Before I knew about this amazing product and its benefits, I usually gone straight to drinking water in the morning but for the past year, this is all I’ve been consuming before water. You might be wondering then, what does it do?
It’s a health supplement drink packed with loads of antioxidants and efficient whitening actives engineered to block out sun rays and treat dry skin, spots, wrinkles and melanin deposition.
This combined with a good sunblock is all you need to combat the blazing sun in Singapore. Since its a health supplement, it can get quite costly to maintain at SGDa bottle
There’s a reason why my skin has been feeling and looking more hydrated throughout the years. That’s because I implemented the daily 2 litres on myself, and everyday I should at least consume 2 litres of water starting with 1 big glass when I wake up. It is still as important, if not the most important aspect in my skincare ritual, that is, to constantly hydrate my body throughout the day just because our body needs it to function properly.
There are so many benefits to drinking water, and here I’m naming a few just to get you started! This readily available natural appetite suppressant helps reduce hunger, increase your metabolism and comes with zero calories if you’re thinking of shedding a few kilos. Water also moisturises your skin, keeping it soft, supple and glowing and is FREE! So start bringing a bottle of water around ( I drink only boiled water from home) and it will start becoming a habit, you won’t feel like it’s a chore.
3. Biotherm LIFE Plankton Toner
I used to think that toners aren’t as important as we can skip past it but since I’ve started using the Biotherm Life Plankton toner, my skin has only felt more fresh and hydrated in the day and doesn’t produce oil sebum easily. Life Plankton is a micro-organism with fundamental regenerative properties and I would tap a generous amount onto my face and neck and within a week of using this product, I’ve seen the effects of newer, younger looking skin and that’s why there’s only half a bottle left now.
4. Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Cream
I am currently using this product for around my eyes and so far, it’s been working amazing on me. Initially I thought a cream base would be too nourishing but turns out, it has the right texture and consistency and delivers all the right kind of benefits for me. It helps firm and contour, slows down the formation of dark circles and eye bags and provides an immediate "lifting" effect.
5. Clarins Serum / Guerlain Serum
Since hydration is the leading weapon against wrinkles, serums have been an essential for me. Guerlain's intense age-defying hydration combined with absolute comfort is a wrinkle plumper with super light texture. It blends and glides onto the skin so easily and doesn't make me feel like I have much on at all!
6. Biotherm AquaSource
During the day, I like to use Biotherm's Aquasource, a 48hr deep hydration replenishing gel thatgives skin a healthy radiance, leaving a plump and silky feeling. It dries up really quickly without having to feel sticky which I appreciate because my skin can oxidize very quickly on hot days so this product helps lock in moisture without feeling suffocating. Selecting the right moisturiser for your skin type is important because that will be your base before putting on any kind of makeup/foundation so keep it light and fresh and it will help your makeup last all day instead of oozing oil.
7. Senka UV Protection
I can't stress how crucial it is to put on sunscreen but other than protecting yourself against skin cancer, wearing sunscreen also helps prevent facial brown spots and skin discolorations, reduce the appearance of facial red veins and patchiness and slows down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin.
