Ever since a dermatologist mentioned that I had excellent skin, it made me more determined to take good care of it. So I thought it was pretty timely when I was introduced to Ziaja skincare products, a brand that’s new to Singapore. I was given their moisturizer and eye cream to try out. The are the products which I am going to review today are from their Marine Algae range: Continue reading

Helping My Guardian Angel Turn Back the Hands of Time

Mother’s day is just around the corner and I had spent days mulling over the perfect present for my mom. She had been of great help in looking after my cheeky 6 months old baby ever since he was born.

Usually, a typical Mother’s day celebration for us would involve the family having a meal out at some nice restaurant. But that idea was growing stale. So this year, I had wanted to do things differently.

One night, I was watching my mother put my baby to sleep. And then it dawned upon me how the many months of babysitting & late nights had worn her out, causing her to look haggard and tired. My mother is someone who still enjoyed dressing up and looking good. So I was really touched by her sacrifices for her grandson and how it all was started to show on her face.

So I’ve been reading up articles on AestheticsHub.com on non-invasive treatments such as Botulinum Toxin A. And that was when I thought of getting her a unique and special gift to regain her youthfulness; a Botulinum Toxin A session at Prive Clinic.

Smile bags, Tear bags, Eye bags…

If you naturally have these bags under your eyes, most commonly known as smile bags aka 笑袋. Then you shouldn’t try to conceal them because it has been trending in Japan since last year. And women all over Asia are trying to emulate this makeup look as well. I guess I’m in luck, because I have them naturally.

It’s amazing what these girls do to achieve such a look which is said to make your eyes appear bigger. *stares into mirror, does it?* They use highlighters, eyeliners, contouring powder and now, eyelid tape?!?! Seriously??

Saw this picture being shown on Facebook…

So what’s your take on this? I find the AFTER photo with the eye bags actually makes her look older. How can anyone find this cute. While I’m busy trying to photoshop my eye bags away from most of my photos, there these women actually wish that they have them.

I personally do not recommend doing this too often as you know, some people get double eyelids from wearing tape for years. Can you imagine permanent folds under your eyes if you do this too often. @_@

Robin Niu’s Beauty Tips [Videos + Summaries] 牛尔老师

Happened to chance upon these videos while I was surfing Asiaone.
Robin Niu (牛尔老师), Taiwanese beauty guru was in town recently to promote KOSE & also host a beauty workshop. I found some of the beauty tips useful and hence, would like to share it on my blog.

For those who don’t understand chinese, I will try my best to summarize each video’s contents. As my chinese is of C6 standard only, do bear with me :)

Robin Niu spends 3 hours on skincare routine

Robin Niu was mistaken as a 26-28 years old overseas when he was actually 41 years old then. How does he manage to look so young still? He claims to spend 2-3 hours on skincare. Seriously, I can’t do that :( Most importantly, use cleanser, moisturizer and sun care.

Pat your lines away

He swipes the pad over her face first to remove the makeup before patting for 200 times. Robin Niu says there’s no ugly women, only lazy women!! (Yes, that’s me – Miss Lazy) Anyway, he explains that patting is essential because it will help skincare products which are applied afterwards to be penetrated deep into the skin and moisture will also be retained to keep the skin hydrated.

Patting can lessen the appearance of lines, wrinkles and uplift your face shape too. OMG! I must try this….

Massage your eyebags away

If you can view the above video, please CLICK HERE

If you use your computer for long hours, the skin below the eyes will become droopy and saggy. As we only have a few muscles around that area, its elasticity will be reduced overtime. Our eyeball presses against the skin as we look down, so eventually eyebags will form. But do not be tempted to do eyebag removal surgery unless the doctor is really qualified to do so, as some patients end up with sunken eyes after that.

The video shows 4 steps on how to massage your eyes. Look up and use your 4th finger to pat gently below the eye area for 200 times. After that, close your lids and pat 50 times. This is called the Piano Finger move.

The next step is called the Scissor Finger movement, as shown in the video. Press down with both fingers seperated and your eye is in the center of the two fingers. Move them towards the side and then press down hard on at the area near your temples and press/massage hard down. There is an acupoint there. Next, push it down to the lymph node around the neck area to flush all water retention over.

The third step is the Acupoint Move, use your middle finger for this. Press your middle finger at the area near the inner corner of the eye and then below the eye, right smack in the middle. Next, move your finger further below the same point, before moving up to the outer corner of the eye. The next acupoint would be the tip of the inner eyebrow, followed by the middle and then the end of your brow.

The last step requires you to rub your palms together 20 times before pressing it against your face. This promotes the stimulation of endorphins.
Seriously, I think Japanese ladies look so good because they spend so much time doing all these to their skin as well.

Robin says that dead skin cells will accumulate and form whiteheads/blackheads if not removed every 2 days. When cleansing your face, pat all over before using the other side of the cotton pad to rub gently off. The deep cleansing oil has a special oil ingredient which is fine enough to penetrate into our pores and loosen our whiteheads/blackheads.

He rubs the deep cleansing oil onto one part of the volunteer’s face. This is now really interesting, he uses what looks like small sheets of shrink wrap to cover the top of the areas where he has rubbed the cleansing oil on. Robin Niu says its his secret tip. This should be done daily for 10mins!!

How it works is that our natural temperature will loosen the whiteheads/blackheads. Hence, when we rinse our face, the whiteheads/blackheads will be removed as well! The remaining more stubborn whiteheads/blackheads can be removed with the famous KOSE mask white. Wow, you can actually see the difference on the volunteer’s face.
