There’s more than one way to be Flawless
(The Philippine Star) - December 2, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - We live in an age when teenagers have public meltdowns over the most baffling epiphanies — most recently, that social media is a tool for misrepresentation and it promotes unhealthy ideals of perfection to impressionable minds. This would sound familiar to those who grew up without the Internet. Replace “social media” with “magazines” or “television” and we’ve got ourselves a debate as old as time. Perfection has been aspirational since the days of kings — today, it’s no different. Everybody wants to be perfect, everybody wants to rule the world.

Snapseed is to Instagram as beauty products and dermatologists are to real life. They share a common goal, to make the end product look near-perfect — the best version of itself. The latter offers a more permanent solution and renders the former useless. How would you like to post your selfie, no-filter style? That’s the ideal.

Aesthetic beauty clinic Flawless is a means to this end. It has helped people achieve their beauty goals — no blur, no liquify, no filter — through treatments and products attributed to cleanliness, quality and care.

Flawless is the only aesthetic clinic that is guaranteed hygienic, with strict sanitary protocols that adhere to World Health Organization standards. The skin professionals that administer the treatments undergo the most comprehensive training in the local industry so they can deliver medically sound solutions and care.

This year, Flawless celebrates its 14th anniversary with the 7+7 Beauty Deals promo, which lets clients choose from over 22 service combinations. It runs from Dec. 1 to 31, and may be redeemed within six months from date of purchase.

“We grew in credibility and good standing with our clients,” says Rubby Sy, owner and CEO of Flawless. “That’s why we go the extra mile to be clean, deliver quality and the right kind of care. For these reasons, people choose Flawless.”

The following seven individuals, each flawless in their own right, not just physically but also in their craft, represent the clinic’s success stories — no apps, no magic tricks, no filters. They show that there are many ways to be flawless and many things to be flawless at. It’s not just about beauty: it’s a habit, almost a virtue, that got them to where they want to be.

Kaye Morales, fashion designer

No matter how hectic my schedule gets or how stressed out I feel, I find it easy to see something joyful and funny in the ordinary, everyday things. This same positive energy helps me bring lots of laughs not just in my own life, but in my family’s and friends’ as well. I especially love being silly with kids, playing with them in their toy-filled, imagined worlds. It comes full circle as I bring that whimsicality to my work, in my sketches, clothes and accessories. Moments like these remind me that there’s always something, big or small, from which I can draw inspiration.

Maria Sofia Love, Internet sensation, animal rights activist

I am Flawless because I am not limited by conventions. With this freedom I am able to embrace my uniqueness and live life to the fullest. I reject hate and all kinds of negativity because I choose to love and be more forgiving. This freedom is beautiful and sexy!

Andrey Gorbunov, international dance champion

I am Flawless because I’m hardworking. I am very disciplined with my training, exercise and the food I eat. I am passionate about life and what I do, and I’m honest to others and myself. What you see is what you get — candid, unrehearsed and flawlessly genuine.

Kat Zulueta, entrepreneur

I think my most Flawless characteristic is my passionate attitude towards everything I do. In all my endeavors, I make sure to put my whole heart into it. When you are fueled by passion, challenges feel temporary and every single moment counts, making life a beautiful experience.

Jessey de Leon, volleyball player

My Flawless characteristic is my capability to balance my time for school, volleyball, family and friends. I never give up in times of struggle. This is considered flawless because it shows strength above and beyond flaws and discouraging circumstances.

JR Gallarza, UP Fighting Maroons captain

My most Flawless characteristic would definitely be my jawline, or my butt! Haha. I got both from my mommy. Aside from these two, I’d like to think that my brain is quite Flawless since it has gotten me through everything in my life.

Harry Morris, marine biologist and rugby player

Perseverance is flawless; the ability to not quit and always find a way, or make a way and look good while you’re at it.
