12 Lather properly
Eugene advises lathering up shampoo between your palms before massaging it into the scalp. Start from the back of your head, where hair is thickest, and slowly work the mixture through to the front. Rinse thoroughly, then toweldry or wring out hair before
13 Pamper those tresses
A nourishing product like L’Oreal Paris Elseve Extraordinary Oil Balm-Mask ($19.90, leading supermarkets) once or twice a week deep-conditions hair with a blend of six botanical oils that strengthens and gives it a glossy shine.
14 Strengthen hair
Frequently styled hair needs O&M Original Mineral Project Sukuroi Gold Smoothing Balm ($55, Sephora). This helps repair damaged strands with keratin, and softens with camelina and macadamia oil. To use, comb through damp hair and blow-dry to set. Ask your hairdresser for a dusting (a snip of about 0.5cm) if you’re trying to grow your hair out. It will help get rid of split ends and keep locks healthy. Then follow up with Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil ($38, Sephora) that helps fight frizz and tame split ends with its rich blend of amino acids and minerals.
16 Don’t neglect your nails
Keep your tips in their best shape ever by massaging Depend Myrrh Oil ($7.90, www. dependcosmeticsg.com.sg) onto bare nails – or cuticles if you have polish on – daily. The formula is enriched with vitamin E and almond oil to keep them strong and more resistant to chipping and breakage. Nobody wants a cakey base. Majolica Majorca Nude Make Gel ($25.90, Watsons) is a feather-light gel foundation with light to medium coverage, and a dewy, satiny finish. One layer is enough to even out the skin tone and minimise pores.
