Plastic surgery is a personal choice and many celebrities have opened up about going under the knife or even reversing it.

Chrissy Teigen announced on her Instagram that she is planning to undergo surgery to remove her breast implants after her fans raised questions over a post she tweeted a few days ago. In her tweet, she mentioned that she got a COVID test since she will be undergoing surgery soon. Her followers got curious as to what kind of surgery she will be undergoing.

Our very honest and candid Teigen took it to Instagram to announce her decision and said, "Hi hi! So I posted myself getting a covid test on twitter, as I’m getting surgery soon. A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out! They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me! All good. I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat. Which is all a tit is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat." 

 

 

Apparently, Chrissy Teigen had plans to remove her breast implants some time back but she put her plan on hold due to the COVID situation. She has now decided to go ahead with it but in the current situation, she had to get a COVID test before she can proceed with it.

Chrissy Teigen's post was met with positivity and support from her followers and we too, hope for the best for her!

 

 

7 Summer Makeup Trends for 2020

Most of us haven't touched our makeup very much since the stay-home period started except for the occasional Zoom meetings, or when you are up for a selfie for the 'gram.

Summer Makeup Trends 2020

However, with so many summer makeup looks popping up on our feed, it doesn't hurt to start saving those summer makeup looks in our folder so that we are ready when we can all start going out again.

From the Korean peach makeup looks to graphic liners and pastel eyeshadows, we round up 7 of the hottest makeup trends for summer 2020 so that you can master all those looks now that you have more time in your hands while staying home. 

 

1. Glowing skin

Think of summer and we think of the sun, sea, and sky, plus that sunkissed glow on our skin. A good skincare regime to keep your skin healthy and a solid highlighter to bring out that glow on your skin will create the perfect base for a summer makeup look.

2. Bold and beautiful blush

Unlike the subtle hint of blush that we are used to seeing, this summer calls for bold, pink cheeks. There is no need to be shy about layering them on this season because they are meant to be seen.

3. Lovely purple 

Lavender, or a muted lilac eyeshadow will brighten up your eyes and add that fun element into your makeup look this season. It's feminine, yet playful, and outright flattering.

4. The 80s comeback

We used to fear the comeback of the '80s makeup because of how loud they were, and it was a beauty era that we didn't want to go back to. Lo and behold, the nostalgic trends made a comeback and we actually started to welcome the 80s back into our arms again. Jump onto the '80s bandwagon with bold eyeshadows. If you are still a little shy to go all out, try muted tones of blues and pinks first to jumpstart your engine.

5. Graphic eyeliners

Slightly futuristic, but the graphic eyeliner, or some call it floating eyeliner look has been gaining traction on the runways. Black and white graphic eyeliners are the top favourites, but since it is summer, take the look up a notch with some colours.

7. Soft peach

K-beauty lovers are no stranger to this classic Korean peach makeup look. It hasn't gone away, and monochrome peach makeup is still here to stay for a while. Besides, peach is such a flattering colour so there's really nothing to complain about.

Move over, cat eyes. The fox eye makeup look is here to take over.

The cat eye look is a classic but the fox eye makeup look that is made popular by supermodels like the Hadid sisters and Kendall Jenner is getting a lot of attention lately. The fox eye makeup look seeks to elongate and lift our eyes with nothing but some eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara (add falsies if you must), and is inspired by the upturned eyes of a fox (duh).

There are various versions of the fox eye look, and you can either do the Erin Parson version with the empty space filled up with white liner, or the Brianna Fox version that we usually see on the runways. Whichever type of foxy eye you prefer, all of them uses pretty much the same technique of elongating the inner eye corner with a little triangle, and lifting the outer corners upwards with makeup. Don't worry if you are not sure what I'm talking about, the two videos below will answer all your questions.

Watch Brianna Fox and Erin Parson videos and learn how to create that trendy fox eye makeup look. Both versions are a little different, so let us know which one you prefer!

Hair Accessories Trend: Scrunchies Are Back

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Wednesday, 20 May 2020 07:00

We previously wrote about the "3 Hair Accessory Trends We Will Be Seeing This Year" with scrunchies being one of them, and we were so right. Scrunchies are no longer memories from your teenage days. They are now spotted on celebrities and Fashion Week street style icons.

The humble scrunchie that is so comfy and convenient are often used when we are lounging about in the comfort of our home, hidden from the sights of the outside world since 2000. However, the recent comeback of all things nostalgic brought the scrunchie to the centre stage again and this cute hair accessory is experiencing a surge in searches on Pinterest.

Wear the scrunchie with a ponytail, both high and low; a half ponytail, a bun, or even with your braids. In fact, there are so many different ways you can wear it to add some style points to your hairstyles. Use a bold coloured on to let it stand out from the rest of your outfit, or match it with a colour on your outfit to pull the look together.

Let's take a look at how some of our favourite celebrities are wearing scrunchies.

Sculptra for Natural Volumisation at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Monday, 18 May 2020 10:25

Some things are as certain as death and taxes..... like ageing (cue the heavy sigh). As much as I exercise and hang upside down (from my hammock) and try my best to eat well to support healthy skin, I can't help but notice how some parts of my face just seems to lose some volume. And this is largely due to the ageing of the body, gravity and bone resorption.

