Then, after EVERY flight, especially flights more than 8 hours, the first thing I'll do after locking my hotel room door, other than rushing to get out of the kebaya and my undergarments (i.e.bra), is to remove my make-up, shower, and slap on a sheet of mask. It can be from anywhere - SKII, Garnier, Face Shop, Skin Food, Watsons, ANYWHERE~ JUST get me a mask!!! It probably kept my skin fair and flawless, other than the smile lines that formed along the mouth, probably due to me being obsessed with whitening and not wrinkle-care, and excessive smiling onboard the airline with the best service ever. The longest I would go without a mask treatment would be 3 days. 3 DAYS!!! MAX~!!! Any more and I'll start to feel uneasy about my skin and worry that it's going to turn bad.
1 year after quitting, I realized to my horror when I was writing this post, that I've become lazy in that aspect. I'm doing masks like once every 2-3 weeks! *!!!!!!!!!!!!* This cannot go on. So, at 1:30am in the middle of the night, I shall do an intensive face-care mask-marathon. Okay la, not exactly marathon, but I'm going to -
For some reason, these masks from The Face Shop can never seem to fit my face properly, but who cares, as long as my face still gets the nutrients. Oh, you know after you use the mask right, don't throw the packaging away yet! There's ALWAYS some more ho liao in the mask packaging which you can squeeze out - use them on your neck!!! When you're 40, you don't want to look like you're in your 20s from chin up but have your neck screaming your age.
After 20 minutes, I removed the mask, and massage whatever remaining goodness there is into my face. I then followed it with a water sleeping pack. (I'm applying it right now btw.) These are super moisturizing and you apply them before you head to bed. I'm not sleeping yet, but I'll just have a layer of this on so my face is force-fed with loads of moisture~
Been under the sun for a short while today cos I was riding, and the sun has never done me any favours other than scorching my skin dry and giving me freckles. So these days after riding in the sun I will almost always come back and give my skin, especially my face, some whitening and hydrating TLC. But today, because I haven't done anything for my face for the past 2 weeks, I'm going to just hydrate because someone told me that whitening products dry your skin even further. Sigh~ Oh well...I'll do the whitening when I wake up~
There, a sneak peek into one of my beauty MUSTS. More coming up~ Keep straining your neck~~~~
Muhuki! (Okay this is starting to get addictive~)
