Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing are doing well. I am still catching up from my from my break from my blogs. Today, I want to talk to you about the  L’Oréal Revitalift Voxbox that I have received from Influenster. I received the item free from my honest review last year.

I used L’Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer for two weeks and I have seen a big difference. It made my skin smooth and soft. I am specially loving this moisturizer this winter season. For some reason my skin is extra dry and nothing seem to help. However, this Deep-Active moisturizer got rid of the dry patches from my face within days.

My dear readers, I actually loved the L’Oréal Deep-Active moisturizer because after trying essential oils and everything this winter, this is the only one save my skin so far. I continued to follow from my previous post but my skin was still dry.

Flu Why Thy Make Me So Miserable!


mc-flu-20170221

Hi there my loveliness! Unlike me, hope you are doing well and did not fall into the trap the miserable flu. According to Center’s for Disease Control (CDC), this year’s flu is worse than any since any since the 2009 swine flu epidemic and is getting worse. Most people with the flu this season are infected with the H3N2 virus, one of the most severe — and deadly — strains of the seasonal flu. If you catch, you are miserable. Some of the common flu symptoms are:

  • Muscle or joint aches
  • Pain and tiredness around your eyes
  • A warm flashed skin,  watery eyes
  • A runny nose or a sore throat
  • Weakness
  • A headache
  • A dry cough

Get immediate medical help if you have any of the following:

  • Trouble breathing or shortness of breath
  • Pain or pressure in your chest or belly
  • Sudden dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Severe vomiting

For children, if they start to get better and suddenly turn for the worse get immediate medical help since that can be a sign of bacterial infection.

This year the flu vaccine is only about 30% effective. However, to me, 30% is better than nothing. Additional, it can lessen the severity of the virus. Also, remember the flu shot does only protect you from the flu shot, it protects immuno-compromised people around you from you.

My lovely friends, I am no way a physician. Hence, take a physician’s advice. However, please follow some good hygiene to keep yourself safe: always wash your hands, eat a lot of vitamin C to boost your immune system.

Have you or your loved ones been attacked by the monster flu recently? How have you dealt with it? I would love to hear from you.

My Battle with Androgenic Alopecia


Hi there my loveliness! It is so good to come back after sung a long break from blogging. Today, I wanted to share my reason for the break. I was diagnosed with androgenic alopecia. It’s a pattern of hair loss that affects both men and women. In women, the hair becomes thin all over the place, and the hairline does not recede. This condition in women rarely leads to total baldness. Never did I thought that I will have androgenic alopecia.

hair10a

Growing up in a society where women’s hair is part of my beauty, sudden loss of hair was a sudden psychological shock to me. I was depressed. I did not want to talk to anyone. I was hiding my head.  I remember taking the above picture reviewing a picture. Even then, I had a head full of hair.

However, suddenly in September last year, I started to lose my hair like crazy. I have my typical hair lose each day but this was drastic. I started photographing it. Within a month I lost two-thirds of my hair. I didn’t know what to do I went to my dermatologist who did a biopsy and diagnosed me with androgenic alopecia. She told me that there is no cure for this disease when using combination treatment, I will get some but not all of my hair back. Typical treatment for this condition include.

rogaine

Rogaine or Minoxidil was approved by US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of androgenic alopecia. The study is currently being marketed over the counter as 2% and 5% solution, with 5% being solution being more effective. Addition, oral treatment such as Finasteride, or Spironolactone are so prescribed along. Finasteride is prescribed only in men because it can produce ambiguous genitalia in a developing male fetus. Since Spironolactone is antiandrogen, it can cause feminization of male fetuses. Hence it should not be taken during pregnancy.

irestore

I was in emotional pain. I was put on Rogaine, antiandrogen, an antifungal shampoo, ketoconazole 2%, which has shown to effectively treat in regrowth hair.  My dear friends, at this point I was desperate to do anything. I was doing research on any treatment. My dermatologist saw how depressed I became. She told me that can lead to more hair loss. She told me I should also look into buying a laser helmet, which has shown to regrow hair by 43%. Based my doctor’s recommendations, I bought irestore. This FDA-cleared, low-level laser therapy is clinically proven way to stimulate hair follicles to grow thicker and fuller hair. It uses clinical-strength laser technology to treat balding, thinning hair and receding hairline. I use it for 25 minutes for every other day.

I am taking hair vitamin with 5000mg every day. I have been following these treatments regimens for the past four months. I have seen some improvements for sure. However, I still have a long way to go. I still have bald spots that make my heart skins but I am starting to deal with it. I never thought I will have to deal with this before the mid 30s.

My lovely readers! I have gone a rough patch I am still trying to recover from. I try to tell myself at least I am healthy, but it’s really hard to deal the loss of so much of your hair. Have any of experienced what I have through known someone. I would love to hear your story and what treatment has worked for you or your friend.
