Is your skin looking lacklustre? Refresh and rejuvenate it with the Guinot Hydradermie Double Ionisation facial at Sylvia’s Secrets!

Award-winning spa and skincare specialist Beaute Hub has launched the latest version of the LPG New Alliance Lab treatment, a slimming revolution for both face and body. The new, patented treatment head combines a motorised flap and roller in sequential suction, working together to stimulate tissue and activate lymphatic circulation while eliminating fat. The non-invasive technique reactivates cellular processes, smoothing away cellulite and tightening skin over time. Sign us up! Six outlets island-wide. beautehub.com
For those who’ve been eyeing long, fluttery lashes but don’t want the hassle of putting on falsies, lash extensions would be something worth trying. Our most recent discovery is The Lash Company, a boutique lash salon tucked in a quiet stretch of shophouses along Kampong Bahru Road. Each appointment starts with a quick consultation with your therapist on your desired look, followed by a deep-cleansing lash spa to remove dead skin, oil, dirt and bacteria for a clean lash line. We recommend the Natural Classic ($88) option, which gives the illusion of a thicker lash line so you can skip eyeliner on lazy days! thelashco.sg
Homegrown spa group Ikeda Spa has launched a dry facial bar that offers fast, customised and affordable facials for busy women. The signature treatment at the Face Shower Bar is the Quick Shower Facial ($90, first-time trials at $48), a quick yet effective 30-minute facial therapy that uses hydra-dermabrasion (an exfoliation technology using water) to remove clogged pores and blackheads with no downtime. You can also opt to upgrade your experience by adding on a quick shower booster like a mask (top up $40) or an eyebag removal treatment (top up $70). face.shower.bar
