How's everyone doing today? As the holy month of Ramadhan is fast approaching, leading pharmacy, healthy and beauty retailer Guardian Malaysia launched its annual health and beauty campaign to help customers stay healthy and look good throughout Ramadhan, and the Hari Raya festival that follows.
Ramadhan is a time when Muslims across the world fast during the hours of daylight. In hot climate countries such as Malaysia, the heat and humidity could take a toll on the body and fatigue often sets in.
"Sihat and Anggun Sempena Aidilfitri" this year, the campaign continues to raise awareness and educate customers on how they can maintain a balanced and healthy lifestyle during the month-long fast, culminating in the festive celebrations. In particular, Guardian has identified and offers a wide range of healthy, beauty and wellness products that would meet customers' needs.
At a media review which held in Carcosa Seri Negara, Ledang Room to kick start this campaign, we were treated to a variety of activities including a health check by Guardian Pharmacists and a dialogue with Guardian's Health Advisor Siti Aishah Mohd Yunos. Her photo is above.

Hair care by Head of Cut Above Academy Peter Wong
One of the tips he shares on anyone who is having naturally wavy and dry hair.
- Don't shampoo everyday but do condition your hair every time you shower.
- When rinsing your hair, use cool water.
- Use your fingers to 'comb' your hair rather than using a comb (unless you're using a hair dryer).
- Embrace your curls and not use flat irons or hairdryers.
- Use leave-in-conditioners after every hair wash.
- Apply conditioner before washing hair and then apply again after rinsing off shampoo.
