  • Benefits of Cucumber Water

    The other day I had a massage and was given cucumber water, was so refreshing. We need to keep our body hydrated and some of us just don’t like water without a flavour. So I have been drinking CUCUMBER Water since my massage and want to share with you the benefits.

    Cheers!

    HYDRATION

    1. 1. It keeps you hydrated.

    Your body can’t function properly without water. Most people should aim to drink six to eight glasses of water per day, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. We know we’re supposed to drink water throughout the day, but sometimes plain water gets boring. Adding cucumber gives it some extra flavour, encouraging you to drink more.

    WEIGHT LOSS

    1. It helps with weight loss.

    If you’re trying to lose weight, replacing sugary sodas, sports drinks, and juices with cucumber water can help you cut some serious calories from your diet.

    Staying hydrated also helps you feel full. Sometimes your body confuses thirst with hunger. You may feel like you’re hungry, when you’re actually thirsty.

    How will you know the difference? Reach for a tall glass of cucumber water first. If your hunger goes away after finishing the drink, you were thirsty. If you’re still hungry, then you know it’s hunger.

    ANTIOXIDANTS

    1. It delivers antioxidants.

    Antioxidants are substances that help prevent and delay cell damage from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Oxidative stress can lead to chronic conditions like:

    • cancer
    • diabetes
    • heart disease
    • Alzheimer’s
    • eye degeneration

    Research has shown that antioxidants may be able to reverse or stop this damage. This is why you should each fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants. Cucumbers fall into this category. They’re rich in:

    • vitamin C
    • beta carotene
    • manganese
    • molybdenum
    • several flavonoid antioxidants

    Would like to hear if you have tried Cucumber Water, leave a comment.

    Stay Youthful,

  • The Benefits of Skin Needling for YOUTHFUL SKIN!

    What Does Dermapen /Skin Needling do for the skin?

    Unlike any other treatment before it, Dermapen/skin needling has been designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, deep creases, and various types of scarring, including acne scarring. A micro-needling technique both corrects damage and boosts the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Basically, Dermapen/ skin needling encourages the skin to naturally heal itself, leaving behind the youthful and refreshed appearance every patient wants.

    Micro needling involves the use of small needles that puncture the skin in order to stimulate wound healing. The idea of damaging the skin to renew it has been around for decades, used in other ways by various skin treatments. Yet, micro needling has been proven to be a safer and increasingly efficient way to generate real results for healthy and smooth skin. The refined techniques involved with Dermapen treatments make this alternative more and more popular among patients.

    What Are the Major Benefits of Skin Needling?

    While the Dermapen begins its work with controlled damage to the skin, that’s not where this treatment stops. While tiny spring-loaded needle tips vibrate against the device, applying light punctures along the treatment area, they are stimulating the healing process and ensuring that the top layer of skin cells will turnover for healthier-looking results. Once the healing has been activated by Dermapen, the final results will begin to take shape. After four to six treatments, your skin will be tightened and rejuvenated, stretch marks will be eliminated, large pores will be decreased in size, various types of scars will improve in appearance, and the signs of alopecia may be minimized.

    What Is the Skin Needling Procedure Like?

    Dermapen treatments begin with the cleaning and the anesthetization of the treatment area, usually with a topical cream. The Dermapen applicator is then placed against the skin and a qualified therapist will make a stamp-like motion along all of the areas to be treated. This process takes only a few minutes to complete and should not cause any significant discomfort. Afterwards, most patients experience redness and tightness for about one to three days. Home care is vital following your treatment, as well as any other precautionary measures that should be taken to keep your skin healthy and healing.

    Who Is a Candidate for Skin Needling?

    Dermapen is a safe, effective procedure for patients who have been experiencing troubles with their skin, such as scarring, enlarged pores, and the early signs of aging. The procedure itself is only mildly invasive and not a significant surgery to recover from, so many patients can be safely eligible for Dermapen. On the other hand, prospective patients who are pregnant or who have an active skin infection will likely be asked to postpone their Dermapen treatments. The best way to assess your eligibility is to consult with a licensed aesthetician, who can review your unique situation and advise a course of treatment to resolve your individual concerns.

  • Sugarcane the key to younger skin

    The Secret to Youthful skin is found in sugarcane.

    As we age our skin starts to look dull, firmness disappears, the youthful glow is diminishing. Why does this happen and how can we look fabulous in our 30’s, 40’s and 50’s?

    No need for expensive salon treatments find a skincare range high in Glycolic derived from sugarcane.

    Glycolic Acids have caused a sensation recently as anti-wrinkle active ingredients. They loosen the intercellular ‘glue’, allowing new cells to come through more rapidly and stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin. The visible effect is a skin which looks fresher and younger. Glycolic acids help remove the surface skin cells, improving skin texture and colour. Skin is left feeling plump and glowing as the new skin layers are revealed.

    Despite its modern chemical name, the beneficial effects of Glycolic acids have been used for centuries. Cleopatra use to have her legendary milk baths and tales of woman using red wine baths to keep their skin youthful.
    Our facial skin is made up of three layers the epidermis (what we see), dermis (the middle layer) and subcutaneous layer (the third layer). Our skin, due to shedding of skin cells, replaces itself every 7 years. Your skin sheds every 28-45 days, rejuvenating the epidermis and allowing the next generation of skin cells to come forward. We shed about 40 lbs of skin in a lifetime! The dead skin needs to be slough off to allow the new cells to the top.
    What happens is we get a BUILD UP of DEAD SKIN CELLS this will make our skin look tired, uneven tone and fine wrinkles may appear. With young skin types they get blocked pores that forms pimples and scar tissue.
    When buying a Glycolic skincare product check the levels of ACTIVE ingredient. If the percentage of glycolic is not on the label don’t waste your money.

    Door of Youth Skincare is RICH in Glycolic. The Foaming Cleanser is 5% AHA, Skin Renewal Serum 12.5 % and Enrich Day Cream with Hyaluronic Acid gives a younger glow and tone to skin.

  • How to get whiter teeth with coconut oil

    The latest teeth-whitening trend being embraced by Hollywood’s A-list – including Lauren Conrad, Shailene Woodley, and Gwyneth Paltrow – is called oil pulling. How strange does this sound? Many of my friends have done it and they are raving about the benefits.

    Woman teeth

    What is oil pulling?

    Oil pulling is a method of putting a tablespoon of cold-pressed coconut oil in your mouth and swishing it around for 15 to 20 minutes while pushing and pulling the oil between your teeth. You then spit the oil into the bin (not the sink or toilet as it can clog) and brush your teeth as normal.

    What are the benefits?

    Oil pulling works to reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in your mouth, reduce plaque and gingivitis, improve bad breath, whiten teeth, and make teeth appear more shiny and healthy-looking.

    Does it work?

    Well give it a go for 2 weeks and let us know if it works for you.
