Mango,Spain's popular high street brand opened their third megastore, 1st in Visayas and Mindanao, at Ground Floor Abreeza Mall Davao City last June 2016. To celebrate the launch, they have invited Tricia Gosingtian, one of the pioneers of lifestyle, fashion and travel bloggers in the Philippines. 

Seeing your inspiration in person is one of the most happiest thing a fan can experience.Last June, I have met one of my inspirations when it comes to blogging,Tricia Gosingtian. I have been following her since her college days, way before her Lookbook debut and her blogging career. She was very active in deviantart and multiply if I remember correctly and I admired her since. She was very humble and down to earth. I really like how she evolved from sophisticute to classic minimalist.

Tricia Gosingtian's Style Secrets

Style Secret #1 : Balance is key.
- long and short
- tight and loose
- feminine and masculine

Style Secret #2 : Less is more
- Only go for one statement accessory

Style Secret # 3 : Re consider your color choices
- try to go for more muted or pastel versions of your childhood brights.

Mustard instead of Yellow, Navy instead of Blue, Wine instead of Red and Olive instead of Green.
-If you must wear something overly saturated, pair them with neautrals such as black, gray, beige, or white.

Style Secret # 4 : Learn how to layer

dress + top
top + sweater
tops + outerwear

with layering, you don't need to buy new clothes every time, sometimes you just need to mix and match and a new outfit will be produced.

Style Secret # 5 : Tonal dressing works every time

- you don't need to sport the same kind of shade when wearing tonal outfits.


Style Secret # 6 : Find a uniform or a no fail formula for everyday dressing

Style Secret # 7 : Go for Pointed or no platform shoes

Style Secret # 8 : Little Black dresses are everything

Style Secret # 9 : Underneath it all
- invest in good underwear : shapewear, seamless lingerie and most especially nude ones.

Tip : Wear a nude bra when wearing white tops, not white bra.

Style Secret # 10 : Day to Night

- the best investments are items that can easily transition from day to night, ones that are versitile enough to be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occassion.

Whitening products are all over the supermarket nowadays, ranging from lotion to soap to facial creams. Aside from wide array of choices, the prices of these products are now affordable unlike before. One of the common ingredient of these whitening products is Kojic Acid.

What is Kojic Acid?

Kojic acid is a fine white powdery substance composed of tiny crystals. The formal discovery of kojic acid occurred in 1989, and since then, the substance has been used widely in skin care products due to its numerous benefits. The ingredient is obtained from mushrooms that are native to Japan and is a by-product of the fermentation process used to produce the alcoholic beverage sake.

Kojic acid is also an antibacterial agent, meaning that it interferes with the processes that bacteria cells must perform to thrive and reproduce. By disrupting these processes, kojic acid causes the death of bacteria. Some dermatologists recommend the use of mild concentrations of kojic acid for addressing acne blemishes, which are often caused by bacterial infections in the pores. 

One of my favorite local brands, My Skin Origins released a new beauty soap, the Organic Kojic Plus Beauty Bar. Unlike their other beauty bars which can only be purchased at their store located at Door 2, #93 Jacinto Street, Davao City, Kojic Plus is available at Gaisano Grand Supermarkets ( Davao Ilustre, Panabo City, Tagum City, Digos City ad Kidapawan City ).

Benefits of using products with Kojic Acid

- reduces freckles
- reduces melasma
- prevents signs of aging
- may reduce acne
- may reduce acne scars

Aside from Kojic Acid, it also contains Coconut oil, High Grade Vitamin C and Glutathione.

Coconut oil gives the skin a healthy smooth and even tone. It is able to penetrate on your skin on a deeper level because of its saturated fats that helps skin stay moisturized, the fat prevents moisture loss through the skin's pores.
While Vitamin C maintains healthy skin by creating and promoting expansion of collagen as well as the creation of ligaments and scar tissue. Also, it appears to slow down aging proccess by keeping wrinkles,dryness and fine lines at bay.

Whereas Glutathione is typically used for skin whitening. Glutathione is an antioxidant made from glycine, glutamic acid and cysteine.It works to clear the body of free radicals and toxins that can lead to serious skin problems like sun spots, melasma and hyperpigmentation.Also it has beneficial effects for women who have acne but it won't help hormone related acne since Glutathione does not affect hormone levels in the body.

For only P68, you get to have a beauty bar that can whiten your skin, reduce skin blemishes, nourish your skin and Paraben free and Organic! It's my current favorite as of the moment so grab one and start your My Skin Journey.

Don't forget to refrain from sun exposure since your skin is peeling and also don't forget to moisturize after to prevent skin dryness!
