Nourish Your Skin With Antioxidant-Rich Foods

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Did you know that eating a diet rich in antioxidants is not only good for your health, it's actually great for your skin too. But what are antioxidants? By definition, antioxidants such as vitamins A and C are substances that can help prevent the effects of free radical damage in the body. In other words, antioxidants can neutralize the process of oxidation and cellular damage which contributes to aging and disease. The body does not produce antioxidants, but it requires a variety of antioxidants to help neutralize free radicals. Thus we need to consume foods that contain these ingredients.

What is the impact to our body if it lacks antioxidants? The simplest example is taking an apple, eating only half, leave it at room temperature and observe the changes. Apple transformed into brown caused by the process of oxidation byproduct of free radicals. This also occurs in the body by free radicals which are produced by the body through free radical reactions biochemical. However, too much will bring harm to the body. Other factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, acids, sunlight, exposure to radiation and environmental pollution will produce more free radicals in the body.

Here's the antioxidant skin foods that nourishes your skin from inside and makes sure that your skin remains younger and healthier.

The best thing about the following list is that they're also delicious!

1. Kurma (Dates)

Kurma are rich in nutrients including minerals and vitamins. There are many health benefits of eating dates, as they are free from cholesterol and are very low in fat. It provides a good source of energy for your body. Among one of the vitamins that are in kurma is Vitamin C. Vitamin C functions as an antioxidant known as tannin. In fact, the kurma are also rich in vitamin A, which is antioxidants to keep skin healthy and beautiful. 

2. Raisin

Raisins are actually green or black grapes that are dried. Indeed, grapes are also rich in antioxidants high. Phenolic Phytonutrients contained raisins functioning in killing germs, antibiotics and antioxidants in skin care. 

3. Blueberries

Blueberries contain a substance called antosinin anti-oxidant that can stop the spread of cancer cells. Furthermore, antosinin is also effective in nourishing the skin to slow down the aging system.

4. Green Tea

Green tea beverage known as antioxidants, is the best in Japanese society. Green tea contains polyphenols and catechins, anti-oxidant compounds that effectively eliminate the free radicals in the body. It functions by providing a healthier skin.

5. Raspberry

Just like blue berries. It is also rich in anti-oxidants that can remove high with free radicals and slow the aging process of the skin. It can also improve damaged skin cells and give skin moisture so that the skin stays soft and supple.

Proper Way to Apply Perfume

Monday, September 22, 2014

Almost all women and men are fond of wearing perfume. Wearing perfume can somewhat increase the look and confidence because you know that you smell wonderful. But, how to make perfume scent lasts longer? Knowing the right way to apply perfume helps ensure the best possible result.

There are several ways you can maintain to make perfume scent lasts longer:

1. Apply Perfume Right After Shower 
Apply perfume right after shower is the best way to maintain its scent. You don't want to stain your clothes and jewelry, do you? Remember that some perfumes can stain clothes and jewelry easily. If you use perfume directly on the body, it will be activated by the body's natural heat. Therefore, the fragrant smell will remain much longer. So, spritz some on your skin after drying off and before putting on your clothes. 

2. Spray, Rather Than Rubbing 
It is not recommended to rub perfume because the act of brushing can destroy the scent molecules, resulting in a distinct odor. Instead, just spray perfume, about 15-25 cm from the skin. Lightly-sprayed smell will spread evenly on the body. 

3. Where To Spray? 
Ever wonder why people put perfume on their wrists and neck? These are your body's "pulse points" (your inner arms and the backs of your knees and ears are the others). Pulse points emit the most heat, allowing the perfume to diffuse out from the body. However, less is more. You don't want to over spray, so pick one or two key places and spritz each one once or twice. 

4. Moisten The Skin Before Applying
Scientific studies show perfume smells more lasting on oily skin, as compared to dry skin. Many people look at an oily skin as a problem, but it has the advantage of which it can retain the smell of perfume longer. Therefore, if you have dry skin, moisten first or you can apply unscented lotion before spraying. Perfume lasts longer when your skin is hydrated. 

5. Save Fragrance In The Right Place 
Protect your perfume from moisture, heat and light. Preferably a place that is a cool and dry, away from direct sunlight. Moreover, buy perfume spray bottle is encouraged as it will help to prevent evaporation and aroma chemical reaction to air.

