Beauty Fix : Sulta Flawless Beauty Set

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Hello everyone! I’ve missed writing here and I’ve missed sharing some thoughts and discovered beauty fixes and ideas.  I am having so much difficulty in balancing my time between work, household chores and some errands. It sucks that my blogging is somehow compromised. I am determined though to keep this page updated as I cannot afford to just leave this baby behind.

So anyway, let me share to you some horrible skin issue I had to go through last April (see? I have been away THAT long!). So yes,  I was having this battle with breakouts (like I feel they were uncontrollable!). It usually happens when my time of the month is coming. I somehow got used to it because they usually just disappear after a week or two. But that time though, my uninvited facial guests decided to camp out and stay a bit longer than they usually do (with no hint of leaving my face alone as new “occupants” seemed to be popping out from nowhere!) I totally felt and looked horrible and I just felt so helpless. I was supposed to give my dermatologist a visit but my hectic (azz iff!) schedule just didn’t allow me to do so – add the factor of laziness.

A friend told me to try and sign up for Sutla Flawless Products as it might help. Obviously I did and I chose to get the facial set – “Rejuvenating Set”. It consisted of a Rejuvenating Facial Toner, Flawless Moisturizing Cream and a BB Cream w/ sunblock and anti-agieng formula.

Of course I tried the set ones I received them from Flawless Papaya Republic and I was totally amazed with the result. It dried up the stubborn pimples, prevented them from coming and mildly exfoliated my skin thus making it lighter than the usual. I was happy with the result (pimples gone) but was even happier when my mom and some friends pointed out that I am glowing and even asked what did I apply to make it look glowing — not totally pimple free but it has this very noticeable radiance. I have Sulta Flawless products to thank for! From the facial soap to of course these three amazing products I have used.

I absolutely recommend this set if you want to have a fairer and healthier looking skin. With the BB Cream, I didn’t have to use any more foundation or powder as I am completely satisfied with it.

To Use:

  • Wash face (preferably with Sulta Flawless Facial Soap – Papaya, Guava or my favorite Noni Mangosteen) then rinse
  • Apply toner on face with a piece of cotton twice daily (morning and before bedtime)
  • Apply flawless moisturizing cream
  • Morning: use the BB cream as your foundation (it already has sunblock)

Sutla Products are manufactured by GLOWCAL Manufacturing Corporation. If you want to try Flawless’ products, you may visit their Facebook Page and see all details from there on how to order. They even open to resellers. As for me, one thing for sure, I am sticking to the toner and the soap.

Spirulina Green Algae Facial Mask

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I have been in a very serious dilemma lately as I have been attacked! My skin… Acne attack at that! Ugh! no girl would ever want to deal with infected skin and unhealthy skin due to these little things settling on their faces. I call them, illegal settlers! lol! But anyway, my usual way of relieving them didn’t work as it has been more than a month now since they decided to settle in. I figured they are determined to stay for good! But I won’t allow them for the life of me! I have gone to the dermatologist for remedy and was given antibiotics to help treat it.

I am always skeptical in taking antibiotics. As much as possible I want everything natural. Thankfully I was introduced to Spirulina just recently and I was amazed with the fact that it is an awesome facial mask too aside from taking it orally for health reasons. Here’s what Spirulina facial mask can do to your skin (and to mine).

Oily Skin – 7 Restoratives for a Happy Face

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

If you’ve got to blame someone for that oily skin, blame it to your genes!Chances are they came from someplace where oily skin served a useful purpose, such as combating the effects of excessive Mediterranean sunlight or monson rains. Heredity does play a big part in oily skin, but so do hormones. Stress can also cause the oil glands to kick into overdrive. The wrong cosmetics can easily aggravate an otherwise mild case of oily skin.

There is no magic cure for oily skin. The most recommended and practical tip anyone can get from experts is to keep the skin clean, all the time. Here are some practical skin care tips though that may help combat the skin oiliness.

Make Mine Mud

Masks can cleanse the skin of surface greasiness, but don’t expect them to “deep-clean” the pores (the term is meaningless, some experts say) or do anything more than temporarily tone the skin.

