Our bodies need water. In fact, our bodies give us signs to let us know when we dehydrated. During the year, if you make this a priority it will help your energy levels, your skin, and your waistline. In fact, water helps to moisturize your skin from the inside out. I tell my clients all the time that water consumption before a meal increases satiety and decreases residual caloric intake. When you feel the urge to snack, ask if maybe your hunger pains are actually due to dehydration.

Drink tea. To be more specific, drink green tea. The compounds in green tea called catechins appear to speed up the rate at which calories are burned. It is also loaded with antioxidants and is not as dehydrating as other caffeine beverages.

2. Say Yes to Macronutrients

How many individuals dislike hearing the word “diet?” Remember, that any “diet” that promotes the elimination of one of the macronutrients-proteins, carbohydrates, and fats- is not a practical method of eating that can be sustained, nor does it have a foundation in health, nutrition, and wellness. In fact, over the top and fad “diets” actually hinder delay future weight loss by slowing down the metabolism. So do not “diet” just be mindful.

For each meal, imagine your plate full of colorful and vibrant foods comprised of the three macronutrients. Incorporating whole fruits as a treat are always the best choice. Tips: Limit your intake of alcoholic beverages, mix with seltzer water, and eat something small before going to a party.

3. Daily Detoxification

We will feel and look our best if the body continues to eliminate excess wastes. This can be achieved by stocking up on vegetables from the Brassica family (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage). Also, consuming high fiber cereals, as well as acidophilus-rich yogurt, plus water and herbal teas.

4. Relax and Reflect

It sees there is never enough time in the day. Sometimes we need to know when enough is enough. Adequate rest allows the body a chance to properly digest and heal. Keeping stress in check is one of the best health & beauty secrets out there.

In your down time take time for you. Whether it is listening to music, reading a book, taking a bubble bath, or all of the above, your body will thank you.

5. Shake What Your Mama Gave You

Incorporating physical activity into your daily routine boost your mood and increases your energy levels. We have all heard that when you exercise, your body releases endorphins. These endorphins give you a euphoric feeling- a boost of happiness. Who does not want to feel that way?

There are many different aerobic activities to try that will keep your heart in shape and get you moving and burning those unwanted calories (walking, biking, Zumba, yoga, kick-boxing). You Pick!

I like to say that, “working up a good sweat is comparable to getting a mini-vacial.” “When the pores dilate, sweat expels trapped dirt and oil.

Botox Treatments FAQ

Botox remains one of the most popular cosmetic treatments that is used to cut the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and laugh lines. These fine lines can quickly make a person's self-confidence fall and leave them wishing that they had the same taut skin they had when they were youngger, and making them wonder whether this procedure is right for them. These answer to some of the most commonly asked questions will help every person decide if this is the right treatment for them.

What is injected into the skin?

A drug called botulinum toxin is produced using a neurotoxin. Botulinum toxin is simply Botox for short.

How does it work?

Botox works by paralysing groups of muscles. A person develops wrinkles because of the way that the skin moves when they do certain things or make certain expressions. For example, when a person smiles, the skin by the eyes wrinkles, resulting in crow's feet. Botox works by temporarily paralysis those muscles, preventing them from moving, therefore preventing wrinkles from developing

Will I still be able to smile?

It seems as though everyone has seen a television show or funny meme that over exaggerates the effects of this procedure. Most people think of an elderly woman who tells those around her that she is laughing, but they can not tell because she just got Botox. Her face is stiff and does not move at all.

While these may be comical, they have led several patients to believe that this is what this treatment will do. Many patients do experience a reduced ability to move their facial muscles, but it is not usually as extreme as it is depicted in the movies.

For example, a person will usually still be able to smile after a treatment, but they may not be able to smile as widly as they could prior to the injection.

Is it safe?

As with any drug, there is the risk of side effects. Some of the common side effects that patients report after receiving their first injection include, but are not limited to: itching, muscle stiffness, muscle weakness, sore throat and runny nose. Patients often experience a few mild side effects at the injection site, such as swelling and mild inflammation.

