Ha? 28 ka na? : Anti-aging with Novuskin Lift

When I was 21, I never wanted to age. How I wish I could stop time, and fulfill and be the first “Forever 21”!

Haha 🙂 That age has just so many possibilities going on with it. I was a fresh graduate. I just got my first job. Everything was just a first; I could hardly choose which one to begin!

24 years old

Fast forward to 7 years, I was able to climb up a career ladder, started a blog, became a brand ambassador of some brands, hosted my own talks, spoke to workshops and seminars, got featured in 2 TV shows, dyed my hair orange, got engaged, and getting married real soon!

OMG! Time sure flies so fast!

28 years old

As I look back, I know there were a lot of things I could have corrected, and wished I had done more than what I had, but then again what else can I do right?

All we need to do is to focus on the now, and what we can still control.

I am 28, and I think my efforts pay off whenever I get shocked reactions about my age. Golly, my fiancé even thought I was 18 when he first met me! I was 26 at the time.

But seriously, I think everyone feels the same way whenever other people think that they are younger than their original age.

There could be a lot of factors that can contribute to aging: diet, sleep patterns, exercise, stress, bodily responses and adaptation techniques to stimuli, environmental conditions, preferences, etc.

Recently, I took a chance and tried to use Novuskin Lift. It’s an anti-aging product that helps restore the skin’s natural elasticity through its scientific formulation that combines nature’s finest rejuvenating extracts with marine fish collagen, L-glutathione plus vitamins, and minerals.

For my one month’s use, I have seen how my hairfall significantly decreased. My skin feels smoother too, considering that I am not much of a lotion-user.

My sleep cycle improved too. Before, it takes me some time to get sleepy, but ever since I took NovuskinLift, it is now easier for me to get zzzzzzzs.

I will keep you updated in the coming months, as I take on this #NovuskinLiftJourney.

NovuskinLift is now available in Mercury Drug Stores and other leading drugstores.

How to Achieve Whiter Skin (+ A Glutathione Brand Review)

I have often been asked about how my skin never gets dark despite continuous sun-exposure and long hours of sun-bathing.

Believe me, I always fancied having tanlines I can parade in the city post-beach trip, but maybe the tide isn’t just on my side.

Nevertheless, like what they say, love the skin you’re in. And I love my color, it’s the only one I have anyway.

But what I’d like to share with you today is how I keep my skin maintain its fair color, and some tips on how you can achieve that whiter skin. Trust me, it takes time, but that’s the safer route.

Let’s begin.

1.      Protect your skin from the sun.

Of course, you know UV rays, apart from the fact that it encourages your skin to produce more melanin, it also has the ability to damage it. So use an umbrella, and bathe in sunblock! Haha Especially for the face! You don’t want additional wrinkles and dark spots, do you?

2.      Exfoliate your skin!

Since dead skin cells don’t naturally take themselves off, you can just help them by exfoliating. 

You can either use body scrub, or use calamansi to rub in your dark areas. I use these on my elbows and knees. You can also use lemon with sugar as an alternative for the body scrub.


3.      Prick your pimples!

With clean hands or tools of course!

Contrary to pop culture, I think there is beauty and logic when it comes to pricking pimples earlier or using pimple-clearing speed gels.

It addresses to take away the bacteria that are inside soon before it invades more tissues underneath the skin. Prolonging the pimple or lump inside may cause more havoc as it is not yet being released.

You can see how the beauty aestheticians prick them during facials, and not let you wait until the eye appears or the pus, whether fresh or hardened, is ready to come out.

Letting the pus out sooner means you rid your skin more pimple mark space from darkening.


4.      Use your trusted organic or natural whitening products.

These products / goodies are way safer and healthier than those that promise instant whitening. Instant whiteners have more chemicals that can be harmful.

Avoid bleaching too and its variants, as they may cause adverse effects in the future, particularly on your liver.

The liver is responsible for detoxifying all cosmetics and pharmaceutical products being applied topically or orally. So it’s not only your drinking that should be moderated! 😉
Remember, health should not be compromised with beauty. Okay, merfriends?

5.      Use Magic Cream for pimple and chicken-pox marks.

There was a time I hoarded pants and leggings for a year, and I never wore shorts or skirts. This was the year after I had chicken pox. Magic Cream was a savior and erased all the dark marks left by the pox.

