Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

New Dettol pH-Balance Body Wash Experiential Session


let's talk dirty today shall we?

If you watched contagion, then you'll know everywhere around us are germs waiting to just hitch a ride on our skin. Well I always say to myself, there are good germs and there are the nasty germs but what can we do? Plenty.

Did U Know? I was a student nurse in Australia for a year
(darn, wish I taken pictures of myself in my uniform)

When I was a student nurse in Melbourne, I washed my hands more than 20 times in a day at the hospital. I was working in the infectious ward. Yeah INFECTIOUS WARD where infectious diseases could be potentially fatal to anyone who's not careful. Keeping germs away was crucial in my work. Disinfectants, anti-bacterial hand wash, gloves, face masks and showering when you get home before you touch anything else. The healthcare industry ain't kidding about germs.

why being germ-free is important

Keeping ourselves (nurses) germ free isn't the only key to staying healthy. We had to make sure there's no cuts on our skin or that any dirt is transferred over to our patients during care. In the winter, we were advised to moisturized our skin so it don't become dry, cracked or susceptible to infections. It was an eye opener being a nurse.

the largest organ on our body needs our love

The most important lesson of all is to care for ourselves first before we can care for others. Today I would like to share one of the ways we can do this in Malaysia where dirt, germs and pollutions are one of the environmental issues we face e.g Haze.

How Can We Protect Ourselves From Germs?
1. Use anti-bacterial bath care products
2. Moisturized your skin
3. Protect your skin

And there is exactly one product that can do all 3 in the shower. It's Dettol, the one brand my dad use for as long as I remember. Now Dettol has come out with their new and improved body wash with pH-balanced formula. They are the first anti-bacterial body care brand that not only keeps germs away, but also protect our skin, the natural barrier by keeping the pH levels balance and moisturized.

Sharing about Dettol pH-Balance Body Wash on camera!
(watch my interview with Dettol)

introducing the 6 variants of Dettol's new & improved Body Wash
now with a pH-balance formula

the right pH level can keep your skin healthy

I'm putting my hand to the pH test to see if this is true?
fyi pH4.0 - 6.0 is perfect for us

a comparison between brand x, Dettol & my skin's pH level

Brand X - alkaline (not good)
Dettol pH-Balance - acidic (perfect)
my skin - acidic (matches Dettol!)

Our skin's natural barrier - The Acid Mantle is a very fine, slightly acidic invisible film on our skin that protects us from bacteria, viruses and contaminants. It's naturally secreted by the skin with a healthy pH level of 4.0 - 6.0. Germs and contaminants are neutralized by the skin’s acid mantle keeping the skin healthy, soft and supple, free from dryness, cracks and abrasions. This prevents the growth of bad bacteria while keeping the good bacterias happy. The Acid Mantle is easily thrown out of balance with harsh cleansers and scrubs or excessive environmental exposure. 

What Other Factors?

  • Central heating or Air conditioning
  • Environmental changes: UV rays, Exhaust fumes, Pollutants, Dust, haze, heat
  • Oxidants
  • Harmful microorganisms such as germs and bacteria

How To Care  For Your Acid Mantle?
  • Cleansing (with a slightly acidic cleanser) & moisturise for healthy skin
  • Antibacterial Protection for germ free skin
Other ways to protect:
  • Sun-Protection
  • Treat the damage – wrinkles, pigmentation others
  • Treat your skin gently

after the pH-Balance testing, I was treated to a hand massage
(yay I love hand massages!)

and I laughed throughout the session.... LOL
