Demystifying Skin Care Myths

With the emergence of so many beauty, skin care products and aesthetic clinics in the country, it is important that we education ourselves on the basics about our skin and how to take care of it. There are, however, a number of myths that are going around about ways to achieve healthy skin. Here are just three of them. 

Myth number one: Antibacterial soap is best for keeping your skin clean. 

Truth: According to Harvard Health Publishing of the Harvard Medical School, the skin normally has bacteria on it. It is impossible to keep your skin completely free of bacteria for any amount of time. In fact, many experts are concerned that the use of anti-bacterial soap could lead to more antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Antibacterial soap is not necessary for everyday use. Regular soap is fine. Thorough and consistent hand washing, not anti-bacterial soap, is what helps prevent the spread of infection. 

Myth number two: The higher the SPF of your sunscreen, the better 

Truth: Above a certain level, a higher sun protection factor (SPF) has little added benefit compared with a lower SPF, according to the Harvard Health Publishing of the Harvard Medical School. Experts generally recommend using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which blocks out 97% of UVB radiation. A higher SPF would be more effective if you are planning to be outside for more than two to three hours, especially during hours of peak sun exposure (10 am to 2 pm). But in most circumstances, a higher SPF may not be worth the extra cost. 

Myth number three: Expensive skin care products work best 

Truth: This is simply not true, according to WebMD.Com. Many mass market products are better than expensive ones. Most active ingredients found in anti-aging creams, for example, are similar whether they are sold by a local store or a fancy boutique. Expensive skin care products can be good but you can usually get something similar for a lot less.

Hello everyone! :)

As we all know, last year or two years ago, bloggers/vloggers and ordinary people raved the Aztec Indian Healing Clay Mask. I remembered how hard it was just to get a tub. People fell in line for hours, or if you want to escape long lines, you must be willing to spend a thousand (online shop) just to have one.

I was one of those who patronized AND ACTUALLY IS STILL A LOYAL CUSTOMER of Aztec What I love about this product is it helps in drying pimples and it minimizes pores. This is my go to  mask everytime I am having breakout. 

That's why I became excited when I discovered that they released a FACE AND BODY SOAP! :) I've been actually thinking if it is possible to make the mask, a soap. And voila! :)

Want to know my verdict? Watch the detailed review below. :)


The rise of e-cigarettes and RELX Technology

The use of electronic cigarettes has surged worldwide over the past decade, with the global market valued at US$10.3B in 2018 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.9% from 2019 to 2025 per multiple reports. Though there are several major players in the vaping industry, most of them owned by tobacco companies, one recent independent entrant, RELX Technology – pronounced “relax” – has stood out from the competition.

Origins: Female entrepreneurship and concern for family and friends

Founded by ex-Uber China Head Kate Wang in January 2018, RELX Technology’s products have experienced tremendous success with adult smokers globally, catapulting it to the position of the leading closed-system e-cigarette brand in Asia.

Motivated by her father’s lifelong struggle to quit cigarettes and the lack of suitable new generation products in the market, Wang took it upon herself to start a company that prioritizes innovation, safety, and product quality. 

An independent e-cigarette brand that works ethically 

With a mission to empower adult smokers through advanced technology and user-friendly design without sacrificing ethics, RELX Technology’s core business encompasses independent R&D, product design and development, and sales. From its inception, RELX Technology has conceptualized and put into effect its ‘Guardian Program’ - a company-wide initiative that stretches from product development to sales, ensuring that the company puts the necessary effort in preventing and discouraging the use of e-cigarettes by minors, whether this be through concerted efforts with retailers to step up on-site identification of purchasers, or launching facial-recognition vending machines in China that dispense products only to adults against their national ID cards.

One of the highlights of my 2018 was, I was invited by different schools and organizations to talk about Blogging.
