Unlike the previous shows- there was only one commercial exhibit which promotes hybrid papayas, celosia, vinca, marigold and seedlings for sale near the center of the bazaar.

Other Plant Shows in Metro Manila

We saw some familiar faces and new people in the industry, This is the fourth garden show within Metro Manila – Horti Filipina 2021 held at the Bonifacio High Street from February 4 to 14, 2021– which drew few people due to pandemic and restrictions in Bonifacio Global City ( BGC),Taguig. Arid and Aroid Colors Garden show held from February 6 to 16, 2021 at Robinson’s Magnolia drew a lot of plantitos, plantitas, batang maghahalaman and even new collectors because of the “BIG Scam Sale” last February 13, 2021.

Another plant show dubbed ” “Plant Fest” at SM Megamall, Mandaluyong from February 15 to February 26, 2021.

The orchid and garden bazaar of the Philippine Orchid Society is almost 20 days or three weeks!This will offset the lack of landscape exhibit, orchid and plant competition. While a live talk held last weekend about basic orchid culture was shown on the offical FB page of the Philippine Orchid Society.

We think it was quite long for an orchid and garden bazaar,at least customers will have a luxury to canvass plant prices from other bazaars and plant centers in other parts of Metro Manila.

Out of the four plant shows, The Arid and Aroids Colors Garden Show really stand-out and a blockbuster hit! We still have to wait for the last few days of the “Plant Fest” in SM and 1 week of the 75th Annual Orchid Bazaar show and see the results.

It was good that in all of the show that i have attended, there were no entrance fees. The most comfortable ones were at Robinson’s Magnolia and SM Megamall. The air-condition was just right with nice people around.

With the relaxation of the quarantine protocols in the coming few months, visitors and plant enthusiasts wanted to view better and quality exhibits in mid-year shows.

6 Benefits of Microneedling at Skinfitness Center

Skinfitness Center had been in business for about a decade. Unknown to many, there are some high profile celebrity clienteles, office employees of nearby Ortigas business district among others.

Here are the 6 Benefits of Microneedling  

1.) Microneedling or referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a process that involves needles to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin, creating pseudo wounds that prompted our own system to produce the necessary collagen and elastin for the repair of the new “wound” thereby improving the scar. This is a break through revolutionary therapy which is popular with celebrities, and is available at the center.

2.) Painless Technique–  Generous amount of topical anesthesia is applied in the skin thereby making the procedure tolerable and painless.

3.) Youthful look – Treatment introduced fine needles to the skin to create microscopic channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulates production of new collagen and elastin which generates new skin cells. The skin then becomes thicker, plumper and more youthful. Atrophic facial scars (chicken pox mark and reducing wrinkles ).

4.) Up to 1,000 times more effective than conventional treatment– Serums that are applied to the skin are up to 1,000 times more absorbed because of the “tiny” holes created by microneedling.

5.) Smoothing of scars and reducing stretch marks – As a result of the treatment, the skin thickness being increased up to 80% smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks enlarge pores, or pitting acne / chicken pox marks and reducing wrinkles

6.) Affordable – Compared to using other treatments and going to other derm clinic, Skinfitness Center offers affordable package.

Note: People who undergo the procedure can expect some redness depending on the individual response. Some overnight but some can last up to couple days post procedure as a result of all the skin stimulation, but it subsides quickly as the healing begins and the results of a more glowing skin start to show.
