Looking Fabulous While Flying in Turbulence

You hear the pilot overhead saying “please return to your seats and fashion your seatbelts, we are about to enter some “chop””, also know as turbulence. He might as well said to me “get out your “E” ticket, your going for a roller coast ride”!

Fastne Seatbelts!

Flight turbulence really puts me into panic mode because it’s not like being in a car where you can pull over on the side of the road if things get too rough, but you just keep flying on. Much of my anxiety comes from some very bumpy flight experiences. So, when I saw this article about the realities of flight turbulence and how very few people are actually injured in it every year, I thought to share with you. After all, staying calm, cool and collected helps to keep us looking fabulous, right?

“While turbulence can feel scary, airplanes are designed to withstand massive amounts of it. “A plane cannot be flipped upside-down, thrown into a tailspin, or otherwise flung from the sky by even the mightiest gust or air pocket,” wrote pilot Patrick Smith on his site, AskThePilot.com. “Conditions might be annoying and uncomfortable, but the plane is not going to crash.”

To read the full article, with loads more very useful – and very calming – information, I invite you to click on over to Travel and Leisure where Melissa Locker has written a superb article for nervous fliers!

Melissa really knows how to calm the nervous traveler, and give assurance to the most anxious!

Exactly How Does Our Skin Age?

Do you know how your skin ages from the inside out? We commonly take for granted that our skin as a protective external envelope, without fully considering the numerous, essential functions it provides. Skin is our largest organ, providing an interface between our internal physiological systems and the external world; it protects us from harm due to pathogens, solar radiation, pollutants, and also acts as effective barrier against water loss, ensuring essential nutrients remain in our systems. As we age, skin becomes thinner, drier, and less capable of healing itself . . .

When considering the aging process and skin, there are two major types of aging to consider:

  1. Intrinsic Aging – also known as chronological or natural aging – is caused by changes in the structure and function of skin that occur as we age naturally. Beginning around out mid-20s, physiological changes cause collagen production to slow and skin to loose its elasticity. Dead skin cells do not shed as quickly, and the turnover of new cells begins to slow. Additionally, changes in hormone levels reduce the amount of oil produced, resulting in dry, akey skin.
  2.  Extrinsic Aging – results when exposure to external factors prematurely ages our skin. Numerous factors can negatively affect the skin, the most common of which is sun exposure (extrinsic aging is, therefore, often referred to as photoaging). Other factors include pollution, poor diet, cigarette smoke, stress, and gravity. Exposure results in skin with age spots, blotchy pigmentation, deep wrinkles, and a rough, leathery appearance.

Extrinsic Aging accounts for 90% of the visible signs of aging!

As natural and external processes take their toll, our systems experience oxidative stress, hormone fluctuations, decreases in metabolic activity, and declines in the length of cell life. The effects of both intrinsic aging and extrinsic are visibly seen in the skin: collagen production diminishes and elastin becomes less springy, resulting in less voluminous and elastic skin that sags and wrinkles easily. Skin becomes less moisturized naturally, and exposure to the elements causes hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and reduces the skin’s ability to hold in moisture. Intrinsic and extrinsic processes are linked; as natural changes take place, our ability to fight the deleterious effects of environmental exposure decreases.

  • Between ages 20 and 80 our collagen production declines by 65%

Skin thins at a rate of 6% per 10 years

“We cannot stop ourselves from aging, we can age gracefully by caring for our skin and reducing our exposure to the harmful factors that cause aging”

While intrinsic processes mean we cannot stop ourselves from aging, we can age gracefully by caring for our skin and reducing our exposure to the harmful factors that cause aging. Be- cause the skin is an organ, it can benefit from products that protect skin and encourage skin regeneration topically, and well as ingested supplements that help maintain healthy system function.

Apriori BeautyTM has taken advantage of this concept by creating an internal and external system enhanced with the patent pending Nutrient ReservoirTM, which delivers essential ingredients to protect and prolong the life of every skin cell while combating the damage we’ve already done, effectively reducing the visible signs of aging. These ingredients protect from the 4 Core Influences of Aging, providing:

  1. Antioxidants to reduce the effects of oxidative stress
  2. Endocrine system modulators to mediate hormone fluctuations
  3. Energy Activators to help promote mitochondrial and metabolic efficiency
  4. Longevity Gene Supporters to extend the life of healthy cells

Pomegranates are Good for Your Skin!

