If your skin has been acting out more than usual, feeling oily and dehydrated simultaneously, but also breaking out, it’s not you—it’s the weather. While it’s always summer in Singapore, some months are hotter than others. The soaring temperatures along with high humidity lead to increased sweat and sebum production making it the perfect recipe for clogged pores and inflamed pimples whether they’re on your face, chest, back or butt. Wearing a mask indoors also means increased heat and moisture for the lower half of your face, which could potentially lead to more breakouts.
The key to keeping skin healthy and refreshed, with breakouts at bay is adding the right ingredients and targeted facial treatments to your skincare routine. Here are the skin savers you didn’t know you needed.
This ingredient has a wide range of benefits from brightening skin and reducing inflammation to strengthening the skin barrier and softening the look of fine lines. But it is its ability to reduce sebum production that truly earns it a place in your summer skincare routine. It is found in generous amounts in the ALL 1N ONE Serum where, along with other skin nourishing ingredients, it helps prevent moisture loss, reduces redness and speeds up healing. The serum is lightweight and absorbed in seconds, making it easy to use under your moisturiser in your AM and PM routines.
Fun fact: high temperatures and humidity also leach moisture from the skin. Indoors, air-conditioning dehydrates skin. All these factors can lead to an imbalance of moisture and sebum, leading to breakouts. Sodium hyaluronate pulls moisture from the air into the deeper layers of the skin to help keep it hydrated. This also signals the sebaceous glands to chill on the oil production, which in turn reduces chances of breakouts. This ingredient also strengthens the moisture barrier and leaves skin plump and glowing. Add it to your skincare routines with the Hyarum Skin Booster, and your skin will thank you for it.
Along with adding the right ingredients to your skincare routine, treating your skin to targeted facial treatments will also help keep skin calm and healthy, while keeping those breakouts in check.
Balance, hydrate and brighten skin with this facial that tackles dead skin, helps deep clean pores and restores hydration. A solution of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) gently exfoliates the top layer of dead skin, while a solution of beta hydroxy acid along with powerful suction removes dirt, sebum and debris from deep within the pores minus any redness or irritation, leaving skin feeling rejuvenated. Finally, the moisture-sebum balance is restored with a skin nourishing serum that is delivered with a rotating tip to ensure it is better absorbed into the skin.
Customised to your skin’s unique needs, it is perfect for any skin type or condition. It gently refines pores, evens out skin tone and restores moisture. After a thorough cleanse that eliminates dead skin, a serum blend customised to your needs, is infused into the skin with a medical grade jet device. The device uses high-pressure oxygen at pico-size to help improve the penetration of the serum. Skin is instantly feels soft and comfortable and looks dewy.
This facial helps tackle acne while boosting collagen production. During the facial, intense pulsed light (IPL) at different wavelengths is emitted into the skin to treat different skin concerns. The light energy kills the acne-causing bacteria and reduces the appearance of red, inflamed pimples. The same light energy also triggers the skin’s natural healing process to minimise redness and boost collagen production to make skin healthy, bright and supple.
