7 Golden Rules for Natural Beauty

A lot of women use tons and tons of products to combat the signs of skin ageing and other skin issues. Some of them even spend a good amount of money to keep their skin younger-looking and radiant.

If you are one of these women,  then you know exactly how difficult getting beautiful skin can be.

Fortunately, however, there are these 7 easy tips for natural beauty you can try- all without chemicals or even expensive price tags.

1. Choose whole foods

Those fried and greasy junk foods won’t do your skin any good. In fact, aside from your skin, they can also create problems for your general health.

Diabetes and hypertension, on top of the skin breakouts,  are only few of the issues you’ll have to face if you constantly indulge in a high-salt and high-fat diet.




So, instead of dragging your grocery cart to the center of the grocery store, push it along the sides. These are the areas where you’ll see whole foods more.

Fill your grocery cart and your pantry with fresh fruits and vegetables. Turn them into delicious salads and prepare a spare pack so you won’t have any excuse to call for a pizza delivery once you get hungry.

2. Do a routine exercise

It doesn’t necessarily have to be vigorous. Even a short but frequent brisk walk in the park can help you burn some calories while purging out toxins.

Exercise has a lot of benefits not only physically, but emotionally and mentally as well.

However, despite its benefits, you should still be careful when choosing your type of exercise. High-intensity exercises, for example, can cause your body to experience stress.

Once that happens, your body will trigger several responses, including inflammation and insulin resistance. These things can lead to chronic acne.

Aside from this, you should also take caution about exercise-induced acne. Make sure to wipe off sweat right away and keep your hands and equipment clean all the time.

3. Indulge in daily meditation

Meditation is a two thousand year-old practice of introspection. It helps you be more in tune with yourself.

It also makes you more energetic and aids in your body’s cellular repair. It enhances blood flow to your organs and bring more oxygen to your cells.

As a result of these benefits, your aging process greatly slows down. You look more radiant, refreshed and glowing.

Since it can make your mind and body relax, meditation also allows you to be more conscious of your choices. It gives you time to slow down and enjoy taking care of yourself better.




As to how you should meditate, there are actually no rules. But the idea is that the more you practice it, the easier it gets for you to enter a relaxed state.

You can do this for a couple of minutes everyday, preferably in the morning. Find the best spot in your home where you can sit comfortably in silence, with our without a meditation guide.

4. Pamper yourself with a massage once in a while

There is nothing wrong with rewarding yourself with a good massage every now and then- particularly if you’ve had a rough day at work or when you’re too stressed.

A massage can improve your blood flow which means there’ll be more nourishments and oxygen that can reach your skin. It also makes toxin removal easier.

Another benefit of massage is skin tightening. So, if you want to improve your skiin’s elasticity, get rid of those wrinkles and puffiness, getting a massage is the right way to go.

It doesn’t necessarily have to involve expensive trips to the spa. In fact, with the right type of oil, you can give your skin a soothing massage each night.

5. Take supplements

Your diet alone may not be enough to give your skin all the nutrients it needs to stay young and healthy. To ensure that you give your skin the help it needs to stay glowing from the inside, you can consider taking supplements.

Fern extract, for example, can help protect your skin against the harmful UV rays while addresing inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acids, on the other hand, can regulate your skin’s oil production. It can also help delay the frustrating signs of skin aging.




6. Protect your skin against the sun’s UV rays

Exposing your unprotected skin ag skin to the sun is one of the best ways to hasten the process of skin aging. In fact, prolonged and frequent sun exposure can’t only make you look older than your actual age, but it can also predispose you to skin cancer.

Scary, isn’t it?

To save your skin, make sure you wear enough protection before heading outdoors. There are actually a lot of sun protecting products you can use, ranging from physical to chemical sunscreens.

Aside from applying products, make sure you also wear proper protective clothing. Try to wear clothes that can block out the sun’s rays or you can wear a hat to shield yourself.

7. Get enough rest

There is no denying what a good night sleep can do for your skin. It’s the time where your body gets to relax and repair itself.

Without it, your body will release stress hormones that can lead to inflammation. If you already have acne-prone skin or rosacea, it can mean bad news.

It also causes an imbalance in your hydration. Instead of the excess water getting removed out of your body, it actually stays and makes you look puffy.

Conclusion

Maintaining your beauty takes more than just finding the right skin care products. You should also know how to take care of your skin from the inside.

These golden rules may sound complicated or even too hard to follow at first but once you get the hang of it, they’ll come naturally. Plus, seeing how these tips can get you that great clear skin you’ve always wanted is enough motivation for you to keep pushing forward.

There is no shortcut to natural beauty. It’s actually a commitment.

 

Most moles are harmless, but it is important to check them regularly to make sure they are not unusual-looking or new or changing.

“If you check your moles every few months, and you notice an unusual-looking or new or changing mole, it is important to get it checked by an expert without delay. Many people make the mistake of thinking skin cancer is trivial. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, affecting 1 in 10 people. Whilst caught early, Melanoma is easily treated – caught too late it can kill.  Rates of melanoma are increasing faster than any other cancer. The MOLE Clinic believe early detection would reduce the number of deaths drastically in the UK, which currently stands at over 2,000 per year (more than Australia).

