SINGAPORE – The Singapore Grand Prix is happening this weekend – if you’re heading to the race tracks, you might be walking a lot, jamming to concerts in humid (and possibly hazy) weather, and heading to after-race activities. How to keep yourself looking fresh-faced and flawless while you take yourself from pre-race to after-race activities?
Here are the beauty essentials we curated that will pamper your tired feet, keep your skin glowing and hydrated at the tracks, and restore and refresh your complexion after a night of celebratory partying.
Get through the F1 Singapore races, concerts and after-parties looking like a winner.
Fight the grease with dry shampoo
After a day out, your hair could be feeling greasy but, of course, there’s no time to wash your hair as you need to head to the after-party, right?
That’s where you need a dry shampoo for that quick hair refresh in between washes, with oil-absorbing powers to leave your scalp matte and clean (no water required).
The Wild Dry Shampoo from Batiste ($12.90) smells pretty good and cleans your hair well. It’s super easy to use – spray Batiste into the roots, keeping the nozzle 30cm from hair. Massage through with fingertips, brush hair and style as usual.
Keep your make-up in place
Let’s face it – Singapore’s weather is humid and hot. A good primer or setting product is essential to help you keep your make-up from sliding and slipping off. This is especially important when you want to still look good as you head to the after-party when the race has ended.
The Urban Decay All Nighter Pollution Protection Makeup Setting Spray ($48) gives smoother-looking skin and vibrant make-up that lasts all day (or night) without melting, cracking, fading, or settling into fine lines.
Keep your skin hydrated with a face mist
What happens when you need to hydrate your skin but you pretty much have to stay glued to the race so you won’t miss a thing?
Whip out your handy face mist from your purse, a few spritzes and voila – you are good to go.
Formulated for oily and combination skin, The Body Shop Mint Mattifying Face Mist ($12) helps to control shine. When it gets too humid and your pores are getting out of control, this mist will leave you looking mattified and shine-free, and the burst of mint instantly cools and refreshes your skin. It is also make-up friendly so you can spray it on your face without any worry.
Revive tired skin with a purifying mask
After a long night out at the race track, you want to revive those tired peepers and skin and give them the deep cleanse without drying out.
Keep your complexion looking fresh and perky when you wake up the next morning with an intense, powerful mask.
The deep-cleansing and purifying Umbrian Clay Mask from Fresh ($88) is a mineral-rich clay mask for all skin types that deeply cleanses and minimises pores and shine—without over-drying or clogging pores.
Relieve aching feet with a foot lotion
Your feet might be aching after walking around and partying all night in heels but fret not, foot rescue is on stand-by mode.
How about rubbing some cooling peppermint lotion to give that instant relief to those aching feet? Peppermint oil helps to ease tension and pain in the feet and it also aids in blood circulation.
The Body Shop Peppermint Intensive Cooling Foot Rescue ($25) is infused with English peppermint essential oil and gives your feet that cooling, relieving sensation when you lather it on.
