“Your Network is Your Net Worth.”

Tim Sanders, author, public speaker, and former Yahoo! director once said, “your network is your net worth.” We hear this all the time but what is the truth behind it?

We can’t deny that networking events are crucial in today’s day and age because it allows you to build relationships and be inspired by others. Klarity understands the importance of networking thus on Thursday, June 29th, we had one of our networking events.

The goal of our event was connecting and collaborating with Singaporean social media influencers. We created a networking event for the influencers so that they could share beauty tips and get to know the local influencers better. Influencers and their friends joined us. As our guests flooded into our room, we played some icebreakers to get to know each other. After all, you can’t have a networking event without a few fun icebreakers. Then it was time for beauty tips! Whether it was their nightly routine or their favourite beauty product, everyone had something fun to share. We learned a lot from the influencers. Karine Estelle, founder and CEO of Klarity, also gave insight on her experience as an entrepreneur and skin care lover.

“So nice to meet and learn a few mantras of beauty and success from its founder Karine Estelle Cheong” -Shubhada (@shub_sg)

“[I] am really impressed by the results and it’s only a matter of days” -Isabelle W. Rosta (@lovebellavida)

After a few more laughs and a few more Klarity demonstrations, we ended the night with beautiful pastries made by Yume Patisserie. Yume Patisserie is a local homegrown baking studio running masterclasses, customising bespoke cakes and dessert table in Singapore.

Read more about them here: “Yume” means dream in Japanese and “Patisserie” is a french word a bakery selling sweets and pastries.

Klarity at Mrs Singapore and Classic Mrs Singapore 2017

Let’s bring it back to May 6, 2017. It was the Mrs Singapore & Classic Mrs Singapore 2017 Grand Finals and Klarity was there every step of the way! We were so excited to work with the event as the official skincare sponsor.

      

We also shared with the contestants one of our favourite products: The Immortal Elixir (or TIE) in a small session before the finals. We simply can’t live without TIE because it can help reduce the effects of stress on the skin whether that is reddened skin or wrinkles. TIE gave the women an instant lift, glow, and moisture, which improved their skin before the finals.

Our founder, Karine, also shared on her experience with beauty pageants and her skincare regimes on the Press Conference of the event.

We couldn’t be more excited about the theme Retrolicious and the opportunity to able to experience the pageant up close and personal. The beautiful contestants got ready with our products. The Grand Finale can be a stressful night for the ladies. Whether it is practicing for the talent portion or preparing for the Q&A, high levels of stress can damage the skin. Good thing that Klarity was there to help the ladies enhance their beauty effortlessly.

We also wanted to congratulate all of the contestants. You ladies were amazing! Of course, huge congrats to the winners, Priscilia Koh (Classic Mrs Singapore Universe) and Racheal Olivero (Mrs Singapore Universe)!

5 habits you do not realize are harming your skin

The caffeine present in coffee can cause your skin to become dehydrated and result in the appearance of fine lines. This can lead to aging skin, especially around the eye areas. Decrease your caffeine consumption and remember to drink lots of water to keep you and your skin hydrated

2. Satisfying your sweet tooth

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

Insufficient water intake can lead to dehydrated skin and cause premature aging. Do remember your daily 8 glasses of water to reveal your skin’s natural glow.

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.
