Helping Teens Establish Great Skincare Habits

by 11:16 PM
Every parent wants to help get their teen off to a great start in life. Part of doing this is helping them navigate the world of skincare. Yes, believe it or not, skincare is going to play a big role in their lives. They will spend countless hours looking into the mirror trying to determine how to look their best, and they will take more selfies than you could imagine. With a little effort, parents can help their teens get off to a great start with their skincare routine, which can protect their skin well into their adult years.

My well maintained skin since my teenage years. ­čĹî

It’s important for teens to learn about skincare from a young age. While we don’t want them to obsess about it, the more they know about it, the better able they are to help protect it. Their skin is their largest organ, and if they don’t take care of it then there’s a good chance they will have skin that looks dull, dry, and they may even have premature aging. The last thing a teen wants is to start thinking about getting wrinkles young, and having great skincare habits can help them avoid that.

Here are some ways that parents can help teens establish great skincare habits:

· Talk to them about touching their face often. Teens have a habit of putting their hands all over their face, and what they don’t realize is that the germs on their hands can lead to clogged pores. Let them know it’s important that their hands are clean when they are touching their face, so it helps keep it clean.
· Some teens may have acne issues, which is all the more reason to start working on great skincare habits. Start out getting them the best treatment so that it is cleared up and they can go forward feeling confident about their skin. You can learn more here in Facingacne.com 
· Bedtime routines are essential when establishing great skincare habits. Many teen girls wear makeup on their face during the day. It’s important that they learn to never go to bed with it on their face. Boys need to wash their face before bed as well, because their skin may be dirty and sweaty.
· It’s important to opt for a face cleaner that will not dry the skin out. They should use something that is gentle and chemical-free. Look for a high quality gentle soap that won’t dry the skin out.
· When it comes to showering, teens should again go for a gentle body soap, and try to keep their bathing to 5 minutes so that it doesn’t dry the skin out. After patting their skin dry, using a good quality moisturizer will help to keep it feeling and looking great for years to come.
· Many teens today are opting for using tanning beds or trying to lay in the sun to tan. Now is a good time to share some information with them about the risks that brings to their skin. The American Academy of Dermatology reports that teens are not being warned about the dangers of using tanning beds. Teens should be warned that using tanning beds increases their chances of developing skin cancer by 75%. Add to that the fact that it can also lead to the skin prematurely getting wrinkles, and it’s easy to see why they would want to steer clear of it if they know the facts.
· While smoking among teens has been dropping in recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are still around 8% of high school students who do it. Smoking can lead to premature wrinkles, dry the skin out, and can damage it, giving them one more reason to avoid lighting up.

Parents who work with their teens to get healthy skincare habits established are helping them to create good habits that will last a lifetime. They may need to be patient with them as they learn the ropes of caring for their skin, in finding the products they like best, and they may need to be reminded of the habits from time to time, but once they establish the habits, they will love the way their skin looks and feels.

How I Minimized My Large Pores Featuring The Beauty Empire

by 2:03 PM
When talking about enlarged pores, I know I am not alone because most of the guy's skin surface is shiny and oily, blackheads and clogged pores are ridiculously visible. Even some girls are experiencing the same problem so I decided to share you these two treatments that helped me minimized the appearance of my extra large pores.

What?
OxyGeneo 3-in1 Super Facial and Jet Peel Facial

Where?

#35 A Timog Ave. Quezon City
1103 Quezon City, Philippines

For appointments, call or text: 0956-388-8825

How much?
Oxygeneo 3-in1 Super Facial: P3,000 per session
Jet Peel Facial: P1,500 per session



To be honest, before visiting The Beauty Empire, I wasn't a fan of any facial treatments because I had horrible experiences from other skincare clinics in the past. But this time, I braved myself to try another treatment since the routine and machine are way different compared to other skincare clinics.

To cut the long story short, I became a fan, not only of their treatments but also of that specific clinic (The Beauty Empire). I really appreciate their splendid customer service and the way they treat every guests is superb! There's really a sense of royalty upon entering their clinic because of the modern golden interior that is fit right for a king and queen.






