Your ticket to better skin is just a sip away

slurp-to-healthWOULD YOU POP A PILL for stronger skin or
slurp a drink for a brighter complexion?
What if you could get the
benefits of an intensive night cream just
by shotting a beauty tonic before bed?
Nope, we’re not kidding, and while it may
sound more sci-fi than real life, there’s
a burgeoning breed of nutricosmetics
(aka ingestible skincare) claiming to nix
everything from wrinkles to sun spots and
dehydration – and these beauty boosters
could be about to make your daily serum,
face cream and treatments so yesterday.
Just in case you haven’t been brought up to
speed by the skin-boosting green smoothies
on your fave celeb’s Insta feed, the skincare
world has moved way, way past topical cures.
These days, it’s all about beauty from the
inside out, and it makes serious sense. “Our
bodies are made up of cells, and for your
cells to be healthy, strong and resilient,
they require a whole range of amino acids,
essential fatty acids, minerals, enzymes and
vitamins,” explains Carla Oates, skincare
expert and founder of The Beauty Chef.
While a well-balanced diet would
normally be enough to ensure your bod is
getting the goods it needs, sometimes it’s
not, and your foundation-free glow can
sufer. “Your skin, hair and nails are the last
places to receive nutrients, so if you aren’t
getting enough, these areas literally starve,”
says Oates. The solution? Injecting your
bod with the skin-saving ingredients it’s
missing. We’re talking straight-up collagen
capsules, antioxidant elixirs, probiotic filled
powders and drinkable hyaluronic
acid – the essential building blocks in
the production and maintenance of
a dewy, blemish-free complexion.
Now, this might be the part where you start thinking
it’s too good to be true,
but keep an open mind. “Though there
needs to be more conclusive studies
conducted, there has been some promising
research on ingestible skincare, especially
with collagen, hyaluronic acid and digestible
sun protectors,” explains Emma Hobson,
education manager for the International
Dermal Institute and Dermalogica.
Since it is still a relatively new trend,
Hobson advises checking up on your brand
of choice to ensure their prods are backed
with research before parting with your coin.
Before you go ahead and bin the entire
contents of your bathroom cupboard, hold
up. You should probs hang onto your face
serum a little longer. “Topical skincare
is still very important,” Oates says, so to
score the best skin possible, stick your
finger in both metaphorical pies.
“Combination skin therapy can really
benefit the overall health of your skin,”
adds Hobson. “By working in tandem,
you can target not only the external
environmental challenges your skin
faces, but also the internal ones.”
Once you’ve picked your poison,
keep in mind that just like your topical
treatments, ingestible skincare doesn’t
work overnight. “Since everyone is slightly
diferent, especially when it comes to the
workings of their digestive system, it’s
likely there will always be varying results
from person to person,” Hobson advises
– so it’s best to sip and wait, friends!

Beauty tips

a1-beauty2MISS THE RED-EYE
Time to focus: a new US study * has found that the whiter
your eyes, the more happy, healthy and attractive you
seem. Why? Eye redness is caused by diluted blood vessels and is most frequently the result of illness or tiredness. But make-up artists has a trick to counteract this: “Use your eyelash curlers at the root, and squeeze very gently in the middle and the tips, too.

can see, and the brighter your eyes look.” Try a Suqqu

suit all eye shapes. And always look on the bright side.

Aromatherapy store

Aromatherapy store – shop for your alternative medical needs

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils and essences extracted from flowers, herbs, and trees for health and well-being of the users. In the ancient times, the kings would despatch people deep into the jungles, often faraway from the kingdom in search of herbs with medicinal qualities. As kings and kingdoms were lost in oblivion, so was the practice of collecting herbs. With the renewed interest in herbs and aromatherapy, scientists are now researching on herbs located in different parts of the world. The research of these scientists is brought to the benefit of common people in the form of aromatherapy store.

An aromatherapy store resembles a local chemist’s shop, which stores medicines and other formulations. A multitude of herbs sourced from all corners of the world, in raw form as well as mixed with several preparations are available at an aromatherapy store.

The benefit of having an aromatherapy store is that all kinds of herbs are available at one place. A large number of herbs are sourced from the Indian subcontinent, Middle East, Africa etc. Thanks to aromatherapy store, customers residing in Europe, the Americas etc. too can benefit from the herbs. Essential oils, herbs, absolutes, ayurvedic preparations, herbal tea, and quite a lot of aromatherapy products can be purchased at an aromatheapy store.

The quality of products available at these stores is given much attention. Certain products like henna are best and tan the skin strongly when prepared from a newly harvested crop. Through an extensive mechanism of obtaining herbs and plants from all over the world, these aromatherapy stores secure the newly harvested crops of the henna plant. State-of-art equipments and processing is used to extract quality products, here henna powder and paste. Similarly, strict procedure is followed to uphold the quality of other aromatherapy products.

Most aromatherapy stores stock products, which have been certified as to their quality. Essential oils with certification from ECOCERT International are well acclaimed through out the world. ECOCERT International certifies as to the plant or raw material having been organically farmed. In the UK, essential oils need a certification by Soil Association.

Many aromatherapy stores have opened their chain of shops in numerous cities, often spanning several countries. The proprietor of these aromatherapy stores are capable of catering to the requirements of customers residing in other countries of the world. Additionally, it becomes easier for the proprietor to research on newer formulations and adds them to the list of aromatherapy products.

However, not all aromatherapy stores are able to expand their business thus. Expanding business beyond the contours of one country often becomes difficult and may not be economically viable. So, how do these customers meet the requirements of their customers? An online shopping cart solves the problem being faced by the proprietor of aromatherapy store. In the process, the aromatherapy store can expand its operations.

An online shopping cart works through a website. An aromatherapy store will have a website designed for itself. A website is available online; therefore, customers spread far and wide too have access to the website and its contents. When customers visit the website, they view the several products advertised there. Customers can book online orders through the website. Proprietor will then ship the requisite aromatherapy products as soon as possible.

Most aromatherapy stores hold the products in multiple shapes and sizes, suitable for different demands. Expensive oils are available in sizes of 2ml and 1 dram. Regular essential oils are available in relatively larger container sizes such as 5ml, 10ml and 15ml. The appropriate size and type of containers too can be purchased at an aromatherapy store. These stores also hold aromatherapy accessorises such as incense burners, aromalamps, essential oil diffusers, inhalers, etc. Therefore, all the demands of people regarding aromatherapy products can be met here at an aromatherapy store.
