In numerous ways, the past few months have been greatly challenging for us Filipinos. And while the novel coronavirus is still out there—lest a vaccine is discovered soon—we can’t continue being hopeless and restless always.
We can live the “new normal” by learning good habits in exchange for bad ones that plague us every day. This way, we feel more positive and less weighed down.
Here’s how we can turn things around and face each day anew:
30-minute workout vs. media binging
Going on a marathon of newly released movies and fresh seasons of your favorite TV shows is always tempting—especially after a load of work and chores. However, we tend to overdo this and in turn, neglect our own bodies, which is definitely bad for the long run.
In fact, The Lancet cites that physical inactivity, along with obesity, may soon overtake smoking as the leading preventable cause of death.
If you put yourself up to speed with the latest on Netflix, don’t forget to put on some speed on your physical fitness too. Search for online 30-minute home workouts like yoga or HIIT, or if you can, go on a 5-km run around your village as long as you wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Staying clean and fresh vs. sweat and bacteria
Now that you’ve worked up a sweat from fitness activity, don’t forget to have a good wash after. This is because sweat can breed bacteria, which results in body odor.
So go ahead and hit the showers to wash away all the sweat and bacteria. For the ladies who want to feel their freshest, they can also use pH Care as their gentle daily feminine wash, and GynePro as their ultra protection wash to combat odor, itch, and irritation during red days. Both feminine wash products are safe for the feminine area.
Proper skin care vs. breakouts
Skin concerns continue to be a major source of anxiety. This is more so now that we’re spending more time at home and seeing more of ourselves than usual. The first thing we notice of course is our faces, especially when we get breakouts.
There are a plethora of reasons why this happens, such as overproduction of sebum and even the extended wearing of face masks—resulting to what is now known as the phenomenon called “maskne.”
We can address breakouts by taking simple steps toward a good skin care routine. Changing pillowcases, for example, lets you make sure that your face doesn’t come into contact with dirt and bacteria overnight as you sleep.
Further boost your skin’s defenses against breakouts with Celeteque’s Acne Solutions range, which include a cleansing gel, pore minimizing serum, oil control toner, facial moisturizer gel, acne spot corrector, exfoliating cleansing stick, and acne-clearing concealer. Each product addresses specific concerns, and together, they offer maximum benefits.
For more persistent acne concerns, take Lactezin. The ingestive in capsule form contains Lactoferrin and Zinc, which are powerful ingredients that address and lessen the appearance of pimples in just two weeks.
Complete your anti-acne routine with Myra’s beauty vitamins-infused topicals like facial wash, moisturizer, and soap.
