Nutrition for my skin – Oskia London by Caliata Beauty

Our skin which is the largest organ in our body is just like any part of our body. It needs TLC which means it needs nutrients, vitamins, and supplements to restore and renew cells. Oskia London which is a bio-active nutritional skincare is now in Malaysia! Caliata is a beauty website that sources nature-inspired, effective skincare from Europe and USA cult brands and brings it here to Malaysia!! Yay! That's how I found out about Oskia London and how they manage to restore glowing skin through bio-active nutrients. I am constantly afraid to put European products on my skin because I feel it doesn't suit Asian skin, but it wasn't the case with brands from Caliata. Since trying Oskia London out starting from it's...

Natural Products for your hair and scalp – Viege at Aki Hair Studio

Do you experience oily scalp as you grow older or is it due to the Malaysian heat? When I was staying in the hospital for 18 days during my surgeries, I started having oily hair and scalp. Since then, I've been trying to solve it and  found a solution recently. To my delight, it was made of all types of vegetables and natural. Contrary to what we believe, oily scalp actually produces dandruff for us which is what I experienced. I would be really embarrassed because at that point of time, not only was I super thin due to the colostomy bag, but my hair was flaking!! You guys would know that I head to Aki Hair studio when it comes...

Do your bit for charity – The Therapy First Serum by The Face Shop

The Face Shop has just relaunched their Therapy First Serum which is pretty much a miraculous product! Not only have they relaunched it, but with a good cause attached to it. You can be a beauty and support on a cause on top of that too *wink* . I'm all onboard this because the aim for the cause is to raise cancer awareness as any purchase of the bottle of The Therapy First Serum (RM148.29), RM15 will be donated to a cancer organization AND you get another The Therapy First Serum! What this means is that it's Buy ONE, get the 2nd one FREE, you will get a pouch(pic below), and part of the proceeds(RM15) goes to support a cancer...

Quality gel nails at Yu Academie Salon

When it comes to doing my nails, I've never wanted gel nails after ONE bad experience with it which caused my nails to be brittle. However, after meeting Yuki-san from Yu Aacademie salon, my perceptio on gel nails has changed. I am more than happy to do gel nails on both my hands and feet because of the Japanese technology to remove and apply it so it doesn't hurt your nails. Once you walk into their premises, you will feel like you are definitely in  Japanese nail salon because everything is so pretty! We were greeted with pretty cupcakes and mochis flown in from Japan While you are doing your nails there, you can also enjoy the beverages available such as green tea...

Improving our skin through traditional herbs – Yehwadam

Happy Chinese New Year to all celebrating! Hope all of you had a good break and tons of festive celebration and food. As for me, I have been stuffing myself silly, and giving out the red packets ( ang pow) for the first time in my life as I am a newlywed :) During this time, I have also been experimenting a little with my some traditional beauty products which consists of three main ingredients - herbs, plants, and flowers (Yewahdam). I've always wondered how the Korean women have such smooth and fair skin, and even started applying masks three times a week which did improve my skin tone and texture. However, I am STILL trying to achieve that dewy, vibrant...

Christian Dior make-over

Well, I wouldn't call it a total make-over, but it my face did look different that I drew tons of stares on a Monday afternoon at Mid Valley!!!! One of the things that I am afraid of trying is skincare, and beauty products as I have sensitive skin. That's why I am a stickler for the same brand when it comes to cosmetics, especially my foundation and concealer. I was recently invite to do a make-over by a regional make-up maestro of Christian Dior, and try their products. Although I was hesitant, I loved the brand from their couture, to their lip glosses. I kept thinking, how bad could it be? Perhaps I break out for 1 week at most?!?! And guess...

Skin Treatments with and without lasers

Many girls have thought of doing laser on their skins, especially those with unever skin due to acne, or marks like me. I have tried it once, and it definitely improved my skin, but I had so many questions before actually proceeding with it. So, I have broken down the lasers into two different types for you guys to understand a little more. Lasers Used to Treat Skin Issues If you choose to undergo some sort of laser treatment, you'll be glad to know that all of them are far less invasive and time consuming than surgical procedures. In fact, you can be in and out of most laser treatment procedures in less than 60 minutes and get back to regular activities...

GIVEAWAY : How to save my drying skin?

I recently came back from Maldives and due to the scorching sun, and drying sea water, my skin started peeling!!!! What more, after arriving back in KL, I had to host two events immediately, and had to put make-up which means more chemicals to my skin!!! I usually hydrate my skin with MORE than 8 glasses of waters a day, fruits, and moisturizer but it didn't help! How can I leave the Maldivian sun right? So, I found out how important having the right moisturiser is and the good thing is I found Cetaphil which is a skincare organisation that delivers quality skincare solutions. Cetaphil has over 60 years of proven success, and the brand is the recommended choice by dermatologists around...

The freedom of being hairless with out pain

The title says it all!!! Can you imagine a technology which allows you to remove hair from any parts of your body painlessly and the cost is not too much???? I found it recently at Ido's clinic, and I've only tried it once, but the effects are pretty amazing considering the fact that I am writing about it only after ONE try! How it works? Please shave before you head in for the koolite therapy They will apply a cold cream on the area that you want to remove the hair. For me, it's the armpits so I don't have to tweeze, wax or shave anymore 3. Then, they will use their Koolite machine to keep moving the cream up and down like this You can...
