The real reason for your dry skin and prominent pores
Agonising over an acne eruption of volcanic proportions? Have I got news for you – your moisturiser may be to blame for your blemishes.
Just take it from my beauty buddy and maquillage master Larry Yeo, who says that smothering on layers of lotion in Singapore’s stifling heat can wreak serious havoc on our skin: “I find that ladies tend to over-moisturise in our humid weather and neglect the more important process of exfoliation.”
Given the clammy clime of sweltering Singapore, exfoliation is of the essence instead. In lieu of smothering your skin with sticky salves, what you should be scrupulous about is to treat yourself to a regular rub-down with a scrub, which will work wonders at preventing patchiness and banishing blackheads and breakouts.
