Lovin' the DHC effect
by Sia Ling Xin

THE Japanese are renowned for their impeccable manners, good service and healthy food.

And they're a standout when it comes to skincare and cosmetics.

DHC, one of Japan's favourite skincare brands, is available in shops here, thanks to personal-care store Watsons.

With a legacy of over 30 years in Japan, DHC is committed to creating high-quality products based on the natural benefits of olive oil to help one achieve radiant skin.

Olive oil is considered to be an ancient beauty secret - one that's lauded for its anti-ageing effects, and healing and moisturising properties. The Egyptians, Romans, Phoenicians and the Greeks all prized olive oil for these benefits.

In the modern day, though good-quality olive oil can be used neat on the skin, DHC continually upgrades its products to stay true to those benefits.

It recently launched two new make-up collections - the DHC Platinum White Base Make-up range and DHC Coloured Make-up range - meant for everyday wear.

These products are formulated with SPF protection against the harmful rays of the sun and contain other moisturising agents, such as vitamin C and olive oil, ensuring that your skin both looks and feels healthy.

my paper has compiled a list of make-up, as well as lotions and potions from DHC which will help keep your skin healthy and radiant.
