I have never been much of a “kikay” person. Most of this “kikay-ness” went to my little sister, the Manila Shopaholic girl. I’m more of the active, sporty, always-busy-no-time-for-vanity chick. But between the two of us, I am the one with this dream, which clearly involves one to put more attention to looks. If you read my earlier post, I dream of becoming a side kick of the star in a movie. That’s right. I don’t want to be the star, but just the supporting actress.
Apart from being comfortable in front of a camera, I should be comfortable with my own skin. Yes, I am fair. I know that I don’t have to be exceptionally pretty (since I’m not striving to be the star of the show). But I know that even the supporting actress has to have smooth and glowing skin.
I envy those actresses who have radiant skin. It actually doesn’t matter if they’re of the “morena” (dark, olive skin) or the “mestiza” (fair and pinkish) kind, but what intrigues me is that all of them have this glowing skin, and I always wondered how that is achieved.
My sister said that the secret is to have even skin tone and smooth skin, so that the light bounces of your skin evenly. OMG! Is that type of skin even possible?
I just came from a Pond’s sponsored event (which you will get to read about in ManilaShopaholic.com in the coming days), and I was inspired to pay more attention to my skin. I talked to the Senior Brand Manager of Pond’s and she mentioned an interesting fact that I never knew. She said that ageing starts at the age of 25 and it starts in the skin near the eyes.
I always thought that anti-ageing creams were used when one reaches 40+, but I’m 30 and I need it already. With my dream (that I really wish to achieve), I cannot be passive. I rushed to a store in Power Plant and bought these two bottles of cream from Pond’s Age Miracle.
The Pond’s Age Miracle line contains Advanced CLA Complex. This is a combination of anti-ageing ingredients: CLA, AHA, Retinol and Retinol boosters. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots in 7 days. They say that age spots can actually be seen under your skin, and we won’t know it’s there, since it comes out late in life. We can avoid it from appearing though, through anti-ageing products.
I normally wash my face with soap. I’m not a fan of any brand, so I use any brand’s basic facial wash (I think I have to stick to one soon!). After that, I sleep. Sometimes, to tell you honestly, when I’m really tired, I just go directly to bed. I’m not a fan of make-up, so it’s “what you see is what you get” when it comes to my face.
This time, I hope with these two products that I bought (plus one little container of Pond’s Flawless White Visible Lightening Day Cream, which was given by Pond’s), I get to have flawless white skin.
Day 1 for me! (March 6, 2011)
Product 1: Dual Eye-Therapy UV
This cream is composed of pink cream for the upper eye and white cream for the lower eye. The upper eye collagen reduces the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes. The under eye brightening cream helps reduce the dark circles around the eyes and the puffiness.
Product 2: Overnight Repair Cream
Just spread this product upward from the chin to the cheeks every evening and get to see its benefits. It works while you sleep, minimizing fine lines, and wrinkles. It brightens the skin and maintains the texture, tone and elasticity of your skin.
I’m actually eager to see the results. Follow me as I give you updates on my journey to flawless skin with Pond’s Age Miracle!
