In to­day’s harsh en­vi­ron­men­tal changes

“For that rea­son, we are con­fi­dent Mu­rad City Skin Duo will be a favourite with

its unique for­mu­la­tion.”

The skin is the body’s largest or­gan and our first point of con­tact with the world around us. It moder­ates tem­per­a­ture, dam­ag­ing sun­light and harm­ful chem­i­cals. Skin also gen­er­ates an­tibac­te­rial sub­stances, which pre­vent in­fec­tion as well as pro­motes vi­ta­min D con­ver­sion to cal­cium to strengthen your bones.

A healthy skin care rou­tine can be re­flected through its outer beauty and can also in­di­cate your health sta­tus. There­fore, tak­ing care of your skin and de­vel­op­ing a healthy skin care rou­tine is im­por­tant, be­cause it can help this or­gan do its job bet­ter and longer.

Over the years, the global en­vi­ron­ment has changed dras­ti­cally which also re­sulted in changes in women’s roles. To­day, more women are in the work­force, spend­ing more time out­doors and thus their skin gets more af­fected by ra­di­a­tion, pol­lu­tion and other bac­te­ria.

Every day, skin is as­saulted by en­vi­ron­men­tal ag­gres­sors that can cause vis­i­ble signs of ag­ing: blue light from dig­i­tal de­vices, pol­lu­tion from cars and smog, in­frared ra­di­a­tion from warm­ing de­vices like stoves or mi­crowaves, and of course UV rays from the sun.

Un­der­stand­ing the de­sires and needs of women to­day, Mu­rad launched its new skin-care prod­ucts City Skin Duo to pro­tect against all five en­vi­ron­men­tal ag­gres­sors, in­clud­ing dig­i­tal de­vices, in­frared ra­di­a­tion, UVA and UVB Rays, and pol­lu­tion. Aside from pro­tec­tions, it also detox­i­fies your skin from past dam­ages.

Med­i­cal Sdn Bhd, said at the launch of Mu­rad City Skin Duo: “Mu­rad skin care has been con­nect­ing with its cus­tomers in its unique In­clu­sive Health Ap­proach to build a younger-look­ing, health­ier and hap­pier con­sumer by pro­tect­ing and pro­mot­ing the health of en­tire body.

With many Malaysians spend­ing most of their time look­ing at elec­tronic screens, Mu­rad utilises a num­ber of game-chang­ing in­gre­di­ents such as lutein and mar­ru­bium plant to ad­dress the dam­ag­ing ef­fects of star­ing at com­puter and smart­phone screens all day.

Mu­rad has com­bined a phys­i­cal SPF50 bar­rier with the an­tiox­i­dant lutein, which forms an ad­di­tional pro­tec­tive layer to coun­ter­act not only IRA dam­age, but also pol­lu­tion.

“Anti-pol­lu­tion is the next big thing in skin care. By us­ing the prod­uct, you are be­ing pro­tected from the blue light, as well as all those other en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors that are dam­ag­ing your skin,” says David Whyte, Mu­rad’s Asia-Pa­cific Global Ed­u­ca­tion Ed­u­ca­tor.

Quick Mu­rad tips to awaken your body at work

1. “Fo­cus on your ul­ti­mate goals and not the steps

get­ting there” - Stand up and march twice and sit down on your chair with­out us­ing your hands. Re­peat twice.

2. “Hap­pi­ness is find­ing

beauty ev­ery­day” - (Don’t worry be happy) In­hale for four sec­onds and lift your shoul­ders to your ears, hold for three sec­onds and then re­lease and ex­hale for five sec­onds.

3. “Give your­self per­mis­sion

to say No” - In­hale and as you lift your head to the ceil­ing; ex­hale. In­hale and lower your head to the floor while ex­hal­ing. Re­peat the above but turn­ing your head to the left and right in the No move­ment. 4. Gen­tly clench your fists and do 10 cir­cles clock­wise and then anti-clock­wise. You can also do your feet at the same time.

5. “Stay in touch with your

pas­sions” – Place one arm out in front of you and point your fin­gers to the ceil­ing. With the other hand, gen­tly pull your fin­gers back to­wards your body un­til you feel the stretch. Re­peat on the other side. Next, place one arm out in front of you and make a fist. With your other hand, gen­tly push the fist down­ward to­wards the floor.

6. “Have only big flex­i­ble

dreams” – To stretch the left side, turn to the left and use your left arm to grab the back of the chair and the right arm to steady your­self on the seat of the chair. Re­peat on the other side. Go to sleep as much as pos­si­ble around the same time and get up around the same time, even on week­ends. This helps to de­velop a solid sleep-wake rhythm and im­proves the qual­ity of sleep.

7.

“Love the unique you” – Give your­self a hug and try to reach your shoul­der blades. Gen­tly lean for­ward un­til you feel a stretch in your up­per back.

# Eyes Up – In­ter­lock your fin­gers and stretch your arms above your head. Turn your palms to­wards the ceil­ing while gen­tly tilt­ing your head back un­til you feel the stretch in your neck.

Con­nected Beauty: BE KIND TO YOUR MIND

Reg­u­lar pat­tern

sleep en­vi­ron­ment

Sleep in a calm, quiet, dark room. Let no light burn in the bed­room. Also put all light-emit­ting de­vices (e.g. tele­vi­sion) out. No phone or ra­dio. If you’re a light sleeper - use earplugs to block out noise from the neigh­bours.

keep work life away from the bed­room

Try to keep your sleep­ing room a place of es­cape. Set the alarm clock out of the sight if the sound both­ers you or if you have a ten­dency to con­stantly look at the clock.

light and dark

Open the cur­tains im­me­di­ately when ris­ing. Close the cur­tain be­fore bed­time for sub­dued light. This helps set our bi­o­log­i­cal clock. Use a sleep mask to block out un­wanted light.

tem­per­a­ture

Fresh air in the bed­room (tem­per­a­ture 16-18 °C) helps you get a good sleep. Use laven­der oil, gels on the wrists and pulse pints to help you re­lax.

mat­tress/cloth­ing

En­sure you have a good qual­ity mat­tress and a pil­low that prop­erly sup­ports the cer­vi­cal spine. Use sheets in nat­u­ral sub­stances. Avoid tight cloth­ing which con­stricts cir­cu­la­tion.
