During my years of beauty work, I had waxed plenty of arms, legs and some privates (the only body area I hated waxing for many reasons). I once had a brazilian waxing done at a parlour that left me cringing at the thought of attempting it again because of their uncommon method of prepping. Instead of “greasing” the area (which can minimise some pain) after cleaning it, they powdered it instead. The moment the hot wax was pulled off, my knee out of reflex hit the light lamp that was at the side of the bed and the wall. I can’t remember if I went home with any skin left on my intimates. Other than the therapist’s skills, the wax product plays a big part in delivering a less painful experience for the consumer! Needless to say, I stayed off brazilian waxing.
We know that dehydrated skin causes fine lines, wrinkles and eventually loss of elasticity. For me, dehydration also boosted the stubbornness of my clogged pores. While on my natural skincare journey for the last few years, I skipped doing facials and extractions entirely. Whilst natural, functional ingredients work at keeping the skin’s innate ability to self-restore and “purging” of impurities, it didn’t mean that it can keep all the congestion at bay. Early this year, I noticed the clogged pores going viral across the entire face. I don’t even need a magnifying lamp to see that!
Hair plays an important role to the physical age. The lack of a full crown may easily add on 10-20 years to a person. Other than looking pretty with all the colors and chemical treatments (rebonding/perming), scalp care is one thing that many neglect, including me.
From oral supplement to tonic spray and tonic solution via a dripper, I am constantly open to trying hair loss solutions. Fortunately the last few products seemed to work fairly well for me, but I’ll not stop at improving my scalp and hair’s health with natural ingredients. I also try not to consume too many supplement or pills of any kind because it might put stress on my kidneys. The search led me to this natural herbal scalp treatment.
I support natural and locally handmade products. After I finished using Biconi’s natural Shampoo Bar and Conditioner, I started trying out this facial set that claims to protect delicate skin from environmental damage, eliminates clogged pores, and improves skin tone. This 2-piece bundle served me fine and fast enough when I got home too late and really need to get to sleep as soon as I can. I love a fuss-free skincare routine.
I have been deliberately ignoring my nails for the longest time and whilst super-short, naked nails didn’t bother me, it is always pleasant to have colours and properly manicured fingers. It does make a difference to the personal grooming part and making an impression.
The thing about going to nail parlours is – I hate having to face hard-selling manicurists and I dislike rejecting people and even having to open my mouth to turn them down. The beauty industry has been known to not sustain too long, hence all the more I wouldn’t want to sign a package to come to realise that they close down after that. Recently, I stumbled upon Tip Toe Nails Spa, a humble and cozy nail and scalp-care salon within my neighbourhood and I was pleased to know that they do not offer package (nor hard-sell) to customers unless requested!
