It’s about 2 months and counting to my big day and I have started to become a lot more hardworking with my home facials and nightly masks. 

Who doesn’t want to look like the most radiant and beautiful bride on your special day?

I was recently introduced to and began to  use Philips Visacare – a dual action air lift & exfoliation system – twice a week. Visacare is a skin resurfacing tool that helps remove dead skin cells, clear clogged pores, leaving you with a firmer and more radiant looking skin. Ever since I started on this home tool,  I’ve been addicted! It especially helps my problem clogged chin and nose areas rid of white heads. 

If you’re a daily user of make-up and sunblock. It is very important to do a deep cleansing of your skin to prevent clogged pores which includes adding microdermabrasion to your weekly routine. 

Here’s a video about the product review and how it works on ridding your skin of unwanted dead skin cells and clogged pores:

And after using the micro-dermabrasion device, I checked out the head of the tool and gleefully saw loads of dead skin cells and even some white heads sucked out of my face! (A grossly gratifying feeling) 


It is important to immediately use a facial mask after using Visacare as your skin is fresh and raw, so it will thirstily absorb all mask serums in an instant. Also this will aid in the formation of new and healthy youthful skin. Whilst my mask is on, I will also add an extra step of using Philips Visaboost to help enhance the absorption of the benefits of the facial mask. This tool can also be used daily with your moisturizers. 


I simply love home facials and with the aid of numerous beauty tools available in the market nowadays, it makes it all the more easier. 

Ok, back to my wedding planning on my MacBook! 💕

Yesterday I underwent my very first laser for my face. I felt that my skin is starting to look tired, freckles on my nose bridge/cheekbone area is becoming more noticeable and my open pores have been bothering me for some time. (My irregular hours & sun damage from scuba diving is probably the cause of it) So I decided to give RevLite a try at Dermacare@ION. I heard rave reviews that after one session you can immediately see a great improvement in skin tone & fairness.

I met up with Dr Dennis Kwan and consulted with him raising tons of questions regarding my skin. From my clogged chin area – is it due to fine facial hairs? – YES. To is there any downtime or side effects with this laser? – NO. After spending about half an hour bombarding him with all my concerns as I’ve never tried laser treatment before and I’m naturally worried. I was ushered to take a before photo of my skin *horror*.

After that I was laid down on the treatment bed, had my sunblock removed & started the laser treatment. The first time the laser touched the skin on my cheek it felt like someone just gently snapped me with a small rubber band! Kinda shocked me a little. But after a while I got used to the sensation and it was like tiny ant bites on my skin which didn’t really hurt. And after 5 minutes I got used to the feeling and it felt like a massage – sore but soothing as the skin warms up as well.

What I am most happy with is that RevLite will also ‘burn’ off the fine facial hairs that cause my pores to be more open & skin more prone to white heads. Something that’s been plaguing me and I’ve tried so hard to battle it. Immediately after the laser, I found my pores tighter, and skin more radiant n fair.

So I decided to sleep over it and take a photo of my bare skin with no make up the minute I woke up this morning. I’m happy! My chin actually seems less clogged and pores definitely smaller. I also found that my eye area less dark. Freckles still look about the same to me. But generally I find my skin a lot smoother than before without a single bit of make up.

So I did up the before after treatment photo and also noticed that I’m slighter fairer! *yay*

Can’t wait to go down for my next treatment and see more improvements on my skin!

XOXO
