Christmas Season is a glorious thing, a time for thanksgiving, celebration, and the ripe month to fully enjoy the fruits of your labor. And just because you think your 13th month pay and bonus are just a cherry on top, these hard-earned cash deserves to be saved and spent well on things with lasting impact on your health and sanity.

With this in mind, let these 5 must-do lists from Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liners’ OB-Gyn Faith Suluen serve as your guide to encourage you to make time and set aside a budget for these screenings.

1. Pap Smear and Pelvic Exam

Since it’s the quick screening test/procedure and the gold standard that detects precancerous or cancerous cells from papillomavirus or HPV, it’s essential to catch early any possible abnormal growth whether you’re sexually active by age 21 or the disease runs in the family. If you haven’t had a cervical vaccination, don’t hesitate to talk to your OB-Gyn or employer/health card provider to check if it’s part of your package, which according to Dr. Faith, is especially advantageous for women without a prior sexual contact.

Diana Stalder’s DermaLift: Advanced Anti-Aging Technology

It was when I turned 40 in September that I started noticing what used to be fine lines, begin to look more prominent than I would want my random facial lines to be. Then my husband dragged me to potential places where we can have our renewal of vows done on our 15th anniversary – it could have easily set me on to panic mode.

It was right around that time when I first tried Diana Stalder’s Dermalift. I haven’t tried anything like it before, so I really didn’t know what to expect. All I knew was I was set to look my best on our renewal of vows but there is no way I am going to do anything drastic or invasive.

According to the study done by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, it was revealed that 92% of the subjects’ hands and 82% of their smartphones had bacteria on them.
