(Sponsored Review) ‘Three-course meal’ to radiant skin from top to toe!

It is¬†approximately¬†25 more days to the big day and in order to look my best on 250513, I am taking extra care in maintaining my physical appearance…¬†Hereby, let me share with you on the ‘three-course meal’¬†(Three Tips) to radiant skin from top to toe!

First Course: Sufficient Sleep

Getting enough¬†quality sleep and a good sleep¬†habit¬†plays a vital role in protecting¬†our mental / physical¬†health, ensuring quality of life and general well-being.. Skin-wise, sleep plays an important role if you want your skin to stay in¬†excellent condition… This is because as you sleep,¬†the body¬†will work hard to heal and repair your body by releasing hormone to promotes normal growth, repair cells and tissues. Deep sleep will also helps to strength the immune system and defends the body against foreign or harmful substances. If you are facing ongoing sleep deficiency, you will¬†definitely face¬†skin issues like dull-skin,¬†pimples outbreaks¬†and dark eye circles.. =/

Previously i was facing insomnia due to stress and i have researched on some methods to help me sleep better.. Tried out some tips so here are three of my favorite methods (With visual aids below):

See no light: Our bodies are designed to sleep in a quiet and dark environment. When resting in a dark room, our body will start to produce¬†Melatonin which¬†prepares us for sleep..¬†While asleep, melatonin will also act as¬†anti-oxidant to¬†clean out the free radicals and other toxins in the body.. Therefore sufficient sleep¬†plays a critical role to¬†recuperate and restore health and physical well-being.. To enable the body to produce Melatonin, it is important¬†to rest in a¬†conducive and dark environment. One recommendation is that you can use an eye-mask to shield out lights.. ūüôā

Hear no sound: As mentioned¬†above, a¬†quiet environment is also important for a good night sleep.¬†If you are a light sleeper (like me), getting quality sleep will be a challenging task when you are being disturbed¬†by the slightest sound. I will suggest that¬†you¬†can¬†purchase an ear¬†plug which will help you to block out majority of sound so that you can get into deep sleep fast…

Speak no more: Keep quiet, relax, unwind and clear your mind! Soon enough, you will find yourself drifting into LALA land.. Also, try not to get too worked up and overly anxious over losing sleep (as you will find it hard to sleep if you are feeling tense).. Try making yourself a cup of camomile tea to sooth your nerves if you are tensed.

If everything fails, just start counting sheep! Bahhh~~

Second Course: Cleanse & Exfoliate

After a good night sleep, its time for your shower to refreshen¬†up and also keep yourself clean!¬† I cannot emphasis how important it is to cleanse your skin well daily and to¬†exfoliate¬†regularly (1-2 times weekly) in order to keep skin healthy + imperfections at bay… In order to achieve it,¬†it is important to use effective products that will remove all dust, excessive sebum, impurities and make-up which contributes to skin problems.. In addition, you will need a perfectly cleanse skin in order to prep it for your other skincare/ Bodycare¬†products (So that whatever you applied on will be fully absorbed and penetrated by the skin).. So if you think that your skincare¬†/¬†Body-care¬†products¬†aren’t¬†working well, maybe you should take a step back and look at your basic cleansing routine.. If your pores are congested with impurities and residues, how can your skin be radiant?

For the Face:  

For effective cleansing, i’m currently using Babor Bi-Phase cleansing set which consists of HY-Ol and Phytoactive… The Bi-Phase cleansing will allow you to enjoy clear skin by deep cleansing it so that valuable ingredients of your skincare products will absorbed and processed effectively.

Because i¬†have facial skin which clogs so easily, i¬†will also need to exfoliate¬†my facial skin once a week to remove stubborn dead skin cells and built up… My current favorite will be the honey scrub from Honey Way and i love how it buffs away dullness from my skin and how bright and clean my skin feels after exfoliation.

Bleah! Dead Skin Cells be gone!!

