Celeteque Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer
A new breakthrough from Celeteque claims to reduce 92% of fine lines and wrinkles in just 6 weeks! Celeteque recently launched Celeteque Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer. I still haven't tried it, but testers swear that Celeteque Advanced is really effective. Changes include fresher and smoother looking skin. Some claims that Celeteque's Advance Anti-Wrinkle moisturizer also removed bumps and white heads off her face. I guess it is worth a try. If you want to look younger, use Celeteque Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer. But one thing, I'm not sure if it has SPF. I can't find any SPF indication on the label, so it's better to wear sunblock on top of it. Celeteque Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer (P600) is available in all leading supermarkets, department stores and drug stores nationwide.

Skin Bleaching with Turmeric and Lemon Juice

turmeric lemon juice for skin bleaching
Turmeric, when combined with lemon juice, is one of the few well-known skin whitening treatments. Many people are using this home skin whitening treatment for years. All you have to do is to make a paste out of the lemon juice and turmeric powder mixture. The paste should be reasonably thick. Apply this to your skin and allow it to dry over your skin. Let the turmeric-lemon juice bleaching solution on your skin for an hour. It is better done at night before you get ready to go to bed, because it will really take a lot of your time. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Remember to wash off any excess turmeric powder or it will go too deep into the skin.
