Fashion Live Goes To Bio Derma Skin Academy Session In Dubai
Almost a month ago, when I was busy in organising Fashion Live's very own Bloggers Meetup for the first time, I got a call from this lady Nysa Sheikh who is working with Bio Derma Pakistan. Let me tell you that she was very friendly to me and mentioned that they like my work as a Blogger, and have nominated me to represent Pakistan in their Skin Academy Session that was going to happen in Dubai soon. I was glad to hear that she was observing my work for a while now and hence nominated me for this. I literally felt proud of myself, because after giving days and nights and countless efforts to this blog, my efforts were finally paying off. It was finalized that I, along with a fellow blogger from Lahore, will be visiting Dubai on the 17th of March to attend the Skincare Session arranged by Bio Derma Middle East. Finally, the day arrived when I got my visa along with the ticket and was all ready to leave for the most exciting work trip. I was having mixed feelings as I had a responsibility of representing my country on an International platform.

I also met the fellow blogger Rubia Mogheez, and it was wonderful to meet an experienced journalist who is also running her own blog now. We left early on 17th February and reached Dubai early in the morning. Everything was perfectly organised by Team Bio Derma and their Senior Brand Manager Ms. Binish Amir was so concerned about our safe arrival. They gave us a whole day to ourselves so that we can spend some time and enjoy ourselves in Dubai. A hotel transfer was given to us and we stayed at Address Montgomerie in Emirates Hills. I must mention this that the hotel was simply amazing and we were given separate comfortable rooms. The service was on point and the staff was very friendly. I and Rubia had a great bonding during our stay and spent our first day in exploring and buying our outfits for the event.
On 18th February, I dressed up in my Zara outfit which I bought from the Mall of Emirates and got ready for the exciting meetup. The session started from 10:30 AM onwards and as soon as we entered the Nineteen at Address Montgomorie, the hall was decorated and the tables were decked up with Bio Derma Micellar water bottles. The scrumptious breakfast was being served to all the bloggers as well.

Justine was the Bio Derma Middle East representative who welcomed us whole-heartedly and inquired about our stay. She also mentioned that this was the first time that they have invited Bloggers from Pakistan to attend this session. The blogging community in Pakistan is getting stronger day by day and this is the reason why they wanted bloggers from Pakistan to join them up. It was an honor to hear this from her.
We got to meet bloggers from all over the world including Jordan, Lebanon, India etc. Everyone was friendly and socializing with each other. El Jammi, a famous beauty blogger from Middle east, who is the face of Bio Derma Middle East was also present at the event. She started the session by mentioning that she had struggled with acne for a long time and finally got relief when she started using Bio Derma products.
Dr. Radmila Lukian - a dermatologist was also present and gave us ample knowledge on how to take care of our skin and which cleansers should be used. We as women are crazy about makeup, but we forget the fact that if the skin is taken care of, then only we would be able to look good in makeup too. I, being a makeup artist, have tried to explain this to most of my clients that healthy skin is essential to look good.
In the end, there was a QnA session where I asked about the problem faced by most of the Pakistani women that is hyper pigmentation, and also inquired about the Microdermabrasion procedure.
She told us that we need to use an effective sunscreen when we go out, and should try out the Bio Derma Sunscreen. She also advised to go through the microdermabrasion procedure after every 3 months to reduce pigmentation issues.
After the session was over, we took lots of pictures with each other and were given goodie bags by Bio Derma Middle East team. The products included were Sensibio H2O Micellar Water for removing makeup which is the best one I have ever used; literally takes out makeup in just two swipes. We also got a cleanser which I will be using and reviewing soon. Justine was kind enough to give me two separate bottles of micellar water to solve my problem of pigmentation and dry skin.
For all the readers out there, I would suggest that you try out Bio Derma products as they have a huge variety of products for all the skin types. They are a one stop solution to all your skin problems such as Pigmentation, Dry Skin, Sensitive skin, Oily/Combination skin. They have pore refiners, Cleansers for all skin types and many other products too.
To summarize the trip, I would like to say that I feel very privileged and honored as I was amongst the two Pakistani bloggers to be selected for this exclusive session. It was greatly beneficial, as I got to know some great tips to keep my skin healthy and shared tips with all my followers who were eagerly waiting to know about it.
