Skincare products by a Filipina for a Filipina
I used to be one of those young adults who would watch beauty and skincare videos one after another, hoping I would someday get plump glass skin and age gracefully. However, since beauty vlogging wasn’t as big as it is now, international YouTubers used products that were either unavailable here in the Philippines or not suited for the Filipina skin.
Thankfully, fellow Filipino women put their hair up in a bun and got to work. Rizza Lana, founder of proudly Filipino skincare brand Lana PH, didn’t simply make products for Filipino’s needs. She went out of her way and established a brand that’s “mindful of you and momma earth.”
And in a time where calls to #SupportLocal and #SaveMotherEarth are louder than ever, Lana’s skincare line is irresistible. The products are locally made, cruelty-free, all-natural, and mindfully manufactured and packaged.
If you want to redefine your skincare routine and make it tailor-fit to your needs (and beliefs), here are products you can put on your self-care shelf.
Lana PH Age-Defying Face & Body Soap
One of the soap’s main ingredients is bearberry extract, which exudes a calming floral, smooth, and creamy scent. It also helps remove dead skin cells, moisturize skin, and blur fine lines without harming the skin. Thanks to its all-natural ingredients, it’s friendly for all skin types.
When you jump in the shower in the morning or after a long day, a motivational quote stamped on the soap would liven up your spirit.
Lana PH DNA Repair Elixir
Although most of us are working from home, this does not spare us from stressors that could damage the skin. Especially true for those hustling in front of the screen all day or those with work desks stationed near the window, the UV could damage your skin without you noticing.
Like a true elixir, this little contains a mix of vitamin B3, Centella asiatica extract, and collagen. With just two drops on the skin, this could fight breakouts, hydrate, and give life to dry and dull skin without the heavy, sticky feeling.
Lana PH 100% Pure Argan Oil
Skin-care products are often focused on the face alone. But the rest of the skin needs some TLC, too!
If you need something that works well on the face and the rest of the body, check out Lana’s 100 percent Pure Argan Oil. The all-natural moisturizer is high in vitamin E, helping address skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and acne problems.
To achieve soft and supple skin, apply two drops on the face and neck and gently massage with the fingers or a jade roller if you’re feeling fancy. If there’s any excess left on your hand, massage it onto your fingers, glide it on your hair, or apply on dry patches.
Lana PH Soothe & Hydrate Gentle Cleanser
It’s safe to say that we’ve all been there: After using a harsh cleanser, the skin feels uncomfortably tight as it is stripped off of its natural oils.
Lana comes to the rescue with its Soothe & Hydrate Gentle Cleanser. The fragrance- and soap-free cleanser keeps up with its promise of thoroughly cleansing and gently exfoliating without taking away the skin’s natural moisture, thanks to its all-natural products infused with oat protein, vitamins B3 and E, and urea.
Lana PH Lash and Brow Growth Serum
We miss the days we can glam up and show off our makeup skills. Now that we’re all masked up, we have to take our eye makeup artistry up a notch—since eyes are pretty much all other people see.
If you’re not blessed with luscious brows and long charming lashes, add to your cart Lana’s Lash and Brow Growth Serum.
Pamper the eye area with the mild formulation of water, castor oil, aloe vera extract, and glycerine. With consistent use, you won’t be needing heavy false lashes-mascara combo.
