Skin care is never enough. No matter what brand you buy or no matter how expensive your skin care regimen is, if you don't stay hydrated inside and out you will not have the skin that you want. 

And that is why these #WaterfulSkincare and #PurifiedByNature brands have come together to give us simple tips and tricks on achieving beautiful skin with water.


First and probably the most obvious step to getting hydrated, you need to drink enough water. The right amount of water to drink for optimal hydration is eight glasses of water/ 2 liters/ or about two 500mL SIP bottles. Not only does this make your skin beautiful but it also promotes better health. We all want to stay fit and sexy so drinking more water everyday can also improve metabolism. 

SIP Purified Water is the first volcanic purified water in the Philippines, and our rigorous six-steps purification process leaves our water tasting crisp and clean:

Step 1: Volcanic Filter – Our sustainable water source comes from an underground aquifer that’s thousands of feet deep and purified naturally by the layers of volcanic rock from the precipitation in Mount Makiling. 

Step 2: Sand Filter – Our sand filter tanks in our water treatment station filters out the deep well impurities. 

Step 3: Activated Carbon Filter – This filter wipes out unpleasant odor and unwanted taste. 

Step 4: Reverse Osmosis – Dirt and bacteria are eliminated in this process.

Step 5: Ultraviolet Treatment – Harmful microbes and germs are killed again with UV radiation. 

Step 6: Ozonation – FDA approved ozonation blasts away other toxins. 

SIP is available at SM Hypermart,   7-11, Vikings, Four Seasons, NIU, Fishermall, Hi-Top, Landmark, Family Mart,  Nord's Breadhub,  Super 8, Unitop, Waltermart, Lawson's, Circle K,  Alfamart,  Addy's Market,  Budget Mart, Southstar drug. 

SRP is P9, P11, and P20 for 350mL 500mL and 1L bottles.


Now that we’ve talked about how to stay hydrated inside, let’s talk about skincare! We all know that the mortal sin every make up user can commit would be sleeping with their make up on. Not only is it unhygienic but it can also clog your pores and cause acne breakouts. Plus, it would stain your bed sheets and pillow. This is why we encourage everyone to use CREER Cleansing Water to remove makeup.

You might think that these are just ordinary cleansing waters but they’re not! These cleansing waters are actually formulated with Spa Water from the Shimane Prefecture in Japan — this place is home to Japanese women with the most beautiful skin according to a survey conducted in Japan. We all know how modern and innovative Japan is when it comes to products, and these cleansing waters are no exception! These are multifunctional products that can cleanse, tone, mildy exfoliate and moisturize the skin. So you don’t need to use a facial wash before or after using Creer. They are formulated in such a way that you don’t even need to wash it off after using. 

The Cleansing Water or the blue variant is ideal for light makeup while the Cleansing Water Oil In or the orange variant is perfect for heavy or waterproof makeupEach 330mL bottle is priced at P545.00 each. 


You may all think that cleansing, toning and moisturizing are the only steps you need to get clear, smooth skin. But did you know that you also need to exfoliate? The upper layer of our skin is made up of dead skin cells that are naturally replaced every 2 weeks but as we age, this process slows down so we need to help our skin exfoliate! When you hear the word exfoliation you probably think “rough, harsh and drying”. Cure Natural Aqua Gel gently exfoliates your skin by getting rid of dead skin cells, excess dirt and oil that regular cleansing can’t remove. By doing this, you are giving way to a fresher, healthier and newer layer of skin. This product is so popular that 1 bottle is sold every 7.5 seconds in Japan! It was even included in the media kit given to Hollywood celebrities at the Academy Awards before! That’s how good this product is! 
Ms. Cheryl gave us a demo on how to use Cure

Directions of use: one pump per section of my face. One pump for the forehead and one for each cheek. Use this after cleansing and after drying your skin. Just gently massage the gel onto your skin and wait for solid clumps to form. These are dead skin cells, dirt and oil! Recommended use is twice a week. You can also use Cure on different areas of your body such as your elbows, knees, armpits, buttocks or cuticles.
Cure is priced at P1500 per 250g bottle. It’s available in Beauty Bar stores and selected SM Department Stores, Watson’s and Rustan’s Department Stores.

After removing your makeup and exfoliating, it’s now time to prep your skin for your serum or moisturizer. You can do this after removing all your makeup or after getting out of the shower to cleanse off tap or hard water, which has many impurities. So if your skin is sensitive, it may not be good for you. That’s why we recommend spraying on purified water all over after washing your face or showering. Just buy a bottle of SIP and place it in a reusable container instead of buying those exorbitantly priced water packaged in aerosols spray cans. Not only are you doing your skin a favor but you are also helping the environment by not using aerosol and reusing and reducing waste. It’s just as good as any water mist in fancy packaging. You can use this to refresh yourself after a hot day by popping it in the fridge and just drink the rest of the leftover water.

If you feel like your skin needs a little boost you can add other ingredients such as Rose Water or Rice water by steeping rose petals or rice.


Now that your skin is prepped for skin care, it’s ready for Cure Natural Moisturizing gel. There are two kinds of people, one who has the time and patience to do the so-called ten-step skin care routine and the other who just slaps on moisturizer and hops into bed. If you are the latter then this product is for you. It is a gel type product and when you apply it on your skin you would see droplets form when your skin is moisturized and if your skin is dry, no droplets will form as it will fully absorb the product. This is because it will only absorb what your skin needs. You can also feel a thin film forming on top of your skin. This locks in the moisture so it won’t just evaporate.

It’s available in selected SM Department stores, Watson’s and Rustan’s Department Stores at P1500 per 100g tube


Now, on to the last tip and the most interesting one yet. DIY face masks using rice paper –– the ones used for Vietnamese spring rolls. People are crazy about hydrogel masks but they’re quite expensive at about P200+ per sheet so we researched for cheaper alternatives and found this instead.


Two teabags, hot water (using SIP) and 1 sheet Vietnamese rice paper. We picked green tea as our active ingredient because it has the most antioxidants, which is good for ageing and getting rid of dull skin.

First, steep two green tea bags in hot water for a while until it turns green and the reason why we are using two is because you and want to get all those juice out from those tea leaves. After it cools down, pour that over your Vietnamese rice paper and after a minute it's going to sip all the liquid and turn soft. The texture is almost exactly like hydrogel!

Leave it on your skin for about 15 minutes and reveal smooth glass skin after removing it. It’s cheaper than a packaged hydrogel mask because an entire set of rice paper is only P100 and there are a lot of cheap tea brands out there. Not only do the teabags give you the ingredients for your face mask but you can pop these two teabags into the refrigerator and place it on your eye bags to rid of puffiness and dark circles!

Green tea is an allergen so you have to make sure that you're not allergic to it. You can also try using peppermint tea for that tingling or cooling sensation on the skin. And if you’re adventurous, you can try out other active ingredients! 

If you find all of this too tedious, there’s always Hadabisei Face Masks which is also under Beauty Box Corp. and available at Beauty Bar stores. 

Cure Natural Aqua Gel and Creer Cleansing Water is under Beautybox Corp., the company that brought famous Japanese brands such as K-Palette, Cure, Kracie, Baby Foot and Himecoto to the Philippines. Synergy Pacific is the manufacturers of SIP purified water, a sister company of Vikings group.
