Head of the family: not just a provider but a father

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all.

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives.

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs.

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Nutramedica Inc. introduced a revolutionary product that aims to address this problem: NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss. Being the only topical scalp lotion in the country that is made from 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients all working synergistically, it’s perfect for all the heads of the family out there, be they biological or not.

But these days the one place to really go to for a total professional therapeutic experience is Dermcare Luxe. Awaiting here for you is a royal treatment guaranteed to delight your senses, soothe your minds, and melt away you stress as you luxuriate in rejuvenating treatments.

THE LADY BEHIND THE DERMCARE VISION

In the late 1980s, Zenaida E. Palisoc, the enterprising and visionary businesswoman with years of experience in the wellness and beauty industry, launched her first Dermcare shop, selling various dermatologic-tested products. Until the 90s, many clients were so sold in her products that she decided to try a new selling concept, transforming her salon into a total health, beauty and wellness center to serve a more diverse market. Ever since, Palisoc says, she never gets tired of researching better ways, modern techniques and innovating organic beauty ingredients tested by trusted chemists to come up with perfect regimens for her clients, adding that, “My Dermcare story is a story of success and commitment to provide consumers with top-of-the-line beauty products and services at superior value.”

Situated mostly in prestigious high-traffic malls nationwide, Palisoc emphasizes that, “As a professionally managed organization, we are committed to provide only the best to the public as we continuously find ways to improve our services by embracing more innovation.”

Dermcare offers facials and luxurious spa treatments that stimulates the body’s own healing process plus lavish body scrubs and signature skin and body treatments – each delightful to make clients feel good all over. She claims that Dermcare is now proud to offer one of its transforming cosmetic skin services that will result in much fresher and youthful looking skin. “As a total center for wellness and beauty, we also have specialized services for hair and other dermatological needs provided by duly-license physicians and therapists.” Palisoc adds.

Not to forget that all of Dermcare’s clinics and spas are manned by trained and certified therapists with over 15 years of combined experience in the beauty and wellness industry. Ms. Palisoc, President and CEO is a licensed beauty therapist from the Confederation of International Beauty Therapists and Cosmetologists (CIBTAC) of London. She is also a DOH-licensed massage therapist herself. As a seal of good business sense, she is armed with a Master in Entrepreneurship degree from the Ateneo Graduate School of Business where she graduated gold medalist recently.

Like other big-business companies with a vision and progressive outlook, Dermcare is not only out to provide better and quality services to its clients – it also supports the education of some college students through its JLP Scholarship Foundation, which Palisoc formed and named after her late husband Joselito Palisoc. She says Dermcare supports the foundation by allocating a substantial portion of its income to student-beneficiaries who are enrolled in various universities in the country. As she has probably reached her dream so far, it is time, she says, to share her blessings to those who need help. “My scholars have become my passion now. Their success is also my pride. The more I can provide help, the more I feel blessed.” She concludes.

Dermcare has opened a new branch at SM Premier recently. They are located at 3rd floor beside Nailaholics Spa and SM Cinema. The photos below are taken at their branch at SM Premier Downtown CDO.

NOVUHAIR SUMMER HAIR CARE TIPS

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.

Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is made of 19 Natural ingredients which includes herbal components such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the natural essences of rosemary and peppermint.

A Day Well-Spent at Nailaholics

It is not everyday that I could visit Cagayan de Oro but when I do, I always see to it that I spent my time well. This isn’t the first time I got serviced by Nailaholics but this is my first time to try Gel Manicure and Gel Pedicure.

Gel Manicure and Gel Pedicure is a bit pricey compared to normal manicure and pedicure that I used to have. But I eventually ordered for this one to at least try it and check if it’s worth the hefty price. Nailaholics has a package for this one, and calls it “Color my Cabana” which includes Gel Manicure, Gel Pedicure and Foot Spa which costs 1,690php.

