Céleteque DermoScience has been part of my skin care regimen but I’ve only known recently that this effective line of product is locally made under Unilab, amazing! So when I got invited to Celeteque DermoScience as they partner with a world renowned dermatologist, I didn’t think twice and immediately said yes.
I together with a few bloggers witnessed the introduction of Celeteque’s Dermo skin care ambassador, Dr. Eric Schweiger, a top New York-based dermatologist. A brief explanation: Dermo-Cosmetics started as a specialized skin care category in Europe w/ products that combine the efficiency of derma-grade ingredients and the expertise of dermatologists into cosmetic skin care products.

We were able to measure our skin’s moisture level with the help of Irish, the Skin Care Specialist.
Earth of Earthlingorgeous.com is the first to try.
Jehan of Dailyfashionistamanila.com gets her moisture level checked. Her moisture level was at 12.6 then she applied Celeteque Moisturizing Mist.
After a spritz and her moisture level surged up to 65!
How amazing is that?!
Jehan gets interviewed by Angel on what she thinks about Celeteque’s moisturizing factors.
Now it’s my turn! My moisture level was quite normal at 30, I did slather on some moisturizer so I guess that made my dry skin a wee bit moisturized. Photo c/o of Jehan.
After applying Celeteque moisturizer, my moisture level went up at 47.8. I guess everyone who had their moisturizing level tested were quite amazed on how effective Celeteque is.
We were able to ask a few questions to Dr. Eric Schweiger and Tina Sarmiento basically about skin care of course.

Earth‘s turn for Q&A.
I was able to jot down some of the key points discussed that day.
What is Celeteque DermoScience? How does it differ with other beauty products?
– Celeteque DermoScience is a combination= medically effective and cosmetically elegant.
The three way product derma test:
1. Make sure a product is dermatologist tested.
2. Make sure a product has derma grade ingredients
3. Make sure it was tested in a clinical study.
Is there a product that can make pimples heal faster?
– First of prevention is the key, not only when you have pimples should you follow a beauty routine. It is best to cleanse, tone and moisturize always to prevent pimples. Make sure that you use non-comodogenic anti-acne products.
At what age should one start using an anti-aging product?
-There is no specific age, not when you’re in your 30s or 40s but as soon s you see signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots and uneven skin tone. You can start using anti-aging products in your 20s, the earlier you start the better.
Will whitening products work with freckles and pigmentation?
-Yes, but in order to prevent skin pigmentation one must use products with sun screen protection to prevent future damage.
Does drinking water help moisturize skin?
-Not really. Although water intake helps you keep hydrated, still it is best to use moisturizing products to aid in having a healthy moisturized skin.
Is there any other way to prevent or remove wrinkles & other signs of aging without using anti-aging skin care products?
-Yes, you can opt to have botox treatments or laser procedures.
Can one skip sun care products when it’s gloomy or when its cloudy?
-No. UVA and UVB rays are present even on a cloudy day. UVA ray (long wave) which causes aging and UVB ray (short wave) which can cause skin cancer are both harmful to our skin. So it is advisable to use a product with at least an SPF 15 even when it’s gloomy or staying indoor.
Sunblock alone is not a moisturizer unless it states otherwise. Sunblock with SPF 15 is efficient enough to use in tropical countries such as the Philippines.
SPF is computed= SPF 15 is considered 5 x 15 minutes.
Exfoliate at least 1-2x a week, 3x a week if you are prone to blackheads & whiteheads (coincidentally, I exfoliate 3x a week every Monday, Wednesday and Friday-MWF)
How long should one test a product to see its effectivity?
– It’s best to test a product for a period of 1 week to 1 month, safest would be 2 months.
What’s the interval of applying products? How long should one apply another product?-Wait until the previous product gets absorb by your skin before applying another product.
One can use brightening products at least once a day and one must really make time for a skin care routine.
One can start using skin care products at an early age, usually when puberty comes. Teenagers are advised to have a simple skin care regimen to prevent pimples and other skin problems.
No truth about eating oily foods & chocolates as huge factors of acne.
Peeling is a sign that a product is working but just to be sure, ask your dermatologist for a product’s side effect.
Don’t forget to applying skin care products on your neck as well as your hands because these areas are more prone to show signs of aging.
Don’t forget to keep it simple with skin care products: cleaser, toner and moisturizer + treatment products if needed.
Celeteque is safe to try even without seeing a dermatologist and there’s no peeling effect for any of their products.
The other bloggers were able to have their skin analyze with this futuristic-looking skin analyzer that takes a photo of your face. Earth had her skin analyzed, sadly I really wanted to have mine so I have an idea of how I can manage my skin but since I’m pregnant I had to pass. Photo c/o Earth.
As what Dr. Eric Schweiger said if you’re unsure of your skin type and how to treat it properly, better consult a dermatologist first before trying on products just to be on the safe side.
I really did learn a lot from the event as I admit that I am not a beauty fanatic kind of girl but then I realize I’m not getting any younger, it sure is time to step up, take good care of myself and start a beauty regimen. I religiously should follow my cleanse+tone+moisturize routine.

Thank you Unilab & Céleteque for my loot! So far, I’m already using the hydration line (the all blue one, far left of the photo) I’m also excited to try the anti-aging line especially the eye treatment as I have big, dark puffy eye bags! Can’t wait to let you know the effect on me.
Happy rainy hump day!
