BDO Life Transforms What Ifs from Challenges to Opportunities

Wednesday, August 12, 2020

     Life is full of “what if” moments—crossroads and decisions that help us fulfill our dreams and realize what we set out to achieve. Each “what if” moment presents us with two possibilities, that which is desirable or that which is undesirable. Our subsequent decisions and actions direct the course of our lives moving forward. Therefore, whenever we face a “what if” moment, are we ready and prepared to make the right moves? One expert who advocates the necessity of financial protection for “what if” moments is Mr. Renato A. Vergel de Dios, President and CEO of BDO Life Assurance Company, Inc. He explains how we can make “what if” moments work to our advantage with the correct mindset.

     “When we are faced with a ‘what if’ moment, we are also confronted with potential benefits and risks. The most reasonable course of action is to make a decision that maximizes the potential benefits and minimizes the potential risks,” he says. Vergel de Dios points out that the entire country experienced a crucial “what if” moment when the pandemic struck. “On top of dealing with our own survival, we also have to help others. Taking an ‘every-man-for-himself’ attitude is unacceptable. We are all in this together. As they say, ‘we must heal as one,’” he says.

Product Review: Olay Body Wash with Niacinamide

     I'm not a fan of body wash. I have tried a few brands before that I like at first try but after weeks of using it, I suddenly lost interest. Effectiveness is not an issue, what I think made me stay away from them is the formulation- too moisturizing that I'm having a hard time washing it off or the scent that's overpowering for my sensitive nose.

     Fast forward today, body washes are making rounds in the personal care department. The search for a body care product that reduces the appearance of dark spots and evens skin tone for more radiant skin is IN. I’m already fair, to begin with, but I have an uneven skin tone that tends to get dry and dull when there’s a sudden change of weather.⁣ Did you know that there's one beauty ingredient gaining popularity these days? Luckily one of my cult-fave skincare brands has it- Vitamin B3 in the newest Olay Body Wash with Niacinamide. Know more of these after the jump and why I think I'm rekindling my love for body washes at the moment.

      This pandemic has caused so much stress that many of us are experiencing fear and anxiety. Many people lost their jobs, closed down their businesses, got depressed, and a whole lot more. We are still in a tough battle with the unseen enemy. Aside from everyday struggles and battles, different stressful news related to the virus have been circulating in my Facebook newsfeed recently.

     While we are trying our best to protect ourselves and our families against the virus by following government protocols like social distancing, handwashing, and wearing a face mask, I've read a news about fake 'Made in Taiwan' Face Masks that's made in China and now are being sold in Philippine shores. It's alarming because the proper wearing of face mask is one of the defense against the virus but now that fake China products are here, there, and everywhere, how can we be so sure that we are protecting ourselves and our loved ones? Sharing more things I recently discovered and why we need to be more vigilant in this difficult time.
