To keep your cheeks firm and taut, apply moisturizer and then swipe 6 times on each cheek with your thumb and third finger upwards from bottom of cheek to ear. Then, hold your thumb and second finger together and form an ‘O’ shape and swipe from chin to ear, 6 times. 6 is like the magic number isn’t it! Then push downwards (as shown in the picture above) from the back of your ears to the base of your neck near the collarbone to drain all excess fluids and toxins from your lymph nodes.
I’ve been doing this lymphathic massage method on my face and eyes every night since the workshop and (I hope I’m not imagining things) but my face seems to be smaller and less bloated from water retention!
Here’s another tip: your body repairs all your major organs including your skin between the magical hour of 10pm – 4am. So, the ideal time to complete your night time skincare routine is by 10pm so that when your body starts working on your skin, all the goodness is already there waiting to be absorbed. This is the 2nd time that I’ve heard it already. 10pm is a little early for me, so I’ve not tried it. Do try and let me know how it works out!
Also, we learned from Louis that our skin’s future is ours to control. SK-II actually provides in-depth consultations that recommend you the right products so that you can look forward to better quality skin for as long as the next 20 years!
And that’s Nicholas, Mark, Hong, Joyce and Alvin. 🙂 My sweet posse!

And we ended the night with the usual carolling session.
‘Tis the season to be jolly, fa~la~la~la~la, la~la~la~la! Yipee! It’s that time of the year again! My favourite season of the year…Christmas!! I’ve been playing my CD of christmas carols to death. Haha. Have you all done your Christmas shopping yet? I’m almost done! Tiring affair…all that jostling with the crowd, and brain-storming for gift ideas. I hope everyone will like what I got them. *fingers crossed*
Before I go on, here’s wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. May you all have a wonderful holiday season filled with love, warmth and happiness…and not forgetting loads of yummy food, and wonderful presents! 🙂
Christmas celebrations started early for me this year. I’ve had 2 rounds of celebrations with different groups of lovely friends already. Here are some snaps to share!
Had a pot-luck party with my girlfriends from Japan Airlines and here’s what we brought:
The cupcakes were so cute, we had to take pictures with them. haha.
And more cam-whoring with cupcakes…
Once again, I always love the time spent with the girls…:)
Day after was a Christmas dinner organised by our party diva, Noah. Held at Margarita’s! I’m not a huge fan of Mexican food, but I’m now a convert. The food is fabulous!
The party of 8:
If you’re wondering what we are trying to do, Noah our supermodel has 2 specific pose tasks for all of us…the back-break, and stomach-ache. And there you go….
Before I end this post, just want to share that a bunch of us Kosmic Artistes (May, Claire, Jaymee and me) lent our hands to M.A.C a few weekends ago to help sell their range of Viva Glam lipsticks, glosses and lip palettes. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of lip colours go to the M.A.C Aids Fund. This fund supports men, women and children affected by AIDS/HIV globally. The Viva Glam lipsticks and glosses are on sale 365 days. There’s a huge range of lovely colours available, so please lend your support by getting one from any M.A.C counters! 🙂
P.S They make great Christmas gifts!
