Licealiz Rolls Out Nationwide Kilusang Kontra Kuto Year 3

As pediculosis capitis or head lice infestation continues to be a concern in public schools in the Philippines, Lamoiyan Corporation's Licealiz has led the nationwide rollout of Kilusang Kontra Kuto or KKK.

As a part of the mission to create a kuto-free Philippines, Kilusang Kontra Kuto, a coalition of head lice prevention experts and advocates led by Lamoiyan Corporation's Licealiz, the Department of Education or DepEd, UP Manila College of Public Health, Mommy Bloggers Philippines, and Drugstores Association of the Philippines, was created. Now on its third year, they want to make its impact bigger and its reach wider in order to eliminate kuto by educating the public about the problem. They will be visiting different schools in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

According to a study conducted by the Department of Education (DepEd) and the University of the Philippines, head lice infestation is still considered as the second most common health problem in public schools in the Philippines next to tooth decay. While it may not be a fatal condition, attention must still be given to this persistent condition which commonly found in school children.

Here are some problems that head lice can cause if left untreated:

It can cause other serious infections.

The surface of our skin is filled with different kinds of bacteria. According to Dr. Arlene Bertuso from University of the Philippines Manila College of Public Health, while lice itself can't cause infections, "severe scratching cause by allergic reactions to the insects' saliva can cause the scalp to break, therefore increasing the chance of a secondary bacterial infection".

It can decrease self-confidence in a child and the parents.

Head lice or kuto often has a negative connotation due to its association with poor hygiene and low social status, which can cause a child to lose confidence, especially around his or her peers. However, the child isn't the only one affected as the parents can also experience loss of confidence. Parents whose child has been infected with head lice feel embarrassed since they feel like they exhibited poor parenting by letting their child get head lice infestation.

It decreases academic or work productivity.

Itchiness and inflammation are effects from the bites of head lice. The irritation caused by the bites of the head lice can disrupt concentration in school or at work, hence affecting productivity. It can also cause loss of sleep, which can then lead to irritability, short attention span and lack of focus. In addition to that,  "it dramatically affects the school performance of children because of the discomfort and social stigma it causes," as stated in the study by DepEd and the University of the Philippines.

Misinformation can cause more damage.

Myths and superstitions are already ingrained in Filipino culture and society. Kuto is surrounded by several of these myths and misconceptions that can be harmful to the infested such as the use of mayonnaise or kerosene and wrapping the child's head with plastic overnight. Contrary to popuplar belief, lice can also be acquired at any age and by any gender. Incorrect information like these can lead to untreated head lice, which can spread quickly to the whole family or to the whole class simply through physical contact with one infested person.

Head lice is often overlooked or disregarded despite its many negative impacts, but this problem can be solved with correct information and appropriate control methods. Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo is effective solution to eliminate and prevent head lice.

One Lovely Afternoon in Amaya View


Sharing to you the beautiful scenery of Cagayan de Oro City. This was taken sometime in August this year at Amaya View, Sierra del Oro. They have the best sunset in there and if you come earlier, you might want to try paragliding ;-)

The picture was taken from my iPhone6s but it did not justify the very beautiful view that I've seen that day. I want to go back in there and bring my other camera and try to capture some scenic views.

This was my 3rd time to visit the place and still got so amazed by the beauty of nature. The place is just a 15-minute ride from (my) home or perhaps, around 20-30 minutes ride from the city proper.

There are lots of activities to do in case you want to relax and unwind at Amaya View. I hope to go there again soon to take a dip at the pool or perhaps rock-climbing (if I still have the guts) and kids can play at the recreation area.

Mark Your Calendars and Head to Hey Sugar on November 27!


You know how they say that women have incredibly high pain thresholds? That's a fact. Women see past the challenge of childbirth and see the joy in it. They wear high heels willingly, or slip into a pair of Spanx if they must. They even regularly tear hair off their skin as part of their daily grooming routine.

While there's not much women can do about pinched feet and blisters - waxing doesn't have to be as painful as you imagine. It's a matter of knowing where to go and what waxing method to choose.

So in the spirit of this year's National Hair Free Day, Hey Sugar is letting you in on a secret - sugar waxing is a nearly pain-free way of dealing with unwanted hair.

Happy me after I availed Leg Velvet (half-leg/hot)
Take Hey Sugar's sugaring process for example. Known for only using gentle, all-natural ingredients, Hey Sugar takes you through the process of waxing without causing anxiety, regardless if you've been doing this for years or you're new to the whole thing.

Their method is swift but efficient. It begins by an expert aesthetician pouring the sugar wax on the area, so its rich, delicious warmth soaks into your skin. This allows the mixture to really seep into your pores and get a good grip on hair follicles, straight from the roots, with the added bonus of moisturizing and exfoliating your skin. They work in small, manageable sections and pres on the skin gently as they lift the cooled wax, efficiently removing even the shortest hairs from its roots. After that, you emerge from the salon smooth, exfoliated, moisturized, and hair-free.


The experience is a stark difference from DIY creams and at-home waxing kits - which are not only messy, but are as painful as you probably imagine waxing to be.

Leading up to National Hair Free Day, Hey Sugar will also be offering an incredible pampering treat. Visit your nearest Hey Sugar branch on November 27 from 11AM to 3PM and you can indulge in their free eyebrow threading and underarm waxing services.

With that said, do you really have to wonder if you should #SwitchtoHeySugar?
