From correcting rounded backs and spinal misalignments to accentuating waistlines, osteopathic reshaping addresses a number of issues with the body without the use of surgery. With a clinic in Singapore and four in Malaysia, Yinee Beauty Wellness has been offering non-invasive osteopathic reshaping to clients since 2017. The clinic’s TCM and Freehand Technique specialists use nothing but their hands to manipulate your muscles and realign your bones.

Malaysian cosmetics brand Empro has recently launched a collection of medical and surgical face masks, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Available in a multitude of colours to match every outfit, each mask is composed of three layers, including two layers of spunbond fabric and an electrostatic filter, made with melt-blown fabric, for maximum protection. Besides boasting top-notch materials, they also come with mask extenders to ensure a comfortable fit for those who wear hijabs or other headdresses, as well as flat ear loops that won’t cause any discomfort even after prolonged use of the masks. While its surgical face masks boast a BFE of 99% or higher, its medical face masks have a BFE of 95% or higher, making sure to prevent the transmission of viral particles. Empro’s MDA-certified surgical and medical face masks also come with an ISO 13485:2016 certification, ensuring that they are of the highest quality available.
