‘After Whoo’ Facial Massage to double effectiveness of it’s products January 12, 2011

공진향마사지법

History Of Whoo has introduced it’s massage methods to all customers to be used together with it’s products to double the effects, improving  the elasticity of the skin and diminish wrinkles.


Now, of course this basic massages can also be used together with any other products.  Remember the steps are 1 –> 2 –> 3 –> 4 and back to 1. These 5 steps are to be repeated 3-5 times for maximum effifiency.


In the image, the dots are places where pressure must be applied by pressing on them.


1. Using both palms, starting from the chin, apply some pressure by pressing them on the chin , then swipe them along the jawline, pulling the cheeks up until you reach the temples. When you have reached the temples, apply pressure again by pressing your palms on both temples. This eases tension and maintain the effect of skin’s elasticity.


2. Place four fingers , the first finger placed at tip of the mouth and the fourth finger at the end of the jawline ( also known as the parotid ) (and of course the two middle fingers in between). Apply pressure by pressing on your 4 fingers. Then move the four fingers up – the first finger on the nose and the fourth finger on the temples. Do the same thing.


This promotes blood circulation and relieves fatigue.


Tips : We like to add an extra step here, after Step 2 above, use both knuckles of your middle fingers, press them on the end of the lips to apply pressure, then gently gently sweep it until the end of the jawline while lifting the skin up. Repeat this for the nose – temples section. Make sure that when you are doing this, you are pulling your skin up or ‘lifting’ your skin up.


3. On the forehead, using your fingers apply pressure on the beginning of your eyebrows, then sweep it along the lines of both eyebrows until the temples. At the temples, apply pressure once more, and sweep back to starting position and then towards the nose. This will give a sense of relaxation and stimulate blood circulation.


4. Using the thumbs of both hands – thumbs under the chin, knuckles of second finger on the chin- move along the jawline , applying pressure each time you reach a dot. ( there will be 5 places in total to apply pressure )


5. Repeat from Step 1 again for 3-5 times.


Also at the end of the massage, we like to give the face a little ‘finger tap’ massage. Just place all fingers, and starting from the forehead, tap all your fingers as if you are playing the piano, then slowly move down to your chin.


To enhance efficiency of products :


– After applying each product, always remember to press your palms on your face to enhance penetration of products.


– Before applying products, rub your hands together for 30 seconds to activate and boost the warm Qi of your body.

Top 10 Skincare Items that has Changed my skincare Routine. November 1, 2010

Inspired by Joseibi’s 10 Wonder Products for Dry and Dehydrated Skin, I decided that i would do my own Top 10 list of Skincare Items that has changed my Skincare routine forever.

I would be doing a full-scale review of these 10 items soon.

No 10. Decleor’s Reflet de Purete

Probably my favourite cleanser ever ( used to be SKII’s Foaming Cleanser).  This cleanser works by deep cleansing the skin. It contains essential and jojoba oils, stabilized enzymes, and cotton milk. Your skin feels very soft YET hydrated after cleansing. However, do note that this cleanser is only used in Decleor Spa centres and are not available for retail, but you can definitely find them online or on Ebay. Pores appear smaller right after cleansing.

No 9. DermaRollers

Suffering from acne and cystic acne during my teenager years left me scarred with enlarges pores, and crated scars on my skin. Unfortunately, there is no cream that will solve this problem so when i found out about Derma Rollers 2 years ago, i decided to try it. I have to say Derma Rollers have really helped with my scars. There are different sized needles, used to treat different problems. I will elaborate on the full scale review.

No 8. Skinceuticals Phloretin CF Serum

Skinceuticals Phloretin CF is a preventive, corrective, antioxidant treatment to fight against free radical damage to combat skin aging and reverse sun damage. The Phloretin is for those with oily skin while the Ferulic is for those with dry skin. It brightens the skin and does not break it out, however those with sensitive skin should try this product before buying it.  Patent-pending, breakthrough antioxidant combination of 2% phloretin, 10% L-ascorbic acid, and 0.5% ferulic acid for broad-spectrum antioxidant performance.

