How To Improve Your Skin With Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the nutrients that are very good for your health and well-being. One of its main benefits is that it can improve the health of your skin. Let’s see how you can use Vitamin C to make your skin look younger and feel livelier.

Powerful Antioxidant

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. This is why it is very important for the skin collagen synthesis. As you probably know already, collagen is one of the main compounds that are naturally occurring in our skin. This substance is responsible for making our skin elastic and firm. As we age, the natural collagen production of the body decreases. The result is that our skin loses its firmness and its elasticity and we start developing wrinkles. This vitamin is effective in all its forms. You can take it orally to improve your immunity and to help supporting the vital functions of body. You can opt for topical applications to ameliorate various skin conditions such as acne, sunburn, and excessive dryness. For best results, you can use it in multiple forms at the same time. The only thing you need to be careful about is not to exceed the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C.

Anti-Aging Properties

The good news is that we can delay the onset of these aging signs by using a Vitamin C based serum. Applied regularly, this serum can help us maintain the elasticity and the health of our skin for longer. Its antioxidant agents will neutralize the free radicals, enabling our skin to maintain its healthy collagen levels. Vitamin C will penetrate the superior layers of the skin, wiping off fine lines and wrinkles and nourishing the epithelial cells. The other effect of Vitamin C is that it can make the age spots become less obvious, making the skin look smoother and more uniform.

Moisturizing And Skin Protection

A Vitamin C based moisturizing serum can also help maintaining the proper hydration of the skin. Since we all need to use a good moisturizer, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t choose a Vitamin C serum for this purpose and enjoy its other benefits, as well. Furthermore, this type of product is good for persons with dry or sensitive skin, as it help preventing irritations.

Apparently, Vitamin C serums can also be effective in alleviating acne. Although this solution may not heal the condition that causes acne in the first place, it can help sufferers prevent severe flare-ups. In case of severe acne, you should consider discussion with your doctor the intention of using a Vitamin C based serum on your affected skin. It’s always a good idea to have a healthcare professional watching over you whenever you try something new. Although there aren’t any known cases of adverse reactions or side effects, a bit of caution can take you a long way.

Whatever purpose you want to use a Vitamin C serum for, make sure you apply it daily for at least a couple of weeks. This is a long-term remedy against the effects of aging, so you can’t expect instant results.

Dry Winter Skin? Here are 5 Tips To Organically Moisturize

 

 

Winter can be harsh! And we’re not just talking about the struggle of waking up in total darkness. The icy cold, yet dry winter air can wreak havoc on your skin. Seeking solace indoors doesn’t help much either since all that artificial air has similar drying effects on your skin.

But you can’t exactly hibernate the season away can you? In addition to willing spring to bloom sooner rather than later, here are five organic methods you can use to get you through winter dry skin.

Eat organic foods and hydrate

Who doesn’t love savoury, warming scalloped potatoes with a piece of salmon, or how about a sweet apple pie in the winter? Delicious, yet unfortunately potatoes and apples happen to be part of the EWG’s Dirty Dozen, and salmon if not wild caught and organic, can pose major risks to your health. We could go on and on about what to eat and what not to eat here, but your best bet if you want to avoid consuming unnecessary GMO’s, and pesticides in your food, is to simply buy organic! Keeping hydrated throughout the day is also important during the winter in order to prevent dry skin. You could opt for warm teas, or broths if you’re feeling extra chilly!

Opt for an organic moisturizer

When dry, itchy skin sets in, it can be tempting to run to the drug store and pick up the first moisturizer promising relief! These conventional moisturizers are typically packed in chemicals that do nothing for your skin, and may even end up drying it out even more. The reason for these additives is simply to speed up production, increase shelf life, and give you a cheaper product. But your health isn’t worth the cheapest option is it? Luckily, there are tons of organic moisturizers made with only the best of the best ingredients available these days. It just takes a bit of searching and you’ll find affordable moisturizers like Christina Moss Organic Facial Moisturizer, Avalon Organics Oil-Free Moisturizer, and Nourish Organic Face Cream.

