My Skin Journey With Annabelle Skin | One Year Later~

Hello my readers, it has been a while since i have last updated on my skin! I have been a paying customer with Annabelle Skin for a year and i must say that this is the best decision i had made for my skin.🙂 Gone were the days whereby i will be depressed over acne breakouts and persistent bumps on my skin. My skin is also less sensitive, less oily, brighter with small pores size!🙂

What set Annabelle Skin different from other salons which i have been to is that each facial treatment will be customized. Throughout my 1 year skin journey with Annabelle Skin, i have tried different types of Skin Treatments to address my ‘then’ skin condition. I love this personal touch as the skin condition will be ever-changing due to external factors and stress level. Hence, customized treatments in accordance to skin condition will help address and target problem areas better! This is the state of my skin BEFORE all the facial treatments at Annabelle Skin. See the amount of red patches, bumps and breakouts that i had?!

Here’s my skin’s condition before my 12th facial treatment (Clear and smooth skin isn’t it?) . Before the start of every session, Mandy (my beautician) will always access the current condition. Mandy told me that she will work on skin hydration and healing.  The facial treatment started off with cleansing. As i did not have any makeup on, Mandy went straight into normal skin cleansing  with the use of Sensi-Bel Delicate Cleanser followed by Sensi-Bel Delicate Tonic to remove remaining residues. Next step is to exfoliate with a gentle scrub to get rid of impurities and dead skin cell. Mandy told me that my skin isn’t as sensitive as before so she can use scrub on my skin.🙂

After which, cold steam was used to further hydrate and soothe my skin for 15 minutes before extraction commerce! Over at Annabelle Skin, they do not promote squeezing to decongest pores. Extraction is done using a special extraction tool from Switzerland together with special technique to remove blackheads & clogged sebum. As a result, it is not as painful and red as compared to conventional extraction. Personally, i felt that extraction seems less painful nowadays as the clogged particles are not embarked deep within and there’s lesser clogged pores / congestion (yay!).

Steaming

After extraction, Mandy sterilized my skin with a high frequency machine to kill bacteria on the skin’s surface.. During the process, i experienced a mild ting-ing p sensation. After which, she applied Intensa Ampoules No.12 on my skin. What i love about Dr Belter’s ampoule is that it does not cause a burning / stinging sensation during application (which i will experience with other brand’s).

[AMPOULE No. 12 ANTI-STRESS]

The physical and psychological stress of everyday life coupled with environmental influences lead increasingly to unpleasant skin irritation and disturbance. The skin is the largest human sensory organ and must be strengthened and protected against these attacks. This ampoule serum encompasses special plant complexes and key milk properties as a powerful shield, on guard to protect you.

Extraction completed!

At the last stage of the treatment, Mandy applied a nourishment mask on my skin before using the Photolight 660 device to promote skin healing ans stability. Originating from Biogenie France, the development of Photolight 660 is based on several years of research in cosmetology on the optimal treatment of skins after damages due to the sun and to ageing. It is a non-invasive and athermic technique which uses a very specific light wave’s length of 660 nanometres that stimulates the production of collagen on fibroblasts. Photolight 660 was used on my skin to help improve the skin tone evenness, diminishes red blotches and to aid with skin healing.

Immediately after facial, my skin will have this after facial glow and it will be smoother & brighter! It is normal to experience mild purging in the form of small pimples with pus as the facial will ‘push’ skin impurities embedded within pores to the surface. During these 2 days, i just have to take extra care in applying pimple gel to dry it up and also try to resist squeezing it.. Nowadays, i hardly have those big headache acne on my skin and i will only have mild hormonal breakouts when nearing my period. Another obvious difference is the reduction in pore size and i’m really pleased with it (It is possible to achieve this through regular facial instead of harsh laser treatment!)

Have tried a few items from the De-Stress – Home Spa Set and here’s the feedback:

My husband loves using bar soap but he often complains that it is too drying for his skin.. Have replaced the bar soap with the De-Stress Cleansing Bar and he loves the scent! Not only that the cleansing bar has good cleansing power – rich and smooth lather, he finds that it is non-drying

De-Stress Cleansing Bar

The Relaxing Body Cleanser smells soothing and relaxing… The scent will linger in the toilet after i’m out of the shower (Love it!!) room. Relaxing Body Cleanser does a good job keeping my skin smooth, clean and radiant (without being too drying!). The gel texture of the body cleanser makes it easy to spread and also to wash off.. It is also easy to wash it off and clean feels squeaky cleans without any tightness.. After cleansing, it leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth without any tightness…

Recently, i have been so stressed up with work that it is affecting my sleep😦 The Harmonizing Essence Mist is the first thing i have tried after getting the De-stress Home Spa Kit.. Just 2-3 sprays onto my pillow, there’s an instant soothing and calming effect.. The mist doesn’t stain my pillow and i have better quality sleep after using this. Spa Ceylon has another Lavender Mist which has the same effect but personally i feel that the Harmonizing Essence Mist is more suitable for people who cannot accept the stronger scent of lavender.🙂

Harmonizing Essence Mist

The therapist had use the Dashamula Body Treatment Oil on me during the deep tissue massage and i was surprised at its non-greasy formula. Normally i will avoid body massage that uses oil (unless there’s a shower facility in place). Not only that it smells heavenly, i told the therapist that i don’t find the need to shower after the massage ended. Wise choice as she said that it is best to leave the treatment oil for better results.

Various Laser & Non-laser Treatment Options for Skin Tightening

Let’s talk about a beauty-related  topic which many are concerned with!

