Get to Know Park Shin Hye - Mamonde’s Brand Ambassador

Mamonde Malaysia has introduced its brand ambassador Park Shin Hye through a greeting video, last July during its official launch. In the video, Park greeted everyone and congratulated Mamonde Malaysia on the launch of its first counter at Aeon 1Utama. Looking perky and cute in the video, Park also announced that she will be visiting Malaysia this October.
Park Shin Hye - Mamonde’s Brand Ambassador

While we wait for her arrival here in Malaysia, let’s get to know her first!

Born on 18 February 1990, Park has turned 26 this year. Her first acting debut was in 2003, in a drama called Stairway to Heaven, which earned her the Best Young Actress Award by SBS Drama Awards. Park’s career rose when she starred in the K-drama ‘The Heirs’ alongside Lee Min Ho, where she played Cha Eun-Sang. ‘The Heirs’ was a huge success in China with one billion views on Youku.com (a popular video viewing site in China) while Park had more than 11 million followers Weibo, the highest number followers for a Korean female actress. She was awarded the ‘Popular Foreign Actress Award’ at the Chinese Anhui Drama Awards. Park’s popularity continues to soar with her role as Choi In-ha in the drama Pinocchio which earned her Forbes Korea’s Top 40 Most Popular Celebrities. In the drama ‘Doctors’ that is currently airing on SBS, Park plays the female lead which makes her more popular than before. SBS expects to reach a 20 per cent viewership rating nationwide in the coming weeks with this drama gaining popularity. 
Park has won more than 23 drama and TV awards which also include the Prime Minister’s Award at the 6th Korean Popular Culture & ‘; Arts Awards and the Most Popular Actress (Film) at the 51st Baeksang Arts Awards in 2015.

Park has been the face of Mamonde since 2014. She was selected because of her pure beauty and her multiple talents that fit the brand’s image and also the brand message, ‘Inspired by Flowers’. The very same year, Mamonde’s Creamy Tint Color Balm which was used by Park in the drama ‘Pinocchio’, saw a sales surge which earned the phenomena, the ‘Park Shin Hye Lipstick Effect.’ Similarly this year, Mamonde’s new Highlight Lip Tint #6 (Pin Spot) which happens to be Park’s favourite, which she also uses in the drama ‘Doctors’, was seen flying off the shelves.

Finding a Balance in Digital Parenting

While children deserve the freedom to enjoy digital activities, there is a need to balance time spent on these through a ‘digital detox’. Given the multiscreen era that we are currently living in, it is unsurprising that learning how to ‘unplug’ is a test for most people, including children of today’s generation. With smartphones, tablets, laptops and gaming consoles within easy reach, gone are the days that we can leave the house without a device or two.

At a recent panel session organised by ZooMoo, a television channel for preschool children featuring animals, this topic along with the challenge of raising a child in the digital era was discussed. Keeping away from technology might not be feasible in today’s circumstances, however there are some ways for parents and children alike to balance their time spent on screens. 

Redefining the concept of balance

Most parents have an impression that if their child is watching TV or playing games, they are not getting any educational value as it is thought the primary purpose of these activities is purely for fun. However, as technology plays a big role in our lives, it is not about the removal but the mindfulness of using it. Instead of setting parameters on the amount of time allowed, the smarter approach is to know what content their child consumes and how they react to it. 

“Parents need to be the gatekeepers for their child’s time and activities spent on screens. Similar to any other activity such as play time, kids do not know when to stop and are likely to be upset when they are told to. It is about understanding your child and what works for them,” Dr. Shen-Li Lee, parenting expert and author of Brainchild stated.

During the session, a question on the effects of exposure to technology on a child’s social development was raised. Although current research doesn’t provide conclusive answer to whether or not there is a direct negative or positive impact on children, the main consensus is that consuming digital media in moderation is key.

“Screen time is not necessarily a bad thing as it can be used as an educational tool or part of bonding time. My girls and I enjoy watching ZooMoo and learning about the animals together,” said Aishah Sinclair, celebrity mom of two, radio DJ and ZooMoo brand ambassador.

