Waxing will never be a pleasant experience, but when you’re in the hands of an expert, the pain ends quicker than expected and you’re smooth and fuzz-free before you know it.
Armed with 17 years of experience in the beauty industry, Diana King has earned herself a loyal clientele who swear by her lightning-speed waxing. She uses honey wax, which is suitable for sensitive and eczema-prone skin; soft wax for flatter surfaces; and hard wax for moulding onto softer, more rounded areas like the labia. #01-02 Sin Ming Centre, 8 Sin Ming Road. 9001 0274 | dianaking-waxingguru.com
Try this gold-infused neck treatment oil
The neck is often said to be a true indicator of a woman’s age.

Tame unruly hair with a Brazilian Blowout
This hair smoothening treatment promises to condition your hair and get rid of frizz by creating a protective layer around the hair shaft. Available at Visage, this treatment (priced from $450) takes up to two hours, depending on hair length and thickness. It starts with a cleansing shampoo, and then a lotion is applied, after which the hair is first blowdried and then ironed and you walk out of the salon with smooth and sleek hair that will stay that way for up to four months. Magical!
Through December, enjoy $100 off a Brazilian Blowout by mentioning “Expat Living” when you book an appointment! Alternatively, if you’re heading to a festive party, Visage is also offering a special hair up-do and makeup package for $88 (usual price $160)! #02-11/14 Delfi Orchard, 402 Orchard Road. 6733 0933 | 9040 8004 | firstname.lastname@example.org

Each of its three creams targets a particular concern, promising visible results within minutes of application. Remescar Crow’s Feet contains clay minerals and glucoside particles for tightening and anti-ageing; Remescar Tired Look provides a cooling boost while stimulating the delicate eye area with caffeine; and Remescar Eye Bags and Dark Circles is a unique combination of clay minerals and a bi-peptide complex to reduce puffiness and lighten any darkness.