Every person will have a different experience, just like ever medication effect every patient differently. While one patient may not have any side effects, another may have quite a few. Free consultations are often available to speak with a trusted member of the medical community to decide risk factors.

How long will it last?

Often, this depends on the treatment that is given. Some patients choose to receive an injection that can last for up to five years while other patients opt for one that will last about six months. This all depends on what the patient wants.

Patients that are receiving their first injection are encouraged to start small to reduce the risk of side effects, and to make sure that this is right for them.

These are some of the most often asked questions by patients that are interested in this method to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or to help prevent them all together. Patients that have more questions are encouraged to call their local spa to ask about scheduling a free consultation to ask them any other questions, and to help them decide if this method is right for them.

While this procedure is one of the most popular, people also have many other options available, such as fillers and make up. Every person is different, and every person is open to different things. Deciding on the perfect plan is all about the patient.

Starting Your Natural Hair Journey

Natural Hair Journey

To have a successful natural hair journey it is important that you gain the understanding of what natural hair is.

There are many different definitions to describe “Natural Hair,” The most typical description for natural hair is described as relaxer-free hair or chemical-free hair. The hair strands are in their natural state whether straight, wavy, curly, or coils that has not been chemically altered from its original hair pattern or color.

Starting Your Natural Hair Journey

There is no right or wrong way to go natural. Your decision to go natural or thinking about it is important only to you. So, congratulations on beginning or continuing your journey. Now you will experience ups and downs along the way improving your hair care routine. You will learn what products or even styles that your hair will accept or disregard. Do not worry it's all part of the journey. I got through it and still learning.

If you decide to transition to natural hair, it's important to know where your natural hair and relaxed hair meet. It's not hard to identify because there is a noticeable difference in feel and look. At this stage you can decide to cut off the relaxed ends, or do the “Big Chop” like I did twice. I share that another time soon. Relaxers are not a bad thing as long as you get it done every 4 to 6 weeks and treated. I came across women with relaxed beautiful healthy hair. However, relaxers can leave your hair damaged, brittle, and dull over time. Do not forget about those sensitive scalp burns. OUCH!

I remember in the beginning of my journey figuring out what product work or did not work for my hair was challenging. Yes, YouTube helped. Taking advise from curly friends was nice too. Reading blogs were helpful too . However, I still had to figure it out myself while reading labels and trying to stick close to organic ingredients for my hair. Making the selection between advertised natural hair products were seemingly confusing and difficult. Trust me I was there! Selecting your products is important and many naturals spend a lot of their time trying new products in an attempt to find the perfect aka The HOLY GRAIL products for their hair.

My advice is that you must get to know and understand, and then decide which products that work best for your hair. The light bulb effect is to focus on what works for your hair! Get rid of the product (s) that do not work, please do not tolerate them. This process will help you make a better decision to complete your hair care routine. Just keep it simple. You will be fine.

Dermal Fillers: What You Need to Know

Whether it's deep wrinkles or that scar you got from a really nasty fall, or even a surgical scar, there are some things about your body you wish you could make go away. Dermal fillers may be the answer. No, they're not another form of Botox, although as you will see they are intended to reach the same result.

How It Works

Unlike Botox, dermal fillers do not paralyze your muscles to achieve the appearance of smoother skin. They literally fill in the crease, line, or area similar to how you inflate a balloon by filling it with air.

What Fillers are The Most Popular?

One of the most common dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid – this is an umbrella term for a variety of different fillers, all of which work in slightly different ways and then have varying results.
Another category is collagen, which you've probably already familiar with due to reports of it being used in other cosmetic procedures.

There are also autologous fillers, the most common of which use fat and the less common uses platelet-rich plasma injections (you may hear the term “vampire lift” in reference to these).

You may also want to consider a synthetic filler, one which was developed in a laboratory and is not related to anything you find naturally in the skin.
While new developments have led to improvements in dermal fillers, reducing the chance of allergic reaction and making these injections more useful to a broader range of people, please note that none of these have been rated as “completely safe.”

