Wipe the Day Away

Not all makeup wipes are good for your skin. Some have alcohol, which is drying, while others are just damp tissue paper. The 3-in-1 Caring Micellar Cleansing Wipes from Nivea are different. They gently sweep away makeup, sebum and sweat while keeping skin hydrated with vitamin E, and are gentle enough for the delicate eye area. They’re $10.90 for a pack of 25 sheets, from Cold Storage, Giant, Guardian, Fairprice, Watsons and major retail stores.

Try a No-surgery Facelift

Tighten loose jowls and make smile lines smoother at Amaris B. Clinic. The aesthetic clinic’s N-Cog Skin Lifting treatment, which takes 20-30min, involves the insertion of polydioxanone threads into the skin via tiny incisions. The threads, which will be absorbed by the body over time, are said to stimulate collagen production and lift facial contours with little irritation or inflammation. Local anesthesia is applied to minimise discomfort. Results may last up to 1½ years. Call 6536-4211 for enquiries and to make an appointment. At 140 Arab Street.
