11 Oct The Best Beauty Rituals: Let’s Face It! – Jamie Chua
It’s always cliché to start off a post about skincare with “skincare has always been a priority”. Cheesy but true, anyone that knows me knows that I’m a huge advocate of taking care of the most sensitive organ in the body.
Skin is truly healthy and luminous when everything comes into balance on the physical and emotional level. I pride in looking the best version of myself, and I owe it all to my religious skincare routines, diet, workouts and of course, La Source Spa! Here, I’ll be sharing with you my favourite facials and non-invasive treatments from the multi-concept space that keep me lit-from-within.
Radiating From The Inside & Out
Gone are the days when I look listless before a big night out. Whenever I have an event or cocktail party to attend, my go-to skin prep is definitely the La Radiance – a facial combined with firming massage techniques with the Dynamic Pulsed Light (DPL) that brightens and balances the skin’s pH level as it reduces the appearance of fine lines, Melasma and most importantly, hyperpigmentation.
What I love about this session is that it marries all the things I want most in a treatment: visible results, pampering experience and the usage of gentle yet potent INNI products. Made in Canadian laboratories, the in-house range is free of parabens, additives and preservatives, as well as colourants and artificial fragrances, so they are suitable even for sensitive skin. Despite it being only 75 minutes, I know my complexion can maintain its glow and vitality longer after with these natural products in play.

O2 For Your Skin
Whoever said being a jetsetter was easy? My complexion is constantly adapting to the weather due to my continent-crossing schedules, and there are times when it feels congested and in dire need of hydration. That’s when the La Signature comes to the rescue!
Touted as one of the most effective treatment, the all-in-one specialty facial infuses a pressurized stream of 98% pure oxygen and a concoction of INNI ingredients into the deepest layers of my skin. This process feels really relaxing and I instantaneously feel rejuvenated and radiant after.
The INNI blends that were recommended for me feature 3 concentrated serums –Intensive Repair Gel, Intensive Age Defense serum and the best-selling Hyaluronic B5 gel which eradicates wrinkles and acne scars effectively. Whatever the requirements, La Source caters to all skin concerns and will tailor a special mixture that is suited specifically for you.
La Signature, $298 for 75 minutes
If you’re a foodie like me, the chubby face-busting La Intense Sculptor’s V Face treatment will surely come in handy when you’re in need of a more defined jawline.
The 4D high-intensity session includes a lymphatic drainage massage which breaks down the localized fat deposits efficaciously as well as Varipulse and Vacuum that contour and tighten lax skin around the cheeks and jowls to give that youthful uplift. You’ll see a visibly streamlined visage in a few good sessions!

Elegance Is Key
We thrive on achieving a flawless complexion but skincare and facial treatments shouldn’t just stop at your jawline; it should extend all the way down to your neck. This delicate area – from the chin to the chest – is one of the first places on your body to reveal early signs of aging as there are lesser sebaceous glands. Hence, I chose La Source’s Elegant Neck to help my skin snap back without any sagginess!
Utilizing heat, this invigorating treatment not only improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the décolletage; it also stimulates blood circulation and loosens up muscle strains – a great remedy for stiff neck from waking up on the wrong side of the bed. A true blend of beauty and wellness indeed!

The Royal Indulgence
A luxurious treat fit for a queen, I always finish off my pampering rituals with a Midas touch. The treatment starts off with a 10-15 minutes massage, followed by slathering 24K gold mask until my face is glistening and gilded. Sounds easy? That’s because it is! This ultra-luxe treatment is suitable for all skin types and it helps to improve skin’s elasticity and tone with immediate results.
