Because childhood is the age of creativity, and need to experiment new things, especially girls from 3 years old when they like to notice and memorize their mother’s behavior.
It is normal for them when they want to look pretty like their mothers and tend to copy the style and makeup. Thus recently, Pornthip Tansiritanes Managing Director of Good For kids Limited, has launched kids cosmetics brand, ‘Puttisu’ to treat modern parents who want to fulfill their kids’ creativity with safety awareness as first priority, at Lady Nara Central Embassy Restaurant.
Mother and daughter celebrities attended the launch event; Jannis Yangpichit, and daughter, Janine Sophonpanich Yangpichit, Palawi Bunnag with Torsang Issara, Tawanna Thara with Milranee Kroekritvanit, including Nathanaporn Euawanthanakhun, and Sireepan Mathuraporn
‘Puttisu’ is number one kid cosmetics brand from Korea, suitable for children from 3 years old and pregnant mothers, or ladies with sensitive skin based on 100% natural ingredients, providing gentle and harmless effect to the skin, produced by standard technology to fulfill infinite imagination to children.
Pornthip Tansiritanes talked about the business background and signature of ‘Puttisu’ brand that, ‘We have been looking for cosmetics for children when we see that most girls love nail polish, and want to wear makeup like their moms. Their age is the time when they love to experiment and try new things. Adult cosmetics contain chemical substance that may cause irritation to children’s skin. Thus we conducted actual research, until we found Puttisu which is very popular in Korea where they place priority to brands for children exclusively. Apart from pure natural ingredients, there are new product inventions to add more variety for children in vibrant colors, proper for children’s age to enjoy applying those colors, including prominent and catchy packaging design. So we decided to import this brand to Thailand as we see it will address the needs of kids and parents who want to support their imagination.’

On a mission - the American violinist who’s documenting the tribal music and customs of the Golden Triangle
This large body of work weaves together a variety of dynamic forms - book, compact disc, photographs, films, musical instruments, artifacts and textiles. The "Songs of Memory" exhibit traveled further afield having been displayed at the Chiang Mai Arts and Culture Center and at the East-West Center in Hawaii.
The hill tribe people are animists who live close to nature and who have developed music and sacred chants to accommodate their various life ceremonies and rites. Their lifestyle has changed little over the centuries, but it is in danger of succumbing to the modern environment that is spreading fast in the mountains of the North.
Victoria's interest in music and indigenous cultures is expressed in her research and findings that are recorded, hopefully for posterity. "I am interested in the sonic environment - the music, ceremonies and culture,” she says. This is what had prompted her to delve into the the lives of the six major hill tribe groups that straddle the Golden triangle and the neighboring regions – the Akha, Lahu, Lisu, Mien, Hmong and Karen. As time went by, Victoria's work became more concentrated in hopes of creating an in-depth archive of these groups, beginning with the Hmong, which she has been studying for the past six years. Her work resulted in the “Hmong Songs of Memory” book and ethnographic film, published in 2016, which highlights all lyrics in the Hmong language as well as in English.
HOW DO I USE THEM?
AT HOME: Use the Buffing Brush or Beauty Blender to create high coverage using the powder alone, or use the Face & Body Brush to apply the Matte Clay Powder onto areas prone to shine to set make-up. Top up throughout the day where necessary

What is Pre-Diabetes and why we need to take it seriously
Diabetes is a global challenge and one of the fastest growing diseases in the world. Worldwide, almost 400 million individuals have diabetes. This means that one in 12 people in the world today have the disease. This number is expected to increase to 592 million in 2035 that is one new case every three seconds according to Mediterranean Group for the Study of Diabetes.
If you are diagnosed with pre-diabetes, it means you have a higher-thannormal blood sugar level but not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes yet. If you don’t get treatment, it can lead to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other serious organ failures. It’s real. It’s common. But most importantly, it’s reversible. You can prevent or delay pre-diabetes from developing into type 2 diabetes with simple, proven lifestyle changes.
Understanding pre-diabetes diagnosis
Your doctor may refer to pre-diabetes as the following:
• Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), which means a higher-than-normal blood sugar after a meal
• Impaired fasting glucose (IFG), which means a higher-than-normal blood sugar in the morning before eating
• Insulin resistance, which means your body can’t use insulin effectively
Symptoms of pre-diabetes
Pre-diabetes has no clear symptoms. Some people may experience conditions that are associated with insulin resistance, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome and acanthosis nigricans, which is a brown to black, poorly defined, velvety hyperpigmentation of the skin. This discoloration usually occurs around the elbows, knees, neck, armpits, and
knuckles. If you’ve been diagnosed with prediabetes, it’s important to consult your doctor if you experience the following symptoms; increased thirst, frequent urination especially at night, fatigue, blurry vision, sores or cuts that won’t heal. These are symptoms typical of type 2 diabetes and may indicate that your pre-diabetes has progressed to type 2 diabetes. A doctor can run a series of tests to confirm this.
Causes of pre-diabetes
The food you eat turns into sugar which the body uses for energy. The pancreas makes insulin to allow the sugar in the bloodstream to enter the cells. This is how insulin helps lower the blood sugar level. In the case of pre-diabetes, the cells don’t respond to insulin properly and this is called insulin resistance. According to newest research and the recommendations by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and several government health agencies around the world, pre-diabetes is strongly linked to 90% lifestyle choices and 10% genetics.
Risk factors for pre-diabetes
Anyone is vulnerable to pre-diabetics but some factors might increase the probability. If you’re over 45 years old or you have a body mass index (BMI) higher than 25, your doctor may want to screen you for pre-diabetes. With teenage obesity growing globally, a diabetes screen is recommended for people that are struggling with obesity for 10 years or more, no matter at what age. Another risk factor for pre-diabetes is being sedentary.
According to the American Diabetes Association, a mere thirty minutes of exercise per day and a loss of 5-10 percent will help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes progression by over 58 percent. However, to seriously lose weight you will need to increase to at least 200 minutes per week. You might want to ask a fitness trainer for guidance.
