The journey to healthy skin is not always tedious and boring.
At a recent Watsons ‘Syok Raya’ roadshow, Cetaphil Malaysia together with their brand ambassador, Lisa Surihani took centre stage to engage and inspire consumers about skincare.
In line with Cetaphil® and Lisa’s commitment to advocate skin health, the public at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya, witnessed how Lisa personally cares for her skin during the month of Ramadan, and in preparation for the Raya season. During this time, the down-to-earth Malaysian sweetheart also took time to connect with her fans through a meet and greet session.
As an individual who observes the month of Ramadan and juggles between work and family, Lisa understands first-hand that the body goes through many adjustments. The change of sleeping and eating patterns, and body dehydration are some of the contributing factors to the way the skin reacts. While fatigue can cause the skin to look dull or unhealthy food choices during Suhoor and Iftar can cause thirst; this will eventually lead up to the skin feeling extra dry.
It is important to take extra measures such as using gentle and moisturizing skincare products and making the conscious effort to consume food that contains vital vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to ensure that the skin stays hydrated and healthy. Lisa emphasised that it is important to focus on nourishing the foundation of the skin to ensure that it is healthy from within.
“Raya is a time when we usually put more effort to look our best among the extended family and friends, and most importantly, to feel confident about ourselves. I always look forward to the festivities and the time spent with my entire family. For us, taking a family portrait is part of our yearly tradition. But behind every photo, despite our best clothes and makeup, we cannot deny how our skin feels – whether it is dry, oily, or sensitive. Personally, truly healthy skin is one that is hydrated and well-balanced. Hence, my advice on maintaining a healthy skin is by using the right cleanser. One that is gentle yet effective and moisturizing, as well as trusted by dermatologists,” shared Lisa Surihani, Malaysian actress.
She continued, “Our skin goes through a lot and it changes from time to time – sometimes it can be oily due to hormones or dry because of dehydration. Since using Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser two years ago, I have learnt so much about what my choice of skincare can do for my skin. The Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser is soap-free, which means it does not over-dry the skin; fragrance-free, meaning it does not contain perfume that causes irritation; and above all, it is suitable for all skin types because it uses a mild and gentle formula. This means, no matter how my skin changes, my cleanser doesn’t.”
Lisa’s skin routine to maintain healthy skin:
- Cleanse: Effective cleansing can improve the quality of our skin and enhance its radiance. Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser is trusted by dermatologists to be mild, non-irritating, soap-free and fragrance-free, and safe for all skin types. It rinses easily, keeping the skin clean and hydrated.
- Moisturize: Moisturizing helps to restore the skin’s natural protective barrier. Lisa uses the Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream for long-lasting hydration to keep her skin soft and supple. Like the cleanser, it is fragrance-free, non-irritating, suitable for all skin types, with a non-greasy formulation.
- Protect: We live in a country where the sun is blazing every day. Even during cloudy days or being indoors, Lisa never forgets to put on Cetaphil® UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50+. It protects the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
“Today’s event is a great platform for both Lisa and the brand to speak personally to consumers. At the start of this partnership, our aim is to guide consumers on a journey to healthier skin. And today, Lisa sheds light to the fact that no one will have the same skin type in all the different stages of life. What we can do is nurture our skin to ensure it is healthy from within by using a gentle cleanser. A gentle cleanser is one that does not leave the skin feeling tight and squeaky clean, rather it thoroughly cleanses and leaves the skin feeling fresh and moisturized. We are proud to know that 99% of women, including Lisa, finds that with the Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser,” said Cindy Tiu, Commercial Director of Galderma Malaysia.
