A recent visit to Korea got me thinking, why are the ladies so fair? They are also exposed to UV rays and skin will produce a tan as a result! They must have taken great efforts to remain fair (Like religiously apply sunblock & using whitening products!). Almost everyday, we are being exposed to high emission of UV rays, it is so difficult to remain fair! We have to spam on sunblock and also carry an umbrella everywhere we go! Hahaha!~
I’m considered fair as i will tend to avoid spending long hours in the sun (as i hate to sweat!). Moreover, i will use a lot of sunblock in the past! But due to a recent episode of bad breakout, i’m using little products as possible on my skin so that it won’t clog easily. This includes ditching my sunblock for the time being. However, i’m still very vain and wish to remain fair! Hence, i’m taking supplements to help me regain fair, luminous skin (on top of the oral sunblock which i’ve recently started taking)!!

A pack of Ceramides Skin Supplement costs $89, containing 30 vegetarian capsules for a month’s usage. Price wise, it is on the higher side but it would say that it is worth the purchase! Since it is in capsule form, this makes consumption fuss-free as it is easier to swallow. There’s no after taste but do take it after meal (especially if you have a weak gastric).
Two weeks since i have incorporated it as part of my supplement intake, one obvious result is that my skin turned less sensitive and less tight (This means improved hydration). As i have acne prone skin, products that i am using are more drying which results in tight and sensitive skin. Glad that the added supplement contributes to such an improvement. My colleague has also mentioned that my skin tone seems brighter and more even. There’s no much visible difference on whitening (As in overall skintone) but i felt that my post acne marks aren’t as brown as before. I also did a chemical peel last week and i observed that my new skin seems less red and sensitive as compared previously (Really thankful for that!). Would certainly replenish this supplement once i have finished this bottle! 🙂
Ceramiracle Ceramides Skin Supplement is available at Guardian pharmacies this month. It retails at S$89.00/bottle of 30 capsules.
