The Best Facial Cleanser For Sensitive Skin, Dermatologist Formulated
Introducing our very first #DRTWLFACE finalist, Vivian Setiawati, @viviansetiawatii. Standing at 1.72m tall, our budding model has left a lasting impression on our judges during her webisodes. With skin as soft as our luxurious Le Lait™ Milk Cleanser, she’s one of our favorites! Here’s an exclusive interview with Vivian.
1. What is your beauty routine to keep yourself looking gorgeous and what do you do to stay in shape?
I strongly believe that a well-hydrated skin is the key to look gorgeous. This can be done by drinking 8 glasses of water daily and applying moisturizer and sunscreen to protect my skin for the daily hustle and bustle. However, to combat inner health, I maintain a rather strict diet plan: Time-restricted feeding (TRF) intermittent diet; it involves a set daily fasting period and a shortened eating window of 3-12 hours. The form that I am taking is to fast for 16 hours each day and eating my daily calories during the remaining 8 hours. Lastly, I work out at least 3 times a week to keep myself fit.
2. What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty is a certainly a gift and it comes to us in different ways. Some are endowed with beautiful skin, eyes, and others with lovely personalities and talents.
3. Share with us 3 essentials in your closet (can be anything from fashion-beauty-lifestyle)
Given a plethora of products that I own, I would firstly require a sunscreen. Sunscreen is my essential because it protects my skin from daily intake of harmful UV Rays. It is especially important for people like me who loves to venture outdoors. Furthermore, some sunscreen can also repair and brighten our skin. Dr.TWL SunProtector™ is one of the sunscreen that I would recommend.
Secondly, Blusher is my essential for me to always be camera-ready. It adds more color to my face just like adding lavender to a rose bouquet. Blushers instantly add depth to one’s appearance.
Lastly, and most importantly- lipsticks! I have countless lipsticks in my drawers and each of them speak my mood of the day.
4. What do you hope to gain/achieve in the contest?
Through the contest, I hope to improve and learn how to present myself better. I hope to gain more experience in modeling and make more friends who share the same passion as I do. I hope to collaborate with Dr.TWL as part of my journey in modeling.
5. How do you define success and how do you measure up to your own definition?
I believe that everyone runs their own race and there is simply no need for comparison with others. As such, the definition of success is very much subjective. Success to me simply means that I meet the objectives that I set for myself. That would be the self-satisfaction that I adore.
6. What makes you a butterfly beauty?
We often delight in the beauty of butterflies. Yet we rarely admit the changes and hard work it has gone through to attain that beauty. As such, butterfly beauty aptly describes me.
7. What are your 3 favourite products in the 7-Day Recovery Kit?
Firstly, I’ll choose Hyaluronic Acid (In-House Formula) to hydrate my skin all day long.
Secondly, Vita C Gold™ Serum as it revitalized dull skin with anti-aging properties.
Lastly, Radiance Fluide™ Hydrating Emulsion to brighten my skin in leaving a radiant glow on my skin without the need of makeup.
Introducing the first basic step that you’d have to take- Le Lait™ Cleansing Milk. This is an essential step not to be missed, to ensure your skin fully absorbs all the subsequent applications. After a long day with a full face of makeup, this is your go-to product. It removes makeup entirely by effectively dissolving the makeup while retaining the moisture in your skin.
This also includes eyes and lips. Le Lait™ Cleansing Milk comes in handy especially in this era which uses waterproof makeup such as waterproof mascara. Unlike commercial makeup removers, Le Lait™ Cleansing Milk can easily help remove the stubborn makeup. The best part is it feels really gentle on your skin!
We are talking about the delicate skin around the eye area, dermatologist- tested oil & water emulsion serves best in dissolving these waterproof makeup.
Dr TWL Dermaceuticals has developed an outstanding trademark bioactive ingredient known as Larecea™. This botanical extract is created by mixing Brassica oleracea (cruciferous plant species) and a special formula of amino acids.
Being a powerful antioxidant, Larecea™ expedite, but not limited to, the formation of collagen as well as skin regeneration thus reversing aging signs. Le Lait™ Cleansing Milk is dermatologically formulated for allergic skin through an emulsified combination of water and oil particles.
This is highly recommended for consumers with eczema, sensitive skin, allergy prone dry skin types, post-laser treatments and for mature skin types.
According to Dr. Teo Wan Lin, an accredited dermatologist at TWL Specialist Skin and Laser Centre, “As eczema can be triggered by topical applications such as makeup, there needs to be special care when introducing any products that can aggravate eczema.”
Be sure to use a mild cleanser and care for your delicate skin by applying a fingertip- sized amount to the whole face to dissolve your makeup.
Apart from the very own Larecea™ extract, Camphor is also incorporated into this cleanser. Camphor originates from Japan, Vietnam and China.
Ultimately, this element calms and soothes the skin. It aims to relieves skin itching and irritation and also alleviates pain in worst case scenarios. This is a useful ingredient to control your inflammation and itching when your eczema flares up.
Purified Deep Sea Water
Saline is a vital component for stabilizing our skin. Sea water contains salts and minerals that helps to heal our skin condition making it look healthy and also hydrate our skin.
Furthermore, sea water can help to close open pores, soak up excess oil, enhance skin barrier function and most importantly exfoliates dead skin cells. Just a beauty tip: Dab salt water to your acne and let it dry, your acne should gradually clear up.
Everyone wants to look their best, but are you doing what it takes to preserve your youthful- looking skin? The makeup industry is earning millions and millions from consumers who are all joining in the bandwagon of slapping on full face makeup. We wear makeup for various reasons- to follow the trend, to look good and even to conceal our flaws and breakouts.
Hold your horses, why resort to temporal correctors to cover up your acne which may worsen your breakout, Furthermore, if you are oblivious, your skin may actually be allergic to certain ingredients. What you see, may not be what you get.
Save your skin, by visiting a dermatologist if you have a persistent acne condition but don’t make it worse by using a harsh cleanser which will simply dry out your skin, making it sensitive and irritated. By using a gentle dermatologist-recommended cleanser which also functions as a makeup remover, Le Lait™ Cleansing Milk is a perfect companion to anyone seeking treatment for troubled skin.
Your natural skin can also be your very own makeup! Invest in a dermatologist certified products rather than temporal makeup coverage to steer away from breakouts or acnes, especially for sensitive skin or skin allergies. Well done! You have just unlocked 1/7 steps to being closer to maintaining a youthful and healthy skin.
