A simple search will reveal the dangerous natural DIY skincare remedies you should never ever be using on your face – think baking soda and raw eggs. What then should we feed our skin with? Honey, green tea and bananas, are you using the best ingredients? Our skin deserves only the best! We ask 3 skin doctors from SW1 Clinic what will absolutely delight your skin and reward you with a youthful visage years to come.
“Vitamin C, or L-ascorbic acid, is a clear favourite among dermatologists,” said Dr Low Chai Ling, Founder of SW1 Clinic. It is undoubtedly one of the most powerful antioxidants available with its myriad of benefits. Champion in fighting off free radicals to protect skin, this heavy-duty ingredient is excellent for stimulating collagen and repairing signs of aging.
“As studies have shown UV damage lingers long after sun exposure, I recommend using antioxidants, like vitamin C, twice – in the morning and in the evening – for maximal coverage.
In fact, the only time you should give this vitamin a miss is if you have ultra-sensitive, ultra-reactive skin like rosacea,” added Dr Low.
Try: Citrine Pure Vitamin C Elixir and Powder. When combined, the Elixir activates the professional-grade, pure Vitamin C powder, creating a high-potency mixture that offers unparalleled skin brightening and rejuvenating benefits.

“Everyone can benefit from some Glutathione,” said Dr Kenneth Lee, Founder. Commonly known as the ‘mother’ of all anti-aging antioxidants, it neutralizes free radicals and inhibits melanin formation, thereby preventing pigmentation and brightening skin. “Glutathione is a must-have in any skincare regime. Why? This wonderous ingredient as it can revive and lengthen the life span of the average antioxidant like Vitamin C and E, enhancing their effects to supercharge your investment against all age-related skin woes,” explained Dr Lee.
Try: Pearl Eclat is one of their most popular add-on treatment after a laser or facial. It uses stem cell extracts and Glutathione touted as a skin-whitening, anti-aging complex to restore glow in complexions.

The essence of youth, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is the substance you want to replenish. “The HA levels in our bodies deplete with age,” said Dr Chua Han Boon, Aesthetic Doctor at SW1 Clinic. “Thus, an infusion of HA can undoubtedly jolt collagen synthesis, boost skin hydration for a supple and youthful-looking complexion.”
Try: SW1 Pure Gold Youth Reset Serum made of pure Hyaluronic serum powered with gold extracts and boosted with Vitamin E. In addition to protecting skin against environmental aggressors like pollution and UVA rays, it also soothes irritated and dry skin. Skin elasticity is restored and formation of wrinkles are prevented with the strengthening of skin against free radicals. In short, a bottle that works overtime to help you turn back the clock, giving you enviably healthy-looking skin.
