Just like the rest of our body, oral health is an essential part of our well being. It keeps your teeth whiter, your breath fresher, and your smile brighter. To add to that, a healthy mouth lowers the risk of heart diseases, stroke, diabetes, and kidney problems.
That’s why it’s equally important to know what goes into oral care products you use.
This month, enjoy a healthy new option of cleaning your teeth with the launch of Botanique Toothpaste range by Himalaya. While most commercial toothpastes are concocted with chemicals that can be deemed harmful to one’s health, Himalaya Botanique Toothpastes are made with 100% Organic Certified (USDA certified) ingredients and from 97% natural source.
Apart from being 100% safe, Botanique is also clinically proven to be effective. Currently it has two lines: The Complete Care line is proven to help maintain total oral hygiene and healthier gums by helping fight germs, getting rid of plaque, and reducing gingivitis and gum inflammation with its anti-plaque and anti-gingival properties. The Whitening Complete Care line is proven for its whitening/ restoration of natural dental colour of teeth (without any chemical bleach) while promoting dental hygiene by keeping teeth clean and healthy.

“Am I too young to start using these products?” This is the question that many women, including us, ask when it comes to anti-aging products. Raised with a notion that these products are solely for women who are in their 40s or 50s, products that help reverse signs of aging are often met with wonder or confusion.
But one is never too young to start taking care of their skin. Starting an anti-aging regimen at a young age is an important preventive method to slow down the process of aging as one gets older.
Just recently, Murad launches its freshest duo: the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum and Eye Cream. The duo is a nighttime complement to the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum that adds an extra layer of protection and prevention to your skin, no matter what your age is.
Like its daytime counterpart, the newest Murad Retinol duo is formulated with Retinol Tri-Active Technology, which improves the skin in three ways: hastened cellular turnover, lipid-encased retinol that gradually melts into the skin, and magnet-like effects to promote efficacy and absorption. The two also have Swertia Flower Extract that soothes skin and keeps irritation at bay.
Both packing a one-two punch of anti-aging properties, both formulations exhibit the power of retinol, reinvented: powerful yet gentle, effective without being overwhelming. Reminding us that it’s never too early to start our anti-aging routines, Murad keeps youth within reach at any and every age.
The Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum (15mL) retails for P4,850, while the Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream (50mL) is priced at P4,550. Both additions to the Murad Resurgence collection is available in all Rustan’s Department Stores.
With one bottle sold every thirty seconds (yes, it’s true!), it’s no secret the Clarins Double Serum is one skincare product you should trust your skin with. It’s a revolutionary product that addresses various anti-aging and skin care concerns of all women, regardless of age and skin type, by using only the most potent natural ingredients.
This year, Clarins reinvented this iconic Double Serum in its 8th generation edition by decoding the language of youthful skin. Here are the FIVE new things to be excited about with the new Clarins Double Serum:
- The reformulated Clarins Double Serum targets five vital sink functions (regeneration, oxygenation, nutrition, hydration, and protection) for a youthful and healthy complexion.
- Aside from the 20 botanical extracts featured from the original formula, the new Double Serum has three additions – Teasel extracts to minimize fine lines, Organic Leaf of Life Extracts to boots skin’s hydration, and Turmeric to increase skin’s vitality.
- The new Double Serum packaging has an adjustable dial for controlled dispensing! The larger droplet is customized for normal to dry skin while the smaller droplet is just right for normal to oily skin.
- According to the 4-week period Satisfaction Test on 350 women worldwide, 81% reported has visibly firmer skin, 90% visibly smoother skin, and 87% more radiant skin.
- Clarins Double Serum can replace your day or night cream. But it can also be used in combination with any moisturizer. It contains Cangzhu, which boosts your moisturizer to be 87% more effective.
Clarins is exclusively available at Rustan’s Department Stores in Ayala Center Makati, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Alabang Town Center, and Ayala Center Cebu
