beauty OFF Duty: jennifer dela cruz, wedding planner


“Growing up my mom has always taught me that cleaning and moisturizing the face on a daily basis is imperative to healthy and beautiful skin.  She is seventy now and she looks like she is still in her forties.  I guess she was right and I do hope I have her genes.  After highschool I went on a mission and experimented with a lot of brands
and the one that I’ve come to love and still use today is Estee Lauder.  When I was younger and before I started my daily cleaning regiment, my skin – prior to using any product – was terrible.  It was oily, full of blackheads, and I had very large pores.  Having some kind of cleaning regiment has helped it tremendously although lately, since having children, my routine has been all over the place to say the least.

Before cleaning my face, I use babywipes to wipe off my makeup.  Part of it is just my laziness but I do find it is so much more efficient to clean with it before using soap.  For my facial soap, I just use regular Clean and Clear facial wash.  The rest of my products are Estee Lauder. With a clean face I follow it with Perfectly Clean Fresh Balancing Lotion, then I use Advanced Night Repair Cream for my eyes.  My favourite product which is also one of my necessities-can’t-live-without is Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher since it has worked wonders on my skin.  Lastly, I apply DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Crème with SPF 15 as a moisturizing cream.

Also, when I remember, I try to exfoliate and alternate with a mud mask on a weekly basis, although lately it’s been monthly, if that.  I recently discovered Arbonne and have used their Sea Mud Face & Body Mask.  For exfoliation, I use Idealist Dual-Action Refinishing Treatment by Estee Lauder.”
