5 Tips for Controlling Oily Skin

It’s frustrating to wake up finding yet another new zit, or to keep having to use blotting sheets throughout the day. While oily skin is largely influenced by things out of our control, like our genetics and hormones, we can still make a few lifestyle tweaks.

 

With warm and humid weather all year round, especially more so now, we’ve rounded up 5 shine control tips to keep oily skin at bay:

 

#1: Don’t overwash your face

Your skin could be oily because it’s actually dry. Some tend to wash their faces multiple times a day, thinking that doing so will help get rid of excess oil. But when your skin is stripped of oil, it has a tendency to produce even more sebum to make up for the lack of moisture.

 

Generally, washing your face twice a day is good enough for one’s average daily skincare routine. And for those with oily skin, remember to wash right: use a gentle cleanser or one with salicylic acid to fight acne-causing bacteria.

 

After washing, it’s best to use lightweight moisturisers containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin. Those act like “micro sponges” to retain moisture, keeping your skin supple and hydrated while not clogging your pores.

#2: Exfoliate & mask right

Apart from washing your face right, exfoliate consistently with a gentle scrub to get rid of dead skin – just 2-3 times a week will do. Just like how you shouldn’t wash your face too often, the same goes for exfoliating.

 

Facial masks – especially those containing clay or salicylic acid – can help temporarily decrease oil production (as well as stress)!

 

 

#3: Try out a carbon laser peel

This is a non-invasive, no-downtime laser treatment that specifically tackles acne and oily skin. A carbon laser peel uses a carbon cream mask prior to your laser treatment to control sebum production and minimise pore size.

 

The benefits of a carbon laser peel are multifold!

 

  • Reduces acne breakouts and inflammation by controlling sebum production
  • Minimises pore size and unclogs pores 
  • Lightens pigmentation and acne scars 
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Exfoliating effect: removes dead skin cells 
  • Improves skin texture and tone 
  • No downtime

#4: Choose your makeup wisely

Use non-comedogenic makeup products that don’t clog your pores. When in doubt, look for products with lighter textures, or labels that say “oil- control” or “non-comedogenic”.

 

And the golden rule still stands: always remove your makeup thoroughly before you sleep! Sleeping with remnants of makeup on can clog pores, trapping oil and dirt inside, making it a fertile breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria.

#5: Avoid harsh skincare ingredients

The irritation from harsh skincare ingredients actually triggers more oil! 


Specially denatured (SD) alcohol and denatured alcohol are common culprits as they appear to immediately degrease skin and give you a matte finish, but actually erode your skin’s protective surface over the long run. So look out for those on your skincare labels!

 

However, it’s good to note that not all alcohol is bad for your skin. Fatty alcohols, such as cetyl, stearyl, and cetearyl alcohol, are non-irritating and good for dry skin types. 


Hence, it’s important to know the difference between skin-friendly alcohol ingredients and those you should avoid.

Things To Know About Pynocare – The All-Natural Whitening Supplement

There are tons of whitening supplements around – sometimes it’s hard to trust what you see on the market. Hence it’s always good to buy your whitening supplements from a reputable source.

 

If you’ve heard about Pynocare White but you’re not quite sure what it is, we break it down for you: how it works, what it contains, and why it’s good for you.

 


What is Pynocare White?

Pynocare White is an all-natural whitening oral supplement scientifically proven to reduce existing melasma in the body. It contains plant and seaweed extracts for lightening dark spots and reducing pigmentation.

Benefits of Pynocare White

  • Reduces existing pigmentation, lightening dark spots
  • Reduces the appearance of new melasma
  • Protects skin from UV rays and pollution damage
  • Convenient: just 1 softgel capsule twice daily, after meals
  • Safe: a 100% natural supplement without any added preservatives or chemicals

 

How Pynocare Works

Pynocare White works in 3 ways:


Regulates melanin production – Melanin is the pigment that gives our skin its colour. The more the melanin we have, the darker our skin is. By regulating melanin production, Pynocare White helps to reduce the size and intensity of pigmentation.

 

Pynocare White contains the MSCC complex Actisome, a proprietary formulation that contains natural plant and seaweed extracts, with antioxidants 50 times stronger than vitamin C and E.

 

This helps neutralise free radicals, in turn regulating melanin production and reducing existing pigmentation.

Protects your skin from UV damage – Pynocare White also contains the active ingredients D-Saline and Lycoskin. These increase the erythema threshold – meaning that these improve the skin’s ability to tolerate skin reddening due to inflammation from outside triggers such as sunlight –, thereby protecting the skin against UV rays.

 

Moisturises your skin – Lucent P (a type of ceramide derived from rice) inhibits excess melanin formation and improve the skin’s barrier function. This helps the skin to better retain moisture, resulting in better skin texture and smoothness.

Showing appreciation to the main woman in your life should always be done the way your mum would like to receive it. If she’s a foodie, take her out for a nice meal! But if she appreciates beauty, skincare, or just being pampered in general, we’ve got you covered:

 

Hydrating/ Skin-Rejuvenating Facials

Our medical-grade facials help deeply cleanse and hydrate skin, while giving you a good pampering sesh. These facials can be tailored to different skin conditions, be it for acne and oily skin, for pigmentation, or for dull and dehydrated skin.

 

Our facials can also be combined with laser treatments or light therapy for better results.

Skin Tightening Treatments

Ultherapy is one of the most sought-after skin tightening treatments on the market. Essentially, this is a non-invasive ultrasound treatment to boost collagen and tighten skin.

 

How it works: in a nutshell, the ultrasound shots delivered into precise depths of your skin help to stimulate collagen production, gradually lifting and tightening sagging skin over time.

 

Only 1 treatment is needed to obtain improvements that can last at least a year, so this is an efficient treatment for busy mums starved for time!

Dark Eye Circle Treatments

A lot of us tend to be plagued by dark eye circles – but did you know you can laser them away?

 

Don’t worry – it’s nothing like LASIK! It’s a non-surgical, non-invasive laser treatment that targets the undereye area to reduce the appearance of dark eye circles.

 

How it works: first, we cleanse the treatment area to ensure that there is no eye makeup residue; after which we apply a numbing cream to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.

 

After Dr Kok calibrates the laser settings to best suit your skin condition, he will then direct the laser across your undereye area. You might feel a mild prickly sensation, but most patients find it tolerable. The treatment should take about 15-20 minutes.


If lasers aren’t your mum’s thing, we also have eye facials specifically targeting dark eye circles. Click here to learn more!
