NuSkin's AgeLOC LumiSpa

Nu Skin’s ageLOC LumiSpa’s  exclusive skin movement technology now works as a targeted treatment for the eye area 




Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. today announced the Philippine launch of ageLOC LumiSpa Accent and ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes, a new targeted treatment that harnesses the power of ageLOC LumiSpa to rejuvenate skin around the eyes.  
Targeted Focus
Paired with ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes, the multitasking ageLOC LumiSpa Accent uses an oscillating motion to gently exfoliate the skin around the eyes while delivering key ingredients to promote brighter, fresher eyes. Together, the system delivers several benefits.  
ageLOC LumiSpa Accent:  
• Gently massages active ingredients into the skin for enhanced efficacy 
• Increases the appearance of skin volume and density around eyes 
• Promotes the appearance of stronger, healthier skin while refining fine lines and wrinkles 
• Spot treatment head uses the softest silicone available 
• Spot treatment head is embedded with antimicrobial silver which makes cleaning as easy as possible and helps keep the silicone tips hygienic 
ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes:  
• Fresher, brighter, hydrated skin around the eyes 
• Softens, smooths and instantly hydrates skin while promoting radiance 
• Eyes look awake and refreshed while minimizing the look of tired, stressed skin • Reduces appearance of dark circles 
• Visibly reduces puffy eyes and under-eye bags 
• Helps to visibly lift and firm the eyelids 
• Helps improve skin texture and tighten skin around the eyes 

Science-based Development 
ageLOC LumiSpa Accent and ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes were inspired by the multi-functionality and the patented Micropulse Oscillation technology of ageLOC LumiSpa paired with the treatment cleansers. The ageLOC LumiSpa Accent tip, made from the gentlest silicone available, has a unique topography with offset peaks and troughs and oscillates back and forth to precisely move skin without overstimulating it. Like ageLOC LumiSpa treatment heads, the ageLOC LumiSpa Accent tip is also  designed to gently exfoliate skin and is embedded with anti-microbial silver, which is more hygienic than other topical devices used on skin. Nu Skin conducted several preliminary studies that revealed that individuals who used the ageLOC LumiSpa Accent product pairing experienced improvements in reduced appearance of puffiness, eye bags, fine lines and wrinkles.  
“We’ve developed a topical formula that not only provides the correct cushioning and interaction between the surface and the skin, but also provides some key ingredients for this area,” said Dr. Joseph Chang, Chief Scientific Officer. “The eye area’s unique characteristics make it a perfect candidate for this targeted treatment. It’s never too early to start caring for this area and keep your eyes looking glowing and healthy.”  
ageLOC LumiSpa and ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes System 
The ageLOC LumiSpa system includes: 
• The ageLOC LumiSpa Accent attachment: ageLOC LumiSpa Accent is a waterproof attachment head specifically designed to fit on the ageLOC LumiSpa handheld device. ageLOC LumiSpa treatment heads move at the precise frequency, validated by clinical studies, to promote skin renewal for a healthy and refreshed appearance.  
• Silicone Treatment Head: ageLOC LumiSpa Accent features one treatment head made of the softest silicone available and is embedded with anti-microbial silver.   
• ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes: the ageLOC LumiSpa Accent optimizes the effectiveness of this potent eye cream by enabling gentle interaction with the skin. ageLOC LumiSpa IdealEyes contains Nu Skin’s proprietary ageLOC ingredient blend that is designed to maintain healthy, bright, youthful looking skin. The treatment also contains popular, effective ingredients including:  
o A peptide complex to help visibly firm and tone skin. 
o Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (a form of vitamin C) to help protect against free radical damage and brighten the eye area. 
o Plankton extract to help decrease the appearance of pigmentation in the undereye area and tone the eye area.  
o Squalene to help prevent moisture loss and restore skin’s flexibility.  
o An antioxidant complex to protect skin against daily environmental stress.  
o Caffeine visibly reduces puffy eyes and under-eye bags o Ophthalmologist tested 




Availability  
The ageLOC® LumiSpa Accent Launch kit includes the ageLOC LumiSpa device with Normal Surface Head, ageLOC LumiSpa Cleanser, ageLOC LumiSpa Accent with silicone head, ageLOC LumiSpa  IdealEyes, and a quick start guide. It will be available on 13 March 2019 with a retail price of PHP 20,000.

