Truly Flawless Skin at RCC Amazing Touch

It has been probably six years since I last visited an RCC Amazing Touch clinic.  Believe it or not I have acquired some skin disorders, other than pimples and wrinkles.  Pimples can be easily ruled out if managed properly, wrinkles however is a different issue in itself.  The other problem I have on my skin is the appearance of mini bumps that the derma specialists does not like to handle, unless be electrically cauterized.  I'm not talking about warts, but the ones I have are the pesky little white spots which had clustered under my eye bags, some above m cheeks and on the sides of my nose.
I used to be annoyed and might I mention that I'm ashamed of sharing this to you.  But I adhered to the saying that a problem shared is a problem solved.  I used to have them in clusters and no amount of make-up have hid them and frequent visits to the facial center didn't help as well.

Some skin care practitioners call these tiny dots syringoma (\sir-iŋ-ˈgō-mə\) while other would refer to it as milia,  

Syringomas are benign micro tumors that form in the ducts of the sweat glands.  For unknown reasons, they are formed when there is an overgrowth of cells within a sweat gland duct. The duct becomes enlarged by and clogged with the extra cells, forming a hard round bump about one to three millimeters in diameter.  What is seen on the upper layer of the skin is just the "tip of the iceberg" as the major problem lies underneath.

When no one told me about this condition, I would often go to different derma clinics to have them removed or explain why I had them, all they say is that it's inhereted and no matter how many times you have it removed it's not going away.  As in, there isn't any cure for that.  Wahh!

Milia, on the other hand, occurs when surface-level skin cells are not sloughed off and so the cells clog the skin, leading to these cysts.   Milia seeds are white or yellowish bumps and are also sometimes called oil seeds, these are usually small and hard. Sometimes, if a milia seed is new, it can be soft, and appear as though it is a pimple without an opening. 

Okay, so I had them both, milia on the ridges of my nose and syringoma under my eyes.  I always asked my derma to remove the milias when I had facials, and it is very painful.  

But you might be wondering, why it doesn't seem noticeable on my face.  Well, I used to have them, as I have been telling you, and now a few have sprouted again.  But I am glad to have found the best and the only way you can remove either milia or syringoma plus this is a quick and painless process.

My secret is RCC Amazing Touch's herbal cautery.  Well it's not actually a secret anymore, being established in 1997, many have trusted them for over 18 years already.  Not only have they treated cases like mine, they have made many happy by freeing them of warts, skin tags, moles, xanthelasma and even cancers.

All thanks to the father of herbal cautery. inventor of RCC Amazing touch creams, Rolando C. Dela Cruz. I was surprised to hear a different and amusing side to how Mr. Dela Cruz discovered the treatment accidentally later on gave him additional income.
He was first a barber before becoming a world-renowned inventor of several herbal cautery creams. Trying to get more customers and earning enough as a barber so he can send himself through college, he would go extra miles to win his customers, making them come back by treating their warts and moles with oil from cashew nuts for free.  This act garnered him an opportunity that would win him several awards both here and abroad.

His herbal cautery invention being a world-class product have gave way for him to represent the Philippines i several coveted invention expositions and competitions in Germany, Russia, Great Britain and USA ad neighboring Asian countries.  With all the Gold medals and honors he have won, the Obelisk Award is the one they would really boast off, proving the products' excellence.

But the thing that is really remarkable is being able to assist many skin cancer patients.  In fact, when the Skin and Cancer Foundation, Inc. made a study in partnership with PGH, 50% of the patients who have undergone treatment using RCC's herbal cautery creams got cured.  Which means that the products' efficiency and success rate is exceptional.

It just make me proud and happy to know that a fellow Filipino was behind it!

The desyringoma cream was the one used to remove my faulty skin issue.  I had the treatment 5 years ago at their SM Dasmarinas branch.  And just over a week ago, I had it again, this time at their SM North branch.  However, though it's recurring, it took me five years to even notice I had it again, while all along it had been the cause of my bane since I had my first baby.  The results were amazing!

The procedure 

Unlike electrocautery procedure to remove the said skin issues. herbal cautery leaves no scarring, the pain is relatively tolerable.  The product/procedure which is only P 3500 is way affordable that going to the derma and have an  electrocautery.  I remembered m mom paid over P 8000 to have hers removed at a facial clinic.  It is safe to use even near the areas in the eyes.

The procedure is quick, depends on how large the scale of your skin condition is.

Here, my friend Lariza, a blogger from Mom's World of Arts and Happiness is having her mole treated and eventually be removed.  It took her hours to decide to have it removed and it took them only 25 minutes to sanitize the mole and put the herbal cautery cream.

To completely see the result, the mole to fall off on itself, it would take 3 to 5 weeks and at least 30 days for the skin to take on its natural color, but it might take a few months for other people.

Here is my face after being treated, notice the swollen pinkish dots on the nose side and on the side of the cheek bone?  Those are just a few of them I had removed, I actually have bigger ones but decided not to have them removed yet as we will be hitting Mactan beach a few days after this.  Oh also, I had a few on my chest as well.

Now, after 10 days, here is my un-touched photo without  the pinhead scabs, but with the not so obvious pink and red marks from the treated parts.  There are still some dreaded wounds near my nose and above m cheeks, that I'm waiting to be healed though, and once the scabs dry out ad fell off, a new bumpless, scarless and flawless skin will resurface.

Thanks to Mother Earth for gifting us with cashew fruits where the oil Mr. Dela Cruz had derived his oil for the creams treating, nasty warts, moles, syringoma, milia and other skin disorders.  I love cashews, eating them and cooking with them, not only that they're yummy, they are healthy as well and with this world -class invention just put it a notch-higher.  It's indeed amazing and it's namesake says it best!

The Family's Bluewater Maribago Escapade

If you've clicked on this post you are one of three people: 1) someone who wants to know how to enjoy summer even with kids 2) a hater who wants to criticize me for bringing my kids on our wedding anniversary at this very romantic beach or  3) you are my mom (Thanks Mama, who is in Milan).

Well, yes, yet again we brought our kids with us to celebrate our bond of love, and we are on our 19th year.  Whew!  Believe me it wasn't all bed of roses and I'm no "Supermom" at all, as many would tell me.  Rearing four kids, a dog and a husband can easily burn one down, add to it some business on the side and the family's not so good medical condition. 

If you are one or two, I have news for you! Chances are you will definitely be taking my words on this.  Bhogs and I have ditched our plan to go out of the country to do something extra as a means to celebrate and welcome another beautiful year of togetherness.  Instead, he bought tickets ahead bound for Mactan, Cebu and I took it from there.  After experiencing Bluewater Sumilon without him and the kids, I have sincerely prayed that my next island tour in Cebu would be with them.

Eat. Cafe, Comfort Food, Tea, Coffee, and Wine Bar


Just like this new cafe, that I had recently visited and tried, I am about to write my simplest blog. not that I don't want to over sell them, which I would want to, but because of the fact that the whole sense of it should not really be complicated.

Well you see, my life also as it is, is simple just that I complicate things a tad bit more, or let's just say to elaborate on stuff like preparing a simple tuna sandwich or baking brownies.  By the way, will posting really soon my recent addition to my brilliant brownie inventions -Oatmeal Brownies.

By now the lights of the cafe are off and the guards would make sure that the doors of the elevator don't open at the Mezzanine floor.  While I'm still tucking heartily into a heap of Spicy Brownies which I took home from Eat. Cafe at this wee hour with a mug of Chamomile tea to combat the sugar and lull me to sleep.  Sure enough the brownies and some of the food I've tried at Eat made it hard for me to doze off easily.

Pan Pacific Hotel's Take on Fun Lounging with the Breath-taking Manila Bay Sunset View

Still in pristine condition after servicing clients for over 17 glory years in the hospitality business, Pan Pacific makes after work hours even more relaxing and fun.  Last Feb. 13, a preempt to Valentines day, my co-travel bloggers had a get together at the Sunset Lounge. It's Pan Pacific Hotel's new al fresco venue which was launched November of last year.

Let me describe that experience in 3 F words - field of vision, food and fun!

Nestled at the 7th floor, the open deck highlights an encompassing view of the surrounding Malate and of course the Manila Bay.  On the same floor is where you can find the pool and the venue hall for gatherings.

Hotel Review: Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar and Cafe Marivent

In about 3 days, we will be celebrating our wedding anniversary.  Before the year 2010, we never really spent a lot of time and money in commemorating our wedding anniversary.  We thiought that simple gifts for each other and greeting each other would be enough.  All that changed when my husband understood my needs as a woman and his wife.  I just praise God for making him the kindof husband that I have been praying for.  Well don't get me wrong, he did work his ass of to provide for the family however no such better investment were put to our marriage.

To make the long ang boring story short he made amends and proved to be very generous in lavishing me with love on our special day, the day God and the law made us one.

There was this particular celebration we shared some years ago that I have to say I have highly esteemed.  It was when he bought an overnight accommodation to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan.

Here are my articles on that:

Cayet's Cabin: A Balinese Resort to Cure One's Ailing Soul

What do you do when disappointment comes? 
Regrettably, picking oneself back up again is, easier said than done.  I know that it doesn't take any special talent to give up or lie down on the roadside of life and say, "I quit!" In fact, the road to chronic discouragement, hopelessness and despair often begins with an ordinary day that ends up piled high with simple disappointments. 

When it weighs on you like a rock, you can either let it press you down until you become discouraged, even devastated, or you can use it as a stepping-stone to better things.  If you ask me, it has not been a walk in the park, but I was blessed enough to have my God show me awesome things that get me through every time I'm faced with such difficulties in life and learning how to stay calm when He says "No."

There are quite a few inspiring means on how to adjust yourself to disappointments, what our family do is to pray for it, wait on it and while waiting, retreat from life's harshness by chasing hidden dwellings.

Swoon Over Resorts World Manila's Luck in Love Dining Finds
