After learning that some carrier oils work well as a facial cleanser, I decided to get a bottle of Jojoba Seed Oil from Whoopeekiddies recently to try out. According to the website, this is certified organic grade whose species is “Simmondsia Californica”, grown in USA. It is not oil, but an array of wax ester in liquid form.
Korean hot celebrity Song Hye Kyo is one of my favorites. She’s not only pretty but she has beautiful complexion and without makeup, her skin is porcelain clear. When asked about her beauty secrets last year, she did not mention any of the commercial brands that she endorses. Instead, her beauty secrets are DIY recipes using eggs, honey and milk. Surprised?
According to this thread at AsianFanatics Forum, Song Hye Kyo uses eggs to keep her skin white, honey to brighten up her complexion and milk to keep her face soft and smooth.
I’m so excited about this DIY homemade vitamin C serum! I was thinking of getting the L-Ascorbic Acid for awhile but was worried that I wouldn’t be able to concoct a proper serum. After reading the formulation on a few beauty forums, especially from Alyssa aka Complex Beauty at Glowing Diva, I developed more confidence and ordered my first kit from Whoopeekiddies. And it turned out so easy! Now I’m kicking myself for not trying it out earlier.
I believe most of us are plagued by some amount of blackheads or whiteheads on parts of our face. These are called comedones by dermatologists and these facial pests are a result of the waxy oil that accumulates on our skin. When a minuscule globule of sebum collects at the top of a pore, a whitehead develops. When the waxy oil hardens, plugs the pore and is exposed to air, it turns black through oxidation and becomes a blackhead.
