One Way To Prevent Allergies This Summer

It’s summer, and you are supposed to be having fun, strumming with your fab shubb capo, but are you up to your neck in allergies?

It must be that skin care line you bought!

Skin care

Don’t blow your money on an entire skincare line.  Check your reaction to the product first.

Remember that the hypoallergenic label only states that the product has minimal chances of inducing an allergy.  It is not a guarantee.

Ask for samples of the product or buy the smallest bottle, then apply it on your jawline and wait 48 hours for any reaction.  If you know you have sensitive skin, try only one new product at a time, so you can easily pinpoint the cause of the breakout.MommyUnwired

Baby-soft Skin for Summer

In a hurry to get smooth, baby-soft skin?  It takes about a month of your skin cells to turn over and reveal soft, new skin.  This natural process slows down as you age, so you need to help expedite the process by exfoliating regularly.

Once a week, before you shower and after fixing all those rca cables you used in your karaoke session, spritz oil all over your body.

Next, take a natural-bristle body brush and in short, light strokes, work your way from feet to your neck.

Finish off with your choice of body moisturizer.MommyUnwired

Why All-Natural Belo Baby is Best For Your Baby

We have this family curse.

We have the most sensitive skin. 

I am serious.

Dust would touch my skin and my kids’ skin, and rashes will magically appear.

Sunlight shining on our skin? If it is too hot (like the sun over there at Manila…Thank goodness we live in Baguio), blisters would magically appear.

Ate something prohibited? Those annoying rashes appear, too.

(And I will tell you sometime about that time I have been rushed to the hospital just for eating fishball.)

That is why I am very vigilant of what product touches our skin. If it has something which I cannot pronounce or have difficulty spelling out (like tetrasodium edta, magnesium sulfate, sodium tallowate, phtalates, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate,formaldehyde (!) , and tetrasoidum etidronate. I know right. Creepy!), I toss them out.

The baby product needs to be:

…which I found in this cute bucket of  all-natural Belo Baby products…

Wait a minute.  It is from Belo. Is it a whitening line?
