    Learn how to get beautiful skin at seminar

    THINK that people with darker skin don't need sunscreen?

    This is one of many common skincare myths, according to Mount Elizabeth Hospital dermatologist Eileen Tan.

    Dr Tan, who is a member of the Royal College of Physicians (UK) and American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, stressed that skin of all colours needs protection.

    She told My Paper that while women in their 20s have "fairly good skin", many do not take care of their skin at that age.

    "Those who are not so careful may begin to see signs of ageing such as fine expression lines, especially around their eyes and mouth.

    "In their 40s and 50s, everything will become even more obvious with furrows and burrows appearing."

    Dr Tan will be speaking about the ageing process and ways to treat skin pigmentation, wrinkles and other conditions at My Paper's Metropolitan Workshop on Aug 13.

    Also speaking at the event is beauty specialist Jane Lim, who will be sharing tips on how to brighten skin as well as a 10-minute make-up routine.

    The Kose manager will also touch on double cleansing and sun protection.

    The seminar, which costs $35 per person, will be held from 2pm to 5pm at venue sponsor Carlton City Hotel's level 3 Plate restaurant, inclusive of high tea.

    Participants will receive a goodie bag each, worth over $75. Registration for the event closes at 11.59pm on Monday.
