We all need skin care treatment one way or another. Especially for people like us who travel a lot. We get to be exposed to the sun more often. And it’s no secret that the sun is one cause for skin to prematurely age, be damaged or worse, cause skin cancer. I may not have a flawless skin. I even have lots of pimple scars and oily skin. But I do know the need for basic skin care and once in a while, I do visit my derm clinic. Recently I was referred by a friend to try Centro Estetico by Dr H in Timog Quezon City. Yes, that’s a long way from Pasig but they do have treatments worth paying a visit for. Like their new HydraFacial and RevLite Laser.
Yoga practitioners and enthusiast in Makati have another option for a place to practice. YogaHive, just in front of the Salcedo Park in Makati was formerly Beyond Yoga until the owners decided to discontinue with the franchise and make a brand of their own. YogaHive was formally launched a month ago (April 2017) with a week-long open house classes for everyone to try. I got to attend a few classes then just to get a feel of their studio, teachers and their sense of community.
Growing up, I had been introduced to the many benefits of Coconut Oil. I remember our mom would cook coconut to extract the oil for personal use. While I munch on what’s left of the fried coconut, my mom would use the coconut oil for my sisters’ hairs and even skin. She said it makes them shiny, thick, strong and soft aside from treating the scalp for dandruff. I also encountered how a local tribe in Kalinga use it as antiseptic to treat wounds. Even the famous Whang-Od applied coconut oil to treat my fresh tattoo wounds. Coconut oil seems to be quite a wonder that’s why I was thrilled to receive a package from ProSource Philippines with a sample of their products, the Virgin Coconut Oil, the Calming Oil, and the Virgin Coconut Soap with aloe vera.
