Have a Happy Holidays with Svelt’i

The most wonderful time of the year is here!
       From last-minute shopping sprees to multiple commitments like Christmas parties, we really can’t deny that the holidays are just around the corner. But, despite all the infectious merriment that the holidays bring, we also can't deny the fact that all the stress of holiday season brings can absolutely damage your skin through the late-night partying, non-stop eating, and problem with traffic that all of us deal with everyday.
     So how do we deal with these skin SOS and still be as glowing and youthful during the holidays?

Always Keep Hydrated

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in booze and stay late at night especially with all the Christmas get-togethers you need to attend. But keep in mind that too much alcohol and less sleep can take a toll on the appearance of your skin. It's hard to say No,  atleast try to have a limit. 
“There's a two major skin care concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and never to take it for granted most especially during the holidays which can be really stressful,” emphasizes Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.
Drinking lots of water can help keep your skin hydrated but there are also other ways of doing so.


      No matter how late you come home from a night of drinking and partying, don't forget to rid your face first off all the make-up you wore and never end your day with nourishing your skin. Its a must to cleanse and wash away your make-up before sleeping. So consider it as the important part of skin care. To cap the skin care regimen, Dr.Salazar recommends a cleanser that can prevent the onset of pores, blemishes, and acne; it will also improve skin tone and heal any skin inflammation.
      After washing your face to get all the make-up gunk off, apply a proper facial serum that provides anti-aging effects accelerated by the climate, stress, and even genetics. “It makes you look youthful and energetic. Our stem cell ampoule also reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the skin tone, and softens the skin as well.” Says Dr.Salazar.

     The holiday season is definitely a time for gift-giving so why not treat yourself by giving your skin a much-deserved detox? And we all deserve it.  Aside from eating healthy and doing alot of exercise,  gift yourself with a cream that can help bring back the skin glow that was lost and damage during the holiday frenzy.
“Externally, you can apply every morning our massage cream that infuses the skin with collagen. Collagen rejuvenates the skin and makes it appear youthful. Our production of it reduces as we age, but products like the massage cream infuses regular doses of collagen that add that let the skin’s natural glow to shine.”
“Since Christmas is a time for giving, it is high-time that you give yourself the best gift you can have and that is the right skin care regimen. With all the stress you have to deal with during the holiday season, a trip to a skin clinic such as Svelt’i is a great reward for yourself. Do proper skin care daily and you will see the results,” enthuses Dr. Salazar. 
    “To ensure that you are on the right track, you can confirm the methods and outcome of your skin care regimen with clinical specialists who will advise you accordingly. A monthly visit can do wonders for the overall wellness and aesthetic appearance of your skin.”

Of course, one of the best skin regimens ever is to stay healthy and keep a positive outlook because it would definitely manifest on your skin. But since it’s the holiday season, why don’t you give yourself a Christmas treat and go all out on skin care? “If you want to reward yourself this Christmas, go for SkinRenew,” says Dr.Salazar.
 “It works on three levels that really rejuvenates and firms our skin. It exfoliates, infuses, and oxygenates it. Exfoliation removes the dead cells from the skin and replaces them with new fresh ones. Infusion gives the skin cells the nutrients they need to fight disease and the effects of aging. Oxygenation makes the skin vibrant and gives it that youthful glow.” 
Nothing would be more rewarding than having healthy and glowing skin to welcome 2018, right?
      The holiday season may take a toll on your skin but with these friendly holiday skin care tips, you can keep  your skin looking stress-free and beautiful and welcoming 2018 with a bang!

Music finds its way back to Marawi through Coke Studio

It moves,  it heals,  communicate and does all these incredible things.  And that's the power of music...

       Music will once again be heard in the streets of Marawi City and in the hearts of Maranaos as the government and members of the private sector work hand-in-hand to rebuild the city, its communities, and more important is their homes.

Rock band Franco brings back music to the hearts of the Maranaos during a solidarity caravan of Coca-Cola Philippines at the Saguiaran Gym, one of the largest evacuation centers around Marawi City.
        In support of various efforts, Coca-Cola Philippines, through Coke Studio, spearheaded a hydration drive in evacuation camps, including the Maria Cristina Evacuation Camp, Buruun Gym, Sta. Elena Evacuation Camp and Saguiaran Gym, where almost 5,000 Maranaos are sheltered.
        Each of the family received various Coca-Cola products, including three 6-liter bottles of Wilkins Distilled water, and Coca-Cola shirts, while young local musicians sang OPM hits for the crowd. Customer partner Shakey’s also provided snacks for the evacuees.
The evacuation center in Saguiaran, which has one of the biggest concentrations of Maranaos, hosted a mini-concert featuring a Coke Studio bands The Ransom Collective and Franco. They sang their own song, entertained and distributed hydration kits to the evacuees.

    “This is our way of showing support and solidarity with the Filipino people – to be able to contribute in the rebuilding process. Music is one of the things that threads through every person, regardless of age, religion, culture, and socio-economic bracket,” said Stephan Czypionka, Marketing Director of Coca-Cola Philippines.
       “We are committed to help the communities that we serve, especially in times like these that we have to come together to rebuild not just the physical structures, but most importantly, the lives of the people.”
Early this year Coca cola studio was launched and through months it successfully changed the OPM landscape with its creative collaborations with various artists. It become a platform for teens and young adults to come together, drawn by their common love for music.
     Impressively the Filipino youth got united to help rebuild Marawi, driven by their passion for music. The successful benefit concert at the Mall of Asia concert grounds, and a recyclables collection drive are just some of the fund-raising initiatives to build schoolhouses through the Little Red Schoolhouse program implemented by the Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines.
The construction of a school building is part of the commitment of Coca-Cola Philippines through the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation’s (PDRF) United4Marawi campaign.
         The Company also joined the PDRF in a three-day medical mission for the evacuees in Iligan City. Also there are volunteer health care professionals provided check-ups, surgical procedures, and psychiatric intervention to the evacuees.
Evacuees received hydration packages, which includes Wilkins Distilled, Coca-Cola, and Sparkle. A mini-concert and sing-along was also done at Saguiaran Gym. 
Daily hydration needs also provided by the company for the members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines stationed in Mindanao.
