In the past, women seemed to hold off skincare until they reach their 30s. It is when their skin enters the ageing cycle and starts to show initial signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles, among others.

 

These days, however, even teenagers are starting to obsess about skincare and anti-ageing, and are turning to treatments like lasers for pigmentation removal among others. This is a good thing because while it’s true that the first signs of ageing show up when you reach 30—mild brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, dull and sallow skin—these changes are often the cumulative effect of the damage caused to your skin in your younger years. All these are bound to show up in your 30s when the reparative abilities of your skin begin to weaken and can no longer hold them off.

 

It goes to show that taking early action can have a significant impact on your skin. Be proactive with your skincare, so you don’t have to react to skin conditions showing up later in life. All you need are prevention and protection protocols, and a little help from science.

 

Laser for Pigmentation Removal

Laser treatments for pigmentation are widely available in Singapore. These are designed to treat age spots and freckles that develop as we age and due to excessive sun exposure.

 

A series of appropriate treatments can help lighten, if not completely remove pigmentation with minimal downtime or discomfort.

 

Another option to laser pigmentation removal is the Revlite Laser—a non-invasive treatment that removes brown age spots, freckles, melasma, and lentigo, among others. It also helps boost collagen production, resulting in the minimised appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

 

Healthsprings Glow Cream can help you to lighten scars blemishes and pigmentation too.

 

Healthsprings skincare range is now available on Shopee and products can be delivered straight to your doorstep.

 

 

What follows are some of the practical steps you can take to combat wrinkly skin:

 

5 Ways to Reduce and Prevent Fine Lines & Wrinkles

  1. Quit Smoking

It’s never easy, but knowing that cigarette smoke can cause wrinkles should at least make you think twice about smoking. The smoke damages your collagen—the protein that gives your skin its volume and elasticity; the nicotine in cigarettes, on the other hand, causes your blood vessels to constrict, limiting the amount of oxygen and nutrients that get to your skin.

 

  1. Eat Vitamin & Antioxidant-Rich Food

As the old saying goes, “you are what you eat,” and in terms of how your skin ages, this is particularly true. Several studies show that foods that are high in vitamins and antioxidant content can help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. These include citrus fruits, berries, prunes, nuts, and oily fish with high omega-3 fatty acid content.

 

  1. Stay Hydrated

Your body requires water for almost every function. It uses water to flush out toxins from your system, regulate your body temperature and keep your skin hydrated from the inside. If possible, drink two litres of water a day or more, as necessary.

 

  1. Protect Yourself from the Sun

As earlier mentioned, overexposure to the sun can damage your skin, resulting in premature ageing and wrinkles. Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 when you head out. For added protection, avoid going outside between 10 am and 2 pm when the sun is at its peak, and wear a wide brim hat and sunglasses with UV protection.

 

  1. Love Your Skin

Giving your skin the love it deserves is summed up in the following steps:

— Wear moisturisers

— Be gentle on your skin

— Get enough sleep, and

— Try sleeping on your back.

As it turns out, your sleeping position could also contribute to your dreaded wrinkles. For instance, you can get wrinkles on your cheek when you sleep on your side and your forehead if you sleep face-down.

 

Never Too Late to Prevent Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Even when you’re already showing signs of premature skin ageing, you can still benefit from taking these steps and particularly from undergoing laser for pigmentation removal. If fine lines and wrinkly skin bother you, you can consult a dermatologist to assess the right course of treatment for you.

 

At Healthsprings Group, we offer a range of non-invasive procedures for smoothing out wrinkles, tightening skin, and improving your overall skin condition.

For many, acne, what was once thought of as a mere part of adolescence that would soon come to pass, persists well into adulthood. It affects an estimated 85% of people at some point in their lives. Adult acne is more common than what we thought.

 

As someone who has suffered from acne, you would know all too well that acne treatments don’t come cheap, not to mention the number of trips you have to make to an aesthetic clinic or women’s health clinic.  In between treating blemishes that are already on your face and preventing them from coming back, having acne is an ongoing battle. Acne can leave acne scars and there are different types of acne scars too!

 

This would have probably prompted you to look into home remedies to treat your acne and the Internet is overflowing with suggestions ranging from natural cures to lifestyle changes. How do they fare in terms of being an acne solution?

 

Home Remedies for Acne Treatment

Natural Acne Treatments

 

Baking Soda – A facial mask made with baking soda and water, mixed together to make a paste, might work for congested skin as it softens blackheads and unclogs the pores.

 

Apple Cider – This vinegar is regarded as nature’s astringent that can balance the pH level of your skin, making it less oily and dry.

 

Honey – A time-honoured remedy for sore throat, honey is known to soothe acne and acne scars as well.

 

Tea Tree Oil – A miracle antiseptic, tea tree oil, renowned for its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, is said to be an effective acne treatment.

 

Aloe Vera – Prized for its burn-relieving properties, aloe vera is known for acne treatment and even for minimising the appearance of scars.

 

 

 

Lifestyle Changes to Treat Acne

 

✓ Eat a balanced diet and if possible, add anti-acne foods into your meals: almonds, blueberries, and avocados to name a few.

 

✓ Get enough sleep to give your body the rest it needs and your acne the time to heal—and of course, remove your makeup before going to bed.

 

✓ Be gentler on your skin by going makeup-free. Makeup contains ingredients that could further aggravate your acne.

 

✓ Contrary to the idea that sweating can make your acne worse, it can actually help unblock your pores by making you sweat! Just make sure to wash your face right after working out.

