Ditching The Dirt With Dog Shampoo

Keeping dogs well groomed is essential in maintaining their healthiness, happiness and hygiene. At times this might feel like a bit of a chore, but keeping your canine’s coat looking fresh makes for more than just a beautiful dog.  It allows your dog to be more clean and comfortable, enables dog owners to identify any unwanted creatures or conditions that may otherwise go undetected and it combats those doggy smells.

Choosing the right type of dog shampoo is more difficult than it seems because selected products can be based on many criteria, including skin type, coat length and medical problems. One thing is certain – dog shampoo is always the best option and human shampoo should be avoided at all costs. Not only is our shampoo at a different pH to that of a dog’s skin, but it also uses much harsher ingredients than dog shampoo. Using it runs the risk of causing your dog to ingest chemicals that may be extremely toxic or harmful. But with such a variety of shampoos for dogs, which one will help your dog ditch the dirt?  

Regular use dog shampoo
This is a very broad category and there are many different types of ‘regular use’ dog shampoo. First, it is important to identify your dog’s skin type; is this particularly oily, dry and flaky or normal? This can be done by looking and feeling your dog’s coat and parting the fur to have a look at the skin.

For those dogs with dry or itchy skin, an oatmeal-containing shampoo is often recommended, as this ingredient relieves some of the symptoms associated with dry skin and allergies and may stop your dog itching so much. Sometimes this type of shampoo contains aloe vera as well which acts as a soothing ingredient. If your dog has problems with dandruff, it is a good idea to look for a rehydrating formula shampoo because these are often specifically targeted for this problem.

Hypoallergenic shampoos are another type on offer, particularly if your dog is sensitive to normal shampoo. Most dog shampoos have a fairly strong scent to eliminate those doggy odours; however, in a few cases, dogs may react badly to this. As a result, hypoallergenic soap is specifically created to be more gentle and free from harsher chemicals that could cause irritation. If washing your dog is a difficult task, it might be worth trying a hypoallergenic shampoo to remove at least one worry of creating discomfort and hopefully make bathing more enjoyable for you and your pet.

For super sleek coats, dog conditioners are also available and sometimes can be found in a 2 in 1 shampoo-conditioner combination. Using a soap that is a dual product can reduce the bathing time required, making it a little easier for owners. The conditioners on the market are often formulated for a specific fur length, so make sure you find one that suits your dog’s coat.

Medicated dog shampoo
If your dog has a particularly troublesome skin condition, for example an allergic reaction or rashes associated with pest infestation, medicated shampoos can sometimes be chosen to combat this. It is worth discussing with your vet first, but medicated shampoos can include antibacterial, antifungal or insecticide ingredients and will tackle a range of conditions from oily skin to itching and flea infestation.  

Waterless dog shampoo
This type of shampoo comes in a spray bottle or as a powder and doesn’t require water, so it’s the perfect choice if your dog doesn’t enjoy being soaked or just needs a bit of sprucing up between washes. Requiring only a simple brush through, it will keep your companion looking and smelling fresh.

There is evidently a lot of choice when it comes to finding the perfect dog shampoo. It is certainly worth testing out a few in the quest to find the most appropriate one for your dog, but keep in mind that over its lifetime your dog may change its requirements, so be prepared to adapt the shampoo accordingly. However, carefully selecting your shampoo will mean that your dog is kept looking, smelling and feeling clean and happy.

Skin Care – Going Back-to-Basics

What We Are Told

Almost daily we are bombarded with a new skin care product and are told that if we use this product, our skin will look younger, smoother, more attractive and so on. We are presented with pictures of young, attractive women who have probably never used the products their faces are associated with and probably never will.

We are lead to believe that ‘the active ingredient’ in these products are a new discovery (usually they also get some sort of pseuo-scientific name) and if we use the product that has this ‘magical’ ingredient we will end up with 20 year young skin – Sure !

The Truth About Skin Care

Skin care is just that – taking care of one’s skin, nothing more, nothing less. How you do this can depend on many things. The health of your skin, money, time, knowledge and probably a number of other factors will determine how much care you give to your skin.

Let’s review what your skin does for a moment. Firstly, it protects the inside of you body from the outside. That is, the skin forms a barrier between our external environment and our body’s insides. It is water proof and at the same time acts as a defence from pollution, microbes and other potentially harmful factors. In addition, it is partly responsible for eliminating toxins from our body in the form of perspiration, and your skin assists the body in temperature regulation. These and other functions are preformed by our skin on a continuous basis.

So how do we take care of our skin, to ensure that it can continue to perform at its optimal level?

Back-to-Basics of Skin Care

There are 3 basic principles that come together in good skin care.

