If you’ve been ashamed of your irritated or sensitive skin, we thought we’d let you in on a little statistic that’ll show you have nothing to worry about, nor are you alone: One in two women in Singapore experience sensitive skin, whether on their face or body.

And we get it, buying products that are gentle enough to soothe and keep your skin hydrated might be a bit of a challenge. That’s why we’re introducing you to a great option that’s popular amongst the Koreans, connoisseurs of great skincare themselves.

Presenting: Physiogel. 

If Physiogel looks like a no-nonsense skincare product that does the trick, it’s only because it genuinely is.

Backed by dermatologists, Physiogel carries a full range of skincare products for both your face and body and caters directly to women who have sensitive skin.

And we’ve got some good news for all of you. While once upon a time you could only purchase the brand’s most popular product, Physiogel Calming Relief A.I. Cream, from a doctor or hospital pharmacy, it is now made available in major retail pharmacies nationwide.

That’s right, at the HER WORLD x NUYOU x Physiogel Skincare ‘Holistic Care for Sensitive Skin’ workshop, guests were able to purchase a tube of the cream that has been redesigned and repackaged.

Just why should you celebrate, you ask? Well, that tube packs a cream that has been clinically proven an essential for sensitive skin. The formula contains the brand’s unique BioMimic Technology that helps to not just moisturise your skin, but also repair and strengthen your skin’s moisture barrier.

And what does all that science speak mean for you? Easy. Visibly healthier and less sensitive skin that is protected from external irritants.

On top of that, the brand’s products contain a PEA (Palmitamide MEA) soothing complex; an ingredient that has anti-irritant properties, which means saying goodbye to itchy, red or dry skin – and that’s clinically proven. Studies were carried out on more than 2,400 patients who experienced significant improvements in their skin’s dryness, itchiness and redness.

We told you it really is a no-nonsense product!

That’s not all, though. Another product you can expect to see on the shelves of all pharmacies worldwide is the newly launched Calming Relief Anti redness serum that promises to soothe your skin.
We all know that a serum targets and penetrates the deeper layers of your skin. So for the women out there with dry, sensitive and redness-prone skin, expect your face to feel nourished!
The serum has been clinically proven to reduce redness and soothe irritated skin immediately, leaving your skin feeling hydrated and fresh. You know what else? It’s suitable for use under your makeup, so you don’t have to worry about layering your products!
The formula, it goes without saying, is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, contains no colorants, perfume or preservatives – essentials for a product catered for sensitive skin.
And since the light gel texture of the serum makes gliding the product on your skin a dream, we thought we’d impart some massaging techniques because, well, why not?
As Beauty Trainer Lily Loh taught us at the Physiogel Skincare Series event, take a pea-sized amount of product and dab it onto your forehead, cheeks, chin and neck.
Then, work from the center of your face to the outer areas, starting with your eyes. With gentle hands, work the product in a circular motion upwards and outwards.
And after working on your forehead, nose bridge and cheeks (don’t forget to bring the product all the way to the sides of your face!), finish off your massage by working the product across and down your neck simultaneously.

There you have it, ladies; it’s time to get moving. 

Physiogel is available in all major retail pharmacies nationwide.
