With the launch in 1988 the John Frieda Brand brought genuine salon-inspired products that deliver salon-quality results at home for the first time.  The brand went on to pioneer first-to-market, fashion-forward haircare innovations such as Frizz-Ease, Sheer Blond, Brilliant Brunette, Luxurious Volume and Precision Foam Color - each designed to meet the evolving needs of women and to give them hair they truly love. 

When the John Frieda Brands launched 25 years ago a new era in beauty was heralded.  The haircare landscape at that time is barely recognizable to the colossus it is today.  And yet still, thanks to the fusion of its legendary salon-heritage with unrivaled technological innovation, the John Frieda Brand remains one of the best-selling haircare brands – and indeed most awarded haircare brands – in the UK today.  

One of the brand’s biggest success stories is its legendary Frizz-Ease range which launched in 1990 and has since become a household name.  A best-seller when it launched, and today still the number one selling smoothing range, Frizz-Ease transformed women’s lives by banishing frizz - visibly transforming frizz-to-fabulous.  The newest addition to the award-winning range is Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Enhancing Oil (£9.99 for 50 ml) a lightweight oil elixir that instantly adds softness and shine to naturally curly and wavy hair.

The John Frieda Brand is celebrating 25 years in style with a star-studded party in the ballroom at Claridges Hotel in London on 29th October.  Giles Gordon, Marketing Director at the John Frieda Brand comments, “We are incredibly proud that the John Frieda Brand is as relevant today as when it was launched 25 years ago so we feel that’s something worth celebrating.  The event will celebrate the past whilst looking ahead to what’s next and how we can continue to transform women’s lives.” #JohnFrieda25.

I used not to finish the food in my plate before but not when I start working and earn money. I often told my friends to eat everything in their plates every time we dined out. Even today, that I have my personal family and starting to build good habits in our own table. I used to force my kid to finish his food because, as I always say to him, "not all people eat food that you are eating." Telling him that he is lucky enough to have more than 3 meals a day. 

More and more people around the world have no food in their plates while other is not being mindful of wasting their food. In a research, it says that 50% of food supplies end up in garbage, and it was sad to know. 

I'm glad to hear and to know that Healthy Options has an advocacy to stop food wastage using social media, and they call it "Love Food, Don't Waste." And I love the idea of discouraging and aiming to reduce food wastage. 

We can help raise this campaign of Healthy Options by participating in the "Love Food, Don't Waste" campaign. Healthy Options is activating "Foodless Plate" where we can help by making donations to Hands On Manila. 

I used to take a picture of my food before I eat it but starting today; I will take pictures after I finish my food because it can help feed one child. So what are you waiting for, take a picture of your finish meal every where you are and post it in Instagram and other social media sites with a hashtag, #foodlessplate. Don't forget to tag Healthy Options. 

If we reach 500 entries, Healthy Options will donate to Hands On Manila Foundation to feed 500 kids. Here are the #FoodlessPlate Mechanics: 

1. After eating, post a photo of your empty plate on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.  You can submit one photo per day.  Your #foodlessplate photos need to be set to public in order for them to count.

Some women are just born perfect. They have flawless skin, toned, sexy body, and silky, long, luscious hair, while some just don’t have it all. If you belong to the first group, you are blessed. You are one of those women we get so jealous of because you just look absolutely perfect anytime of the day.

But for those who belong to the second group, fret not! You are not alone. Even seemingly perfect celebrities have flaws they just know how to correct them.

Here are seven common beauty problems and how to fix them: 

1. Dry skin. As we grow older, our skin gradually grows thinner and produces less natural oil. Experts say these factors contribute to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dry skin is caused by changes of weather, steamy showers, moisture-robbing soaps, too much scrubbing, aging, irritants, or skin conditions.

The fix: Beauty experts recommend patients to see a doctor for a medical advice. But if you think it’s a simple drying of the skin, try drinking lots of water – all day, every day. Try to look for cleansers and other skincare products (toners, exfoliators, etc.) with moisturizing ingredients that will not dry the skin like Derma Celesty Series of Shinagawa Lasik & Aesthetics. It is developed by leading Japanese dermatologists to rejuvenate the skin. Jewelry gel, cleansing foam, and exfoliating gel contain hydrolyzed fiber. W-BTX essence makes your skin silky and ageless by reducing wrinkles instantly.

