Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant, What Did You Do?


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today I want to talk to you about my experience with the Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant Exfoliant.

This advanced powered formula activates upon contact with water, releasing powerful enzymes, skin-resurfacing alpha hydroxy acids that deeps cleanse pores and removes pollutant from the skin. The exfoliant contains activated Binchotan Charcoal that purifies the skin, helping to absorb environmental toxins from deep within the pores, while Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract help guard against the damaging effects of pollution.

Verdict: My dear friends! As have mentioned before, I have very sensitive skin. I followed the direction but kept on my face even less than directed. However, my face broke out instantly. It started burning, tingling. I completely irritated my skin. This might a good exfoliant but it not for those with sensitive skin.

Flu Why Thy Make Me So Miserable!


mc-flu-20170221

Hi there my loveliness! Unlike me, hope you are doing well and did not fall into the trap the miserable flu. According to Center’s for Disease Control (CDC), this year’s flu is worse than any since any since the 2009 swine flu epidemic and is getting worse. Most people with the flu this season are infected with the H3N2 virus, one of the most severe — and deadly — strains of the seasonal flu. If you catch, you are miserable. Some of the common flu symptoms are:

  • Muscle or joint aches
  • Pain and tiredness around your eyes
  • A warm flashed skin,  watery eyes
  • A runny nose or a sore throat
  • Weakness
  • A headache
  • A dry cough

Get immediate medical help if you have any of the following:

  • Trouble breathing or shortness of breath
  • Pain or pressure in your chest or belly
  • Sudden dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Severe vomiting

For children, if they start to get better and suddenly turn for the worse get immediate medical help since that can be a sign of bacterial infection.

This year the flu vaccine is only about 30% effective. However, to me, 30% is better than nothing. Additional, it can lessen the severity of the virus. Also, remember the flu shot does only protect you from the flu shot, it protects immuno-compromised people around you from you.

My lovely friends, I am no way a physician. Hence, take a physician’s advice. However, please follow some good hygiene to keep yourself safe: always wash your hands, eat a lot of vitamin C to boost your immune system.

Have you or your loved ones been attacked by the monster flu recently? How have you dealt with it? I would love to hear from you.

My Battle with Androgenic Alopecia


Hi there my loveliness! It is so good to come back after sung a long break from blogging. Today, I wanted to share my reason for the break. I was diagnosed with androgenic alopecia. It’s a pattern of hair loss that affects both men and women. In women, the hair becomes thin all over the place, and the hairline does not recede. This condition in women rarely leads to total baldness. Never did I thought that I will have androgenic alopecia.

hair10a

Growing up in a society where women’s hair is part of my beauty, sudden loss of hair was a sudden psychological shock to me. I was depressed. I did not want to talk to anyone. I was hiding my head.  I remember taking the above picture reviewing a picture. Even then, I had a head full of hair.

However, suddenly in September last year, I started to lose my hair like crazy. I have my typical hair lose each day but this was drastic. I started photographing it. Within a month I lost two-thirds of my hair. I didn’t know what to do I went to my dermatologist who did a biopsy and diagnosed me with androgenic alopecia. She told me that there is no cure for this disease when using combination treatment, I will get some but not all of my hair back. Typical treatment for this condition include.

rogaine

Rogaine or Minoxidil was approved by US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of androgenic alopecia. The study is currently being marketed over the counter as 2% and 5% solution, with 5% being solution being more effective. Addition, oral treatment such as Finasteride, or Spironolactone are so prescribed along. Finasteride is prescribed only in men because it can produce ambiguous genitalia in a developing male fetus. Since Spironolactone is antiandrogen, it can cause feminization of male fetuses. Hence it should not be taken during pregnancy.

irestore

I was in emotional pain. I was put on Rogaine, antiandrogen, an antifungal shampoo, ketoconazole 2%, which has shown to effectively treat in regrowth hair.  My dear friends, at this point I was desperate to do anything. I was doing research on any treatment. My dermatologist saw how depressed I became. She told me that can lead to more hair loss. She told me I should also look into buying a laser helmet, which has shown to regrow hair by 43%. Based my doctor’s recommendations, I bought irestore. This FDA-cleared, low-level laser therapy is clinically proven way to stimulate hair follicles to grow thicker and fuller hair. It uses clinical-strength laser technology to treat balding, thinning hair and receding hairline. I use it for 25 minutes for every other day.

I am taking hair vitamin with 5000mg every day. I have been following these treatments regimens for the past four months. I have seen some improvements for sure. However, I still have a long way to go. I still have bald spots that make my heart skins but I am starting to deal with it. I never thought I will have to deal with this before the mid 30s.

My lovely readers! I have gone a rough patch I am still trying to recover from. I try to tell myself at least I am healthy, but it’s really hard to deal the loss of so much of your hair. Have any of experienced what I have through known someone. I would love to hear your story and what treatment has worked for you or your friend.

41HSPESj6IL

I if you have ordinary vase you can really make with really interesting without spending much money.

You follow the instruction to apply the tattoo into the vase and when you want to change the tattoo to a different one just remove it with a nail polish remover. It is just simple.

Remembering the Victims of 9/11


911-475x331

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today I will take a short moment to honor victims those lives on 9/11. I know that everyone like clearly remembers what they were doing when the nation changed forever. I was an incoming freshman in college was about to enter my Biology lab class when my mom called me and told me that a plane hit one of the twin towers. I thought she was joking and I hung up on her. I did not realize how true her words were until about later. I remember, while in the lab we heard what we thought was a loud bang was actually plane hitting the Pentagon.

COM 2015 ANNIVERSARY

My dear friends! Being just blocks from the White House, I will not forget the chaos and not being able to reach my family. I was living in my hometown in Washington DC. I could see the flames from the Pentagon from my apartment rooftop. I couldn’t sleep for months and had nightmares. It was few years before I got the courage to get on a plane, and I still cannot look at the sky watching a plane flying low. The world we know has really changed since 9/11.

I cannot imagine the lives of the families who lost their lives that horrific day. Let’s take a time to remember to victims, the heroes who died that day.

Do you remember what you were doing on this devastating day 16 years ago? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your comment.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Eye Shadow Palette


20170624_135532

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today I want to talk to about the Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette from Urban Decayed. I am a big fan of the Naked palettes and this is a great one to have.

Description: The palette features 12 all-new, amber-hued neutrals—including warm browns, burnt oranges, and rich siennas. These neutral to warm tones go with all skin tones.

Verdict: The Naked Palette from Urban Decade is a wonderful eyeshadow palette full of highly pigmented and blendable colors. The colors are amazing and pigmented, you don’t need to coat your brush to get the payoff and the colors are natural enough to dress them up or down. I find this palette has the best shades for smoking out your under the eye too. I absolutely love this palette.

Are you digging this new collection from Urban Decade? Please comment and let us know. I would really love to hear your feedback.
