4 safe and painless ways to rejuvenate the skin with Hello Glow

 

4 safe and painless ways to rejuvenate the skin with Hello Glow

“Skin rejuvenation” is a very popular term for skincare products that give life to dull and dry skin. However, the common notion is that a “rejuv” can be painful, intense and even dangerous because of the harsh chemicals that they contain, often resulting in red, sore and peeling skin. The truth is, rejuvenating one’s skin can be painless and safe. Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set is a complete blend of high-tech active ingredients that work to give your skin the glow and refreshed look, the safe and natural way.

The Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set comes with Low pH Hydrating Cleanser, Get Bright Toner, Ultralight ++ Matte Sunscreen with SF 30, and the Nourishing Night cream. Hello Glow uses professionally compounded active ingredients like AHA’s, PHA’s, Bakuchiol, Niacinamide, and Micro-encapsulated Retinol to effectively rejuvenate skin, balanced with Hexylresorcinol, Centella Asiatica, Ceramides, and Hyaluronic Acid to prevent irritation that aims to improve and clarify skin texture, unclog pores, and treat acne. Safe for all skin types, great for dry, normal, combination, and oily skin! 

So how does one safely rejuvenate the skin? Here are some safe and painless steps to achieve that rejuvenated, youthful and glowing complexion:

It’s important to wash your face daily with cleanser to exfoliate dirt that you may have accumulated. So, first things first, wet your face and apply the Low pH Hydrating Cleanser in slow and circular motions. Leave for two to three minutes before rinsing then pat your face dry.

Next, apply the Get Bright Toner on every corner of your face with a cotton pad to help soak up oil and remove dirt from your skin.

Third, apply the Ultralight ++ Matte Sunscreen with SF 30, at least fifteen minutes before you go outside to make sure that your skin absorbs the ingredients. This oil-free moisturizer comes in a gel form that is easily absorbed by the skin and it dries matte without any white cast or greasiness, perfectly comfortable to use under makeup.

Lastly, apply a pea sized amount of the Nourishing Night Cream to your face up to the base of your neck. Make sure to do these daily before bedtime so you can wake up with a skin that feels fresh and moisturized!

Get that healthy glowing skin with these simple and safe steps with Hello Glow Advanced Rejuvenating Set for an affordable price of PHP 360, available on Hello Glow’s official store page on Lazada and Shopee! Also available in Watsons and all other leading departments and supermarket stores nationwide.

Conquer the Battlefield with Seven Superior Gaming Boosts from the latest #OPPOReno6 Series

Conquer the Battlefield with Seven Superior Gaming Boosts from the latest #OPPOReno6 Series

Every Filipino gamer knows that mobile gaming, whether it’s a friendly match-up or a full-blown tournament, requires handsets with the best capabilities since speed and focus are key. Your reaction speed and reflexes are crucial to get an upper hand against opponents so it is essential to have a gaming device that not only complements your strategies, but also prevents annoying distractions, pop-ups, and technical slowdowns.

OPPO’s newest innovation, the Reno6 Series, is designed with a flurry of gaming features that will help unleash the champion in you. Fasten your seatbelts and gear up for the best mobile gaming experience ever with these powerful features!

 

[1] Fast Forward into the Game

OPPO Ambassador Gloco Gaming shared that one of his pet peeves is the waiting time at the start of every game. “I’m sure everyone can relate to the feeling when you’re so excited to play, especially with your friends, but it literally takes a while for the game to load. So when I’m looking for my gaming device, I really prefer one that allows me to skip through the trailers and head on straight to the game itself,” Gloco said.


OPPO has created a specialized mode just for this, called Quick Startup! Available on selected games, this mode intelligently analyzes the game and fast forwards through the loading screen, studio logo, healthy game advice, and advertisements - getting you right back in the game without wasting precious time!


[2] Feel the Pain, Feel the Gain

Unlike a Dualshock controller, most mobile games only trigger standard vibrations, due to the basic vibration motors found in most phones. Eric “Eruption” Tai shared, “When you play a game on your mobile phone for the first time, you still feel excited and you even find yourself surprised when there’s actual vibration. But sadly, overtime it becomes more superficial, and eventually uncomfortable so you just turn it off.”