Have you seen the movie – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button back in 2009? To summarize, this movie talks about Benjamin’s bizarre and extraordinary life-story as he ages backwards and live his life ‘aging in reverse’.. When he is born, he suffers from several aging diseases and has to live his child-hood in his eighties while he becomes younger when he gets older with time…

tumblr_inline_muxtrsQccM1qbls7o

Picture from Google Image

As i’m already in my 30s, how i wish i can lead my life-like Benjamin whereby I will look younger when i gets older.. Sad to say, i cannot stop the signs of aging and the best i can do is to age gracefully….

Sooner or later, everyone faces issues with skin sagging and stretching, making you look older than you actually are. While it is often from aging, other factors pre-age such as smoking, over exposure to the sun, and environmental toxins. The good news is that you aren’t powerless in the fight against aging. To fight against aging signs, you can choose between dermatological procedures and skincare solution., you can choose between dermatological procedures and skincare solution. Here are just a few.

Lasers Used for Skin Tightening

There is a multitude of lasers that treat all different kinds of skin conditions. Even if you are looking specifically for skin tightening lasers, there are plenty to choose from:

0cbea15c-be0e-493f-99be-d4249c6aa091_zps31651e52

* Fraxel or CO2 – This laser vaporizes skin cells on the surface to exfoliate the skin. Recovery time can take only a few days or up to a few weeks. This treatment does not work on all skin tones, so be careful if you have a darker tone, whether natural or from sun exposure.

* IPL or Intense Pulsed Light – This style of laser uses pulses of light to penetrate the skin and heat the cells, which in turn stimulates collagen production. In order to prevent burns, newer models include a cooling device to cool the skin as the treatments is applied. Like the CO2 laser, the IPL is not recommended for those with darker skin tones as it can cause hyper pigmentation.

* Thermage – This laser delivers heat to the deeper skin layer, leaving the surface of the skin untouched. This makes it ideal for all skin tones, though anyone with oily skin should confirm with the clinic that it won’t be a problem. Because it is non-ablative, the down time is only a few hours for the average treatment. If a larger area is being treated, it may take longer.

* Ultherapy – This device uses ultrasound technology to encourage collagen production for thicker, tightened skin. It is ideal for the face, neck, jowls, and brow.

Non Laser Treatments

Pretty much everyone has heard of plastic surgery, an invasive method for tightening skin. It has a long recovery time, depending on the extent of surgery being performed. There are many possible side effects like severely swollen skin, potential infections, and heavy scarring. Also, there are some major risks, especially if you have a heart condition or diabetes. It’s true that the results are usually very dramatic and long-lasting, but you need to carefully weigh the risks before going through with such a drastic procedure.

Before Making a Decision

Don’t choose which method without consulting with your doctor or dermatologist first. Remember, even if friends swear by a certain treatment, it doesn’t mean it will work for your needs. You have to factor in all risks, consider any side effects, and look at your skin tone and condition. Finally, learn about the results each method provides. Then decide if it’s worth it for you.

CHO Renew – To Clean Intestine, Clear Skin & Better Immunity!

Hello everyone!!! Since young, i have been ‘suffering’ from poor intestinal health! Despite incorporating fruits and vegetable into my diet (not forgetting drinking enough water), i’m still having constipation issues!😦 It will worsen whenever i travel due to the sudden change in diet.  You cannot imagine how terrible i feel when there’s nooo output for 4-5 days.. One fine day, my friend introduced me to Probiotics and i never look back since… It improved my constipation problem but it has to be refrigerated (really troublesome!) so i cannot bring it along when i travel.

A Clean Intestine is the Key to Good Health

Did you know that your gut flora was formed right after you were born? After birth, your body starts to encounter good and bad bacteria and begins to build your immune system. As you grow, your gut bacteria serves as a barrier protecting your body from the bad bacteria and pathogen you come across. However, the percentage of good bacteria in our intestine declines with age. It has been shown in recent research that by the time one reaches their 60s, the significant drop in the number of bacteria in their gut, will make one more susceptible to gastrointestinal infections, bowel conditions and problem as follows:

Healthy intestines with a balanced gut flora high in good bacteria is critical for good intestinal health, immunity and overall well-being. There are three types of bacteria in our intestine – good, bad and neutral bacteria. As such, poor intestinal health is the root cause of many chronic disease.

I will never fail to suffer from constipation whenever i’m overseas and it can be a mood dampener! This time round, i have packed 5 sachets of CHO Renew in my luggage during my beach vacation to Belitung. What i love about CHO Renew is how travel-friendly it is! I don’t have to worry about keeping my probiotics chilled to prevent damages to its properties.. Moreover, the sachets packaging makes consumption more hygienic and convenient.

IMG20160809133051 IMG20160809133139

I have taken CHO Renew on a daily basis (for 5 days) before breakfast. My friend told me that it is better to consume Probiotics on empty stomach..  Every morning, i will consume the powder bit by bit with sips of water in between. The powder has a slight sourish orange taste which i like🙂 The powder will turned into a starchy and thick consistency when it comes into contact with water. Hence, it is better to drink enough water in between to wash it down.

IMG20160811075816 IMG20160811075845

The next morning after i consumed  my first sachet of CHŌ Renew, i had output!! For the remaining days, i have daily output! hahaha! Not to worry, CHO Renew is a supplement and not laxative so it won’t cause loose stools / stomach upset (which often assocaite with laxative) Without constipation and bloated-ness, i could fully enjoy my vacation.🙂
