Crafting!

I love to craft! Not only making my jewelry, but making t-shirts, rerurb-ing furniture, modge podge, sewing and just about anything creative. And with all this crafting there is an upside! A is reporting that crafting not only eases stress and increases happiness, but it can help those who suffer from anxiety and depression, and may also protect the brain from aging. So keep crafting!

Benefits of Massage

Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.

While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint pain

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.

Despite its benefits, massage isn't meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you're trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have. Curtesy of mayoclinic.com

Smooth Perfection

Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo and Conditioner with advanced smoothing micro-emulsion which cleanses and helps tame frizz-prone colour treated hair. There are five reasons you should try it today: curtesy of ulta.com
  • It's the gentler way to cleanse: Detergent shampoos can rough up hair's cuticle, leading to stressed-out strands that are vulnerable to frizz and damage. Cleansing Condition keeps the cuticle intact, so strands stay smooth, manageable and stress-free!
  • Superhero in the fight against fade: Supercharge your color care regimen. A healthy cuticle helps prevent color molecules from escaping, so color stays where it belongs - not down the drain!
  • Creates that "Cool Girl" look: Low-lather formula doesn't strip away natural oils, so hair won't end up too wispy, floaty or "squeaky clean." You'll have just the right amount of sheen and body (think day after a blowout!), with no buildup or residue.
  • You don't have to give up your favorite shampoo: Avoid over-cleansing by giving your shampoo the day off! Swap your favorite Pureology shampoo for Cleansing Condition 1-2 times a week. Super easy, super color protection.
  • Anyone can use it (yes, really!): Gentle and lightweight enough for every hair type! If you have fine hair, use once a week. If you have very coarse hair, condition afterward for the ultimate dose of moisture.
