Gym Makeup Tips

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I have a little fitness secret to tell you. I wear makeup at the gym when I workout. Shhh… Okay, okay, before you go ahead jump and judge me, let me tell you why! Well I just don’t like going out there bare faced considering that I have to be travelling at least 30 minutes going to the gym. I do commute so you’d understand that I would want to look at least presentable with people around while I am just sitting there with my earphones on listening to my music list. And hey! The gym is a room full of mirrors, who doesn’t want to look good? Haha!

Anyway, I don’t really go heavy on makeup when I workout because the last thing I want to have are breakouts. Sweat mixed with makeup is not good as it can clog pores causing breakouts. That is why it is not really advisable to wear makeup during workout, but if you MUST (like me) be out there a little made up, make sure you use the right products. I personally just to simply touch up my face with my few makeup must haves. Here’s my list below:

Water based moisturizer – I love to keep it lightweight. Water based moisturizer is just refreshing to the skin while it does its job in controlling skin’s oil and shine.

Giving Yourself a Little Extra Attention

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Staying refreshed can be difficult, especially if you have a busy schedule. It is important to spend some extra time treating yourself to a bit of pampering. There are plenty of ways that you can spend time relaxing. Here are some ideas to help you unwind at the end of a long day.

Soak in a Hot Bath

Taking a hot bubble bath can be incredibly relaxing. Many bath pillows are available that have suction cups that attach to the bathtub. Using a bath pillow will help you lean back comfortably and enjoy the warm water. You can also try to use a bath bomb with a relaxing scent, such as lavender, as part of your bath. Bath bombs are available in many scents, and these scents can invigorate your senses and help you relax. Many people enjoy reading a favorite novel or magazine while relaxing in a warm bath.

Give Yourself a Manicure

You can also give yourself a manicure as a way to unwind. After you are finished with your bath, gently push your cuticles back. Cover your nails with a natural nail base coat and follow this with your favorite color of nail polish. You may also want to give yourself a pedicure. You can try a variety of colors or techniques to enhance the appearance of your nails. For example, you can choose to polish your nails slightly different hues of the same color. Adding white tips on the end of nails can create an incredibly sophisticated style.

Use a Facial Mask

Many facial masks are available that offer ingredients that can soothe and refresh your skin. Applying a facial mask can help exfoliate your skin and get rid of dead skin cells. When you rinse the mask off, your skin will feel clean and smooth. The mask can help your skin gain important nutrients and vitamins that promote healthy skin.

Try to set aside time at least once a week to pamper yourself. Doing some of these spa services at home is easy and affordable. You will be delighted with the revitalized feeling you have after you have a chance to relax.

Oils For Daily Use

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

You’ve probably smelled essential oils at some point. They are the oils that can be added to bath water for a delightful smell and the oils that are sometimes put in vacuum cleaners to make the entire house smell good. You’ve likely noticed that they do wonders for the body. There are quite a few benefits of using essential oil singles, some that you might not know about that you might want to try as soon as possible.

One of the oils that you can dab on the skin is tea tree. It is good for healing issues with the skin, such as acne or fungus on the feet. Place a small amount on a cotton ball to put it on the face or other areas as you don’t need a large amount. If you’re looking for a way to relax, then consider using lavender oils. When the oil is warmed before going to bed, the scent can help relax the mind and the body, making it easier to go to sleep at night. You can also put a small amount of the oil in your bath water to help you relax as well. The oil can reduce stress levels after a long day. Put a small amount on your hands, rub the hands together, and gently sniff the oil to get the full effect of the oil.

Chamomile is often associated with tea. The oil has properties that are similar to the tea, relaxing the body and reducing stress. This is a reason why so many people will drink the tea before going to bed. Some people will add a small amount of the oil to their pillowcase to help relax the body and mind. Peppermint is an oil that has numerous properties. It can be used to stimulate the mind, or it can be used to increase mental alertness. Some people will dab a small amount of the oil under the nose to help open the sinuses. This will make it easier to breathe if you suffer from allergies or sinus infections on a regular basis with no relief from medications.

Hairfood Co. BlogCon Meet-up

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Hairfood Co., Philippines’ fast growing hair care brand recently held a blog conference in Cagayan de Oro to share the brand’s mission to the bloggers who attended the mini conference.

Though I have been using the products (Shampoo, Conditioner, essential oils such as the argan, rosehip, sunflower, and the weekend oil), I didn’t want to let the opportunity of hearing what they have to share about the brand so I was definitely grateful to have been invited to the event. It was such an eye opener and we all went home filled with knowledge about the brand and most of all, the chemicals we unknowingly put onto our hair/body that actually harms us, jeopardizing our health. Interesting!

Because hairfood co is focused on producing haircare products that does not result to eventual hair damage and health hazzards, I think it was great that they went their way to educating us about the main contents of the hair products we commonly use. I wasn’t really big in checking what’s in the hair products I use but after the blogcon, I realized I should be more vigilant to every product’s content regardless if it’s food or personal effects. It’s alarming how naive most of us are, and how we unconsciously put our health to peril by using  hair products that contains Paraben and Sulfates.

Paraben and Sulfates? WTH are those? Well, to help you understand better, Here’s a short info about them.

The Truth About Paraben and Sulfates

What is Sulfate?

