“I HAVE SOME­WHAT OF A SEN­SI­TIVE SKIN SO IT’S BEEN A CHAL­LENGE FOR ME TO WEAR MAKEUP, LET ALONE KEEP IT ON FOR A LONG PE­RIOD OF TIME. I’VE HEARD ABOUT THE BEN­E­FITS OF MIN­ERAL MAKEUP. IS IT SUIT­ABLE FOR MY SKIN?” – Jes­sica Lim, 22, Stu­dent

If you find your­self break­ing out fre­quently from wear­ing reg­u­lar makeup, then yes, per­haps it’s time you gave min­eral makeup a try as min­eral-based prod­ucts are gen­er­ally fra­grance-free and do not con­tain most chem­i­cals, dyes and preser­va­tives. Makeup artist Cat Yong says, “It’s very gentle and won’t clog pores, so you’ll find that it feels very light on your skin.” If you’re look­ing for a solution to keep your makeup on all day, use a primer as a base first. This min­eral-based, water-re­sis­tant primer neu­tralises the skin, min­imises shine and cre­ates a smooth and uni­form can­vas, giv­ing you the re­sults you’re look­ing for.

“WHEN IT COMES TO SKIN­CARE, I’M A NO-FUSS KIND OF GIRL, PRE­FER­RING TO KEEP IT TO THE REG­U­LAR CLEANSE-TONE-MOIS­TURISE ROU­TINE. LATELY, I FIND THAT IT’S NOT DO­ING ENOUGH FOR MY SKIN AND HAVE NO­TICED SOME DRY PATCHES ON MY FACE. WHAT WOULD YOU SUG­GEST I TRY TO EN­HANCE MY SKIN­CARE ROU­TINE?” – Nur­diana Hashim, 36, IT con­sul­tant

Did you know that hyaluronic acid is a nat­u­ral com­po­nent pro­duced by the body to lock in mois­ture and cre­ate full­ness within the skin? While it can be in­gested from mul­ti­ple food sources, the best way to main­tain­ing hy­dra­tion and elas­tic­ity is by ap­ply­ing it straight onto the skin with your ev­ery­day skin­care. Look for hyaluronic acid in your prod­ucts – most hy­drat­ing mois­turis­ers will have it listed as the main in­gre­di­ent. Don’t for­get your eye area as they can be tricky to main­tain as you get older. Give these su­per-hy­drat­ing eye patches a try. Put them on for 15 min­utes and see your dark cir­cles re­duced in­stantly! EL­IZ­A­BETH AR­DEN VIS­I­BLE DIF­FER­ENCE RE­PLEN­ISH­ING HY­DRAGEL COM­PLEX, RM189.
