WHEN one is in his early 20s and still has that youthful glow, it’s easy to take skincare for granted. Aging may seem like a distant problem. But when one doesn’t take care of his skin properly, he’ll realize the damage has been done when he starts seeing fine lines and deep wrinkles in his 30s.

It’s never too late to start. Prevention is key, and the sooner he embarks on a dedicated regimen, the better chances he’ll have in having healthier skin over time. With a variety of products out in the market, it can get intimidating trying to figure out what he needs. Celebrity doctors Manny and Pie Calayan, who have a clinic on the third floor of SM Seaside City, their only one in Cebu, share their many years of expertise by concocting these basic skincare essentials for one’s daily routine.

Anti-Wrinkle Serum

Combat the signs of aging with Manny and Pie Calayan Clinic’s Anti Wrinkle Serum. This lightweight formula visibly reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and deep wrinkles, and instantly plumps and hydrates the skin. When used twice daily, the result is an improvement of the skin’s firmness and elasticity, restoring a youthful complexion.

Moisture Plus cream

Even those who are new to skincare know that a little moisture goes a long way. For dry and sensitive skin types, Manny and Pie Calayan Clinic’s Moisture Plus is a must-have for your regimen. A rich and gentle cream for the face and neck, this complex and unique blend of three types of hyaluronic acids, each of different molecular weights, work together to hydrate the skin. Use it twice daily as it encourages the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firm and toned skin with less visible fine lines.

Matte Effect cream

Having oily skin is not an excuse to skip the moisturizer. It’s only a matter of finding the ideal one. Manny and Pie Calayan Clinic’s Matte Effect is an oil-free matte and hydrating cream that’s ideal for oily and combination skin. It instantly absorbs excess oil, provides a matte appearance for up to 10 hours, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also serves well as a makeup base and is used twice a day.

Revitaleyes De-stressing cream

Besides the overall appearance of the skin, signs of aging tend to manifest in the eye area, making it critical to have a specific product just for that. Manny and Pie Calayan Clinic’s Revitaleyes De-Stressing Cream aids in reducing the appearances of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness by plumping, tightening and hydrating the skin. This is applied two times a day as it also rejuvenates skin cells, neutralizes UV rays and fights free radicals that cause aging.

Age Defiance Tinted SPF Mousse

Even the most rigorous skin care regimen is all for naught without added protection from the sun, which also contributes to more signs of aging. Manny and Pie Calayan Clinic’s Age Defiance Tinted SPF Mousse easily takes care of that by blocking both UVA and UVB rays to prevent sun damage. This sunscreen also has a sheer tint that blends with most skin tones, and is safe for use even on the most sensitive skin. It is best to apply this cream right after your skincare routine in the morning before putting on makeup.
