You know someone is glowing even when they’re not wearing makeup, or is not even turning their head on you, when their crowning glory is well maintained and healthy-looking… After-all, the scientific study of the human mind when it comes on how the hair actually affects our functions and behaviors are simplified and summed up in a modern cliche we like to call “A Good Hair Day”!
So the million dollar question is, are you having “a good hair day”? Continue reading “#gerilenmbf: Of Postiche and Tresses”
One of the things I gave up long time ago is putting on a full-made face. I can’t find time blending the foundation really well with kids in tow and deadlines in my mind. But running errands with a naked face can be bearable when my brows are well-groomed and I’d be fancy with my peeps sometimes with lush and full lashes!
Perfectly groomed brows and long, lush lashes can change your life. But you already knew that.
The question now is—do you know where you can go to get the safest and most natural-looking extensions?

As the holidays approach, Riantique Global Inc. president Ria Castrillo shares some words of wisdom with all the busy women who wear the hats of mother, professional, nurturer, friend and wife: “Liking the way you look is vital to health and happiness. Beauty comes first from within. No matter how much makeup you have slathered on yourself, if you are unhappy, that will still show making you less beautiful.”
Beauty is more than just skin deep, according to Castrillo: It is the outward expression of all that you feel inside. “When you are happy content, that inner glow and beauty will radiate outward,” Castrillo said. “Happy people have younger hearts, younger arteries and a younger real age. Happy people recover more quickly from surgery, cope better with pain, have lower blood pressure and have longer life expectancy than unhappy people.”
So, yes, tis the season for the Up&Up skincare products Riantique exclusively distributes in the Philippines, like Up&Up Skin Lifting Serum by Yuyu Healthcare Inc. This breakthrough skincare product offers a non-surgical solution for enhancing beauty and restoring the skin’s youthful glow in an instant.
“Not only does your health benefit from happiness, there’s nothing like a contented smile, a look of ease and, I believe, this will make you feel years younger.” Castrillo said. “This holiday season is the time for being with your friends and family—something made even more special when you like with the way you look and are happy. This will make the gatherings lighter, brighter and merrier, especially if you are the host at your gathering. Being confident in how you look will see expression in the way you set your table, prepare the food and handle the night’s festivities with grace and confidence.”
“Stress may come along during the holiday season,” she said. “It’s the time of the year when traffic is horrible, the time for late night gatherings before going off to hear the dawn Mass. You will have a busy work schedule, one where you must meet the demands of year-ending work, then fitting in last minute shopping somewhere in between these activities that will leave you tired, haggard and burnt out.”
“This season is all about joy and giving,” Castrillo added, especially for women who are wives and mothers as well. “We will handle it best by organizing our schedules and being well-prepared for the stresses of the holiday season in advance.” So begin by preparing your skin, she advises: “Up&Up Cream is the perfect line filler and wrinkle reducer for those who prefer a fast, safe and practical way to keep their skin youthful. It is the best non-invasive and instant anti-wrinkle solution in the market today.”
Like Up&Up Skin Lifting Serum, Up&Up Cream contains the safest chemicals and the finest botanical blend to regenerate skin cells and stimulate collagen and elastin production for visibly firmer and young-looking skin around the face and neck area, according to Riantique’s lovely head honcho.
“The magic combination is using Up&Up daily, in the mornings so you look fresh all day,” she said. “An organized schedule will help you overcome the busy schedule you need to get through and wearing a smile at your busiest time is the key.”
The best Christmas gifts for friends and loved ones, according to Castrillo, “is my presence. An email, text message or sending a Christmas card letting them know I am here for them despite our respectively busy days.”
After that comes the gift: “I would prefer that the gift is personalized so my friends and loved ones will feel that the gifts are specifically for them so they may feel all the thought, love and effort I have put into these gifts. Then I will choose a box of Up&Up, which will really be useful and helpful since it is a skin-perfecting serum that helps smoothen skin, fills in lines and whitens and brightens the skin so the person who get such a gift can use it to uplift her skin as well as her mood.”
