Know your Sunscreen Series Part 2

Hi Everyone after my first blog post on sunscreens here I’m continuing the topic of sunscreens, If you haven’t read my previous blog stop right here and click the link below.


Now that you have read and understood how were sunscreens made and to read what the SPF numbers stand for, Lets take it further on by knowing what the values of PA +++++ OR Boot Star Rating ***** mean on your Sunscreen tubes.

The UVB protection rating which signifies the percentage of protection the sunscreen gives from the UVB rays is widely known in two types of ratings in this concept the European rating which is the Boot Star ***** symbolised & the Japanese rating which is the PA+++++ Rating. Each of these Stars * or Plus + Symbols mean 20% protection from UVB, so if there are 5 Stars there is a whole 100% protection from UVB.

Now that we have this part of the concept cleared. It’s time to discuss my favourite Sunscreens available in the market today.

Top 5 Favourite Skin Care Essentials


Favourite Mask Combinations

Hey Everybody,
I been so busy lately managing my businesses and I’m struggling to get things going but in the mean time, I have a rule that once or twice every week I have a small pamper session at home after work. It does’nt consist of a lot as I’m really tired when I get back from work. So basically I’ll make some hot mocha put on an episode of how I met your mother or grey’s anatomy or castle or white collar depending on what my mood is like. Then I would put on a face mask and paint my nails while watching an episode or two or maybe three 😛  sitting like a bean bag on the couch. LOL!

So Yesterday I had one of these pamper sessions and I realised I do a lot of multi-masking and it would be fun to share what my favourite mask combinations are.

Combination 1  For Dull, Oily and Congested Skin Days

I like to use the Origins Charcoal Mask on my nose to cleanse pores I sometimes switch that with the Glam Glow Clearing Mask and pull the white heads out, and the Glam Glow Flashmud Brightening Mask (Orange) on the rest of my face, It works like a exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and instantly make my skin feel smoother.

Eye Treatment

For the days I feel a bit more lazy to put on a mask and wash it off. And My eyes feel tired and baggy. I use the Sephora Green Tea Eye mask. Green tea is an antioxidant that quickly revives your tired looking eyes and also gives it a lift. This mask is a sheet mask so application and removal is no problem #lazygirlsbestfriend 😀




Combination 3 – Sensitive and acne days

You know those days when your skin is so sensitive that a charcoal mask isn’t an option and it also has few papules (Red pus filled pimples). I use the Skeyndor Normalising Mask while dotting my face with the Mario Badescu drying lotion on the papules.





I know a lot of you guys love the nourishing masks I do too, when the weather is slightly chilled and my skin tends to go on the drier side so I’m listing a few of my favourite masks  that are more hydrating.