In particular, the areas around my temples and cheeks just seems a little more sunken. And no, it is not because I lost weight. When I compare my current photos to my photos taken 12 years ago when I actually weighed less than I do now, I can see that my face looked a little more sunken than before.

My recent visit to Halley Medical Aesthetics to speak with Doctor Terence Tan about Sculptra as a solution to my concern was highly informative and it was just the answer to what I was looking for to help my body generate its own collagen.

With Doctor Terence Tan. Impressed with his strong knowledge and skills in his field.

Consultation

 

What is Sculptra?

“Sculptra is for long-lasting volumisation and it is for people who like the concept of having the body generate collagen for volumisation,” explains Dr. Terence Tan, Director of Halley Medical Aesthetics.

Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which are used to fill up a localised area of treatment, Sculptra is a type of collagen-stimulating filler that uses the ingredient, poly-l-lactic (PLLA), to stimulate the body to generate its own collagen for natural volumisation. The effect is natural, gives long-lasting volumisation, and is great for people who prefer letting the body generate collagen naturally for volumisation. A big hands up from me for this!

The unique thing about Sculptra is how it encourages natural collagen growth and rejuvenation from within the body in order to achieve transformation and rejuvenation. Now, this does take time and patience, so don't expect immediate results. Like they say, good things are worth the wait.

A total of three Sculptra treatments spaced six weeks to two months apart are required in order to achieve the desired result. I like this idea too because then there is a regular follow up to the process. The after-treatment care following each Sculptra treatment is also important for a smoother and natural look and this means having to massage the treatment area for five minutes, five times a day, for five days after each treatment. 

I gotta say, I thought this massaging the face thing was gonna be tiring. But you know what? By day 3 I was actually enjoying it because it actually started feeling like a pampering session, haa!

 

Why is Sculptra different from Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers?

To start this off, you have to understand this about dermal fillers, which are medical products that they sculpt the face for more definition and can help to restore skin and facial contours to their former youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers are made of various kinds of materials that have been developed to be injected into the skin and can be grouped into two categories:
- hyaluronic acid fillers
- non-hyaluronic acid or collagen-stimulating fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is an ingredient that is safe for most people. It is actually a natural compound found in our skin, and is responsible for many functions in our body such as hydration and lubrication of our joints. It also helps with tissue repair and stimulates the production of the connective tissue that keeps our skin looking supple (i.e. collagen).

Collagen-stimulating fillers, which Sculptra is on the other hand, uses ingredients that stimulate our body’s own collagen for that long-lasting effect. They are otherwise known as bio-stimulating fillers and contain safe, synthetically produced compounds that help to volumise the treatment area and stimulates the body’s fibroblasts to produce collagen. The results are long-lasting and the volumisation that you eventually achieve is all natural. 

 

The treatment

Watch the video to see how my consultation and treatment went:

 

After consulting with Dr. Terence Tan, we established that I would be doing a facial rejuvenation with Sculptra and the areas we would be working on include:

- Temporal area
- Midface
- Nasolabial lines
- Cheeks
- Marionette lines

Addressing the areas that bother me. Those darned lines....

 

We took some before shots from the front and sides before some numbing cream was applied.

The powder in these bottles has to be reconstituted with sterile water before it can be used.

 

Once the numbing cream took effect within minutes, Dr. Terence Tan started to work his magic.

Administering Sculptra under my skin.

I have to point out how at ease I felt during the treatment and was able to carry on having a conversation with Dr. Terence Tan throughout the very short process. And two things I'd like to point out that made this possible are first, the skills and experience of Dr. Terence Tan, and second, the use of the micro-cannula needle.

 

The Micro-Cannula Needle " Magic Needle"

In traditional cosmetic procedures, doctors use a rigid, sharp classic blunt-tip needle. Unfortunately, such needles tend to induce pain and ecchymosis, resulting in longer recovery time. The Magic Needle which really isn't a needle but a micro-cannula, is designed to gently slide into the skin and its flexibility allows the practitioner to control the movement. 

Because of how blunt and flexible the micro-cannula needle is, there is minimal pain and less discomfort while getting better results as it distributes the filler more evenly.

A preview of my Sculptra results

Mid-way through treatment, Dr. Terence Tan took a photo to show me the rejuvenation ability of Sculptra by comparing the side with Sculptra injected with the other side that has yet to be treated. You can see from the photo that the right side of my temple is no longer sunken in and my right cheeks are fuller compared to the left, which is gaunt. My jawline is also more plump and youthful.

 

The Before and After comparison

The result of Sculptra is final only after the full course of three Sculptra treatments are completed. Even then, Dr. Terence Tan explained that the lifting effect seen in these photos, which is the result of the saline mixed with the Sculptra, gives a good idea of how the treated area will eventually look once collagen generates and fills up the area. 

I really like how there is no downtime and I was off to my usual activities immediately after the treatment.  Stay tuned to read about my experience and results in 3 months time! Time for me to go do my 5 mins of massage, 5 times a day for 5 days!
