I’m quite sure most of you use a face mask of some sort every week. Maybe it’s a sheet mask, maybe it’s a clay mask, a cream mask, or a homemade mask that you’ll leave on for as short as 10 minutes to a longer duration of 30 minutes. So I’m very curious as to what do you do during that time: do you just lie down to rest or do you optimize the time and do something more productive?
Many ladies are particular about being under the sun, mainly because they are afraid of developing premature wrinkles after long sun exposure for a period of time. And of course, for some, they are afraid of getting skin cancer. But these reasons and priorities can vary depending on which part of the world you are living in. One thing we can be sure of is, beauty companies are coming up with many different types of skin products that can provide sun protection and double up as another skin care function at the same time, making it easier for ladies to get more than sufficient sun protection. So the question for today is: are we getting enough sun for health’s sake?
Recently, I watched a video about having a skin care routine while flying on a plane. I have heard of people who either indulge in a masking session or reapplying moisturizer on the plane, but I myself have never done either. As the plane climbs higher up into the atmosphere, the air gets colder and dryer and will dry out our skin; so I think it is helpful to moisturize and pamper your skin when on the plane, especially for people who travel often. But I think it requires quite a bit of courage to do that while sitting that close to a stranger who might think you’re a vain bimbo that looks annoyingly stupid while masking.
I was invited to have a haircut and coloring session at Komachi Hair Cult more than a month ago. Now, I am very sensitive about my hair and I can get all riled up at the slightest comment. So there I was, sitting in the salon for the first time and feeling rather unimpressed with what I saw. It also didn’t help that the hairstylist spoke Mandarin to me and then bluntly pointed out that I had very little hair. And while I was still feeling miffed about his comment, the shampoo boy who attended to me asked me if I’m suffering from hair loss. And that was it! My anger rose to the point I was prepared to pick up my bag and walk right out of the salon that very minute!
