Physiogel Beauty Experts Circle

Good evening ladies,

So everybody knows, that when it comes to health, one of the biggest concern of everyone, no matter the sex, is the skin. It is, after all, the biggest organ of our body. Admit it or not, we pay more attention to skin repair and condition than we do any other organ in our body to the point that we gauge a surgeon's ability to heal, with their ability to make nice skin repairs. Because really, nobody likes to see rashes, pimples, and all those unsightly stuff. Right?

Anyway, we've had our fair share of unfortunate skin dilemmas. Dawn has oil control problems which makes her prone to break outs. Liz has a TON of dry skin problems and also oil control problems. And we've been experimenting on a number of ways and a number of products.

So when Physiogel sent us an invite to their Beauty Experts Circle Event, we just had to make time.


 August 31, 2013, 3PM
at the Oz Bar, Roof Deck, Holiday Inn & Suites Makati 

The very lovely Patty Laurel hosted the event. It opened with a very informative discussion on basic information about our skin and its role, about dry skin and what treatments we do to help alleviate it, and what would be the ideal way to treat it.

We've known about Physiogel for a very long time. Liz has used the product when she was still a kid as part of the treatment for her feet which  had some form of dermatitis. Unfortunately, during those days, it was exclusively sold by dermatologists and it was crazy expensive. Nowadays, they're readily available in our drugstores.

Going back to the event, the lecture was a little long so to summarize...

The conventional moisturizers that we use have in them, emulsifiers that superficially hydrates the skin. Once you wash, it's gone. However, there's a new development called DMS or Derma Membrane Structure Technology that addresses the main problem of dry skin, which is to repair the skin barrier.

How?  This is by resembling the natural building blocks of the skin to effectively help repair the skin barrier and help prevent moisture loss. The picture below demonstrates how the skin, DMS, and conventional moisturizers would look under the microscope.

And this revolutionary technology is utilized by Physiogel.

So as you can see, Physiogel is hypoallergenic. Its irritative (if there is such a word) effect to the skin is comparable to water, which is next to none. That's why it's perfect for allergic skins and for baby skin.

Having soft skin safer for taking care of baby
Because babies have sensitive skin they are more prone to redness, itching, and irritation. Sure, you keep baby’s irresistible cheeks from being chapped with appropriate coverings from the heat and humidity, you consistently choose diapers that don’t irritate, and that you bathe baby daily to make him or her even more cuddly and cute.

Keep your baby’s skin perfect, kissably soft and rashes-free by using Physiogel daily.

Expert-recommended Physiogel is clinically proven to repair and rehydrate dry, sensitive skin and Physiogel Cream and Physiogel Lotion is your first line of defense against skin dryness. Physiogel Cleanser is made for dry, sensitive skin with gentleness that is next to water, with one of the least irritation potentials. It is suitable for use with or without water.

Physiogel is the No. 1 dermatologist-prescribed moisturizer according to Philippine Medical Data Index (PMDI MAT 2012) and is available in leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide. It is also available in handy 10ml sachets. Ask your dermatologist and pediatrician about Physiogel.

This is the Physiogel advantage: Healthy, moisturized skin through repairing. With Physiogel, you can maintain beautiful, smooth, supple, and soft skin this season and beyond.

And great news for us, the prices have already been reduced for as much as 29%! Amazing right?

And of course, what's a beauty circle without talking about make-up. 
Physiogel for make up? YES, yes we can!

Makeup for sensitive skin
So women who love makeup but have sensitive skin can worry no more. But, of course, they should stay away from cosmetics that can cause irritation, inflammation and other allergic reactions. Be sure to check that the label states specifically that the product is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and fragrance-free.

For women with extra-sensitive skin, the trend is to find a foundation that has few chemicals and preservatives in them, especially those with an SPF between 15 to 30 for added skin protection. 

Foundations that are silicone-based and in powder form are also best for sensitive skin, because they don’t irritate skin and don’t clog pores.

Delicate skin that tends to turn red, flaky or stings can get glowing when mineral makeup is used. Just be sure it’s free from fragrances and dyes. It’s recommended to use a powder brush then switch to a concealer brush for proper blending.

Even sensitive skin can be rosy. When choosing a blush, pick one that is closest to your natural skin tone. 

Experts agree that a powder blush is the easiest to use and that it stays on the skin the longest. Always keep in mind, though, to use a brush that won’t cause any irritation.

Here’s a beauty insider’s tip: It’s great to use Physiogel Cleanser as a makeup remover for women with sensitive skin. It can be used with or without water, just wipe off with tissue.

 The beautiful Ms. RB Chanco demonstrates how she's been using Physiogel on her clients and how it's an essential part of her make-up routine.

And after all the tips and insights she's given, here they are posing happily.

It was a long day indeed and we felt absolutely pampered. The food was great and elegant looking.

So thanks to Physiogel for inviting us to this event!

And thanks for all the goodies... We're sure to try them out and give you guys a full review. It might take a while but do watch out for it. :)
