With Chinese New Year just around the corner, you can expect long nights and unhealthy snacks waiting to wreck your beautiful skin.
Don’t fret just yet– here’s how you can keep your skin healthy and glowing through the festive season without missing out on all the delicious snacks and fun!
This has been oft- repeated, but it remains one of the most important tips to keep your skin healthy. Counteract the combined drying effects of snacks and alcohol to your skin by staying hydrated.
Dehydrated skin is dry, dull, and shows signs of ageing earlier– all things you should avoid!
Don’t wait till the day before to book your facial and other beauty treatments! You may notice an instant glow after your facial, but new skin needs time to resurface.
The best time to visit is roughly a week before– after your facial treatments, your skincare becomes more effective as well.
Why not usher in this Chinese New Year with glowing skin? Sign up for the first trial of our sMTS facial at only $199 (UP $680)!
This revolutionary facial is unlike no other – featuring the world’s first water-soluble HA and EGF particles, this facial allows for more effective delivery of active ingredients, resulting in a radiant and youthful complexion.
If you’ve been burning the midnight oil to clear your work before the long break, your skin may be showing more signs of dullness, dehydration, and ageing.
Apply a sheet mask daily for low-maintenance skincare– sheet masks provide intense hydration and other skincare benefits if you are simply too tired to do your full 15-step skincare routine.
Have you heard the saying ‘the eyes are the window to your soul’? Your eyes reflect your age and are where the signs of ageing usually show up first due to the delicate skin around the area.
Applying eye serum and eye cream regularly will help moisturise and firm up the area around your eyes, making you look younger and more refreshed!
Don’t just focus on your face– the skin on your body is important too!
Exfoliate and moisturise your entire body to ensure your skin stays baby soft and smooth (especially if you wish to flaunt your legs during CNY!)
Skip activities that cause your skin to dry out even further during the festive period.
As the snacks and drinks we tend to consume during this time (delicious and unavoidable 😅) already leads to dry skin, it is best to avoid hot showers and long baths that cause further dehydration and damage to our skin barrier.
What we eat affects our skin as well.
If you can’t stay away from the CNY snacks, why not counteract the harmful effects by consuming more skin foods and herbal teas to nourish your skin and body?
Our blog has a wealth of resources (yes, including guides on skin foods and teas!) for you to read up on how you can nourish your skin inside and out!

Many of us will stay up late playing mahjong, cards, and drinking.
Far be it from us to stop your bonding moments but make sure you don’t scrimp on your sleeping hours to do so!
Make sure you get enough sleep (8 hours means more huat ya) or take a quick afternoon app if you have to be up early to visit relatives.
