Rain, Rain, (You Don’t Have To) Go Away

Pitter- patter, pitter- patter. The rain hitting against the window means it’s another gloomy day here in Singapore. But turn that frown upside down because there are so many things you can do with a rainy day in Singapore! Here’s 3 things that we are suggesting:

1. Be a tourist in your own city.
Singapore has lots to offer! Whether you want to take a step into history at the National Museum or jump into the future at ArtScience Museum, Singapore’s got it all. With new exhibitions every few months, there’s bound to be something you haven’t seen! Singaporean have free access to museums, except for the Art Science Museum which you can get it at a discounted price when you show your IC.


2. Have a personal spa day.
A rainy day is the perfect day to pamper yourself with a personal spa day! Set the mood by lighting candles, playing soft music, and maybe sipping a glass of wine. Get creative with your spa day: paint your nails, immerse in a bubble bath, and put on your favourite face mask. Our favourite face mask for a spa day is Klarity’s Oxymud Mask. The cocao mask melts onto your face and oxidizes, forming into a fun bubbly mask, perfect for a spa day.

3. Find “your” café
Whether you enjoy an espresso shot or a frothy tea latté, sip away at your local café on a rainy day. Nothing is more soothing than picking up a book while hearing the sound of rain outside and smelling the strong aromas of coffee beans that drift in the room. As cafe-hopping and instagram worthy food is in the trend, more cafes are opening just around you. They offer an amazing array of food and drinks for all coffee and non coffee drinkers.

Having a diet containing high sugar levels can result in several skin concerns such as premature aging and loss of skin’s elasticity. Try to cut down on sugary foods like sweets and cakes, and replace them with fruits that are high in antioxidant instead.

3. Skipping meals

Never skip your meals because this could mean that you are not taking in sufficient vitamins and minerals which help to keep your skin looking healthy.

4. Not drinking enough water

5. Sleeping on your side

Try not to sleep on your side to avoid pressing your skin which can cause fine lines to appear on your face. You should sleep on your back to prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

Interview with Maggie Tan!

Let Maggie Tan, our local You-tuber share with you a little more about skincare and beauty!:)

Q: What is one skincare item you cannot live without?

Maggie: Cleanser. It’s the first step to prepare your skin for the other good stuffs you’re gonna put on your face.

Q: How do you find Klaritys products so far?

Maggie: Oxymud Cacao Duo Cleanse and Renewal Mask- I’m not a big fan of chocolate face products but I’m sure many girls would love it and the scent here is surprisingly not that overwhelming to me. I find it to be a fun mask because of how it bubbles up, really hydrates my skin!

Diamond Glow Overnight Masque- What I appreciate most would probably be how lightweight it is despite it being an overnight mask, I usually use it alone but I think you can definitely use it in conjunction with other creams without making your skin feel like it cannot breathe.

Q: What is beauty to you?

Maggie: To me, beauty is being able to feel good with just your bare face.

Make your skin glow!

Glow Skin 1.jpg

Bright, glowing skin is all the rage nowadays! From your face to your body, who doesn’t want luminous skin?

To give your face natural radiance, try using Klarity’s *Diamond Glow Overnight Masque* It’s super lightweight and non-greasy, absorbing right into the skin. Your face will be even brighter than the diamond powder in the masque!

Another trick is to use a cream highlighter on your cheekbones, forehead, chin, and other parts of your face where the light naturally hits.

Keeping your skin hydrated is also a key to achieving that glow that everyone wants. Make sure to moisturize every night, and drink a lot of water to hydrate from the inside!

 

Interview with Winter Chee!

Let us get to know more about beauty blogger Winter Chee and see what she has to say about Klarity’s products after putting them to test for 1 week!

Q: What inspired you to become a beauty blogger?

Winter: My IG fam! It started out as me sharing my photos of makeup. However, they are so lovely and supporting, it really inspires me to create better content for them. The interaction with them made me realize how important it is to share and empower each other through the beauty community.

Q: What is one makeup item you cannot do without?

Winter: One is too little! But if I really have to pick one, I would choose a nice lipstick that can double up as a blusher. The YSL Kiss & Blush works great!

Q: How do you find Klarity’s products so far?

Winter: Whenever I need a deep cleanse, I always reach out to Klarity’s OxyMud. I love how it cleans out my pores and rid me off my blackhead problems. Being paraben-free is a big plus point as well!

Why is a night cream so important?

diamondglowovernightmask

Some people do not apply a night cream as they tend to overlook their importance, or they do not like the feeling of greasiness on their skin when they sleep at night.

However, most people do not know how important it is to apply a night cream before you sleep.

After a long day of being exposed to sunlight or the filthy air, applying a night cream helps to soothe the skin and restore its moisture level.

Applying a good night cream also promotes the production of collagen, keeping the skin looking young. It also revitalizes the skin and treat various conditions such as fine lines as well as pigmentation.

Choosing a suitable night cream is also essential to maximize the benefits which your skin can receive.

In your 20s, it would be better to choose a night cream that is less rich and contains lots of natural ingredients for hydration and nourishment. Whereas, for those who are in their 30s and 40s, it is better to use a cream with active ingredients such as retinol and amino acids to prevent aging skin.

Do not forget to apply the cream onto your neck area as well!
