Golden Rules for Your Skin

   Category: Uncategorized |

Hey Churpers!

Do you realize that most of us have a skincare routine that we stick to out of habit it’s all about a repetition of steps you have to do day in and day out?

How-To-Look-Beautiful-And-Pretty-Without-Make-Up-1024x640

Some habits are essential in order to care for your skin and have a radiant complexion all year long. However, some people tend to make mistakes in between because they actually do not realize those actions can damage their own skin.

Whatever your skin type, here are some golden rules for your skin!

Falling Into Bed with Your Make-up On

TR-STHI-000197

No matter how exhausted you are from a long day at work or if you have just attended the best party ever, never ever fall asleep with a full face on. Make up has the power to make one feel fabulous, but going to bed with it on will only cause regret the day after. It clogs up the pores and is especially worse for acne skin. Instead, if the whole 10 step regimen is too much come 2 am, cleanse your face with a towellette such as Simple’s cleansing wipes.

Not Cleansing Properly

You may be diligent in makeup removal, but ask yourself this question:

“Are you using the right cleanser to put your skin in optimal condition for overnight renewal?”

Look for a cleanser that contains the right ingredients. Things like antioxidants for protection, salicylic acid to help clear your pores, and witch hazel, which acts as a natural astringent.

Not Washing Your Sheets & Pillowcases Frequently Enough

Don’t be surprise Churpers as pillowcases accumulate a build-up of reside from things like conditioner and scalp oil that can clog your pores on your face over time. NEVER EVER keep your pillowcase for a month or more. You should change your pillow case at least once a week or more if you are more acne-prone.

Not Getting Enough Sleep

Most of people nowadays do not realize that getting a good night’s sleep helps your skin to look its best. When your skin does not get the optimum rest, it becomes dull and you’ll have under-eye circle just like a PANDA (Panda is cute but for you to have a pair panda’s eyes, it’s not cute at all lol).

Not Wearing Sunscreen Every Day

Don’t get confuse dear Churpers as sunscreen it’s not just for the beach. Instead, the best protection against skin aging is a good sunscreen defense. Your skin can be harmed by constant sun exposure, whether or not you see a burn. Sunburn is an immediate reaction, but damage from the sun occurs over a lifetime. You will regret not having worn sunscreen when you look at your skin compared to friends and family who have worn daily sunscreen 20 years from now.

But that’s not all Churpers! Let’s hear 5 tips from our top Alphas on their daily skincare routines:

1. “I make up pretty much every day plus sometimes during work, I have to have really thick make up on me. Removing it cleanly is really important for me. So I actually spend a long time to remove my make-up and clean it at least twice to three times with normal make up remover then oil base make up remover and pre cleanse then cleansing milk”.

2. “Next, because of my eczema and sensitive skin, I drink lots of water a day apart from fruit juice. I don’t drink juice everyday but whenever I can like for example during lunch or something. I will try my best to order something healthy like apple juice or dragon fruit or even better, tomato or mixture of different green veggies juice”.

11351673_945132738866704_1940287198_n

3. “I also started eating lots of supplements to enhance n boost up my immune system :) for example like vitamin c, folic acid and like algae because I have very very bad blood system due to my genes so I believe that if u take care of because inner body, u will also help your outer beauty.”

4. “Due to the hot sunny weather, I always make sure that I do face mask at least twice a week to hydrate my skin :) Apart from applying lotion and sometimes my medicine due to my eczema. So it’s like double work for me because of my eczema and my sensitive skin.”

5. “Lastly, hmmm…. Because I’m growing? Hence, I have lots of stress due to my workload n I travel very often. I’m most likely to have acne on my skin like very easily. Even now actually. Lol… So for me, I think it’s best to do facial at least twice a month. I do 2-3 times a month. And it does make a difference compared to last time when I only did once a month. Then apart from that, choose your right beautician and right product. Do plenty of research before consuming it. Not just listen to your friends. On top of that, I apply pimple cream on my acne too before sleep”.

