5 Tips to treat and manage sports injuries

According to statistics, men are times more likely to injure themselves playing sports than women and a fifth of adult injure themselves out playing sport and leave the injury untreated. Most common sport injuries are backache (15%), muscle strains (9%), muscle inflammation (7%), neck ache (6%).

Most sprains and strains can usualy be treated with PRICE technique - Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation and should usually improve within 6 to 8 weeks. However, leaving an injury untreated can lead to long-term, serious implications.

We have 5 tips on how to treat and manage sport injuries:

1. Rest and Elevation! Take a break from the activity that may be causing the injury. Elevate the injured area at or above the level of your heart to help reduce swelling.

 

2. Use cold/freeze products for the first 72 hours to help reduce swelling and inflammation and only when then period is over, the injury should be heated in order to help increase the blood flow to the affected area bringing oxygen, proteins and other nutrients to help promote healing.

 

3. Compression! Use elastic bandages on the first 24 to 48 hours after an injury. This wall of the veins will constrict under compression which will assist in increase the velocity of clood flow through injured area, speed up the recovery process and decrease muscle soreness.

4. Topical analgesics! Topical analgesics e.g. Voltarol Gel, Diclac Gel contain the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) work to relieve pain and reduce inflammation on the affected injured area. Their formulation helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin to enhance delivey to the site of pain without the side effects of stomach irritation.

5. Take sport supplement e.g. Pro-Vitality along with a healthy balanced diet with plenty of fluid! Exercise put added strains on the body, such as the immnue system, muscles and heart. Pro-Vitality contains broad-spectrum multivitamins & minerals, Omega-3 farry acids with powderful anti-oxidants will help in boosting performance and recovery, and helping them avoid injury.

6 Tips For A Healthy "No-Tox" in 2018

January is a great time to make a change to lifestyle. Instead of tryng to detox, simply try "No-Tox" giving your body fewer toxins to deal with e.g. having a regular meals daily, a balanced mix of protein with fruit and vegetables, good fat intake and minimising or eliminating excess carbohydrates and sugar.

 1. Reduce toxins by minimising the daily intake of processed foods, sugar, caffeinated drinks and alcohol. Eat regular meals with plenty of vegetables and moderate fruits as well as raw seeds, nuts and oily fish. They contain powerful antioxidants which will support the natural detocification processes.

2. Give up smoking! Tobacco smoke contains 7000 chemicals! The tar sticks to clothes, skin and insides the lungs. Cigarette smoking depletes many nutrients, including Vitamin C, which helps protect and repair you cells in your body.

3. Keep hydrated with plenty of fluids e.g water or herbal tea! Avoid fruit juice due to their hidden sugar content that may spike up your blood sugar levels! Get a blender to make a smoothie as this retains the vegetables and fruit fibre as well as the key nutrients.

4. Supplement yourself with Skin Vitality 2 or Pro-Vitality Formula to help your body detoxifying process. These conveniently blister strips containing a broad spectrum multi-vitamins, powerful antioxidants, omega 3 & 6 fatty acids for radiant skin and healthy hair as well as helping support healthy heart, muscles, bones and energy levels.

5. Keep moving! Aim for 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity e.g. cyling.brisk walking every as well as strength exercises on two/more days a week. These will work all the major muscles. Sweating is a natural way of eliminating toxins from the body.

6. Sleep! It is important to ensure that you have 7 to 9 hours sleep per day. Sleep is one of the most important factors for successful ageing as well as healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels so its important that you get enough! 

The dangers of detox diet can lead to muscle loss, fatigue and irritability. A change to a healthy diet with some exercise will help reduce the development of bowel disease, heart disease, diabetes and strokes.

Tops Tips Dealing With Skin Dehydration

jane iredale model

We are heading towards colder temperatures and harsh winds. Turning up central heating causing dry air can reduce the Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) in our skin which will results in dehydration, roughness and flakiness. Moving from centrally heated environments into the biting cold can cause broken capillaries and make rosacea worse. 

These are our 4 tops tips on how to deal with skin dehydration:

  1. 1. When the weather turns colder, it's tempting to reach for carbohydrates rich, sugary comfort foods. We recommend you increase the intake healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, oily fish and avocados to keep skin moisturised from the inside out.

 

  1. 2. Supplement yourself with Skin Omega+ to safeguard those essential fatty acid levels. Skin Omega+ is an exceptionally pure essential fatty acids to maintain your skin's lipid layer and minimise transepidermal water loss. It’s like an internal moisturiser for your skin.

