MYRA Vitamin E Benefits on ACNE Prone Skin | RealAsianBeauty Acne

As someone who has acne-prone and imperfect skin, I perfectly know how difficult it is to deal with skin issues. One day, skin is clear and glowing then the next day, it's rough and dull. People who have dealt with acne will understand the struggle.

One of the advices I give to people who seek for my help regarding skin is that they should ALWAYS START FROM WITHIN. 


Starting from "within" means treating the acne where it is actually coming from and to also live healthy and stay healthy. Aside from getting enough sleep, drinking lots of water and eating the right foods, it is also important we indulge our body to vitamins and minerals.

One of the MOST EFFECTIVE vitamins when it comes to helping the skin get better and become glowing is MYRA VITAMIN E 400 IU. It has many important roles in helping keep our organs and tissues well-functioning and maintaining our health. 



WHAT IS MYRA VITAMIN E and WHAT DOES IT DO?

MYRA VITAMIN E is the leading brand of Vitamin E here in the Philippines. 
It helps the body produce red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout the body. It boosts the immune system therefore helping us fight infection and others. Also, vitamin e is an important antioxidant that helps stabilize free radicals. When we are exposed to these toxins (or sunlight), it could lead to skin aging. 

Daily intake of Myra Vitamin E may help avoid some diseases and it may also prevent skin degeneration. In lay man's term, taking Myra Vitamin E may help in achieving our ultimate dream of having clear, radiant and glowing skin!

To show you a true-to-life transformation, here are my Before and After photos:


Before taking MYRA Vitamin E, I could say I looked like sh*t. My hair was dry, my skin was rough and it looks so bad. You will also see acne-breakout going on. 



After finishing 1 bottle of the Myra Vitamin E, here's how my skin looked. Yes, in the photo, I did my brows, applied mascara and some lip tint. But my skin is 100% bare. Though my acne scars are still visible, you will notice that my hair appears healthier, my skin has that unexplainable glow and the acne breakout somehow lessened. You will notice that there is a certain kind of glow. Like, the glow of being sincerely happy and extremely in love. (If you like cheesy lines, that's for you!)

If you are a first-time reader, allow me to give you an overview of my skin. I used to have extreme acne-breakout. You can read more about it if you go to my ALL ABOUT ACNE blog section. Anyway, my skin was so bad, it looked impossible to heal. So, if you compare my skin before and then my skin after taking MYRA Vitamin E, you will see how greatly it has improved!



For more details about my MYRA VITAMIN E experience and 
to see my skin in motion, please watch the video below!



Here are other things you want to know about MYRA VITAMIN E

HOW MUCH IS MYRA VITAMIN E :
Each Myra E 400 IU 30 capsules cost Php 355 per bottle. 

WHEN SHOULD YOU TAKE IT :
Each bottle comes with 30 capsules which you can take 1 a day. To allow the vitamin to take full effect on the body, take it before bed time with luke warm water. Doing so will allow it to be fully absorbed by your body while it regenerates while you're sleeping.

WOULD IT MAKE THE SKIN WHITER :
Myra E's first function is to act as an anti-oxidant that fights free radicals in the body. It could help you by giving you cleared and glowing skin but it does not directly whiten the skin. 

IS IT SAFE DURING PREGNANCY
Certain vitamins are good for pregnant women. But high dosage of it may be harmful to pregnancy therefore it wise to avoid it.  





Overall, I am really happy with how MYRA VITAMIN E helped me achieve cleared skin and a glowing complexion. For only Php 355 monthly, I would say this is a pretty good skin maintenance, especially if you are dealing with acne and other skin conditions. 

My last advice would be to take lots and lots of water with it. Water is the universal solvent and trust me when I say that there is nothing water can't do.

Vlog : TAYTAY TIANGGE SHOPPING + SCHEDULE and TIPS!

Finally, your ultimate guide to shopping in Taytay, Rizal is here! 

Taytay, Rizal is the Garments Capital of the Philippines. With that being said, one could really expect clothes and apparels to be extremely cheap yet trendy here! Taytay videos have been making buzz on YouTube that even though my house is located far from Taytay, I braved everything and just decided to go. I really wanted to see for myself and share with you guys why it is so raved! 




