Five different ways to cleanse your face properly

5 Face Cleansing Methods Five different ways to cleanse your face properly
In the early years of Viva Woman, a reader once asked me to write a post about how to wash our face properly. I was a bit stumped at that time, thinking, “WHAT? You gotta be kidding me right? How am I supposed to fill up a post about how to wash your face without resorting to fluff?” Okay, I admit I was ignorant as I’d thought of facial cleansing as simply, wetting of skin and lathering of soap that takes up no more than five minutes. I mean, what else can there be? But eight years later, I realized that I was SO wrong. There is definitely more to facial cleansing and so today, we’re going to look at not one, but five different ways to cleanse your face.

Walking Gracie down Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade

Grace The Shihtuz Walking Gracie down Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade
Gracie came to our family last year on June 8 so she’s officially over a year old with us now! How time flies and how much she has grown! She’s about two years old now but she still looks and sounds every bit a puppy. As a matter of fact, she’s often mistaken as one and when I mention her age, people would then comment she is a “mini shihtzu”. I don’t really think she looks that mini but she definitely behaves like a puppy most of the time. You should hear how she whines in the morning just to get me out of bed! (-_-)

When I was first introduced to the Le Mieux Skin Perfecter, I thought it looked frightfully intriguing. Now, how does a beauty tool that resembles a hand scraper cleanses my face? Am I supposed to scrape dirt and debris off my face the way I scrape excess cement off my toilet tiles? *GASP* But on second thoughts, it’s not a bad idea if it can actually scrape off some of my pigmentation and leave me with perfect looking skin. LOL.

Reviva Labs Eye Products Two best selling and affordable eye creams from iHerb
How many of you would agree that it’s a challenge to find a good eye serum or eye cream? It’s even harder to find one that is effective and yet affordable. Many of you would probably have realized by now that the phrases “over-promise” and “under-deliver” usually go hand-in-hand in this category of skin care. But today, I’m going to introduce you to not one, but two eye products from iHerb that are not only effective, they’re practically going for a song. I was a little skeptical when I first read the reviews but because they were so cheap, I figured that I won’t be wasting too much money if they really don’t work for me. And let me tell you, they’re great stuff!
