Reapplying sunscreen? Easy...

If you are wearing makeup in the summer heat and it is melting... you probably don't just need to touch up the makeup but also your sunscreen.
Powders with SPF are great, but it can get cakey.
Since last year I have been using Korean sunscreen sprays. It's so easy to use, I really think they invented this for lazy people.
Here is the one I currently use and it's completely clear (no white flakes). It is like spraying water on your face.

Anti-acne tea?

A while ago I found this tea on Taobao, that is supposed to decrease your acne if you drink it every day.

Exfoliants in skincare , part 1

Hello, everyone! I thought I might share which exfoliants I currently use in my skincare and how they work.

   Left to right: Roc Retinol Correxion Eye Cream, 5% Azelaic Acid (Chinese brand), 2% Salicylic Acid (Chinese Brand,
    Alpha Hydrox Oil-Free Treatment, Alpha Hydrox Silk Wrap Body Lotion

Food in Shenzhen - Cantoneeeese

That's just some stuff that we eat here usually. Dark green veggies are always a nice addition to get some more vitamins. These are cooked with some fat pork meat together, as traditionally (or let's say in former times) Cantonese restaurants used pork fat instead of oil to fry vegetables. Of course, nowadays using animal oil isn't popular anymore. because it is considered to be a bit unhealthy.
The chick peas are dried and salted - it is just a snack (it was for free).
One of the most tasty things is this tofu that contains some meat. It is usually served hot and still boiling inside the bowl. 
Lastly we have some fried fish cakes. Tasty, but a little too over-processed for me.

#1 Most uncomfortable pants

Since one year I've been seeing sooo many girls/women wear this type of tight uncomfortable black skinny pants. It's not really a jeans, not a leggings, But definetely not what a "jeggings" is supposed to be.

Even though they come in many sizes they are ALWAYS to tight, no matter what body shape...
Luckily since the weather is super hot now there are definitely less people wearing it. But in general, with the climate here, I can only wear tight long pants in December-February. Even then it's actually too humid, so it feels uncomfortable.
I guess real Shenzhen people won't be bothered too much by the humidity.
But let me just tell you one more thing. There is nothing flattering about this pants. It's so tight and the material is rough and everything but flexible, it will most likely make your butt look more flat and "squeezed". I can't image the person on this photo sitting down with those pants. Ouch!