Nailaholics prepared a feast for us, well they offer SPA PARTY and you can order it and reserved it for your birthday together with your girlfriends if you want. As for me, I spent the SPA PARTY with my CDO BLOGGERS FAMILY. We truly enjoyed our time, getting pampered, having a foot massage or foot spa while eating. Then have our preferred manicure+pedicure right after. Some of us chose the normal kind and most of us chose the Gel type.

Nailaholics has branches all over the Philippines and it is not quite hard to find because most of their shops are located in big malls in the city. I love the ambiance of their nail salon because it makes me feel I am somewhere near the beach. They offer different packages so you can choose which fits your budget. I love how they named their different packages, they actually have : Lush Lagoon (manicure+pedicure+foot spa with foot massage) , Gold Coast (manicure+pedicure+foot spa with Detoxifying Mud Mask) and Vitamin Sea (manicure+pedicure+foot spa) to name a few.

Nailaholics also offer Waxing, Threading, Massage Therapy, Nail Extension, Eyelash Enhancement, and Paraffin Treatment.

They have recently opened a new branch in Cagayan de Oro. It is located at 4th Level, Nailaholics SM CDO PREMIER and they still have the old branch at 3rd Flr, Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro City.

It doesn’t hurt to date yourself, once in awhile.

The gift of healthy ‘crowning glory’ fit for the queen this Mother’s Day



CLICHE it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.
No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Still drooling over the ways on how to spend this time of the year again with her? Well, you may opt for the basics of gift-giving from simple trinkets to expensive items. But take note, your appreciation of her is not equated by the tag price of your present. It’s the thought that counts, as an adage says.

You may consider a set of hankies that will bring back the memory of her wiping out her tears of happiness upon knowing that she’s conceiving a li’l creature inside her womb. That’s you, of course. A loose yet comfy clothes shall make her remember that sort of a duster or preggy dress she wore in the laborious yet exciting “nine months” of gestation.
Why not a pillow that she could hug as tight as she embraced you after giving birth, or maybe a brassiere for protection of the very bosom she fed you with during infancy? A bed will bring to her mind your tot years when you started to crawl and roll over it freely.
Shoes are a girl’s best friend, too, like your mom. Either sky-high heels or flattering flats, there’s a pair to match every bit of her fantasy. For as long as it brings comfort to her feet, it’s more than enough to reciprocate the ease you had when you took your first walk with her guidance back then. If it isn’t her thing, though, a flip-flop will cause her to think that she also disciplined you through the proverbial “rule of slipper” hit on your buttocks while you were growing up.

 

Much to her delight, a bling ring will be worthy of your dear investment to show your deep appreciation of her just like when she never failed to recognize you with a pat on the back for simple good deeds or a job well done in your lifetime.

Stuck for an idea yet? Here’s a simple but meaningful token of gratitude that for sure will make a big difference and, eventually, pull off a surprise for the celebrant herself: The NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack which includes the topical scalp lotion, herbal shampoo and conditioner. Yes, you read it right.

Still not convinced enough, why don’t you spray a liberal amount of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion onto your mom’s scalp and massage it for five to ten minutes. You may not even know that with such a plain gesture of yours, it can melt her heart as it reminds her of the past when she used to do the same thing while you were still young, either as a trick to put you easily on a slumber or merely a relief every time you got sick. Those caressing hands of yours, likewise, imbibe your act of giving back the “natural care from mothers” like her.

Whatever impression it may have on her, what’s tangible she could gain is that you’re giving her nature’s gift of health. NOVUHAIR Topical Scalp Lotion is so unique that it combines 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients––all working synergistically to help address hair problems from growth to vanishing. This breakthrough product helps to rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the moist of her tress from root to tip, aids in stimulating the growth of her hair and helps prevent it from excessive falling, while improving the overall appearance.

More than anything else, NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack may be one of the most precious gifts that your mom could ever receive in her entire life. Well, she’s the most important woman in your life after all. Hence, she deserves to be treated like a queen with that vibrant, bouncy and shiny “crowning glory.”

NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack is beyond compare. So, don’t think twice to wrap it as your present for her this Mother’s Day and, if ever, for life.
