Lots of people compliment me about my skin. Totoo naman, I am blessed to have inherited the good one from my mother’s side. Hanggang ngayon, hindi pa nagkaka-pimple ang nanay ko, and iilan pa rin lang ang kanyang underarm hair! Ang daya, di ba?
From time to time, I would have pimples, too, and because I am not used to managing breakouts, I must admit that I get stressed when they become really obvious. And the other thing is that although I am successfully able to cover it up with makeup most of the time, I usually end up scraping it down to an ugly scar sa sobrang kong inis. (All dermas will tell you never to do this but I do, I do! Sorry Doc!!!)
One such time was when I went to Europe – my first time pa naman din, and there was this really stubborn pimple on my face, right in the middle of my left cheek. I recently scanned photos from that trip so I could post them on peralehood.com and I realized that I don’t have much solo shots I can use simply because nakikisali talaga ang pimple sa bawat picture.
So really, I understand Belle’s concerns about her big day. Belle is also a soon-to-be Mrs. like Marian Rivera and is quite worried about how her skin will be in this once in a lifetime event! I can’t blame her since her story reveals that she’s been plagued with pimples in almost every important event of her life, and so coped by simply chickening out. On her birthday, she didn’t go to school and she almost ditched meeting the parents of her fiancé because of so much shame and regret.
Lagi ko pa naman ding sinasabi sa mga kaibigan kong ikakasal- “Rest well and remember, you are the most woman girl on your wedding day.” I guess mahirap talagang isipin ito when pimples are covering your whole face. Don’t get me wrong because I think Belle has such a sweet spirit and I know that even if she has pimples, hindi naman yun ang mapapansin ng mga tao. But then I also know that it is important for a bride to do everything that she can to look good not only for her husband and guests, but more importantly for herself. It begins from the heart and so it is crucial for her to know that both spirit and flesh are beautifully working as one!
And how sweet naman of Marian, a rather glowing soon-to-be Mrs.Dingdong Dantes, to actually make time for Belle and talk to her about her feelings before the wedding. In the interview, Belle also admitted that she sometimes fails to finish the process required for renewed skin but then she realized that she can’t really do that now if she really wants to be the best looking bride she can ever be.
Buti na nga lang that with a few steps, simple and easy, Maxi-Peel is able to give new hope to Belle with their new campaign, “Bagong Ganda, Bagong Pag-asa.” Together with the brand and its ambassadress, Belle wants to surprise everyone with radiant and glowing skin like Marian’s on her wedding day.
Kaya naman talagang I will surely be praying for Belle’s desires! My hope is talagang ma-surprise tayo with a kind of skin that reflects her inner spirit and personality. She seems to be a very joyful person and I believe that diligently following the steps provided by Maxi-Peel can help her express more of that!