Drinking enough water on a daily basis to keep the skin well hydrated. This involves drinking at least 2 litres of water each and every day, because the body’s metabolism will require this amount of water to function properly. More water is required if we engage in strenuous physical activity or work in a physically demanding environment. You can use the most expensive moisturisers you like, if you don’t drink enough water, your skin will become dehydrated and no moisturiser or beauty treatment will stop this in the long term.
Eating good quality, unprocessed foods such as fruits, grains, vegetables, some dairy and lean meat, will help you to provide the skin with the nutrients it requires to keep performing its vital functions. Your skin needs vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, etc., to function properly and while some natural skin care products do provide many of these nutrients, there is no substitute for nutrients gained from high quality food.
A daily skin care regime that will unclog pores, remove dirt and dead skin cells, as well as provide nourishment to the underlying, living skin cells, is an essential step to good skin care. Now this regime can be quite simple or more involved.

At its most basic, skin care can involve as little as using a loofah on a daily basis when showering or bathing, to remove the dead cells from your body’s outermost layer of skin. Using a loofah not only removes the dead skin cells, but also promotes blood circulation to the outer layers of your skin, providing it with nutrients and oxygen.

In addition, use a mild, natural, pH-balanced (slightly acidic) soap to keep your skin clean and you’re done.

Let’s face it, many people don’t even use a loofah, and couldn’t care less about what sort of soap they use to wash their face and body with. However, more concerned folk, who have an interest in maintaining the health and look of their skin for as long as possible, may be prepared to go a few steps further than that by implementing a good, daily skin care regime utilising natural skin care products.

Implementing a Good Skin Care Regime

A sound, basic skin care regime is more than enough for most people. Using a loofah for their body’s skin, a cleanser, toner and moisturiser for the face, plus an all-over body moisturiser is all that’s required most of the time. In addition, using a clay mask once or twice a week will help to remove dead skin cells and deeply imbedded dirt from the facial skin and pores. An exfoliant can also be used, probably 2-3 times a week, if you’re not using a loofah.

Increasingly, consumers are becoming aware of the potential health risks presented by artificial and other non-natural ingredients in beauty products. We all, well most of us, avoid foods and beverages which contain artificial preservatives, flavours, emulsifiers, etc., for sound health reasons. These days, we’ve extended this concern to other areas of products we use on our body and in our home.

Making use of skin care system for your skin type is the final aspect to good skin care. Most people have two different facial skin types, for example, the forehead, nose and sometimes chin may be slightly oily, while the remaining areas of the face and neck may be slightly dry. It is important to identify your skin type before buying your skin care products, because the ingredients in the products should benefit the skin type you are trying to normalise. You may need to purchase two different skin care systems to accommodate your different skin types, however, more often than not, especially if the skin types differ only marginally from ‘normal’, you may be able to just aim between the two skin types for your choice of toner, and buy a second cleanser and moisturiser

Gel Nails | Sculpting Gel Nails with UV Gel

Sculpting gel nails with UV gel requires thorough knowledge of the application procedure to get the application right. The steps below cover the basic application process for 3 step gel system sculpting.

1. Clean your hands and nails thoroughly using a sanitizer and then push back the cuticles and remove the secondary skin from your nail plate. This can be done using a stainless steel or a plastic cuticle pusher.

2. Once this is done, take a 180 grit file and remove all shine from the nails and shape the free edge. Make sure to remove all the dust from the nails with a lint free nail wipe.

3. Next apply a thin layer of base gel to the entire nail to ensure the whole nail is covered. Stroke the brush from the cuticle to the free edge and ensure that the gel does not touch the surrounding skin. Apply the base gel very thin so that there is maximum adhesion. Also brush the gel on to the nail well in all directions so that you can get an even coverage.

4. Now cure the gel for 1 minute and use a UV lamp that is specific to your system and cure the gel for the recommended timing. Do not remove the tacky layer when done.

5. After curing for a minute, apply the nail forms.

6. Take a good amount of white builder gel on your brush and start at the smile line and apply towards the free edge. Work from the left of the smile line to the right and then work the gel down and back to the left. Create a square shape and fill in the middle. You can use another small brush with a little alcohol to clean the edges.

7. Once the whole hand is done, cure it for 3 minutes. It is best to cure one finger at a time for 10 seconds to stop it from leveling too much.

8. Next apply the builder gel. Start at the stress point just before the smile line and work it back side to side towards the cuticle area. Then pull it back down and over the stress point. Keep going down to cap the free edge. Add an extra gel line along the stress point to add strength and form a slight arch.

9. Once the builder gel application is complete, cure the gel for 3 minutes.

10. Once the gel is cured, remove the nail forms and cure the underside of the nail for 1 minute.

11. Remove the tacky layer with alcohol and file and shape the nails as desired. You would want your nail thin at the cuticle and free edge but thicker at the stress point so that you get a natural shape.

12. Next smoothen the nails with a buffer block and then wipe the nails. You can also buff your nails with a sand band for additional smoothness.

13. Apply a coat of finishing gel just like polish and ensure it evenly covers your entire nail. This gel needs to be applied thinner than the builder gel. The finishing gel will self level nicely and you will find a great shine finish.

14. Now cure the gel again for 3 minutes and then remove the tacky layer.

15. As the last step, apply cuticle oil, clean under the free edge and also file up any rough edges and you are done with your nails looking beautiful.
