Oh my goodness, where do I begin? I surely had the time of my life in Bali during The Cetaphil Experience 2016. Not only did I get to meet new friends and fellow beauty bloggers from all over Southeast Asia but I also got to take home with me a renewed sense of self.
Even before I got selected to be one of the participants in the Cetaphil Experience 2016, I knew this opportunity is a huge deal and will make me, as a beauty blogger myself, more wiser in choosing skin care products and I was not disappointed. I have learned a lot throughout the experience with all the skin workshops and activities they had in store for us.
I always thought that in choosing a facial wash, the foamier it is the better it cleanses the skin. Well, now I know it is not the case. Foaming facial wash can actually contribute to premature aging of the skin, so the less bubbles, the better.
This is just one of the many highlights of the skin care tips and myths shared by Ms. Martina Fink, a beauty and life coach from Zurich, Switzerland, the host of the Cetaphil Experience 2016.
I also would like to thank the local workshop we had, headed by Ms Cassie and Cheska, because if it weren’t for it, I wouldn’t be able to know the exact condition of my skin using the Skin Analyzer. I realized that I have been so obsessed with whitening the skin that I overlooked how much damage it can also bring hence, the redness on most parts of my face.
Did you know that there is a 3 minute window in applying lotions or creams immediately after taking a bath? I did not! I learned that during this time frame, lotions, creams and moisturizers should be applied to ensure that the water is locked inside our skin. This is the main purpose of these products and little did I know that reapplying lotion without having to take a shower or at least dampening the skin with water is pointless, just a waste of product and money!
All these years I thought I knew my skin already but there is more to what the eyes can see! I have learned how to choose the right products for my skin type. Plus there’s a bonus skin care hack I’ve learned that can instantly make the skin firmer without having to go under the knife.
This oats, brown sugar and Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser concoction is a MUST TRY if you want to achieve a firmer and younger looking skin in an instant!
Overall, it was a time well spent away from the family because I got to learn all of these and more! I was able to enjoy the serene surroundings of Karma Kandara, mingled with fellow beauty bloggers from Southeast Asia and renewed my skin confidence so I can come home a better person inside out!
Thank you so much for your time and be sure to follow me for more updates about my Cetaphil Experience!
