Some of the oils may be bleached or deodorised and these chemical residues may remain in the final product. In contrast, unrefined oils are non-toxic; processed via a cold press technique without heat or chemicals. The end result is healthier oil with its nutrition retained.

mosche grand hyatt organic hair colours inoa review
More people are going into organic hair dye, so I decided to visit Mosche Grand Hyatt to give it a try too. I was recommended INOA, by Loreal Professional, a leading no ammonia permanent hair colour range with Oil Delivery System (ODS2) technology, that uses oil molecules instead of ammonia to open the hair shaft and soak in the dye.

singapore lifestyle blogger reviews lifestream labo camelina oil
According to the Singapore Heart Foundation, Cancer, Coronary heart diseases and Diabetes are some of the top killer diseases in Singapore. Every day, 16 people die from cardiovascular disease ( heart diseases and stroke ) in Singapore. Hence, it is never too late to start adopting heart-healthy habits such as choosing the right kind of cooking oil like those containing Vitamin E, an antioxidant, so as to reduce your risk of Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer.

lifeststream labo camelina oil comparison chart
Personally, I believe in the importance of cooking with good oil. After learning of its heart-healthy effects, I have since switched to using Olive Oil in all my cooking, except for deep-frying on rare occasions. No doubt prices are dearer, but health is more important.

best cooking oil comparison chart
Just when I thought I am using the best gourmet oil, I have found an even better culinary oil - the LABO Camelina Oil ( 樂保亚麻荠籽油 ) with a high smoke point of 245°C, suitable for all types of cooking from Salad to Deep-Frying and Baking. This is great since most Asian cooking methods use high heat, so it is a perfect substitute for Olive oil which has a low smoke point .

EHA Sun Shield 24Hr with SPF 100
Do you know that sunscreens with a higher SPF give you more protection from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is linked to skin cancer, in addition to premature skin ageing?

Are you one of those who apply your sunscreen at the beginning of the day and forget all about it?

Are you aware that you have to reapply the same amount of sunscreen every two hours, according to Skin Cancer Foundation? People often forget that sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least every two hours, unless you are using a 24-hr sunscreen. Also, always reapply sunscreen immediately after swimming or sweating for maximum protection.

spf 100 eha sun shield 24hr review
Doctors believe that most skin cancers can be avoided by preventing sun damage. It is of utmost importance that we learn to protect ourselves from harmful UV rays, fighting against skin cancer and of course preventing wrinkles and sunspots. UVA rays are the causes of premature ageing of the skin and responsible for photosensitivity reactions. Hence, it is vital that we apply a sunscreen and application should never be restricted to summer alone.

CoolMini for Double Chin, Does Fat Freezing Really Work?

Zeltiq CoolMini Before and After Photos
As age catches up, my double chin is also getting more obvious although having a double chin doesn’t necessarily mean one is fat. During one of my visits to EHA Clinic, a reputable aesthetic clinic located in Shaw Centre, I raised my concern to Dr Tam who recommended the Zeltiq CoolMini as one of the options to remove double chin without undergoing any surgery.

Zeltiq CoolSculpting Machine
Fat freezing is not new to me as I had previously gone through CoolSculpting treatment for my tummy, a well-accepted procedure for freezing away stubborn fats. Although CoolSculpting has been around for years, the Zeltiq CoolMini applicator was only introduced in Singapore sometime last year.

The smaller applicator FDA-approved fat-freezing machine, CoolMini is designed to target areas like Double Chin, Armpits and Knee areas by freezing away the stubborn fat and contouring without any surgery or downtime.

coolsculpting zeltiq coolmini double chin before after results
I had just gone for my 1-month review recently, and certainly saw some positive results. Although best result is achieved in 3 months, one can see a noticeable improvement in just 1 month. Generally, one session is all you need; you will get results in just 1 or 2 visits.

The popular non-invasive fat reduction process uses crypolipolysis freezing technology that freezes fats faster than other cells, so there is no damage to the surrounding tissues. Zeltiq CoolSculpting has been clinically tested to help reduce fats by up to 20% of the treated area!

So if you have a Double Chin and wanna take years off you to achieve a younger look, I am going to walk you through my CoolSculpting experience with the Zeltiq CoolMini in this post. I will also talk about Diamond Pola Neck Treatment, another option to consider.

Getting Rid of Keloid Scar with Lasers and Steroid Injection

eha clinic fractional co2 laser for scar
A #Keloid scar is one in which there is an overgrowth of dense fibrous tissue. This develops after the injury has healed, and it usually has a smooth top and pink or purple in colour.

luxury haven knee injury treatment
I had a nasty fall last year, and left with an open wound in my knee cap. I failed to stop the bleeding that day and panicked. Alone and totally at a loss, unsure if I should go to a doctor, I recalled having the mobile number of Dr Tam of EHA Clinic, my aesthetic doctor for 5 years now. I quickly snapped couple of photos and What’s App Dr Tam who responded almost instantly, asking me to head to the nearest doctor.

I managed to skip the long queue at the clinic after the nurse saw my knee bleeding profusely. The GP advised me to go to the hospital for stitches, or I could have the wound glued on the spot there. I was too weak to make it to the hospital alone, hence opted for the glue instead.

This post will document the healing stages of my Keloid Scar, and the different methods used to treat it. So if you or any members of your family with a keloid scar formed after a surgery or a bad fall, I hope my experience will come in handy should anyone of you need to remove the keloid and lighten the scar.
