Skin Care Prep

Alright my darling readers....

I want to share some tips, well its only because I trust what I use and only recommend the best and result worthy.

Everybody wants to have that glow....of course spiritually, your own inner self will be glowing..but it wont hurt to get your skin glowing too. I am blessed with normal skin, oily tzone, but I have a few acne marks here and there from yester years and also the stubborn blackheads.. I do have facials done, but honestly my job just kills time really. So I had to take matters into my own hands.

There are some products that even my friends used too coz they saw the difference it reflected on me.

Shall we start?

alright here goes all

  1. Himalaya's Neem Face Pack - its like taking a layer of dead skin cells off your every time! I use it like 2 times a week, if I can. All you do is apply an ever layer all over skin, not too little, but be generous, and wait for it to dry, usually less than 10 mins. Then use a wet sponge to wipe it off. The price is affordable around RM 27.00, available at all pharmacies and also the Himalaya boutique.                     
  2. Then I use  a scrub to really scrape of the final dead skin cells, Laura Mercier's Face Polish. Just a small amount to gommage your face. No more than 2 minutes...But I really feel that my skin is so smooth after this. Previously I just used St Ives Apricot Scrub, its been in the market forever! But I stumble upon LM's and just couldn't resist to try, and in love till today. However its a tad expensive really RM 90 I think per tube. But you can just use St Ives Apricot Scrub which is a mere RM16. 
  3. Ok so now all your pores are open, so please we need to tighten them up and sealed, delivered, I'm yours.. Zain uses, St Ives Firming Clay Mask since I was 15 years old. It really is just that good! It firms up the pores. Price, RM 17 i think last i bought.                                                                                           
  4. Ok...make up remover is an ESSENTIAL, coz you must get all of it OFF before you go to bed and let your skin breathe. Luckily for me, I have tried so many types of make up removers. From Shu Uemura to Loreal, Ponds, Olay...and the list goes on. I sound old right? Well the winner for me is, Neutragena Deep Clean Cleansing Lotion. My skin dramatically became softer. I never changed brands since. A steal at RM 26.50!          
 Lips.... I never gave it much tender love and care... Except for smacking on lip balms whenever possible. But my make up maestro introduced me to one lip balm, that I wear on before I sleep...and in the morning, ohhhh my lips are so soft like a baby's! I am not trying to be pretentious, but its so true! If you are willing to pay a lot, I must say this is worth every cent you pay. It is Bobbi Brown's Lip Balm. RM 70 if not mistaken, I bought my first, and it takes forever to finish! Coz you dont apply a lot, and its just for the lips!                                                                        

Alright, this list will be edited soon to add a few more stuff, I just really need to get some beauty sleep now ;)

Love Zain

  2. hi... thanks for dropping by..basically, I am almost addicted to these stuff, its a way to maintain my skin since I dont get facials often and its good enough for me, esp when I apply make up, it glides on easily..
