Dry Lips or Chapped Lips?

Having chapped lips or dry lips? Chapped lips or dry lips can be different from minor chapped lips to inflamed lips (which we call Cheilitis). Cheilitis is an inflamed and serious crack condition on the lips which can form around the angles of the mouth or the surrounding of the mouths

Every woman dreamt to have a perfect, soft and smooth lip. Having serious crapped lips make us feel embarrassed when talking to people and hoping no one would notice it. Apart from that, we can’t apply any lipstick and lip-gloss we want as it will turn out flaky. Why do we have these kind problems? What caused it and How to treat it?

I use to have serious inflamed lips during my studies in University and it was the worst months for me. I try to avoid talking directly to my friends and didn’t dare to take picture as well. Went to several doctors for treatment and try several methods. I was desperate looking for solution and finally I found the suitable cream (Triderm Schering Plough cream) to treat my lips.

The doctor told me that my lips could be sensitive towards pesticides spray which was not clean properly when I’m taking my fruits and caused growth of fungus and infection. After apply the cream for 2 to 3 days on my outer lips, it started to heal up. I wouldn’t say this would work on everyone as there are many factors that causing clapped and inflamed lips.


· Insufficient vitamins such as vitamin B-2 (Riboflavin)

· Allergic sensitive to cosmetic products

· Excessive exposure to sunlight.
Treatment and Methods to keep your lips healthy and beautiful.
· For minor inflame lips: you can try to use traditional Chinese tea + salts. Make a very small cup of traditional Chinese tea and add in some salts to it. Use a cotton pad and apply it you lips before you sleeps. You might feel as bit stingy on your lips. The salts can help to reduce inflammation and prevent itchiness. In traditional Chinese medicine, tea can be used to reduce inflammation as well.

· Apply Treatment lip balm. I find Mentholatum therapy lipbalm and supersoft treatment lipbalm work well for me...it deeply moisture my lips and effectively relief my dry lips.

· Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables but avoid citrus fruits as it may lead to dry lips

Today Skin Whitening Trends

Today more and more people are moving towards skin whitening. Some even went for skin bleaching to reach the pale white skin. A lot of skincare brands such as loreal, estee lauder, SKII started to produce wide range of whitening product starting with whitening cleanser, whitening toner, whitening moisture and even whitening mask.

Is Whitening product suitable for all skin types and does it bring any side effect? The questions have been asked by most of us when buying a whitening product. Most of the whitening product would state “suitable for all skin type”. How true is this? In this article, I will go thru oily skin type.

Oily Skin type – Oily skin type are more prompt to have acne and pimples as they got clogs easily with the excessive oil. I’ve come across some salesperson telling me, even we have oily skin, we can still use whitening product as it helps to reduces redness and brighten up your skin. Happily I buy the product, but after a few days…I end up with more pimples popping up.

Question 1: Are the salesperson lying to us?

Answer: I’ve read several articles and forum, some people review that the whitening product they bought really did help them to reduce the uneven skin tone with no breakout even having oily skin. Therefore it could be due to the different brands we bought.

Question 2: Why do we have breakout after apply whitening product?

Answer: Some products might have active ingredients which not suitable for our skins and causes pimples to erupt. The best way to apply once you bought the whitening product is to apply on partial of your face for one week. If it doesn’t cause any breakout, then you can apply on the whole face.

Suggestion: It is suggested by skin expect, having oily skin, its better we use serum type of moisturizer instead of cream type. Brands that having whitening serum is Estee Lauder Advanced night repair whitening serum, Clinique Skin tone Corrector, Kose Shirosumi Whitening serum.

You don’t have to be really white to look beautiful, having a healthy skin can make you more radiant and shine ~~

Dalacin C contain active ingredient clindamycin hydrochloride which is an antibiotic medicine. I’m not sure whether anyone of you heard about this cleanser but it has been with me for four years when I fighting over my acnes. I’ve severe acnes problems in my high school and that time I didn’t know anything about skin care. Some of relatives or friends saw my acnes problem introduce a few products and ask me to go for dermatologist, but it didn’t help much.

FINALLY one of my friends introduced me a product name ESKINOL. I heard about the product long time ago but never try it out. WHY? Well first…it’s because the pricing of this product is really cheap costing only RM 7 225ml (which make you think that this must some sort of lousy product) and second it’s only selling at some local old cheap drugstore. So finally I give it a try. I went to the pharmancy to buy one bottle and mixed it with Dalacin C..Surprisingly this product really work well for me…I never have any severe acne since I started using it and it has become one of my MUST-HAVE item. Now I use it as toner and only when I have pimples. It helps to reduce the redness and clear out the pimples in a very short time.

