THAT TIME I INJURED MY THUMB | Eeked

Youtube It was tragic - till today (a month after the incident), there is still a bruise on my thumb and I lost the opportunity to collaborate with a nail brand on a video production which could possibly settle me with a good pay. Watch to know what happened!



That Time I Started Vlogging | Eeked

I've always been the type that struggles to find the right content to talk about on my channels - mainly because I'm very particular with the things I say and post. But when I let you guys to decide what I should do, things just got so much easier. Many of you told me that you want to see more vlogs, which is strange because I may look like I have a lot going on, but really, most of my vlogs are REALLY not glamorous and most of it are of me in my room with ZERO makeup. So, if you are interested in that part of my life, please click play :)

Root Remedies - I'm in love with this shit

Beauty





You may have seen me talking about Root Remedies on my Snapchat (@eeked) and Instagram, and let me tell you, it's worth the hype. It doesn't take long for me to fall into a true relationship with this one not only because it's made of natural ingredients (which is already a catch on its own), but how it's ingredients are catered to combat almost every skin type.

All of the products from Root Remedies are natural and contain no synthetic chemicals and fragrances which explains why it doesn't feel dry or stingy like some "natural" products tend to give me. I often reach for the Masala Chai Tea Moisturising Body Scrub because it is really - the.best.body.scrub EVER - I've done a few snaps of it and it has gotten many screenshots so I'm guessing you are curious. The body scrub has a rough texture and it helps to scrub away the dead skin at the same time leaving the skin with this layer of moisture goodness after rinsing - it's strange, you'll need to try it to understand. Same goes to the Spiced Tangerine Body Scrub, the difference between the two is that this one MELTS almost like sugar on the skin and it leaves a layer of oil/wax kinda thing on the skin making the skin feel ultra amazing and moisturised.

Another one that I've been using constantly is the Black Seed Oil and Coconut Oil. I use the Black Seed Oil on my body to moisturise, whereas the Coconut oil is used on my hair to soften the damaged ends. I find that the Black Seed oil doesn't smell too good on the hair as compared to the Coconut oil but it works REALLY well on the skin. You only need literally 1 to 2 drops of the oil for wherever you are applying - which is great!

As you can tell, I am head over heels for Root Remedies and there are many products from them I've not tried but if you want to test them out, you can go over to their website at www.rootremedies.com to purchase!




Tips to Healthy Skin | Eeked

Beauty



A lot of people don't know that the skin reflects the food you eat, your surroundings, your exercise habits and of course the nutrients you feed to your skin - it's almost like how you keep your body healthy. Below are some tips that might get you started on changing up the little bits and pieces of your lifestyle - but let me start with a skincare routine that has kept my skin looking healthy and resulting me to have that glow from within.









I've always loved products that have natural ingredients - anything in relation to plants or fruits, basically, I think they are the best form of ingredients. Say hello to Cuepido Cosmetics, which is known to formulate without parabens, phthalates, triclosan, sulfates and gluten. Hence, products are safe to be applied on the skin and have lesser possibility to allergies.

Luminous Beauty Essence - If you are the kind that likes a glowy finish to your makeup, this is something you should pick up to be applied under your foundation. Best part about it is that it has Algae extract in it which is awesome for hydration boost and helps to minimise dark spots. I enjoy using this in the morning especially, because it absorbs perfectly and results to super healthy-looking skin.

Price: RM250 for 120ml


Rich Mineral Moisture Gel - It's almost crazy how lightweight and breathable this moisturiser is. The last thing you need in a moisturiser (especially for during the day time) is the thick, oily and heavy layer of oil on the surface of the skin - been there. It's amazing how much good moisture and nutrients this gives to the skin at the same time making you feel like you're not putting any skincare on at all.


Price: RM280 for 50ml

Luminous Beauty Serum - This is actually a lovely addition to the range. It's probably my favourite from the entire range, maybe because it smells like dried oranges and grapes - super fruity! This serum protects the skin against free radicals (free radicals are unstable atoms caused by pollution, sunlight and help to reduce hyperpigmentation from sun damage. It's like feeding your skin with fruit juices everyday :) I love it!

Price: RM210 for 30ml

Done with the skincare, here are some tips on how you can switch up your lifestyle to achieve healthier-looking skin.

TIP #1: Stay hydrated! Or get a bigger water bottle. 
You've heard it too many times, you don't need me to tell you how many litres of water you need to drink a day. But if you are clueless, it's 2. The only problem that we are all facing is HOW to get ourselves to drink that 2 litres. I find that the easiest and most bimbotic way to solve this problem is to either get a bigger water bottle. For one, so you do not need to keep refilling, especially when your office desk is a long walk away from the water dispenser or simply get a cute/nice/pretty water bottle so you don't mind using it more often. 

TIP #2: Fill your stomach with fruits when you're hungry
Eating the right kind of food can really help to improve your skin condition. I always find that whenever I'm eating healthy, my skin reflects it too - try to not consume too much fried food or fast food but instead, whenever you're hungry or feel like munching, be sure to always stock up some fresh fruits to munch on! 

TIP #3: Clean your sleeping area often
Sometimes, it's not the skincare that causes your sudden breakouts, it could simply be that you've been sleeping in a garbage can the whole time. Sleeping is important not only for the eye bags but this is when your skin takes a rest and to regenerate - that's why you call it a beauty sleep. When this happens, be sure to keep your area clean and dust-free, do not eat on your bed (no breakfast in bed unless you have a maid who can change your bed sheets for you every day) because you don't want to sleep with insects and you don't want so much dirt on your face.

TIP #4: Remove your makeup before you workout
Really, I've seen many girls punching bags with their makeup on. I really don't understand the logic. One, it's not comfortable. Two, your makeup will (100% will) smudge - so that kinda beats the purpose of putting on makeup anyway right? Anyway, it's always good to bring along cleansing wipes with you to remove your makeup efficiently before you head to the gym. When you gym, your body generates the heat which will open up your pores and the makeup with sip into your pores and will possibly create pimples.


I hope this article inspire you to pay more attention on your daily habits and choosing the right skincare for your skin concerns.
