Celebrating White Weeksary with Silka Green Papaya Soap

Angelica Panganiban for Silka Green Papaya Soap

While I really have no plans to have a fairer skin, I will be the first to confess that I can sure make use of a more even skin tone. I recently just heard about how much more effective green papaya soap is more than its usual orange counterpart – specifically, Silka Green Papaya Soap.

For a whole lot of women, achieving healthier and fairer skin comes with its cost: expensive, skin dryness, harsh chemicals. Silka, the brand at the forefront of producing affordable and effective beauty products, believes that this should not be the case. I have always been a supporter of things all natural. And Silka being an herbal soap, I am totally giving this product a chance. I might just achieve the even skin tone I have been hoping to have for the longest time.

The new and improved Silka Green Papaya with VitaRich Actives have been further enhanced with green papaya enzymes that treat dead skin cells; and vitamin E with antioxidant properties that help condition the skin. These formulation changes help Filipinas experience puting walang hapdi, in as early as just 7 days — proving that accomplishing fair skin can be fast and convenient without the dryness and stinging associated with other whitening product brands.

During the program, it was revealed that Angelica is a firm believer of Silka’s mission to help women achieve their skin goals and recognizes that Silka is a trusted brand because of their quality products that help women feel and be their best.

Angelica Panganiban has gone through a lot of ups and downs throughout her life and career. Because of her experiences, she knows when to take time for herself and avoid issues that can affect her” said Jane Co, Silka’s Marketing Head. “As a Silka lady, Angelica embodies tunay na alaga, and chooses those that will not hurt her. Beautiful and smart, she is an inspiring example for Filipinas” Co added.

Latest Beauty Find: Asian Aesthetics Center (AAC) Essentials Line for that Dewey, Korean Glass-Skin

asian aesthetic center

Manila has totally gone Korean – from the popular K Dramas, K Pop Culture, and even in the skin care department. The K wave lingers and seems to stay for a great while. And when we talk about Korean skin care, it is for the most part focused on achieving that dewey, glass-skin, glowing complexion.

The skin care industry is riding the waves too. But the question is which ones work? Which are the ones that will actually help achieve that translucent, dewey, luminous face, that seems to radiate from within?

The Asian Aesthetic Center offers the latest in beauty treatments and procedures

We were recently at the Asian Aesthetic Center and we were introduced to the AAC Essentials which is composed of:

  • Dermatone –  helps brighten skin for a glowy glass-like complexion.
  • Clarifying Serum – increases cellular turnover which makes the skin youthful-looking
  • Whitening Serum – lightens and minimize pores which improves the appearance of skin.

There are so many products to choose from, but you need informed choices to separate the hype for certain products and ingredients to the ones that actually work.

When we’re younger, the skin changes every 28 days. But as we age, the sloughing off of dead cells becomes sluggish and the skin becomes dull. Because it layers on the old skin and you have to help your skin exfoliate. This is why when we get older, we tend to have wrinkles and pigmentation. The AAC Essentials line is designed for a nighttime routine with visible results in just two weeks. Consistency is key. The more assiduous you are in following a skincare routine, the better your results.

Achieve glass skin through AAC Essentials Skin Care line

The AAC Essentials Formulation:

While the formulation of the ACC Essentials is a trade secret, some of the active ingredients include Retinols, Arbutin, and a combination of the fruit acids. These are ingredients with a proven track record in both safety and effectivity. AAC Essentials is a skincare line that has been around for 10 years and longtime users, some from as far as Japan, have been clamoring for it.

Apart from the healthy glow, with AAC Essentials the overall condition of your complexion improves that even if you get acne, whiteheads, and blackheads, it is easier to treat them. The relaunch of AAC Essentials has the added advantage of a more improved formula using the
latest research-backed ingredients. The road glassy, sparkly complexion is achievable with AAC Essentials.

AAC Essentials 8 Benefits:

• Whitens complexion
• Smoothens skin
• Minimizes pores
• Doubles as treatment for acne
• Minimizes Wrinkles
• Gives a dewy and glass-skin glow
• Improves skin pigmentation
• Increases cell turnover

I’m onto my first week of using the AAC Essentials line. So far, so good. I’m loving the way my face feels every morning. No drastic improvement yet. But will sure let you guys in at the end of my second week. It should be good as it claims. It won’t be ordered by people from far away Japan, where there are loads of holy grail beauty products for nothing. 🙂

Asian Aesthetic is also known for their other services like their non-invasive fat reduction and their Melt that Double Chin Away procedures.

You deal with so much stress during the weekdays that when the weekend comes around, you just want to forget about work altogether. You deserve the downtime and if you can get a break, you should. However, when you get back to work on Monday, it’s back to the same old stressful routine.
