Now that many countries have opened up, I can finally go on our winter holidays again! I went on a "winter" trip to Taiwan in January and here's what I brought with me.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the 10 step Korean skincare regime and wished for a simpler skincare routine? Move over skincare junkies, as we detox our skincare routine, and embrace the new trend of Skinimalism.
At some point, facials, serums, lifting and wrinkle creams, and LED face masks can only help that much. That's when an extra boost is needed. Since the start of this year, i've looked into several of these anti-aging procedures and Ultherapy stood out for me.
After getting really good results from the IDS Skincare line and Pico-Laser treatment during my #IDSTransformMe journey with IDS Skincare, I'm definitely more than happy to be able to return to IDS again to try out the Thermage FLX treatment!
I've come across many profiles talking about monthly laser treatments and most of them had very good feedback after incorporating lasers into their routine. I didn't have the chance to speak to a professional so I just left it as so; until I made my visit to IDS.
Haaaaaave you heard about IDS? Innovative Dermatological Solutions (IDS) is a local skincare brand created by Dr SK Tan who has more than 30 years of experience in dermatology and skincare. That’s longer than the years I’ve been alive!
Recently I have some breakouts on my face. I felt annoyed with a few sudden breakups. I wasn't sure what were the causes. It could be because of my hormonal changes or too heaty or not enough sleep. I made a trip down to IDS to get my skin consulted.
Last year, my skin was pretty bad with maskne and the outbreak was mainly on the upper jawline. I would have guessed it right plus my biomarkers scan, it was all contributed by my hormones and probably also the prolonged wearing of mask. It was a lot of hard work to clear them to a minimal.
Pigmentation, enlarged pores and acne scarring are some of the issues we often face on our skin. With the latest technology, we are not only able to lighten these unsightly problems but we can remove them altogether.
Whatever your age, it’s never too early or late to address your skin concerns! I’ve just entered my 30s, and I’m worried about how my skin would age. Hence the invitation to hop onto the IDS Journey came at a perfect timing.
I have a confession to make. Now that I'm over 30, I find myself relying more and more on liquid foundation for better coverage. I find that I could not live without it! But for 2021, I threw my skin a challenge. I told myself that I had to at least maintain how my skin looks currently, and slow down the aging process.
Isn't it true? When we see an improvement to our skin over time we can get into the mindset that its good enough and that's the routine that we need to stick to. Contrary to that, our skin is constantly ageing and taking longer to regenerate as we get older. So once in awhile, a little something different can help us potentially see more improvements.
Today marks the 7th day of my new skincare routine. I will share with you this journey with IDS (Innovative Dermatologist Solutions) this coming few months. Let’s together find out how their products and services work on my skin.
Not the clearest skin I've ever had, it was also getting really dull and dry, and I had multiple stubborn acne(repurcussions of steroid-acne). I've tried all methods I could ever know and nothing helped. So when IDS invited me down to try out their treatment, I did not hesitate to say yes.
The biggest significant improvement from using this skincare products and routine is how healthy my skin looks now. The skin tone is even, my complexion appears to be more radiant and I tend to have lesser breakouts than before (even with mask-wearing).
Being relatively new to dermatological and aesthetic treatments, and seeing friends around me constantly sharing about their skincare journey has led me to wonder if I should be doing something more for my skin.
I was really happy to know that my skin hydration level was now better and I actually felt that it was better able to absorb products that I apply onto it too. Point to note though, it helps alot to massage your face while applying it. Feels so relaxing and I enjoyed my morning and nightly routine of doing this while applying the different products.
I rarely put on makeup. I find that putting on makeup is tiring and expensive. Therefore, I focus a lot on my skincare. Through my years of reviewing skincare, I learned one thing. Everyone’s skin type is different no matter how similar it seems. Thus, it is important to use personalised skincare products and treatments for your skin to thrive in the best conditions.
If you remember, towards the end of January this year, I paid a visit to IDS for a consultation. IDS mentioned that I have a lot of sunspots and provided me with my own customised line of skincare essentials to brighten, nourish, and prevent my skin from aging.
so once im used to a certain skincare product i will jus stick to it. But this time im very bless to be able to join IDS on this skincare journey after hearing n seeing so much rave on social media! my very first visit to IDS at their orchard outlet was a very pleasant one.
I'm a strong believer that consistency is what allows us to see and experience change. This applies very much to exercise, nutrition and of course skincare. That consistency and diligence to following a programme is key, but the effectiveness of it is also crucial in order for us to see any positive changes and to be able to sustain these changes.
My 3-month skincare journey with IDS was nothing short of amazing. I started off the journey with their own house brand of skincare products. It took a few weeks for my skin to adjust to their products and once my skin got used to their products, my skin texture started to improve greatly. The Refreshing Toner, Pore Formula and Intensive Moisturiser are the products which brought about great benefits to my skin. I felt that the Pore Formula has help to reduce the blemishes on my skin and the Intensive Moisturiser helps to plump up my skin with moisture.
