We’ve all got goals when it comes to our skin. Whether you want to avoid breakouts, fight irritation, or keep it blemish-free, we all have unique skincare needs — and managing them can be pretty complicated. With a myriad of trendy skincare products hitting the shelves and run-off-the-mill skincare hacks from Dr. Internet, it’s not always easy to figure out what really works and what doesn’t.

The best thing you can do? Go straight to the experts. In celebration of National Healthy Skin Month, Physiogel invited board-certified dermatologist Dr. Coreen Sampedro during its SIS Session on FB Live last November 20, helping us demystify skincare with professional advice.

Armed with experience and backed by science, Dr. Coreen set the record straight on typical beauty and skincare myths to better guide us in our routines. Here’s the truth about these myths:

Moisturizers can cause acne.  

False, but somewhat true. Moisturizing your skin is a must, but excessive application may cause acne. The extra product just sits on top of your face, which attracts dirt and bacteria. To help avoid breakouts when moisturizing, Dr. Coreen recommends putting on a fast-absorbing product in just the right amount.   

Babies don’t need sun protection or moisturization.

False. Babies have super delicate skin that needs protection from UV rays. Babies, especially those 6 months and below, don’t need an elaborate skincare routine, so Dr. Coreen says the best thing that you can do is to use sun-protective methods, like avoiding direct sun exposure and dressing them in protective clothing. To keep their skin moisturized, she also recommends using mild, hydrating cleansers that’ll keep it smooth, soft, and safe from irritants.

Oily skin doesn’t need moisturizers.

False, but it depends. Dr. Coreen emphasized that just because the surface of your skin is oily doesn’t mean your skin cells are not dehydrated. This is what moisturizers address – they hydrate your skin cells, keeping them strong on the inside, and soft outside. The secret is picking a good moisturizer that works with your skin. Your best choice should be a light, fast-absorbing moisturizer without preservatives, fragrances, colorants, ceramides, and other nasties that might do your skin more harm than good!    

Guilty of believing in these misconceptions? Physiogel’s chit-chat with Dr. Coreen tells us that an effective skincare routine starts with knowing the difference between fact and fiction. With tried-and-true advice from experts, you’ll never go wrong in achieving the healthy skin you want! The same goes for picking products that can do the job for your skin type. Address your needs with expert-recommended products in your regimen, such as the Physiogel Daily Moisture Therapy range. The Dermo-Cleanser, Body Lotion, and Cream are all powered by Biomimic Technology, a science that mimics and restores lipids naturally found in skin to keep it soft but strong. This way, you can always take care of your skin’s health this National Healthy Skin Month and beyond!

Loved discovering the truth about skincare with Dr. Coreen? Stay tuned for more enlightening and empowering SIS Sessions on Physiogel’s Facebook Page!

Xiaomi Philippines Releases the "Lite Me Up” Online Series with Celebrity Gabbi Garcia

Saturday, November 27, 2021

Heart Evangelista-Escudero is a name that bears various titles—celebrity, fashion maven, wife, painter. But one of the most resounding title that is attached to her—and one that has inspired many—is being a dog lover. 

A known advocate for animal rights and a speaker on behalf of animals in the country, Heart has always been vocal about being a responsible pet owner. One of her advocacies that she has been most passionate about is her love for Aspins (asong Pinoy). She voiced out the noticeable discrimination against Aspins and has sought to champion their welfare (and other animals as well) by partnering with the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to lobby for the amendment of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) in 2013, which increased penalties for animal offenders. Heart explains that she wants more people to recognize Aspins as beautiful, loving and loyal dogs and should be given the same care, love and respect as pure breeds.

If there’s one Aspin that’s well-known in the country, it would definitely be Panda. Seen on most of Heart’s posts, Panda is a constant companion whenever possible. “I'm always with Panda because she goes with me wherever I go even if I'm shooting or filming, except when I travel, especially since my husband's always away for work. It's nice that I have my fur buddies to keep me company,” says Heart.

With so much passion for her dogs, Heart cares for them with “Three Times the Love”. Seen as a holistic approach to canine health that goes beyond just token care, she personally oversees their health to make sure they get only the best. She shares, “I show my love for them by making sure that they’re healthy by giving them the right dog food or I even have their food cooked with boiled carrots and other really healthy food because I want them to have long lives with me. I love spoiling them and making sure they’re always comfortable so although some of my dogs sleep with me, I still put beds or mats in little corners of the house. I love giving them treats cause they love them!”. Heart adds, “I wish I can take them with me to a trip somewhere where they can run; I think that's always the best especially now because we're always just stuck at home.”

With an advocacy that has an abundance of love for our furry friends, Heart shares a reminder to existing fur parents or those who ponder over having one. “Having a dog is like taking care of a child as well; the responsibility of being a pet owner isn’t a joke. Apart from giving them love and their basic needs, we have to make sure that they get proper medical care just like how we do it for ourselves as humans,” she adds.

Complete Protection in One Tablet

As a responsible dog owner, Heart wants to help highlight the importance of dogs’ holistic health thru regular medication that protects your dogs from the inside and helps prevent unwanted diseases. To help ensure that her fur babies are in their best health, she only gives them supplements from a trusted brand that has dedicated goal to deliver quality medicine specifically designed for our dogs. 

