I come from a family of women with fair skin—this is thanks to my maternal grandmother’s half-Spanish genes which were passed on to me. I grew up with a lot of my grandparents’ and parents’ friends pinching my rosy cheeks, telling me what a pretty little tisay I was, and honestly? I didn’t really know what it meant nor did I care much about it. At that age, all that mattered was playing a sport I loved more than life: softball.
From grade school until second year college, softball was all I ever knew. It was also due to this that I was exposed to the sun a lot, causing my skin to get tanner and tanner after each game. Summers were the most intense, because I would train almost every day under the scorching sun in preparation for the annual national tournament, where we played games in the provinces all day for a week.
In high school, I was introduced to Ultimate—a sport that all the more exposes you to the sun. Whether on the field or on the beach, Ultimate was one sport that required sunblock and loads of it. It was also around this time that my mom taught me to prioritize my skin and invest more in caring for it. Still, I enjoyed flaunting my tan and being morena. Being dark was something I savored back then, because of how quickly my skin got lighter in a matter of weeks!
As I got older, I noticed that it took a little longer for my skin to return to its natural color. I still like getting a tan every now and then. But if I wanted my skin to even out to a lighter shade, at the same time get that glow that the women in my family naturally have, I had to change up my skin regimen.
I was introduced to Belo’s Intensive Whitening Set a couple of weeks ago, which includes the Intensive Whitening Bar, Intensive Whitening Face and Neck cream, and Intensive Whitening Body Cream.
Made with Kojic Acid, which aids in the production of melanin, and Tranexamic Acids, which effectively lighten dark spots and blemishes, it intensely whitens the skin and keeps it protected from the sun due to the SPF 30 the products contain.
How do you incorporate it in your daily skincare regimen? After washing your face and taking a bath using the Intensive Whitening Bar, you can do your usual routine of prepping and toning the face, after which you can apply the Belo Intensive Whitening Face and Neck Cream. Finish it off by lathering the Intensive Whitening Body Cream just like you would a lotion. The great thing about both products containing SPF is that there’s no need to wear sunblock after.
Using Belo’s Intensive Whitening products together help achieve quicker and better results. Even though I have sensitive skin, I had no negative reaction. The smell doesn’t irritate either, which I noticed is an issue I normally encounter in some skincare products I’ve tried before. If you’re like me who was born fair but need a little help in making your skin tone even, try using Belo’s Intensive Whitening set and see for yourself how quickly the results take effect. For me, it took less than two weeks.
Belo’s Intensive Whitening Set is available for only Php 59.75 (Intensive Whitening Bar), Php 249.75 (Face and Neck Cream), and Php 199.75 (Body Cream). For more information on Belo Intensive Whitening, visit http://www.beloessentials.ph/ or check out the video below:
