7 Tips for Achieving Clear Skin

There are a number of things that you can do to achieve clear skin, including:

1. Consuming Fresh Foods And Plenty Of Water

The foods and drinks that you consume will impact your skin a great deal. The best thing you can do for your skin and your body is making sure that you are eating wholesome, fresh produce and plenty of water while avoiding fast foods and processed foods. Put together a diet that includes nuts and seeds, fruits and vegetables, fish and lean meats while limiting the fats, sugar, salt, and additives in many processed foods today. This will help to give your skin a variety of nutrients to stay clear and healthy, The water works to hydrate your skin while helping to flush out the body's toxins. If you do not want to give up salt, you can look for alternatives to table salt such as sea salt. Coconut sugar, raw honey, and maple syrup are also great alternatives to processed sugar.

2. Avoid Prolonged Sun Exposure

While having some sun exposure is good for your body to bring in Vitamin D, having too much sun can cause damage over time. Be sure that you use sunscreen and pay attention to how long you have been out in the sun. You can also wear a hat to help protect your skin. Overexposure to the sun can lead to things like premature aging and skin cancer, which makes the risks very high. If you have marks then look at this post from Dore Aesthetics.


3. Remove Your Makeup At Night

While some people may forget this step or ignore it completely, removing your makeup and cleansing your skin is best when you want to have a clearer complexion. The makeup when left on the skin can lead to a build-up of dirt and bacteria that can lead to clogged pores.

4. Use The Right Cleanser

The last thing that you want to do is end up using a soap that is too harsh on your skin. Any standard household soap will always be too harsh for the face, so look for a gentle cleanser that you can use on your face both morning and night. The good news is that there are many options today for people with sensitive skin that will still help to remove bacteria and dirt for clear skin without any sort of reaction.

5. Be Mindful Of Spreading Bacteria

Anything that comes into contact with your face on a regular basis should be cleaned to keep the levels of bacteria low. Always wash your makeup brushes and try not to touch your face using your hands throughout the day, as this can transfer the germs that are on your hands to your face.

6. Skin Exfoliation

You need to remember that proper exfoliation is crucial for healthy, clear skin. When you exfoliate regularly using natural ingredients or products, you can remove the dead skin from the pores. This will then pave the way for the fresh, new skin to shine and allow for your moisturizer to soak deeper into the skin for the best possible result.

7. The Power Of Lemon Juice

You will find that lemon juice is loaded with ingredients that are wonderful for cleaning and toning your skin. It works to break up and remove the bacteria for fresh, clear skin. Simply take a tablespoon of fresh-squeezed lemon juice and mix with a tablespoon each of honey and sour cream. Apply to your face and let sit for about ten minutes before rinsing off with fresh water. You can then use your facorite moisturizer or you can use your own lemon juice mask made from a mashed avocado and another tablespoon of lemon juice for an extra step of pampering for your skin.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
