Hazy days are here again in Singapore.
The clear skies turn yellow and brown, as the smog and dust from the burning forests in the neighbouring regions hit the island.
Aesop’s Bitter Orange Astringent Toner is a good option for humid and polluted environments. This refreshing astringent toner is a blend of bitter orange, witch hazel and rosemary leaf. Soak a cotton pad with it to wipe away pollutants on the skin surface. Like most Aesop products, this toner has that relaxing spa-like scent to refresh the mind.
The Oil-Free Facial Hydrating Serum is a viscous, gel-serum moisturiser with plenty of antioxidants to combat the free radicals caused by pollutants. Made with aloe vera gel, Ylang Ylang and panthenol (vitamin B5 and a humectant), it is suitable for combination, oily, or sensitive skin. It leaves a thin film on skin which keeps it supple.
I also love this combination for days when my skin feels oily, and just needs a lightweight serum/ moisturiser to perk it up.
This duo is also a great addition to a man’s skincare routine, as it is relatively fuss-free.
