Haute Hair for the Holidays


Christmas is a great time for merrymaking, but then it can also be a terrible season for stress. Work may greatly increase as the holidays approach; add to that a heavy rotation of parties, intense decision-making on what gifts to buy and frantic scheduling for gatherings.

All these frenzied activities may take a toll on your appearance, especially your hair. Your mane may tend to misbehave at this point, just when you’re about to attend one party after another. But don’t stress yourself out, as the acclaimed Japanese hair-care brand, SYOSS, gives you the haute coiffure pampering these holidays. Continue reading »

HyC150 – The Gift of Beauty


Youth and beauty – these are two things that your friends (and yourself) might put on your must-have list at any given time.  To always look young and energetic, dazzling everyone with your attractiveness and a winning spirit that shows your can-do attitude.  To always have that adrenaline flowing through your veins, confident that you can move and act in the pace you want.

While you can’t turn back the hands of time, there’s a better way to give yourself, friends, and loved ones these two desirable, yet priceless gifts this holiday season. Experience the pleasure of tapping on a new source of power that can delay the aging process and usher in a new phase of rejuvenation, both physical and mental.  The good news is, the gift of youth and beauty can be yours in one lovely gift – the new Premium HyC 150!

This powdered collagen drink manufactured by FINE Japan Co. Ltd. Is now distributed in the Philippines and easily accessible to anyone who wants to feel young, move young and look young.  This new product has been called the new fountain of youth because it contains the optimal combination of effective anti-aging nutrients, plus more in one sachet. Mix with your beverage of choice or just add plain water and its semi-sweet flavor makes it even more enticing to drink during breakfast, snack time, or an after dinner refresher.

The Premium HyC 150 makes rejuvenation possible through its two main nutrients:  collagen and hyaluron.  Collagen slows down the aging process and prevents dryness of skin, wrinkles, and age pores.  It also counters the effects that excessive sun exposure, pollution, and bad weather can do to our skin.  Meanwhile, hyaluron gives you moisture to lubricate joints and tissues allowing you to stay active.

More than the potent combination of collagen and hyaluron, Premium HyC 150 also contains a good dose of Pearl Coix Extract that brightens skin, making you look fairer.  Long used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, it also helps eliminate freckles, heal tumors, and remove inflammation from the body.  Complementing this is Vitamin C, which makes your skin healthy, spot- and blemish-free.  Make it a habit to take Premium HyC 150 daily – then see and feel the difference in just a few days.

Youth and beauty in one sachet.  It’s a convenient gift you can give your friends this Christmas – and see its lovely effects last longer than the season.
