Advice for Teenagers (Beauty Edition)

In the past, I’ve made many mistakes that teenagers will usually make as they step into the world of makeup. Now that I am older and more knowledgeable in this aspect, here are 3 valuable pieces of advice I have for the younger ones.   #1: Don’t pop your pimples The most satisfying but worst thing to do is to pop your pimples. Everyone knows that its not good to pop your pimples at home as it will cause unsightly scars. Trust me, I’ve been there. But don’t worry, the pimple will subside in a few days. You can use the Clear Love Kit to help fight off the acne bacteria on your skin. You can even give facials a go to deep clean your skin! Although the pimple might still be visible for a few days, it sure can’t compare to living with those scars for the rest of your life, can it?   #2: Confidence comes from within It is important to understand that confidence comes from within, regardless of Continue Reading

Common misconceptions about skincare

Skincare has been popular for such a long time; it is inevitable that there will be misinformation and misconceptions floating around. Sometimes, you might also make some assumptions about skincare based on your knowledge. Read on to debunk some common misconceptions regarding skincare! We don’t need to use an exfoliator. Not true. Exfoliators are important because they help to remove the dead skin on our face. It then allows for skincare products to be better absorbed into our skin. Apart from stimulating blood circulation and lymphatic circulation for better skin health, some scrubs also contain additional beneficial ingredients. Take for example, the Gold Flakes Illuminating Scrub. It contains vitamins A, C and E to help nourish your skin while removing the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.   Consuming vitamin C is the same as applying vitamin C. The short answer is no. Take a listen to Dr Chua Han Boon as he answers this question eloquently. Essentially, the amount of vitamin C we ingest does not all go Continue Reading

How to Enjoy the New Normal

The pandemic that has been stretched out for more than a year has led to the reduction in socializing for many. To many, this is a source of pain. But not for me. I think there are still many enjoyable things to do even in this situation. You just have to adapt to different forms of entertainment. Here is a list of things that you can still do despite the pandemic.   Spending time with friends Even though there are many restrictions imposed, it is still possible to have fun with your friends. If you choose to stay home, you can always invite your friends over for a session of karaoke. Or else, solving an escape room online would be fun too! If you want to get out of your house for a breather, you can have a simple picnic by the beach or go for a swim at the pool. But don’t forget your sunscreen! Just as wearing a mask is important to protect yourself from the virus, wearing sunscreen Continue Reading

Are You Applying Your Skincare Wrongly?

Getting good products for your skin is no doubt important. But how many people complement their good skincare products with the correct application techniques? This might result in your products appearing to be less effective. Don’t negate your effort by using improper application techniques! Read on to find out if you are committing these skincare mistakes!   Tugging the Undereyes When you are applying your anti-ageing eye cream, are you dragging your fingers across your delicate skin? The skin around your eye is very thin and hence you shouldn’t apply too much pressure on it as it might cause wrinkles. Instead, you can use your finger to lightly dab a thin layer of cream on your undereyes. A good eye product would be easily absorbed into your skin without needing much pressure. If you are looking for a good and non-sticky eye serum, the Liquid Gold Eye Illuminating Serum is a good choice. Infused with real gold particles, it helps to fight obvious signs of ageing under your eyes!   Wrong Continue Reading

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Fathers’ Day is coming! What are you thankful to your father for? For me, I am thankful for the advice he has given me throughout the years, even though I usually end up not heeding his advice and regretting later. I am also grateful to him for providing me with a comfortable life. As a token of gratitude, I am planning to get my dad a present. Here are some options that I am considering getting this fathers’ day and hopefully it will give you some inspiration on what to get for your father too! 1) A Computer Monitor With work-from-home here to stay, it would be a worthy investment to get a monitor. Working from the tiny screen can be difficult for my father since his eyes are not as sharp anymore. He has also mentioned that the small screen results in his eyes being more tired as well. With the monitor, he can view his documents with ease and can even have dual screens! I promise this is Continue Reading
