The Science Behind Body Firming Creams

Posted by Sasha Kaleigh on Jun 27, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits. This tends to give skin a lumpy and dimpled appearance. The condition is most noticeable on the thighs and buttocks. Clinically known as adiposis edematosa, cellulite is believed to be caused by factors such as hormonal changes, genetics, diet, lifestyle factors and even clothing.

Some consider laser treatment as a more permanent solution, but this can be a real burden on your wallet. So, many people settle for a more cost effective option of using firming creams instead.

Millennials and Hair Loss: 5 Reasons Gen Y is Losing Hair

Posted by Sasha Kaleigh on May 10, 2017 9:00:00 AM

As Gen-Yers (more colloquially known as “millennials), age into their twenties and thirties, they are faced with a sobering condition, hair loss. The American Hair Loss Association explains that two-thirds of men will have some hair loss by age 35 (which is just about the upper range for millennials), while 85% will have a relatively thinned out mop up top by age 50. Mistakenly thought to be an exclusively male condition, 40% of hair loss sufferers are actually women. Recently, millennials are reporting hair loss much earlier than previous generations. As the first generation to grow up in the internet age, they’re far more likely to seek out information and share in experiences, online or otherwise. Generation Y is not one to accept defeat at the hands of mother nature either. In fact, millennials are proving to be far more proactive about meeting the challenge of hair loss head on.

Hair has always been a huge part of personal style. It’s no secret that women spend countless hours and dollars per year maintaining and styling their hair. While hair trends change from year to year <link to 2017 hair trends>, full and healthy hair has always remained in style and coveted by many.

Unfortunately, female hair loss isn’t widely talked about in mass media. Instead, women face societal pressure to opt for extensions or wigs in order to achieve the appearance of femininity. It’s no surprise then that hair loss is a particularly sensitive and stressful subject for women. Since the topic of female hair loss is seldom discussed, many women don’t seek treatment, which results in a worsened condition and a negative impact to self-esteem.

Confronting hair loss can be a sore subject. However, the first part of moving forward is understanding the root causes. If you are experiencing thinning hair there may be a number of reasons for this. We’ve rounded up 7 health situations associated with hair loss.

How Massaging Your Scalp Can Promote Hair Growth

Posted by Sasha Kaleigh on Nov 8, 2016 1:16:03 PM

When was the last time you went in for a massage? A deep, relaxing, spine-tingling (in a good way) massage? If you can remember that glorious feeling, hold it tight. Now, imagine it’s happening just for your scalp. As George Takei might say (you’ll definitely read this in his voice for effect): “Ohhh myyy”! 

A well-done massage feels great, there’s just no two ways about it. But scalp massages are just not common enough. While that full-body massage might help you relax both body and soul, a scalp massage for hair loss is the one thing you really need in your life. The stress of work and life, in general, can make a regular massage feel necessary. But it's time to stop ignoring the hair loss which can also come with all of that stress! A scalp massage for hair loss results in faster hair growth and, quite simply put, it’s just a little slice of heaven.
