Even if you’ve got your skincare routine down pat, you’re bound to have some gunk in your pores (especially us urban dwellers). And there’s something you can’t do by yourself at home — a good extraction facial that clears your pores. It’s just what we need for a year-end glow-up.

Whether it is an exfoliating, brightening, or lifting treatment, we’ve rounded up the best facial treatments in Singapore — and it’s all right to splurge a little, it is the end of the year and your skin deserves some pampering too. 

DRx Aesthetics Essential Facial Re/juvenation Treatment

Featuring a deep cleanse and extraction alongside several potent infusions, this facial rejuvenation is specific to the urban skin; one that is constantly exposed to pollution, blue light from electronics, stress or lack of sleep. This treatment is a lot less frivolous than what you’d expect from a typical facial — no candles or aromatherapy in sight — but it’s definitely functional. DRx uses a market pioneering system to clear excess sebum, heal and nourish your complexion. Plus in doing so, it creates an overall anti-ageing effect.

Essential Facial Re/juvenation Treatment — SGD420 for 90 minutes.

Porcelain Skin Quintessential Facial Treatment

Improper extraction techniques can cause scarring, which is why we should always leave it to the experts like the therapists at Porcelain, who have honed their skills. A bespoke facial, the Quintessential Facial Treatment is an extraction-rich procedure designed for severely congested and acne-prone skin. Get brighter, more radiant and resilient skin that looks significantly healthier over time.

Geranium Multivitamin Lifting Treatment

Want to try gua sha but don’t know where to begin? Why not leave it to the experts? The Multivitamin Lifting Treatment at Geranium treats your skin to a thorough cleanse, exfoliation and extraction, before moving on to using traditional gua sha techniques to tone the skin, lift those facial muscles and stimulate lymphatic drainage. The result? A healthier complexion and firmer skin.

Want to look your best for the festive season? Epion Clinic‘s S.T.A.R. (Skin-Tightening, Aqua-dermabrasion & Rehydrate) facial is the one you need.

Sugar K Organic Peel

Pressed for time but still want to look good? Enter Sugar K, an organic peel bar started by Kew Organics. The concept behind the peel bar is simple and ingenious. It offers quick, 20-minute peel sessions that are gentle enough to be done every week; using glycolic acid naturally derived from sugar cane, the peels gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and excess sebum from the pores. This decongests clogged pores, prevents breakouts and evens out the skin tone for fresh, clear and healthy skin!
