  • #SELFCARE - TIME LOCK

    Unanswered questions about ageing that come to mind from time to time.

    How do we age backwards? What is ageless beauty?

    Why must we invest in our skin? Where is the fountain of youth?

    I am probably one of those lucky few who are blessed with good skin due to genes.

    My grandma had amazing flawless skin and I have never witnessed a single acne on my dad.

    I took good skin and youth for granted till acne hit me when I was 29.

    If only I had invested wisely for my skin before the tragedy arose.
    I ended up spending thousands on all sorts of quick remedies in order to cure my pimpled face.

    Of course, it didn't end there. Wrinkles and tiredness took over.

    Regrettably, I could never turn back time and retain my 16 year old flawless, wrinkle free and plump skin.


    Thankfully, I could stall time with Bella Marie France (BMF) Youth Bank Range, prolonging my skin’s best current state.

  • #SELFCARE: TAILORING SKINCARE TO YOUR DNA

     

    I was thrilled to be one of the first few to try out Bella Skin Care's latest skincare program that uses your DNA to manage your skin from the outside-in and the inside-out - iDDNA®. iDDNA® is a scientific path to natural, long-lasting results.

     

    IDDNA® is a revolutionary treatment that takes the guesswork out of choosing anti-aging skincare. Firstly, an iDDNA swab test is taken to collect our DNA samples then sealed and sent to the US laboratory for analysis. A pretty fast and effective way to discover our skin genes through our DNA.

    After which,  a survey is conducted which involves a detail run through of our daily lifestyle. Eating habits, sleep habits, exercise habits that form lifestyle patterns. It made sense that these are taken into careful consideration besides our genes. External and environmental factors makes a difference to our skin types. 

    Based on the test results of the swab test along with the survey, a skincare routine is customized and tailor-made specially for my skin.  iDDNA- Bella Skin Care’s approach is through a multi-faceted skin treatment, which combines the iDDNA® Ultra custom and Bella Skin Care’s in-centre treatments. It’s a holistic approach that even includes advice on the types of minerals and micronutrients that will affect and change my skin’s health over a period of time. The Ultra Custom is easy to use and nourishes my skin in an instant. 

    Besides the Ultra Custom skincare routine, the iDDNA comes with an AI mobile concierge service to manage my skin care lifestyle needs in real time and location-based recommendations to stay on track to achieve better skin health. As a mum, the app enables me to adjust and improve my lifestyle habits to better my skin condition.  For example, it monitors the UVA-UVB level and suggests the appropriate SPF level of sunscreen to use, plus the temperature, humidity and pollution levels of wherever I may be.

    At the same time, I only have to use a night cream and a day cream, whereas with other regimes I have to complete as many as stipulated steps. It’s so advanced and absolutely impressive!

    As mentioned, in-centre treatment with Bella Skin Care works hand in hand with the Ultra Custom. At Bella Skin Care, their staff are deeply knowledgeable, the environment is relaxed and friendly. Bella Skin Care’s service has been excellent right from the start. I thought watching my DNA being collected was fascinating, and the results have been interesting.

    I’d say my skin now feels suppler and deeply hydrated. There is a glow to my skin and it feels more taut than it did before I started with Bella Skin Care’s treatment and the IDDNA® system. Results have been very promising especially since I have only been on the system for more than 2 weeks. The improvements I’ve noticed were enough to convince me that genetically tailored skincare could be more effective than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. My enczema was entirely non-existent after less than 10 days of application! I also believe as new mums or mums to be with constant hormonal changes, we can't take chances with our skin. Which is why Bella Skin Care is the best option in my opinion. Reliable, convincing and result-driven.

  • #SLOWLIFE: NATURE ON MY FACE.



    Why you be trying Kiehl's #natured-powered face masque?

    Nothing beats a fantastic face mask.

    You know that protection for our vulnerable skin we are all after? 
    Well, it seems that if we want one that lasts, Kiehl's Cilantro and Orange Extract
    Pollutant Defending Masque
    may just be our saviour/

    What you’re really looking for is a masque that not only hydrates but defends as well. Defending against pollutants of all sorts. 
    Kiehl's formula works to block and defend against skin-damaging micro air pollutants that penetrate the skin’s surface.

    This is a mask for that. A triple action solution blocks damage, repairs and strengthens skin, helping to resist pollution. I leave it on overnight and let my masque do all the work.

    Why I love it:
    This mask makes your skin seriously radiant. 
    I applied a thin layer overnight and I promise you my skin went all supple and glowy after I washed it off the next day.

    The best part about using a thin layer is that a little goes a long way, a thin layer is all I need to get complete hydration and full protection.

    Smoother the mask all over your face, you'll feel relaxed and happy.
    That is the feeling of contented skin.
    Which only means this little jar will be lasting me months instead of weeks.

    You won't be regretting this. X
