Achieving Summer Beauty Goals with Belo

IMG_8765

Summer is officially here! I love to call it the “Merry Month of March” even though the upcoming scorching heat can get a little troublesome sometimes. Why? Because I use it as a perfect excuse for overstaying in the mall. Oh, and that always spells trouble for me, in my pocket and my tummy.

Of course, a lot of you will agree that come summertime, everyone starts making plans to head for the beach.  Not only to beat the summer heat, but also to celebrate with friends and family, with kids most especially, the exhausting school year that has been or break from the daily challenge at work, not to mention, that much needed relief from the 24-hour traffic in the metro. Out of town trips always has that rewarding feel even though you’ll eventually end up dead tired afterwards. Happy tired, that’s what it is!  It’s always the perfect way to unwind and take a breather and just bracing ourselves for the coming sweaty and sticky days ahead! We live in the tropics where the sun is at its hottest during our beach trips.  Still, grateful for the opportunity that there’s always a good and valid reason to frolick in the sand, stay for endless hours under the sun and just enjoy the refreshing salty waters of the beach.

Undoubtedly, happiness for me is when I’m out and about under the sun, clad in my favorite swimwear, taking in the breathtaking beauty of the beach.  Nothing else matters to me when I’m out enjoying because I feel good about everything I see and feel.  That is precisely the reason why, most especially upon the most anticipated arrival of summer came, I chose to be hair free! I’ve never felt so confident!

A lot of my events involve night outs, outdoor activities and lots of beach trips.  Each and every time, I have to prepare by presenting my best self. That includes shaving, of course!  Yes, I have to do it all the time and shaving my legs and underarms can be quite bothersome. It’s a long and painfully tedious process.  That is the reason why I consider my “shaving day”, my “hassle day.”  Not to mention, it scars and darkens my skin after years of repeated shaving.  I can’t believe I actually allowed my body to suffer like that.

I’ve been a Belo baby since 2009. Way back in grade school and high school days, no one can make me wear shorts or dresses showing my legs because of the scars on my knees. I always wanted to dress up and mimic my style crushes but I can’t because of my insecurities. Until one day, I decided to ask help from Belo Medical Group to get rid of my scars. It was one of the best decisions I’ve done because it has boosted my self-confidence.

And now, since I need to get my body ready for summer, I went to my favorite Belo branch which is in Alabang to help me with my problem. After my consultation with my doctor, she suggested for me to do Revlite, Laser Hair Removal and Body Scrub,

Revlite is a painless procedure that uses PhotoAcoustic action which breaks down pigmented lesions into smaller particles without harming normal tissues around. It also helps to even out the skin tone of the underarms. Best of all, it treats dark spots leaving our armpits smooth and fair. Of course, I gave it a try and it did wonders!  After only 2 sessions of Revlite, I immediately noticed whiter, smoother underarms!

Belo’s Laser Hair Removal is the most precise and probably the most painless procedure to get rid of unwanted and unsightly hair so its easier to flaunt underarms and legs like never before. The machine they use for Hair Removal is so gentle they aptly called it GentleMax Pro. It is a dual wavelength laser that combines the fastest and most powerful 755nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064nm laser for high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease of use, safety and patient satisfaction.

Well, all those numbers sounds greek to me, but yes, I want that!  Oh, how I wish I knew about these treatments way before I have subjected myself to pain and hard work time and time again.

Anesthesia first before the treatment! They will leave the cream for about 30-45 minutes.

I’m over the moon having tried the Body Scrub with Bleach.  It is a combination of sea salt/ sugar scrub and essential oils that gently exfoliates dead, dry, rough skin leaving skin baby soft and smooth.  Of course, everyone wants baby smooth skin forever. It is then followed by an application of natural bleaching agent made from grape seed extract, AHA and licorice to naturally whiten skin. This treatment helped a LOT. IMG_8783

I would have to admit that having these treatments done gave me the extra boost of confidence I needed. Wearing skimpy outfits doesn’t bother me as much anymore. I used to be so self-conscious before but now, not anymore because I know I’m confidently and beautifully covered.

Here are some photos from my recent trip to Pampanga and Puerto Galera!
