Top 5 Tips to Get Your Skin and Body Ready for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year (CNY) is right around the corner and even with visitation restrictions in place — there’s no reason why you shouldn’t look your best! If you’ve been feeling like your complexion isn’t as smooth as it should be or your weight has been going up, there’s no better time to “spring clean” your daily habits into a healthier you.

Here are our top 5 tips on getting your skin picture-perfect and body feeling fabulous this CNY.

1. Calm Acne-prone Skin

For those of us with acne-prone skin, the worst feeling is waking up on a big day with inflamed zits on our face. To make matters worse, acne can make our complexion look rougher than it really is. 

Besides cleaning your face regularly with a gentle cleanser, try treating acne internally with a concoction of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbs designed to help regulate your skin’s oil production and address the root cause of acne.

Heng Foh Tong’s acne management package contains a mixture of licorice root, honeysuckle flowers and a variety of other herbs to help treat acne for clear skin this CNY. It is brewed and consumed as a herbaceous soup, perfect for accompanying your meals! 

2. Prep Your Body to Lose Fat During CNY 

For many of us, CNY is a festive period of indulgence. While many of us are acutely aware of the weight we’ll gain after snacking on our favourite CNY snacks like bak kwa, kueh lapis and pineapple tarts — how we choose to deal with this weight differs from person to person.

Some of us choose to go on crash diets after CNY (not something we recommend, but we’ll cover this later), others choose to avoid snacks entirely. We suggest enjoying your favourite snacks in moderation but help speed up the process with some fat burning tea!

Heng Foh Tong’s fat-burning tea package contains a mix of lotus leaf and red yeast rice to help slow the body’s absorption of fats and carbohydrates to reduce weight gain while simultaneously improving digestion.

3. Detoxify Your Body

Making sure your body’s digestive systems (intestines and liver) are at their best during this Chinese New Year! Other than consuming herbal tea or healthy food, you can have a sweet treat to revitalise your body! 

Try the Herbal Pure Peach Gum Dessert package for a treat! This will help satisfy your cravings while detoxifying your body and hydrating your skin at the same time.

4. Hydrate Your Skin

They say glowing skin comes from within, and that’s the truth!

5. Boost Your Immune and Respiratory System

The pandemic has made everyone pay much more attention to their health, particularly their immune and respiratory system. Whether you’re planning to go visiting or not this CNY, strengthening this area of your body is a good way to improve your resistance to diseases.
