Can Diet and DIY Food Face Masks Help Improve Your Skin Complexion? An Aesthetic Doctor Weighs In

We all have that one friend or family member who insists that eating oily food can cause acne or that fruits can help you get clearer skin. Are these just myths or have they been medically proven?

This was on the mind of Stacey, a DxD reader. She recently watched a video of a dermatologist making a claim that food in general, (except dairy products) does not cause acne, e.g. eating pizza wouldn’t cause acne but smearing it all over your face would. 

She wanted to find out if there's any correlation between her diet and complexion. She was also curious about the legitimacy of DIY face masks made from fruits. 

Dr Shane Abucewicz Tan shared his professional opinion with Stacey. Here's what he had to say.

S'porean Therapist Shares Useful Tips On How To Manage Lymphoedema; This Cancer-Related Disease Affects 250 Million Patients Worldwide

Lymphoedema is a chronic disease characterised by massive swelling of limbs or tissues. This disease affects about 250 million patients worldwide.

It happens when there is an excessive collection of fluid in the leg, trunk or body part, due to disruption of the normal lymph flow; mainly caused by the removal of the lymph nodes during surgery and/or radiotherapy for cancer treatment.

If you've undergone surgical removal of lymph nodes or radiotherapy, you may be at risk of developing lymphoedema. When left untreated, this disorder can lead to many other complications.

Veronica Yap, a certified lymphoedema with more than 20 years of experience, hosted an AMA session on DxD recentlyShe answered plenty of reader questions related to lymphoedema. Here's what she shared.

How Do You Know If Gender Dysphoria Is Not Just A 'Phase'? A Psychiatrist Gives You The Low-Down

The generation of today is increasingly challenging conventional gender stereotypes. A massive poll done in the USA revealed that 50% of millennials believe that gender is actually a spectrum.

In Singapore, gender fluidity is not often talked about. Gender dysphoria refers to the distress a person experiences as a result of the sex and gender they were assigned at birth. This leads to them feeling very disconnected between their sense of self and body. Could gender dysphoria simply be a phase?

Psychiatrist, Dr Ng Beng Yeong, delved further into this topic on DxD. Here's what he had to share.

S'porean Gastroenterologists Share Tips On How To Identify And Deal With Food Poisoning

Recently, an unbelievable amount of food poisoning cases have appeared throughout Singapore. An outbreak that lasted the whole of November led to over 400 people being affected. Many of them were hospitalised for severe symptoms. 

What's even more terrifying is that while the lapse in food hygiene could be one cause, the scale and proximity of the incidences are pointing to something more; such as a bug or contaminated source.

Many Singaporeans are now fearful that they might end up spending their end-of-year holidays in the hospital. Thus, it's important to take precautions and be extra careful about where you celebrate and what you eat to stay safe!

Here are some tips from experienced gastroenterologists from the DxD community that may be able to help you identify and deal with possible digestion-related ailments.

I Am A Lymphoedema Therapist In Singapore, AMA!

Meet Veronica Yap, a medical healthcare specialist with more than 20 years of experience. She’s a certified therapist who specialises in helping patients with Lymphatic Disorders through therapy.

We all have a lymphatic system in our bodies. It’s a network of tissues and organs that helps you rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials. If you have a lymphatic disorder (Lymphoedema), this system becomes blocked, and fluid will start to build up in your tissue spaces between the muscles and skin. The result of this is chronic swelling. 

Lymphatic diseases have considerable public health significance, yet not many professionals are specialised in their management. Veronica is passionate about raising awareness for this condition because early detection and management yields the best outcomes.

Join her live AMA on Wednesday, 19 December, at 5:00 PM as she answers all your questions you have on Lymphatic Disorders.
