Secrets Your Dental Care Provider Will Never Tell You (But You Should Know)

For the sake of our oral health, it is recommended that we visit the dentist at least twice every year. Even before you are told by your dentist, it goes without saying that we should be brushing and flossing our teeth after every meal. However, there are some secrets that your dentist will never tell you but could be important. For example, your dentist may prescribe you use fluoride supplements so that you can have stronger and healthy teeth. But the information your dental care provider may leave out is that too much fluoride can actually damage your teeth.

The truth of the matter is when you use too much fluoride, it can cause your teeth to lose enamel and become weak. Most people have a habit of breathing through their mouth. But when you visit a dentist, they will not tell you that breathing through your mouth is a big problem when in fact it can lead to cavities. In this article, we will show you 5 secrets your dentists will never tell you, from the benefits of chewing gum to the dangers of piercing your tongue.

Sun Life Malaysia x The KettleBowl Massive Fitness Party : #TheKettlebowlTurnsTHREE

Happy World Health Day! 

This year's World Health Day was rather special for me because I actually did something that made me felt physically better, fitter and healthier. 

Sun Life Malaysia collaborated with The KettleBowl to reinvent the way we celebrate fitness and I was glad to be among the 500 participants to join their massive fitness party with a stellar line-up of instructors, each class presenting a unique workout experience.

"Brighter Lives Bike"

Sun Life Malaysia also collaborates with Biji-Biji, a social enterprise dedicated to sharing progressive ideas with everyone, to build greater awareness on energy consumption and promote green energy.
At the event, I managed to try their Brighter Lives Bike, where I rode the bike and pedaled as much as I could to power a portable battery which would subsequently be donated to the less privileged. It is such a great initiative as the Brighter Lives Bike will be taken across the country to promote healthier living to all Malaysians. 
"Release: Rise As One"

The fitness party kickstarted with a 90-minute special yoga gathering, conducted by 3 extremely talented yogis. It was fun learning from their different styles of practice while this special journey brought us a better understanding of our mind, body and soul.

Are you as excited as me when it comes to yoga? 

Another highlight of the fitness event was this short but highly anticipated stand-up comedy session 
by Kuah Jen Han. I always like his show with Douglas Lim, and was happy to see him here again!

"Sync: Move As One"

After the tummy tickling session, we were all ready for a 90-minute "Sync: Move As One" session combining Pop Pilates, HIIT, boxing and dance led by Maybelline, Chloe and Shaggy. It was my first time experiencing such unique session which united different fitness disciplines into one. Overall, it was a great time of moving to the beat as one with so many participants. 

Opps....I was caught on camera during the exercise!

The KettleBowl also managed to raise over RM6,000 worth of prizes to be awarded to the
Top 3 Male & Female athletes of The Kettlebowl Legacy Challenge #TKBLegacy2019!
Once again, congratulations to all the winners.

After hours of sweating, it was time to dig into yummy snacks at the food and lifestyle market where we saw plenty of booths by local brands including fitness wear, health products, protein drinks, car test drive etc.

My favourite was the low-calorie, low-fat ice cream from Calli. What a guilt-free indulgence!

Overall, it was a great experience of sweating it out with my friends on a pleasant Sunday morning. Let's live healthier lives by having more active and balanced lifestyles. Can't wait to join more fitness initiatives from Sun Life Malaysia!

[BEAUTY] Review: CNP Laboratory Vita-B Line for Skin Brightening

People often say "You are what you eat", but for me, I'd say your skin is what you eat and apply. Just like how we fall sick when our body doesn't get enough nutrients, our skin may look tired and dull when it is lacking of vitamins.

Among the broad range of vitamins, do you know Vitamin B is most important to recharge and revitalize the skin from inside out, while creating a barrier against pollution, air-conditioning and extreme weather? Now, you can "feed" your skin directly with Vitamin B, all thanks to CNP Laboratory, the South Korea’s leading pharmaceutical-level cosmetic brand.

This is not my first time trying out CNP's specialised skincare products. After my first review of CNP's skincare for oily / acne-prone skin, I find them very promising and I am eager to get my skin back in the pink of health with CNP's Vita-B line. 

Featuring a total of 7 types of Vitamin B (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 & B12), the Vita-B line works like a multivitamin supplement to recharge the skin using its 4 key ingredients:

7 Vita-B Complex
❤ Uniquely concocted by CNP Laboratory’s Skin Specialists, it helps replenishe moisture easily

Cherry Blossom Water
❤ Goodbye Purified Water and it's time to say Hello to Korean Cherry Blossom Water, which has more superior hydrating benefits to give skin a naturally-dewy effect.

❤ A powerful antioxidant with double dose of whitening effect

Glyceryl Glucoside & Sodium Hyaluronate
❤ For long-lasting hydration down into the skin’s deeper dermal layers

Vita-B Energy Ampule (15ml) @ RM123

I used to think that ampule is just an extra step that I can neglect, but actually no, it can work really well as a skincare booster. And this Vita-B Energy Ampule is THE multivitamin supplement made for lacklustre skin!

How to use:
1. After cleaning and toning:
Apply a few drops of the ampule evenly on fingertips and tap gently over skin to boost that glowing effect.

2. As booster:
Mix it with a moisturizer or cream mask so it acts as a booster to improve the effectiveness of your usual skincare steps.

A serum-like liquid; smooth yet not sticky at all. 

Lightweight and very quickly absorbed into skin. 

What I Like:
I like how well it works in putting that ‘pink glow’ back in your skin, when applied under makeup. Plus, just a few drops can go a long way.

Vita-B Energy Gel Cream (50ml) @ RM150

When it comes to the last step of skincare, it is always important to seal the skin with nutrients that last all day long. Hence, this super hydrating Vita-B Energy Gel Cream is here to give a lasting glowing effect. Plus, the cooling formula is perfect as an after-sun treatment, and can also be used as a sleeping mask.

How to use:
1. As the final step of your skincare regime before sunscreen:
Apply onto face and neck in a circular motion, avoiding the eye area.

2. As sleeping mask:
Apply a thicker layer on skin and massage until fully-absorbed.

Very moisturising, "bouncy" cream that melts instantly on the skin.

It plumps the skin up immediately with a slight cooling sensation. 

What I Like:
It feels like feeding the skin directly with "water", creating a protective glowing layer against the external harsh environment. However, I personally prefer applying it as an overnight mask so the skin appears more glowing in the next day.

Overall Verdict: 

1. Just 2 simple steps and your skin will really thank you for the long-lasting hydro-glow up effect. 
2. I like how it brightens up the skin tone without much fuss -- Always mild, skin-friendly and fast-absorbing.
3. Recommended for dull and dehydrated skin.  

CNP Laboratory Vita-B line is available in selected THE FACE SHOP stores from April 2019 onwards.
