The Two Types of Glutathione (and which one is better!)

Thursday, November 03, 2022

     Glutathione has been a part of our skin-care products which helps us achieve fairer and even-toned skin. But do you know that there are actually two types of glutathione and that not all glutathione supplements are the same?

     The first type of glutathione, L-glutathione (reduced), is the one that is more familiar to the public since it is the most common glutathione present in the food supplements that we take. The only downside to this type is that there are limitations when it comes to its effectiveness. L-glutathione still needs to be oxidized in our body so that it can be converted into something that can be easily absorbed by our body.

     If anyone knows how to keep their skin glowing, youthful, and radiant it would be fashion muse and top Filipina actress, Janine Gutierrez. At the relaunch of Bio Science’s Bio Gold line at The Look, SM Aura last May 14, Janine shared her secret to her glowing skin.

     Bio Science is a premium skin care brand specifically developed for Asian skin. Its products are made specially to suit Asian skin and their needs. “Working closely with the brand, the major reason why Bio Science products are so special is because of the Bio-Energy Complex,” Janine shared. “It’s a formula which is a scientific innovation that increases our skin’s oxygen intake by 39%, helping improve our skin’s absorption of the nourishing bio-ingredients, keeping the skin healthy, energized, and youthful.”

     Photoaging or the damage the sun does to the skin can result in wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and melasma and overall early aging. As much as we love the sun, we do not like what it can do to our skin.
Excessive sun exposure can dry your hair and even burn your scalp. Harmful effects of the sun can be avoided by always wearing sunscreen when going out and protective clothing if you know you’re going to be exposed for long periods of time. Avoid sun exposure from 10am to 3pm because this is when sunburn-causing ultraviolet rays are at their strongest.

     Aside from outer protection, nourishing the body from the inside can help. Vitamin C is one of the vitamins that I religiously take every day. I’ve tried different brands before and one of them is Rosy Peel- a natural vitamin c supplement that contains fruit extracts. Fast forward today, it's making a comeback as Rosy Peel Plus. Now with a boost of collagen, this all-natural supplement is here to give you a healthier, younger and brighter skin plus a boost in summer protection so your skin and hair stay healthy in any weather.

     Actors, singers, and basically anyone who works in front of the camera tend to be picky about the beauty products they use, as part of their job is to maintain great and healthy skin. To help them achieve that, it’s important they use products that truly work. There’s one cult J-beauty brand that Asian superstars like Blackpink’s Jisoo, Jun Ji Hyun, and Jeon Somi all use and love: Hada Labo.

     K-pop star and actor Jisoo has once revealed that she has dry skin, so she tends to choose nourishing and moisturizing products like the Shiro Jyun Arbutin Whitening Lotion. Beloved Korean superstar Jun Ji Hyun who’s most known for her films like My Sassy Girl and her series My Love from the Star was once the face of the OG Goku Jyun Hydrating Lotion which she said gave her bouncy, deeply hydrated skin. Jeon Somi, a Korean solo singer and a former member of the project girl group I.O.I who loves super moisturizing products, has been recently tapped to endorse the same Goku Jyun Hydrating Lotion.

Feature: NAMI Water-Based, 18-Free, and Vegan Nail Polish

Tuesday, February 01, 2022

     I'm always having second thoughts on getting my nails done. Like my hair, my nails are brittle and my thin skin easily gets wounded if the nail technician is not experienced in pushing back cuticles and removing dead skin gently. Another thing is the kind of nail polish to be used because my nails get yellow easily with harsh brands. 

     Gone are the days that I will just opt for cleaning manicure and pedicure services because there's a new nail polish brand that is non-toxic, cruelty-free, odor-free, and vegan. Nami officially launches the first water-based, 18-free, vegan nail polish brand in the Philippines. My eyes sparkled when I saw the beautiful colors and features of Nami. More information about Nami and the shades available below :)

For the Legaspi Family, Time Stands Still with Luminisce

Sunday, September 19, 2021

     We watched them enjoy ice cream in front of the TV as a family, we cried when mom and dad got married in a surprise wedding like no other, and we saw the twins gracefully transform from kids to young adults. The Legaspis—Zoren, Carmina, Mavy, and Cassy—have gone through different milestones in the public eye, and though their special family moments happened through many years, a lot are quick to notice that the Legaspis never seem to age.

     When a photo of theirs went viral a few years back, which showed the entire family dressed in black and looking impeccably beautiful, a number of comments talked about how the Legaspis had “vampire genes,” with their beauty unchanging and seemingly preserved through time.

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.
