My mum asked me the other day why I apply sunscreen even when we’re in the mall. Yup! I wear sunblock 4 to 5 times a day, and that includes before I hit the bed. Too much? Okay. Today’s post is going to be about sunblock, and why I apply it even before I hit the bed. LOL! First of all, sunblock is not about ‘skin whitening’ rather it’s more to protecting your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Now look at your skin. Does your skin has that so-called brown aging spots or uneven skin tones? Basically, your skin can tell more about your age than covering your lies.
Welcome, December! A few more weeks to go before Christmas, and New Year. Yay! Anyway, today is my appointment with my skin therapist, and we discussed about facial mist which definitely contribute to a dewy glow looking skin. There are many facial mists available in the market nowadays, and it can be a headache just to get one that’s perfect for the skin. In fact, facial mists can temporarily change the appearance the skin as well as make the skin feel refreshed. Continue Reading
Being a wife, and a mother is no longer about ‘only-me’ as there are a few people to be included as ‘us’. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean life as a wife, and mother is boring or tiring. No. I think it’s the most challenging job in the world as I need to understand the psychological needs of my loved ones. It doesn’t mean I’m now a servant or even a cooly. In fact, I’m proud if I could meet the psychological needs of my family. I work, study, cook, and prepare their needs. Apart from that, I’m happy to have a very helpful Mr. Husband who would help me taking care of the kids when I’m tired, or out to do my make-up jobs during the weekends.
How many times do you scrub your face? Twice a week? None? Why do we need to scrub or exfoliate our skin on regular basis? Basically, exfoliation on regular basis can help rejuvenate the skin as well as improve the results of your skin care routine regardless of your skin types – dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin. Our body produces new skin cells around the clock, and it can shed up to 50,000 dead skin cells every minute but sometimes the cells do not slough off and that’s why we have clogged pores which leads to breakouts.
I often meet make-up clients which I adore their skin so much until one day I met this bubbly client who was complaining about her ugly pigmentations that were starting to pop out. So, we chatted about lotions that were available in the drug stores while I was doing her make-up. I met her again recently and I was surprised to see her flawless skin. Her pigmentations were nowhere to be seen, and she looked younger than her age. I complimented her, and she blurted out the secret of having a great skin – NIVEA. She started applying body lotions using NIVEA and she even bought all NIVEA Whitening and Firming serum and lotion range. I asked her, “But, why NIVEA?”
If you watched or read Doraemon before, then you know that Shizuka loves having milk bath. There’s actually several scenes where Shizuka was enjoying taking her milk bath when suddenly Nobita bumped into the shower room using Doramon’s gadget. Milk is believed to make skin glows, and even Cleopatra used to bath in milk to soften her skin. In fact, lactic acids and enzymes that are present in milk actually promotes a smooth and supple skin.

I wished I can sip a cup of cappuccino at a nearby coffee shop right now but I guess I have to forget it as I’m way too lazy to go out at the moment. It has been raining cats and dogs lately, and I’m stuck in the office with my works piling up. It’s almost end of the year, and there are tons of accounts to be done before dateline. I admit that I don’t like to be ‘jailed’ in the office as I always believe that the air-cond would leave to dryness. Yes. The air-cond can give dryness to the face, hands, and feet. For some people, the dryness could result in flaking, cracking, or even eczema. Dry skin. Nobody loves looking at their flaky skin, anyway. I feel you. Let’s talk about a nice body serum that would leave your skin supple, smooth, and hydrated. The one that would never let you feel as if you’re applying cooking oil on your body – sticky, and oily.

I have a friend who asked me how to maintain a healthy, radiant, and fair skin because she tried everything and trust me, she even bought every single whitening body lotion from the drugstores and applied more than 5 layers a day (using different body lotions). So, I asked her if she got herself a body serum at home, and she replied ‘No’. She then asked me the what are differences between body serum, and body lotion as she thought that both were the same thing. In fact, we often assume that serum is a lotion because they look all the same. Continue Reading
You must have heard of Spotify, right? Similar to other available audio streaming services, Spotify have been in the news a lot recently, trying to compete with Apple Music through rebranding with a little tweak on the logo. It feels so great to be able to listen to your favourite songs without having to trouble yourself with updating your playlist to keep it updated with the latest songs. Continue Reading
There are a number of fitness trackers available in the market over the past year or so. I wasn’t aware the existence of this Jawbone UP Move until I got it from my Uncle who returend from the States. Unlike other fitness trackers, the Jawbone UP Move has a rather simple design which I thought I was given a toy wristwatch. It has been my favourite fitness tracker ever since that day. So, today’s review would be on Jawbone UP Move. Not a very technical with all those IT jargons. No. I would review based on the perspective of a newbie who doesn’t know anything about fitness tracker. Continue Reading
