May 5 (5/5) is the celebration day for SebaMed, a German manufactured medical skincare line, because that day correlates to the pH value 5.5 of our skin. This brand ensures that its products are a pH 5.5 to help maintain healthy skin. To make this day special and to spread awareness of a healthy lifestyle, I was invited to spend a day of pampering with access to the gym and fitness classes at the Hilton hotel. It started out with an hour’s massage session with Dr. Burgener products, followed by a relaxing afternoon at the spa.
A while ago I received a gift basket from Beesline. It is a Lebanese cosmetic brand that prides itself in its natural ingredients mainly apitherapy, which is the use of honey bee products. I am a huge fan of natural products and tend to search for them when I am at a department store or a para-pharmacy as I have sensitive skin, especially my face.
Inside the bag was a pair of anti odor socks, lip balm, sea salt foot scrub, anti shine facial mask, and beeswax ointment.
The facial mask was thick in texture that is easy to rub with a pleasant scent.
Who among us doesn’t suffer from dry flaky skin during the winter? It truly is a dilemma when the harsh cold weather strips the moisture from our skin, causing damage. Our hands in particular are constantly exposed, and if you want something a bit more efficient than lotion, give the following a try.
Last night I thought of pampering my hands in a little scrub I made up. Now I’m sure this exists somewhere and it isn’t an invention, but here’s what I did.
1. I got a plastic bowl and filled it up with hot tap water.
In the cold weather we are all tempted to soak in a long hot bath or shower, but that is not a good idea for many reasons among which are the following:
First, the heat breaks down the skin lipid barriers which help the skin stay moisturized, making it dry and flaky.
Second, it causes the hair to be brittle, weak and easy to break.
Third, pores will open up and the skin will easily attract dirt to enter and causes acne.
The best solution is a lukewarm bath or shower. Its harder said than done, and I am reluctant to do so, but for beauty benefits lets do it!
As summer approaches, so does the hot weather, implying sandal season. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is for a woman’s feet to be properly cared for. I see cracked soles and dry toes so many times, its unattractive and gives off a vibe of someone who isn’t too keen on hygiene.
I am a freak when it comes to being properly groomed, and I am going to share with you my foot care ritual. I do this all year long and not just in summer, and I recommend you do the same for soft feet.
