Hey Sugar Waxing Salon: Now Open in SM Marikina

The east part of the metro is still kind of untouched with metro living as there are really a few of them with high rise buildings. We can still see mountains from this part of the city and roaming around the neighborhood, the streets looks like you’re still living in the 1980s. When the weather is hot, it is really hot because the wide spaces absorbs everything. This is an ideal place to soak up and basked in the sun.

When you have the option to slip into your shorts and enjoy the good weather to shop or maybe head on to one of the resorts situated in the city and flaunt yourself, you would want to have skin that’s smooth. The goal of maintaining a smooth  skin no matter what season can certainly be sorted out by an appointment to your nearest waxing salon. But for Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, it’s as much about giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well.

Hey Sugar makes all-natural and 100 % Sugar grooming options accessible to clients of all shapes and sizes. They use 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax—a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

Hey Sugar!’s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of.

For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destination that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods.

“We strive to bring reliable and fast services, but also connect with our customers—it’s a very personal grooming procedure, after all, and we are dedicated to making customers happy and comfortable. Clients expect quality service, superior treatments and affordable prices but not at the expense of a warm and comfortable environment—and that’s exactly what we have waiting for them here,” explains Arvin A. Amaro, Hey Sugar’s Marketing Head.

Sports Barbers SM Mall of Asia: A Stylish Destination for the Male Grooming Generation

There is a so-called group of men who society called the metrosexuals. They are those men who took good care of their appearances, from dress to grooming. They are always on the lookout for the latest trend from the latest fashion to the latest hairstyle. They don’t care what other men think of them but grooming themselves is now part of their lifestyles. 


In a sense, they would admittedly make more effort by way of aesthetics, the process of getting the right look still prompts them to demand the simplicity and straightforwardness of traditional barbershops. 

“Most women like being whisked away to a secluded world of pampering for their beauty treatments. The same can’t be said for men—most guys expect an efficient and clear-cut service—but not at the expense of style,” explains Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Sports Barbers Barbershop. 

Thus a new breed of barbershops sprouted like mushrooms in the city. Nowadays there is but one of them that that delivers the kind of service that they expect; one that essentially gives a modern take on an old classic. And this one is is more accessible and successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generation seeks and it is Sports Barbers. 

With 13 branches all over the country, Sports Barbers recreates the traditional concept of your go-to neighbourhood barbershop and offers a destination that is modern and stylish yet stays true to what men have been used to. 

Its ambience and service, strongly anchored on its team’s ability to provide everything from on-trend cuts to classic styles, is a compelling reminder of inherent masculine values—adventure, straightforwardness, humour and at the end of the day, natural good looks (as opposed to self-conscious preening).

The entire concept of Sports Barbers is to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crop of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step into any branch and emerge looking as dapper and effortlessly good as they can be. 

“The idea is to create a go-to destination for men where they can expect the reliable, time-honoured techniques of traditional barbering and yet know they are in the hand of people who will be able to tell the difference between a short sides with brush top versus buzz crop or a pompadour versus a slick back,” ends Amaro. 

Sports Barbers Barbershop has locations in UP Town Center, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Clark, SM Southmall, SM Bacoor, SM Bicutan, SM Cebu, SM Bacolod and its newest brand SM Mall of Asia.

Minoxidil Regroe supports Alopecia Awareness Month

Minoxidil Regroe joined the world in celebrating the annual Alopecia Awareness Month with its Blue Party. It aimed at heightening awareness as well as helping understand what alopecia is all about and how to cope with this condition.

This noteworthy event happened last September 21, 2017 at Dillinger’s 1903 Steak & Brew Greenbelt 3 in Makati City, gathered bloggers and media friends to help disseminate further information about alopecia. The Blue Party event was Minoxidil Regroe’s way of supporting people who suffer from this condition.  In addition, blue is the color of Alopecia Awareness which is celebrated every September. Guests present on the said affair voluntarily cut their hair as a symbolic gesture of showing support to people with alopecia.

During the event, an alopecia advocate and survivor shared her journey about her experience in having this autoimmune condition and how she surpassed her condition despite the stigma attached to it. “Alopecia should not be ignored as it affects not only one’s outer appearance but also one’s inner being. People do not understand that it is not as simple as shedding of hair to one’s scalp or body but an autoimmune condition that resulted to hair loss,” said Au De Leon.

