3-step skin care regimen

Skin caring products, or those that claim to be, have never been as ubiquitous and accessible as they are today. Beauty routines also come in several different forms, from 3-step, 5-step, 7-step, to 10-step, and more. 

Choices are good, but when you are offered too many options, it becomes much more difficult to find the one that works for you.

Beauty regimens that have numerous steps don’t often benefit women with busy lifestyles
“We are all tired of having a drawer full of mistakes,” says Rissa Mananquil-Trillo. “The biggest pain point of Filipinas today is finding a regimen that’s quick, easy, and visibly effective so she can actually commit to it.”

Mananquil-Trillo and her partner in beauty Jacqe Yuengtian-Gutierrez of the cult favorite skin caring makeup label Happy Skin recently launched Happy Skin Beauty that offers products for effortless skin care regimen in three easy steps.

“Happy Skin pioneered skin-caring makeup, so it was a natural transition for the brand to get into skin care through Happy Skin Beauty. After all, the first step to perfecting your makeup look is by having good skin,” explains Happy Skin co-founder Yuengtian-Gutierrez.

It took the homegrown cosmetics and, now, skin care brand three years to develop its full range of skin care that solves the top skin concerns of women—aging and oiliness—and features multitasking formulas, thus streamlining the regimen into three effortless and effective steps. 

The Anti-Aging Series, which Happy Skin founders say is sourced from Japan, offers rich hydration and skin renewal, without the heaviness. The line harnesses the power of Fission technology that helps condition skin and improves dullness, Chardonnay extract that uses the power of Alpha Hydroxy Acids to remove dead skin cells, and Umbrella Pine extract that protects skin by activating the Nrf2 compound naturally found in cells that generates powerful antioxidants.

To use Happy Skin Beauty’s Anti-Aging Series, start by washing your face with Hydrating Facial Wash, apply Time Reversing Serum, and finish the regimen using Regenerating Moisturizer.

For its Oil Control Series, the brand sourced its products from Korea.

Happy Skin Beauty’s Anti-Aging and Oil Control Series promise effortless and effective skin care in three steps.
“This entire series was made to be very light on the skin, so you get the hydration you need without the excess grease,” shares Yuengtian-Gutierrez. 

The Oil Control line comes with Salicylic Acid that helps shed off dead skin cells, Vitamin C that brightens skin, and Centella Asiatica extract that heals skin and promotes collagen production. 

Begin your oil-controlling routine with Skin Smoothening Gel Facial Wash, followed by Mattifying Ampoule, and finished off with Oil Controlling Moisturizer. 

The Happy Skin Beauty Anti-Aging and Oil Control Series are now available at Happy Skin stores, select counters,,, and
