what i love the most from blogs is you get a lot of information about almost anything...current events, historical facts, stories (fiction or non-fiction), poems, how-to's and of course my favorite (and for sure everybody else's)...beauty tips! :)
starting yesterday, i decided to try these beauty tips on myself. they may seem to work with others, but they may not work for me...and being the SUTIL person that i am, i wanna try them myself. and who knows, i might get great results too (fingers crossed). and again, i do hope my derma isn't reading this...hhehe
yep, tomatoes. (first, oil and now tomatoes? what's next, jheng!? ) hehhee, i'd do anything for a great skin you know! who wouldn't?
i was reading a beauty forum and i came across this site, which has absolute great beauty tips that make use of natural ingredients. fruits, vegetables, herbs...name it! and i've learned that tomatoes is really great to get rid of those stubborn blackheads and whiteheads that lead to clogged pores and eventually pimples. i love tomatoes that sometimes i eat them like an apple. i also drink tomato juice, or tomato sauce as my friends would call it each time they would see me drinking a glass of it. i would joke by telling them that i ate pasta noodles by itself so i'm taking in some sauce so i can say i had pasta for lunch. :P
I drink green tea. I used to drink at least 3 cups everyday but i've been too lazy lately that i havent been doing it for sometime now. we all know that green tea is a great anti-oxidant and it also helps in digestion and speeding up one's metabolism (love handles, be gone!).
I came across a post from a forum that she uses this as a toner...and that it helps her maintain her already smooth and pimple-free skin. She even mentioned that it helps her have rosy cheeks. At first i was hesitant because she's chinese...and well, chinese are known to have really white and smooth skin. But she swears by it and other girls already tried it for themselves and they say that it's really working for them. I have a couple of green tea bags at home, so why not--coconut!? tee-hee...
so there...i'm on an all-natural skincare kick these days. i'll post more details about each one of these and update you with the results!
