2015 October HAUL | Beauty, Health & Fashion

October has gone, and that means it's time for a haul. For the past one month, I spent my money more on supplements that boost beauty and health from the inside out as well as fashion items rather than on skin care and make-up products.

Without further ado, let's jump into the topic! Starting from BEAUTY & HEALTH HAUL~

Here's what I got... :

a beauty gadget called "MIST+"~!


It's basically a device that creates richly oxygenated ultra-fine mist particles that gently penetrate deeply into pores to cleanse and hydrate skin. Furthermore, the bottle comes with a magnetic lid that can be used as a massager. It claims to give therapeutic effect that helps to improve circulation and reduce inflammation and scarring.

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel SPF50+ PA++++ | Review

DID YOU KNOW? — Prolonged exposure to the sun's UV rays without proper protection can cause permanent damages such as premature skin aging, wrinkles and freckles, as well as, various skin damages like discoloration, sallowness, dryness. In extreme cases, it can also lead to skin cancer.

The most damaging UV rays are known as UVA and UVB.

UVA rays penetrate into the deeper layers of our skin and are also the dominant tanning ray. The penetrative ability of UVA rays through glass means that even when you are seeking shelter indoors, your skin continues to be exposed to its harmful effects which can cause cumulative damage such as wrinkling and skin aging.

While UVB rays cause the most damage to the outer layer of skin such as reddening of skin and sunburns. Without proper protection, prolonged exposure to UVB rays can cause long-term damage to skin's epidermal layers.

Apart from UVA and UVB rays, pollution particles are also environmental aggressors that can wreak havoc to your skin. Since it's impossible to avoid the sun, the use of sunscreen is one way to reduce the danger of sun exposure. Hence, it's a MUST to slather on sunscreen before heading out to protect your skin!

However, most of the women in Singapore do not consider protection against UV damage a priority.

5 Habits For Clear Skin | Beauty & Acne Tips



Achieving and maintaining clear skin isn't difficult. Here are the 5 habits to keep your skin in tip-top condition:

Habit 1: No Skincare Shortcut
Is your skincare routine a one-step programme? If yes, you might want to consider adding steps into your routine.

Cleansing is essential, but so is toning and moisturizing. A toner helps to restore skin's natural pH level and cleanse off grime that has not been washed off by the cleanser. A moisturizer keep skin hydrated, preventing skin problems from arising. These three — cleanse, tone and moisturize, are the basic essential steps to keep skin clear and healthy.

If you have pimples, you might want to add another step (the 4th step) — spot or scar treatment. A spot treatment helps to dry up the zits and speed up the healing process, while a scar treatment speed up the fading of dark post acne mark/scar.
