With the toxic atmosphere in the city, every woman would just want to go away for a while, take a step back to reflect and of course, get some good old pampering.
And select media guests, including this writer, were whisked away for a whole day of rest and rejuvenation courtesy of Snailwhite Gold recently at The Farm at San Benito in Batangas. The event also launched the Snailwhite Gold moisturizer.
Courtesy of Alive! Vegan Restaurant, participants were treated to a three-course lunch composed of fresh, locally-grown and harvested ingredients from The Farm at San Benito. The vegan lunch menu was interesting as it listed not only the courses but also the corresponding calorie counts.
Soup and salad consisted of Green Lentil and Quinoa “Tabouleh,” respectively. The main courses were Carrot Almond Falafel with Cauliflower “Couscous” Salad and Zucchini Hummus along with Chickpea Crepe with Braised Vegetables.
Coach Sara Black then conducted a workshop on meditation and mindfulness. Black introduced the concept of grounding for the first exercise and encouraged the participants to remove their shoes and leave these along with their mobile phones behind on the way to the amphitheater.
During the grounding or barefoot exercise, the participants were told to walk in silence, to feel the unevenness of the soil and the silent breeze as it caresses one’s skin, touch the plants and the bark of the trees along the path. To focus on the present is what mindfulness is all about, says Black.
At the amphitheater, Black and the guests formed a circle, did breathing exercises and centering and were told to utter words of affirmation such as “I am loved.” Participants wrote down on paper their answers as to what stages in their lives they were able to practice self-love and these answers were shared with each other.
And the most important part of the day which was the aqua lymphatic massage and facial combination treatment using Snailwhite Gold at the Healing Sanctuary located inside the Farm.
This procedure involved a 20-minute session of dry brushing to remove dead skin cells, help the circulation of lymph fluid and stimulate the blood flow throughout the body. What followed next was a detox session at the sauna for 10 minutes and an ice-cold rinse to revitalize and balance out the body temperature.
Healing Sanctuary’s aestheticians applied the Snailwhite Gold cream to moisturize the guests’ faces by using the tip of their fingers in what is called a special patting and massaging technique.
This Snailwhite Gold cream contains the brand’s famous Snail Potion plus 24-karat gold that boosts the skin’s collagen levels and elastin production, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates cell turnover to lighten the dark spots and marks.
Snailwhite Gold is available at leading Watsons and The SM Store branches nationwide and also online on BeautyMNL, Zalora and official Snail White stores on Lazada and Shopee.
