Here’s an overview of the topics up for discussion with the panel at “The Essentials of Skin Care” Seminar Series
Topic 1: Managing your dry and sensitive skin (Prof Goh Chee Leok)
Dry skin is due to poor epidermal function and damage to the water-lipid barrier film resulting in increased water loss from the skin – called trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). Prof Goh Chee Leok will be sharing on how to choose the right skin care products to moisturise and repair your dry skin.
Topic 2: The truth about dandruff, scalp disorders and hair loss (Dr Lynn Teo)
Dandruff is a condition of the scalp that causes flakes of skin to appear. Dandruff is a common condition, which is characterised by itching. In some cases it can be embarrassing and not easy to treat. Find out from Dr Lynn Teo what types of hair care products a dandruff sufferer should use to keep the condition under control.
Topic 3: Sun Care- Sun Protection, is SPF enough? (Dr Patricia Yuen)
Recent evidences have shown that we are being exposed to more ultraviolet radiation due to changes in the ozone layer. Cumulative and unprotected ultraviolet exposure can accelerate skin ageing and increase the risk of skin cancers. Dr Patricia Yuen will discuss the latest news on sun protection and how to select the right SPF protection based on your lifestyle needs.
Topic 4: Need help managing your child’s eczema? (Dr Jenny Tang)
In Singapore, one in five children suffers from this chronic inflammatory skin condition characterised by an itchy red rash that favours the skin creases such as folds of elbows or behind the knees. For some, it’s a minor inconvenience, but for others it’s a major ordeal. Get in the know of treatments available for eczema and daily care guidelines via this informative session with Dr Jenny Tang.
