Pentagram


Merupakan salah satu simbol tertua di dunia. Telah digunakan lebih dari empat ribu tahun sebelum masehi. Menjelaskan arti dari Pentagram sebenarnya seperti mengatakan bagaimana sebuah lagu seharusnya mempengaruhi perasaan seseorang — dan itu berbeda bagi setiap orang. Simbol mengandung arti yang berbeda pada tempat yang berbeda.

Pada awalnya Pentagram adalah simbol religius untuk kaum Pagan. Tapi pada jaman sekarang ini kata Pagan telah hampir disamakan dengan pemujaan setan — salah konsep yang ngawur. Akar katanya adalah dari bahasa latin Paganus, artinya penduduk negri. “Kaum Pagan” secara harafiah berarti orang-orang desa yang tidak ter-indoktrinasi, yang berpegang teguh pada agama pedesaan tua yang menyembah alam. Kenyataannya, Gereja begitu takut akan orang-orang yang tinggal di pedesaan atau juga disebut villes, sehingga kata yang dulu sama sekali tak berbahaya yang artinya “penduduk desa”, yaitu villain, menjadi berarti jiwa jahat.

Pentagram tersebut, merupakan simbol dari jaman sebelum masehi, yang berkaitan dengan pemujaan alam. Para nenek moyang melihat dunia ini sebagai dua bagian — lelaki dan perempuan. Para dewa dan dewi mereka bekerja untuk menjaga keseimbangan kekuatan. Yin dan Yang. Ketika lelaki dan perempuan seimbang, muncul harmoni di dunia ini. Jika mereka tidak seimbang, muncul kekacauan. Pentagram juga mewakili bagian perempuan — sebuah konsep yang oleh para ahli sejarah religius disebut sebagai “perempuan suci” atau “dewi yang hebat”. Pada interpretasi yang khusus, pentagram menyimbolkan Venus — dewi sex, cinta, dan kecantikan perempuan.

Agama yang pertama berdasarkan pada tatanan suci alam. Dewi Venus dan planet Venus adalah satu dan sama. Dewi itu memiliki tempat di langit waktu malam, dan dikenal dengan banyak nama: Venus, Bintang Timur, Ishtar, Astarte — semuanya merupakan konsep perempuan yang kuat dengan ikatan kepada Alam dan Ibu Bumi. Planet Venus sendiri berjalan mengikuti alur pentagram yang sempurna menyeberangi langit eklip setiap delapan tahun. Para leluhur dahulu begitu terpesona menyelidiki fenomena ini, bahwa Venus dan pentagramnya menjadi simbol dari kesempurnaan, kecantikan, dan kualitas peredaran dari cinta seksual. Sebagai penghormatan pada kesaktian Venus, orang-orang Yunani menggunakan siklus delapan tahunnya itu untuk mengorganisasi olimpiade mereka. Sedikit saja orang yang tahu bahwa siklus empat tahuan olimpiade modern masih mengikuti setengah siklus Venus. Bahkan, lebih sedikit orang yang tahu bahwa bintang segi lima hampir telah menjadi segel resmi olimpiade namun dimodifikasi pada akhirnya — lima titiknya ditukar dengan lima lingkaran yang saling memotong untuk merefleksikan dengan lebih baik jiwa permainan, yaitu keterbukaan dan harmoni.

Saat ini, bintang berisi lima merupakan sebuah klise virtual dalam film-film pembunuhan berantai berlatar setan. Gambar bintang seperti itu biasanya dicoretkan pada dinding apartemen seorang pemuja setan bersama dengan simbol-simbol lain yang diduga bersifat setan. Sesungguhnya, simbol pentagram bersifat sangat ke-Tuhanan. Interpretasi pentagram sebagai simbol setan adalah salah secara historis. Makna feminimnya yang asli adalah benar, tetapi simbolisme pentagram telah dirusak selama lebih dari seribu tahun. Dalam kasus ini dirusak oleh coretan darah. Gerejalah yang mengubah arti sejati dari pentagram. Lebih tepatnya, Gereja Katolik Roma pada masa-masa awal. Sebagai bagian dari kampanye Vatikan untuk membasmi agama Pagan dan mengembalikan rakyat ke agama Kristen, Gereja mengadakan kampanye fitnahan melawan pemuja dewa dan dewi, menjadikan simbol-simbol ketuhanan pagan sebagai kejahatan. Hal seperti ini sangat biasa pada masa kekacauan. Sebuah kekuatan baru yang muncul akan mengambil alih simbol-simbol yang sudah ada dan merendahkannya secara berangsur-angsur dengan maksud menghapus arti simbol-simbol tersebut. Dalam peperangan antara simbol pagan dan kristen, pagan kalah; tombak bermata tiga milik Poseidon menjadi garpu setan, topi bijak yang meruncing ke atas menjadi simbol tukang sihir, dan pentagram Venus menjadi tanda setan. Lebih parah lagi, militer Amerika Serikat juga menyesatkan arti pentagram; sekarang simbol yang paling disukai untuk perang adalah Pentagram. Mereka memasangnya pada jet-jet tempur dan menggantungkannya pada bahu para jendral. Ini sangat keterlaluan bagi dewi cinta dan kecantikan.

