Skincare Talk For Singapore General Hospital Nurses
Today’s a special training for a special group of ladies. Following in the footsteps of Florence Nightingale, this special group of ladies has devoted themselves selflessly to their chosen profession. They, like many, believe it is their calling.
I’m happy to be able to share with the nurses at Singapore General Hospital (SGH) today in this special training session. From the wide range of topics available, I chose to share about skin care in today’s skincare talk.
Whatever line you are in, hygiene is the most important. This is even more pertinent in the healthcare industry. As caregivers, the nurses are probably the first to come into contact with the patients while making their stay in the hospital a more pleasant one.
There is no denial that physical appearances are very important in the development of any personality. People form opinions based on what they see in a person physically and treat that person accordingly to the impression formed. So, a pleasant appearance on the face of any healthcare personnel does go a very long way to helping a patient recover faster. If you ask me, it’s part of the tender loving care treatment.
No one staying in the hospital wards wants to see a sulking face or an acne prone one. It sends a very strong message across to everyone. Any successful healthcare industry individual should first take care of herself and her image. By doing so, she projects an image that she can be trusted. If she cannot even present a proper image to others and looks sloppy or dishevelled, then would we even entrust our lives in her hands? Definitely no!
Proper skincare is not only about looking good. It is a vital part of projecting the right impression. Unhealthy skin tends to appear dull and tired, whereas healthy skin brims with vibrancy, confidence and is shine-free.
Choosing the right skincare is about considering three factors. These include your skin type, your budget and most importantly, knowing the types of ingredients that go into their skincare product.
Just like how nurses know the specific composition of any drug administered, so too must we know what we are applying on our face. To put it simply, read your product label. That was probably the biggest takeaway together with the other DIY skincare tips I shared.
Remember, at the end of the day, we want younger, better looking skin because of the effective ingredients inside. And healthy, glowing skin begins with a good skincare regime of cleansing, toning and moisturising.
