Agree or disagree: A flawless back of a woman is a highway that takes the eye to the admiration of a lady’s silhouette.
I feel that a gal’s bare back is the most underplayed asset. Everyone’s always oohing and aahing over cleavage and a smooth bare back gets very little love. I think the back of a woman is very sexy and I, for one, am a huge fan of backless dresses because the femme fatale factor is unleashed only when I turn around. Gotta have a bit of mystery, right? :p
I was rather surprised when I learned that many people in Singapore aren’t all that confident when it comes to their backs. And I was even more surprised to find out that many people have acne breakouts on their backs too. :O Wottt!!? I’m guessing this must be caused by the humid weather, which leads to excess perspiration, causing clogged pores and hair follicles on the back and then BAM! you got yourself a zit parade. I have been blessed with a relatively smooth and blemish-free back, which made it a perfect canvas for my inks. ;) Heh. But I can imagine how uncomfortable and downright frustrating it must be to have a back full of acnes because when you lean back against a chair or lying down in bed, you’re directly putting pressure on those angry zits so it must be damn painful. Ouch!
I suppose you can rely on home remedies such as using a back brush when you shower and use exfoliating body scrub. But it’ll be a whole lot better experience if you can go to a spa and have someone cleanse your back for you, won’t it? As far as I know there hasn’t been a spa that offers a “back facial” including extractions until now. Aster Spring has recently launched its Full Back Acne Radiant Treatment for those who are plagued with back acne!
This is an advanced full back acne treatment specially formulated for those who desire an ultra-radiant and smooth complexion on their back. Skin is thoroughly cleansed before a microdermabrasion machine works on the back to exfoliate dead skin cells. The exfoliation process aids to lighten uneven skin tone and texture and also to refine pores. Light extraction is then administered to clear skin of impurities and acne. The treatment ends with a deep cleansing masque and antiseptic ray to regulate sebum production and prevent future skin breakouts.
This treatment is highly recommended for those with rough oily backs with open pores, backs prone to acne breakouts or to treat post-acne marks and scars on your back. FYI, Full Back Acne Radiant Treatment is only available at the following outlets: The Centrepoint, Plaza Singapura, Sembawang Shopping Centre – White Sands (Pasir Ris), NEX (Serangoon), The Clementi Mall.
I am very happy to share that this full back acne treatment uses products from Dermalogica (shown above), which if you haven’t heard, is a premium US-based skincare line. For many years before I moved to Singapore, I went to this facial place regularly in NYC and they used Dermalogica products which were really good for my skin. Dermalogica is now exclusively available at Aster Spring and pretty much all of the treatments there use Dermalogica products. Yay!
You can also purchase Dermalogica products as retail items at any of the Aster Spring outlets. I have found that the prices are comparable to the US and Aster Spring carries a very comprehensive range of all Dermalogica products.
If you’re a newbie, shown above are Dermalogica skin kits containing popular products in travel-friendly sizes, to get you acquainted with the products. (Or, given the current holiday atmosphere, these make great gifts also!)
If/when you go to any treatment at Aster Spring, please do not hesitate to ask for Dermalogica samples!
Not long ago, I attended the launch of a brand new Dermalogica product: SkinPerfect Primer SPF30. This product is kinda like an advanced version of a BB Cream and it is a makeup primer plus moisturizer in one. The Dermalogica SkinPerfect Primer SPF30 smoothes away fine lines, brightens and primes for flawless skin and to prep for make-up application, with velvety silicones that creates an instantly smooth surface. I love the velvety finish that this product creates on my face and I have started using this on its own without additional foundation over it, especially because it also contains sunscreen (which I must use). The best part is it has anti-aging properties. *wootz* This is very quickly becoming one of my fave daily go-to products nowadays.
There are still tons of Dermalogica products which I haven’t tried at home yet, but they had been used here and there now and then during my facial treatments when I was in NYC. Dermalogica is really very popular in the US and those who have used the products rave endlessly about them. So I am pretty excited that now I can acquire them in Singapore through Aster Spring and will slowly check them out to see what works on my skin.
Let’s have a show of hands. How many of you have heard of Dermalogica? If you’re already using Dermalogica, please share with me (and my readers) which are your fave products and why you are such a fan. :D
