The Full Monty On Going Barefaced

When we first asked Dr. Terence Tan his thoughts on talking about going barefaced, he laughed and said the topic is a little unfair.

“After all, all those celebrities and movie stars behind the barefaced movement might have just a little bit of makeup on although they claim otherwise,” he quipped. What’s more, whether a person dares to go out without makeup is not only about one’s physical appearance, “it has a lot to do with self-confidence too, and confidence is not something a medical aesthetics doctor can ‘give’ a person,” he says.

How confident are you?

With his words in mind, we took to the streets to ask ladies how they would feel without makeup.

When it comes to going bare faced in public, some of the concerns that women have are:

  • Skin blemishes such as acne scars;
  • Dark eye circles and eye bags; and
  • Looking tired.

Whether or a not a person will step out with confidence despite the makeup all comes down to their skin condition.“The best way to show off our skin is to make sure that it’s not damaged in the first place,” says Dr. Terence Tan. If you want to help your skin stay in tiptop condition, he suggests the following:

  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure to prevent photodamage;
  • Adopt a balanced diet high in protein to encourage collagen growth;
  • Use skincare that contains antioxidants as they help to reverse sun damage and reduce pigmentations; and
  • Use moisturisers as hydration is essential for healthy skin.

When it comes to treatments, Dr. Terence Tan highlights some therapies that will help correct problems that spur people to hide behind their makeup:

  • Improve skin texture with skin resurfacing lasers, specifically the Fraxel Dual laser.
  • Treat pigmentation problems with light-based therapy (e.g. intense pulsed light) and laser treatments like the Q-Switched laser.

If the hollowness under the eyes and sagging jowls are making you look old and tired, consider Ultherapy®, threadlift, and dermal fillers to firm, lift and rejuvenate your face.

Going barefaced is a big step towards being comfortable in your own skin. With the myriad of treatments available, that step need not be a difficult one.
