Getting ready for a winter holiday? There is no denying that we Singaporeans love to travel, especially to countries with colder weather to escape the heat. However, the drastic change of weather can take a toll on our skin.
In Singapore, most of us experience oily skin and enlarged pores, but when we are in countries with four seasons, cold air tightens the pores and our oil glands become less active; giving us clear, smooth skin. Sounds like a dream? The truth is it is more like a nightmare, even people with “oily” skin will experience skin flaking, chapped lips and in the worst case cold rashes. Fine lines and wrinkles will be accentuated, and if we have makeup on, it will start cracking. Fortunately, we have the essential beauty know-how to survive though a chilly getaway.
1. Cleansing Lotion
Generally foam or gel cleansers may be a little too drying for the skin during winter. Opt for a cleansing lotion that contains some cleansing oil to gently remove dirt, makeup and impurities; while normalizing our skin’s PH level and locking skin’s own moisture.
Mandarin Acai Cleansing Lotion
Our Mandarin Acai Cleansing Lotion, choked full of certified organic ingredients, is an ideal choice as it contains a high concentration of Vitamin C to gently remove dead skin cells and increase cell turnover. Reduce our skin’s flakiness with gentle-exfoliation while nourishing it to keep it deeply moisturised.
Sensitive Skin Rescue Cleanser
For sensitive skin, our Sensitive Skin Rescue Cleansing Lotion is perfect. Dryness, eczema, rosacea, irritation, we’ve got it all covered. This ultra-mild cleanser effectively and gently removes impurities while soothing, protecting, repairing and moisturizing your skin barrier.
2. Micellar Water
Various countries and seasons differ in the “hardness” of water. Sometimes it may contain heavy metals such as iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, fluoride and chlorine which remove our oil barrier; causing dryness and premature aging to occur. Micellar water is the perfect winter-weather substitute to a regular face wash which does not strip the skin of its natural moisture.
Seriously Fresh Micellar Water
Hydrate and cleanse with our Seriously Fresh Micellar Water as it acts like a magnet to attract dirt. Contains cucumber and chamomile to soothe irritations, dry and itchy skin. It also nourishes the skin with organic rose and antioxidant-rich green tea; leaving the skin dewy and hydrated. Perfect for travel!
3. Facial Oil
Good facial oils are really essential to save our skin during winter. Oils are natural emollients which lock and seal in our skin’s natural oil, while preventing moisture loss.
Cell Regeneration Facial Oil Serum
Here’s a quick #beautytip, add a few drops of our Cell Regeneration Facial Oil Serum to a little toner, or mist, and gently massage into the skin. So nourishing! Packed with antioxidants, this facial oil contains 17 organic flower and plant extracts to boost the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production. No matter what your skin type is (Yes, works wonders on combination skin too!), you can use this divine facial oil serum to achieve supple, moist skin.
4. Face Creams
Please keep those lightweight oil-free moisturizers in Singapore as it will not meet the cut for the piercing cold and chilly wind. We need a nourishing moisturizer to keep the flakes and dryness at bay.
Dose Of Omega 7 Hydrating Emulsion
Introducing our Dose of Omega 7 Hydrating Emulsion – it contains high concentrations of fatty acids and lipids to deeply moisturise, protect and strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier. This luscious cream replenishes skin’s moisture with great lasting power to counteract dryness. It contains organic comfrey leaf which is known for soothing and relieving symptoms of atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema. The best thing? It does not feel thick, greasy or heavy on the skin.
Masks are absolutely the cult essential for travelling; whether it is a quick skin beauty fix after a day out in the cold or protecting your skin from a long-flight. We can never go wrong and it comes in so handy whenever our skin needs an instant perk or extra boost.Take advantage of a good hydrating mask, especially one that can be left on overnight.

We recommend our ever-popular water mask – Ultra-Revive H20+Masque. Enjoy an intensive burst of hydration with this leave-on treatment that locks moisture and nutrients. Packed with high concentrations of hyaluronic acid, it leaves your skin feeling smoother. Leave it overnight and wake up to plumped and supple-looking skin!
#travelessentials and #inflightessentials. Applying skincare twice daily is not enough to protect our skin. Think – If we drink water throughout the day to hydrate our body organs, all the more we have to hydrate the skin, our body’s largest organ, throughout the day to replenish the skin’s hydration. How?
Deluxe Hydra Nutrient Mist
Spitz our Deluxe Hydra Nutrient Mist throughout the day and whenever needed. Thankfully our mist is a long-lasting formula as it’s not just aqua which dries out quickly. It is a combination of serums and essences which act as a reapplication of skincare. Contains a precious blend of organic rose, white tea, pomegranate and snow fungus to lock in everlasting 24/7 hydration.
7. Lip Balm
As our lips do not contain any oil glands, therefore it is most-prone to dryness and cracks.
Needless to say, we will definitely need a lip balm, and an organic one to go just ‘coz conventional ones contain too much chemicals and nasties and we don’t want to be eating all this stuff… Yikes!
