Well, if the first glass to cheer your friends gave you a tiny sensation of warmth and if you are expecting the second glass to make you feel warm on a cold cold night, then you have got another thing coming.
Drinking alcohol is the last thing you should use as a heating method.
In reality, even though one drink could give you the sensation of getting warmer, it actually lowers total body temperature. As you intake alcohol, your blood vessels dilate causing warm blood to pass through closer to the surface of the skin. This is why you feel warm for a moment. After that warm blood is pumped through dilated vessels close to the surface of the skin where you start losing core heat. For this reason alcohol becomes your fast ticket to suffering hypothermia in a cold environment.
An adult human body is made up of 50 to 65% water. Alcohol drinks are diuretic; that is, such drinks will dehydrate your body. Alcohol will hinder your body from producing vasopressin, the anti-diuretic hormones, that will push your kidney to work twice as hard in order to remove excess water in your system. Keeping in mind that the skin is the largest organ in the body, this dehydration will leave your organs parched. As the skin dries inside out, it becomes more prone to the formation of wrinkles. On top of that, the skin will also take on a more pale grayish color; that is because alcohol depletes vitamin A from the body. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that is crucial for the body’s cell renewal and turnover.
A recent study made by the National Rosacea Society showed that 52 percent of 1,066 patients surveyed, suffered from a trigger in their condition and the primary reason was alcohol consumption. Patients suffering from rosacea or run the risk of unwanted permanent redness, will often see a worsening condition when drinking alcohol because of the dilation of some vessels that succumb to the pressure and burst.
Several campaigns have been launched in order to encourage women to reduce their alcohol consumption in 2013. For example, the campaign launched in Scotland, includes a smart phone app, called the “Drinking Mirror” that shows people how they will age should they drink too much. This campaign that particularly targets women encourages the drinkers to think of the health effects as well as deformations that will occur in their appearance.
“Evidence shows us that most people who drink alcohol, particularly at home, have no idea of how much they are actually consuming,” said Alex Neil, the Scottish health minister. “This campaign will show people how small changes to their drinking habits can have a significant impact on their health and wellbeing.”
Also, the doctor who helped with the making “Drinking Mirror” as realistic as possible also stated that:
“Alcohol undoubtedly has an effect on our appearance in the short and long-term,” says GP Dr Samantha Robson. “As well as causing bloating and dark circles under your eyes, alcohol dries out skin and can lead to wrinkles and premature aging.
“Many people forget that alcohol also affects their sleep, which doesn’t do skin any favors. But drinking more than you should, over time can have other, more permanent, detrimental effects on your skin and more importantly your overall health.”
Another similar campaign carried out by the Drug and Alcohol Service of London (DASL) is also targeting female drinkers by bringing awareness to the health effects that alcohol addiction brings; such as hair loss, wrinkles and obesity, plus the other problems like breast cancer, early menopause and memory loss. The campaign’s ad that is spotted in London and is part of DASL campaign is of an alcoholic woman whose face is horribly altered to look more like a man.
The next time you get a chill from the cold weather outside or the tingling urge to have alcohol drinks, take a long look in the mirror and enjoy the sight… it might be the last time you see it. It is true that beauty is not only skin deep, it goes even deeper, it goes to

Laughter is your birth right. Babies begin to smile during their first weeks and laugh out loud only a few months after birth. So go on, give us a loud one.
If you’re the serious type, then start by smiling; it’s contagious! Smile to anything and everything that is even mildly pleasing. Traffic got you down? Smile at the horrible driver that almost caused a crash. Low on cash? Smiles are free! Give it some time, and you’ll be laughing like a pro. You’ll feel happier, more relaxed and more creative in just a couple of weeks.
You may not be able to laugh everything off, but do try to keep things in perspective; don’t carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, and process your stress before it gets the best of you. Life will bring on many problems, so try not to become the problem yourself. If you don’t think life give you enough opportunities to laugh, then just create your own!
How to create opportunities to laugh?
- Pick funny movies and TV series; ditch the drama, and pick the comedies
- Know a funny friend? Even if you think they’re a bit silly, hang out with them!
- Play with a pet, if you like animals, and play with kids! Children are masters at turning problems into games.
- Do something outrageously silly every day, something you never thought you could do. Do it to make other people laugh; remember, it’s contagious!
When was the last time you laughed so hard that you cried? If you cannot remember, then you really need to do something about it. You’re missing out on nature’s best free medicine, so come on, get with the program!
While it is true that the sun plays a major role in premature aging, this does not mean that winter and the cold weather are any less damaging to the skin. The cold air, strong wind and dry indoor heating will all distress your skin, as they work separately and together to dehydrate it.
During the winter, your skin needs moisture and extra care in order to survive the season, and maintain its PH balance. This starts with making a few positive changes to your lifestyle, and here are some that you should consider.
Avoid hot water and strong soaps no matter how tempting it is to soak yourself in the cold, cold weather. You need to limit your time in the shower to maximum 15 minutes; 20 minutes into the shower and your tissues begin to swell. We don’t expect you to bathe in ice cubes, but try to stick to lukewarm water.
Visit your favourite Beauty Salon and get a personalised skin analysis together with the appropriate skin products that will see you through the winter months. Moisturisers for the body and the face are a must-buy; apply those on a slightly wet skin for maximum effect. Sun-screens and lip balms should also be incorporated in your daily routine, especially for ski-athletes. Remember, just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean there’s no sun to worry about.
And you won’t feel thirsty thanks to the cold weather, but your body will be craving water regardless. Remember to drink plenty anyway, water and herbal tea are both good hydration options, and try to stay away from high calorie beverages . Cut down on caffeine and soda while you’re at it, as they can be dehydrating. And of course, eat healthy, and don’t shy away from outdoor sports – good exercise is important for your skin as well as your overall wellbeing. Add omega 3 and vitamins to your diet, especially if you don’t watch what you eat.
Regular rehydrating treatments will help greatly depending on your budget and time, there will always be a tailor-made beauty regiment for you. The famous Vichy Shower treatment is the best for relieving stress, for relaxation, for curing insomnia, for easing muscular aches and for improving the blood and lymphatic circulations. Follow this up with a Ytsara essential oil massage for a taste of absolute heaven.
If you ache after skiing or any other sports then the Ytsara Poultice massage is what you need; bundles of natural herbs and flowers are steamed to the right temperature and then massaged into your aching muscles, while warm oil oozes out of the organic bundle and into your skin.
Your face will need the same attention as your body, if not more; remember that while your body is very often covered, your face is almost always bare to the elements. And instead of leaving it out, why not try some Aromatherapy facials, Gold rejuvenating facials, Minerals enriched Silver facials, Red wine exfoliating treatments, or – for the dazzling glow you see in celebrity shoots – try the Hollywood Oxygen Facial.
May you live a long and health life.
For those who have never had breast cancer, or watched a loved one go through it, it’s very difficult to understand how life-changing this disease can be. Breast cancer is more than a disease, it can take over your life.
The chance of overcoming breast cancer is very high when detected early. And once overcome, the question becomes whether you’ll take on life with the same zeal afterwards. We’re here to tell you yes, yes you will. You will because you are a woman, and women can overcome anger and pain, and can welcome new beginnings; it’s part of the job.
And early detection isn’t all that difficult, breast cancer has enough symptoms for you to watch out for.
- Presence of a lump in the breast
- Swelling, dimpling, redness, skin irritation or soreness of the skin
- Change in breast shape
- Unidentifiable nipple discharge
- Enlarged under-arm lymph node
The good news is that most lumps are benign, but a visit to the doctor should still be the first thing on your list. Even if none of the symptoms exists, you should still plan to get regular check-ups; in fact, you could learn to perform the monthly physical exam yourself. BSE, or breast self-exam, can save your life; 20% of cases are caught early by physical examination!
Here are some tips for a thorough BSE
- Become familiar with your breasts, so that any changes can be quickly noted and checked.
- Once a month, look at and feel your breasts thoroughly, this is especially effective a few days after your period, and a great way to remember to perform the test.
- Passed menopause? Pick an easy to remember day, and make your self-examinations a regular part of your life.
- If you feel a lump, pay your doctor a visit. In most cases this is nothing, but it’s always worth the check.
- Start a journal and record any findings or changes, note details after each BSE.
Breast cancer can hit women from all walks of life and at any age, with variable percentage. But there are some things that all women can do to reduce the risk.
- Breast-feeding; although we hear it’s going out of fashion. That is just silly. Breastfeeding is both good for baby, and decreases the chances of breast cancer.
- Avoid hormone therapy unless absolutely necessary. Long-term hormone therapy increases the risk of breast cancer, and in many cases alternative treatments are available.
- Limit red meat intake, and don’t cook your meats at a very high temperature; roasting, baking, stewing or boiling meat is less risky than frying or grilling.
- Marinate meat before cooking; it tastes better and reduces the formation of HCA (Heterocyclic amines).
- Vitamin D deficiency is linked to breast cancer and several other cancers. Daily vitamin D3 is required because our modern diets often fail to provide enough. It is present in salmon, sardines and some fortified dairy products.
- 5- Limit your alcohol consumption.
- Control your weight; obesity increases your risk, especially if it occurs after menopause.
- Get enough physical activity. It is recommended to walk briskly or swim for 150 minutes a week.
- Avoid pollution; some studies link breast cancer to polycyclic hydrocarbons, which are present in car exhaust and air pollution.
- Limit the amount of fat you eat to 20% of your daily calorie-intake; 7% of which only can be saturated fats and the rest un-saturated fats, such as from nuts, seeds, olives, avocados and canola oils.
- Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables and fruits daily. Include cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. They are said to inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells.
- Try to eat plenty of the following: grapes, mangos, blueberries, apples, citrus fruits, pomegranates, strawberries and kiwis.
No this is not new; infant massage has been around for a long time, but it’s slowly making its way back into our lives as people discover the wonderful benefits of it. It is also one of the many certified ITEC massage courses that we at VIBA provide, and has a prerequisite of Holistic Massage or its equivalent.
The duration of the course is 50 hours, and it is available in both group settings and intensive one-on-one sessions. This course includes a wide range of interesting topics such as the benefits of massage, sleep patterns, parenting styles, effects of the mothers’ postnatal depression on the infant, bonding with the infant, common ailments and contraindications to massage, correct hygiene procedures, classical massage movements, and adapting massage to special needs.
And you don’t need to be a career masseuse to benefit from this; our workshops can teach expecting moms how to keep up the connection with their babies after birth. Remember, the embryo was once warm, and floating in mom’s womb; the child used to be in touch with the mother’s every movement, used to listen to her voice, heart beat and every breath she takes. Disconnecting him suddenly might make him feel abandoned, and if mom can keep up the warm touch a bit longer then the feeling of well-being, comfort and security can last him a lifetime. And learning how to massage your child has some undeniable benefits, including improved quality of sleep, improved immune system and better muscle development.
