How Often Should You Cleanse Your Face


I always believe that the face is the most sensitive part of the skin. It differs from one persons' skin to another. Skin differentiation also comes with gender, age, lifestyle, and most especially skin type. Skin type can be defined as oily, dry, sensitive and also can be a combination of any of the types mentioned. 

As you age your skin will be going through its course, one can always result to getting prevention by using products to lessen skin aging or medically consulting a dermatologist where they can help you with procedures to prevent skin aging. 

Thirty years ago my biggest concern was pimples which were always associated with puberty. I saw this ad in the television about Eskinol facial cleanser, this I guess was the only local brand of facial cleanser that was being promoted that time, compared to now, hundreds of different products and brands are being introduced in the market for consumers to buy. I remember buying my first ever bottle of Eskinol the smallest one and got the money to buy that from my allowance, around P12 ($0.25) or even lesser. Today, since I have a budget for it, I always buy the biggest bottle, which I can use for months and more economical. 

What I love about Eskinol it refreshes my face after removing my make-up, it deep cleanses the skin especially in the eye area and the side of the nose which often creates skin problems like blackheads and whiteheads. Using cotton balls or cotton pads I can see dirt from make-up. The only downside of using this as make-up remover in the eyes it stings, so I always avoid and always careful when rubbing the eyes with the cotton soaked cleanser. 

Up until now, Eskinol has been my go-to facial cleanser, it is always included in my skin care regimen most especially now that I am wearing make-up almost every day. During the weekends and I don't have work I always cleanse my face 2-4 times excluding the bath time. One in the morning, after waking up with facial wash and water and cleansing the face with a cotton ball with Eskinol concentrating in the T-zone, are, and followed by a pea size of moisturizer and I am set for the morning. When I get busy with house chores I dab my face with splashes of water in the bathroom sink and bath time in the afternoon, and sometimes in between the mid-afternoon to early evening. It became my skin regimen to include Eskinol cleanser because that is the only way I feel that my skin is refreshed and cleansed. It never leaves dryness to my face. This is why I love Eskinol.

What are the Health Benefits of Coconut Water?


Coconut is considered the tree of life because of the bountiful benefits and unlimited source it can give us; from its seeds, leaves, bark, and down to the roots. 

Living in a tropical country gives you an advantage when it comes to tropical fruits such as coconut. It can serve and give a bountiful source as food, cosmetics, and can even provide materials for home infrastructure. Coconut water became popular when it comes to health topics, due to social media hype and online testimonials. 

Coconut water is a clear liquid from the inside of a young green coconut. The amount of coconut water you can get inside a coconut depends on the size of the coconut, as well as the coconut meat, it varies on the age of the coconut.

What are the health benefits of coconut water?

  • High potassium- coconut water has more potassium than bananas; eliminate muscle cramps during exercise; it also can lower blood pressure.
  • Source of electrolytes- it is known as a natural energy and sports drink of the athletes as it can provide that electrolytes needed when in competition. Compared to energy drink available in the market that contains sugar or artificial sweetener, and even sometimes coloring. The best source for hydration.
  • Calcium and Magnesium- for bone stability and muscle repair during a hard workout or strenuous activity.
  • Antioxidants- it helps to eliminate free radicals due to extreme activities and also it balances food intake. 


Recently, we added natural coconut water and coconut to our meal mostly during dinner. A green coconut in the flea market cost around P25-P30 ($0.50-$0.60) a piece, you can get an almost liter of coconut water and 250grams of coconut meat. Have it chilled and viola we always enjoy pure and natural coconut water every time. Because of the abundance and availability of coconut in the Philippines, it is considered a staple commodity. 

Last Christmas I was surprised to discover this brand that sells coconut water in a box, called Merci Buco (Thank you, Coconut) by Locally. 







This was included in the Christmas basket we got as a gift, and I got curious about the claim of having 100% coconut water, pure organic, and, all natural. One liter of Merci Buco by Locally which cost P95.75 around ($2.75), upon checking the price online. I am excited to compare the taste of this Locally versus the natural-straight from the coconut water. 

1. Price wise, this brand is way more expensive, almost triple the price when buying the natural coconut water, plus buying coconut water comes along with a lump of coconut meat. 

