Beauty is skin deep

"A girl may not have the best facial features but when her skin is flawless, she's beautiful."

That was my Mama's advice to me back then when I was a teenager. At thirteen, I remember my skin breaking out with pimples on my forehead. She gave me all of these products ie cleanser, toner and moisturizer for me to apply to my skin day and night. Being a lil Mama's girl, I listened to her and I'm very glad I did. It became a routine, that I implemented into my lifestyle. No matter what, I always cleansed my skin and religiously slathered my face with moisturizer and any beauty products that was supposedly good for my skin. Of course, the pimples disappeared and my skin was back to my normal after the teenage hormones settled down. Lol! But I still took care of my skin!

When I got to my twenties, I maintained the ritual of taking care of my skin. Except this time I had added eye cream, masks, anti-wrinkle/aging, sunscreens into my vast collection of skincare products. Hey, prevention is better than cure right? :P

In my mid twenties, I realized that I had to start eating right because facial beauty products can only do so much. I started buying organic foods, eating more and more vegetables and drinking at least 2 liters of water a day.

With the busy lifestyle of being in the entertainment industry, there are days when my skin can get pretty stressed with all the make-up, long hours and strong lighting that I have to endure. It makes it a little bit harder to maintain good skin but I do it relentlessly anyway. And it paid off! Thank goodness. Alhamdulillah.




I start with a good cleanser. I cleanse my face first thing in the morning, and night time before I go to bed. Of course, on days that I have shoots, I will cleanse my face after the shoot. Best to stay away from heavy make-up.



Right after cleansing, I apply toner. This goes on before anything else ie moisturizer, serum, eye gel etc



Like I mentioned earlier on, prevention is better than cure. Its never too early to start making sure your skin doesn't sag down to your chest.



My beloved moisturizer. I'm blessed with dry skin hence why I use moisturizers for dry skin.


I never ever leave out the eye gel/cream. The skin around the eye is the most sensitive hence why you should always take care of it. Eyes are the windows to the soul after all :)



This is essential for everyone. I cannot stress how important it is to protect your skin with sunscreen. I love this particular one especially as it has "skin tone' base on it. On days when I'm not required to wear make up, this is perfect. Its better than having to put on foundation or powder on your face.



This has got to be my favourite product from our Felicity skincare range. The exfoliating face scrub. It smells wonderful, and it scrubs away all those nasty dirt from your face, leaving your skin as smooth as a baby's bottom. I'm in love with this product!



Mama came up with these products a few years ago. My family has always been fans of organic products, making sure that we stay as natural as possible. We have a whole range of other products of course. If you're interested, you can check them out at www.blueoakvalley.com.

Here's to an organic life to us!




Thank you Mama, for the awesome advice!


Organically yours,

SF

Hi sazzy,
Just recently I started following you on instagram as suggested by my eldest daughter and today I finally have to chance to visit your blog too. I like it when people who blogs writes in good English and I must applaud you for this. Don't get me wrong, what I'm saying is when you blog, use good proper language be it English or even BM. Just look at our former prime minister Tun M - it is either totally all in BM or all totally in English. Good for you, my dear.
Anyway dear, I have already added you to my blog list at my blog. I must say that yours will be my regular read from now on. Feel free to read my blog too - nothing interesting though, I am just a regular makcik.
Take care. I think you are beautiful - inside out.
