For years now, stem cells have been making headlines in both the medical and health industries and for good reasons. An undifferentiated (unspecialized) type of cell that has the ability to reproduce and turn into any other cell, stem cells play a key role in the development and rejuvenation of tissues and the production of new cells.
More recently, stem cells have emerged as a buzz phrase in the cosmetic industry with celebrities like Lorna Tolentino and Lolit Solis undergoing the treatment. The phrase has also cropped up on several product and treatment names and ingredients lists, as more and more cosmetic companies lay claim of using the technology. According to claims, stem cells (human or plant) are ideal for anti-aging skincare due to its ability to stimulate the skin to grow new, younger cells and reverse the signs of aging. However, despite all the hype, a majority of the public is still apprehensive to try products that claim to contain stem cells, doubting its ability to deliver its big promise.
Does it really work?
According to a study done by a biochemistry laboratory in Switzerland, stem cells derived from one specific apple specie does. Malus Domestica, a rare apple variety rich in proteins, long-living cells and phytonutrients (nutrients derived from plant materials that are necessary for sustaining human life), contain properties that have the ability to significantly decrease wrinkle depth, delay senescence (cell aging), repair DNA, and protect the skin against oxidative stress and UV damage
In general, all stem cells contain factors that function to preserve the capacity of other cells to repair itself. However, in contrast to human and animal, plant stem cells have the ability to regenerate new organs (roots, leaves, flowers, etc) or even the entire plant. “Human stem cells may have more potent effects, but all plant cells can dedifferentiate and become a stem cell. This property makes them ideal for cosmetic purposes,” explains Dr. Jennifer Camat, a professional aesthetic doctor at Flawless.
Recognizing the great potential of stem cell technology, the country’s preferred clinic for face, body and aesthetic services, Flawless partnered with a local industry leader to develop the country’s first ever mass-marketed skincare line with plant stem cells. Dubbed “superfood for the skin,” Flawless’ Stem Cell Line is the epitome of skin nutrition.
“We are very pleased to introduce everyone our Stem Cell Line,” says Rubby Sy, CEO of Flawless. “This new range of products allowed us to mark several milestones not just for Flawless but for the local beauty industry. Once again, we have taken something that, for the longest time, has remained exclusive to celebrities and other influential people and made it affordable for the regular Juan and Juana.”
Flawless’ Stem Cell Line’s innovative formulation utilizes plant stem cell technology to revive the skin’s youthful appearance by protecting it against oxidative stress and boosting the skin’s repair and rejuvenation systems.
Sy adds that the new line is not just for people with maturing skin. Underscoring Flawless’ commitment to provide world-class skincare solutions for everyone, it’s also an ideal preventive care for people exposed to various aging factors.
Multimedia celebrity and gay rights advocate, Divine Lee, believes in the power of stem cells and is happy to have been chosen as the ambassador for Flawless’ Stem Cell product line.
“Times really have changed. No thanks to free radicals that are present in almost every thing around us —from the food we eat to the air we breathe—people today age so much faster. This is especially true for people who like to spend late nights partying or spend too much time in front of the monitor. Various studies have proven time and again the harmful effects such activities have on our skin.”
From the faintest hint of lines caused by too much partying, to dry and dull skin due to dehydration and dark spots and uneven skin tone from unprotected sun exposure, Flawless’ Stem Cell Line promises to solve all these and more by providing your skin with the right amount of nutrition and protection.

A demo version of the song I wrote for Benilde’s own Brother Vic for his birthday/50th anniversary as a Benildean brother. This is based on his favorite verse, Micah 6:8 — “This is what Yahweh asks of you, only this: to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God”.
They gave me the “assignment” on a Friday and the song had to be done by Tuesday! It was a rather challenging task, but it was fun :) I’m beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to do something like this.
Writing this helped me realize a lot of things, and I hope listening to it will do just as much for you.
She has to be HOT and have generic brown rectangular eyebrows.. LOLJK.. But I’d be lying if I said looks didn’t count for anything. By “looks”, however, I am not referring to the common conception of beauty that media has recently been trying to perpetuate (and by media I mean Tumblr and Rogue magazine). There is more to a female’s physical beauty than skinny legs and a protruding collar-bone (although if you do have skinny legs and a protruding collar-bone there is absolutely nothing wrong with that), I personally tend to look for the unique physical details that individualizes a lady; a rebellious dimple hiding below the corner of her lip perhaps, or even a slight double chin can be endearingly charming.
2. I LOL YOU
Nothing is more attractive than a girl with a good sense of humor. She doesn’t have to be a stand-up comedienne or crack 9gag references all the time, it’s nice enough if she’s just down to share a good laugh with you. Funny girls are awesome. (except Zooey Dechanel. I will never forgive her for what she did in 500 days of Summer. F*ck you Summer!!! huhuhuhuu)
She has to be your friend on top of being your lover.
“There’s a science to staying in love, which revolves around educating people that at the heart of love is intimacy and friendship, not passion and drama.”
I read that in an Internet article on science experiments about falling in love. It makes a lot of sense, because at the end of the day when the butterflies stop fluttering in your stomach, you’d want to find yourself with someone who you enjoy kicking it with.. Even when you’re not like.. making out and stuff..
4. RAK (remix)
Random Acts of Kindness. Kindness and a good heart are real deal sealers. Not self-righteousness though… that’s just whack. When she does the right thing, she does it because it’s the right thing not just so she can tweet about it. She’s got to have her heart in the right place.
5. SWEAT PANTS, HAIR TIED, CHILLIN’ WITH NO MAKE-UP ON
Don’t get me wrong though, there’s nothing bad about girls wearing make-up or being fashionable (although I don’t dig that whole animal print sh*t. This is not the jungle. You don’t have to pretend to be a zebra.)
The foregoing notwithstanding, I am personally partial with girls dressing down and wearing minimal to no make-up. Subtlety is sexy.
Ladies who are comfortable in their own skin are very attractive. They don’t try too hard to impress because they already know their worth. Having said that, however, when a girl is a little bit too into herself… that kind of breaks the deal.
7. SAUSAGE MCMUFFIN WITH EGG #Hashbrown
She should be someone you could have breakfast with. Jah feel?
Homegirl has got to be Down To Cuddle. Why? Cause.. I dunno.. I just like to cuddle.. ahihihihi :”>
9 . SOMETHING INFINITELY INTERESTING
Ladies who have interests are interesting. She has to be into something, anything. Be it literature, film, music, ping-pong or whatever. This means she has the ability to care about something other than herself and/or her iPhone. Also, her interests make for great topics of conversation. People with no interests usually have nothing worthwhile to say. It sucks being stuck with a girl with the conversational skills of a potato.
“what’s up?” he asks the potato. The potato replied with nothing but a long and merciless silence.
10. SHE GETS ALONG WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY
It’s always nice if a girl can hang with your crew and your fam. These are the most important people in your life. If you want her in your life she has to get along with them.
If she values the same things that you do then that should seal the deal. It’s good if the things that are important to you are also important to her and vice-versa.
12. ALL YOU NEED IS…
In the end, the real deal sealer is love. Because no matter who she is or what she does, if she’s got your love it’s game over for you player. The Beatles knew what was up when they said, “All you need is love” because really—— love is all you need.
