For local actress and TV host, Priscelia Chan, her journey of self-discovery began in 2017 as she went through a battle not just with an unexpected health condition but also with herself.
According to Priscelia, there was a period when she was dealing with a lot of stress resulting from filming two emotionally draining roles, an imbalanced diet and grieving from a loss of a loved one. It was during this time that she noticed her facial skin started showing signs of eczema-prone skin.
Desperate for a solution, Priscelia consulted four dermatologists and three general practitioners. But while the physical discomfort was hard to bear, Priscelia said it was the frustration and helplessness that were difficult to cope with. Initially, she was afraid of losing her looks, husband and career but eventually, she realised what she was afraid of most was losing herself - her identity. However, with the constant encouragement and support from her husband and family, she was able to slowly overcome her doubts.
Eventually, Priscelia learned that what she needed was a balanced diet, finding suitable skincare products and an ample amount of rest. To help keep her skin stay hydrated, Priscelia started using QV Wash after her family recommended it to her.
Priscelia is thankful to have tried QV Wash and was relieved that it was suitable for her skin. She emphasises that protection for dry, sensitive or eczema-prone skins starts at the shower. QV Gentle Wash is a soap-free, pH balanced wash that contains glycerin and is free from colour and fragrance. Being soap-free, it is suitable for individuals with dry, sensitive or eczema-prone skin as it doesn’t strip away the skin’s natural oils that lead to dryness.
After experiencing the efficacy and effectiveness of QV Wash, she started using QV Cream. Her skin is now more hydrated, moisturised and relieved from itch caused by dryness. Priscelia prefers QV Cream because it isn’t greasy like other moisturisers which made her skin feel sticky and uncomfortable.
QV Cream is powered with 5 moisturising ingredients that help boost skin hydration by around 30% over 24 hours¹. QV Cream helps lock in moisture for a full day’s hydration, it also helps relieve flaking and itch caused by dry skin conditions. Its pH balanced and low-irritant formulation that is free from fragrance, colour, lanolin and propylene glycol, makes it very gentle and suitable for dry, sensitive or eczema-prone skin.
Priscelia admits that while this ordeal took a heavy toll on her emotionally, mentally and physically, she has learned to never doubt herself. Finally, to help keep her skin condition in check, Priscelia has changed her lifestyle and also maintains a good skincare regime with QV skincare products.
