Finding the Right Hair Care

Hair care is so much more than shampoo and conditioner. Hair care is just as serious and varied as skincare, with just as many ways to target and treat any problems you might have. Hair and skin products are related in another way: the hair products you use can have a major impact on the state of your skin.

People are starting to be more aware of the effects that silicones, dimethicone in particular can have on the skin. Dimethicone is the ingredient in conditioners that gives the hair a silky, slippery feeling. In skincare, it makes the product easy to smooth out and makes the product feel perfectly powdery. Dimethicone can make your skin look great, but sometimes it can lead to breakouts. It gives the skin a blurred, poreless look by forming a barrier over the skin. It makes sense that this type of ingredient would lead to skin congestion. When used daily on hair, dimethicone forms a smoothing film that is very difficult to wash away. Your hair may feel smoother but it has really just been sealed inside a waxy barrier. Your hair’s healthy appearance is purely cosmetic and not the result of improved health. read more

Hydrating Make-up Remover by Eau Thermale Avène

Eau Thermale Avène introduces hydrating make-up remover to Filipino women!

Cosmetic products exist to help women improve their facial features or cover imperfections. But while an average woman uses 12 different products everyday—which all in all contains about 170 ingredients according to a research by U.S. organization Skin Deep—their desire to look good might do more harm than good especially when proper skin regimen is not practiced.

This is the very reason why Eau Thermale Avène—the leading dermo-cosmetic brand in Europe—recently invited some of the country’s most prestigious beauty and wellness bloggers and members of the media at the Salon Beauvoir in Makati, City to educate them on how to properly care for their skin before, during and after applying make-up. read more
