Lindungi Kulit Dengan Tabir Surya SPF 15!

 Cuaca panas seperti ini bisa bikin kulit kamu jadi kering dan rusak loh! Apalagi, kalau kamu berencana untuk pergi ke pantai. Kamu wajib memakai Tabir Surya di kulit agar mendapakan perlindungan dari sinar UV jahat. Penyerapan sinar UV, baik UV A maupun UV B, memberi banyak pengaruh buruk bagi kulit kamu.
Tapi banyak juga orang yang belum menyadari kalau sinar matahari itu buruk terhadap kulit. Pengaruh buruk sinar matahari bisa dirasakan mulai dari kulit yang berubah kecoklatan yang tak merata (uneven skin tone), kulit terbakar (sunburn), noda atau flek hitam (freckles), dan photoaging (kerutan). Wihhh, pasti kamu gak mau kan kalau kulit kamu jadi cepet tua.
Nah, maka dari itu penggunaan Sunblock itu penting kan! tapi ketika memilih krim tabir surya, ada beberapa hal yang harus kamu diperhatikan, yaitu adanya label SPF, PA, dan antioksidan di dalamnya.

1. SPF
SPF (sun protection factor) adalah perlindungan dari radiasi UV B. Biasanya SPF diikuti oleh angka-angka, seperti SPF 15, SPF 30, atau SPF 50. Masih bingung untuk menentukan kebutuhan SPF kamu? Semakin besar SPF bukan berarti produk tersebut semakin bagus dalam melindungi kulit kamu. Angka pada SPF tidak menunjukkan seberapa besar radiasi yang bisa ditahan, melainkan menunjukkan berapa lama losien ini mampu menahan radiasi matahari. Pemilihan angka SPF sendiri tergantung dari lokasi serta aktivitas yang dilakukan. Untuk kulit Indonesia, jika hanya melakukan aktivitas normal (lebih banyak di dalam ruangan) cukup gunakan krim tabir surya dengan SPF 15.

2. PA
Mungkin banyak yang tidak tau elemen yang satu ini. PA memang kurang dikenal dibandingkan SPF. PA merupakan singkatan dari protection grade of UV A, sehingga PA ini merupakan perlindungan terhadap radiasi sinar UV A. Jika SPF diikuti dengan angka, maka lambang perlindungan PA diikuti dengan lambang + . Ada tiga tipe perlindungan sinar UV A, yaitu PA+, PA++, PA+++. Semakin banyak lambang + nya, berarti semakin lama melindungi kulit dari radiasi.

Untuk mengetahui seberapa banyak kebutuhan PA untuk kulit, hitung protection factor of UV A (PFA) terlebih dulu. Caranya dengan menghitung minimal persistent pigment darkening (MPPD)  kulit yang terlindungi, dibagi dengan MPPD kulit yang tak terlindungi.

MPPD merupakan jumlah bagian kulit yang berubah warna menjadi kecoklatan akibat terbakar sinar matahari dalam satu bagian. Jika hasil pembagian ini memiliki angka 2-3, maka PA yang dibutuhkan adalah PA+; untuk angka 4-7 membutuhkan PA ++; dan lebih dari 8 membutuhkan PA+++.

3. Antioksidan
Nah, fitur satu ini gak kalah penting juga loh! Ketika kamu memilih krim tabir surya, sebaiknya pilih juga kandungan antioksidan di dalamnya. Kandungan antioksidan berfungsi untuk menjaga kesehatan kulit dan mencerahkannya. Misalnya, pilih yang ada kandungan vitamin A, C, B3 dan yang lainnya. (

So,  kamu perlu memilih Tabir Surya yang cocok untuk kulit kamu dan juga aktivitas yang dilakukan. Ada satu produk nih yang secara rutin aku pakai ketika aku beraktivitas diluar setiap hari.

Marina UV White dengan extra SPF 15

Why did men stop wearing High Heels?

For generations they have signified femininity and glamour - but a pair of high heels was once an essential accessory for men.
Beautiful, provocative, sexy - high heels may be all these things and more, but even their most ardent fans wouldn't claim they were practical.
They're no good for hiking or driving. They get stuck in things. Women in heels are advised to stay off the grass - and also ice, cobbled streets and posh floors.
And high heels don't tend to be very comfortable. It is almost as though they just weren't designed for walking in.
Originally, they weren't.

