The RM11.90 Product That Cleared Up My Acne

You’ll never guess what it was.

PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY OF ZOE SCHAEFFER

Last night, i read an article wrote by Zoe Schaeffer about a really cheap and efficient method which everybody could try to get rid of acne problem on back (bacne). It is a common issue which facing by many Malaysian ladies, so i think it'd be great to share her experience on my blog!

Like a lot of folks, she first got acne as a teenager. She figured she’d outgrow the condition with the rest of her awkwardness, but even as she got older and quit wearing cargo shorts, the pimples stuck around. They dotted her T-zone, burst across my chin, and then appeared on her chest, arms and back.

How To Vanish Bacne?

Zoe Schaeffer visited a dermatologist and she told her to pick up a bottle of Head & Shoulders for its active ingredient, zinc pyrithione, which kills yeast and fungus. (Fungus is a major contributor to dandruff.) She was to rub it directly onto the patch of skin, let it sit for a few minutes and rinse it off.

The patch was quickly gone. So she decided to give it another go and use it on her body again. Within days, she had less swollen red lumps on her shoulders. Within two weeks, they were completely gone!
How the heck did it work? “Yeast on the skin can invade hair follicles, causing pus-filled pimples,” says Joshua Zeichner, M.D., a New York City dermatologist.

How Many Times To Use?

Zeichner’s advice was: Use the dandruff shampoo daily for one to two weeks, then twice weekly for maintenance. Let it sit on the skin (“sing the alphabet” while waiting) before rinsing, so it has enough time to penetrate the hair follicle.

If you've tried many ways to cure your body breakouts without success, why not give this a try?

Foundation Mistakes You’re Probably Making


Finding the right foundation shade and formula is key. And remember, less is always more! Avoiding the mistakes below from today for a flawless skin:

1. Matching Color Exactly


Many women get color matched right to skin tone and are unhappy with the results, since it can end up looking too washed out. In this case, going for a warmer tone <<< buy here (one that has yellow or golden undertones)—especially if you’re very pale or have aging skin concerns—can actually look more natural and flattering. Topping with a warm shade of blush will also help with tone correction here. If you’re tan or deeper toned, stay away from pinkish hues.

2. Heavy Foundation Concealing



Whether it's acne or wrinkles that you want to cover, heavy foundation concealing will actually cause the difference in skin texture. So, use primers to improve the looks of discoloration and fine lines, and concealer on blemishes instead of caking your face all over with foundation.

3. Using the Wrong Formula for Different Skin Types


Whatever type of foundation you use, it should seamlessly blend into your skin after applying it. You'll then get coverage without heaviness, and the finish appears natural. Most of the time, powder can settle into pores and lines on dry skin, while liquids can look too wet on oily skin. However, creamy textures often hit the right note of providing flattering coverage with a natural finish on most. You'll need to take some experiments to find out what looks best on your skin types.

4. Applying Everything Everywhere



Most women wearing makeup is to apply a blanket of foundation and powder to the face and to over-conceal. It's recommended to only apply foundation as needed, and then going into specific areas with concealers, like the under-eye and acne, blending with the warmth of your finger. Then, finish with powder only in the center of the face, where it’s truly needed; overdoing it can kill your whole look.

Why You Shouldn't Wear Makeup While Exercising?
Why Pre-cleanse Your Skin Is Important?


Most of the ladies' workout time is right after work, and it’s such a hassle to remove makeup especially when we are almost late for the gymnastic class. Is it bad for our skin to work out with makeup on, or is it okay to do sometimes?

Unfortunately, having too much substance sitting on the skin, whether it's makeup, dirt or oil buildup, puts your pores at risk for becoming clogged. "When you’re exercising and overheating, you're opening the pores," says Friedman, M.D., a dermatologist based in Houston and New York City. "So you need to cleanse your skin to minimize anything that can clog the pores and lead to breakouts.


Before exercise, it's important to cleanse your skin with a gentle makeup removal. And after exercise, clean your skin again with a gentle cleanser. "The key is to prevent the pores from becoming clogged", says Friedman. The combination of sweat and makeup can cause several types of breakouts, including blackheads and white heads.

Not only can working out with your makeup on cause acne, but it also can be a contributing factor to skin aging!


If you're exercising outdoor, however, it’s important not to go completely barefaced. Instead of applying a foundation with SPF, choose an oil-free sunscreen that has the words "water resistant" on the label.

9 Useful Tricks To Get Your Makeup Absolutely Perfect

Learning how to craft great makeup is easier than it seems. We here at Gembira.com.my compiled a list of 9 super-effective tricks to help you always look your best without the help of expert!

1. First Step: Getting the right contours for your face

Great make-up starts with great foundation.

Many makeup artists will tell you that the way you contour really depends on your face shape. There is one common rule you should follow: you apply contour shades to the area you want to hide or recede and do a highlight on the areas that you want to stand out.

2. Two principles when shaping your eyebrows


  • The width of the eyebrow should equal the width of the upper lip. Big eyes needs thicker eyebrows. Heavy eyebrows can also help you make your face more balanced. Avoid having thick eyebrows if you have small eyes, otherwise your eyes will look too tiny.
  • Consider the distance between your eyebrows and your eyes. If your eyebrows are set high, heavier brows might provide a more balanced look. If you have eyebrows that are set close to your eyes, you’ll need to make them thinner otherwise you’ll get a frown face.

3. Applying eyeliner


Drawing one straight line across your eye with your eyeliner is a challenging task. You can try drawing a row of dots and then connect them.

4. If you are applying eyeliner at home, use a spoon

.
It's the easiest way to get a wing shape for your eyes!

5. Use your name cards too


Using your name card is also a great trick to make the line super straight. Don't forget to angle the card in the right direction for both eyes.

6. Use tape instead of name card for the right angle


Another great option if it's difficult to angle your name card: take a piece of tape and place it at the outer corner of your eye. You can stick it to the back of your hand first to get some of its tackiness off.

7. To keep your lashes curled longer, heat up your eyelash curler with your hair dryer



8. You can remove excess product from the wand before applying mascara to avoid clumpy eyelashes



9. Two ways to make your lips look fuller


To create the fullness look, apply a light concealer around the lip lines and then put lipstick on. Done!!!
