DS Whitening Services

Having milky white skin gives a person unspeakable advantages. It can improve one’s confidence and self-esteem. In our country, white is synonymous to beauty. Filipinas today desire to get whiter skin but not to look exactly like Caucasians. We are already proud of our Asian features, all we want is to improve and enhance them. What we all want and are obsessed with, is having fair skin; but are all skin whitening treatments safe, particularly on prolonged usage? The answer is NO, because there are certain bleaching preparations available in the market which may cause harmful effects on the skin. The most common of which, are the Irritant Contact Dermatitis and Ochronosis.

DS Whitening Kit

Irritant Contact Dermatitis is a skin condition caused by direct chemical injury to the skin causing skin rashes and severe itchiness, while Ochronosis is a pigmentary disorder of the skin caused by prolonged use of creams containing Hydroquinone and Mercury.

Hydroquinone, when used over a long period of time, can cause Exogenous Ochronosis (where skin turns bluish or black). While it is true that it is an effective skin whitening compound because it inhibits the production of melanin to cause the whitening of skin color, it can also damage our pigment cells when improperly used.

Mercury, on the other hand, particularly the ammoniated type, which is the most common in Chinese bleaching cream preparations, may cause Ochronosis even in very low concentration if used for a longer period of time. Its cumulative effect may damage the kidneys or even cause neurological effects.

Diana Stalder offers a variety of skin whitening preparations and kits which have undergone clinical trials and studies to address the pigmentary skin problems without causing untoward effects to the skin and assuring the consumers of its safety.

Different Whitening Active Ingredients

  1. Tyrostat is a strong inhibitor of tyrosinase enzymatic activity, one of the main enzymes involved in the pigmentation process. It has higher activity than arbutin, turmeric, and hydroquinone and with no unwanted side effects. It safely reduces skin pigmentation and erythema by limiting both melanin production and skin reddening for an even skin complexion.
  2. Beta arbutin is a superb ingredient produced from the bearberry leaves, cranberry, and blueberry. Its primary goal is to prevent tyrosinase production in the body.
  3. Glutathione is really a pioneer in whitening systems. It is often found in soaps, ointments, lotions, creams and in pills. Its antioxidant properties help you to get whiter skin.
  4. Licorice is a great ingredient for skin whitening purpose and well-known for its special ability to suppress tyrosinase (melanin production catalyst) production. The substance has anti-inflammatory components, hence can lessen sunburn effects.
  5. Kojic acid suppresses enzyme tyrosinase production in the body and impede melanin formation. With this, skin whitening is guaranteed. Primarily, kojic acid is produced from the mushroom family, the same fermented by-product used to produce ‘rice wines’.

Body Whitening Scrub is the combination of body scrub and bleaching. Hence, the procedure will provide even colored, glowing and health-looking skin.

In order to achieve a skin that is white as snow, here are some examples of food that you should include in your meals as these can boost skin whitening. These are dairy products (i.e, milk and yogurt), fresh fruits (i.e, lemon, orange, apple, banana, papaya, berries, and kiwi), oatmeal, soybean, almond, aloe vera, sea weeds, potato, beetroot, pumpkin, green tea and dark chocolate. On the other hand, foods that you need to limit intake are cantaloupe, mango, peach, spinach, kale, sweet potato, olive oil, broccoli, and red bell pepper since they are known to affect skin pigmentation thereby causes skin tanning.

How Should You Update Your Address With IRS? What Is the Process?

You might wonder what to do if your business changes address after you register for your EIN. The IRS makes the process easy, with just a single form to notify them. You do not need to reapply for an EIN, nor do you have to worry about dissolving the old corporate structure and reincorporating as a new entity, the way you would if you were changing business structures.

Introducing Form 8822

All you need to do to notify the IRS is fill out Form 8822, which is simple and designed for those businesses who have already received an EIN and filed a tax return at least once. After submitting that form, you should receive confirmation from the IRS of your new address. For extra assurance that you are receiving all IRS communications, make sure you do the following when you move: (more…)

5 Tips to Replacing Your Social Security Card

Your Social Security number is attached to most of your personal and financial records. So losing your Social Security card is a very frightening experience. Even if you lose it, you might think that you’re okay because you can recite the number without a moment’s thought. But it is always important to have your card. This is because any employer may request it, or you want to use it for other reasons such as opening a bank account. In most cases, people safely store these cards until the next time someone asks for it. But what do you do when you have overturned your whole house, and you still cannot find it?

Technological advancements over the years have made the process of getting a replacement card quite simple. Most states in the United States require only your state ID, driver’s license or passport to apply for one. These are documents which can be used to authenticate your identity. However, it is essential to note that there are limits for card replacement. In a year, you are allowed to replace it up to three times. The maximum limit in your lifetime is ten times. After this, the regulations for replacement become stricter. This is why you must always be very careful when handling your Social Security card. In the event of misplacement or loss, you can follow the tips below to replace your card: (more…)

The perfect woman deserves to look good, feel great

There are so many Mother’s Day tributes out there but one stood out from the rest.

The video talks about how unaware most moms are about how their children see them—brave, selfless, caring and responsible.

Moms are often hard on themselves; completely unaware that to their children, husbands and loved ones, they are perfect. A mother may describe the perfect woman as “loving and caring” when, in fact, that is she(more…)

Turn that Junk Room into a Man Cave!

If you’re tired of your living room turning into a sports venue every weekend maybe it’s time to do something about it! With a bit of paint, elbow grease, and ingenuity you can turn a spare room into a man cave and move the team there whenever there’s a big game. Here are some tips for doing just that.

First of all, if you don’t have a spare room get creative. A basement or garage can work just as well, you’ll just need to add insulation and perhaps paneling. The main idea is to have a big enough space for an extra sofa and a chair or two because the only other furniture you’ll need is side tables and a TV. Of course, you’ll want to add some team decorations when you’re done, and a trip to the local fabric store or a visit to NFL Shop can take care of the decoration details!

First of all, empty the room. Then you’re free to paint the walls the color of your choice; either team colors or a neutral shade you can later decorate. The main idea is to have a clean slate and add details as you go.

For furniture, as mentioned above you’ll just need basic seating. A dorm fridge is a good addition and in a pinch can be used to hold the TV. Ideally you’ll want to mount the TV on the wall though so it’s easy to see from every seat.

If you have kids or teens you might want to get a couple of team beanbag chairs; if your favorite fan likes to entertain you can add a bar and stools. With a NFL Shop coupon you can add throws, glasses, and wall décor; if you follow more than one team you can dedicate one wall to each team.

As a bonus, if your kids participate in sports your man cave is the perfect place to display their trophies. That way they’ll feel like one of the gang when it comes to game day!