How to Rebuild Life after Separation/Divorce

Sometimes things happen and we are not very sure how to deal with them. One of these things may be that we are going through a personal problem like a divorce. This is a time when there are so many emotions going on and you are not sure what is going on in some cases.  There are many feelings that you may be hiding deep inside and you are looking for a way to release them.  When this is the problem, you may want to consider writing a journal to take care of the issues.  


You can build a new life for yourself if you are able to write down your feelings and things that you would normally keep to yourself.  These things will include the daily reminders that you have to endure and how they make you feel. You may want to include what you are going to do in order to make these reminders seem a little bit easier to cope with.  You will be surprised at how writing it down on paper can help the situation a little more.

A journal is also something that you can use to comfort your feelings when you are ashamed to do so any other way. You may want to make sure that you are including everything that has happened since your divorce started. You can make sure that you are keeping track of the daily things that make you sad or things that you do to make yourself feel better.  As you are writing you will see that your true emotions are coming out and that you are finally able to make some head way on rebuilding your life for the better.

You can write in your journal anytime that you want and make the most of it. You will find that when you are expressing your feelings on paper you will be more able to find out how you are really feeling.  You will be able to look back on your journal and see what you are going through and how you are coping with the changes that are being made in your life.  

When you are writing a journal it is important to be honest. You do not want to write anything that is not true. After all this is something that you are using to let your true feelings come out.  This is a way for you to express who you are and what your intentions are. You want to make sure that you are keeping this journal in a safe place so that no one else will be able to get your private thoughts. You do not want others to know how your personal feelings are affecting you in some circumstances.

A journal can help to make you feel more confident in the way that you are feeling. You will want to make sure that you are using this journal to make your divorce go better. You will be able to look back on your journal and see how much you have improved over time. When you are continuing to write in the journal all the time and every time you want to express a certain feeling.  You will be able to see the progress that you have made so that you can see how much better off you are now that the divorce is over with. You will see the beginning and everything in between on your wild and amazing journey that you have been taking.

You can make a journal for anything that you want and it is a good method of counseling for anyone that is going through something in his or her life that is difficult.

Vicks’ #TouchOfCare

(Manila, Philippines) A strong follow up from its 2018 #TouchOfCare video, Vicks once again releases another true-to-life story on the transformative power of care, to celebrate the extraordinary stories of the people who have lived it by their actions. This time, it centers on a child infected with HIV and a woman whose love and care paved way for the transformation of both their lives. This is a powerful story that aims to challenge current beliefs, social norms, definitions, and stereotypes; a bold move aimed to address issues on discrimination.

Vicks, a brand synonymous with Generations of Care globally, continues its mission on transforming people’s lives with the power of care with the belief that it is Care that makes a family, and not the other way around. The brand’s #TouchOfCare campaign brings to the surface societal taboos and sheds light on them to inspire change in perspectives and preconceived biases. It reveals how anybody with a loving touch of care has the capability to transform another person’s life.

“The purpose of the Vicks brand is rooted in care. With our #TouchOfCare campaign, we aim to share stories where people have transformed lives of others through their extraordinary acts of care. The story of “Agnes” was one such story which just needed to be told. We hope the campaign inspires more people to transform lives and transcend social norms, definitions and stereotypes through their own acts of care.” - Akhilesh Negi, P&G Brand Director Healthcare APAC

The 4-minute video heroes a child who was born with HIV infection. When his mom died from the disease, the 4-month old was handed by his immediate family to Agnes, his mom’s friend. Captured in the story is how Agnes later on found out about the child’s condition, and instead of turning away from the unexpectedly difficult situation, she committed to raise him and showered him with love and care. It was the start of a beautiful life transformation for the two; revealing how Agnes fought for child’s life against all ridicule and discrimination from the people around them. Today, with Agnes’ unfaltering love and care, the child is 4 years old and his HIV infection lays dormant in his body.

“With the Touch of Care campaign, we are passionate about telling powerful stories of love. The story of Agnes just grabbed us from the start and we felt this moving tale of mother and son,  amidst their challenges, was something we want to share with the world. This is the power of care that Vicks celebrates, for when you choose it, you have a hand in transforming another person’s life and make it better.” - Lester Estrada, P&G Philippines Marketing Director

Vicks believes that sharing Agnes’ story will create a ripple effect that inspires people to look past the current beliefs, social norms, definitions, and stereotypes placed on people, and ultimately creates a transformative power of care. The brand also wants to create societal awareness for children born with HIV in order to change society’s beliefs and perspectives towards them. Vicks is committed to amplifying inspiring stories that show the transformation of human lives when people give a touch of care.

