Weekly Question # 14: Beauty Basics

This week’s question from Julie:


What are your facial or beauty regimens that you do before you go to sleep?

I’ve come to realize the value of caring for my skin a few years ago, before I left the oh-so-young-and-sweet-sounding twenties stage. I probably picked it up from my mama, whom I fondly remember slathering her face with Nivea cream (used to come in those blue tins) and Oil of Olay (the light pink fluid). Whenever I smell a lemony cosmetic, I’d always remember her massaging her face with Pond’s cold cream. Not surprisingly, my mama looks young for her age. (Check out this post.)

While others have complicated nightly skin rituals and some need to get the best acne treatment, my skin regimen is quite basic –  cleanse, tone, moisturize. For cleansing, I use Dove facial foam and water. To tone, it’s Pond’s White Beauty Toner. To moisturize, my current night cream is Nivea Visage. In the recent 2 years, I’ve added the regular use of an eye cream – Nivea’s anti-wrinkle Q10 Plus.

After applying these youth potions (and crossing my fingers that they work!), I kiss my four babies (the fourth being the biggest baby of all) good-night, whisper my prayers, and de-clutter my mind of the day’s negatives. Yes, these too are part of my beauty regimen. 😉

Let’s check and compare with others’ night skin rituals here.

The Perfect Spa Getaway

Imagine yourself luxuriating in this hot tub – enjoying the wonderful view right outside your window while sipping some cool concoction… Lay your head back, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and relax. This is the life.

Only, you’re not in some faraway, exotic ( read: expensive! ) island paradise. You’re right in the comfort of your own home spa!

Thanks to fuss-free spa accessories from SpaScenes, you don’t have to spend a fortune to escape to your dream spa getaway. SpaScenes are high-quality water-proof vinyl murals that are installed on the underside of spa covers. Installing SpaScenes is easy, there is no need for special tools. They come in two sizes – panoramic (for spas up to 92″ wide), and full view (for spas up to 95″ wide) – and several beautiful scenes to choose from.

Who would have thought it would take just a few hundred dollars to complete the look of your home spa?

(Well, you might as well invest in a good-quality door lock or a few pairs of ear plugs to make sure the kids don’t ruin your precious hours of relaxation. 😉 )
