I used to wear flats everyday. It's very comfy and convenient for me to carry. I love slippers, and it won't allow us to wear it inside the office that is why I bring my flat shoes with me so that every time I went to the office, and I can quickly change. 

It's actually one of my essential things inside my bag, and this is my routine everyday whenever I go to work on weekdays. 

During the weekends, I still love wearing flats and one of our bonding moments with my kid is to walk around, going to malls and go everywhere. That is why I find Mishka Shoes to be my best buddy.

MERS-CoV is the acronym of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus, it is a viral respiratory illness. It caused by coronavirus from common cold to severe acute respiratory syndrome or SARS. However, MERS-CoV is not SARS. This virus was first reported in Saudi Arabia on 2012.

Other possible symptoms are;

- Cover your nose and mouth with tissue paper when you cough or sneeze. Dispose used tissue paper immediately and properly.

- Avoid touching your face, especially the eyes area, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

- Avoid close contact with sick people.

- Regularly clean frequently touched surfaces such as door knobs and handles.

I was invited to try a new skin care clinic where I am very much impressed with the credentials of their Doctor non-other than Dra. Kyla Talens, aesthetic dermatologist who have been studied here and abroad. What makes me admire her more is that when her mom told us the story about her, like how she transformed into a beautiful Mariposa. 

You won't believe me if I say that she looks unlovely during her childhood as her mother told us. She doesn't even have the confidence to show up with people. Why? It's because of her complexion and the acne due to the excessive oil on her face.

Because of this, she experienced some emotional burden until she looked for a solution to improve her physical appearance. During her years in medical school, she had undergone in different medical aesthetic procedures thinking that this could be a life-changing. 

Today, her commitment is to uplift her patient's Psychosocial well-being by giving the most effective treatment to their physical concerns. This down-to-earth Doctor put up her first clinic named Skin Philisophie Medical Aesthetic & Lifestyle Solutions and was located in the 3rd Level, The Fort Strip, in Bonifacio Global City.

I tried their Skin Philosophie Signature Facial, which takes an hour to do. This treatment has a comprehensive multi-step facial.  

When I get there I have my make-up on so my therapist will first clean my face using their hypoallergenic cleanser this is for sensitive to normal skin, or they will use the degreasing wash if you have oily skin. 

Afterwards, it was followed by a sensual aromatherapy, a calming lymphatic massage and galvanic toning. 

Next is the Scrubbing and diamond micro-dermabrasion to facilitate deeper cleansing in my skin by removing dead skin cells that clog to my pores as well as superficial blackheads and whiteheads.  

Lastly, a high-frequency device closes the pores and application of toner restores the natural skin pH. 

Dra. Kyla told me that this kind facial treatment needs to be done every month for best results. How much? Their price starts at P1,500. 

Usually in other skin care clinics the facial treatment and the diamond feel comes in a separate packages but this one is great because you have the facial cleaning, massage, toning, scrubbing and diamond micro-dermabrasion all in one for a very affordable price. One thing  love in their clinic is the interiors, ambiance and the treatment rooms are all clean. Not to mention their very hospitable therapist.

Johnson and Johnson Consumer Company Inc. conducted the Global Bath Time Report in seven key countries to understand how parents view the bath time in the development of their babies. 

In our country, it has been said that 96% of parents in the Philippines believe that bath time is so much more than just cleaning their babies while 45% do not see that it is extremely important for cognitive development. 

During the Discover So Much More event held in R Space in Makati, I learned that parents from our country has the shortest bath time duration for babies like 15 minutes compared to the global average of 23 minutes. I also learned that we can also make the bath time more enjoyable and treat it as extra bonding time with our baby.

Doctors say that bath time is a potential opportunity to promote cognitive and physical development for babies. 

"Dramatic growth in a child's physical, motor, cognitive and social-emotional development is very much depend on the stimulation a parent provieds in the first several years of a child;s life. Touch is a powerful tool to maintain alert state in babies, to calm them or as an attention-getting stimulus. Touch is also a good reinforcer for positive infant behavior and learning," 
- Dr. Theresa Hilario-Jimenez, President of the Perinatal Association of the Philippines.

Johnson's Philippines Share "Di Lang Ligo Ligo". A parent's role in supporting the early positive experiences and growth of their babies through stimulation is of utmost important. The complete and healthy baby care ritual is a must to enhance our baby's skin. That is why Johnson's products are here in providing care that combines safety, mildness and effectiveness to support our babies' healthy skin development.

The So Much More campaign of Johnson's is so inspiring for parents like me to make the bath time means so much more with our babies and spending more quality time during bath time. It is also one of the precious moments that we can treasure in our lifetime.

So Mommy and Daddy out there, spend more time with your babies especially during bath time. To know more about Johnson's and how you can enhance your baby's bath time experience, visit www.johnsonsbaby.com/somuchmore.
