KOREAN SKINCARE TIPS

KOREAN SKINCARE TIPS

Koreans are known for their beautiful skin and flawless skin right?  Usually Koreans have dry skin due to their weather. In Malaysia, our weather is hot and humid. Most people would find that our makeup will melt after few hours unless one is using a very good primer. I find that Malaysian tend to have combination skin due to this kind of weather we have.


Recently in December, my skin was in a bad condition. I have combination skin but with peeling skin and also pimples popping out. Yes, even people with oily skin can have skin peeling from the mouth area. The whitish peeling skin is actually the dead cells caused by not having enough moisture and it does not mean that you do not have enough oil on your skin. Oil can provide temporary relief but the dead skin will return again and I found out the reason.


It was really troublesome having to ‘fix’ my skin troubles one by one again. I guess it is because my age is creeping on me that my skin has actually turned from oily to dry now. Still the acne problem would appear if I don’t take care of it. I can’t use too many skincare product even when my skin is dry as I would definitely breakout from it. Then, I saw this beauty method that I have being doing it wrongly and no wonder my skin is dry!


1. Do not apply the soap/ facial gel/ facial foam on the face directly. Always foam them up first even when there isn’t any foam before using applying them on the face.


2. Wash the face gently and then apply moisturizer directly on the skin after cleansing. Just pat the face with hands if you feel that is too wet. There is no need of using facial cloth to dry the skin.


3. Apply moisturizer within one minute or else your face would already have dead skin cells.


Even people with combination skin+ acne prone skin can develop dead skin cells. These dead skin cells cause the skin to be dull and rough. So, make sure to apply moisturizer when the skin is wet. There is no need for skin cloth. I find that this method really turn my peeling skin into normal! =) I can already feel the difference after three days but results is more visible after 2 weeks into the method. My skin has turn from dry into normal and it had save me from doing more laundry. Who wants to do more laundry right?


I guess it was also the combination of using Zamian mask and Dr.Jart booster that my skin is sure more hydrated now. I am also using mask on every alternate days. I heard Koreans use sheet masks every night. I will be so broke to use sheet masks every night since the cheapest is also RM3 and RM3x30 will cause RM90 per month just for mask alone????? Other than that, there isn’t any change to my diet.


Looking after the skin is sure not easy but everyone can do it.

Ps: Don't use this method if you are using acne/pimples cream since those need to be applied on dry face.  This method is more recommended for those with dry skin.


The skincare tips is from watching the Korean beauty channel and it is not all mine.  The opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

FOOD REVIEW ON TAKO TAO-UNAGI TAKOYAKI


Tako Tao
Location: Lower Ground Floor, Jusco Mid Valley Megamall, Lingkaran Syed Putra, Kuala Lumpur, Seputeh, 59200,Kuala Lumpur




Unagi Takoyaki (Japanese Snack)

The Tako stall is actually full with people during weekends and so I usually avoided it when there are too many people. Well, I don’t like to queue and wait 1hour for my food even if it is just snack. It happens to be quite empty and so I decided to buy it. I bought Unagi tako which is more expensive than the octopus, prawn, chicken and cheese. It is not the best but I think it is affordable for the taste it offered. It is quite tasty and warm because mine was freshly made as it is not the usual takoyaki people will order.



Rm5.30 for 3 Takoyaki in a box. You need to make payment at one of the Jusco counter which is quite a distance walk.

REVIEW ON ST.IVES DAILY HYDRATING VITAMIN E







This body lotion is really moisturizing on my skin.  It absorb fast into the skin too.  I find that the smell is amazing too and it does help with the body hydration if I use for a long term.  I think other than that, my body skin is okay but I am getting lazier and so I did neglect my body skin so they are actually dry.

I found out that some apply it on the face as well but I do not dare to do that since my face is kind of sensitive and acne prone while hers is dry.  Overall, this is an affordable body lotion and it does help in hydration.

