JUST when we thought the seven-days-to-gorgeous-skin claim was the greatest performance breakthrough ever, two direct-selling cosmetic companies have come up with even faster promises to leap-frog the competition.

If you are the impatient sort who has a big event in less than a week and you want yourself to be the main attraction, you may want to check these out.

Those who have wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin but but don’t want to jump in for a facelift just yet, may want to try Nekara Anti Wrinkle Cream (P1,100) from Fuller Life Direct Selling.

It utilizes the revolutionary Nano Active Complex to effectively fight wrinkles and deliver visible results in as fast as six hours. It not only repairs existing wrinkles but prevents new ones from forming.

The Nano active complex contains a blend of three different peptides that iron out wrinkles, inhibit muscle action to prevent new expression lines from forming, and promote cell adhesion to make skin firmer.

Firmer skin shrinks the double chin and contours the cheeks and jaw line, which are especially caused by sagging skin due to elasticity loss not fat.

Nekara also contains Hyaluronic acid, a popular ingredient in successful injectable fillers that can hold up to a hundred times its weight in moisture, which is about the difference between a raisin and a grape.

These Hyaluronic Filling Spheres create the rapid hydration and smoothening of fine lines and wrinkles for improved younger looking skin in a matter of hours.

The reasonable price tag and the nongreasy texture are a major plus.

Acne

These little buggers flare up especially when you have a big event coming up and multiply as the big day draws near.

Age will not exempt you as adult acne afflicts those even in their 30s up to their 50s due to stress that results in excessive oil production and dead-skin accumulation, the perfect breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria.

Mary Kay System for Acne Prone Skin requires only three quick and easy steps which promise dramatic improvement after only three days of the twice daily program. It is suitable for sensitive skin but the two-percent salicylic acid makes it a no-no for pregnant women.

First, wash your face with the Clarifying Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin (P850), a clear, lightweight residue-free formula that converts to a light foam and removes excess oil and dirt and prevents dead skin cells from accumulating on the pores.

Then use the Pore Purifying Serum for Acne Prone Skin (P1,100). This silky serum is the star product which controls oil production that may result in pimples. It also absorbs quickly, making skin feel like velvet.

It reduces shine and make pores look smaller. It is a perfect foundation primer for the very oily and acne-prone so that the foundation stays matte longer.

Lastly, use the Spot Solution for Acne Prone Skin (P750), which targets blemishes and helps reduce breakouts by gently exfoliating the skin. It leaves no residue and is quickly absorbed.

Big beauty savings

Belo Medical Group celebrates its 18th year by rolling back the price of its liposuction to what it was 18 years ago—P15,000 per area.

When I had mine in 2003, it was P25,000 per area.

To be clear, an entire body part can have several areas.

For instance when you say thighs the inner, outer and front of thighs are three different areas.

Belo is honest enough to say that the discounted price does not yet include the price of the binder garment, medication, laboratory, VAT and anaesthesia.
