The lips has a tendency to dry out in dry or cold weather and even becomes cracked. Using lip balm protects the lips from dry or cold weather, and helps seal the moisture in the lips.

iACADEMY: The Perfect School for Millennials

Almost every one I know experienced the pains of choosing the right college course during high school. Of course, that was the time when senior high school is not yet implemented in the Philippine educational system. Popular courses back then was B.S. Nursing and B.S. Accountancy because it is common knowledge that these courses were very much in-demand here in the country and abroad.

Luckily for students now, Senior High School was implemented 3 years ago. That means, incoming Senior High Students has the advantage of being more prepared in terms of what course to take up in college thru STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), ABM (Accounting and Business Management), HUMSS (Humanities and Social Science), GAS (General Academics Strand) strand. During Junior High School, the students undergo several career test that will determine which strand is best suited for them so that when they enter Senior High School, they are already grouped based on what strand is suitable for them because each strand has specialized subjects that corresponds to the course that they will take up in college.

And as we move on unto the 21st century, parents are much more supportive when it comes to choosing the perfect Senior High School for their millennial kids because we all live in a competitive world after all.
