Beat Acne With Proactiv

Filipinos are very particular about the types of products they use on their skin. They like to research about various brands and in their quest for that one product that works best for their skin type, they aren’t afraid to try different ones. Trust me, I know! I cannot count the number of times I did so, hoping against hope each time that it is “THE ONE” that would miraculously transform my skin from flawed to flawless.

Everyone wants to have that, flawless skin, but then, we Filipinos most specially, are forever haunted by pimples. Indeed those little bumps can make or break one’s confidence. In fact, it has been identified as one of the root causes of insecurity among teens. Add to the fact that they are hormonal, pimples are what makes them stay at home and withdraw from any social interaction.

Good news is, America’s #1 acne treatment system has been around to help Filipinos with pimple problems regain their confidence. The 3 Step Proactiv Solution clears problematic spots and prevents acne before it starts giving users fresh-looking and blemish-free skin.

Take An Afternoon For Yourself at the Mindful Mom Re-Treat this September 16!

Mindful Mom Re-Treat makes a comeback next month on September 16, Saturday, 8:30 to 11:30 AM, at Makati Diamond Residences.
image
While it’s almost second nature for moms to help others, it takes a little prodding for them to care for themselves. At the Mindful Mom Re-Treat, moms have a few hours not only to enjoy the company of other mothers but also to delve into their present priorities, past issues, and future goals. It’s going to be a physically, mentally, and spiritually refreshing day as moms take the time to rediscover and re-center themselves. Facilitating the re-treat is Michele S. Alignay, MA, Registered Family Psychologist and mom of two.
We will also be joined by The Oil Natural Project who will be doing a quick talk on the benefits of essential oils in living mindfully and will have samples for you to try.
Sponsored by Belo Baby, PLDT Home & Goodbag, the retreat is a takeoff from Mommy Mundo’s award-winning Mom Manifesto campaign in 2015. It was conceptualized and created by Mommy Mundo Founder Janice Villanueva, in collaboration with Alignay and Mommy Mundo Content Head Jing Lejano.

My struggle with acne has finally reached its tail end…well, I think and I really hope that this is finally it this time. So far no major pimple breakout for the past one and a half months.

Proactiv Solution’s acne clearing system has garnered a loyal following in the country since it’s successful release in the local market.

I know for a fact that Filipinos are pretty discerning when it comes to beauty choices. I guess, what made this U.S. brand so popular here is their collection of products that complements the skin care needs of Filipinos struggling with acne and blemishes. Each item in the Proactiv kit is designed and developed to treat even the most stubborn, problematic spots. In fact, it actually stops the growth of acne even before it starts!

Mindful Mom Retreat: Find Your Flow

Last Saturday, January 28, I attended the fifth Mindful Mom Retreat at Earth Kitchen in Bonifacio Global City. I personally think this is a good way to jumpstart 2017 that is why I made sure not to miss this one.
An offline version of Mommy Mundo’s award winning Mom Manisfesto Campaign, the Mindful Mom Retreat uses modules to guide moms to uncover and (re)discover their purpose and passion so they could live better, fuller lives, and parent more intentionally. It is especially designed to equip moms with tools that would help them be more mindful and conscious of their thoughts and actions.
image
This retreat is facilitated by Michele “Ichel” Alignay, Registered Family Psychologist and co-founder of the Mom Manifesto Campaign. An expert when it comes to creating an open and inviting atmosphere, Ichel always manages to keep things light and fun. Main reason why moms who attend this retreat are never shy to share and participate in the well crafted activities and insightful discussions that have become the trademark of Mommy Mundo Parenting Events. Since participants receive a lot of support and encouragement in this retreat, they always come home re-fresh, re-energize, and re-centered to their mommy mission.
image
And true enough, after sitting for three delightful hours listening to Ichel lead and facilitate the discussion on finding one’s flow (your strength) instead of one’s flaws (your limitations), of focusing and harnessing one’s strengths instead of one’s weaknesses as a woman, I felt truly empowered and affirmed. I must admit, I spent a significant part of my life as a mother trying to overcome, to no avail, my weaknesses until I simply just quit trying because truth to tell, I don’t really have the knack for them baking, cooking, Math, and even breastfeeding. Ichel’s fresh take on self-improvement made me feel truly good inside. It drove away any guilt feelings I have for delegating such tasks to the other members of the household and made me stop feeling like a total failure in the motherhood department also. It made see that if I just take the time to acknowledge the skills and talents that I have, I would realize just how much I can (still) share and give despite my limitations. It completely drove this point straight to my heart as well: I do not really need to be a perfect mom, just a mindful mom who deliberately and consistently work on improving myself for the better through constant and mindful reflection (self-check, visioning, goal-setting) and action.
image
There is definitely a lot to learn from this retreat. But perhaps the most valuable lesson I got from this Mindful Mom gathering is this, to live a life of meaning and purpose, one must always take the time to recharge, reflect, and re-center. The Mindful Mom Retreat I tell you, is the perfect venue for that.

