Most people prefer artificial tanning since there is no significant health risk and the only damage a person may get from them is if their skins are too sensitive and the application may cause some allergy.

Among these innovations the one that is gaining the most popularity is the self-tanning spray. This easy-to-use product is sprayed evenly on the skin and then all you must do is wait for it to dry. Tanning products contain a chemical called dihydroxyacetone (DHA). These chemical acts an agent that triggers the amino acids in the skin to produce a great tan. Tanning products has been recognized by many as safe and effective and does not produce the significant risk that traditional and tanning beds have. Applying a tanning spray is easy, but there are some things that you need to know to achieve that perfect even tan. Here are five things that you should remember when you apply one.

Prepare your skin

Before you apply a tanning spray, make sure that your skin can handle the formulation. Read the instructions carefully and then apply a small amount of the spray in your body and wait for any allergic reactions or discoloration. In this way you can check the quality of the tanning spray and you reduce the risk of hurting your skin.

It is best that you remove all the dead skin cells in your body so that the spray will be more effective. The reason behind is that tanning sprays usually “stick” to the outer layer of your skin. So, if your dead skin cells are still in your body, they will be ones that gets tanned, and your tan will not last long. Aside from this, healthy skin cells are very receptive to the tanning sprays and would hold them longer. Scrub your whole body using a loofah or any other scrub and make sure that you exfoliate your whole body, especially the exposed parts.

Aside from scrubbing your body, be sure to apply a moisturizer a few hours before you apply your tanning spray. This softens your skin, and it becomes more receptive, therefore making your tan last longer and absorbing it better.

Application strategies

Wear dark clothing because the spray sometimes discolors them. Aside from this, make sure that you have a pair of gloves that you can use to avoid discoloration in your hands. Although some prefer to use their hands to evenly apply the spray. Just be sure that you wash your hands right away after application to avoid further discoloration.

When you start spraying your body be sure to apply the tanning spray evenly. Prepare a towel or tissue to wipe off drips and make sure that you apply the spray in covered areas like the back of your ears to achieve and even color.

Final reminders

Make sure that you have evenly applied the spray and make necessary adjustments if you find any discoloration. Stand still for about a minute to avoid dripping and uneven application. It is crucial that you do not move especially your joints since these areas can easily remove the application. Be sure to follow the instructions given in your kit and do not forget to apply a sunscreen when you go out. Most tanning sprays contain a sunscreen protection formula, but it is best to apply it separately to ensure safety.

These three steps will give you that perfect tan you have been dreaming about. Just be sure to follow these reminders and all you must do next is to find that perfect clothing that goes with your new tanned look.

Mother’s day Celebration

Hi Mommies,

I want to share how I celebrate my simple Mother’s day with my family during this enhanced community quarantine, even if it’s not pandemic, I have always had a simple mother’s day celebration with my love ones.

Last May 10, Sunday was Mother’s day. Honestly when I woke up that day, I am not feeling well due to my third month of pregnancy signs and symptoms. The whole morning I wasn’t on the mood to cook or eat or even stand up because of dizziness and vomiting. My Hubby and Kenj greeted me a Happy Mother’s day with a kiss and hug from them both, then I and my Mom greeted a happy mother’s day too with a hug and kiss from each other. After lunch, I was feeling better and decided to cook pasta called pancit canton bihon and banana loaf bread for mother’s day and at the same time it’s my Hubby’s birthday, the other foods on our table we have decided to order for delivery but we make sure that the food we order can be re-heated again just to make sure that our food is safe to eat from the pandemic since I am pregnant and craving for pizza and crispy fried chicken with gravy from the fast-food take out for a long time since lot’s of fast foods and restaurants has gone closed and some are not capable to deliver in our area. My Hubby went to SnR pizza to buy my cravings and at the same time he went to the grocery to re-stock our essentials. Perks of being pregnant, You can eat your cravings without questions, hahahaha! Thank you Hubby for satisfying my cravings, Very much appreciated.

We have a dinner celebration since all the foods I prepared and ordered just got in time before dinner. We have a hearty meal and the food has comforted us because this is what we have been wanting to eat for a long time, Like for my Hubby he requested me to cook pasta pancit canton bihon on his birthday, Kenj, my Mom and me requested for pizza and my dad has no request at all. I baked the banana loaf bread since we don’t like to order cakes from bakeshops since the cakes cannot be re-heated unlike pizza or other foods that can be put in ovens or heated using pans. We had a very nice chats and different stories to share on the table during mother’s day some topics are funny topics and most of the time are from the current events happening in our country and the pandemic. We ended our Mother’s day celebration with a full and satisfied tummy and went to our rooms since we had a very long chat on the dining table until we noticed its bedtime.

I also want to share my message and gratitude to my mom. here it goes.

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom. I love you po!

honey and milk image

The Legendary Queen of Egypt was known for her exquisite complexion. One of her secret beauty treatments, the milk and honey bath are still being used today.

One of the main ingredients, Milk, contains lactic acid, which helps to exfoliate your skin. The lactic acid in milk is an alpha hydroxy acid, which helps to cleanse the deepest layers of the skin.

