Easy Skincare Tips For Woman Always On The Move

Posted by Ada Hersko on August 28, 2017 0 Comments

Beauty On The Go

Living out of your suitcase and travelling the world may seem like a dream job, all till you realise the havoc it can cause, on your health, skin and hair.

Finding the right skin-care routine is hard enough, and to find something that works wonders when you are on the move is no easy task. That's why we’ve rounded up five essential tips that will help you ace your beauty routine when on the go.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

There is no such thing as too much water. Especially when you're in the air, your body needs all the hydration it can get. So drink up, and it will keep your skin looking hydrated and clear. Plus, it helps keep bloating in check.

It's All In The Eyes

No one likes to get off a plane with puffy eyes. But, that doesn't mean we usually can escape them. So always remember to pack an eye serum that helps de-puff eyes. Another quick trick is mascara, don't board a flight with it, but remember to always end one with it.

Rose-y Cheeks, Anyone?

Rosewater is a great post-flight pick-me-up. It offers instant hydration to the skin and is devoid of chemicals, which your skin will be thankful for. All you have to do, is spray a little on before applying any makeup. And you don’t always have to opt for store-bought, just mix a little rose oil with water and you’re good to go.

No One Wakes Up 'Like That'

It's not just the skin that needs special attention while travelling. We've all had limp plane hair, and it's not something we'd want to get used to.

Hence, one rule to stick by, always pack dry shampoo. It's a super simple way to get your bouncy hair back.

Summer Skin Care Tips You Must Follow This Season

Posted by Ada Hersko on June 26, 2017 0 Comments

Every year, summers take a toll on the skin. The scorching heat, pollution, humidity, et al, wipes it off the natural glow, and sometimes, invites infections. To avoid all these hassles, and to keep your skin radiating like before, here are the eight easy-peasy tips you can follow this season.

1. Exfoliate your body

The ground rule of basic skincare is to exfoliate your skin. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day. If you don't get rid of them, they'll just set in on your skin making you look dull and dry. No matter how much lotion you use, you're never going to have glowing skin if you don't exfoliate. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body from the shoulders down (you'll want a facial exfoliator for your face and neck) and rinse clean. Continue to do this 2-3 times a week for year-round beautiful skin.

2. Sunscreen is a must

Throw away last year's unused sunscreen for a new bottle. Sunscreens aren't meant to last forever, and seeing most people don't use as much as they should. Buy a new sunscreen that has UVA and UVB products and comes in SPF 30 and SPF 70. You should be using a shot glass full for your body and a full teaspoon just on your face. Reapply it every 1-2 hours that you are in the sun to ensure a summer full of safe sun fun.

3. Go for minimal make-up

During summers less make-up is best. Under the intolerant sun, natural looks are best. If you intend to use foundation then also apply face powder with SPF to avoid patchy skin. To protect your lips always use a gloss or a lip balm with an SPF of 15 to make your lips fresher. Eye make is something which should be very much avoided in summers.

4. Make water your best friend

At least 8 glasses of water are needed. If possible, carry a water bottle with you and remember to drink at least once every 30 min. Water not only helps you feel fresh, but it also prevents dehydration and will help wash out a lot of toxins.

5. Hydrate your body with a lotion

Find a summery lotion that you won't forget to put on. It's time to pack away your thick winter body butters for more light summery lotions. You don't have time to wait for your lotion to sink in, so look for something light fast absorbing. Gels and purees are perfect fast absorbers. Nothing spells summer more than a light refreshing fruity lotion. Make sure you apply right after you dry off from your shower. You need to seal in the moisture your body just soaked in.

6. Summer glow

You have so many choices when it comes to adding a little summer tint to your skin, and the tanning bed shouldn't be one of them. Using a sunless tanner will give your skin a beautiful start to summer. Even if you're not a fan of sunless tanners all over your body, you can happily use them on your face. If you alternate your facial moisturizer with one that builds a bit of colour, you'll have a healthy glow that will make it look as though you just spent the weekend on the beach. Most facial tanners build colour gradually, by alternating with your regular moisturizer; you'll never get too dark.

