Update (29 May 2013):

Here are the winners – Stephanie, Elaine and Ruo Xuan. I will contact you girls again for collection details.

I will be having an international giveaway soon. Look out for my blogpost by next week! :)

~~*♥*~~

There are many ways to feel healthy and beautiful from the inside out. Being a somewhat beauty blogger, achieving healthy skin is constantly on my mind. Yes, I am not blessed with awesome skin naturally. Somehow, I have to put in lots and lots of effort to achieve healthy and radiant skin.

I received this cute bundle from Dettol last month which includes their latest shower range – Dettol Radiance. I spy yummy goodies from Carpenter & Cook! Truly appreciate Dettol for putting up such a pretty package for us! :)

I believe that beautiful skin comes from within. Whatever we do, eat or apply on our skin is extremely important. So today, I will incorporate Vitamin B and Vitamin C found in Dettol Radiance in this special 3-course meal created by yours truly to help achieve healthy and radiant looking skin. Read on to know more about the recipes and how to win a Dettol hamper!


I’m sure the brand Dettol is no stranger to anyone. Positioning itself as a germ killer personal hygiene brand, it has extended into categories such as hand wash, kitchen cleaning, laundry disinfectant liquids, shaving creams, hand plasters and body wash.

Research in Dettol’s laboratories has found that cleansing one’s skin with ordinary beauty body wash is insufficient in helping skin regain the radiance it deserves. Dettol is here to help with their latest range of body wash – Dettol Radiance, which is formulated with a unique blend of vitamin B3 and C, the elixirs for beautiful skin. Vitamin B3 is regarded as the secret behind younger and firmer skin while vitamin C is lauded as the perfect antioxidant to ensure healthy and supple looking skin. Coupled with Dettol’s renowned germ protection capabilities to deep cleanse and remove invisible germs and impurities from within, it allows skin to truly reveal its inner radiance and shine with a healthy glow.


Here’s what I love about the new Dettol Radiance:

1/ The pearlescent shower gel has a fairly thick consistency that lathers and foams up pretty well. Personally, I love to lather with the help of bath puffs. Foam baths makes one feel calming, refreshing and pampering.

2/ This range cleanses and purifies my skin really well. It doesn’t dry my skin unlike soap and is perfect for even sensitive skin.

3/ Even better, it leaves a soothing floral scent on the body and lingers for about an hour or so. The familiar medicinal smell is absent from this range.

4/ Contains salicylic acid that helps control sebum excretion and prevent body acne.

5/ Doesn’t cause any skin irritation or make my skin feel taut.

Dettol Radiance is available in body wash in 250ml, 625ml and 950ml and retails at S$3.20 to S$10.90 at all leading hypermarkets, supermarkets and pharmacies in Singapore from May 2013.

Moisturizing and masking is an important step. The best time to moisturize your skin is right after showering. Hot showers will somehow damage your skin and the pores will be opened. So applying moisturizer immediately will make your skin absorb it more effectively. For the 2nd course, I’m gonna introduce this skin quencher mask that helps to moisturize and brighten the skin at the same time.

What you will need:
1 avocado
1/2 fresh lemon
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of honey

Benefits of the ingredients:
Avocado – Contains vitamins B and E and works as an antioxidant. It also contains rich and essential nutrients to nourish and condition the skin.

Lemon – Has a high content of vitamin C, an ingredient commonly used to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tone. A natural astringent that tightens pores and brightens the complexion.

Olive Oil – High in vitamin E which soothes and heals skin. A natural moisturizing ingredient often used for it’s anti-aging benefits.

Honey – A natural source of antioxidant making it a perfect ingredients for age prevention. A natural humectant so it locks water into the skin keeping the complexion hydrated; the antibacterial properties benefit acne-prone skin by reducing breakouts.

Instructions:
Mash the avocado till smooth. A little tip here, dump the avocados into a plastic sheet and use your hands to mash them. Combine the mashed avocado, lemon juice, olive oil and honey. The whole procedure only takes about 5 minutes or less. Apply the mixture to your face or body and keep it on for 10-15 minutes. Wash off and voila! Your skin will feel awesomely smooth.

The final product – Avocado Lemon Mask. You may refrigerate the mixture and keep it for about a week. Do not skip the lemon juice as it will help prevent the avocado from oxidizing and turning brown.

Say yay to smooth skin! :D

Having a healthy diet is important. I do eat junk food but also ensure that I maintain my veggie and fruit diet daily. Cabbages, kangkong, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and tomato, honeydew, mango, watermelon, guava are some of my favorite veggies and fruits respectively. Fruits and vegetables contains lots of essential vitamins, minerals and fibre which are good for our health. Thus, it is important to have at least one serving of fruits and veggies per day.

Oats in a jar is a popular recipe that has been circulating around Pinterest. I was intrigued to try out something new. Hence, I have come up with this recipe that contains oats and some of my favorite stuff like lemon curd and yoghurt!

What you will need:
1 bowl of oats
2 cups of yoghurt or milk
1 cup of lemon curd
1 banana
1 orange

Benefits of the ingredients:
Oats – There are many benefits of oats which includes but not limit to lowering cholesterol, stabilizes blood sugar levels, reduces high blood pressure, keeps bowel movements regular and helps you lose weight.

Yoghurt – Contains vitamins B, D and a good source of calcium and protein. Great for digestion, it also helps to condition constipation, UTI and diarrhea problems.

Lemon – Has a high content of vitamin C, an ingredient commonly used to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tone. A natural astringent that tightens pores and brightens the complexion.

Banana – Contains vitamins B, C as well as fiber, carbohydrates that help regulate the body’s digestive system by helping to maintain regular bowel movements.

Orange – Similarly to lemon, it has a high content of vitamin C. Apart from lightening sun and age spots, vitamin C’s antioxidant power contributes to a healthy immune system.

Instructions:
Mix all the ingredients, leave the jar in the fridge overnight and it will turn out to be a really delicious treat! Best consumed within 3 days. You may also add some milk or yoghurt drink to add more moisture.

The final product – Oats with Lemon Curd & Yoghurt. Awesomely yummy! I love sour stuff but it could be too sour for some people. Alternatively, you can remove lemon curd from the ingredient list and just add milk or yoghurt to the oats, it will taste equally yummy! Now plonk on your couch after showering & masking and enjoy this delicious treat! Slurps! :)

  • Kenneth Teo Says:

    Hi, i would like to try dettol radiance because i’m surprise that an anti-bacterial shower gel could nourish skin & keep acne at bay. I suffer from bacne (back acne) so the salicylic acid in the shower gel will prevent my bacne from getting worse. Most of the acne body wash in the market causes dryness on the skin plus i really hate the medicinal smell it gives. And Dettol Radiance has so much foam to play with! *mochi mochi* plus floral scent & even suitable for my mom’s sensitive skin (which means i can share with her) 😊

  • Ruo Xuan Says:
