Brighten up your rainy day – Phuket Fashion



PHUKET: Fashion is full of fleeting trends and new fads. So as the seasons change, it’s time to pick up the clothes that are “in” this season and toss out those that are not.

On a tropical island like Phuket, the rainy season can be a gloomy time of year and somewhat depressing. The best antidote to the bad weather is to wear some floral-patterned clothes that are bright, fun and colorful. They can help bring some life to an otherwise dreary day.

Forget your leather clothes, bags and shoes – which can be easily ruined by water – this rainy season is all about keeping it fun and sweet.

Of course the first item you need on a rainy day is an umbrella. A clear umbrella can be very chick and fashionable and currently popular among the hip Hollywood stars. Also, many use them in photography and fashion shows because they do not hide the look of the clothes being modelled.

Clear umbrellas are made from PVC plastic, so they’re quite durable and will last several seasons. Looking up to the sky with a clear umbrella helps let a bit of light in and will help make you feel a bit different and cool!

One should check the brolly carefully before buying, as an umbrella poorly made will likely be very flimsy, and leak water over you in a heavy downpour.

Long skirts, jeans, or dresses are not the way to go in this season either.

Slightly shorter pieces are much more suitable. Loose-fitting, light and easy-dry clothes are very comfortable and will be practical for the rainy season ahead, as well as waterproof hand bags and rubber footwear.

Lifestyle tip: How to mask your face with yogurt at home

Yogurt not only helps improve your digestion, but it can also be used as a facial moisture and exfoliant to help make your face clearer and softer.

The magical ingredient found naturally in yogurt is zinc, which can help reduce acne, together with mild lactic acid, which itself can assit in the removal of dark spots.

All you need is just some plain natural yogurt, though for even better results one can add some lime juice and honey to help combat an oily facial complexion.

Using yogurt to give yourself an indulgent facial at home is so easy, just follow these simple steps:

  • Clean your face thoroughly
  • Mix one tablespoon of yogurt, one teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of lime
  • Gently cover your face (or just use some plain yogurt if you like)
  • Leave it on, without talking or laughing, for between 10 to 15 minutes
  • Wash with warm water first, and then a final rinse with cold water to tighten the pores

The effects will be seen and felt immediately.
