Tips on a Nighttime Routine for Healthy Hair

 

Waking up with beautiful hair is a dream of just about every female. Just like our skin, our hair defines our beauty.

Did you know that having healthy, lustrous hair is easily obtainable? There are plenty of things you can do in the comfort of your home.

Here are a few tips you can do each night to help you achieve the beautiful, healthy hair you dream of.

Oiling

Whether you travel a lot or you are a stay at the home person, your hair goes through a lot during the day. As a result, your hair can lose  moisture and get damage over time. Just like your skin,  your hair needs a little pampering and care every day. Before you go to bed deep condition your hair with your favorite natural oil and wash it out with a gentle shampoo in the morning. Makes sure to massage your scalp, hair tips, and hair roots to provide maximum moisture.

Applying a Hair Serum

This is an alternative to the oiling process. Apply a hair serum before going to bed. Serums offer a protective layer to the hair and helps your hair to get strong. Serums are good for treating dry, frizzy hair. Don’t apply hair serum to your roots because it can make your hair look greasy.

Apply a Weekly Hair Mask

A weekly hair mask can do wonders for your hair. There are plenty available on the market or you can make one yourself using equal portions of coconut oil, yogurt, and fuller’s earth. Simply mix all of the ingredients together to form a paste and apply it to your hair. Leave it on for 1-2 hours then wash off with a hair cleanser.  Alternately, you can even apply aloe vera gel on your hair once in a week. Right after the first application, your hair will look shiny, healthy, and feel soft to the touch.

Comb and Detangle Your Hair

If you wish to wake up with beautiful hair in the morning, comb your hair with a brush from roots to the tip and detangle every strand. This will not only relax your scalp but also make sure your hair is detangled, which might have occurred during the day. Even if you are seriously exhausted, this is an important step that you cannot afford to miss.

Prepare Your Bed for Healthy Hair

Your bed that can help promote healthy hair. It is essential that you have a clean, dirt free bed. Check for your pillow case and if possible, change your pillow covers every day. Silk pillow covers can reduce tangling and damaging your hair.

Tie Your Hair to a Loose Braid or Loose Bun

If possible, tie your hair into a loose bun or braid before going to bed. This will help reduce tangles. In addition it will reduce friction on your hair which can cause split ends and breakage.

Make sure the bun or braid is loose. You don’t want to make it too tight because it can be uncomfortable and make the roots sore.

Cover Your Head if You Have Long Hair

If you have long hair you might wan to consider covering your hair in a muslin or silk cloth that stays on your hair the entire night. This can help prevent hair damage and split ends when you sleep. It can also help your hair retain it’s volume.

Sleeping on Damp Hair can Result in Severe Damage

Don’t go to bed with damp or wet hair. It will cause your hair to get tangled and promote split ends and breakage.

Try to let your hair air dry fully before bed. If need be use a hair dryer to get rid of any additional dampness that might be left.

Apply Vitamin E Topically if required

Did you know that Vitamin E is essential for healthy hair and skin? If you don’t get enough Vitamin E in your diet you can take supplements (check with your doctor first). You can also purchase Vitamin E capsules to use on your hair topically. Simply squeeze the serum out of the capsule and apply it directly to your hair. Leave it on over night and then wash your hair in the morning.

If you follow these easy steps you can have gorgeous, healthy hair.

Check out EndureLash, an all-natural makeup removing cleansing cloth

 

I’m going to say something that many women might gasp at – I am OK with going out of my home “au natural,” meaning I’m OK with going out in public with little to no make up on.

As a teen and young adult I wouldn’t be caught dead out of the house without a “full face” on. Back then I was into cover ups, foundations, eye shadow, blush… the works. It wasn’t until I became a mom that I learned to embrace the “less is more” theory. When you have an infant or toddler you know that finding the time to do your make up right is easier said than done.

These days I have plenty of time to spend putting on make up, but I choose not to. I just use a little foundation (just to cover up the uneven spots), powder, mascara and a wee bit of eye liner. If I’m going out (party, dinner…) I’ll do up my face some more (blush, eye shadow…).

I don’t really like the fee of make up on my face. I prefer my face to feel fresh and clean – like it does when you step out of the shower.

Me how I normally look and me all done up.

The moment I get home from work I go straight to the bathroom to wash off my make up.

Sometimes washing off the eye make up (liner, mascara) is not that easy. It smudges and gets all over the place. I also don’t like using regular face wash near my eyes. I tend to get it IN my eyes and that burns and stings. I don’t like when that happens. For that reason I am extremely careful about using face cleaner around my eyes.

