1. Let's glow crazy
As we all know that the current beauty trend now revolves around having a skin that glows, seemingly known as the Korean ‘Glass Skin’. It is immensely popular for women aiming to achieve a pore-less and luminous skin. Hydration is the key to achieving the ‘Glass Skin’ while leaving the skin youthful, clear, supple and smooth.
Prep your skin with NOVU’s newly developed Vitamin C Serum. It is medically formulated with a synergistic combination of 15% Ascorbic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid to effectively reduce the onset of dark spots and wrinkles and neutralize free radicals while leaving the skin radiant, supple and hydrated.
To further enhance your skin in achieving that glow, NOVU also provides deeply hydrating and brightening treatments such as Ultra-C. The latest skin therapy in town, Ultra-C combines the best of three proven technologies: Ultrasound, Cyro Infusion and Nano Oxygen Infusion Spray to defend your skin against urban pollution whilst boosting that glow from within.
Yay to a step closer to achieving the ‘Glass Skin’! Go ahead to GLOW LIKE CRAZY so they can’t bear to take their eyes off you!
2. say no to unsightly acne marks
Imagine you are on a date and he can’t stop looking at your flaws! Well, to a certain extent it does annoys us quite a bit even though they don’t mean to look at it deliberately but it does makes us feel insecure about ourselves. We all need an Acne Spot Eraser to erase them away.
Alternatively, Glazo Gold may be your solution for instant yet fuss-free results.
Glazo Gold is a carbon laser peel therapy that combines NOVU’s ND-Yag laser and medical activated carbon with superfruit Kakadu Plum Extract, Black Ginseng and Gold Dust. Targeting clogged pores, oily skin and pigmentation, this treatment provides safer, effective and consistent results in comparison to chemical peels.
Not only that, this treatment earns the title of the Best Smoothing Facial in the Harper’s Bazaar Spa Awards 2019.
3. Don't get lazy with your skincare regime
We all might find it a hassle to incorporate tons of steps to our daily skincare routine.
Applying your skincare products in the proper order ensures that your skin receives the maximized benefits of each product, resulting in a better-looking skin. Consider yourself a noob to skincare routines? Here’s something simple to start with:
Step 1: Washing your face with a gentle facial cleanser is a must.
Step 2: Toners are normally given a miss with the misconception of it being too harsh on the skin,, leading to irritability. It is a penetrating liquid that provides your skin with a bit of hydration while removing some dead cells on the surface of the skin.
Step 5: Acne creams help reliefs and reduces inflammation.
Step 6: Everyone needs a moisturizer, be it any skin types that serve as a protective layer and extra hydration. A day moisturizer serves as a protective layer to prevent skin dehydration from the external factors in the day while a night moisturizer helps to regenerate and replenish your skin’s hydration while you are asleep.
Step 7: Sunscreen protects the skin against harmful UV rays in the day. For night time, replace with a relaxing face mask before going to bed. Click here to read more on how you can achieve good skin.

A confident woman is a beautiful woman and we hope that the above mentioned can make you feel that being single is not a big deal after all. We wish you all the luck this singles day.