Model Marina Benipayo also gives her own advice on the importance of staying lovely as the years pass: “I would like to think that we are responsible for ourselves, that we feel and look good—no matter what age. Aging is a natural process, yes, but the environment and stress we have to handle hastens the appearance of wrinkles. We need products that target our skincare needs and suit our lifestyle. Up&Up makes my wrinkles less noticeable. Is easy to use and fulfills the promise of youthful-looking skin.” “Preparing for the coming season’s parties and gift-giving takes a lot of planning and time management,” Benipayo said. “Making Up&Up a habit will ensure that, come Christmas, our skin looks as if we haven’t gotten stressed over anything at all.” She would also give Up&Up skincare products as gifts to her loved ones and friends to share the joy it has brought her: “Any woman would be happy to receive Up&Up since it gives them the chance to discover and experience beautiful, radiant and wrinkle-free skin like never before.”
First South Korean dermatological and surgical beauty clinic franchise opens doors to Filipinos
Clara Lee, Korean Hollywood Actress, Oracle Clinic Ambassador
The Philippine beauty industry has been growing at a phenomenal rate, and is expected to grow 6.1% to P139.8 billion in 2016. Increased demand has been driving the growth, as Filipinos become ever-more discerning consumers of beauty and cosmetic products and services. The Korean invasion of beauty products has been a big factor in the industry’s expansion, but its world-renowned cosmetic technology has yet to reach Philippine shores – until now.
Oracle Clinic, the largest networked dermatology, plastic surgery, and obesity clinic in South Korea, opens its doors to Filipinos with its first franchise in the Philippines – the Oracle Beauty Clinic. Its goal: enhancing Philippine beauty through Korean technology and expertise. Its services include top-of-the-line, non-invasive procedures such as skin lightening, tightening, resurfacing, and rejuvenation; anti-aging; hair growth; laser hair removal; signature facials; and body contouring. Plans are also underway for surgical procedures to be offered as part of its roster. In addition, the proprietary line of Dr. Oracle products will soon be made available at the clinic, allowing clients to continue their skincare regimen at home.
Founded by renowned Korean dermatologist, Dr. Ro Young Woo, Oracle Clinic has branches in Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, and China and recently, Hong Kong, and won the Korea Industry Grand Prize in 2011 for its top-class Korean technology, training, and experience. Its first Philippine branch is staffed by doctors and registered nurses who not only have extensive experience in beauty, dermatology, and plastic surgery, but were also trained in South Korea to know first-hand the secret behind the success of Oracle Beauty Clinic.
Says Susan Dimacali, one of the partners of the Oracle Beauty Clinic franchise in the Philippines, “From Koreanovelas to Seoul food to KPop, South Korea is particularly close to my heart. I have always been amazed at their dominance in the beauty industry, driven as it is by innovation, technology, and a true understanding of beauty. Opening the doors of Oracle Beauty Clinic to Filipinos is exciting, because now we are able to take our love for all things Korean one step further – by using their state-of-the-art technology to enhance our innate Philippine beauty. We welcome everyone to experience and see first-hand what truly world-class dermatological services are like.”
Adding to the excitement of the country’s first South Korean dermatological franchise is the face of Oracle Beauty Clinic, Clara Lee. The South Korean actress, singer, dancer, host, and model rose to fame with Gwiyomi Song 2 and the Koreanovela Emergency Couple. Lee, who has music videos, television shows, and movies to her name, is thrilled to be part of the Korean beauty phenomenon in the Philippines. She states, “As a Korean, I am very much aware of our impact on beauty and culture, especially with the popularity of KPop and Koreanovelas. It warms my heart to know that we have fans in the Philippines who support us. This is why it is a privilege to be a sort of ambassador for my country and be an international face in a local market. I am honored to be part of the Oracle Beauty Clinic family and I invite all Filipinos and Koreans in the Philippines to visit the first branch in Manila.”