2. In terms of color and taste, obviously, the color of this brand is more opaque and cloudy with a touch of thick consistency that the natural coconut water which is more clear and thin in consistency. In regards to the taste, oh my gosh! I was like drinking an unexplainable drink. It has sweetness with a touch of vanilla and the smell of coconut water. I was trying to convince my self with this brand and giving it credit that it can deliver that coconut water we used to have.
I wasn't able to finish one glass with ice since I cannot bear the taste of it. I would rather exert an effort to go to the market and get the natural one. Convenience wise, you can give it a go. 

I hope there's a technology where you can pack products naturally for consumption with fewer additives, leaving the best and natural taste. 

Have you tried this brand yet, what were your experience and thoughts about it?

Giving Your Food and Restaurant the Right Exposure through Food Photography

https://www.bitsenpieces.com/2016/11/enjoying-goodness-of-emborg-dairy.html


Have you ever heard of the saying, “We eat with our eyes?” This is very true right now especially since there are a lot of photographs that are being shared through social media. There are some people who spend a long time scrolling on the different food that they can eat. Once they see a few that they like, that is the only time when they would research about the restaurant and the other food on the menu.

The fact that people have smartphones now make it easy for them to take amazing photos of their food. They take pictures of food that are cleverly presented and they share it with their friends. When their friends see the photos, and they hear that the food is good, they would also try out the restaurant.

How can you use food photography for your email marketing? It is simple - you just need to add the images of your food to the emails that you send to your subscribers. Sooner or later, they will feel the need to actually visit your restaurant and try the food that looked so good in photos and hopefully in real life too. When people eat, they use 4 out of their 5 senses. This explains why eating a good plate of food can be gastronomical for some people.

Here are some tips on how you can take amazing photographs that you can include in your email:

  • Allow the food to be the main point of the shot. You may think that you want the food to be seen amidst the interior of the restaurant that you are also trying to show off. It’s either one or the other. If you want the food to be the “star,” then take a picture of it without competing with the restaurant’s interior. You can take a separate photograph of the restaurant’s interior if needed.
  • You can send pictures of the ingredients that you use in a more artistic manner. There are some people who associate ingredients with health. The more artistic the shots are, the better it would be.
  • Show off the presentation of your food. Some people visit restaurants not only because of the taste of the food but because of how the food looks like. Make the appearance of the food great so that people will visit.

Allow your food products and your restaurant get more exposure with the use of food photography.

Green ways to design and decorate your kitchen


After decades of neglect, the atmosphere is starting to get the focus it deserves, and with the best reason. As an outcome, some homeowners are choosing to implement green designs into their kitchen, mainly since the kitchen can use a lot of power through appliances that continually run and water that regularly drips.
Here are several tips for each category in your kitchen so that you can pick a green decorating scheme based on your budget and needs.
Water saving and green appliances technology
Energy friendly appliances are getting a lot of focus, and with today's price ranges and options, upgrading your older appliances for more power efficient options is viable. Energy friendly appliances use anywhere from 10 to 50 percent less power.
Do not ignore your kitchen faucet as a potential source of water-conservation. Especially if your budget does not contain new appliances, consider picking a kitchen faucet with an aerator. You will have the same water force with less volume. A recirculation pump with keeping your warm water in your tap, meaning no running the water for up to minute waiting for warm water.
Green underfoot
If you are considering improving your kitchen flooring, go for laminate flooring or perform some research into green options such as bamboo, linoleum, cork flooring or reclaimed hardwood. Bamboo is famous because it is simply renewable and has been improved to be more strong as well as to stand up better to moisture. Cork is environment-friendly and you will love many choices for color, just ensure you love the look and texture before committing.
Because linoleum is made from rosin, linseed oil, and wood flour, it is environment-friendly and durable. If you are set on tile, consider buying recycle title that was well preserved perhaps a terra cotta for a rustic, hot look.
Big-ticket items going green
Counterparts and cabinets are seminal parts that affect the look of your kitchen. If you are considering the chance of refacing your present cabinets, one famous choice is picking a hardwood that would not be finished with urea-formaldehyde, which emits bad gasses. You can also pick green materials such as wheatboard that is finished with nontoxic products.

Recycled quartz countertops are the greenest option, and are engineered by IceStone, Zodiag, Silestone, Caesarstone, and DuPont. These recycled quartz countertops are mold, antimicrobial and heat resistant. They provide a big range of color choices with best color depth and a hint of sparkle that will flourish in any kitchen.
