PrintAnswer our monthly question and the three best answers will each receive­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ a ticket to the Go Red for Women Luncheon 2014 worth $130 each!

Go Red for Women Luncheon 2014

The Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF) presents Go Red for Women Luncheon – Eat, Drink, Be Healthy, on 29th March 2014 (Saturday), 11:30am to 3pm, at the Mandarin Oriental Singapore. Heart disease and stroke combined is the No. 1 killer of women in Singapore, yet the 2013 survey conducted by SHF revealed that only 11% of Singaporean women are aware of this fact. Thus, SHF hopes to educate women on the essential heart facts in a light-hearted yet informative way.

Ticket price is $130 per person/$1,000 per table (eight persons). Participants can look forward to exclusive luxury beauty door gifts, raffle draw prizes worth more than $2,000, and a four-course healthy lunch by renowned hotel chefs.

February Winners

feb winnerQuestion of the month: “Tell us, what is your effective skin cleansing routine?”

February winners will each receive­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ a set of Simple Spotless Skin Range worth $52.70/set!

As I have oily skin, I tend to wash my face three times a day. The foamy cleanser I used helped to remove the oil, but it also stripped the moisture off. This resulted in my skin feeling oily again soon after. I had to keep using a facial blotter to dab my face and touch up with compact powder to reduce the oiliness every other hour. Over the years, I have learned that a gentle cleanser is actually more suitable for blemished and sensitive skin. Today, my daily cleansing routine includes a cleansing oil to remove the sunblock and makeup as the first step. Following that, I use a pH-balanced cleanser and rinse off thoroughly with water. This two-step cleansing is effective and helps to maintain a healthy skin. My skin no longer feels oily often. In fact, I do not need to use facial blotter at all.

Instead of using makeup remover, I use baby wet wipes (fragrance-free ones) to remove all my makeup. Thereafter, I use a mild cleansing wash to remove any excess grime and oil. Once a week, I use a mild beaded exfoliator cleanser to wash my face as it helps me look more radiant and bright.

If I have makeup on, I use a gentle cleanser or makeup remover, which doesn’t have alcohol or fragrance (these can dry skin out). Next, I use a gentle cleanser to wash, but not scrub, my face before rinsing with plenty of warm water and patting dry. I do not use hot water, as it can remove the skin’s natural oils. Once a week, I exfoliate to get rid of flaky skin cells and make my skin look clearer. I avoid products that have alcohol, soap, acid and fragrance, which may aggravate or dry the skin. I look for calming ingredients like aloe, chamomile, green tea polyphenols and oats. The fewer ingredients in a skincare product, the safer it is for my skin.
