I Tried Sarah Lahbati’s Skin Care Routine | #7DaysOfCetaphil

Last August 20-26, 2018, Cetaphil held a 7-day event featuring their campaign “7 Days Of Cetaphil” at SM Makati where everyone can take advantage of exciting promos and discounts available for all Cetaphil products and learn skin care tips and techniques from different skin care experts and icons for free.
I got to attend one of the talks where the featured speaker is no less than celebrity mom and actress Sarah Lahbati, one of the country’s most beautiful moms. Sarah is known for her flawless glass skin. I admire her beauty and how she manages to maintain really good skin despite of being exposed to layers of make-up during her shoots for all her TV and movie projects. She taught us how she was able to achieve glass skin using different Cetaphil products. So, this is her routine:
Step 1 : CLEANSE with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser or Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths
For use without water : Apply a liberal amount of cleanser to the skin and rub gently. Remove excess with a soft cloth leaving a thin film on the skin.
For use with water: Apply cleanser to the skin and rub gently then rinse.
If you are on the go, you can just cleanse your skin by wiping your skin with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths.
Step 2 : MOISTURIZE with Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion
Sarah suggested the use of Cetaphil Mositurizing Lotion after cleansing to prevent skin dryness and reveal your skin’s natural glow.
Step 3 : SUNBLOCK with Cetaphil Sun SPF 50+
Since we live in a humid country, it is highly recommended to apply sunblock during the day to prevent skin damage caused by high exposure to sun rays.
In my case, I did a little shortcut for Steps 2 and 3 by using Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15 / PA++ during the day since I always have little time preparing for work. Then at night, I go back to the suggested steps 1-3 above.
I did this routine for a straight 7 days and below are the pictures showing daily results. I took the photos the next day after doing the day and night routine each day. Note that none of these photos are edited or filtered so it shows everything good or not so good about my skin:
On day 1, I felt the difference of applying Cetaphil on my skin. It do not feel like my skin is being tightened or stretched. It also feels light on the skin and the scent is not too strong which I loved.
On the second day, I already noticed a brighter glow on my face. And it still feels so soft!
I sustained use on days 4 to 6. The difference is quite unnoticeable in the photos but my white heads have decreased.
Had I not documented the daily progress, I wouldn’t be noticing that my day 7 look is already very far from my day 1. Some of my friends have already said I looked a little younger and fresher now. In my facebook posts, some of them even asked what my skin care secret is.
Cetaphil can be a great product for all skin-types. Since its active ingredients are not harmful, it doesn’t tire the skin unlike other products. I noticed and felt the difference and I intend to use it continuously.
Cetaphil is advised for all skin types but as they say, there is no one-size-fits all when it comes to addressing one’s skin problems. Seek the advise of a dermatologist to make sure what you put on your skin addresses the real issue or root of the skin problem.
This is now #MyCetaphilSkin. Have you tried Cetaphil too? How do you find it? I’d like to know your thoughts. Please comment below.
