Avon’s fight against breast cancer enters its 30th year with the #NormalForMe campaign

In a woman’s lifetime, breast cancer will affect 1 in 8 of them. In 2019, Filipina women are even more at risk because the Philippines is thought to have the ninth-highest global prevalence of the disease and the Philippines has the highest prevalence of the disease in Asia. Breast cancer continued to rank among the top 2 most common among Filipino women the following year, with the majority of cases being discovered at an advanced stage.

Low health literacy and gendered sociocultural factors, such as the absence of formalized national screening programs, are the most likely causes of this alarming prevalence. Fortunately, patients have a 90% chance of survival because to early recognition of symptoms and prompt treatment and medicines.

This is why every year during October, the world observes Breast Cancer Awareness Month to encourage more people to know more about this indiscriminate disease and be more proactive in regular self-checks that can help detect preliminary symptoms.

Global beauty brand Avon has been one of the most prominent brands who supports this cause, now marking three decades of being at the forefront on the fight against the disease since launching the Breast Cancer Crusade in UK in 1992.

Through the support of over five million Representatives worldwide, associates, customers and the Avon Foundation for Women, the beauty brand has donated more than US$947 million to breast cancer-related causes, educated over 180 million people about the disease, and funded screenings for approximately 16.6 million women over the last three decades.


This year, Avon continues this worthy cause with a global campaign encouraging everyone to discover what’s #NormalForMe by asking themselves: what three words best describe their boobs?

The campaign invites women to know their normal by coming up with three words according to how their breasts usually look and feel and share those three words and the initiative to inspire others to also regularly check themselves. Knowing one’s normal can prevent potentially life-threatening changes that can lead to Breast Cancer.

In partnership with Philippine Cancer Society and to make sure this advocacy is internally practiced, Avon encourages their local Avon Representatives to avail the free clinical breast examinations at select branches—October 17 at Taft/San Fernando, October 21 at Shaw Blvd and Batangas, and October 31 at Cebu and Davao. Associates are also motivated to get free breast checkups at the Avon Head Office at Makati on October 19 and 20.

Finally, Avon extends this advocacy to a larger network and invites everyone to pink it up by supporting products and services from Avon and partner brands to raise awareness and raise funds on behalf of the Philippine Cancer Society.

Save lives by shopping dedicated fundraising products like the Self-Check Watch, Mariposa 2-in-1 Accessory Giftset, Avon Empower Non-Wire Mastectomy Bra, and the Avon Empower Bra Prosthesis. Purchase these items via or contact an Avon Representative.

The public may also donate any amount directly via GCash by scanning the QR.

Interested parties can also participate in the fundraiser through various partners:

“For the last 30 years, we’ve committed to this cause to raise funds and awareness to help more women to join the initiative to battle Breast Cancer not just for themselves, but also for their loved ones,” shares Avon Head of Communications for Philippines & APAC, Marion Limlengco. “This is why we’ll always push for everyone to know the signs, know the risks, and know how to take action because early detection will help save lives.”

The Philippine Cancer Society, Avon’s partner charity, will receive all proceeds and will also provide consultation services should you find a lump or require more assistance when screening your breasts and pecs.

Scarcity of sugar? Use Stevia to sweeten your life!

For the past few months, there has been a shortage of sugar throughout the nation, driving up sugar prices. The increase in price of this household item has a negative impact on the purchasing power of Filipinos, who already struggle to keep up with inflation. Given that most foods contain sugar as a primary element, many people have fought to make their lives and food sweeter.

Fortunately, there is a nutritious substitute that might help Filipinos overcome their sugar problems. The leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant are used to make stevia, a natural sweetener. Despite having zero calories and being 300 times sweeter than sugar, it does not raise blood sugar levels. Because it has no aftertaste or potential health hazards, it is preferable than chemical-based artificial sweeteners.

With the help of this magical plant, you may enrich food while cooking, sweeten hot and cold beverages guilt-free, and bake. The beautiful thing about Stevia is that it naturally sweetens food and beverages, unlike sugar, which has been linked to diabetes and obesity. Additionally, Stevia is regarded as nonglycemic, which means it has no impact on blood pressure levels.

Given these health benefits, swapping Stevia with refined sugar can be a complete game changer for people who want to make healthier food and beverage choices and maintain a healthy weight range.

Understanding Stevia’s potential to address Filipinos’ sugary dilemma, Glorious Industrial & Development Corporation (GIDC), also known as the Stevia Company, launched a lineup of naturally-sweetened and healthy beverages. GIDC, the Stevia Company’s line-up of products under its Glorious brand, includes the Glorious 3in1 Premium Coffee and Glorious Iced Tea Mixes and the Sweet & Fit Stevia Tea.

