recreation and outdoor activities are good for children

Studies show that the number one reason for obesity in children is not junk food, ice creams, pizzas and soda pops. It’s actually the goggle box – TV. Children tend to plop themselves on the sofa and munch away happily when they are in front of the TV sets. In other words, once the set is off, their natural buoyancy will lead the children to do stuff and to move their body.

Recreation and outdoor activities are a must if you feel that your child needs to lose undesirable fat. It is better to begin these activities as early as possible. As a parent, it is your responsibility to encourage your child to be actively involved in outdoor activities which will improve their developmental skills.

innovation on health matters

Complementary medical care has gained increasing popularity in recent years. More and more people are seeking natural alternatives to healing. It’s no surprise, then, that families are also looking more often for natural therapies to treat minor concerns and to maintain a body balance.

Like I often say, I’m not against (and will never be) popping medications over the counter or taking dozes of antibiotics prescribed by medical doctors. But I am careful in knowing what’s been prescribed and be an informed patient. It is necessary.

Medical care is constantly emerging with new discoveries and innovative treatment methods everyday. The most recent for me was C’elle Stem Cell Research Innovation revealing how women’s menstrual fluid may be used for stem cell technology to treat illnesses including diabetes, parkinson disease and alzheimer. The C’elle Client Testimonial has been helpful to provide confidence and relevant information to this revolutionary service. Read to find out more.

protect your children from the sun

Do you know that your children need the highest protection in the sun! School holidays, playing outdoors… childhood is a time when we’re most exposed to the sun. As the child’s immature skin is more vulnerable than an adult’s, it will carry the effects of every sunburn, for life. Here’s some useful advice from Clarins:

1) Stay under the sun at the Right Time
Between 11am and 4pm during peak sunshine hours, try to stay in the shade. Use the time to do something fun – take a siesta, do some drawing, visit a museum, walk in the woods, bake a cake… the possibilities are endless!

2) Regular Application.
Always apply and reapply your sun protection every two hours, and more frequently in strong sun. And not just on the beach… apply first thing in the morning, as the sun can find you wherever you are!

3) Be well prepared.
Take it everywhere you go to carry your water, snacks, sunscreen, After Sun Gel, t-shirts, hats and a light jacket for when the sun goes down.

4) Use the right products.
Sun Care Cream Ultra Protection For Children SPF 30 is ideal throughout the summer. Its 100% mineral sunscreens provide perfect tolerance and the formula is resistant to water and salt making it ideal for water sports.

5) Don’t neglect After Sun Protection
After their evening shower, children’s skin needs to be nourished and moisturized. Apply After Sun Moisturizer for isntant colling and comfort. It’s ideal for the entire family.
