So, you're having an ugly touch to your skin? Fret not! I once had that too and these are the things that I have tested.


Bath Gloves are the best. Not only do they exfoliate but the after feel of it is superbly awesome. Yes, you will feel your skin smooth and nice (perhaps rough a little, still) but it really works. I have tried using it on my face as well. No doubt that it hurts but heck, it does feel good. Just suffer the pain for a little while and you will have that nice, supple soft face. What's best is that they are extremely affordable aka. cheap.

Bath Salts are one of my favourites. Just make sure that when you do not use them when having cuts or physical bloody injuries. Salt stings!

So far, I would recommend Watson's Revitalising Body Scrub and the Yoko bath salt products (Milk, Lavender, Papaya and Yoghurt flavours).

When it comes to Body Lotion, Enchanteur works like a miracle WOW. After applying, you will feel that supple skin feeling. It's not expensive at all, compared to Palmer, Nivea etc. Nothing beats Enchanteur. Good aroma too. Perhaps Johnson's baby lotion could be second on my list but that's about it. Body Shop, Palmer, Garnier are so much less effective.


As I have mentioned earlier, you can try using the glove scrubs on your face but be gentle. A friend recommended this technique to me and well, she was right. Even blackheads can be removed! But after quite some time, say a couple of hours after that, your face will be oily. Just remember to wash your face when it happens. A sum to it: Glove Scrubbing your face removes dead cells good!

This is individual but I pretty much like the Neutrogena face wash (foam pump). Unlike any other face washes that I have tried, it actually gives that moisturising effect to the skin. If you want a moisturing skin, Neutrogena (foam pump) works good.

For those who has acne problems, two of my friends recommended Himalaya's Neem Face Wash. It comes in several packagings and in either foam or gel. And Neem pills. Himalaya uses herbs. Either it's due to hormonal or stress, it works. Cos both friends of mine are having pimples due to those reasons.

Some people just can't use the Tea Tree Oil for treating acne, like me. It gives bumpy reactions to the skin. Minor allergy reactions. I would prefer the old classic Oxy. Still reliable.

As for oral medication, Doxycycline, an antibiotic is used to treat severe acne. I only realised this after the doctor told me that this antibiotic that I took, initially to replace ampicillin, works for treating acne. That explains why my acne wasn't that bad anymore! Unfortunately, it has to be prescribed by a specialist.

Cracked Heels No More!

Foot filer works the best. Pumice stone? Well, you need the rough ones, not the slightly smooth ones. Beauty is pain. Pain is beauty. Being gentle on yourself to avoid pain doesn't really help that much.

I have never used any of the lotions specifically for cracked heels. Scholl and a new other brands has it though. I keep it simple. I file my heels and I apply the Enchanteur lotion. It works perfectly fine.

So, there you have it. Some of the ideas, ways and methods to a smooth skin. If you have any other methods, please do share it. I'm willing to test it out. Just as long as it's simple though. And if you want to purchase the Yoko bath salt, please do contact me.

      Sugar is great for little cuts and such. The statement among skincare sales is "Sugar adds to while salt takes away." Sugar helps to heal. Salt helps to cleanse. Sugar is even used in some hospitals to help treat diabetic wounds topically. (Isn't that hilarious irony?)
