Curves 25th Birthday and Kick-off Party for Breast Cancer Awareness

One of the largest chains of fitness clubs for women is celebrating their 25th year. It was out of the blue when I get invited to the event. I, together with the other blogger friend didn't even get to witness their flash mob dance of Curves Bonifacio Global City Team because we are all late.

However, we still get a chance to participate in their other activities. They have Zumba which I joined for 45 minutes, they have raffles, exciting games, product samples from sponsors and of course the best part of it is the learning where there's a short talk about breast cancer.






It just actually a preview to what will happen to their upcoming events which is the Breast Cancer Awareness this October.





I join their games and it was totally tough, 25 times fulling the thing with your feet is a no joke. We loss the game but it was fun. I also won something during the raffle and got a chance to take home some freebies from their sponsors.

It was a day to remember and to cherish. Kudos to all members and coaches of Curves Bonifacio Global City!

My Nail-a-holics Experienced At Glorietta 3 Branch

Hello Loves!

Guess what? I was so excited to share to you my Nail-a-holics experience. I got a busy day when I saw the message of one of my blogger friend who invited me to try the services of Nail-a-holics. I got so thrilled to have a foot spa that day aside from having a sore feet lately.

I was rushing to the venue which is in Glorietta and I heard that they just got open recently. It was actually still part of their National Pampering Day campaign. Winding inside the Glorietta 3 mall, I was luckily bumped to some of their staff and asked where they are located. 

Finally got to the venue... Yey!

When I get there, the staff are very accommodating and I was delighted. I was seated to the vacant chair and being ask what kind of services I wanted to have. There are actually five choices, A to E options and I choose letter A ( O.P.I Manicure, O.P.I Pedicure with Foot Spa. I was actually thinking of the letter B. However, letter A was kinda fit for me that day.


The Nail-a-holics staff prepared the things that she's going to use for me. First she gave me a warm foot soak and I love it. It feels so relaxing and gives me a calm mood. She proceed to the foot spa and while she scrubbing  my feet... I was a bit tickled. Almost got to laugh but thanks to the waiter who gave me something to munch while having pampered.




I told ate Shiela to pay attention more on the foot spa because for the manicure and pedicure I will be so easy to her. She just need to cut the nails, clean it and dry it. No need to put effort on it. Although, I ask her to put a nude color of polish on my feet. It's been ages when I have a nail polish on my feet and I think the last is when I was in College.



It took her almost an hour to finish the whole nail service but it was nice and not painful compare to others. One thing that I do not go to a nail salon because I am afraid to get hurt by the nail technicians. However, my experience with Nail-a-holics staff was really astonishing and reminds me not to be afraid specially with the services of Nail-a-holics because they can take good care of you.



The ambiance of the place is really inviting, the vibrant colors of blue, green and white is so placid. It was cool in the eyes and pleasant

You can have your nails done without any hassle and pain free!


Oh, I heard that they will be having a National Pampering Day on October 17, 2017 and enjoy a choice of FREE Manicure, Foot Spa or Foot Massage from 10am - 1pm. 



See you there!

The Power of Oxygen with Skin Renew

One of the most prevalent skincare problems each and every one complains about is Dull skin. As we age, our glowing, healthy skin gets damaged, and with a demanding and oftentimes noxious lifestyle, it seems absolutely impossible to maintain it. We often wonder how a lucky few seems to have been blessed with glowing healthy skin despite the hectic lifestyle. But did you know that aside from a healthy lifestyle and diet, another factor that causes dull skin is poor oxygen supply?

Fret not, because a new, cutting edge skin treatment can literally restore the youthfulness to your stressed, seemingly perpetually harassed demeanor with just a few sessions and literally no surgery required. The Svelt’i Health and Beauty Centre has made available Skin Renew, which rejuvenates the most visible organ in your body and can make it smooth again, shining and unblemished, through the power of oxygen.


