Most of us who live in humid, sunny Malaysia would’ve probably experienced some form of skin-related issue no thanks to the weather. Whether it’s oily, dry, acne-prone skin, large pores, or blackheads, we’ve all probably experienced every single one of those problems at least once before. If this is you, here are some struggles you can 12/10 relate to:
1. When your mum is always like, “You never drink enough water, that’s why lah”
Even if you tripped and fell, she’d probably blame it on not drinking enough water too.
2. When you have to decide whether to clip your hair up to avoid pimples, or NOT clip your hair up just to look good (but suffer breakouts later)
It’s a hard decision to make. Unless, of course, you’re in Sekolah Menengah and you have no choice because if you let your hair down the guru disiplin will trim it right off.
3. Period or no period, you still get breakoutsAnd it gets worse during your period. Either way, your skin is always acting up.
4. When aunties / uncles/ random strangers try to give you advice for your skin
It’s okay if you actually asked for their advice. However, it’s NOT okay if you didn’t even ask but the aunty or uncle decides to go on and on about what you should eat or drink, what you should apply and so forth.
5. When you’re told to avoid oily and spicy food but ALL Malaysian food is oily and/or spicy
It’s like they want us to starve or something. How can we avoid spicy and oily food in Malaysia?! That means staying away from char kuey teow, curry mee and all that delicious local food. Cries in a corner.
6. Using makeup = breakouts the next day
It’s a vicious cycle: To cover up your breakouts, you use makeup, but then more pimples appear after that. If you don’t use makeup, everyone will see your pimples regardless. It’s a lose-lose situation. T_T
7. When facial products either make your skin too dry, too oily, or too sensitive… no in between
Regardless whether or not you have 10/10 complexion or you struggle keeping your face oil- and pimple-free, finding the right facial cleanser can be like finding a needle in a haystack. There are thousands of products available today, yet that gives us another (first world) problem: WHICH TO USE?! Well, regardless of what skin condition you have, flawless, smooth, dry, oily or sensitive, here’s a product that you might want to try because it works on any skin type!
We’re talking about Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser! This cleanser helps to gently clean and moisturise your skin without stripping off its natural oils and it’s great for all skin types!
In fact, it comes with countless other benefits too, such as:
- Free of soap, lather, foam and fragrance (which are ingredients in skincare products that usually cause breakouts)
- pH balanced, meaning the pH value is very close to the skin’s pH reading, thus ensuring it isn’t too alkaline
- Clinically proven to be non-irritating
- Dermatologist recommended
And although it says “Gentle”, Cetaphil is able to effectively remove impurities and light makeup without over-drying the skin! Omg, dream come true! But don’t take our word for it, a study actually found that 99% of Malaysian women agree that the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser gently cleans and moisturises without stripping the skin of its natural oils!
