IDEAS FOR WIFE APPRECIATION DAY

Personalized jewelry

There’s just no limit when it comes to personalized jewelry. You can choose from all sorts of shapes and sizes, all sorts of gems and metals to get her the perfect gift. Personalized jewelry also allows you to become creative. But, make sure that it goes with her other jewelry as well, particularly with the wedding ring. A piece of advice. If she has a platinum ring, we would advise you to gift her a platinum necklace to go along with the ring. Remember, try and make the jewelry to reflect her personality or the time she spent with you or what she means to you.

 

3D Printed Jewelry

It’s not just about gems and diamonds anymore. 3D printed jewelry have become the latest fad. If your wife is tech savvy, she will fall in love with this beautiful piece of jewelry. There are a number of jewelry designers who offer 3D printed designs  in their latest collections. You can also check out brands like Kimberly Ovitz or Shapeways.

 

Chocolates

Chocolates are something that never grow old as a concept. Flowers wither off, dresses just might end up being the wrong size. But, she is sure to love those chocolates. There is no other sensation like eating chocolate to get her into the perfect mood after a long and tiring day at work. Try to pick chocolates that go with her favorite drink. If she loves coffee, you might try out white chocolates as well. Dark chocolates pair well with champagne. Milk chocolates are ideal for wine lovers.

 

A historical tour

No, we don’t mean that you need to go on a holiday to check out ancient sites and attractions. What we mean is that you jot down a few places that are extremely special to the two of you as a couple. The place where you first met, the place where you went for your first date, the place where you proposed, the place where you first kissed, the list could go on and on. Try to make a schedule with 2 – 3 of the most special places and take her on a historical tour of your relationship.

 

Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed might be a standard idea for all those who simply forgot all about it. But instead of the regular breakfast thing, try and put in that extra bit of effort. Create a love theme for your breakfast. Cut a heart shaped hole in the bread, pop it into a greasy frying pan and crack an egg into the hole. Serve this perfect breakfast with some mimosas and fruit. She’s sure to be thrilled.

 

Good massage

A great massage could be an ideal way of showing your appreciation and helping her to relax. You can also give her a romantic massage and make her feel special and on top of the world.

AFFECTS OF CITY LIFE ON SKIN

Bird's Eye View of City at Night

City life can be extremely exciting – after all the fast paced action, the countless things to do, the excitement and the everyday chaos is impossible to replicate. However, living in the city does have its own problems as well. You might think of a number of issues related to city life, but have you ever thought of how city life affects your skin?  Haven’t you found that you have puffy eyes and dull looking skin after that stressful day at work? Well, that’s just one of the side effects of city life. Living in the city is likely to subject you to a number of problems that can affect your skin – problems such as dirt, stress, pollution, etc. This can lead to dry patches, sensitive skin, blemishes, premature aging and redness. Here are some of the major factors that you need to look out for.

 

Biological Clocks Tick Faster

According to a study, birds living in the city have a faster reproductive clock than those living in the country. One of the main reasons for this problem is light pollution. Even the tiniest amount of light can reduce the Melatonin body, an extremely important antioxidant in the human body. The reduction in Melatonin leads to an increase in free radicals which in turn makes one age faster. The fact that LED screens make the body go off-sync has already been proven. However, how the tiny lights seeping in through those blinds affects your skin and your health is still a relatively new concept.

 

Lack of Sleep

City life can take a toll on your sleep, even if you’re not into late night parties. The daily stress and higher coffee intake along with the occasional late nights all impact your sleeping patterns. The human body produces growth hormones at night which helps it to repair and renew the cells. The body also produces collagen and keratin when it is asleep. Both of these compounds are extremely important to give the body a firm and youthful look.

 

The City Water

The water found in the cities can lead to a number of skin issues. Most cities have “hard” water. This implies that the water found in the cities has high levels of mineral salts such as magnesium and calcium. These salts can reduce the moisture levels of your skin and increase the likeliness of skin issues such as eczema and psoriasis.

 

The Excessive Stress

Living in the city is extremely hectic and stressful. Whether it’s the traffic, your work or just life itself – everything is always fast paced and stressful. When you become stressed, your body begins to produce higher amounts of a hormone named cortisol. Cortisol can end up throwing your entire body out of balance and make your skin begin to look dull and tired. Moreover, the skin also becomes prone to damage and also becomes prone to premature aging.

 

The High Pollution Levels

The air pollution levels in the city are always known to be much higher. Pollution can lead to a number of skin care issues because of the free radicals that it contains. Some of the most common problems associated with pollution include premature aging, loss of elasticity, redness, skin imbalance, reduction in moisture level and irritation.

 

The Fluctuating Temperature

City life also means extreme temperatures – the direct blast of central heating systems in the winters and air conditioners in the summers. Both are known to attack your immune system and dry out your skin.

ANTI-AGING DRINKS

Anti-Aging Drinks Infographic

There are many drinks out there that you may reach for to quench your thirst. If you choose wisely those drinks may offer more benefits to you, including anti-aging! Reach for the beverages in our handy infographic to drink your way to a younger mind and body. The first and most important beverage is water. People really do not drink enough water. You do not need to feel thirsty to drink water, just drink it throughout your day. If you wait until you actually feel thirsty you may already be dehydrated. 6 to 8 fluid ounces of water are recommended per day. If you are active or spend a lot of time in the sun you should drink even more! Juices are also great for better healthy and younger looks. Try carrot or pink grapefruit juice. Pink grapefruit juice contains lycopene which enhances cell communication and protects your body’s supply of collagen. Drink about 7 ounces a day for maximum benefits. Just be aware that pink grapefruit juice may interact with certain medicines, please consult with your doctor if you are any medications. We all know that carrots, and carrot juice, is good for our eyes, but did you know that this natural source of Vitamin A reduces problems caused by skin conditions such as Eczema and improves collagen levels? Drink about 12 ounces a day for a healthy glow. If you love to drink milk or have it with your cereal try using soy milk. About 3 cups a day will provide you with isoflavones to help prevent collagen breakdown. On the other hand, if you like a nice cup of tea with breakfast than grab a mug of green tea. Studies have shown that the antioxidants in green tea reduce inflammation and may even enhance sun protection. Go for 2 – 3 cups a day. Finally, for a nice treat go for a glass of red wine. Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant found in red win helps protect skin from UV damage and reduces the appearance of aging. But more is not better, you should only indulge in 1, maximum 2 glasses of wine per day.

Next time you reach for a beverage to refresh yourself, choose one of our anti-aging drinks to keep body and skin looking and feeling great!
