The Girlies’ Glow-up Guide: Ultimate Skincare Tips for On-the-go Ladies


Does having clear, healthy, and radiant skin make you feel more comfortable and beautiful even without makeup? 

Skincare is one of the best forms of self-care, and it’s also a great source of empowerment as an ultimate confidence booster. However, skincare routines are not a one-size-fits-all matter—especially since different skin types and woes require different care or solutions. The time and effort you can dedicate to skincare also play a crucial role, because consistency is always the key in skincare. 

This Women’s Month, let us help you feel empowered and confident with the power of skincare by guiding you into its intricacies—like knowing which products work best for your skin type and which treatments can help banish your skin problems even during your busiest days. Check this list below!

An oily and acne-prone skin fix

Don’t let breakouts bring you down with this perfect find for oily and acne-prone skin: the QUICKFX Pimple Eraser Soothing Gel, which is formulated with aloe vera, niacinamide, and bamboo and avocado extracts. Through this powerful combination, this soothing gel effectively moisturizes and provides a calming effect for redness and inflammation caused by breakouts and skin irritation. It also helps prevent pimples and lightens dark acne marks, letting you enjoy blemish-free skin and a healthy glow.

Get the QUICKFX Pimple Eraser Soothing Gel 300ML at a discounted price of P259.35 (originally P399) at Watsons via the SM Malls Online app from March 1 to 31.

Solution for dull and lifeless skin

Stress, tiredness, lack of sleep, dehydration, and several environmental factors can make your skin appear dull and lifeless—but don’t worry because you can bring back its radiance with the right skincare products like the GARNIER Bright Complete Brightening Foam. 

This cleansing foam with a gentle formula features pure lemon extract to brighten your skin while reducing dullness and dark spots. It is also built for deep and intensive cleansing, so you can easily wash off the dirt and impurities that take away your skin’s natural glow.

A combination skin must-have

If some areas of your skin feel oily (especially your T-zone—which comprises the nose, forehead, and chin) while others appear dry, your skin type falls under combination skin. Although the difference in texture may sound tricky for deciding on a skincare routine, Innisfree’s Trouble Care for Clear Skin Set offers an all-in-one solution that makes the job easier.

This K-beauty set brings you three nourishing products that cover the needs of both oily and dry skin: the Bija Trouble Cleansing Foam, Retinol Cica Repair Ampoule, and Bija Cica Balm EX. Perfect for oily skin, Bija seed oil is a famous ingredient for strengthening the skin barrier and soothing acne breakouts. On the other hand, retinol is often used for hydrating dry skin and keeping it clear, calm, and smooth for a healthy and lively glow.

Ultimate essential for all skin types

Despite their different needs, there’s one thing that all skin types can agree on: a nourishing and moisturizing skincare product is a must-have for a gorgeous glow. With The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-oil, your skin can enjoy the ultimate hydration it needs—even while you sleep. 

By combining the potency of serum and the moisturizing effect of face oils in just one product, this beauty booster allows for easier and faster skin absorption of the various natural-origin oils from its formula—including raspberry seed oil, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, almond oil, and sesame seed oil.

No more worries with wart-free skin

PSA: Warts aren’t *just* rough bumps or blemishes on your face; they are actually skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus. Although they are generally harmless, their appearance can be bothersome or cause pain to some. Fortunately, they are removable through quick, safe, and painless treatments like Bioessence’s Warts Removal Service. Using an electrocautery machine, this treatment effectively removes annoying warts and lets you enjoy an instantly smoother and lighter skin. 

Enjoy a Warts Removal Service at 50% off for only P1,250 (instead of P2,500) at Bioessence in SM City Fairview, SM Megamall, SM Southmall, and SM City Bacoor via the SM Malls Online app from March 1 to 31.
