5 Things that you are doing wrong for your skin


Skincare routines can be quite confusing for a gal. Often times you may read about some new way to keep your skin fresh and supple, only to find out that you are harming your skin in the long run. These common mistakes may not have such devastating effects, but occasionally, they can provide long term problems.

We all know that using collagen creams can be the secret of a youthful skin. Sometimes, using a face cream is not enough though. There are a lot of common misconceptions with regards to skincare. Let’s take a look at some of the things that you may be doing wrong for your skin.

1.       Drinking water from the bottle: Drinking a lot of water helps to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. A lot of skin care experts would tell you that one of the first things you must do with regards to skin care is to drink a lot of water. However, few people know that drinking water directly from the bottle is actually bad for you. In the long run, this simple act would create wrinkles around your lips. A lot of people never actually think of this. Just the way frowning a lot would give you wrinkles, this also has long term effects.

2.       Applying sunscreen only to your face: This is a common error made by women. Sunscreen is not meant for just your face, and most people know this but go ahead anyways. This act leads to having lighter skin on your face and darker skin throughout the rest of your body. It is essential to use sunscreen or a summer cream all over your body every single day. Even though it may be tiring, you must realize that this is for your own good.


3.       Taking very long, very hot showers: Hot showers are very refreshing, and they get even more refreshing when the weather is cold. However, when you stay in the shower for too long, you are getting rid of your skin’s natural oils. This would leave your skin dry and itchy. If you want to have healthy skin, use lukewarm water or don’t stay in the water too long.

4.       Exfoliating a little too much: Exfoliating helps to rid your skin of its dead cells and expose a fresher and much lighter skin tone. Doing this too much may have adverse effects on your skin. It can get addictive when you see the initial results gotten from exfoliating, but try not to do this too frequently.

5.       Getting too little sleep: Sleep is the body’s natural way of rectifying errors and rebuilding dead cells. If you are overworking yourself and not getting enough rest, your skin would start to age quicker, and you wouldn’t look as fresh as people that are getting enough sleep.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
