[ Isabelle ] IDS Journey (Part I): Customized Skincare Products
28 June 2021


Since the start of 2020, I have been wearing less makeup and frankly, I haven’t been able to keep up with my skin care routine due to my hectic schedule of juggling home and work life. On top of that, wearing a face mask for long hours on a daily basis has caused my jaw area to break out. So I’m very grateful to Innovative Dermatological Solutions (IDS) for inviting me on this journey to better skin.


There are 3 entities under IDS – IDS Skincare, IDS Clinic and IDS Aesthetics. I decided to embark on my IDS experience with IDS at Novena Specialist Center.


IDS Clinic Novena




The waiting area at IDS Novena Specialist Center is spacious and all measures of distancing and temperature checking were taken seriously and comfortably. I did not have to wait long to see the doctor despite having a number of clients.





I was assigned to DR. Ian Tan who asked about my concerns and thoroughly accessed my skin. As you know, I have been struggling with acne since my late teens and it never really went away. Although my skin has improved tremendously over the years, I still get the occasional break out during the time of the month and now with the constant use of face mask. I informed DR. Ian Tan that although I still have acne, I have bigger concerns for anti-aging as I’m entering my late thirties. So I was prescribed a series of products catered to my skin’s needs.


Customised Skincare



I was advised to use these products daily in this order for myday and night skincare routine.

C1 Refreshing Cleanser
Formulated for thorough cleansing yet suitable for sensitive skin.

Refreshing Toner
Formulated for oily and blemish-prone skin, mild enough even for sensitive skin.

PF Pore Formula
Ultra-light serum that effectively cleans pores and reduces blemishes.

C+ C-Plus
Vitamin C serum for improved skin tone and texture.

A+ A-Plus
Advance Age-Preventative skin corrector.

RS Recovery Serum
An enriched serum to help reduce redness and irritation, stabilizing skin immunity and capillary integrity.

RC Rejuvenating Complex
The ultimate Age-Defying Revival Cream.

S2 Non-Tinted Sunscreen SPF 50+ PA+++
Ultra lightweight sunscreen in a hydrating and Antioxidant-Rich formula with added protection against infrared and blue light as well as pollution. Not to be used before sleep.



I’m excited to embark on my new journey to better skin with IDS and I can’t wait for my next visit. Stay tuned for progress updates and facial treatment coming up.