OxyGeneo provides 3 effective facial treatments simultaneously. It combines gentle exfoliation, natural skin oxygenation, and a deep facial rejuvenation with the infusion of essential revitalizing nutrients.

This treatment promises:
  • Plump and hydrate
  • Restore skin volume
  • Renew youthful glow
  • Revitalize dull complexion
  • Reduce appearance of wrinkles
  • Firm skin and tighten pores
  • Improve skin cell production
  • Reduce appearance of pigmentation
I am giving you my word for this super facial. It's really effective and you can really see visible result right after just one treatment. The best thing about OxyGeneo is it doesn't include pricking and there's no downtime so you can go back to your normal skincare routine or daily activity after the treatment. Another thing that I need to mention is that, The Beauty Empire offers really affordable rate for this treatment. Believe me! Some beauty clinics are offering Oxygeneo for P8,000 to P10,000 per session using exactly the same machine (boo!).




Jet Peel is simply a “pressure wash” that uses jet technology to deep clean by infusing saline and oxygen into the skin, leaving it hydrated, exfoliated and feeling refreshed. There is no pain, no downtime and it feels cool and soothing to your skin.

This treatment promises:
  • Superficial facial peeling
  • Ideal for various skin types
  • Leaves no dead or burned skin
  • Improves perioral wrinkles
  • Only natural components
Another favorite from The Beauty Empire Face and Body Center. This treatment will start with a regular facial cleansing that includes pricking but they do it in a very gentle way. The Jet Peel is a very relaxing facial because it's cold and it massages the skin. I do OxyGeneo and Jet Peel alternately.

After two sessions of OxyGeneo and Jet Peel, I noticed that my skin is way brighter and smoother. I also noticed that I rarely get pimples after those treatments which is a big plus for me since I have an acne-prone skin. But the selling point of these two amazing treatments for me is it was able to minimize the appearance of my pores. Look at this unedited photo:


I documented my experience and how OxyGeneo and Jet Peel done through video blog on my YouTube channel. You can watch the video here:


I highly recommend these treatments to you guys especially if you are like me with larges pores and acne-prone skin. I also encourage everyone to visit The Beauty Empire Face and Body Center as they offer really affordable treatments without compromising the quality. They offer free consultations as they have an in-house Dermatologist. For inquiries, just message them on Facebook or text: 0956-388-8825.

Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Topical Scalp Solution Review Part 1

by 1:55 PM
So here's an update one month after my first impression review about the Novuhair Herbal Shampoo and Topical Scalp Solution. I am continuously using this product as directed because I'm honestly enjoying it (I even featured Novuhair in some of my YouTube videos).



I mentioned on my first blog post that I hate the smell of the scalp solution because it smells like acetone which I am not a fan. But now, I can happily say that I'm getting used to it hehe. Another think that I super like about Novuhair is I don't need to consume a lot of shampoo and scalp solution to treat my hair because a little goes a long way. I feel like I'm getting the best value for my money.



It's no longer a secret because I mentioned on my first blog post about Novuhair that I'm getting bald on my front head. Thankfully, after using this combination for more than a month, I can see a noticeable result already. It's not as surprising as an engagement ring but I'm really happy to see some baby hair growing. Yay!!




I'm almost done with my first bottle and to be honest, I want to buy another set because I'm loving the result. I noticed that my hair is shinier, thicker, and stronger than ever. Even my friend, Lyn from Malaysia noticed it when we met during her Christmas vacation. I will continue using this product and I'll keep you updated with the result after finishing my second bottles.

I'm sure you guys are keen to know where to buy these amazing products. Please check the details below:

Where to buy?
Leading Drugstores nationwide

How much?
P4,980 (set of 2 Shampoos and 1 Scalp Solution)

NOVUHAIR® TOPICAL SCALP LOTION is a unique combination of 19 natural ingredients and essential oils formulated to stop hair loss, proudly Philippine-made, developed by expert scientists and researchers, clinically proven safe and effective, produced in accordance to the highest quality specifications of the industry, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) registered, certified Halal by the Islamic Da’wah Council of the Philippines, Inc.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

by 3:26 PM
Facial cleansers are super trendy this season, but if you're really looking to take proper care of your skin, micellar water is a real game-changer. However, not all micellar waters are created equal so it's crucial to find one that is really suitable to your skin type.

