A skincare regimen need not be complicated to be effective. Just ask Happy Skin! The local mega-brand just launched 6 new skincare products in time for the summer season—each one with its rightful place in a 3-step routine. A welcome change from the 10-step monster routines of today, if you’re a lazy girl!
The Happy Skin skincare routines feature a trifecta of essentials: cleanser, serum, and moisturizer. Familiar formulas, to be sure—in fact, you probably have some similar things in your routine already. But what sets these products apart is that they’re made for Filipina skin. Each formula is powered by natural extracts that are gentle on the face, potent on problem areas, and excellent for overall skin-health. They leave you with happy skin and a hassle-free skincare habit.

THE HAPPY SKIN OIL CONTROL SERIES

Perfect for oily or combination skin
Infused with salicylic acid, Vitamin C, and centella asiatica, this collection is designed to balance your natural oil production and fade blemishes. As a result, it helps prevent acne and scarring without completely drying out your skin. Follow the routine below!
STEP 1: Cleanse your face with the Skin Smoothening Gel Facial Wash (P499). Lather it up and gently massage it over your skin. Afterwards, rinse with water and pat your face dry.

STEP 2: Balance and nourish your skin with the Mattifying Ampoule (P999). Dot small amounts of serum across your face, then lightly pat it in. Continue until the product has fully absorbed.

STEP 3: To creative a protective seal over your face, use the Oil-Controlling Moisturizer (P899). Spread the moisturizer all over your face and neck using soft, upward strokes.

THE HAPPY SKIN ANTI-AGING SERIES

Perfect for dry and mature skin
The MVPs of this collection are umbrella pine and citrus jabara, as well as the natural AHAs found in chardonnay extract. These ingredients help renew dull skin, lock in moisture, and protect the skin barrier against free radicals. Follow the routine below!
STEP 1: Cleanse your face with the Hydrating Facial Wash (P599). Just like in the first routine, dispense an appropriate amount of product, lather it up, and massage it all over your face. Rinse thoroughly and pat your skin dry.

STEP 2: Give your skin an extra boost of hydration with the Time Reversing Serum (P999). Dot the serum over your forehead, cheeks, and chin. Then, use your fingers to pat-pat-pat your skin until the product fully absorbs.

STEP 3: End with a final layer of moisture using the Regenerating Moisturizer (P999). Spread it all over your face and neck and use upward strokes to help it sink in.

See? Easy as 1-2-3! The neat thing is that you can opt to expand and customize these 3-step routines by adding in your skincare faves. But if all you want is a few great basics, this makes for a perfect start.