There are glycerin and glycerin does help to bring in moisturise into the skin.  I just do not dare to use on my face.  I read some use it on their face to moisturise their skin.



Products retails St. Ives Hydra Vitamin E Lotion 621ml Rm25.90 at a Watson and guardian.

FOOD REVIEW KING'S CONFECTIONERY (TBS)










King's Confectionery
Address: Unit L4-39, Fourth Floor, Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, Bandar Tasik Selatan, Kuala Lumpur, Sungai Besi

This is one of the two bakery in the TBS bus station and I notice many would buy from this shop as it is cheaper and because of the location. One would immediately notice this bakery as it is near the escalator.

The cake taste was not hard and the size is quite big for Rm2.70. I think it is worth the money. The chocolate cream is not too sweet and it is just nice. However, I would prefer if there are more chocolates syrup inside the cake but there is none. Overall, reasonable price for a cake. It also come in a nicely plastic box which I think make it looks more expensive than it really is.

Chocolate Sliced at Rm2.70

FOOD REVIEW ON BROTHER JOE IN MERSING

Brother Joe
Address: Stall No. 2, Jalan Sheikh Hassan, Kampung Sri Lalang, Mersing Town










With a weather like this. It is cold and dry, one need to take more water and drinking coconut water is really a good remedy for health. Coconut juice is also good for those who is having ‘demam denggi’. This place is open from the afternoon but people usually visit this place at night for their famous ikan bakar. This is the place that I usually go for my coconut juice and it is just besides the sea so one can enjoy the view of the sea while eating their food. The only thing was the wind might be too strong. Coconut juice is fresh and it is really the young coconut as I always feel really full with just one coconut.

FOOD REVIEW ON KOONG WOH TONG 恭和堂




Koong Woh Tong 恭和堂
Location: LG-069, Lower Ground Floor, Mid Valley Megamall

I was actually surprised that they shops only sell three main things and it turns out that this is a family business own by few generation already. I notice many would choose to takeaway their tea in forms of plastic cups but I prefer to enjoy the environment while sipping the tea slowly. The shops is well organized with simple and traditional choice or furniture. The tea comes in traditional porcelain bowl and customer would just drink it from the bowl. No spoon provided. The service is good as you can just mentioned your condition and the lady will suggest which tea is better for you. I normally get the herbal black tea called wong lo kat which is bitter and helps with getting rid of toxic. The bitter taste doesn’t linger for long inside the mouth. I slept better that night since the tea really reduces the toxic in my body. Overall, this is the place to go for herbal tea if you are lazy to do it yourself.
the taste
It cost RM1.70 per bowl


The five flower tea is sweet but not those sugary type that will cause you nausea.  It really felt cooling and smell the great.  The taste and the pure freshness of newly brewed five flower linger inside the mouth even after finish sipping the tea.  The sweetness does go down the throat and i felt one is transport to an area with five flower tea.  Great choice for those who do not like bitter herbal tea.




 I love the softness of the herbal jelly and it is especially good for a hot day. I find the grass jelly a bit bitter but it is bearable because we are also given the sugar syrup to combat it. The grass jelly does help to relieve my sore throat and my family love it for the feeling of eating soft herbal jelly. Eating herbal jelly is good for complexion and it is one of the traditional Chinese way for clear, soft and young skin. I would definitely come again as this is good for busy and lazy people like me. Price is reasonable.
RM8 for small

REVIEW ON SALLY HANSEN COMPLETE SALON MANICURE 550 ALL FIRED UP

Sorry for the lack of post as my laptop is with the 'doctor' for more than two weeks and I have to do this at the cyber cafe =( .

Chinese New Year is around the corner and normally the nail colour chosen to accompany the clothes would be red.  I am not really a fan of red nail polish but i think for Chinese New Year, it would be great.

Is this pretty?