About a month ago I was introduced so something called EndureLash. EndureLash is a product developed for those who wear lash extensions. It helps to keep your extensions in shape.

I don’t use lash extensions (I didn’t even know there was such a thing).

The company also sells an organic eye make up remover. This product was of interest to me. I like that it’s organic and I like that it minimizes the risk of me getting facial cleanser in my eyes.

Here is what the brand (EndureLash) has to say about the Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth.

Made with Organic Bamboo. With or without eyelash extensions, our EndureLash® Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloths are a safe, hypoallergenic tool to help you safely cleanse the delicate skin around your eyes — using only warm water. You will no longer need harsh chemicals, cotton rounds, disposable wipes, or makeup sponges that can harbor bacteria. EndureLash® Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloths provide a better, more hygienic way to remove eye makeup.

I was sent one to review.

Using the cloth is easy. Simply run it under warm water, then gently use it to wipe around your eyes to remove eye shadow, make up, eye liner and even mascara.

I found the cloth easy to work with and it gets the job done.

I don’t use waterproof mascara, so I don’t know how well it works with that, but for regular mascara and eye liner the cloth does a great job of washing it off.

Organic cloth and handy travel/storage bag.

Be careful NOT to scrub or pull on your skin. The eye area is very delicate. Just use the cloth gently.

I used to use a regular wash cloth to remove eye make up, but this cloth is much softer.

After I am done I rinse it out with very warm/hot water and hang it up to dry. When someone in my family does the laundry I ask them to toss the EndureLash cloth into the wash. So far it washes/dries very well.

I like that this is reusable, so I don’t have to waste money on cleansing clothes. I also like that I can remove make up without a face wash and the risk of getting it in my eyes.

This is also great to take on the go with you (gym, vacation, work…) so that you can remove your make up whenever you need to without face wash.

If you are interested in learning more about the EndureLash® Organic Eye Makeup Removal Cloth, visit EndureLash.com. You can also check them out on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Their links are found on the bottom left of their website.

What do you think about EndureLash’s eye make up removal cloth? Does it sound like a product you need in your life? Feel free to share your thoughts.

NEW Skin Healing Masks from Arbonne

 

I am not one to wear a lot of make up, but I feel the need to put on “my face” whenever I leave the house. If I’m just running a few quick errands I’ll go without any make up on. But if I am going to work our someplace a bit more “populated” (mall, ballpark, movies…) I’ll make sure my make up is on.

The reason why I am not a huge fan of a lot of make up is that I don’t like the way it makes my skin feel. I don’t like feeling “heavy” or like there is something resting on top of my skin. I prefer the feeling of fresh, clean skin – the way your face feels when you step out of the shower.

When I am not wearing make up I like to take care of my skin. The older I get the more little “imperfections” I am noticing. I also notice that my skin is not as bright and healthy looking as it once was. It seems more washed out and dull.

Recently I was sent some face masks from Arbonne to try out. I am a fan of beauty products, especially anything that can help to restore my skin to the way it was (subtle, glowing, smooth…). I am also a fan of the Arbonne brand. I’ve used a few of their products over the years and I have always been pleased with them.

I was sent the following products to review.

NEW! Arbonne Rescue & Renew Detox Mask

This creamy French pink clay formula cleanses to draw out impurities from the skin’s surface like a magnet, resulting in smaller-looking pores. Utilizing an oil-pulling technology with 5 self-neutralizing acids to help clarify and brighten skin’s appearance, the mask transitions from wet to dry to visibly show where excess sebum is drawn out. Balanced out with hydrating rosemary oil so your skin is never stripped of moisture.

I like that this mask dries to let you know when it’s time to remove it.

I have found that my skin feels less greasy/oily when using this mask. Since I don’t wear a lot of make up during the summer months, and it’s always hot, my skin tends to get oily – more so than other times of the years. I am finding less oil in my “T-Zone” (forehead, nose, chin) when I use this mask.

My skin can be sensitive at times too and I have not had any issues using this mask after the first few times. The first few times my face felt tingly and it was a bit red, but the more I used it the more I grew accustomed to it. Now it’s not a problem anymore.

I’m not fond of the scent, but you only have to deal with it for about 10-15 minutes until the mask dries and you can remove it.

This comes in a large tube and you’ll get a lot of use out of it.

NEW! Arbonne RE9 Advanced Cellular Renewal Mask

Pineapple and papaya enzymes in this mask work together to gently remove dead skin cells to minimize the look of pores and improve the appearance of skin tone revealing your healthiest-looking complexion. Sustainable orange stem cells help to improve the appearance of skin radiance, elasticity, firmness and texture while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and conditioning the skin.