 Our skin is a reflection of what’s going on inside our body, so it only makes sense to nourish and protect our skin by taking in foods that soothe and calm our inflammation. Pomegranate fruit is one such food that has a great effect on the inside of our body, and can help our skin become more beautiful as well!

Pomegranate!

Pomegranate fruit is rich in two types of polyphenolic compounds, anthocyanins and hydrolysable tannins, and is known for its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have demonstrated the potential for clinical use of pomegranate in the prevention and treatment of cancer (1), and its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful for addressing other diseases where chronic inflammation plays a critical role (2). It is also known to promote cardiovascular health by preventing low-density lipoprotein oxidation, reducing blood pressure and slowing the development of atherosclerosis (3).

Are Your Hair Care Products Free of Sulfates?

It’s really important to use skin and hair products that are as free from known toxins as possible. Our health is a gift and we need to make good choices to protect and nurture our health throughout our life. One ingredient you don’t want in your personal care products is sulfate.

Sulfate Free. We see it highlighted on shampoo bottles like it’s a big deal, but what does this really mean? Why is it important for us to use sulfate free shampoos and conditioners?  Here’s the short + sweet + simple answer.

Sulfate is an inexpensive chemical used by companies to provide cleaning power and bubbly lather in our shampoos (and some conditioners).

It cuts through grease and provides the bubbles that we love, so what’s the problem? The concern is that sulfates can cause skin irritations, worsen skin problems and can even be linked to hair loss! Sulfates are cheap and effective as a detergent, but our delicate scalp, hair, and hair follicles aren’t able to handle the harsh chemical- especially as we age.

The harsh sulfates may be causing you more harm than good.

Eating Chocolate a New Way to Treat A-Fib?

“A-Fib”, or atrial fibrillation, is a heart arrhythmia more common in older adults. It can be very frightening to experience, and needs treatment quickly in order for your heart to continue pumping effectively. A new study is showing the possibility of another positive side effect of eating chocolate which is to potentially calm the frequency of A-Fib episodes. I now love chocolate even more!

Dark Chocolate

“Regular chocolate consumption may be linked to a lower risk of developing the heart rhythm irregularity atrial fibrillation, also known as heart flutter, finds research published on-line in the journal Heart.

The associations seemed to be strongest for 1 weekly serving for women and between 2 and 6 weekly servings for men, the findings suggest.”

Which Kentucky Derby Hat is You?

The Kentucky Derby is such a fun and frolicky annual horse race, filled with tradition and beauty. From the gorgeous horses to the traditional mint juleps, there is anticipation and excitement in the air. What I love most about the Kentucky Derby is selecting “my” horse to cheer on and, always, seeing the beautiful hats on display everywhere!

“The long-established fashion was started with Col. Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr.’s vision for the Derby as an event that the high-class would attend, similar to European-style racing events, which mandated full morning dress for men and women. For the first running of the Kentucky Derby, he used high-class women to recruit his target clientele to attend the race. The event quickly became just as much about the fashion as the racing. Going to a horse racing event became an opportunity to show off the latest in spring fashion and women were known to coordinate their hats, dresses, bags, shoes, and even parasols.” *

I’m posting a few hats for you to enjoy from the official Kentucky Derby website as well as my personal choice if I were going this year!

  1. Playful and fun!

2. “Look at me!” (I like the shoulder sun protection this hat offers!)

3. This one has the floral embellishment underneath the brim – beautiful!

4. Such fun for men, too!

5. My choice from Berkeley Hats (where you will find many, many more lovely hats to order!)

Cheers to a great race and very fun day!

Castor Oil Treatment for Hair Loss?

Hair loss comes from a variety of causes and conditions. Stress, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, thyroid issues, menopause, heredity and many more conditions can lead to the loss of hair at different times of life.

