Everyone needs a little pampering once in awhile, and if you’re looking for an outlet, a trip to the spa will soothe the body and rejuvenate the soul. But how can you tell the good spas from the merely average? Here are four things to look for the next time you need a taste of luxury.
1. Assorted Treatments
Though every spa will offer different therapies and body treatments, they should always form a long list. From aromatherapy baths to exotic facials and skin peels, it’s important that a spa provides total body service for a variety of needs.
2. Certified Staff
Masseuses should be licensed by the state or certified by the National Certification Board of Massage Therapy (NCETMB). Acupuncturists should be regionally trained and accredited. Don’t put your aching body into the hands of people without skills and experience.
3. White Glove Service
Does the staff take your coat at the door? Do they offer free drinks while you’re soaking in the jacuzzi? The whole point of a spa visit is to feel like a million bucks, which isn’t easily accomplished if the staff is discourteous or inattentive.
The sign of a truly accommodating spa is one that caters to a bad economy. Look for establishments like the GiGi Salon Spa that offers deals, discounts and coupon savings for both new and repeat customers.
These are just four ways to determine the quality of a spa. Use them wisely in order to find a great facility near you!

It is a blessing that I took after my folks’ good genes when it came to my skin not being prone to acne or pimples. Sure, breakouts happen from time to time but no more than thrice in a year. And most of them are either triggered by sleepless nights or a facial bump that got irritated because I can’t keep my hands off of it.
However, for some girls, especially those in their teenage years, the battle with acne can be long, traumatic and difficult. In some cases, it even leaves long-lasting marks and skin damage. While moisturizers, toners, and other beauty products can help clean, soften and clear up skin, sometimes acne scar treatments may be necessary to address such problems.
Truth be told, a handful lot of acne treatments have introduced themselves in the market, but the question has always been which is one really works. For some years now, benzoyl peroxide has been proven to be the gold standard for treating mild to moderate acne. Proactiv knows this to be true. In a form of topical antimicrobial medicine, an oxidizing agent that specifically kills P. acnes, the bacteria that cause acne breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide also helps to unblock pores and has an anti-inflammatory effect.
Benzoyl Peroxide, unlike some acne treatments, is not an antibiotic. In its 50 years of effective use for treatment, there has been no case of its bacterial resistance. Meaning, this is safe to use.

Whether we are shooting to have our beauty last or maintain a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition should always be a priority. I had the privilege to listen to a talk by Dra. Marianna Sioson, a medical nutrition physician and Dr. Rodolfo Dimaano, Medical Director of Abbott Nutrition Philippines last week on a new study that demonstrates oral nutrition supplements are associated with significant reductions in length of hospital stay and cost.
A new health economics outcomes study, conducted by leading health economists and supported by Abbott, found that oral nutritional supplements provided to patients during hospitalization are associated with significant reductions in length of stay and hospitalization cost. Additionally, the 30-day readmission risk was significantly reduced for patients with at least one known subsequent readmission.
The ″Impact of Oral Nutritional Supplementation on Hospital Outcomes” study is a retrospective data analysis on the effect of oral nutritional supplements on hospital economic outcomes. The study compared hospital stays where oral nutritional supplements were provided with similar hospital stays that did not provide oral nutritional supplements. The difference between length of hospital stay and cost of treatment (including supplies, labor, depreciation of equipment, etc.) were measured.

As I have previously announced last April, Wen Cleansing Conditioner is officially out in the market. Yay! Gotta love SLS/SLES-Free Shampoos, or for this matter, Cleansing Conditioner, which is essentially similar to what we got used to calling Shampoo and Conditioner in one. But then again, Wen is a league entirely different since this is the kick-ass type, with its 5-in-1 formula that includes:
- Deep Conditioner
- Leave-in Conditioner
Our Wen Cleansing Conditioner just claimed its rightful spot on our tub.
Wen Cleansing Conditioner Pomegranate right off the box
It is a good thing that ever since I started making my own Castile Soap and Shampoo, I have kinda sorta psyched my family to not fall dependent on the fallacy that lather translates to cleansing. Truth be told, lather almost always equals to harsh ingredients. I kid you not! The stripping of our hairs natural oils is what our usual commercial shampoos do. Wen Cleansing Conditioner does not merely do deep conditioning and all the nice things to your hair, it also keeps the hair color intact.

A BB Cream for only P99 a tube? Now, this for me makes Myra VitaGlow BB Cream is check out-worthy. I have tried a handful of BB Cream brands and have yet to find one this affordable. I have learned a long time ago that more affordable does not necessarily translate to low quality. In fact, a whole bunch of affordable brands can very well compete with contemporaries that are sold several times more.
Don’t you just love personalized stuff? I love my Myra VitaGlow BB Cream Travel Makeup Kit. Thank you, Myra for sending this.
What’s I love about Myra VitaGlow BB Cream:
1. I love that Myra VitaGlow BB Cream is lightweight and moisturizing enough, it keeps my skin hydrated.
2. Vitamin E. The kick beauty products get when it contains Vitamin E, will always be a plus. Vitamin E keep the skin younger looking and healthy.
3. VitaGlow BB Cream doubles a foundation. Not full coverage all right. But good for everyday use. It comes in Ivory and Beige.
