She is forever grateful to the people who from the beginning supported her idea which she thought was initially a crazy idea. She credits and thanks her boyfriend Paolo Contis who paused and encouraged her to start building her dream and vision.

And the most important reason she did this according to her “how can I not thank my little one who has been my ultimate inspiration! Aki my love you have brought so much joy to mommy’s life and I cannot put into words how grateful I am to God for your presence in my life! In everything I do, you are my reason! God provides for me so I can provide for you, so I can take good care of a precious

WELCOMING THE WELLNESS MOMS MOVEMENT

As moms, we’re all so busy focused on a wide range of responsibilities. We make sure our family members are well cared for, we manage our careers, we maintain our homes, we help our friends, and we actively support our communities — and, the list goes on. With ‘to do’ lists that never seem to get checked off, it’s very easy to justify putting off tasks related to our own personal health and wellness.

But, consider this … how do you think a car would function if someone didn’t change the oil, check the brakes, check and rotate the tires, and get tune-ups on a routine basis? Well, moms, we must all keep our bodies running like well-oiled machines. Paying attention and prioritizing our own health — by scheduling routine exams, staying informed about our health, and taking preventive measures — will enable us to function at our absolute best. And after all, isn’t that what we want? To be the best wife, mother, daughter, friend, professional and philanthropist we can be? Continue reading

That’so: A breakthrough in beauty

 

A never-before-seen beauty breakthrough has arrived in the Philippines through That’so, an Italian skincare brand renowned for its “fast beauty” concept.

 

That’so Philippines co-founders and Filipina-Canadian sisters Queenie Subido and Flecett Aspilla bring in the breakthrough for Filipinos to experience. Their first-ever offering is That’so Pure White, a patented skin-brightening and anti-aging treatment that addresses hard-to-solve woes including discoloration, hyperpigmentation, fines lines and wrinkles.

 

But what makes the treatment a first in the country? Subido explains that it will be administered by doctors only using the That’so Pure White nano-spray machine filled with the Pure White lotion, which is packed with biomimetic peptides.

 

She adds, “Biomimetic peptides, which mimics the skin and improves its overall appearance, are sprayed all over the body in nano-particles so that it is absorbed deep down the layers of the skin.”

 

Moreover, That’so Pure White’s biomimetic peptides are derived from natural ingredients—cinnamon to be exact—making it an all-natural spray lotion. Safe and gentle to all skin types, it is European Health Regulations-Certified and FDA-Approved.

 

“We promise results. In just two to three sessions, you can easily see the change. But to achieve maximum results, we recommend to get a total of 24 sessions,” shares Aspilla noting that it is best to take home That’so Pure White On the Go Instant Brightening Spray for everyday maintenance.

 

Aspilla and Subido, who grew up and settled in Canada, both attest to the effectivity of That’so. In fact, they were the first to provide That’so’s whitening services to North America.

 

Finally, these beautiful businesswomen are introducing That’so Pure White in the Philippines.

 

“Our objective really is to educate the Filipinos that there are better, safer and healthier alternatives out there for skincare procedures,” Subido relates.

 

Aspilla echoes, “That is true. Ours is non-invasive and without harmful chemicals because we believe that beauty should be painless.”

 

Looking forward, the co-founders share, “In the future, we plan to offer other That’so treatments and products so that through them, Filipinos can embrace any skin color that they want.”

 

That’so Pure White is currently available at Floor D Suite, D2 Medical Plaza at Makati Medical Center, Makati City. It will soon be offered by different cosmetology clinics nationwide.

Johnsons Baby Bedtime Launch

JOHNSON’S® Showcases the Benefits of the First Clinically Proven Bedtime Routine for babies, and Spotlights Bedtime App. Grounded on Science.

 Mothers all around the world share a similar challenge: getting their babies to sleep and stay sleeping. Studies indicate that 20-30 percent of babies experience sleep problems, including difficulty in falling asleep and sleeping through the night. This does not only cause problems for mothers, but also impacts the healthy development of their babies.

Research shows that establishing a routine is one of the most important things parents can do to help their baby sleep better through the night. Recognising this, JOHNSON’S® has launched a clinically proven Bedtime Routine that engages the senses and helps baby fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer in 3 steps:

• Bath: A bedtime routine, including a warm bath with Johnson’s bedtime™ baby bath, helps baby know its time to sleep.
• Massage: A massage, using Johnson’s bedtime™ baby lotion can help baby sleep better. Familiar and pleasant scents can make baby feel happy and relaxed and lead to better well-being by enhancing baby’s mood and emotions.
• Quiet Time: The moments before bed are an opportunity to help baby wind down through quiet time activities, such as reading, singing or listening to music. Complement quiet time with Johnson’s bedtime baby powder to freshen and keep baby feeling comfortable while sleeping.

Complement the Johnson’s® 3-Step Bedtime ™ routine with Johnson’s® bedtime baby oil to warm baby before bath.

Benefits of a Bedtime Routine on Healthy Baby Development

As a pioneer in the science of baby sleep, JOHNSON’S® understands the importance of sleep for happy, healthy baby development. “Sleep is very critical to a baby’s growth and development. That is why we created the first routine clinically proven to lead to better nights for both moms and their babies,” shared Bessie Campillo, JOHNSON’S® Franchise Marketing Manager.

“Every one of our bedtime products is backed by science and enriched with a special blend of gentle and calming aromas designed to enhance the bedtime routine for both baby and mom. We know that babies grow physically, cognitively and emotionally with better sleep and if moms and their babies don’t sleep well, then their interaction with each other is not optimal, which also has its own effects,” she added.

“Research shows that sleep rhythms begin to develop at around 6 weeks, and most babies are developmentally capable of regular sleep-wake cycles by 3 to 6 months. As your baby begins to understand the difference between night and day, it’s the perfect time to help improve his sleep routine,” shared Dr. Agnes Tirona- Remulla, a specialist in ENT-Head and Neck Surgery, subspecializing in Sleep Medicine and Surgery.

“Proper sleep also impacts the immune system and is critical in weight regulation, promotes cognitive development by building memory and supports learning, and helps improve social skills, among many other benefts Dr. Remulla added.

“JOHNSON’S® has always been focused on maximizing daily moments for both parents and their babies, to stimulate baby’s senses and provide parents an opportunity to nurture baby’s ability to learn, think, love and grow,” shares Mrs. Campillo. “A nightly ritual is notonly an ideal opportunity for bonding, but is equally critical to promoting the cognitive, physical and emotional growth of babies,” she adds.

Tonight We Sleep™ App.: Grounded in Science

As part of the nightly routine, JOHNSON’S® has likewise launched the BEDTIME® baby sleep app. – one that has been designed to equip mothers with information on how to ensure longer and better sleep for their baby.

Now available in countries around the world, the App features a proprietary customized sleep profile tool to get research based analysis of baby’s sleeping habits, a lullaby album and ambient sound mixer to make playing lullabies convient, information on the Bedtime Routine and products, and access to JOHNSON’S® sleep experts to answer sleep-related questions.

Moms can follow their baby’s daily sleep habits, including how long she sleeps and when she wakes, and even produces a sleep analysis score that comes with recommendations from JOHNSON’S® sleep experts. Parents can also get advice from our JOHNSON’S® sleep experts on sleep-related topics such as naptime, before bed, and night waking’s and even submit sleep-related queries, and receive personalized advice.

JOHNSON’S® encourages moms and dads to learn how to establish a good nighttime routine early on. To know more about Johnson’s and how you can enhance a baby’s bed time experience, visit www.johnsonsbaby.comhttp://www.johnsonsbaby.com/bedtime.
