Everyone needs a Little Sally Hansen for the holidays

I decided to pamper myself with Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oils  and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Mini Sets. My nail tech constantly tells me that my cuticles are dry and really need to be moisturized. Sally Hansen  cuticle oils that are working quite well.

For a limited time only, Sally Hansen’s Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oils come in two fabulous holiday scents, vanilla buttercream and refreshing peppermint. The oils are applied with the attached brush applicator. These amazing scents will linger on your hands for hours. Sally Hansen’s Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oils are enriched with a natural essential oil complex with Vitamin E, its formula leaving skin and nails feeling hydrated, soft, and healthy while helping to protect nails.These oils make a perfect stocking stuffier or gift topper.

 I have one of the  Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure™ holiday mini sets, my only problem is choosing a shade. All four of these colors are perfect for this holiday season. My girls love Sally Hansen Nail Polishes as do I. The chip-resistant polish with Keritin feature makes these the nail polishes superb. The Complete Salon Manicure mini sets are ideal for stocking stuffers and holiday gift exchanges or just a little something extra. You can’t beat the prices and you can find them at most retail and drug stores.

Nurse Your Holiday Hangover with Dr. Christopher Calapai’s TIps

Tis the season for over-indulgence. As we gear up for this jolly time of the year, it goes without saying, most will be sipping on spiked eggnog, champagne, among other festive cocktails. In the moment, this may seem like harmless fun, but in excess can take a toll on your body, and some will be left with the holiday hangover blues.

 

Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O., a New York City Osteopathic Physician board certified in family and anti-aging medicine, suggests the following natural remedies for getting rid of that pesky morning aftermath hangover.

1)     Drink water and other liquids too! Drink a good amount of water before [going out] — at least 6 to 8 glasses, with a little lemon or orange, which are acidic and balance your pH. If in the case this does not happen, rehydrate and flush the impurities from your system with electrolyte filled drinks. I.e. sports drinks, coconut water, or bouillon soup for salt and potassium restoration the morning after.

2)     Ginger is packed with vitamins and minerals making it a great remedy for settling an upset stomach. Add honey, as it contains fructose, which will help the body metabolize and burn off any alcohol still in your system.

3)     Alka-Seltzer – Get a different type of bubbly in your system! Alka-seltzer varieties contain sodium bicarbonate (also known as baking soda), which can help settle an uneasy tummy by neutralizing stomach acid 

4)     Go Bananas for Bananas – A lot of potassium is drained from your body when you drink heavenly. Bananas are bursting with potassium and will the you the giddy-up and go your body may be needing!

5)     Exercise – Even when you don’t feel like it, it can help to stimulate the release of endorphins, resulting in a better mood and a better state of mind as you recover from your hangover.

6)     Multivitamin – Taking a vitamin supplement before drinking and one the next morning with food is a great source of rejuvenating the vitamins lost due to drinking, as alcohol is a natural diuretic.

7)     Eat a big meal before! – We all know how it is to get caught up in the celebrations and fun, but it can be a game changer if you can remember to do this. A large meal will coat your stomach lining, helping to better absorb alcohol.