"The high heel was worn for centuries throughout the near east as a form of riding footwear," says Elizabeth Semmelhack of the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto.
Good horsemanship was essential to the fighting styles of the Persia - the historical name for modern-day Iran.
"When the soldier stood up in his stirrups, the heel helped him to secure his stance so that he could shoot his bow and arrow more effectively," says Semmelhack.
At the end of the 16th Century, Persia's Shah Abbas I had the largest cavalry in the world. He was keen to forge links with rulers in Western Europe to help him defeat his great enemy, the Ottoman Empire.

So in 1599, Abbas sent the first Persian diplomatic mission to Europe - it called on the courts of Russia, Norway, Germany and Spain.
A wave of interest in all things Persian passed through Western Europe. Persian style shoes were enthusiastically adopted by aristocrats, who sought to give their appearance a virile, masculine edge that, it suddenly seemed, only heeled shoes could supply.

As the wearing of heels filtered into the lower ranks of society, the aristocracy responded by dramatically increasing the height of their shoes - and the high heel was born.
In the muddy, rutted streets of 17th Century Europe, these new shoes had no utility value whatsoever - but that was the point.
"One of the best ways that status can be conveyed is through impracticality," says Semmelhack, adding that the upper classes have always used impractical, uncomfortable and luxurious clothing to announce their privileged status.
"They aren't in the fields working and they don't have to walk far."
When it comes to history's most notable shoe collectors, the Imelda Marcos of his day was arguably Louis XIV of France. For a great king, he was rather diminutively proportioned at only five foot four (1.63m).
He supplemented his stature by a further 10cm with heels, often elaborately decorated with depictions of battle scenes.
The heels and soles were always red - the dye was expensive and carried a martial overtone. The fashion soon spread overseas - Charles II of England's coronation portrait of 1661 features him wearing a pair of enormous red, French style heels - although he was over six foot tall (1.85m) to begin with.
In the 1670s, Louis XIV issued an edict that only members of his court were allowed to wear red heels. In theory, all anyone in French society had to do to check whether someone was in favour with the king was to glance downwards. In practice, unauthorised, imitation heels were available.

Although Europeans were first attracted to heels because the Persian connection gave them a macho air, a craze in women's fashion for adopting elements of men's dress meant their use soon spread to women and children.
"In the 1630s you had women cutting their hair, adding epaulettes to their outfits," says Semmelhack.
"They would smoke pipes, they would wear hats that were very masculine. And this is why women adopted the heel - it was in an effort to masculinise their outfits."
From that time, Europe's upper classes followed a unisex shoe fashion until the end of the 17th Century, when things began to change again.
"You start seeing a change in the heel at this point," says Helen Persson, a curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. "Men started to have a squarer, more robust, lower, stacky heel, while women's heels became more slender, more curvaceous."

The toes of women's shoes were often tapered so that when the tips appeared from her skirts, the wearer's feet appeared to be small and dainty.
Fast forward a few more years and the intellectual movement that came to be known as the Enlightenment brought with it a new respect for the rational and useful and an emphasis on education rather than privilege. Men's fashion shifted towards more practical clothing. In England, aristocrats began to wear simplified clothes that were linked to their work managing country estates.
It was the beginning of what has been called the Great Male Renunciation, which would see men abandon the wearing of jewellery, bright colours and ostentatious fabrics in favour of a dark, more sober, and homogenous look. Men's clothing no longer operated so clearly as a signifier of social class, but while these boundaries were being blurred, the differences between the sexes became more pronounced.
"There begins a discussion about how men, regardless of station, of birth, if educated could become citizens," says Semmelhack.
"Women, in contrast, were seen as emotional, sentimental and uneducatable. Female desirability begins to be constructed in terms of irrational fashion and the high heel - once separated from its original function of horseback riding - becomes a primary example of impractical dress."
High heels were seen as foolish and effeminate. By 1740 men had stopped wearing them altogether.
But it was only 50 years before they disappeared from women's feet too, falling out of favour after the French Revolution.
By the time the heel came back into fashion, in the mid-19th Century, photography was transforming the way that fashions - and the female self-image - were constructed.
Pornographers were amongst the first to embrace the new technology, taking pictures of naked women for dirty postcards, positioning models in poses that resembled classical nudes, but wearing modern-day high heels.
Elizabeth Semmelhack believes that this association with pornography led to high heels being seen an erotic adornment for women.

