In this workshop, I picked up some tips on how to take care of my skin and how important it is to have a daily skin care regime. Oh dear! I'm such a lazy person and because of my laziness, I can't really be bothered to religiously apply facial products on my face. I know the importance of it but it is just not urgent enough for me to do it. Guess it is time for me to do so!
Sumita, the speaker of the workshop, told us that since the age of 21, she had a routine skincare regime which she follows everyday. She's now 51 but she looks like she's just in her mid-forties - all thanks to her being diligent enough in taking care of her skin. It is not just the face that you should take care of, but your neck, your hands.etc. By doing so, we will look presentable in front of others. First impression counts!
CURES, a brand by Avancé represents a collection of skin care and body care products that directs its attention on skin conditions, not skin types. It focuses on treating the root cause of the skin condition while offering long-term results.

I'm glad that I attended this workshop! It has helped me to learn the importance of taking care of my skin from a young age instead of waiting till it's too late. Also, the tips that I have picked up are really useful. I hope you have also learnt something from this blog post!
