Superfood Blend

Pomi-T® is the world’s first scientifically evaluated and completely natural whole food supplement developed by UK Oncologist, Professor Robert Thomas, based on his successful trial on the effect of polyphenols on cancer. Rich in antioxidants, plant polyphenols and phytochemicals found naturally within four whole foods – broccoli, turmeric, pomegranate and green tea – and free of contaminants and additives, Pomi-T® helps guard healthy cells against abnormalities. Diets rich in polyphenols have been linked with lower risk of chronic illnesses such as dementia, high cholesterol, arthritis, heart disease, skin ageing and macular degeneration that results in loss of vision.

Question of the month: What are your tips for whiter, brighter skin?

Prevention is better than cure; although I apply sunscreen every morning, I avoid the sun especially between 10am and 3pm. If it’s unavoidable, I will cleanse my face and re-apply sunscreen of SPF50, PA+++ on my face and neck before going out in the sun.

I use Vitamin C cream daily to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation on my face. I also apply a skin brightening mask which contains natural extracts such as Mulberry, Licorice and Bearberry weekly. Other safe chemicals to look out for include Alpha and Beta Arbutin, Gigawhite, Kojic Acid, Azaelaic Acid, and Glutathione. I am careful not to go for quick-fix products containing harsh ingredients which may result in skin irritation and sensitivity. To enhance the whitening effect, I take a daily supplement which has a composition of L-Cysteine and Ascorbic Acid to lighten my pigmentation.

In addition, I have learnt that make-up and clothing can enhance my overall look. The right colours brighten up my skin and make me look more attractive.

I try not to whiten my skin using harsh, chemical-loaded cosmetics which are also expensive. I use these cost-effective, easy homemade remedies which will brighten and whiten skin and give it with a natural glow.

  1. Honey and lemon juice
    To make a skin-lightening mask, combine one teaspoon each of pure honey and lemon juice, one tablespoon of yoghurt, and one half-teaspoon of olive oil. Mix them well and apply gently on the skin. Leave for 10 to 15 minutes, then wash off with cold water. This helps remove dead skin cells, making your skin appear brighter and fresher.
  2. Papaya

Papaya skin has cleansing and lightening properties. Rub the inner part of the skin on your face and allow it to dry. Wash your face with cold water and pat it dry. This will give your skin a nice glow. You can do this daily.

  1. Turmeric and milk powder mask
    Turmeric has antiseptic and anti-oxidant properties that are good for your skin’s overall health. Mix one tablespoon of turmeric powder, one tablespoon of milk powder and three tablespoons of water to make a thick paste. Apply on your skin and allow to dry for 15 minutes, then wash off with lukewarm water. It’s really effective for skin whitening.

I have dull combination skin which is oily and dry, and I get dark very easily. Just an hour under the sun can make me go a shade or two darker and it always frustrates me because I have to spend the next two months shying away from the sun to get my normal tone back. For a white, brighter skin, I swear by lemon water. I drink about two to three litres of lemon water every day, and if I cannot get my hands on lemon, I make sure I drink enough water.

Every three days or so, I will rub lemon dabbed with milk (as lemon might hurt sensitive skin or open cuts) on my face. I exfoliate every two or three days and moisturise my face day and night. With these routines, I manage to head to work without the slightest hint of make-up on my face and never worry about feeling insecure.
