Tricks Look Prettier

1. Always choose a facial cleanser and body foams which provide pH balanced. Using stronger soap may wash away the natural moisture of your skin leaving it dry and flaky. I used to wash my face with whitening soap before and it just produced fine lines as I age. So I switched to facial cleanser which is “pH neutral” and found out it is good for my skin. I do not experience breakouts anymore during periods and I could really feel the softness of my skin after washing.
2. Keep it a habit to use moisturizer after washing your face or after taking a bath. My ideal facial moisturizer is those products which contain vitamin E and has collagen to avoid wrinkles. I put a minimal amount of moisturizer all over my face and then apply more on areas like the sides of my eyes where fine lines are visible.
3. Make sure that you also moisturize your body with creamy lotion. Personally, I do not mind if my body lotion does not contain whitening ingredient as long as it is creamy and smells so good. I do not prefer using whitening lotion because it can make my skin dry and dull. But I am in love with the baby lotion that smells good and creamy to my skin.

At bedtime, I apply petroleum jelly all over my legs and toes. I find it very sticky on my skin but it feels so soft after a hot shower.

Change your lifestyle.
1. If you really want to look prettier and 10 years younger than your age you need to change your lifestyle. As I age, I avoid eating too much meat, I learned to reverse my taste buds as I do not want to grow big. Being fat and heavy makes you look older. So keep that ideal weight to look young and healthy.
2. Increase your fruits and vegetable consumption. Every meal, I always include fruit like banana in my diet. I also consider preparing a vegetable menu, my favorite is ampalaya omelet or bitter gourd mixed with scrambled egg for breakfast. For lunch, I like chayote with chicken strips and fish soup with malunggay for dinner.

Choose a Night Cream

Selecting the right product that suits your skin tone is crucial. Below are a few selection tips:

  • When choosing a night cream for yourself, ensure that the cream is not too thick.
  • A thick nighttime cream clogs your skin pores. It becomes difficult for your skin to breathe.
  • Whenever you choose a night cream, ensure it is fragrance-free and is also hypoallergenic

How to Use

  • Cleanse your face properly before you applying.
  • Now, take a pea-sized amount of the cream and make dots all over the face using a finger.
  • Next, blend the cream gently. Give your face a massage so the skin can absorb the cream properly.

Don’t apply it on eyelids or else it can cause burning or irritation in eyes.

Get Glowing Hands

  • Just as our face needs proper cleaning and scrubbing, our hands too need proper care every day. Dead skin cells camouflage the natural skin tone of hands and need a regular scrubbing routine to get rid of these dead cells. A mild cleanser or a body wash is an excellent product to rub the skin while bathing. Once the hands are cleaned off the superior dirt, make sure to scrub it with either a homemade preparation or a market bought scrub. Do this at least thrice a week to reveal soft and glowing hands.
  • Using ordinary soap laden with harsh chemicals to wash hands is not sufficient. Regular washing with harsh chemicals may strip of the hands of its natural oil content. Instead, opt for a mild hand cleanser that cleans gently without making your hands dry.
  • Using a fairness pack on hands would yield soft and lightened hand complexion. Fairness packs can be made easily with ingredients available at home.
  • Moisturising is an important aspect of skincare. Dry hands hamper the complexion of the skin. Make sure your hands are always moisturized with a mild moisturizer every night before retiring to the bed.
  • Sunscreen is as important to the hands as it is to the face. Use a sunscreen with SPF 15 or more on the hands. This will retain the skin tone of your hands and would not cause them to burn in the sun.
  • Waxing is a great way to remove the accumulated dead skin on the hands. It not only removed unwanted hair but also reveals a fresher skin tone. Always opt for mild waxing ingredients such as wax strips treated with Aloe Vera or sugar and honey wax. Though hair removal creams also work well, they may darken the skin with prolonged use.
  • Like it is important to remove makeup from the face, it is imperative to remove makeup from the hands too. Use a mild makeup removing cream or baby oil to remove any traces of foundation before hitting the sack.
