The long and the short of the beauty industry for this week
Eau Pour Homme
Giorgio Armani has come up with a new bottle to match its unchanged spirit – like a tailor altering an item of clothing to add a fresh touch of modernity. Its citrus notes of bitter orange and tangerine enlivened with peppery coriander hits you first before you sense the subtle spices of nutmeg, cumin and neroli.
Its base notes comprise of a woody aroma of cedar and patchouli. Available at all Giorgio Armani Fragrance counters, Eau pour Homme retails at $129.00 for 100ml.
Sun protection for the skin can also be achieved by taking oral supplements. The Derma-Rx Skin Supplement ($94.16) is an oral supplement that offers the skin sun protection from within. It is made from marine-derived proteins, polysaccharides and antioxidants including extract from polypodium leucotomos, a herbal fern with sun protection and skin lightening properties.
It improves the structure, firmness and elasticity of the skin while helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It also minimises the tanning and sun-burn effects of UV exposure. Simply take two tablets daily as a dietary supplement, preferably before food.
The range also carries topical sunscreens and can found at The DRx Medispa located at 302 Orchard Road, 16th Floor, Tong Building.

The Liese Free Arrange lets you easily switch your hair style and won’t leave your hair limp or sticky. These products can be found at Watsons and selected super/hypermarkets.
