An Uplifting experience with Sinclair Pharmaceuticals

Image
Ever since I was a child, I've always strived to be a better version of myself as I move through the years be it through taking up courses to learn more, switching up my training routine, changing up the products that I use and of course improving the way that I look. Nothing against aging which is pretty much unavoidable, but as much as I can help it, I'd like to slow down the process and feel my best for as long as I can. iCare Medical and Wellness Clinic My recent visit to iCare Medical and Wellness Clinic taught me a few more things about aging as well as some of the latest techniques used now to help reverse that. Located at 22 Havelock Road, my first impression of the clinic was how warm and friendly the staff there are and I felt so welcome and at ease before my consultation with Dr. Larry Wu began.

Revamping the living space with Chroma Living

Image
 Let's face it..... with the amount of time we're spending at home ever since the pandemic started, most of us have made upgrades to our houses and the interior to make the living and working environment at home a more cosy and aesthetically pleasing one.  I too felt that need to make changes to our home in order for me to feel comfortable, at ease and just happy to be there. We actually moved to a new home in the second quarter of this year and with more room for our family of 6 (and a fur kid), it also gives me more free play to create different environments around the house too! One of the ways I managed to do this was with the professional help of Chroma Living. Custom Wallcoverings and Decorative Panels by Chroma Living Offering a variety of printed wallpaper, fluted panels and stone wall panels, Chroma Living has a long list when it comes to clients in the commercial sector. And with that fantastic track record providing professional services to its corporate clients, th

Laser Treatment with IDS Clinic  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.  I've never been one for lasers before, and my first time experiencing it was with IDS Clinic this year. Yes I'm in my 40s already and why haven't I tried it you might ask? Well, I'm a chicken when it comes to having laser treatments on my face. Maybe its the scary stories I've heard from the time I was younger, but yeah, that's really the main reason why I never tried it before. Till Dr. Ian Tan from IDS Clinic recommended it as my treatment on my third visit here.  Quite honestly I was a little scared and skeptical, but he assured that it would not be uncomfortable. So

The IDS Clinic (Innovative Dermatological Solutions) Journey - Second Visit

Image
On my first visit to IDS Clinic , I had my skin condition assessed and was prescribed a customised set of IDS Skincare products to use for a month before coming back for my second appointment where I would have a facial done as well.  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. My Second Visit: Pep.Blu DEEP Facial Now when it comes to keeping our skin lifted, I do think the massaging helps to a certain extent but there comes a point when it can't bring about any further improvements or reverse aging effects.  Well fret not, of course there are solutions. And one of these solutions I recently tried is the Pep.Blu DEEP Facial treatment at IDS Clinic.   This innovative treatment us

Semester recap of Nykki's British Council Journey

Image
In a blink of an eye, Nykki had completed her first semester at t he British Council Tampines outlet where she attended the British Council's enrichment programme and further developed her love for learning, reading, writing and even learning about different cultures.  From the time she started on the programme till a short few months later, Nykki had grown from a shy reader with little confidence in reading to one who tries to read complex dinosaur names! This is exactly what the British Council aims to achieve too- to develop independent and confident readers through a variety of activities, games and materials.  This is made possible because of the team of highly qualified and passionate teachers working with them.  Sending Nykki to the weekly enrichment classes has always been such a joy because she looks forward to very much and will often remind me that it's Wednesday and she needs to be sent for lessons there. And after each lesson she will excitedly tell me all that she

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. I first visited IDS Clinic over 3 months ago where I had my skin assessed by the Dr. Ian Tan and the clinic assistants. Only then were they able to prescribe a customised set of IDS Skincare products for me to take home.  I visited their outlet at Novena Specialist Center at 8 Sinaran Drive because it's more convenient for me and really like the set up of the clinic too. The first thing I noticed upon entering was that they they have a spacious sitting area and a dispensary where you can collect the prescribed skincare products after having your consultation and skin analysis done.
