Psst It's Our Little Secret

If only there was no pollution and dirt,


If only there was no acne and any other skin problems,


If only I lived in a village full of trees and flowers,


I wouldn't have to treat my skin!


lol

Wasn't born with a perfect skin, therefore I have to work harder to achieve clear skin! My secret to relieve stress after a week with full of hectic tasks and appointments is to properly give it a day to rest at least once a week. Skin can become stressful as well! So maintaining it everyday is really necessary! I know my skin is not perfect like some girls, but it can be much worse than now if I dont take care of it well


After all, Jakarta is full of dirt and pollutions. There were times when I had holiday for months and didn't go out as much as I used to when I go to campus, and seriously my skin was much better. Crazy right? Using my daily skin care routine is not enough for me. Exfoliating and masking my skin once a week is needed to keep it free from dead skin and tired skin

Mask Time!


I have dozens of masks stored in my refrigerator, waiting to be used once a week. Sometimes twice if I feel so stressed and skin needs to be pampered. Usually I exfoliate it first with my Cure Natural Aqua Gel  then finish it with masking. I love My Beauty Diary Masks Series as it's affordable and gives nice result! Currently in love with their Sake Type! It moistens my skin perfectly!


And I just came back from bath, an my hair usually becomes dark when I just washed it, no I dont dye it back to black lol in fact I'm planning to get ash blonde soon!!! *random*

I live in Tangerang (well, semarang now for my college), and it's so hot hot hot there. Never thought Semarang is even hotter tho. My T area are very easy to get oily. So there will be acne here and there. But I never do anything special for my skincare. Hahahaha. I just use a normal cleanser and toner, and face wash. I use face mask every other month. So far, it work pretty well to keep my acne to a minimum :-D

Fenn said...

on totally unrelated note, your pajamas looks really pretty!!

Honestly, I wash my face like once in a day :sweat:

I'm just too lazy to do any skin care.

And wow? you have dozens of masks?? I envy you so much right now stell!

I can't never store anything properly in my kost-an refrigrator, someone will steal it in no time. :reallyangry:

stellalee_92 said...

Hey Flow! You live in Semarang? I guess it\'s really humid and hot there! X___X I\'ve been to Yogya and gosong banget disana! But the tan in Indo is dull because of pollution! :-( Hate it!
If you are an acne prone skin, you shall try any skincare that contains tea tree. I heard it helps so much. What\'s your face mask!? :-D

stellalee_92 said...

LOL It\'s satin, to prevent wrinkle wtf hahaha
Really?? :O you should at least wash it twice a day, in morning, and in night [after back at home]
I was lazy too so I had so many pimples back then T__T but now i realize that it needs to be taken care, so yeah lol
well yes, I purchased it with my own money. Usually my friend comes to Indo once a year, so I ask her to bring me a year supply LOL its cheaper if you buy it directly on their own country :b
ahhh D: That\'s pretty bad. You can try other type of masks then, not the paper sheet like mine. Can get a creamy mask probably, Fenn?

Flow said...

For now, yes XD Semarang is hot. Hot and dusty. Oh my god. I never get a tan tho. I don't know, but my skin is weirdddd. Really easy to get burnt by sun so I always use sunblock and jacket everywhere. I guess that's why I never get a tan huh :idk:

I heard it too! But I never really try it tho. Hahahaha. I just use Garnier lightening peel off mask. Just to brighten up my face after being exposed to the sun for a long time :-D

stellalee_92 said...

I can bear the hot in fact, but I just can bear the pollution! I feel like if I go out for 5 mins, then once i reach home skin will get dark, and once rub it, it\'s all DUST! FML HAHAHAHAHAH
really? I want to have tan in fact! It\'s sexy! :heart: I dont wear jacket and sunblock unless on my face, but the darkest shade that I\'ve ever owned is NC30 lol
ahh I see, tried garnier but sometimes its sticky, though it brightens up the skin :-)

Fenn said...

I feel really sorry for my skin right now. cause after I read this post, I stole my sister's toner and wipe my face with it.
and the cotton pad is like very very very dirty, I think it's kinda brownish.
damn, turn out washing your face once a day is not enough to clean BB cream's residue :sweat:
holycrap, why wouldn't I think of that one before!!!!
now that you mention it, creamy mask is a very good option! I should really get one, ASAP!!

stellalee_92 said...

well, a good skin is needed to get nice make up. Foundation will glides easier, and you wont need to put too much anymore. Make sure you clean it properly Fenn ^_^ otherwise it will lead to acne and blackheads!
and FYI, if you have BB Cream, I recommend you use make up cleanser first, as BB Cream is quite similar to foundation. Remove the make up with it. Then clean your face with facial wash to keep it nice and clean. You will see big improvement by only changing your cleansing routine, trust me!
Hahahaha, sure go ahead!!! :D

Chino-chan said...

Agree with u.. Polution in Jakarta is so bad!! :hypnotized: My skin is getting dull easily and sometimes have some acne :( the worst part is the acne scars is really annoying.. T ^ T it fade away after several months..