Denuvo – The Anti Tamper


Sekilas tentang Denuvo, sistem anti-tamper yang bikin pembajak game kalang kabut

 

Beberapa tahun belakangan ini bukanlah tahun yang bersahabat bagi pengguna game bajakan untuk perangkat PC (Personal Computer). Sebuah sistem DRM terbaru bernama Denuvo telah dikembangkan dan terbukti efektif dalam melindungi berbagai game-game yang memakainya. Meskipun terbukti proteksi Denuvo bisa di bobol di beberapa game, tetapi itu hanya sebagian kecil saja dari total semua game yang telah terproteksi.

 

Denuvo atau juga disebut Denuvo Anti-Tamper merupakan sistem DRM (Digital Rights Management) yang dikembangkan oleh Denuvo Software Solutions GmbH, sebuah perusahaan software asal Austria, dimana perusahaan ini merupakan bentukan dari Sony Digital Audio Disc Corporation (Sony DADC) yang merupakan anak perusahaan elektronik raksasa dari Jepang Sony, yang bergerak di bidang produksi kepingan Compact Disc, DVD, UMD, dan Blu-ray. Sedangkan software anti-tamper adalah teknologi yang memungkinkan sebuah software sangat sulit dimodifikasi atau mengalami malfungsi jika mengalami modifikasi secara ilegal.

 

Sony DADC sebelumnya juga yang mengembangkan secuROM, produk DRM yang selama ini diaplikasikan di banyak software, game dan produk CD dan DVD film. Seperti produk DRM lainnya, SecuROM bertujuan memproteksi perangkat dari tindakan pembajakan seperti duplikasi dan melindungi berbagai informasi data dari sebuah software. Namun kenyataannya SecuROM sendiri banyak memiliki kelemahan seperti proteksi yang mudah ditembus, aktivasi sering bermasalah, aplikasi sering tidak jalan, dan lainnya. Beberapa game yang menggunakan SecuROM antara lain BioShock, Mass Effect, Dragon Age II, dan lainnya.

 

Bisa dikatakan Denuvo sendiri merupakan suksesor dari SecuROM, tetapi dengan metode proteksi yang berbeda. Dari total 50 buah game yang dinaungi Denuvo, hanya 10 buah yang berhasil dibajak sempurna dan itupun rata-rata dalam hitungan bulan, sedangkan sisanya belum berhasil dibajak sama sekali. Kalaupun bisa dibobol, biasanya pelaku hanya melakukan bypass dengan memanfaatkan celah di sistem Steam. Memang proteksi DRM hanyalah sekedar penghambat pembajakan karena selama ini tidak ada DRM yang bisa menjamin 100% keamanan sebuah game, karena para pembajak juga semakin pintar. Namun, hasil yang dicapai oleh Denuvo merupakan sebuah prestasi tersendiri sehingga tidak heran banyak developer game yang mulai meliriknya.

 

Lantas apa rahasia Denuvo bisa begitu efektif menghambat pembajakan? Tentu saja cara kerja Denuvo yang merupakan software anti-tamper dirahasiakan oleh pengembangnya. Namun pihak pengembang sendiri memberikan sedikit bocoran bahwa proteksi mereka “mampu melakukan enkripsi dan dekripsi data secara mandiri” sehingga sangat sulit dibajak. Enkripsi adalah proses pengaman suatu data yang disembunyikan atau proses konversi format data menjadi bentuk yang tidak dapat dibaca, sedangkan dekripsi adalah kebalikannya. Pihak Denuvo juga menambahkan bahwa sebuah teknologi jika tidak melakukan enkripsi secara berkala akan sangat rentan dari sisi keamanan.

 

Testimoni lain datang dari 3DM, grup pembajak game dari China. 3DM sebelumnya telah berhasil membajak game yang pertama kali memakai Denuvo yaitu FIFA 15, mengatakan kalau proteksi Denuvo melibatkan sistem enkripsi 64 bit yang menggunakan kode kriptografi yang unik pada hardware yang berbeda-beda. Kriptografi merupakan metode menyembunyikan suatu rangkaian informasi agar tidak bisa dibaca oleh pihak ketiga. Sedangkan pada metode kriptografi modern, biasanya menggunakan susunan algoritma yang rumit yang diproses memakai komputer. Kemungkinan hal inilah yang menyebabkan 3DM membutuhkan waktu berbulan-bulan untuk membajak sempurna game FIFA 15.

 

Sistem proteksi software semacam Denuvo sudah pasti akan menjadi sasaran para pembajak yang berusaha membobolnya. Tapi kenyataannya beberapa kelompok pembajak yang terkenal hampir semua bertekuk lutut pada Denuvo. Awalnya hanya 3DM yang berhasil membobol proteksi Denuvo dan membajak sempurna game FIFA 15, Lords of the Fallen, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Mad Max dan Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Meskipun beberapa game tersebut membutuhkan waktu cukup lama untuk dibajak sempurna tapi 3DM tetap diperhitungkan sebagai penantang terkuat bagi Denuvo.

 

Tapi sebuah hal yang mengejutkan terjadi, sekitar akhir tahun 2015, sebuah grup pembajak yang berasal dari Italia bernama CONSPIRACY (CPY) secara tiba-tiba berhasil membajak sempurna dua game Denuvo yaitu Battlefield: Hardline dan Batman: Arkham Knight. Sedangkan pihak 3DM sendiri pada awal 2016 justru memberikan kejutan lain dengan memberi pernyataan bahwa mereka menyerah dalam usaha membobol Denuvo, menyusul kegagalan mereka dalam membajak game Denuvo lainnya, Just Cause 3. 3DM juga menyatakan kalau melihat teknologi enkripsi sekarang ini, akan semakin sulit dalam membajak sebuah game dan dalam dua tahun kedepan game bajakan merupakan hal yang mustahil. Dan mereka memutuskan menghentikan semua aktivitas pembajakan.

 

Mundurnya 3DM ternyata memunculkan para pembajak baru yang mencoba membobol Denuvo. Bulan Agustus 2016, grup pembajak bernama Voksi berhasil membobol proteksi Denuvo pada game Doom. Tapi yang dilakukan Voksi ternyata memanfaatkan celah yang ada di Steam, dan dengan cepat berhasil diatasi oleh Steam. Tak disangka CPY beraksi kembali dan berhasil membobol Denuvo dengan sempurna game Denuvo lainnya, yaitu Rise of the Tomb Raider dan dua buah game lagi secara berturut-turut yaitu Inside dan Doom yang sebelumnya diretas oleh Voksi. Apakah awal dari kehancuran Denuvo? Masih terlalu dini untuk menyimpulkan karena kenyataannya game-game yang berhasil dibajak oleh 3DM dan CPY hanya sebagian kecil dari keseluruhan game yang dinaungi oleh Denuvo.

 

Tapi yang jelas dengan munculnya CPY dan Voksi serta bobolnya Denuvo di beberapa game, semakin mempertegas bahwa perang antara developer game dengan para pembajak tidak akan pernah padam. Para pembajak yang bisa diibaratkan para penjahat super pintar, yang selalu punya taktik baru dan tidak pernah menyerah dalam mencari celah pada sistem keamanan secanggih apapun.

Sunday Lunch at The Seminyak


The ‘famous’ Sunday Lunch at The Seminyak Resort and Spa Bali is nothing short of a culinary masterpiece and something that should not be missed if you are visiting Bali. Whilst brunch is not a traditional Bali fare, you will find that The Seminyak Resort and Spa has taken the brunch concept with both hands, made it their own and in the process has created something unrivalled. Talented world renowned chefs preside over the Santan kitchen delighting foodies with their magnificent buffet, a classy a la carte menu, and a selection of dishes from the chef’s choice. The brunch can be enjoyed over four hours, with or without alcohol.

THE EXPERIENCE

I first heard about the Sunday brunch at Santan Restaurant through a friend who had showed me some pictures of the buffet and The Seminyak Resort itself. I admit I looked at his photos with complete envy – the displays of the desserts alone were enough to have me sold and I was making this a destination on my Bali itinerary.
Once I was in Bali, I rang the resort a couple of days prior to book a table for myself and was able to secure one easily. Once again going to Bali in end-September is a fairly quiet time in Bali, so if you were to go in the height of summer you might have to book well in advance.
On the Sunday morning I jumped into a taxi, as I was coming from Jimbaran, at about 12 p.m and the journey to Seminyak took approximately 40 minutes. The Sunday lunch begins at 1 p.m and you will be grazing for about two hours if you so desire. Given this fact, one must really prepare for this brunch experience and I would strongly advise that you skip breakfast or at the very least eat a light one, otherwise you will be doing yourself an injustice.
The lunch is held in the Santan restaurant which is located at the garden area of the resort, overlooking the pool and the beach. As you wander through the resort you will really see how extravagant and luxurious the resort really is. I was quite fascinated with the towering stone statues that over look the pools, and I found myself snapping away with the camera before I had to remind myself that I had come for lunch!

SUNDAY LUNCH AT SANTAN RESTAURANT

I was greeted at the door by a staff member of Santan, she asked for my name and checked it against her booking list. I was then escorted to my table which faced the large windows overlooking the impressive garden area. I was shown the menu and the lady looking after me explained how it all worked and asked me what option I would like to go with.

You will also receive the chef’s selection of freshly cooked small plated meals that are not on the menu – they tend to come out as a surprise. The meal is extraordinary and offers many authentic local cuisines – all fresh and very tasty.
Once the formalities were done with and my order was taken, I immediately gravitated toward the dessert display. Everything was perfectly put in place and when one item was taken another was quickly put in the missing spot. I did actually see guests go and start with dessert straight up as they did look irresistible!

Now first up I decided that I would begin with the local menu and then I would order something off the appetizer menu as I knew I wouldn’t be able to do a main as well as the buffet, and I certainly wanted to have room for those desserts. The savoury selection included entree style dishes including tuna tartare, squid, chicken, a selection of cured meats and meats from the carvery. There were also vegetarian options.

Another chef’s choice – The beef filled ravioli.
At this point I was pretty much full with all this delicious food and honestly I needed a little rest before I decided to tackle the dessert.
Whilst I was eating my crispy ice-cream (which was delicious) another of the ‘chef’s choice’ arrived, this time it was chicken skewers and I had to refuse. My stomach was expanding at a rapid rate by now and I had moved on to dessert already.  As my server could see that I was having a dessert she asked me what type of ice-cream would I like and seriously I don’t know why I said chocolate as I knew I couldn’t fit it in along with the lunch desserts I was going to get. So I took a break from eating for a little while and just sat and admired the view as I was seated at the window overlooking the garden.

So after lunch I needed to walk all this food off – I felt like I was carrying a food baby. I fixed up my bill and spent around ten minutes photographing the room. As I was leaving the staff member who greeted me at the door enquired as to how I enjoyed the lunch, of course I said it was magnificent. She thanked me personally by my name – Miss Made. I was impressed that this lady made a point of remembering my name, especially when there are a lot of people dining at this restaurant. I walked away with a rather large smile on my face.

What’s resting bitch face ?


I am not a bitch but my face would tell you otherwise.

In 2012, I was self-diagnosed with CBF: Chronic Bitch Face. The disease often lurks on innocent people who are genuinely happy with their lives, but once they contract it, it is almost impossible to recover.

The disease is not discriminatory to age, so any people could become infected. The beginning stages of CBF affect the peoplel’s facial expression with symptoms such as emotionless eyes, raised eyebrows, and/or a harsh face. If not caught early, the disease can in fact affect the way a people walks, making them look like they have a stick up their asses.

I have battled to overcome many obstacles over the past 3 years with this debilitating sickness since I look like an effin’ asshole 90% of the time.

If I am not smiling and/or laughing, my face screams, “I’m a dick!!!” which leads to questions such as “Are you okay?” or “Is something wrong?” God dammit, I’m all right. I’m just restin’ my face for a little.

Throughout this journey, I have met others who suffer from CBF, and we have concluded that if you relate with the following scenarios, you may also be infected:

1. You are constantly asked: “Are you alright? “Is something wrong?” “Did you just murder a family?”

2. You’re told to cheer the fuck up, which just pisses you the fuck off

3. When people meet you for the first time, they’re surprised that you’re actually a decent human being and not the spawn of Satan

4. Men are intimidated by you and think that they’ll burst into flames if they touch you

5. For women, everyone thinks you have your period 24/7 (if you do, please consult a doctor, STAT)

6. Your employees don’t invite you to lunch because you look like a walking statue in the office

7. No one asks to “work in” on a machine at the gym because you might actually spit in their face

8. You get free onion rings at Burger Kings because the employees thinks you’d cut a bitch if you were charged

9. People think you drive a Harley Davidson (but you’re a proud owner of a Prius)

10. You’re really just a cool person who occasionally has an asshole for a face. Own the bitch face—just don’t be a bitch.

11. Okay, you can be a bitch…sometimes.

Deep condolences


Most people including my parents would assume that I appear quite, cold and reserved because I was born this way. What they might not be able to understand is I analyze everything from alpha to omega, process all the information with precise calculations, observe my surroundings, being thoughtful, expand my awareness to the planes or points that still become misery and will be explored later decades from today.

It amuses me how most mortals only use max. 10% of their brain capacity. And by that, only Einstein, Tesla, Davinci and other great people who able to reach 10% of their capacities to discover the existence in global scale, just to aware if Milkyway Galaxy is already big enough and still no one able to explore it all, there has IC1101 as the largest galaxy we could ever admit until this moment.

Other than that, it also elevate my knowledge in understanding humanity on this earth. As if they are really deserved a chance to alive to this world, to this plane, to the existence. And all they would be able to do after they were given a chance are either being destructive to each others, enslaved themselves, suffer and keep surviving or war over religions. Fight and killing to prove that their Gods are the best, they ignore every probabilities that Gods are just metaphor for the Universe.
Something that no other beings able to explain what/who is the Universe, when was it start, where is its end, and how far is its limit.

Islam might called the religion of peace, and if 60% of its people are corrupted, while the other 40% do nothing to regenerate or evolve those corrupted, instead of waiting to get infected later.. It lost the essence already.

I wonder what would Mohammed aware and learn after all these chaos, destructive and hatred to the civilizations or simply humanity, he started hundred years ago by declaring himself as a Prophet.

May those innocent souls in Pakistan, rest in peace.

Blood Type Skincare & Make Up


If You Are Blood Type A

For a person with blood type A, the most important foods for maintaining nutritional balance are cereals. Your body’s composition of starch and sugar is simpler compared to other blood types, and you only need to eat the most basic of foods to maintain a decent standard of health. You don’t suit eating a lot of meats because your ability to absorb fats is far inferior to those of other blood types. “Lots of veg, little meat,” will allow you to keep your skin in a good state. You don’t sweat a whole lot, even in the summer, nor do you have issues with shininess. The pores on your face are small; don’t use too much foundation, and you can still have comparatively good skin.

Use lots of olive oil: Olive oil is the kind of base oil used in make-up. For blood type As with small, thin pores, and who sweat little, too many chemical ingredients will cause your skin stress. Unscented olive oils have naturally oil-soluble vitamins to nourish the skin of a blood type A. We suggest you use refined olive oils. This type of olive oil will provide your skin’s cells with a unique fatty acid, making your skin appear more smooth and supple.

Skin protection begins with warmth: Making a habit of eating veggies will give people with blood type A a relatively lower basis body temperature compared to other blood types. In a slightly cooler state our skin tightens, and when the skin is tense, it can cause fine lines to form. Skin specialists suggest that if you are a person with blood type A, don’t wear your summer clothes too far into early fall. Just by keeping yourself warm, you can have younger, healthier-looking skin.

Use a light-coverage, breathable, foundation: The purpose of foundation is to conceal your facial flaws, to make skin appear finer and smoother, and to promote a healthy skin color. Blood type As, with their small pores, should especially pay attention to foundation color. When you lack sleep or when skin is dark and dull, use a brightening, illuminating foundation. But if you’re particularly happy with your own skin, just choose a light, breathable foundation. Heavy layers of foundation can clog pores, inhibiting your skin’s ability to breathe freely, instead, reducing your skin’s beautiful natural advantages. Additionally, the moisture content within the lens of A’s eyes is comparatively higher so to play up your natural advantages, emphasize your eye make-up to give you the enchanting eyes of a goddess.

If You Are Blood Type B

Blood type experts guess that B blood types originated from the nomadic people from mountainous regions. As a result, because original environments were varied, Bs can better absorb and ingest more types of foods compared to other blood types. Their digestive ability is generally better than the other 3 blood types. B’s skin tone is usually relatively shallow. The skin cuticle is thinner, so the state of the skin changes like moods. Your skin is of the sensitive type; the slightest change, like the gentle rustle of grass in the wind, can cause you irritation.

Choose a mildly acidic cleanser: B’s rate of metabolism is relatively fast, so your skin might product more oil. Experts recommend that if you are blood type B to use a mildly acidic cleanser. First of all, using this kind of cleanser will give you clearer, rejuvenated skin, removing dirt from your pores.  Secondly, the pH of the skin on a blood type B’s face is between 4.8 and 5.6, already slightly acidic. Using a cleanser similar to your skin’s pH to cleanse and purify will give you a clearer, more rejuvenated result. Moreover, for sensitive skinned B’s, alkali cleansing milks will often irritate the skin’s surface, making it prone to outbreaks and inflammation. SELF especially doesn’t recommend you use scented soaps to wash your face.

Choose exfoliating products: Scrubs will make your skin fine and smoother, giving it a glow. But B’s have thinner skin, so it’s especially important to be careful when choosing a scrub. We recommend that you do not choose scrubs with exfoliating beads that are too coarse, because when you exfoliate, they could damage the skin cells, causing fine lines to form. When you pay attention to your neck, use an upward or downward rubbing motion utilizing natural resistance. But not every area can take exfoliation. If the sides of your nostrils are more sensitive, turning red with the slightest breeze, thus illustrating a thinner skin cuticle, avoid scrubbing too much in those areas.

Use gold to brighten your face color: Color experts call B’s “Golden People” because they are lively, dynamic, and sparkle amongst a crowd. The dark gold family of colors suit the exuberant B’s. When you apply base color, blend a buildable highlighting powder with your liquid foundation, creating a brilliant pearly finish. For the cheeks, blend liquid blush with highlighter to create a beautiful, glowing, rosy tint. Additionally, shimmery brown shadows harmonize well with a gold mascara, resulting in a beautiful effect that will draw all eyes to you in any crowd.

Use “slow eat” application method: There’s an interesting finding by the cosmetology research center saying that of all women, B’s take the least time to do their makeup. This has to do with their naturally restless character. But if you want your makeup to be sophisticated and refined, we suggest you slow the tempo down! This year the global trend is all about a slower pace, and makeup artists are applying it to their work. No matter what you apply on the face, remember to first put some in the palm of your hand, then use warm fingertips to lightly tap the product onto the face. If you coordinate with a massaging action, you’ll get even better results. If you use a “slow eat” technique, you’ll be amazed at what you see: that actually makeup is a slow, magical art.

If You Are Blood Type AB:

The AB blood type is the most recently discovered/classified of the four blood types. If you are an AB, you often have a better ability to adapt. The AB’s skin’s ability to protect itself from the sun is relatively good. Due to AB’s tendency to act mature for their age, the rate that the skin ages can also appear faster. AB’s belong to the mucus type, so their “qi” (or blood circulation/energy flow) is not too good, so the likelihood of anaemia or other such ailments occurring is high. According to expert’s analysis, the pale, sickly/frail beautiful Lin Dai Yu (ancient Chinese beauty of lore) was an AB.

Minimize the use of tap water to wash the face: Due to your maturity, competence, and ability to adapt, you are often one step of your peers when it comes to your career. At the same time, be careful, there is a tendency for expression lines to appear on your face and signs of aging to emerge. Be careful when choosing water to wash your face. Tap water tends to be “hard water,” and aside from the fact that it lacks beneficial minerals, it also contains a lot of impurities, easily causing your skin to age. Mineral spring water is the best choice, but using mineral spring water every day to wash your face is not too realistic. So SELF suggests that if you are blood type AB, to use boiled tap water to wash your face. Everyday after boiling water be sure to discard the old water and scale from the bottom of the kettle. Additionally, when water is at a temperature of approximately 42 degrees celsius, it’s the most comfortable for your skin.

