Hot and rainy, Singapore's weather can really make our lives tough sometimes. The humidity, for example, means that your makeup hardly last all day. There are indeed many other beauty woes we face due to the tropical climate, so check out this list of the latest beauty babies to get now to make our lives in humid Singapore a little more comfortable:

Sick of hearing others tell you how tired you always look? Turn to the new Sisley Instant Eclat primer to kick skin dullness in its butt. Its pearlescent particles act like glow givers for your skin, lending a pinkish radiance (no blushers needed) to your complexion. In short, apply it above your sunscreen or under your makeup and be ready to receive an influx of “Hey, you look good!” compliments from your friends and colleagues.
Our skin carries out all the regenerating and repair processes at night so naturally, we’ll want to give our skin a little detox at the end of the day. Reach for Skin Inc’s new My Daily Dose of Vitamins ABC+ which, as its name rightfully points out, contains vitamins A, B and C. Why? Well, these lovely ingredients are hailed for their skin renewing, blemish fighting and pore clarifying properties — all of which will send you on the way to healthier and clearer looking skin.

On the days when you know that you’ll start perspiring before leaving your house, it’ll be wise to avoid piling on your skincare. That’s because the more you apply, the more likely your skin will end up feeling sticky, dampening your mood on an especially warm day. The solution: KANEBO’s Graceful Flow Lotion that leaves a velvety finish once it’s absorbed. The accompanying floral scent is also a plus for your senses when you want to kick start your day on an energised mode.
We know how micellar cleansing waters are all the rage now but if you find that they can be a tad too drying for the skin, there are always the good ol’ cleansing oils to fall back on. Besides doing a great job at removing makeup, this offering from under-the-radar Japanese beauty brand THREE also has frankincense oil to correct skin damage. At the same time, its relaxing aroma will help to turn your nighttime skincare routine extra therapeutic.
Lack of sleep, hectic lifestyle and a non-existant love life. These may be some of the reasons why your skin has been misbehaving recently (lack of radiance, acne and fine lines are all telltale signs). But don’t worry, there’s the new Clarins Multi-Active Day Emulsion to count on. For the first time ever, Clarins has introduced a cell targeting system that delivers encapsulated teasel plant extract (hailed for its antioxidant properties) to our skin cells, building more collagen in this process. With more collagen and healthier cells, skin will then feel smoother and more revitalised than before.
Throughout the day, our eyes blink a lot so it’s no wonder the skin around them are often overworked, causing unwelcomed fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone to appear. Thankfully, the new Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate is here to rescue our peepers. Hailing the same ChronoluxCB technology that can be found in the famous Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, this concentrate adopts a three-pronged approach — repair, fortify and hydrate — to show puffiness, dehydration and dullness the door.
