Last April 22, 2015, the SkinWhite Captivate Council girls were given time to talk and mingle with 20 girls from Barangay Tagalag, which is the 2nd poorest barangay in Valenzuela. They were able to interact and talk to the people who lived in the area and learn about one another’s lives. A Personality Development Seminar was given by singer KA Antonio. She also gave tips on how stay confident and love your unique qualities. She also highlighted the importance of good grooming and making yourself feel beautiful with the help of the SkinWhite Lotion, Soap, Deodorant, Cleanser, Creams, and Face Cream Powder. And to top it off, SkinWhite's Marketing and Brand Activation Group prepared goodie bags for all the girls to take home.
I remember when I was still in school, there were different outreach programs we can join in order to help the community. I’ve joined several but one that struck me the most was our outreach work wherein we brought in a manicurist to help demonstrate and teach the moms and women of the village how to do basic nail cleaning and polish. We brought supplies to give to them and everyone tried their hands on the process. It felt amazing knowing that we are not just giving these women supplies, but knowledge and livelihood.
I admit that other than those outreach projects and programs in school, I haven’t been heavily involved with charity work. So let me share with you my personal feelings and thoughts on giving back. We are often told to give back to others, strangers and help out those in need. That’s all good, don’t get me wrong. But I personally feel more strongly about giving back to our loved ones.
One of my main goals in life, ever since I could remember was to make my family proud. I have always known that there is a chance that I may not be able to give them the best of everything and I may not be able to support them financially, but that never hindered me from wanting to make them proud of who I am and who I’ve become. Just thinking about what my parents have sacrificed and have done for us makes me quite emotional. There were struggles, problems and arguments along the way but it’s so uplifting to know that they have taken care of us and that we are who we are because of how they nurtured us.
I knew that in order to give back and somehow let my family know how much they mean to me, I have think of them in every decision I make in my life. From my first job to all of my endeavors, to how I am as a mother, one of my goals is to make them proud. For them to see that I am succeeding in everything that I do and to know that all of their hard work made me who I am today. This is what I do to show they how much I appreciate them and how much I love them and in the process give back the love and support they have given me.
Having this mindset always puts me at ease in everything that I do. When I feel stressed, frustrated or even sad, knowing that my family is proud of me always brightens up even my darkest day.
Of course, giving a little TLC to our skin never hurts! Knowing that I take care of myself makes me feel more confident in whatever I’m doing. I know that I'm not just making my heart full, but also giving myself the much needed love and care I deserve.
One of SkinWhite products that makes me feel more beautiful like I can take on anything is SkinWhite Power Whitening Lotion as it instantly whitens the skin. Believe me, as much as I love my family, they’re alaskador! I remember they used to tease me because I was soooo dark when I was a kid as I loved playing outdoors. But knowing that SkinWhite Power Whitening Lotion has already has SPF to help battle UV rays and darkening, I know that I am protected.

And I’m sure you already know how much I love SkinWhite Power Whitening Facial Cleanser that also contains micro-exfoliating technology and Witch Hazel Extract to help banish acne and helps prevent dryness with its Vitanourish Formula. I love how it cleans my face thoroughly and removes all the dirt that my facial wash may have left behind. Knowing that I’ve cleaned my face with the SkinWhite Power Whitening Facial Cleanser, I’m assured that I will be blemish free! Thus, making me feel more confident in facing everyday’s challenges.