Role model for healthy digital habits

Throughout the early years of development, one of the methods children will learn is through imitation. Watching their parents practice a well-balanced screen time routine will have a positive impact on children. Some examples include picking up a book to read, spending time outdoors, or even the simple action of putting away devices at the dinner table.

Relating to her personal experience, Aishah said “sometimes hiding the iPad from my girls does not work as they catch me using my mobile phone to answer urgent work emails. As parents, we need to ensure that we set good examples for our children to understand and emulate.” 

Clarins Anti-ageing Treatment Essences

Do you afraid of ageing? According to a research, this is the major concern for Asian women as early as 25 years old. When we aged, we needed extra care to help pave the way for young and beautiful looking skin.

To achieve a youthful skin, Clarins, the anti-ageing expert, has launched three pioneering anti-ageing Treatment Essences in August 2016. It is the first step in any anti-ageing beauty routine, tailor-made for skin at different ages, they are designed to enhance the youthfulness of all Asian women.
Clarins Research has discovered that the skin has a physical barrier that protects against external aggressions. In order for the powerful anti-ageing ingredients to effectively penetrate and reach its biological target which is located at the deepest skin layers, it is necessary to “unlock” this barrier. This is to allow the active ingredients to be able to absorb easily.
There are three types of skin ageing:

1. Age 25+ - Early signs of ageing: The outermost skin layer is made up of 15 to 20 layers of corneocyte cells, this compact structure forms a “physical” protective barrier limiting the penetration of cosmetic ingredients.

2. Age 35+ - More permanent signs of ageing: Water content in the upper skin layers decreases with age, lack of water is the second factor that limits the absorption of active molecules in addition to the physical barrier.

3. Age 45+ - Prominent signs of ageing: The accumulation of dead cells on the skin surface limiting the absorption of active ingredients.
As women are all unique, Clarins has formulated three specific Treatment Essences rich in plant extracts, with highly sensorial smooth textures that specially designed to “unlock” the skin barrier and optimize active skin absorption for skin at all ages and to ‘lock’ the skin with moisturisers.

The 1st tailor-made essences for different age groups and as an essential first step in any anti-ageing beauty routine, Multi-Active boosts skin vitality for 25+, Extra-Firming enhances skin bounciness for 35+ and Super Restorative reinforces skin smoothness for 45+.

Simple Lifestyle Changes for Better Blood Health

Aneamia is a common desease especially for women. Always we seen people especially ladies suffer from aneamia, due to we have to go through monthly menstrual or pregnancy. 

In fact, Aneamia is often the result of insufficient supply of healthy red blood cells or haemoglobin needed to carry oxygen throughout the body Causes of anaemia:
Abnormal menstrual bleeding, deficiencies of essential vitamins and minerals for production of red blood cells, chronic illness such as inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases, kidney failure and acute and chronic infections, and increased breakdown of red blood cells due to intensive physical training. The most common cause of anaemia is iron deficiency.
Anemia is a condition in which the amount of haemoglobin or number of red blood cells is insufficient to meet the body’s physiological needs. It is often the result of nutritional deficiency, genetics and chronic diseases. And women face a higher risk of anaemia due toiron loss during menstruation and pregnancy.

Besides, there are also Iron supplement which is a solution to correct iron deficiency anaemia, for better daily performance without hassle. My family and I have been consuming Sangobion, which is a product of Merck - the world’s oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company for innovative, top-quality high-tech products in healthcare, life science and performance materials.

Sangobion is an iron supplement that replenishes iron stores and increases red blood cell levels in the body.

It also contains Sorbitol which helps to reduce incidence of constipation commonly caused by iron supplementation It also fights the symptoms of anaemia such as fatigue, paleness, weakness, lack of concentration and dizziness.

New! NESCAFE Gold Barista Machine

I heard that in fact, there are more than 100 cafes open every year! It has shifts’ consumers from traditional to modern coffees. However, it is indeed an expensive expense to go café every day. Imagine paying RM 15 for a cup of coffee every day, 1 year it will cost RM 5475 at least! And that’s only for one person.
I had planned to buy a coffee machine but the ones in the market are quite expensive, plus the capsules are also expensive and not easy to get. Hence, when Involve Asia invited me to their NESCAFE event recently, I was excited to find out more on the latest invention from NESCAFE.
