In a picture-perfect world where filters and full-on makeup are just about normal as it gets, it still can’t be helped to feel insecure about oily and acne-prone skin (which are common skin issues, by the way). That’s why it’s a breath of fresh air whenever we see individuals who post actual no-makeup selfies on their social media accounts or learn about beauty brands that promote self-love and confidence.
One company that upholds this belief is Mestiza—a local skincare brand that provides good quality farm-to-skin skincare products. Contrary to what Mestiza means, the brand is for young, independent women of all colors and ethnicity who find confidence and beauty in their own skin—regardless of their imperfections.
But no matter what our skin color or skin type is, as we age, our skin needs utmost care to prevent and cure skin problems. And one vital (but mostly overlooked) skincare step is cleansing.
You’re probably thinking, “I do know how to wash my face!” But do you really? It’s one thing to just splash your face with water and lather on facial wash, but another to deep cleanse your face. Cleansing your face is a lot more than just using a facial soap—it’s also about knowing what it’s made of. And while you might be tempted to just pick anything from the counter, it’s best if you use natural products that are free from harmful chemicals.

All these are made through cold process method which preserves the efficacy of all ingredients such as VCO, papaya extract, calamansi extract, banana extract, and carrot extract. In effect, skin is healthier, moisturized, rejuvenated, clearer, and glowing—your formula for a happy, confident self.
