How far would you go to achieve a fair and radiant skin? It appears thousands of Filipinos are willing to take potential health risks on banned beauty products simply because they offer celebrity-like glowing skin and are cheap at that. Take, for instance, skin-whitening and beauty product Goree, which remains popular among Filipino consumers despite findings that it contains high levels of mercury, thanks or no thanks to its affordable price of P150 and hyped efficacy on social media. Notwithstanding warnings from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) against the use of Goree, Ruvilma Entero, who is working overseas, and her friends continued to patronize the product.

The right way to care for your skin, at every age

  As we get older, our skin changes and becomes more vulnerable to damage. What I was doing in my 20s is different from the skincare routine I have now. It just gets a bit confusing as to which concerns to prioritize, what treatments are necessary and what to avoid, because the beauty aisles are always filled with new products. In your 20s, it's all about prevention---for instance, avoiding sun damage. Putting sunscreen should be the most important part of your daily routine. The effect of the sun's rays builds up every year and can also take years to reverse. So start early. My go-to sunscreens for the face are from Biore, as they aren't sticky and have a high SPF 5...Keep on reading: The right way to care for your skin, at every age.....»»

First round of US tariffs on Chinese goods to hit $50B – USTR

WASHINGTON, United States -- The first round of President Donald Trump's25 percent punitive tariffs on China will hit $50 billionin goods starting August 23, the government announced Tuesday. Washington already imposed tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese products on July 6. But it held off on a final $16 billion as a result of concerns raised by US companies. Although the move was expected, it cements the view that there appears to be no effort underway to defuse the dispute between the world's two largest economies. China has already retaliated with duties of its own, and has pledged to match the US dollar for dollar with new tariffs. The dispute has continued to escalate ...Keep on reading: First round of US tariffs on Chinese goods to hit $50B – USTR.....»»

Japanese company uses armpit advertising to one-up competition

A company in Japan decided that the best way to get consumers to see ads would be to put them in women's armpits. Called the Wakino Ad Company, it specializes in utilizing the untested armpits of women as advertising scaffold to promote its clients' products, according to a statement as reported by SoraNews24. The word "waki" also happens to mean "armpit" in Japanese. It also sounds like the word "wacky," which is exactly what some may consider this marketing approach. Despite the unorthodox marketing strategy, Wakino managed to land its first customer. Coincidentally, its first ad came from the beauty treatment and dermatology chain Seishin Biyo Clinic.
