How to get pageant perfect skin
MANILA, Philippines – People today shop for the most effective facial or pampering treatments like they are buying shoes and bags. In constant pursuit of beauty, many people go through great lengths to find out or try the latest procedures that promise skin lifting, body toning, or pretty much anything that can make you feel and look young. Whatever your skin concern is, apparently almost all can be addressed with the number of treatments to choose from.
Dr. Cecilia Bernad, founder and head doctor of the Dr. CRB Aesthetic & Laser Clinic, has been the go-to derma of Filipinas from Cebu to Manila, including celebrated beauty queens Pia Wurtzbach and Shamcey Supsup. From the fad of non-invasive treatments, to the once feared invasive treatments, she has offered, performed, and updated her skills and treatments to constantly keep with the wants and needs of clients.
Sharing her beauty advice for those who want that pageant perfect glow, she talks about what will be the latest in beauty as well as some tried and tested favorites.
Get regular facials for pore-perfect maintenance. At Dr. CRB, they customize their facials to the client. Ranging from their signature Iontophoresis for minimizing pores, Hollywood Lift for a non-invasive face lift, to reshape skin tightening for the face and body.
For some extra pampering, some clients opt for relaxing scrubs, while others do lasers and drytox. For anti-aging treatments, there is Thermage or Ulthera. The body conscious ones do Liposonix for non-invasive fat reduction.
Good skin is always the first thing people notice. We all know the ideal beauty regimen is to sleep 7-8 hours a day. Everyone should also eat well, hydrate properly, and exercise regularly. One thing I can’t stress enough is the need for sunscreen; it protects your skin daily and it keeps the skin from aging fast. Give your skin a break too, whether it be from makeup, tanning, or any harsh regimen.
An anti-aging regimen is crucial to maintain all-over healthy, glowing skin. Anti-aging in the beauty industry continues to grow every year. We do get a lot of patients who inquire about anti-aging treatments. More than undergoing treatments, it’s always good to moisturize the body, and not just the face. There are a variety of lasers and rejuvenating facials that you can do every couple of month as maintenance, or when your skin goes through some severe conditions like being under the sun for a long time or going through a stressful a week. These are accessible, effective, and beneficial in the long run.
Whitening is still popular. "I think whitening will always stay, but it’s quite refreshing to see Filipinos embracing their natural skin color – we tan nicely too!" says Dra. CRB. If you look at our local celebrities, most of them are still pretty light skinned. The popularity of KPop and Korean shows in our country also continues to promote this trend. Incorporating whitening into your daily routine – from soaps to scrubs – are effective but these products take time and may not necessarily work 100 percent on patients. More aggressive treatments like bleaching and peels are very effective but have contraindications like sun exposure.
Nothing is more effective than proper diet and exercise, save for liposuction. There are several machines available. Liposonix, for one, is one of the most effective ways to remove an inch of fat in a session. Another trend is the release of new injectables like deoxycholic acid used to melt the double chin. Then again, a month of proper diet and exercise can do more than that. Most procedures help tone and tighten both skin and muscle and they are very effective when done in conjunction with natural weight loss. – Rappler.com
