Are puffy eyes cute? Not to me. They can make a woman look older or tired. So what’s the reason for getting them? I think it’s common knowledge that drinking too much water in the night before bedtime causes your eyes to look puffy in the morning. And I’m sure you already know that crying causes puffiness too. But if you haven’t been doing either and yet your eyes look unusually puffy, there could be other reasons.

Regular exfoliation like once or twice a week is essential in a skin care regime. In fact, it results in clearer, smoother skin because it helps remove dead skin cells on the epidermis. Additionally, regular exfoliation not only improves the surface appearance but the function of the skin as it allow better penetration of the active ingredients in toners, serums and moisturizers. The idea of exfoliation may come across as harsh but really, it need not be so. Instead of mechancial exfoliation via a facial scrub or chemical exfoliation using AHAs, BHAS, retinoids, fruit enzymes, salicylic or glycolic acid, there are gentler alternatives.
I am so pleased that my new order of the Marie Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen SPF30 arrived within a week of my order!

For those who don’t know, this is my daily sunscreen and today, I thought I’ll share with you, three tips I use to get more from this product. When I mean daily sunscreen, it’s really for casual sun protection and not for intense, prolonged sun exposure. Perhaps I can come up with something like “3 INTENSE tips to get more from your outdoor sunscreen” the next round. LOL.