All her tips are worth trying Churpers as Venice can always pull the no make-up look as she has the flawless skin ever :)

3. “I love essential oils, especially the good pure therapeutic grade kind”.

These tips may sound like it is mainly targeted for women, but trust, guys, you should be taking some pointers from it as well. Good skin instantly makes you look well-kept and polished, and at the end of the day, you only have one face. So be sure to take care of it! :)

Till next time Churpers, have an amazing week ahead! :)

 

 



[#ChurpmyWIN] Churpremiere of The Walk

   Category: Uncategorized |

Will Philippe Petit, a tightrope walker achieve his dream walking through a connected wire between the World Trade Center towers?

Keep your feet on the ground Churpers as ChurpChurp and Sony Pictures Malaysia are ready to bring you a true story and unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Catch it before its official release at the #Churpremiere of #TheWalkMovie this 21st October 2015.

BVCT0356 The Walk KeyArt-LR_(Quad)_3D

Synopsis:

Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) in TriStar Pictures' THE WALK.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film is a true story based on Philippe Petit’s book “To Reach the Clouds,” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the young dreamer who dared the impossible: an illegal wire walk between the World Trade Center towers. Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.

Papa Rudy (Sir Ben Kingsley, right) teaches Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) how to use a cable tensioner in TriStar Pictures' THE WALK.

Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan.

Thanks to So Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story.

Featured Alpha of the month: Atilia Haron

   Category: Uncategorized |

Holla Churpers!

Last 15th September, she turned 41 but her body age is only 22 (she did a legit test).

*drumrolls*

That’s Atilia Haron, our featured Alpha of the month! :)

43VyrLePnRDt1

 

Atilia Haron, a contemporary singer and songwriter, produces soulful and contemplative music which deals with universal themes of life and love to which anyone can relate. Atilia has already involved in the music industry from a young age.

Coming from a background with rich musical heritage, her talent was recognized when she was selected as the lead singer for a regional Coca-Cola commercial representing Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore in Liverpool, England when was only 12 years old.

Being the daughter Salamiah Hassan, one of the most renowned jazz and evergreen singers in the country, her mother is definitely her role model when growing up in the industry.

Being in the industry will always be a tough one but her mother has been very supportive and open with the opportunities as she brought Atilia’s with a balanced view of being an artist as this career will not always be glamour but in fact, it requires a lot of hard work and one has to be able to deal with the uncertainties in terms of career growth and future.

As she grows in the industry, she has trouble in holding her notes and even panting heavily during stage performances back then. Ever since that, Atilia realized that she really needs to start taking her health seriously and maybe do some exercises.

So, she decided to do YOGA! Yoga is basically a physical, mental and spiritual practice, which aids in shifting gears of the body and the mind into a positive direction. It all started about a year ago, when she received her cortication from Vikasa Yoga Retreat, Koh Samui, where she was trained for 200 hours under the Konstantin Miachin. It was indeed not an easy task, especially when she did it during bulan puasa! Can you believe it?

Fun Fact: Have you Churpers heard about the CLPTs?

The CLPTs was being initiated by Atilia Haron, when all of her closest friends will come together, and at times will practice Yoga together. They not only practice Yoga, they practice very healthy lifestyle. Dying to know who are the rest of the CLPTs? Well…….. *hint to the hint* They are also our Churp Alphas! :p

Here is the CLPTs Family! Atilia Haron, Aishah Sinclair, Daphne Iking, Dynas Mokhtar, Ning Baizura, Serena C, Sazzy Falak and Yasmin Hani. Go go go, quickly follow them on their Instagram if you want to know more! Here’s a picture pf the CLPTs :)

Now that you know more on the CLPTs, do allow us to furnish you with Atilia’s Yoga background. Did you know that Atilia has recently upped her Yoga game by becoming a yoga teacher? Well yes, you did not hear it wrongly; Atilia is indeed a registered Yoga teacher!

Don’t be deceived by Atilia’s size, small size fun size! But she doesn’t do diet at all! She eats 8 times a day, and she definitely loves her meat!
