4 Of The Most Helpful Skincare Tips To Beat The Local Heat

Ask any lady in Singapore and they’d likely say that the sweltering local heat is their worst enemy. While it is undeniable that the endless year-round summer does bring about amazing things -- ice-cold beverages, sunny beach days and stylish summer fashion – our skin certainly does not love the humidity.

Numerous issues are brought on by the heat and sweat that accompany it, including clogged pores, acne outbreaks, fine lines and wrinkles, just to name a few. Moreover, with mask-wearing being optional now, the last thing you’d want is to feel insecure about your skin’s condition when you’re out and about!

Fortunately, it is not the end of the world as there are ways you can beat the local heat and look your absolute best. In this article, we explore 4 of the most helpful skincare tips every Singaporean girl needs to know!

Tip #1: Never forget to moisturise
Let’s debunk the myth once and for all – moisturising is essential even if you have oily skin! Many individuals with the oily skin type believe that because Singapore is so hot and they’re bound to sweat, moisturising will only make things worse. However, it is actually quite the opposite!

In comparison to Western women, Asian women typically have a poorer skin barrier. This implies that the skin is more vulnerable to damage from external factors, making it more susceptible to dryness. When your skin becomes dry, it highlights fine wrinkles and is more prone to breakouts.

Thus, no matter how much the sun is blazing, you should never skip out on applying some form of moisturising product. Check out VANILLA Taste Of Beauty’s Hydro Dew for a moisturising serum with superb hydration properties and even offers protection against UV rays!

Tip #2: Double cleanse at the end of the day
Before you say that it is unnecessary to cleanse twice, hear us out.

We all struggle with skin issues like redness, acne, or uneven pigmentation. These can be triggered by things like makeup, too much oil, dead skin cells and more. Some of us even spend good money on cosmetic products like 24-hour coverage foundations and waterproof eye products. These all accumulate on the skin’s surface.

A quick wash isn’t enough to get rid of all the impurities and dirt left on your face at the end of the day. Instead, you should cleanse twice – once with an oil-based cleanser or balm and once more with a water or gel-based cleanser.

Tip #3: Sunblock all day, every day – even if it’s a gloomy day
You already know how important wearing sunscreen is. Sunscreen is an absolute must, whether you’re just lazing around indoors or soaking up the sun on the beach in hopes of developing a gorgeous tan.

No matter rain or shine, sunblock protects your skin against the sun’s harmful rays that could result in wrinkles, fine lines and more. So, even if you peek out your window and see that it’s a gloomy day out, layer on your sunblock to keep your skin looking glowy, supple and healthy!

Tip #4: Be generous with serums
Serums will help your irritated skin greatly after long periods of exposure to the sun. There are various serums available on the market, each with specific functions. In particular, we would recommend opting for serums that contain ingredients with calming or soothing properties, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Infused with orange fruit extract, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil and calendula, this high-performance serum is the ideal skin booster that heals, moisturises and brightens the skin all at the same time.