No 7. BB Creams

Baviphat-Dream-Girls-Magic-Plus-BB-Cream-SPF30-PA-

I am talking about BB Creams in general and not the Baviphat one. BB Creams has become a staple routine in my skincare since i started using my first ever BB Cream ( which was my sister’s SkinFood Aloe BB Cream ). BB Creams brightens up the skin immediately and covers up the flaws on your skin. The plus side, it is packed with nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants. Downside, it is full of silicones. Still on the search of looking for the perfect BB Cream that will make it into my Top 10 list.

No 6. SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence @ Miracle Water

ii-facial-treatment-essence4314

This product is either a miss or hit for you. Those with sensitive skin usually have a problem with the essence. I started using this product during my teenage acne years, and this was THE product that really saved my skin back then. I had lots of post-acne scars, and my face was full of red spots, and after 6 months of using this product, the red spots disappeared gradually. However, i’m sure that the SK-II WHITENING SOURCE DERM-DEFINITION and WHITENING SOURCE DERM-REVIVAL MASK did help a lot in clearing my red spots. Also to add, the Facial Treatment Mask is one of the best hydration mask ever. You will also notice that your skin becomes instantly smooth right after you apply the essence.

No 5. Clarisonic

The Clarisonic has become such a star in my family that almost all my family members cannot live without their Clarisonic. It cleanses the skin really well, so if you want to invest, invest in a Clarisonic instead of an expensive cleanser. It brushes off the dead skin and preps your skin to absorb your serum/cream. Trust me, the investment is worth it.

No 4. Sulwhasoo’s Overnight Treatment Pack

ufo_f_413023007_370

Overnight sleeping mask and pack are big in Asia but almost none-existent in Western skincare. I came by this brand after being introduced to it by my best friend who gave me a sample of the Overnight Treatment Pack. I loved it SOO much that i bought the full size and since then, it has become a staple step in my night time skincare routine. This overnight pack is formulated with Chinese Medicinal Herbs ( Angelica, Pomegranate, Walnut, White Mulberry etc ). It creates an essential moisture layer on the skin, thus assuring optimum penetration of nourishing herbs while you sleep. And when u wake up and look in the mirror, you’ll be happy with the results : smooooth radiant baby skin and even the pores are less noticeable!  Since then i have bought every single item on Sulwhasoo’s basic skincare range, and it has become the no.1 Skincare brand for me.

No 3. Darphin’s 8 Flower Nectar

da_D308_200

This dry oil derived from 8 exotic flowers around the world Enriched with essential vitamins & Omega 3  & 6. Benefit from the unique blend of 8 pure essential oils:
EVERLASTING to reveal a healthy glow. IRIS to calm and rebalance. JASMINE to promote elasticity. LAVENDER to soften and soothe. NEROLI to improve skin’s suppleness. PATCHOULI to firm and tone. ROSE to boost natural radiance. YLANG YLANG to help relieve stress.

There was a period where i was obsessed with Essential Oils, so i tried almost every single essential oil care from Darphin and Decleor. This one was the winner no doubt! First of all the smell is amazing, and enough to send you to heaven and a good night’s sleep. It also leaves your skin smooth and supple when you wake up. However, it doesn’t quite justify the price, so my advice is that only buy this if you see a very good deal.

No 2. Darphin’s Skin Mat Serum and Lotion

One of the only serum and lotion that really works in controlling my oily skin. This two products are really effective in controlling oil, and not only that they smell really good and feels super comfortable and light on the skin. This is one line that i would buy all the time regardless of the price! Smile

No 1. Facial Massage

skin-home-main

Your hands are really your best friend when it comes to taking care of your skin. Plus, it’s free ! So make good use of this babies. Facial Massage has become such an important step in my skincare routine after reading the Chizu Saeki’s The Japanese Skincare Revolution: How to Have the Most Beautiful Skin of Your Life–At Any Age . I will elaborate more about these on another post.
