IMG_9615We were at Animal Island, Island Cove yesterday.  The sun’s rays and the drying breeze from Manila Bay almost threatened my skin of getting sun spots and other damaging UV effects.  Thank God I was able to attend the launch of Neutrogena’s new campaign which advocates healthy beauty for Filipino women, a couple of weeks ago at Marriott Manila Hotel.

Neautrogena’s approach to beauty in  healthier way is what all women and men alike would appreciate.  The alarming cases of skin cancer, skin aging and degradation always keep us looking  for skin care systems that would give utmost protection to every weather’s effects on skin.

Now, that we can really feel the heat of summer, Neutrogena had given helpful tips in keeping our skin, not only clean, moisturized and protected for that youthful glow, with a skin care range that will give us the philosophy  behind why we  need to have a healthy  habit.

Let me share you what has become a habit since I tried  the new skin care range that Neutrogena had introduced, when comes to committing thy self under that philosophy which we all ought to have.

1. Skin-friendly Cleansing


Busting the myth of  “tiis-ganda” with easy-peasy cleansing regimen, Ella Reyes-David, Neutrogena’s senior brand manager explained that most of the skin cleansing liquid that we buy strips of skin moisture , leaving our skin dry and squeaky.   But unlike Neutrogena  Deep Clean cleanser, it cleans deep down into pores to dissolve the dirt, oil and make-up residue, effectively removing up to 99 percent of impurities, without the after-wash dryness.

2. Moisturize


I love and swear by this product.

Just last December, I had this skin issue that really had me worried, fearing going to facial centers would make it worse and fearing my money would just go to waste with products I would be pushed to use.

I’m already 38 and the toll of being out the humid and drying Manila weather shows up, such as drying, sometimes itchy sensation, acne and wrinkles.  I was told that moisturizing is still the best way to combat those signs of skin damages.

When I  used the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, it had instantly hydrated my facial skin.  It has even helped soothe my skin and leaves it soft, supple without being oily.

I love how light it feels when applied, since it is gel-based, you won’t feel any oil and glossy texture.  It is made with a combination of Olive Extract and Hyaluronic acid which gives up to 200 percent of hydration.  It also has that Progressive Release  System  feature that keeps hydrating the skin all through-out the day of up to 12 hours.

3. Ultra Protection for Facial Skin


Do you know that there are two kinds of sun rays that could damage our skin when exposed?  With that I guess we need double protection, yeah?  Both Both UVA and UVB penetrate the atmosphere and play an important role in conditions such as premature skin aging, eye damage (including cataracts), and skin cancers. They also suppress the immune system, reducing your ability to fight off these and other maladies.

If you can see on the above photo, my skin isn’t damaged (yet) at all, even though I have been exposed to the sun since 10 am in the morning till 4 pm, going around the 12 hectare-hotel resort with the sun intense beams with no umbrella.  That is because I used Neurogena’s Ultra Sheer.  It’s a powerful solution for sun protection, which has the Dry Touch technology – in laymans’ terms it provides the excellant texture on the skin.  It does not leave that sticky white film or residue upon application which people have come to associate with sun screen.

Since it’s water and sweat-proof, you don’t need to apply often.  It’s non-greasy feel makes it the best before-make up regimen.  Ultra Sheer has SPF 50 with the technology to match other sun screens, The breakthrough technology, Helioplex was engineered to deliver very high, very broad  and photostable UV protection which means it does not lose its effectiveness even with continued exposure to sunlight, thanks to the sun screen present on it, Avobenzone and Oxybensone.

4. Full Body Sun Protection


I’ve actually been using Neutrogena products since I was in college, now that I am a mom, to teens and kids, the sun screen lotion is always a must-have at home.  Whether the family would go on a quickie dip to the pool, or play and run around the park,  I am always ready for that having one in the car, another in my bag and one at home.

And this Ultra Sheer Sun block lotion is my best friend.  It provides the same amount of protection Ultra Sheer Water light lotion for the face.

With that we can just say that we are ready to face summer!
