How To Plan Ahead For A Spring Break Vacation

The weather outside is still pretty lousy, but that can’t stop you from daydreaming about the future. Although it is still the heart of winter, it is not too early to start planning for that highly anticipated spring break vacation.

You know your destination and the mode of travel that you will use, so your next step is to plan which clothes to bring. Spring is an infamously unpredictable time of year, sometimes wet, sometimes dry, sometimes cold and sometimes unseasonably hot. To that end, when you plan to pack for a winter vacation, pick a fabric that stands up to all the options – go for Merino wool.

Merino wool is a favourite among travelers for outdoor apparel. Sheared from the Merino sheep, this is an all-natural fabric whose garments are not only biodegradable, but are also lightweight and breathable.

Merino wool is perfect for spring, especially outdoors trips, because of its superior moisture management. Thermal underwear, tee shirts, and socks made from Merino wool allow you to stay warm or cool, depending on the outside temperature. And while you might think the wool would be itchy, Merino wool is in fact incredibly soft.

For a closer look at some garments made specifically with travellers in mind, look at these options you can buy online – not only are they perfect for temperature regulation, but they also look very stylish, a combo you don’t often find. The link here is for socks, but this site also carries t-shirts, underwear, sweatshirts, and other great basics.

Another reason Merino wool is perfect for spring is because it allows for easy travel. It allows you to pack light, and it eliminates the need for constant laundering. These garments are made to withstand odour, because the lanolin coating the fibres has antibacterial properties, as well as moisture management properties. This means that the clothing will last for weeks without needing to be washed – yes, you heard that right. Because you will not need to pack as many clothes, you can have more room in travel bags for bringing back souvenirs. 

Another good benefit of merino wool is that it is wrinkle free. When you arrive at your vacation destination, just take the tee shirts out of the bags and give them a shake. Whether you fold, roll, or stuff them into your bags, they will come out looking like they were just pressed.

Planning your spring break vacation early will alleviate the stress that usually comes with “panic planning” – the anxious feeling of having to do everything at the last minute. You will have plenty of time to buy merino wool online, and try it on before braving the cold of your vacation destination.

You can feel confident that your body will be able to endure the weather while you are having an exciting time exploring the many outdoor adventures on your vacation schedule. Plan ahead for your spring break vacation with merino wool at the top of your list, for a clean, comfortable and light vacation.

Is Beauty Sleep a Real Thing? Plastic Surgeon explains how to anti-age while you snooze

RESEARCH SHOWS THAT BEAUTY SLEEP IS A REAL THING!

PLASTIC SURGEON EXPLAINS HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR ZZZ’s

www.drmanishshah.com

When it comes to your beauty routine, very few things are free, but sleep costs nothing and may be the closest thing to a fountain of youth. Dr. Manish Shah is a Board-Certified Denver, Colorado plastic surgeon.  A 2017 study found that two days of sleep restriction negatively affected participant’s perceived attractiveness, health, sleepiness, and trustworthiness. Dr. Shah explains that, “Your body repairs itself and recovers while you sleep, and that results in a long list of benefits for anti-aging and appearance.”  Most experts agree that 7-9 hours a night is ideal.  It’s time to maximize your shut eye for anti-aging.

Here are Dr. Manish Shah’s Tips for Beauty Sleep

Sleep on Your Back

“Sleeping on your stomach or on of your sides means there is constant pressure on your face. Over time, this action will produce unwanted sleep lines. You can remedy this by sleeping on your back,” says Dr. Shah. This way you will not apply any pressure to your face. For many people though, this might be uncomfortable, and you can’t control your involuntary sleep movement leading you to a side or stomach position. You can practice and can get used to it over time.

Use an overnight product and put a glass of water on your bedside table

Washing your face can dry it out and sleeping can also dehydrate skin, especially if you snooze in a low-humidity environment. While staying hydrated by drinking water can help to some extent, what your skin really needs at night is a topical moisturizer. For a more supercharged product, try an overnight sleeping mask such as https://brazilianskin.com/collections/all-product/products/acai-triple-stem-cell-complex-mask This is an Acai Triple Stem Cell Complex for $59.99.  Potent Açai Triple Stem Cell Complex Mask is an overnight mask application crafted with an innovative, breathable, and nourishing film ingredient that functions as a transdermal penetration medium to facilitate the complete absorption of the “Grams Triple Stem Cell Complex.”

Pillowcases Make A Difference

Dr. Shah explains that, “While facial creasing has a lot to do with sleep positioning, a change in pillowcase might be the answer. There are numerous benefits of silk for good sleep. Silk pillowcases are a great way to wake up creaseless in the morning. The smooth texture of silk is gentler than cotton and may help prevent sleep wrinkles, as well as reduce skin irritation. Its tightly woven fibers also don’t draw out moisture and natural oils as cotton does, leaving your skin better hydrated.”