For the Body:

My¬†definition¬†of a good¬†body¬†cleanser will be one which will be able to deep cleanse to get rid of¬†impurities¬†/ sweat / oil , kills germs to prevent diseases, eliminate BO and lastly to nourish skin while staying skin friendly.¬†It is¬†essential to shower everyday with a reliable body wash in order to keep skin clean, maintain good skin’s health and most importantly to prevent diseases.

Dettol¬†is my family members’ choice of bodywash¬†and it¬†is also a household brand well-known for its antiseptics personal and¬†home-care¬†products. With a diverse range of products, Dettol is a highly trusted brand coined as safe, effective and of exceptional quality.

In May, Dettol is going to launch a new bodywash known as Dettol Radiance which is not only able to cleanse skin, remove germs, nourish skin but also able to rejuvenate, purify and help skin regain radiance.. Thank for Dettol for this god-sent product (just in time) as i need to boost the radiance of my skin..

Formulated with a unique blend of Vitamin B3¬†and C* (the booster for beautiful skin), Dettol¬†Radiance replenishes¬†skin with¬†needed nutrients to promote rejuvenation, purification and revitalization of skin. Together with Dettol’s¬†renowned germ protection capabilities to cleanse and remove germs, this perfect combination will reveal the skin with inner radiance, shine and healthy glow.

*Vitamin B3 is able to contribute to younger and firmer skin while Vitamin C has antioxidant properties to promote healthy + supple skin/

Dettol Radiance range is available in body wash and Soap Bars (RSP: $3.20 to $10.90).

On a daily basis, i’m¬†using the all-new dettol¬†radiance wash to keep my skin smooth, clean and radiant… I always love how Dettol’s¬†body wash smells!¬† The new Dettol¬†Radiance body wash has a slight citrus floral scent¬†cupped¬†together with the Dettol’s¬†signature antiseptic smell. The texture of the body wash has a rich cream base and it foams up well.. Because it is so creamy and foamy, it¬†is¬†easy to spread all over the body¬†with just a small amount.. 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 and smelling nice… Because it contains Salicylic acid, it helps to calm down the redness¬†of my¬†chest acne… After¬†using it¬†for a week, there’s no adverse reactions like itching¬†or¬†red patches.. However, I¬†did not see much difference on the radiance part..

Same like¬†our face, we must not neglect our body as well as the skin on¬†our body needs regular¬†exfoliation to remove dead skin cell built up so as to promote regeneration and absorption of body lotion… Overtime, the skin on the body will¬†appear to be¬†smoother, more radiant¬†and healthier.. If you have sensitive skin like me, you can just use a normal body wash and exfoliating¬†cloth to ‘scrub’ your skin… I’m using Dettol¬†Radiance body wash together with my exfoliating¬†buff to exfoliate¬†my skin! It works the same (without the harshness of body scrub that contains beads) but it doesn’t cause any stinging sensation and red patches. I love how smooth, bright¬†and clean my skin is after exfoliating.

Third Course РSun Protection

Living in the tropics,¬†the¬†climate will tends to be hot¬†with the sun¬†showing no mercy! Hence, Protection against harsh UV rays is a major concern for most people. Do yu know that the sun‚Äôs ultraviolet b (UVB) rays causes sunburn and ultraviolet a (UVA) rays lead to photo-aging and skin cancer?¬† UV exposure will also accelerate eye aging and triggers cataract (Not forgetting higher risks amongst other vision problems as well)…

Therefore, for healthy and radiant skin, it is vital not to skip sunblock in your daily skincare routine.. The function of a broad-spectrum sunblock is to shelter your skin by absorbing these dangerous rays. This will prevent them from posing harm to your skin by penetrating deep into the skin layers.

Currently, We have sun protection for our skin, body, lips and hair and now even for the eyes! Just like what Rilakkuma is doing, prevention is always better than cure!

