Sunscreen antiacne: Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne

Sunscreen for oily skin is hard to find, now sunscreen antiacne is suspect eh? Well, I have the skin more oily in the world and adult acne. Test the Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne was like Mission of honor, that if he wins, he wins either.

The Vichy developed this sunscreen antiacne, especially for Brazilian skin. It is therefore recommended for oily skins with a tendency to acne or acnes.

What it promises:

  • Proven effectiveness antiacne;
    High sun protection FPS30 and 17.8 ppd;
    Helps to reduce acne and pores;
    G anti-grease effectiveness;
    Controls the brightness and oils by 9 hours *.

* 53 test consumers, self-assessment after 9 hours of application.

The differential equation:

Powerful Antiacne Complex that assists in fighting acne formation cycle, its elements:
Salicylic acid: Promotes cell renewal in unclogging pores
LHA: Microesfoliação needs, helps prevent blackheads
NIACINAMIDE: Has anti-inflammatory action, acts by inhibiting the inflammatory lesions
Sebustop: is astringent and antiseptic. Ideal for the control of excess sebum and the “shiny” appearance of the skin.

My experience

I use Vichy a few years ago, I’m a fan of skin cleansers and moisturizers.

Use sunscreen every day before makeup and so it was that includes the Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne.

The texture of it is average but still light, nor too full-bodied not too liquid. Apply smoothly and the skin absorbs well. The first plus point is that it does not dry too fast about to flake off or get in the way of makeup. But, of course, as any touch protector dry rub against it “loose” a little.

Second positive point: he won’t let the skin pale, he’s gone in seconds in the application. That’s rare in sunscreen for oily skin and mattifying.

He holds the shine and oiliness, in my case not for 9 hours. But, using a primer + matte makeup this effect is potentiated brightness and g anti-grease.

And the question of being a sunscreen antiacne?

I like to test everything for at least 1 month to give a very real in the ratings.

I’ve been using Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne just over 2 months and what happened in the real was:

I had more pimples after I started using it, but in my case, it’s not just the production of oils that interfere in acne. The adult acne skin takes getting used with products and this rebound effect.

Today, already out of 2 months I think the skin is used and the rebound effect decreasing.

My skin is not a parameter to evaluate the anti acne effect, unfortunately.

But, with all this, I found the sunscreen antiacne of Vichy?

The control of oil was what won me over! But, the fact that I feel no burning or discomfort even with inflammation, is also a plus of Vichy.
It’s pretty hard to find a sunscreen that does not add oils in the skin and to hold the brightness throughout the day. The Vichy Idéal Soleil Antiacne did very well on my oily skin.

A third positive point, to close, it tube format. You can squeeze every last drop of the product to not waste.

Health Life | Diary 4: Packed Lunch, who’s thinking?

health-lunchbox-health-life

I never thought but do my lunch to go it’s been a very pleasant moment. I’m thinking to do this forever!

Because of the healthy snacks the second week in the restricted diet was quieter. Going to the office is easier to follow the 600 calorie diet.

I spend the day at my desk drinking water and my food options are the ones in the lunchbox. Actually, thermal bag, but I’d rather talk lunchbox because it’s cute.

I have also solemnly ignored the cakes that are always there in the office cup at breakfast time.

At home, everything changes and becomes much more difficult.

Every smell and every packet closed is a will. Especially over the weekend, with the options of gordice chasing me.

That’s why I hired a “personal chef” to make healthy lunch and dinner kings. It was the nutritionist’s recommendation and I wanted to test to see if it would really help the day to day.

The price of this kind of service frightens you at first sight.

But, I thought the kettles would be made just for me. Following the menu and all the specifications of the nutritionist. Respecting the preparation mode full of limitations and with quality ingredients.

It is more a luxury than practicality.

I need to associate this diet with pleasure, otherwise, the relationship with food is too complex. It loses its taste and can have emotional consequences.

Having a healthy food that respects the 600 calories of the diet and is still delicious is a “care” I gave.

It is that thing I am and I am not sick, I can not heal the body creating another problem for the future.

I could not do half the options that Chef Thais proposed. The diversity of dishes she made with few ingredients is incredible and I have enjoyed it very much.

I’m going to make a post with the menu and the evaluation of the dishes soon.

I’ve always had the lunchboxes with me, even when I go to my mother’s home to keep my focus.

This week it was easy to keep the diet, even with the sweet tooth.

The realization of the time is how people check the food of those who are above or below weight right? It’s not even to help, see.

Everybody bother me with the size of my packed lunch. At home, at work, in life. I can not take it anymore, in the cafeteria, in the lunch, in the lunch: “Are you going to eat ONLY that?” With those wide eyes. Worse, the person continues: “My God you’re going to die, change the doctors!”

