IF YOUR SKIN TROUBLES AREN’T QUITTING, WHY SHOULD YOU? DON’T GIVE UP JUST YET COS FEMALE’S BEAUTY EDITOR HAS GOT YOUR BACK.
Q“I SWEAT REALLY EASILY AND NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY, MY BODY BECOMES DAMP ALL DAY. NOT ONLY DOES THIS GIVE ME BAD BODY ODOUR, BUT I SOMETIMES GET ITCHY IN CERTAIN AREAS LIKE MY UPPER BACK AND BETWEEN MY THIGHS. ANY ADVICE? IT’S DRIVING ME CRAZY!” – Grace Ping, Tax agent
AIt’s very likely that you have more sweat glands than the average person due to your genes but get it checked if it’s troubling your mind. In the meantime, shower three times a day and use an anti-bacterial shower gel like this one; it contains tea tree oil that can wash away harmful bacteria and fungus from the skin that thrive in moist conditions. Additionally, powder your body all the way from your neck to your feet as that will help keep you fresh and dry!

Q“I USED TO THINK THAT IT’S A HASSLE TO INCLUDE A TONER IN MY SKINCARE ROUTINE. BUT I THINK IT’S HIGH-TIME FOR ME TO TRY IT OUT. WHERE DO I EVEN START?” – Najlia Wan, Marine biologist
AThere are many types of toners out there that are rich in ingredients which hydrate and balance skin’s natural state by mimicking its pH levels so you’re definitely missing out if you don’t have one in your skincare regimen. Mamonde Education manager, Venyce Lim says that picking one isn’t as easy as just deciding on which scent you like better or ingredient you’d like to try out. You need to know your skin type to find out the right texture of toner your skin needs. If you feel that you have combination skin, she suggests picking the Aqua Peel toner that gently exfoliates dull, dead skin to reveal a brighter complexion. MAMONDE AQUA PEEL TONER, RM85
