50,000 breakfasts for Malaysian commuters

There are many reasons a healthy breakfast should be a daily routine for you and your family. But if it is not, help is on the way! October is Dutch Lady Breakfast Month and the No. 1* milk brand will partner Kellogg’s to give away 50,000 sets of breakfast for free from 21 to 31 October at various LRT stations in Klang Valley!
Dutch Lady Milk Industries Berhad (DLMI) advocates Malaysians to boost their daily nutrient needs by pairing their breakfast with a glass of milk. “Breakfast is the first nourishment our body gets after 8 to 12 hours of fasting from the last meal. It fuels our body and brain by providing the nutrients we need for the day ahead. This is why a nutritious breakfast is important to give us a strong start to the day,” said Ms. Ramjeet Kaur Virik, Marketing Director, Consumer Dairy, DLMI.

The benefits of eating breakfast are proven. Children and adolescents who habitually consume breakfast are more likely to have better micro and macronutrient intake, less likely to be overweight or obese, and more likely to have higher physical activity levels. 1

Studies also showed that breakfast skippers were 1.34 times more likely to be overweight2 than breakfast eaters who are likely to have a better total dietary intake, including key nutrients such as sodium, fibre, and folate which helps in maintaining a healthy weight.3 Breakfast also fills you up and helps to avoid overeating or snacking later in the day.
Despite the benefits of eating breakfast, we would tend to skip it most of the time. Mornings are usually the busiest time of the day for most families and working adults. For urbanites, waking up early to beat the jam is crucial to getting to school and work on time. According to My Breakfast Study, 1 in 4 Malaysian children, aged 6 to 17 years old, skipped breakfast at least 3 days per week. 2

[Review] Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum

Few years back, I noticed some changed in my mother's skin. As she age, the unpopular age spots start appearing. The dark spots getting obvious day by day. Hence, when I got to know about Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum, a product that is clinically proven to reduce dark spots, age spots & hyperpigmentation in just 1 week without using hydroquinone, I decided to gift it to my mum.
Why we need to avoid hydroquinone, you may ask. Well, it could bring common side effects including mild skin irritation and sensitization (burning, stinging), dermatitis, dryness, redness or inflammatory reaction.
This clinically proven serum uses a proprietary NHP-3 technology, which is supported by more than 10 years of research—as an alternative to hydroquinone to even out the skin tone and reduce dark spots. Vitamin C, oligopeptides and subtle light-reflecting pearls also work to give the skin an overall brightened appearance for a more youthful complexion over time. The serum also contain Niacinamide: Supports natural cell turnover to visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots while targeting key signs of aging; Hexylresorcinol: Minimizes damage that can lead to future discoloration and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and Plankton Extract: Encapsulated blend of green and brown microalgae, visibly dissolves dark spots to revitalize skin’s natural tone and even complexion. Hence, Murad Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum is safe to use on all skin type.
To use, just massage the serum evenly over face, neck and chest after cleansing, day and night. Use a Murad sunscreen during the day. At night, follow with your favorite Murad Step 3 moisturizer.

Embracing Your Hormones with Grace - [ comfort zone ] Sublime Skin Hormon-aging™

Consider this - when was the last time you thought of your Hormones? You will find that hormones permeate a women’s life from health to fertility, and in every aspect of energy levels, metabolism, moods, menstruation, and menopause. They also have conveniently become a justification for emotions from love to hate, and mood swings and weight problems.

Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through bloodstreams to send signals that trigger biological responses, controlling how organs and cells function. The intricate hormonal balance can affect our physical appearance, mental health and emotional well-being. When the hormonal balance is upset, it translates swiftly on the skin. Understanding hormones and their effects on the skin, from the teenage years to perimenopause and menopause, is a challenge for many skin care specialists.

[ comfort zone ] Sublime Skin Hormon-aging™ Oil Serum & Oil Cream Product Display

The Scientific Committee behind the [ comfort zone ] Sublime Skin range led by Dr. Davide Bollati; - Dr. Mariuccia Bucci, Nutridermatologist; Dr. Massimo Gualerzi, Cardiologist; and Dr. Claudia Aguirre, Neuroscientist and Skincare Expert have compounded their deep knowledge to develop the Sublime Skin line targeting Hormon-aging™. The line is specifically created for premenopausal and menopausal women (when menstruation eases). A delicate stage for women when hormones can take on a life of their own, could start as early as late 30s or as late as 40s.
Ms. Helena Holden, International Manager of [ comfort zone ]

The Sublime Skin Hormon-aging™ line features two skincare products – the Oil Cream and the Oil Serum. The Cell-Support Technology™ is formulated for the products to counter extreme dryness, thinning and loss of density which are typical of menopausal skin. The exclusive Cell-Support Technology™ uses the synergistic effect of chicory extract, a biotechnological marine extract and eco-sustainable maracuja oil, to restore optimal functionality of the skin and to address contrasting cellular anarchy brought about by hormonal decrease.
