Do you worry about your oily skin?

We are glad that a lot of soon to be brides have a lot of interesting beauty questions. Thank you for your warm response on our Fresh and Radiant bridal beauty tips questions. Most of the questions we got about skin care are about how to address oily skin.

We truly understand you, Every bride wants to achieve that natural glowing fresh skin on their wedding day. This article will help you understand your skin and how to manage it better.

Oily skin stems out from excessive sebum production by your sebaceous gland. But don’t you fret. Your oily skin has its benefits as well. Did you know that it helps maintain your skin’s natural moisture barriers and protects it from bacterial and fungal infections. The downside however excessive oil production clogs pores. These clogged pores cause the problem like acne, whiteheads and blackheads. For us to address it we must consider reasons why your glands are going haywire.

1. Hormones

Yep, most of the time the culprit are your hormones. Imbalances and changes in your hormonal activity can affect your oil glands production. Have you ever noticed to be more prone to oiliness every time you are due for your menstrual cycle.

Tip: Once you are familiar that hormones are the culprit during that time of the month change up your oil control beauty regimen. You can also ask help from your friendly dermatologist for proper medication.

2. Stress

When your body becomes stressed, It’s response will increase your Cortisol production in turn causes your skin to be oily. Stress also induce water loss inhibiting the ability of the skin to repair itself.

Tip: Take one day at a time we know that wedding preparation can be stressful and tedious but don’t let it take a toll on your body. Sharing with you Matthew 6:34 “Never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties.” and prayer also helps “Throw all your anxiety on [God], because he cares for you,” says 1 Peter 5:7

3. Improper regimen

Harsh products that are unsuitable for your skin dries it up and triggers excessive oil production. The oil production compensates for the lack of moisture on the surface of your skin.

Tip: Find a product that is mild and gentle on your skin.

4. Environment

Heat and humidity combination can set your oil glands into overdrive. Unfortunately our weather here in the Philippines naturally causes increased sebum production.

Tip: Use appropriate skin care products to cater you skin needs ( Tips on these will follow so stay tuned)

5. Hereditary

Your skin type maybe passed to you from your parents.

Tip: A good skin care regimen can help you in controlling oiliness

6. Medication

Are you taking medications for contraception and hormonal imbalance? yes, they do trigger oil production.

Tip: Don’t worry, Your skin will return to normal once you’re off medication.

7. Diet and Lifestyle

I’m sorry to inform you that sugary, greasy food maybe the culprit to your oily complexion.

But did you know that products like milk, butter and yes, cheese can also cause greasiness and clogged pores.

Tip: Change your eating habit to a clean and green diet. Your body will surely thank you for it. You’ll be feeling good inside and out.

I hope you were able to find out the culprit behind that greasiness. We wish nothing but your fresh and radiantly glowing skin on your big day. ❤️

Our gorgeous debutante Ms. Glezlie Ong. One of Chinatown’s pride and beauty. She won Ms. Chinatown 2014 Social media darling. Blessed with beauty and brains she surely grabbed the crowd’s attention. It is with pleasure to have done her dream look  on her big day and her pre debut shoot. Having done the wedding and debuts of her eldest sister’s wedding and 2 older sisters we have been blessed to have such loyal and happy clients.

For her pre debut photoshoot we did 4 looks for her. We started of with a natural look to naturally bring out her beauty and natural glow. Young and vibrant as she is we brought out her innate beauty with neutral tones of eye shadow and soft pink lips that matches her natural liptone.

On her 2nd look we used a pop of pink lips to match her floral wreath headpiece to bring out the femininity of this layout.

Her last lay out is more edgy highlighting more of her personality. We used a deep plum lipstick and straightened her hair for a more editorial feel.

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.” -Sophia Loren

I was ecstatic when Anna,our bride got in touched with us for her bridal make up. She is one of the prettiest faces in our batch which made me feel blessed that she gave her trust to us to do her bridal make up on her big day. Anna gave us her concern that she tends to become acidic when make up is applied on her. The application tends to darken or change in color. It has been her problem eversince. ( Acidity happens when there is a decrease in the skin’s pH. There is no exact etiology on how this happens or what causes this). As a make up artist we carefully mix and match the foundation 1-2 tones lighter than her skin tone so that when the acidity reacts we still  can achieve the natural,fresh and radiant glow that she wants for her day. As a make up artist it is very important for me that my bride is very confident on her look on her wedding day. As every bride glows on her big day Anna’s beauty radiates and reminds me of a Disney Princess. Happiness and love were beaming from Anna. Here’s the bridal make up look that our glam team made for Anna on her special day.
