Benefits of Abdominal Massage

Abdominal massage has shown to help with a number of issues. Like most forms of massage, it has a relaxing effect that helps the stress reduction. It also increases blood and lymphatic fluid circulation in the region. An increase in blood flow and lymphatic fluid promotes the secretion and elimination of hormones.

Skin Changes with the Seasons, Tips from Kristi Sundberg

Have you ever noticed that skin imperfections occur more often when the weather changes? That’s because the differences in temperature and humidity confuses our skin. Fall and winter tends to bring on itchy and dry skin. This is quite different from spring and summer, so it would be wise to adjust your skincare regimen. Moisturize and exfoliate flaky and chapped skin. This will remove the damaged skin cells and encourage growth of new ones. A lot of people tend to put away the sunscreen after summer is over. I recommend that you continue to use it. The sun is...

Waxing at Home?

Removing hair by waxing is where a warmed waxy substance is applied to skin. The wax binds the hair to a strip of cloth, which is then pulled off in the opposite direction of growth. The hair is removed from the roots so it takes longer to grow back. The hair needs to be about ¼ inch to obtain optimal results. This gives the wax something to bind with and reduces the risk of hairs being left behind. The pain factor could be high, but the first time hurts the most. After the first time the hair grows in thinner. So...

Bobbie’s Beauty Tip – Brushing Wet Hair

Are you brushing your hair wet? If you are, you are most likely damaging it. This is a little known fact. Most people believe that it is easier to get the tangles out of their hair while wet, but that is only because the hair is breaking. Hair has natural hydrogen bonds in it and when it is wet, these bonds are weakened. As the hair dries, the bonds reform and the hair regains its strength. My advice is to gently squeeze excess water from the hair. Squeeze, not wring. A wringing motion puts unnecessary pressure on wet hair...