I’m not afraid of what the sun can do to me! I have sun protection from Head to Toe! Hehe!

Lastly, my secret to smooth, soft and radiant skin – Sun-protection is the key! For both the face and body,¬†¬†broad-spectrum protection against broad-spectrum UVA and UVB rays is very important for me to prevent pigmentation, dull skin and skin cancer… I will also recommend the use of¬† minimum SPF50¬†PA+++ high protection sunblock to stay well-prepared against harmful sunrays (Even if you are staying indoors). It is also important to reapply sunblock throughout the day as the properties of sun protection will diminish due to sweat, serum and friction etc.

Hope you will enjoy the 3 little tips that i have just shared! Stay happy and may you have a great week ahead!

But before giving you more details on how to win this, continue reading.. :p

The Miracle Bio Water contains 20 excellent efficacies which made it ideal for all skin-types especially sensitive ones.. Because the Bio water is uniquely low in mineral content yet rich in trace minerals,  the composition of the spray will provide users with 2X cooling, soothing, softening, moisturizing and anti-irritating effects.Not only it is beneficial for the face, this Bio water spray can be used on the hair and body as well..

I have been using mineral spray as part of my skincare¬†regime as it will calm down the sensitivity of my skin and help to prep my skin before make-up.. Do you know that trace minerals will help boost the health of your skin? Due to our highly stressful environment and body’s¬†mineral¬†deficiencies, our skin cells suffer from fatigue and skin dullness as a result.¬†Trace minerals (they are essential minerals required by human health) will accelerates¬†skin healing process and improve skin’s hydration and texture…

I don’t know what type of minerals that other sprays contain but one point to highlight will be that while minerals are vital, higher mineral content releases more energy¬†and heat which will be drying to the skin. Therefore, the right type of minerals must be used and in the correct composition..

For Bio-essence Bio-spring Water, it has a unique composition which consists of high trace minerals which are the perfect, natural treatment to obtain optimum skin care health. Adapting unique Bio-technology to combine Spring Water and Bio-Energy Fluid, Bio-Spring Water contains trace mineral to create energy to stimulate blood and oxygen circulation. As such, this coolest spring water will yield the best soothing, anti-irritation and calming effects on skin.

Since Bio-Spring water is low in mineral content and sodium chloride content yet rich in trace minerals, this creates lesser energy and heat which is ideal for cooling and soothing sensitive and irritable skin..¬†Bio-Spring water is low in Sodium Chloride content (as high sodium Chloride content will dehydrates skin as it absorbs moisture from the skin)¬†which will help keep more moisture within the skin’s layer.

My Verdict

The miracle Bio water is house in a spray bottle and available in 3 sizes (this makes it more convenient for you to carry it around).. ¬†To use it, just hold the bottle at a distance not less than 20 cm from targeted area and spray on. After which,¬†pat it dry gently and if you are using it after make-up, there is no need to pat dry.¬†Texture¬†wise, it just looks like water and i did not detect any scent… After it gets absorbed into the skin, it doesn’t leave any sticky or greasy film behind..

Here’s the state of my skin at present – Sensitive with redness and some sensitive boils.. Even with concealer and loose powder, i am unable to hide the redness.. This is a norm when my hormones are at rage!!! Hence, I have decided to DIY a mask with the Bio-essence Miracle Bio Water in order to sooth my skin.

Ta-dah! Here’s my DIY cotton pad mask! Hahahaha!

Simply just grab some cotton-pad, soak it with the Bio water and apply it onto your face. Leave it on for 10-mins and there’s no need to rinse your face after removal..

After removal of the DIY mask, I observed that my¬†bare-skin¬†is less red, calmer and the next morning the sensitive boils are gone! However, it doesn’t help much in refining my pores and reduce oiliness.. Will recommend this spray if you wish to relieve the sensitivity of your skin and also if you are looking for something to freshen your skin.. ūüôā