When you wash your hair with most shampoos, you will most likely work up a thick lather (love it! right?). This thick lather that many of us love to see or feel, is actually produced by the sodium lauryl sulfate placed in the shampoo. Sodium lauryl is a detergent and crystalline salt of sulfated lauryl alcohol. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a sulfactant; a sulfactant is a product that reduces surface tension between a liquid and a solid. This reduction in surface tension is what produces the rich lather. Once surface tension is removed, the barrier between your hair and the shampoo is eliminated, enabling the sodium lauryl sulfate to rid the hair of oil and dirt.

NOVUHAIR’S INFORMATIVE TRUTH ON HAIR CHEMICALS

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

We may not be aware that we are unknowingly putting harmful chemicals on our hair thus resulting to general conditions such as migraine, nausea and skin rashes. The symptoms may be quickly attributed to stress but if you look closer to that hair product you’re using, you’ll be surprise to find the culprit.

Popularity does not equate to safety, some popular brands sold in the market are loaded with mildly toxic chemicals that may be harmful in prolonged use.

novuhair gary v

Novuhair, Nature’s answer to hair loss, gives you the lowdown on these chemicals to help you with your choices.

Myth: Shampoo must produce lots of lather in order to properly clean your hair.

Truth: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a compound that helps shampoo and other cleaning product in producing foam and bubbles. Though it may effectively remove hair build-up, it can also strip off essential oils that is needed to keep your hair healthy.

Myth: Parabens has an anti-bacterial compound benefits that outweighs the harm.

Truth: Parabens are basically used to prolong the shelf life of hair and cosmetic products mostly for its antibacterial purpose. Symptoms that are related to over exposure to parabens are Atopic Dermatitis and Rosacea. Further studies also show that use of products with parabens accelerate skin damage and aging related to sun exposure.

novuhair organic

Myth: My hair smells terrific! I love the perfume scent on my hair product.

Truth: A nice whiff of perfume might not be harmful but the fragrance that is mixed in your hair product might have come from harmful substances from highly toxic ingredients which can lead to Allergic reactions and mood swings. That perfume is better off somewhere else.

Myth: Hair products that promise straightening and smoothening effect use non-toxic Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate as a natural preservative.

Truth: Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a substance used in making your hair soft and bouncy, although it is considered natural preservative, also releases formaldehyde which can lead to skin and eye irritations. Prolonged use may also affect your immune system.

Use of some of these chemicals combined may also result to hair loss and other hair problems, thus, it is important to be an informed consumer. A lot of new products have saturated the market hence, read the labels for fine prints before buying.

Tips on Getting Veneers

veneers
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

There is an old saying that says that the first thing that a person notices about you is your smile. This is a very true sentiment. Maintaining dental healthy isn’t always as easy as just going to the dentist every year. Some people have serious dental issues that cause their teeth to stain and break easily. This can happen no matter how much attention and care a person gives their teeth.

veneers

One option to remedy this situation is to get veneers. Veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry made of porcelain. They are a cap that goes over the existing teeth. Having a new, great looking smile can go a long way towards helping a person’s self-esteem. Latest advances in cosmetic dentistry have made porcelain veneers look more natural than ever. They are also more affordable than ever. Charlotte Dental Partners is a dental office that can maker veneers Charlotte NC has to offer. Anyone that is considering getting veneers should take the following into consideration.

The look

This is the most obvious reasons and probably the only reasons that most people decide to get veneers. They make your teeth look better. They hide stains, cracks, and chips. They can make an otherwise sick looking teeth appear to very healthy. There are some other benefits of veneers, though.

Protection

A lot of people don’t consider the added protection that veneers can give a person’s teeth. Think about it. They are basically another level of enamel around the tooth that protects it from outside elements. The material that makes up veneers is very tough and can’t withstand just about anything. They will go a long way towards protecting your teeth from further damage down the road on top of making them look much better.

Maintenance

Other forms of dentistry take a lot of upkeep to make them effective. This is not true with veneers. Properly taking care of veneers is as simple as performing the normal tooth care that people do on a daily basis like brushing their teeth and flossing. Veneers that are taken care of properly typically last a very long time for those that have them.

Anyone that wants to improve their smile should consider getting veneers. It is a good idea to consult with a cosmetic dentist before undergoing the procedure. They can guide a patient on where the veneers are needed and what kind of material to use to get the best results.

Got myself this on my first visit. Because my hair is heavily colored (I can’t remember when was the last time I had it in its natural color!), my hair feels so dull and dry every after shampoo. I am definitely inlove with Hairfood Co.’s Awesome Volume Conditioner as it brought back my hair’s moisture, making it very easy to comb and it added volume to my dull colored hair. This is Paraben-free (Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in personal care products use extend the shelf life of products and prevent growth of bacteria and fungi. It has been linked to breast cancer – you may google it for further information). It’s high-fat content of Avocados makes the  hair less dry and less prone to breakage. I definitely recommend this especially those with thin hair and feels like it’s lifeless, limp, and flat!

I also got more goodies from them that are great for both skin and the hair. Oil essentials such Argan oil, Rosehip oil, and Sunflower oil. I will be sharing more of them on a later post as I am using them mostly for my skin and I am excited to see their result!
