1 Don’t Get Hair Products On Your Face

You know you need to sleep with a bare face so skin can breathe and repair itself, but no matter how tired you are, try not to wash your face while you take your steaming hot bath. Hot water can strip natural oils from your skin, taking moisture away.

If you do wash your face in the shower, do ensure that you use cold water. Also try not to get shampoo or conditioner on your face as these are meant for your hair and scalp. Ensure that everything is rinsed off your faces so you don’t get clogged pores.

2 Cool Your Skincare

Keeping your products in the fridge not only extends the life of your pricey purchases, the chill feels refreshing and closes pores to seal in skincare benefits.

3 Don’t Let Your Skin Dry Out

Did you know that hydration is key to youthful-looking skin? Adequately moisturised skin clears a plethora of skin problems and is important at any age. Hydrated skin is plumper, more radiant, and has fewer lines and wrinkles, setting a good foundation for makeup application. If you’re constantly bugged by a dry complexion, La Clinic experts can help identify root causes and treat it with Restylane Skinboosters, a dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid that’s safe and biologically compatible with the human body.

4 Prevention Before Cure

The sad thing is women in their 30s will already start to show some signs of ageing – cue dryness, wrinkles, dark circles and other symptoms that make you look tired and older! It’s better to start on your prevention programme early instead of waiting till you reach perimenopausal stage around age 40, when ageing is accelerated. (40 per cent of skin’s ageing happens within the first year of menopause).

Where ageing is concerned, a lot of women are in denial until it is too late to reverse the signs of ageing. It’s best to seek help early, and La Clinic’s experts can consult with you on the best prevention measures to maintain your skin’s beauty.

Achieve Flawless Skin

For smooth and flawless skin, one of the most popular procedures is the Glycolic Peel and Medlite Laser Combo. It’s good for beginners or regular dermatology patients, and it takes just 45 minutes, so patients can pop in during lunchtime. Forget all notions of chemical peels being harsh. This treatment employs a light fruit peel to brighten complexion while minimising lines, pigmentation and scarring, and a doctor can customise the strength of the treatment to achieve the results you want. After the treatment, an aesthetic assistant will remove softened black and white heads, improving the smoothness of your skin. To further boost the effects of the peel, Medlite Q-Switched lasers break up pigmentation clusters with light energy for a more even-toned visage. It also firms and tightens pores and skin, giving you a refreshed and youthful look. The treatment can be done individually and provides good results, but when done in combination, the results are more dramatic.

Besides the Glycolic Peel and Medlite Laser Combo, La Clinic also has a wide range of state of the art technology to tackle your problems, such as HIFU, Lasers, IPL, Nanoinfusion, Restylane Skinboosters and other techniques to customise a program for each patient.

Before you decide on any treatment, always seek professional diagnosis for your skin. The usual concerns for women are: Pigmentation, scarring, pores, pimples, dullness, uneven skin tone, all of which can be improved. At La Clinic, bespoke programs can be customised by the team of experienced doctors to deliver the results you are looking for. Most procedures are quick, painless, and require little to no downtime. Doing consistent facial treatments such as lasers and chemical peels as prevention measures at an earlier stage is an investment into your skin’s future, and can save you the hassle of using expensive makeup to hide your flaws.

About La Clinic

Having experienced bad skin herself in her 20s and early 30s, Dr Juliana decided to take a different approach to most aesthetic centres when she founded La Clinic. In addition to treatments that improve skin from the outside, La Clinic also addresses issues from within through health screenings, early detection programmes, nutritional supplementation and more.

Her brush with spotty skin helps the friendly doctor identify keenly with patients, many of whom are beauty savvy but troubled by issues like uneven pigmentation, scarring, large pores and pimples. Thankfully, these can be fixed, and Dr Juliana advises patients to get treatment early for the best results.