For deeper hydration, try an organic oil or serum

Sometimes you need something a little extra for dry skin which is where organic oils and serums come in handy. Loaded with active botanicals that penetrate deep within your skin and deliver nourishing plant-actives at the cellular level, oils and serums perform overtime as they not only hydrate, but also stimulate collagen, brighten and protect the skin. Sanre is just one brand delivering on the promise of effective organic, rejuvenating skin serum.

Always wear an organic SPF

Just because the snow and ice may be taking center stage this season, doesn’t give you a reason to stop wearing SPF. In fact, with 80% of UV rays reaching the ground, your chances of getting sunburns in the winter may increase if you’re not diligent. Just look at snowboarders and skiers who spend all day on the hills, they return with some pretty gnarly burns! Avoid this by applying an organic SPF stick from 100% Pure, or Nature’s Brand. For the kids, Badger has a safe broad spectrum SPF 30 option.

Quitting Smoking: Getting Your New Year’s Resolution Back On Track

When it comes to New Year’s Resolutions most people state that they are either going to lose weight or give up smoking. Unfortunately, many seem to fail on their quest to achieve one of these goals. This blog post deals with the latter; smoking. Let’s be realistic; it is never easy to give up an addictive habit. However, if you read on you will discover some of the best ways to give up smoking and these will give you the best chance of getting your New Year’s Resolution back on track…

https://pixabay.com/en/smoke-background-artwork-swirl-69124/

1. Make a quit smoking timeline

If you are going to kick this habit once and for all you need to develop a quit smoking timeline. One of the main reasons why so many people revert back to nicotine is because they are unrealistic in their expectations. They believe that they can go from smoking ‘x’ amount a day to smoking literally nothing at all. You need to gradually bring yourself off the cigarettes. Set yourself a quit date several weeks or even months from now. Between now and this quit date you are going to pick milestone dates. On these dates, you will reduce your amount of cigarette intake. Therefore, when it comes to your quit date the transition will be a lot easier for you.

2. Find a distraction

You are going to experience cravings. It is how you deal with them that matters. Identify when you are most likely to crave a cigarette and then find a distraction. This is a great coping mechanism. For example, do you usually light up when somebody calls you for a chat on your phone? If so, make sure your hands are preoccupied. Doodle on a piece of paper. If you experience a craving you could go for a walk, read a book, watch a television program, have a bath, play a computer game, and so on and so forth. Or, why not make a cup of coffee and enjoy that instead? But make sure it is ethically sourced speciality coffee! But don’t just sit there and make it hard for yourself.

3. Change your diet

There are some foods and drinks that make cigarettes seem more appealing whilst there are others that make them taste terrible. Studies showcase that meat makes the thought of lighting up much more appealing. However, fruit, vegetables, and even cheese can make them taste more disgusting. You should also try and limit your intake of tea, fizzy drinks, and alcohol.

4. Take all of the support you can get

Tell your friends and family that you are planning on giving up smoking. Express how determined you are to quit and that you would appreciate their support. Make sure no one offers you a cigarette either. You should also consider joining an online forum. There are many dedicated to those that are trying to kick the habit. You will be able to give and receive support. Thus, whenever you are having a bad day, others in your position will provide some great tips on how to cope.

5. Throw away all of your cigarettes

Last but not least, make sure you chuck away each and every last cigarette you have in your home. Keeping an emergency cigarette never works!

What to Expect from Professional Teeth Whitening

 

 

With the hectic pace of modern life, it is often easy to find ourselves eating more sugar than we would like. This can have a negative effect on the long-term health of our teeth, as well as staining the enamel, turning it yellow, over long periods. However, even if you are vigilant about avoiding too many sugars, you may still find the staining effect comes from other sources such as tea, coffee, wine or tobacco, which are an integral part of many people’s day.

Seeing your teeth like this can have a serious effect on your happiness and, if you feel self-conscious about them, this can lead to lower levels of self-confidence and to low self-esteem. It is, however, possible and increasingly easy to combat this and avoid any such concerns through professional teeth whitening. This process can be done in a number of ways.

