Itâ€™s going to be three years to FAMUSHU and Iâ€™ve been constantly asked about fashion and beauty, though the latter is a subject (to be honest) I am very laid back about. I hardly indulge in branded beauty products. However, I thought, since my readers and friends ask about what I use, I might as well just post it here.
It might come across as surprisingâ€¦but I do not apply any cream on my face, my experience with facial creams have been quite a disaster, they seem to clog the pores rather than refresh or revitalize the skin. So instead, I apply natural packs, like mixes of honey and lime or banana and milk; they suit my skin more and keeps the skin healthy. Furthermore what goes â€˜onâ€™ the face is equally nutritious to have in your body! Drinking milk, water and taking honey Vit E &C are essentials for me.
Ponds Pure White deep cleansing facial form is perfect as a regular face wash as it cleanses the pores of the skin gently exfoliating and gives a natural glow as well. I know this might not be exactly â€˜on the faceâ€™ product but Bettina Bartyâ€™s White Musk lotion is impeccable for hot weathers, since I live in a tropical island, the hot sunny weather can take away the moisture and damage the skin. White Musk has a soft smell and moisturizes the skin well â€“ what I do sometimes is, I put a gentle amount of lotion on my face as well before I head out during the dayâ€¦I know, to some it might come across as weird but it helps a lot to keep my skin moisturized!
Wearing a foundation on a daily basis is hardly my thing but for special occasions I do try to pat my skin gently with some Lâ€™Oreal Paris true match foundation. It gives a nice matt finish to the skin. To complement the look I brush some Lâ€™oreal Paris Glam Bronze Blonde Harmony duo sun powder over my temple and cheek bones to give a soft shine and glow.
And I know this does not exactly go onto the face but I always spray a gentle amount of Valentino before heading out to work or etc. The fruity yet sensual notes of pomelo, pear blossom and magnolia is lovely.
Hoping this briefly outlines what I use as beauty products I sign off, promising more beauty and fashion posts in future!
