I saw this tip on how to wake up with glowing skin at Top Tips For Girls and found it ideal to share during this holiday season.

  1. Take an oil supplement such as fish oil, omega 3 or evening primrose after dinner.
  2. Drink 1.5 litres of water; mineral water from Evian if possible, because it contains the highest amount of silica in comparison to other brands and silica is good for skin, hair and nails.
  3. Thoroughly cleanse your skin, then splash with freezing water a few times to boost circulation. Remember to tone and moisturise.

I usually don’t like websites that have too much flash or animations but I have to say that many of the Japanese beauty and cosmetics brands have done a good job on theirs, drawing you to their products in a really clever way.  Some like Majolica Majorca, even have interesting story lines that spans chapters.  The latest in the Majolica Majorca series is Chapter 17 titled Frozen Princess and features Japanese model and actress, Minami Hinase (美波 みなみ) or more popularly known as Minami in Japan.

Review of Everyday Minerals Foundation

72 Review of Everyday Minerals Foundation

I haven’t really touched my Everyday Minerals Foundation since it arrived like three months ago.  I mentioned during my last review of their Everyday Minerals Multi-tasking Concealer that I didn’t picked the right shade.  But a few days ago, I decided to mix all the three shades of foundation into an empty container and voilà, I got a much closer shade to my skin tone.

Glass for natural skincare products

One of the factors affecting my decision to buy a botanical or organic skin care product is the packaging.  I’m not talking about pretty or classy packaging.  Rather, I’m referring to how the product is stored which determines if the integrity of natural ingredients are better preserved.   

Some years ago a beauty therapist told me that glass bottles, jars and vials are better in protecting the ingredients of natural skincare products.  Apparently, glass is good as it increases the shelf life, prevents light degradation and engergizes organic or botanical ingredients. In addition, glass containers ensure no biochemical integration.
