Self-Love Notes

Few more days before the new year!!
I just love New Year resolution!! There is just something about starting a new year and telling yourself “I’m gonna make this year about bla, bla and bla..” I don’t know how long it will last but at least I have my objectives.. and ALWAYS aim high!! Yes, that’s what I always do.. Aim high! Like an old saying…” Aim for the stars, you might end up with an astronaut!” Haaa.. I just made that up! What I meant is.. aim for the best, if you don’t get it, you know you’ve tried your best..!
Or maybe you can say.. “At least niat tu ada…” Hahaha…
There are few things I need to focus this time.. and the most important thing is to slow down the aging process. Not that I don’t want to grow old.. but I just want to grow old gracefully. I don’t want to look like I’m still 19, I just want to look appropriate for my age. Is it too much to ask for..?
Two of the few things I want to do this year, my skin and fitness level!
Exercise! Exercise! Exercise! Always make time to exercise.
That’s my new mantra. Health is wealth (except that you can’t buy handbag with health! Haha..) but seriously, your health is important in long term run.. It helps to prevent you from lifestyle-related disease like diabetes, hypertension and heart disease… (that’s the doctor-side of me!!) If you’re not healthy, how can you take care of others. And the perk of being fit, is that you’ll lose all the baby fat.. hello toned body!! This baby fat that clings to my body is killing me… If I gained 5kg after every delivery, can you imagine me after 10 children?!! Haaaa…
And then, comes the skin care part.. the most common question I get in my email, blog, tweeter. The number one principal of skin care is always prevention is better than cure (well, that is applied to medicine too!) So, it’s always better to do something today than waiting for it to happen.
As you get older, you’ll notice you need more ‘maintenance’ than when you were in your 20’s!! I can get away with just basic stuff like cleanser, moisturiser and sunblock in my 20’s.. But now, I have to add serum, eye cream, skin supplement and God knows what!! Hahaha.. Yes, as much I hate to admit, that is the fact. I need all the help I can get.
My favourite serum is the SKII Treatment Essence aka the Miracle Water.
I have been using it for almost 10 years, I still remember my first bottle of SKII, it was in 2003, I was in my fourth year medical school and my boyfriend-now-husband bought for me!! Hahaha.. I was so into it until now.. And yes, I spent my JPA scholarship on SKII Miracle Water!! 😀
Favourite eye cream… Haih.. I’m not really sure about that. I haven’t found anything that I’m really fond of. I notice that the skin around my eyes looks good when I have enough sleep (which is rare!!) I still haven’t found anyone sell “enough-sleep-in-a-bottle” serum yet.. So, right now, the search is still on…
And skin supplement.. Currently I’m taking this Secret Skin White Kawaii Collagen which has high content of anti-oxidant and stem cells (I need all the help I can get, remember?)
Yes, anti-oxidant is very important in slowing down aging process, in fact it is very good in preventing cancer. Considering our daily lifestyle is highly exposed to free radicals in the environment, supplement of antioxidant is definitely the answer. You can get yours from here..
Of course there’s also new resolution for my career, mommyhood (that includes reading books for B and T every night when I’m not oncall!!) and being a wife (does a promise not to wear ugly but comfy t-shirt at home considered as a resolution?? Haha..) and probably I should be more consistent in writing in my blog!
OK, enough of my new year resolutions. We have a few more days to go before starting fresh in 2014. I’m soooo in my holiday mood right now. Getting together with family is definitely in my agenda.
Happy holiday to all of you!
May Allah bless us all.. InsyaAllah…

  7. hi Dr Halina. I adore ur skin. Btw i nak tanya Dr secret white collogen tu preggy boleh consume ke? or kalau plan nak hamil.

  8. Saya bukan pengedar Secret Skin White Kawaii Collagen. sswkc. Saya juga guna. Saya tiada masalah kulit. Jadi tak boleh bagi testimoni hehe.
    Tapi its okaylah. Rasa fresh and energy ok. Kulit lebut ok. Putih tu sikit2 lah. Sy baru consume tk sampai separuh botol lagi. If stop. Takde pape akan berlaku. Preggy mom. I hear that kena 4 ke 6 bulan ke atas. Sebab nak kandungan tu mcm dah terbentuk like that. I dont know tapi boleh tanya seller dia.

    Service dia best. Dpt free gift. Natural yes. Takde bahan2 kimia nih. Kalau ikut kandungan dia. Takde yang boleh kalahkan lagi lah. I also like the taste of the health drink. Tak bahaya. Yang saya tahu. Halal. Lulus KKM. Ada guarentee tak silap saya check fb seller. And kilang bertaraf GMP. Tolong recheck fb seller. 😀

  9. Dr, just wanna suggest you something good. You should try Elken product. Charms Body Shaping foundation and Triple Set comes with Massage machine, El marino blanc(skin nutrition) and UPII skincare. Sure you will love it!! The best ever total beauty package from head to toe. Only spend for RM10K for 3 years. You can google it for the reviews. U can contact me for info.

  10. huuu.. untuk ibu-ibu, sama ada berkerjaya atau stay at home mother, nak menjaga diri ni memang kena disiplin yang tinggi.. diet, exercise, skincare routine, supplements.. tu baru physical state.. mental, emotional and spiritual state.. nak cope dengan cabaran kerja dan rumah.. karenah manusia kawan, family dan ipar duai.. semoga Allah sama-sama bagi kita kekuatan untuk buat the best in 2014 and the rest of our life, insyaAllah

  11. Oh Doctor, you have inspired me to do a checklist on the ‘beauty me’ as well. Hehe. Yeah, exercise is important. Despite taking some ‘kurus’ supplement, I don’t believe any of them. It’s exercise the key to health and slim. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  12. U r truly my inspiration doc;) hope to be just like you one day. My friend even told me that I look a bit like you. Except that u have radiant glowing skin! hehe Much love xoxo

  18. Assalamualaikum doktor…memandangkan dr merupakan dr kulit,saya ada sedikit kerisauan dalam bab penjagaan kulit..
    Kulit saya jenis bermasalah jerawat dan hampir tidak ada penyelesaian. Sehinggalah sayaberjumpa dr kulit berdekatan tempat tinggal saya dan ia berkesan..telah setahun saya ambil..dan skrg sy telah diminta untuk stop dalam sebulan,tp diminta untuk berjumpa balik dr untuk follow-up selama mana ubat itu berkesan,atau selama mana kulit saya boleh bertahan tanpa ubat…

    Saya agak risau sekiranya untuk masalah jerawat saya terpaksa bergantung pada ubat…dan sefahaman saya makan ubat untuk jangka masa lama mungkin akan membawa kepada masalah buah pinggang pula..harap dr halina dpt bg nasihat atau pandangan..terima kasih.askum..

  19. Of course dah kene jaga kecantikan dari awal tau.. I pernah orang cakap 40’s even I’m only 35 at that time.. I also use this kind of food supplement .. Alhamdulillah.. after 4 months.. from makcik .. I become kakak already… It is the worst experience I ever had.. the best part is husband makin sayang..

  26. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

  27. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
