Skin Updates!

So Mel and I have been to New York Skin Solutions for my facial treatments for about 5 times already and here’s to share with you guys on our skin progress!

After our last treatment recently, we did a skin analysis using New York Skin Solutions’s scanning equipment.

Here’s some before and after shots of my skin condition:

Less clogged, and you can see that my skin has more collagen now (the zig zag lines are collagen within the skin). With more collagen my skin will become naturally more hydrated and hence less oily. Those black spots you see are very stubborn “dirt” that has accumulated within my skin for a long time due to lack of proper extractions and they can only be improved after a few more rounds of treatment.

My skin used to have random acne popping out here and there and that causes alot of scarring. Ever since I’ve started my skin treatments here, I find that my skin is less clogged and more radiant looking. It also feels smoother and more supple thanks to the collagen treatment!

You can see that my skin is smoother and more radiant now!

I also see significant improvement on my chin area which used to be soooo clogged!!

For Mel, his face feels less oily as compared to the past and one drastic difference is that his face is so much brighter.

If you’ve remembered, this was his ‘before’ scans:

Which was super dull, clogged and really dirty. I get goosebumps whenever I see this.

This was his most recent scan:

His face doesn’t absorb the collagen as well as mine but it’s now much brighter and less clogged.


Thank you New York Skin Solutions for taking such good care of our faces!!

I cannot stress the importance of facial treatments enough, which I’ve mentioned in my previous post.

Importance of facial treatments!

Everyone should incorporate facial treatments as part of their skincare routines. Having experienced my skin with and without facial treatments, I can definitely feel the benefits of facials. And it’s very important to find somewhere that is professional and has good beauticians. So far Mel and I already had 4-5 facial treatments with New York Skin Solutions and our skin has showed great improvements!

So why should you get facials done regularly? Our face is constantly exposed to dirt and dust outside and it’s important to get our pores cleansed. Pimples arise because our pores are clogged which leads to the growth of bacteria that causes pimples. So clearing your pores regularly would ensure lesser breakouts!

During my facial session with New York Skin solutions, my beautician uses steam to safely open up the pores to get ready for the extraction step. This also allows the pores to breathe. My most dreaded part of facials is the extraction which is really a torture. But at New York Skin Solutions, a softening mask is put before that so that extraction would be easier and faster too.

And one super important point to note: If you don’t know how to correctly pop your zit, leave it to the professionals!! Ever since I started my facials here, I make it a point never to squeeze pimples myself because I would end up doing more damage to my skin. I also constantly remind Mel not to squeeze his zits cos he’d scratch his face and cause a deep wound which leads to acne scarring which is even harder to repair. The people at New York Skin Solutions are well trained and they’re really fast and precise at popping zits and extracting blackheads!

After the extraction, a collagen treatment will be done on my face which is so cooling and shiok! Collagen helps my skin to naturally repair itself so it’s good to pump up more levels of this especially as we age. After this step my skin is always glowing!!

Lastly, a soft and hard mask will be placed and sometimes I get so relaxed that I really dozed off. I see facials as a good way for me to just relax, get away from my phone for awhile and to just really pamper myself.

Taken right after my facial session.. Feeling my face all nice and cleansed!!

Here at New York Skin Solutions, you’ll be able to get detailed scans on your skin condition and you can see what’s going on underneath.. Something that you’ll never be able to do with your naked eye. Going for facials allow an expert to help you identify skin conditions, and educate you on how to treat them. Like how I’d never know that I’m using the wrong skincare products if I never visited them!! Same for Mel because after eliminating all the wrong facial products, his skin is now less oily. And I encourage all guys to go for facials too!! They’re not only meant for ladies! Both of us not incorporate facials as part of our dates haha.

Skincare Routine!

Many people tend to use over-the-counter products and some don’t even know that they are using the wrong types of products on their face. Like me for example.. Previously I was using facial cleanser meant for acne skin. But in fact my skin is not suitable for such products because acne products tend to be drying which causes my skin to become dry on the outside but oily on the inside!

So ever since I’ve started my facial treatments with New York Skin Solutions and found out what are my skin conditions, I’ve also changed my skincare regimen completely. Here’s what I’m currently using:

From left: 2 kinds of cleansers, moisturiser, toner and sunblock


1 of the cleanser is to ensure that makeup is removed completely, while the other is for deep cleansing. I used to use a cleanser day and night but now I’m only using these at night. In the morning I just simply wash my face with water followed by Toner and my moituriser. According to Joanne (my consultant), when we wake up, there are good nutrients left from the products we apply the night before so just washing the face with water is enough.


I really love the moisturiser (mine is for dry skin) because it’s super lightweight, doesn’t feel oily at all and is easily absorbed into the skin. The sunblock is not greasy too compared to others I’ve tried before. And most importantly, it doesn’t feel like it clogs my skin. My skincare routine has become so simple I’m loving it!

Above is Mel’s skincare products that he’s using. His cleanser is the same as mine but he’s using a soothing cream (which acts as a moituriser) and a serum (for oil control)

Previously he was also using products meant for acne skin which drys out his skin and makes it even more oily as well!

I tried this soothing cream and it’s so nice! Has this cooling effect on the face and also very lightweight.

I like that all New York Skin Solution’s products come with a pump dispenser which is more hygienic.


Mel’s skin has become so much brighter after his treatments.. And this was taken after only the 2nd treatment! The other day I looked at him and I was like:”Wa why you suddenly become more handsome” Lolol.


I’ve also skipped putting makeup when I go out to let my skin breathe and recover and also because I’m confident with how my skin looks now. You can still see some scars left from my acne previously but overall my skin is less bumpy and so much less clogged. The other day someone even commented that she thought I had light foundation on when I wasn’t wearing any makeup!
