What would you do if you had an extra 20 min every day?
Back with more updates from my Cetaphil Experience!
As I'd previously mentioned, the Experience wasn't just a vacay but it was a thorough retreat where we got to eat well, rest well (ahem, spa...) and learn the best ways to care for ourselves and our skin.

Besides debunking several skin myths, we also attended local workshops created specially for every country involved in the Experience. I mean, although we all live in SE Asia, the climate, urban landscape and living conditions vary from country to country... such as how Singapore (& Malaysia) very fortunately get to enjoy the annual haze lol.
Also, air pollution (such as dust and chemicals in the air) affects our skin and can result in dark spots, increased redness and wrinkles... which basically translates to premature ageing!
Which is why cleansing is very important! While it is essential to thoroughly cleanse our skin to get rid of the dirt and grime that gets piled on throughout the day, it is also important that we use a gentle cleanser so it doesn't strip the skin of its natural moisture. You guys know how I have been using the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for more than a DECADE now and I still maintain my stand that it is one of the most mild and effective cleansers around - at an affordable price tag too!
It is also important that you moisturise your skin twice a day (even for oily skin!) and use broad spectrum (i.e. UVA & UVB) sun protection.
However, I also learnt that when it comes to skincare, less is more and here's how you can benefit from a simpler regime:
Besides skincare workshops, we also had photography lessons - I mean after all, you're putting 27 bloggers together RIGHT? :joy:
If you want to up your flatlay game, you might want to check out this video (I'm in itttttt!) about the product styling workshop we'd attended with award-winning Chicago photographer, Cynthia Hunt, and pick up a tip or two yourself.
One night, we made a bonfire and toasted marshmallows by the sea
Sigh. Certainly missing the experience (and these girlsssss) already!
