Detox and Deep Cleanse

Your skin care has taken a back seat and the trusty make-up wipe has been your skin’s saviour (just about.) It’s served it’s purpose, but it’s safe to say your skin is in need of a deep cleansing treatment. Alas! After cleansing and removing make-up, we recommend applying our award winning Charcoal Masque. This deep cleansing clay mask will help to absorb and remove skin impurities in no time, while the Walnut shell will help to gently buff away any uneven skin texture.

Tips to Survive Summer Festivals

Festival season is just around the corner – that means music, partying and hopefully some beautiful weather! Don’t forget Perspirex for those hot days, so you can safely concentrate on enjoying the music with your arms in the air.

We are approaching high season for summer music festivals. Every week, a new festival will have something to offer all genres of music lovers. Whether you are a seasoned festival-goer, have experienced festivals a few times or are a beginner, here are some things to anticipate to and be ready.

Many look forward to free-spirited fun filled times with friends, breaking the routine from their everyday busy lives and relaxing to good music in the twilight.  However, be prepared for long line-ups for toilets and washing stations.  You may want to think about putting together a festival kit that most will envy.

We recommend that you pack the usual items including sunscreen, water, toilet paper and something for a headache.  Always have cleansing wipes or hand sanitizers at hand when you need it most. Dry Shampoo is also an ingenious product to include in your kit, which helps revitalize your the hair.

Also be sure to use Perspirex antiperspirant as part of your evening routine before going to the festival. This ensures that you are protected from perspiration and sweating for up to 3-5 days. If the festival lasts longer, just bring Perspirex and apply it after a wash on dry skin before bed.

New Happy Little Bodies and Why Moisturizing is Essential in Eczema Care

Reposted from MommyConnections  MommyConnections

We first started noticing skin rashes and flare ups on my son when he was 2 years old.  Although the dermatologist told us it was mild eczema, he would scratch until his skin would become raw.  And as the weather got cooler and we started to run the furnace, his skin irritation and dryness would worsen.

We learned many tips and tricks to help, including lukewarm baths, putting a humidifier in his room in the winter months, using only gentle skin cleansers without harsh ingredients, and of course, keeping his skin moisturized.  The treatment of eczema is really a regimen, and use of an appropriate emollient is integral part of eczema management.

Moisturizers and skin protectants help soften the texture of skin and relieve severe itching caused by excessive dryness. Moisturizers also add a protective layer that helps keep the skin hydrated and helps protect the skin from irritants.

We have found that moisturizing with Flexitol Happy Little Bodies covers several aspects in our son’s skin care regimen.  At bath time, sulfate-free Happy Little Bodies Body Wash and Shampoo acts as a gentle shampoo and cleansing wash, with 1% colloidal oatmeal to help keep his scalp and skin moisturized.

We would follow-up bath time with Happy Little Bodies Moisturizing Lotion, and use it on a daily basis as part of the regimen. The moisturizing lotion with 2% colloidal oatmeal provides 24 hour moisturization, and is free from fragrance, parabens, steroids or parabens.

Finally, for more difficult skin irritations, we would apply Happy Little Bodies Eczema Relief Cream with 5% colloidal oatmeal, which helps soothe rashes and flare-ups.

One more tip for itchy skin, it’s very hard not to scratch that itch and further damage your skin – so remember to keep their finger-nails trimmed. And look for 100% cotton fabrics and avoid rough, scratchy fabrics.

You can find Happy Little Bodies in Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart stores.

How do you handle situations with a high amount of stress – like weddings?

In light of the upcoming wedding season, we thought some advice on sweat control may come in handy. Weddings are beautiful, elegant occasions full of love and shared with friends and family. People love to dream about their own wedding day, but we often forget how stressful they really are. Psychologists consider weddings to be one of the most stressful of life’s typical milestones. It makes sense – the bride and groom want everything to be perfect. Unfortunately, high stress situations can be a significant source of nervous sweating.

If you’re the type of person who has sweat issues like hyperhidrosis, these high stress situation have an extra layer of difficulty. Worrying about perfection causes sweating, and this sweating makes you even more flustered, continuing the sweaty cycle. No one wants extensive sweating to distract them from what’s really important.

Don’t let sweat overshadow your day. For starters, work on minimizing the source of the stress. Choose professionals that you trust to handle all of the organization. You should have high confidence in the people who help you prepare so that you can relax and let them take the reins. It’s also good to surround yourself with positive people who help you stay calm. Once you’ve done that, you can rest a bit easier. When the big day finally arrives, choose a reliable antiperspirant that you can trust, like Perspirex. You can be assured that your day will be all about your wedding, and not your sweating.

X3 Foaming Hand Sanitizer Review

Hey eveyone,

I’m a new fan of the X3 Foaming Hand Sanitizer, especially since it is alcohol free and it doesn’t have much of an odour at all, which I really like. I also found that many hand sanitizers dried out my hands, but the X3 Foaming Hand Sanitizer uses a moisturizing formula so that this doesn’t occur. My hands never felt dry after using it compared to other sanitizers where I found myself looking for hand cream.

New Packaging x3 clean 250

X3 Foaming Hand Sanitizer is easy to use too! It comes in a 250ml bottle or a smaller 75ml portable bottle that pumps so you can easily rub it into your hands to disinfect them. I think the X3 Hand Sanitizer is also a good option for children, as it is non-toxic, alcohol-free and non-drying to the skin. It is a great way to keep your hands clean of germs and bacteria in between hand washing and to avoid getting sick during cold/flu season.

X3 also makes a travel sized spray sanitizer that is perfect for taking with you. It is also alcohol and scent-free and comes in a small convenient 8ml spray bottle. It’s a perfect way to quickly and easily clean your hands wherever you are.

You can find X3 Foaming Hand Sanitizer  at Select Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Select Guardian, Select IDA, and Select Value Drug Mart stores. Or it can be found on our website by clicking HERE.

Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂

Me4Kidz Cool it Buddy Instant Cold Pack Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m writing about the Me4Kidz Cool It Buddy Instant Cold Pack, which trust me, you don’t need to be a kid to use! The Instant Cold Pack is very easy to use and perfect for fast pain relief. Any time you would apply ice to help relieve the pain you could likely use the Me4Kidz Cool it Buddy Instant Cold Pack. The pack has a very cute design on it which is great for kids but really anyone can use it. You pop the inner bag of liquid and shake the contents together and it will instantly get cold and be ready to use. Ice tends to be a lot messier (for me anyways) and always ends up dripping everywhere so the Me4Kidz Cool It Buddy Instant Cold Pack makes things so much easier. It is also flexible so it can be used pretty much anywhere the pain is experienced.

The thing I love about the Instant Cold Pack is that it can be taken with you and used anytime. I have found that sometimes when injuries occur you may not be in a location with easy access to ice. This type of situation is where the Me4Kidz Cool It Buddy Instant Cold Pack is perfect! I used to always have instant ice packs just in case something happened while playing sports but I have found that they are getting harder and harder to find so I was pretty happy when I found out that Farleyco distributes them at select independent retailers.
The Instant Cold Pack works very well at helping to relieve pain. Mine stayed cold for around 20 minutes but by then I was ready to take it off anyways. I would definitely recommend the Me4Kidz Cool It Buddy Instant Cold Pack, especially if you or your child plays sports, travels or goes camping so that the next time something happens you are ready and can quickly start reliving any pain.
Me4Kidz also makes a reusable cold pack that can be kept and home and used again and again!
For more information about the Me4Kidz Cool it Buddy Instant Cold Pack, Check out our website by clicking HERE

I’ll post again soon, take care 🙂
