hey, Ive been using clinelle pureswis hydracalm for more than 3 months. I should say that it is recommended for you to try. Hydracalm is like a lotion for face where it could substitute sheet mask. I only apply clinelle hydracalm before bed and it helps my face a lot. I often travel to dry country and my face just couldn't accept the cold weather. After using the lotion, i can say my face don't dehydrate anymore now. I just bought the new bottle here https://iprice.sg/search/?term=clinelle+pure+swiss+hydr+calm . I did my purchase with coupons before but i'm not sure if they still have the same offer. In case you want to look for lazada coupons it should be here https://iprice.ph/coupons/lazada/
great tips

Why don't you do a walk-in to Radium Medical Aesthetics? They have their own in-house skincare brand... its very very affordable because they don't pass the cost to us for the advertising for those mainstream brands...

Check out Skin Rich Serum by idonae, a Singapore skin care brand. It's made of natural oil with skin whitening and firming ingredients, most suitable for dry and normal skin.

Personally, I use alot of Korean products so what I'm recommending here are K-Masks and skincare.

For moisturising masks, the most recent one I raved about is Gobdigoun Water balloon hydrating mask. You can read my review here - http://ireviewuread.com/post/165737948068/gobdigoun-masks

For a more economical mask, you can get the Mediheal horse oil Proatin Mask. Not only is it very hydrating but it whitens the face too. I reviewed that here - http://ireviewuread.com/post/151160122573/althea-sheet-masks

Or just get any sleeping mask. I never had a sleeping mask I don't love. Not only does it save you the time for you rinse off in the morning but your face looks so bright thereafter!

For serums/ampoules, if you're willing to spulge you can try Sothys ampoule. They have ampoules for hydration, brightening and oxgenating. I tried the hydrating one and it's quite nice. You can read my verdict here - http://ireviewuread.com/post/151759411068/sothys-hydrating-essential-ampoule

It pays to do this always. I tend to use http://www.paulaschoice.com/cosmetic-ingredient-dictionary/
doesn't take long and well worth it.


Oh yes I definitely find more information. In fact I write emails to the skin specialist to ask questions if I am not sure of what ingredient they use and I met three scientist who formulate my skin care products so yeah I do keep myself informed !

Try Mary Kay MelaCEP Plus series that comes with cleanser, mask, freshener, serum and cream. Particularly the Ultimate Serum works wonder for me as it brightens up my dull/ pigmented skin. My friends around me noticed the difference on me and that's when I know it works!

You might want to try this double combination:



W+ Flawless Face Serum
A skin rejuvenating serum with Retinyl Palmitate that helps to increase collagen production and hydration to gently reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, excess sebum and enlarged pores and signs of sun damage.
https://wellaholic.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=56



W+ Rejuvenating Night Cream

A skin rejuvenating cream that assists in cellular regeneration and the prevention of collagen loss from UV photo-damage and ageing. With the goodness of Retinyl Palmitate, Hyaluronic Acid and Allantoin.
https://wellaholic.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=59

This double combination is very effective due to the fact that they focus on Retinol or Retinyl Palmitate.

An informative article by Byrdie’s Hallie Gould peels the layers off retinol. In short, retinol is an amazing ingredient for your skin! To find out more, read on.
In an effort to get educated , Hallie contacted both a top dermatologist and a celebrity aesthetician for the full rundown. Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group and celebrity facialist Renée Rouleau eagerly and thoroughly answered all of her burning questions, as well as the ones she crowd-sourced from co-workers and friends.

What is Retinol?

“Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that has been used for anti-aging and found in many skincare products,” Nazarian explains.
Rouleau adds, “It can stimulate the metabolism of skin cells and encourage collagen production. Retinol can be absorbed within the skin and, when combined with certain enzymes, it’s converted into tretinoin (the acid form of vitamin A, also known as retinoic acid). Using a well-formulated and stable product with retinol will visibly reduce the appearance of sun damage, brown spots, lines, wrinkles and large pores. Its magic is in its ability to resurface the skin’s texture for a smoother, more even-toned look."
What’s the difference between retinol, Retin-A, and retinoid?
“Both Retin-A and retinol are considered types of retinoids (which is a class of medication),” says Nazarian. “Both can help with promoting faster skin cell turnover, and both are proven options for helping reverse signs of skin aging. But retinol over-the-counter—it requires conversion in the skin to the active form, while a Retin-A is a prescription product that is more potent and slightly more effective at diminishing wrinkles and fighting acne. You will need to speak to a dermatologist about getting a prescription.”
“Retin-A restores the organization of cells through cellular turnover in the epidermis, so they are less likely to fall into the pores and block them—resulting in fewer clogged pores and small breakouts,” says Rouleau. “It also improves the look of wrinkles by retexturing and smoothing the skin’s surface and reducing pore size.”

What are the pros?

“The pros of either are that you will see improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, and enhanced collagen production in the skin, with improvement in skin tone. Retin-A is just a stronger prescription version that works faster and more effectively not only for anti-aging but also for acne,” explains Nazarian.
Retin-A can be helpful for those with certain types of acne prone skin. “A prescription retinoid is very beneficial for anti-aging and works on some types of acne,” Rouleau explains, “specifically whiteheads, blackheads, closed comedones, and general clogged pores."

What are the cons?

“The cons of either,” says Nazarian, “are that over-usage can cause drying and irritation of skin. Some people with super-sensitive skin conditions like rosacea may not be able to tolerate either. Both topicals also make you more sensitive to sunlight, leading to quicker and easier sunburns. Both are also contraindicated in pregnancy,” says Nazarian.
She continues, “Retinoids can only be damaging to skin if you have a super-sensitive underlying skin condition like eczema or rosacea and can flare and enhance inflammation. Still, patients with sensitive conditions like rosacea may still be able to use a retinoid, but they need to gradually introduce it into their skincare regimen, perhaps only one time weekly, and prep their skin with a topical moisturizer before applying the retinoid.

 “Lastly, I don’t recommend Retin-A or retinol it for anyone who doesn’t take sun safety seriously. Daily use of sunscreen is crucial to seeing successful results with a retinoid,” says Rouleau.
At what age should you start using retinol?

Nazarian recommends, “There are no true guidelines on how early you can start a retinoid, but if you’re old enough to be thinking about wrinkles, you should be doing something to prevent them! I find that most women benefit from starting a retinoid treatment in their late teens or early 20s.”
Similarly, Rouleau recommends retinol for those in their late 20s who have minimal to no breakout activity—as this is when cellular turnover starts to slow down. She continues, “Simply put, the best candidate is for those whose breakout years are behind them. If someone has sensitive, easily irritated skin, retinol is a good ingredient to prevent the look of aging whereas a prescription retinoid could be too irritating. With continued use, retinol works to fade hyper-pigmentation (brown spots and patches) and give the look of smoother skin in a gentler, non-drying way than a prescription form.”
What time of day should you apply?

“Most retinoids are not photo stable or sunlight stable, meaning they should be kept in an opaque well-sealed container and used only at night. Generally speaking, I suggest all of my patients begin using a pea-size amount once weekly over their moisturizer. They would gradually increase how often, but not how much, they are using based on how their skin response. If any redness or irritation is noted the next day, you should skip that night’s application.”
Rouleau adds, “Apply your retinol serum to the entire face and neck. Wait three minutes and apply a small amount of moisturizer, if needed. Use the retinol serum for two nights on, one night off, alternating with an exfoliating acid serum and a nourishing treatment serum.”
