Healthy Skin Tips: Protect Your Skin In Flight

There are plenty of healthy skin tips to protect your complexion during day-to-day living but did you ever consider that flying might have an effect?

If you take a flight regularly, or even if you are going on a long-haul flight for your holiday, it might be worth considering some healthy skin tips to ensure you look as amazing when you arrive as when you left.

Taking an aircraft between destinations can be stressful mentally but your skin also suffers with the changes in atmosphere.

High altitude, high temperature and air conditioning dry the skin and you get all there when flying. It is wise therefore to ensure you drink adequate amounts of water before and during the flight – even if you are afraid of using the toilet during the flight!

Remember to avoid alcohol and caffeine drinks during the flight, even if they are offered to you. Most healthy skin tips will tell you to avoid these, as they tend to cause dehydration. Dryness also exacerbates jet lag too.

Use a moisturiser before you fly and consider packing one in your hand luggage for use on the flight. Be prepared to remove it during security searches, however!

Eyes particularly suffer from long haul flights so ensure you moisturise around them and even consider using eye drops in case the dryness becomes a particular problem. For this reason, contact lenses are probably not a good idea.

You may also want to ensure you use an all natural makeup that includes a sunscreen. Ultraviolet rays are stronger the higher the attitude so protection is a good idea – particularly if you have a window seat.

Nutritional Health Supplements: The Cold Season

This time of year can be very beautiful with the golds and reds of the trees but it is also the season when we need to be taking our nutritional health supplements to stave off the inevitable colds that seem to be around now.

But when we take these nutritional health supplements, what vitamins and minerals are best this time of year?

As always, nutritional health supplements should be taken as part of a healthier lifestyle to be most effective so it is better to ensure your life generally involves healthy options.

Your diet should always be balanced and healthy no matter what the time of year. Eat enough, but not too much, of the right foods, including those rich in vitamin C, which is the vitamin most used to combat the common cold. This can be found in such foods as citrus fruit, red and blue berries and green vegetables but a good diet should always have a good spread of fruit and vegetables in any case.

Ensure you get plenty of rest and sleep and avoid stimulants such as coffee, caffeine rich or sugary drinks and alcohol as these will simply increase your stress level. Moderate exercise taken on a daily basis will make you feel good and boost your immune system.

Drink lots of water to hydrate your body and ensure the best operation of your bodily functions. Experts vary as to how much water is best but something around eight glasses of water each day seems to be about right.

It is a sad fact of life that much of the food we eat does not contain the goodness it might have done in previous years: for this reason it is a good idea to include a daily multivitamin natural diet supplement. You can then be confident you are doing all you need to stay healthy.

A substance now available as a natural diet supplement and gaining popularity as a means of boosting the immune system is colostrum. This is obtained from the mammary glands of animals, often cows, and is rich in antibodies the body uses to combat various toxins, bacteria and viruses.

In the run up to Christmas a stinking cold can be a real annoyance but in reality we can reduce the chances of contracting one.

The website LookRavishing.com has details of quality nutritional health supplements to help you avoid the bugs and illnesses common this time of year.

Healthy Skin Tips: Remember To Moisturise In Winter

Everyone knows that the air in summer is drier and that moisturising is important but I wonder how many accept that one of the important tips to beautiful skin is to moisturise during the winter months too?

Cold air is also very drying. Have you ever suffered windburn? You will know the damage that cold, dry winds can cause to your skin. It is very easy to allow the skin to dry out and even let it flake and crack.

Don’t forget the hands and feet of course; cracked skin on the hands and feet can be painful and may well bleed, and this is unsightly too.

Another reason for heeding this particular one of the tips to beautiful skin is we are now coming up to the busiest times for parties and we all want to look good at parties, don’t we? Make sure your skin looks fresh and glowing just when you want it to do so.

Even milder winter weather can dry out the skin so it worth spending the time applying a good moisturiser in the morning and last thing at night.

This is one of those tips that will help you feel good and confident during a time of year when we might feel a little down but need to shine.

Natural Diet Supplement: Nutrition For Toddlers

It is always important to ensure we all have the right nutrition – whether from our diets or from nutritional health supplements – but it is all too easy to forget that one of the most important times to ensure the body is getting the nutrients it needs is when we are growing.

One of the most difficult times a parent can have with their children is when they are at the toddler stage. Interestingly toddlers need less food than they did as babies but nutrition is still very important. Get it right now and your offspring will start off on a healthy life and will have reduced health problems in the future.

Yes, too often the wrong foods are given to children at this stage and parents run the risk of starting a cycle that leads to obesity. Smart parents need to respond to their own instincts rather than implementing a strict and unattractive regime of diet and nutritional health supplements.

Get a youngster enjoying fruit and vegetable now and you will have fewer problems when they get to the more rebellious stages. Make the foods fun and brightly coloured and your child will accept them more readily; carrots and broccoli, for example, are brightly coloured so will attract the eye of a toddler. Fruit is easy as you can combine a variety of colours in a meal.

As always, a balanced diet is the key so there needs to be a balance of fruit, vegetables, dairy products (yoghurt, milk and cheese – remember that calcium!) and some lean meat or beans.

To be completely sure you are giving your child the correct level of goodness and nutrition, it makes good sense to provide a good natural diet supplement every day too.

It is clear one of the best things you can do for young children is to get them used to the right nutrition, from food and a good natural diet supplement.