When I ate everything I was called a dredger, the false lean, the one who gave PT in the kilo (BR name to a kind of restaurant), had solitary in the belly, came from Ethiopia…

Healthy Packed Lunch - are you going to eat this?

close, no one asks how I feel or if my exams have improved. Who thinks health is only the body on the outside and not inside, right? I remembered a text that I read in Portal Roots and talks about emotional health and how it affects physical health (click).

Ah, in the last consultation I lost 2,100 kg, totaling 3,100 kg in 2 weeks.

Next week I’ll come back with another diary and some more complaint from non-sense people 😀

Healthy Life | Diary 3-first week with 600 calories a day!

vida saudável 600 calorias por dia

The post title might be: WHY I STARTED THIS DIET? (uppercase because I’m yelling at me).

I made notes of that first week eating only 600 calories a day, the diary 3 is to tell how my body and my mind are reacting to this sudden change in food.

In the previous post I mentioned that my head was confused and so I stayed the whole week. As if I had changed my operating system from Linux to Windows. The compromised data processing processes slow and error, all locking.

My head was injured but, other than that the worst was feeling hungry. If I could I would eat a little bit every 1:30, but may not have to wait 3 hours to eat a tiquinhozinho of nothing new.

As I started the diet on Saturday (11/12/2016), we had the holiday wedding anniversary lunch chosen by nutri and I stayed 4 days at home. 4 days looking at my cereal bars with chocolate, my cans of condensed milk and eating tasteless food.

Suffered.

Even seasoning with everything he can: garlic, onion, pepper, nothing made the food look hot. I don’t eat (ate) salad so the worst part was used to the taste buds with green leaves, the only thing free amount in the diet.

When I got back to work and the routine I felt less hungry throughout the day, but the pot of chicken was still difficult to eat. Chicken is the protein easier to do after the egg. Egg that I can only eat the egg that also has no taste.

Who says it’s easy to maintain a diet of 600 calories a day, that’s crazy. Maybe get easier over time, but the early days were almost torture. I had dizziness, nausea, vomited and I thought I was overloading my body for nothing (like the other times I’ve tartei with disrupters).

I had the urge to eat this week? Everything, sweet, salty, rice, beans, meat, cake. All I felt the smell my stomach jumped desiring. But surprisingly I didn’t feel like milk or soda, point for me.

I left the diet only in the day of my wedding anniversary, ate some candy for dessert, very little. But, huh? Shouldn’t.

In return with the Nutritionist, she explained that the reduction of carbohydrates cause the symptoms of dizziness, slow, nausea. As it was nothing exaggerated, was not reason for changing the diet.

The doctor’s expectation was that I would eliminate 2kgs in a week, but I lost just 1 kg. It could have been that little bit of dessert I ate? Can! But it could also be my metabolism is well slowed, according to the bioimpedance.

Until my return was pretty emotional, motivated, but the possibility of my body take to respond to diet, health does not improve as fast as promised, made me really so angry with life.

I’m not even going to talk about the fact the Nutri asking if I was pregnant because of my symptoms are all morning. The annoying thing to have to answer that kind of question.

I left the Office sad and discouraged, think about the other doctors I went through and I still have some tests to do. Maybe these tests help to understand why I don’t lose weight and my metabolism so slow.

But, in this first week with the diet of 600 calories what most annoyed me was the question: are you on a diet? With that look of contempt or curiosity, as if it were something funny or ridiculous.

When someone sees my marmitinhas comes the question and mentally I answer like this:

600 calories a day diet Meme

You can see that my mood zero tolerance didn’t abandon me, huh? Good, now I’m living better the second week with more strength and resilience.

Healthy Life | 2 Diary: exams and consultations, many questions

My quest for healthy life began with a decision and went through a marathon of examinations and consultations.

I started with simple attitudes to change habits, but have medical support was essential.

Especially, 1 years here, when my body started showing signs that needed urgent care. I had a lot of questions that needed to be answered.

It took me to find the right doctors, just this week I was in 3 different doctors, endocrinologist, nutritionist and gynecologist. Not to mention the return queries on previous doctors.

It’s no exaggeration to call marathon tests and consultations, I lost count, turned me upside down and cavucaram every corner of my body.

It’s not very nice, but for the first time in my life, I’m sure the medical team I picked. Not by the names attached to it, but throughout the process that made me get this far.

I asked you to do some tests, I collected my medical history and went from doctor to doctor showing and asking.

Only when I felt really safe I started the treatment focused on picking a healthy life starting with the reeducation of eating habits.

Hormonal/emotional/physical problems are not easy, mess with things we can’t even imagine. For example, our energy, our moods, our desire to live.

It is not uncommon for women with hormonal problems having bouts of anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain.

Even knowing that when it happens with us is a shock. Even more because, in my case, theoretically my hormones are controlled by medication.

But nothing in the human body is accurate, every body is a body and never know how my body can react or not the right treatment.

So feel safe was important in that process. Because it’s a change of mine, I don’t want to make room for anyone to question.