The 1960s saw a return of low heeled cowboy boots for men and some dandies strutted their stuff in platform shoes in the 1970s.
But the era of men walking around on their toes seems to be behind us. Could we ever return to an era of guys squeezing their big hairy feet into four-inch, shiny, brightly coloured high heels?
"Absolutely," says Semmelhack. There is no reason, she believes, why the high heel cannot continue to be ascribed new meanings - although we may have to wait for true gender equality first.

"If it becomes a signifier of actual power, then men will be as willing to wear it as women."


The Victor

The Victor

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't. 
If you like to win but think you can't, 
It's almost a cinch you won't. 

If you think you'll lose, you're lost. 
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will. 
It's all in the state of mind. 

If you think you are out classed, you are. 
You've got to think high to rise. 
You've got to be sure of your-self before
You can ever win the prize. 

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man. 
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.


Life is so Short

Life Is Short

We grow to old loaded by remorse…
...for things that has not done...
...for words that has not said...
...for love not to be shown...

Life is too short.
Rather than regretting tomorrow,
do all what makes you happy today.


Be a Socialite When You lose your MOOD!

Whether we are extrovert or introvert there are times that we have no mood to socialize with other people but we are in the area of social-situation where we are forced to be a Socialite. I think it’s normal when we feel boring in a certain condition! Base on my experience and some articles that I found in this borderless world I’d like to sum up the reason “Why you might not in the mood to hit up a social event, and deal with them accordingly.”

You're Tired and Don't Feel Up to It
From my own perspective, "being tired and not feeling up to it" are the two most commons reasons why I don't like to go out—and it's easily the most common thing I hear from friends. Sometimes you don't have a choice though, and you have to get out and socialize regardless.
In this case, the trick is in forcing yourself to wake up a little in hopes that you'll be up to socialize when you're awake. As ridiculous as it sounds, a short bout of exercise is a simple way to get a little energy, and a quick walk around the block might restore your energy.
Caffeine, of course, does the trick, but has its share of downsides. If you don't want to resort to caffeine, it might be best to hit your bodies other fuel source: food. As WebMD points out, certain complex carbs found in whole-grain foods are a great way to get a quick energy boost when you need it. Oftentimes, you just need to get a little extra fuel in your system and you'll be good to walk into any social situation with your head high and your brain tuned for conversation. 

There Will Be People There You Don't Like
So, your main cause for concern is that your arch-enemy is going to be there. It's okay, we've all been there, and it's a perfectly reasonable excuse not to go somewhere. But you don't have to let it stop you being sociable.
The easiest way around this is to try and time your entrance or exit so you don't actually run into the people you don't like, but that's not always a possibility. Sometimes you have to face up to them.
In most cases, running into someone at a social function who you don't like is no different than working with someone you don't like. You can deal with the situation the same way. As we've talked about before, you might have to dig deep and figure out why you don't like a person. Perhaps, once you figure out the why, you can move on and have a perfectly good time.
Of course, that's not always the case. Sometimes you just don't like people. If it's a big problem, it might be time to step up and tell someone you don't like them. It's not an easy task, and half the battle is preparing yourself to deal with the conversation. Just remember, we all have people in our lives we don't like—before you go confronting someone ask yourself, "What's my objective in telling someone I don't like them?" If you don't have a good reason, it's probably best to just avoid them. 

You Hate Small Talk
The majority of people out there don't like small talk, but we all do it. Thankfully, you have a ton of tactics to make small talk bearable.
One of the best ways to deal with small talk is to turn it into an actual conversation. You can do this pretty easily by mentioning small details until something sticks, or even just by learning the right questions to ask. If you're struggling to think of questions question, the FORD technique (family, occupation, recreation, dreams) is a simple way to come up with interesting topics.
Once you find that question, it's time to listen. One thing I've learned over the years from being horribly awkward at small talk is that people love to talk about themselves, and the more you allow them to do so, the more they'll like you. The trick, in this case, is all about finding that middle ground where you're both interested in something, and then just letting them talk about it while listening intently. Not only do you walk away with a whole new perspective of the world, you also make a new friend who you won't have to have small talk with anymore. 