“While brands have the power to lead conversations and influence culture, it is ordinary people in their everyday lives who actually inspire these brands to reflect relevant realities in our advertising. This extraordinary ability of a person to transcend every imaginable boundary to feel and care for another life, another human being, continues to be the inspiration for Vicks’ "Touch of Care" campaign across multiple geographies. To celebrate the lives, amplify the stories and support our everyday heroines and heroes is a privilege for our brand.” - Ajay Vikram, Publicis Singapore Chief Creative Officer, Global Clients

Vicks has partnered with Project Red Ribbon (a partner of Department of Health - National AIDS/STI Prevention and Control Program and is associated with the World Health Organization and UNAIDS). This partnership aims to give the same love and care seen in the film to the children under the “Duyan Project”. “Duyan”, a Filipino noun which means “cradle”, aims to provide care and support to children with HIV in the Philippines. Through the said program, they will be given care, love and attention, to improve their quality of life until they are once again healthy and can go back to school.

First Aid Training on Wound Care Management today

Glenmark Philippines Inc. leads in creating First Aid “first responders” at school and at home

SMX Convention Center, SM Aura, Taguig City, February 24, 2019—Glenmark Philippines, Inc.,
an affiliate of a leading research-based pharmaceutical company Glenmark Pharmaceuticals,
will conduct a “First Aid for Kids Training” today in this city, through its brand on wound care,
Foskina Ointment.

Through the training, held today at the SMX Convention Center from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm,
Glenmark aims to increase awareness about the value of knowing the application of basic first aid,
particularly among parents and school facilitators of pre-school and kindergarteners.


Kids in this age range are usually prone to cuts, scrapes, and burns, acquired either at home, school
or other areas like malls, parks, and playgrounds where they are most physically active. Thus, it is of
utmost importance that parents and school facilitators are knowledgeable when it comes to applying
first aid as the “first responders” on proper wound care management and in other cases of
emergencies.


Among the highlights of the training will cover wound care and burn management, allergies and bites,
and CPR and choking.  The lectures and hands-on demos will be led by the team behind Early
Intervention Management, Dr. Dan Luchangco from the Emergency Department of the Makati Medical
Center and Dr. Joy Sto. Domingo, Chairman of the VRP Emergency Medicine Consultants.

Media partners for the event include Manila Bulletin (Digital), Channel Hue, Experience Travel and
Living magazine and Moms & Kids Magazine.

For cuts and scrapes, fix it with Foskina! For more information about Foskina Ointment, visit

Heavy Meals at Artisans

It's a routine for us, fieldworkers to have lunch out when we are at the main office for month-end reports or just plainly being at the main office.

Last day, we wanted to try El Txoco, the new resto/cafe a few blocks away from the office. But to our dismay learning that they only serves/caters for snacks or merienda and no rice meals.

Good thing, there's a nearby (actually, just a few steps away) resto. Called the ARTISANS. Mexican (I think) restaurant in town.



Looking at their menu, got me by surprised (Shocked at the PRICES). The cheapskate in me reacting violently.. But lo, and behold! when the food we ordered arrived, shocked me even more! 






Servings were actually good for two!!! Prices were between Php325-Php600 or more, depending on the kind of meals you order.. But I think it is justified for value. 


We were served with sumptuous heavy meals. Even their waffles are good for 4-5 persons..

My tummy was full and still heavy until night time..  ;)

Valentine's Date at Dang Maria's

It's been a a habit for a time that we dined out on Vday. 
This year, I decided to bring my girls at this homey, romantically nice restaurant around town.




Days prior the 14th, i already scouted some venues to bring the family for dinner. Wanted to spend the night having a sumptuous meal in a relaxing place.. Hence, made a reservation for a family dinner. 

Had a short chat with the staff via their FB Page, and was advised that I can order meals in advance so that it'll be served upon arrival and to cut the waiting time. :)



Their pizza is the best for me so far! No wonder that they've expanded their pizza business in the Visayas.. :) (Php 275.00 on regular size for Beefy Beefy and Pepperoni) They also have family sized ones!


We ordered Chicken and Pork Milanese (Php 165.00/meal). It's huge and delish too!




Dang Maria- a home garden restaurant and a bed and breakfast place situated in Bancao-Bancao, Puerto Princesa.





Staff were very accommodating and we had a great night experience.. My girls wants to come back at day time soon.. :)
