SvelTi’s Lavieen gives long-lasting BB cream effect on skin

When it comes to beauty, having clear, smooth, and silky skin is most important. To achieve this in an instant, we turn to cosmetic products like the BB cream, which has been popularized by Korean beauty icons and is one of the the secrets to their flawless skin.

Thanks to technology, we can now enjoy the benefits of BB cream for longer without having to wash off and reapply the product daily.

SvelTi Aesthetic Center recently launched its newest innovation called Lavieen, a state-of-the-art laser technology that elevates the standards of skin care to new heights. Also known as the B.B. Laser, Lavieen uses thulium laser to emit pulses of searing, soft light into your skin, penetrating deep into its epidermis and dermis layers.

This technique treats both layers of the skin with rigorous medical precision: the surface, which is regularly exposed to dirt and other risk factors; and the inner parts, which actually produce the collagen and other substances that are responsible for healing and rejuvenating your skin. By doing so, the treatment becomes more effective and gives longer lasting results.

The laser lights do not just remove the external effects of the pollutants (which is important, by the way) but also release the nutrients that are already in the skin to naturally combat toxins entering the body. After one treatment, the skin does not only glow–it also becomes healthier and more resistant to disease and the breakout of pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and other blemishes.

You can see the positive changes after just one session, so better keep your camera and Instagram account right beside you in your treatment room!

One session only takes 30-40 minutes. You can easily go back to the office, home, or your shopping spree, looking fresh-faced than the people around you. There are no side effects, and no surgery is needed. The treatment takes place in a very private comfortable room.

The nurse-in-charge will go through your medical history and give you personalized advice as to how Lavieen can be maximized to bring about your desired results. The procedure is very relaxing because you will spend it lying on a medical bed as it is being administered. You can even sleep while the nurse does her work!

As for the procedure itself, the nurse will first cleanse your before activating the Lavieen laser tech on it. Once the laser pulses are emitted into the blemishes you want removed, you will feel a trickle of heat that resembles a soothing electrical touch. The nurse can adjust the intensity of the laser, depending on your level of comfort. You will notice that no other equipment is needed aside from the laser machine. What you will also see immediately after the treatment is done is a glowing face that looks bright and attractive, sans make-up.

As with any beauty treatment, there are certain regimens you need to follow so you can enjoy better results:
– Use sun protection (SPF 50+) daily at all times. Continue applying it at least 6 months after the completion of the treatment.
– Do not use any make-up for 24 to 48 hours after the treatment.
– Avoid exposure to natural or artificial light and sources of direct heat up to 72 hours.
– Washing of treated areas is not allowed 24-48 hours after the treatment.

Celebrate diversity with One Earth Organics

One Earth Organics

Many beauty brands are getting into the organic or all-natural trend (as they should!), but for One Earth Organics, there’s more to simply selling organic beauty products. The Filipino company’s principle of enhancing natural beauty and maintaining it through harmless, chemical-free solutions is what gives the brand its purpose: to value beauty as something that is not skin-deep, but self-deep.

The mantra serves as the light One Earth Organics aims to shine in its new campaign, “Celebrating Diversity.” Launched officially this November, it features eight female personalities who champion various types of beauty. The movement encourages women to feel confident and valid, regardless of weight, age, color, gender orientation, and skin condition.

“Empowerment is everything,” says One Earth Organics founder Tyffanie Anne Short about the campaign. “The concept is synonymous with the brand,” she adds. From humble roots, the single mom of 18 years was able to grow her small business that began with an underarm whitening product into a full-fledged beauty brand that solves many common skin issues.

One of the faces of the campaign is Tessie Singson. At 65 years young, she is known as an ageless fashion icon/social media influencer who goes by the handle @lolaandrogynous. She is celebrated for her unabashedly stylish fashion sense that
reminds everyone that beauty knows no age.

Two professional models are part of the campaign as well. Anna Panathera, who believes that everyone should accept diversity—not just the empowered, but more importantly, the critics.

Another is Gelai Peñales, who used to be insecure about her weight, but has learned to accept that she “will never fit into the ‘perfect mold’ that society made.” “I am already who I am meant to be,” she said.

Happily married mom Nek Oronce joins the campaign as well to impart to all women to look at insecurity as a source of strength. Once ashamed of her stretch marks, Oronce now considers the scars as “tiger stripes” for being able to bear a
child.

Professional volleyball player Aby Maraño shares the same message, saying to celebrate our differences is to our highlight our individuality. “Be your own kind of beauty,” she said.

“How beautiful you are depends on how you see yourself,” added body positive advocate Gita Gumabao. “You don’t need assurance from other people because being secure in the love of God makes one beautiful. No one can tell you otherwise.”

To learn more about the Celebrating Diversity campaign, follow One Earth Organics at facebook.com/onearthorganicsbeauty or @oneearthorganicsbeauty on Instagram. Check out One Earth Organics products at select Watsons and The SM Store branches nationwide, and at beauty Bar stores and beautybar.com.ph.

G-Force’s Teacher Georcelle shows us how to M.O.V.E.

If you’re a fan of local TV and showbiz, you probably know who Teacher Georcelle is.

Not only is she a pioneer in the art of modern dance—having put up the country’s most sought after dance group, the G-Force—and literally the force behind some of our favorite artists’ dance moves, Georcelle Dapat-Sy (or Teacher G as she is fondly called by her students) is also quite the mover and shaker in the fashion and beauty industry.

In her latest move, Teacher Georcelle has partnered with BYS, the country’s fastest-growing makeup franchise, for a new lipstick line that embodies her energy, passion, and confidence.

M.O.V.E. is a range of eight rich matte shades, ranging from muted hues to bright and dark reds. Named after their philosophy in the face of challenges and opportunities, M.O.V.E lipsticks are formulated to endure all rigorous dance routines and apply as smoothly as a perfect pirouette. With creamy matte finishes, the rich selection of colors will definitely help makeup lovers move to their own beat.

My personal fave is #07 Pin Up, a soft old rose shade perfect for everyday wear.

Aside from giving gorgeous lip pigments, M.O.V.E lipsticks also double as an accessory, as they are housed in swanky brass, silver, and black bullet cases attached to a thick snake chain. This means you longer have to scramble through your purse for a retouch!

M.O.V.E. by Teacher Georcelle and BYS is exclusively available at Watsons and SM Beauty stores nationwide, and online at beautybeat.ph.
