Emergency Skincare Tricks for That Glow – Fast!
There are times when we need to look our best and glowy for an important date, meeting or group celebration in a short period of time. While our skin may not look it’s optimal sometimtes, here are my tips and tricks to get that radiance and luminou glow in the quickest time possible. 1. Start with a Clean Face 💁 I use the Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser, a nourishing cream cleanser infused with mineral-rich mud helps to purify and soften skin. The cream texture is soothing and gentle on tired skin, thanks to its enriching ingredients of rose flower oil, chamomile, and avocado oil that conditions and replenishes moisture. The light scent smells so calming as well. To use, dampen your face and apply a coin-sized amount of the cleanser to your skin. Massage the cleansing cream onto your skin in gentle circular motions. Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Follow with usual toner. pixi - Rose Cream Cleanser 2. Reduce puffiness 🙅 I either massage my skincare products with my hands into my skin in uplifting strokes or use my ReFa face roller to contour and reduce puffiness on my face. The platinum-coated multiangular facial roller helps to tighten and tone the look of my skin for a firmer, more contoured and rejuvenated appearance. To use, I firmly grip the thickest part of the handle, roll up and down from my collarbone to my breast, from the corners of my mouth to ears, from the corners of my mouth to the sides of my nose, from ymy temples to the top of your head, back and forth under your eyes, and along the jawline from chin to ears. The mini facial massage is ensures that my skincare products are fully absorbed and fully wakes up for skin. ReFa - Carat Ray Face 3. Vitamin C for an extra boost! 🤩 Before I apply my moisturizer and make-up, I add my secret weapon - The Pixi Vitamin-C Serum, a popular serum booster that sells out quickly. A brightening and antioxidant serum that provides a boost of immediate radiance, the serum is infused witht vitamin C and ferulic acid that are proven to reduce the effects of sun damage and free radicals, helping to improve skin tone and creating a smoother complexion. The serum is suitable for use daily, and 2 to 3 drops can be used before moisturizer. pearance of skin tone. I notice that my skin is more soothed and hydrated after use, thanks to its lightweight texture that feels wonderful on the skin. The minimal citrusy fragrance is not overpowering as well. pixi - Vitamin-C Serum
Facial Tool to Reduce Face Puffiness!
Navigating the world of at-home skin-care tools can be a tough task. A facial tool my not work the same for every skin type and every so often, a shiny new piece of technology may tempt you with its promises for giving you your “best skin” possible but at the same time, most of them come with a high price tag. One of the best at home products I like is the the suggestive-looking ReFa Carat Ray Face roller. I am prone to water retention and puffiness, especially in the mornings and roller really helps me to contour my face for a toner and tighter look. ReFa - Carat Ray Face Coated with platinum suitable for all skin types (even sensitive skin), the device is fitted with a solar panel on the body to generate a soothing microcurrent as well as two mid-size double drainage rollers – both replicating the deep kneading technique used by professional estheticians. For those missing the beauty salon appointments during current stay-at-home situation, this device will come in handy. The lightweight device helps to firm my skin’s appearance while reducing those pesky fine lines and morning puffiness. As I am a tense person by nature, more so during stressful work days, rolling the facial muscles twice a day helps to release tension as well as activate blood and lymph circulations for a tigher and toner contour. The key of success to this product is technique + patience. When used correctly according to given instructions, results will be more obvious. A detailed instruction manual on how to use this on your pretty face is included in the packaging as well as on website and YouTube. To use, grip the thicker part of the handle firmly without covering the solar panel with your hand. Roll in both directions along the lines of your face and décolletage, pulling up the areas where the skin is soft. Roll back and forth along the focus areas – mine are the jawline from chin to ears as well as over the smile lines. Once you understand the procedure, roll and repeat. Keep going and be patient to see notable results. I used the device diligiently twice a day, and it’s easy with its simple 10-minute routine. Although it is quite expensive (USD250 on ReFa website), the roller is still a pretty worthy investment, especially since there is a higher chance you can use this easily with zero set-up.

