Want to Shine?
For a glowing complexion, try Prive Aesthetics’ Aqua Shine Facetherapy for $68 (UP $250). This deepcleansing treatment gives you a soothing facial massage followed by gentle exfoliation and vacuuming up of dead skin cells with a patented Hydro Peel device. Pores are then manually unclogged, and special growth-factor serums are applied using an electrophoresis technique to stimulate skintissue renewal. Finally, a customised mask firms and hydrates. Find out more at Prive Aesthetics, #03-02 Palais Renaissance (tel: 9656-5380).
No More Parched Skin
Very dry, reactive and irritated skin often has a damaged moisture barrier. Physiogel Calming Relief A.I. Cream ($29.90 for 50ml) helps repair the moisture barrier to relieve itchiness, irritation and dryness. Suitable for face and body, the cream doesn’t clog pores and is free of preservatives, fragrances and colorants that could trigger sensitivity or allergic reactions. Available at Guardian, Watsons and Unity pharmacies.
Only the Best
Exquisite jewellery by Mouawad, one-of-a-kind accessories at Patch Magic, luxury watches from Breitling, dinner at Frunatic, and drinks at Artisan Cellars… Palais Renaissance is the ideal mall for people with sophisticated tastes to select the finest curated gifts for their dearest ones. It’s also where you can have those all-important dates over dinner and drinks with your significant other, or pamper yourself with a new outfit, new hairstyle, or spa and aesthetic treatments.
Slimming the TCM Way
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) believes that a person’s overall well-being is an important consideration in any slimming treatment. That’s why Slim Couture’s TCM-based Divine Slim signature treatment focuses on stimulating blood circulation, qi, and the digestive system to improve metabolism and detoxification. Each session involves guasha (scraping the skin with a blunt-edged tool), cupping using in-house suction tools, and advice on nutrition. Visit #02-05 GSH Plaza or call 6534-0747 for more details.
For Sparkling Eyes
Crystal Brown, Twinkle Brown and Sparkling Black are the colour options for Bausch + Lomb’s new Lacelle Grace Daily disposable cosmetic contact lenses ($60 for 30 lenses). They add sparkle while keeping eyes comfortable with their high water content and moisturising methacrylic acid. The brand’s Microencapsulation Technology secures the pigments within the lens to prevent them from coming into direct contact with your eyes. At selected optical shops; go to www.lacelle.sg for details.

Freeze the Fat Away
Mirage Aesthetic’s Fat Freeze procedure ($68 for one session, $128 for two) uses cryolipolysis technology to target fat in specific areas. In this non-invasive treatment, suction plates apply controlled cooling to parts of the body where you want to get rid of fat. This results in the fat cells breaking down and being naturally eliminated by your body. Contact Mirage Aesthetic at #04-08 Orchard Parade Hotel, tel: 6262-3358.
