May 09, 2018 5 Comments

This is not a sponsored post. I didn't receive any for of compensation to make this review. All opinion and thoughts are 100% mine and honest.

It summer now and our weather is hot here in the Philippines. Since we usually experience a high temperature during summer, the sun shines too bright and hot during that time. And being out under the sun can potentially damage your skin layer so sun screen is advise to wear.

Luckily, I be able to try and give my thought about one of the leading Beauty Clinic that offers a lot of products that will take care your skin.

Its a good product especially it is gentle even for the kids. I use mine when we went to the beach last Sunday (May 6). It is a clear spray but have weird chemical smell. It gives shiny effect after you apply it to skin.

It's the same with the ultra gentle sheer spray but it is less shiny when I apply it to my skin. It has the same scent that I really don't like. Packaging is great and classy. When you use it during your beach or pool getaway, every time you get out of the pool or so, re-apply it to make it more effective.


BELO SUN EXPERT BODY SPF 60 PA+++ (100ml)

CLAIM & DESCRIPTION:

  • Non-sticky, anti-aging, hypoallergenic and paraben-free.

I already use its travel pack and I'm not a fun of this product because it easily dry up when you apply to your skin. So whenever I apply it, I should rub it immediately to my skin so it will cover my entire arm without re-applying. But I love the smell of it and its consistency. it is indeed light weight and non-sticky to my skin. I apply it like a regular lotion.


BELO SUN EXPERT AFTER SUN GEL (100ml)

CLAIM & DESCRIPTION:
  • nourishing formula infused with almond oil and skin vitamins that relieves sun-stressed skin from UV radiation damage
  • restores natural skin moisture

  • paraben-free
  • hypoallergenic
USAGE:
Apply and massage a generous amount on face or body immediately after sun exposure. Re-apply as needed.

This is the last product and this one is my favorite! It smells good even it has a slight scent of herbal ointment like smell or something, its consistency is light weight and it is effective. I use it after our getaway and when some of my skin starts to flake and dry up. I instantly apply it and I think the "suppose-to-be-sunburn" didn't happen. My skin was indeed refresh and even I get darker due to sun exposure, I manage to free myself in getting a sunburn.

I enjoy my getaway last Sunday and even I stayed long enough under the sun, I'm happy to tell you that I was indeed protected. It even extend its help during the aftermath. The downside of the Belo Sun Expert collection is its chemical-like smell that I didn't appreciate the most. Other than that, I like its effectiveness to me. 

Anyways, don't mind my dark hand during the review. I try to get the photo as it is without lighting effect or so. So yes, I'm morena and I can get darker too. lol

How about you guys? Did you go to the beach or did family getaway this summer? How did you get protected under the sun? Share your story with me by comment down below.

May 07, 2018 4 Comments

It's summer time and the weather will be "HOT". At this time, foods that we usually cooked at home or served at the resto can easily get spoiled, especially if its not handle properly. These foods are not safe and can cause foodborne illness.

Whether you have a restaurant that you operates or at home and you manage everything especially in preparing foods, keeping your food safe is a top priority. Food Safety simply means that the Foods  served are free from Hazards. 

To give a good tips, here is the Five things you can follow and remember to ensure your family, employees or your business gives or serves a safe foods.

1. TIME AND TEMPERATURE CONTROL

There are conditions that help the bacteria grow faster. Some conditions can be modifiable or be controlled easily so we can avoid spoilage or food contamination.
  • Food
  • Acidity
  • Time
  • Temperature
  • Oxygen
  • Moisture
There are 6 conditions or the FATTOM but we will just focus on TIME AND TEMPERATURE since it can easily be controlled.

To keep our food safe, in every process from, buying the raw foods until serving the foods, we have to follow the correct time and temperature of the food like the correct duration and temperature in cooking meat, poultry, fish or vegetables. if we able to correct the critical point during the process we can eliminate the bacteria growth in the food and we can assure that the food is safe.

2. FREE FROM HAZARDS

We have different hazards that can easily be found before, during or after we handle our foods. Just like the conditions, these hazards can easily be controlled.

  • Physical Hazards
  • Biological Hazards
  • Chemical Hazards
Physical and Chemical Hazards are very unavoidable and can be resolved easily so we will focus on that.

In keeping the food safe, Physical Hazards like hair, rice stones or so, can be avoided by wearing proper attire during cooking and a thorough cleaning before cooking. Chemical Hazards can be controlled by separating the Food Items to your Chemical or Cleaning materials so you can avoid mixing it especially the seasonings items. You can also put labels to know what's in the container or in the package.

3. PERSONAL HYGIENE

Since we already discuss the hazards, one way of keeping your food safe, is by being well-groom and properly hygienic to yourself. Using proper attire is a must. Even you are at home, you have to be well-groom, like cut your nails sort, wash your hands with soap for 20 minutes at least and tie your hair will cooking.

4. GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

5S in Practicing Good Housekeeping
  • SORT - take out necessary items and dispose
  • SYSTEMIZED/SET - arrange necessary items in good order for use
  • SHINE OR SWEEP - clean your workplace completely. "CLAYGO"
  • SANITIZED/STANDARDIZED - maintain high standard of housekeeping
  • SELF-DISCIPLINE/SUSTAIN - do thing simultaneously without being told or ordered.
To summarized the Good Housekeeping, you have to clean everything properly and do it regularly - just like doing things habitually. Cross Contamination happened when everything is not organized. For example, You have to use separate kitchen utensils from raw to cooked foods as well as meat to vegetables cutters or utensils. You have to Clean your area or workplace before leaving or clean your area or utensils every time you use it. proper segregation of waste disposal also apply here.

5. PEST CONTROL SYSTEM

Also part of good housekeeping is a place that are free from pest. Pests also contribute to food hazards and contamination of food so we better kill them. So to keep our food safe as well as to keep our home safe from whatever danger it may cause, we have to plan for pest control and consult a  certified pest control operator. For big restaurants and establishment they usually hire some company that do the job but for our home, we can also refer to some ready to buy items at supermarket that can help us to kill the pest, but make sure it will be place properly, away from food.

There's a lot more to say or share about food safety. This is just part of a big thing. But know something at less a portion of it can be in great help to everyone.
