Why Should You Wear Wigs?

Tuesday, October 31, 2017
This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Periwigs or more commonly known as wigs have been around since time immemorial worn by ancient Egyptians to protect their shaved heads from the heat of the sun. Phoenicians, Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, and Jews in Israel on the other hand have sported wigs for fashion. However, in the past decades wearing wigs is not considered a norm.

Fast forward to 2017, hair pieces have increased in popularity accrediting its comeback to celebrities and social media as well as the huge improvements in application of wigs and its variety. Who could not ignore Beyoncé , Katy Perry, Zendaya, and even Princess Diana? They wear and change their wig or hair piece as often as they apply makeup. In fact, wearing one is now seen as a luxury. Below are great reasons to wear wigs.




1. Save money

Instead of having your hair done by your professional stylist, donning a wig will instantly give your desired look for a cheaper cost. Be sure to take care of the wig to make it last a long time.


2. Changing styles is easy

In fact, this may be the most popular reason why women rock wigs nowadays. Change color as often as you want and more importantly, you can try different lengths of hair. You will never have to stick with one style, change it if you are bored with your look. Lace front wigs are in these days because it gives a more natural look.

3. Say goodbye to bad hair day.

There are days when no matter what we do, our hair is not as good as we want it to be. Wigs save you time and effort. Purchase the style you want, use your fingers to comb and fix it a bit and you're ready to face the day.


4. Wigs can be used as comfortable and affordable alternative to medical solutions for restoration of hair.

Conceal hair problems in an instant. It is a great solution for receding hair lines, hair thinning or hair loss due to poor nutrition, abuse to hair, and illnesses like cancer.

There is no reason to be embarassed any more. Everybody deserves a crowning glory that matches their style, preference, and budget. Divatress has a wide variety of wigs and hair products that suits your needs.
















Never Let Lose a Strand Of Your Patience


Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.


Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward. Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.

Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.

Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.

Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.

Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.
Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss. Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.

Tip 1:  The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.
Tip 2:  Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.
Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.
Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply liberal amount on to your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment and rejuvenation of your tress.

NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. For more information, please contact hotlines 4136570 and 09228830575 from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm or visit www.novuhair.com

“In the Philippines, 1 in 3 children suffers from stunted growth due to hunger and malnutrition, and this means that they won’t be able to reach their full potential. Poor families struggle to feed their children and it’s estimated that 1.5 million Filipino children go to sleep hungry every night, not having eaten a thing all day,” says Dr. Amado Parawan, Save the Children’s Health and Nutrition Advisor.
 
Be a hero, wear a Santa sombrero!

About Save the Children

Save the Children Philippines is part of the global Save the Children movement working in over 120 countries. Present in the country for over three decades, Save the Children delivers programs for Filipino children which gives them a better education and easier access to healthcare, supports them during emergencies while also educating communities on disaster preparedness.

Save the Children has been advocating for policies and holistic programs and projects for mothers, children and their families. We do this by training frontline health and nutrition workers on live-saving care for newborns and their mothers, promoting exclusive breastfeeding, managing community and school-based health and nutrition programs and promoting reproductive health to adolescents. Our work also includes making families more food secure and resilient, for example to natural disaster, by working with governments and other partners to generate alternative incomes and grow nutritious food.

Lahat Dapat is Save the Children’s biggest campaign yet against hunger and malnutrition. Save the Children believes that all children have the right to fair and equal access to nutritious food. We know that the rate of stunting of 33% is largely due to inequality of access to nutritious food, long periods of hunger and a lack of nutrition during the first 1,000 days.

Moms Take a Stand for Proactive Prevention against Vaccine-Preventable Diseases

Friday, October 27, 2017
Moms are superheroes. They take care of you from the moment you were born until you can be independent. The first few years of life is the most crucial and keeping you free of sickness is on her checklist.

