Sharper, clearer vision at the prime of life


Although it is said that “life begins at 40,” many people still dread reaching the so-called prime of their lives. This is the time when undesirable physical changes start to appear. One of the most telling signs of being 40 is the beginning of eye problems like presbyopia or near-vision blurriness.

But do people really have to suffer poor vision as they age? Top actor Piolo Pascual does not think so.

Piolo, who recently turned 40, continues to charm audiences on the silver screen and television with his expressive eyes, which light up in romances, pierce through rivals in action-thrillers and brim with tears in dramas.

Piolo emphasizes the importance of taking care of one’s health and ensuring and protecting clear eyesight. For people who enter their 40s and start to experience near-vision blurriness, he recommends having the eyes checked regularly. He says that the key to keeping the eyes healthy midlife are prevention, protection and correction. He recommends Varilux® lenses for his fellow forty-somethings with presbyopia.

Varilux® progressive lenses are recognized worldwide as an optimal solution to achieving natural, sharper vision in any distance, with smooth transition in between. Using patented W.A.V.E 2.0 and Binocular Booster™ lens technologies, Varilux® lenses help those in the prime of their lives see effortlessly in any distance, and also help boost their active lifestyles.

Pascual says, “Turning 40 is one of the greatest milestones in life that we should embrace and appreciate. We need healthy vision to see and enjoy every moment in our life, which is why it’s important that we take care of our eyes. With healthy vision, we can live our lives to the fullest.”

Feel good and look good while enjoying the prime of your life with healthy eyesight. Use Varilux® to achieve sharper and clearer vision. For more information, visit Essilor’s website at www.essilor.com.ph, and follow @EssilorPH on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

#BicToSchool for a Brighter Future




BIC Product Asia launched "Bright Future are Written by Hand" as its back-to-school campaign in the Philippines in partnership with their exclusive distributor in the country, the Filstar Distributors Corporation.

You migh ask why is BIC still emphasizing on handwriting given the proliferation of technology. It is true that we are living in a changing world and while handwriting might seem trivial for some, let us not forget that handwriting is still essential to a child's development. The act of handwriting alone helps develop a child's cognitive and motor skills, helps boost memory and creativity as well as promotes self-confidence and interpersonal skills 

Last October 26, 2017, BIC Product Asia celebrated the importance of handwriting and education together with the friends from media and bloggers. BIC Product Asia kicked off its biggest social campaign in Asia, #BICBrightFuture in cooperation with Filstar Distributors Corporation.

As Champions of Education, BIC® believes that a bright future is for everyone. As such, BIC® will be having a half million of Stationery products - the biggest donation in Asia to date - to Children's Hour, Yellow Boat of Hope and Kariton Klasrum to help kids as they pursue their dreams.

The campaign of #BICBrightFuture happened at KidZania Manila in BGC for a fun day and learning and playing with the company's estimated 200 children beneficiaries from Children's Hour, Kariton Klasrum and Yellow Boat of Hope.

For one day, the children are encouraged to have fun while exploring the adult world by immersing themselves in over 100 role-play activities in the play city Using BIC® pens, they will also plot out their goals and dreams in a special BIC® Bright Futures workbook.

The event was hosted by Ms. Issa Litton, #BICBrightFutures event encourages Fipino children to love handwriting again and emphasizes that education is very important to have a brighter future.


Mr. Efren Penaflorida, founder of Kariton Klasrum, an education advocate, teacher, and social worker, talked to the kids about the importance of going back to school and how it will help them build a brighter future. He also shared the best valuable lesson in life.

"Out main focus, since Kariton Klasrum's inception, has always been about bringing  education to less-fortunate children. Through this event, we will be able to show them that a bright future is possible for them as long as they plan for it and persevere to achieve it," said Efren Penaflorida.

Ms. Net Garcia, Children's Hour Executive Director said that "Many children are in great need of encouragement from the adults in their lives in order to push themselves to work hard for a better future. We are happy that our kids will walk away with a sneak peak at what their own futures can hold, as well as a new hope."



"We have always believed that bright futures are written by hand. As adults, many of us have become what are we today because we put pen to paper and wrote down our ambitions. That act of writing down our aspirations makes the dream seem real. Today, we want to inspire less-fortune children to dream and work for their futures, because after all, everyone deserves a bright future." said Frederic Dumon, BIC Asia Deputy General Manager.

BIC® feels strongly about giving back to communities where the Group i7s present in the form of product or financial donations and volunteering.

Never Let Lose A Strand Of Your Patience



Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.

Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.

Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.

Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.

Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.

Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.

Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.



Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.

Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.

Tip 1:  The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.

Tip 2:  Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.

Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.



Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply liberal amount on to your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment and rejuvenation of your tress.

NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. For more information, please contact hotlines 4136570 and 09228830575 from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm or visit www.n.ovuhair.com
