05.09.2013 | 面部護理

[Volume 8 Issue 9, #1782]
雖然我天生係白底人, 不過我就冇咁幸運有可以令人羨慕嘅肌膚.. 加上青春期嘅時候疏于照顧, 所以皮膚一路以來都唔係咁好, 依家更加當然係「年老色衰」啦唔駛講.. 如無記錯, 大概三十歲嘅時候先開始認認真真注意面部護理, 我覺得係有啲遲, 不過總好過冇啦.. 其實就冇俾過錢去做啲咩面部護理療程嘅, 咁多年嚟都係去買護膚產品, 自己喺屋企用咁囉.. 心得就唔夠膽講話有喇, 不過基本嘅護理知識都略知一二嘅.. 至少我覺得以上一字排開(部份)嘅護膚產品, 雖然比不上靠個樣搵食嘅朋友, 不過應該足夠嚇親好多男士(甚至女士)啩?? 哈哈!! 順便一提, 因為唔係賣廣告, 所以上面張相就特意除去牌子, 如果你八卦想知, 可以私底下問我喎, 呵呵.. 其實塊面光彩啲, 人都覺得醒神啲㗎, 所以照顧皮膚已經唔係女人嘅特權喇~~ :p
although i was born with fair skin, i wasn't gifted with good skin and complexion that people would envy.. moreover i didn't really care about my skin during pubescence years, hence my skin has never been good, not to mention now that i am slowly going over the hill.. if i'm not mistaken, i only started to seriously look into facial care, i think it was late but at least better than none.. anyway i have not paid for any facial treatment sessions, all these years i just buy the products off-shelves for use at home.. can't say i am experienced but i think i have some basic knowledge.. at least lining up (some of) my skincare stuffs in the photo above, though incomparable to those who earn a living with their faces, i guess enough to impressed many other guys (or even ladies) right?? haha!! just to clarify that since i am not advertising for the products, i have removed the brand in the photo above, if you would like to gossip about what brand i am using, you are welcome to private message me, hehe.. actually i think having clean and refreshed skin makes one looks smarter too, hence skincare is really not the prerogatives of ladies anymore~~ :p

    1. Skin care is important esp in our polluted environment and more so if one's job entails walking the streets and being exposed to the dirt and grime of auto-traffic. A routine facial treatment would enhance the complexion. :D

    2. yeah, better late than never.. and especially when were are aging and exposed to all kinds of pollutants, it's actually a good idea to let ourselves look better with healthier skin.. :)

  4. Vanakam. Had the same thought like you initially that its not a necessity for men. Imagine used ordinary soap to wash face when Bananaz skin is the 'dry' type. Moreover shy to walk alone into ladies facial saloon then. Things changed when the owner of the facial saloon is a close friend of wifey and that's history.

    1. Men also need facial products leh. Men are human also mah. Skin also need pampering on and off .

      Now many saloon welcome men customers too not those shady ones...those genuine saloon

    2. oh yeah, last time don't care lah, as long as got something to wash the face then can already, never thought of proper products lah.. but now old already, consider myself to be able to afford some facial care products, so must do it properly lah.. else i will look like 50 years old in a couple of years time~~

      actually many places welcome men lah, because men's money is easiest to earn~~ :D

    2. actually the basic ones would be cleanser, toner and moisturizer.. that is daily routine, those extras i do it like 2-3 times a week only.. and i always borong a bit during warehouse sales, so have to finish them fast before they expire, haha!!

      STP, it's never too late if you wanted to.. start using and in a month's time, you sure look 5 years younger!! of course have to cut down greasy food also lah~~ :D

    3. 7 bottles those are the basic ones la....I also have but then always in beginning will be very rajin...then later kip one round and the skip one round....bad me.

      Hmmm...at least SK doesnt have anti wrinkle yet la..no need for anti wrinkle cream. Hmm..eye creamm....sleep late always ka? Best if can sleep earlier. Sleeping early not only good for our complexion but for whole body.. last month gone to dentist and he saw my gums and sad You've been sleeping late ka? Dont sleep too late coz not enough sleep will lead to gums problems. I was amazed coz I dint tell him that leh. Was packing mah so over tired so slept late / cant sleep lo. The gums started to swell and tooth ache...adoi....skin product sampai cerita nenek kebayan toothache pulak