Teeth whitening options

There are two ways you can have your teeth whitened. The first is with bleaching gel, which takes between two and four weeks to achieve, and the second is through laser whitening, which can be completed in one hour-long session. Whichever method you choose it will be necessary to talk it over thoroughly with your dentist beforehand, and visit them afterwards. If you are not certain that you want to undertake the procedure it is often wise to get a second opinion. Many leading practices such as Ten Dental offer both options and run on referral systems where your own dentist will likely refer you to the leading specialist practice in your area.

To have your teeth whitened with bleaching gel you arrange an appointment where the registered dentist takes an impression of your teeth. Using this impression, a mouthguard is fitted, which can allow you to apply the gel to your teeth while protecting them from the bleaching agent. Your dentist will then give you instructions on when to wear the mouth guard and for how long. Most mouthguards are meant to be worn for fairly short periods of time, over a period of two to four weeks, but some models can also be worn for eight hours at a time, shortening the period you need to wear the mouthguard to one week.

The laser whitening option, which is more efficient, involves a bleaching agent being painted on to your teeth, after which a powerful laser is shone on them which activates the whitening effect. At an hour in length this can be a more convenient option, but you should always check with your dentist which option is best for you.

Keep Aware!

Teeth whitening operations can be carried out by any professional dentist registered with the General Dental Council. It is illegal to offer teeth whitening without an accredited dentist, such as at a beauty salon with no dentist present. If there is not a medical need, for example a dead nerve ending, the operation will not be covered on the NHS as it is considered cosmetic.

Home tooth whitening kits are available but can be dangerous for your mouth if the mouthguard does not fit correctly and it is allowed to leak. This can lead to sensitive teeth, as the gel used can damages the gums around them.

Choosing the Perfect Location for Your New Salon

 

 

Let’s face it, whilst opening a salon can be a dream of many a beautician around the world, it isn’t a decision that can be taken lightly. This means that you need to have a business plan ready to be implemented before you can even think of opening your doors. The perfect location is key to the success of any beauty business or salon, so here are some ideas about how you can ensure that your store’s location is in the best place to attract new clients.

Commercialised areas

If you are lucky to find a location within a large town or city, then this sort of location can really assist in boosting the popularity of your salon. Be sure to research into which businesses are near your intended location. Not only can a busy shopping district attract customers into your salon, but if you meet with the owners of other district businesses then this can form, as Evan Powell, co-founder of Key Transitions, has said ‘strategic alliances with businesses related to but not directly competing in our space who can refer customers.’ Not only that, but they may have fantastic advice based on their own start up experience, such as which salon insurance or marketing plans worked out best for their business. Capitalise on their experience, as this will provide some helpful points on how to expand your own business.

Is your salon in sight?

When it comes to your salon, the last thing you want is for it to follow the old saying “out of sight, out of mind.” Instead, you want it to be visible to the general public so that it is not only easy to get to, but it could also generate its own advertising, as its opening will increase the intrigue of your future clients. The best visibility from your salon can be from high traffic roads, especially if it is near busy commuter routes. However, remember that you also need to have a location that is exposed to pedestrians, cyclists and cars. That way, commuters will always give your salon the attention it deserves.

How big is your store?

Not only do you want your salon to look attractive to your clientele, you need to ensure that its location has an adequate holding space so that your customers and employees can move around comfortably without bumping into people. A small space can lead to the feeling of claustrophobia, so be sure to consider your location’s size capacity. Whilst you may not want to opt for a large salon, a medium salon would provide you enough room to tend to customers, and give you a hidden area to place your products.

Is there a nearby parking lot?

Whilst this may seem like a smaller issue when choosing a location, it can seriously affect any potential commuting customers and employees. If there is a nearby parking lot, whether it is right next to your store or nearby, then this will allow your clients an easier way of getting to your salon than taking the bus. It will also mean that there is no time limit on how long they can actually spend within your salon.

Subtle Ways to Improve the Client Experience at Your Salon

 

 

When it comes to client experience at your salon everything counts – no matter how small it may seem. Creating lifelong, loyal customers goes beyond giving clients the best haircut or treatment with 60% of people often paying more for a better experience.

Adding value to your client experience doesn’t need to involve drastic changes, in fact this could alter what your clients love most about you. Making subtle and beneficial changes are a great way to refresh the client experience.

