This was me, six years ago. I am in my desired weight. I look happy in the picture, but it was not easy. I’ve always been a big girl and I always struggle to lose weight. Yes, I am that thin then, but I actually had to do different fad diets just to keep my weight down. I drank slimming coffee, stopped eating rice, and all those fad diets that are readily available. I love to eat! My mom and dad are the best cooks, and how I wish I can still eat their cooking until now that I already live away from them.
Today, I am a lot of pounds away from that picture but, I am not being hard on myself as I was before. I gained more confidence on myself because I’ve learned that my weight does not define me. I gained more confidence because I have supportive and positive people in my life that sees right through my imperfections. It’s not all about the weight, always remember that!
SkinWhite Advanced PowerWhitening Lotion, P71 for 50ml, P123.25 for 75ml, P235 for 200ml
I am so lucky to have received the SkinWhite Advanced PowerWhitening Lotion because not only does it smell really good but it also promises a noticeably whiter skin instantly upon application! It also has SPF to help protect skin from UV rays and darkening.
This lotion uses an exclusive Advanced Tripower Technology to whiten instantly and continuously to help reveal your whitest white. It also contains a Vitanourish formula that’s spiked with vitamins B3, B5, and E to give your skin intense moisturization and protects you from UV rays and further skin darkening with SPF20.
Applying the lotion for the first time made my skin rosier! I did not expect a very drastic whitening effect because I know that it will take more time to see changes in my skin color. I have a medium complexion and though I try the skin whitening products does not mean that I don’t love my skin color because I really love it a lot! 🙂 I go for the moisturizing, brightening and protection against UV rays!
SkinWhite Launches The #BetterMe Campaign & Captivate Council—Batch 2!
Everyone wants to be a better version of themselves. That’s why SkinWhite, the leading and pioneer skin whitening brand in the Philippines, aims to give young Filipinas the tools they need to improve who they are—both inside and out—through the #BetterMe campaign. “SkinWhite’s #BetterMe campaign inspires me a lot,” shares actress and SkinWhite ambassador, Kim Chiu. “It makes us girls look at the brighter side of life. I can now say I’m a #BetterMe [because of it.]”
The Captivate Council
After its initial launch in 2013, the #BetterMe movement has become even bigger and better! To help inspire even more teens, SkinWhite held a casting call to scout for the loveliest and most inspiring girls for the second batch of the Captivate Council. Approximately 500 aspiring teens from some of the most prestigious college campuses in the country auditioned, but only 25 girls were handpicked. The basis for making this prestigious cut? Their accomplishments at school and ability to inspire others with their go-getting, stay confident attitude.
Throughout the four-month campaign, the members of the Captivate Council can look forward to magazine features, multi-media exposure, and lots of fun events like the #BetterMe Ball. “We also included outreach activities and fitness parties because when it comes to becoming a #BetterMe, you need a more holistic approach. We want the members of the SkinWhite’s Captivate Council to lead by example,” shares Liz Caceres, assistant brand manager for SkinWhite. “It’s not just about looking good on the outside, but feeling good and doing good, too.
Outer Confidence Through Creating A #BetterLook
For November, it was all about teaching the Captivate Council to celebrate their own unique beauty. Each member was treated to a fashion and beauty makeover where they were taught how to enhance their own individual assets and body type. To look even more gorgeous during their makeover shoot, the girls prepped their skin from head to toe by trying out samples of the SkinWhite Power Whitening Face Cream Powder (to score a powdery fresh, white glow on their complexion) and SkinWhite Advanced Power Whitening Lotion (for instantly whiter, brighter skin upon application). “Being part of the Captivate Council helps me love myself more, says Chrissa Taleon, UST, 20. “I also noticed that my self-confidence has grown the more I use the SkinWhite products. [Both these factors] motivate me to share and inspire other people especially young girls.”
Spreading The #BetterMe Message
These days, it’s easy for teens to become lost in social media drama or engulfed in their #fomo fear of missing out. Through the #BetterMe campaign and the Captivate Council, we want to remind them of what really matters and allow them to develop their own inner confidence, so they can be kinder to themselves and others. “What’s amazing is that these girls also have a wide network within their respective circles. So even if their classmates and friends aren’t part of the council, they can still share what they’ve learned through the monthly activities we’ve arranged for them,” says Caceres. “It’s a great way to spread the #BetterMe image and help more teens become empowered.”
I do not have the best skin everyday that’s why I also need some products for a pimple-free and glowing complexion. Aside from the lotion for my body, I also have the soap and cleanser to try! Here are what we can expect from these two products.
Whenever your skin is exposed to the sun, it causes your body to produce more melanin. The more melanin you have, the darker your skin becomes. This soap helps you prevent and reverse skin darkening whenever you use it, so you score noticeably whiter skin in as early as 7 days! It uses Synchronized Whitening action and is enriched with the Vitanourish formula that contains vitamins B5, B3, and E to effectively whiten, soften, and hydrate your skin.
SkinWhite Advanced Whitening Facial Cleanser, 75ml, 135ml
Sometimes, washing your face with ordinary soap and water isn’t enough—especially with the heat and pollution in our country. Remove stubborn dirt, excess oil, and makeup residue with this facial cleanser. It contains micro-exfoliating technology and Witch Hazel Extract to help banish acne, give your blush white skin, and helps prevent dryness with its Vitanourish Formula. With continued use, your complexion becomes whiter, smoother, and blemish-free. You can see results in just 7 days, too!