Honey has an abundance of health properties. First of all, it is composed of sugars like glucose and fructose so it is also a gentle alpha hydroxy acid. It’s made up of both minerals and vitamins to help nourish and heal the skin. Since it also contains phytochemicals that kill viruses, bacteria, and fungus, it’s has a natural anti-inflammatory effect which heals wounds quickly. This makes honey a good substitute for wound dressings.

Here are a couple of ways to enjoy these 2 main ingredients found in her ancient beauty secrets.

Honey & Milk Bath


1/2 Cup Powdered Milk 1/2 Cup Raw Honey 2 teaspoon Jojoba Oil (optional)

Mix ingredients in a large bowl and pour your warm bath. Soak for up to 20 minutes to infuse these beneficial ingredients in your skin. This recipe makes enough for one bath.

Milk & Honey Rinse for Wrinkled Skin


1 oz raw honey 1 Cup skim milk 2 teaspoons aloe vera gel

Combine Ingredients in a jar and shake well. Apply to your face morning and evening with a cotton ball. Store mixture in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Hundreds of years ago, Cleopatra discovered that milk and honey can help keep the skin youthful, soft, and beautiful. Incorporating these 2 beauty recipes in your daily regime will help you to also experience healthy, vibrant, and ageless skin. Milk and Honey is readily available at your local grocer and is an inexpensive way to improve your skin.

The Power of Beauty as you Aged

Aged Beauty

There comes a time when we all need a little help to pull off the newest in seasonal looks. As we think back to the eternal beauty of Marilyn Monroe, Ava Garner, and the ravishing beauty of the young Elizabeth Taylor, we can see why we would love that look. As Summer blossoms from Spring, it’s time to take notes from all their looks that make these famous Hollywood beauties rock and turn it into your own unique fashionable hip style.

Those luscious lips
There a secret to spring’s bright lipsticks in lifesaver colors, bright reds, corals, pinks and fuchsias and more. You can put these colors on your lips as long as you do not wear them matte. These colors must have shine or this look isn’t going to be pulled off. Start looking into all of today’s beauty & fashion magazines and decide for yourself, “do those colors look better on me or her?” Who ever “her” maybe in the trendy magazine of today. Not every actress has a sense of taste or color, so remember that fact.

The confident look
Ever heard of faking confidence? This is all about faking it till it becomes who we are. Remember it is all about attitude! When you look good, you will feel confident.

Be stylish
Remember there is a fine line between looking polished, and confident style woman or a vulgar tart. Be careful. It’s how you pull off your own bold look without going over that fine line and then it’s “oh no” and wash it all off and try it again till you have it.

Cleansing-Back to basics
As with all make up one needs to start with a cleansed, well-moisturized face. The idea today is to become chic and updated. You have got to think glamorous, as in movie star style (think Ava Garner, Marilyn Monroe). You are going to work on bringing their classic looks up to today’s standards.

The natural look
Not all women want to work at the latest Gala with just a bare face and wearing lip-gloss. Not everyone wants to wear the l am all-natural look, some really do just love those trendy colors! This is not a look that requires you to wear foundation. By doing so you are taking this look back instead of bringing it forward into our time. That is why you need to stay away from those over plucked eyebrows as well.

The strong but seductive woman
Start thinking about going for a time when women wore strong lipstick and dark eyes. This is not the type of woman who you messed with! She wears Teal eye shadow on her eyelids and Coral Lipstick with shine on her lips. Her strength shines through the colors. This is a look we all have secretly desired but never truly knew how to pull it off. Now here are some ideas of how to really pull it off without taking away from who or what you are. It’s very important to all women to be able to show just how strong we are, by what we wear to what we do and how we are seen by others. Some of us want to be in the back behind the scenes while others want to be in the front leading the way. Who do you want to be today?

Tips for those bold lips:
Why not try that on your own lips Coral or maybe even Fuchsia? Here is a simple trick to keep your lipstick color on your lips for a very long time. You could use lip liner but once your lipstick has worn off what is left? Lined lips and that just looks so tacky. Try this instead, apply a cream-based stick foundation over your lips and let it set for about a minute. The idea of waiting is you don’t want your foundation blending with your lipstick. After waiting, go ahead and put on your favorite bright lipstick, the cream foundation will help keep your lipstick in place.

Are you worried about your lipstick feathering on you? Then line your lips with a wax pencil; there are a few great ones out there today.
This is one very powerful but simple look that anyone can try, starting with spring and going right into summer lipstick colors. Summer colors are anything but quiet these days!

Don’t forget those nails
To make this look your own you must wear your fingernails with simple nudes or French manicure. Remember the idea is not to over do it. If you still feel the need to wear bright red or pink, then do it on your toes, who is going to know? Mood nail polish is an even better choice of colors on your toes. Who knew that showing off your mood on your toes could be so much fun?

Besides with today’s fashion craze, wearing open toe shoes with a splash of color can really help pull off of the beauty of a pair of the most up to date stylish shoes.
All you are really doing is making sense of the power of true beauty, yours.

