Filipina Wellness Expert Spills Secret- World-Class Natural Remedy For Maintaining A Fabulous Crowning Glory

Hello po! Frens, I know we treasure our crowning glory and it would surely be harrowing to encounter hair fall or hair loss! It can be a cause for insecurity.

Now, hair loss is a concern for both men and women. It can have a devastating effect to anyone who experiences it.

According to Web MD, the average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair and loses up to 100 of them a day, which is normal. As people age, their rate of hair growth slows, and they can experience losing more than hundreds of strands which is quite alarming.

So what can you do to prevent it?

For beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, embracing wellness is the first step to help improve the hair’s condition and make people look younger.

“If you choose to have a wellness lifestyle, then expect wonderful changes such as radiant skin, energy, and a general sense of well-being,” she emphasizes. “In time, you will realize that you have successfully delayed the aging process.”

The beauty and wellness expert says that choosing wellness as a lifestyle includes eating nutritious food, exercising, getting a good sleep, drinking generous amounts of water, managing stress, getting enough sunshine, and above all, staying positive.

On top of a daily healthy regimen, a supplement is necessary to maintain a healthy hair and scalp. Many people opt to use chemical-based products. But for her, the use of natural products is a must and the best solution for hair loss.

“There are hair treatment products in the market today that claim to be effective but their ingredients could contain chemicals that may prove harmful with long-term use,” she enthuses.

“Choose natural. Say NO to harsh chemicals and let nature do the makeover,” she emphasizes.

Natural ingredients such as virgin coconut oil (VCO) and aloe vera are loaded with beneficial properties, which boost the health of the scalp and hair. These and much more natural herbs and essential oils can be found in NOVUHAIR, a topical scalp lotion with 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help prevent hair loss, which the beauty and wellness expert approves of.

“Even if I have been blessed with thick hair, I know that it has to be cared for,” she maintains. “I use NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion once daily in the evening before bedtime. Next morning, I apply it on my scalp again, then a shampoo after 30 minutes. Those who wish to further thicken the hair, it is a must to also use the shampoo and conditioner daily.” 

Eventually, she noticed impressive effects after using this breakthrough product: significant lessening of hair fall, abundant growth of tress, and the return of locks’ luster.

Apart from being effective, it’s a very safe solution, too. A local clinical study has proven that NOVUHAIR has no adverse side effects with continuous use.

Moreover, NOVUHAIR is not just for those who experience hair loss. Younger people, especially the millennials, can use it for maintenance or prevention if hair loss runs in the family.

Cory recommends NOVUHAIR to everyone, especially to those who want to maintain their hair the best way they can. For her, this globally-competitive natural product answers the needs of a discriminating, health-conscious public.

Born on August 11, the granddaughter of the late Philippine President Elpidio Quirino is an author, and television and radio host. She has been a strong advocate for natural health, beauty, and wellness for more than two decades.

“Twenty years ago, it was as simple a goal as weight loss. But when I saw the dramatic effect it had on my vitality and complexion, I knew that this was the good path to take. For those who wish the same things I wanted then, this would be just as easy to embrace,” Cory recalls.

She wrote a series of best-seller books entitled “Forever Young”, which feature beauty and health tips as well as her own workout programs. Likewise, she also made a fitness video called “Cory Quirino’s Celebrity Workout for Beginners”.

For her, living in the 21st century has its challenges. She says: “The best way to live long and be well is to live a natural life.”

Truly, for a natural woman like Cory, her crowning glory deserves nothing but a world-class natural remedy that is NOVUHAIR.

Ultra Omega for PCOS and Fertility + Giveaway!

Hello friends! Omega-3 is incredibly essential for humans' overall health throughout our entire lifespan - from pregnancy to senior years! With more than 30,000 published studies on EPA and DHA, it offers numerous health benefits.

neomega ultra omega

Yes, our bodies can produce on its own, for example- we can convert sunlight to Vitamin D3, or the antioxidant glutathione (GSH) can be found in virtually every cell of our body. But our bodies can not produce Omega 3 on its own, we need it from an outside source. Omega 3 can come from plant based sources or seafood based sources.

