I am obsessed with skin care. I think it’s my way of making up for lost time (i.e. I only started wearing sunscreen on my face a year ago!) and my bad habits so I always make an effort to nourish and care for my skin. It is the largest organ of our body, after all, so we really need to take care of it!
A while ago, I blogged about how my skin type changed from normal to oily without my noticing. For a time, I was misguided and started skipping moisturizer and using harsh soaps on my face to strip off all the oil, thinking that that was the reason behind my overactive sebaceous glands. Obviously, this was a mistake and you should never ever do that! My skin was dehydrated and producing more oil to make up for it. I finally smartened up, started using a water-based moisturizer, and switched to makeup meant for oily skin… and what a difference it made! On a good day, I can last without having to blot at all.
Last week, I attended the launch of Mega We Care‘s Nourishing Night Oil at Blue Water Day Spa in Ortigas Avenue. You guys might already be familiar with the company; they’re the ones behind Enat 400 (the purest Vitamin E softgels in the market), Pynocare (softgels that fix discoloration problems and lighten age spots. I need to start taking these!), and Glow (capsules to restore your skin’s radiance and bring out its natural glow; they’re packaged in those purple boxes that I always see at Mercury Drug!). Joining their sizable list of skin care solutions is their dry skin rejuvenator, the Nourishing Night Oil (NNO).
S’much as I loved being that pink-haired girl, it was about time I changed things up a bit! Not gonna lie, I thought this was going to end up a DISASTER! Praise the hair gods it turned out KINDA OKAY! I don’t feel like re-typing everything here so if it pleases you, just click here to read why this started out as a crappy dye job.
LET’S DO PICTURES! LOTS OF PICTURES!
There are a few of things I like about having pink (or any unnatural/loud/non-Asian color) hair. It’s different. In a nation where the majority of the population are too scared to go beyond black or brown, I stand out. Friends have no trouble picking me out in a crowd (works well in airports) or from a distance and cameramen tend to gravitate towards my head. Like, I’m pretty sure those dudes from Myx or ASAP covering a show would have no interest in getting my opinion to broadcast on national television if I didn’t have pink hair, ya know?
For Hanson Day (May 6), HansonPH is giving away two Hanson.net memberships (my, that’s a lot of “Hanson” in one sentence). A fan club membership costs $40 annually and comes with a bunch of perks, my favorites being access to exclusive content (fan club member forums and From Us To You’s aka FUTYs from the band) and their yearly EPs. It’s honestly the best $40 I’ve ever spent because I also got to attend a Members Only Event and a fanclub meet and greet when they were here last month!
The HansonPH giveaway ends in a week. Click here for details!
I was 19 when I first saw Hanson. The best seats we could get cost a little over 3000PHP— money that I, a college student relying on mommy’s wallet, didn’t have. I didn’t want to ask my mom for money for Hanson so what did I do? I took the money meant for my college course’s team building seminar, met up with my friends at Araneta’s ticketing booth first thing in the morning, and used it to buy a fifth row ticket (rows 1 to 4 weren’t for sale).
Obviously, if money wasn’t a problem then, it wasn’t going to be an issue now. When we got confirmation from Yam (who works for Dayly Entertainment, if you haven’t figured that out yet) that they’d be playing a second show in Cebu, I wasted no time booking flights for me and Sanya.
There are a handful of things that signify adulthood; some of these are: your first car, your first apartment (or house, or mortgage), and your first credit card. Like most things that matter, it takes some research (or experience) to discover what’s right for you and your lifestyle.