7. Don't forget your feet

Winter boots have long since been packed away; it's sandal season ladies. Either go or get a pedicure (try a beauty school if cost is a factor), or give yourself an at-home pedicure. You scrub off the dead dry skin to reveal your sandal ready feet. Nothing is worse than seeing dull dry feet inside cute sandals. It doesn't have to be a big ordeal. Keep a foot scrub and file in your shower and scrub your feet a few times a week. You'll notice a big difference in the softness of your feet.

8. Look for a summery polish

Buy a bold new polish for your toes. Toe nails can be painted a much bolder colour than you would usually put on your fingernails. Pick out something that screams summer. Polish tends to stay on your toes much longer than your hands because you don't abuse your toe nails like you do your finger nails. Apply a clear base coat, two applications of colour and a clear top coat to protect. Go barefoot or put on your flip-flops for at least a couple hours to make sure your polish won't dent.

5 Surprising Health Benefits Of Sweating That Actually Don't Stink

Posted by Ada Hersko on May 10, 2017 0 Comments

Sweating can be embarrassing if you’re at school, work, or spending a night out on the town. Sweat marks and the stench could leave you in a pit of embarrassment but could also be beneficial to your health. The almost 1 liter of sweat our bodies produce per day can strengthen our immune system and give us healthy-looking skin.

Sweating is the way the body and the skin protects itself from overheating. Sweating also increases the blood circulation in the body. The drips of perspiration is proof our body has a built-in mechanism for keeping cool, which can help open up and unclog pores. The droplets consist primarily of water, as well as concentrations of sodium and chloride, and potassium to an extent.

Don’t be afraid to sweat it out with these six health benefits that actually don’t stink.

1. Boosts Endorphins

Prolonged sweating is expected to occur at the gym during an intense workout or even brisk walking in the sun. Exercising increases the level of the “feel-good” endorphin hormones that are naturally released during physical activity. Group workouts actually increase endorphin levels and cause less pain for those who work out together than those who train alone. Sweating it out during a group exercises like Zumba or hot yoga can help put a smile on your face.

2. Detoxifies Body

One of the most efficient ways to detox your body — without the juicing — is to sweat. Sweating can flush the body of substances of alcohol, cholesterol, and salt. The body releases toxins by using sweat as the conduit. “Sweat purges the body of toxins that can clog pores and plague the skin with pimples and blemishes,” Dele-Michael said.

A 2011 study published in the journal Archives of Environmental and Contamination Toxicology found many toxic elements appeared to be excreted through sweat. Induced sweating appears to be a potential method for the elimination of many toxic elements from the human body. Researchers believe sweat analysis could be considered as an additional method for the monitoring of toxic elements in humans rather than just blood and/or urine testing.

3. Lowers Kidney Stone Risk

Sweating can be an effective way to sweat out the salt and retain calcium in your bones. This limits the accumulation of salt and calcium in the kidneys and urine, which is where the stones come from. It is no coincidence people who sweat tend to drink more water and fluids, which is another prevention method for kidney stones.

A study presented at the 2013 American Urological Association conference in San Diego, Calif., found even walking for a couple of hours a week could cut the risk for developing kidney stones. Mild to moderate activity changes the way the body handles nutrients and fluids that affect stone formation. Sweating helps flush out the system more efficiently because it demands more hydration from the body.

4. Prevents Colds And Other Illnesses

Perspiring can actually help fight tuberculosis germs and other dangerous pathogens. Sweat contains antimicrobial peptides effective against viruses, bacteria, and fungi. These peptides are positively charged and attract negatively charged bacterial, enter the membranes of bacteria, and break them down.

A 2013 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences proved dermcidin is a highly effective tool to fight not only tuberculosis germs but other dangerous bugs. The researchers believe these natural substances are more effective in the long-term than traditional antibiotics because germs are not capable of quickly developing resistance to them. The natural antibiotic is naturally activated in salty, slightly acidic sweat.

5. Zaps Zits

Your pores open up when you sweat and that releases the buildup inside them. Sweat purges the body of toxins that can clog pores and plague the skin with pimples and blemishes.

These skin benefits only apply to mild or moderate sweating. Excessive sweating, formally known as hyperhidrosis, can actually predispose individuals to skin infections such as warts and tinea. Eczema and rashes occur more often in people with hyperhidrosis.
