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 .

Vitamin E oil for Brittle nails 

 

Vitamin E oil for Brittle nails- Vitamin E has oil has been my saviour as I have really brittle nails, especially after having acrylic and gel nails for almost 1 year. I did a lot of reading and found that Vitamin E oil is really good for brittle  and weak nails. So I decided to give it a try. I absolutely love what I’ve been seeing . I rub the oil into my nails at night and in about 2 weeks I’ve seen a considerable difference. My nails are stronger. I’m definitely happy with what I see.

I bought my bottle of Vitamin E oil from Aster Pharmacy, here in Dubai for Dhs 47. Which I think is fine considering the wonders its been doing to my nails.

I would recommend using it at night, as it then when the oil can be absorbed into the nails properly.

Pure vitamin E oil can help rejuvenate breaking nails. For best results, buy a bottle of pure vitamin E capsules, prick the gelatin capsule with a pin, and rub the oil directly on your nails. You can also take vitamin E orally to strengthen nails from the inside out!

This is certainly one of the most bizarre beauty tip I’ve ever come across and it is using coffee to beat cellulite.

Coffee is know to pull water out, which makes cellulite look less apparent .

Here is how to create an easy Coffee mask:

 ¼ to ½ cup coffee grounds  or even coffee sachets

2 Tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil 

Mix the above two ingredients and massage into the affected areas, trying to get as much to stick as possible.

Cover the area in plastic wrap and let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

Bizzare beauty tips that work

Nothing can beat the pleasure we get when we discover a weird beauty trick that works.

Here are such Bizzare beauty tricks that have worked in the past 

  • Condition your damaged hair with Mayonnaise.  Get the mayonnaise out of your fridge and into your hair for about 20 minutes. For added benefits, use your blow dryer so the heat will activate the mayonnaise even more.
  • Whether you’re always getting blisters or you’ve got a new pair of shoes to break in, rubbing a little bit of Vaseline on areas that tend to get blisters will reduce any friction so your feet won’t be cut up by the end of the night.
  • Glitter nail polish is a nightmare to remove, but if you soak a cotton ball in nail polish remover, place on your nail, wrap your finger tip in tin foil and let it sit for five minutes, the glitter will slide right off.
  • In a rush after an at-home manicure? Submerge your fingers in cold water for three minutes and your nails will come out dry.
  • Slather on the petroleum jelly, and put on socks before bed to dissolve tough calluses overnight.
  • If you turn red and stay that way after exercising (like seriously red for hours, even though you’re healthy and hydrated), take an antihistamine like Benadryl when you leave the gym to reduce redness.
  • To cure a sunburn, take a warm bath in VERY strong black tea — the tannins take away the sting and swelling
  • Soak your locks in Olive oil for 10 minutes before you head in for a shower for faster hair growth

 

Soon after Kim Kardashian got a Vampire Facelift, everyone seemed to want it.  But what exactly is a Vampire Facelift ?

Vampire Facelift is a name for a non-surgical cosmetic procedure involving the reinjection of a gel-like substance—platelet rich fibrin matrix (PRFM)—derived from a patient’s own blood back into multiple areas of the skin of their face in an effort to treat wrinkles and “rejuvenate” the face.

The result of the Vampire Facelift is a thicker collagen that fills out the face; expunging wrinkles and reducing thinness

 

Kim K Vampire Facial

 

This type of procedure can be a little misleading. Here are some Pros and Cons of such facial.

Pros Cons
It is not life threatening. Upon completing the preparation process, the surgeon will get rid of the red blood cells and inject the remaining yellow serum along with the platelets. New blood vessels will be created, which is good for the skin. Cosmetic surgery, when necessary can get rid of excess skin and create a whole younger YOU.
You will have healthier skin and eliminate much of your facial blemishes A surgical facelift can be a contributory factor to a face flop as the skin expands snugly against the bone, making the individual appear skeletonized.
Since you are using your own tissue, you eliminate the risk of an allergic reaction

 

 

Here are some Before and After pictures which have been successful

Whether or not to get a procedure like this done, depends on solely on the individual . But before one decides anything, they should always consider the price they might have to pay.

 

 

We all love getting facials done and love to look FAB . But how much is a crazy amount to spend on facials?

If you have the money, then nothing is crazy. Well I think that depends on the individuals thinking.

Kim Kardashian  spent a whopping $21,600 on power facial to go from dull to dazzling before her  spring wedding to Kanye West. That is approximately 79,336.80 AED and 1,303,992 INR . This is insaneeee. But Like I said if you have the money might-es-well spend it . Right ?  ( i wouldn’t)

The beauty boot camp, which includes eight sessions, offers such extravagant services as a Diamond Peel.

Banish Dark Circles Naturally

 

Dark circles have been a huge problem for my mother, and for years I’ve seen her use this Potatoes for her dark circles. Yes! you heard it right, POTATOES.  Potatoes are known to have several  benefits for the skin.

My mother has been using potatoes for her skin for many many years now and I can say it has worked wonders for her.

But why Potatoes

According to My Dark Circles Blog, potatoes contain catecholase (or catechol oxidase), an enzyme that lightens skin. When potato, along with its effective enzyme, is placed under the eyes, dark circles get lighter. Eventually, with long term use of potato as an under eye treatment, dark circles can diminish to the point where they are practically invisible.

The easiest way to use potatoes for under eyes, is to slice up a two pieces of potatoes and place that on your eyes for 30 minutes. Doing so twice a week will result in lightened under eyes.

The other alternative is to grate half a potato and place that  on your eyes using a cotton pad. I find this method works better as the juices penetrate a lot better than sliced up pieces. This is what my mother has been doing for years now.
