Heading to the beach may be the most exciting part of summer. It is almost always part of the itinerary this season for most people. Others prefer to give in to their adrenaline rush climbing that mountain slope or just about anything that gets you that summer tan to fit in the crowd.
Did you know that spending extended hours under the extreme summer sun can pose serious danger to your hair and scalp? The same UV rays that brings damage to your skin without proper protection can equally hurt your hair and scalp.
Below are some of the problems your hair can encounter during the season:
- Split-Ends – UV rays and extreme high temperature can take their toll on your strands. The heat drains the moisture of your hair out causing breakage.
- Double Trouble – Rebonded or permed hair needs extra attention as high temperature well as humidity disrupts the cuticle breaking some of the chemical bonds that keep the hair straight or curls and roughing up the cuticle, taking away shine and smoothness.
- Scalp problem – Scalp may also get sun-burned if you don’t use cover-ups for your head.
- Grease problem – Summer sun and humidity can bring extra grease on your hair, leaving it vulnerable to damage.
- Chlorine Stress – Swimming in the pool subjects your hair to chlorine. The outer layers of the cuticle of the hair opens up when you swim and chlorinated water seeps into the center of the hair thus making your hair more brittle.
- Excessive Salt Water – Salt water can cause the same damage as chlorinated ones. Salt water dries on the hair it creates a high-saline solution which can build up and cause hair to feel dry, weighed down and hard to manage.
All these problem can be addressed by keeping your hair clean and showered after each activities. Take vitamin supplements that benefits you hair such as Vitamin C and Biotin. Getting your hair pampered will also give respite to the sun and chemical abuse.

Summer season is upon us! This is the time to bask under the glorious rays of the sun and have fun- sunbathe at the beach, engage in outdoor sports, or just simply enjoy the balmy weather without the fear of rain disrupting our activities.
However, with temperatures soaring during these sweltering summer months, we all need to be aware when our bodies are trying to tell us we need a good dose of rehydration. Water comprises 70% of our bodies, and once this level decreases by even a small percentage, we become dehydrated. Here are some of the most common symptoms of dehydration to watch out for:
Thirst is the body’s most automatic indicator of dehydration. It is the first reminder that we need to restore fluid balance for our bodies to function properly
Headaches and dizziness
When we are dehydrated, the water content in our body drops and results in a decreased flow of oxygen to the brain. This triggers the pain receptors surrounding our brains, inducing nagging migraines and feelings of dizziness.
Maintaining a healthy fluid balance is imperative in keeping our biological functions running smoothly. When we are dehydrated, the kidneys try to conserve water by concentrating urine, so when urine is appears in a darker yellow shade, it means that the body’s fluid balance has been compromised.
Our skin’s appearance and elasticity is very much affected by our fluid balance. When we are dehydrated, fluids pull away from our skin and redirect to other major organs in the body to preserve proper biological functions.
Sluggishness and fatigue
Dehydration can definitely affect your body’s endurance levels throughout the day, causing feelings of tiredness and decreased alertness. This can impair concentration and cause a disruption with daily and work activities.
The most effective way to revert the effects of dehydration and heat exhaustion is by increasing fluid intake, and water is definitely the most effective key to restoring our body’s all-important fluid balance. Our bodies also lose important nutrients when we are dehydrated, so drinking water high in natural minerals and nutrients is also important in keeping our biological functions running in tiptop condition.

I have high respect for agencies that put so much creativity and heart on their commercial ads. Say for examples the brains behind the commercial ads of Philippines’ biggest fast food chains. They DO NOT HARDSELL, instead, their ads convey subtle information by tugging our heart strings, leaving viewers no choice but to remember the brand.
DoubleMint has somehow adapted this norm and has joined the league of brands that create heart warming commercial ads.
Netizens have expressed their kilig for the couple and their story
“Oh, I love this commercial, so much feels! Good job for creating this wonderful commercial Doublemint.” says Vera Reyes. Inchet Flores complimented Wrigley’s Doublemint Team saying that the commercial is perfect and she loved the story of the commercial.
Being the sentimental lot we are, one can’t help but document moments like these–the first conversation, first date, anything that is a memory worth keeping. The story of Sarah and Juan has reached through our deepest feelings of finding love in the simplest things. We watched their story unfold and were glued to our monitors just to see how the story ends.
Now imagine if you could put your love story in those wrappers and share it to the world, just like what
And just like Juan, my celebrity couple have already taken part and have shared their love stories through LoveWraps.
I recently watch Can’t Help Falling in Love (you know, KathNiel!!!) to feel good, and believe in romance again. If you’re like me then you’d certainly find these images and scenes familiar.
Share Your Story through Doublemint Lovewraps
This April, Doublemint will make this possible through LoveWraps. LoveWraps is your sweetest kilig moments turned into sketches on Doublemint wrappers. Just log in to www.mylovewraps.com, upload three pictures that best tell your love story, and voila, your DoublemintLovewraps are ready! If that isn’t enough, the best entries of the promo can win a trip to Boracay, giving a new moment for the winners to share.
I’m bugging my husband to share our story through DoubleMint LoveWraps, he is thinking about it as of this writing HAHAHA
