When it comes to our daily skin care routine, how many steps should it be? There, four, five or more? Admittedly, I had more than four steps. Since the Cetaphil Experience 2016 workshops, I have learned to change and simplify my skin regime. Today, I am going to share with you my Top 3 Skin Care Tips & Steps to Skin Confidence and also the Top 3 Skin Care Myths that I have learned from the skin care workshops.

Top 3 Skin Care Tips & Top 3 Skin Care Myths, Busted! 

If you only can choose 3 steps of your daily skin care routine, what will it be? For those who did the 4, 5, 6, 7 or more I am sure you will have a hard time to decide. Imagine how many hours you can save if you only have 3 steps.

Top 3 Skin Care Tips and Steps to Skin Confidence
Actually 3 steps skin care routine is sufficient such as cleanse, moisturize and protect. These 3 steps are the main of our skin care routine to healthy and beautiful skin. Bingo! If we are consistent and diligent with our daily skin care routine plus using the right skin care products that work for our skin.

1. Cleansing is the first step and the most important, it helps to remove all the residues, built ups and also the dead skin cells on the skin surface. When skin is cleanse, it is now ready to absorb the nutrients from the next skin care.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser 

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is one of the most gentle skin cleansers that I ever tried. The soap free formulation that works so gently on my skin at the same time removes all the impurities. It doesn’t give any skin tightening feeling or irritation after using it. It’s fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and even mild enough to cleanse baby’s delicate skin.

I love the soft and smooth skin after cleansing without stripping off my natural skin moisture. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is also Cetaphil’s signature and award-winning product. It is suitable for all skin types, especially for sensitive skin users.

2. Moisturize to keep our skin hydrated.

3. Protection is vital. We have to protect our skin from UVA and UVB with sufficient sun protection even though we stay indoor to prevent pre-mature skin aging.

Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF50+

This tube of Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF50+ is sufficient for my daily skin protection. It is so convenient that I can apply on my face and body, best for travelling. I like it because the texture is non-sticky and non-oily plus it doesn’t leave any whitish thingy after application. This sun protection provides an optimum sun protection against UV rays with its patented Mexoryl formula while soothing and moisturizing the skin. It is ideal for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Top 3 Skin Care Myths, Busted!
When it comes to skin care, we have our own believe, tips and tricks too. But sometimes what we have been practicing all these while might not be true or it could be bad for our skin. Now we want to set the score straight and practice what is good for our skin according to skin expert.


The Top 3 Skin Care Myths

Myth 1: The higher the SPF, the better protection
Majority of us think that the higher the SPF, the better the sun protection. This is False, according to dermatologist the efficacy of sun protection does not go up anymore above SPF50. So when we choose sun protection SPF50 is sufficient. The best is to reapply our sun protection every 2 to 4 hours for maximum effectiveness and protection. Choose the SPF that has UVA and UVB protections. 

Check out what the skin expert has to say about sun protection in the video below:



Myth 2: Does my cleanser need to foam to be effective?
False! Some of you may love to use the foam cleanser that can give the squeaky clean feeling after washing your face. You might think it is cleaner but the fact that it actually drying your skin. Therefore, we should choose the cleaner that works and gentle on our skin according to the ingredients.

Watch this video to find out the skin expert has to say about cleansing 




Myth 3: After using the same skin care for a while, our skin will adapt to them and stop working.
There are some friends that told me they has to change skin care every year or two years once. This is not true, when you find a skin care that suitable for your skin type and it works please do not change it. It show that your skin has already adapt to the skin care and continue to use it.