You're Stressed Out or Preoccupied with Something Else
Stress can wreck havoc on your body, and if you're stressed, going out and socializing is likely the last thing you want to do.
The problem is that dealing with stress depends a lot on where it's coming from. The best ways to deal with acute stress are to relax, give yourself some time, and talk it out with those around you. If you're stressed about the social obligation itself, it's not a bad idea to change your expectations, try and stop stress before it starts, and remember that sometimes the best way to deal with it is to do something unusual. Perhaps being sociable is exactly what you need. Some people just plain don't like socializing, and that's totally fine. But on those occasions when you're forced out (or you force yourself out), knowing the reasons why you don't want to socialize, and tackling them ahead of time, can help make the experience much more enjoyable.


Epic Halloween 2012

The Two Coffins
In yonder old cathedral
A lovely coffins lie;
In one, the head of the state lies dead,
And a singer sleeps hard by.

Once had that King great power
And proudly ruled the land--
His crown now is on his brow
And his sword is in his hand.

How sweetly sleeps the singer
With calmly folded eyes,
And on the breast of the bard at rest
The harp that he sounded lies.

The castle walls are falling
And war distracts the land,
But the sword leaps not from that mildewed spot
There in that dead king's hand.

But with every grace of nature
There seems to float along--
To cheer again the hearts of men
The singer's deathless song.

Today is a creepy Halloween’s Celebration! The first Halloween Party in my life was cool. I really enjoyed when I make-over my face with a hard and comedogenic make-up which is worsening my pure face. Maybe that’s the only reason that I have to negate that I love Halloween damn Much! This big commemoration was in IEC *my work place* and I decided to be a vampire desperately which actually inspired by “The Dark Shadow’s Movie” that is a comedy film.
So after teaching, we started decorating the room as creepy and Drippy as possible. Me and Meiny *my teammate* had an idea to take the tree branches to be an object of our decorating idea. As time passed by, We were decorating it as quick as possible as we have only a limit time (2 hr). So, the room is not scary in the end. There’s also no have a sence of a vampire. I think it’s just another random Halloween decors. After finished decorating, we dressed up into the figure that I planned to be, “The Collins”. And this is a final Makeover. 

When the bell rang, it signified the children have come. So we’re ready to welcome children. I putted on my fang and fix my mascara. The first group was scared by us *it’s mainly because Meiny screamed so loud to them XD* but when the second group came and the disastrous Halloween started. First, we lost the clue of the game, mainly because the children took it. Secondly, my mom’s antique glass was broke up because, the children nudged it *I’ll be SAFE until my mom realize it*. Thirdly, the tree’s branches collapsed X(. and finally we didn’t have any decoration left. But overall, today is so awesome. I can’t wait for he next HELLoween. Boooo~ Booooo! Candy! Chocolate! Eh?? (X_x) 


i-Stage Debating and Public Speaking Training

Hey! what's up, buddy! Thank God I've just make a group page of my new company focus "i-Stage". Here's the Description! cekidot!

Motto: Dare Speak on My Stage!

Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain the listeners. It is closely allied to "presenting". Today, people believe that Public Speaking is so important to be mastered and it's counted as the Soft-Skill to boost their career. Therefore, they start to learn about Public Speaking.
 The purpose of public speaking can range from simply transmitting information, to motivating people to act, to simply telling a story. Good orators should be able to change the emotions of their listeners, not just inform them. Public speaking can also be considered a discourse community. Interpersonal communication and public speaking have several components that embrace such things as motivational speaking, leadership/personal development, business, customer service, large group communication, and mass communication. Public speaking can be a powerful tool to use for purposes such as motivation, influence, persuasion, informing, translation, or simply ethos.
Basically, i-Stage is established to guide, coach and enlighten the learner to develop the confidence to Speak-Out your logical opinion and idea on your Stage.
