I am a firm believer that every woman (and man) deserves to be beautiful, and feel beautiful. Beauty is a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form that are pleasing the aesthetic senses, especially the sight. It could vary from one person to another, hence why the term ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. To me, external beauty comes from deep within us. With proper care in all aspects, good diet and lifestyle combined with good skincare habits will absolutely bring out the radiance in you.
CARA Skin Care Salon was officially launched on 1 October 2016, exactly a year ago. Located in Sunway Nexis, Kota Damansara, CARA is the first official Malaysian flagship store for Skeyndor, a highly-accredited skincare brand from Spain. Meaning ‘golden skin’ in Spanish, Skeyndor works on your skin from deep within the layers, eradicating the saying ‘beauty is only skin deep’ – quite literally.
“Beauty is not without effort, and it’s most definitely not just skin deep,” – Nicole Yee, Beauty trainer at CARA
The passionate journey of Skeyndor started in the 60’s, with Publio Puente, Doctor in Chemical Science and Juan Morcillo, Doctor in Industrial Engineering – with its head office in Terrassa, Barcelona. Since its establishment, the company has been offering the best aesthetics products and treatments through pioneering scientific research, effective ingredients and therapeutic doses. Today, Skeyndor is the No.1 professional skincare brand in Spain and is rated as top fifteen cosmetics brands in Europe. Currently, Skeyndor distributes to over 50 countries across the 5 continents – including here in Malaysia. The constant pursuit of excellence has been their overriding philosophy.
Everyone needs basic skin care maintenance, hence why Skeyndor Essential line is the care kit that is recommended for everyone. The basic care kit includes cleansing, hydration and toning – and quick to treat as soon as skin conditions appear. For people with sensitive skin, Skyendor Aquatherm is highly recommended to help standardise and rebalance the epidermal metabolism that protects you against harmful effects of the environment and prevents redness, oedemas or scaling. Aquatherm simultaneously treats the common signs of premature ageing too.
Various treatments utilising Skeyndor’s wide range of products are offered at CARA, but Annie Ting, the Marketing Executive claims the top two specialised treatments that are high in demand are the Power Aesthetics and Proionic treatments. The Power Aesthetics care is effective in bringing aesthetic ingredients such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and retinol into the skin cells without the use of needles or any other micro equipment; while carrying out deep and lasting bright skin cell care. The Proionic treatment helps speed up the recovery of positive and negative ions, which in turn activates cell self-repair ability; decreased appearance of sagging, double chin, wrinkles, eye bags, dark circles, increased collagen formation, slimming, breast firming and more. This treatment is suitable for any part of the body whilst restoring a healthier skin.
At CARA, they believe skin health is very important particularly because it is the largest organ in our body. It serves as a protective barrier for your inner organs against the external pollutants. CARA’s beauty trainer, Nicole Yee says a perfectly healthy skin is able to fight signs of ageing, heals much faster than usual and staves off potential disease better than unhealthy skin.
We all know how warm and humid the weather in Malaysia can be. More often than not, our skin becomes the victim. “A suitable skincare regime is important especially when Malaysian skin can be a combination of oily and dehydrated. I would normally advise the client to always select the right texture of product that is only best suited for their skin,” said Annie. Nicole advises readers that it’s very crucial to moisturise your skin. “The warm weather and high humidity level will you sweat and leave your skin dry. Not to mention a lot of us use air conditioners indoor now. That causes dry skin too,” she added.
She recommends the Power Hyaluronic Booster, which captures and retains moisture in the skin and has a 100% ultra-moisturising effect, thanks to the polarised water effectively increasing the absorption of water via cell walls. For moisturiser, emulsion texture is more suitable for Malaysian skin than cream. The Intensive Moisturising Emulsion improves the appearance of wrinkles caused by dehydration. Lastly, she reminds us to always complete our daily skin care regime with sun protection emulsion, which blocks out the harmful substances from sunlight. Skeyndor’s Sun Expertise has a specialised formula that establishes the three internal and external protective barriers to provide you giving you 360-degree protection.
