Assalamualaikum and Happy Monday, my love!
Last week was a busy week because I’m setting my priority to focus more on Sport United Championship MSU 2016. I am SO SUNBURN!
as for this week, I started with my Chemical Free Week Routine. I’m not sure if this routine is acceptable within you people but this is what I usually do when I need or want to change my skin care product. Because of Malaysia have humid and hot weather that people become extremely careful with what they put on their skin.
The reason I do the Chemical Free Week routine is because I’m changing from Neutrogena Neutrals to Simple skin care product. I hope that this is helpful for you and to give you a bit of information if you have a combination and oily skin type like me.
I know that some people can’t accept eel in their stomach, not even on their taste bud but grill eel is just amaaaaazing! Not only taste good but eel have so many benefits that make me want to stuff ’em everyday. But, because Eel is not my food regime, I dare not to consume in large amount. My routine would be purchasing Roasted Eel Onigiri every Monday, as they say, a little goes a long way. This is the list of Eel benefits that makes you want to add into your diet!
- Eel does not contain sugar, and is low in sodium and high in phosphorus.
- It is very rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B12, D and E, which are necessary for the body’s general wellbeing.
- Eels possess substances that are best for rejuvenating the body in summer.
- The fish decreases cholesterol, lowers blood pressure and reduces the risk of developing arthritis.
- It promotes good eyesight, normal brain development and nervous system function.
- Studies have shown that eels significantly reduce the chances of developing type-2 diabetes.
- Since it is high in omega-3 content, high intake of eel can delay the development of diabetes in glucose intolerant individuals.
- The fish helps in easing cardiovascular disease risk factors, like high triglyceride levels.
- The skin, flesh and bones of an eel are capsulated in the powdered form, to make it more concentrated. This powdered form is consumed as an all-natural food supplement in Japan and some parts of Europe.
- The powdered form is developed especially for elderly people who want to live with renewed strength, vitality and energy.
- The Korean men consume eels as a good source of stamina
Okay, I know its a chemical free week but let’s cheat! I could stand 3 days without washing my face in Australia but trust me, the amount of sweat when you’re in Malaysia is undeniable. Wet wipes is a must of my everyday go-to product. For this routine, I will be using 2 wet wipes which is Guardian Wet Wipes in the scent of Apple Fresh and Simple Kind to Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes.
Guardian Wet Wipes contains NO PARABEN & NO ALCOHOL, so, if you have access to Guardian, I do recommend this product for the benefits for you and your love ones. Moving on to Simple Kind to Skin Clean Facial Wipes– because this is an imported product, it is a bit pricy but also a must have.
I have consume Evening Prime Rose oil like for ages and it does help me with my menstrual and giving a bit of energy boost also helps clear my skin. The benefits are:
Evening primrose oil is the oil from the seed of the evening primrose plant. Evening primrose oil is used for skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. It is also used for rheumatoid arthritis, weak bones (osteoporosis), Raynaud’s syndrome,multiple sclerosis (MS), Sjogren’s syndrome, cancer, high cholesterol, heart disease, a movement disorder in children called dyspraxia, leg pain due to blocked blood vessels (intermittent claudication), alcoholism, Alzheimer’s disease, andschizophrenia.
Some people use evening primrose oil for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); asthma;nerve damage related to diabetes; an itching disorder called neurodermatitis; hyperactivity in children and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); obesityand weight loss; whooping cough; and gastrointestinal disorders including ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and peptic ulcer disease.
Women use evening primrose oil in pregnancy for preventing high blood pressure(pre-eclampsia), shortening labor, starting labor, and preventing late deliveries. Women also use evening primrose oil for premenstrual syndrome (PMS), breast pain,endometriosis, and symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes.
In foods, evening primrose oil is used as a dietary source of essential fatty acids.
In manufacturing, evening primrose oil is used in soaps and cosmetics.
In Britain, evening primrose oil used to be approved for treating eczema and breastpain. However, the Medicines Control Agency (MCA), the British equivalent of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), withdrew the licenses for evening primrose oil products marketed as prescription drug products for these uses. The licenses were withdrawn because the agency concluded that there is not enough evidence that they are effective. The manufacturer disagrees, but it hasn’t published studies yet to prove the effectiveness of evening primrose for these uses.
I know its hard for you to gulp a good H20 but trust me, your body will thank you later! I have been training my body to drink about 2.5 litre of plain water to flush out all the toxins. But drinking a lot of water will destroy you as much as not drinking enough water. So make sure you drink appropriate amount depending on your body weight.
The part when everybody say ‘Caffeine is not good’, yes I admit but how can I pass a great chocolaty taste in my latte. 1 cup of caffeine is equivalent to 3 cups of plain water for you to flush out all the unwanted caffeine in your body! So, make sure you drink enough water!
P/S: I love to have my coffee in that cup! urgh, its sooooo tempting.
I LOVE YOGURT! literally any yogurt or yogurt drink. Calpis is a cultured milk drink. i can say that it tasted like Yakult but in a bigger version. If there is one way to get me go for poopoo, this is the reason. The trick is to drink this half a bottle per night, so 1 bottle per 2 nights. Of course, you can see the result as fast as you wish but eventually.
I tried! I TRY TO LOOK FOR ALMOND MILK OR ANY OTHER MILK BUT I failed. The only milk that I can find is this and among all other brand, Dutch Lady is one of the famous and trusted brand in Malaysia. I have 2 ways of using this milk; one, is to wash my face with the milk and second, is to drink every morning and night. I don’t know if its acceptable to wash your face with milk but it works on me. Let me know what you think.