“Early detection is key to saving lives, self-monitoring is key to prevention.

“Skin cancer is caused by UV damage done to your skin – either by too much sun or sun bed use. Even a sunburn in childhood can cause skin cancer in an adult. Generally, people are only usually aware about the risk of skin cancer when on holiday and the sun is shining. During winter months, our bodies are covered up more, meaning we are less likely to spot a mole that is a potential problem. Whilst skin cancer can affect anybody, lighter skinned people and those with lots of moles are at higher risk.




“Skin cancers have more chance to spread the longer they are left. By check your moles regularly and spotting any signs of change you can help detect any skin cancer early – which greatly improves prognosis. A change of size, shape and colour in moles may indicate skin cancer. Normal moles do change very gradually over years but more noticeable changes should be checked by an expert. Mole removal, whether of a suspicious mole or for cosmetic reasons is usually a quick, simple and painless procedure. It is done under local anaesthetic at a clinic such as The MOLE Clinic, where consultant dermatologists or surgeons advise on the most appropriate procedure to remove the mole.

“According to Skin Cancer Screening Nurse, Claire Crilly, at The MOLE Clinic (www.themoleclinic.co.uk), self-monitoring is easier than you think. Just follow the ‘ABCDE rule’ on what you should be looking out for.

  • A: Look for moles that are asymmetrical in shape, where one half of the mole is unlike the other
  • B: Does the mole have an irregular border? Is it scalloped, jagged or poorly defined?
  • C: Is the colour of the mole different from one area to another or does it have different shades of tan, brown or black?
  • D: Check the diameter of the mole to see if it is bigger than 7mm (about the size of the end of a pencil)
  • E: Is the mole evolving or changing size, shape or colour?

“It is really important to take note of ‘E’, as any mole that is evolving or changing needs to be examined by an expert like The MOLE Clinic right away. With skin cancer, only early detection saves lives – if you follow the above guidelines, it’s easy as ABCDE to keep your skin-health in check.”

Activewear hits popularity peak, despite 76% of women feeling it can be sexist

For Immediate Release

• The activewear industry is projected to hit £145 billion by 2020
• 89% of women have admitted to wearing sportswear when not doing exercise
• 18% of women have felt objectified when wearing sportswear
• Research revealed a 53% increase in the average price of gym wear for women compared to men

Sportswear as a fashion statement is soaring in popularity amongst women. The activewear industry is projected to   hit £145 billion by 2020. That’s up from £117 billion in 2015.

Golfsupport.com, a male and female golf apparel site, wanted to explore the ‘athleisure’ trend, and what women’s motives are for wearing it. To do this, they have looked at social media analytics, retail reports, different activewear brands, and conducted their own survey of over 1,700 female participants.

Women have their say about the craze.

What do women really think about the craze for all things ‘casual’, and what are their motivations for following it? Golfsupport.com have surveyed over 1,700 women, with the following discoveries:

• 89% of women have admitted to wearing sportswear outside the gym
• The majority of women wore activewear when lounging at home
• 5% of women have worn athleisure to work, and 2% on a night out.
• 75% felt sportswear was comfortable, and was the main reason for wearing it.
• 18% of women have felt objectified when wearing sportswear
• 76% of women felt female activewear can be sexist at times

Surprisingly, most women choose to wear athleisure because it is comfortable, rather than because it is fashionable. In fact, only 3% of females stated that fashion was what drove them to sport the trend.

Is sportswear sexist?

Wimbledon 2017 was filled with masterstrokes, skilful forehands and courageous performances from female players. Yet, instead of promoting this talent, the Women’s Tennis Association chose to focus on the best-dressed player in her ‘Wimbledon Whites’.

The survey by Golfsupport.com also revealed worrying attitudes to activewear. Results showed a number of women who felt objectified while wearing sportswear. There also seemed to be a consensus that sportswear could be sexist. Here are a few comments from respondents:

“I find that some of the pants are cut too low, they often don’t cover enough of my hips/waist area. They are also often very tight, some of the necklines are too low, I can’t run in them without feeling like I will fall out because they expose too much. I have received many “cat calls” or sexual comments from men in these outfits, playing sports or not.”

“I do believe that current trends are sexualising sportswear for women, such as sheer fabrics and panels. It’s unnecessary and completely unrelated to what it’s designed for – exercise!”

Looking at popular athleisure brands, like Lululemon or Sweaty Betty, it’s easy to see why women would feel this way. Sweaty Betty in particular have leggings labelled as ‘bum sculpting’, said to “give you an extra lift”, with “carefully placed seams, high stretch fabric and wide waistband [to] sculpt your best bum ever.” This shifts the focus of sportswear from performance, to how you look. A focus not found in male activewear.

Research also revealed that activewear is typically priced at a premium compared to other clothing types. Furthermore, upon investigation, Golfsupport.com discovered that women’s activewear carried a higher price tag than its male equivalent. Searching in the sub category “gym” of activewear on ASOS, it was found that the cost of an item averaged out at £18.52 for women, and only £12.13 for men.

