Breathe skin therapy- Skin care treatment that will change your life

As all of you may know about the struggle I face with my skin and my acne . With Acne and acne products come dry skin . I’ve always struggled to find a moisturiser that will NOT break me out . A little bit of background on my skin, Ive suffered from acne since I was 13 years old. My Acne grew from teenage acne to adult acne. There isnt a single brand of “Acne Product”  that I have NOT tried. Trust me , Ive tried it all.

A little while ago , a brand called Breathe had contacted me to try their products out . At that time , I wasn’t suffering from MUCH acne. My main area of concern was Acne scars and dry skin that comes with using harsh products to keep my sebum gland under control.

The brand promised me one things, that their products will change  my life forever and it DID. Especially curing my dry skin issue.

They gave me 4 products –

  1.  Purifying cream
  2. Purifying cleansing gel
  3. Softening lotion
  4. Clay and Aloe juice mask

 

The Purifying cream- As you may see, I have completely used this product. I have religiously used this for about a month and my dryness has almost gone .

Yon Ka Facial Treatment

Recently I was invited by Queens Beauty Lounge to review their Yon Ka Facial Treatment. The treatment claimed to purify skin and give it a toned complexion . And that is what it did.

The entire process lasted for 75 minutes after which I left the saloon with clean , perfectly balanced skin.  The moment i got home , my husband complemented me on how my complexion looked . Keep in mind that my husband DOES NOT notice anything , he is one of those people who cannot make a difference at how my skin looks unless something drastic happens to  it. So I guess he noticing a difference meant that the  Yon Ka Facial treatment did something.

The facial not only clears up your skin , it completely relaxes you aswell. Its a Spa- Facial treatment.  The good thing about this facial is that it can be customized for any age and skin type.  My skin is dehydrated combination skin . The lady at the center used 5 Quintessence essential oils to purify my skin.

 

In a nutshell, these are the Essential steps of your Yon-Ka treatment:

– Aromatic compress

– 2 warm mists with 5 essentials oils

– Plant-based soft gel peel

– Peeling

– Gentle elimination of blackheads

– Relaxing massage of the face,neck and decollete

– Eye contour mask

– Purifying mask with aromatic compress for face and neck

– Aromatic freshness awakening

 

I highly recommend this treatment for someone who is lacking that GLOW. Its a perfect pre-function treatment .

Ever since my modeling days, Ive used Kryolan so I’m someone who has always been fond of Kryolan. They are known for their TV / Theater Makeup.

But not many people use kryolan for their lipsticks, it might be changing though.  To know more about Kryolan click here 

Being a makeup artist Ive had my share of lipsticks and I must say Kryolan lipsticks have been my favorite. One of the specialties of Kryolan is that they make a zillion shades which makes it easy and difficult at the same time to chose the perfect shade. But in my opinion that’s the beauty of it 🙂 I know this how??? Long ago, not so long ago I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing Dominik Langer (the grandson of the founder of Kryolan and current Director of Kryolan) and he told me that Kryolan makes sooooo many different shades of foundations/lipsticks  to cater to practically everyone .

So talking about the lipsticks- These lipsticks are super creamy, semi matte finish and long lasting … What else would one want from them ?

 

Shade is : Lip Rouge LC120 GO11624 . I honestly have nothing more to say about these lipsticks.

Price : Not too sure, bought them over a year ago. Approx 1000Rs.

Kaya Aqua Radiance facial review

 

 

Kaya Radiance aqua facial. hydration facial
Kaya Radiance aqua facial. hydration facial- 5 hours after the facial. My acne scars looks soooo much lighter and my skin looks way smoother than it normally does.

I was recently invited by Kaya Skin clinic to review their Aqua Radiance facial. I’m someone who loves getting facials, who doesnt ? So when Kaya asked me, I just could not say no. I’m soooo happy that I dint.

Upon reaching Kaya, I was offered a welcome drink by their staff members.

The Aqua Radiance Facial is for someone who is  looking for a  boost of freshness. The treatment started off with a massage which was very soothing and relaxing . Then my face was cleansed with cold air, it was almost shocking your face with cold air but not to an extend where you feel numb. The temperature was just perfect. After the extraction of  bacteria, vitamins were sprayed onto my face . Once that was completed , they did a mini clean up where they removed all my black and white heads. My skin felt super soft and i felt refreshed. The facial ended with a peel off face mask.

Upon completion of the facial, my skin felt and looked like a baby’s skin. It looked fuller, cleaner and fresher.

This facial is a perfect way to cleanse and hydrate your face from Dubai’s hectic lifestyle.

The therapist who did my treatment was Maureen.

Ferrarucci Matte Lipsticks

I went to dragon mart today and I saw this small kiosk in the middle of no where. They were selling this brand of makeup called Ferrarucci. Ive seen them a couple of times before, but i  never thought much of them . I decided to take a leap of faith in their product, and I ended up buying a few of their matte lipsticks.

These matte lipsticks are the bomb. I bought these lipstisks for AED 25. With everyone going crazy with matte lips lately, these lipsticks are sleek and affordable. I have no idea how many shades they have, but they sure do have a lot.

The color I’m wearing here is FLC46. Lipliner is MAC Cosmetics Lipliner in Pink Treat.

The only draw back with this is that after I eat,I see a huge portion of  the lipstick missing right from the center of my lips. It looks a little weird and I have to immediately re apply the lipstick. What can you expect from a lipstick that costs AEd 25?

Have you guys tried this brand ? Let me know by commenting below 🙂

Reduce Pores Naturally

Home remedies for Open pores

Open and Large pores are everyone’s concerns and Im no exception. Open pores is one of my biggest skin insecurity  ( apart fro my Acne). Over the yeas  through trial and error I’ve found something that  works well in reducing the “appearance” of my pores.

These are something that we all know, but we forget to implement in our lives. It could be either because we are too buys with our lives or we simply chose to over look it. We can find these indigents in our kitchen. Natural  remedies may be slow but they sure do get the job done .

I’ve been using these for about 5 months now ( on and off and I see a huge difference in my pores). The problem with me is that when ever I see a difference I get complacent. ( I know I know .. I shouldn’t .. But I DO)

So, here it is

1. Ice cubes –

Every night after washing your face and before applying your toner, rub 1 ice cube all over your face and pat dry

2. Apple cider vinegar
  1. Mix equal amounts of organic apple cider vinegar and water.
  2. Soak a cotton ball in the solution and apply it to your face.
  3. Leave it to dry off naturally
  4. For best results, use this remedy every night after cleansing your face. Follow up with a light moisturizer. You will notice improvement within a few weeks.
3. Egg whites

Simply whisk an egg white and spread it evenly on your face. Allow it to dry completely, and then rinse it off.