With the many roles moms have to play, keeping the family happy and healthy is always top priority. This becomes even more challenging when the rainy season ushers in even more diseases, but with the unpredictability of the weather nowadays, how can moms keep their families safe from illnesses all year round?




Mommy Mundo and the Philippine Foundation for Vaccination (PFV) has banded together to help address these concerns and educate mothers on proactive family prevention through "Mom Protect."


Recent health news on mosquito-borne diseases like Dengue and Japanese encephalitis, as well as highly-communicable ones like flu sound scary if they aren’t very familiar with ways to prevent them. But with the right knowledge and partners with the same goal, moms can rise shoulder to shoulder in protecting families against these vaccine-preventable illnesses.





“Mom Protect” highlights the importance of awareness of and access to new and better health prevention methods as family health and wellbeing is any mom's top priority.




"We've seen the effect misinformation can have on mothers like in the recent Japanese encephalitis outbreak scare," said Dr. Cecilia Montalban, President of the Philippine Foundation for Vaccination. "By leading moms to helpful, effective, and efficient solutions against vaccine-preventable diseases, we'll be empowering them to live worry-free through proactive protection and prevention."



A proactive approach against unpredictable foes


The government has consistently emphasized the importance of vector control to stay vigilant and be prepared against diseases, especially those that are mosquito-borne this rainy season. Though the practice has helped communities prevent outbreaks, Dr. Montalban urges moms to take a more proactive approach when it comes to family.





"Prevention is always better than cure, especially if cure is not always available," Dr. Montalban said. “Advances in medical science have given us highly effective ways to avoid the pain and costs of diseases through vaccination."


Proactive prevention constitutes a three-pronged strategy: Awareness, Diligent practice, and Sharing.


First, moms are encouraged to become actively aware and alert by reaching out to their doctors to know more about prevention methods they can do or apply at home. This is also to ensure that they are thoroughly updated on new medical developments that might be of help in the future.



After, diligent practice of learnings received—even when children are past toddler-age—is recommended as consistency is key in building and fortifying family health and resiliency.


Finally, passing accurate information forward to other mothers is important. Dr. Montalban encourages moms to join communities online to connect with people who share the same experience and those who have successfully combatted these illnesses.


Standing together


Through the Mom Protect discussion, Mommy Mundo and the PFV aspire to give Filipino families peace of mind amid public health concerns by thorough preparation together.





"We are hopeful that with our unified and strengthened resolve as mothers to quell worries with this forum, our families can live healthy and confidently no matter what the season."


"With the information and resources already available to us moms, we know casualties of any of these diseases will lessen and lessen until there are none at all," Dr. Montalban added.


Top Reasons Filipinos Are Less Happy In The Workplace According to Jobstreet's Job Happiness Index Report

Thursday, October 26, 2017
Filipinos are less happy in the workplace – JobStreet.com Correspondents said salary increase, getting a new job will make them happier in 6 months
image

MANILA, October 25, 2017 – The Philippines’ job satisfaction level dropped from 5.25 in 2016 to its current rating of 4.97 on a 10-point scale. According to JobStreet.com’s 2017 Job Happiness Index, the key factors associated with unhappiness at work are lack of career development and training opportunities, as well as the management style of a company’s leadership team.   

JobStreet.com surveyed 9,326 Philippine respondents from July 31 to August 31, 2017. The respondents were from different position levels (predominantly junior executives and supervisors) and represented a diverse mix of specializations. Fiftysix percent of respondents came from the National Capital Region, 12% from Southern Tagalog, 7% from overseas, 6% from Central Luzon, and 5% from Cebu City/Province.    
“More and more Filipinos are looking for career development. They want to move forward in their chosen fields, but the lack of career development and training opportunities in their current companies seem to hold them back,” jobStreet.com Country Manager Philip Gioca said.    

When respondents were asked what will make them happier in the next six months, 33% said a salary increase would help, but 23% wish to resign and get a new job.   

