After-party Skin Rescue

December 26, 2007

Hi all, I’m sure the party season has left you with hangovers, stained clothes and pretty tired / dull skin! Here’s a little something you can do at home you can do to revive and rejuvenate your skin.1. Drink loads of water and take your multivitamins! Beauty starts from within, and vitamins and Omega-3 oils are vital for your skin to look its best.2. A hydrating mask is a must! Alcohol sucks up all your water and dries you up like a grape, leaving you dehydrated, like a raisin. I swear by my Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask, and SkinCeuticals B5 Hydrating Mask. A hydrating mask will plump up your skin’s lost moisture levels and make our skin glow and look better instantly.3. Do get a body scrub and moisturize yourself well. I love Malin+Goetz Peppermint Body Scrub as the minty feeling of the scrub leaves your skin cool and feeling minty. This instantly perks you up and makes you feel fresh! Of course, moisturizer is always a necessity when you’ve scrubed your skin clean of the dead skin cells. I hope all of you have enjoyed our holidays, and are still feeling the festive spirit. This is the season to reflect on the year that has passed us by, to give and to receive, and to celebrate Christmas with knowing the true meaning behind it. Here’s to wishing all of you a very Happy New Year as well. xoxo 


Malin+Goetz Peppermint Body Scrub

November 15, 2007


I love the great refreshing smell of this body scrub, and even though the beads are a little rough, it’s still smooth enough to avoid the dreaded scratching that would cause redness and dryness. After washing off this scrub which I use with minimal water, it leaves the body feeling very cool and has a fantastic minty feel on the skin. One scrub, and it removes the dead skin cells that build up after time, and leaves my skin smooth, glowy and healthy. But always remember to moisturize with a moisturizer after using any body scrubs. I love Kiehl’s Creme de Corps, and shall mention that another time.


Malin+Goetz Jojoba Face Scrub

September 22, 2007


I love face scrubs. My Laura Mercier face scrub is still with my best friend, who has not mailed me all my skincare products yet..but more on that next time. I decided that since I can’t use my Dermalogica Daily Microfoilant in the army, I needed a face scrub that would do what it does effectively and quickly. In came this jojoba face scrub. It’s got cilantro with amino acids, and this gives a hydrating exfoliation, while maintaining a pH balance. Jojoba meal and polyethylene beads are what scrubs the dead skin cells away. Also, it stimulates cell renewal and soothes the skin. It rinses off quickly to reveal smooth, even skin that looks radiant. The jojoba meal also helps to nourish the skin and reduces irritation. It’s super mild, and even though they say that it should be used 2-3 times a week, a daily facial scrub would be ok. Note: as long as you don’t scrub your skin for a prolonged period of time, chances of over-exfoliation is pretty much lessened. Just remember to focus on your clogged pores areas – i.e. your nose, chin and forehead. Remember to rinse properly and moisturize after that.


A peek into my life

August 21, 2007

A little while back, a friend asked me to do this little questionaire. Just for my darling readers, I shall.

Describe your style. Sleek, modern and edgy.
Who rules in your closet? Calvin Klein – timeless pieces that one can wear all year round.
What’s in your bag? iPod, Prada coin case, Prada Lizard Skin wallet, Hermes Agenda, cellphone, dVb sunglasses.
Best bargain? Pair of Pierre Hardy calfskin leather boots.
Good-luck charms? Hermes leather/palladium ring – been wearing it everyday since I bought it.
Whose closet would you like to raid? Jude Law and David Beckham.
Signature scent Dior Higher Energy
What are you wearing now? Marc by Marc Jacobs cream T-shirt with ties, black denim skinny jeans by Miu Miu and Pierre Hardy boots.
First big fashion purchase? Violet Burberry trenchcoat
Signature accessory Hermes enamel/palladium clic clac bracelet, leather watch and Hermes ring, dVb sunglasses

Bag pick of the year Prada Jacquard Logo bag, Balenciaga Extra Courier, YSL Croc embossed Downtown/Tribute (for the ladies), Hermes lindy (ladies!), Valentino pleated leather bag in red (ladies!)

Product you can’t live without Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, Malin+Goetz Vitamin E Oil-free Moisturizer, sunscreen.

Summer signature outfit? I love wearing those city shorts (shorts that are made of formal trousers material) with cuffs, black patent sandals and a simple, one-coloured T-shirt.

Fall/Winter signature outfit? Bomber jacket with straight cut jeans or a trench coat with skinny jeans.

Most coveted labels Lanvin, Hermes, Prada.

Basically, I don’t like to wear clothes that are too loud or are too in-your-face. The occasional loud tees are alright, but I only limit it to clubbing nights-out. Clothes that spell out the designer name is just too flashy – something that I dislike. Accessories pull any look together, but as a rule of thumb, keep it simple. Sunglasses also add to any outfit – aviators are always in style, oversized shades glam it up, and, retro visors bring back some fun from the 80s too. For shoes, I’ve got a nice collection of different colours and styles. Flip flops are casual, but looks great with jeans. I love boots worn with jeans or even formal trousers, and mocassins or boat shoes look fabulous with both jeans/trousers or shorts. It’s a pity that Singapore doesn’t have 4 seasons, and now that I’m stuck here for 2 years, all my jackets are going to be retired into the closet. Jackets are so great ‘cos you can wear a vintage T-shirt underneath, but still look sharp with the jacket over the tee.
