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 Get Beautiful Underarms for P250

It’s always every girl’s dream to have the perfect underarms. The kind of pits you would always want to show off and parade whenever, wherever. The kind which does not dictate your fashion as when you can or cannot wear sleeveless.

But busy schedules get in the way, especially when you cannot properly allot the time to go to a waxing salon and hair removal clinics.

Believe me, my planner gets too colorful being jotted down by work and events, that I barely have time to go and receive my well-deserved waxing treatments. 

Next thing you know, my monthly visitor is here already! Waaah! Another week to endure waxing delay.

Given that hair removal is just one step to beautiful underarms, I would just like to share some other tips that we can do to achieve the perfect pits we’ve always been craving for.

 

  1. Don’t shave. Ever.

I have known this before I even grew hair in my underarms. Having such a vain and beauty-conscious mother is such a blessing! Hehe :p

Shaving takes away the outermost layer of one of the most sensitive skin in our body, and prompts the underlying tissues to react and produce a tougher and darker skin.

“When skin is irritated, an inflammatory reaction ensues, which stimulates pigment-making cells (melanocytes) to generate more pigment, causing the skin to become darker,” says Baton Rouge, LA, dermatologist Ann C. Zedlitz, MD.

 

  1. Avoid wearing tight clothes, especially if you just had your underarm hair removed.

Tight clothes inhibits the natural growth of hair follicles causing them to go back to the skin and harbor bacteria. This is one of the reasons of painful ingrown hair.

Wearing body-fitting clothes, especially those under your arms can cause irritation, sweating, and skin friction.

 

  1. Exfoliate underarms with natural ingredients.

Lemon and Sugar

sugar lemon

Take a bowl, mix 2 teaspoon of granulated sugar and 1 squeezed lemon juice. Apply the mixture to your underarms, and wait for 10 minutes until it dries.

Gently scrub your armpits for around 2minutes then rinse with lukewarm water.

This home-made exfoliant rids your underarms from dead skin cells, smoothens texture, and removes dark-skin-causing bacteria, leaving a more supple and bright pits

 

Potato Slices

Soak potato slices in a bowl of water for 2 minutes. Rub them to your underarms after.

Potatoes have natural bleaching properties that helps in promoting bright underarm skin.

 

Yoghurt and Orange Peel

Yogurt-With-Orange-PeelIn a bowl mix 2 tablespoon of fresh yoghurt and some dried orange peel powder.

Apply the concoction to your underarms and let it to dry for about 15 minutes. Wait for it to dry completely, then rinse with cold water and apply some moisturizer.

This brightens your underarm keeping it moisturized and supple. Yoghurt’s lactic acid eliminates the skin discoloration.

 

  1. Avoid aluminum and parabens in your deodorant and antiperspirant.

If your underarms have become a bit red, swollen, bumpy and irritated, kindly check your antiperspirant to see if there are any aluminum ingredients in it; because it is one of the ingredients available in most underarm products that highly causes breast cancer among its users.

antiperspirant

Antiperspirants basically block your sweat, which is the unnatural thing to do. We need to sweat to rid off bacteria and toxins from the body. The aluminum salt in most antiperspirants block your pores and keep you dry, but this could also irritate your skin.

The yellowing of our shirts in the underarm area is actually the stain left by the reaction of the aluminum contents with the urea (waste products from the body) in our sweat.

Antiperspirants that contain alcohol may also be too drying for some people’s skin, which can lead to irritation, as can any ingredient that ends in “-paraben” (such as methylparaben).

  1. Use natural or organic underarm skin care.

To be honest, I really had a hard time finding a natural deodorant before, but I recently saw this wittily named product that can be the answer to our underarm woes.

Pits Perfect is an all-natural deodorant spray. It whitens, fights odor-causing bacteria, leaving you fresh, cool and clean.

Don’t even start with its fragrance. It reminds me of the scent of citrus fruits and flowers combined.

I have been using Pits Perfect for a month now, and my underarm skin condition improved greatly. My chicken skin is actually smoother now, compared before.

They have clearly settled that Pits Perfect is not an antiperspirant, because the brand actually adheres to sweating, reasoning that it’s healthier and natural. 

And the best thing about this is it doesn’t have parabens and aluminum content!
I just apply 2-3 sprays per underarm, and I’m smelling fresh all day! I don’t even need to use perfume! 😀

And can you believe that this is just P250.00?

Organic Beauty by Herbal Soap Philippines

Ever since I learned how some ingredients in beauty products can be dangerous, I tried to begin a quest in search for the best organic alternatives in the land.

It’s like finding vegan spritz in a sea of a pork market. Pretty difficult, huh? Not to mention they come in real pricey tags! So what does a girl got to do?

Good fortune I call it. I happen to meet the founder of Herbal Soap Philippines, and you could imagine how happy my invisible fins were, knowing they have a huge arsenal of organic cosmetics!

One of my big hurdles in beauty is maintaining my mermaid red-orange hair. The strands have faded quite a bit, and my natural roots are starting to show. Looks like sunset and darkness in one field, but mostly I just look like a choco-butternut doughnut! Hehe 😛

Combing a freshly washed bleached hair is a nightmare. My hair is unruly, and they rebel by means of falling. 😦

Good thing I found these!  Herbal Soap Philippines’ Natural Shampoo and Conditioner feels mild on my hair, and they make it very easy to comb!

I use my fingers in combing my hair, and surprisingly, the strands are very easy to manipulate now!

Ingredients include aloe vera extract, tea tree extract, argan oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, and virgin coconut oil. 

These special carrier oils are naturally produced and are perfect in maintaining manageable, soft and silky locks! Their moisture-inducing properties help make our mane their best versions ever!

I also had the chance to try their soaps, and so far this is my favorite! It is the Natural Whitening Soap, made of papaya, arbutin, licorice and bearberry, essential ingredients to restore my natural color, and fade dark spots on my skin!

Their Natural-Antibacterial Soap is made of tea tree, lemon grass, acapulco and guava. My little pimples started to dry with continuous use!

The Natural Mosturising Soap out of goat’s milk, shea butter, aloe vera and cucumber is perfect for our dry skin. You can even leave the house without putting on lotion anymore.

I am amazed how the Natural Slimming Soap is making me sweat more than usual. I believe this is ideal to use before working out so that you are dreaded to burn more calories! It is made of seaweed and snail cream!

My locks are more manageable now! And I get to enjoy the sun without worrying too much about my hair’s health!

They smell very natural as well! So occasional floral and grass scents are to be expected merfriends!

I absolutely love Herbal Soap Philippines’ products! And I will always swear by the organic! 😀
