It’s Christmas time again, and we’re all rushing to prepare for family reunions, company parties, coffee dates with friends, and even weddings! In other wordcs, it’s time not to be greeted with, “uyyyyyy, tumanda ka!”.

In November, we created our calendar to identify who among us is attending the parties of the dozen accredited brokers. My mother also confirmed that my brother is tying the knot on Christmas Day in Sagada. Thus I had to check my closet if I was ready or not.

It's also high time to check the beauty regimen. Beauty regimen is sometimes complicated as we are impatient- we only want the best results. 



Here’s the checklist to guide us in completing our beauty regimen:

1. Make sure you have clean hands before you touching your skin.  Hygiene is basics.

2. Before applying anything on the face, remove any trace of make up.

3. Dampen skin with lukewarm. Why use lukewarm? Hot water won’t kill acne bacteria and won’t open or close the pores.

4. Keep exfoliating. Exfoliation helps in removing dead skin cells. Beads may help in this process. By the way, exfoliating is different from scrubbing. Scrubbing acne may only create skin tears and this will result to further damage to the skin.

5. Never ever use cleansers with strong alcohol content.  This will remove the skin’s natural moist and content. Ask your doctor, not your sari-sari store vendor, about this.

6. Avoid picking or squeezing the pimple. It won’t do anything good.

7. Apply Proactiv Solution on the whole face, not only on the pimple spot. 

ULTIMATE TIP: Do all the tips EVERY DAY, PATIENTLY. There is no short cut!
