Unveil My BEAUTY SECRETS For Great-Looking Skin

..

People who have seen and know me in person will frequently compliment my complexion and ask for my beauty tips on how I achieve it. Yeah you are right in a way, part of my good-looking skin is due to heredity. And the rest are due to ‘meticulous’ care and healthy lifestyle habits.

After constant persuasion from some readers, I decided to unveil the beauty secrets on how I upkeep my healthy looking skin. Frankly, I was rather reluctant to share my beauty secrets to everyone although I know very well I will have to do it now or later in a matter of time. You can say I’m boastful or selfish if you like. Hahahahaha!!!

Thanks Kiehl’s For All The Wonderful Gifts (Muacks!)

..

Recently, I’m extremely fortunate (one of the lucky 6 bloggers) to be invited to the Exclusive Kiehl’s Private Tour & Treat at their newest store @ Plaza Singapura. There are 2 bloggers on each private session.

To thank us for joining on the tour, Kiehl’s has generously given each blogger $200 worth of Kiehl’s products of our choice to bring home.

For the $200 worth of gifts, I have chosen ACAI Damage-Correcting Moisturizer, Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion and Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant Cream. On top of these, Kiehl’s has thrown in many samplings and an actual size of their NEWEST product – Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++ UVA. <grinnnnnnnnnns>

Incidentally, I received this Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++ UVA sunscreen at the right time. I’m almost finishing my last drop of Clarins sunscreen and am excited to embark on this newly launched sunscreen pretty soon.

To celebrate the launch of Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++ UVA, I was again invited to the Kiehl’s Ultra Light Brunch Party @ 20 March.

So happened I was at Taipei on 20th March, I’ve specially arranged to meet up the Kiehl’s representatives separately on 24th March instead (the day after I’ve arrived back from Taipei trip).

I was delighted to receive a goodie (tote) bag full of gifts from them again. In the tote bag I can find : 2 lovely T-shirts, a hat, many badges (to decorate the hat), Cradle To Cradle book, Notepad, Kiehl’s Press Release references, Lip Gloss, Nurturing Body Washing Cream, Sunflower Color Preserving Shampoo and Conditioner.

Kiehl’s has gone great lengths to make each and every blogger especially special. I especially like the exclusive tote bag, notepad and invitation card.

Thanks Kiehl’s for all the great gifts! You are great!

Treatment Review – Dermal Fillers For Nasiolabial Folds & Marionette Lines, And Botox For Face Slimming & Forehead

..

Three months ago, I have written an article on Facial Remodeling Workshop conducted by Dr Z and I’m glad I have been chosen as the winner blogger to win a FREE one-vial Juvederm (hyaluronic acid) filler facial contouring treatment.

During the earlier workshop, Dr Z performed on two patients to demonstrate the faster and convenient way to achieve a sharper nose, higher cheekbones and slim down the face using fillers and botox without going under the knife.

I’m always troubled with my nasiolabial folds and marionette lines, these aging signs have made me look 5 years older than I should. So after seeing the result of the two patients, I was somewhat convinced that he (Dr Z) can probably help to treat my aging problems and hence I decided to make a visit to his clinic two weeks ago.

After analysing my problems, Dr Z suggested I require 2 vials of fillers for my nasiolabial folds and marionette lines, and botox for my flabby jawline and forehead fine lines.

There are so many cosmetic fillers on the market today and the field develops so rapidly that it can get a bit confusing. So let us review some of the newer additions to the family.

Don’t overfeed your skin

A lot of people don’t know that you can also overfeed your skin. Looking back on the women I’ve met up to now, those with skin problems generally do just that: overfeed their skin. Their skin is in a state of skin obesity, as it were. Bombarded with so many different products, a person’s skin often launches an ugly protest. Noting this, the person thinks something must be done, and applies rich creams, further impairing the skin’s natural ability to clean itself.

Ask Shirleen A Question – AHA Products & Enlarged Pores

.

Reader’s Questions

HI SHIRLEEN !!! For all my life this is the first time I’m using a AHA product (TDF revitalising cleanser) and it works wonders. It’s a 4 percent glycolic based cleanser. Though it’s said that BHA (salicylic acid) is best for oily skin, but my skin can never take BHA it’s like kyrptonite to superman.

So i figured why not give AHA a shot! And i have never ever regretted it, it has been 4 days since i’ve incorporated this into my regimen. So far no breakouts, skin seems more refined. By the way i’m 18 and my skin is generally on the combination to oily side.

My question is, when can i start incorporating more AHA products, and what are the kinds of products i should be incorporating into my regimen? Or should i even be incorporating other AHA products, prior to the current AHA cleanser that i am using ?? And i really suffer from open pores(bad extractions done by beautician) on my cheeks, what products can i use to solve this problem?