My pre makeup routine
This is my favourite based routine recently, because we need to wear a mask all the time now so I don't like too much makeup on my face, And now I’m going to share my little secret to you~ Skin is everything to me so I'll focus on my skincare and than foundation use. I use non- alcohol and non-perfumed baby wipes to clean over my face and help remove oil before I start makeup. Let’s start it pixi - Glow Tonic I’ve used the pixi glow tonic for a while now and I love how it wakes up my skin and refreshes it and now we’re ready to move to the next step Glossier. - The Super Duo The superglow vitamin C+ magnesium serum is my favorite product from glossier. Vitamin C is a antioxidant it could Prevent uv damage to the skin, inhibits melanin production, plays a light spot, brightens the effect, and can also help resist skin aging. the product gets a glowing and puffing up the skin without dullness BOBBI BROWN - BOBBI BROWN Hydrating Eye Cream The Bobbi brown hydrating eye cream that I’ve used for a long time, this is my #1 eye cream for my makeup skincare, it’s a light texture cream and easy to apply on under the eye area and avoid cracking any creases with foundation or concealer on. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Hydrating Oil I’m a big fan of using beauty oil it hydrates your face and makes your makeup last longer without patching it. another one of my favorite beauty oils is elcie “the glow enhancer” a dry face oil ReFa - S Carat Ray After I finish all my skincare my face will have some remaining oil to absorb. I’ll use a refa massage roller to roll up and lift my face immediately!!! And you don’t need to charge it so you can use anytime you want ⭐️SUQQU - NUDE WEAR LIQUID it’s a water based foundation, to me I think the water based foundation lasts longer than the oil based foundation and it won’t clog yourReFa - S Carat Ray pores. this foundation contains SPF 15 and an extremely light and comfortable liquid foundation that creates a veil over the skin with gentle lifting properties for a natural, dewy finish. SUQQU’s Nude Wear Liquid easily glides on and blends in to harmonise with the skin with no trace of itself - creating the illusion of bare skin’ that’s fresh, clean and almost undetectable.
My Secret To Clean Skin!
Step 1: Drink a glass of warm water with lemon A rich source of vitamin C, lemon contains immense health benefits ranging from its antibacterial properties to its immune boosting abilities. Lemon juice acts as a digestive agent and helps in cleansing the liver for better digestive health. I add two slices of fresh lemon to a cup of warm water in the morning for a detoxifying boost, and I continue to sip this mug throughout my morning. Step 2: Wash face with a gentle cleanser and cold water A clean face is as important in the day as it is in the evening. I use a gentle face cleanser, depending on my skin concerns at the moment. For combination skin, I recommend the Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its essential moisture. Unlike usual foaming cleansers, this cleanser formula is gel like and ensures that my skin is clean yet moisturized for the next step. Step 3: Tone and moisturize Toning the face after cleansing helps to minimize the appearance of pores, and also balances the skin's pH levels. This is an important step that I won’t ever miss. I like how my skin is purified and ready to absorb nutrients from any moisturizer that I apply on later. For moisturizers, my favorite is CLINIQUE - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ that feels rich yet silky smooth on my skin. Step 4: Depuff face with face roller This is my secret for a firmer and tighter looking face contour. After using toner and applying moisturizer to my cleansed skin, I use my ReFa - Carat Ray on my face for about 5 minutes. Massaging with a face roller aids to boost blood circulation to the face and neck area which helps to improve skin tone and texture over time. Check out my detailed review of the face roller in another post. Step 5: Apply sunscreen I NEVER skip sunscreen in my morning beauty routine, even if I am staying indoors all day. I switch between two brands - Murad - City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 / PA++++ and NNeutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Suncreen, SPF 45, which is very reasonably priced and available in most drugstores. I carefully apply a thin layer of sunscreen all over my moisturized face, not forgetting areas that are easy to miss, such as my chin, neck and ears.
Way before jade rollers, I was rolling my face with this Refa solar-powered microcurrent face roller. 🤖💖 It has since been retired but I took it out again after reading how there has been a considerable buzz 📣 around microcurrent in the beauty world recently. Apparently there has been a celebrity cult following and fans of the microcurrent facial include Madonna, Julianne Moore and Miranda Kerr. Microcurrent devices like this help to improve skin texture, boost collagen and elastin production and increase circulation. I did notice my skin being more toned during the period I was using it daily. But I grew fat and lazy and stopped rolling. 🐷 I loved my roller but it was a handful to lug around. ✈️ Maybe I should shop for a smaller one.
As if the armory of skincare products on the shelves isn’t enough to dazzle us and hurt our wallets, there’s also a wide array of beauty tools to add in our shopping carts. I have been coveting the suggestive-looking ReFa Carat Ray Face roller for years, and finally added it to my beauty shelf during the Black Friday sale last year. Was this pricey (USD250) purchase worth the investment? You bet. Coated with platinum suitable for all skin types (even sensitive skin), the device is fitted with a solar panel on the body to generate a soothing microcurrent as well as two mid-size double drainage rollers – both replicating the deep kneading technique used by professional estheticians. For those missing the beauty salon appointments during current stay-at-home situation, this device will come in handy. The lightweight device helps to firm my skin’s appearance while reducing those pesky fine lines and morning puffiness. As I am a tense person by nature, more so during stressful work days, rolling the facial muscles twice a day helps to release tension as well as activate blood and lymph circulations for a tigher and toner contour. The key of success to this product is technique + patience. When used correctly according to given instructions, results will be more obvious. A detailed instruction manual on how to use this on your pretty face is included in the packaging as well as on website and YouTube. This is the right time to listen to your mama to study the manual before use. Once you understand the procedure, roll and repeat. Keep going and be patient to see notable results. I used the device diligiently twice a day, and it’s easy with its simple 10-minute routine.

