Remember the #FreeInMySkin 14-Day Challenge I wrote about a few weeks back? To continue, allow me to share my progress and result of the challenge. I know most women suffer from dry skin now that summer’s officially here.
I’m not one who is wary whenever summer comes, in fact I love summer! But now more than ever have I come to accept the fact that summer may not be as friendly to my dry skin as I thought. Change of weather is one factor that causes anyone to have skin sensitivity– whether you have dry or oily skin, you can be affected.
Over time my dry skin has become combination skin where my T-zone is oily and the rest of my face dry.
While I’ve been maintaining my very simple, no-fuss three step –cleanse, tone, moisturise–skincare routine on most days, for some reason I still end up having really bad, sensitive skin. It wasn’t ’til the launch of Physiogel Calming Face Range in Bangkok did it finally sink in that external and internal factors–some are harmless, really– causes stress to our body & mind which in turn can really affect our skin. And unfortunately some of these factors, I induce to myself without knowing it can greatly cause skin sensitivity.
With just 30% moisture and 20% oil, my skin really needs all the moisture and protection it can get. I never really thought about how important the overall state of my skin is until I learned that caring for it should really start from within– to start, one must replenish lipids missing from dry skin and Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream has got this covered.
Eating spicy food, having lack of sleep, exposing your skin to different products, and even the use of hot & hard water on your skin can cause sensitivity. Eeeeeep, I am guilty as charged! All the while I blame my being a late bloomer when it comes to skin care and my being born with dry skin as the only two factors that greatly cause my skin sensitivity. Now that I know better, I’ve been more conscious to help my skin be better, to help myself be #freeinmyskin. Thus, I stick to what has been working for me in the past weeks – Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream.
Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream helps reduce facial redness and restores comfort for more soothed, even toned skin. It visibly reduces dry skin and redness with it fast absorbing formation which provides immediate and long-lasting relief from dryness. It’s clinically proven to restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Two weeks doing the Free In My Skin 14-Day Challenge & I do feel the difference. My face feels more moisturised especially in the morning when Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream has been fully absorbed by my skin. It leaves my face plump and dewy. Redness has far lessened and tightness was barely felt, skin sensitivity has become a thing of the past for me.
One full pump of Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream is enough to cover my entire face. I spread it on four points of my face–forehead, both cheeks, chin– and massage it gently in a circular motion. If there’s one thing I learned from the Physiogel Inner Circle launch in Bangkok, it’s that application of any product, particularly face creams should be done gently and properly.
I love using Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream so much that I’ve been using it as my makeup base. The velvety smooth cream gives me that dewy look.
Got these sample-size set during the launch in Bangkok and I brought them with me during our vacation. I wish these are readily available so I can lug it around with me wherever, whenever!
It’s official, I cannot live without Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream. It has greatly improved not only the way my skin looks but also the way my skin feels. I’m pretty sure if I continue lathering this on my face in the next decade or so, I wouldn’t worry about having sensitive skin when I’m older. Safe to say, I’m finally I’m free in my skin.
