Ain’t nobody got time for that…
As a women-led business, we totally resonate with your struggle of juggling family commitments and going full-force in your career. Time is a luxury for busy multi-tasking women and self-care always takes the lowest priority on your to-do list.
It is simply not possible nor sustainable to follow through the 12 lengthy steps of the Korean skincare ritual. But if you’d still like to get the highly coveted K-glow, we are here to show you how!
1. Skincare can be easy, all you need is to have the right discipline
Skin-vival 101 – If there is only one thing you can do for your skin, always wear your sunscreen.
While many are skipping it due to the wearing of masks, alas, harmful UV rays and blue light can still penetrate the mask (depending on the material, colour, thickness etc.), so it does not replace the need for your daily sunscreen. We can never emphasise enough on the importance of applying sunscreen.
If you’re still looking for the perfect sunscreen, look no further! Our multi award-winning ést.lab’s SunShield SPF50*** has both UV and blue light protection. It can also double up as a tinted moisturiser for makeup-free days and achieve that “my skin, but better” look.
If you’re guilty of skipping sunscreens, think of the pigmentation you’ll have 10 years down the road. 😂
2. Protect and maintain a healthy skin barrier
In places with hot and humid weather, especially urban cities like Singapore, you’re exposed to air pollution in your daily life. Extreme heat and high humidity levels also increase the rate of harmful or toxic chemicals in the air. Besides getting your hands on an air-purifier, you need to pollution-proof your skin.
An anti-pollution moisturiser is just what you need. It acts as a protective barrier against air-borne pollutants and minimises skin friction due to prolonged mask wearing, which can help prevent maskne or sensitised skin.
ést.lab’s ActivCalm Anti-Stress Hydra Cream is proven to provide a protective shield against ultra-fine airborne pollutants, neutralise the toxicity of heavy chemicals to prevent skin damage, while it hydrates your skin.
This feather-light moisturiser also promises to calm and soothe any skin redness or inflammation by quickly desensitising your skin in just 7 days. By balancing your skin’s microbiome to improve skin’s defense, it will help you build a healthy skin barrier in the long run.
3. Exfoliate, don’t procrastinate
Whether you’re looking to lighten acne scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles or brighten dull complexion, the bottom line is to treat them by stimulating cellular renewal to regenerate new baby-smooth skin.
Unfortunately, as we age, the rate of our skin cell turnover declines progressively. Hence, we need to rely on exfoliators to help slough off dead skin cells and impurities stuck in our pores.
If you want that smooth like butter skin, it can be achieved with just one bottle of our next-gen daily exfoliator, ést.lab’s LumiWhite 10% PHA Resurfacing Glow Serum. You can now safely boost cell turnover with this chemical exfoliator that’s concocted with a high concentration of 10% PHA.
Basically, what this means is you’ll reap the benefits of AHAs, minus the harshness that usually comes with chemical peels. PHA is proven to be effective, yet gentle and suitable even for those who are prone to sensitivity or pregnant ladies! Yay!
The results? It improves skin texture, fades dark spots, and reduces visible signs of ageing. You’re now one step closer to achieving the glowing “glass skin” you’ve always been dreaming of.
No you won’t need to re-enter your mum’s womb to be born again!
4. Amp up with monthly facials
Last but not least, don’t skip your monthly facials if you want faster and longer-lasting results. If your tight schedule only allows a quick perk-me-up, you need to try Estetica’s OxyGeneo 3-in-1 Therapy that exfoliates, oxygenates and infuses your skin with nutrients all at the same time in just 45 minutes! Your skin will look instantly brighter and feel silky-smooth after every session.
To complement your regular facials, we highly recommend you to use ést.lab’s VitaLift A+ Brillage Face Mask one to two times weekly. This nano bio-cellulose mask is soaked in a cocktail of skin-loving ingredients for hydrated, bouncy, dewy and glowing skin. Consider them a booster to sustain the results till your next facial session.