When people talk about bad skin, they are usually describing skin that lacks radiance or glow like that associated with young, healthy skin. Dr.Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of Svelt’i Health and Beauty Centre shares “We don’t realize it but oftentimes, the most frequent casualty of corporate warriors as they go through their high-pressure jobs and situations every day is that their face takes a beating.” She also adds, “The effects of aging like laugh lines can come out earlier, even among those who are just in their thirties. Worry and anxiety can make the skin lose its radiance and no matter how much they try to look good or put on cosmetics, what their face shows is a dull pallor.” Hence, Svelt’i came up with Skin Renew, which introduces a program that offers efficient, safe, and healthy solutions to men and women who fight a continual battle against constant fatigue, sleeplessness, and stress.

So how does Skin Renew actually work? The first step, exfoliation, cleanses the skin and removes dead skin cells that have made the face sag and wrinkled. After this cleansing, the face receives an infusion of essential nutrients that can combat toxic elements while generating carbon dioxide bubbles that gently burst on its surface. Oxygenation then follows; oxygen-rich blood is carried to the surface of the skin, increasing its absorption of the nutrient-filled serum.

Capping the process is the application of the tripolar radio frequency on the face and other affected skin. This triggers the collagen fibers to contract. It also causes increase in fibroblasts metabolism. As a result, the skin goes through a remodeling, becoming firmer and tighter. “The treatment has a lot of benefits for patients who want to look and feel young again,” says Dr. Salazar. 

“Thru Skin Renew, one will acquire a youthful radiant glow. The acceleration of the production of skin oxygen nourishes the skin and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Skin complexion and texture improve. Wrinkles and unflattering lines are reduced.”

Now, who would’ve thought that oxygen can actually give us that youthful glowing skin that we only dream about? Dr. Salazar adds, “Patients who go through this treatment come out with a more radiant, firmer skin. They possess a certain glow that are both internal and external. That is the power of oxygenation.”

Those who want to try SvelTi’s unique and effective approach can avail of the various promos that they are offering this special anniversary month of September. To know more about SvelT’i’s treatments, please inquire at (02)332-7546 / 09188-SVELTI (783584) or visit the clinic at 5F South Insula Condominium #61 Timog Avenue, Quezon City from Mondays to Fridays from 9am-6pm and Saturdays from 8am-1pm.

Minoxidil Regroe Supports Alopecia Awareness Month

Minoxidil Regroe joined the world in celebrating the annual Alopecia Awareness Month with its Blue Party. It aimed at heightening awareness as well as helping understand what alopecia is all about and how to cope with this condition.

This noteworthy event happened last September 21, 2017 at Dillinger’s 1903 Steak & Brew Greenbelt 3 in Makati City, gathered bloggers and media friends to help disseminate further information about alopecia. The Blue Party event was Minoxidil Regroe’s way of supporting people who suffer from this condition.  In addition, blue is the color of Alopecia Awareness which is celebrated every September. Guests present on the said affair voluntarily cut their hair as a symbolic gesture of showing support to people with alopecia.




During the event, an alopecia advocate and survivor shared her journey about her experience in having this autoimmune condition and how she surpassed her condition despite the stigma attached to it. “Alopecia should not be ignored as it affects not only one’s outer appearance but also one’s inner being. People do not understand that it is not as simple as shedding of hair to one’s scalp or body but an autoimmune condition that resulted to hair loss,” said Au De Leon.

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, causing the body’s immune system to attack the hair follicles, resulting in partial or complete hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body. The most common types of alopecia areata are alopecia areata patchy or coin-like patches on the scalp or other areas of the body, alopecia totalis or total hair loss on the scalp, and alopecia universalis or complete loss of hair on the scalp, face and body.


In the website of National Alopecia Areata Foundation, (www.naaf.org), the foundation presented that 147 million people worldwide are affected by alopecia areata with a lifetime risk of 2.1 percent.   

Dr. Vinson B. Pineda, a renowned Filipino dermatologist, who brought Minoxidil Regroe in the Philippines was present in the said event. He shed light about alopecia and how Minoxidil Regroe can help people with alopecia in managing their condition.  According to Dr. Pineda, Minoxidil Regroe is the first treatment for hair loss and other cases of alopecia that has done wonders for both men and women in addressing their hair loss concerns. “Minoxidil Regroe is scientifically proven safe and effective to grow hair,” explained Dr. Pineda. “Consistent use of Minoxidil Regroe allows hair to grow back longer, regaining their lost confidence and self-esteem,” added Dr. Pineda.

