Proper Skincare For A Healthy Glow
Accelerated Skin Ageing Is Real
Combining a good regime and proper skincare for a healthy glow. Our skin is the largest organ of our body and it serves as a layer of protection of our overall being.
Skin ageing is, however, unavoidable as we grow older especially after we hit our 30s.
Coupled with our current lifestyle that prioritises everything else apart from ourselves, skin ageing becomes more apparent. Stress, lack of sleep, eating at irregular times, smoking, the over-consumption of caffeine, alcohol and sugar, among others, contribute to the quick deterioration of our skin.
However, it’s difficult to find the right products for our Asian skin.
South East Asia countries are prone to hot, humid and dry weather most of the time. Asian skin comes with its own unique set of skin issues which makes Western formulations half-effective on our skin.
Heat and humidity will cause dry skin, where moisture escapes in the form of sweat. Sweating is a healthy process for our skin.
Oil-producing glands called sebaceous glands are connected to our pores which secrete oil that naturally hydrates skin. However, when dead skin, dirt, and oil are mixed together, it will cause build-up. This is how acne, blackhead and whitehead are formed.
Emotional stress is a major factor for breakouts. Once we are stress, a chemical response will affect our skin to ineffectively repair itself. Hence, it is extremely important that everyone takes great care of their skin.
Living & Pace
The beauty industry is a multi-billion industry worldwide. In Malaysia, the personal care segment alone garnered RM 1.36 billion, as of March 2019!
Currently, local Malaysian brands are on the rise. Our export trade rose by 100% in June 2018 compared to June 2017.
Living & Pace is a new beauty brand from Malaysia with a focus on creating affordable and effective skincare products. The lack of well-researched skincare products in the market became Living & Pace’s main factor in developing their products.
The brand encourages that beauty is a form of self-care. ‘In this fast-paced ear, people lose touch with their own feelings and lives so the message we want to say with Living & Pace is to love yourself and carve some ME time.” says Elston Mak, founder of Living & Pace.
Despite a busy life, it is also a personal joy. Such as breathing in fresh air during holidays, that is the feeling which the brand wanted to portrait.
In the meantime, Living & Pace took the initiatives to work closely with formulators, scientists and chemists from Singapore, Japan, Korea and Franch to discuss and create the latest formula for proper skincare for a healthy glow.
