Skincare resolutions and favorite products for 2023
The Y.O.U. Beauty team cheers for a brighter, better, and more beautiful new year
Better sleeping habits, eating healthier, prioritizing self-care—we all have different resolutions and goals to achieve for the new year. For everyone who promised themselves to be more consistent with their skincare routine, get more motivation from one of the leading local skincare brands in the Philippines right now, Y.O.U. Beauty, as their team shares their resolution and other insights in looking the best version of “you.”
From massage routines, protecting skin from aggressors, to learning more about one’s own skin needs, read what the team has to say about better and brighter skin for 2023.
- “Make sunscreen part of everyday routine”—Lois Tagle, 24
“Working in front of the computer every day is a big factor that greatly affects me from keeping my skin healthy and young. I’ve learned that exposing skin to UVA, UVB, and blue light from smart devices, computers, and TVs, even when working indoors, may potentially damage skin, increase melanin production and hyperpigmentation which may cause melanoma and age spots in the future.
“Second, blue light can also create free radicals that may cause inflammation, that may lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastic tissue in our skin. This year, I am committed to using the Y.O.U. Beauty Triple UV Elixir as my daily sunscreen. What I like about it is that it has SPF 50+, PA++++, and broad spectrum that protects my skin from UVA, UVB, and blue light. And it leaves no white cast!”
- “Start doing face massages”—Samantha Cruz, 22
“I am guilty of quickly rubbing skincare products onto my face just to finish off my day and night routine. This year, I am investing more time in doing face massages, as it helps in promoting healthy skin while relaxing the facial muscles. It also helps to enhance the effects of facial serums. And for that bright and glowing skin, I use the Radiance Up! Antioxidant Serum. It has Symwhite 377, known to be a safe and an effective ingredient that brightens and lightens your dark spots.”
- “Understanding my skincare products”—Irish Jimenez, 25
“Amid the saturated market of skincare products and thousands of skincare routine suggestions on social media, I’ve learned that the best way to achieve that glow from within is to understand the need of my skin. This 2023, understanding the exact function of your skincare products will also help you maintain a simple skin care routine that you can rely on. To keep my skin healthy and acne free, one of my non-negotiable steps is cleansing with the Acneplus Low pH Cleanser, which is gentle on the skin as it has a low pH formula that is infused with corn mint oil, to cleanse and refresh my skin. It’s also enriched with 4D Centella and Herbal Fusion Actives that helps reduce skin inflammation.”
- “Adding eye cream in my skincare routine”—Jennika Casin, 27
“The earliest symptoms of aging are often seen around the eyes with fine lines, dark circles, and puffy eyes. These are concerns that I feel make me look older than my age. The skin surrounding our eyes is thinner, and that makes our face more susceptible to environmental aggressors such as blue light and UV radiation.
“To prevent further signs of aging, this year, I am adding eye cream to my skin care routine. The Advanced Youth Recharging Peptide Eye Cream does wonders by brightening the under eyes and keeping it firm. It is charged with caffeine and Plantide X, that help reduce puffiness and fine lines. It even comes with a ceramic applicator for the delicate eye area.”
- “Staying hydrated and prioritizing moisturizers”—Mike Cabbo, 36
“Keeping your skin hydrated makes your skin always at its best. To step up my skin care routine, I will not neglect applying my moisturizers and serums, day and night. Adding onto my skin care stash is the Y.O.U. Beauty Biomecera Advanced Booster Serum that helps strengthen the skin barrier and keeps our skin hydrated, smoother, and radiant. Also making it to the list is the Y.O.U. Beauty Radiance Up! Deep Moisturizing Cream, which has Ceramide 1-3-6 that helps maintain the moisture on our skin.”