What are the side effects?

As with anything that falls under the category of “invasive procedures,” dermal fillers carry their own set of side effects, and these may vary depending on which type of filler you decide on. Some can occur with any type of filler, mainly swapping, bruising, and reddening of the skin around the injection site.

Allergic reactions are associated with collagen fillers, particularly those sourced from cows. You may see or feel tiny bumps or nodules under the skin. These will either go away on their own ever or more rarely, will require surgery to remove. In very rare cases, skin cells may die if fillers are not used the right way; there have also been reports of blindness and nerve paralysis. It's also worth noting that synthetic fillers, when used incorrectly, carry a real risk of disfigurement.

Perhaps the most important factor to consider is how long the results of a filler will last. The fillers which are the most effective and last the longest are also the most likely to cause side effects.

Barbers of the 21st Century May Surprise You

The days of simple, cookie-cutter haircuts for men have passed. What has been historically considered “a day at the salon” for women now caters to men as well. Whether a guy is looking for a simple clip or the latest style, an increasing number of barbers are more equipped. The art of hair hair, from head to chin, has become more than a niche market.

As with any skilled trade, barbers are well trained and will generally be in tune with the pulse of the latest styles. It might even be more beneficial to let them decide what look will compliment you best.

The Options

Among the most popular men's hairstyles are the taper and the fade. As the name implies, a tapered cut leaves the hair on the top of the head long, while the hair on the back and the sides of the head are gradually cut shorter. The taper is very popular among young professionals who desire a fashionable hairstyle without being too radical.

The fade is similar to a taper but with subtle differences. The basic fade consistants of near bald sides and back with a greater contrast between long and short. The top will generally be left long, with near baldness starting about two inches below the crown. This method produces a slick, sharp look while maintaining a professional appearance.

Facial Hair

Facial hair is another branch in the art of hair styling. Every man has a differently shaped face, and there are huge variations in the thickness and coverage of facial hair. Again, letting the barbers in on the decision of what looks best is definitely the way to go. Among the most popular and corporately acceptable is the circle beard. It consist of a mustache and goatee, with the rest of the face clean-shaven. This style is best suited for men with a circular or oval shaped face.

The next time you are in the market for a haircut, find a salon that is as knowledgeable about men's styles as it is about women's. You will come out looking your best, most confident self. You may even be surprised at what they design for your unique features.

Tips on How to Determine True Organic Products

Nowadays, people are more conscious about the products they use and the food they eat. The word 'organic' or natural looks to be plastered in labels of products found in stores. During ancient times, people survived only on the things that nature provided them. Everything they use and eat came naturally from the Earth. With the advancement of technology, people have become too comfortable with things that are easy and instant. Soon, natural products were replaced with synthetic products filled with toxic materials that are hazardous to the health. Still, people patronize them because of the instant effects without realizing that these products may pose serious health risk with long-term use. The return of natural products shattered people's belief that products are usually buy on the shelves are better than natural ones. Most products found on the shelves are filled with toxic substances that may pose serious health risk such as cancer. Meanwhile, natural products have enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that are easily recognized by the human body. They came from plants and other natural sources that share the same components as the human body. Aside from being healthier options, natural goods are way cheaper than their synthetic counterparts.

People have also become more conscious about the impact they have on nature. Natural goods are earth-friendly and support safe farming. Chemical-filled products are not only harmful to the human body but also to nature. Toxic chemicals used in farming like pesticides are easily absorbed by the soil, and into the water and air.

Consumers slowly turned to natural and organic and manufacturers are quick to notice this change in consumer behavior. More and more manufacturers are producing natural goods. But how do we know the real thing from the fake? Some manufacturers are just taking advantage of the word natural in their product labels. It is not enough to just believe that what you are eating or using are natural. Here are easy tips and ways to know whatever what you are buying are true organic products or not:

1. Always check the label and ingredients.

Sure, you pick up a bottle of moisturizer that says organic and natural. But is it really organic? As mentioned above, it is not enough to believe a product's claim that it is natural. It pays to check the label and the ingredients listed on the product. Checking the label is the most effective way of knowing whether the product you are about to purchase is natural or not. Most natural goods are made with no parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, or silicone. Ingredients used are mostly derived from plants, fruits, and vegetables and are 100% biodegradable. You will also notice that natural beauty products have shelf shelf life and you may also notice changes in appearance and smell. Organic beauty products are also cruelty-free and are against animal testing.

