Quiz: what does your skin need right now?

It’s the Chinese New Year eve here and I’ve been really busy with last minute shopping and spring cleaning. I’ve also been slathering my DIY acne clearing mask to try to clear my acne blemishes so that I don’t get incessant queries about them from nosey parkers. Sure I wish I have skin like Song Hye Kyo’s but I’ll need a good healing brush on my face to achieve that! Non-digital no less!

How about you? What do you do to make your skin look fab? Well, if you have no idea, then you might want to take this quiz posted at Total Beauty to find out. If only we were lucky enough to grow out of our funky adolescent skin rut and have perfect, clear skin forever. But since we live in the real world, take this quiz to figure out what your skin needs right now.

    Happy New Year!
    To look extra gorgeous this evening try to do an “ice” mask. The best thing, it’s free. Just take a cube of ice, make sure it doesn’t have sharp edges, and swipe it over your entire face. It shrinks pores, capillaries, any swellness, bags under eyes and makes your skin looking very fresh. Give it a shot, you will like the results. Not quite air brushing, but close.

    Happy New year! I work tomorrow so we celebrated today ? it was so much fun! I think I gained weight from all the good food *u*

    This morning I cleansed my skin and did my nails. I just did a microdermabrasion and nose peel because I had a little bit of pimples starting. It felt good! I feel like Year of Tiger will be great!

    Wow, that’s a nice ritual. Yes, must remember to drink lots of water.

    Thank you Stephanie!

  11. sesame says:

    I usually rely on a face mist when my face gets dry but have to remember to pat the water off or the skin would get drier.
