Lia’s Packing List : Puglia, Italy

It’s the summer season once again and nothing excites me more than spending some time by the coast, listening to my favorite podcasts and having cocktails all afternoon! As temperatures rise in Manila, an invitation to getaway from the city is most definitely welcome.

This time, my husband and I are off to attend a wedding in Puglia, known as the heel of the boot of Italy. Puglia is still under the radar for a lot of tourists which definitely adds to its charm. Despite it being low key, it is not short of stunning baroque cities, beautiful landscapes, rich art and culture, and delicious food.

Admittedly I prep way in advance when I take a trip because it takes me forever to handpick what products and clothes to bring (I try to pack light but always in vain). Here’s my packing list for my getaway in Puglia:

How to Get Glowing Skin: Evening Skincare Routine

We have been getting a lot of questions on how to use a double cleanser or what night time products can we recommend from Pixi Skintreats.

Here’s a an easy step-by-step night time routine to achieve that dewy, healthy glow!

Step 1: Cleanse using the Caroline Hirons x Pixi Double Cleanse . Start with the Solid Cleansing Oil by applying a small amount of product on the face. Rub in circular motion and remove with makeup removing wipes or moist towel. Do the same with the Luxe Cleansing Cream as your 2nd step in cleansing to thoroughly remove excess makeup or dirt on skin.

Step 2: Use Pixi Glow Tonic to to tone and tighten skin. Contains 5% glycolic acid that helps brighten and even out skintone. (don’t forget to wear SPF in the am!)

Step 3: Apply Pixi 24k Eye Elixir Rollerball under the eyes to soothe  and improve circulation around the eye area. (Tip: Put rollerball in the fridge to get more cooling effect)

Step 4: Got dry lips? Use the Nourishing Lip Polish to moisturize and exfoliate lips. The massage applicator stimulates circulation and for a plumped effect.

Step 5: Finish off with the multi-tasking Rose Oil Blend to moisturize face and wake up to smooth, glowing skin!

Spoil Your Moms This Coming Mother’s Day!

While moms truly deserve to be spoiled all year round – after all we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them! – we often tend to take them for granted.

Mother’s Day helps us remember why moms are the superwomen of this world! And what mom doesn’t love to unleash her inner #glambabe?

We’ve curated a few ideas for you to make the choice easier:

Exploring Burias Island with the Pixi Sun Mist

 

Before boarding the 2-hour boat ride from Pasacao Port to San Pascual, Burias Island, Masbate, I sprayed on my new Pixi SPF 30 Sheer Sun Mist on my neck, arms, and legs. “I mustn’t forget the back of my hands and my ears,” I thought to myself as most people would tend to overlook these parts. It was 8am and temperatures were already rising. The boatman calls us in, it’s time to sail.
