Skin Types :





Grooming Etiquette
Achieving a Healthy and Attractive Appearance with Natural Methods
Your skin isn’t producing enough natural oil to keep your skin feeling hydrated & moist.

Tight feeling in your face after cleansing.

Feel the need to use a thick moisturizer, as your skin soaks product up quickly.

Pores are minimal.

You look slightly aged & show signs of wrinkling before your peers.


The most common of skin types, show signs of multiple conditions.

Oily T-zone.

Can show signs of dryness in some areas, usually cheeks & forehead.

Oily :
You have a shine to your appearance.

Your pores are quite visible.

Break-outs are common.

You feel the need to blot of reapply make up during the day.

The skin is producing far too much natural oil.

The 5 Biggest Face-Washing Mistakes

Picking the Wrong Product

Right cleanser should completely remove dirt, makeup, and grime

Find one that does the job and is neither too gentle nor too harsh .
Overdoing It

Washing once or twice a day is good
Overdoing it will cause an overproduction of face oils.

Giving your skin a break from the cycle of products is healthy from time to time.

Not Rinsing Well Enough

Skimping on rinsing leads to residue build-up, which can clog pores and dry out skin.

Most commonly neglected spots:
The jawline
So show them some love !

Towel Rubbing

Pat, don’t rub.
Tugs and pulls your skin, which puts your elastin at risk.
Designate a clean, soft towel to blot your fresh face

Using the Wrong Water Temp

The reality is that pores don’t have muscles to open and close. While hot water may feel good on your skin, it can mess with your skin’s natural, protective oils.
Lukewarm water is the best bet to cleanse gently yet effectively.

Natural Masks
For All Skin Care:
Egg White Face Mask

2 egg whites, separated from the yolk and placed in a bowl
2 tablespoons of plain yogurt
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 2 minutes

Separate the egg whites from a couple eggs and place them in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of yogurt (do not use flavored yogurt!). Mix them up and apply to face. Leave on face for a few minutes then rinse face in warm water, followed by a warm washcloth.
Oral Hygiene


1 mashed avocado

3 tablespoons of raw cocoa powder

2 teaspoons of raw honey

1 tablespoons of cinnamon.


Mix all the ingredients up

Gently massage the mixture onto your face and leave it on for about 25 minutes.

Rinse the mask off with warm water.
Myth: hot water opens pores and cold water closes them.
Regular cleansing will remove surface dirt and grime, but only a facial mask will actually draw out impurities from beneath the top layers of the skin.
Facial masks can be used between once and twice a week, depending on the condition of the skin.
Save money
Avoid harsh chemicals with these simple masks

Eucalyptol, menthol, and tea tree oil can help prevent gum inflamation.

Tea tree is an efficient antiseptic that kills bacteria fast. This is especially important for gum disease sufferers since we know that it’s caused by plaque, which is a bacteria.

Good Diet Habits

1. Drink about 1200ml to 2000ml water per day.
Our body is made out of 58% to 67% of water. When the body loses moisture, there will be dry skin. The skin loses its elasticity, and even causes wrinkles.

2. Eat food that are rich in vitamins
Vitamins play important role in prevention of skin getting older and maintaining a delicate skin.

3. Eat more foods containing iron.
People with rosy skin need adequate blood supply. And iron is one of the main element of blood.

4. Increase collagen and elasin-rich food intake.
Collagen causes cells to become full, thereby filling the skin, wrinkle reduction; elastin allows people to enhance skin elasticity, making the skin smooth and elastic

Nutritionists explained that fiber can slow down the rate of digestion, therefore continuing to the vascular supply of carbohydrates.

This way, the body gets a steady stream of energy.

Since oatmeal has a high fiber content, the body can make glucose levels maintaining at a high level.

Therefore, we will not feel hungry too soon and suffecient energy will be available to get through the day.

Benefits: Fresh tuna are rich in Omega-3 , therefore it can keep the skin moist to avoid dry skin.

One study showed that eating calcium-rich foods such as yogurt, etc., can significantly improve the situation. If you eat three small cup of yogurt or two cups of milk a day, you can make abdominal pain, fatigue, feelings of irritability and other symptoms have abated, because calcium can ease muscle tension, regulating endocrine effects.
Allow me to demonstrate how to properly and correctly perform the above yoga exercises.

How to attain a better overall appearance
As mentioned eailer dieting may get you slim and in shape to fit in your clothes.
However, what’s the point of slimming down being too skinny and not putting on any muscle, point is will you want to look better by being flabby loser?
By exercising and doing some form of workouts will make you gain muscle, filling those loose gap you have on your arms and legs

Burns calories.
Promotes strength, endurance, and resistance to injury and illness.
In addition, exercising helps to lose more weight as well as retain and even build more muscle if you do it correctly and properly.

There are two form of exercises i will want to introduce:
1. Cardio
2. Body weight exercises

Helps to make your skin tone healthy and more vibrant by enabling better blood circulation.

Makes you lose weight as it burns away calories mainly those unhealthy calories you intake daily.

Beginners are recommended to do any form of cardio related activities at least twice a week. Slowly improving on the distance and speed each time.

Unfortunately, as effective as it may be people always tell me cardio is too tiring and boring to them.

However cardio can actually be lots of form and not just running, sometimes you might be already doing cardio in your daily activities.

Here are some examples of cardio that you didn’t know and it can be quite fun.

Household chores (Vacumming, mopping, gardening)

Power yoga (Intense stretching under a high
temperature environment)

Jazzercise (Dancing to the beat of a song

5 ways to turn housework into a WORKOUT

1. Vacuuming lunges/lifts
As you push the vacuum forward and back fit in some lunges with it, alternating legs and stretch them out as far as you can go. For the times when you need to use the extension part of the vacuum, hold the vacuum with one hand and perform over-head tricep dips (alternating after a few sets each).
3. Worktop press ups/knee ups
While you are waiting for the kettle to boil for your green tea (or other hot beverage) do standing press ups leaning on the edge of your worktop counter. Obviously make sure that the counter is dry so you don’t slip! If you have time left then also try some knee ups by using the corner of the worktop.
4. Dirty dishes calf raises
As you wash the dishes stand with your feet hip width apart and rise up onto your toes and hold for 5-10 seconds, then repeat. Hold your butt in as you rise for an extra little butt workout.

5. Floor scrubbing ab sliders
As you wash the floor on your knees hold the brush/cloth with both hands and push your arms out in front of you, cleaning the floor while contracting your abs each time you lean forward. As you move straight forward and lean side to side you are engaging your whole core.
Body weight exercises

Helps to build muscle and as the same time help to loose fats that cause one to be flabby.

Makes you stronger and healthier, improving your posture also.

Girls that dont want to look too manly can use weightlifting to help ton themselves, making muscle visible but not till protruding(maybe too much for some girls).

A win-win situation as you get to loose fats and as well also build muscle to make yourself look build when you dress up.

Body weight exercises

However, Body weight exercises isnt as easy and simple as cardio.

There a lot of different workouts out there that are effective and produces significant changes to your bodies if you do it properly.

You need good training programs to train your body entirely.

Seasonal changes make your skin oily or dry, but generally somewhere in between.

Your hair does not look greasy or dry if you skipped shampoo for a day.

Styling products or hair treatment do not tend to irritate your scalp.

Solution for dry hair
The detergents in shampoo can be drying, so shampoo every 2-3 days

Use a humidifier in cooler months or dry climates

Massage a few drops of jojoba oil onto your scalp before bed

Combing your hair everyday
Combing your hair helps in distributing the natural hair oils and make your hair look shinier and healthier

Handling hair carefully when its wet
Wet hair will snap at the smallest pressure. An ideal way to dry hair would be to squeeze excess water and towel dry

Letting your hair breathe
At least for a few hours a day, keep your hair free of clips, rubber bands or hats to release the pressure around your head to let it regain normal blood circulation

Cleaning brushes and combs
Hair brushes and combs are breeding grounds for germs. Sterilize brushes, combs and plastic accessories once in a while by dunking them in hot water with antiseptic to prevent scalp infection

Examples of physical stress/trauma
Car accident
Severe illness-cancer, even the flu

These stress/trauma can trigger a type of temporary hair loss called telogen effluvium which is usually noticeable 3-6 months after the trauma.

Hair life cycle:
Growth phase
Rest phase
Shedding phase
Your face is dry and so is your hair, from roots to end.

Your scalp is itchy, and might have powdery white flakes.

It tingles uncomfortably when you apply certain hair product and hair colour.

Examples for dramatic weight loss
Crash diets
Stress on your body resulting in vitamins and minerals deficiency
Eating disorder-anorexia, bulimia

What to do:
DO NOT PANIC, the body system will eventually correct itself and hair would start growing again

Blow-drying hair after every wash
Most damaging hair treatment as regular blow-drying causes hair to be brittle and break off easily. If must go for a cold-dry instead of hot one.

Applying conditioner on your scalp

Over-conditioning your hair or applying conditioner on the scalp will make your hair look lifeless and greasy.
It will even attract a lot of grime and dust if you are an outdoor person.
Always start with a small amount of conditioner, add more if not enough.

Not trimming
Get a little trim every 6 to 8 weeks, even if you are growing your hair. This keeps split ends, frizz and breakage at bay.

Not cleansing
Never let dust settle on your scalp. If your hair feels itchy after a long day in the outdoors, make sure to wash it before you call it a night. Instead of scratching your scalp (that could lead to infections)

Using soap on hair
Chemicals in soap are not meant for hair and may damage your natural texture and shine

Curl fingers of both hands.

Bring nails of both hands together in contact and start rubbing them, leaving out the thumbnail.

Rub continuously for 5-7 minutes each time; in the morning and at night.
