Viva Challenge: slap slap your face every day

Im Su Jung SK II Viva Challenge: slap slap your face every day

This week’s Viva Challenge is to slap your face and I mean it literally.  Okay, no need to slap your face hard.  What I really mean to say is to lightly tap your face whenever you’re applying your skin care products.   Remember some of those SK-II ads?  Did you notice how some of the models lightly tap the treatment essence into their skin?  That’s what I’m talking about.  And what does this do for your skin you ask?  Well, I learnt that this helps your skin care products to penetrate into your skin more effectively.

A hand sanitizer is a very good item to add in your cosmetic pouch or handbag these days especially in view of the rampant spread of the H1N1 virus. By now, I’m sure you’re aware that apart from the air, infections can spread via your hands as they come into direct contact with your mouth, nose, and conjunctiva of the eyes. Therefore, practicing proper hand hygiene is the easiest way to help reduce infections.

Viva Challenge: massage your face weekly

Okay, I’m back with Viva Challenge again and this time, I’ll like to introduce to you the idea of doing your own facial massage once a week. I’ve actually been wanting to write about DIY facial massage that I’ve been doing sometimes but found it difficult to write out the instructions. So I was happy to find this video on anti-aging facial massage which I chanced upon on Skindeco.

While I had earlier questioned the intent of the criticism from the Cotter about my skin, I did appreciate the highlight on my lips because it’s true I don’t protect them very well. Her comment made me think about giving my lips more protection as the lip balms and lipsticks I use are not always loaded with SPF. In addition, I sometimes use lip gloss, which can actually reflect UV rays and lead to sun damage.
