Checking out the NU Skin Expo

Dave and I checked out the NU SKIN Expo held at the NU Skin Philippines HQ. We got to try out the Galvanic Spa (which helps combat aging!), their Epoch Essential Oils, their Trimshake and their body analysis machine which revealed that my body age is 5 years younger than my real age!

The S3 Biophotonic Scanner also revealed my skin carotenoid score which is an indicator of the tissue carotenoid concentration and antioxidant levels of my body. If you get a 10,000-19,000 score, that means 1) You don’t consume enough vegetables, fruits and supplements 2) You’re under a lot of stress; high sun and pollution exposure and 3) You smoke or are always exposed to someone who smokes.

If you get a 30,000-39,000 score, you 1) Get a moderate amount of fruits and vegetables 2) Have regular supplementation 3) Moderate stress, sun, and pollution exposure.

40,000-50,000 means you consume huge amounts of fruits and vegetables, have optimal supplementation, low stress, sun and pollution exposure. I was surprised that I got 60,000! 😀 All that vegan food is doing me good! Watch the different stations we visited in the vlog below

[WATCH] PERMANENT BROWS AND LIPTINT AT PRETTY LOOKS

In this video I take you through my S3 Eyebrow Stranding & Cherry Blossom Lip Tint procedure at Pretty Looks Uptown Mall. 🙂 Although I already had my eyebrows done last year, the pigment eventually faded (virgin brows, to blame?) so I’m glad I was able to have it done again by Pretty Looks.

Decades ago, getting your eyebrows tattooed was something you wouldn’t openly discuss with anyone. The dead giveaway would be when your brows begin to turn gray, dark green or bluish. Today, people are more open about permanent make-up, especially now that #EyeBrowsOnFleek is a huge trend globally. Still, we have to admit that not everyone has all the time in the morning to draw on the perfect arch. Over the years, there’s been great improvement on both the eyebrow tattoo technique and the pigments used by aestheticians. With the modern formulation, you no longer have to worry about your brows turning into an unsightly, artificial color and the stranding techniques mimic the look of real brow hair.

Really happy with how hair-like it turned out! I may be smiling here but the anesthesia was starting to wear off. So I was feeling the sting.

The whole brow procedure was done in 45 minutes. Blair was so gentle during the entire procedure, it was virtually painless. She would often ask me if I was feeling okay and I appreciate that she truly cares for her clients.

After my brows, Tita Susan began working on my liptint!

Again, I may be smiling here but really couldn’t feel my lips. I was a bit fearful that I would feel the needle but I’m grateful that the procedure went on smoothly. The aftercare is another story.

Watch the VLOG below to get a better idea of both procedures. I’ll post another video about the aftercare and what the brows and lips look like within 5 days.