 

 

Step Up Club- Women’s Career Hacks

How productive are you at work? Here’s a guess: when the going is good, you tick over like a well-oiled machine, but more often than not you’re struggling behind a wall of tiredness, low energy levels thanks to a diet propped up by sugary snacks rather than healthy berries, and too many emails pinging at you throughout the day.

Here’s the thing though, when we’re productive at work it makes us happier beings who, wait for it, are more successful too. Oh and highly productive types also enjoy themselves way more in their downtime. Why? Because they’re riding high on the satisfaction that goes hand-in-hand with working effectively and putting their careers into first gear.

The problem is, in today’s fast-paced, digitally switched on world many of us struggle to get the job done and our productivity languishes around our ankles. If this is you, take heart in the knowledge that you’re not alone. Which is why we’re putting productivity in the driving seat.  So British Summer Fruits have teamed up with Step Up Club to give their top work hacks for the best, most accomplished summer of your working life. Clue: you can start right now.

  1. KEEP A JOURNAL: You can’t make improvements to your productivity, unless you first make an assessment about how well you work, at which times of day and the triggers and obstacles to your own personal productivity odyssey. So, start by keeping a journal: choose one day, and divide it into half hourly slots.  Then, throughout the day, add in what you eat, what you achieve, the number of breaks you take and how you feel at the end. Once you have your own concrete evidence, positive change is so much easier.
  2. EMAIL MANAGEMENT: It’s first thing in the morning and you’re ready to accomplish greatness; you sit down at your computer and two hours later you realise you’ve been sucked into an email black hole. Emails are brilliant for speedy communication and terrible for productivity. We say, define a handful of specific daily email slots and otherwise switch the Inbox off. Then notice how you suddenly have time for strategic offline thinking and meetings with real people. A good idea, is to save your email thoughts for each person, and rather than send constant one liners – remember, every email you send creates an opening for a reply – collate a mega email to pop out of your inbox at the end of the day. Then, you’ll give yourself the gift of thinking time.
  3. BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY: A summer cold is one of the world’s cruellest tricks. It’s warm outside, but you’re cowering under blankets, managing a dripping nose and non-existent energy levels. Hack: instead of bingeing on Vitamin drinks that look healthy but are swamped with sugar and artificial ingredients, enjoy a punnet of fresh berries. Natural goodness on the go means less illness and an instant health boost – plus just 7 strawberries provide your recommended daily amount of vitamins.
  4. IDENTIFY YOUR SLUMP TIME: That part of the day when you feel like you’ve peaked too soon, but there’s still several hours left on the work clock: what to do? Well, research says that when we accomplish menial jobs, it gives us an instant energy boost. So, use your downtime effectively (filing anyone?!) and gift yourself an extra few hours of revved up productivity at the end of the day. Accomplishing even small tasks also delivers a happiness shot, which in our books is a win-win situation.
  5. BERRY POWER: Sugary snacks are one of productivity’s biggest enemies. Instantspike + crashing low = lethargy and discontent on all sorts of levels. Instead reach for the berries. Antioxidants + low calories + a steady release of energy = snack Utopia.  Berries are great sources of fibre, which means they will keep you fuller for longer.
  6. LUNCH BREAK RESSURECTION: Time away from your desk boosts your mood, energy and creativity. The result:an afternoon of profound productivity. So, remember to leave your desk, and even better get out in the open. Sunlight is a natural mood booster, and when we’re feeling good we work better and are more productive too.
  7. THE ONE POINT TO DO: Rather than suffering the insurmountable mountainof an on-going To Do list, chose one vital task to achieve each day. When we are able to score a work goal each day, it results in a continued sense of achievement. And achievement feeds into happy productivity. Done.
  8. EXERCISE: Being active boosts productivity. Fact.
  9. CALL TIME ON COFFEE: And tea for that matter. Caffeine causes the same energy spike and crash as sugar. Replace with fruit or a berry smoothie. Even water is better than a cheeky espresso, because proper rehydration actually sustains our bodies for longer.
  10. REPLACE BISCUITS WITH BERRIES:Biscuits and a boardroom are old pals. But they aren’t good friends. Yup it’s that sugar crash again, which combined with flip charts and a possibility of hours without any fresh air inevitably results in too many heavy eye lids. Instead, bring a punnet of berries to the table. Blueberries especially are the perfect working finger food. No mess, great taste and they are chocked full of goodness. Did you know that blueberries are consistently ranked as one of the most anti-oxidant rich foods amongst fruit and vegetables? We told you they were special.
  11. SLEEP. AND THEN SLEEP SOME MORE: When we sleep better, we’re more productive. So how to get the best sleep?Start by switching off the smartphone at least two hours before bed – a proven a relaxant. Then, head up early. Also, don’t fret about your sleep. When we get hung up on being a bad sleeper, it makes us feel more tired. So don’t worry about a bit of tiredness, change your rhetoric and bounce into work whatever your night’s been like.