I love to use yogurt mask, easy to use, because I buy a big pack of yoghurt then store it in the refrigerator.. can be used as mask and can be eaten as well :-))

stellalee_92 said...

I know! Acne scar is really annoying!!! T___T Can\'t even bear with it! But recently I get a good cream to treat acne scar, will review it later ok! Probably will be helpful for you :-)
Ahh, I sometimes buy it too! It softens skin nicely! ^___^ Know the trick from bubz :heart:
But because I dont like yoghurt, I only buy a small pack lol always praise how people can eat it, since its so sourrrrrrrrrrrrr :cry:

Fenn said...

turns out I still have lots more to learn :eek:
I don't even know BB cream was like a foundation, I've always thought it was like tinted lotion or something :sweat:

oh anyway I can't believe you went out without jacket, here in Surabaya, not even one college girls dare to go out without jacket LOL. They even wear some kind of nude socks with flats shoes :-D :-D

Monica said...

You inspired me to take a face mask, so I am now sitting here with a mask hahahaha

stellalee_92 said...

yay im inspiring monica! ROFL
what mask do you use dear? :heart:

stellalee_92 said...

really? hahaha.. I dont really care about being tan, but jadi belang sii kalo telanjang ROFL
What I care is not to get dull tan since its gross and fugly! >___>

ohlala said...

Drink lots of mineral water (i nvr go outside w/o my bottle of spring water) and eat lots of protein riched food (lean meat, egg white, soy (tahu tempe! ^^), yoghurt) fruit n vege. Keep ur skin beautiful by watching what goes inside ur body! it's more important than any expensive skin/mask treatment product! :-*

putri kansil said...

kalo untuk kulit very oily acne prone pake yang sake ini cocok ga stel?

Marissa said...

I use My Beauty Diary masks as well. Have dozens left...zzz. an cream masks. Kok kayaknya ga abis abis yah. After this I'd try yogurt masks instead cos it's more natural :)

stellalee_92 said...

I also take care of my body from the inside as well ^_^ this is just one of my secrets ;-)
seems that you take care of your body well! :heart:

stellalee_92 said...

stellalee_92 said...

hahaha, yes, buy a box is cheaper than a sheet so i stock boxes LOL

tikka said...

Polusi di jakarta memang tak tertahankan >.< dulu pas bolak balik naik bus aduuuh muka ga ada cakep2nya. skrg aja sering di rumah jadi cliing (gr2 obat dktr sih) aku suka pakainya masker acnes (lumayan cocok ^^) biar segerr :laugh:

stellalee_92 said...

sama nih, diriku naik busway ke kampus, alamak deh mukanya T_T kalo lagi liburan doang baru bagus kulitnya, kapankah jakarta kita bersih :-(
oh yah? diriku gak pernah coba acnes sih =D manfaatnya apa, tikka?

Monica said...

I make em myself, mostly actually! The best one I know is made of egg!

Other times I use avocado and honey!

But sometimes I use random mask I have lying around. I don't have any favorites as I don't really feel they do anything with my skin than making my problem worse haha. But I guess it's because of my sensitive skin!

tikka said...

masih mending dirimu busway >..<. Kalau maskernya cepet kering trus abis pake rasanya seger, minyaknya ilang tapi lembab ^^ ditulisnya juga buat sekalian bersihin wajah (deep cleansing) :laugh:
Oia, km pernah ntn cara cuci muka biar kulit lembab dan seperti kulit bayi ga? hehe

stellalee_92 said...

How do you make mask from egg??? :-O
Have you tried Etude House Lavender Mask? Its really relaxing and suitable for sensitive skin as far as I know :-D

stellalee_92 said...

tapi dempet2annya gak nahan tik :cry:
enggak, emang gimana caranya say? :-D

tikka said...

sayang di youtube uda ga ada >.....<
cuci muka dengan air hangat2 kuku dan akhiri dengan air dingin bukan es.
begitulah, intinya harus menyanyangi kulit dan cucinya perlahan2 hahaha, jariku ampe pegel ribet pula :sweat:

Chinochan said...

waiting for the review then.. really need something to get rid this acne scarsss... grrrr

i know from bubz too hehe.. well I guess it depends on the yogurt's brand maybe? I tried cimory and it's not too sour.. :) sometimes I add some fruit slice or pour it into my fruit juice. tasted better ;D

btw I'd swatch my OPI nail polish ^^ http://pururuworld.blogspot.com/2011/10/review-swatch-opi-zom-body-to-love.html hope you like it :)

stellalee_92 said...

sure sure! :yes:



haha i just never really like yoghurt, unless frozen yoghurt one because its not as sour as those brands lol

lovely swatch! :fingersxd:

stellalee_92 said...

haha diriku cuci muka cuman dengan air dingin biar segar XD jakarta panasnya gak nahan sih :-(
akan dicoba mulai sekarang, thank you tipsnya :heart:
