Even without makeup, Kathryn Bernardo has one of the most beautiful faces—and smoothest complexions—in showbiz. Wondering how she maintains a flawless complexion despite being exposed to the harsh rays of the sun and of studio lights, and of course, having to wear makeup almost every day?
“Glowing skin is a sign that it is healthy, and maintenance and a good skin regimen is really the key in bringing out that glow,” says Dr. Aivee Teo, a fellow of The Philippine Dermatological Society and the Teen Queen’s trusted dermatologist.
“Kathryn has combination skin, which means sometimes she’s dry and sometimes she’s oily. It can be quite complex especially when it comes to skin treatments, but a good skin regimen would be a big help in maintaining her skin.
Dr. Teo advises removing makeup before bed (the Teen Queen also gives her skin a rest from makeup when she’s not working) and using the right moisturizer for your skin type. “Sunscreen should also always be applied even if you’ll be staying indoors, as UV rays can still penetrate through,” she adds.
Each person’s skin is unique, and it’s important to nail down a foolproof skin regimen you can count on, whether you’ve got combination skin like Kathryn, or you’ve got oily, dry, or acne-prone skin.
One final reminder from Dr. Teo: “Find a board-certified dermatologist that you can trust and are comfortable in discussing your skin concerns with, because self-medication can be harmful to the skin especially if the products or treatments that are used are not suited to you and may also contain harmful ingredients.”
Having flawless, glowing skin is the best beauty statement you can make, so take care of your complexion well.
