With the cold weather, it is so much fun to layer clothes. Are there styles and outfits that you’ve always wanted to wear, but could not because it was too hot? You can now rock that pullover and boots. However, there is something we wear that will always be in no matter what season; our skin. This is why you need to take extra care to make sure you’ll maintain a radiant, healthy, and glowing skin all year round!

Not everyone is blessed with the genetics of perfect skin. Different skin types come with different problems, but we can classify them into three common types.

Oily skin tends to have large pores, and blemishes such as pimples or blackheads. Oiliness can be caused by puberty, other hormonal imbalances, or stress. To take care of oily skin, avoid over-washing you face. Cleansing twice a day is advisable. Use a gentle cleanser to prevent irritating your skin as abrasive scrubs can open the pores and further expose them to more pollutants in the environment.

Normal skin has a good balance of moisture, small pores, and an even tone. This is the goal of most skin care regimens, and most people have this skin type. But in order to maintain it in good condition, you need to minimize its exposure to the sun and follow a proper skin care regimen.

Combination skin can have dry or normal areas along with oily parts such as the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). This skin type can produce overly dilated pores, blackheads, and a shiny surface. Resolve these issues by using a gentle cleanser, applying a toner to repair skin, protecting it from sun damage, exfoliating to remove built-up skin cells, spot-treating, and using products loaded with antioxidants which help keep your skin clear and healthy.

The key to having clear and healthy skin is to have a reliable skincare system. White Result White & Clear, the newest skincare treatment for normal to oily skin types, fights acne and excess oil production, corrects skin blemishes, inhibits melanin production, and keeps your skin fair and young looking! The White & Clear System includes the Facial Foam, Facial Toner, Moisturizer with Sunscreen, and Spot Corrector.

Dermatologically tested, safe, and proven to clear acne and blemishes, each product is specifically formulated with Acne Buster, a multi-complex agent with 10 active ingredients that effectively fight acne and excess oil production; Papaya and Pea extract, which are effective whitening ingredients that inhibit melanin production; and Niacimide, a multifunctional B3 complex vitamin that helps reduce skin pigmentation and age spots as well as reviving and hydrating skin, leaving it supple and young-looking.

Whether your skin type is oily, normal, or a combination of both, White Result White & Clear from Tupperware Brands will give you clear and blemish-free skin. Just remember to cleanse, tone, moisturize, and treat your body’s greatest feature, and we guarantee that you’ll look your best for your next glowing radiant moment!

Chef Boy Logro our Idol Sa Kusina man celebrates his 59th Birthday. A very humble man presents himself in a very cheerful manner to celebrate his day. The celebration took place in his culinary school located in Cavite, put up through his hard work and very good skills in handling his earnings. To commemorate this special day, a special cook-off challenge was one of the major activities. Students from Cavite State University were the contenders in creating their very own version of different desserts; it was all pressure to impress their judges headed by no other than Chef Boy himself. Prize at stake was a full scholarship grant from Chef Boy’s culinary school and some amazing products from sponsors for all the contenders.




Chef Boy was also serenaded by his family and close relatives and how cute his grandkids being so comfortable with their Lolo as they continue to play around him while the program continues. When all the party mood came to a more relaxed environment, we got to do some chitchat with Chef Boy. Hearing his story on how he survived the very challenging life they had back in the days made me respect him more. His humble beginnings how he managed to be brave and conquered the kitchen and until now continues to learn more and at the same time share more of his blessings not just with families but also his students. Of course growing old is part of his plans and he wanted to retire in his farm, yes he already has a farm in Davao and excitedly says how he loves the environment there and would want to grow old with his wife just relaxing and do some farming.

Chef Boy has a lot of stories to tell and an hour would not fit, but a few of what he shared made me inspired to go further and achieve more in life. Watch him do his kitchen moves on Idol Sa Kusina every Sunday 7:15 pm at GMA News TV Channel 11.

OPPO is now known as one of the major players in the market when it comes to mobile phones that are affordable yet functional, and recently they launched another model that will once again excite the consumers.

MANILA - After the successful local launch of the OPPO R1x, Neo 5, and Joy Plus, OPPO Philippines aims to continue transforming the mobile landscape with the debut of its latest bang-for-the-money phone, the OPPO Joy 3. Flaunting an upscale design that strikes an ideal balance between style and function and running OPPO's Android-based ColorOS 2.0 operating system on a quad-core processor, the Joy 3 promises a quality smartphone experience for all pockets.

Looks Great, Feels Great in the Hand

Not to be outdone in the design department, the OPPO Joy 3 features a solid metallic frame that runs around the edges of the device and a smooth rear cover in two color options – white exudes elegance, while a matte-gray finish brings a fashionable edge. Perhaps more importantly, the size of the phone lends well to one-handed operation and allows users to easily reach the corners of the screen with either hand. OPPO has built a good reputation for its attention to design details, and the Joy 3 is further proof of this.

Powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, the OPPO Joy 3 is perfectly suited for multitasking and running games. This also ensures smooth performance in day-to-day usage, without the lag associated with most entry-level devices. The Joy 3 offers the sort of smartphone experience you'd expect from a more expensive phone.




A Camera That's a Joy to Use

The OPPO Joy 3 boasts a 5-megapixel rear camera with OPPO's Pure Image 2.0+ technology, resulting in a camera system that's both intuitive and fun. The Color OS camera app itself has been optimized for the best possible image quality regardless of lighting conditions. And then there's the variety of filter effects and shooting modes available on the Joy 3, including Beautify (softens your features to help you look your best), Double Exposure (overlaps two photos to create a unique visual effect), and GIF (converts multiple shots taken in quick succession into an animated image format).

ColorOS 2.0: Live Bright

The OPPO Joy 3 runs OPPO's proprietary ColorOS 2.0 on top of Android – the operating system of choice among most smartphone and tablet makers. ColorOS combines speed, efficiency, and stability and brings pixels to life, populating your home screen with contemporary icons that are instantly recognizable. It also supports screen-off and screen-on gestures, allowing you to wake the device by simply double-tapping the screen, play or pause music by sliding two fingers up or down, or jump directly to the camera app by drawing a circle, among other things.

The preloaded ColorOS Security Center, on the other hand, strengthens the phone's security features. Indeed, the ColorOS was designed with beauty and practicality in mind.

The OPPO Joy 3 retails for only P6,490. For more information, visit http://www.oppo.com/ph/products/joy3.

OPPO Joy 3 Key Specifications:
* Dual SIM (dual micro SIM, dual standby)
* 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 chipset
* 1GB RAM
* 4GB internal storage
* microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
* 4.5-inch IPS display (480 x 854 resolution)
* 5-megapixel rear camera with f/2.4 aperture and flash
* 2-megapixel front camera
* 2,000mAh battery
* ColorOS 2.0 (based on Android KitKat 4.4)