Too much exposure to mobile phone heat, not good for the skin 

I am sure most of you will agree with me when I say, cellphone is that one thing that we can’t live without nowadays. Our whole life practically depends on it. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating here a bit but lets admit it, there’s some truth to what I am saying. To prove my point, what’s the first and last thing you do everyday?! Of course, check your cellphone. See. 
While cellphone was created primarily for communication, it didn’t take long before they added applications and other features that allow us to do more with it. Now we don’t just use it for calls, we use it to get information, run our businesses, and even entertain ourselves.
While its true that cellular phones have given us the power to do things with just a swipe or touch of our fingertips, did you know that the constant use of mobile phones especially for taking selfies, can cause our skin more harm than good. Studies show that the heat coming from mobile phones promote a number of antigens that could cause moderate to severe allergic reactions especially to those with long standing history of allergies. The heat from cellphones when combined with the metals, nickel and cobalt in the phone trimmings can cause the skin to turn red and itchy. When such skin irritation occur, acne and blemishes (may) soon follow. The dirt and bacteria that accumulate in our cellphone can also get in contact with our skin and mix with the sweat and oil in our face. Once they get trapped in our pores, they too can cause breakouts. 
Luckily, America’s #1 acne treatment, Proactiv Solution, has a 3-Step System that is dermatologically developed and designed to help clear existing acne and prevent future breakouts. Proactiv 3-Step System guarantees smooth, flawless skin that is always selfie-ready. Absolute no need for filters before posting it online (*wink*).
Proactiv’s 3-Step System starts with the application of the Renewing Cleanser which contains Benzoyl Peroxide that helps kill acne-causing bacteria. These ultra-fine, micro-crystal BPO penetrates pores fast while being gentle on the skin. These exfoliating beads also help unclog the pores of impurities such as excess sebum, keratin, and dead skin cells. The Proactiv Revitalizing Toner which refines and purifies pores through gentle exfoliation, on the other hand, contains soothing botanicals that gently remove excess oil for a more refreshed and clearer skin while the Repairing Lotion helps heal breakouts and prevent new ones from forming. 
Each Proactiv kit comes with a free Refining Mask that helps keep skin clear and acne-free. Formulated with sulfur, this proven acne-fighting ingredient, reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin. It unclogs pores, pampers inflamed skin, and softens the skin’s texture.
Nothing beats natural remedies of course. Taking a break from long heat exposure from mobile phones will definitely improve our overall skin health. Trimming down hours of phone calls to a minimum, lessening the amount of time spent on playing games on the phone, and taking a few selfies in a day can go a long way in improving the condition of our skin. With these natural remedies plus Proactiv’s 3 Step-Systtem, we are guranteed a blemish free skin that is simply selfie perfect.

