5 Reasons Why I Love Tsubaki Oil

tsubaki oil
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Tsubaki oil comes from the seeds of the Camellia Oliefera plant or tree that grows in the high mountains of Asia and Japan. It is rich in oleic acid and vitamins A, B, D and E as well as nourishing Omega 3, 6 and 9 and has been widely used by Geishas in Japan over the years for great looking skin and hair.

Knowing how amazing Tsubaki Oil, I got so excited when my favorite hair and skin care brand Hairfood Co. launched Tsubaki Oil among their line of essential oils perfect for the Asian beauties.

Hairfood Co. Tsubaki Oil

Here are 5 reasons why I super love it!

    1. Non Greasy Feel! The molecular weight of the oil is an almost identical match for skin that I absolutely love it when I apply it on my face as it does not leave me feeling greasy nor does it feel heavy after application. It is full of essential fatty acids and lipids that are similar to those that you find in your skin so definitely it is perfect. It absorbs into the skin just about as fast as water making it great for all Skin Types so whether your skin is Normal, Oily, Combination, Dry, or Sensitive, you won’t go wrong with Tsubaki Oil.  Use it also for stretch marks, and lines too. It gets right down into your elastin and collagen of your skin and helps to keep your skin looking healthy. Simply massage 3 to 4 drops on the area.
    2. Hair Care – Just like the top layers of the skin, the hair is made up of similar protein, keratin. So therefore Tsubaki Oil is perfect for the hair because its lipid structure is recognized by the hair. Put on Tsubaki Oil on hair after wash preferably from the middle down to the ends and leave it on. OR you may want to massage it into your scalp and hair and leave it on for half an hour and then rinse it off.
    3. Makeup Remover – another thing I love with my Tsubaki Oil is it makes removing my makeup super easy especially my eye makeup (talk about eyeliner!). Simply apply a small amount of oil and use a cotton to remove the makeup! Seriously easy plus it does not irritate
    4. Great for Body Care – Tsubaki Oil is a nutrient and antioxidant-rich skin moisturizer and softener and its fatty acids contain powerful agents for retention and enhancement of skin moisture. Since it is fast absorbing, it penetrates deep into the lower layers of skin enhancing natural cell growth. Apply it on damp skin preferably after shower to get the following skin benefits;
      • Moisturizes, nourishes and softens skin
      • Restores elasticity
      • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
      • Repairs stretch marks such as in after pregnancy
      • Heals minor acne scars
    5. Nails and Cuticle Care – yes! This is how versatile Tsubaki Oil is! For softer, smoother, and healthier nails and cuticles, put in few drops of tsubaki oil on a cotton and wipe to nails and cuticles. Best to do this after shower. This softens dry or brittle nails and rough cuticles, Keeps nails nourished, smooth and shiny, and helps alleviate discomfort from dry skin under.

Loving Yourself Through Proper Health Care

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

We are all big on self-love and self-care. To some, prowling over fitness gyms in the neighborhood, raiding vegetarian restaurants at the corner of the street, and looting for the most effective herbal supplement over the counter is loving and caring for oneself. For others, self-care and self-love comes through indulgent skincare. Yes, you read it right. Skincare.

Though beauty is only skin deep, how your skin looks can affect your self-esteem. Having that glowing, healthy-looking, supple skin gives you the confidence boost to put out your best foot forward. But, implementing the right skin care regimen can be quite a challenge for some who are clueless as to what will work for them or will not.

“Skincare addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted,” says Dr.Lalaine Salazar, medical director of the Svelt’i Health and Beauty Center. For the past two years, SvelT’i has become a pillar of promoting health and beauty inside out while preserving a healthy skin and body. And in those two successful years, Svelt’i has helped many individuals turn their simple skincare into a ritual of self-love and self-care.

The doctor shared she would get similar messages, either in Viber or Instagram, from patients sending their before and after photos, telling how happy they are with the huge difference and beautiful improvement on their skin. One satisfied client shared, “I remember how I was so ashamed of my face full of acne but now I gained the confidence to face every day without hiding anything and with a positive attitude.”

Aside from promoting proper skin care regimen, Svelt’i is also committed to aiding people achieve a physically fit body with the help of technology. The centre offers a variety of non-invasive treatments that promote healthy weight loss. “After 10 sessions of I-curve and several of thermogenic, I lost more than 12 lbs and 7cm off my waist line. This enables me to use the clothes that I want and have regained confidence. I now take time ensuring what I wear is nice compared to before where I have no choice but wear bulky clothes” shares one fulfilled client. Since the centre’s launch two years ago, Svelt’i has been taking care of its clients’ needs for body slimming. What’s more fulfilling for the people behind Svelt’i is that each client comes out of the centre feeling better and fresher.

