Skin Care Favorites
Eyebags Patches with Gingko Biloba Extract
This can do miracles. I place the patches in my eyebags area then I sleep for 6-7 hours before I remove the patches. Voila! My dark circles and eye puffiness are gone!
This Eyebags Patches of Purederm has Gingko Biloba Extract and Phyto-Collagen. Gingko Biloba has anti-aging and antioxidant properties that can protect the skin from radicals. Phyto is another term for plant. Phyto Collagen is capable of repairing damaged skin and preventing wrinkles. I already wrote about this in my previous blog My 7 Beauty Essentials – PART 1 (read here…)

Purederm Peel-Off Mask with Cucumber Extract
This my most favorite of all!!! This is a deep cleansing gel with Cucumber Extract is to be applied in the face, avoiding eyes and lips, and then leave it for 15-20 minutes. When the Cucumber Gel is already dry you can peel it off.
Whenever I use this I can feel my skin became smoother! The stubborn dirt will stick into the gel and then removed when you peel it. *Important* Do not pull the mask off you face, just slowly peel the sides so it won’t damage your skin.
Cucumber Extract is not irritating to sensitive skin and it has anti-inflammatory properties. It contains a substance called Lutein that prevents skin discoloration caused by sun exposure. So, if you had been exposed to sun frequently it is advised to add cucumber solutions in your skin care to have a balanced skin color.

Prada Perfumed Body Cream
This smells so great! I usually put this after I shower. I apply a thin layer of Prada Cream Perfume in my neck near the ears, in my chest, in my nape, in my wrist, in the back of my elbow and in the back of my knee. I only apply once and it lasts for the whole day.
When I sweat or when the wind blows, I can smell the floral-woody scent of this creamy perfume.

NYX Soft Matter Lip Cream in “Buenos Aires”
This shade is in Light Peach color. I usually use this when I do subtle dark shade smokey-eyes. What I love in this NYX Lip Creme is that it give a totally Matte finish that I like, plus it doesn’t smudge!
MAKEUP ADVICE : Use light-shade lipstick to compliment dark shade eyeshadow. While dark-shade lipstick must be used for light shade or no eye makeup looks. This must be observed to maintain balance in the face.
Dark lips with dark eye makeup gives too much intensity and gives an impression of overly done makeup. Light lips with light eye makeup gives a pale and undone look.

H&M Aztec Shorts
Black and white combination of Aztec design can match and compliments any “plain” colored top like red, blue yellow and other colors.
FASHION ADVICE : It is important that we don’t match printed top with printed shorts or bottoms, because it looks overdone and over decorated. Choose only one printed clothing that you want to emphasize by partnering it with something plain.

Lemon Ginger Twinings Tea
Whenever I acquire wounds, I would drink ginger tea to fight infection and to hasten healing. Infected wounds will not heal. Ginger can reduce nausea and inflammation of muscles. If you are experiencing menstrual pain, ginger can relieve pain and helps relax the muscles. While if you frequently drink alcohol, taking ginger tea will help remove the harmful toxins in your liver.
What I love more about this tea is that it has Lemon!!!
Lemon can help reduce headache and fatigue. On stressful situations Lemon tea is highly recommended because it can easily calm the nerves. Lemon helps flush out of our body the unwanted toxins and excess mucus. It contains high amount Pectin Fiber that can help fight unnecessary food craving and will result to effective weight loss.