Tutorial: Simple Smokey Eyes for Monolids

Monday, September 15, 2014

If you have monolids, you need to be careful with the eye makeup and sometime even experienced makeup artists find it baffling. Here, I will share with you some of the makeup tips and tricks for monolids. Before applying makeup, remember to cleanse and moisturize your face with your favourite skin-care products. Always allow a few minutes for it to set before applying your makeup.

I'm going to start with the following:

What you need:
Eyeshadow base/eye primer
Jumbo eyeshadow pencil
Brown eyeshadow
Liquid eyeliner in black
Pencil eyeliner in black

Let's get started (please refer to my 'Map Of The Eye' on your right):

Step by step

Step 1
Prime your entire lid and crease for long lasting smudge-free wear and this will keep your eyeshadow from creasing.

Step 2
Apply Jumbo pencil to line your lid. It depends on how thick you want it to be.

Step 3
Use blending brush to smudge/soften the harsh lines.

Step 4

Apply a nice brown shadow (preferably matte for monolids; AVOID shimmery shadow as it will make the eyes look swollen or puffy) to your crease area or below your brow bone. This brown color can help to enhance the monolid eye (it's like faking the crease!). In other word, to create eye contour and crease effect.

Step 5

Line upper lid and lower lash line with liquid eyeliner.

Step 6

Apply pencil liner on waterline.

Step 7

Apply brown shadow (matte) under eye to make the eyes appear bigger.

Oh ya, don't forget to apply highlighter to your brow bone. For those with monolids, DO NOT use a shimmery highlighter as it will make the eyes look swollen, instead use a non shimmery highlighter.

Lastly, you may apply your false lashes.

Good luck.

Face Shapes and Eyebrows

Friday, September 5, 2014

Eyebrows are like a picture frame to decorate your eyes. The right frame certainly makes your eyebrows and entire face look more interesting. Despite the constantly changing shapes due to current fashion and trends, the basic formation remains the same. Eyebrow shape must always be longer than the eye, so that your face will look balanced. The right eyebrows can make your face look sexier, younger and more beautiful. If your brows aren't in shape, you might end up looking dull or worried. As a makeup artist myself for many years, I've always told my clients that eyebrows are the most important facial feature. And, always make sure that they get the right eyebrows for their face shapes. When you look good, you will always feel good!

How to determine your face shape?
Very simple. Start by pulling your hair back from your face, and with no makeup on, look closely in the mirror.

Generally there are 6 types of faces, such as oval, long, heart, round, square and diamond.

1. Oval Face Shape
This is an ideal face shape and the most favourable face shape as it is compatible with all forms of eyebrows and even hairstyles. This face shape gracefully tapers toward chin. Has wider forehead and prominent cheekbones.

2. Round Face Shape
Round face shape has almost the same width and length while the cheekbones are the widest part of the face.

To make round face appear to be longer is to create a high arch eyebrows shape. Avoid rounded brow as it makes the face more round.

3. Long Face Shape
A long face shape has a long proportion to the width. This face shape gracefully taper toward chin. Some have prominent chin. 

As your face already long, you don't want your face look more longer than that. A flat eyebrow shape can shortens a long face shape.

4. Square Face Shape
Forehead, cheekbones and jawline for square face shape has almost the same width. Square and bony jawline is prominent feature.

Start with the curved eyebrows shape then add more angle to create balance. The stronger and more bony the jawline is the more angled brow shape should be created.

5. Heart Face Shape
This face shape strongly taper toward chin. Chin tend to be pointy and forehead maybe a prominent feature.

Forehead maybe the widest of the face. Depend on how prominent of the forehead, start with a low arch, round curved brows then add more volume to it as it adds more length to the forehead as well as balancing the pointy chin.

6. Diamond Face Shape
Face highly angular and somewhat bony. Widest at temples and not as common compare to others.

A curved eyebrows shape will soften the angled face and reduce the widest part of the face temples.

Product Review: OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go

My cuticles before applying OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go
I suffer from super-dry and ragged cuticles and fingertips. With all these, it ruins the entire look of my fingers and nails. For me, healthy and manicured cuticles are not just a matter of fashion. Contrary to what some people may think, cuticles are not piles of dead skin that gathers at the base of the nail. They are living parts of the skin that serve an important purpose. Cuticles are attached to the nails and help keep them healthy by protecting them from bacterial and fungal infections. When the cuticle becomes dry, it can't attach to the nail to do its job. This leaves the nail vulnerable to damage and infection.

OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil To Go

However, you can care for your cuticles to keep them looking nice. When your nails and cuticles become dry and ragged, this is the time when you need a cuticle oil to moisturize them. This little tube is a lifesaver - OPI Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go. I love this product and my cuticles need it so much! Whenever my cuticles start to get dry, I will apply it. Ever since I started using this oil, I rarely have dry cuticles. My cuticles are moisturised and my nails look more healthier. Even though it's greasy but it sinks in almost immediately.

For those who suffer from dry cuticles, remember to keep one in your handbag or purse as it won't go everywhere if it's in your handbag or purse. It really is convenient for "on the go" just as it claims!

Different Types of Perfume

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

We often see a variety of perfumes in the market and they tend to be sold at different price points. And, sometimes the labeling of the perfumes can be very confusing. It's important to understand the different types of perfumes and the meaning of the terms, which is why you may see Pure Perfume or Parfum, Eau de Parfum (EDP), Eau de Toilette (EDT), Eau de Cologne, and Eau Fraiche label on the perfumes as it allows you to select the type of perfumes you want to buy in the future. The most common way to describe a perfume is perhaps considering its concentration level, or more specifically, to see how much high grade alcohol and/or water has been added to the perfume oils.

Here's the terminology and general concentration level of each scent strength:

Perfume (Pure Perfume) or Parfum 
This is the most highly concentrated or purest type of fragrance that lasts all day with least application. As such, it is also the most expensive. A Parfum will contain 20% percent or more (typically up to 30 percent) of the essential fragrance.

Eau de Parfum (EDP) 
This is the second most concentrated type of fragrance that lasts up to 4-5 hours. Only slightly less potent (and expensive) than Parfum. It contains 15-12% perfume essence concentration. There is no need to spray a lot of it as it is quite strong as mentioned and lasts for a long time.

Eau de Toilette (EDT)
This is more concentrated and most popular type. It lasts up to 2-3 hours. It contains 5-15% of concentration which makes it lighter than EDP. Has a delicate fragrance and is a good choice for everyday wear. This is also a light scent designed for shorter wear on the skin.

Eau de Cologne (EDC) 
This is the least concentrated amongst the four levels fragrance. Eau de Cologne is the most vulnerable and often marketed to men. It contains 2-4% of concentration and generally lasts up to 2 hours. It is close to an aftershave and apparently a more popular choice as it is more gentle on the skin.

Eau Fraiche
This is the feminine term used for women's eau de cologne concentrations, containing 1-3% of perfume oil and generally lasts only about 1 hour away and quickly evaporate due to the high rate of alcohol. Therefore, does not smell as strong as other perfume concentrations. Eau Fraiche is usually referred to by the term Body Mist Perfume or Body Splash.

Lemon Water Can Really Improve Your Morning (And Day)

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Check out these 12 reasons to start drinking lemon water first thing in the morning and make sure the water is warm or room temperature.

Lemon Water
There may be arguments in the health community about exactly how much water to drink each day, but we do know it's important to stay hydrated. For those who find water boring, lemon has long been suggested as a tasty addition to help compel them to chug.

Constipation Help
If you're having trouble pooping, warm water and lemon might be just the thing to help you go. Taking in plenty of water is helpful for constipation in general, and the citrus can give some help to get things moving inside.

Stop UTIs
If you're suffering from a Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) or want a way to prevent them, lemon water can help. Lemon helps change the pH blood and the urinary tract so that harmful bacteria can't stick around.

Battle Breath
Of course, there's no way to avoid morning breath, but drinking lemon water can combat the bacteria in the mouth, and therefore, lessen the potential for bad breath. Be careful, though - lemons can also erode the enamel on your teeth, so it's a good idea to rinse with plain water after your glass.

Weight Loss
There are a variety of theories as to why lemon water might cause weight loss (including feeling more full from the pectin contained within).

Freshen Your Skin
Thanks to all the vitamin C within lemons, your skin reaps the benefits of you drinking the fruit as well. Vitamin C assists in the production of collagen, so having more in your diet can prevent wrinkles from forming. And of course, drinking lots of water is great for skin in general.

Pump Up The Immune System
There's a reason you're always drawn to oranges when you're sick — once again, the power of vitamin C at play. Consuming the vitamin daily (via lemon water) can help keep you healthy and stave off infection. 

Recover From A Workout
Sports drinks have long been seen as the best way to 'rehydrate' after a workout, but they're often unnecessary for the kind of exercise most people do regularly. Lemon water, meanwhile, provides the hydration needed.

Helps With Aches And Pains
Lemon water can help reduce uric acid in our joints, which is one of the main causes of inflammation, especially as related to arthritis.

