STEAM AND CLEAN
Proper cleansing is essential. Start by steaming the face for three minutes with a mix of aromatherapy oils such as lavender and bergamot to relax and calm big night nerves! Then, use a cream or milky cleanser for sensitive /dry skin and a gel cleanser for oily/combination skin. Rinse skin thoroughly and pat dry.
EXFOLIATE AND TONE
Exfoliating revitalises circulation and leaves skin fresh and clean. Using hands, mix exfoliant with warm water before applying to face. Rinse thoroughly, then apply an alcohol-free toner to minimise large pores and bring skin’s naturally protective acid mantle back to the surface.
MASK & MOISTURISE
Apply a mask to give skin a quick pick-me-up. Use a clay-based mask to deep cleanse oily complexions or a moisturising mask to revive dry skin. For combination skin, use the appropriate mask for each area. After thoroughly rinsing off mask, apply moisturiser and eye cream.

Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond. The scent of a fragrance allows you to be creative and individual, to create an alter ego or choose a particular persona - you choose who you would like to be that day.
Asia remains the dominant player in global skincare sales, with consumers across the continent “obsessed with” seeking to achieve flawless skin that is clear, luminous and seemingly transparent.
