10 Ways to Stay Healthy this Fall
Fall is a time of transition from warm sunny weather to rain, wind and snow. It's a time of pumpkin spice, Thanksgiving and little monsters running around the neighbourhood.
Unfortunately, it's also a time when most people struggle to stay healthy. Colds and flus spread more easily when we're indoors.
As the days get shorter and the nights longer, Seasonal Affective Disorder is also a problem for a lot of people.
WHY WE USE SERUMS
Let’s tackle this important topic as it allows to further expand our understanding and evaluate current selfcare practices when it comes to skin health. Why do we use serums? Simply put, they nourish the skin on deeper levels to prevent skin starvation which is the precursor to premature aging. Without the right nourishment, we cannot expect the skin to thrive especially when the skin is constantly under attack by the outer world.
Top 3 Reasons Serums are so Important to Skincare: Size + Delivery | Coexist | Concentration
Serums hold the key to unlock the door to youth in the skin. There are three useful components as to what makes a serum so valuable to skin health. First and foremost, serums create change in the skin because they contain the smallest molecular structure of ingredients. These ingredients can efficiently advance into the skin with the use of a delivery system to support healthy tissues and increase dermal thickening. Cleansing the face is a temporary event. Applying an oil or moisturizer creates more of an occlusive to lock in hydration. Therefore, serums offer the most impact purely because they house the nutritional ingredients and delivery systems.
Secondly, serums work so well because the combination of ingredients can coexist without compromise. In that gorgeous serum bottle you can include many effective ingredients to help support repair without diluting or causing other ingredients to be ineffective. For example, in our vitamin A serums, ingredients like niacinamide, chlorella, and 1,3 beta glucan work cohesively to stimulate collagen production and keep the skin on track. We add a hydration source to activate the delivery system and further advance these ingredients into the skin. They support each other as they have the same goal in mind. In serums, we can isolate ingredients in one group that will heal and not harm the skin. Adding savvy ingredients in moisturizers cannot always advance into the skin as effectively, if at all.
Lastly, serums have a high concentration of nutrients. It wouldn’t be productive to include multiple nutritive ingredients into a cleanser because as mentioned, it’s a short-term event for the skin. We have the ability to combine many different types of ingredients that can support the skin from different aspects. In analogy, a serum is like a salad. A healthy salad contains different types of offerings to target nutrition. Each ingredient in a salad has a unique nutritional benefit and the more the merrier! The more vegetables you include into your salad, the more variety of nutrients you can offer the body. This concept is the same for serums. The more ingredients that can advance into the skin to heal and repair from different perspectives, the better the outcome will be.

"My Muscles are ALWAYS Sore and Tight!"
This is one of the most common things I hear day to day working in Massage. Muscular aches and pains are something every person from desk workers to warehouse labourers just cannot escape.
So what makes muscles "tight"? Since tightness, pain and aching are all subjective sensations, there isn't one correct answer. Anatomically, a tight muscle could come from a muscular spasm, causing a shortening of the contractile muscular tissue, or the increase of fascial adhesions. Fascia is normally occurring connective tissue that covers every muscle, organ, blood vessel and nerve in the body. Adhesions can build up in the tissue by repetitive stress, injury, trauma, increased activity or being inactive for long periods of time. Physically feeling those sensations does not necessarily mean you have an anatomical shortening of the muscle, but it could be caused by any of the following factors:
