Rawat Kulit Melecur Dengan Saapuu

Bimbang dengan keadaan ibu berdepan dengan dua masalah kulit seperti kayap dan kulit melecur sejak beberapa bulan lalu, pelajar di sebuah politeknik ibu negara jadi tidak senang duduk.

Itulah yang dirasai anak bongsu enam beradik, Nur Farahana Arshat, 22, terhadap situasi tidak menyenangkan dialami ibunya,
Zarina Zakaria yang kini berusia 57 tahun.

Sebagai anak, Nur Farahana yang berasal dari Kedah sampai tahap buntu memikirkan solusi yang boleh dicari demi menyenangkan hati ibunya.

Hinggalah dia tidak semena mena melihat iklan produk Saapuu keluaran Mawar Shazni Sdn Bhd di Facebook yang didakwanya penuh dengan mukjizat dan keajaiban dengan izin-Nya.

“Insiden tertumpah kuah laksa yang panas menggelegak di bahagian kakinya. Ini antara pengalaman memeritkan ibu saya kerana sampai tak senang duduk dan meraung

“Ketika insiden itu terjadi, ibu saya menjerit dan seperti tak tentu arah. Solusi pantas, saya ambil minyak masak dan disapu di bahagian yang terkena kuah laksa itu. Bagaimanapun sakit yang ditanggung beransur seketika.

“Lama kelamaan, bahagia melecur itu jadi seperti gelembung besar. Kalau terkena air masa mandi contohnya memang terasa pedih. Lama juga ibu menanggung kesakitan. Tapi sejak mencuba Saapuu, perubahan ketara mula kelihatan dalam tempoh masa 10 hari penggunaannya,” katanya.

Kata Nur Farahana lagi, selepas hilang sengsara kulit melecur, ibunya tiba tiba diserang kayap di bahagian perut pula.

“Namun sejak ada produk Saapuu, nampaknya masalah kayap pun hilang serta merta.

“Kayap itu bermula dengan rasa gatal dan kulit jadi kemerah merahan. Seterusnya wujud seperti gelembung di bahagian terkena kayap itu.

“Terbukti produk keluaran bumiputera ini sangat berbaloi dengan harga berpatutan.
Ia dibuat daripada bahan organik yang sememangnya terbukti untuk kebaikan kulit. Antaranya seperti minyak argan,madu, daun sirih, daun pegaga,curcumin, daun gelenggang dan aloe vera.

“Lebih utama, produk ini ada kelulusan daripada Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia(KKM). Jadi ia memang diakui selamat digunakan tanpa rasa was-was.
Masalah kulit ibu saya tiada lagi. Saya sudah tidak risau lagi tentangnya,” katanya

Sementara itu, pengasas produk terbabit, Rosniwati Beharom, 45, mensasarkan untuk menjual lebih 40,000 set rangkaian Saapuu.

3 Things to Do When You Bring Home a New Dog

For many people, a family doesn’t feel complete unless there is a dog in the mix. Dogs bring a great deal of love and joy into the family circle and can also help to teach the younger members of the family about responsibility and what it means to care for another.

You might find that you would like to adopt a dog for your family for these and many other reasons. However, if you haven’t owned a dog before, you might not be aware of what you need to do to get started on the right foot with your new furry friend.

The fact of the matter is that it is going to take some time for your new dog to get used to its new home. It is likely used to a very different sort of environment, so you should be prepared for a bit of an adjustment period right from the start. However, with the right amount of preparation and planning, you can make this transitional period for your dog and your family much smoother for everyone involved.

With that in mind, here are three things that you will want to do when you bring home your new dog.

1. Call the Vet

Just because the dog that you have adopted is healthy and in good shape, that doesn’t mean that you should put off making the first call to the vet. You will need to register your dog with a vet and make sure that your pup has received all recommended and required vaccinations.

It is a good idea to do a quick search on veterinary clinics in your area prior to bringing your pup home so that you can make sure to find one that offers all of the services that you are looking for. For example, some vet clinics, such as Green Valley Veterinary Clinic, offer grooming services in addition to quality veterinary care.

2. Make Space for Your Pup

Another thing that you will want to take care of before you bring your new dog home is to designate a specific place for him or her in your house. For example, find an ideal place to put a doggy bed and all of their new toys so that they will know right away that they have a place that is all their own.

By giving your dog its own space, you can help them to feel more at ease with their new home. When they know that they can retreat to their own space when they are tired or overwhelmed, they will acclimate much quicker.

3. Prepare the Family

Your dog isn’t the only one who is going to be experiencing a major life change when you bring them home. The rest of your family will also need to be ready for the new addition. Make sure that you take steps to prepare kids, especially younger ones, for the new arrival so that they know how they should treat their new pup.

The VIP Pass-One deal you should get

Fancy a well- deserved holiday when the lockdown is all eased up in Malaysia? Well, I sure would like to give myself a holiday, preferably a diving holiday once travel restrictions is lifted. It’s been a long surface interval for me. And for many other scuba divers in Malaysia too, I’m sure.

I dreamed of the day I can go diving again. Just thinking about it makes me imagine the sun, sea and sand and all the joy the underwater world would bring. Oh, what joy it would be to travel again, but for now, all I can do is just look at fantastic travel offers that tourism operators are offering. As they say, dream and plan now, pack your bags and travel later.

Here’s one that I think that’s worth your money; The VIP Pass.

The VIP Pass is a premium membership programme where as a sign up bonus, we will be getting six nights redeemable at more than 137 hotels around Malaysia over a 24-month period.

Sounds cool? Well, there’s more! You get 6 nights stay at a hotel of your choice for just RM399 with 2 years of validity. That means it’s just RM66 per night. Now, isn’t that a steal? I sure think it is. And the best part is that the 6 nights can be used separately.

Among participating hotels that can be redeemed using the VIP Pass are; Sunway Hotel, Impiana Hotel, Hilton, Westin, Dorsett, Alia, Berjaya Times Square, Pacific Regency, Ibis, Concorde, Fraser Residence, Ascott, Bayview, Travelodge, Genting, Swiss Garden Hotel and many more.

Worried that you will not be able to use the VIP Pass as the place you’re living in is still stricken with Covid19 and you can’t go anywhere due to the lockdown imposed in your area? Fret not, The VIP Pass offers a money back guarantee to customers who do not have the opportunity to use the promotion for two years, so if you’re looking for a memorable and well-deserved vacation but on a strict budget, this is definitely something you might want to invest in.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab the VIP Pass, plan your vacation now and travel later.

SaaPuu, Rangkaian Penjagaan Kulit Holistik Untuk Lelaki Dan Wanita

Berdepan masalah kulit kusam, tona tak sekata dan penuh bintik hitam bukan satu keinginan yang didambakan sesiapapun dalam dunia ini.

Tambahan pula Malaysia berdepan iklim panas yang berpanjangan.

Bagi Sharon Teh atau nama sebenarnya Teh Swee Lin masalah bintik hitam di lengan dan tangannya dialami sejak 20 tahun lalu benar benar menyesakkan matanya.

Wanita berusia 52 tahun dari Taiping, Perak yang bekerja dalam bidang jualan ini pada satu tahap rimas dengan masalah yang bagai tiada pengakhirannya.

Kerap ‘berjemur’ dek komitmen keluar bekerja di bawah panas terik matahari antara punca masalah bintik hitam mula bermaharajalela.

“Puas mencuba pelbagai produk kulit di pasaran, hasilnya tetap mengecewakan saya. Kesudahannya lebur semua wang begitu saja.

“Pernah juga terfikir mahu melakukan rawatan laser di kulit tangan itu. Tapi difikirkan kosnya memang sangat mahal. Saya amat realistik namun tidaklah sampai tahap membazir wang.

“Pada satu tahap, saya hampir putus asa mencari solusi terbaik merawat masalah dialami. Biasalah golongan wanita mahupun lelaki zaman sekarang ini semua pentingkan kecantikan diri,” katanya

Malah pada satu tahap Sharon terlalu geram hingga tidak sanggup melihat lengan sendiri.

“Nak pakai baju tidak berlengan pun tak sanggup. Saya jadi geram, tak selesa dan malu nak berpakaian mendedahkan kulit

“Pendek kata, saya akan cari solusi untuk menyarung jaket, kot atau memakai baju berlengan panjang,” katanya.

Bagaimanapun dipendekkan cerita, sekitar Mei lalu, iklan produk kesihatan kulit Saapuu pantas mencuri perhatiannya.

“Sejujurnya saya tidak tahu kenapa iklan produk berkenaan begitu pantas menangkap pandangan mata dan hati. Lantas saya menghubungi pihak mereka untuk bertanyakan lanjut mengenai produk itu.

“Saya masih ingat lagi tanggal 11 Mei produk itu selamat sampai di rumah untuk dicuba.
Selepas beberapa kali menyapu krim dan gel kulitnya berturut turut, kesan bintik hitam kian pudar. Kulit saya perlahan demi perlahan nampak kecerahannya. Bintik hitam juga sudah berkurangan.

“Dalam hati saya sendiri tertanya mukjizat apa yang ada dalam produk ini sampai begitu hebat sekali kesannya. Tak sangka dengan kos minimun, saya boleh lihat kesan dalam masa singkat,” katanya

Tambah Sharon lagi selepas meneliti kandungan yang digunakan dalam produk Saapuu ternyata ia satu pelaburan berbaloi

“Produk SaaPuu mengandungi pelbagai bahan organik yang sememangnya terbukti untuk kebaikan kulit. Contohnya seperti minyak argan, madu, daun sirih, daun pegaga, curcumin, daun gelenggang dan aloe vera.

“Tambahan pula, paling utama dan meyakinkan saya kerana produk ini mendapat kelulusan daripada Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM). Jadi memang diakui produk ini selamat untuk dipakai tanpa rasa was-was.

“Hati saya kini meloncat kegembiraan apabila ‘penderitaan’ masalah kulit saya akhirnya selesai begitu sahaja selepas menggunakan produk berkenaan. Kini saya boleh menjalani hidup dan bekerja dengan lebih berkeyakinan,” katanya tersenyum.

Probiotics For Pregnancy – Things You Should Know

I’m 36 going on 37. I gave birth really young and now my only son is already 16 years old. Family and friends alike are always asking me; when am I going to get pregnant and expand my little family? Don’t I want a bigger family? Don’t I want a baby daughter to dote on?

Well, feeling miffed on the questions that I considered as an invasion of privacy aside, I have to say that pregnancy is a huge thing for me, and it’s not something I’d consider lightly. I didn’t enjoy much of my pregnancy when I was pregnant with my son. I felt sick all the time, walks around like a zombie throughout the entire pregnancy and worst, I can barely keep anything that I eat down, no matter what I do. Everything seems to disagree with me. I was so physically worn and emotionally distressed during my pregnancy. My conditions only improved towards the end of the pregnancy, so excuse me if I blatantly tell you that I don’t feel like going through a repeated experience just so that I can hold a bundle of joy in my arms.

Anyway, speaking of pregnancy, one of my friends is pregnant and we happened to catch up via Google Meet. You know how it’s like now. My friends and I missed each other very much. We used to go for hi-teas every other weekend but since we’re still fighting the pandemic now, we called each other via Google meet often to catch up. And catch up we did. We spoke about pregnancy woes and she was sharing about how terrible her pregnancy is as well. Apart from the regular morning sickness, she’s also suffering from poor digestion, fatigue, bloating, loose stools and anemia, but her condition slowly improves as she changed her diet to light &easy to digest food and taking probiotics. She mentioned that her doctor said that all her problems actually point to a weak gut and that’s what actually ails most pregnant women, and prescribe some light diet for her to follow alongside with probiotics to help her with her symptoms.

I listened intently when she was sharing her experience and I was taken aback a little. I suffered the same thing she did during my pregnancy; poor digestion, fatigue, bloating, loose stools and anemia, and I wondered if I had the same problems and I could have improved my situation back then by taking care of my gut? You see, the gut is part of the digesting system and is a vital organ in the body that absorbs all the nutrients that we eat and expels it as feces. If this organ is unhealthy, it will definitely affect our entire bodily system.

And so, I did some Googling and discovered that taking care of the gut, especially during pregnancy is really important. It helps to dispel unnecessary pregnancy discomfort such as poor digestion, fatigue, bloating and helps

Apart from practicing light exercises and healthy diet, one way to take care of the gut’s health during pregnancy is to take probiotics as probiotics good for pregnancy. Not familiar with the term probiotics? Simply put, probiotics are made of good live bacteria and it naturally lives in your body. Yes. Generally, bacteria are portrayed as a villain and something bad. But this is not true. Not all bacteria are bad. You actually have good bacteria in your body too, and they’re working behind the scene to keep you healthy. For example, if you have an infection or gets sick, that means there are a lot of bad bacteria is attacking your system. This is when the good bacteria in your body will counter-attack to keep your system in balance and help you get better. Basically, the role of good bacteria in your body helps to eliminate the bad bacteria and keep your body in a good condition. One way to add good bacteria is by consuming probiotics supplements.

There are plenty of probiotics in the market but here’s one that’s great for pregnant ladies; Yourgutt.

YourGutt is a fermented rice bran powder that’s beneficial for overall gut health, and it is the first in Malaysia and Asia to have the complete-biotics, the prebiotic, probiotic, and postbiotics.

The best part? YourGutt not only taste good, but it’s practically allergent-free, made from natural, ingredients and is vegan and vegetarian friendly.

So ladies, whether you are pregnant or not, your gut health matters, as it helps your entire bodily system runs healthily. If you haven’t included any probiotics in your diet or your family’s diet, you might want to look into this to improve your lifestyle and health in whole. I regret not discovering this earlier. It could have save me alot from unnecessary ailments.
