Been quite busy with personal projects of late so I have not been really blogging. And I really need to get back on track with that job hunting, I can feel myself sinking into my comfort zone. I need to get creative, go out and do my thing or simply do something besides shopping :X
So let’s just do a quick summary on what I have been up to. First of, I had Brazilian Gold Keratin treatment done. I had a trim but this hairstylist noob ruined my hair, she practically thinned my hair by 50%, leaving it with too many layers and super frizzy. So I had to tame it but I could not see myself splurging $300 on a hair treatment. Which is why a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do and that was to head down to Fave (old Groupon) to grab a coupon for Keratin treatment. My girlfriend actually shared this with me and I decided to give it a try. I know there are a couple of Keratin treatments on Fave, the one which I had selected was Luxe X M at Katong 112.
It is summer and time for pool parties and water sports fun but before you even head outdoors. Make sure that you have the right sunscreen for your skin. Did you know that even if you are just be staying indoors at work or in the shopping malls. You should also remember to put on your sunscreen diligently as even though UVB is blocked by the glass windows but UVA can still reach you through the indoor lighting.
So what should we look out while shopping for a suitable sunscreen?
Had my first IPL experience over at Japan IPL after I bought a coupon off Fave, where they had 100 shots for just S$65 (I paid S$50 after using a promo code). So Japan IPL has several branches islandwide and the great thing about them is that you do not need to book an appointment. Just head down to your desired branch and get your IPL done.
The areas which I decided to try out IPL on were my upper lips and underarms. I had gone down with the intention of just utilising the shots for my upper lips because I was sick of having a shadow above my lips. But I was told that I had to utilise a minimum of 20 shots for the first round as they were giving these 20 shots for free to new customers. Upper lips requires just 10 shots so I decided to just get my underarms done too.
This is a little late, I have been using the Loveisderma Hydramax Serum for a month plus and loving it. Loveisderma is a Taiwanese beauty brand whose products are clinically tested and suitable for problematic skin types such as Acne, Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis and Seborrhea. The mixture of the extracts and the unique formulas provide high level of satisfaction among doctors and consumers worldwide.
If you have been feeling sluggish in the morning and stayed lethargic the whole day, found yourself falling sick more often, noticed a change in the way your breath smells and is spotting dull complexion, then it might mean that it is time for a gut cleanse! Imbalanced gut health can affect not only your intestines but also your overall health and mood.
I am not getting any younger and signs of aging are already showing, at the same time, I am also concerned with maintaining a slim, V-shape face. So when I heard about Sygmalift, I was really excited about trying it out. It is totally non-invasive, no injections or threads involved, and most importantly, it is painless without down time!
Sygmalift uses a combination of High Intensity Focal Ultrasound in fractionated mode to help lift and remodel the face shape into a slimmer, V shaped face and a cold laser 635 nm that stimulates the skin to encourage collagen generation and enhances the complexion.
I am no stranger to massages but getting a Bust Lymphatic Drainage & Tummy Anti-Wind Relief Therapy (Womb Care) massage was a first for me. I arrived at the Chrysalis Spa at Ang Mo Kio Hub level 3, one of the 5 outlets which they have islandwide. And I was warmly greeted by the spa manager who served me some red dates tea promptly after I settled down. I had initially thought of getting a full body massage but decided on the Bust Lymphatic Drainage & Tummy Anti-Wind Relief Therapy (Womb Care) massage eventually because I had not tried anything like this before and I was looking forward to see what benefits I could reap from it.
After going for monthly facials at Nu Reflections Face & Body Clinic and making a conscientious effort in looking after my skin, I’m starting to see visible improvement. The Eternal Youth Facials have been most pampering and moisturising for the skin, and helpful in tackling aging concerns. I still get mistaken for being early twenties or mid twenties and I believe I should credit that to part maintenance and part genetics.
This month, I got to try a new facial treatment, called the Aqua Facetherapy facial.
