3. Esthemedica’s smart skincare solutions combine science and nature for bright and youthful skin

Firm, fair and supple skin may seem like a faraway dream for women on an anti-ageing quest. But Esthemedica, an innovative skincare and aesthetics products distributor, is set to help everyone realise these beauty goals quickly, safely, and painlessly.

Say bye to surgical face lifting: Introducing Doublo-Gold, the latest high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) procedure from Korea. It delivers energy precisely, even to the deepest levels of the dermal structure for face lifting and body contouring twice as quickly as other HIFU treatments and with greater comfort. The non-invasive procedure can be customised for skin tightening and rejuvenation, jowl lifting, double chin reduction among other applications. It can also be used on most body areas that require shaping and toning.

Protect and lighten from the inside out: For a potent boost to one’s radiance-enhancing and sun protection regime, all-natural oral supplements EstheWhite and EstheShield by BeautéScience make the most comprehensive skin whitening solution. EstheWhite uses PhytoflORAL®, a patented ingredient derived from a tomato species rich in colourless carotenoids to lighten pigmented cells from within and suppress melanocyte. It also contains L-cysteine that stimulates glutathione (an antioxidant) production. EstheShield meanwhile boasts a natural fern extract (Polypodium Leucotomos) to protect against UV radiation while providing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to prevent free radical damage.

4. Asian design firm BLINK expands hospitality portfolio

One design firm has been quietly expanding its presence in Asia's luxury hospitality scene and is now emerging as a major force in the industry.
