ISkin Transformation Kit: Specially Formulated for Asian Skin

Is it true that beauty products formulated for Caucasians are not as effective when used by Asians?

This is perhaps one of the most arguable subjects in the beauty industry today, and for good reasons. As more and more cosmeceutical companies (both local and abroad) look at our country as a viable market for their products, it has become much easier for the rest of us, 21st century simpletons, to find ourselves trapped in the middle of a fierce marketing battlefield where messages with somewhat contradicting information are regularly thrown.

“Some international cosmeceutical companies tend to apply the same science and principles that gave them success in western countries here in our region,” says Dr. Evelyn San Luis, a Medical Aesthetic Professional at Flawless Face and Body Center (Flawless). “Although not entirely a bad thing, this practice could pose major disadvantages for both these companies and their consumers primarily because of the fact that our skin is structured differently, and therefore, have dissimilar needs.”

Citing not only the difference between the composition of Asian and Caucasian skin, but also the external factors that affect our biggest organ’s condition, Dr. San Luis says that maintaining the optimum health and natural beauty of oriental skin calls for more specialized and thorough regimens.

“There are several factors that greatly affect the health and appearance of our skin,” she explains. “Clearly, we have a lot more on our plates. Compared to Caucasians, we have more sebaceous glands, larger melanin cells and a thicker epidermis. We are also more prone to darkening and pigmentation due to the fact that our skin has more melanocytes (mature, melanin-forming cells). That’s why it’s really comforting to know that there are now companies like ISkin New York who are into formulating beauty products that cater to our specific needs.”

Well renowned and a favorite brand especially among celebrities, ISkin New York is a leading provider of premium skincare programs that deal with various skin issues through the process of cell renewal; that is to say, product lines that initiate a chain reaction of cell rebirth from deep into the skin. Even more impressive, they also offer products that contain specialized peptides—chains of amino acids that perform specific functions like anti-aging and skin lightening agents. These specialized peptides allow everyone to enjoy the brand’s benefits for longer periods of time and without subjecting themselves to harmful chemicals.

ISkin New York’s flagship program, the ISkin Transformation Kit, is designed with the Asian skin in mind. Its advanced formulation promises to increase the skin’s tolerance to environmental factors and diminish any visible sign of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentations and rough skin. According to Dr. San Luis, the program is perfect for those who, due to their fast-paced lifestyle and constant exposure to free radicals, have skins that are aging faster than they should.

“Each individual product included in the ISkin Transformation Kit has been carefully blended and tested several times to ensure quality. They work deep into the skin to stimulate new cell growth, improve circulation and help rebuild collagen.”

ISkin’s Transformation Kit is composed of top-quality products that promise to bring out the best in your Asian skin. It includes: a mild plant-based deep cleanser that effectively removes dirt and other impurities without harming your skin; a balancing toner restores the skin’s pH balance—boosting its ability to absorb nutrients in preparation for the creams that will follow; a lightweight whitening moisturizer that targets pigmentations; a broad spectrum sunscreen that doesn’t leave a greasy feel on the skin; and two patented rejuvenating creams that effectively stimulate cell activity and collagen and elastin formation.

ISkin New York is a U.S.-based skincare laboratory whose range of premium products caters to the lifestyle needs of modern men and women. The brand is famed for integrating cellular and nutritional sciences into the development of its products’ formulations—helping everyone achieve visible transformation and producing healthy and radiant skin regardless of age and skin type. In the Philippines, ISkin New York is exclusively distributed by Flawless.

Staying safe for the summer with Iskin Daily Sunshield SPF 25

As far as UV protection is concerned, one of the best ways to keep yourself safe is by staying indoors, locked in a room with tinted UV-protective windows, curtains drawn for the rest of your life. However, we all know that this is not possible, especially during summer when Mother Nature forgets our sins and turn all sunny and pleasantly inviting.

 

In the past, it was believed that the best way to enjoy the outdoors safely is to wear a sunscreen that has sun protection factor (SPF). SPF tells us the comparison between the amount of time it takes for UVB rays to redden our skin when wearing a sunscreen and when exposed to the sun naked. However, since the discovery of the harmful effects of UVA, some experts suggest that SPF protection may not be enough. This is why dermatologists advise that, when looking for a sunscreen, people should opt for products that not only have an SPF of 15 or higher but also contain the phrases ‘broad spectrum protection’ or ‘UVA/UVB protection,’ like ISKIN’s Daily Sunshield SPF 25.

Using advanced micronized zinc oxide formulation to increase the skin’s tolerance to environmental factors, ISKIN’s Daily Sunshield SPF 25 prevents sun damage from happening by forming a thin barrier that prevents UVB and UVA rays from penetrating our skin. The advanced technology this product employs greatly reduces the possibility of nasty skin conditions like melasma, premature aging and cancers. Specially formulated for Asian skin, its light and easy-to-absorb consistency makes it ideal for daily use.

Flawless Face and Body Clinic

I know a lot of girls like me have a loooong list of skin imperfections that we would love to get rid of. As for me, black heads, pimples, dark spots resulting from past breakouts and of course, dark underarms. As one of the leading skin clinics in the country, I’m sure Flawless can provide you with the best treatment needed for any skin or body concern you may have.

Flawless has already been operating for more than 10 years now and has even expanded to more than 30 branches nationwide. Each clinic has its own in-house doctor and well trained medical professionals who are highly proficient.

During my recent visit to Manila, I had a chance to drop by Flawless at their Megamall branch since i had a Gift Certificate given to me in exchange for an interview/feature on Flawless’ monthly online magazine, Flaunt, for their September 2012 issue. It really took me more than a month to finally claim the services i wanted since I’m based in the province. Speaking of the services i availed, i had to get the laser hair removal for my underarms. =p

Everything was totally covered in pink! The pink towels and facial beds even matched my nail polish color! =)

A line of products available at any Flawless branch.

Special thanks to Mr. Joel Quizon of Flawless and of course, Flawless Face and Body Clinic! =)