2. Stop, look and feel.

Not all fruits and vegetables are grown organically. Some are genetically modified while others are grown using toxic insecticides. How do you know which ones are which? Check the appearance of the fruit or vegetable. If the fruit or vegetables are identical in sizes, shape, and have the same leaves, chances are they are genetically modified. Organic grown fruits and vegetables are also smaller in sizes so while you may be impressed with huge tomatoes, they were probably genetically modified.

Checking the stickers or labels will also help you in determining if a fruits or vegetable is organic. Those codes you see on them are not just for scanning at the counter but it tells you if your product is organic or not. Price Look Up or PLU code can tell you if your fruit and vegetable was grown naturally. Codes may differ in different regions but usually, if there are only four numbers, it means that it was grown with the use of pesticides. If the code has five numbers and starts with an eight, it means that the product is genetically modified. If the code has five numbers and starts with a nine, then you are purchasing a fresh produce that was organically grown.

3. Worms are your new best friend.

Generally speaking, most people are ticked off by the idea of ​​fruits and vegetables with worms or have worm bites in it. Contrary to popular belief, vegetable or fruits with worm bites are safer that the perfect ones. Because a perfect vegetable can mean only one thing: pesticide.

4. Research, research, research.

You have the power of the internet in your hands. Use it to find sources of organically grown products and take the time to visit farms. Once you know if a farm is growing their good organically, purchase straight from the farm or find out where they supply their produce.

You can also research on how to grow your own vegetable or fruit. This way, you know very well what is being done to your fruit or veggies.

5. Do not hesitate to call and ask.

If you are still having doubts about the product, do not hesitate to call the company and ask. As a consumer, you have the right and as manufacturers, they have a responsibility. So go ahead and call their toll free numbers.

Everything You Need To Know About Virgin Hair

Virgin hair, also known as raw hair is human hair that hasn’t been treated chemically, bleached or permed. It is obtained directly from the head of a donor, washed and then packed for sale. All the cuticles are intact and lay in the same direction thus making the unit smooth and soft to the touch.

Benefits of virgin hair

There are plenty of benefits that come with wearing virgin hair. Some of these benefits include:

Many styling options: Treated units limit the number of styling options that you can apply on it. Studies show that treated hair becomes difficult to color. It also tends to color off easily. Stylists have reported having a hard time curling and straightening treated units. Since raw hair is 100% natural, you don’t encounter any of these problems thus you can apply any style without any problem.

No shredding during combing: One of the major issues that many women report is shedding of the units during combing. Brazilian virgin hair and other types of raw units are made up of thick strong strands that don’t break easily; therefore, you don’t lose hair when combing.

Natural results: If you have used synthetic units you know that they tend to have a shiny, annoying look. This isn’t the case with virgin units. Since they are untreated they retain all the natural qualities of real hair thus when you apply any style, the units fall and frames the face just like your natural hair.

Resistance to damage from hair products: Since the strands are strong, they remain strong and soft even after being exposed to a wide range of hair styling products. Due to this, you can use different hair treatment products without worrying about damaging your hair.

Guide to buying virgin hair

Due to the high demand for the hair, there are some unscrupulous businessmen who try passing off synthetic, fake hair as virgin hair. The first thing that you should do is smell the hair. Chemically processed hair will have a unique smell and you should stay away from it.

You should also take a look at the condition of the wefts. For the hair to last for long and retain its great looks for a long time the wefts shouldn’t have loose threads, rips, uneven stitching or any other irregularities.

The color of the units will help you in determining if it’s genuine. You should remember that no genuine units should have any other color other than the natural black color.

