Hair Care Management and Treatment

Although head lice are a common problem in families with school-aged children a new national survey conducted in the US by Harris Poll on behalf of Sanofi Pasteur from Aug 28 to Sep 11, 2013 on 2000 moms aged 25 and older reveals that 60% of moms, including 85% of those who have experienced head lice in their household as an adult still appear to be confused when it comes to common myths about head lice.

I enjoyed using the Garnier Fructis Shampoo, Conditioner, Split Ends Bandage, and Strength Reconstructing Butter. I liked that the products did not have a strong smell, and after using the products the hair felt soft.

Importance of Vitamins and Your Chance to Win $50 Worth of Coupons for Webber Naturals

Recently, I talked about the importance of Vitamin D for those of us living in Canada, where in winter the UV rays that make vitamin D does not reach us. Research shows that the essential vitamin D3 is naturally made by the skin on a sunny day is essential for calcium and phosphorus absorption to build healthy teeth and bones. This reminded me the importance of giving supplement to my children, as I do not think they are getting much from regular food.

Adding A Little Sunshine

We in Canada do not get as much vitamin D in the winter because the sun's angle changes, and the UV rays that make vitamin D does not reach us. It is known that without vitamin D, calcium levels in our blood drops. To maintain the calcium level our bodies borrow needed calcium from our bones. This can cause the bones to become fragile. Deficiency in vitamin D also has other negative impacts to our health.  We can get vitamin D naturally by eating food such as fatty fish, egg yolk, fortified milk.

New Year’s Boutique Start Something New

The beginning of a New Year is when most of us make new resolutions to start or continue things that benefit us. I started off this year with a few resolutions and one of them is to learn about and concentrate on having a healthier lifestyle. To assist me with this process, I checked out a few colourful and informative DK books that I think everyone should read and benefit from.

Overcoming Sensitive Teeth Using Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief

Having to deal with sensitive teeth is difficult especially when I have to avoid my favourite types of food. I find that when the weather gets chilly, my teeth get a little more sensitive. I avoid sour food like pickles, really sweet food and cold pop, as it bothers my teeth and brings back the sensitivity. I am glad I took the challenge to test the Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief.

Dermatologists worldwide trust Anthelios sunscreen from La Roche-Posay. This product provides advanced formulations in UVA and UVB protection. I prefer that my children and we wear sunscreen in the summer before heading outdoors, especially when the weather is hot and sunny.

Freshening up our indoor air

I believe having fresh comfortable air in our indoor space is very important, so we can stay healthy. It is important to have fresh breathable air in our home especially when the weather gets really hot. Having a unit like this 3-in-1 portable air-conditioner, fan and dehumidifier will be very helpful, as it helps circulate the indoor air.

O’Keeffe will help heal the cracks and dry skin on our hands and feet

Usually during this time of the year when we are out in the garden I sometimes like using my bare-hands to dig into the soil and plant, which has side effects of ruining my skin. Many people I know have issues with either their hand or feet drying or splitting when the weather is extremely cold or too hot, and look for a solution that works instantly. 
We came across this skin care cream that helps to heal extremely split cracks and dry skin in our hands and feet.

Lipikar Baume helps heal sensitive dry skin

I have been using Lipikar Baume AP for my son, ever since his doctor recommended us to use it on him. I started using it since the beginning of winter this year because he was getting eczema rashes because of the dryness in the air.  Using this cream made the rash go away as well as helped to prevent from the rash coming back. I am glad that Lipikar made the rash go away as I was reluctant to use any harsh medications on his skin.

Krill Oil is a step in the right direction to be healthy

My husband has always believed that it is healthy to take fish oil.  However, we couldn't find something that was free of animal derived gelatin.  When I saw the Krill Oil from Everest Nutrition made with fish gelatin, my husband was very excited and wanted to give it a try.  He has been using the pure cold pressed Antarctic Krill Oil for a few months now, and believes that it is making a difference.  I am convinced as well and want to give it a try soon.  He had joint pains on his knee, which he thinks has gone away due to his intake of Krill Oil with a combination of other healthy lifestyle changes. 

Many people believe that the Omega-3 fatty acids and Astaxanthin found in the Krill Oil helps nourishes our body by leading it to have a stronger heart, pain-free joints, a better mood, mental concentration, lower cholesterol, easier menstruation and overall better health. 
It is recommended to take 2 capliques everyday with breakfast for adults and 1 caplique for children over the age of 6 years. 
This Everest Nutrition Krill Oil is harvested from the pure waters of Antarctica.  It is guaranteed to be fresh because it is made in FDA approved facilities that adhere to strict GMP standards.  The Krill Oil lasts longer because it is in a caplique instead of in a softgel, so it reduces fish burps and bad breath that is associated with fish oil.
This Krill Oil from Everest Nutrition is sustainable because it is harvested by following regulations set by the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).  The CCAMLR is dedicated to conserving the oceans ecosystem. 

Tips of becoming healthier:
  • Eat right and exercise.
  • Avoid “deadly sins” of smoking, alcohol, too much coffee and other things that can harm your body.
  • Find time to relax.
  • Get adequate sleep.
  • Using these tips and having Krill Oil supplements can help us stay healthy.

Eye examinations and Eyes cream shades

It is recommend by paediatricians to do an annual eye exam for our children, and it is a good idea to put this on the "back to school" checklist.  Healthy eyes are an important part of children's development.  Most optometrists check and do routine yearly exams for children over the age of 3, as soon as they can recognize pictures and tell.

According to the IRIS optometrists, since the provincial health plan covers eye examination for children they recommend us to take our children young as one for an annual eye examination until they are twenty years; after 20 years it is recommended every 1 to 2 years.   

It is also important for us, as parents to make sure our children's eyes are protected from UVA and UVB rays at an early age.  Eyes cream shades has a cute quality collection of shades for children over the age of 6 months.

This Sporty Gradient "Blueberry Ice" sunglasses will look cool on both girls and boys.  Children will enjoy wearing this pair of sunglasses, which has a blue to clear gradient frame and light blue polycarbonate lenses.  The light and thin shatter resistant lens is perfect for young children.
Children will enjoy wearing these cool shades without a fuss because of its comfort.
I like the new sizing chart on their site, very helpful in making a decision when we get shades for children. Eyes cream shades has joined Bright Sky UV, to protect the entire family from harmful UV rays with their collection of sun wear made with Pro Tek fabric.

Lady soma

"Soma" comes from the Greek term body. Lady Soma is a product line for the body created by the formulators of Made from Earth.
Lady Soma is made in USA; FDA regulated and are under Good Manufacturing Standards.

They use ethically harvested wild products and raw ingredients grown bio-dynamically and organically. The preservatives used are natural botanical ingredients without chemicals or animal products. Some of the ingredients they use are kokum, shea, cocoa butter, psyllium husk, flax seed oil.

Their nail and skin treatment does wonders, I gave it a friend of mine who has sensitive skin, and cracked heel/ cuticles because of the weather. This product is not irritant and with repeated applications the skin feels smooth.

When I used the berry masque for the first time on my face, it felt a little tingly and painful, however it didn't feel too painful during the consequent use. It did leave the face feeling smooth. I think it is better to use it once per week.

Renewal serum has vitamins that help smooth skin. It felt good to put a drop or two of it after a face wash. It had a faint smell of roses.

They have nutritional supplements and lip balms as well. Follow their tweets and Facebook to find out more about Lady Soma.

You can order it from anywhere in the world, so go head and check it out.