Clay masks or mud masks are worthwhile, though masks will make the skin feel good and look better, it’s only temporary. Generally, the darker brown the clay (mud), the more oil it can absorb. White or rose-colored clays, though, are gentler and work best on sensitive skin.

Splash on the hot suds
Hot water is a good solvent. Wash oily skin with warm water and with plenty of soap. This will dissolve skin oil better than cold water and soap because more things dissolve in hot than cold, and that includes soap and the grit and grime you’re trying to get rid of on your skin.

The Acne Busters

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Most zit-zapping products contains either Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid as one of it’s main ingredients, so let’s find out what these two ingredients really do for our skin.

BENZOYL PEROXIDE

How it Works: It’s powerful anti microbial properties help decrease acne-causing bacteria.

How much is it safe to use?
It’s available in strengths from 2.5% to 10% in soaps, gels, creams, or lotions.

When Should I use it?
It can be pretty drying, so it’s best used at night. Start with the lowest possible percentage. (Proactiv Solutions‘ 30-day kit, contains a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide concentrate that’s safe for daily use.


SALICYLIC ACID



How it Works:

IT sloughs off excess skin cells and penetrates into the skin, helping dissolve the material that clogs your pores. (I’s this clogging that traps acne-causing bacteria in your skin, creating inflammation and resulting in pimples.)

How much is it safe to use?
2.5% salicylic acid is the most common preparation available, and it’s also the safest to use. You can usually find it in anti-acne astringents and facial toners.

When Should I use it?

Twice daily is your best bet.

Quick note:
Layering a five percent benzoyl peroxide treatment over a two percent salicylic acid one clears the skin quicker than other combos. This is according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

Katy Perry Endorses Proactiv

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Acne won’t be The One that will get away with beautiful and stylish singer Katy Perry. The fashion icon joined fellow Hollywood Celebrities like Mandy Moore, Avril Lavigne and the pop heart throb, Justin Bieber as the New Face of Proactiv. Like every normal person, she have had her “hate-acne-relationship” brought about by stress and lack of sleep when she started doing world tours and road shows. She found a FAST and GENTLE way of getting rid of those unwanted acne through Proactiv. The icon is sharing her story to everyone as she believe that there’s a solution for acne problems. This is very inspiring and I am quite sure she will be an inspiration to a lot of teenagers who are commonly experiencing this annoying Acne attack!

I remember way back in my early highschool days, acne is my number 1 teenage problem! I have tried so many ways to eradicate them not knowing some of those were actually harmful for my skin. I depended on natural remedies after trying on some “usual recommended produts” as solution. After reading about the new proactiv, I realize the harm I could’ve done to my skin with all those tried chemicals.

Katy shared that she is using New Proactiv with micro crystal benzoyl peroxide to fight back acne. Micro crystal benzoyl peroxide can be absorbed quickly by skin (even to clogged pores) to kill the acne causing bacteria so this will yield satisfying results even faster. Also the benzoyl peroxide goes directly to the target and it does not stay on the surface of the skin thus it lessens the rate of dryness and redness that is associated with benzoyl peroxide.

 

The New Proactiv is exclusively available in all Watsons Stores and SM Department stores nationwide. Please be aware that there are unauthorized outlets selling Proactiv products. They are FAKE so please buy only at designated Watsons outlets.

Since it’s the holiday season and it’s the time for giving, Proactiv gives generous offers to their customers including a chance to see Katy Perry on her concert at the Mall of Asia on January 22, 2012. I took the liberty of copying the mechanics so you don’t need to look for it.

Acne scars are red hyper pigments on the skin that are caused due to pimples and zits. Acne scar treatment is easy if the acne is does not come back on the same area of the skin again however it becomes hard to remove the permanent acne scars if acne lesions reoccur.

You should start treating acne lesions before having to regret the loss of tissues (holes) or the excess fibrotic scarring your system creates when it reacts with a strong inflammatory response, for then acne scar treatment ain’t gonna be easy or quick.

Causes of Acne Scars
