Must-Have: My Summer Beauty Essentials:

Today I just thought of sharing about my favorite summer beauty products. Yes, the hot month’s are buzzing. Im going to share with you all my favorite products.So lets just get into it.

Hair Products:

I just recently had my hair colored to a shades lighter, so hopefully my new color will last a bit longer with this PANTENE Color & Perm lasting care shampoo. It helps repair chemical damage and protect colors and perms for longer.

I love the Davines nounou/pak nourishing repairing mask! It’s a hair treatment that I use once a week for dry and brittle hair and i let it soak into my hair for 5 to 15 min. Then wash it out with warm water. I highly recommend this product,It gives my hair a beautiful shine and helps control the frizz.it costs 1,700Php, Yes! it’s just too expensive but you have to pay more for the quality product, but well worth it.Image

Keep your hands clean and Protected with Hygienix anti-bacterial hand spray. It comes in a convenient spray bottle that you can use at home or on the go.it has this Citrus sunshine scent that leaves you fresh once you spray it.

One thing I hold on to when I do have a bad hair day is Vitress hair solutions since it conditions my hair and keeps my hair straight and manageable. I would definitely recommend Vitress!

I absolutely cannot live without bobby hair pins. I use them almost every day. For a girl with pin straight hair, that says a lot !

Face and Body Products:

So in the summer I like to keep my face pretty bare. However, I do like to have some extra coverage when I’m doing something special. I have a new face cream powder addiction, folks. The new Skinwhite Advanced Power Whitening Face Cream Powder with SPF 12.the first and only one in the market.it is a unique technology that amazingly transforms from a moisturizer cream into a light,matte powder when applied into your skin.i just love it because it’s light and doesn’t look like your face is melting in the heat.It’s very affordable at 59.75Php for a 0.70 oz/20g tube. Also available in sachets if you want something more economical and easier on the pocket

There’s  a lot of branded lotions out in the market that are giving the same attack for cunsumers but there’s this one product that im sure of what it can give best results to any skin types. The Skin White Advanced whitenning Lotion Power whitening with SPF 20, it clinically proven to whiten my skin in just a week.I definitely recommend it!

Image

I use Avon BB cream with SPF 20.I use this product under my eyes and on any blemishes or problem areas. I’ve never had a problem with this concealer creasing and it lasts for a pretty long time!

Image

This is one of the major products from Garnier that I love. I use Garnier Multi – Action whitening cream in the Morning, i love this product because it makes my skin achieve complete fairness and Garnier Overnight whitening peeling cream everynight, my skin is fresh in the morning and my skin becomes fairer in 28 days and dark spots are reduced.

Image

Wet Ones® Vitamin E & Aloe Hands and Face Wipes Travel Pack is ideal for taking on-the-go. Specially now that i’m working it’s perfect for quick clean-ups when soap andwater are not available. I use it anytime and anywhere.it’s easy for me to always have this in my purse or pocket.

This season is about enjoying the outdoors. Summer has and always been high time for kids and grown ups alike. Whether your in sports,or looking to relax and unwind to beaches, expect the season to be nothing less than fun all around That is why this sun protection expert is doing whatever it takes to get the young and the young at heart to go outside to enjoy some summer fun. I love using Banana Boat Sun Screen Lotions because it makes use against sunburn using its advanced UVB protection and against long term skin damage with its improved UVA protection which lasts longer than ordinary solutions. Their line of sunscreen lotions also includes the Banana Boat Ultra Protect SPF-50 and Banana Boat Sports SPF-110, designed for active users (like me) because of its non-greasy, sweat and water resistant protection. And for my little boy he use The Banana Boat Kids SPF-50, ensures a mild and gentle, tear free protection for our little ones.

Micronutrient Deficiency in PH: When the smallest matters most

Image

More and more Filipino schoolchildren suffer from inadequate nutrition

By their very name, micronutrients are vitamins and minerals that are needed only in very small amounts, but their impact on our health is huge.

 Micronutrients like iron, zinc, Vitamin A, and many others are responsible for the vital functioning of our body’s systems, from physical growth and vision, to brain vigor and increased immunity. When the body fails to receive the small quantities of micronutrients that it needs, serious health problems can result in a condition widely regarded as micronutrient deficiency or “hidden hunger”.

 The nutritional makeup of the Philippines continues to be characterized by the severity of micronutrient deficiency. According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute- Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST), 70-90 percent of Filipinos lack iron and Vitamin A in their usual diet.

 Two out of ten schoolchildren suffer from iron deficiency anemia, and the incident rises with age. Following closely are those lacking adequate amounts of Vitamin A in their diet.  One out of ten from the same group is Vitamin A deficient.

 The same study also shows that two out of ten children are zinc deficient. Zinc is a trace mineral that plays a role in body metabolism, reproductive health, immune function, and more than 200 important chemical reactions in the body.

 Inadequate intake of these three important micronutrients may lead to several nutritional problems, including stunting, fatigue, poor concentration, lack of focus and other signs of impaired physical and cognitive development. These may be reflected among schoolchildren who suffer from poor mental and physical performance and frequent absenteeism as a result of impaired immunity. It is also important to have plenty of Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that boosts immunity, prevents cardiovascular disease, and contributes to healthy skin, among many other benefits.

“Making the right food choices is one of the ways to address the problems of micronutrient deficiency,” said Dr. Imelda Agdeppa, Assistant Scientist of FNRI-DOST. “Unfortunately, the inaccessibility of food and money in the majority of Filipino households puts many families at a high risk of getting sick. The good news is there are many products in the market that are affordable and fortified with these micronutrients, and many families are already benefiting from these.”

 Experts from FNRI recommend that when there is an inadequate intake of these nutrients, the consumption of foods that are fortified particularly with the three micronutrients primarily lacking in the Filipino diet—Vitamin A, Iron, and Zinc—is  encouraged so as to address nutrient gap.

 In response to this dietary concern, Nestlé Philippines is intensifying its campaign to promote nutritious and affordable sources of important nutrients especially needed by children, such as BEAR BRAND Powdered Milk Drink. It is fortified with tibay resistensya nutrients like Iron, Zinc, and Vitamin C plus Calcium that kids need for proper growth and to perform well in school.
