Glowing Skin 容光煥發的皮膚


, , , ,

Having a glowing and radiant skin is the start of this fall’s make up trend. Let’s get glowing!

1. Prep work

Exfoliate your skin on a regular basis is key to get rid of dull skin. Make sure you find an exfoliant that suits your skin type. Many people’s skin gets irritated and sensitive when they exfoliate. But don’t be scared to exfoliate, you just need to find the right product.

Currently I am using Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant and Guinot’s Biological Peeling Radiance Gel. I have sensitive and acne prone skin and these two products do not irritate my skin. The Daily Microfoliant kills acne causing bacteria and also brightens dark spots. Guinot’s Radiance Gel is very gentle and it gives my skin a nice glow which I used to see when I was in my 20s.

You may also use facial masks to rejuvenate your skin to have a nice healthy glow. One of my girlfriends highly recommends Fresh’s Rose Face Mask. She said that it’s cost effective and it gives you a radiant and supple skin.

2. Base Make up

If you don’t have time to wait for a natural glow it’s okay. You can use BB cream, tinted moisturizer or you can mix your foundation with moisturizer to have a nice sheer make up.

If you really want to have high voltage glow, try bronzers and illuminizers. I’ve told you about Tarte’s Smooth Operator. It’s a really nice illuminator that gives you a natural glow. You can also use your bronzers and highlights to accent your cheekbones, nose and forehead. Benefits has a duo highlighter and bronzer which you can use separately or blend them together for a nice sheen.

1. 準備工作

定期去角質是擺脫肌膚暗沉的關鍵。確保你找到一個適合你的皮膚類型的去角質。很多人去角質皮膚會變得敏感,往往是因為去角質產品的關係。不過不要因為這樣就不去角質喔。 只要找到溫和的產品就okay啦!

目前我使用的是Dermalogica的Daily Microfoliant和Guinot的Biological Peeling Radiance Gel去角質產品。我有敏感,易生痘痘的皮膚,這兩種產品並不會刺激我的皮膚。Daily Microfoliant可以殺死導致痘痘的細菌和淨白黑色素。Biological Peeling Radiance Gel很溫和而且讓我重新找回我20多歲時的皮膚,就是洗完臉會有亮亮的反光不是油喔。

您也可以使用面膜來煥膚讓你的皮膚有一個很好的健康的光澤。我的好友強力推薦Fresh Rose Face Mask。她說,這是符合成本效益的面膜哦,給你一個容光煥發,水嫩的肌膚。

2. 底妝

如果你不想等待你的自然美。您可以使像BB霜, 潤色乳液或混合粉底跟乳液來做一個自然的透光打底。

如果你真的想有高伏特的閃亮亮,可以嘗試古銅亮粉和光感亮粉。我之前介紹過TARTE的Smooth Operator,這真是一個很好的光感亮粉液,讓你有自然的光澤。您也可以使用亮粉和古銅亮粉刷在顴骨,鼻子和前額。Benefit有個打亮加古銅亮粉的組合。



Sexy Six Summer Slim Down 六分鐘瘦一身


I am a big fan of short and effective workouts so I have gotta share this 6-minute workout with you. This is a workout by Chris Powell, the trainer for the Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition.

“Sexy Six Summer Slim Down” exercises”

We start with this one because it truly works out every muscle in your body.
Start in a standing position. Put your hands on the ground. Kick your feet back in to a push up position. Do a push up, jump your feet forward and jump up and clap.
* Works out every muscle in your body!

Mountain climber
Start in a push up position. Raise your knee up to your chest so it looks like you are climbing. In one quick movement, jump your feet and switch feet. It’s an isometric hold.
* Works out your core, legs and gives a big cardiovascular response.

***** Starting from here all exercises will use the one gallon jugs. Using jugs at home is a great way to get eight pounds of weight easily for a work out without having to buy weights. Just take a jug and fill them with water.  And if you want, go to the hardware store and get silicone gel so that you can properly seal the jugs.

Thrusters (use a dining room chair)
Start in a standing position holding the jugs resting on your shoulders. Sit down in the chair and then stand up and put your arms up with the jugs overhead.
* Works out your butt, thighs, and your core for midline stability.

Back lunge with twist
Start in standing position with feet together and one jug at your chest.  Extend the jug out in front of you and then step back with one leg about 3 feet and lower the leg to the ground. Holding jug in front, rotate the side 90 degrees.
* Works your butt and thighs and also your core when rotating.

Step up with curl  (use a small step stool)
For this you can use any little stool you have in your house.
From the floor, step up on the stool and once in a standing position, do a bicep curl.
* Works your butt, thighs and bicep.

Squat clean
This is a big explosive move. Start by holding the jugs down to your side. Gently dip down and as you jump, the jugs rise to your shoulders using your biceps.
* Works your butts, thighs, biceps and back.

Turn your Head Bag 回頭包


Yesterday I saw a handbag that totally caught my eyes and made my head turned! I was acting like some dude who can’t take his eyes off of a pretty girl.

The bag has a simple and yet eye-catching presence because of its colour and shape. I saw it from far away and I kept staring at it until I saw a small gold engraved Celine logo.

It turned out the bag was from Celine’s spring/summer 2010 collection. Oh I love Celine bags…

Which bag would make your head turn?

I saw the orange one in person. Loves it!
