Free in my skin

by - September 14, 2014

They say the skin is one of the most important parts of our body and therefore we have to take care of it very well. But of course, there are times when it's inevitable for us to experience dry, itchy and sensitive skin because of the pollution and bipolar weather. So, when our skin gets irritated, we are definitely affected by this and it can cause for us to feel insecure physically and emotionally. These feelings can hold us back from the freedom of making our own decisions and pursue our dreams and passion.

But that freedom should begin from within, from loving oneself and liberating it from insecurities. Being free is being comfortable in one's own skin. Unfortunately, having sensitive skin makes us miss out on life's many opportunities.

What can we do to battle these emotional struggles and self-doubt?

Fortunately, Physiogel has recently launched a campaign called the Free in My Skin Movement. This aims to empower women to fully embrace and participate in life by freeing them from dry and sensitive skin, because having dry and sensitive skin can serve as a hindrance for women to fully function to their best abilities. This movement also aims to honour smart, strong, sensitive women who have faced their insecurities and are now embracing and living life to the fullest. Just like modelm TV host and entrepreneur Patti Grandidge.

Patti, one of the country's freshest and most beautiful faces, admitted that she used to be like one of every two Filipinas who suffered from dry and sensitive skin.

“It’s amazing how one simple change in my skincare has renewed my confidence,” she enthused.  “One of the best feelings is when you feel confident, and have control of your life, like I can do anything! And with Physiogel, I am Free In My skin to do just about anything."

“The Free in My Skin movement is not just about creating a nurturing community of  smart, strong and sensitive women, but is also as a way of honoring these women who didn’t let their dry-skin insecurities prevent them from being the best versions of themselves,” says General Manager of GSK Consumer Healthcare, Mr. Jeoffrey Yulo.

And to officially launch the Free in My Skin Movement, Patti Grandidge encourages women to join her in honouring the smart, strong and sensitive women in our lives who have all been a source of inspiration. Think of three smart, strong, and sensitive women you know and you are proud of and tag them on your Facebook post like this…

Me, Cher, Nikita, Ana, Yuki and Christine. :)

I myself have joined in this movement along with my fellow blogger friends. I wrote above the ladies that have inspired me in life and you too can do the same!:) Here's a sample…

"I honour these smart, strong and sensitive women in my life: @Nickie De Jesus @Ana Gonzales @Yuki Tansengco! You girls are amazing!:) #FreeInMySkin #NowPayitForward #PhysiogelPH"

Every woman is encourage to be part of this movement and just by posting these on your walls, you can make this movement a success and make those women in your life happy. :)

Aside from learning about this wonderful movement, I was also able to try Physiogel for myself. I was actually in awe when I found out that my skin rating was 30.5. This meant that I had low normal skin. That's dry. :( 

Beb Ana had a rating of 35. But after the Physiogel lady attendants applied the Physiogel Cleanser, Cream and Lotion on our hands, we were surprised that our rating went from 30+ to 50+!:) That's a huge change! We found out that Physiogel actually locks moisture in and this allows Physiogel to repair dehydrated skin and revitalize the skin- keeping it healthy from within.

True enough, Physiogel has been good for my youngest son Asher. He has skin asthma, so using ordinary soap is a big NO-NO for him. It's heartbreaking whenever he suffers from intense itchiness, because it really gets to him. He scratches endlessly and it ends up making his skin rough and irritated. I've tried using mild soaps, but so far nothing has made him feel at ease like Physiogel. :) Oh and Phyisogel is free from perfumes, preservatives or colorants, which makes it extra perfect for babies. :)

Along with Physiogel, let's help spread the #FREEINMYSKIN movement and empower women!:)
