When you’re stressed out, where to go?


Summer is a very hectic season for a family, traveling out of town and trip to the beach are just  some of the activities we all do. As much as we enjoy the holiday, we also experience fatigue from all the planning and preparations. For moms like me who must over-see everything will be go as planned and make sure that everybody enjoys the trip, body and muscle pains from stress is expected, and what could be the better way to relax the weary body? Go to a spa and have a full body massage, yay!!! Have your ‘me-time‘. 🙂

And this is what we did, my daughter and I just visited Jasmine Therapeutic Spa to have that much-needed massage our bodies desperately wanted.

Since it was recommended by my daughter’s friend, we had to try this. The place is neat and the service is good. We both felt relaxed after the one-hour session. They have well-trained therapists to provide the services with very affordable fee. And we didn’t regret that we tried their service.

Their location is easy to find just along the highway in Brixton st. North Fairview, Quezon City. If you happen to be near the place and looking for a good spa and massage services, you can drop by or schedule an appointment and / or ask for home service (yes, they do), here is their contact info: 0916-696-7178


Lavender oil and soft music for a good night sleep


Last month was kinda stressful due to some personal matters and it triggered insomnia attack. Yes, that always happens when I get worried on something, my body wants to retire for the night but my mind is very much awake, giving me headache the next day. I already did some of the rituals like taking a shower to refresh the body and drink hot milk but to no avail.

So I got a lavender bath oil, a gift from a friend and said that it’s good for releasing stress in the body. Took a few drops and rub some on my forehead, neck and back, its fragrance is so calming. And to add to that, I listened to soft music on my phone while laying on bed, said a little prayer and tried to take off my mind from any negative thoughts that could spoil the momentum.

It worked like magic, my eyelids were slowly drooping and I fell asleep. I slept like a baby and my body was so relaxed the next day, with new ideas to tackle the problem and realized it wasn’t as bad as thought it was, this usually happens when your mind is clouded with negativity.

For the music that helps me through the night, I may sing along with a mike like sm7b, check it out at



Mind and Body Rejuvenation

We were on the beach last week and it’s so nice to escape once in a while from the noise and heat of the city. As the summer season here had officially ended and we are experiencing occasional rain showers but the temperature is still high, so a last summer hurray is a welcome respite, even if it took us 6 hours to reached our destination, all worth it.

The sound of the waves in the early morning is music to our ear like as Guitar Center has, michael kelly guitars at a great price!. The cool, fresh breeze and smell of the ocean felt like cleansing our souls from all the anxiety and worries of everyday life. For a while we forgot all the problems and pressures of our daily routine, tensions that could lead to health problems. This is why we need to get away once in a while to rejuvenate and unwind.



Heading to the beach may be the most exciting part of summer. It is almost always part of the itinerary this season for most people. Others prefer to give in to their adrenaline rush climbing that mountain slope or just about anything that gets you that summer tan to fit in the crowd.

Did you know that spending extended hours under the extreme summer sun can pose serious danger to your hair and scalp? The same UV rays that brings damage to your skin without proper protection can equally hurt your hair and scalp.

Below are some of the problems your hair can encounter during the season:

  • Split-Ends – UV rays and extreme high temperature can take their toll on your strands. The heat drains the moisture of your hair out causing breakage.
  • Double Trouble – Rebonded or permed hair needs extra attention as high temperature well as humidity disrupts the cuticle breaking some of the chemical bonds that keep the hair straight or curls and roughing up the cuticle, taking away shine and smoothness.
  • Scalp problem – Scalp may also get sun-burned if you don’t use cover-ups for your head.
  • Grease problem – Summer sun and humidity can bring extra grease on your hair, leaving it vulnerable to damage.
  • Chlorine Stress – Swimming in the pool subjects your hair to chlorine. The outer layers of the cuticle of the hair opens up when you swim and chlorinated water seeps into the center of the hair thus making your hair more brittle.
  • Excessive Salt Water – Salt water can cause the same damage as chlorinated ones. Salt water dries on the hair it creates a high-saline solution which can build up and cause hair to feel dry, weighed down and hard to manage.

All these problem can be addressed by keeping your hair clean and showered after each activities. Take vitamin supplements that benefits you hair such as Vitamin C and Biotin. Getting your hair pampered will also give respite to the sun and chemical abuse.

5 reasons to have laser hair removal

Traditional methods of hair removal (razors, tweezers, waxing, etc.) provide only a temporary and transient relief. On average, a razor is used 2 times a week i.e. 104 times a year which takes 35 hours of your time. Waxing takes 25.5 hours, if you are lucky that is, and it is possible for you to wax every 3 weeks. All this is accompanied by skin irritation, hair getting thicker and stronger, fragged hairs, ingrown hairs, etc.

Imagine epilation without fighting with razors, hot or cold wax odors, and pain. Laser hair removal is the fastest way of permanent epilation – easy, harmless, anti-allergic, painless, without damaging the delicate pores and skin structure. On average, it takes 2 hours for the entire leg epilation, but the treatments are sparse because after the first treatment, you can relax the next 3 months. The laser is up to 60 times faster than electrolysis (another method of permanent epilation) and proved painless.

Laser hair removal has many advantages compared to conventional waxing or shaving, and experience and results after the treatment are unbeatable.

Long-term performance – About 90% of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five treatments. Basically, you will be completely free from unwanted hair while, for example, waxing must constantly be repeated every 20 – 30 days. Laser removes the hair at its root and eventually it stops to grow.

Long-term savings – Although laser hair removal is more expensive than e.g. Egyptian waxing in the beginning, in a long run, laser hair removal saves more than 50 percent of money you would have spent on hair removing products. The laser hair removal cost at Clear Skin Care depends on the surface to be treated and is formed individually for each patient.

No more irritations – Waxing can worsen the condition of the problematic veins, but laser hair removal is performed by acting on the hair itself and not the composition of the surrounding pores and skin tissue. Laser hair removal does not irritate the skin and is irreplaceable when it comes to solving the problem of ingrown hairs, which often leads to inflammation of hair follicles.

Comfort – Waxing is a more painful method than laser hair removal, which, in some areas, is completely painless, and in sensitive areas such as the upper lip, chin and groin causes only a mild tingling sensation.

The safest method of permanent hair removal – The laser can treat all regions of the face and body except the region around the eyes (eyebrows cannot be treated by laser). Patients often have a dilemma whether it is safe to have the armpits and groin area treated due to the glands that are present there. Still, it is completely safe because the laser beam penetrates only a few millimeters into the skin, and glands are found at much greater depth of several centimeters and remain intact during the process.

So, can you believe that after 8 hours in one year you could permanently solve your hairy problem? It sounds incredible, but the laser hair removal is the most attractive aesthetic innovation since a hair dryer. Laser hair removal will save time and money by permanently getting rid of those boring, unwanted hairs while keeping your skin smooth and pain free.
