Whether on business or leisure, frequent travelers all face the same elements that take a toll on one's constitution. Considering the time one spends on a trip, from packing to final touchdown, with all the hazardous exposures in-between, the journey usually ends with a trip to wellness after one unpacks back home.
From hectic itineraries to the notoriously dry cabin air to the difference in water quality as well as sanitary disparity across the globe, a frequent traveler always feel worse for wear in between trips. Here are 4 outstanding wellness treatments based in Singapore (2 with branches in Hong Kong) I have personally reviewed and would recommend for folks constantly crossing time zones and geographical boundaries.
Hair health is often overlooked by frequent travelers but one can always head to Leonica K Trichology in Singapore for a consultation and restorative treatment.

This painless and straight-forward non-invasive procedure produces visible results immediately after one bounces off the dentist chair.