I’m experiencing hair loss, not quite sure exactly why as I have a few of the above mentioned conditions. I tried several different shampoos and conditioners, asked my doctor if my health could be the reason, and asked my hair stylist what she thought. Came up with not a whole lot of help, but did find some information and testimonials about the use of castor oil mixed with other oils as a hair treatment. I’m game – what do I have to lose but more hair, right?

Castor Oil hair treatment is as easy as any hot oil treatment. Mix equal parts castor oil with a base oil such as coconut oil, or jojoba oil. Dampen hair, apply oil, wrap with a warm moist towel and let it absorb from 30 minutes to 6 hours, or something similar to this.

Here’s a link to an easy step by step guide for Castor Oil Hair Treatment from WikiHow. [Read more…]

New Procedure to Correct Receding Gums

Until recently, there have been two methods to correct receding gums – covering the exposed tooth roots with porcelain veneers, and gum tissues grafting. I personally had experience with the root covering, which fell off twice. I’m not a fan of the gum tissue grafts, as the tissue used when you need many teeth grafted would need to come from “another source.” No thank you.

I figured, wait long enough and someone will have a light bulb idea, which has happened. A dentist has developed a simple technique called the “Pinhole technique”.

Pinhole Technique Before and After

How it works:

“During the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a needle is used to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.” [Read more…]

12 Things You Can Do to Find Happiness

Every now and again I step out of my world to take stock of the things which are and the things I would like to see happen. With a perspective of my life’s timeline, the opportunities to accomplish, make a difference and leave a positive legacy are coming to a close. With sixty amazing years behind me, I still have so much I want to accomplish, many things to do and say, and always, I want to continue improving in all areas of my life.

As I was reading online, one article led to another, led to another and I found a post titled:

12 Things Happy People Do Differently.”

Okay, I’m game to see what more I can do to increase my own happiness potential and the happiness of those I touch each day.

Author Marc Chernoff has hit the nail on the head with each “thing.” It was like a report card of my life and how it’s lived, and I scored high marks. I want to celebrate, not only because I am truly happy deep down in my heart, but because I believe the things we do come from a place in our hearts that when plowed and nourished can only bring fruit.

If our soil is cleansed of weeds (unforgiveness, anger, bitterness), amply fertilized (what we read, see, hear, where we spend out time, who we spend our time with), have planted good seeds (how we invest our time and energies in the things we do and who we spend time with) and water our seeds (love, support, encouragement, kindness, and care), we will produce beautiful fruit in time. Like a farmer reaping a rich harvest, or a gardener who enjoys the beauty of a blossoming garden, the joy of hard work and much care will lead to happiness in life.

The continual renewal and nourishing of our hearts and spirits I have found to be the key to happiness. For me it is the daily reading of the Bible, meditating on the stories, advice and words of encouragement which have planted seeds of love, and have set my heart and mind in the right place from which all else from my life flows.

Please enjoy Marc’s article and I wish you abundant happiness!

Eating Cheese, Cream and Butter is Good for You?

Yes, you read this right – a new study has found that eating a high fat diet of cheese, cream, butter and other foods high in saturated fats, actually decreased the incidence of diabetes and heart disease. Along with the increase in fats, they also ate less carbohydrates, which would mean more foods like cheese on broccoli or tomatoes, full fat cream and milk products.

“The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found overweight middle-aged men who ate high levels of saturated fat and low levels of carbohydrate became slimmer and healthier. Researchers also saw reduced blood pressure and glucose levels, which are associated with a lower risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and cancer, in the patients.” [Read more…]

Are Sweets on Your Diet Breakfast Menu?

As a healthy eater starting your day with a nutritious breakfast, are sweets on your breakfast menu? Here’s why they should be.  If you don’t have a problem keeping a healthy weight, then this won’t be as meaningful to you as to someone like me, who, well, let’s just say – struggles.

Chocolate Cake

A new study published in the journal Steroids, shows fantastic results from a study done in Tel Aviv, which included a sweet treat on a low carbohydrate, high protein, 600 calorie breakfast. Results included excellent weight loss, and continued weight loss after the study was completed. [Read more…]
