Hey all πŸ’“
Consequently , I think all of us do have a skin routine involving cleansing the face. Even-though some may not implement the whole basic skincare routine but I am sure at least you'll wash your face every time you take a bath right? Hence, here are some basic information about cleansing your face the right way. 
Face wash is one of the most important routine on the face and beauty skincare. All day long, our face has used and applied with various cosmetics products or even from outdoor harsh pollution. Therefore, when it is time to wash your face it should be given proper attention.

This is the key to your basic skin care. Before making any choices about your cleansing products, you need to know your skin type so that the product you choose is appropriate and suitable for your skin. There are generally five types of skin: 
Read more below. ⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣⇣
➤ Normal - balanced in terms of skin moisture, oil and durability.
➤ Oily - the skin looks oily and shiny after a few hours of washing. Choose a low pH (acidic) cleanser to facilitate the process of oil removal.
➤ Dry - skin patches or rash on the skin, difficult to see after a few hours of face wash. Avoid face washes containing alcohol and certain oils.
➤ Sensitive - often feels itchy or tense and is prone to allergic reactions when exposed to certain chemicals. Avoid fragrances, oils or chemicals that can irritate the skin.
➤ Combination - some of the face will be oily, usually in the T-zone. While other parts are dry or sensitive. Choose a gentle face wash and rinse with warm water.

  • Facial cleansing - The first step in ensuring that your face wash is effective in your skin care plan is to see how effective it is in cleansing your face. Of course, face wash works to clean your face. But does it wash your face effectively? Test the effectiveness of your face wash by taking a piece of cotton and putting on a toner. Apply to the skin. If there is residual dirt on the cotton, this means that your face is not completely cleaned by your cleanser.
  • Does not dry the skin - when the skin is dry, the oil glands under the skin will detect declining levels of skin moisture and will release more oil to compensate for the loss of skin moisture. Then the skin becomes greasy and the chances for acne appear very high.
  • Clean the pores in your pores - choose a deep cleanser. It will wash your face down into the pores. Of course, we cannot avoid having pores especially for those who have oily face and love to wear cosmetics every day.
  • Moisturizing - Face wash should also work on moisturizing the skin other than cleansing. If you sit in a 24-hour air conditioning, the skin will become dry. So you really need a face wash that can regulate oil levels and maintain skin's natural moisture.
  • Be gentle - chemical cleansers that have too strong a chemical effect on the skin. Avoid using face cleansers that can erode pigments and skin. This will cause the skin to become thinner and exposed to sunlight.
  • Contains fragrances and preservatives - these ingredients can irritate the skin and cause allergic effects such as Paraben or Phenoxythanol Methylchloroisothiazolinone.
  • Ideal pH - in optimum skin care, you need to have a pH cleaner. Alkaline facial cleanser can irritate the skin. Choose a slightly acidic face wash that is approximately the same pH as our skin's pH.

πŸ’¦πŸ’¦Cleansing foam cleanses the face - foam cleansers do nothing but even dry skin. Many foam cleansers also contain many chemicals. So choose a creamy cleanser or liquid cleanser to improve your skin
πŸ’¦πŸ’¦Organic and natural face wash is ineffective - in fact organic and natural ingredients are more effective in treating, cleansing and replacing the skin. This is because they are more easily absorbed by the skin and do not cause any side effects that can damage the skin.

So is the face wash that you are using now suits your skin? If not, change it. Try and error to get the one that really suitable for your skin. 
Choose a face cleanser that suits your skin type so that the moisture and beauty of the skin is well maintained. 
Eventually when you are on the basic cleansing routine and when you have identify what skin type you have. You can add on others cleanser too ~  Such as exfoliating cleanser or facial scrubs. And you can also use cleansing tools too for more deep clean routine. 
I'll discuss with you all later on others routine on my next post ok?! Take care πŸ’“
Well thats all for now ! Thanks a bunch for reading my blog !! I hope you enjoy as much as I do πŸ˜πŸ˜˜

Hello my dearest readers πŸ’“

How have you've been? Seeing now that we are all trying to adapt to the new 'norm' life after the MCO due to Covid19 pandemic outbreak. It is advisable that whilst we are able to travel anywhere we wish, we must stay abide by the rules and regulations made by the Ministry's Standard Operation Procedure (SOP). Always remember to wash your hands, maintaining social distancing for the time being, No mass gathering and so on. 