 

✓ Stay hydrated. Drinking two litres a day of water or more as needed can help skin dryness which triggers excess oil production and further contribute to acne.

 

✓ Did you know that the amount of oil in your skin is directly influenced by stress? To minimise your acne, look into managing your stress as well.

 

 

How Effective Are These Home Remedies?

 

These home remedies may work for an occasional minor pimple and can be used as preventive measures, but have not been proven to have an appreciable effect on acne breakouts.

 

The foundation of your battle against acne should be proven acne medications and treatments, with these natural remedies acting as supplementation. You’ll save yourself a whole lot of time, disappointment, frustration, and even money by seeing a skin doctor in Singapore before determining your next steps.

 

A dermatologist or doctor can prescribe medications that will work for your case specifically. When visiting an aesthetic clinic, you may also be advised to undergo aesthetic treatments to address your acne. Our doctors can administer acne treatments and laser treatment for pigmentation to reduce the appearance of acne scars. They also offer safe and effective skincare products to treat minor acne issues and keep them from coming back.

 

There is also several laser treatment e.g. Yellow laser, Co2 Laser, Revlite Laser available at Healthsprings to help reduce your acne scars.

 

If you are looking for a women’s health clinic or lady doctors in Singapore , look no further. We offer treatments for woman done by female doctors.

Loose or sagging skin can be frustrating, and it can have a negative impact on your self-esteem too!

 

While we often relate it to growing old, losing the natural firmness of your skin doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ageing too fast.

 

In some cases, it can also be caused by internal/external factors that come with one’s lifestyle — pushing one to explore his/her options with skin tightening in Singapore.

 

 

The following are some of the reasons that could give rise to sagging skin:

Weight Loss: The extra weight you carry can stretch your skin over time. Therefore, a significant weight loss, especially over a short period of time, may also result in saggy skin.

 

Pregnancy: Loose skin after giving birth is a challenge that many new mums face. These folds of skin are more apparent on the upper arms, waist, and belly.

 

Illness: There are a few medical conditions that cause sagging skin. One of them is the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), a rare, genetic connective tissue disorder that is marked by saggy, doughy, skin, usually on the face.

 

Medication Reaction: Aside from that, there are also certain medications that can decrease your collagen—the protein that keeps your skin looking plump—thus, making it more prone to sagging.

 

Ageing: Of course, ageing. After 20 years old, you produce 1% less collagen every year which can cause sags and wrinkles to develop. It can also cause brown spots to appear on the face and body.

 

 

Home Remedies for Natural Way of Skin Tightening

Loose skin, while difficult to reverse, is not impossible.

 

Did you know that the skin is the most elastic and flexible part of the body? It can adapt and change over time. Therefore, with some effort, sagging and wrinkly skin can improve.

 

From home remedies to skin tightening treatments in Singapore, the ways to restore your youthful skin are already at your fingertips.

 

 

Let’s start with the home remedies you can try to regain your skin’s firmness:

Coconut Oil – Coconut oil is said to have healing properties and can hydrate and moisturise your already damaged skin to prevent further sagging. Use it as a treatment by massaging the oil onto your skin. Leave it overnight and repeat it more often to see visible results.

 

Olive Oil – The use of olive oil as a natural cleanser and moisturiser dates back to Ancient Egyptians. Being rich in vitamin E, olive oil can help tighten your skin and protect it from sun damage.

 

Egg White – It is rich in a protein, albumin, that can help rebuild skin cells and replenish the skin’s elasticity. Use it as an overnight facemask for skin tightening effects.

 

Honey – Closely similar to how egg whites work, honey prevents the sagging of the skin and provides you with smooth and younger-feeling skin. Apply it on your face for at least 15 minutes, rinse, and you’re good to go.

 

Coffee Grounds – Aside from giving you a boost of energy in the morning, it can also delay the signs of skin ageing. Don’t throw your used coffee granules just yet. Use them as a scrub to exfoliate dead skin and reveal healthier, glowing skin.

 

Lemon – More than boosting your immune system, vitamin C also helps promote collagen production. You can use lemon for your detox water and to bathe or rinse your face with. As for the lemon pulp, you can gently rub it on the areas that needed tightening.

 

Cucumber – Just as how they are represented in pop culture, cucumber is another natural skin toner that can help tighten loose skin without any side effects. Like lemon, you can slice the cucumber and add it to your water for drinking and/or for washing your face with.

 

Aloe Vera – Another nature’s wonder, aloe vera is a natural moisturiser that has malic acid, an organic substance which benefits include skin tightening, moisturising, exfoliating, and minimising of wrinkles. You can reap the benefits of aloe vera by extracting its gel from its leaves and spreading it on your skin, leaving it on for at least 15 minutes before rinsing.

 

Papaya – Papaya, the sweet fruit that aids digestion, contains papain, an enzyme that acts not just as a skin tightener but also a skin whitener. It is rich in both vitamin C and A that provides whiter and more supple skin if you use it as a facial mask at least once a week.

 

 

How Effective Are These Home Remedies for Skin Tightening?

Adding home remedies to your skincare routine can be cost-effective. However, it might not work for everyone and there are chances of skin irritations.

 

Moreover, their effects on skin tightening have yet to be scientifically proven and are not as effective as skin tightening treatments you would get in an aesthetic clinic.

 

When it comes to skin tightening, there is a range of aesthetic treatments including skin tightening, non-surgical face contouring, and slimming treatments in Singapore.