“These are the words that inspire us to give the best services. We are not just promoting beauty and health, we are building the self-confidence of our patients,” shares Dr.Lalaine.

Biting into the “health” and “wellness” craze makes one true to the epigram that says, “love yourself enough, to live a healthy lifestyle.” Taking good care of our body through proper skin care, eating a balanced diet, and sufficient exercise is the key to self-love and self-care we all deserve. And in our never ending journey to finding self-love and self-care, we can count on Svelt’i in achieving overall beauty, inside and out.

Gym Makeup Tips

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I have a little fitness secret to tell you. I wear makeup at the gym when I workout. Shhh… Okay, okay, before you go ahead jump and judge me, let me tell you why! Well I just don’t like going out there bare faced considering that I have to be travelling at least 30 minutes going to the gym. I do commute so you’d understand that I would want to look at least presentable with people around while I am just sitting there with my earphones on listening to my music list. And hey! The gym is a room full of mirrors, who doesn’t want to look good? Haha!

Anyway, I don’t really go heavy on makeup when I workout because the last thing I want to have are breakouts. Sweat mixed with makeup is not good as it can clog pores causing breakouts. That is why it is not really advisable to wear makeup during workout, but if you MUST (like me) be out there a little made up, make sure you use the right products. I personally just to simply touch up my face with my few makeup must haves. Here’s my list below:

Water based moisturizer – I love to keep it lightweight. Water based moisturizer is just refreshing to the skin while it does its job in controlling skin’s oil and shine.

Giving Yourself a Little Extra Attention

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Staying refreshed can be difficult, especially if you have a busy schedule. It is important to spend some extra time treating yourself to a bit of pampering. There are plenty of ways that you can spend time relaxing. Here are some ideas to help you unwind at the end of a long day.

Soak in a Hot Bath

Taking a hot bubble bath can be incredibly relaxing. Many bath pillows are available that have suction cups that attach to the bathtub. Using a bath pillow will help you lean back comfortably and enjoy the warm water. You can also try to use a bath bomb with a relaxing scent, such as lavender, as part of your bath. Bath bombs are available in many scents, and these scents can invigorate your senses and help you relax. Many people enjoy reading a favorite novel or magazine while relaxing in a warm bath.

Give Yourself a Manicure

You can also give yourself a manicure as a way to unwind. After you are finished with your bath, gently push your cuticles back. Cover your nails with a natural nail base coat and follow this with your favorite color of nail polish. You may also want to give yourself a pedicure. You can try a variety of colors or techniques to enhance the appearance of your nails. For example, you can choose to polish your nails slightly different hues of the same color. Adding white tips on the end of nails can create an incredibly sophisticated style.

Use a Facial Mask

Many facial masks are available that offer ingredients that can soothe and refresh your skin. Applying a facial mask can help exfoliate your skin and get rid of dead skin cells. When you rinse the mask off, your skin will feel clean and smooth. The mask can help your skin gain important nutrients and vitamins that promote healthy skin.

Try to set aside time at least once a week to pamper yourself. Doing some of these spa services at home is easy and affordable. You will be delighted with the revitalized feeling you have after you have a chance to relax.

Oils For Daily Use

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

You’ve probably smelled essential oils at some point. They are the oils that can be added to bath water for a delightful smell and the oils that are sometimes put in vacuum cleaners to make the entire house smell good. You’ve likely noticed that they do wonders for the body. There are quite a few benefits of using essential oil singles, some that you might not know about that you might want to try as soon as possible.

One of the oils that you can dab on the skin is tea tree. It is good for healing issues with the skin, such as acne or fungus on the feet. Place a small amount on a cotton ball to put it on the face or other areas as you don’t need a large amount. If you’re looking for a way to relax, then consider using lavender oils. When the oil is warmed before going to bed, the scent can help relax the mind and the body, making it easier to go to sleep at night. You can also put a small amount of the oil in your bath water to help you relax as well. The oil can reduce stress levels after a long day. Put a small amount on your hands, rub the hands together, and gently sniff the oil to get the full effect of the oil.

Chamomile is often associated with tea. The oil has properties that are similar to the tea, relaxing the body and reducing stress. This is a reason why so many people will drink the tea before going to bed. Some people will add a small amount of the oil to their pillowcase to help relax the body and mind. Peppermint is an oil that has numerous properties. It can be used to stimulate the mind, or it can be used to increase mental alertness. Some people will dab a small amount of the oil under the nose to help open the sinuses. This will make it easier to breathe if you suffer from allergies or sinus infections on a regular basis with no relief from medications.
