Nightly Ritual: My Skin Care Routine
I have this terrible habit of staying up late – which I used to think was the reason for my bad skin. I tried everything to improve it but nothing seemed to work. While it’s (fairly) common knowledge that going to bed without washing your face is unacceptable, I never really knew what a proper “Night Skincare Routine” was. Basically, it’s tailored to your own situation. New skin cells grow faster while you sleep, so a good evening facial routine should be a high priority. At night, the goal is to repair damage from the day’s pollution, sun and stress, as well as to hydrate since you lose more water from your skin. Read on my tips!

Sun protection on a cloudy day: Ya or nah?
Although it’s not as much as we expected, it’s been moderately rainy in Manila. I find myself scavenging for light knits and sweaters to cover up but here’s the question – do we still need to lather up on the sun protection?

On my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was fascinated by the wide array of products inside their drugstores. I picked up a pack of pimple stickers (yes, those exist) cos I was badly breaking out and I bought an extra one cos I thought we didn’t have it here. Behold! Watson’s makes it accessible for us with these exclusive products and help us solve our skincare concerns!

It’s not like we don’t hear it enough from our mom’s – “always take care of your skin.” She was pertaining to starting young and our generation being lucky by easily accessing information and products about skin care. To get ahead of the race, I was so excited to try that latest innovation from Olay: #MiracleDuo. It consists of Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence and Micro-sculpting Cream – formulations from one of of the world’s most trusted skin care brands, Olay! Whenever I see women in their 30’s, 40’s and even 50’s looking incredibly younger – I think, “Well, I guess it doesn’t hurt to aim for that!” ;)

Living in a tropical country, I always find myself combing for pieces in my closet that I can easily move in. I look for the loose tops, breezy Sunday dresses and anything that is sleeveless. Unfortunately, not everything goes as planned. Even on the hottest days, I sometimes get dyahe to wear sleeveless. I also feel like I sweat more than other people so I get super conscious when I’m about to do an extraneous task or whole day errands.