There are 6 type of ESKINOL and all have different roles:

1) Papaya Naturals – enriched with natural skin lightening properties of real papaya and thoroughly removes dirt and excess oil.

2) Avocado Naturals – enriched with vitamins A and E which help to maintain skins moisture

3) Lemon - enriched with lemon essence oil which remove unwanted dirt and oil.

4) Cucumber Naturals – contain real cucumber ingredients for a naturally cool and refreshed skin

5) Calamansi - Helps to whiten skin and prevent pimples

6) Classic Whitening – effectively deep cleanses your skin to whiten your skins.

In order for it to be really effective, REMEMBER to mixed the product with Dalacin C which can be bought at any pharmacy store. This product original doesn’t have any Dalacin C in it. 1 bottle of 225ml Eskinol can mix with 300mgs Dalacin C.

Method of using it:

1) Apply it on a cotton pad and wipe on the affect area only. Used it after cleaning your face. Suggested not to apply anything after applying it.

2) Used it on during day and night if the acnes or pimples are severe. Reduce using after pimples started to clear out.

Get Rid of Blackhead

Most of us which includes men are having blackhead problem nowadays especially at the nose area and we tend to ignore it thinking no one would notice it from far away. Imaging that on a perfect romantic date, everything went well, you and your date are about to kiss.

Suddenly she or he stop because they can’t help noticing the “obvious” blackhead on your nose and feel gross about it. NOW at this moment, you will definitely feel embarrass and blame yourself for not taking these blackhead seriously.

How does blackhead form? Well blackhead is a plug of sebum will clog at our skin pores and turn black when oxidized after leaving for quite some times. After a long period of time, blackhead can actually lead to pimples growth. According to the skin expert, blackhead is the first stage of acne/pimples forming before the bacteria occupy the pores of our skin. Therefore it’s important to clean out /remove out the blackhead before they develop to pimples. Some people think those blackheads are more common for those with oily skin. It’s true..But from my opinion, for the blackheads that grow on oily skin are sometimes easier to remove compare to dry skin. I myself is oily and combination skin. It’s easy for me to remove my blackheads that grow on my nose by simply using blackhead extractor. My sister even question me a lot of times asking me how I remove my blackhead. My husband has dry skin and he has a LOTS of blackhead on his nose and it’s very hard to remove even with extractor.

Below are a few methods that can be used to remove the blackhead on nose:

1) Remove the blackhead using a blackhead extractor. It’s encourage remove the blackhead after taking your warm bath or place slightly warm towel on your nose for approximately 5 – 10 min to soften the blackheads. DO NOT uses your hand directly to extract out the blackhead as it can cause infection and do remember to clean and disinfect your extractor after using.

2) Using Egg White as a natural ingredient. Some people can’t stand the smell of the egg white. You can try to add some honey and a bit of lemon juice to egg white that has been beaten foamy. Apply the ingredient to a small piece of normal oil control film paper and softly place the paper on your nose and press a little. After that wait for it to dry and slightly pull the paper from bottom up. Use both of your hand to hold each side of the paper while removing. Do this once a week.

Currently we have a lot of skin care product in market which can help to control or prevent blackhead or whitehead. Here’s a list of the suggested product that be used :

a) Shiseido The Skincare Purifying Mask - it’s a rise off facial mask that helps to absorb sebum and impurities while minimizing pores.

b) Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliator Cream – this exfoliator gently lifts of dead cells and deeply cleanses pores. It’s suitable for sensitive skin as well.

c) Clinique Pore Minimizer Refining Serum – it keeps pores clears of dead skin cells and help to tighten pore walls.

When buying a makeup brush sets, it is important to feel the quality of the fibres the brushes are make of..especially those who have sensitive skins..There are many types of makeup brush and each of them having different functionality. Most of us don't have any idea which brush to use when it came to applying foundation, eye shadow, contouring..etc...Hope the information below help you all find the right brush during Makeup.

From here, i'll go one by one on what is the function of each different brush.
1) In order to get a natural flawless look and no heavy weight of the foundation on your skin, it is recommended to use a foundation brush. There are two types of foundation brush ( Brush for liquid form and Brush for Powder form). To apply liquid type of foundation, choose the brush which have more bristle and compact where for power type of foundation, you can choose brush which are soft and loose. This brush can also be used for blusher brush.

6) After applying all the foundation and eyeshadows, sometimes we have fallen eyeshadow on our face, this is when we use the fan brush. Fan brush takes off or dust off fallen eyeshadow from our face.