 

  1. 3. Switch to an oil-based cleanser e.g. Environ Skin EssentiA Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil which is far kinder to your skin and wont strip of its natural lipids.  Your stratum corneium is extremely delicate and only 0.02mm thick, so, it’s very easily damaged by soaps and cleansers which contain harsh chemicals or required vigorous technique. Gently remove make-up with Environ Skin EssentiA Dual Action Pre-Cleansing Oil, followed by Environ Hydra-Intense Cleansing Lotion to lift away further impurities without stripping the stratum corneum.

 

  1. 4. Using the correct moisturiser and enhance your skin with skin boosters e.g. Environ Focus Hydrating Serum/Environ Super Moisturiser. Environ Focus Hydrating Serum contains hyaluronic acid which holds 1000 times its own weight in water to combat dehydration. For enhanced results, always use alongside the Environ Cosmetic Roll CIT

  1. Environ Super Moisturiser+ is a comforting cream specifically for dry skin, which regulates natural hydration levels and replenishes the moisture barrier.

 

Extra Tips: A Course of Environ Hydraboost or Environ Active Vitamin Facials will deeply hydrate skin with active ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid and lactic acid to smooth and moisturiser your skin.

Jane Hanna Skin #100DayReset Part III (Day 60-90)

#100DayReset Programme (Environ, Advanced Nutrition Programme, Jane Iredale)

Part III of Jane Hanna's Story from Day 60 to 100 - Read on to see how Jane achieved amazing results so far!

 

What can I say! What a journey! Jane has been up and down with her skin journey particularly during days 60 to 80! She did have a little breakout some days and I had advised Jane to come in for two more Environ Cool Peel Facials after her 6 course of Environ Cool Peel Facials previously. 

 

As her pastules and pustules started to disappear, Jane was left with some acne marks. Acne marks are different to scars as they are not raised/pitted. They are flat, pigment marks and in Jane's case they were red in colour.  Jane was quite concerned about her acne marks, I explained to her that these will fade between 3 to 6 months after her breakout has disappeared.

 Skin Accumax Environ Jane Iredale Jane Side 1 min

I explained to Jane that she should start taking Skin Omega+ capsules (Take two capsules a day) and Skin Vitamin C tablets (Take one tablet a day) along with her Skin Accumax capsules as the essential fatty acids and the high strength of Vitamin C will strengthen her skin's immune system, and assist in reducing inflammation and redness of her skin. I also encouraged Jane to keep up her good work with her Environ Skincare regimes - Vitamin A will repair and normalise her skin cells and apply SPF everyday which will prevent the acne marks from becoming darker and shorten their stay on the skin.

Here is the list of products that Jane is currently using

* Environ Sebuwash

* Environ Face & Body Oil

* Environ Colustum Gel

* Environ LACM 1

* Environ RAD SPF 15

 Skin Accumax Environ Jane Iredale Jane Side 2 min

We are going to let Jane explain her 100 Day Journey from Day 60 - 27th June 2017

 

I was going on holidays on July and I was worried that going away and being in the sun I would not able to follow my skincare regime. I made sure I packed all my Advanced Nutrition Supplements, Environ Skincare Products and Jane Iredale Mineral Skincare Products with me.

 

During the day I would leave my skin bare and just apply Environ RAD SPF 15 every few hours and make sure that  I wore a hat and stayed in the shade epsecially between 11am to 4pm. In the evening, I just applied my favourite Jane Iredale Mineral Pure Pressed Base Golden Glow with Jane Iredale Smooth Affair and made sure I spirtzed  my face with Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray a few times a day to keep my skin nourished, calm and hydrated.

 

I strictly followed Emi's (my skincare therapist) advise -  Advanced Nutrition Programe, Environ Skincare and Jane Iredale Skin Care Make Up on holiday that when I came back from my holiday I felt I have new skin as my skin had improved dramatically clearer, so much healthy and the best part the spots have finally disappeared. I am so over the moon and I cant wait to tell Emi my amazing result!

 

As each day goes, I am feeling more confident about my skin and myself!  My family and friends are complementing me so much that they makes me beam. I honestly cant believe how bad my skin was and how low I felt previously! I feel like such a different person now! My skin is rejunevated, brighter, healthy, glowing and I even noticed my pores are definitely smaller. I feel happy and healthy!

 

Looking at the pictures and comparing them is like looking at two different people. I cant believe what a difference this has to my life and to me as a person! I just want to say thank you so much to Emi for helping me on #100 Day Journey and I truly believe by following the THREE PHILOSOPHY on FEED (Advanced Nutiriton Programme), FORTIFY (Environ Skincare) and FINISH (Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup) you will get achieve beautiful healthy skin!

