beauty products & you

2-3 weeks ago, I bought a tube of facial cleanser and a bottle of toner. that was my first time of buying and using them. my first trial, i should say. i never used those kind of beauty things before my age of 21 years. and i only had the opportunity of trying it after my 22nd birthday. i couldn't believe that i could still survived my teen life. haha~

the thing that initiate me to buy such things was my face. "stressed" face!!! lots of pimples said 'hello" to my face during my study leaves for Professional Exam II, and I couldn't do anything about it. before, I simply used the shower foam, no matter where it is, and even for my face. Haha~ Actually, I didn't really bother about those stuff.. And I don't know the effect of such action.. Haha~

However, things started to change during my lotsa free time holidays.. lotsa time to experience new things, I supposed. that was the thing that initiate me to use those.. however, I don't use them as scheduled. Facial cleanser and toner should be applied twice daily. And me? I often missed the morning ones. I'm not one of those "strict discipline" users. Haha~

My experience after using those?
Pimples remain the same, still. As one goes away, one drives in. Haha~ so bad, right? Maybe the brand isn't good enough for the functions.. Or maybe, my skin is too "degil" to let their "pampered pimples" go away.. haihz~
owh yeah~ my skin started to dry too, and i did wonder why.. and finally, i managed to get the answer tonight.. the answer is so simple!!! Simply because I didn't buy the moisturizer!!! Haihz~ what to do, rite?? that was my first trial.. So, have to get one tomorrow.. or else, my skin will become drier and even drier...

okies.. now, it's time to learn on 7 steps on how to apply the beauty products of yours.

Step One
Splash your face with warm water and make sure your hands are clean.

Step Two
Squeeze a small amount of your cleanser into your palms or to a soft cotton washcloth.

Step Three
Apply the cleanser to your face using a circular motion. Make sure you cover all the areas – forehead, chin, nose, cheeks and neck. Massage your face for about a minute. Allow the cleaner to penetrate the skin for a few minutes.

Step Four
Rinse thoroughly the cleaner with lukewarm water. Make sure that you have removed all traces of the cleanser. You can use a face sponge, a muslin cloth or cotton pads to remove the cleanser. At the end rinse your face with cold water to shrink the enlarged pores and to improve blood circulation.

Step Five
Dry your face with a facial towel.

Step Six
Once you have cleansed your face you should begin with the next step - tone your skin. The toners remove the traces of makeup, dirt and oil that your cleanser may have missed. They also reduce pores, eliminate oil and refine the skin. What they do in addition to making your skin feel tighter, is prepare the skin for the moisturizer.

Step Seven
Always apply a facial moisturizer after cleansing your face. A moisturizer should always be applied to a clean and toned face. Take appropriate amount and apply it to the face , avoiding eyes area. Dot moisturizer, an inch away from the eyes to avoid irritation.
