A fresh start
HAVE you ever met a woman who is always looking fresh and ready to take on the day? Have you always wondered how she remains cheerful, energetic and always looking her best?
You would be surprised that your moods and energy levels all depends on how you start the day. You too can be equally lively, chirpy and active just by tweaking your morning routine.
Cleanse, tone and moisturise
This three-step beauty regime can help prevent breakouts and keep premature ageing at bay but it is first important to find skincare products that suit your skin.
Depending on your skin needs, take the time to find the right cleansers, toners and moisturisers that are formulated to treat sensitive skin, nonallergenic, provide adequate moisturisation or even sun protection.
Treating hands and feet right
Major problems associated with hands and feet are dryness and roughness, often due to them being overworked and overexposed to harmful UV rays from the sun. Lotions and moisturisers are important to avoid discoloration, peeling skin and dark spots.
Malaysia’s heat and humidity can also cause further problems such as fungal infections, blisters, psoriasis and smelly feet. Be sure to also put scented powder on your feet to absorb excess moisture and manage odour.
Wear the right clothes Synthetic fabrics have the tendency to cause itching and discomfort on the skin as it restricts fresh air from circulating near your skin and thus making your skin sweat and feeling sticky.
Always choose fabrics such as cotton to allow your skin to breathe. If you work in an airconditioned office and constantly feel cold, another way to stay fresh is to layer your clothes.
You can wear a thinner blouse when you head out for lunch and have a cardigan or blazer in the office to keep you warm while at work.