This mask is more of lotion than a typical mask. You apply it to your skin for around 5 minutes then wash it off. You don’t want for it to dry like the other mask.

This mask has more of a typical lotion scent to it. It’s subtle and didn’t bother me at all.

So far I haven’t noticed any visible changes in my skin. It’s possible it has to be used for a longer amount of time than what I have used it thus far.

It does make my skin feel soft after I wash it off. You use it on clean skin and when you remove it your skin continues to feel freshly cleaned. There is no residue.

This mask does make my cheeks a bit red after using it, but the redness goes away in about a half hour (give or take) after washing it off. Since I do this at night before bed it’s not a big deal.

It does come with pretty packaging, much prettier than the other two masks.

Arbonne Clear Future Soothing Overnight Mask 

This lightweight skin clearing mask is formulated with exopolysaccharide, derived from marine algae, helps mattify skin and control sebum by absorbing it at the skin’s surface. Prebiotics help condition and moisturize skin while preventing impurities from settling into and clogging pores.

I have not given this mask a try… yet. Since I have been using the other two masks I didn’t want to throw this one into the mix, then it would be hard to get a good sense of how well this one works.

I like that is absorbs and controls the oil on your skin. As I mentioned earlier I have an issue with that.

With this mask you need to leave it on overnight and rinse it off in the morning. I’m not too keen on the idea of leaving something on my face all night, but I am willing to give it a try if the results are beautifully moisturized, non-oil skin.

All three products are available on the Arbonne website, Arbonne.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All of their link are found at the bottom right of thier website.

Are you a fan of Arboone? Do you have a favorite product?

10 Ways stress is written all over your face

 

According to Dr. Sanam Hafeez Psy. D, Colombia University Professor and Founder of Comprehensive Consultation Psychological Services in New York City; stress is written all over our face and can result in looking years older when stressed for prolonged periods of time.

Dr. Hafeez whose expertise is in understanding neural pathways as they respond to anxiety, stress and trauma explains that how we think directly impacts how we age and how youthful we appear. The routine stressors in our lives really impact how fast or slow we age. When stressed, we see it in our skin tone, texture, elasticity, and over all glow.

“When someone is under stress they can appear up to 5 years older, 10 years if they don’t manage stress or make changes to their lives. Stressful relationships and careers age people. I have seen patients end relationships or get new jobs and look 10 years younger within days.  People are spending money on creams, facials and cosmetic procedures but if the stress is still there it will still show in their face,” offers Dr. Hafeez.

Here are Ways Stress is Written All Over Your Face

You have dark circles.

Stress results in blood flow to main organs plus capillaries under eyes are fragile and break under stress leaving your face looking sallow and tired. Dark circles seem more apparent.

Mini-Menopause

The jury is still out on exactly how or if this is possible, but it appears that the constant flow of cortisol that goes along with chronic stress causes a dip in estrogen, one that mimics, on a smaller scale, the dip that occurs during menopause. Less estrogen means less collagen and less moisture. So, while estrogen levels may not drop enough to shut down your period, stress may make them dip enough to make your skin look dull and dry.

You notice more wrinkles. 

Life’s stress due to divorce, death of loved one, job-loss, financial concerns; impacts our brain chemistry. When we feel sad or anxious, are crying or not sleeping well it’s common to see deeper lines around the middle of the eyes, forehead, under eye area and mouth.

You itch, flake and even have hives.  

Stress leads to inflammation which may lead to rashes, rosacea, eczema flare ups and changes in skin moisture.

People ask if you’re feeling okay. 

When the Starbucks barista or guy at the dry cleaners asks if you’re feeling okay, pay attention. These people may not know the details of your life but they know how you look because they see you quickly. 

Under-Eye Bags.

Tomorrow’s to-do list can weigh on your mind, keeping you from getting enough beauty sleep. This can cause fluid to pool below your lower eyelid area, and what you end up with is a puffy mess in the a.m. Stomach sleepers, bad news: You can expect the puffiness of your under-eye bags to be even worse because of gravity.

Increased jaw size – Heavy jaw

Grinding teeth and clenching of the jaw are common symptoms of stress. Unfortunately, these habits can cause the jaw muscles to work overtime. This can result not only in damaged teeth, but also a heavier than usual jawline, as the muscles become larger with the grinding action.

Hair Loss

Stress can cause sudden hair loss by literally flipping the switch on the hair follicle’s growth stage from an active to a resting phase. Once the follicle enters this resting phase prematurely, it stays there for about three months, after which time a large amount of hair will be shed. When you experience an overall shedding of hair, you must cast back a few months to find the trigger. Rest assured that in most women, this hair will grow back.