SCHEDULE :
The most asked question about it is the schedule. What days is Taytay open? What is the best day and time to go to Taytay? And so on...
For the record, you can go everyday from 6 AM to 5 PM, however BEST DAY and TIME to go are really on Monday and Thursday at 6 PM until 10 AM the next day!!



LOCATION
Taytay, Rizal tiangge is located near Club Manila East. For first timers who are coming from QC or far places, I would suggest asking someone to go with you. If you are going alone, I reckon the best way to go on your first visit is by Grab or Uber. If you have a car, prepare your Waze app to be sure you don't get lost.

HOW TO GET THERE
There are many ways to get there. But on my first-ever visit, I asked my friend, Flora, to go with me. We took Grabshare and booked 2 seats. From Cubao to Taytay, we paid Php 365 pesos. Pretty pricey but we didn't want to take the risk of getting lost. 



Here are other options :

Using Google Maps or Waze - pin Club Manila Eeast

Public Transportation - 
Commonwealth : take UV express or jeepney going to Sta. Lucia. From there, ride jeepney going to Taytay/Angono/Binangonan.
Cubao : take UV express or jeepney going to Angono/Binangonan. You may also opt to take LRT get off at Santolan Station and then ride jeepney going to Angono/Binangonan.
Quaipo : take bus, jeep or UV going to Taytay.

Ask the driver to stop for you at Taytay Tiangge. You surely won't miss it because you will see the stalls of clothes.




Just don't make the same mistake I did when I went to Taytay. My friend and I knew the stalls would close at 5PM. But we left Cubao at 1 PM hence we got there around 3 PM. We didn't have enough time to see all the stalls and to hoard for cheap clothes! Too bad! 

But for 2 hours shopping, I'd say my haul is not bad at all!
Please watch my YouTube Vlog for the complete Taytay Tiangge Shopping Experience.




Here are some interesting things you'd see in Taytay,..





PROS of Shopping in Taytay : 

  • SUPER CHEAP CLOTHES (as in mas mura kesa Divisoria)
  • Lots of stalls to choose from
  • Trendy and timely designs
  • You support local garment industry when you shop there

CONS of Shopping in Taytay :

  • Far from QC and Manila
  • Stalls are not air conditioned and are contained in covered areas
  • In short, mainit
  • I find it difficult to shop and choose when I have so much to choose from




SHOPPING TIPS in Taytay (from a Tiangge expert!)

  • Look simple, don't look rich - sellers tend not to give discount to people who look rich.
  • Wear cool and comfy clothes as the place could get hot, especially if you're coming in the afternoon.
  • Must-haves : Fan, something to wipe your sweat, bottled water, biscuits or crackers
  • HAGGLE. Don't look too interested YET. If you think the price is still steep, pretend you're walking away looking sad that you can't afford their price. This ALWAYS works, I promise!
  • Check for damage, missing buttons, etc, before leaving the stall. 
  • Bring loose change and small bills. It would be difficult to buy that Php 50 top when you have Php 1,000 bill.
  • Bring your own bag. Also, I urge you guys to STOP taking plastic bags from tiangge and palengke. Haven't you noticed these stuff only gets thrown away once you get home?! My tip is to bring an eco-bag with you, pay for the item and toss them in the bag-WITHOUT the plastic. It won't make a difference to you or to the clothes BUT a big difference to the WORLD.

*PHOTO DUMP*








It always breaks my heart to see dogs being sold in places like this. I also see stuff like this in Divisoria. I can't help but notice how stressed, tired and thirsty the dogs look... :(



This was around the time President Duterte signed the EO 26 or the SMOKING BAN in public places. It disappoints me how some smokers have no regard for those who CHOSE not to smoke. We all can choose to smoke, right? But we opted not to because of personal reasons. And them blowing us 2nd-hand cigarette smoke is truly unfair. 
Smoking in PUBLIC PLACES has since become rampant again. It's really heart-breaking that even simple rules like this still can't be abided by some citizens.

Clearly, no matter which side you are on or what color your flag is, if we don't follow rules and laws, the Philippines would really still need decades just to improve. Sad but true.


Anyway, it was a long and tiring day but nevertheless fun and fulfilling. 



