Can Diet Boost Your Immune System and Provide Better Health?

Thursday, July 22, 2021

     Your immune system is responsible for fighting off diseases and infections that threaten your well-being. And with the coronavirus still posing a threat, many have thought of different ways to boost their immune system and prepare it to fight this virus in case they ever get exposed. However, this system is a complex one with different cells, receptors, organs, and antibodies that work as a team to protect the body from diseases and infections.

     But sometimes, our immune system fails and can’t seem to protect us from threats, so we fall ill – which makes us wonder,” how can we boost our immunity well enough to avoid sickness?”

How Diamonds are Made into Jewelry: Cutting, Setting & More

Wednesday, June 23, 2021

     There are several factors that serve to define a truly stunning piece of jewelry. The type of metal utilized, the level of craftsmanship, and its inherent characteristics will all have a massive impact. However, there is no doubt that the presence of a high-quality diamond can make or break even the most expensive pieces.

     Of course, this is partially due to the sheer brilliance of the stone itself. We nonetheless need to remember that it takes a great deal of skill to transform a rather generic piece of jewelry into one which captivates the eye of the beholder. This is why appreciating the process in greater detail is always a good idea. How is an otherwise "anonymous" diamond transformed into jewelry? Let us take a look at the process in a bit more detail.

Feature: Vaseline Daily Tone Up Sun Cream SPF40

Monday, June 21, 2021

     One of the downsides of living in a tropical country is the humidity. In the Philippines, being under the sun is something we experience regardless of the season.  However, the summer months bring on harsher heat and dry weather that even indirect sunlight can cause sunburn and skin damage. That's why when I became meticulous in my skincare regimen years ago, I make sure that I have different sunscreens in my stash. Sunscreen is life for me. 

     That's why here in our country, where we certainly experience the scorching heat of the sun even if it's rainy season, we're always on the lookout for a sunscreen that not only protects our skin from this but is also lightweight, so we can avoid the sticky, uncomfortable feeling, especially in humidity. Whether we’re out by the beach, getting Vitamin D during a workout, or even indoors by a window, sunscreen is a skincare must-have all year round. Vaseline, a skincare brand known for its healing properties, has launched its first-ever sun care product, Vaseline Daily Sun Care to keep your skin protected and hydrated from within. More information about the product after the jump.

Saturday, June 19, 2021

     Our lips are always exposed to the elements and come in contact with food, substances in the air and so much more. They're also prone to dryness and chapping because they lack oil glands.

Apply it before you put on your lipstick or after you've applied all your skincare products. Your lips deserve the same TLC as your skin. More information about these lip balms below.

Mentholatum Therapy Lip Balm and Mentholatum Therapy Lip Gel

    Feature: Wonderhome Naturals

    Friday, June 11, 2021

         I’m a self-confessed clean freak and my husband calls me ‘foreign contaminant’ (one of the robots in Wall-E) every time he sees me cleaning non-stop at home that's why I'm so happy when receiving cleaning products for home care, personal care, and lifestyle use. Ironically, some of the cleaning products we use at home though formulated to kill dangerous germs, contain ingredients that, even with short-term use, can irritate the eyes, skin, and throat, and cause headaches, dizziness, vomiting, and trigger asthma with their strong, chemical scents. 

         Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), gases emitted from cleaning supplies and pesticides, also pose a huge threat to our health. Long-term exposure and inhalation could lead to cancer, kidney and liver damage, as well as damage to the central nervous system. Having that said, this promising brand is leading a clean revolution and making waves of changes, not waste! Introducing Wonderhome Naturals, a proudly Filipino brand that brings home and personal care products powered by plant probiotics. More about the brand and the products they sent me below.