Jane Hanna Skin #100DayReset Part II (day 30-60)

#100DayReset Programme (Environ, Advanced Nutrition Programme, Jane Iredale)

Part II of  Jane Hanna's story from day 30 to 60 - Read on to see how Jane achieved amazing results so far !

 

This photo below was taken on 10 June 2017 Saturday. On day 43, Jane had already have her 3rd Environ Cool Peel Facials plus Environ LACM Home Peel Kit along with her regular skincare remedies.

 

Already, you can see her skin is starting to improve. Her skin look brighter and clearer after 40 days on Skin Accumax, Environ skincare and Jane Iredale make up.

 

 

 

This photo shows the right side of Jane's skin was slightly less angry.

 

 

 

Jane Hanna came in for her first Environ Cool Peel Facial on the 13th May 2017, Friday. Environ Cool Peel Facial is a safe and gentle procedure which removes the excess horny layer of the skin and yet protects the epidermis layer so there is no excessive redness or recovery time. The peeling system is based on usage of Lactic Acid which hydrates and repairs skin cells as well as encouraging skin cell exfoliation revealing fresh and youthful skin. This is especially effective in treating rosacea, acne, scarring, rough texture and photo-damage skin.

 

Usually, I would recommend client's to have a series of Environ Cool Peel Facial for the best results. In Jane' case, I recommended her to have a course of 6 Environ Cool Peel Facials. So, Jane decided to go ahead with the course of 6 Environ Cool Peel Facials, one per week starting Friday 13th May 2017 every Friday thereafter. Each Environ Cool Peel Facial generally lasts about 60 minutes to 90 minutes and there's no down time. After each peel, your skin might feel slightly warm and tight, however most of my clients experience no discomfort.

 

 

We are going to let Jane explain her 100 Day Journey continue from Day 30 - 28th May 2017 

 

I so look forward to have my first Environ Cool Peel Facial with Emi. She makes me feel very welcome and comfortable. Before she gave me Environ Cool Peel Facial, she explained the whole process of the facial and said that I might experience a warm, tingling sensation when she applied LACM 2 (Lactic Acid) onto my skin, however, she said that most clients experience no discomfort.

 

I have to say the facial was amazing! After plenty of cleansing, Emi applied a layer of LACM 2 masque on my skin. I did feel my skin a little warm but not tingly! After couple of minutes, she cleansed and massaged my face with neutralising cleanser. Then, a thick cold creamy mask was applied all over my face including my eye and mouth and the mask was attached to the micro-current machine for 15 minutes. Finally, the mask came off in one piece. I found the whole experience was very relaxing and I think I nodded off for couple of minutes during facial.

 

 

After the facial, Emi recommended that I start the following skincare remedies along with my regular skincare regime....

 

* Environ LACM Home Peel Kit - I applied a layer of LACM 1 with the brush provided in the Kit and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes, then I washed with Environ Sebuwash and applied Environ Colustrum Gel and Environ Face & Body Oil after every night.

 

* Environ RAD SPF 15 - I applied every morning after I cleansed and moisturised my face and neck area. Then, I finished with Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener and Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base Golden Glow. I have to say I am very impressed with Jane Iredale make up range. It's so good and it stays on my skin all day.

 

 

So far, I am happy with Emi's advice and the treatment I received. I found Emi really spent time with me getting to know me and she really wanted the best result for me and my skin. I am really hoping my skin will be clearer soon. 

Jane Hanna

Enjoy Your Summer the Hay-Band Way!

Hay-Band

What is Hay-Band?

Hay-Band operates by exerting pressure on the acupressure point on either carm called the L1-11 (QuiChi) point.  Acupressure is believed to increase the flow of natural energy through the stimulation of various pressure points which promote well-being.

You can use it as a preventative measure or once the hay fever & allergic rhiitis symptoms have started.

 

 

 

How to use Hay-Band?

To locate the point, face your palm down and bend your arm towards you. The point is located at the end of the crease at the elbow. If more than one crease appears, the most prominent should be used.

 

Then slide the Hay-Band up your arm and position the stud facing inwards over the pressure point with the bands passing either side of the elbow.

 

You can wear the Hay-Band on either arm. Id you want additional relief, you can wear the Hay-Band on each arm.

 

It might take 5 minutes to take effect. If you feel there's no improvement in your condition, try adjust the position of the stud. The effect may be improved by applying finger pressure to the stud for 5 seconds periods.

 

Hay-Band should not be worn during pregnancy and suitanle for adults and children over the age of 3.
