Celeteque Bloggers Event + Join The Bloggers' Contest to Win FOREVER21 GC's and Innovitelle Line!

I was invited by Celeteque to participate in an event they prepared for bloggers to "know the latest breakthrough in age-defying skin care for the Filipina". I'm not getting any younger so my interest in anti-ag
ing products is growing rapidly. So last Thursday, I went to Linden Suites where the event was held to know and try the new products Celeteque is offering.

Celeteque Advanced Anti-aging Trio

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Ageing Trio

Celeteque Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer

During the event, I've learned from Dra. Nenita Alberto, dermatologist with clinics in Capitol Medical Center and The Medical City, that collagen plays a very important role on how our skin looks. It's the one that's holding our skin together. When we age, the amount of collagen in our body decreases thus, our skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles appear.

What this Anti-Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer does is it works deep down the skin to stimulate collagen formation.  It's great for sensitive skin as it's odor-free and does not clog pores.
Thanks to its double peptide complex ingredient, it promises to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in just 6 weeks! I want to finish my current facial moisturizer so I could try this already!

Celeteque Anti-Aging Power Serum Concentrated Break Off Capsules

Those cute little pearly capsules make this product interesting. I remember getting a sample of this during the Asian Secrets Lulur event but haven't tried until now because I didn't know how to use it haha. Now I have plenty of stocks yipee!

According to Celeteque, its active ingredient is Cystostimulin Lipopeptides which have strong anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties because of the exotic fruit extracts . It helps stimulate collagen and elastin production to soften, smoothen and firm skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This promises to reduce fine lines within 6 weeks of use and smoothen skin in as early as 1 week of use. wooah!

Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Trio

Celeteque Anti-Wrinkle Ultra-Hydrating Cleanser Light Cleansing Oil

It's a makeup remover and cleanser with anti-wrinkle properties. Removing waterproof makeup can be harsh to our skin especially to the area around the eyes. The idea of having an effective eye makeup remover with the benefits of reducing the lines in that area is very nice. If this works like Shu Uemura, I'll be loving this product forever. I'll prefer this as it's cheaper and locally made hehe. I'll try this in the coming weeks and will update you on how this works.

On to the event, I was one of the first ones to arrive so I was able to enjoy the good food prepared for us by the Celeteque team and Linden Suites.

Celeteque Bloggers Event

Dr. Nenita Alberto gave us tips on skin types, skin care, skin protection and damage prevention. I'll share you some of the important things I've noted:

- To prevent skin damage, you should avoid being exposed to the sun from 10am - 4pm.
- Use sunscreen daily at least 30 mins before you go out. Use SPF 15 or higher.
- Check the label on the sunscreen you're using especially if you're going to swim. If it says water-resistant, you have to reapply after 8 hours. If it's waterproof, then there's no need to apply.
- Apply moisturizer within 3 minutes after bathing.

Application of sunscreens:

Face = 1/2 to 1 tsp (5ml)
Arm (1) = 1 tsp
Leg (1) = 1 tsp
Upper Body = 2 tbsp
Whole Body = 40 grams

So don't be afraid with the amount of sunscreen you put on your body ok?

Preventions to minimize skin aging:

- Avoid sun exposure and smoking
- Avoid unnecessary stretching of the skin. So be careful when applying your eyeliner ok?
- Moisturizers are important. I admit that I get too lazy with this sometimes. But after the tips I got from Celeteque, no more lazy nights for me.
- Lead a healthy, emotional and physical lifestyle

After the talk, we tried Celeteque's Advanced Anti-Aging Trio
