Bubble-bath way to treat skin conditions
WHAT do Kate Middleton, Brad Pitt, Adele and LeAnn Rimes have in common?
Not only are they famous celebrities, but they also suffer from eczema, a condition that causes chronic inflammation of the skin, severe itchiness, recurring rash and dry, scaly areas on the skin.
Typically known as a childhood disease, eczema can persist into adulthood or even start later in life.
The cause of eczema, which affects men and women equally, is unknown. But factors such as dry skin, allergies and the use of harsh soaps and skin-care products can trigger the condition.
The treatment? Doctors usually advise sufferers to use mild soaps, moisturise often and avoid dusty places. Practising good hygiene is also essential in the management and treatment of eczema.
To alleviate the uncomfortable, and sometimes lifestyle-affecting symptoms, eczema sufferers might want to install an SEC shower converter in their bathrooms.
SEC International's range of revolutionary shower products and converters turns tap water into concentrated streams of ultra-tiny bubbles measuring one to 50 microns in diameter - so small they can penetrate skin pores to deliver a greater amount of oxygen to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised.
The bubbles also remove oil deposits, dirt and bacteria in pores and follicles, and soothe dry, itchy skin.
Generating ultrasonic waves that eliminate bacteria - without the use of chemicals - the bubbles also produce an abundance of negative ions that are said to boost the immune system, speed up skin recovery and reduce fatigue.
The system has been clinically proven to alleviate eczema symptoms by DermaPro Skin and Research Center in South Korea. Its effectiveness has been attested to by Korea Atopy Association.
Those without skin conditions can also enjoy major benefits - the bubbles exfoliate without the need for harsh scrubbing and leave the skin and scalp feeling refreshed.
Prices of the shower converters start from $399. Check out the systems at SEC International at 1 Pemimpin Drive, #07-09 (tel: 6659-7890).
Alternatively, visit them at Takashimaya Square B2 from tomorrow to Nov 10.
