The holidays are finally here and like me, you are probably spending it the way you want it to be—fun, fun, and loads of fun with friends or family! Wolfing down favorite holiday treats like puto bumbong, bibingka, tsokolate, lechon to name a few (like you never grow an inch) and getting into the swing of things—endless get-togethers and reunions with friends and relatives that often last till the wee hours of the morning. But wait, breakouts don’t have holidays (gasp!).
Just this morning, I woke with big zits all over my face and it got me thinking. All these holiday food and late night bondings are definitely doing my tummy and heart good BUT my skin isn’t liking them one bit!

Women’s beauty regimen are often deemed complicated by many with all the elements that come with it. We go through all the trouble of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing because we want to ensure that our beauty comes out in all its majestic glory. But really, when you think about it, it all boils down to having a healthy attitude and lifestyle. A well-balanced diet, positive disposition, sound fitness plan, and ample sleep and resting time make a big difference.
Having the right product in your beauty regimen counts a lot too. For us with acne prone skin, that is Proactiv Solution. Here are some healthy and practical tips from our well loved brand Proactiv Solution that might help you achieve that radiant and beautiful skin:
Make sure to have clean hands before washing or touching any part of your face. Remove any trace of makeup and dampen skin with lukewarm water. Some use hot water to clean their faces thinking it might help kill bacteria. If anything, this will just increase the blood flow in your head making your face turn red. Also, hot water won’t open your pores, and neither would cold water close them. Pores appearance depends on the amount of oil, dirt, and dead skin that have accumulated in them.
Keep exfoliating. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells. Proactiv Solution’s exfoliating beads aid in shedding those dead cells and prepare your skin for any medication that will be applied.
Never scrub. Exfoliation is different from scrubbing. While exfoliation gently removal dead skin cells, scrubbing is its violent counterpart. It won’t rid you of acne but instead create small skin tear that will make you more prone to infection and inflammation.
Use a mild cleanser. Cleansers with strong alcohol content remove the skin’s natural oil and moisture making it drier which results all the more to an increase in oil production.
Avoid pricking your pimples. Spot treatment on areas marked with acne won’t work either. Instead of pricking, pick a proper treatment that would work for you. Proactiv Solution is your best bet. When consistently applied, Proactiv Solution works without fail.
Good thing it is here to stay to help solve Filipinos’ perennial skin problems such as acne. Proactiv Solution uses a 3-Step system that can help you achieve that clear, healthy, and glowing skin. Complete your daily beauty regimen with Proactiv Solution and in no time, you will have that beautifully radiant skin you have always wanted.
The three step Proactiv Solution kit is available in all Watson or SM Department Store nationwide. Price is at Php 2,495 for the 30-day kit and Php 3,995 for the 60-day kit.
A friend told me the other day, “Oh in the end you will fall for that din pala. Sa dami ng tinanggihan mong alternative treatment sa cancer, dyan din pala bagsak mo.” My dear, my stand regarding cancer treatment is still the same. I continue to trust and follow whatever treatment and medication Bianca’s doctor deem best for her. I haven’t abandoned Science, for this same Science has kept Bianca’s health stable all these years. What attracted me to essential oils is the fact that it never asserted itself as something that can replace Bianca’s current treatment and management for her Thyroid cancer. If anything, it only promises to make her, and my family, feel good which in essence is what makes any Science based cancer treatment effective as well.
Eversince we’ve used essential oils, we’ve managed to significantly reduce Bianca’s dependency on chemical drugs for minor health issues such as cough, colds, asthma, allergic rhinitis, migraine, pain, and dysmennhorea. It has also helped boost her immune system and manage her energy and stress levels. She’s been through a lot of medical procedures and huge amount of chemical drugs have gone through her system. When you come accross something safe, aromatic, and topical but gives the same relief as chemical drugs based on experience and research data, won’t you embrace it as well?
Again, we have not traded Science for “chance.” I still have complete confidence that it will heal my child, but then, I also believe that these essential oils whose benefits and use can be traced back to as early as 4500 BC can also improve the general well-being of my child. The three wisemen had a good enough reason for gifting Baby Jesus the essential oils, Frankincense and Myrr. They were clearly on to something when they did that. I guess I’ll take my cue from them, they aren’t called wise men for nothing. Anything spritual, you have me. 🙏😌

Our campaign with Mr. Alden Richards for SnowCaps Glutathione. Beauty from within. Never in my wildest dream did I imagine myself doing this, but thanks to Comm& Sense’s nice concept and good advocacy, I dared say YES. My daughter and I are living proofs that God indeed takes care of his widow and orphans.
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. This trued and tested brand is composed of several products developed by top international dermatologists.
If you want to try out this amazing brand, it usavailable at any Watsons and SM Department Stores. Proactiv has a 30-Day kit (Php 2,495) for first time users who wish to try the product and a 60-Day kit (Php 3,995) for those who have been enjoying Proactiv’s many benefits. What’s great about this product is that it offers a money-back guarantee. Do check it out.
Mindful Mom Re-Treat makes a comeback next month on September 16, Saturday, 8:30 to 11:30 AM, at Makati Diamond Residences.
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. I am hoping that in this territorial dispute (my face, my territory) with acne, my pimples have finally surrendered on me.
Thank God for effective, Proactiv Solution, clear skin is just a beauty counter away. Proactiv Solution’s acne clearing system has garnered a loyal following in the country since it’s successful release in the local market. It’s proven effectiveness in elimanting even the most stubborn pimples has made it the go to brand of people with acne.
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!
Great isn’t it?

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.
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.
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.
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.
In case you are interested to catch its May run this year, simply follow Mommy Mundo to get heads up on its latest schedule. Hope to see you there.????
