Foot Care during the Monsoon Season

Most roads are wet and slick with mud during the monsoons. As such, rainy days requires you footwear that will give you good grip and will keep your feet as clean as possible.

A rubber footwear is usually worth investing on. Go for comfort rather than style or looks. Flip flops are your best bet. They dry easily since they are made of rubber. Moreover, they fit well and let your feet breathe. However, cheap brands could prove to be slippery on the roads and could splash water and mud on you.

Another option is spending on the old fashioned Rain boots. Rain shoes need not be boring.  Sturdy and coloful flip flops plus trendy rain boots can match your outfit.  I found that there is a wide variety of shoes for women available at ZALORA Philippines.
Whatever ideal footware you decide on to keep the your feet well covered for monsoons, choose sensible shoes. Avoid those that soak up water and those with poor grip that might cause you to slip on the moss and fungus covered roads.

The rainy season takes a particular toll on the feet. You cannot avoid a puddle of dirty water during this time of the year. The roads are full of dirty water and muck and these which enter foot wear. Trudging through floods and walking on filthy pavements Hence the rainy season takes a particular toll on the feet. and dirty feet are at risk of contracting infection often cause smelly feet and fungal infections. Give your feet more attention they deserve. Clean your feet and keep them hygienic to do away with bad odour, athlete's foot and fungal infection problems. The feet smells because bacteria feeds on damp feet. And during the wet season, these bacteria breed on dirty water, mud and other waterborne substances which we tread on.

Here are some guidelines to keep your feet healthy:

•Do get the wet shoes off as quickly as possible.
•Wash your feet with antiseptic as soon as you get home. Apply anti-fungal powder or cream.
•Dry your feet after cleaning it. Make sure to the area between the toes to avoid athlete's foot.
•Clean your footwear thoroughly before wearing them again. Use a dry cloth to remove any fungal growth that could have started to form when your sandals or shoes were left wet.
•Clean under your toenails and cut them regularly so that dirt won't accumulate in them.
•Make sure that your feet are completely dry before wearing new footwear or socks.

Since your feet bears the brunt of monsoon, don't forget to take extra care of them this rainy season. Keep your feets in top shape with a little bit of care. Do not wait for the condition to worsen before you get rid of those infectious bacteria.

Tugop Primary School benefits from L’Oréal's Citizen Day

In celebration of L’Oreal’s global “Citizen Day”, L'Oréal Philippines employees volunteered their time and talent to help beautify Tugop Primary School in Tanauan, Leyte last July 1. Super Typhoon Haiyan typhoon badly damage the the school in 2013, leaving it with only two working classrooms for 201 students. Before the year ends, Tugop Primary School will be the proud recipient of four new disaster-resilient classrooms to be donated by  L’Oreal organization in the Philippines.

Some 100 employee volunteers took part in painting benches and bookshelves plus preparing commodities for the students. The volunteers dedicated an afternoon to silk-screen T-shirts, putting in together learning materials, and in packing school bags with notebooks and school supplies.  That afternoon, the L'Oréal Philippines volunteers not only help pull together to provide material things the students need for learning, but they also brought hope for a better future back to the Tugop community which Typhoon Haiyan took away.

To close the day, all volunteers were asked to write their messages for the Tugop community on white tiles which will be sent along with other school materials when the school buildings are finally completed.

Citizen Day was first launched in 2010 with the aim of embodying L'Oréal's commitment to social responsibility during one day of collective voluntary action by its employees. The project was inspired by L'Oréal's Centenary celebration in 2009, when 100 community projects were launched worldwide. Since then, L'Oréal has committed to engaging its employees across the world once a year, every year.

Over 20 000 L’Oréal employees from 61 countries will participate in the Citizen Day held in their country. For one day L’Oréal employees will offer their time in over 400 community projects to fulfil the needs expressed by partner charities in five areas: environment, employment, helping people with disabilities, fight against exclusion and intergenerational outreach. to help communities and partner organizations.

L’Oréal employees from all the group’s entities (headquarters, research, plants, etc.) will participate in wellness workshops, landscaping activities, renovating community and housing centres, collecting clothes and food during the Citizen Day in all the countries involved.

"For the fifth year in a row, L’Oréal employees will be given an opportunity to become part of the group's citizen engagement programme. By joining forces, we will have a positive impact on the world around us," said Jean-Paul Agon, Chairman and CEO of L’Oréal. "Companies have a mission to create social and societal value."

Citizen Day is deployed on an international scale across 61 countries in June and July during one day or one week. This year Citizen Day will gather more than 20,000 employees: the kick-off was given by Russia on May 28, followed by China, Lebanon on May 30 and US on June 16, then in most European countries on July 1, as well as the Philippines.
