3 beauty secret before Chinese New Year 2016
Chinese New Year is on the way, we felt so excited and can’t wait to have more fun gathering with our friends and relatives! If you’re like us, that means it’s time for some serious diet so that we can cheat as much as we want during CNY. Also, some beauty preparation right now shall be ready as we wish to look great during gathering! Sometimes, we just feel so boring when someone asking: “Why you look so tired?” “Wa, you grow fat now!” “Why you have Panda Eyes, OT always meh?” Bla…Bla…Bla, this is the reason why, we need to plan and fighting for this New Year gathering!
Now, before I start giving you guys tips about dietary, I would like to remind all of you that diets are NOT about losing massive amounts of weights and limitation of food intake, it’s about balancing and eating healthy.With that cleared out, here is the first step everyone should take in maintaining a healthy diet. Throw out all the unhealthy and tempting foods and stock up on greens and fruits instead. This works as great motivation for your family to keep in tip-top shape. And for those of you sweet tooth, swap sugary desserts for delicious seasonal fruits. Fruits such as grapes and strawberries work great as snacks! Melt down some chocolate to go with your fruits to funk up your snack. Yum! If you do not know what to prepare for your meals, take advantage of all types of greens such as cauliflower, lettuce and broccoli to produce a creative and crunchy salad. Different dressings for your salad are sold in every market, head out and pick some up! Some examples of dressing to create and tasty salad are Balsamic Vinaigrette, Creamy Blue Cheese and of course, the classic Mayonnaise. There are infinity types of salads, go crazy with yours! Eating healthy is extremely important. It improves health, mentality and prevents unnecessary sickness. Make slow changes in your diet and eventually you'll be in the best shape you've ever been. A healthy diet is the key to happiness and fitness. Shop your favourite grocery at Aeon Supermarket or shop that nearby. Make sure to get in hand on fresh stocks as major of the foods I mention above are short shelf life.
Healthy, yummy snacks for this whole month!
Our skin reflects our health and beauty. You might appear with new dress that looks so colourful, but guess what the truth is; people will focus on your skin condition more than your dress. Your skin is your outer beauty forever so why not start giving it some good care? Besides, it's CNY and it's time to get skintastic for the festival! Take two showers a day for guaranteed hygiene! Make sure to use lukewarm water instead of steaming hot water. Use body soap and scrub your entire body! Don't forget to scrub behind the ears and under your nails. Try out YOKO Green Tea Spa Salt Shower Bath as it is the mixture of both shower cream and Spa salt scrub together. Superb suitable lazy doll like us during bath time! We should take extra care for the skin on our face as that's the main attraction. The products that I would to recommend for cleansing your face are Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser and Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil. Some people might not spend much on cleansing products. But, if you often stalking beauty information, you might notice that cleansing play the most important role during skin care routine! They are doing great jobs in removing dirt and oil from your skin. As well as your daily sunscreen or makeup powder, both you need to clean really well so that your skin can breathe during night time. Rinse off with lukewarm water. After cleansing, you might want to close off those pores by toning with Klairs Supple Preparation Toner (if you have better budget) to prevent dirt from getting into them and able to deep moist your skin during day and night time. Superb love the floral scent in the bottle of Klairs toner, it recall my memory like I’m inside luxury beauty salon. If you are looking some budget friendly toner, try Thayers!

If you ask me to recommend one, let’s try Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream as this is a good match for it! Don’t forget to use face scrub at least once a week.

Now, with all of that done. It's time for some fun...Fashion! We always aim to look our best during Chinese New Year. For me, shopping for CNY clothes is the best pre-festival preparation! There is so much to buy. Tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, bags, accessories... It is all so exciting! There are plenty of sales around the mall before and during CNY. Since it's only a once a year festival, let's go crazy! Cheong Sams are a big deal during CNY. If you don't know where to get those, try browsing through my favourite online fashion zone such as Zalora, Twenty3,Toki Choi, Room8008 and many more! Uniqlo, H&M, Forever21 and many fast fashion brands that you can name it, take a look and shop with fun!

If you think that wearing traditional wear during CNY is too mainstream, try sequins or florals. Go red as a symbol of luck or gold as a symbol for wealth! If you're wearing plain colors, throw in a splash of red such as a red lip, red shoes or red accessories. If you are out of ideas on what to wear during family and friends gatherings, simply browse through Pinterest and you'll get plenty of ideas. CNY only come once a year. Do it with grace and glamor!
