Best INVESTMENTS for your skin that will pay you back in 1-5 years time

What is your 'dream' skin? Our dream skin is one that is supple, lifted and wrinkle-free as we age. Do you know that every woman's favourite Collagen, which is produced by our body to keep our skin looking young and smooth starts to decrease production once we hit 25. BAM! When it happens, deep wrinkles, dullness and hollow area in the face starts to take over our face. . . We should start investing on our face so that we will reap results in 1 - 5 years time before we even hit the BIG 3... your future self will DEFINITELY thank you! How can we invest on the largest organ of our body?

We highly recommend a luxurious body cream or oil. The skin on our body grows notably dry and wrinkly, so it’s totally how we can keep it well-moisturized and looking for the longest. Not only that, but I always love how my daily routine of showing myself TLC by smoothing on a super-luxurious oil or cream after a long day, especially.  One of my favourite Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter which totally rich, hydrating, creamy you name it... but is so light and transformed my skin to hydrated and pampered.

Everyone should own one Clarisonic!

Clarisonic Mia 1™ Skin Cleansing System features patented Oscillation technology which distributes 300 micro-massage movements to work within skin’s natural elasticity to sweep away dirt, oil, and makeup to unclog pores, while fluid forces allow the water on the device to flush pores cleaner than ever before. This leaves skin ready for treatment products and prepared for smooth, flawless makeup application.

We know you heard this all the time... APPLY SUNSCREEN!

Sunscreen is the best protection against ageing skin and skin cancer.  Remember to apply not just your face, but your ears, your neck, your arms, your leg!!!!!!!!! Since using sunscreen from 18, I finally found Sloane Inc Sunblock SPF 70 7.1 which is my favourite sun protection. It is in a matte base which I didn't believe exist! Many reasons people dislikes sunscreen as it is all thick, sticky, as if suffocating the skin. 100% chemical-free, fragrance-free, water & sweat proof total blocker blends 3 antioxidant teas, an invisible shine-absorbing micro mesh & UV reflectors. 

Other than taking care of your skin from the outside, never forget what you eat counts as well!  Glutathione is the master antioxidant and detoxifier with additional anti-melanogenic properties that prevent complexions from darkening. With age, replenishing our depleted Glutathione reserves is one smart investment for beautiful skin. Oxithion Sublingual Glutathione helps in lightening and brightening complexions while fighting free radical damage, thus keeping skin youthful, supple and fair!

Can I Slow Down Aging in a prolonged time from inside out ?
Yes you definitely can! Dream Sculpture from The Sloane Clinic uses Sculptra to boost the skin's own collagen reserves so it will stay young, supple and lifted for longer. This simply mean that works like a super 'fertilizer' for your skin to produce your own collagen over time (4-6 weeks).

Sculptra is made of Poly-L-lactic acid, a biocompatible (does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body) compound. It is broken down by your body natural with time and there be will no trace of Sculptra in your body over time. Poly-L-lactic acid is not an animal product and does not need skin testing. Depending on the age and the number of sessions, results can last for 2-3 years.

A numbing cream will be applied to the treated area for 10-15 minutes. During the treatment, cold compresses are used to ensure maximize comfort and to minimize possibility of bruising. Injections of Sculptra are meticulously placed in selected areas on the face that will benefit most from the collagen stimulation effects.

As with all injections, you can spot some pin-prick marks, and redness may be seen but these are minimized with proper precautions such as the use of Arnica and cold compresses by the professional nurses at The Sloane Clinic. A post-treatment protocol was also given to help ensure the recovery is comfortable, and also advise to avoid certain medications and alcohol.

After Dream Sculpture, the effect of restoring the shallow and hollow areas in the skin will take place gradually. If you take a look closely at the before and after, you see the apparent difference of the plumped up hollow cheeks, nose bridge, lifted eyes and jaw while looking absolutely natural.

I think many people may be more familiar with Dermal Fillers than Sculptra, we round up a table below for easier differentiation.

Dermal Fillers
Several months to show results Immediate improvement
Natural collagen effects Immediate Volume replacement
Long term enhancement of skin Lasts 6 months to 2 years

Tell us which of these INVESTMENTS will you be starting?! Your future self in your 30s, 40s, 50s will definitely thank you for life!
