Chocolates good for our hearts

Good news ladies!  Chocolates are good for us.  Well, at least the dark ones.

According to the American Dietic Association, one of the primary benefits of chocolate is the antioxidants, particularly the  flavonoids  that are responsible for preventing cholesterol from sticking to our artery walls, a cause of heart attack and stroke.  In fact, these  flavonoids  in chocolates are the same compounds that are found in red wine and tea.

Apparently because flavonoids come from extracts of the cocoa bean, therefore the darker the chocolate, the better it is for our body .

Use fewer skincare products

Just picked up this very useful article from chosun.com titled “Want Beautiful Skin?  Try Using Fewer Skincare Products.”  According to it, mixing some products can actually cause more harm to our skin.   Something I believe many of us women are very much guilty of.

Lee Jong-min of Re&New Clinic, explained that some cosmetics contain ingredients that can lead to problems when combined. Many cosmetics contain preservatives to prevent decay and emulsifiers to help substances blend and stay smooth. If you’re not careful, Lee said, you can make skin problems worse by using too many products at once.

Fyrinnae Underthere Face Primer

I’m so glad I stumbled upon Fyrinnae and got to purchase their Underthere Primer, amongst other products.  This is a great face primer, and a daily makeup staple for me now.  

It’s such a simple and plain looking product.  No fanciful packaging.  No fanciful smell.  Yet, it does wonder to my face as my makeup look velvety and smoother over it.  Not only that, my powder actually stays longer as my face don’t secrete as much oil as before. 

Ret rid of those armpit hair

I really want to get rid of my underarm hair.  Permanently if possible.  However, I’m too embarrassed to go to the doctor for a laser or an electrolysis hair removal.   So I shave.  Yes, that’s what I do.

I did try other means but those methods prove too time consuming, painful or messy.  For example, plucking my armpit hair on an almost daily basis.  It was feasible when I could afford a longer time in the bathroom.  But with time constraints now, I’ve to resort to quicker methods.  And I’ve tried using hair removal creams like Veet, but yikes, it’s smelly and messy plus it burns my skin sometimes.  So I’m back to shaving daily.
