How is it going, everybody? We hope that you’ve been coping well and have already started on your new year resolutions and especially your skincare resolutions!
This month is the celebration of the Chinese new year. It is often the most exciting month for most people as there will be the yummy bak kwa (Chinese beef jerky), pineapple tarts, and many other Chinese new year snacks. Topping it all is the collection of ang pow (red envelopes containing money) for those who are still unmarried.
Just like every other festive season, the food and snacks placed on the table could be quite irresistible. Do however remember to always eat in moderation. Of course, it would be great if you could just stay away from the unhealthy snacks. But look for a healthier option placed on the table. If the food staring at you becomes too tempting, you may just help yourself to one or two, just for the sake of trying. No good to overeat.
Exfoliating is a great way to prep your skin before any occasion. With the accumulation of dead surface cells, your skin can start to look really dull and tired. So supporting the natural exfoliation of your skin can help to brighten and renew your complexion! You can check out this Purifying Scrub by Dermagold that is a rich exfoliating butter that deep cleanses the skin, giving your skin a smooth and brighter appearance.
With all the visitations to homes of families and friends (and meetings that are only a yearly affair), looking good is essential. Apart from wearing your selected outfit for the celebration, take care of your skin. Keep your body hydrated at all times. You do not want to have your skin looking blotchy and dry. After cleansing your face with a facial wash, remember to apply some toner to your cleansed skin. Hydrate your skin with a moisturiser.
For post-scrub treatment, you may also apply a thick layer of Dermagold’s Hydra Recovery Gel. This intense hydration and soothing gel leaves your skin feeling refresh after removing dead cells from the skin surface.
Lastly, we would like to wish each and everyone a Happy Chinese New Year! May you continue to blossom each year, great health and even more wealth! Enjoy yourselves!
