Oil-Free Oktoberfest

Oil-Free Oktoberfest

A new month begets new changes, and for October, brace yourselves for a half-monthly long beer bonanza as Oktoberfest kicks in. Although chugging pint after pint is part and parcel of the quintessential Bavarian festival, one might find themselves working up quite a sweat in Singapore’s unforgiving humidity. Here are some sweat-wicking facial products to keep those pores in check.



Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser

Once again, Mother Nature comes to our aid in the direst of situation. Harnessing the purifying properties of Amazonian white clay and Diatomaceous earth particles, this Kiehl’s daily cleanser gently removes oil, dirt and toxins while reducing enlarged pores. Even after downing a few with the boys, this ensures an immaculate face, fit for plastering all over Instagram.



Sulwhasoo Relaxing UV Protector

Sun-shield yourself to avoid unwanted tans while you wallow in gallons of beer with Sulwhasoo’s Relaxing UV protector. The strong SPF50+/PA+++ protects your skin from overexposure to the sun, while soothing agent Portulaca oleracea helps relieve stress on the skin caused by strong rays and other irritants. With a texture that is not overbearingly sticky and an oriental woody fragrance to boot, this premium sunscreen does the job – very well for that matter.



Lab Series For Men Oil Control Daily Moisturiser

Before you start losing it in a fit of drunken rage, make sure you mask your sobriety with Lab Series’ Oil Control Daily Moisturiser. The oil-free moisturiser wards off shine in oily, blemish-prone skin for up to eight hours, and also evens out skin tone over time.  Now you’re all free to embarrass yourself, but at least your complexion is picture-perfect.



Anthony Astringent Toner Pads

Armed with this, one will be ready for an array of alcoholic assault. These astringent pads, or sweat wipes for the less verbose, by Anthony are amazingly versatile: pull them out of your back pocket and just swipe your glistening face to eliminate impurities, tighten pores and control shine. Let the witch hazel, aloe, and citrus and mint essential oils keep your skin matte and hydrated, while you go to town on those beers.



Acqua di Parma Collezione Barbiere Facial Cleansing Scrub

After a weekend’s worth of relentless drinking, your skin must be exhausted and screaming for salvation from grime-ridden pores. Thankfully, Acqua Di Parma’s Collezione Barbiere facial cleansing scrub got you – and your face – covered. Micro grains of pumice stone exfoliate gently to remove dead skin cells, revealing radiant skin, and black elderflower and rosemary prevent any sort of redness so you’re all set for another gallon-filled week.