SALLY HANSEN COMPLETE SALON MANICURE 550 ALL FIRED UP






The Complete Salon Manicure comes with 7benefits:
Base Coat
Strengthener
Growth Treatment
Color
Top Coat
Chip-Resistant
Gel Shine


The range comes with fancy names that matches the colour.  I got this All Fired Up and it really matches the red colour inside the bottle.  It does look like having a bottle of fire or blood boiling inside the bottle.  I  imagine too much. XD

The bottle is heavy as it is made of sturdy glass.  The colour is visible from the bottle itself.  Application was super easy with the application wand and it felt just like applying gel nail polish.  The end result was so even and beautiful.  The colour was also opaque and shine just from using one coat.  It does last long on my fingers considering I do laundry and housework. I think this is really the nail polish to get considering that one do not need to apply base coat to get the ed beautiful results.

I did the flowers  by using pin as I do not have any brushes to paint the nail polish.  Forgive me if it is not very beautiful.

Since it is Chinese new year, I bought this bright red shoes too =)

REVIEW ON DR.JART V7 TURNOVER BOOSTER


If you have heard about this famous beauty Korea show, I am sure that you would know about the Dr. Jart ceramidin cream that is a favourite even among the Korean celebrities for the light and moisturizing property and it can be mix with BB cream to create a base for a long lasting makeup.

Today, I am going to introduce another product from Dr. Jart which is the Dr.Jart V7 turnover booster. Do visit the link for more information on what is a booster. I wrote about them a while ago.


photos are from Dr.Jart official site

Key ingredients
Vita 3 Complex – Helps to reduce the appearance of pigmentation caused by acne, sun damage and delivers high levels of anti-oxidants
Vitamin B3 Niacinamide - Improves skins resilience, improves cell renewal
Vitamin B5 Panthenol - Aids wrinkle prevention
Vitamin C Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate – Helps to protects the skin from UV damage, helps maintain skin resilience with anti-oxidizing agents
Vitamin E Tocopheryl Acetate - Anti-oxidant agents help prevent skin ageing and improves elasticity of dry skin

Here is the box.  Make sure to keep the bottle inside this box.

The bottle is made of glass and it is quite heavy.  So make sure not to drop it.

Some of the wording are in Korean since this is a Korean products =) .


sorry for the ingredients that is not so clear



Water, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Diethoxyethyl Succinate, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Betaine, Silica, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Squalane, Arginine, Niacinamide, Carbomer, Panthenol, Caffeine, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Ubiquinone, Disodium EDTA, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Euglena Gracilis Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Glyceryl Arachidonate, Glycery



The booster is clear white with gold particles.



What is so special about this booster is that it contains 7types of vitamins to feed the skin according to the vitamin pyramid. The bottle is also in a dark colour and has a dropper to it. I find that I really like this kind of dropper as it is so easy to use and to avoid contamination to the product. I keep the bottle inside the box though in case the light will destroy the product.

I use the booster few drops in the morning and more at night. It absorbs into my skin very fast and hydrates my skin without any heavy feeling. My skin was peelings from the weeks of neglect, along with the breakouts and usage of acne prone products so this is really helpful with the hydration without being too heavy. I do not use any moisturizer during that time since my pores get clogged easily but surprisingly I do not get any skin peeling when I am using this.

This is really an amazing product for hydration although it is just a booster. I use serum, beauty oil or sleeping mask after the product at night. I find that all the skincare product works seems to work better and faster when I am using this booster.  Everything just get 'absorb' into my skin when normally all those product seems to just stay on top of my skin.  This is sure a keeper.

I will buy this again because it really helps my skin with hydration without clogging my pores.


Thanks Corinne for introducing this product to me. I love this very very much =)

P/S: If you are getting Dr.Jart V7 toner, you would have to use the toner after the Dr.Jart turnover booster.  I am not sure why but I think it is because the V7 toner is not a clarifying toner and it is a hydrating toner that contain active ingredients for the skin.  So, the sequence would be cleaner> booster > toner.


Products retails Rm145 for 50ml at Sasa. Made in Korea.
