Real Beauty Basics | A Dove Beauty Blog

I admit, I still pop my pimples and pick on my whiteheads and blackheads when no one is looking. It's a bad habit and a major no-no. But here I am baring my heart out to you.

When I received a heads up on the new website/blog of Dove Philippines, I wandered on to a page that tackled my worst enemies, Comedones! Yup, comedones are those icky disgusting blackheads and whiteheads that clog up my pores.

As a beauty blogger who is always reading beauty articles and beauty blogs, I can confidently say that I know my way around comedones... especially that I have too many! Ewww!!

But for those who are still unsure about what they are or if they have it, head on over to the Real Beauty Basics | A Dove and on their article on Blackheads and Whiteheads.

Black or White: What's the Difference

What I like about the article is that it tells you how to spot the difference between whiteheads from blackheads, how it came to be, how to treat it and prevent it. It's very concise and it has a lot of helpful tips and tricks. It's not your usual beauty blog like yours truly but it does give a lot of beauty knowledge. I love that it is also not so hardsell on their products.

So, taking on the tips I read on the Dove Real Beauty Basics, I am trying my darnest best not to get rid of my blackies and whities on my own. Oh! What a challenge! Le sigh...

  1. This reminded me of Dove's real beauty campaign. I remember this one ad wherein a model is given a makeover and then her photo was manipulated. Then it was posted in a bill board. After that, a text appeared: "No wonder our perception of beauty is distorted..."

    I'm glad how Dove has been encouraging women to take care of their skin the natural way and just accept their imperfections; because these imperfections are what make us special and really beautiful. Dove has one of the best campaigns ever. Thanks for sharing this, Shen. Will definitely check out their website! :)

  2. Hi Ms. Shen,

    Your honesty about your Comedones is really funny:)

     I've seen the dove website and it's really informative. I urge mother's like me to find the resolution about their  beauty problems in the said website.

  3. Oh, this website looks interesting!  Must check this out! :)