Apply egg whites to your face: Egg whites contain precious nutritional content. It affects the skin by replenishing nutritional substances, and for AB’s who often have an unbalanced “qi”, egg whites also promoted the red blood cells’ ability to absorb oxygen. Applying egg white on the face is a fave trick of Korean celeb 金喜善, who’s been doing this since she was 20. She, an AB, listens to her private specialist’s suggestions, and everyday applies egg white to her face, so while she improves her skin’s inner glow, she’s also delaying her skin’s aging. Every time you apply the egg white, it is best to apply for about one minute. If you keep the egg white on your face too long, it will pull the moisture from your skin’s cells, drying out your skin. Make sure you wash the egg white off before it’s fully dry, that way not only will you prevent your skin’s moisture from being washed away, you will still be able to absorb all the benefits.

Use bright nail polish: due to issues with blood “qi” (or circulation/energy flow), if you’re a person with blood type AB you will often have pale face color. But in the East where fair is beautiful, a fairer skin tone matches perfectly with bright cosmetics, instead, making you really stand out in a spectacular way. A pair of hands is  like a woman’s second face. Beauty experts recommend that if you are blood type AB to use brightly colored nail polish. Delicate, long, fair ten fingers suit red, purple or chocolate-brown, etc. hues of dazzling polish color, and can really lift your mood. After applying the color, you can also apply a layer of clear polish. This way you protect your nail polish color for longer, keeping it bright. Additionally, if you’re always using your hands, you’ll likely cause wear and tear on the ends of your nail polish color. When this situation occurs, we suggest you use a bit of silver color, and in the style of a French manicure, draw on a border. Thus creating an unexpected beautiful nail result.

Use concealer correctly: Blood type AB’s are sure to be careful of their public image. If you want to stay fair for others, maintaining a perfect, beautiful image, you need to ensure that you don’t have any spots on your skin’s surface, deducting points from your skin quality. If you have pimples on the surface of your face, we recommend lightly applying a concealer pen, using your fingertips to pat it in. Definitely do not apply it too thickly. For swollen pimples, choosing a green-based color concealer is most effective. SELF suggests that you don’t use concealer on inflamed or open pimples, not only will you not be able to properly conceal it, but you’ll also allow it to become infected with bacteria.

If you are blood type O:

Traditional blood type experts think O is the oldest of all blood types, with the constitution of our hunter ancestors from ancient times. Type Os often love eating meats and other high protein foods. Present-day Eskimos are mostly blood type Os, and they generally have better body strength and skin with an impressive ability to withstand the cold. But because of the increased ability to absorb/ingest meats, Os pores are generally coarser, they sweat often, and their skin’s ability to protect itself from the sun is not very good. Compared to other blood types, O’s skin is more likely to dry up.

Get your beauty sleep every night: For people with blood type O, getting sleep is extremely important. The skin’s ability to restore itself is at it’s greatest between 2 – 3am in the morning and 1 – 2pm in the afternoon. Therefore, even though your job may be busy, skin professionals still recommend that if you are blood type O you should be getting to bed before 2am. Furthermore, you only need to sleep continuously for 8 hours straight, and you won’t have too many issues with your skin.

Moreoever, getting 45-60 minutes sleep in the afternoon is also beneficial for your skin. But sleep too long and you’ll “hypnotize” your cells, causing them to take longer to adjust back to the environment when you awaken, thus causing your skin to dull.

Avoid using foaming cleansers: Foaming cleansers are not for everyone. For blood type Os, the skin already releases a lot of oil and sweat, and using a foaming cleanser will bring about more oil and moisture making your skin taut so far as to dry it out. As much as possible, choose a milder cleansing lotion or gel cleanser. When washing your face use a massaging motion, prolonging washing time as appropriate, making it just as effective as using a product that lathers.

Use products that contain SPF: Don’t assume the sun is only at work during the summer! Blood type O’s skin’s ability to protect from the sun is not good. Choose products that contain SPF. During early fall, using makeup with around SPF 15 is sufficient. During the winter, we suggest you use a foundation with an SPF of around 10.

Use a highlighting pen to accent your features: People with blood type O originated from hunters, due to their ancient ancestors’ diet and lifestyle, O’s often have bigger builds and more prominent features. Use pen-style highlighting product to make your 3D features stand out, attracting more attention. When using a highlighter, try drawing a line along the bridge of your nose, then use to your fingertips to tap evenly tap it in. Under light, your nose will look even more pronounced. But don’t, whatever you do, apply on the tip of your nose, otherwise you’ll make your nostrils look massive. Also, a highlighter can be used between your eyebrows, underneath your eyes, in the center of your cheeks, and below, etc. The pearly ingredients will attract refracting beams of light, giving your skin a more vivid and full of life 3D effect, swiftly making you the center of any crowd’s attention.