“We understand how important sweetness is to Filipinos’ taste palette,” said Ms. Au De Leon, president, and CEO of GIDC, The Stevia Company. “By making Glorious available nationwide, we want to empower more Filipinos to discover a healthier way to make their lives sweeter.”

The company’s latest products are not only good for one’s body, but they taste great too. Hence, people don’t need to sacrifice flavor to care for their health. All Glorious beverages are sweetened with Stevia, and every teaspoon of Stevia is equivalent to three teaspoons of refined sugar.

Glorious Premium 3in1 Coffee Mix is a delicious coffee blend sweetened with Sweet & Fit Stevia. It is recommended for people with sugar-related concerns, weight watchers, and other health-conscious individuals. Sweet & Fit Stevia has zero calories, zero fat, zero sodium, zero carbohydrates, and zero cholesterol.

With Glorious Iced Tea Mixes, people who want to limit their intake of sugar may now make their favorite fruit teas and lives sweeter. Red Berries, Lemon, and Cucumber are the three flavors offered for this product. For a healthy little pick-me-up, Sweet & Fit Stevia Tea can be combined with non-dairy milk or fresh fruits to make different hot or cold beverages.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Series offers three strategies to keep healthy

The saying “health is wealth” has undoubtedly appeared in everyone’s lives multiple times. However corny it may sound, the message is still quite strong, especially in this day and age. It is a proven truth that adopting a healthy lifestyle has numerous long-term physiological, mental, and emotional advantages. And if the pandemic has taught anyone anything, it is that we must put our health first right away.

It can take a lot of effort to stop bad behaviors and adopt good ones. Maintaining an active lifestyle can, however, be made a little easier with a dependable smart device that is simple to use and attractive. Having a specialized daily wellness companion pays off these days. And for just this reason, Samsung’s smartest and toughest watches to date—the Galaxy Watch5 Series—will appeal to fitness aficionados and wellness enthusiasts.

With the Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro’s updated and upgraded features, it’s easy and fun to start living healthy. Here are some ways the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Series makes it easy to stay healthy daily:

  1. Define health goals with its Advance BioActive Sensor

The Galaxy Watch5 Series is equipped with Samsung’s unique BioActive Sensor that monitors holistic health metrics such as body fat percentage, muscle mass, heart rate and rhythm, and blood oxygen levels. Based on the data it collects, the smartwatch acts like a personal trainer as it gives personalized tips and insights to help develop healthier habits.

Users set themselves up for success by identifying overall health goals and milestones with the smartwatch’s three powerful health sensors: Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis Sensor (BIA), Electric Heart Signal, and Optical Heart Rate Sensor.

  1. Exercise regularly and track progress

There are many things that can stop a person from working out, especially in the beginning. Exhaustion and laziness can make it absolutely difficult to commit to a fitness routine and fight the urge to just lie down and rest.

With the Galaxy Watch5 Series’ Fitness Tracker, there’s always a form of exercise that fits different types of schedules and lifestyles. It can track over 90 workouts, including walking, running, elliptical, rowing, swimming, and dynamic high-movement activities. When you have a smartwatch that shows and monitors your steps, calorie intake, and routine completion, it’s easy to commit to being active, one goal at a time.

  1. Understand sleeping patterns and reset the body’s circadian rhythm

A properly-aligned circadian rhythm affects the body’s physical performance and cardiovascular activity. Having a healthy sleep-wake schedule allows people to function at their best, which consequently promotes positive mental well-being.

Luckily, the Galaxy Watch5 Series is now powered by an upgraded Sleep Tracking feature. It becomes a 24-hour health guard, helping people plan their bedtime, detect snoring, and track sleep stages. It also has eight animal sleep symbols that represent different sleep types. This helps people better understand patterns and make necessary behavioral changes.

Defining health milestones and achieving them is more satisfying with a smartwatch that literally knows every step taken towards wellness. That it carries a sophisticated design and is built with essential functional features is just a bonus.

All models of the Galaxy Watch5 Series boast a double titanium casing, a powerful Exynos W920 processor, and come with 16GB of storage. It also carries a long-lasting and fast-charging battery of up to 590mAh. Other features include compatibility with any 8.0 Android phone or higher, Wi-Fi support, and Bluetooth 5.2.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Series is now available to be everyone’s fitness companion at the following prices and colors:

What’s more, with every purchase of the Galaxy Watch5 or the Galaxy Watch5 Pro. Customers are entitled to 50% off on the latest Galaxy Buds2 Pro until October 31. Samsung is also offering discounts of up to 30% off on the Galaxy Watch5 Series when purchased with participating Samsung Galaxy products including the latest Galaxy Z Fold4 or Galaxy Z Flip4 as part of its cross-sell promotions.
