I’m the kinda girl who don’t like spending too much time dolling myself up before heading out of the house. If I could, I would rather not put anything on my face (except eyeliner – can’t live without that), slip into my outfit of the day and head out in 15 mins, tops. To help and hasten this hassle-free daily routine of getting ready, I do the following beauty rituals on a monthly basis.
Monthly facial treatments at IDS Clinic
Right after facial – some marks on my forehead from squeezing to unclog the whiteheads. The marks usually disappear really quickly in an hour or so…and ignore my sparse lashes. I was due to have a new set replaced.
Good and glowing skin is a must so that I can put as little coverage on my face as possible. Some days I go with just sunscreen and loose powder.
My favourite treatment of all at IDS Clinic is the Hydro Therapeutics Treatment. I’m usually very careful with facial treatments because my skin is so sensitive to them. Some, in fact most treatments cause me to break out and I’m better off not having done the treatment at all. It’s so frustrating to do a facial treatment expecting my skin to look better, only to end up having huge angry acne pimples instead from products unsuitable to my skin. So happy that I’ve got no such issues at all with my treatments at IDS Clinic.
The Hydro Therapeutics Treatment is a 4-step treatment to thoroughly cleanse and brighten your face. All the 4 steps are super gentle and comfortable, yet effective and really helps get rid of your dead skin cells, dirt and grime on your face. The best technology combined with effective skin products are used to get the best results from your treatment. I love how it unclogs the pores and makes my skin super super soft and glowy after. The good news is, the glow and smoothness lasts for days and days. Every treatment feels like I’m giving my skin a good clean up and overhaul and I always leave the clinic feeling like I’ve got the best skin in the world.
IDS Clinic is at Novena Specialist Centre, 8 Sinaran Drive #05-07/10. You can call 6568 3555 for your appointment. First time customers get 50% off their first treatment!
Eyelash extensions at Flutters Lash Parlour
I’ve been going to Flutters for eyelash extensions for months now and I still can’t stop raving. It saves me so much time; no mascara needed and no having to stick on false lashes. My eyes look dressed their best all the time. Haha. I’ve recommended quite a few of my friends there and they all share the same love as me now. We all have the same reasons for loving our lash extensions from there – it’s so comfortable and natural looking. I’ve even had people ask which mascara I was using! I’ve not taken a break from these extensions now for at least 6 months and I’m happy to note that my own, natural lashes are all intact. The lashes from Flutters mostly fall out on their own, without taking my real lashes with them. I guess one day when I do decide not to have extensions anymore, at least I still have all my real lashes to fall back on.
Flutters is located at 15 Duxton Road. You can call 6220 0920 for an appointment.
Manicures at J Nail Studio
I’ve just formed the habit of getting my nails done and this is the first set of manicure I’ve done in a very long while. They’re inspired by Chanel’s signature tweed look and I can’t stop glancing down at my nails every once in awhile to admire the art on my fingers. I got them done at J Nail Studio and they’ve got 400 over gel colours from Japan, so you can basically go crazy with the designs that you want.
J Nail Studio is located at Bukit Timah Plaza #b1-51. You can call 6463 1885 for an appointment.
So, this all pretty much sums up what I do every month to look presentable and get out of the house quickly. Do share some of your beauty rituals with me too!
