Who doesn’t want glowing, radiant skin? To most of us, that is the literal definition of #skincaregoals. Achieving it, though, is definitely a little harder than it looks. Most of the time, it doesn’t seem possible, especially if you’re looking to obtain such effects through a regular skincare routine.

Or is it? If you’re looking to get a luminous complexion without having to leave the house, listen up, because Daily Vanity is here to give you some tips on how to make your skincare routine the best experience it can be. Amazing results? Definitely included.

1. Set the mood

Setting the right atmosphere is just important if you’re looking to enhance your usual skincare routine, right? Relaxation is the aim of the game here, so make sure your settings reflect that by dimming the lights, bringing out a scented candle or two, and laying out your favourite towels.

DV Tip: Pick a scent that you like, or opt for candles with calming scents such as lemongrass and verbena if you’d like an extra relaxing effect!

2. Pick a relaxing playlist

Look up calming or meditative soundtracks to play as you go through your skincare routine. You don’t have to get too fancy with it, really. Just pick a selection of songs that relaxes you.

DV Tip: Spotify has a great selection of playlists for every occasion. YouTube playlists are a great option as well!

3. Cleanse

You know the drill. A good skincare routine always begin with cleansing your skin of any dirt, impurities, and buildups, so grab your favourite cleanser and get to it. If you’re looking to really give yourself a thorough cleanse, though, we recommend double cleansing: put on a cleansing oil to attract the oil, dirt, and makeup impurities to the surface. Wash it off after, then grab the cleanser that you use on a daily basis. Trust us, you’ll be able to feel the difference immediately.

DV Tip: We recommend using lukewarm water to wash off your face, as water that’s too cold can close up your pores and too hot water can sensitise your skin or inflict damage, like breaking capillaries.

4. Exfoliate

Exfoliating is a crucial step to any great skincare routine, so be sure to pick one that is suitable for your skin! Too harsh an exfoliant can wreck havoc on your complexion, opening up lesions and even causing infections. Our pick? The Thomson Wellth 2-Step Skin Peel. We’ve been hearing rave reviews about the brand’s skincare range lately, with users lauding over this 2-Step Skin peel amongst others. The other notable products are the Apple Stem Cell Serum, Stem Cell Activator Mask, and Dark Spot Corrector.

The Thomson Wellth 2-Step Skin Peel contains mandelic acid (derived from almonds) that minimises skin reactions and irritation, with its larger molecule size— as compared to those usually found in traditional salicylic and glycolic acid, that is— causing less friction, thus making it ideal for those with sensitive skin types.

The first step is actually a gentle peel that helps rid your skin of dead skin cells, blackheads, whiteheads, and blemishes. It also reduces pore size as well as lightens pigmentation and scars, leaving behind a considerably improved, even-toned complexion. The second step, on the other hand, involves a hyaluronic serum that contains Azulene, an ingredient known to provide relief for redness and irritation. This makes it perfect for those with highly sensitive skin, with its deeply hydrating properties helping restore moisture to your skin as well.

It even comes in travel-friendly sachets for one-time use, which makes it all the more hygienic. Another time saving element? It’s a leave-on treatment, which means you don’t even have to wash it off, after. Talk about maximum convenience!

The Thomson Wellth 2-Step Skin Peel retails for SGD21.90 for a box of 5 sets.

The full Thomson Wellth skincare range is available at both ThomsonBaby and Lazada. You may also purchase them at Thomson Wellth Clinics at Scotts Medical Centre and Novena Medical Centre, as well as at the Thomson Medical Centre ParentCraft Shop and Retail Pharmacy. Free shipping is available.

5. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!

The next step to a great skincare regime? Moisturising, to seal in all those benefits. Plus, if you’re heading out after, it makes the perfect base for foundation application. Opt for a trusty favourite of yours.


6. Mask throughout the week!

Thomson Wellth Stem Cell Activator Mask

Now that your dead skin cells have peeled off after a day or two, maintain it by applying a mask over the course of the next week to keep skin hydrated and speed up the skin regeneration process. We recommend the Thomson Wellth Stem Cell Activator Mask, which is suitable for all skin types and for daily use! Made from a biocellulose material, this mask is packed with ingredients that are great for your skin. Think: Coconut Fibre, which contains anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and soothing properties, EGF, which stimulates cell growth, and Peptides, that helps boost collagen production.

Yup! Not only does this mask help keep skin hydrated, it also stimulates skin regeneration and collagen growth. Apply it throughout the week to achieve the maximum benefits for your skin!

Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes, then pat the excess serum until it is fully absorbed to see maximum effects.

The Thomson Wellth Stem Cell Activator Mask retails for SGD59.90 for a box of 5 pieces.


Thomson Wellth Apple Stem Cell Serum
Thomson Wellth Dark Spot Corrector

Complete your new and improved skincare routine by adding the Thomson Wellth Apple Stem Cell Serum and Dark Spot Corrector to it. The serum moisturises the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and prevents the formation of wrinkles as well. It is also free from parabens, artificial fragrances, and alcohol.

The dark spot corrector, on the other hand, repairs and lightens uneven skin tones, imparting radiance and luminosity all over the skin.

Thomson Wellth Uv

Don’t forget to also apply a good sunblock with high SPF protection. The Thomson Wellth UV Shield is our top pick as it provides a SPF60 PA+++ protection. This high performance UV sunblock is light-weight and non-greasy, which makes it perfect for our humid climate!

The full Thomson Wellth skincare range is available at both ThomsonBaby and Lazada. You may also purchase them at Thomson Wellth Clinics at Scotts Medical Centre and Novena Medical Centre, as well as at the Thomson Medical Centre ParentCraft Shop and Retail Pharmacy. Free shipping is available.