Never miss a greeting

It might seem simple, but it’s important to greet your clients as soon as they walk in the door of your salon. Clients should be greeted within eight seconds of their arrival, otherwise their experience can already be dampened.

Whoever is greeting your clients must be able to talk to clients in the right tone every time. Greeters can even be like friends to clients – remembering past conversations can go a long way in improving a client’s experience in your salon.

Refreshments

It is unusual to find a salon who don’t offer their customers a beverage, but you can go that little bit further. Instead of offering the bog standard, why not offer a variety of teas such as green tea or jasmine tea?

If your budget allows it, you might want to invest in a coffee machine, which your beauty salon insurance could also cover. A coffee machine will allow you to offer a wider range of coffees such as lattes or espressos.

Taking the time to explain treatments to your clients or guiding them on which treatments or products would be best suited to them can go a long way. Clients will feel valued and personalisation goes a long way to enrich their experience.

Contactless payments

Adding contactless payments to your salon can also improve the client experience. Payzone reported that more and more comfortable using tap and pay, with some even spending more as they don’t need to rely on having enough cash.

Contactless payments are another way to make your salon available and provide convenience to your customers. Having this option also caters to customers who prefer to use different payment methods and could easily help in situations where customers are short of cash.

Reward your clients

Your client don’t want to feel like just another customer so it’s important to make them feel like they belong. This can be achieved through loyalty schemes, where customers could get a stamp with each visit and after a certain amount of stamps, they can receive a discount or a free treatment.

Introducing a hierarchy scheme can also improve the client experience for your business such as “bronze”, “silver” and “gold” members. Not only do clients feel like valued customers, they are motivated to perform actions that can level them up, helping your customer retention as well as revenue.

A Guide to Choosing the Right Uniform When Working in the Healthcare Sector

 

 

Cleanliness and hygiene is paramount in the medical and healthcare industry and this extends to your uniform. Medical uniforms that have been specially designed for the healthcare industry will protect doctors, nurses, receptionists and any other personnel from hazardous substances and spillages whilst also minimising the spread of infection.

Not only do medical uniforms have a practical function, but they also make a positive lasting impression on patients and boast professionalism. When appropriate, you can also personalise your uniforms with a logo, professional title or name as personalised embroidered workwear will increase familiarity between members of staff and patients and subsequently instil a sense of trust.

It can be tricky to decide what medical uniforms you want to use in your surgery or practice – should doctors, nurses and receptionists wear the same? Should you have a colour scheme? Should each member of staff have a different and unique uniform? Well fear not, today we explore the range of different options that are available to you.

Receptionist Uniform

Receptionists are more than likely the first face your patients will see and therefore a receptionist’s uniform should make a positive impression. For some, visiting the doctors, hospital or any other medical institution can be a frightening thought and your receptionist should wear bright coloured clothes to create an inviting atmosphere and approachable persona. If reception staff are wearing a white uniform, it could make the whole process feel clinical and impersonal and result in patients feeling uneasy. Medical professionals have a duty of care and if patients don’t feel welcome, they could end up trying to tackle their issues themselves or ignoring life-threatening problems.

Nurses Uniform

Medical nurse tunics, also commonly referred to as ‘scrubs’ have a number of benefits, the key benefit being that it protects nurses from bodily fluids, chemicals and spillages. Depending on company policy, nurses can wear colourful patterned scrubs to create an inviting and welcoming atmosphere similar to that of a receptionist’s uniform. Scrubs also make nurses easily identifiable for both patients and other medical professionals. It is of the upmost importance that a nurse’s uniform is clean and hygienic and to ensure this, scrubs must be thoroughly and rigorously cleaned using special chemicals and a high temperature machine that would damage personal and regular clothing.

Doctors Uniform

Typically, doctors have more freedom when it comes to uniforms and can choose from casual jeans and a t-shirt, to the clinical white coat, to full protective scrubs, to a full three-piece suit. Doctors may opt to wear a suit in order to stand out from other medical personnel whilst presenting themselves as professional and trustworthy towards their patients. However some doctors believe that wearing a suit makes an appointment feel more like a business meeting rather than what it is, and these doctors choose to take a more casual approach. While wearing jeans and a t-shirt may seem somewhat unprofessional, it can instead help to develop a relationship between doctor and client based on familiarity and friendliness. If a doctor wears a casual uniform it can make patients feel at ease, as if they are talking to a friend rather than a medical professional. Other doctors prefer to wear scrubs for the same reasons as nurses – to protect themselves from any bodily fluids or hazardous chemicals.

