You may be living a #fit life, getting on the poke bowl trends and working out like a #fitspo but the scale just keeps going up!
Are you committing these 6 bad habits that are leading to weight gain without even knowing it?
Chewing your food slowly and carefully is not only safer but also aids in digestion. Clinical studies found that those who ate fast consumed 3 times more food than those who ate slowly. As your stomach generally takes 20 minutes to signal your brain that you're full, you should chew your food 20 times in each bite. Eat slowly and stop until you feel satisfied – not full.
Sleeping less than 7 hours per day can disrupt the hunger hormones, by producing more ghrelin and less leptin. In summary, ghrelin is appetite-stimulating, leptin is appetite-suppressing. That’s how our body are triggered into overeating and as a result, putting on weight. Sleep loss is also accompanied by a cortisol spike, which in turn increases your body fat storage to conserve energy.
If you think skipping your morning breakfast will help you shed a few pounds, you might be mistaken. A research team from Imperial College London found out that forgoing the first meal of the day increases your risk for weight gain by tricking your brain into thinking you want higher-calorie foods - food that can make you fat.
When dehydrated, it interferes with our body’s metabolism and ability to burn fat. This leads to excessive fat storage in your body, especially around your belly. Without the necessary amount of water, toxins will starting accumulating in our body and wastes move through the large intestines more slowly, resulting in infections and constipation. So make sure to drink at least 2 litres of water every day!
The calories and fat in your favourite toppings such as cheese, creamy dressings and fried chicken can really kick up the calorie count. You should opt for low-fat condiments like low-fat mayo, lemon juice, hummus, or even a slice or two of avocado to add more flavour or moisture to your salad or sandwiches. For cheese lovers, try lower-fat variety such as Swiss, and avoid high-fat cheeses like cheddar.
Lose the extra bulge the healthy way by taking Kinohimitsu's range of weight management products.

Most people loves Bali. Sandy beach, clear blue skies, amazing food - what’s not to love about Bali? A hot destination for yoga and fitness retreats too, they have one of the world’s prettiest cafes too. If you’re into outdoors, try conquering Mount Agung, the highest point in Bali and the fifth highest volcano in Indonesia. Going for a unique experience? Try staying at Ubud, known for their beautiful views of rice paddy fields.
With hundreds of islands in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea, every island has its own unique beauty. It is no wonder the country remains one of the top choices for holidaymakers. Koh Samui is a popular destination, known for their luxurious resorts and clear blue waters. Take a boat out to the nearby islands to snorkel, kayak and dive!
There’s more to Japan than just Tokyo and ramen, it is a country of beautiful mountains covered with abundant greenery. Hit the countryside for an authentic onsen experience. The best time to go would be during their spring/autumn which falls between March - May, when you get to experience the country’s beautiful white and pink cherry blossom.
4) Cebu, Philippines
They say it’s better in the Philippines. We agree wholeheartedly after browsing through some breathtaking photographs taken at Cebu! Relax and rejuvenate at some of their luxurious spa resorts overlooking the sea, whereby you get to live like a king. There’s also gorgeous national parks that you get to explore. Don’t forget Kawasan Falls when you’re in that area too - we’ve heard so much stories about their turquoise blue waters!
Another popular holiday destination, Taiwan is well-known for its gorgeous landscape as well. Take a breather, and head here for its yummy local delicacies. Not only that, go for their farmstays and get away from the city life. Go for a hike at Hualien’s Taroko Gorge National Park, visit their Alpaca Cafe at Taipei, and visit their National Palace Museum. There’s so much things to do in Taiwan!
While holidaying and soaking up the sun, don’t forget to protect your skin from harmful UV rays too! When our skin is exposed to UV rays, pigmentations, fine lines and other skin problems will occur.
Kinohimitsu UV Bright offers up to 9 hours of UV protection against harmful sun rays, while brightening your skin at the same time.

We know it’s impossible to wake up at 5 in the morning to get your makeup and hair freshly done and step out of the house looking like Singapore’s next top model. Most of us would rather save the time to sleep in instead. We asked 5 of our friends at Kinohimitsu to share with us their beauty tip to save time in the morning.
“When my skin needs a quick hydration boost, I’d do a toner mask. Here’s how: soak three cotton pads with your choice of toner and place them on your smile lines and forehead. This ensures your skin will be hydrated and prevent it from being dry and flaky too!”
2) Eyelash Extensions
“I have naturally thin and short lashes so I will never leave the house without applying eyeliner to make my eyes pop. Before I was introduced to eyelash extensions, I spend about 15 minutes drawing the perfect winged eyeliner and this can be a hassle in the mornings, especially if you are in a rush. Eyelash extensions saved me a lot of time and convenience. It gives me fuller and thicker lashes, thus creating the eyeliner look. I do not even have to apply any eye makeup to look good every day!”
3) Fill in Your Eyebrows with Eyeshadow
“I spend a lot of time drawing my brows - so when I’m in a rush, I’ll just fill my sparse eyebrows with matte brown eyeshadow, choosing a shade lighter than my hair. It gives a natural yet groomed look on the go.”
4) Products that do Double-Duty
5) Cold Spoon
“If I’ve puffy eyes in the morning, I’ll place a cold spoon (spoon placed in the freezer for 15 minutes) against my eyes in the morning for at least 5 minutes to reduce puffiness around the eyes before putting makeup. It works miraculously!”
If you’re looking for a quick beauty boost, try taking Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond the night before.

How does it work?
Eating out often and sleeping late at night tends to accumulate toxins in our bodies, in which interferes with our body's natural ability to burn fat, leading to weight gain. When our body is loaded with toxins, we may also experience headaches, leaky gut, sleep problems and lack of energy. It’s our body’s way of telling us to go on a detox.
Load up on these food with naturally detoxifying and cleansing properties.
This pungent smelling food sure packs a power punch of nutrition! Not only do they go well with dishes, they are also high in antioxidants, which help fight the free radicals in your bloodstream that are responsible for some of the effects of aging. Studies have even shown that garlic has some use in preventing the common cold, boosting our immune system and helps lower our cholesterol level as well.
Citrus fruits such as lemon help to flush out toxins from the body and help to improve the digestion system within our body with enzymatic processes. Rich in phytonutrients and pectin, it helps to lower liver cholesterol levels and detox our liver. Studies have also shown that the juice from lemons can also decrease kidney stones. Start your morning with a warm glass of water to reap the full benefits.
Onions are reach in vitaminc C, which helps to improve immunity and reduce inflammation in our body. They’re also rich in sulfur-containing compounds (which explains their strong odor) which assist the body in flushing out toxins, especially from the liver. Its anti-bacterial properties also help to cleanse environmental toxins, which can lead to cancer over time.
Commonly used in Indian cuisine, studies have shown that this mustard-coloured spice helps the liver to detox waste and reduce inflammation in our body as well. Too much toxins accumulated in our blood can lead to symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, bad breath and acne, turmeric also helps to clear toxins from our blood. Give your digestive system a kick in the morning with a glass of warm lemon water, added with a dash of turmeric!
5) Green Tea
You’ve heard about the fat burning properties of green tea, but do you know that it’s a great for detoxing your body too? It's high in catechin, a flavonoid which help with liver functions and also boosts the production of detoxification enzymes, which is crucial for our body’s immune system to fight against cancer-causing chemicals and other toxins too.

If there's one step in our skincare regimen that we should NEVER miss, it'd have to be sunscreen. Read below to find out why.
1) Prevent Skin Cancer
The number 1 reason - skin cancer! Excessive amount of UV rays can lead to various types of skin cancer especially melanoma which can be life threatening for women who are in their 20s. Applying sunscreen helps to form a shield for your skin, protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. Further more, studies have proven that applying sunscreen helps to decrease the development of skin cancer.
2) Prevent facial pigmentations and skin discolorations
We all know that the sun causes unsightly pigmentation and skin discolouration. The real culprit is the sun's harmful UV rays that produce free radicals that attack our skin cells and diminish our skin's radiance.
3) Prevent Premature Ageing (Wrinkles on skin)
Applying a liberal amount of sunscreen helps to protect your skin from developing wrinkles and fine lines. Studies have shown that people below the age of 55 who used sunscreen had 24% lesser chances of developing these aging signs than non-sunscreen and occasional sunscreen users.
4) Reduce Skin Sensitivity
When exposed to the sun, our skin can get sensitive over time - thus resulting in skin blotchiness and redness. Sun exposure can actually make breakouts worse in some people who are prone to acne too. It also decreases the healing time for your scars, so load up on your sunscreen!
5) Better Skin Health
Most of us (or.. all of us? 😂) want to have younger looking, radiant and healthy skin. Being exposed to the sun for a long time can cause sunburn, which can weaken your skin, subjecting it more to bruises. The aftermath of a sunburn - such as peeling and reddening usually means that your skin cells are most likely damaged due to prolonged exposure to UV rays.
The American Cancer Society explains that you should look for a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum UV coverage and has a sun protection factor, or SPF of at least 15. Reapply your sunscreen every hour if you're swimming or physical activities that make you sweat.
For a long-lasting protection, try Kinohimitsu UV Bright, with UV protection of up to 9 hours. Not only does it offer protection for your skin, it helps to restore your skin's fairness; on your face and your body.
Rich in Grape Seed Extract and effective whitening ingredients such as Grape Polyphenols, Apple Polyphenols and Vitamin C, you can now achieve brighter, fairer and clearer luminous skin within the short span of 6 days.
