Every now and then, we come across reports in the news or social media of unsuspecting people being cheated of their hard earned money just because they wanted to make some extra money from a get-rich scheme. I am sure we all desire for some extra money to help us through in times of need when we have to settle unexpected bills incurred through times of emergency e.g. hospital and medical bills, dental bills, car workshop bills, etc.
There are many ways to earn extra money. Some hold a part-time job after their normal office hours, some go for part-time job working Saturdays and Sundays. Others may register as direct sellers selling all kinds of products ranging from health products to kitchenware or household products. There are others who sell insurances.
Skin rituals are very helpful especially when you do it religiously, without missing out on it or being lazy. Guilty on this one. I admit, I sometimes fail to wash my face before retiring to bed when I am dead tired from working. Besides, I have this thought that washing your face after 8-hours straight from working in front of the computer is not a good and healthy idea at all.
These skin rituals though are enough to make your skin glow without going to the derma salon and spending way too much, particularly in my case, nos. 2, 3, and 4 are applicable.
- Clean your face with a mild anti-bacterial facial wash. This expels the dirt, oil and make up you might have on your face.
- Use a mild toner that would clean your face from excess dirt that may not have been removed by the anti-bacterial facial wash.
- Put a natural oil facial serum for skin moisture and health.
- Take a Vitamin E supplement at least once a day because Vitamin E helps in providing skin beauty and health!
Aging process is something that we cannot stop and avoid. As you age, a lot of changes occur that sometimes stress you out including the thought of spending a fortune to actually maintain ones skin. This is a common misconception that majority have. Having beautiful skin does not always mean you need to break the bank and buy the most expensive skin care products just for the search of our skin’s holy grail. It doesn’t need to be like that simply because you just need to know and understand your skin type in order to be able to manage it and turn it to a more beautiful skin without paying too much! Change of lifestyle matters, too!
I never thought I’d get conscious on how I look when I reached 40. I was never beauty conscious. I was one of those women who could go out and show-off their natural look, without even getting bothered if they put the right lipstick on for the day, or done their brows evenly. But the more I look in the mirror closer, the more I notice the unwanted blemishes and lines that make me feel older than my actual age.
The problem is I don’t know what products I should buy that match my skin tone, and well, age definitely. I sometimes doubt the ladies-in-charge of each make-up section in the malls because I know they are more particular of the after sales that they should bring in at the end of the day. Apart from the “pasalubongs” that I get from my husband and brother, I have also tried several drugstore-bought make-ups, but was never satisfied. Besides the quality, I also consider the “price tags” that are attached to it. Being the naturally impulsive buyer that I am, I don’t want to end up doing the same with the things that should actually go in my least priority list.
Chancing upon Dear Berry’s products, I find these pretty affordable and safe. Among the many, here are the items that I have written in my wishlist:
Cover Girl BB Primer #2 Natural Beige | Brand: Cosmax Inc | Product Code: DB101
On my idle time, I watch make-up tutorials on YouTube with my daughters. In every tutorial made, a Primer is always present. I don’t think I have ever used such thing. When I put on my make-up, I would go directly to applying foundation after the moisturizer. If ever I’d go for a Primer, I’d definitely want something that could do magic, and cover my blemishes which this Cover Girl BB Primer #2 does > Cover blemishes with 3 satisfying effects: whitening, wrinkle care and sunscreen. I am more concerned about the wrinkle care because whether I like it or not, lines are slowly occupying my 40 year old face.
It’s such a beauty seeing your stuff organized and in place. Well, I’ve always been organized with my make-ups but I used to keep them in pouches, and in a remote control organizer that I purchased from Japan Homes. They’re nice to look at but when it’s time to use them, it’s a struggle to find one as I need to dig carefully.
Got lucky when I learned that my cousin, Mauilyn, sells this organizer online. Just perfect! No need to pay for the shipping fee! But got luckier when my brother ordered and paid these for me. (Been meaning to buy at least one but I always think it’s not a priority and besides they survived in pouches for years now haha!). He actually preferred the bigger round organizer but I insisted on getting the one with drawers, and buy two instead since the bigger one pretty much costs the same if I get two square ones. I’m such a wise buyer eh?
