Inner and Outer Sun Protection with NUViT

May 28th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

I’ve tried a new sun care product recently. Even though it’s MCO, we stay at home but we are still exposed to harmful UV and blue light radiation. Hence, don’t be lazy with sunscreen application. I apply sunscreen daily even when I’m not going out. It’s a must for me or else my morning skincare routine will not be completed. Aside from that, I will have my daily Vitamin C supplement too.

NUViT has it all covered!

NUViT Daily Defender SPF50+***(RM55.90) with 360° Invisible Shield is non-greasy, lightweight, moisturizing, long-lasting, not sticky, and soothing. There is no paraben, fragrance, or alcohol in it. The key ingredients are Pollushield™, Ceramide, Laminaria, Ochroleuca Extract, and Hyaluronic Acid. All these ingredients can protect from UVA and UVB damage which cause photo-aging; anti-pollution to protect against urban dust and reduce metal imbedding into skin; reduce oxidative stress in skin cause by blue light and boost collagen production; restore skin barrier; and moisturize skin.

I’ve been using it daily. It doesn’t break me out. Fast absorbing with velvety finish. Use it as the last step of morning skincare routine by applying it evenly on the face and neck.

As for defense from within to complement the sunscreen, you can drink NUViT Sunblox(RM80) daily. It helps in reducing sunburn effect, skin aging, and skin damage from UV radiation while maintaining skin elasticity. Best to drink in the morning. It contains Vitamin C and collagen that are known to improve body’s defense system while improve other aspects of skin. This nutritional orange and lemon flavor beverage has no sugar, fat, preservatives, and artificial colouring added.

The key ingredients are 2000mg Collagen Tripeptide to maintain skin elasticity; 300mg Vitamin C to boost immunity; while clinically proven NutroxSun™ and Polypodium Leucotomos Extract are plant-based strong antioxidants that protect skin from UV ray free radicals.

Mix 1 sachet with 180ml room temperature water and stir well. Consume 1 sachet daily. I do like the taste, not too sweet, not too sour. You can add honey to enhance the sweetness but it’s sweet enough for me. Remember to really stir it well and drink it immediately as it will oxidize. By the way, in general, collagen supplement is beneficial, I experienced good effect from it, I had less breakouts and hair loss was less too. I believe Sunblox will do the same.

May 17th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

Today is the Day 61 of Movement Control Order… We’re in the conditional period now. More people are heading back to work tomorrow. Hope all will be well. Hope that it’s not going to be your last few days of work, I know many companies are going to retrench their staff so that they can keep their business afloat. Be thankful that if you stull have your job to go back to.

Anyway, here’s two more slang to share with you 🙂

By the way, there will be no Kuching Festival this year due to the pandemic. It’s ok… Safety is more important than a festival. Meanwhile, for those who has nothing to do outside, just stay at home. With the conditional MCO now, we are seeing many people don’t care about the seriousness of the problem anymore, they are not interested in following the SOP, we will be seeing next wave coming soon. Better stay safe than sorry.

Malaysia CMCO Extended to 9th June 2020

May 11th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

Yesterday, our PM announced that Malaysia CMCO period will be extended until 9th June 2020. Most people will get to go back to work with the set SOP of course. I would suggest you to do your grocery shopping during office hour instead of the weekend or after office hour to avoid the working crowd especially if you are still required to stay home or do not work.

However, I cannot understand the maximum 20 people gathering part. Even in Australia, it’s only 10 people, what makes you think 20 is safe? Why must there be gathering? I really don’t get it. It’s not essential at all. Whatever it is, best is to just stay home and don’t go out when there is nothing important. Avoid crowded place, confined place, and close conversation. Stay safe!

Since we will still be staying at home, you might want to try to plant your own bean sprouts. I did a video for it 😉 Have fun trying!

No More MCO4 but MCO5

May 4th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

So… Before MCO4 even ended, we suddenly gone into MCO5. Many businesses can now open for business. Many people will be going back to work. What do you think? Is this the right move?

Whatever it is, do your own part. If you are not comfortable opening for business, then don’t; if you are afraid of crowd, then don’t go to crowded place; if you are not comfortable dining in, then don’t! It’s up to yourself to self-regulate. However, come to think of it, businesses are operating, they will need customers, if everyone staying at home, not going out to give them business, they will not have enough to cover their overhead at all. So how? Like this also problem, like that also problem.

Aside from that, business should take the SOP seriously because if one of your staff is tested positive, you will be responsible for sanitizing all the relevant areas that the authority wants you to sanitize and whoever that are affected by the positive staff will be under your responsibility. Remember that the amount you need is not just sanitizing your premise, you might be required to sanitize the areas around you, that will cost a lot! You will need to make sure you have enough to cover such unfortunate event. Otherwise, you’ll be in deep trouble if you don’t because I’m sure your sales for the day will not be able even cover those cost furthermore you will be instructed to close for business for a period of time too.

For the rest who are still staying at home or have nothing important to do out there, just stay at home. Those who need to go to work, keep yourself safe and follow the SOP, no crowded place, no confined place, and no close conversation. Frankly… Not that possible but just try your best to avoid.

Oh! Now you can have 4 people from the same house to travel in car. Can go out shopping for the whole family.

Till then, take care!
