Women, in my opinion, receive a lot more pressure compared to men. The pressure exists in various aspects of our lives - in how we look, how we perform at work, how we take care of our family and our household. It's always there, an invisible force silently bearing down on our heads. It can be exhausting. However, we are made of tougher stuff. Remember that quote about women being like tea bags? We don't know how strong we are until we're in hot water!
In the last few years when I've discovered just how capable I am of running my own life and pursuing my dreams. But these things...you don't learn them by winning. You learn them by falling flat on your face, failing not once but innumerable times. That's just how life is. You gotta get up and show up, even when if it's the last thing you feel like doing.
For me, the best way to deal with pressure is to fake it until I get it right. This is important in the industry I work in, where appearances matter so much - sometimes, too much! I have to look my best even when I don't feel like it because the world isn't going to stop for me. It's always going to be now or later when it doesn't matter anymore.
That's why I like the Physiogel #FreeInMySkin Movement. It encourages women to seek the freedom to control their own life, taking on the pressure to be perfect without being afraid to be vulnerable. Physiogel's new campaign and endorser was launched the other week in Makati Shangri-La. The face for the Free In My Skin Movement is none other than Patti Grandidge, who is one of the freshest, most sought-after models and TV hosts in the country.
Patti loves Physiogel because it's the perfect solution to her dry, itchy, and sensitive skin. Physiogel is actually the number-one most prescribed moisturizer by dermatologists since it's formulated specifically for sensitive skin. I've tried their best-sellers (here's a review of the Intensive Cream) before and I can attest to how gentle and hydrating they are! They're pretty good even though they're inexpensive. ^_^
Back to Patti. She shares, "With Physiogel, I became free from dry and sensitive skin – to get going, to get out there and just be who I really am. So, now I truly believe in the power of having good skin. It gave me the power to feel empowered, to feel free. I became free in my skin. And this is why I have been rallying for this movement to reach out to so many women out there."
Watch Patti's story here!
That's a great message, don't you think? I definitely agree that having good skin can make us feel more confident and ready to face the world. ^_^ I know this from experience. So, if you have troubled skin and just want to let it recover, try Physiogel products - they just might help you to be free in your skin!
Let me leave you a couple of pics from the event the other week. ;)
