Pollution, UV rays, free radicals, stress — these are types of environmental stressors that can cause skin problems. But it takes just one to cause multiple skin woes such as dullness, ageing skin, dryness, sagging, and sensitised skin. Singaporeans deal with these issues daily due to our urbanite setting and humid environment. So how can you effectively manage these skin concerns? Targeted skincare solutions.
In this episode of BeauTea Talk, hosts Roanna and Becks share three skincare products for Singaporean skin made by homegrown face and vulva care brand Two Lips. Read on to know how these picks can benefit you achieve a healthy and radiant appearance.
For dull skin: Two Lips Diamond Gentle Vitamin C Brightening Serum
This clear serum is powered by ascorbyl glucoside, a form of vitamin C that's gentle and suitable even for sensitive skin. It's also formulated with hydrolysed collagen to help keep your skin firm and sodium hyaluronate to help it stay hydrated.
Why you need it: Vitamin C is always a great ingredient to have in your skincare routine. It's an antioxidant, which helps prevent dullness or discolouration caused by environmental stressors. The ingredient also helps improve skin texture.

For sagging skin: Two Lips De-crease Antioxidant-rich Cream
Marine water microalgae and Baikal skullcap are the hero ingredients of this skin-protecting cream for sensitised Singaporean skin. The two ingredients work together to protect your skin against free radical damage and repair your skin from the damage it's already experienced. Green tea extract and vitamin C supplement this by creating a shield against UV rays that can break down skin collagen, which can cause sagginess and loss of volume in your skin.
Why you need it: Sagging skin is an indication of skin ageing, so you need antioxidants to help prevent further damage.