I stand by this product so much. It has restored the natural transparency of my skin. My arms and legs look like they never had chicken pox at all!


6.      Don’t wear white bikinis on the beach when the sun is up.

The white color of the fabric is a good reflector of the light from the sun, when it bounces back – well, you know why your face got extra toasted that day. 😕


7.      You can try Glutathione pills.

I tried KB Glutathione for a month, and while reaction to glutathione pills is relative to each taker’s bodily mechanisms, I am quite happy with the results.

My skin had this radiant glow. And even though I was a late-sleeper, I still wake up fresh and my skin looks moisturized.
My face became clearer too as some of my pimple marks turned shades lighter.

It smells very eggy and foul too, one of my indicators that it’s potent and legit.

It melts easily as I had once let a capsule stay inside my mouth prior to drinking water for like some seconds, and it started to melt.

That’s a good sign actually, as it suggests that it certainly disintegrates once it’s inside the body.

KB Gluta is available in leading drugstores nationwide and can be bought in Lazada too!

Get a Free Body Scrub at Finessa Aesthetica

When I was a kid I often wondered how it was like to be a grown-up lady.

IMG_20170822_150802-01

I suppose “she” never had to endure weird torn up skin appearing just below her nails. She never had to clean her toes after wearing open-toe sandals the whole day.
And she would always smell sweet no matter how intense the sun is.
When it was my turn to finally find out what happens when you’re a lady, I realized it wasn’t totally hearts and flowers after all.
You have to put in an extra effort and invest.
When I was 8, I also remember being fond of watching TV and lying there, curious on why celebrities have this rich, fair and well-nourished skin.
I would be a hypocrite if I tell you I never wanted to be like them, or even have that gorgeous skin. But I’m glad for my parents’ genes because achieving my dream skin felt that it was not so far-fetched as I thought it would be.

I was given a chance to try a few services from Finessa Aesthetica, and I felt more like a princess than a lady.

IMG_20170822_152932.jpg

Together with some of my blogger friends, we took the opportunity to experience how it feels to be pampered and prettified at the same time.

IMG_20170822_162422.jpgIMG_20170822_162527-02

We started with our Whitening Glutathione Drip. It was my first time so I didn’t know what to expect. All I knew is I felt calmer after, and my muscles felt more relaxed.

LIPO LIGHT WRAP

I also tried their Lipo Light Wrap.

I was asked to take a shower and wear this suit while I was inside the lipo light machine.

IMG_20170822_171827.jpgIMG_20170822_172547.jpgIMG_20170822_173848.jpg

Lipo Light Wrap is a service wherein it predisposes your body to sweat by being subjected to some light therapy inside the machine. This is best for people who would want to lose weight, expel toxins and have a better blood circulation.
I fell asleep! Haha 🙂 The whole service is timed for an hour.

IMG_20170822_173915.jpgIMG_20170822_184401.jpg

After Lipo Light Wrap I was supposed to experience Laser Lipo in the tummy area. But since I was advised that it may have a downtime and can elicit a few blisters, I politely declined.
My skin is blister-friendly, so it’s a big no no. Tell your beauty aesthetician if you have this similar condition so they can advise you properly.
However, the day wasn’t even drawing to a close as I thought it would.

Minutes later, these diodes were on my tummy area, sending electric currents to my ab muscles.

IMG_20170822_191251.jpgIMG_20170822_191256.jpg

The Ab Sculpt Procedure is probably every gym-allergic person’s bestfriend. If you are too tired or too busy to hit the gym, and would just like to work on the tummy part alone (just like me) this may be a good alternative!

30 minutes of Ab Sculpt is equivalent to around 200 sit-ups! And it doesn’t even cost a fortune!
I had the most amazing time at Finessa Aesthetica! Can you believe all of these services are just in one establishment? 🙂

PS.

Now I know what to answer my 8-year-old self-wonders. That looking like a lady, or a princess rather needs work. You have to give time, effort, and invest when you can.
Maintaining an image can and may come with a price. You can opt to avail or not. You always have a choice.
But I’d rather believe that I can always work smart to afford, and not sulk on why the world is just the way it is and complain about why it cannot give me what I want to be happy.

Stay happy and beautiful merfriends! 🙂
