Work From Home (WFH) and hang out with people virtually has become a new normal.

 

 

 

 

As we become less active during this stay-home period, many of us gain weight naturally.

Flu Shot is Now Available in Phase 1

 

 

Influenza is a respiratory illness which is highly contagious. 🤧 As flu viruses are constantly changing, it’s recommended to have flu vaccines at least once a year.

 

stay fit and healthy during coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic.

 

 

Phase 1 of Circuit Breaker is in effect. I am sure many of you are keen to resume your aesthetic procedures.

 

 

Sadly, not everything can be done in this period.

 

 

Aesthetic Treatments Allowed in Phase 1

 

 

 

According to guidelines released by the Ministry of Health, the only treatment for moderate to severe acne, severe or worsening pigmentation disorder, inflammatory skin conditions e.g. eczema, and viral warts can be carried out.

 

As such, below are treatments and procedures that can be carried out during Phase 1 of Circuit breaker classified according to conditions;

 

 

1. Acne

 

 

Types of Acne

 

Recommended Treatments for Acne:

Oral medications, Topical medications, Chemical Peels, Q-Switch Laser and BroadBand Light, Injection for acne cysts

 

 

 

2. Pigmentation

 

Types of pigmentation

 

Liver Spots/ Age Spots: Age spots vary in size and usually appear on areas exposed to the sun, e.g. the face, neck, shoulders, and arms. Age spots are also called sunspots, liver spots and solar lentigines. They are often associated with sun exposure and can appear suddenly as you age.

 

Melasma: Melasma is a common pigmentation disorder affecting Asian skin. Melasma is sometimes referred to as the mask of pregnancy because it is sometimes triggered by an increase in hormones in pregnant women.

 

Freckles: Freckles are flat, light brown circular spots that typically appear on sun-exposed skin and usually a result of genetics. Freckles are more common on the face of poorly pigmented individuals and people with fair skin tone. Youngs kids may develop freckles too as early as 2 years old.

 

Acne Marks (Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks): The red or brown marks that remain after blemishes have healed are caused by pigmentation and are known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks (PIH).

 

 

Recommended Treatments for Pigmentation:

 

Oral medications, Topical medications, Chemical Peels, Q-Switch Laser, Yellow Laser and BroadBand Light

 

 

 

3. Warts

 

 

Warts are caused by many different types of human papillomavirus (HPV).  They can be found on skin or mucus membranes and may occur singly or in groups. The most commonly occur on hands or feet.

 

It is important to remove warts. Though in most cases they are harmless, they can spread to other parts of the body easily.

 

 

Recommended Treatments for Warts:

CO2 laser removal

It is still unknown whether or not these procedures can be performed when Phase 2 comes into effect. We will update you all as soon as these procedures can be done, so stay tuned!

Many people have commented that they have put on weight in the past month while staying at home during this circuit breaker, as they have been eating more snacks while working from home. It is also very easy to order food delivery with just a few taps on the phone, in our foodie nation.

 

 

Coupled with reduced exercise due to the closure of gyms and swimming pools, or lack of motivation – spells a recipe for weight gain. When calorie intake exceeds our output, the excess caloric energy is stored in our body as fats.

 

 

Here are some simple tips to maintain our weight during the circuit breaker.

 

 

Reduce excessive food intake

 

  1. Eat slowly during meal times, and stop when you feel 80% full.

The Okinawans have a trick to avoid overeating – only eat until you feel 80% full. This is a concept that the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew followed. This is because it takes time for our stomach to send signals to our brain that we have eaten enough. It is also good practice to slow down when we eat, chew thoroughly, and savour each mouthful of food before taking the next.

 

  1. The Healthy Plate

Following the “Healthy Plate” concept – where half of your serving plate or bowl consists of vegetables and fruit – ensures that you are getting enough nutrients and vitamins in your diet. It will also be difficult to overload on calories, as vegetables and fruit are full of fibre which contribute to your sensation of fullness, but low in calories.

 

  1. Avoid frequent snacking

If you find yourself heading to the kitchen several times in a day, ask yourself what is the purpose that snacking fulfils for you. Is it because you are bored or stressed? It may be better to have a chat with family or friends, or pick up activities or hobbies that help to relieve stress and occupy your time – such as learning to draw, sing, dance, or anything that you might enjoy.

If you truly feel hungry in between meals, go for healthy snacks such as nuts and fresh fruit.

 

  1. Consume sweetened drinks (such as bubble tea) and alcohol in moderation.

The high caloric content of these drinks easily exceed our caloric requirement and do not provide any meaningful nutrition.

 

 

 

Increase energy expenditure – get moving!

 

 

There are plenty of videos on home-based exercises that we can do during this period, with no additional equipment required. Jogging and brisk walking are also good exercises.

 

Never exercised before? You can start with a short 10 minute session, and slowly increase the duration once you feel ready. Ideally, we should be getting at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise in a week.

 

3 Easy & Quick Workouts at Home:

 

 

 

If you find yourself sitting for long periods of time at home, take a minute every hour or so – to stand up, walk around the room, and stretch.

 

With another few weeks to go before the circuit breaker measures are relaxed, let us start making simple changes so we can maintain our figure and look our best when we are able to meet our friends and colleagues again.

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.
