Health And Beauty Tip Number 3: All Natural Makeup Mascara

Another gem of wisdom from makeup artist to the stars,Tally Bookbinder.

When applying mascara, always have an old but clean mascara brush to hand. When you have applied the mascara, run the old brush up the eyelashes to remove any excess and prevent clogging.

Oh, and remember to brush from the roots upwards for best effect and only dip the brush in the mascara bottle once; to pump it in and out will encourage unfriendly bacteria. Your eyes are pretty sensitive as well as pretty!

More Reasons To Use Sunless Tan Lotions

 

Following the previous post on skin cancer, two items of news have helped the case for sunless tan lotions.

The first is, following recent worrying statistics and some accidents, the introduction of legislation by the English parliament which makes it an offence for any person under the age of 18 to use a sunbed in England and Wales. This is already the case in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Also required by law is the supervision of all people using sunbeds.

Read more on this story here.

 

At the same time, the good people at Proto-col health and beauty have produced some great offers on their sunless tan lotions and related products.

For example, if you buy two cans of the Golden Glow tanning mist, you will get a free tube of tan extender lotion. Or, if you are preparing your tan for the summer, for only £29.95 you can buy the Ultimate Tan bag containing a selection of tanning products, including a tan mitt to apply tanning lotion.

(Sadly this promotion is no longer available but there are some excellent offers available online)

Worrying Skin Cancer Figures Prove The Case For Sunless Tan Lotions

A Group Of People Sunbathing

 

A press release from the British charity Cancer Research UK has shown the incidences of skin cancer continuing to rise.

Their figures show that two young people under 35 in Britain are diagnosed with melanoma every day. This equates to 5.9 people per 100 000 and 900 in total during 2008.

This is compared with 290 young people suffering the condition thirty years ago and 1.8 per 100 000.

Over all age groups the increase is 8.5%.

The cause of course is too much exposure to the sun. Sunbeds are not helpful either: Cancer Research UK have found that use of a sunbed by people under 35 can increase the chances of melanoma by 75%.

To read the full press release, click here.

So what can be done? There is still a demand for a tanned body so the answer must be to use one of the many sunless tan lotions available. These have had significant improvements in quality and effectiveness in recent years.

And cover up in the sun of course.

New Calcium Natural Diet Supplement

 

Fabulous Arched Backflip by Londons Festival Pier

 

Last year the Duchess of Cornwall had a fall and broke both her legs. Both her mother and grandmother suffered from osteoporosis, or brittle bone disease, and the Duchess is the President of the National Osteoporosis Society: the fear was that she too was suffering from the condition.

According to statistics from the International Osteoporosis Foundation, an estimated 75 million people in the USA, Europe and Japan suffer from brittle bones and there were around 9 million new osteoporotic fractures during the year 2000. The cost of treating sufferers is estimated at $5.2 billion each year. In women over 45 years of age, osteoporosis accounts for more days in hospital than many other diseases, including breast cancer and diabetes.

The problem is going to get worse too. 1 in 3 women over the age of 65 are prone to fractures, as are 1 in 5 men. By the year 2050 the number of people in Europe and America living beyond the age of 80 is set to triple.

So how can we avoid becoming part of these statistics?

Calcium is the substance that hardens the bones. Actually the real strength in the bones comes from a combination of collagen and calcium. Minerals such as calcium bind to the collagen to form bone.

But it is not just the bones that benefit from calcium. The substance is abundant in the body and maintains the strength of nails and teeth too.

It was the case that we would simply drink lots of milk to build up the calcium levels in our bodies and this has been largely successful in the past. However it is becoming widely accepted that over farming has lead to a reduction in the goodness we receive from various foodstuffs and this is beginning to be understood in the case of the calcium benefits of milk too.

Unfortunately too many cows are being fed on artificial feedstuffs and even those grazing on open meadows may be eating grass reduced in nutrition.

So what do we do then?

While calcium is still found in milk, we need to use nutritional health supplements to increase the calcium we take in. During the Proto-col National Conference earlier this year Managing Director of Proto-col, James Greenwell, launched a new Calcium Complex capsule.

This new product contains both calcium and collagen to help to strengthen bones. However there are other trace substances and vitamins included to ensure bone health and indeed the absorption of calcium to where it is needed.

The figures on osteoporosis are sobering but I think we all owe it to ourselves to give our bodies’ structure the strength it requires for good health and safe living.

The emergence of any new and effective natural diet supplement should be welcomed.
