Here’s how you can reboot your skin post-lockdown


Coming out of lockdown and with mask wearing becoming the daily norm, it’s no wonder more and more people are noticing more frequent outbreaks as skin becomes oilier and pores become more clogged.

Here's how you can reboot your skin post-lockdown

According to Dr Low Chai Ling, founder and director of SW1 Clinic, these are common problems as skin occluded by masks can be more prone to comedones and acne. Perspiration is unable to evaporate off effectively, so skin may stay damp and oily all day long.

But you don’t have to put up with bad skin and hide behind your mask. Now with aesthetic clinics and spas open for business in #phase2, you can give your skin a reboot with some of these treatments.

This is a great way to clear up acne effectively without having to rely on oral medications.

Deep Deep Clean Facial

Skin detox facials like Deep Deep Clean is a popular option for a session of deep cleaning of your skin and pores.
