5 Reasons Why You Should Go for Organic Beauty Products and Services

Most people tend to forget that the skin is the body’s biggest organ.

And just like any organ, the skin needs a certain amount of care for it to stay healthy and function properly. The thing is, people think that they are doing their skin good by applying certain products or having particular services done on regular basis. In some degree this can be true. However, fact of the matter is, most beauty products—including those used in some of the most regular beauty services you get—contain chemicals that do more harm to the skin (and the rest of the body) than good.

Common knowledge is that anything we apply on our skin eventually ends up in our bloodstream. And for this reason, more and more people are now opting for all-natural and organic beauty options.
On an average, four out of ten people readily seek out organic products. But if you’re part of the six still on the fence,

here are the top reasons why you should make the switch to organics:

1. Less health risks

As said before, most of the beauty products available in the market today contain a standard cocktail of chemicals, which do more harm your skin than good. This, combined with exposure to harmful pesticides and preservatives used on the food sold in supermarkets, can give rise to a number of diseases.

2. Lower exposure to allergens

The chemicals commonly used in beauty products, whether to strengthen its effects or extend shelf life, can cause skin irritation and trigger allergies, particularly for those with sensitive skin.
Organic products may seem less effective compared to their chemical counterparts, but are gentler on the skin and has no adverse effects.

3. Helps nourish your skin

Organic and all-natural beauty products are all plant-based. Meaning, the main ingredients used in these products come from directly from plants or parts of plants and come with nourishing power. In the same way that you are advised to eat your fruits and vegetables regularly to keep the rest of your body healthy, putting on all-natural products on the skin will definitely help supply it with much-needed vitamins and minerals to boost its health.

4. Better quality products

There’s a lot of effort and detail that goes into the production of an all-organic, product, if only because they want to encourage more people to see the benefits of going chemical-free.

5. (Almost) Painless Regimen

Waxing is arguably one of the most tedious and painful beauty regimens anyone has to go through, but through organic options—particularly sugar wax, which wraps thoroughly around the hair and allow for a cleaner pull, pain is greatly reduced.

This is where Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon comes in to save the day! Using only 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax— you get a gentler but more effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

The Country’s Nail Experts Arrives in Unimart Greenhills

I'm pretty sure my ladies can relate- nothing ruins a relaxing trip to the nail salon than having your perfectly painted nails chip or smear after that final coat was painstakingly painted on. So here are some tips from the pros at the newly opened Nailaholics Unimart at Greenhills!

how to extend the life of your mani/pedi:

  • Make sure your nails are moisturized before getting your manicure. Hydrated nail beds cause less nail breakage and chips. 
  • Always use a base coat before painting colour on. This protects your nails from staining and also acts as a great adhesive for the polish ensuring lasting colour. 
  • Apply thin coats of polish with every stroke. It dries quickly and doesn’t cause bubbles. 
  • Wait a couple of minutes between each coat to make sure the nail polish adheres properly to its base. 
  • A horizontal swipe across the tip of your nails after your final coat, along the edge, seals the colour in and protects your nails against chipping. 
  • If you’re rushing, dip your tips in ice cold water to harden the nail polish quicker. 
  • To extend the life (and shine) of your manicure, apply really thin coats of topcoat every other day. 
  • Be sure to wear gloves while doing the dishes—water expands the nail bed and causes nail polish to chip. 
  • Cuticle oil helps freshen up your manicure and moisturize your hand. 
  • Be careful when applying skin care products. Certain types can cause nail polish to dull and discolour like sunscreen and mosquito repellents.

Let’s Talk Lashes: Ooh La Lash Shares What You Need to Know Before Getting Lash Extensions

Always dreamed of waking up with beautiful, long, thick lashes? Have you already had countless debates with yourself whether it’s a great idea to finally get lash extensions?  [I know I do!] Whatever your thoughts and reasons are, Ooh La Lash, the country’s most trusted lash extensions salon, shares the essential things you need to know to help you decide and finally go for that beautiful lashes you’ve been dreaming of!

caring for lash extensions

Lash Extensions or some may call it ‘lash extenders’ are individual strands of synthetic lashes attached to your natural lashes one by one using special glue. They could be the best gift given to some of us who were not born lucky enough to have long, gorgeous, thick lashes. Since applying false lashes everyday can prove to be a painstaking daily beauty episode (not to mention the messy glue application), opting for a safer, more convenient and more natural looking choice is definitely the wiser move! Here are tips according to lash experts at Ooh La Lash!

Preparations needed before lash extensions:

  1. Make sure to cleanse your eyes and remove any eye makeup or product applied as it may interfere with the adhesives and may cause reaction.
  2. Make sure you don’t have the following conditions: Conjunctivitis, Cataracts, Glaucoma, Styes, Alopecia, Blepharitis or if your are undergoing chemotherapy.
  3. You cannot have eyelash extensions if you have had an eye operation/eye surgery within the last 6 months.
  4. If you have scarring to the eye area, eyelash extension service should be performed 6 months after the scarred area has been healed.
  5. Contact lenses cannot be worn before and directly after the eyelash extension service.
  6. If you wear glasses, don’t forget to bring these with you so the lash technician can make sure there is room for your lashes to grow.
  7. Lastly, don’t forget to inform the lash technician if you suffer with claustrophobia or have any neck problems. They are well-trained and capable of answering any concern you may have.

You’d be surprised to know that there are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to lash extensions. At Ooh La Lash, you have the freedom to choose your curl, length and thickness. Go for Light and Natural (30-50 lashes)  for natural-looking lashes that would go unnoticed,  Classic  (51-85 lashes)  that’s has the perfect length and curl to add oomph to your everyday look,  Diva (86-130 lashes) for voluminous lashes with ultimate curl and length that scream va va voom! and Vixen (Unlimited lashes) for long and beaut-full lashes to die for.

Do lash extensions hurt? 

Generally, it is not a painful process but it may be uncomfortable to some since they would have to close their eyes for almost an hour –But hey! As they say, “tiis ganda”. However, once you see the results – any feeling of discomfort goes away.  It would be best to consult the lash experts at Ooh La Lash to asses which kind of extensions are best for your lashes. Some might have thin lashes that may be too weak to carry a heavier extension.

If you still have any hesitations by now, it would be best to know that all products and materials used by Ooh La Lash are FDA-approved and are safe and globally-accepted and all lash technicians are certified by TESDA.

preparations before getting lash extensions

How to care for newly ‘vamped’ lashes:


  1. Avoid wetting your lashes.
  2. Avoid swimming or exposure to heat.
  3. Do not apply oil-based creams and lotions on or around your eyes.
  4. Do not apply eye or lash makeup.
  5. Avoid eyelash tinting, perming or chemical eyelash treatments.
  6. Avoid sleeping on side or stomach.


  1. Avoid excessive exposure to heat or steam when swimming, showering or exercising.
  2. Avoid rubbing your eyes and do not pick or pull your extensions as it might pull off your natural lashes.
  3. Avoid using oil based makeup remover as it can weaken the adhesives and might cause your lashes to fall off fast.
  4. If you choose to wear mascara, strictly buy the water-based type.
  5. Do not use eyelash curlers.

The only ‘danger’ in getting lash extensions is that you might become addicted! After giving it a shot, it’s possible to want them all the time. Usually they are supposed to last three to four weeks and from there you can get them filled in.  Ooh La Lash also offers Special Lash Services that’s perfect for any type of extension you may have.
