Sunday Tip #10

Every Sunday I shall share here a beauty tip that I’ve read or heard about, and leave my comments or thoughts on it. Please feel free to leave your views, too! :)

Air conditioning may keep you cool in the hot, humid weather (Which is how the weather has been lately, to me at least), but it can also dry out your skin. And temperature fluctuations from air conditioned places to non air conditioned places can wreck havoc too. So the best way to circumvent this is to keep hydrated and moisturised! That means using a body lotion for your body and a good facial moisturiser for your face. Also, if you’re sleeping in an air conditioned room, leave out a bowl of water or use a dehumidifier and ply on a moisturising sleeping mask (Like the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX) or a heavier facial moisturiser.

Personally, I’m happy using facial oils :P At night I apply a pump of Melvita Sweet Almond Oil (Compared to few drops in the morning if I need extra hydration) on my face before bed. For my body, I alternate between Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins The Way Of The Bath Matcha Tea Body Lotion or the O.P.I Avojuice Skin Quenchers in Vanilla Snowflake (Which I have reviewed here), but I like to apply them right after showering.


L’Occitane Lavender Hand Purifying Gel

Those who know me will know that I have minor OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), and apart from obsessing over cleaning my room and arranging my things the way I want them to be arranged, I need to keep my hands clean. As a result, there’s always a bottle of hand sanitiser in my bag, along with antibacterial wet wipes (When applicable, especially when travelling). However, hand sanitisers tend to dry out my hands, so either I have to cut down on the frequency of my usage, or add a tube of hand cream to my bag… which adds to the weight of my bag so it’s not that ideal.

Enter the L’Occitane Lavender Hand Purifying Gel. I checked it out earlier during my outing with Sukie of A Little Bit Of Everything and Hanny of Hanny’s Random Ramblings, but I only got it later when I bought my second bottle of L’Occitane 5 Essential Oils Repairing Conditioner (Which I mentioned about and reviewed here) because I needed a hand sanitiser to bring along to my trip to Labuan and also because I have read the mention about it here from Beautyholics Anonymous.
