WATER PEELING 
The Hydrodermabrasion skin treatments combine non-invasive exfoliation with the infusion of skin-specific topical solutions to improve and revitalize the skin. An advanced form of microdermabrasion, are unique because they do not use crystals. This safe and painless treatment is one of our most popular non-laser treatments. Like microdermabrasion.
Dermal infusion treatments are non-invasive mechanical exfoliation treatments without harmful chemicals that remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the treated area. They differ from traditional microdermabrasion treatments in that they use patented technology to perform the treatment with a system that gently exfoliates with different treatment tips while infusing topical solutions at the same time.


CARBON ACID INTRODUCTION
Exfugenation is the main effect of this function. It's a 3-in-1 treatment that exfoliates, infuses nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, and oxygenates the skin to increase blood flow to the area and absorb nutrients. Effects of machine: 1. Exfoliation of the outer layer of the skin. 2. Infusion of essential revitalizing nutrients. 3. Oxygenation of the skin generated from within.
This exclusive combination improves skin tone, evens texture and nourishes the complexion - giving you a balanced, healthy glow.



RF (RADIO FREQUENCY)
​It promotes the body waste to run by friction, activates skin environment, and makes your skin firm and elastic by protecting the production of collagen and elastin through vibrating the body water and fat cells. It uses radio frequency energy to heat skin with the purpose of reducing the appearance of fine lines and loose skin.

ELECTROPORATION​
This is the technique in which increases the permeability of the skin, allowing facial serum or essence to be fully introduced for effective absorption. Different topical vitamins or a combination of topicals can be used for each patient so the treatment can be customized to treat hyperpigmentation, acne, photo damage, and dehydration.

3 Easy Mouthwatering Recipe "Potatoes USA"

3 Easy Mouthwatering Recipe "Potatoes USA"



I’m excited to share this to you because a few weeks ago, I was able to attend a cooking demo initiated by Potatoes USA here in Cebu. It was indeed an afternoon full of learning and as a mom, I'm happy to find out how wonderfully nutritious and versatile potatoes are!

The seminar helped clarify misconceptions about potatoes. Remember how we often hear that eating potatoes leads to weight gain? Not true! It’s how we prepare them that jacks up the calories (too much oil, salt, fat, etc.). The potato has zero fat, sodium and cholesterol. It is also gluten-free.

The potato is a healthy vegetable that is packed with nutrients. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C (30% od DV). It also contains Potassium, Complex Carbohydrates, Protein and Fiber, among others. Perfect for our growing kids!

Availability of U.S. Potatoes


U.S. potatoes (frozen, fresh and dehydrated) are available in supermarkets and membership shopping branches nationwide. If you are interested in dehy, you may find them at baking supply stores.



 Fresh, Frozen and Dehy U.S. Potatoes

These are definitely made in the USA, and bear all the high standards associated with the phrase. U.S. potatoes are now available in the Philippines in three forms: fresh potatoes, frozen potatoes and dehydrated potatoes.

Fresh U.S. table stock potatoes are the pick of the crop, carefully sized and graded based on standards of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). There are over 100 different varieties of U.S. potatoes, but they are fit into seven different categories: russet, red, white, yellow, blue/purple, fingerling and petite. They differ in size, color, texture, and flavor for a large range of applications.

Russets are perhaps the most popular and are baked and topped with different ingredients. Reds are often used for salads. White potatoes have very thin skin, making them ideal for velvety mashed potatoes with the skin on. Yellow potatoes can come in small to large sizes and can taste slightly sweet after grilling. Blue/purples are fantastic for green salads as they have a nutty flavor. Fingerlings can be pan-fried or roasted and then quickly enjoyed in smallbites.

Frozen U.S. potatoes are premium potatoes quick-frozen in a state-of-the-art process that locks in flavor and nutrients. Every processor must meet stringent requirements of the USDA and U.S. Food and Drug Administration. With the U.S. being the only country in the world with mandatory USDA Grading Standards for frozen potatoes, the quality of the final frozen product is assured. This means that all the flavors, as well as vitamin C, potassium, iron, vitamin B6 and fiber have all been locked into frozen U.S. potatoes.

Frozen U.S. potatoes come in all shapes and sizes. Whole frozen potatoes can be oven-heated or microwaved after just a dash of seasoning. Frozen half-shell potatoes can quickly be filled up with cheeses, meats and vegetables to become a signature dish in any restaurant. Of course, the most popular types are frozen straight cut (for fries!), wedges (with skin on, please!), crinkle cut fries, lattice/basket weave cuts, curly fries, hash browns and taterdrums.

As another option, there are U.S. dehydrated potatoes which are perhaps the most compactly packaged of the lot. U.S. dehy can be quickly reconstituted into the best and fastest-made mashed potatoes ever, or as an ingredient in a wide array of dishes. You can use it for soups, stews and sauces, or to add texture and make breads and cakes fluffy. U.S. dehy has a great number of food applications ranging from pizza crust to native kakanin.

For more information on U.S. potatoes, visit the Potato Goodness website or  like and follow Potatoes USA-Philippines on Facebook.

Thank you so much for dropping by, I hope the recipes and information about U.S. potatoes will be able to help you in a little way, especially moms out there.