Thus following the government’s statement on the Recovery MCO phase which
begins from 10th June until 31 August and the re-opening  of interstate travel, most Malaysians will certainly be thrilled to get out and travel domestically once more. Aren't you excited too? I am eager to go the any beach right now. I need my Vitamin D and put on my 'Beach' mode πŸ˜€

Hence what I need now is a reliable and trusted travel representative that can provide me the best services by suggesting to me the most worthy, enjoyable and affordable price and packages for my holiday treats. Therefore, I would like to suggest Sedunia Travel to you all. 

Ready to take Malaysians on an adventure with the introduction of their domestic travel campaign, In MY BackyardSedunia Travel has a plethora of local travel packages that showcases the beauty and appeal of our very own country.

Domestic travel has always played a significant role in Malaysia’s GDP, contributing RM60.4 billion to the economy in 2018. The sector also accounted for 3.5 million jobs that year. However due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the travel and tourism section suffered an estimated revenue loss of RM3.37 billion between January and February 2020 alone. Just within 2 month time. Dreadful isn't it ? 

With a colourful blend of history and culture, stunning natural attractions, exciting vibrant cities and
mouth-watering local cuisine across its many states, Malaysia is a hidden gem just waiting to be rediscovered once more during this time. Sedunia Travel is excited to show travellers what Malaysia has to offer through the In My Backyard campaign. A series of articles featuring Malaysia’s famous laksa, Island Getaways and more have been curated to inspire Malaysians to see and explore their own country.

These are available on The Malaysian Traveller for traveller’s reading pleasure. Click on link to read more. ⤻

Sedunia Travel’s social media channels will also be filled with fun filters, videos, postings, quizzes and photos from fellow travellers and partners to highlight Malaysia’s many hidden treasures. Travellers are encouraged to follow and hashtag #MYBackyard #SeduniaTravel in their travel photos to spread more inspiration and joy amongst fellow Malaysians in the coming months as Malaysia comes together to recover its local tourism.

“Malaysia has much to offer and we should be proud of what our own country has to offer. After almost three months of lockdown, a short escape to a local destination is what many need right now. To build confidence in travelling once more amongst travellers, we work very closely with our hotel and airline partners to ensure that stringent guidelines are implemented. Through our ready-to-go travel packages around Malaysia, all the travel arrangements from transport to accommodations to activities are taken care of by us. Of course, guests can let us know if they wish to customise their plans. We even have honeymoon packages ready for newlyweds.”

A holiday in Malaysia appeals to those who have already been to the more popular Asian countries, as well as those looking for adventure travel. The country offers trekking, bird watching and some of the best diving spots anywhere in the world, where you can swim and dive with sea turtles, rays and small sharks. 

Some of the best beaches anywhere can be found here too, many of them rarely visited and you may have the sand all to yourself. Many tourists visit Malaysia for the beautiful temples and shrines, as well as the affordable shopping. 

Good buys are pewter, silk and jewelry and the huge night market in Kuala Lumpur attracts thousands of shoppers. Although progress still needs to be made, eco-tourism has also become popular in Malaysia.

Sedunia Travel continues to adhere to the government’s SOPs and guidelines to ensure a safe and wholesome travelling experience for their customers and partners while doing their part to support local tourism. 

Our front-liners have worked tirelessly for the well-being of the entire nation in the past few months and we want to thank them for their efforts. It’s now up to the citizens of Malaysia to uphold their good efforts even when they are travelling.

What makes Raph & Remy so unique and extra special than others ?
First of all, what captured my attention was the beautiful babies in the pictures on their website. Little that I know was that these 2 cutie pies are Raph and Remy themselves hence the company brand name. Their parents (owner of the company,of coz!) Mr. Eric Okumu and Mrs. Tiffany Okumu set up the family business in Singapore, focusing on high quality, chic and beautifully packaged baby products at affordable prices. 

They also set along a goal and determine to support and simplify the introduction into parenthood for others out there who are starting their own journey. A long journey starts with one step and they also include essential items that can be relied on 7 days of the week; becoming loved and treasured for many years to come.Tell me now that's not special and unique enough for you?

It's special plus you get to add an extra touch of personalization to your thoughtful selected gift. It's a perfect gift to get for your loved ones around the world, celebrating the births of a new precious angel.
