Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Last Saturday, I was asked to host Physiogel's Beauty Expert Circle at the Holiday Inn Makati. Unlike most beauty talks, this one was custom made for girls who deal with rashes, irritations, redness and other skin problems associated to those with sensitive skin. And yes I could easily relate because as you know, I am part of the sensitive skin faction. As I've mentioned before, I've been battling with mild eczema for years now---it's been a source of discomfort and stress. I'm just so blessed to have such an amazing derma (Dr. Kaycee Reyes) who has been closely monitoring my condition for a while now. My skin is at a much healthier state these days but I have to work extra hard to take care of it. In fact, one of the creams my doctor has recommended for my daily moisture maintenance is from Physiogel :)

Here's more info from Stiefel: Having dry, sensitive skin is a common problem. In fact, one in three or 35 percent of women have dry skin but don’t realize that they do.  Women can easily get dry skin from exposure to the environment. But even if they’re not under harsh weather conditions, other factors such as stress, air conditioning, smoking, bathing in hot water and using soap can contribute to destroying the natural moisture balance of the skin, making it rougher and more sensitive. Skin may also have a dehydrated or shrunken appearance while simultaneously feeling tight and itchy.

Experts know that dry, sensitive skin requires special care and attention. Moisture is more prone to escape and evaporate, leading to dry, dehydrated skin. Most often than not, experts recommend Physiogel moisturizers from Stiefel, a GSK company. Physiogel is formulated with the revolutionary Derma Membrane Structure (DMS) Technology, which resembles the natural building blocks of the skin to effectively help repair the skin barrier and help prevent moisture loss.“Conventional moisturizers may only mask skin dryness to give skin transitory moisture; moisture that can be washed off by rinsing or washing. Physiogel, however, moisturizes by mimicking the natural lipid composition of the skin and keeps it hydrated for up to three days, even with washing or bathing”, shared Em Millan, product manager of GSK.

Physiogel is available in your local drugstores and also at Watsons---the place to be! Yeah, yeah, yeah!

I too have been dealing with eczema for the past few days. Thanks for this post. I'll ask my derma if I can use Physiogel ;-)

Hi Patty, it's nice to know that Physiogel is now available at the local drugstore. 2 years ago when I went home (Dumaguete) I can only get it from my derma's clinic, which she prescribed (Physiogel A1) for my rashes around my breast. Keep it up in endorsing-blogging trustworthy products. God bless.

Hi Ms.Patty,

May I know where the clinic of Dr. Kaycee Reyes is located? I have skin asthma and I'm looking for a good dermatologist here in Manila. I haven't found one since I started working here, I still have to go back home in Bicol whenever my eczema worsens to consult with my dermatologist.

Dr Kaycee Reyes's clinic is located on the 2nd floor of the Mercury Drug Building in the Fort (across St Lukes) :)
