Kamille Sardua, Assistant Category Manager of Watsons Philippines, shared her excitement about the availability of the innovative skincare brand in their stores nationwide, stating, “Together with Acne-Aid, We strive to provide not only accessible but effective ways to address your skin concerns specifically for oil control and acne solutions. Our goal here is not only to address these concerns and provide solutions but of course to help you look good, do good and feel great.”

The event featured an insightful talk from Dr. Jarische Lao-Ang, a board-certified dermatologist, popularly known on Tiktok as @TheDermaMamaPH, focused on dermatological tips and prescribed skincare regimens for oily and acne-prone skin. Her expertise underscored the importance of using effective skincare products and ingredients in maintaining skin health and boosting self-esteem. She mentioned three key ingredients in looking for a cleanser: Myristic Acid that has good emulsifying properties which cleanses the skin by emulsifying oils and dirt, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, a mild cleansing agent with foam-boosting properties, and Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, a cleansing agent which is resistant to collapse even in contact with sebum or oil. She also talked about Acnecare Bio which has triple action properties that fight acne-causing germs, protects the skin by visibly improving appearance, and soothes the skin that helps in reducing redness. “Not everything that you see online may be applicable to you. It’s really important to stick to the basics and to find the right formulation with the right ingredients for your skin to be able to target your skin concerns. Control Acne with the RIGHT START to be in your most confident self!” said Dr. Lao-Ang.

In addition, Edlene Cabral, a celebrity fashion stylist, discussed fashion trends, timeless fit check tips, and styling techniques for all shapes and sizes. “Don’t be afraid to risk, experiment for you to evolve and find the better you when you trust yourself.” Cabral also quoted the globally renowned German fashion designer, German Karl Lagerfeld, “Reinvent new combinations of what you already own. Improvise. Become more creative. Not because you have to, but because you want to. Evolution is the secret for the next step.” Cabral summed up her stance in confidently expressing oneself through fashion, “Confidence is a lifelong journey and fashion is just one aspect of it. It (fashion) should empower and uplift you, not dictate your worth.”