Stay away from salty foods and alcohol around bedtime.

If you’re craving a midnight snack or drink, be mindful. While some foods, a light, carb snack like crackers or an apple, can actually help your sleep, many others can disrupt your sleep and wreak havoc on your appearance. Alcohol and salty food can have a dehydrating effect on the body. To compensate, your body starts collecting natural fluids around the eyes, among other places, leading to that dreaded puffy-eye look. Dehydration is claimed to lead to formation of dark circles under the eyes.

Wear your hair up — but not in a tight bun.

It’s a good idea to keep your hair out of your face while you’re sleeping to keep its natural oils from wreaking havoc on your complexion. But avoid pulling it into a really tight bun or ponytail because that can cause hair breakage, especially around the hairline. Dr. Shah suggests wrapping it up in a scarf (silk would be ideal).

Keep makeup remover by the bed

“No matter how tired/drunk you are, going to bed with your makeup on will only be worse the morning after (clogged pores, irritated eyes, oily residue etc.). Make it less of a chore by keeping some good-quality face wipes by the bed for a fast, effective cleanse. It’s not ideal to rely on convenience cloths every night in place of a deeper clean, but on late nights they’re skin saviors, says Dr. Shah.

Wear A Silk Sleep Mask

Avoiding light when you sleep is crucial to getting quality rest. Dr. Shah explains that, “An eye mask completely eliminates vulnerability to light, preventing it from interfering with your sleep. For the best results, use a silk eye mask. Since skin is susceptible to wrinkling, make sure that the material pressing against your face is as soft as possible.”

Keep the Temperature Low

At night, your body’s natural temperature declines. Keeping the temperature in your bedroom low is good for both your metabolism and your blood flow. Dr. Shah explains that, “This is important because improving your blood flow helps oxygenate your skin, keeping it plump and even-toned for the day ahead. Maintaining a cool temperature in your bedroom will also help reduce redness in your skin.” The National Sleep Foundation recommends keeping your bedroom between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit for an optimal night’s sleep.

Stop Spending so Much Money at the Dry Cleaners

If paying for your dry cleaning bill leaves you feeling winded, you need to ask yourself if you’re making the right decision. Read this handy guide to see if you can save yourself some money when it comes to washing your wardrobe.

Find Out What Should Go to The Cleaners

Certain garments will be sensitive to heat from dryers and tumbling from washing machines. For instance, tossing a heavily embellished dress into the machine and running it through a spin cycle could send hundreds of beads into the basin.

One of the ways you can tell if clothes should go to the dry cleaners or not is by checking the material. Materials that need professional care and specific chemical solutions usually include:

  • Leather
  • Suede
  • Chiffon
  • Rayon
  • Fur
  • Dark silk

Find Out What Clothes Can Stay Home

An excellent way to confirm whether you should dry clean clothes is to check the tag ahead of time. A tag will say “Dry Clean Only” if it must go to the professionals. A tag that only says “Dry Clean” means that it’s recommended, but it’s not the only way to properly wash the item. In many cases, this tag means that you can do it on your own.

You should always check the tags to find out exactly how to wash clothes at home without ruining them. It will have symbols that indicate specific washing, bleaching, drying and ironing instructions. Print off a copy of laundry tag symbols and put it up in your laundry room so that you don’t make the wrong guess and shrink your favorite blouse by accident.

As long as they don’t have embellishments, these fabrics are usually fine to wash at home:

  • Linen
  • Wool
  • Cashmere
  • Nylon
  • Polyester
  • Cotton
  • Denim

Delicate garments like wool, lingerie, hosiery, and light silks can be cleaned at home, but not by machine. You should hand-wash delicates by submerging them in a tub of cool water mixed with a mild detergent and letting them soak. Rinse them, then carefully squeeze out the water and lay them on a flat white towel to dry.

If you really want to get professional results but you don’t want to pay the price, one way to cut your dry cleaning bill is to buy an at-home dry cleaning kit. All you have to do is pre-treat clothes with a special spray for removing stains and odors, then place them in a reusable garment bag and toss it in the dryer. You can get the kit for the cost of one visit to the cleaners.  

Learn Basic Alterations

A lot of people go to their local dry cleaners to fix up their clothes after they’ve cleaned them. While it’s convenient to have the cleaner do the alterations, you could shave the additional costs from your bill by learning to do simple repairs on your own.

Now, taking in a suit jacket is not a task recommended for a beginner, but you can replace buttons and learn how to hem pant legs, skirts, and dresses with the help of online resources. These skills will make sure you trim your regular bill and keep your clothes in good condition. Another reason to learn simple alterations is that you can get thrift store clothes and make them look brand-new.

If you want to see what other ways you can cut costs when it comes to your clothes, you should check this out — it’s a guide to creating a fashionable and professional wardrobe while staying frugal. You’ll find practical tips on what garments to prioritize, what mobile apps to use, and how to calculate your shopping budget.

The post comes from the MoneyKey blog, which is a company offering online loans for people who need to make quick payments. These loans are not designed for clothing purchases — these are for minor emergencies like unexpected car repairs, surge electrical bills, and broken toilets. When your life is interrupted by a problem that requires immediate attention, but you don’t have the money to take care of it, you can apply for a loan and get approved fast.

A better way to deal with these dilemmas is to have a rainy-day fund with money stored away, so you can fix that toilet or pay that bill right off the bat. Reducing the money that you spend at the dry cleaners every month is a great way to start building up this fund.

Don’t assume that you always need to send your favorite clothes to the cleaners. The owner won’t tell you that you can safely wash and fix the items at home — they will gladly accept the extra payment. Check the fabric, inspect the tags, and see if you can do it yourself for a mere fraction of the price.

YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING HEALTH QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY A NEW YORK INTERNIST AND GASTROENTEROLOGIST

https://tourocom.touro.edu/academics/faculty/harlem/niket-sonpal.php

Many conditions like cancer and diabetes are difficult to talk about with your doctor because of the burden of these diseases and the hardship of the symptoms and treatment. Other ailments are just plain embarrassing. Not to worry, you are not alone in feeling bashful about certain issues you may be experiencing. The good news is, most of these embarrassing conditions are not life threatening and if you have the courage to speak to your doctor, “you will find that your doctor is trained to talk about sensitive issues in a manner that is both considerate and informative,” says New York Based Internist and Gastroenterologist, Dr. Niket Sonpal.

While you are still working up the courage to make an appointment with your doctor, here are the top 5 embarrassing questions you may have with insight from our expert.

1.     I’m still young and I get hemorrhoids. Why is this happening and what can I do?

Though hemorrhoids are more prevalent in adults 40 – 65 years old, young people may still have symptoms associated with hemorrhoids. It is estimated that 75% of the population gets them at some point. Hemorrhoids are common and usually not life-threatening. “What you need to keep in mind is that Hemorrhoids are a symptom of a variety of conditions,” says Dr. Sonpal. “Observe your symptoms and report to your doctor what you feel. Especially in the case of extreme rectal bleeding, lower stomach pain, and unexpected weight loss. These are all symptoms of a more serious condition like colon or rectal cancer, which is most common in people over 40. 

2.     I have a cold sore on my mouth, if I perform oral sex on my partner will I transmit to them?

“Yes, it is possible and common for someone with oral herpes to unknowingly transmit the virus to their sexual partner through oral sex,” explains Dr. Sonpal. Using protection is the safest way to prevent this from happening even during oral sex. Herpes is transmitted through skin contact so barriers like condoms are effective in reducing the risk to your partner. Usually, people are more cautious about unplanned pregnancies and diseases transmitted through fluids than they are about oral sex and it’s common for them to have oral sex without condoms. This can lead to, not just the transmission of herpes but other viruses like the previously mentioned HPV. Dr. Sonpal’s advice is to stay tested and don’t be afraid to ask your doctor for the pertinent exams if you know you’ve been exposed.

3.     Why is my stool green?

Dr. Sonpal explains that, “It can be jarring for people when they experience it the first time but it is rarely related to anything serious. Green is under the umbrella of acceptable stool colors. Most commonly stool will be brown but depending on what you eat you may have occasions where the volume of vegetables you eat affect the color of your poop due to the chlorophyll.”

Other causes can be food coloring, “Children are often exposed to the experience sooner or later because of cereals. Some kids think it’s cool. This is not related to something serious,” says Dr. Sonpal.

Other causes could be medications, coffee, alcohol, and spicy foods. Dr. Sonpal elaborates that if the green stool is not accompanied by diarrhea, nausea, or pain, which could indicate food poisoning, then you shouldn’t worry too much about it.

4.     Why am I gassier during my period?  

Studies have shown that high percentages of women, with and without Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), complain about increased gas and bloating during their menstruation. “Your body’s hormones are acting up and you may be more sensitive to certain foods than normal,” explains Dr. Sonpal. He recommends avoiding foods high in fiber. These foods tend to increase the bloating as they are meant to keep you full for longer. “If you live a sedentary lifestyle your digestive system might already be slow. Don’t skip out your fitness routine or your late afternoon walk as it can be a key part of keeping your digestive system working during your period, says Dr. Sonpal. He also recommends cutting off the sugary and carbonated drinks which increase the bloat.

