I’m a firm believer that proper skin care is always a good investment. It’s something I’m willing to splurge a little more on because I want to be secure that the things I’m applying to my face will make it better, not cause further damage.
After trying several stuff over the years, I’ve narrowed them down to a couple of items that have proven their consistency and reliability. These are the items that I keep in my skin care regime to date. So now, let me share my top 3 get-happy products for the face:
Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser
This mom-approved and tita-recommended cleanser is a triple scorer for me: it smells nice, it removes makeup easily, and it feels smooth on my skin. I use it before washing my face to prevent any makeup residue from clogging my pores. Not a makeup regular? Don’t dismiss this just yet. If you spend hours out in the streets, whether walking or commuting (hello Metro Manila!), your face becomes more susceptible to dirt. And this trustworthy cleansing classic can take care of that.
Céleteque Dermoscience Sun Care Matte Moisturizer with SPF 30
You can bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow and everyday, there’ll be sun. And along with the sun are UVA and UVB rays that can harm our skin. Sun and harmful UV rays, ergo SPF. I especially like this one because of its protection coverage, along with the light and semi-matte finish which works well on my face. The fact that it’s affordable is definitely a plus. Apply this SPF saver before your foundation or BB cream, or opt to wear it alone on makeup-free days.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream
I’ve been using this night cream since my early 20’s, so believe me when I say that this one’s a keeper. Its creamy texture and light scent are only parts of its appeal. For me, its best feature is the way it makes my skin feel smooth and supple when I wake up in the morning. Oh, and did I mention that this one is rich in antioxidants? So yes dear, you’re stressed out skin will be grateful to have this. To optimize its effect, apply it using your beauty fingers (middle and ring fingers) in a circular upward motion.
Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser and Céleteque Dermoscience Sun Care Matte Moisturizer SPF 30 are both available in leading supermarkets and beauty counters. The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream is available in The Body Shop stores nationwide.