Reduces Phlegm
It's a sad fact of our cold weather existence - phlegm happens, especially in the morning, but lemon juice can help. Adding a little honey to help rid your body of the mucous.

Strengthens The Brain
Lemon may be known best for its vitamin C, but it also contains potassium, which helps with brain and nerve function. So for a quick natural way to feel more alert, lemon water is a great bet.

Cleanses The Liver
The liver can make more enzymes out of lemon juice than any other food. While we aren't advocating for an intensive cleanse (we know those are unnecessarily), this can help give your organ a boost.

The Difference Between BB, CC and DD Creams

Thursday, March 6, 2014

The Difference Between BB, CC & DD Creams (Click to enlarge)
BB Creams
BB cream stands for blemish balm, blemish base, beblesh balm (apparently because of a trademark in Korea on the word "blemish"), and in Western markets, beauty balm. It is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia, although the majority of larger beauty brands have introduced BB creams to Western markets. BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage. 

CC Creams
CC cream is a marketing term coined in the wake of the marketing term Blemish Balm cream or Beauty Balm. Both BB creams and CC creams are tinted moisturizers containing sun protection. There is no scientific definition for either term, nor is there quantifiable basis for difference between BB creams and CC creams: differences between the two vary from brand to brand. CC cream is used by some brands to mean Color Control cream, or Color Correcting cream, and some brands claim to reduce the appearance of skin redness or sallowness or to improve uneven skin tone. BB (Blemish Balm) cream was originally formulated in Germany and has in recent years gained popularity in Asia, and is also gaining popularity Europe and North America. Coverage can vary greatly among the different brands, and differences are more often than not minimal when compared to BB creams. Some users apply them as primers rather than as a replacement for foundation. If you're acne-prone, have dull skin, dark spots or constant redness, CC cream is for you. Use CC cream to help with redness, acne, dark spots, sallowness and more. It's also lighter than BB cream! 

DD Creams
DD creams combine the power and benefits of both BB and CC creams. However, their primary focus is anti-aging. The anti-aging speciality of the cream works to diminish wrinkles and fine lines throughout use. Additionally, DD cream will balance skin tone and protect the most sensitive areas of your skin. Supposedly, you'll really see improvements in your skin with continued use, so use often and incorporate it into your daily routine! DD cream's strongest selling point is their anti-aging benefits. If you're looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, this cream is the cream for you.

One of Frida Kahlo's most striking features was her full and fearless eyebrows. Her thick eyebrows were a part of unique beauty. In fact, her thick eyebrows met in the middle and crowned her delicate nose. Yes, if you want thicker and fuller eyebrows like Frida Kahlo, here are some quick and natural home remedies to help you grow your eyebrows back faster.

Bushy Brows: Frida Kahlo
1. Olive Oil
Apply olive oil to eyebrows once per day at bedtime. It helps the eyebrows get thicker by moisturizing hair follicles. This keeps them healthy and encourages hair growth. Apply two or three drops of olive oil on a cotton swab. Brush the olive oil on the eyebrows using the swab. Leave it on overnight and wash off in the morning. 

2. Petroleum Jelly
Put petroleum jelly on eyebrows twice a day. Dip a cotton swab into the container and apply to the eyebrows. Apply it twice per day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Use a bit less in the morning so that it does not make your face look greasy. Petroleum jelly traps moisture in the skin which moisturizes the follicles in your eyebrows. 

3. Coconut Oil
Apply coconut oil to eyebrows once a day. Coconut oil can help them grow back thicker and faster without being very greasy. It moisturizes the eyebrow hairs and also keeps the hair follicles healthy, which helps the hair grow. Dip a finger into a jar or contianer of coconut oil and put it on the eyebrows. Do this before bed and wash it off in the morning.

4. Aloe Vera
Put aloe vera gel directly from an aloe vera plant onto eyebrows twice per day. Aloe vera reduces sebum which can block hair follicles. Break open a leaf and apply the aloe vera to the eyebrows using a finger. Only use a little bit as it can make them feel sticky if you use too much. 

5. Onion Juice
Onion juice contains sulphur, which helps in faster and denser growth of hair. Grind an onion and massage its juice into the eyebrows. Leave it on until it dries and then wash it off. 

6. Milk
Milk contains proteins, which nourish hair roots. Therefore, you can use milk to improve the hair growth of your eyebrows. Take a small bowl of milk and using a cotton bud apply this on your eyebrows. Smear it well all over your eyebrows so that it nourishes every strand. In a few weeks, you will notice results.