I’m not explaining details of my health/life. So, in 10 years of blogging I’ve never posted on a lot of things.

Even at home, I avoid commenting too. Especially, the age and health of my mother, I don’t want to worry her. With the tests and consultations, my routine at home changing I end up giving one or another explanation.

But, I know that too much space leads to questions/unpleasant conclusions. Now, I’m not in the mood to answer, because my doctors did not respond. so …

In the end, I supported the doctors and me, to not give up and control the fear and anxiety. And I’m going relatively well, I think.

I found this confusing text, but I think it’s the fault of food restriction. But, who said a diary need to make sense, right?

Be back soon with more updates organized this process:)

How to dress well with little money and few clothes?

Se vestir bem

Dress up with little money and few clothes today is not a sacrifice, but it was the only option I had during a time of my life.

If you don’t know my story, read these texts:
 [Tweet “Minha relação com o que eu visto se tornou parte do meu processo de auto-conhecimento. Hoje, mesmo podendo ter mais quantidade [de peças], I choose to have more quality. “]
  • But, how?
The amount of clothing items that I have doesn’t make a difference because I’ve lived with the incredible amount of 18 pieces. Well before the Cabinet and capsule of fashion minimalism.
There was a time that I shared a pair of “out” with my sister and the rest of my clothes were donated, most came from cousins, Church, neighbors … Is the perrengue that we learn to turn around!
Since 2012 I choose to keep my closet with “few” pieces, varying the amount according to my moment of life. Therefore, in the current consumption pattern, it seems that I always have few clothes.
But, mathematically, it’s possible to form 153 looks of the day by combining 2 parts, of a total of 18. That calculation falls on the ENEM, see? Combinatorics.
It is an exercise in creativity and to get to know my wardrobe to optimize the combinations.
With some basic examples that I apply every day gets easier to understand that my idea of how to dress well with little money and few clothes.
  • Colors
If-dress-well-with-little-money-and-little-clothes-colors
I love basic colors, blue, black, pink, grey and white. Have basic colors helps to not have problems in time to combine all colors “talk” and it is easier to mix.
If you like more colorful open the Cabinet and look for what parts can combine. Think of combinations that you’ve never tried it, try it and see how you feel.

Prove your clothes in a variety of ways, take a day to go in front of the mirror and get to know your body and its parts. Enjoy and get ready, making the donation Baggie with the parts that are just doing volume in the closet.

  • Combinations and adaptations
Have you ever thought about wearing a dress as blouse? Think you can’t? Look here:
How to dress well with little money?
A simple dress, with good fabric and a pattern that I loved in relief that I’d only use with ease in end-of-year party. But, with a superimposed he turns a blouse.
[Tweet “Adaptação é a palavra chave quando a questão é se vestir bem com pouco dinheiro e pouca roupa.”]
  • Repeat, combine and reuse
We need to accept that repeat clothes is not ugly! Who loves repeats <. 3
One of the pieces that I repeated until the lining tearing is my white blazer. Make combinations of various styles with him, since the jeans with sneakers, even the most chic socialzinho.
If-dress-well-with-little-money-and-little-clothes-repeat-parts
Another cool thing in time to dress up with little money and few clothes is to mix prints. My choices are simple not to miss.
I mix shirt stripes and polka-dot pants, put a stronger color in your shoe or belt and ready, changed the face of my clothes.
  • Let’s talk about shoes!
Buy templates that I can use with most of my clothes and that are suitable for my day to day. I have always (at least) 1 black pumps and keep the jumps between 6/8 cm are comfortable.
Another secret to dressing well is to make good choices. So, choose clothes that show your style and not only fashion.
Oh, all the photos of that post show pieces that I repeat a lot, some have already been to goodwill and other here in the closet with a few years of life.
An update: I lived with 18 pieces in a period where I was starting to work on a telemarketing firm, not hide my poor source here on the blog. Was the difficulty that I have learned to buy my clothes conscious that even having money and being able to HAVE more, it doesn’t take much to dress well.
It’s not a project, okay? That’s how I like to live.
So, the parts I have are of higher quality than those of the old days and cost more expensive but buy brand X or Y makes no difference. The quality and the fit is what determines the investment, not the label.
The mathematical model of Combinatorics is an incentive to think outside the box, out of his desire to have more and to USE MORE and BETTER USE.
How to dress well with few clothes?
  • Possible combinations
In a cabinet with 18 pieces it is possible to have: top 7 and 12 bass parts, using dressed as blouse and as skirt.
    • Without repetition you have: 84 possibilities for look of the day.
    • With repeats the possibilities increase to 153 (approximately).
Saw shirts vests, overlays of dress + skirt + shirt dress, dress + pants and etc.
A lesson I learned from my closet of 18 pieces was less pants and more options of tops/shirts. At the time I was wearing too many clothes won and there was no option to choose, but the hint:)
Do you still think you can’t wear well with little money and few clothes?