When choosing a uniform for a doctor’s surgery, hospital or any other medical institution, the most important thing to consider is that all members of staff feel comfortable in what they wear. There are no set rules on uniforms in the healthcare sector and essentially, it comes down to personal preference and the relationship you hope to build with your patients.

Questions To Ask Yourself Before Buying A Property

https://images.pexels.com/photos/6343/village-hotel-building-countryside-6343.jpg?auto=compress&cs=tinysrgb&h=350

If you have decided that the time has come to purchase your first property, there is a lot that needs to be considered. Not only do you need to consider whether you are financially ready to do so, but you must make sure you are ready to put down roots in the area in question and you need to make sure that the property is right for you. With that being said, continue reading to find out about the key questions you should ask yourself before purchasing a property. This should help you to make the right decision for you.

Is your credit score good? There is only one place to begin, and this is with your credit rating. You can easily access your credit rating for free online today, and this is something you should definitely do. This will give you a good understanding as to what sort of offer you will get when you seek a mortgage. After all, if your rating is fair, you may still get offered a mortgage, however, you won’t get offered the best rates. Therefore, you may want to work on improving your credit rating before you make a mortgage application so that you will get offered a much better deal.

Are you ready to put down roots in the area? It is important to remember that when you purchase a property, you are not just buying the bricks and mortar, you are buying into an area. This is why you need to make sure that you are ready to put down roots here. Can you see yourself living in this area for years and years to come? Are you happy with your job here? Would you be happy to send your children to school here?

Can you afford the mortgage? – There are many different costs associated with buying a property, yet there is no denying that your home loan is going to be the biggest expense. You can use a refinance calculator to find out whether or not you will be able to afford a mortgage comfortably. If you can’t, or you are not happy with the rates you have been offered, you should work on your credit score and keep saving until you feel you are in a position whereby the mortgage is right for your circumstances.

Are you making decisions based on your emotions? Emotional decisions are often where we go wrong in life. When we make decisions based more on our emotions, we end up living to regret it. The worst thing you can do is buy a property based on emotions. Yes, you may see a property that you love, but if it does not cater to your requirements, it is no good for you. It is easy to get attached to a house and convince yourself that you can compromise. But once a few years have passed by, you will regret it.

Does the home and the location provide long-term resale value? You also need to look at the financial side of things in terms of future profit. The last thing you want to do is purchase in an area that is in decline. Instead, you need to do your research regarding house prices in the area. Do not only look at historical prices, but consider the future. Are there any developments in the pipeline that could impact the resale value? After all, while historical prices are beneficial, they do not guarantee that an upward curve is going to continue.

Have you got enough money to deal with any maintenance and repairs? Unlike renting, when you buy a home, you are going to be responsible for all of the maintenance and repairs. If the boiler breaks, you need to fix it. If the shower stops working, you need to pay for it to be sorted out. You can’t give these responsibilities to someone else, which is why it is so important to make sure you have an emergency fund so that you can pay for all of these issues as and when they arise.

Do you understand your wants vs. your needs? When it comes to purchasing a property, you need to have a thorough understanding of both your wants and your needs. What sorts of things are you willing to negotiate on? What sort of things are a necessity? Before you go to start house hunting, you should have a list of all of the things that are non-negotiable. This will ensure you can search for a property with greater clarity. However, make sure you actually understand your wants and needs. For a lot of people, the lines are blurred. They think they need certain things, when, in fact, they just want it.

As you can see, there are a number of important questions you need to ask yourself before purchasing a property. If you ask all of the questions that have been mentioned above, and you give honest answers to yourself, you should be able to come to the best decision for you. After all, there is no denying that purchasing a property is a massive investment. This is not something that you should rush into. You need to ensure the property is right for you and that you can afford it, which is why the questions mentioned above are so important.
