Having healthy-looking skin is not that difficult. The secret is to pamper your skin with the right products that can hydrate, moisturise and soothe well enough.

Serums and essences should be a part of your skincare arsenal to achieve that glowing, radiant complexion.

Superfood solutions

Homegrown skincare brand B&B Labs’ Super Treatment Essences collection includes the Super-Moist Treatment Essence, a solution for dry and dehydrated skin which incorporates ingredients sourced locally.

Featuring a powerful trio of Asian-derived ingredients, it aims at quenching thirsty skin with a restorative essence that hydrates intensely.

It uses prized superfood. Malaysian bird’s nest which is rich in epidermal growth factors that boosts collagen and elastin production. Additionally, Chinese white jelly mushroom provides hydration.

Natto, a fermented soy concentrate with friendly bacteria, promotes skin balance, and 8-Dimensional hyaluronic acid with its unique molecular structure activates, retains and preserves moisture.

For sensitive skin

MooGoo’s Bakuchiol (1% w/v) Natural Retinol Substitute Active Serum offers a natural alternative for Retinol as Retinol can irritate the skin in certain people.

Bakuchiol is new but has some great supporting studies. Pronounced bah-koo-chee-all, this plant-based alternative is derived from the Babchi Herb comes with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, possibly the reason for the moniker of “plant-based Retinol”.

The product is meant to stimulate collagen production and diminish signs of fine lines and wrinkles, and includes a base of moisturising jojoba oil, natural vitamin E and shea butter.

This silky-smooth serum is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin and is free of phenxyethanol and parabens.

Radiant and even skin

Eucerin’s recently-launched Spotless Brightening Crystal Booster Serum – the brand’s newest breakthrough in brightening skincare – is an all-new extension to the Spotless Brightening range, which features a potent infusion of Thiamidol, a patented active ingredient.

Combined with the exclusive Crystal Technology and clinically proven to effectively diminish dark spots by up to 75%, whilst also improving skin hydration by up to 98% within just two weeks of continued use, the product promises to make the skin more radiant and even.

Thiamidol is a potent ingredient developed exclusively by Eucerin after 10 years of research to treat skin issues at the core by visibly reducing the signs of skin pigmentation (dark spots) or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation for brighter, clearer skin.

Meanwhile, the Crystal Technology combines hyaluronic acid hydrogel and glycerin to deliver deep hydration to the skin for healthier, more radiant skin from the inside-out.

Also taking the Asian climate into careful consideration, it has an ultra-lightweight texture that is non-sticky, non-greasy and quick to absorb upon application for comfortable all-day wear.

Glowing skin with more bounce

Fresh’s Tea Elixir Skin Resilience Activating Serum aims at boosting the skin’s resilience and defying signs of ageing.

Leveraging 15 years of research into the skin benefits of tea, the serum was developed by extracting the power of an adaptive tea plant and applying it to the skin, resulting in smooth skin with minimised lines, a visible glow, and more bounce.

Scientists at the fresh lab discovered a way to capture the resilient properties of atea plant from Mauritius (known as “the pearl of the Indian Ocean”) to create the revolutionary Adaptive Phytocompound Tea (APT) Technology, an exclusive ingredient concentrated in citrate and polyphenols.

An extraction process informed by over 30 years of plant genetics research breaks down the tea leaves cells’ membranes and filtrates the low molecular weight compounds to produce the final exclusive ingredient: APT Technology.

Along with this powerful tea sourced from the Bois Cheri farm on Mauritius, the product is enriched with niacinamide to refine the look of pores; 5kDa hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate and minimise visible lines; ceramide III to strengthen the skin’s barrier; and ocean kelp to improve skin’s texture.

Timeless skin

Homegrown brand Putryana’s Revitalising Serum is a high concentrate, fast acting serum formulated to improve fine lines, wrinkles and circulation. It also has prolonged hydration properties.

The highly concentrated serum uses the Shinrin-Yoku concept that uses Phyto-chemicals to induce a neurogenic response feeling of calmness and well-being which helps invigorate and revitalise the skin.

It claims to protect against harmful radiation from your electronic devices by providing a filter matrix against this radiation. A protective matrix keeps the skin well moisturised for an extended period by preventing trans epidermal water loss even after rinsing.
