Top 10 skin care saviours for life in Singapore

Adjusting your beauty routine to Singapore’s humid climate is no easy feat. It can take many months to find a moisturiser that hydrates properly, or a cleanser that can control your now oily complexion. To save you the lengthy (and costly!) trial-and-error process, we’ve created a guide to our favourite skincare products that we feel have really made all the difference. Oh-so-handy, if we say so ourselves. Plus, check out our medical guide to healthy skin in Singapore here.

 

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

This superhero exfoliant comes in powder form and, when mixed with water, turns into a gentle emulsion that you massage on to the face to remove dead skin cells to reveal brighter, clearer skin. As there are no harsh beads or granules, it can be used daily to help keep skin unclogged and refreshed. It also creates a smooth canvas for make-up as it thoroughly removes any surface dead skin cells.
