step for your skin.

Beautiful, glowing skin is the ultimate goal when working towards a better complexion. Now, who doesn’t want skin that looks fabulously healthy? One of the best ways to get healthy and glowing skin is by the process of proper cleansing and rejuvenation. Here’s one of our favourite facials to get beautiful glowing crystal clear skin in less than 2 hours! For radiant and dewy complexion, the Go Glow Facial really does work wonders! This intensive clinical facial combines cleansing, exfoliation, stimulating cellular renewal, hydration and antioxidant protection all in one treatment. The award winning Go Glow Facial is excellent for those who want to restore glow to dull and lacklustre skin. This extraordinary facial begins with a crystal microdermabrasion scrub to remove dead cells and debris, combined with a pumpkin enzyme peel for deep exfoliation. To effectively revive dull looking complexion, Oxygen Boost masque is perfect for the job. It doesn’t just stop there, the facial is complemented by active serums and cremes for cellular renewal and deep rejuvenation. Your skin feels firmer and luminous immediately after!

Also start using a super-charged overnight mask two or three days prior to the 'big night'. Alternate to ensure that you tackle everything from loss of lustre to fine lines. Sloane Inc's Sleeping Peel (USD $78) is brimming with glycolic aci to kick-start sluggish cells and refine your skin's texture, 

while Dior's Hydra Life Jelly Sleeping Mask (USD $69) is packed with hyaluronic acid to replenish moisture reservoirs and promote plumpness.

The morning of, 'pep up' post-sleep skin with Sloane Inc's Gold Glow Recovery Mask (USD $65), it constantly infuses fatigued faces with its cocktail of replenishing, revitalising nutrients. Leave on while you go about your morning!

If you're prone to puffiness, minimise swelling (and dispel toxins) with Foreo's Iris Eye Massager (SGD $139)- it vibrates and pulsates over the eye area to encourage drainage, promote circulation and stimulate cellular turnover.

A brightening serum will become your best friend. Formulated with Canadian willowherb, Persian silk tree, and a potent blend of actives to support smooth, refined pores and boost skin’s overall quality, Origin's Original Skin Renewal Serum (USD $54) features a blend of optics that help soften and blur the appearance of pores and imperfections, leaving skin looking healthy and glowing.

Follow with a quick spritz of Allies of Skin's Molecular Saviour Toner Mist (SGD $79) to supplement the plumping benefit.

A brightening, priming moisturiser is the ultimate pre-make up step. Guerlain's L'Or Make-up Base (USD $74) boasts 24 carat gold to blur visibility of imperfections and create a flawless base for foundation.

To finish your look, use this set of six metallic powder highlighters from Anastasia Beverly Hills (USD $45) for intense luminosity. Use these six powders together or separately to highlight and accent your cheekbones, Cupid's bow, bridge of your nose, and eyes. The powders feature intense payoff and the ultra-fine milled formula won’t leave any shimmer particles when removed. The effect is a smooth, even glow that lasts.
