It’s the time of the year where Singapore turns into something like the Genting Highlands or Silent Hill, but instead of low temperatures and foggy weather, what we get here are high temperatures and a haze that takes very long to go away.
The haze can be pretty annoying for many Singaporeans, and for many of us, the dust and smoke in the air causes a lot of problems to our skin, and today, I’m here to share with you a short skincare routine you can follow to continue looking flawless through this haze.
Step 1: Cleanse
After a whole day of running around outdoors, it is important to cleanse your skin properly ensuring that all the dust and dirt accumulated on the surface of your skin is removed thoroughly.
However, you do not want to overdo that and strip your skin of all its moisture.
Merbliss’s Ruby Scrub Facial Cleansing Foam purifies, calms and softens skin surface by removing impurities from your pores and accumulated sebum.
It contains vitamin E scrub beads that bursts and deliver moisture to your skin while cleansing. Nourishing and energising your skin as you cleanse.
Step 2: Exfoliate and Tone
Always remember to exfoliate your skin in case of impurities still lodged deep inside your pores. The cleansing step doesn’t always cleanse everything away.
CCLIMGLAM’s All About Pure Toner is a peeling toner that helps to gently exfoliate your skin with AHA, BHA and PHA ingredients present in the product. AHA, BHA and PHA ingredients are powerful chemical exfoliants that work towards cleaning your skin deeply. They are key to flawless skin with minimum irritation or acne.
Step 3: Hydrate
It is important to always keep your skin hydrated, just like how you would drink water to keep yourself hydrated on a hot day.
If your skin isn’t hydrated properly, it will be left vulnerable to the extra dirt and dust floating around in the air.
Infused with a highly-enriched bottle of ampoule, Merbliss’s Wedding Dress Hydra Ampoule Mask provides intense moisture to your skin. The mask enhances your skin moisture barrier while replenishing nutrients to your skin. The mask also provides skin balance and vitalizes your skin.
Step 4: Soothe
Now that you’ve cleansed your skin of impurities and hydrated your skin to strengthen your skin barrier, it’s time to soothe your skin after exposing it to irritants for the whole day.
This step protects your skin and also restores your skin condition.
Nightingale’s Teatamin Sleeping Mask contains concentrated tea tree extract that calms stimulated and troubled skin immediately. This sleeping mask improves your skin tone and balances the oil and hydration levels of your skin while you’re asleep. It recovers your skin condition overnight and leaving you with a clean and clear skin in the morning.
In the morning, you can switch the Sleeping Mask to Dr Jart+’s V7 Shining Light, a base cream that brings light and radiance to your skin with the 7 vitamins it contains. This cream instantly brightens your complexion and helps to smooth your skin texture while protecting your skin from harmful UV rays.
As we journey to achieving flawless skin in this haze, don’t forget to also wear a mask whenever you’re out! Protect your lungs from the dust and smoke in the air!