Adam Levine's Proactiv TV Commercial


Lead singer, Adam Levine of the Grammy Award-winning band, Maroon 5, made quite a name for himself in the music scene with his signature hot looks and superb singing voice. But did you know that he who was voted “Sexiest Man Alive” last 2013 also struggled with acne breakouts during his teenage years?
Many envy Adam for his undeniable charm and charisma but just like any normal teenager, he suffered acne and lacked self-confidence too. Surprisingly for someone who looked so natural in the front of the camera, he once stayed away from the crowd due to this worsening skin problem. Shares Adam, “People might think that nothing fazes me but that’s just not true. Nobody is proud of having acne. It isn’t fun. In fact, it sucks. I suffered from acne when I was younger which made me so insecure. It was not a pleasant experience. ”
Fortunately, America’s #1 acne treatment system, Proactiv Solution, became the answer to his pressing concern. Proactiv’s 3-Step System is developed by dermatologist. It is designed to help clear existing acne and prevent future outbreaks while gently caring for your skin.
Adds Adam, “So if your acne is your problem, the solution is Proactiv, bottomline. I know how important it is to get acne out of your life. Proactiv helped me. It’s no brainer. Just do it because you’ll be very happy. It is great that there is something out there now that is legitimate.”
Now with clear skin, Adam Levine no longer feels the need to hide. Says Adam, “It is a game changer. It treats acne and your skin right. As a guy, I don’t like to put a lot of acne products but with Proactiv, it is just three easy steps. That’s all you need to do.”
Here’s Adam Levine’s Proactiv commercial:

Proactiv Solution comes in 30-Day kit (P2,495) and 60-Day kit (P3,995). It is available in all Watsons stores nationwide.

Iflin Baby Products

During the Mommy Mundo Expo Mom here in the South last weekend, I realized, there are just so many nice baby products in the market today, its no wonder Mommy Mundo Expo Mom is always an instant hit! I chanced upon one that made me wish I’m a mom of an infant again. I am talking about Iflin Baby Bamboo Muslin Products from Thailand which Iflin Baby PH carry here in the Philippines. Their products are all made of 70% silky soft bamboo fiber and 30% natural cotton.
You probably might be wondering, why bamboo? Well, it turns out, bamboo is gentle & softer than cotton and great for baby skin. It is also breathable, absorbent, anti-bacterial, sustainable, and environmental friendly.
Here are the five Iflin products available in the Philippines:
My Cozy Bamboo Blanket SRP: Php 2,195.00 (1 pc/box)

This might be the cuddliest blanket your baby will ever have since it is made up of double layers of silky soft bamboo muslin with extra soft padding in the middle.

This can be used as stroller and car seat blankey, on-the-go-pillow (just fold it and place under baby’s head), nursing cover (simply snap it around your neck), diaper, tummy-time, play, changing, or picnic pad, and stroller canopy/sunshield.

This is designed to be a cross body burp cloth. Its unique semi-circle shape provides maximum coverage from your shoulder to your chest and elbow. The snap buttons ensure that it stays in place and don’t fall off your shoulder.

Its smart design also makes it more than just a burp cloth. It allows for a more private comfortable space for on-the-go breastfeeding since it can be used as a 360 degree nursing cover by opening it up and putting it over your head. It can function as a crossbody burp cloth, nursing cover, and diaper changing pad.

This multifunction washcloth can be snapped easily in your bag/diaper bag. It can clean up all kinds of little mess in no time. It can also serve as napkin during mealtimes, washcloth for fever or during bath time, cleaning cloth for baby’s hands, face and drool, and handkerchief for kids.
My Favorite Bamboo Muslin SRP: Php1800.00 (4 pcs/box)

image
This versatile cloth with its feathery softness makes it a diaper bag essential. It can be used as a cleaning cloth for baby’s hands, face, and mouth, towel for unexpected baths, burp cloth, stroller blanket, car seat blanket, stroller liner, stroller canopy or a sunshield, diaper changing, nap, tummy time, or play pad. It can be anything you need it to be.
My Style Bamboo Burp and Bib SRP: Php1,650.00 (2 pcs/box)
image
It features double layers of silky soft bamboo muslin with extra soft padding in the middle. The maximum softness it provides allows your baby to rest her little head comfortably on your shoulder (won’t fall off your shoulders as well). This smart and stylish burp cloth goes well with any of your outfit.
