Guidance: it's the one thing we all needed growing up. Through those awkward teenage years, we—and perhaps even our parents—had constantly found ourselves searching for advice that was clear, concise, and comprehensive. While young adults nowadays have the Internet by their side, it wouldn't be too far off to say that access to so much information can also be a disadvantage.
SKINCELL clinic founder, Dr Clarissa V. Cellona, asked, “Sure, everything is available on the internet. But are the parents and kids getting the right information. . . or are they getting disinformation in return?”
As a mother and member of the Philippine Dermatological Society, Dr Cellona is an advocate for proper information and education. She's a graduate of the prestigious INTARMED program at the University of the Philippines and has also studied under the mentorship of Dr. Howard Maibach at the University of California San Fransisco. She's also guided some of the countries brightest luminaries—Jhoanna Lhuillier, Kaye Tinga, and Crickette Tantoco to name a few—through their own skincare journey.
Now, she's translating her expertise into a colourful and creative book that's meant to guide teenagers through some of the most confusing times in their life.