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease, causing the body’s immune system to attack the hair follicles, resulting in partial or complete hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body. The most common types of alopecia areata are alopecia areata patchy or coin-like patches on the scalp or other areas of the body, alopecia totalis or total hair loss on the scalp, and alopecia universalis or complete loss of hair on the scalp, face and body.

In the website of National Alopecia Areata Foundation, (, the foundation presented that 147 million people worldwide are affected by alopecia areata with a lifetime risk of 2.1 percent.  

Dr. Vinson B. Pineda, a renowned Filipino dermatologist, who brought Minoxidil Regroe in the Philippines was present in the said event. He shed light about alopecia and how Minoxidil Regroe can help people with alopecia in managing their condition.  According to Dr. Pineda, Minoxidil Regroe is the first treatment for hair loss and other cases of alopecia that has done wonders for both men and women in addressing their hair loss concerns. “Minoxidil Regroe is scientifically proven safe and effective to grow hair,” explained Dr. Pineda. “Consistent use of Minoxidil Regroe allows hair to grow back longer, regaining their lost confidence and self-esteem,” added Dr. Pineda.

As part of Minoxidil Regroe’s efforts to educate the public about hair loss, the brand has continuously provided and conducted free hair and scalp consultation to its consumers with the support of its trade partners nationwide. This is Minoxidil Regroe’s way of raising awareness about the importance of attaining healthy hair and preventing cases of progressive hair loss that diminish one’s confidence and self-esteem.

Press Release: Saint Teresa of Calcutta Awards recognizes missionary for 47 years of saintly work

The Saint Teresa of Calcutta Awards (STCA), one of the most celebrated award giving bodies in the country, has culminated this year’s search for the most impactful humanitarian with the awarding of Fr. Peter Geremia. The awards ceremony, which centered on theme “30 years of Saintly Selflessness,” was held in conjunction to STCA’s 30th anniversary at the RCBC Plaza Yuchengco Tower in Makati. It was attended by representatives from non-government organizations, philanthropists, public servants, as well as members and officers of JCI Manila and the AY Foundation.

Formerly known as the Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Awards, the STCA recognizes individuals who have devoted at least 25 years of their lives to serve underprivileged and underserved Filipinos. Aside from their work, awardees are also judged based on their character and adherence to Saint Teresa’s principles of integrity and simplicity in lifestyle.

This year’s STCA awardee is Fr. Peter Geremia, a 78-year old Italian missionary from the Pontifical Institute for Foreign missions or Pontificium Institutum pro Missionibus Exteris (PIME) who has been instrumental in promoting the rights and living conditions of both marginalized and indigenous people’s for 47 years. He relocated to the Philippines in 1972 and was initially assigned in Tondo.

Early in his service, Fr. Geremia already supported and fought for the needs of minority groups beginning with informal settlers who protested during the La Tondena strike. Fearless for his life, he also stood up against the Manero brothers and their group of North Cotabato who were known to commit atrocities against people connected to the New People’s Army.

Later on, Fr. Geremia and his group also spearheaded efforts to elevate the living conditions of indigenous tribes who were oftentimes deprived of their ancestral land.  His group ensured that these tribes were trained in agricultural production so they could sustain themselves, provided with food and land security, and had peace in their immediate communities.

His compassion and determination to help these minorities soon garnered him the Aurora Aragon Quezon Peace Award for Peace through Paritcipatory Development in 2001. Fr. Geremia has helped thousands of people through his efforts, particularly the Lumads. His invaluable contribution even earned him the nickname the “Living Saint of the Lumads.”

He is currently the president of the Fr. Fausto “Pops” Tentorio Foundation Inc. which enables people to have access to education, health services, agricultural production, environmental protection and the sustainable building of multicultural communities that espouse mutual respect, justice, peace and solidarity.

Through this recognition from STCA, Fr. Geremia will be able to expand his organization’s reach and help improve the lives of more underprivileged Filipinos.  He will receive a cash grant of one million Pesos (PHP1,000,000.00), at least half of which will be donated to his charitable institution of choice.

Through selfless individuals like Fr. Geremia, STCA hopes to inspire more people, particularly the youth, to be more involved and active in their communities.

“It is through selfless individuals like Fr. Peter Geremia that we at STCA believe we can truly impact change in the community.  By looking outside of ourselves and reaching out to others, we can truly uplift the spirits of those who are not only in need but of the entire country as well,” said Jerrold Ong, 2017 Chairman of the Saint Teresa of Calcutta Award.
