Toilet talk

Keep a lid on it.
Here comes a bit of 🚽toilet talk and etiquette. Engineers at Boulder university recently conducted a scientific study that shows that particles from flushing the toilet with an open lid can fly up to 1,5 meters. It sprays on the walls, can zoom straight onto your face, land on your skin, and any objects we have in the bathroom.
While being meticulous keeping our skin fresh and clean, I don’t think anyone wants germs and bacteria sprayed on it. Sorry about this disgusting 🤢topic

Save my dry winter skin

Dry skin is more common in the colder winter months. We often expose our skin to changes in humidity and temperature which can irritate our skin. Turning the heat up high indoors and taking hot showers, then going outside to colder temperatures. The cold weather, snow, rain and harsh winds can strip the skin of its natural, moisturizing oils.

Shallow breathing

Are you a shallow breather like me? Most people are shallow breathers or upper chest breathers. We usually don’t consciously think about breathing as it happens naturally. Shallow breathing prevents the body’s ability to take in oxygen and may lead to overall diminished health. It tricks the body into thinking you are always stressed. Shallow breathing may impair your thinking, increase blood pressure and heart rate. It keeps you from utilizing the respiratory muscles which can lead to reduced physical ability, lower endurance and becoming winded faster. Shallow breathing may cause sleeping issues and headaches. So what can we do? The techniques to breathing deeply are easy to learn but remembering to practice a few times a day might be harder. There are breathing apps that send you alerts, when you meditate, when you go to sleep. Anything that you do on a regular basis throughout your day can act as a reminder. I do it when I walk my dog. Even if it may feel unnatural to breathe deeply, it comes with many benefits. It allows your body to fully exchange incoming oxygen with outgoing carbon dioxide, slowing heartbeat, stabilize blood pressure and lower stress. Now take a deep breath and enjoy a lovely day 💚💚💚💚C

The lymphatic system and skin health

When your lymphatic system is stagnant, it can show up on your skin. The lymphatic system assists with the expelling of toxins. It lies just beneath your skin. If it is not working as it should or clogged, your skin may suffer from acne, loss of elasticity, premature aging and other skin conditions. The lower body gets a head start in the morning as we get up to walk around and move. To get the circulation going for the upper body try this: clasp your hands behind your head so your elbows stick out. Now in a pumping motion put the elbows together in front of you for a count of 30-50 times. Other ways you can kickstart the system is to dry brush your skin and jump on a trampoline or maybe doing the chicken dance 😉

Waarom we True Organic of Sweden huidverzorging in tubes doen en niet in potten

Er is een reden waarom we onze huidverzorging in tubes (suikerriet) stoppen en niet in potten. Huidverzorging in potten stimuleert ingrediënten om sneller te oxideren (ranzig te worden), omdat elke keer dat u het deksel van de pot opent, u de crème blootstelt aan lucht en licht. Het product met geoxideerde ingrediënten kan minder effectief worden en kan zelfs slecht worden voor je huid door vrije radicalen te genereren. Een potje nodigt ook uit om je vingers erin te steken. Hoe schoon u ook denkt dat uw vingers zijn, er bestaat altijd het risico dat bacteriën en andere microben de crème binnendringen wanneer u uw vingers erin steekt. U kunt een spatel gebruiken, maar deze moet tussen gebruik zorgvuldig worden schoongemaakt om de hygiëne te behouden. Om microbiële opbouw te voorkomen, stapelen fabrikanten hun producten vaak met chemische antibacteriële middelen en dit zou helemaal niet nodig zijn als ze de crèmes in tubes zouden vullen in plaats van in potten.