My essential friends : Refa vs TriPollar stop
TriPollar Stop⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ TRI POLLAR - STOP Facial Skin Renewal Device This revolutionary face tightening device combines two potent technologies( Radio Frequency and DMA Technology) to create an unrivalled anti-ageing device. Radio Frequency Heating – The radio frequency heats the skin, and stimulates the collagen and elastin fiber reproduction. This is a natural process where the body is reaching to the heat energy and self healing and cell activity is stimulated. It works to renew and regenerate the skin whilst reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It's non-invasive and anti-ageing, and defines and tones the skin. Also, it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Usually the result can been seen in 2-3 months. In order to help the treatment be effective you must use the Tripollar Stop gel, which is applied before each treatment. The gels makes skin smoother for the RF tip to glide on, improves the skin contact with the RF electrodes, and ensures the RF transmission and receiving by the polar electrodes is ideal. Tripollar Stop is FDA approved to be used by men and women, and on any skin color and tones. it's pretty safe and convenient to use by yourself. Although it was designed and launched as facial skin firming and wrinkle remover. But actually it can be used on other body parts as well, i like using it to treat the neck, cleavage, back of the hands and abdominal skin. In fact there is no prevention of using the Tripollar anti aging on any part of the body. The thickening of the collagen layer can be seen as saggy skin smoothed with firmer skin and less wrinkles. Both my mom and i really love it. ❤️ Refa Carat Face⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ReFa - Carat Ray Face This one stimulates and revives tired, stressed skin. it delivers indoor, solar-derived energy to boost circulation, enhancing firmness and improving tone. The arched handle allows for a comfortable grip which can give you an effortless and enjoyable experience. I'd like to use it while watch series. it never requires plugging in or battery replacement so i can bring it everywhere. My mom had the smaller refa and like how it performed. This bigger one is good for the jaw line, cheeks, forehead, neck and the temple. But it was a little big for the under eye area. You see immediate results if you do half the face for comparison. Recommend using this product at night or before go out for a date, my face gets flushes from increased blood flow after using. The differences between these two products are a lot, to summarize, Tripollar has the anti-aging effect while Refa doesn't have. Tripollar can give u a long time results and refa can give u a immediate result. Besides, Refa is more convenient to bring and use since it's waterproof and requires no plugging. So, choose one according to your needs. ;D

Looking Dull after Too Many Late Nights? Great Tips to Look Fresh and Glowy!
Every now and then, all of us have need to pull that all-nighter for that project deadline (or party) and end up sleeping poorly, or not at all. Most of the time, we wake up looking like one of the living dead, with dull and lacklustre skin, and dark eye circles and obvious fine lines. Here are some of my tips to treat my combination skin so that it looks refreshed and alive for any social activity. Wake Up Your Skin To give my face a lift and glow at the same time, I cleanse my face with a natural facial scrub with uplifting scents. I use ST. Ives - Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub to get rid of remaining gunk on my face and a quick polish. Washing with cold water aslo helps to constrict the blood vessels in my face and to reduce any redness from the lack of sleep. Light Up The Eyes People notice the eyes first, so I’ll give extra attention to ensure that my peepers look normal and fresh. Once my face is cleansed, I use simple cold eye masks using sliced fresh cucumbers or frozen spoons to deflate puff, sleepy eyes. I placed the sliced cucumbers on my eye lids for 10 to 15 minutes to reduce inflammation, lighten dark circles, and wake up tired eyes. Alternatively, I press the back of frozen spoons on my eye lids for the same benefits. If I am pressed for time, I use my palms to gently press against my eye area for a relaxing and gentle massage to get the blood circulation going. Lastly, I slather a trusy eye cream for additional depuff support. Before the Zoom call starts, I add a few drops of redness-reducing eye drops to look even fresher. Depuff with A Face Roller The suggestive-looking ReFa - Carat Ray Face has been my lifesaver for as long as I can remember now. Coated with platinum suitable for all skin types (even sensitive skin), the device is fitted with a solar panel on the body to generate a soothing microcurrent as well as two mid-size double drainage rollers – both replicating the deep kneading technique used by professional estheticians. The device helps to firm my dull skin’s appearance while reduce the pesky fine lines and morning puffiness in less than 5 minutes. I use this as a last step after my skincare routine, before adding sunscreen.