Easy Tips for Hydrating Hair and Preventing Dryness

While every weather brings with it different kind of hair woes, it is not difficult to tackle any of these if you know how to. Winters might be stripping your hair of natural oils and making your hair dry, so do monsoons by making your hair frizzy and oily. Summer has its own woes for making hair greasy and dry, thanks to the scorching sun. It is essential to understand your hair and its health so that moisturising your hair becomes as easy as brushing your teeth.

Before going into the care for dry hair, one needs to know why the problem of dry hair curls. There can be two reasons for dry hair- either your scalp is not producing ample natural oil for moisturization of hair or your natural structure of hair is allowing excessive moisture to escape thus leading to dry hair. The cuticle of the hair, which is the outermost layer might be loosening, thus creating gap and tending all the moisture from the inner layers to escape.

Causes and solutions for dry hair

  • The foremost cause of hair dryness can be attributed to thermal abuse. Today’s generation has been increasingly using thermal products such as flat irons, curling rods and so much more to make the hair stands weaker and dryer. High temperatures from these heat-emanating gadgets are stripping the natural oils and causing the hair to become dry and brittle.
  • The best way to minimize the damage is to limit the use of such heat tools Choose buns and other hairstyles that do not need heat styling.
  • If you have to use heat tools, invest in a good thermal protective formula before applying heat to your strands. This will create a protective barrier between the hair and the heat from the tools, thus minimizing the damage.
  • Consider using ionic thermal products as these allow the water molecules to deeply penetrate into the hair shaft, thus re-hydrating the hair.
  • Another cause for dry hair is excessive shampooing and under conditioning. Too often, we wash our hair with chemical laden shampoos almost every day of the week. This leads excessive natural oil loss from the hair. The shampoo strips the dirt and grease along with the natural oil. To retain the moisture, a diligent use of a good conditioner is necessary.
  • The solution to this issue is to use a shampoo that is specifically designed for dry hair. These cream based shampoos help in retaining moisture.
  • Rather than washing your hair daily, do it only twice or thrice a week to maintain a healthy scalp, without over drying.
  • Use a good conditioner after every shampoo. This helps in locking the moisture washed away by shampoos. On days when your hair feels dry but you cannot shampoo, just wash with plain conditioner and you are good to go.
  • Avoid using too much of chemicals on your hair. Colours, perming, straightening and nay another chemical treatment creates havoc to the hair structure.
  • Instead, choose ammonia free colour that are demi-permanent colouring solutions for hair.
  • Try the bayalage technique for highlighting, if you want to go for one. This ensures that the highlights are done only on the mid length and ends of hair rather than near the roots. These are more forgiving to dry hair.
  • Many non-chemical procedures for straightening and curling the hair have come in the market. Explore these options to retain moisture.
  • Too much exposure to sun, wind, chlorine-rich water or salt water can dry the hair.
  • If you have to spend time outside, try covering your hair with a small scarf or a trendy hat.
  • Just like our skin, our hair needs UV protection too. Apply a generous amount of leave in UV conditioner.
  • Before plunging into the pool, apply a thick layer of heavy cream conditioner and cover with a cap, to waterproof your hair.
  • Harsh and drier weathers call for heavy conditioners and weekly deep conditioning treatments.
  • The wrong choice of brushing and wrong brushing technique can cause your hair dryer.
  • Never brush hair when wet since it is at its weakest.
  • Opt for wide-toothed comb and gently work from top to bottom, to detangle. Use a good boar bristle brush to distribute the natural oils through dry hair.
  • There is a lot you can do to moisturise your curly or thick course hair. Apply a good amount of water and spray on conditioner mixture to your damp hair. To seal in the moisture, apply a rich conditioner oil or serum.
  • Before any heat styling, apply a leave-in or a heat protective formula.
  • Go for weekly hot oil or deep conditioning treatment to give relaxation time to your hair.
  • Daily supplements of vitamins rich in folic acid, B vitamins, sulphur, magnesium, beta-carotene, silica, and zinc are essential for healthy hair.

These simple tips can give you a shiny mane without drying out woes.
