111Skin Meso Infusion Overnight Micro Mask ($152.02 for a pack of 4)
It's tough to keep your skin looking its best when you have to juggle work and family. This is why sleeping packs and overnight masks like this one that repairs your skin while you sleep are so popular amongst time-strapped Singaporean women. After all, skin does the best healing and renewing of cells overnight, so overnight masks are the perfect night time skincare essential. 111skin is a line developed by a plastic surgeon, Dr Alexandrides MD, whose goal was to come up with a skincare range that will help his patients heal better after cosmetic procedures. Reap instantaneous brightening, hydrating and smoothing benefits with this mask’s mix of Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. The brand even uses a special self-dissolving micro structure to help the active ingredients penetrate the epidermis for maximum results.
Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder ($123.26)
Creating long-lasting makeup makeup in itself is tricky and this is only made harder to perfect in our hot and humid climate. This is why Singaporean women tend to reach for mattifying powders like this one for their base makeup to last from corporate meetings to cocktail hour. If you like to touch up your makeup with a powder without clogging pores or making the skin look too matte, Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder is the perfect choice. The non-drying formula helps to banish shine while leaving skin luminous.
Slip Silk Eye Mask ($55.83)
Made with 100 per cent mulberry silk, this mask keeps the light out and leaves no space for your eyes to flutter open if you wake up in the middle of the night and you will be less tempted to scroll through your phone or peek at the clock – bad habits that can keep you up at night.
Nurse Jamie Beauty Stamp ($67.86)
While microneedling may sound like a terrifying treatment due to the ‘needle’ in its name, in recent times it has gained massive popularity amongst the beauty community especially with the endorsement of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Anniston. The beauty stamp is a micro-dermal impression tool that is covered with tiny needles (0.2mm) that gently prick the uppermost layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and help with the absorption of your skin care products. There is a technique to this - you should always roll vertically, horizontally and diagonally over your face for no more than two minutes and you can do it three to five times a day.
Also, you can use any serum or oil with your beauty stamp and hence tailor the treatment to your skin type. Before you freak out, know that the needles on the at-home devices shouldn’t be painful because they are finer than those used in the skin clinics.
