Having supple,soft, and youthful skin is a sign that you are on top of your skincare game. Whether it be skin on the face or the body, I have personal favorite products that I would like to share with you guys today!

Let's start off with the body...

I've been using the Cetaphil Daily Advance Lotion--this is clinically proven to hydrate and protect dry skin for 24 hours! It is also non-greasy, fragrance free and non-comedogenic.
I've been using this lotion for quite a while now, and it still remains to be one of my top favorites [lotion for the body] I've already featured this in a couple of my other blog posts along with a skin care video:

**P.S. I also use this on my legs down to my feet! It totally helps with dry feet! 

Next we have moisturizers for the face...
If you are a  regular watcher of my vlogs, you would totally be familiar with these products. I am such a fan of face masks. The particular brand I use is LEADERS. You can find these at Lucky Chinatown Mall. Not only are these LEADERS FACE MASKS EXCELLENT for moisturizing your skin, they also bring about a LOT of skin benefits like brightening, anti-aging, anti-acne, whitening, anti-dryness, sebum control...and many many more! Choose among endless selections of face masks and MAKE IT A DAILY HABIT! I use face maks EVERY SINGLE DAY, and this prevents my skin from getting irritations! 

Another favorite of mine is the Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel. I use this before I put on makeup. This is PERFECT for people with oily/combo skin as it has a water-light texture, and is easily absorbed by the skin. I've been introduced to this products YEARS BACK, still using it to this day, and I am 100% sure you will love it too! See my old post about this here - DEC 2012 (4 years back!)

Hydration for the eyes? YES PLEASE! Also one of my favorites from LEADERS, is the HYDROGEL EYE THERAPY PATCH. Admit it, we all sleep late sometimes. I edit videos every single night and there are times when my eyes get so stressed that it shows on my undereye area. No bueno, especially if you have early appointments the next day! These eye patches are my heroes. They give high elasticity improvement, moisture and nutrition to the eyes, and they have a cooling and soothing effect! It also dramatically reduces wrinkles with continued use! I *love* how my eyes look so de-puffed and brightened after using this! (I use it at night)

So those are my recommendations, guys! I hope you enjoyed, and till the next post! Love love!

My Top 5 Skin Essentials

I can't stress how important it is to attend to your skin care. Being a vlogger, I'm 'on cam' almost everyday--filming vlogs, makeup tutorials, and so much more. I appear with and without makeup, too! It is really important to have a skin care regimen to keep skin problems at bay. Today I am sharing with you my TOP 5 Skin Essentials.

#1 Makeup  Remover
It is imperative that you use makeup remover to thoroughly remove every single bit of makeup off your face. I know other people who only use water or goes straight to their face cleanser--and I firmly believe that this is not the way to go. I love oil based makeup removers especially for removing waterproof makeup.

#2 Gentle Skin Cleanser (i.e. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser)

Cleansing your skin is a MUST. This process helps remove oil and dirt build-up throughout the day. There are thousands of cleansers out in the market, but the gentlest one I've tried is the one from Cetaphil. I love how it thoroughly cleanses my skin without being too drying. I've been using this since time immemorial and it still remains to be one of my favorite cleansers ever! 

#3 Moisturize (i.e. Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion)
Bring back moisture on your skin! Not only does moisturizers prevent premature aging, it also makes your skin plump! Moisturizing, even if you have oily skin type, is a must! I have combination skin, and I love using the Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion on my face and my body! I just use a pea-size amount on my face as a little goes a long way! 

#4 Eye Cream

When you hit 20 y/o, you gotta start investing on eye cream. You will thank yourself in 50 years!!! Eye cream is my MUST-NOT-SKIP skin care favorite. Dab this baby underneath your eyes and even on the lids every single night without fail and you won't be saying hello to premature wrinkles any time soon.

#5 Protect (i.e. DayLong Gel with SPF50+)
One of the most important steps--sun protection. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can and will damage your skin without the proper armor. The sun AGES and BURNS the skin. I see to it that I use sunscreen on my face and my body before I go out on a hot sunny day (and even on fair days!) The Daylong Gel with SPF50+ is perfect to use before makeup because it is not too heavy on the skin. The skin is able to drink it up right away, and you'll be left with nothing but protected skin! 

That's it for my post for today, loves. Let me know in the comments if you do all this skin care steps! Thanks so much for dropping by!

Do you wonder what ingredient is best for lightening the skin? It is important to look for products that are made from NATURAL sources.

Kojie San products contain Kojic Acid--a chemical compound made from organic materials that form complexes with substrates and metal ions. Kojic Acid can also be extracted as a by-product of fermentation when making Japanese rice wine and sake. How natural is that?

Kojiesan has been consistently producing their Kojic Acid soap blending high-grade Kojic Acid & virgin coconut oil with effective lightening ingredients that keeps dark pigmentation from forming and inhibits the activity of tyrosinase, the enzyme that produces melanin. Melanin is the pigment responsible for the skin’s darker color.

With regular use, Kojiesan can slow down melanin production and prevent darkening of the skin. It is best for treatment to even out skin tone, erase dark spots and other forms of skin pigmentations. It also corrects skin discoloration and of course lightens skin. Kojiesan products do not contain any hydroquinone, mercury or steroid that may cause further skin irritation like blisters, swelling and severe allergy.

Rejuvenate with Kojiesan Cleanser + Toner, equipped with Ginseng Extract and Rosehip Oil to revive tired skin, ridding the skin of excessive oils while repairing skin damage; brighten with Kojiesan Face Lightening Cream, a combination of natural extracts and high-grade Kojic Acid to lighten as it nourishes, restoring skin suppleness for a healthy, rosy look; and lighten with Kojiesan Body Lightening Lotion with advanced formula of Kojic Acid and Rosehip Oil - to whiten skin as it heals - and Collagen + Vitamin E to increase youthfulness and improve skin health.

Available at: All leading supermarkets, drug stores, and sari-sari stores nationwide

Choose Simple Skin Commitments! #CetaphilWorks

How much do you care for your skin? Tons of skincare products are out there in the market--do you know what suits your skin type the best? I've been using different brands for over 6 years now, and I made a video for you guys sharing my top recommendations for SIMPLE SKIN COMMITMENTS.

Caring for my skin is my top priority because I know beauty is SKIN DEEP. It is imperative for me to thoroughly CLEANSE my skin, free it from makeup, dirt, and bacteria after a long day! This comes after using makeup remover, of course! I love using the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser--it's the GENTLEST skin cleanser in my opinion! It remains to be one of my favorite cleansers throughout the years.

Always remember to MOISTURIZE after cleansing your skin. I use the Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion. After a recent beach trip, my skin started peeling and feeling dry all over. This lotion was my go-to. It definitely relieved me of itchy skin caused by the peeling; and made my skin feel soft, plump, and smothe all over.

It only takes approximately 3 minutes before water evaporates from one's skin after bath? 

Moisturizing has anti-aging benefits. It revitalizes your skin and slows down its aging process. No one wants premature wrinkles!

The most important is PROTECTING. Yup, this means sun block you guys. I know it can feel so nakakatamad at times. But sun block MUST be used on the face and the body before sun exposure. The sun rays can burn and age your skin! I've been loving the DayLong Gel with SPF50+, I actually brought it to Boracay and my sister and I loveddd its lightweight texture. Perfect to use on the face even before makeup application! It is non-sticky and non-greasy, too!

There you go guys, SIMPLE SKIN COMMITMENTS!!! Your skin will thank you in the future :)