I recently watched a Tiktok that said that our skin begins really ageing at 25, and that’s when we should already have started pumping the Vitamin C, collagen and hyaluronic acid. Insert blinking meme. Excuse me?? You’re telling me I’m a year late?? Suffice to say, I had a lot of catching up to do. That’s why IDS came into my life at the perfect time.
As someone who has been lazy in maintaining my complexion, the 6 to 7-step process requires some discipline, morning and night. Nonetheless, I promise myself to give it a go, since I have never tried out anything of such before. Much to my amazement, it has been a fruitful two months and I have been diligently adhering to the steps.
I started on my journey to clear, no-makeup-needed skin with IDS in January 2021 as part of my new year resolution to take better care of my poor, dried, sensitive skin. I’ve heard rave reviews about IDS from my friends and so was super excited to start on their products and try out their treatments!
Recently i tried the Pico Laser at IDS Skincare, which IDS recommended to help with skin rejuvenation and brightening, and also pigmentation reduction. I understand that this laser could be done monthly as the intensity is not that high, which also means that the downtime is shorter (about 1 - 2 days), and is good for maintenance.
Skincare is definitely something I care deeply about — evident by how I changed my entire lifestyle (stopped drinking alcohol almost entirely and established a regular sleeping routine) just to decrease breakouts. This came after years of being plagued with skin problems since puberty hit me like a train.
Having healthy looking skin is everybody's dream, but not everyone has flawless skin. Balanced diet and lifestyle, sufficient sleep and the use of right skincare products play a part in achieving healthy looking skin. Everyone's skin condition is different and will have different product needs. Therefore, it is important to seek advice from Aesthetic professional to assess our skin problems and prescribed the right products for us.
I have been waiting all this while for a skin savior for my skin’s woes, so I was exceedingly happy!! The doctors and staff are highly trained at the IDS and they are committed to provide quality service and customer satisfaction, which one can find present in all their clinic procedures and processes!
I need a big pat on my back for adhering to a proper skincare routine for the last 3 months and I have definitely seen the benefits of not changing the brand frequently. I had a follow up visit in the second week of February in order to observe the improvement in my skin and to complete the required treatment.
Recently, I get to hear about this aesthetic clinic called IDS and they offered me to hop onto a skincare journey with them! They have two branches, one at Novena and the other at Orchard. Heard a lot of good reviews about it both from online and by mouth, so I decided to give it a go!
Since the start of 2020, I have been wearing less makeup and frankly, I haven’t been able to keep up with my skin care routine due to my hectic schedule of juggling home and work life. On top of that, wearing a face mask for long hours on a daily basis has caused my jaw area to break out. So I’m very grateful to Innovative Dermatological Solutions (IDS) for inviting me on this journey to better skin.
I am really excited to write about this because it is a very amazing product. There are a few things I tend to look out for in my skincare/makeup routine and flawless, good skin is ranked number 1. A good base product has to have 4 qualities - colour, consistency, finish and lasting effects. I will talk about each shortly.
Never been on a proper skincare for a very long time. With my current lifestyle, not getting enough sleep and irregular skincare routine. My skin are not well taken care of. Blah. Whenever My husband and I visit my parent place, They always said that I look very tired and My dark circle are getting worst each time.
Janiqueel visits the new IDS hybrid flagship at the International Building and leaves VERY impressed, indeed, with the store and the products. The snazzy, new space on the second floor of the International Building on Orchard has a new skin and it’s beautiful. I went for a consultation and was wowed by the extensive layout and the depth of professionalism that greeted me there.
Growing up, I've never had the luck to enjoy a smooth, flawless complexion. And while I was feeling lucky enough to be only experiencing a few blemishes here and there during puberty while my peers battled with full-face acne problems; my luck soon ran out and I found myself battling a serious case of adult acne in my early twenties. Needless to say, that dark period left me scarred for life (LITERALLY) and the acne problem followed me well into my 30s in the form of period breakouts and now, the dreadful maskne (mask acne).
Growing up, my Mom always told me never to pop my pimples and to just let them go away naturally. I always followed her advice because she has the best skin ever (she also never used facial wash her entire life; just water), but now that I’m in my thirties, I think that it’s about time I stopped taking matters into my own hands and sought a professional’s advice regarding this.
One of the feelings I love most in the world is driving out on a sunny weekday afternoon to a posh, elegant salon with relaxing music, to pamper yourself. I’m very thankful to have built a life from scratch at such a young age where I have the luxury of time and money and the energy to enjoy it both! So after a particularly hectic week, I was certainly excited to embark on a new skincare journey with IDS Clinic!
IDS is a brand which is endorsed by many influencers and some of them have been using IDS products for years. They also talked about the efficacy of these products and how their skin has improved noticeably after using them. I was really excited to try them for myself.
2020 has been a year of adjustments. The months of confinement during circuit breaker (lockdown) saw me slacking in my skin care. As we march into 2021, I thought it would be only kind to myself to start afresh with a proper skin care regime with IDS.
