[Treatment] Your Hair but Better - Review: TK TrichoKare Advanced Scalp Detox & Care Treatment

Self-love has been a great journey for me and self-love is intentional. Over the past few years, I learned that I feel the most beautiful when I’m taking care of myself, mentally and physically. Ever since I started university, I developed an unhealthy habit of packing my schedule with things to do and sometimes not treating myself well. This basically spells out the fact that while everything else is important, I became the last priority in my life, and that fact has to change.

So… the star of this first month in 2020 will be on the hair and scalp! You may be thinking, since when was scalp care rocket science? Hair washing does the trick! Truth be told, there is much more to know and while it is the last thing we may think about, we really should think about it more. Aside from our regular haircare at home, we still need an intensive detox monthly to maintain a healthy scalp. I haven't bleached or coloured my hair for about a year (though I'm honestly feeling an intense urge to this year *cry laughs*), so let's say I've saved my hair from chemicals for a while now. TK Trichokare generously reached out to me to help kickstart my year with their advanced scalp detox and care treatment!

3 Reasons to Love Laneige

It is a well-known fact that Koreans take their beauty products very seriously. Just one a look at the flawless complexions of Song Hye Kyo and Lee Sung Kyung would make anyone excited to try out the brands they swear by. When I was in Korea, I saw so many women with amazing porcelain skin, and some of them were already in their fifties!

Western beauty ideals have always been fighting, eradicating and concealing. While Eastern beauty ideals called for rejuvenating, replenishing and enhancing. The latter is the one that I have always resonated more with as I would rather spend more on skincare than makeup to cover up.

Today, I will be partnering with SEPHORA® to bring you Asia’s No.1 skincare brand endeared endlessly by Asian women. Everyone has been constantly raving about LANEIGE products and now I finally know why.

[Skincare] Skin SOS - Review: BeautyKeeper Taiwan Beauty Products

Being in the last year of my teens, I've grown to understand the importance of maintaining my skin now rather than restoring it to its youthful state when I get older. I've been desperately trying to salvage my skin's condition after my big A's, but my current work environment isn't exactly helping with cold air blasting at my skin for 9 hours a day. I have combination skin and finding effective skincare products hasn't been easy for me, but I would've to say these products from Beauty Keeper really worked wonders on me.

[Treatment] Infini Fractional Radiofrequency for Depressed Acne Scars in Singapore (The Clifford Clinic)

Acne scars - they tell a story of the body's amazing ability to repair itself, and yet how our repair mechanism is not perfect. 
They have been with me for 6 long years and have never left since.

[Skincare] Natural Skincare on the Budget - Review: Sukin Organics

Sukin Organics, an Australian natural skin care brand that produces cruelty-free and carbon-neutral personal care products. More importantly, there isn't a hefty price tag attached to these product as most natural skincare brands. I've been using these for at least 6 months now, so I've taken time to make the decision that I really adore it to recommend.

[Makeup] Covering Depressed Scars With Makeup (WITHOUT CONCEALER)

Hey friends! How have all of you been? Do you also have pitted scarring? Hiding pitted acne scars can be so frustrating, why does it seems like the more makeup you apply, the more they show. While you work on treating the depressed acne scars, such as icepick, boxcar, rolling, or other pitted scars, there is a way to cover them up.

I know how much pitted scarring suck.

There are some days we feel a little more insecure. Society has once and again emphasized appearance as a valuable asset - its not your mind, nor your social skills, nor your intelligence. Stop pointing out all the flaws when you scrutinize your face up close in the mirror. Start liking who you see, and change the way you look at yourself. It is important not to stay around people who point out your flaws and constantly tries to put you down. 

[Treatment] Depressed Acne Scars After Dermarolling (at home)

You're not the only one. Acne and the scars that they leave behind makes people self-conscious.

Beauty is pain. 
Enter the prickly world. Tell me, how you tried or heard of this contraption? The dermaroller is a simple hand-held cylinder studded with microneedles ~0.1 mm in diameter and varying lengths of 0.25 - 2 mm. They have been receiving quite a bit of press since many Chinese factories had made it available to the masses. They are everywhere, a simple search on the net will bring you thousands of products and brands. While I leave it to your own discretion on the purchase, it is suggested to get needles made of surgical steel and avoid the 540-needle roller. The former will ensure that needles are non-allergenic to the human tissue while some sources have found that the 540-needles are not real, but stamped-out knifes.
