Being in Singapore has its many pros, not many cons, but one disinclination that I have with this country is the weather. To many westerners hail from colder parts of the world like the United Kingdom are often thrilled with this tropical climate. But for those who had spent their youth in Singapore, they will know that this climate is the worse for pubertal skin or oily or acne skin types. This hot and humid weather means bacteria and fungi can flourish easily. And when there is an pimple or any form of skin injury, scarring takes forever to heal from the scars compared to cold climate (yes, the skin heals faster in the cold).
Fortunately enough, Singapore is a highly convenient country with a significant number of services and shopping available. Just as long as you are willing to put in the extra effort, starting from the basic skincare routine, you will be on the way to better and clearer skin, and perfectly flawless skin is indeed achievable.
Start from the Inside- The Gut
Many studies have shown that the living organisms in the gut affect our life in a much more significant way than we had previously viewed. The gut flora, or human microbiota, is the reason for some people who seem to gain weight despite dieting extensively. There is a good reason to believe the gut flora is also affecting the body’s function and metabolism and the health of the skin. Now you can get Vivomixx, from Singapore’s good pharmacy, Guardian. Vivomixx, which is the only clinically proven probiotic in the market out there and it requires refrigeration to ensure that you are getting the alive probiotics that can kickstart and multiple immediately when ingested.
Cleanse and cleanse away
First step: Clean your face twice a day. It is not as important if your face is clear of acne. But once you have acne and oily skin, you will need to clear the debris and gunk that is feeding the bacteria and other nasty micro-organisms. It is important that it is not overdoing it, so use a gentle but effective one.
Sleeping is my Beauty Secret
As tired as it sounds, sleep is the most crucial part of great skin. Sleep is directly related to stress control and the level of cortisol circulating in the body. Cortisol overdrive is the culprit to all modern-day problems. This hormone was designed to help us boost our body into fight mode, so we could better save ourselves from life-threatening physical events. Take away the animal killers and murders, work and lack of sleep are doing the same thing to stimulate the stress hormone, taking a toll on our overall health. And the best way to deal with it is to let your body rest and recuperate in sleep mode.
Seek a Professional Aesthetic Doctor
You never need to feel alone. Doctors are trained to take care of you. When you find that everything is too overwhelming to handle, and whatever is the problem, do seek professional help. No one is going to judge, and there are probably much worse cases out there that a licensed doctor has already seen. Doctors have also spent years honing their skills in making sure the treatments they offer are safe and are equipped with skills to handle whatever complication that may arise. Singapore is the centre of medical excellence, and you can find just about any medical speciality there is. For skin issues, seek a dermatologist or an aesthetic/cosmetic doctor. Benefits of an aesthetic doctor are that they are usually more well-versed in the tricks and hacks to the latest cutting-edge technologies out there that is to offer.
