guestcontributor1Today, I would like to introduce Adlena, our new contributor on MsGlitzy.com. Some of you may be familiar with her – after all, she had shown us her makeup pouch 2 Christmases ago.

Adlena recently became a Mum and she will be sharing with us some Mummy beauty and fashion tips on the blog. I’m very excited to read her posts! I hope you’ll enjoy them too.

Five months after I had my baby, Keri, I must say I’m missing my glowing pregnancy skin.

In my early stages of pregnancy I was warned of the perils of being pregnant; be prepared for crazy breakouts on your chest and neck like I had, recalled one fellow mummy friend. I had freckles popping up all over my face!, said the other.

Much to their chagrin, I was one of the few lucky ones: for the whole 40 weeks, my skin had never been better. My “kuali”(read: oily wok) face was non existent and I could get by entire days just with translucent powder, blusher and eyeliner. Yep, no concealer, no foundation whatsoever.Thank you Keri for making mummy pretty, I would say quietly to myself as I rubbed my belly.

Now that she’s out, I’m not saying my skin took to a sudden worse, but it’s just not as radiant and oil-free as before. No thanks to late night feedings and just general ennui and fatigue of having to manage a small business while juggling the needs of an infant and doing household chores on a daily basis.

So what can I do to hide at least some of those imperfections just so my clients and co-workers won’t think that I’m going to crumble in front of them from exhaustion just by looking at my face?

I have six skincare saving graces:

I believe the rose is probably one of the most well-loved floral amongst womankind. The rose scent is used often in beauty products, the colour is associated to different shades of pink, rose oil helps to refine skin texture and possesses aromatherapy properties that calm and soothe.

What not to love about them?

Following my previous post on sportswear, I wanted to share about some beauty tips while working out. During those days when I was a student in school for PE (short for physical education) classes, I didn’t bother to slap any product on my face or attempt to keep my skin clean and hydrated.

But times have changed, here are five tips and tricks that I would incorporate when I head out for my weekly jog.

It’s easy to stay fit and fabulous!

I have been feeling quite good about my skin and my current regime and thought it would helpful to share the products I am using in a single post. Having gone through a rough patch in terms of my complexion (pardon the pun) last year, I am happy to see that my skin is regaining the smoothness and suppleness once again.

A brief introduction on my skin type – I have combination skin, whereby my T zone is rather oily but the other areas, in particular the cheeks and the under eye are rather dry. I have occasional acne problems, and due to age and probably lifestyle changes, my skin has become quite sensitive over the years and a slowdown in metabolism means that scars take much longer time to recover.

I have been curious about Jurlique for a while, having heard that they are a natural skincare brand, i.e. probably pretty effective for sensitive skin types. I had the opportunity to experience the new Rose Moisture Plus With Antioxidant Complex Skincare range and I think this range helped cement my good impression of the brand.