2. Body odor. It is an unpleasant smell in our bodies caused by bacteria that live on the skin break down sweat into acids. It becomes evident when a human reaches puberty at 14-16 years of age in females and 15-17 in males. People who are obese, those who regularly eat spicy foods, as well as individuals with certain medical conditions such as diabetes, are more susceptible to having body odor.

The fix: Proper hygiene and diet, and the use of dermatologically tested beauty products can eliminate body odor. Celesty Flora’s deodorant body scrub contains Tannin of Persimmon fruit extracts that fights unpleasant body odor while making your skin soft, radiant, and delicately scented with an uplifting citrus fragrance. It’ll make you smell good and feel good! 

3. Excess weight. This is often associated with obesity and cholesterol. Too much body fats can often lead to other health issues such as breathing difficulties, arthritis, and heart disease. 

The fix: Nothing beats regular exercise and a sensible diet plan. But some women have slow metabolism that they tend to have a hard time losing weight. Fit ‘n Slim contains L-Carnitin to speed up metabolism and a delicious diet coffee which is very popular among women of all ages. You can also try Musevital supplements for those who are eager to maintain their beauty, health, and great shape. It offers vitamins B, C, E, and collagen supplements.

4. Uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation. This is a very common problem and tends to get worse as skin ages. One study by a beauty company suggested that one in four women were concerned about hyperpigmentation, which is cited as one of the main visible signs of ageing. 

The fix: Women with severe skin pigmentation problems are advised to go and see their dermatologist who can prescribe more effective skin lighteners or treatments. For those without severe conditions and just wanted to have an even and flawless skin can use Celesty Glow products. It specializes in skin whitening and uses ingredients including YH-15 (yeast extract) that contains not only Glutathione but also proper balance of vitamins and minerals. The package includes Extreme Whitening Essence and Extreme Whitening Moisturizer. The Extreme Whitening Essence color originally comes from Vitamin B12 and effectively works for the skin’s pigmentation. The Essence Whitening Moisturizer protects your skin from dryness and leaves a smooth and radiant-looking skin. 

5. Sagging/loose skin. This is brought about by genetics, weight changes, and sun damage. Some doctors say that once skin starts to slacken, pores often look larger, as if they’ve been stretched out of shape. As we age, our faces lose volume, primarily fat. As a result, skin can hang down as gravity acts on it creating droopiness, wrinkles, and bands.

The fix: According to a doctor, sagging skin requires more intervention than any other problem. People tend to ask medical experts for alternatives or use some skin tightening lotions which are available in the market today, or if it really looks ugly, you may need a surgery. 3D Angel Life is a non-invasive procedure that can make you look younger in an instant. It uses a special kind of thread that lifts facial sagging without surgery. This three-dimensional (3D) method brings a natural and long lasting effect that helps tighten the skin and prevents future sagging. See dramatic results right after the procedure.

6. Unwanted hair. Unwanted hair growth results when women produce too much male hormones, which is not normal and the exact cause is never identified. It tends to run in families. Although it’s a harmless condition, many women find it bothersome or even embarrassing. 

The fix: There are a number of ways to remove or treat unwanted hair – either temporary or permanent. But with Candela, it completely eliminates unwanted hair. Now the tedious way of completely removing hair has become easier and faster with the help of Medical Treatment Laser Hair Removal. Candela is a state-of-the-art laser technology which is more times effective and is designed to successfully target areas other procedures failed to address.

7. Poor or deteriorating vision. As they say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, but how can you appreciate beauty if you have a poor vision? Do you know that loss of vision can occur suddenly or develop gradually over time? It may be complete (involving both eyes) or partial (only one eye) and it can be corrected by eyeglasses.

The fix: If eyeglasses can’t correct your problem anymore, try Z-Lasik. It is the latest and most advanced refractive eye surgery – bladeless, precise, and reduced pulse energy with no inflammation. It has shorter procedure time, with quick recovery of vision “within minutes” and faster tissue healing allowing for quicker resumption of active lifestyle. You’ll have 20/20 vision in an instant.

So stop worrying! Turn to Japan’s number one Aesthetic Center and world’s largest Intralasik Eye Surgery Provider, Shinagawa Lasik & Aesthetics for all your beauty problems. With over 25 years of experience and 3 million successful procedures, Shinagawa continues to set the standard in cutting-edge treatments.
