Do you touch your face too much?

I do notice lots of people have the bad habit of touch their face! Even me myself do some times! :P
"Touching your face" can also mean "working away at" blemishes. Squeezing blemishes makes things worse, so this type of "touching your face" isn't good. Picking at blemishes in general is not good, an, again, there is the matter of introducing bacteria.There’s a reason why your parents told you to wash your hands before dinner. Our hands do so much work for us throughout the day that we’re constantly picking up bacteria without even realizing it.
If you’re like me and have this face touching habit, then what you can do is just touch your face less.
And if you really do need to scratch and itch, or touch your face for whatever reason, use the back of your hand which contains significantly less bacteria.
No longer touching your face with the palm of your hand will not cure your acne, but it is a piece of the holistic puzzle for your acne cure that will make a significant difference if you touch your face a lot.
By removing all toxins and bacteria from the outside-in, then you’re preventing a bunch of new pimples from ever forming.

Bio-essence BB cream

Just received the three BB cream from Bio-essence. In case you're not sure what BB cream is?
BB Creams (Blemish Balm Cream) originated from Germany and was initially prescribed by dermatologists to patients who had undergone laser skin treatments to soothe redness and cater to their sensitive skin. The trend of using BB Creams caught on in Korea when celebrities started using them to create a natural and dewy finish.
BB Creams have multiple skincare benefits which include whitening, sun protection, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, moisturizing while providing coverage for the skin.
The important way of using BB cream - Lots of people applied too much of this cream & end up it become too white & ashy in tone. What I normally do is to squeeze the cream on the back of my hand than apply by using finger tips bit by bit onto face, blend the cream until it almost disappear to the skin. It help to smooth out the skin texture, a light to medium coverage & at the same time with SPF protection.

I went looking for this SPECTACULAR SPARKLE – EXTREMELY LONG WEAR CREASE-RESISTANT eye colors but heard from the Lancome counter girl saying Singapore won't be carrying them!!! I'm so disappointed & was looking forward to try out the texture!
Anyway this range of eye colors was inspired by minerals and their infinite nuances of iridescent light, this product is the new generation of ultra sparkling eye shadows. It opens a new horizon of light-catching colors and twinkling effects. The innovative texture is extremely long-wearing due to the type of polymers used. It is also easy to apply and doesn’t crease. The amount of mother-of-pearl makes the colors more intense than ever.