WHO should shop at Taytay

  • People who are trendy and fashionable but would like to be on budget
  • Moms who have several kids
  • People who have tiangge business in QC, Manila or Province
  • People aiming to start an online business and work at home
  • Basically, people who want to save money on clothes!!!

Vice Cosmetics is making waves in the beauty industry. I decided to buy some to test if they are really worth the money or if everything is just based on hype.

I have the typical Morena Filipina skin tone hence nude and neutral lip colors suit me best. I like that Vice came out with shades that are perfect for Pinays.





MY SHADES : Benjamin | Pony | Showtime | Star

PRICE : Each Vice Cosmetics Lip Kit costs Php 295 each


Please watch my YouTube video for the FULL review and swatches!

  • Lip cream smells like chocolate
  • Suuuper lightweight | I was impressed

EXO KOKOBOP (Music Video) REACTION

EXO is one of the biggest groups in K-pop. If you don't know them, WHY?

They recently released a new album THE WAR. One of the tracks in the said album is Kokobop. I honestly haven't fangirled in a long time so I thought of doing a reaction video to capture my raw and authentic reaction on the video.



WATCH THE VIDEO to see my reaction :



How do you fangirl, though? I have seen almost every time of K-pop fangirl and I could safely say I am the "closet type" of fan. Not because I feel ashamed or anything but because I just tend to squeal on the inside rather than to burst my emotions on the outside. Hence, my reserved reactions in the video. 

If you are new to this page, you may be interested to read more about my other real-life encounters with EXO here in the Philippines!

1.) Dream K-pop Fantasy Concert 1 - read here
2.) K-pop Republic Concert - read here
3.) EXO EXO'luXion Concert - read here
4.) EXO EXO'rDium Concert - read  here


There are lots of K-pop groups now but EXO will always and forever be one of my favorites. I hope they still make it even after 5 or 10 years from now. I have so much adoration towards the group and towards the members. It would give me joy to still see them soar despite the numerous groups sprouting and older generation groups disbanding or falling apart...


I hope you enjoyed my video.

A Visit at the Far Eastern University | My Beloved Alma Mater

No matter how far we go, we always want to go back where we began. It feels good to reminisce the good old days, don't you agree? That's why I feel ecstatic whenever I visit FEU. It feels like coming back home after a long journey. 



I recently visited FEU to have a talk and share bits of my knowledge to 4th year Management Students. Like I've said before, never have I imagined I would someday be giving talks and speech to students because I was so shy to speak in front, least recite, when I was still studying. There's just something about standing and talking while the whole class sits and stares at you, right? It's nerve-wracking. But for some reason, I got older and became passionate about speaking to people and sharing what I know. I truly enjoy doing this now and I hope I could visit more schools and universities in the future.



My task that day was to share some of what I know about makeup for the corporate world. Since the students are graduating and would be applying for jobs soon. I taught them about personality development and how they could use makeup to enhance and elevate their game in the corporate world. 


The night before that, I prepared my short (yet super colorful) AV presentation. 


The event was held at the FEU Technology Building and it was attended by 4th year FEU Management students, headed by the Management Society. 



I am thankful for the trust and opportunity they gave me. Thank you so much, FEU Management Students!


And huge SHOUTOUT to everyone I saw on the campus that day. Thank you for saying hi to me and for taking selfies with me. It's truly means so much to me each time I see in real life the people who watch my videos.



I was supposed to film another FEU vlog for my viewers on YouTube but the weather didn't permit me to do so as it started raining right after my talk. I stayed at AB grounds because I just missed my "tambay sa AB ground" days. 

I also witnessed how honest FEU students are. I saw this phone laying on the bench, untouched. Apparently, it was left by someone (who later turned out to be a vlogger on vine, too) Anyway, I hope the honestly on the campus continues. Good job, my baby Tamaraws!


By the way, here's what I wore that day! A simple pink and white ensemble. Toned colors and cut yet still me - pink and girly. Hehe



If you and someone you know need a guest speaker for a university event, please don't ever hesitate to come to me. I offer it pro-bono because it's the only way I feel like I could give back to the community. Plus, I truly enjoy speaking in front and sharing my knowledge! Just e-mail me or contact me through my social media accounts.
