A much needed break… before term 2 starts. Or at least just an excuse for me to do nothing. Ahhh such bliss! I’ve never really understood the importance of a “staycation” till JC started. I mean it’s only term 1?! and the amount of work i’m receiving… is fucking crazy. However, i really do enjoy the challenges I’m facing regardless of how inadequate I feel compared to my classmates. Well, I’m counting my blessings to be even given a spot in CJC! So pats on my back for that.
My mum surprised me with a 3D2N stay at any hotel of my choice, but obviously within a manageable price range! The only reason why I picked Naumi is due to the awesome pool. Besides that, everything else is pretty small. The hotel has a very quaint touch to it, with personalized decorative almost everywhere in the hotel. A common print is carried throughout the hotel. They made an effort to have art everywhere in hotel, which i really appreciated :’)
The sunbathing adventure began with Joy, Lorraine and Moky as the initial guest followed by Vans the next day. She now sits opposite me, staring blankly into space and whining about missing Marcus. Most hours were spent either disintegrating into the ratan lounge chairs or the lush queen sized bed. Everything really is more fun with awesome friends by ur side, as cliche as it sounds.
I dont want it to end
My everyday skin care routine:
Products I use everyday- Face Shop Rice Water Bright cleansing foam/ Shu Uemura cleansing oil
The fantastic thing about the Shu Uemura cleansing oil is that it also acts as an make up remover. Ur face needs not to be wet went applying the oil. It’s really gentle on the skin as well. I’ve pretty normal skin so I dont recommend it for people with oily/sensitive skin.
This is followed by Face Shop Chai Seed moisturizer
There’s an oil free version as well.
I always apply sunblock before leaving the house keeping my skin super fair. All that brightening/whitening nonsense u see on the market is pure money making bullshit, sunblock is the only thing that will keep ur skin fair and radiant. I use Clarins SPF 40 UV High protection. Another tip is to use a tinted sunscreen/ BB cream with UV protection as a foundation. It would servec a double purpose and help formulate the habit of applying sunscreen.
However, I exfoliate my skin fortnightly with Dermalogica daily microfoliant. It feels like white grains of sand against your skin, so it’s nothing too rough. It leaves my skin brighter and smoother, removing debris and dead skin accumulated during the span of two weeks.
I drink SMT complexion me tea to detox my skin whenever it feels dull or just tired in general, applying any type of mask helps as well! I use most Face Shop packeted masks as well as the O2 hydration mask which is from Face Shop as well. i keep to this regime quite regularly, consider it my “me” time.