Since I have combination skin type, I am currently loving the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (Blue) because this one is intended for oily to combination skin types. There's also a pink variant for normal to dry skin types.

What?
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review


All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover. Cleanses + removes even waterproof makeup + refreshes. No rinse, no harsh rubbing. For face, lips, and eyes.



How to Use:

Shake Well 

TO REMOVE EYE MAKEUP:
Hold pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then gently wipe without harsh rubbing. 

TO CLEAN SKIN & REMOVE FACE MAKEUP:

Gently wipe all over until skin is completely clean from makeup and impurities. Use daily, AM/PM. No need to rinse.

Where to buy?
Watsons and supermarkets nationwide

How much?
P149.00 (125ml)

I don't wear much makeup and as much as possible, I'm avoiding wearing one. But due to my nature of work, I need to wear makeup whenever I'm attending events and press conferences for me to look more presentable and professional.



Though it's true that I don't wear much makeup compared to girls, I still need a good makeup remover to help me get rid of any trace of cosmetics on my face, especially most of the guys have oily skin and we need thicker or matte foundation to get a nice shine-free look all throughout the day. As we all know, matte foundations are really hard to remove and it penetrates deep to the skin so a facial soap or cleanser is surely not enough.

What I like about Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is its ability to remove my foundation completely in just one swipe so I won't have to rub my face many times just to get rid of the foundation. Doing so can also lead to skin irritation and acne breakout.

It's a fragrance free cleanser and it feels just like your regular water but better. It has no cooling or stinging effect on the skin which I super duper love. I also like the fact that this product has the ability to matiffy the skin after use. True enough, there's no trace of oil after using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.

The selling point of this product for me is it didn't cause me acne breakout. Since I have a sensitive skin, I'm always on a hunt for a product that does not cause acne and I'm glad I found this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.

I actually featured this product on my Skincare routine video in my YouTube channel. Please watch here:



What about you? What is your favorite makeup remover? I wanna know so please share it in the comment box below. :)

Uratex Promotes the Value of Sharing Moments Together

by 10:57 AM
Filipinos enjoy cherishing the times we share with family, friends, and loved ones especially during the holiday season. For the majority, the best memories are created inside the bedroom where family members bond or catch up with each other before they call it a day. 

Giving salute to the importance of family traditions, Uratex, who is celebrating 50 years this 2018 unveiled a Christmas-themed video to celebrate family memories made inside the bedroom, their common area of solitude, and the bed, a central and key witness to that celebration.




The video starts by showing a young man longing for the love and company of their mother, supposedly an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). He has not seen her as she has not come home for the past three years working overseas. Not a day passes that the young man misses his mother, where he shared many fun and memorable moments with her while at his bedroom during his childhood. And now that Christmas is near, the longing is felt more than ever. 

Meanwhile, the young man’s elder brother also does his best to overcome his yearning for their mother’s presence by focusing all his strength on his job. He silently cares for his brother’s needs and sees to it that his younger brother continues to strive to be the best individual that he can be. But like his younger brother, he misses his mother as well. 

Alas, their wish was granted on Christmas Day when, as they try to celebrate Christmas just like in the previous years without their mother, they were pleasantly surprised with her arrival. The joy in the younger brother’s eyes was evident with their mother’s presence in a special time such as Christmas, finally, as one family. 

For the elder brother, the arrival of their mother was the perfect time to tell her that he is now ready to take on the responsibility of caring for the family’s needs. With their mother’s long-awaited homecoming, it will be the perfect opportunity to create new memories again together—as one family.

Uratex Philippines, the undisputed leader in the foam manufacturing industry believes that family love and comfort are always at the forefront in the tradition of selfless care and service to the Filipinos. Uratex believes that family love, caring and looking out for the welfare and greater comfort of each other is vital.  Each Uratex bed provides ultimate comfort to promote a healthful and relaxed sleep night after night. This helps invigorate the body so it will remain fit and fully charged to make each family member ready to face life’s daily challenges. 



For Uratex founders Robert and Natividad Y. Cheng, the products that they’ve developed over the past five decades have been uncompromising when it comes to celebrating the beauty of love and life. Each mattress that rolls out of the company’s manufacturing facilities is the result of the Chengs’ vision to share comfort with every Filipino. With constant innovation, Uratex products remain synonymous to rest and relaxation, love and comfort. 

After their mother’s arrival, what special Yuletide celebration awaits the two sons? Watch this special video courtesy of Uratex Philippines produced by Mode Devi Media Group in collaboration with Project Geekid Productions and Wonderlast Film:

Snow Skin Whitening Cream/Lotion/Toner/Soap Review

by 6:07 PM
I have been wanting to try this product since last year (2016) because I have been hearing a lot of positive feedback about this set. However, because I have so much whitening products sent by PR companies, I didn't get the chance to purchase this product because I felt that there were too much in my plate already and spending money for another whitening product wasn't a good idea at all.

Last October 2017, I had the chance to use these products because I really can't help but to try them because a lot of my blogger friends are raving about it. So yeah, I gave in and surrendered whatever it is that I'm using during that time to give way to this famous Snow Skin Whitening line.



What?
Snow Skin Whitening Cream/Lotion/Toner/Soap Review



Snow Skin Whitening Products contain 7 Skin Whitening Actives that whiten and lighten the skin while reversing skin problems such as dark spots, age spots, acne marks, old scars, uneven skin tone and melasma.

Where to buy?
Mercury Drugstores, Watsons and Lazada

Before we start, I just wanna let you know that I won't be focusing on the ingredients and benefits of each products. You can find those in their Lazada shop by clicking "here". I want this review to be focused on what I like and I don't like about each products.


Snow Skin Whitening Soap


What I like: It's really a mild whitening soap. I rarely use whitening soap on my face and if you guys are following me ever since, you probably know that already. I like how it actually makes my face squeaky clean every after wash without sucking all the moisture on my face. My face looks glowing after washing with Snow Skin Whitening Soap.


What I don't like: It's not producing generous amount of bubbles. I mean there is, but for me it's not enough hahaha. I know, I'm weird AF. ^_^


Snow Skin Whitening Toner


What I like: This is an ice cold liquid toner fresh from the fridge! Literally, it's the coolest toner I have ever tried. Its coldness is in extreme level! As we all know, even just a cold water has the ability to close our open pores and this product just does that. I feel that my face is smoother and better to touch after a month of using the Snow Skin Whitening Toner.

What I don't like: Because it's so damn cold and it has that minty feel whenever I'm applying this product, I get tears until the product is fully absorbed by my skin.




Snow Skin Whitening Cream


What I like: First of all, I so love the packaging of this product because it comes in a small airless dispenser. Its pump and transparent plastic crown makes the product undeniably hygienic. This is actually my most favorite from the Snow Skin Whitening set because it's very lightweight and not sticky at all. It doesn't cause me acne and most importantly, it brightened up my skin.

What I don't like: NONE


Snow Skin Whitening Lotion


What I like: This has the same packaging as the Snow Skin Whitening Cream the only difference is that, this one is taller, of course. And just like the cream, this lotion is very lightweight and not sticky at all. I love its smell because it relaxes me every time I'm applying this lotion specially during night time. I noticed that my skin is lighter and more glowing compared before. I think it was able to make my skin a shade lighter after finishing one big bottle.

What I don't like: Bottle is too big but I don't mind it at all.

All in all, this Snow Skin Whitening line is superb! It's the skincare line that is true to its claims and I'm really willing to repurchase it. I highly recommend these products to you my #VanityFriends most importantly to those who are looking for some whitening products that is suitable for acne-prone skin. This is a must try skincare line!

I actually featured these products on my skincare routine video in my YouTube channel. Please watch it here:
