Anti-Aging Protection by Logona

Posted on

For years women have tried to keep their skin looking as young as possible for as long as possible and depending on your skin type and its condition it may not be an easy (or cheap) task to try and undertake!

Anti-Aging products have been around for centuries, from the Egyptians that use Milk Baths (1 Warm Water Bath, 4 Tablespoons of Honey & 1 Litre of Milk) to the modern twenty-something that uses tubs and tubs of specially designed foundations and skin fillers.

Why does Skin Aging Occur?

Skin aging occurs for one of a few reasons; it can be simply broken down into two forms:
Intrinsic Aging
Intrinsic Aging is the natural aging process that takes place over the years regardless of the local and external influences to the body. Typically after the age of 20 onwards the body starts to produce approx. 1% less Collagen each year. As a result over time the skin becomes thinner and more fragile with age. As time goes on there is also limited functionality of the sweat and oil glands with less elastin production too.

Extrinsic Aging

This happens alongside Intrinsic and is a result of the sun and damage by the environment (e.g. pollution exposure, tobacco use and other external factors that can later develop into further issues such as Precancerous skin changes like actinic keratosis or skin cancer if you are in a poor quality environment. Extrinsic aging occurs due to the external factors reducing the amount of collagen that our skin produces.

How to: Create lots of light with a Ceiling Lamp

Posted on

One of the most common questions a few of my interior design friends have been asking me recently is how to cut down on the amount of power being used in their home designs; the large crystal chandeliers that were used in the last design certainly liked guzzling power!

With the environment being of grave concern to the upcoming generations more and more clients are taking the route of green living over traditional functionality; this does not have to be the caseyou can have both!

One of the trending fashions for 2013 is a single light mounted on a mirror that reflects all the light that would usually be spread upwards to the ceiling to be reflected back down onto a surface such as a dinner table or kitchen workspace.

This means you are not only saving on the cost of running more than one bulb [1*35w] (the chandelier I referred to earlier uses 30
bulbs [30*60w = 1800w]) but you are also creating a style of mood lighting that should improve your feelings when you are at home.

If you are looking to create a similar idea you can find great quality ceiling lights you just have to think and use your imagination!


Where to store Belongings during a Room Renovation

Posted on

If you are looking to re-decorate or renovate a room then typically you want a nice, clean, empty workspace to get started in. This will mean that if you are decorating a room you already have belongings and possessions in then you will have to move them or store them; for many this can be a problem.

One of the simplest ways to solve this problem is to create a temporary storage space within your house or home already, this could be as simple as moving everything into the spare bedroom or as complex as clearing your old wardrobe out to fit a few old boxes full of papers in – evaluate your own property and determine if this is feasible.

If you believe that it is not possible to fit your items in a room or storage space in your house you may be better looking at domestic self storage options. There are many different products and services available to the general consumer, from small walk in storage units to climate controlled storage rooms. Shop around and find a competitive price from local storage providers that keep your goods safe whilst allowing you to save money to spend on your home renovations.


What is Henna and why would I use it?

Posted on

It’s possible that you have seen pure henna powder in many different natural beauty stores or online, but do you know what it is actually used for? Well, Henna’s powder originates from a Henna plant, also known as Lawsonia inermis and creates skin dyes for body painting. It has been used for this for thousands of years, dating back to the bronze age.

The Henna plant itself has many different uses, and when treated correctly is used for applications such as insect repellent, perfumes and also to dye other materials such as wool, in addition to preserving materials like leather. Pure Henna is simply a name that is given to the powder which the henna plant is ground up into, in order to produce the skin dye. It is often available in many different forms, for example it is sometimes mixed with indigo powder to create a fantastic hair dye product. Similar powders are also used for different tasks. For example, Cassia powder is used to condition the human hair and scalp, and is a natural way to add volume and shine. This powder is often known as “colourless henna”, but does not actually contain any ingredients from the henna plant itself. Another use of these powders is to produce oils from them, such as Brahmi Oil for head massages which will help to relax the min in addition to the conditioning of the hair and scalp.

If you are unsure about whether you’d like to use organic Henna products then tester products are often available, which give you a small sample of the product to try it out, should you wish to do so. These are often available for as little as a pound each, so they are most definitely worth trying out. By using henna for body dyes you can create amazing human art in fine detail and ultimately have the look you want. Or if you’d prefer to just try out henna painting for fun with some friends then it is easy to do so and a great way to spend a lazy afternoon.