5.     I’m young, why am I having the constant urge to go urinate throughout the day and most of all at night?

This is a tough subject for many people. For older people, it is a sign of aging and they see it as such. The stigma of urinary incontinence keeps them from speaking to their doctors about it until the problem gets out of their control completely. For young people, experiencing urinary incontinence or hyperactive bladder is shocking. We grow up not realizing that these types of issues can affect people at a younger age. Urinary incontinence most commonly affects women and people over 40 but it is totally possible that a person in their 20’s can be dealing with this issue.

6.     I’m a woman- why do I have hair on my nipples?

 Dr. Sonpal states that, “Hairy nipples are normal for women. Seeing black, wiry hairs growing around the areolas can be surprising, but you’re not alone. The percentage of women who have hairy nipples is unclear, and many women don’t report it to their doctor.

In most cases, hairy nipples aren’t cause for concern. For most people, they’re a normal part of bodily changes.”  You don’t need to remove the dark hairs around your nipples. They won’t cause any issues. However, you can remove them for aesthetic reasons if you choose. Several treatment options may help. One can choose laser hair removal, electrolysis, waxing, trimming etc. Speak with your doctor about what is safest.

7.     Is it supposed to smell “down there?”

“Your vagina and its discharge should have a smell, but it shouldn’t be a bad smell and you shouldn’t be able to smell it from a distance,” says Dr. Sonpal.  He adds, “Vaginal discharge and smells are dependent upon hormonal changes, mood changes, hygiene habits, sexual activity, physical activity and clothing.”  If you’re sweating or you’ve recently had sex, you may notice an odor, but it’s normally nothing to worry about. However, if you experience odor plus itching, burning or irritation, it might be a treatable vaginal infection like bacterial vaginosis or the STI trichomoniasis. “Don’t douche,” cautions Dr. Sonpal. That will just remove the healthy bacteria your body needs to naturally clean your vagina.

6 Times It’s Better To Rent Clothes Than Buying Them

The sharing economy has become one of the most popular trends among millennials today, and fashion is certainly not an exception. Many people spend less on fashion purchases and appear to care less about owning an entire wardrobe. Because of this, a new sector on clothing rentals has sprung up. Although it’s been geared mainly towards formal wear given its one-time use nature, a lot of start-ups are already offering rentals for everyday wear. There are many instances that renting clothes is better than buying them, and here are some instances wherein that is true.

1.   When there’s a wedding you’re a part of

As mentioned, clothing rentals are usually geared towards formal wear. This is because formal wear is often just used once. Especially for weddings, wedding dresses or suits can break the bank and is only worn on your wedding day. As such, it’s more practical to rent wedding dresses or suits rather than buying them. By renting out your dress or suit, you can use the excess money towards building your new life instead. The same goes for attendees of the wedding. Most guests are also going to use the dress once, so it’ll also be more practical just to rent it out. The Volte Dress Hire has a good collection of dresses you can rent.

2.   When you have a photoshoot to go to

When it comes to family portraits or corporate photo shoots, you want to look your best. These photos will live forever. Because of this, you may want to consider renting. This will give you more options to choose from compared to your existing wardrobe. It will also allow you to wear something that you may not have the money to spend on outright.

3.   When you go to work everyday

When you’re already working, having a wardrobe for corporate attire is very important. However, sometimes it can be challenging to keep up with regularly freshening up your wardrobe. Imagine that, and you would have to have clothes that mix and match for 365 days a year? So, with work clothes, it can also be more convenient and practical to rent sets of corporate clothes. This way, you’ll always look your best without having to keep buying new items to keep you looking fresh all year round.

4.   When you want variety but not clutter in your life

There are times when you want to keep up with trends and have some variety in your wardrobe. However, at the same time, you don’t want to spend too much or have too much clutter in your room. Renting clothes is the perfect solution. When you rent, you can have variety in your wardrobe and avoid the clutter at the same time.

5.   When you want to wear designer brands to a special event

There’ll be times when you’ll have events to go to where you’ll be required to wear something beautiful. Maybe you want a designer dress or bag this time. Designer clothes can be far more expensive only to wear it once. However, you don’t want to have to shell out too much just for this one time event. The perfect thing to do is to rent designer dresses or bags. By doing this, you’ll get a bang for your buck and look great doing it at the same time. You’ll also be able to save money.

6.   When you want to spice up your life

When you want to experiment on new looks, one of the best ways to do that is to rent out clothes. Renting out clothes will allow you to try on different looks and check whether or not it suits you. By doing this, you’ll be able to choose which looks best on you before having to buy a whole wardrobe collection for that theme. For instance, if you want a more gothic look, you’d be buying outfits that follow this theme. Then, later on, you might find out that it doesn’t suit you. Unfortunately, you end up with a bunch of clothes you don’t want. With renting, you’ll be able to see what it looks like and discard the idea before investing in it.

Conclusion

Renting clothes is a very practical and economical solution for people who want to look good but are also budget conscious. Especially if you’re just wearing a dress once, why not just rent it out, look great, and save money at the same time.