      Delete
    4. haha, i also have mask but didn't show here lah.. 7 bottles actually quite the same function as Anay's 5 bottles lah.. and yes, i think it's quite necessary to keep our face clean, healthy and young!! that's why Anay looks so much younger than his actual age..

      oh, actually i got anti-aging which is somehow close to anti-wrinkle lah, just the name is different.. and i think anti-aging sure more sell-able than anti-wrinkle?? haha~~ aiyoyo, this Meow sure reads a lot of her Jodie Piccoult books until late night and doesn't want to go to sleep.. hey, of course sleeping late is no good lah, not only bad for skin, health and also gum got problems too dei~~

  7. I think I have started taking care of my face since secondary school as I had too many stubborn acne! I ate too much spicy food and always have greasy face. I walked so much in the city after school and my whole face was often covered with thick soot and grime. I had no choice but to wash my face so often. Those young days, men's skincare products were unheard of....

    I was only familiar with my mother's antique brands that were popular then - Helena Rubinstein & Mary Quant which have disappeared from Malaysia. LOL

    1. at least yours is branded la...mine was bedak sejuk...home made some more leh....

      Have to go and soak rice till it was fermented then throw away the water and put in some pandan leaves to dry. every night break a piece and put some water put on the face. Eh...very syok wor....cooling...but then doesnt really help with acne.

      Later i saw TV advertise about oxy...adoi...i used and it was not suitable fr my skin..more pimples come out...sobs.... end up use plain water wash then okay lia;

      Delete
    2. yes, i started using facial cleanser during secondary school when acne starting growing on my face.. but that time really just simple some facial cleanser grabbed from supermarket shelves lah, suitable or not also didn't know.. not only until lately that i found this brand that i quite good and kind of suitable for me.. so have been using it for few years already..

      Helena Rubinstein & Mary Quant?? sounds so high class to me dei~~ Anay already using branded stuffs last time, at least i also better than Meow lah, i didn't use rice water and egg white, haha!! hey, oxy not suitable for everyone, i have not used that before.. the milder ones suit me more..

  8. These days I have gone one step further by buying the pure essential oils directly from USA. When you look at all the contents in your bottles, they only contain like 0.05% or 1% of certain essential oils and fill up with cream or spring water..!!!! We pay so high prices for the water and cream! So anay decided to hunt for the pure essential oils to use them directly and they work like miracles. Of course there is a price to pay for the essential oils.

    Where do you think SK-II, Estee Lauder and others got their raw ingredients?? It was from the same city I just posted in my blog.

    1. eh is it the same like the esential oil that i mentioned the other day. what algan oil....alamak.....what is the spelling ah? I forgot again.

      Hey I baru learnt about cactus oil. Said to be very good for the skin. But that Cactus oil super expensive and limit in production. Very very pricey leh

      Delete
    2. oh essential oil for skin?? hey, Anay you should blog about this lah.. i have no idea and not even reading what is inside my skincare products.. all i see are a bunch of chemical names only dei..

      oooh, so many oils now coming into the market!! cactus oil now pulak.. that makes our Anay the need to drink more and more types of oil everyday?? haha :D

    2. Yeah, when we started to work as part-timer, meet more friends and eventually we are easily influence by them.

      You will started to use and take care of your skin when...
      "Eh, have you try this product? Very good one."
      I will say "No thanks, I never use any of them"
      Then she'll reply "Kenot one, we are ladies, must take care of our skin when we are young, bla bla bla...."

  29. Wei make sure you read the label on the products you are buying ah...after reading the Go Green book now i very takut jor. I see everywhere so many off shelves products have EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) and paraben .

    These two combined and goes into your blood stream can be cancer causing in long term leh. More over when you mandi or wash face using warm water. It opens up your pores. Make it easier to go in leh.

      Same thing here, in order to have good skin condition, must pay some hard works la...

    3. And we don't necessarily need to spend hundreds/thousands of ringgit investing in those skin care products/facials, just make sure we do the basic (cleansing, toning and moisturizing), and DIY facial masks.
      Also, drink plenty of water and eat lots of greens and fruits.
      Then skin will be smooth as baby liao~

  31. Nothing wrong for men to take good care of skin. Many Korean flower boys use skin care product in a range like you do. Thumbs up!

    My jin jin also has skin care. Not as many as you, but also more than certain female.

    I has problematic skin until I meet my current product. I do have some minor problem on and off, now and then.

    Anyway, I believe, other than skin care, drink more water, enough sleep and exercise are also very essential to healthy skin, no?