Take charge with style
Now for the woman who is going to be the CEO of her own company: It’s time to find power within yourself, starting today!
With your mind & body filled with confidence you can walk by the hall mirror and you say to yourself “Damn! I look good!” Then you have pulled this look together and made it yours. Start today by taking charge of who you are and what you are, the latest powerful woman is born!

My pregnancy experience in this time of the pandemic

The day I found out that I am pregnant was March 27, 2020. That day I planned to go to the market to restock on our essentials and volunteered in our household that I will be the only one going in and out of the house for errands during the enhanced community quarantine, since I got my quarantine pass and also everyone agreed that I will be the errand girl because I am a nurse and more skilled to prevent the spread of the virus from the transmission to family members.

That morning I wasn’t feeling well, I feel like vomiting, has cold sweat and a little bit dizzy but I suck it in since everyone is relying on me. I tie my hair up like in a bun styled way, wear my mask, eyeglasses, dry-fit long sleeves and leggings, went to the market. After I bought everything on the list, I went straight to the drugstore and buy 3 packs of the pregnancy test. When I got back home I put all the veggies and other food essentials to an assigned table (for newly bought essentials to disinfect first before bringing it inside the house) at the dirty kitchen outside then wash hands before touching the entrance door, Went to take a bath right away and put on the pregnancy test and the result was obviously positive. I announced it at home right away with my super thrilled tone and everyone was super happy especially my Son with a big smile on his face and he said to me: “I am going to be a Kuya yehey!”. The Dad was shocked he doesn’t know what to say, He has torn between thinking of the struggle ahead since it’s pandemic and at the same time glad because it’s our answered prayer for three long-awaited years for God to bless us a second baby. The Lola and Lolo were so thrilled because they are also praying for us to have a second baby. My mom is so supportive and has changed from Masungit to mabait aura to me when she learned that I am pregnant. The perks of pregnancy (hahaha!) my parents are more understanding and considerate to me.

So I rested the whole day since I felt sick and feeling the pregnancy signs and symptoms like nausea, vomiting, dizziness, cold sweat, and feeling exhausted even if the things you do are not really tiring. While resting I was thinking of the plans ahead for my family and other important stuff to do during and after pregnancy.

The next day, In the morning, Called the nearest hospitals to look for any available Obstetrician and luckily there are two available doctors to accommodate me in this time of the pandemic. I picked the earliest, nearest, and a convenient time for me to go for a doctor’s check-up.

Day of the check-up. I prepared myself the night before. When you are pregnant and in this time of pandemic the most important to keep in mind is to boost your immune system, how to boost your immune system by sleeping as much as possible eight hours, and take one tablet of Vitamin C 500mg before sleeping. Wake up early to prepare breakfast for my family then I take again one tablet of Vitamin C 500mg in the morning before going outside. Prepared myself for doctor checkup, the new normal habits of wearing clothes when you go out are the following: Tie up your hair, wear protective glasses so you won’t touch your eyes, face-mask so you won’t touch your nose and mouth, and prevention of droplets from entering, non-tight long sleeves or jacket, leggings and crocs or shoes. My reason for wearing these kind of clothes is when you get back home, jackets or long sleeves and leggings you can easily remove it and put in the laundry right away and always wear the same pair of shoes you used to go outside so you know that same shoes is already contaminated (always wash that same shoes with zonrox mix with water when you have time, if no time placed it some where safe where others would not use it). Always bring in your bag an alcohol spray when outside, use it before and after entering a door.

At the doctor’s clinic. My OB interviewed me about my medical history, activities for the past few months, and the usual doctor’s interview. Always give the right info and never lie to your doctors so they can give you the right treatment to your health needs and preferences.
So my OB gave me medications for pregnancy and told me I need to have complete bed rest for a week due to my sensitive pregnancy since I got a little hemorrhage inside but it’s not critical. After the check-up, I went straight to the drugstore nearest me and buy the medications for a month supply then went back home to rest.

At home. Before entering the house, I leave my bag and things in our dirty kitchen table then washed my hands properly first with soap and water for twenty seconds. Then after washing hands went straight inside the house to take a bath, leaving all my dirty clothes in the laundry for washing.

All of the above activities before and after leaving our home is the new normal for us. It’s very tedious but worth it once you have done all prevention and safety before interacting with other family members, I am not worried and feel guilty walking around the house touching things and preparing foods for my family since we did the proper way to control the transmission of the virus.

So what’s your experience going out and having errands during this pandemic? are you pregnant too? or an errand girl or boy in this time of pandemic? Share your experiences and ideas with me, here in the comment section or on my facebook page. (located at the right side of this blog page .)

Hope mga ka-mommies Naka Kuha kayo idea sa experience ko on this pregnancy article, especially sa mga preggy mommies like me. Giving all the moms my tightest and warmest hugs!!! Always keep safe and stay at home as much as possible mga ka-Mommies!!!

“Prayers is the best weapon we have to protect and guide our family in this Mommy journey”
