1. J-Beauty – Start your day with this pre-treatment skin booster for all skin types

K-Beauty may still be the trend right now, but we are seeing J-Beauty swiftly rising in popularity.

It helps defend against multiple signs of aging and skin damage – a plus point to keep your skin looking several years behind 2018. Ingredients include a powerful blend of Bulgarian rose water, aqua in pool, yeast extract, ginkgo biloba leaf extract, shiso, and thyme.
Use it to brighten, soften, hydrate your skin, smoothen fine lines and protect against environmental impurities.

2. Clean skincare – Treat your skin to natural anti-aging and healing power

La Mer The Renewal Oil
Ever since haircare and bodycare started taking sulfates off their list, more skincare brands are growing aware of the desire for products that are free of harmful chemical ingredients.
La Mer’s skin line has always revolved around its Miracle Broth™ – formulated from hand-harvested sea kelp and various nutrients and minerals through a natural fermentation process to renew the skin’s radiance.
The Renewal Oil is its first multi-faceted, dual-phase oil made from the highly active oils of The Miracle Broth™, said to offer endless possibilities to the skin, hair and nails. It is also paraben, sulfate and phthalate-free. The oil has hydrating benefits and supports natural collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while visibly firming the skin.
Use it during the day and for layering with your other skincare products.

3. Simplicity wins – The foundation with multiple skin benefits that lasts you all day

Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion EX
The time has come for lengthy skincare routines to merge into ones that offer convenience befitting our busy city life.
Sulwhasoo’s Perfecting Cushion EX is the all-in-one BB cushion every lady needs in her cosmetic bag. It offers long-lasting coverage that goes light on the skin and blends in smoothly, at the same time keeping the skin moisturised for comfortable all-day wear. The new colour tones revealed will also give a natural glowing finish no matter your skin tone.
Use for all-day picture-perfect coverage.

4. Jewel-like – Gem inspired makeup from gem infused skincare for every occasion

Clé de Peau Beauté Spring Summer 2018
You may have heard of gem infused skincare, often containing crystals like amethyst or tourmaline. Whether you believe in the benefits of the healing power of crystals, or think it’s just your regular ingredients at work, you can now wear gem inspired makeup for a look that radiates royalty.
The new Spring Summer 2018 lipstick collection from Clé de Peau Beauté captures exactly that – the fascinating beauty of gemstones in all their lustre. The lipstick tip is in an S-shape that hugs the lips for easy application.
Colours you can find include Tourmaline inspired Peach Stone, pink Crystal Star, rose hued Desert Rose, and many more.

5. DIY facial care – Add rolling into your nightly routine for ultimate skin recovery

ReFa S Carat Ray
DIY facial care with rolling, in particular, is one of the latest beauty trends popping up all over the world. It’s easy to see why – being able to get firmer, more youthful looking skin right at home is a better luxury than costly trips to the salons.
The rolling action of the ReFa S Carat Ray works by imitating the kneading motions of a facial lymphatic drainage, which helps to stimulate the skin and its muscles beneath to improve circulation. The S Carat Ray is designed for gentle rolling around the delicate eye areas and is fitted with a larger solar panel that generates higher micro-currents, enabling even better results in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
It’s just like having a beauty aesthetician knead your skin, except much more worth it.