Adult Acne

Acne isn’t just for hormonally crazed teenagers. Many adults can’t seem to outgrow it because of stress hormones. What makes it worse is that tense people often can’t leave pimples alone. Squeezing, poking and picking at them becomes an almost obsessive way to release tension, but it also makes breakouts worse, exacerbating the inflammatory response, and you’re left feeling a bit more stressed. So no picking.

Hormonal Mood Swings

There is a lot of interaction between hormone physiology and mood that works both ways. Our mood can impact our physiology, and our physiology can influence the balance of our hormones. If stress can sit at the top of a cascade of events that lead to undesirable hormonal changes in the body (like those that trigger insomnia, insatiable hunger and weight gain, and collagen breakdown), then what we want to do is find ways to gain the upper hand on our stress level and ensure that we keep all those hormones in check.

According to Dr. Hafeez, “The good news is that we can get to the root cause of our stress and manage it. When you notice changes in your facial appearance take inventory of what is going on in your life and what may be stressing you out. Simple things like sitting quietly for 10 minutes focusing on breathing, writing in a journal, exercising or taking a walk outside, reading, baking, painting, listening to music and reaching for an activity that takes focus off the stress is helpful. If you find yourself reverting back to the stressful issue consider therapy. Clearly there is a connection between how we look and how we feel and think.”

About the author:

Dr. Hafeez provides neuropsychological educational and developmental evaluations in her practice.  She also works with children and adults who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), learning disabilities, autism, attention and memory problems, trauma and brain injury, abuse, childhood development and psychopathology (bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, etc…) In addition, Dr. Hafeez serves as a medical expert and expert witness by providing full evaluations and witness testimony to law firms and courts.

Check out the new Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion

 

Our daughter not exactly enjoying winter.

There are many reasons why some people dread the winter months – snow, shoveling snow, driving in snow, frigid temperatures and the spread of colds and the flu are just a few reasons. For me, I can’t stay how the indoor air dries out my skin. That is the worst!

My hands get especially dry in the winter, so much so that they split open and bleed. Ouch!

I work with young children, so I wash my hands many time per day when I am at work. Washing your hand often can also cause your skin to get dry. I try to apply lotion a much as possible, but I don’t often have the time.

I have no control over the hand soap at school where I work. I have to use what is provided to me. When I’m at home I prefer to use soap that has some kind of a lotion aspect to it, to provide my skin with the extra lotion and moisturizing that it needs.

Soft Soap recently sent me some products from their newest product line, Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion. Their new unique formula is made with a touch of lotion to lock in moisture and leave your hands feeling clean and soft. This is exactly the type of soap that I need in my home to help keep my hands moisturized and prevent them from getting so dry that they split and crack.

Soft Soap sent me three bottles of their new hand soap. It’s available in three lovely scents – Orchid and Coconut Milk, Aloe Water and Lime, and Shea and Coconut Butter.

I enjoy using scented products. I found these three products to smell very nice. Shea & Coconut Butter reminded me of spring time. It has as clean, fresh scent. It does have a touch of coconut scent to it, but not too strong. The Aloe Water & Lime also had a clean, fresh, spring-like scent to it. My favorite scent of the three is the Orchid & Coconut Milk. It has a more floral scent than the other two. It’s also clean, fresh and spring-like, but this scent stood out to me the most. The scent even lingers on your skin for a little bit after you use the soap.

I placed one bottle in the bathroom and another in the kitchen (the third bottle I am saving for when one of the other two runs out).

We’ve been using the soap for a couple of weeks now and I have to say that I do notice a difference. From the first time I used it I could feel that it has a soothing effect on the skin. My hands don’t feel dry and tight after I use it (like they do with the soap at work). They feel like I washed my hands and applied lotion to them, but I did it all in one step (simply washing my hands).

A little goes a long way with this soap. One pump is all you need. My kids are used to using multiple pumps with other soaps that we’ve used in the past. I have to keep reminding them to use one pump, otherwise we’ll finish up a bottle in a day or two.

When you wash your hands with Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion you’ll notice that the soap doesn’t lather like other soaps. It has a more creamy texture and appearance to it. I have yet to see any soap bubbles come from it. I think that has to do with the lotion that is added in with it.

So far I am very impressed by the Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion. I will definitely be purchasing this again once the bottles I received to review run out. You can find it where ever liquid hand soaps are sold. I would also purchase this year round and not only in the dry, winter months. I enjoy the fragrances and I like how my hands feel after I use it.

If you would like more information about Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion and other Soft Soap products, visit SoftSoap.com.

Have you had the opportunity to try out the new Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion yet? Which fragrance sounds most appealing to you?
