Malaysia’s hot and humid weather does not always bode well for makeup. More often than not, this results in creases on the eyes and orange sweat from our foundation, and running to the bathroom to do yet another touch up.

Have you girls ever heard of the benefits of using olive oil in your skin care?
Scientifically, olive oil is full of the good stuff. Extra virgin olive oil, especially, has been scientifically proven to be able to lower inflammatory markers in blood due to its high concentration of polyphenols.
