Nanay's Day Out: The Derma 360 Way

by - 10:12 PM

Have you ever felt this way?

Perhaps, after all the taking care of the baby and the husband, the online jobs I juggle, the house chores, the events,  and maybe even this blog, I have grown tired and weary.

And well, if you read in the image below you can see how ugly and unhappy I felt.

This was me more than a month ago:

Comments and messages came pouring in.

The top suggestions "to feel better" were, in no particular order:

1. Shopping
2. Pampering (maniped, massage, facial, etc.)
3. Coffee or mommy date

So here it is!

Luckily, I was chosen by Mummy Jay of The Momma Club to try out Derma 360's Premium Facial last August 30 in their Me & My Baby Event. The clinic prepared a day of fun and relaxation for mummies and babies at their flagship center in Rockwell.

My mind was screaming, "Yahoo! I needed this!"

Popy and I got a slot for the second session. They've prepared a play area for the kids with arts and crafts, snacks, and a loot bag that contained something for the whole family (at least, for mine because we're only three). My son enjoyed playing with the bubbles. :)

Got a gift certificate for my husband from Spectre Manila, beauty essentials and bubbles!

Dr. Joanne Bustamante - Gonzalez, M.D. discussed common skin diseases among kids, and this is a must-know since we're mummies. One of the most common, which we see in newborn babies, is the cradle cap. It's those scaly patches of dry skin that even I, as a first time mom, got worried about. I'm guilty of trying to pick it from my son's head, but apparently, it goes away on its own or you can just do regular shampooing to manage it.

Another is insect bites. My husband, most especially is so paranoid about these. The advice was to apply cold compress on the bites, instead of rubbing it with alcohol (which makes the skin dry) or applying hot compress (because it stimulates itchiness, all the more).

Dr. Joanne also stressed on the importance of making sure that the skin clinics we go to are accredited by the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS).

Here's the really good part:

Their Premium Facial! This is a combination of their basic facial plus Diamond Peel, Oxyjet Peel and Theralight.

To be honest, I haven't been to a skin clinic since that Diamond Peel last December 2013. I know what you're thinking. I told you I really need this. I lost my left eyebrow (yes, just one), three months postpartum, and had a break out because of hormonal changes. The hormones kinda stayed for a while. To top it off, my eyeglasses created marks under my eyes, as you can see on the photo below.

I forgot to take a photo of the "after", but my skin definitely felt softer and smoother. Now, I'm just trying to convince my husband to make this a monthly thing. Haha!