Trusting only the best for her fur babies, Heart is the newest ambassador for Simparica Trio, the first monthly chewable tablet to protect your dog with three proven ingredients designed to protect dogs against heartworm disease, ticks & fleas, roundworms & hookworms. “I treat my dogs like my children, which is why I make sure to take preventive measures to keep them safe and healthy. What I love about Simparica Trio is that it provides comprehensive protection against deadly parasites such as intestinal worms, ticks and fleas and most especially heartworm. And another good thing is it comes in a yummy chewable tablet, and they only need to take it once a month! Imagine the protection and the convenience, right?!”, she excitedly shares.

Heart also added “I’m blessed to have them with me. Dogs can love you unconditionally and are so pure in this world. What we can give in return is their happiness, comfort, and well-being so they can stay with us for a long time.”  

Inquire at your local vet on how to avail Simparica Trio and give your dog the best care that they deserve. 

Simparica Trio comes in the following variants: 2.5 to 5 kg dogs, 5 to 10 kg dogs, 10 to 20 kg dogs, and 20 to 40 kg dogs, as prescribed by veterinarians.. Visit, follow @zoetispetcareph on Instagram, and get to know more about the brand and Zoetis Philippines on their official website

An Impawfect World Made Pawfect: New Normal Care Tips For Your Dog

Sunday, November 14, 2021

Uncertainties in this “new” daily life we live in cause anxiety and an abundance of worries. For some, having a “buddy” contributes greatly to one’s well-being and proves to be a great companion that reduces our stress while giving us comfort and even contentment.

While this may be a positive aspect during these times, one has to take time to consider all factors in being a pet owner. It’s best to evaluate if you’re fit to take in a fur baby in your home and one has to be knowledgeable of the responsibilities needed before you take the leap. Why? Because raising a pet is almost like raising a human being with needing to provide them with security, comfort, basic needs, and regular medical care.

Deciding whether to get a dog or not is one thing; being a responsible owner is a whole other level. Our dogs may relieve us of stress and anxiety, especially during these troubling times, but one must always keep in mind that they too need their owners to be responsible in giving them the utmost care they deserve.

5pm walks with my best pals, a new normal-formed habit to keep them healthy.

Based on a recent online survey from Rakuten Insight*, the Philippines has the highest rate of pet ownership in Asia at 67% with dogs occupying the majority of homes in the country. However, only around 20% of dog owners bring their dogs regularly to the vet for medication and check-ups; most bring them when they’re already sick or in need of immediate care.

Much like us, preventive measures are our safe bets in keeping our dogs healthy. Regular visits to their respective veterinarians not only promote responsible practice as a dog owner but also help keep them in good health and may aid in detecting possible risks that may affect their health.

Even with the limited time outside to take them for walks, the risk of our beloved dogs getting sick is a worry that most owners stress about. Minimal health care is a big factor that can impede on our dog’s health which may lead them to suffer from preventable diseases or conditions including three major health issues: heartworm disease, ticks & fleas, and roundworms & hookworms.

To minimize the chances of dogs getting infected, a highly efficient medication is a must to give them complete protection against silent threats. Distributed by Zoetis, Simparica Trio, the first monthly, chewable and yummy supplement contains three proven ingredients designed to defend your fur babies from these unseen health risks. This preventative supplement is an FDA-approved prescription product that is deemed safe for puppies as young as 8 weeks old (weighing at least 2.8 lbs) and guarantees 100% satisfaction that will keep your worries at bay.

Meet Oreo and Keeks! Two different dogs with huge age gap, different weight, and have different healthcare needs too! 

As per Dr. Sherlyn Subiaga – De Lima, a clinic owner, practicing veterinarian and technical consultant for small animal practice, part of being a responsible dog owner is making sure that they get the best medical care there is for our pets. 

“As dog owners, we try to be as responsible as best as we can by making sure that they’re well taken care of. However, some possible diseases may be unavoidable, and this is where preventive measures apply. Even with their empathy, it’s a literal fact that dogs can’t communicate with us directly on what they’re feeling. We notice if they’re uncomfortable and behaving unusually but to be able to pinpoint the exact cause of their discomfort is quite difficult. The last thing we want to happen is for us to lose them without a fight, that is why regular check-ups with their veterinarian and compliance to treatment help ensure that they are always at their best so they can continue living happily with their fur parents,” shared the trusted vet.

It may be essential for dog owners to remember three crucial steps for their fur babies’ health: Detect, Disinfect and Protect.

  • Detect: When dogs are in good health, it’s easy to identify if they behave differently. Monitor them and bring them to the vet to check for signs of possible disease. Immediate response helps lessen the risk of further sickness for our pets. 

  • Disinfect: Disinfection not only points to pet grooming but also for their internal health. Diseases like worms, ticks, and fleas can be prevented thru regular medication. Left untreated, these health issues may pose as a greater threat to their health in the long run. 

  • Protect: Even after being cured. It’s always best to keep them protected for any future health risks. Continue giving them nutritional food, fresh water, clean space to sleep, and regular vitamins and additional medication to keep them healthy for a longer time in your company.

Always bear in mind that having a dog is a lifetime commitment. Trust in a brand that understands that canine preventative health is a must for every dog owner. Consult your veterinarian for more information and ask for guidance on the proper use of Simparica Trio so we can give back the love they unconditionally give us.
