Review – 3-Month Course on Vita Hair by Vita Green

 

Lately, I have been so obsessed with hair loss and grey hair. Both have seriously affecting my self-esteem, confidence and self image. I have never quite believed that one day I will have to deal with these problems.

I began to notice patchy hair loss about 3 years ago. I didn’t do much about it cos they were not very visibly obvious at that time. All I concerned was my grey hair due to heredity. Now the situation has became worse and I need a solution desperately.

Though I know there are many causes of hair loss such as hormones, genetic, pregnancy, childbirth, sickness, medication, scalp infection, skin disorder, stress or chemical. I believe my hair loss is likely due to aging, stress, frequent hair coloring and scalp infection. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, deficiencies in the blood can also take a heavy toll on hair’s health.

I spotted my first few strands of grey hair at the age of 16 and I didn’t think much back then. By the time I reached my 30s, I already have 20% of grey hair all over my head. It was until then I realized this heredity cum aging sign is going to be a long term issue for me. My mom and late maternal grandmother have whole head of white hair.

I know jolly well that I will eventually end up like them in a matter of time. All thanks to this “wonderful” hereditary. And now, I have almost 40% of grey hair all over my head. Now I have to regularly cover them up with at-home haircolor every three to five weeks.

2 Causes Behind Skin Dryness

P&G scientists discovered there are 2 causes behind skin dryness. Similarly to a leaky bucket, our skin constantly loses moisture to its surroundings, even if moisture is constantly being replenished. We can lose as much as 2 glasses of water per day by breathing and through evaporation from our skin. The second key cause of moisture loss is skin fatigue. Skin fatigue is the loss of skin energy, which leads to many unwanted changes in one’s skin, including skin losing its ability to hold on to moisture, causing the skin’s “leaky bucket” to become even more leaky.

However most hydrating products tend to focus on fixing the first issue. If the second issue isn’t addressed, skin will not only get drier but will become less responsive to hydrating ingredients. It is therefore essential to address both causes of skin moisture loss in order to keep skin hydrated and bouncy in a long term.

Retain Moisture Without The Use Of Preservatives With FANCL’s New Moisturizing Line

 

fancl moisturizing line

A few months ago, I have received a parcel from FANCL Singapore and it contains the Moisturizing Line products that include two Essences, two Emulsions, two Lotions, a Cream, a box of Mask and two supplements. Oops! Here’s another overdue post again. <grinning>

When it comes to skin care, keeping my skin well-hydrated is ultimately important. It may slow down the skin aging actually. When my skin is well-hydrated, it is more plump and resilient. Fine lines and wrinkles are less visible and my skin’s protective barrier function is healthy and strong. In fact, when my skin is dehydrated, it will tend to appear dull, uneven, dry, flaky, and even saggy. In fact, my skin turns oily when it is dehydrated too.

Despite the warm and humid climate we live in, my skin can get excessively dry due to air conditioning systems at work or even at home. Therefore, it is more than necessary to keep my skin moisturized and radiant.

fancl moisturizing line

FANCL, one of the leading skincare brands in Japan, introduced Moisturizing Line that helps awaken skin’s natural power to retain moisture without the use of preservatives. It contains beauty ingredients that support skin’s natural moisturizing function to fight against skin dullness, roughness and dryness.

Do you know preservatives can weaken skin’s barrier function? FANCL’s Mutenka only gives the skin what is truly needs and nothing else. And therefore all FANCL product contain no preservatives and potentially harmful additives, allowing only powerful beauty agents to actively enhance our skin’s natural beauty.

Moisturizing Line uses Purification Process, done through the power of Malvidin (extracted from Mallow and Blue Sweet Pea) to reactivate skin cells and ensure optimal moisturizing results. Malvidin helps to purify skin by removing skin damaging factors, revitalizing skin cells and restoring damaged cells.

With “Advanced Penetrating Nano Capsule Technology”, active beautifying ingredients (Raffinose and Fresh Royal Jelly Essence) are absorbed easily deep within skin layers, giving our skin the ability to remain supple and nourished.

STEP 1 – Moisturizing Lotion (I and II), retailing at S$34 for 30ml, is the first step that instantly moisturizes skin and improves moisture retention. It prepares the skin for the next skincare step for better penetrations. Available in 2 variations, Moisturizing Lotion I is for oily skin whilst Moisturizing Lotion II is for combination, normal and dry skin.
