Barbie Hsu Barbie Hsu tells you the optimum time for beauty sleep
Taiwanese celebrity Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛) recently unveiled her second beauty book (美容大王2) which I’ve yet to read.  The tips in her first beauty book were average but there were a few worth taking note, in particular the one about removing eye bags and dark under eye circles.

Her remedy is actually simple.  Nothing expensive or elaborate.  Just remove them via beauty sleep.  But it is not just about getting the normal eight hours of sleep.

Some of you may remember the very first Miss Reef Bikini held at the Reef Wakefest in Singapore last July where the participants were parading around in lycra athletic tops and Reef sandals from Argentina.  Cool sandals eh?  You may also have seen the brand if you shop enough at The Heeren Shops.

Well, they’re cool indeed.  After all, Reef is the world’s leader in authentic, surf-inspired good quality footwear.  Don’t believe?  Just look up their website or at Active Sandals which carries the largest selection of Reef sandals

Flaxseed oil is a natural source of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) which is good for maturing, dry skin as well as skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. In fact, it is one of the most easily available healthy fats which I’ve wrote about.
