As the title speaks, I want to share with you my guide to healthy skin in 3 ways! I think I hardly shares anything like this before, so this would be a good chance for me to do so~
Honestly, this is the ultimately most important step ever! Our skin is always constantly exposed to dirt (environmental dirt as well) and sweat & sebum. All of these have to be removed through cleansing ourselves at least once or twice (if the weather is super-duper hot) for our skin to remain clean, breathable and bacteria-free!
<span>I’m very sure the brand, Dettol, is not a stranger to anyone. Positioning itself as a trusted antiseptics brand worldwide, it has branched out to not just your ordinary kitchen cleaning liquids or wet wipes or etc, but also comes in body wash.
Dettol had recently launched its latest range of body wash – Dettol Radiance, which introduces a unique deep-cleansing formulation that also nourishes and purifies.
Dettol Radiance is formulated with a unique blend of Vitamin B3 and C, which replenishes skin with an abundance of nutrients for optimum rejuvenation and purification. Vitamin B3 has been long regarded as the secret behind younger and firmer skin while Vitamin C is often regarded as the perfect antioxidant to ensure healthy, supple skin and of course, to defend any free radical. Together with Dettol’s renowned germ protection capabilities to deep cleanse and remove germs and impurities from within, this perfect harmony helps skin to reveal its inner radiance and maintains its healthy glow.
After using Dettol Radiance for the past one week, this body wash definitely doesn’t have that strong medical scent as its usual range, which I totally adore! If you’ve used Dettol products before, you’d know what kind of scents I’m talking about. It has a soothing floral scent that is not too over powdery and lingers for a while before it wears off. Goes on pretty smooth and it can be formed up for extra fun in the bathroom with the help on a forming puff. And the most important part, it doesn’t dry my skin unlike other bathe products! Thumbs up! Of course, use a moisturizer after bathe to lock all the goodness!
Dettol Radiance body wash<span> now available in 250ml, 625ml and 950ml, retailing from S$3.20 ~ S$10.90 and is now available at all leading hypermarkets, supermarkets and pharmacies.
Moisturize my skin after shower is my everyday must-do, no matter how tired am I. I’ve read from somewhere that showering with hot water is very damaging to our skin structure and is advise to bathe warm water towards cold (in the event of heavy rain/cold, I’d turn to warm water towards hot. I’m scare of cold~). And moisturize your skin immediately after towel-dry would enhance your skin to absorb it more effectively as the pores are still open. And by moisturizing your skin daily will keep your skin smooth and soft and radiant.
Today, I’m going to introduce my 3 moisturizers. Skin Inc Pure Onsen+ Body Dew, Johnson & Johnson baby lotion (Pink) and Kiehl’s Creme De Corps respectively.
<span>I’ve not started using the Kiehl’s Crème De Corps body lotion, therefore, can’t comment much of that as I was planning to used finish the Johnson & Johnson baby lotion before opening the Kiehl’s one.
And not just plainly apply moisturizer will keep your skin radiant. We still have to apply sunblock during the day time (think of it like your face). Our body also too, need protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. So, apply a layer of sunblock to exposed area before heading out!
Having plenty of rest and eating plenty of fruits/greens is important in this hectic lifestyle. Do you know that it’s important for us to have sufficient beauty sleep? The golden period for beauty sleep is between 10pm to 2am. During this period, our body is doing self-repair for the damages caused during the day time. (I know it’s impossible for most people to sleep at 10pm on Friday/Saturday night, but you got to give it a try! It feels good the next day when you wake up)
And finally, treat yourself or your skin to plenty of fruits and greens! Our body needs vitamins that fruits and greens give off. Also, try to have an Avocado each day as Avocado contains Vitamin B, K and E. Vitamin B is said to help body metabolism and maintain a healthy skin tone while K maintain bone density. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant. I know some people dislike the taste of eating Avocado. Make them into drinks instead! Simply cut out 1 whole avocado, 1 box of milk and 5 spoonsful of honey (depends on your liking) and blended it well. Drink it chill. It tastes awesome! Alternatively, if you find the first tip too heavy or milky, try using 1 whole avocado and 2 bottles of yakult and blended them together. It’s totally another different kind of taste. My boyfee who dislike avocado actually likes the yakult avocado when my mum blends it for him to try.
And also, in Singapore when the current weather is so bad, many people will tend to get heat-y (in Chinese we called it 发热气). Try to get some fruits that contain high water content such as watermelon, starfruits or Snow Pears (aka: Pyrus Nivalis).
And there you go. My 3 course meal for healthy skin! I hope the tips above have helped you in a way or another. If you’ve your way of 3 course meal, share them with me! I’d love to try out yours as well!
