The Luxury

Not having to rush off for work as before, I find, have given me the luxury of pampering myself, particularly my skin.

I am one of those who do everything at the very last minute and this include waking up. Woke up just in time to put moisturiser and off I dashed. I applied sunblock, powder, eye liner and lipstick in the car. I am the weird one who curse the green lights.

But now I have all the time I want. Even the kids are pampered. Batrisyia is lathered with generous helpings of lotion all over her. I massage her every morning before she goes to school. Even put on moisturiser/ sunblock on her.

Facial wash is not a rush anymore. Taking care to exfoliate all the time. Putting on the mask every three days. Lover never get to suffer the masked face, for I do it when he is not around. He is back home to a clean, exfoliated face with a hint of gloss. (Wei dory aku dah beli gloss. Ada rasa strawberry. Lickilicious). Serum, night cream, moisturiser, sublock, spots corrector. All in a days work.

And I have so much time to apply lotion to the most neglected places. In a dry country like this, lotion is your saviour. Ohh look at those calves. Are they scaly? Isk isk isk. Even my man's calves are not spared.

I pumice and moist the heels as well. It was so cracked up. It can even be used as sand paper. Perhaps one of these days I will even perform full pedicure. Interesting..

Let's not forget the anatomy that abide the rule of gravity. Massaging for the extra firmness and hope oh pray god to delay the droop. Massage not only for the vanity but for health.

Never too early to start for the teenagers.

Never too late to start for the mature woman.

Good if you are breastfeeding. Eases the flow of the milk through the ducts.

If you are on a weight loss programme, remember it will shrink too and worst it deflates. HORRORS. Start toning. (you know who you are you lucky thing)

For massage techniques refer here and here.

For health care refer here.

The bliss of not rushing to clock to work..

Silalah jealous. Sila. Silakan.
