I have a little confession to make .. I am stingy. I hate to spend so much on everything! So wherever I can save, I’ll stick to it. That includes shopping, eating out, even self-pampering. I see to it that I get the best deals but of course not compromising quality. Speaking of self-pampering, skin care included. I admit, I do a lot of DIYs when it comes to skin care, and that includes waxing my Underarm. At some point, I find it okay but then later on, I find it really tedious and ineffective. I remember one time, I ended up burning parts of my underarms (I was using hot wax), imagine the misery! I tried of course using cold wax after that incident, but I had little success as well. I would end up sucking up that prickly feeling as I try to strip off the seem stubborn underarms hair. I therefore concluded, my attempt to DIY the waxing is time consuming, tedious, and painful! Okay, so we know us women have incredibly high pain thresholds (hello, childbirth? high heels?), but doesn’t mean we will have to endure some pains when we can actually do something about it and go pain free! So I gave up! Thank God I found a place to get the job done and raise my arms confidently and pain free! I switched to Hey Sugar.
Waxing doesn’t have to be painful as you imagine, or as you do it yourself :D. It’s a matter of knowing where to go and what waxing method to choose.
In the spirit of this year’s National Hair Free Day, Hey Sugar is letting you in on a secret – sugar waxing is a nearly pain-free way of dealing with unwanted hair.
So you’ve got your festive outfit set and the fancy gift wrapped for your “monito” or “monita”. All that’s left undone is a party season-perfect hairstyle.
The fresh out of the shower look can be seductive yet temporary. Blame it to tropical climate, it can spoil your appearance, besides making you feel sweaty and stale. The heat and humidity brought about by extreme weather condition, likewise, dries out the locks easily and make it more fragile.
Adding damage to your delicate strands are the chemical contents of various products on hand. From shampoo to conditioner and hair treatment, down to styling goods to groom it to your liking, their harsh synthetic materials jeopardize the natural oil and luster of your mane.
Because you are what you eat, the fate of your crowning glory is in the plate. Your diet must have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to become shiny and strong. So don’t overindulge, especially this time of the year when gastronomic feasts are spread almost everywhere you go. Be careful on what you take in, thinking that it’s also what you feed your ‘do.
Even stress can wear off the beauty and health of the tress. And that’s exactly what you should avoid this Yuletide season. Never put pressure on yourself just to please everyone. Just take it easy, let your hair down and party all night long.
About one-third of elementary public school students in the Philippines suffer from head lice-related problems. Head lice infestation or pediculosis can cause severe itchiness and infection of the scalp, but this could be the least of these children’s worries; the social stigma associated with having kuto can leave lasting psychological damage on both children and their parents.
A survey of communities visited by the Licealiz caravan last year found that 47% of respondents from Visayas and 76% of respondents from Mindanao said that their children were bullied and teased for having head lice, causing some of them to miss school to avoid their peers. The parents, on the other hand, feel incompetent and embarrassed for being unable to prevent head lice from infesting their children.
In response to this, Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo launched Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as a part of its Kilusang Kontra Kuto effort to educate the public on lice infestation issues. The caravan was launched in partnership with the Department of Education, University of the Philippines Manila College of Public Health and Mommy Bloggers Philippines with the goal of traveling to different schools and barangays all over the country to hold shampooing programs and lectures for students and their parents.
Lamoiyan Corporation is set to end the year with 30 public schools visited and over 8,000 children shampooed.
