I guess I am lucky that I can use any beauty products for the 3 most important steps in the regime -cleanse, tone and moisturise.
However, let me share some beauty tips for people on the go.
Cleanse (to clean the face)- try BodyShop, it's good
Toner (to tighten)- I use Nivea, very refreshing and smells good
Moisturise (to nourish) - a quick pick me up in the morning, if you want something creamy [for the dry skin], go for L'oreal, if lazy like me, use air paip pun boleh jalan :). Air wudhu' much better.. heheh
If you wear make up, please.. do not forget to clean your face with the 3 steps regime. Or else, you will wake up the next day in the morning, and you will look like some monster went berserk the night before. If you are like me, do not wear make up, then it save a lot of trouble.. heheh :). Dh must be thanking his lucky stars since I am not so into make up.
If you tend to have combination skin like me, thank your lucky star. I once went to a dermatologist and the doctor said, people who have oily skin tends to look much younger than their age.. hihi
Don't be tempted to buy products that is all glitzy and expensive. Ask for a sample first before buying any products over the skin care counters. FYI, I never buy expensive skincare products.
I once had a major breakout, which my dermatologist said, jerawat air.. which pimples tends to break out on your face all at once. And every person will have to endure this once in a lifetime. Thank God I endured mine after my SPM. My mom freaked out when she saw how those jerawat air break out all over my T-zone and arranged for appointment with the skin specialist. This is a NATIONAL EMERGENCY! Mind you, if you have major breakouts, do not be cheated by off the counter products. Go straight away to your nearest skin specialist. Even though it DOES cost a lot, bear in mind, for each visit, the bill will reduce. My mom was so excited to use my cleansing lotion, since first use already makes the skin much MORE softer and you don't feel any pimples at all.
Don't forget to exfoliate your skin once a week with face scrub, and tend to use mask every 2 weeks. Don't be like me, so lazy to stick to a beauty regime.
If you want my beauty advice, I would go for the simpler one. Air wudhu' and smile a lot. I am not much into my beauty regime, so if people ask for secrets, every time you wudhu', wudhu' with hati yang bersih and niat dalam hati muka pun bersih :)
People tend to look weird when I said I do not stick to a good regime. Heh, my parents have flawless skins and look really young, so the genetics tend to inherit to all of their daughters.. hehehe
And you men, do not forget to clean your face also and main bantai skincare products. You guys should have crash course on how to maintain a good regime for skincare.. :P