As part of Minoxidil Regroe’s efforts to educate the public about hair loss, the brand has continuously provided and conducted free hair and scalp consultation to its consumers with the support of its trade partners nationwide. This is Minoxidil Regroe’s way of raising awareness about the importance of attaining healthy hair and preventing cases of progressive hair loss that diminish one’s confidence and self-esteem.

Neuropathy Awareness For Good Health Through Nerve Therapy Trip

Have you ever felt something like numbness, muscle weakness, and pins and needles? If so, you are experiencing Neuropathy. Its actually the symptoms of nerve damage and most of us did not mind it and even it was often, most sufferers do not seek medical
advice.


So what exactly is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy, a disorder affecting nerves, which is experienced by many people in the Philippines. Despite this high frequency, many men and women who have it are not even aware of their condition. In fact, nerve health is not a topic that many people actually think about.

Sometimes they are often attributed to more mundane causes, such as fatigue or wrong sleeping position. While these symptoms can indeed be linked to such causes, it is undeniable that Neuropathy is a possible cause.

Such symptoms are often thought of as so inconsequential that sufferers do not seek medical advice. Frequently, sufferers report minor discomfort or irritation at their symptoms and tend to ignore their persistence.

Other possible symptoms of Neuropathy:

- Increased sensitivity to touch
- Sharp pains
- Extreme sensitivity to pain
- A burning feeling
- Reduced sensitivity to pain
- Loss of sensation, and
- Reduced sense of touch.

There are also a number of conditions in which nerve damage appears or can be a secondary complication. Causes and risk factors are multiple and include causes and conditions such as genetics (a family member suffers from Neuropathy), chronic diseases (like diabetes), environmental toxins (such as smoking), alcoholism, nutritional deficiencies (including B Vitamin deficiency), and even side effects of certain medications. This condition can be
idiopathic (have no known cause).



The Neuropathy Awareness

Merck Inc., the maker of Neurobion, understands just how serious and difficult nerve health issues can be, especially for the people who work hard every day to provide for the ones they care about. This holds true especially in the case of people who perform repetitive motions as part of their daily routine.

The act of daily commuting puts pressure on the hands and feet, and on the nerves. With the traffic and the sheer number of commuters out there, commuting conditions are far from ideal for nerves. Crowded vehicles, jostling for position in a full train, standing in a moving bus – these can all take their toll on nerves after some time.


This is why Merck came up with its Neuropathy Awareness Campaign. This is in line with the company’s WE100 corporate vision of helping humankind live longer, fuller lives of quality and good health, and is intended to educate Filipinos on Neuropathy, its causes and common symptoms, and ways to prevent it from happening.

The campaign brings the spotlight onto the everyday True Heroes, the men and women who work hard daily to take care of the people they care about.

As Merck Inc. have given the important role of they called True Heroes in their families, they undoubtedly deserve recognition and care. These are part of the Neuropathy Awareness Campaign, in which people are urged to take care of their nerves so they can continue their important roles. We need to take care of our nerves.

This comes amid the reality that, while damaged nerves repair naturally via regeneration, after a certain time (when approximately 50% or more of nerve tissue is damaged), the damage is permanent. This so-called “point of no return” makes early detection and diagnosis vital.

In line with Neuropathy Awareness Month, Neurobion decided to give these True Heroes a trip that they wouldn’t expect but most definitely deserve.


 “Neurobion wanted to do something that not only would spread awareness on nerve damage, but would also serve as a treat to those who are susceptible to it, and these are the working-class Filipinos.” 
Loy Juan Dy-Buncio, Neurobion Brand Manager

And with that, the Nerve Therapy Trip was born.

The Nerve Therapy Trip was launched recently and it will provide an upgraded bus ride that keeps passengers relaxed as they head to and from work. 

The Nerve Therapy Trip will also teach us how to take care of our nerves despite of our busy lives with the the help of Neuro Motion video or simply by doing a simple exercises that we can perform on the way to work or even at the office. The video will be played during the Nerve Therapy Trip.


To experience the Nerve Therapy Trip for yourself, look for the Neurobion buses on the Alabang-Navotas route and vice versa for 25 days beginning August 7. Take a ride to #LoveYourNerves!
