Ayala Foundation, NHCP launch ‘Magiting Face Mask’

A face mask bearing design elements inspired by the Philippine Flag became an
emblem of heroism and nationalism, especially during the time of COVID-19 Ayala Foundation, in partnership with the National Historical Commission of the
Philippines, officially launched on May 28 the Magiting Face Mask, which bears the
colors of the Philippine flag and the eight-rayed sun.
The face mask serves to honor our Filipino front-liners and essential workers who are
making a huge sacrifice for the nation to contain the spread of the pandemic.
The Magiting Face Mask was one of the key features of the commemoration of the
Battle of Alapan in Imus, Cavite. All guests, including the honor guards from the
Philippine Navy, wore the mask to commemorate the first unfurling of the Philippine Flag
in 1898.
The mask was also simultaneously launched at the First Digital Magiting Conference
organized by Ayala Foundation, the Department of Education, and the NHCP on the
same day. The conference, which gathered 200 Araling Panlipunan and Edukasyon sa
Pagpapakatao teachers from Region III, discussed teaching tools, methods, and other
resources to teach history and love of country, as the education system prepares for the
“new normal.” The conference was also viewed by over 1,500 participants through
Facebook Live.
“We hope to distribute the Magiting Face Mask to our front-liners and essential workers,
in recognition of their heroism during this time,” said Ruel Maranan, president of Ayala
Foundation. “Inaanyayahan rin namin kayo na patuloy na ipagmalaki ang ating bansa
kahit kailan, kahit saan. Sama-sama tayong maging magiting—sa isip, sa salita, at sa
Said NHCP Chairman Rene Escalante: “Sa taong ito, sa halip na mamigay ng maliliit na
watawat ang NHCP, sa tulong ng Ayala Foundation, ay mamimigay kami ng face mask
na may nakaguhit na simbolo ng ating bandila. Nawa’y pag nakita niyo ito, maalala nyo
ang kabayanihan ng mga rebolusyonaryong Filipino noong 1898 at ng mga COVID-19
front-liners natin sa kasalukuyang panahon.”

The Magiting Face Mask is part of Ayala Foundation’s Maging Magiting program, which
calls on Filipinos to express their love of country by giving our national symbols,
especially the Philippine flag, the respect they deserve.
In 2019 Ayala Foundation and its partners distributed Philippine flags to 10,000 public
schools, police stations, military camps, and other government offices across all 17
regions of the country.
This year, the foundation and its partners seek to distribute the face mask to community
front-liners and essential workers. The DepEd teachers who participated in the Digital
Magiting Conference were among the first to receive the masks.
Ayala Foundation President Ruel Maranan also officially turned over Magiting Face
Mask to the Philippine National Police, through Police Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar of the
Interagency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases.
Magiting Face Masks were also delivered to veterans of the Philippine military.
Receiving the masks from Maranan were Undersecretary Reynaldo Mapagu,
undersecretary for Civil, Veterans, and Reservists Affairs of the Department of National
Defense; Undersecretary Ernesto Carolina, administrator of the Philippine Veterans
Affairs Office; and Retired Commodore Salvador Esguerra, vice president for operations
of the Veterans Federation of the Philippines. Also present at the turnover was NHCP
executive director B. Gen. Restituto Aguilar.
At the turnover Usec. Mapagu thanked Ayala Foundation for the face masks, which, he
said, will help “protect our most important national resource—our citizens.”
For his part, Usec. Carolina noted the value of “continuing partnership between the
public and private sector” during this time.”

The quest for health and a natural look boosts sales of beauty products in Asia

Kantar, the world’s leading data, insights, and consulting company, announced that key drivers of growth in the Asia beauty market are natural ingredients that help consumers achieve good skin health, makeup that helps people obtain a natural look, and skincare products aimed at male shoppers. The Beauty Trends in Asia report highlights the key drivers behind the +8% growth in beauty product sales between 2017-18 compared to +4% for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) as a whole, while sales of personal care products in the region continue to outperform the total FMCG market.

“Asian people believe health is almost twice as important to their happiness as having more money,” says Ashley Kang, Head of Beauty Sector at Kantar Worldpanel division. “They see what they put on their skin as a health supplement – and this has changed the products and benefits they desire. They are extremely knowledgeable too, so brands must be transparent in their communications. The wellness trend is also encouraging certain emerging formats to thrive.”

Derma-care is becoming mainstream

New sophisticated formats in skincare and makeup that provide derma-care properties are rising in popularity. Derma brands have reached almost 45% penetration in Korea, a massive influx from just over 25% in 2017. Their second highest reach is Taiwan at 40%, an increase from 37.6% in 2017.

Derma products contain sophisticated ingredients that deliver a high level of efficacy in treating specific skin issues, such as eczema, but are increasingly used to solve more general problems, such as sensitive skin and pollution protection. With consumer brands launching their own ranges, derma-care is increasingly more mainstream, when it was once a niche segment and a domain of brands with a heritage in pharmaceuticals. Developments in retail and distribution are helping to increase the footprint of these products outside drugstores.

The natural look is driving the launch of new ranges and variants The most sought after look in Asia right now is a natural glow. Being well-hydrated is a prerequisite for this look, which has helped drive sales of serums that promise intense hydration. Penetration of serums is highest in Korea at 61%, rising from 58% in 2017. In China, penetration has increased from 18% in 2017 to nearly 26% today. 

This ‘effortless’ natural look can require significant work. The specific makeup products that help people achieve the right translucent effect include liquid foundation, BB creams, and primer/concealer – all of which are soaring in popularity. 

Kantar predicts that makeup that provides skincare or medicinal benefits will be a key growth area for the future. Various crossover products have already emerged between the skincare and makeup segments, such as toner cream that instantly brightens the skin. Positioning these products closer to skincare can be an effective strategy in China, where there remains a perception that the pigments in makeup could be harmful.

Men-only skincare is a major growth opportunity

The number of men using skincare products is also growing steadily across Asia, particularly in China, South Korea, and Thailand. They are buying in more categories as they add more steps to their beauty regime. However, most are still not buying products that have been created specifically for men. Products targeted at men contribute 10% of the total value sales for beauty in the region, but this segment is growing slower than unisex skincare brands. 

“Men in their twenties are most likely to buy men-only skincare products, but as they get older, they begin to use whatever products they find on the bathroom shelf,” continues Kang. “There is a substantial growth opportunity here for brands that can shift spend from unisex products to men-only variants, and prevent men from ‘lapsing’ as they get older, particularly for products promising oil control, anti-aging, whitening, and sunscreen benefits.”

Consumers crave products that are ‘just for me’

Shoppers in Asia believe that if a product is tailored to them, it will be more effective — and it also helps them to feel special. Customization is rapidly gaining momentum in both skincare and makeup. Computer-aided diagnosis enables skincare brands to assess an individual’s skin and formulate a product that provides the benefits specific to that individual. Makeup with customized colors, textures, and finishes is also growing in popularity.

The data and insights from this report come from the Worldpanel division’s Beauty Panel in Asia. This unique Beauty Panel tracks the usage and shopper behavior concerning beauty products.

Chinese New Year also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year is an important 15 day long festival widely celebrated in China and Malaysia. One of the traditions stemming from it, is the practice of buying new clothes. Chinese people believe that their ancestors and mythical gods will grant them fortune and good luck in the coming year. Red symbolizes luck, happiness and joy. It also represents summer season and the Southern Direction. Red also represents vitality, celebration and fertility in traditional Chinese color symbolism.

This act is symbolic as it signifies new beginnings and a good change for the new year. If you are a woman looking to honour this tradition, here are some guidelines for Chinese New Year clothes you can follow.

Tang Suit

Tang suit used to refer to dress from the Tang dynasty. If you’re a fan of Chinese martial arts, you might have seen this type of clothing in movies. Jackie Chan especially seems to like wearing them. The Tang suit was also the “dress code” for the 2001 APEC meeting.


The qipao entered mainstream Chinese culture during the Qing dynasty. But the modern styles we know today are very different from how it was originally. It began as a conservative dress with straight and loose cuts. Intricate designs were embroidered into the fabric. Through colonization, the qipao became westernized.


It is a modified version of Qing dynasty clothing and was formal wear during the 1900s. The cut for the sideways lapel symbolizes wealth and prosperity. The length of the cheongsam also represents status, since longer clothing is unsuitable for physical labor. In the Republican era, it was the clothing of educated scholars.


“Hanfu” translates literally to “clothing of the Han ethnicity.” It encompasses traditional clothing up until the Qing dynasty. This means too many types and variations to count.


Rhinestone Crystal Hair Accessory

In ancient times, men were not allowed to go without a headdress. Using chopsticks as hair accessories is a misconception. Instead, ornate wands are used. They usually taper off to an intricate design, inlaid with jewels, and trinkets hang off the end.

If you wear a hanfu, you can also add a pendant to the waistband.


Let’s start your morning in an active way, whether you’re exercising at home or at the gym you really should wear something that is fit for your healthy activities. Active wear or simply known as gym attire is widely worn by nowadays. It is because eating healthy plus exercising is a good way to live a healthy lifestyle. So here are the key necessities for an active wardrobe from Uniqlo.
