I’m back after almost 2 weeks of vacation! I hope you guys dropped by the blog while I was away. I made sure to schedule my posts to bring you fresh beauty and fashion stuff. Well, if you haven’t read them, it’s time to back read! Hehe! I’m leaving again this week for another getaway. Trying out something new again! I can’t wait!!! For instant updates, check out my Instagram (@lush_angel).
Anyway, summer is getting hotter and hotter here in Manila. Here’s another casual style idea that’s great for weekend trips.
Milk is known to have lots of health benefits. It’s loaded with nutrients and it’s also for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. And remember when our moms asked us to drink milk before we sleep? It’s because it’s rich in Choline, which helps us get good sleep.
These are only some of the nutrients we can get from drinking milk and I can go on and on. All these contribute to our overall health and wellness, which is why we should never stop drinking milk. If you ask me, yes I still do! But drinking one glass of milk a day doesn’t just make me healthy and fit, it also does something good to my skin. You’ll see the difference when you start to drink milk regularly. Skin looks and feels healthier.
Well, essentially if we eat healthy food, it will show on our skin. But do you know that you can actually use milk on your skin? This is why you can see milk in a lot of skincare products. It just shows how effective milk is in giving you healthy, nourished skin.
Today, let me share a DIY Facial scrub using milk. It’s very easy. Don’t worry, there’s no cooking involve. Haha! Just mix, mix and you have your scrub! Your beauty regimen is just in your kitchen.
One of the things I hate to pack whenever I travel is towel. It’s just too bulky and heavy. It takes up too much space inside the bag. Well, I discovered Atlas Towels during our Sample Room BBQ getaway and I feel it’s very useful for travelers, like me. It was love at first use! Haha! Honestly, when I first saw the towel, I didn’t want to use it. It’s not the usual towel we’re all used to. It’s microfiber, which was like a cleaning cloth for me. And when I first tried it, it didn’t feel right. My skin was looking for the long fibers of a regular towel. But then, I was impressed. Why?
I’ve had this Pond’s Overnight Pimple Care Gel for quite a while now, but I never really had the chance to use it until last week. It has a concentrated mix of Glycolic acid, Aloe Vera, and Salicylic acid that reduces swelling, redness, and dries up the blemish – overnight. The Glycolic acid exfoliates the skin to remove the dead skin cells, while the Salicylic acid unclogs the oil, dirt, and bacteria within the pores. Does it work? Read on.
Before I share my beautiful staycation experience at Discovery Country Suites, let me show you first my favorite spot here. Who wouldn’t fall in love with this outdoor jacuzzi overlooking the Taal lake?! Despite the fog, the view was perfect. I wouldn’t deny, I hoped for clear blue skies, of course. But as you can see from my photos below, the view was still spectacular!
