Buro reviews: How to beat the ageing signs of stress the French way
Check into the skin rescue lounge
Clogged pores. Pigmentation. Dullness. Fine lines. If you’re scowling at all of the above, you’re suffering from urban skin woes not unlike the complexion conundrums commonly dogging most Singaporean women. Living in our fair garden city means our skin wears more than just makeup and pollution; the hectic lifestyle, stress-inducing nine to five and lack of sleep contribute to a lackluster countenance, on top of daily UV exposure in our ever-muggy climes. All of these factors snowball into external and internal stressors on the skin, and before you know it, you’re facing down the dreaded ticking biological clock when it comes to your appearance.
To that end, EstheClinic has launched a new suite of aesthetic treatments curated to suit busy urbanites looking to rid their skin issues without having to squeeze in the hassle of countless trips to the clinic. Lauded as the first-mover in aesthetic programmes that provide quick-fix skin solutions, the brand wields over two decades of experience, is armed with the latest technologies from France, and has been a firm go-to for French women for years (now you know their secret to looking good). Completely painless and non-invasive with immediate and lasting results, the new programmes — ‘Beat the Stress’, ‘Beat the Heat’, and ‘Beat the Clock’ — are right up our alley, particularly the first because lord knows we take 24/7 quite literally at Buro.

STAGE ONE: RADIO FREQUENCY (RF)
Post-cleanse, an oil lubricant is applied over the face to allow the RF’s handheld apparatus to glide smoothly over the skin. Going across the face in a combination of lifting strokes along the jawline up to the cheekbone, in circular strokes on the apples of the cheeks, and back and forth over the forehead, you’ll feel a comfortable heat throughout the process. This is followed by a smaller device designed to fit the contours of the eyes, which delivers a slight cooling sensation.
Likened to a warming face massage, the RF process helps to activate the skin and prep it for the next step, as well as to tighten and firm the facial contours for a more V-shaped appearance. FYI, this part easily puts you to sleep, and I totally succumbed halfway into the 20-minute procedure.