Colleagues and work location make Filipinos happy at work  
The respondents who said they were happy cited colleagues, work location, and company reputation as the top three drivers of workplace satisfaction. This is largely true across all demographics.   

Baby Boomers are the happiest   
According to the study, in terms of generations, baby boomers, or those born before 1960, are the happiest at 5.63, followed by the those belonging to Generation Z at 5.10.   
The same can be said in terms of position level, where the top executives or the more established segment of the workforce, which are expectedly populated by the baby boomers, as well as the Fresh Graduates, have the highest happiness score.   
Generation Xers barely managed to score above neutral at 5, while millennials, who compose the majority of workplaces, are below neutral with an average of 4.9.    
“The results of this study serve as a wake-up call for companies who wonder why there is such a high turnover rate. Career development, training opportunities, and the management style of the company’s leadership team are just some of the reasons why many Filipinos are unhappy in the workplace. It would be best if managers can get to the heart of why this is happening as each company’s DNA is unique,” Gioca added.   
The 2017 Job Happiness Index was conducted in Southeast Asia, with a sample size of 35,513. Job satisfaction is highest in Indonesia (5.27), followed by Vietnam (5.19), the Philippines (4.97), Malaysia (4.65), Thailand (4.55), Hong Kong (4.45), and Singapore (4.31).

Elisse on keeping pretty and fresh

Elisse Joson is constantly smiling nowadays. This is despite the fact that she has roles in both The Good Son and Panday, along with the MMFF entry film version of the latter. She’s also gearing up to launch her new album soon. Here, she talks about all that she’s juggling and how she keeps everything balanced.

On her acting career:
“For The Good Son, I play the character, Sabina, who is an only child. She’s from a well-off family, but not your typical rich girl. For Ang Panday, my character’s name is Wena. She’s the complete opposite of Sabina. Hindi mayaman, kabilang ng isang malaking pamilya.”

On how she prepares for these roles:
“I had to get my background story straight for each of the characters. Kailangan alam ko kung ano ang pinanggalingan nila. I read the script and memorize my lines before I even go on set para ready.”

On her first Metro Manila Film Fest movie:
“I feel very honored to be part of a big film like Ang Panday. And to be part of the MMFF, it is something surreal. I know I’m very blessed.”

On her singing career:
“I’ve always enjoyed singing ever since I was little. But when I was much younger, I was also very shy. Now I’m so happy because I get to do something I love and even record an album. I can’t really talk about it right now since we’re still in the middle of production. But I took a lot of inspiration from mine and Mccoy’s [de Leon] journey as partners. The song ‘If We Fall in Love’ is in the album, and it’s my favorite one so far.”
Elisse on keeping pretty and fresh_photo

On what she does when she has time off:
“I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I’m an only child so I really like reaching out to the people I’m close to so we could spend time. But I also like to just relax at home by myself and watch series online, and sometimes play dress up and take photos!”

On advice she would give her younger self:
“Be brave. Stop listening to your fears and doubts. Just step out and do it. Also, don’t fall [in love] too fast!”

On challenges that still excite her:
“I know I’m so blessed to do what I’m doing now. I would like to just keep being given opportunities to share my gifts and eventually really reach out to those who are less fortunate. I really believe in giving back.”

On how she keeps pretty and fresh despite her busy schedule:
“I know it might seem like a small thing, but scents are really important to me. So I’m very happy that Fiona Cologne is with me all the time. I love how I can go for something sweet like Fiona Cologne Rosy Red, and switch it up the next day with something fresh, like I just came out of the shower with Fiona Cologne Pretty Mist. I’m also in love with Raspberry Drops! It smells so yummy. I really have a hard time choosing, to be honest,” Elisse laughingly shares.

A busy schedule filled with shooting and recording days do not seem to faze Elisse. Fiona Cologne, with its charming and attractive scents, brings out the fun and beautiful in everyone and will naturally make its wearer shine in the spotlight. Girls can now be effortlessly confident just like Elisse.
