So I'm sharing with you my experienced upon using this product.




bare face
 Starting off, my face is oily and have some dark spots. Sorry for my pimple marks and pimple.


1. I splash some water on my face to dampen it
2. Pump enough product to your hands and lather it to your skin. In addition, I rather use a spatula to spread it all over my face. I think in this way the bubble will be not yet activated.

while cleansing

3. Wait a couple of seconds about 30-60 seconds. In those times, while the bubble is building up you can feel that weird sensation all over your face. It is the time where the nutrients penetrate on our skin.

4. Wash your face with a warm/lukewarm water. My personal tip, create a circular motion with your hands and massage your face.

An overwhelming total of 18,000 park guests gathered together last October 27, 2018 to remember the magic with Enchanted Kingdom and celebrate its 23rd Anniversary. Guests were left in awe as they witnessed the powerful stage of Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo along with James Reid and many more.



From all corners, the Spaceport was packed with people – both young and young at heart were in attendance. As soon as the Popstar Princess took the stage, all eyes were on her; the brightest tala of all. She performed her top hits ‘Tala,’ ‘Kilometro,’ and ‘Ikot-Ikot’ to which the crowd ecstatically sang along to. She rocked the stage with James Reid, who recently dropped the ‘Careless Mixtape’ last October 12. The suave singer-actor captivated the crowd with his charismatic voice and powerful moves dancing alongside G-Force. After performing their own hits, the tandem shared the stage for a medley performance, singing throwback hits from the 90s.

The Juans, Janine Teñoso, J.Crisis, and EK’s very own Victoria’s Way, Kingsmen and EK Circle of Artists graced the stage with their presence and performed a string of nostalgic old school songs. The night finished off with none other than the Sky Wizardry fireworks display that perfectly captured the magic.

Enchanted Kingdom’s 23rd Anniversary celebration was indeed a success. Once again, the park made it a magical experience for all guests, proving that it will continue to be the best and only world class theme park in the country. 

DJ Mark Thompson emerged victorious at the Red Bull Music 3Style Philippine Finals on Sunday, November 18th, 2018, at Xylo at the Palace, in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Metro Manila. The newly crowned champion will advance to the Global Finals in Taipei, Taiwan, where he will represent the Philippines from January 20th – 29th, 2019.



Red Bull Music 3Style is one of the premier music tournaments in the world today. Now on its fifth year in the Philippines as an annual event, Red Bull Music 3Style brought out the best young DJs the country has to offer in a showcase of skill, creativity, and ability. Each participant was tasked to upload a five-minute performance video showcasing three different genres of music.


This year’s finalists included:

  • Arpee Ong
  • D’Mad Tweaker (DJ Jan Musa)
  • DJ Gavin Skewes
  • DYHA (Ernesto Alfante Jr.)
  • iNBiTuiN (Charles Angeles Jr.)
  • Mark Thompson

Before a crowd of over a thousand, each finalist was given a 15-minute set to showcase their skills, dazzle the audience, and impress the judges. This year’s judges included respected and internationally renowned names in the scene such as DJ Puffy and DJ Shintaro; former Red Bull Music 3Style World Champions, and DJ Shortkut; a member of the legendary group, Invisibl Skratch Piklz.

After a night of back-to-back competition, Mark Thompson prevailed as this year’s champion, with DJ Jan Musa in second place, and DYHA and iNBiTuiN sharing a tie at third place.
“I am lost for words,” shares 2018 Red Bull Music 3Style Philippine Champion, DJ Mark Thompson. “Like, never in a million years did I think I would win. I didn’t care about placing: I just wanted to do my set right and have a good time. Being a fan and watching the years before was already a big deal, let alone place and win. I can’t believe it.”

Mark Thompson rocked audiences during his set, which saw a drum solo in its closing moments. “What I did, because this is my first battle, was look at the rule book. I couldn’t compete with the talent, but I have ideas and I wanted to make these ideas happen. I can be creative and I wanted to mix the unconventional.”

With a Philippine Champion crowned, Mark Thompson now advances to the 9th annual Red Bull Music 3Style Global Finals at Taipei, Taiwan, from January 20th – 29th, 2019.
“I’m going to practice, practice, practice. I’m going to do my best and have fun,” adds Thompson. “I’ve never played in another country, so this is going to be another first. If you love it, work hard at it. It’s supposed to be fun!”

Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the best way to achieve physical, mental, and emotional health. However, following them can be challenging, especially for those who have formed unhealthy habits over the years.



