Non-Surgical Beauty Enhancements
Let’s face it. Us girls will always try to find problems with our bodies one way or another. We’re either unhappy with how we look, or how we don’t have enough of what other girls have. Some women even go to the extent of going under the knife for elaborate cosmetic surgeries in efforts to achieve their desired look.
While I believe everyone should learn to appreciate and love their body for what it is, it won’t hurt to give your body a little bit of an upgrade and polishing up without the need for permanent invasive treatments.
Here are 8 simple ways of giving yourself a non-surgical makeover without ever facing to risk of permanent damage.
1. Eyelash Extensions
There are two main types of eyelash extensions: single or cluster. Single eyelash extensions are applied to each individual strand of your own eyelash for a very natural feel, while cluster eyelashes are applied in bunches and are more long-lasting but also more artificial.
2. Hair Removal
Forget painful waxing or shaving, Intense Pulsed Light or IPL is the new ‘in’ thing for hair removal. Ginza Calla specializes in IPL treatment with state of the art technology that provides a semi-permanent solution for hair removal at affordable prices.
What’s special about Ginza Calla is the fact that they do not simply provide IPL treatments, they also take care of your skin. All customers receive an application of a lotion called ‘Bihada-Junbi’ pre and post treatment that penetrates the skin and helps to moisturize the area, leaving it supple and cool. This is especially important for girls in Singapore who tend not to moisturize given the humidity we are constantly subjected to.
Ginza Calla is currently having a crazy promotion for TSL readers! The first 30 customers who quote “The Smart Local” stand to receive a free IPL session for the back of the hand or fingers + a bottle of Ginza Calla’s special Bihada Junbi lotion!
The Ginza Calla store opens from 11am to 9pm daily. Call 6238 8850 to make an appointment or for a FREE consultation, simply click here.
3. Non-Invasive Bust Treatments
Most girls are sensitive when it comes to their two best friends be it big or small. Let me just say bust enhancement doesn’t always mean increasing the size of your bust — it’s important to note that bust treatments are important to shape and perk up your assets. You would also be taught bust enhancing exercises which you could do in the comfort of your own home.
Some places provide tailored services using scrubs and natural ingredients like Angelica (dang gui) that helps to balance out the level of female hormones in the body for natural breast development and overall health.
4. Skin Care
Good skin = youth, radiance and confidence. Need I say more? You can stinge on all other areas but you should definitely splurge on your face. Youth once gone can never be regained naturally, but it can be retained.
If you’ve been slacking on your skin care regime like me, you can try Bioskin’s Skin Rebirth treatment which I personally went for that will help to kickstart the rejuvenation process. Alternatively, you could head to The DRx Clinic for professional skin advice. Such treatments helps to exfoliate one’s skin, stimulate collagen remodelling and skin tightening that will leave you looking younger and your skin feeling rejuvenated.
5. Eyebrow Waxing and Tinting
I cannot stress how important eyebrows are to one’s face. Without eyebrows we would just look plain creepy as evidenced in this Tumblr page dedicated to depicting celebrities without eyebrows (you NEED to see Anne Hathaway’s picture).
Same thing with our hair, not all of us are blessed with bushy caterpillar eyebrows that simply need to be pruned. Places like Benefit’s Brow Bar offer brow waxing and tinting services which provide a semi-permanent solution to your eyebrows.
6. Hair Extensions
If you’re a girl with fine, thin hair that grows at snail speed I totally understand how you feel. When my friends complain about how long their hair takes to dry or how much hair they have I just feel like rolling my eyes and telling them to have my hair for a change.
I’ve been told hair makes up 70% of one’s look and if you have MY hair then you probably look 70% of your potential at any one time. Still, fret not! Hair extensions can help to give the illusion of a crowning glory with detachable options or semi-permanent option. You could head to places like Millys at Far East Plaza for hair extensions.
7. Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are the new windows to your soul with many girls opting for enhancing contact lenses in efforts to make their eyes look more vibrant. Originally used to correct one’s eyesight, contact lenses have become more of a fashion accessory with non-prescription iris enlarging lenses and coloured lenses now available in the market.
8. Natural Skin Brightening

Infused water has been all the hype these days. Fruits like lemon have been said to brighten skin and help with acne. If you are not a fan of water, it is advisable to have fruit infused water over your canned and sugary drinks. This naturally sweetened water could be your best defense against weight gain, stress and much more!
Simply google “Fruit Infused Water Recipes” to find an extensive list of recipes for you to try.
