Never Let Lose a Strand of Your Patience

Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.

Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.

  • Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.
  • Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.
  • Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.

Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.

Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.

Tip 1:  The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.

Have a Happy Holidays with Svelt’i

It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. From frenzied last-minute shopping sprees to multiple Christmas parties, we really can’t deny that the holidays are just around the corner. But, despite all the infectious merriment that the holidays bring, we also cannot deny the fact that all the stress the holiday season brings can absolutely take a toll on your skin with all the late-night partying, non-stop eating, and mad traffic we all have to deal with.

So how do we deal with these skin SOS and still be as glowing and youthful during the holidays?

Always Keep Hydrated

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in booze and stay late at night especially with all the Christmas get-togethers you need to attend. But keep in mind that too much alcohol and less sleep can take a toll on the appearance of your skin. “Skin care addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted most especially during the holidays which can be really stressful,” emphasizes Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

Drinking lots of water can help keep your skin hydrated but there are also other ways of doing so.

Purify and Nourish

No matter how late you come home from a night of drinking and partying, never forget to rid your face first off all the make-up you wore and end your day with nourishing your skin. The thorough cleansing and washing away of make-up before sleeping is also an important part of skin care. To cap the skin care regimen, Dr.Salazar recommends a cleanser that can prevent the onset of pores, blemishes, and acne; it will also improve skin tone and heal any skin inflammation.

After washing your face to get all the make-up gunk off, apply a proper facial serum that provides anti-aging effects accelerated by the climate, stress, and even genetics. “It makes you look youthful and energetic. Our stem cell ampoule also reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the skin tone, and softens the skin as well.” Says Dr.Salazar.

Give your skin a detox

The holiday season is definitely a time for gift-giving so why not treat yourself by giving your skin a much-deserved detox? Aside from eating healthy and doing a good amount of exercise, you can also gift yourself with a cream that can help bring back the skin glow that was lost during the holiday frenzy.

“Externally, you can apply every morning our massage cream that infuses the skin with collagen. Collagen rejuvenates the skin and makes it appear youthful. Our production of it reduces as we age, but products like the massage cream infuses regular doses of collagen that add that let the skin’s natural glow to shine.”

“Since Christmas is a time for giving, it is high-time that you give yourself the best gift you can have and that is the right skin care regimen. With all the stress you have to deal with during the holiday season, a trip to a skin clinic such as Svelt’i is a great reward for yourself. Do proper skin care daily and you will see the results,” enthuses Dr. Salazar. “To ensure that you are on the right track, you can confirm the methods and outcome of your skin care regimen with clinical specialists who will advise you accordingly. A monthly visit can do wonders for the overall wellness and aesthetic appearance of your skin.”

Treat Yourself

Of course, one of the best skin regimens ever is to stay healthy and keep a positive outlook because it would definitely manifest on your skin. But since it’s the holiday season, why don’t you give yourself a Christmas treat and go all out on skin care? “If you want to reward yourself this Christmas, go for SkinRenew,” says Dr.Salazar. “It works on three levels that really rejuvenates and firms our skin. It exfoliates, infuses, and oxygenates it. Exfoliation removes the dead cells from the skin and replaces them with new fresh ones. Infusion gives the skin cells the nutrients they need to fight disease and the effects of aging. Oxygenation makes the skin vibrant and gives it that youthful glow.” Nothing would be more rewarding than having healthy and glowing skin to welcome 2018, right?

The holiday season may take a toll on your skin but with these holiday skin care tips, you can keep  your skin looking stress-free and beautiful and welcome 2018 with a bang!

Five Easy Beauty Tips to Be Your Most Attractive Self

Sometimes, life hits you on the blind side. You get worn down, tired and lethargic. As a result, you start to let your physical appearance go. A year later, you look in the mirror and don’t recognize yourself anymore. It can be pretty devastating when you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see. However, you don’t have to stay in this soul-crushing emotional state. There are a few practices you can implement to “get your sexy back” and begin to feel good about yourself again. Consider using these five tips to get started.

1. Mental Health

Your mental health is such an important component of your overall well-being. Since it impacts how you feel so much, it’s important to make the right investments in your mental health. Consider finding an amazing counselor or psychotherapist who can help you reexamine your life. A good mental health professional will also help you walk through some difficult conversations and give you the necessary tools to deal with your emotions and mental processing strategies.

2. Exercise

Exercise is known to allow you to release endorphins and experience a level of euphoria. Knowing this, it’s a good idea to head over to your local gym, jog around the neighborhood or pop a dance workout DVD in and break a sweat. If you continue this process on a daily basis, you’ll naturally feel better about yourself. You’ll also begin to look even better since exercise helps the body maintain a level of optimal health.

3. Makeup

There are a number of reasons why women don’t feel great about their appearance. Perhaps a bad spout of acne has left a lot of dark marks and discoloration on your face. Go to the local drugstore and purchase concealer and a matching foundation. With an extra ten minutes of application, you can feel and look your best. If you just want the ease of a feminine look on a daily basis, consider purchasing a few shades of lipstick. Reds, pinks and corals are always fun and flirty. Lipsticks can easily pull a look together. Another great way to add a bit of flirtiness to your look is with the help of eyelashes. Find your favorite volumizing mascara to make your eyelashes pop. To up the ante a bit, get an eyelash extension kit to get an even more fabulous look.

4. Self-Care Treatments

There are a lot of levels within the topic of self-care. It’s often associated with being pampered at the spa or nail salon. While spa treatments are wonderful, they are one piece of the puzzle. Self-care includes drinking adequate amounts of water so your body can function properly. Self-care includes getting rest when you’re tired and eating nutrient-rich foods. Self-care also involves saying no to the things that drain you and protecting your peace. A lot of times, women want to please those around them. As a result, a woman can easily get burned out and exhausted. It’s hard to take care of yourself when you’re tired and have no energy.

5. Wardrobe

Go stand in front of your closet and take a cold, hard look at what you really wear and what you intend to wear. Get rid of the clothing that just doesn’t fit your body or your style anymore. When your closet is filled with clothes you actually wear, you’re naturally more inspired to put an outfit together. If you don’t already have the classics, go out and purchase two reliable pairs of dark denim jeans. Get a classic, crisp white button=up shirt. Find a few pretty blouses and a sleek pair of flats. You can build on the wardrobe as time goes on. However, it’s essential to have the basics. When you have the basic pieces, you’ll be able to pull a chic look together without a ton of effort. Plus, you’ll feel great about yourself. When you look good, you tend to feel good.

Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. As a woman, you’ll have to decide what these steps look for you in your personal life. No two women are the same. However, as you own and customize these tips to suit you and your desires, you’ll find yourself feeling better about the way you look. Plus, when you take this holistic approach, you’ll be able to feel sexy from the inside out.
