Travel with contact lens

Airline cabins tend to have drier air quality and lower oxygen availability. If you’re a contact lens user, using lubricating eye drops in your eyes before boarding may help to relieve some eye dryness during flight. It is most ideal to remove your contact lens before flight; your eyes are most comfortable wearing glasses when traveling by plane.

Are you at risk for AMD ?

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a chronic irreversible medical condition that results in loss of central vision because of damage to the macula, or central part of the retina. It occurs with increasing age and most common for people over 60 years of age. One may see shadows in vision, have distorted vision, or decreasing visual acuity, as well as the inability to discern colours or make out colour contrast when diagnosed with AMD. Studies found that Lutein and Zeaxanthin either help prevent AMD or may slow progression of the disease by block blue light from reaching the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to AMD.

How to get rid of bad breath?

Rinsing with salt water is a great way to get rid of bad breath. Salt is the most effective and easy way to fight bacteria and even stop decaying your teeth. It is recommended to rinse your mouth with salt in lukewarm water once a day. Keeping teeth clean by practicing good dental hygiene and maintaining a healthy digestive system are also crucial. 

Why should you use dental floss?

To have good oral health, it is not enough to brush your teeth twice a day, you need to floss at least once a day too. By flossing daily, you can remove plaque from the areas between your teeth where the toothbrush cannot reach. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into tartar. In addition, people who are wearing braces or having big interdental gaps can use a special interdental toothbrush for more effective cleansing effect.

hair care tips

Moisturize dry scalp.

We put in a lot of efforts to make sure that our skin is well-moisturized and tend to forget the layer of skins underneath the hair. If we have dry skin, most likely will have a dry scalp too. Dry skin is the most common cause of itchy and flaking scalp. Scalp oil moisturizes scalp better than the cream or lotion as it stays longer on the scalp. Jojoba oil is most commonly used. Others include almond, flax seed, or olive oil. Apply the scalp oil on wet hair, it prevents oil getting into hair. Choose shampoo with citrus oil, tea tree oil or chamomile oil as they rinse out oil treatment effectively.

Hair styling without the damage.

Exposure to heat through blow-drying or perming can affect the quality of hair. It may result in split ends which are non-reversible. Please ensure that sufficient nourishment is supplied before and after the heat-styling. You can always consult your hair stylist for styling which causes lesser harm, and products with natural ingredients.

Miso- a super healthy soup!

Miso soup helps your body to get rid of harmful radioactive waste. A compound known as Dipicolinic acid attaches to heavy metals and radioactive strontium and carries them out of the body. During the 1945 atomic bombing of Nagasaki in Japan, clinic workers ate miso soup regularly, which may have helped them to avoid severe symptoms of radiation.  Cooking tips: Never boil miso as boiling process will destroy its nutrients. Add miso paste to your soup after it has been removed from direct heat.

Essential Good Cholesterol.

Cholesterol is necessary for the production of hormones, bile salts and vitamins in our body. High levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) may cause plaque formation on artery walls, while good cholesterol (HDL) facilitates removal of excess cholesterol thus decreasing the risk of heart diseases. Maintain a good cholesterol balance with soluble fiber intake (to lower bad LDL), and Omega-3 fatty acids (to raise good HDL). Cold water fish (salmon, sardine and mackerel) are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Alternatively, try flax seeds and soy beans.