The Reno6 Series comes with a specialized Z and X axis motor, which can produce extremely minute and specialized vibration waveforms – 4D vibration! This allows you to feel all the different effects of a game, for instance, an immersive-feeling ‘hit’ to your hands if you get shot in PUBG. Don’t just play the game - feel the game!


[3] 90Hz of Pure Fluidity

For Ashley Gosiengfiao, what makes a game extra enjoyable is the smooth game display. Most screen refresh rates (number of times a new image is drawn on the screen) are capped at 60Hz and this is okay for movies, but not really ideal for games. Ashley shared, “The best display is key to appreciating the overall aesthetic of any game. But for games like Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), low refresh rates sometimes cause screen tears for other devices, which can lead to headaches after long periods of gameplay.”


This is where the Reno6 Series shines. With a refresh rate of 90Hz, everything just looks smoother. Animations execute flawlessly and playing action games will be a breeze from now on. Never suffer distortion and keep yourself aligned!


[4] Bring the Game into Focus - Literally

Every gamer knows that when it comes to battle, you need laser focus. The same goes for one of the members of Philippine Champs Blacklist International. “What shakes off our focus in the middle of a game is when we’re about to launch a crucial attack, annoying pop-up notifications suddenly appear on our screens. Of course, we would try to swipe them away, but what happens at times is that the phone misinterprets it as a tap and exits our game,” shared ohmyV33nus.


Never again, with the Reno6 Series’ Game Focus Mode. Innovatively designed by OPPO, this mode locks your phone down to nothing but your game, leaving you to focus only on your moves - nothing more, nothing less. 

[5] Keep Your Head High, Keep Your Ping Low

The Reno6 Series is equipped with 5G modems. 5G, a technology which offers internet speeds almost double that of 4G, will ensure that you have stable and worry-free connection, especially during the heat of battle or in the last few minutes of a MLBB match as the circle closes in on you.


Gone are the days of lag and high latency. Keep your ping ultra-low as you march your way into victory!


[6] Push Your Phone to the Max

For Liyab Esports member MoraytaBoy, storage is vital to their gaming device. He explained, “Competitive mobile games usually challenge the capabilities of any phone because they eat up significant amounts of RAM, CPU and GPU cycles. With increased power draw and temperature, phones just heat up and the battery drains a lot faster than usual.”


Hyperboost 4.0, a special technology exclusive to OPPO, balances your power consumption and temperature while intelligently maintaining your game performance and framerate, allowing you to push your phone to the max! This works especially well on long sessions whether it’s just one game all throughout or multiple titles in succession.


[7] Power Up for Your Next Game

All of OPPO’s Ambassadors agree that playing games on a mobile device for extended periods of time inevitably drains battery levels. While plugging a cable in may solve the problem, it can be counterintuitive for their hands just like other gamers since they are holding their phones in landscape mode.


Cue in SuperVOOC 2.0, OPPO’s proprietary technology which can charge your phone from 0-100 in slightly over half an hour. Finish the round, plug the phone in, grab a drink, and come back for the next one. Game on and push yourself into Elo Heaven!


The Reno6 Series is expertly designed to have truly innovative gaming capabilities. Own one now and you will never feel the pain of a slow device, not just for gaming, but for everything else, too.


OPPO Reno6 Z 5G is now officially available in the Philippines via OPPO Brand and online stores nationwide, partner dealers, Shopee, and Lazada for only PHP19,999. While OPPO Reno6 5G will be available starting August 28 via aforementioned sales channels for only PHP26,999.

4 health tips during this rainy season

Prevent the flu by staying at home and following current quarantine protocols.

 4 health tips during this rainy season

The coronavirus may be the main concern of many people right now, but it’s still important to be wary of the other diseases you can get during this time. With the rainy season, the damp and humid weather can lead to an increase of several viruses, most especially the flu.

 

A contagious illness and a serious public health concern, the flu can be severe and deadly. In some cases, complications may lead to viral or bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and ear and sinus infections, especially in children. It may also cause central nervous system and heart problems and inflammation of the heart and of the sac around it. Moreover, a more severe flu infection may worsen long-term medical conditions, like congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes.

 

The World Health Organization stated that the flu is linked to three to five million cases of severe illness and approximately 290,000 to 650,000 deaths worldwide each year. With these risks, it is a must for us to protect ourselves against this infection, especially during this season.

 

AXA Philippines, one of the country’s leading insurance providers, offers some tips to stave off the flu and its complications and stay healthy.

 

Avoid large crowds. The flu is contagious and is usually transmitted by droplets when someone with the virus coughs, sneezes, or talks. Since the flu virus spreads quickly in crowded and confined spaces, it’s best to stay at home and follow current quarantine protocols. However, when you really have to go outside to work or get your essentials, make sure to wear a mask and observe proper social distancing.

 

Clean your home. It’s best to clean and disinfect your home regularly since the flu virus can live on hard surfaces. Make sure to disinfect high-contact objects in your home, such as doorknobs, light switches, tables, and countertops, among others. Also, stock up on hand soaps and sanitizers so others in your home can clean their hands whenever they come in contact with these surfaces.

 

Boost your immune system. Having a strong immune system is your first line of defense against the flu as it can help your body fight off infections, decrease the severity of your illness and help you recover faster. Strengthen your immune system by having a healthy, nutrient-rich diet with fruits and vegetables, staying physically active, avoiding smoking and drinking, reducing your stress levels, and getting enough sleep.

 

Get a flu shot. Get in touch with your doctor for getting an annual flu vaccination. This is important to get every year because flu viruses evolve quickly and they adjust the vaccine accordingly each time. Having a flu shot not only protects you but helps protect others who are vulnerable to the flu.

 

Since the flu can be hard on your body, and serious complications may arise, it’s best to always be prepared. For medical concerns and expenses due to unexpected health setbacks, getting health insurance coverage can also be a big help. For instance, there’s AXA MyLifeChoice, a protection and investment plan that can be personalized into a health plan that prepares you for health setbacks with critical illness coverage for 57 critical illnesses, including heart attack, stroke, and cancer. MyLifeChoice gives you the freedom to personalize your plan according to your unique needs, budget, and more.

4 best parenting hacks you should try

 The 4 best parenting hacks you should try

Try these tips for better parenting in the new normal

A group of people sitting at a table with food on it

 

Whether we’re ready for it or not, parenting definitely changed during the pandemic. As everyone has to work or take classes at home for their health and safety, the needs of a parent have evolved.


If you’ve been struggling a little to match the demands of parenting in the new normal, worry not—here are a few tips to help you adapt to these times.


1. Set a schedule

Make a plan for yourself and help your kids plan their day. First, organize your day so you can focus better on your necessary tasks. Then, help your kids organize their day so that the important things during their online classes are prioritized. This will allow them to look forward to relaxing and unwinding after all the schoolwork is done. When kids know they have some rest and recreation time to look forward to, they’ll be able to participate better in their remote learning.


2. Encourage healthy routines in the household

Maintaining a proper and healthy lifestyle is considered to be one of the most important things you can do to achieve good physical, mental, and social well-being — especially in the new normal. A fun activity you can do with your kids is exercising regularly. To make it more interesting, instead of the usual exercises, try exploring games that’ll make them break a sweat such as DIY obstacle courses, treasure hunts, and many more. Be creative!


3. Take a midday shower

One good way to refresh your kids and keep them going is to have them take a quick shower in the middle of the day, preferably after lunch. You can do it too! It gets rid of the midday fatigue that’s built up from staring at a screen all morning, and it will energize them (and you) for the rest of the day.


4. Bond over activities and food

There are many moments in this pandemic where your kids will need you to be there for them. You need to set aside time in the day to give them your complete and undivided attention. Try playing fun activities and games with your kids and see how much stress can be lifted every day. Bond over mealtimes with food that will make them happy, such as Jollibee’s Jolly Spaghetti! The meatiest, cheesiest, and sweet-sarap na walang katulad taste of Jolly Spaghetti will make these moments truly memorable! It’s always better to put a smile on their face with their favorite food while spending time at home.


Get the Jolly Spaghetti from your nearest Jollibee store for only PHP 50.00 solo, and PHP 200.00 for a Family Pan! Have them safely delivered to you via the Jollibee Delivery App, JollibeeDelivery.com, #87000, GrabFood, and foodpanda! Also available in Drive-Thru and Take Out!