Omega 3 in Fertility & Pregnancy 

First up, for girls in their reproductive age, who have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or are TTC (Trying To Conceive), listen up.

In forums for PCOS/TTC the supplements that often pop up are - Vitamin E, Folic acid, Metformin, Vitex, Maca, Primrose, Gluta, Buah... But really, what women should be regularly taking as a matter of fact, is Omega-3.

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to help fertility by helping to regulate hormones in the body, increase cervical mucous, promote ovulation and overall improve the quality of the uterus by increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs.

Also, omega-3 fatty acids may help lessen chronic inflammation-related fertility problems.

Now for women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome),  Omega 3 fatty acids can improve a number of its symptoms, including weight management, testosterone, depression/mood disorders, heart disease, liver disease, inflammation, melatonin hormone, fertility, pregnancy, menstrual problems, skin issues, diabetes, cancer.

neomega ultra omega fish oil
The capsules are big yet very soft and easy to swallow. It does not have any weird strong after taste.

Other Benefits

Omega 3 is also great for:


  • Beauty- As Hollywood actress Alexandra Daddario shares in an interview, "I use a lot of organic green products. There's a company called The Body Deli that makes amazing products like creams and washes. And I try to take fish oil every day!"
  • Sports- Omega 3 will speed exercise recovery,  make you stronger, make DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) a thing of the past,  boost your reaction time, reduce your risk of overuse injuries, make your muscles work better, keep you light on your feet, make your workout feel easier, keep your bones from snapping, fight exercise-induced asthma.
  • Fitness- Omega-3s support muscle building by improving muscle fibre integrity and increasing insulin sensitivity.
  • Reduces risk of vision impairment and blindness.
  • Increased intake of EPA and DHA has been shown to prevent pre-term labor and delivery, lower the risk of preeclampsia, and may increase birth weight.
  • In pregnancy and nursing: EPA supports the heart, immune system, and inflammatory response. DHA supports the brain, eyes, and central nervous system. 
  • Omega-3 has a structural and functional role in the development of the eye and brain in the fetus and breastfed infants. Studies have shown that sufficient levels of Omega-3 in pregnant and nursing mothers helps develop the central nervous system and immune system of the baby.
  • For the baby: lowers the chances of getting asthma and reduces risk of allergic conditions.
  • The building blocks for brain cell membranes are the omega-3 fats EPA and DHA found in fatty fish.
  • Reduces behavior problems in children aged 8-16 years old.
  • Improve your cognitive function, mood disorders and may help to cope with work-related stress.
  • Improves heart and lung functions.
  • Fish oil significantly decreased joint tenderness and stiffness in rheumatoid arthritis patients and reduced or eliminated NSAID use. 
  • Improves cardiovascular health and reduces risk of stroke.
  • A diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent high blood pressure in healthy young adults.
  • Results indicate that EPA + DHA may be associated with reducing coronary heart disease risk.
  • And many more!!! It is a great support system for all the work our brain and cardiovascular system does!
neomega ultra omega review
A combination of high levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).


But not all Omega-3 supplements are created equal; there is the best one out there- Neomega Ultra Omega. Ultra Omega is a premium brand: it contains 60% Omega-3 and 40% fish oil, while other brands contain only 30% Omega-3 and 70% fish oil! What a difference!

All of Neomega's Omega 3 products underwent state-of-the-art purification process through molecular distillation to eliminate traces of heavy metals. They are made in Germany, under strict adherence to GMP and compliance with EU Pharmacopoeia.

  • Uses omega-3 concentrates obtained from a Norwegian marine oil company that ensures PURITY through molecular distillation using state of the art purification manufacturing facilities.
  • Uses Omega-3 concentrates that exceed European pharmacopeia (EP) and Global Organization of EPA and DHA Omega 3s (GOED) contaminant SAFETY standards

Combo of mandelic acid and azelaic glycine to clear pores and lessen oiliness.

Acne Clarifying facial wash - Ingredients include azelaoyl glycine, salicylic acid, chamomile. Anti bacterial and creates skin barrier to prevents breakouts.