The key to success is to slowly integrate changes into your life. Once you get into the habit of maintaining healthy practices and making them a part of your routine, you will start to see its benefits to your well-being. To help you get started, Santé listed five daily habits you can start integrating into your daily life.

Get moving 


Daily physical activities are essential to maintaining a healthy body and reducing the major risk factors for chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, non-coronary heart disease, hypertension, among others.

Exercising is not only good for the body, but also for the mind. According to FNRI-DOST, exercise helps enhance psychological well-being, improve self-esteem, and maintain motivation.

Simple activities like walking, running, biking, or even stretching, can help maintain weight loss. Committing to regular exercise may be challenging at first, but over time, as you continue doing it, you will start to see the benefits it can provide to your body.

Get more sleep

Sleep, just like exercise and a healthy diet, plays an important role in health and well-being. Loss of quality sleep not only impacts your mood and performance but, can also result to health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.

Getting enough sleep – seven to eight hours -- poses tremendous benefits to achieve both mental and physical wellness, so you can be at your best every day.

Manage distress 


There are many factors in our lives that can lead to distress, such as work, school, traffic congestion, and relationship problems. Distress is a natural reaction and, is the body’s ways of responding to the mental or emotional strain or tension from adverse or demanding circumstances. However, chronic or long-term distress can be a precursor to issues such as depression, anxiety, and even memory loss.

Thankfully, distress is something that can be managed. One good way to deal with it is through a balanced schedule. Try to find time for yourself in between work and social life. This allows you to have a new perspective, so you feel less overwhelmed. Having a social support where you can share your concerns can also help relieve distress. However, it is important to note that everyone is different. Thus, it is essential to experiment and find out what best works for you.

Avoid smoking 


It is no secret that tobacco has negative impacts on health. In fact, smoking remains as one of the leading causes of death worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), tobacco kills more than seven million people each year. More than six million of these deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890,000 are caused by second-hand smoking.

By refraining from smoking tobacco, you get to reduce the risk of getting illnesses, such as lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, asthma, among others. In addition, you also get to protect the people you love from the dangerous second-hand smoke.

Make better food choices 


We’ve all heard of it before, but it’s true—eating healthy is good for you. By making smart, healthy food choices, you help your body get the nutrients it needs every day and lowers your risk to health problems.

The key to eating well is to enjoy a variety of nutritious foods from the five food groups namely: (1) vegetables and legumes/beans, (2) fruit, (3) grain (cereal) foods, (4) lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds and legumes/beans, and (5) milk, yoghurt cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat. Consuming foods from every food group help support optimal health and prevent diseases.



To complete your balanced diet, consider drinking natural and organic Santé Barley – available in powder form or in vegetable capsules. Sourced from Santé’s New Zealand farms, Santé Barley is a good source of niacin (vitamin B) that provides numerous benefits to the cardiovascular system. Niacin can help reduce bad cholesterol, lipoprotein (a), and free radical. It also reduces the risk of blood clots. And since it is high in fiber, it can help promote bowel movement for optimal health.

Leading a healthy life may be difficult at first, but if you establish simple daily practices now, then the end result will definitely worth it. Integrating these five daily habits in your life not only makes you feel great about yourself but can also help manage your daily life better. Thus, allowing you to be more productive, so you get to live more and do more.

I always make sure that I give the best for my kid (Harvey). He is my priority and I want to make sure that he enjoys his activity every day, but there are times that I need to say no and that makes him sad. We parents tend to have this instinct that to say no and forbid what we know that will affect our kids' health.


NIDO® 3+ and 5+ empowers parents to say YES and LET GO of their kids, letting them explore, learn, and appreciate the real world through fun, educational, role-playing activities. Just in time for National Children’s Month, NIDO® 3+ and 5+ in partnership with KidZania Manila presents the NIDO® 3+/5+ City Challenge.

NIDO encourages parents to let go of our kids that is why they planned this City Challenge that features a series of strategically-designed activities that aim to help parents guide their growing-up kids in performing basic to difficult tasks.

The KidZania activities include the following:

  1. Bookstore
  2. Window Washing
  3. Acting Academy
  4. Police Station and CSI
  5. Farm House. 
Each of these challenges come with three levels depending on who’s performing the task: parent and kid for Beginners, individual mom or dad and kid for Intermediate, and kid only for Expert. By going through each level, parents become more confident and accepting in letting go of their little ones, for them to slowly learn how to manage on their own, giving way for their self-help and adaptive skills to improve. A corresponding number of stamps is earned after successfully completing each level, and exciting prizes await those who can collect a total of ten stamps.

Together with other Celebrity Kid, Harvey listening to the instructions


Language skills are also promoted as parents and kids would need to effectively communicate with each other to complete the challenges, while cognitive skills are further enhanced through tasks the require problem-solving, reasoning, memory, and decision making.

In addition, parents will also be able to aid their kids in exercising their motor skills with the various movements involved in the challenges, which range from dancing and carrying or delivering of goods, to fine motor movements such as writing.

 “We really took into consideration the various learning aspects that growing kids need for their age bracket,” says Missy Ayson, Vice President and Lead Consumer Marketing Manager for NIDO® Growing-Up Milks. “And with the NIDO® 3+/5+ City Challenge, we are giving parents the opportunity to develop their children’s social skills, analytical comprehension, adaptability, and more while allowing them to bond together in the process.“

Aside from the City Challenge, Harvey also tried how to a firefighter. It was a good experience on him. He learns where do fire can start, what to do when there is fire. He also had a chance to put the fire off!

Even though that being a Firefighter is not listed on the program, I still let Harvey do it because he was so excited.
He was able to all of the activities all by himself. I'M SO PROUD OF HIM!


The NIDO® 3+/5+ City Challenge really teaches not just the kids but also the parents on how we can let our children enjoy every activity and explore their imagination. Come over at  KidZania to experience NIDO® 3+/5+ City Challenge this will run from November to December 2018 at KidZania Manila, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

Let we give you some highlights of our NIDO® 3+/5+ City Challenge. First Harvey needs to encash his Checque from BPI. The cash that he got from the bank will be his money buying around the place.

Happy for his first BPI encashment
Our next stop is the Police Station, here we're a team. We solve the problem to find a clue for a case.

Here's the evidence report.

Next stop is that he was able to learn how farmers plants the seeds and how to take care of it.

a snap together with his co-farmer

Confidence to say YES and LET GO

NIDO® 3+ and 5+ are the only growing-up milk brands developed with Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®, featuring L. Rhamnosus which is an advanced probiotic strain that helps protect children’s tummies and helps build their upper respiratory tract defense against germs that bring about common coughs and colds.

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life. However, the experience varies/is different for every woman. While some women sail through without a twinge of a problem, others will face distressing pregnancy situations like morning sickness. Some pregnancy symptoms can be so unpleasant that you might even find yourself wondering: Am I supposed to feel this way or is there anything wrong with me?


To help you know what to expect, Christia S. Padolina, M.D. listed symptoms that typically accompany pregnancy and recommended when you need to call your healthcare professional.

Spotting

Why it happens - Spotting or light bleeding during pregnancy commonly occurs during the first trimester. In fact, approximately 20 percent of pregnant women will experience spotting and, most of them will go on to have a healthy pregnancy.

One common cause of spotting is implantation bleeding, which occurs six to twelve days after the fertilized egg attaches to your uterine lining. Typically happens during the early stage of pregnancy, implantation bleeding is often mistaken as the beginning of a regular menstrual period. This type of spotting may last anywhere from a few hours to a few days but do not worry because it normally occurs to pregnant women.

When to seek assistance - Any kind of vaginal bleeding can be a symptom of a larger problem. Thus, whether you are bleeding or spotting, it is best to contact your healthcare provider and answer detailed questions about your experience (e.g. the amount of blood you've lost or your overall feeling).



Swelling


Why it happens - Normal swelling or edema is often experienced in the hands, face, legs, ankles, and feet, due to the accumulation of excessive fluid in the tissues. While it can happen to anyone, edema is particularly common among pregnant women since the body produces approximately 50 percent more blood and body fluids to meet the needs of the developing baby. Swelling may be experienced at any point during pregnancy, but usually occurs around the fifth month and increases towards the third trimester.



When to seek assistance - Watch out for a sudden swelling in your hands, feet, and face, accompanied with rapid weight gain. This may be the early signs of preeclampsia, a pregnancy condition characterized by high blood pressure (hypertension) and increased protein in the urine. Compared to normal edema, this swelling is more severe. Contact your healthcare professional if you experience any of these red flags.

In some cases, nausea and vomiting may continue until the third trimester in 15 to 20 percent of women and until delivery in five percent of women.



When to seek assistance - Nausea and vomiting are usually not harmful to the developing baby, but can have a serious effect on your everyday life, including your ability to work or do your normal activities.