Acne Clarifying facial wash

My review:
It has a mild refreshing scent. It produces rich bubbles and cleans well. Gentle and no sting. Yes I appear less oily with this.

Acne Clarifying solution- Ingredients include azelaoyl glycine, mandelic acid, chamomile. Lessens oiliness and breakouts, while hydrating the skin. Alcohol free.

Acne Clarifying solution


My review:
Feels really mild, almost like water. For me, it dried out the pimple in my nose within 2 days. While for my husband he had a purge effect and a pimple appeared on his cheek. (It was due to the acids clearing out the skin initially then afterwards it makes way for clearer complexion).


B. For Dry and Sensitive Skin: M-Line

With ceramides, natural oils, allantoin for superb hydration and skin barrier repair.
These can even be used for babies.

M Gentle cleanser- Ingredients include ceramides (fat molecules that hold skin layer together and constitutes the skin's top layer. Function is to retain skin moisture and fortify skin barrier), sunflower oil, allantoin (soothes irritation, stimulate growth of healthy tissue, for the management of eczema, dry/scaly/irritable skin, hot spots/patches).


Super mild cleanser for retaining moisture.

M Gentle cleanser

My review:
It is very mild though not a no tears formula. It has a subtle cream scent. Skin feels comfy after rinsing. Yes you can compare it with the popular brand!

Now I do facial shaving sometimes. And I find this works as a good lubricant. I slather this on my face and then shave off! No nicks - just soft, exfoliated skin!

M Emollient cream- Ingredients include ceramides, sweet almond oil, allantoin. Soothing and moisturizing.

 M Emollient cream

My review:
1 pump is enough  for my entire face. This white cream  is non sticky, light and left my skin supple. Perfect for ber months when my skin becomes really dry and suffer from patches.

Overall, these are good and effective products and I recommend Skin Correct for people with these skin types.

Althea x Get It Beauty Reveals The Innovation - Skin Detoxer Mask!

Hello Dearies, I think one of the very best news that I have received this year was becoming an Althea Angels Beauty Ambassador! Yep, I was invited to their exclusive circle and I will be forever honored because they have entrusted me and believed in my capacities. As the slogan says- "spread your wings!"

althea angels beauty ambassador
I've got a canvas bag, cutesy pouch, birthday books, mirror, and skin detoxer!

Those were the stuff not to mention reward points for shopping. Aren't they generous?

Now the highlight -

Korea's top TV program that introduces new trends and resourceful information, Get It Beauty,  has collaborated with Althea Korea to create a NEW beauty ritual!  The Althea x Get It Beauty product collaboration is called the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer and it comes in two variants:

ROSE: Refining
Contains premium May rose petals from Grasse, France.
A rose-infused facial mask to strip away dirt accumulated overnight to reveal a healthy glowing skin. Recommended for morning use.

GREEN TEA: Purifying
Contains premium green tea leaves from the plantation in pristine Jeju island, Korea.
Infused with purifying green tea extract, it helps to soothe and refresh tired skin after a long day outdoors. Suited for night ritual.

althea turns 3
Rose: to purify and improve blood circulation, ensuring the skin stays revitalized, supple and bright. Green tea: Jeju green tea powder relieves the stressed skin fast by controlling the sebum and purifying the dust on skin, its catechin protect the skin from UV damage.

How to use Althea Korea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer?
1. Strip off any makeup left and let your skin dry.
2. Apply a generous layer of the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer to your face and let it sit for 10 seconds.
3. Wet your palms and gently massage your face. The water from your palms will mix with the product and cause it to bubble up a little like a facial cleanser.
4. Rinse it off with water before completing the rest of your skincare routine.

The Skin Detoxer is 150 ml and made in Korea. It's like a mask x facial cleanser type hybrid. Its gentle bubbles as you wet it originated from nature (coconut extracts). My skin really feels so clean, purified and soft after using.

Not to mention, the smell is heavenly- romantic rose or refreshing green tea!  I have been most looking forward to the aromatherapy effect.
