Start off your relationship with your new pet in the right way. Then you’ll establish a lasting bond that leads to many hours of enjoyment together.

Although it’s very hard to be patient, wait two weeks after you bring your leopard gecko home before you try to handle him. Put yourself in his place. He’s in a new environment with different sights, sounds, smells, and noises. It may take him a few days before he’s willing to eat food again.

All this time that you thought you were forced to ignore him, he’s gradually gotten used to seeing you, hearing you, and smelling you. Your scent is all over the terrarium where he lives. So now after two weeks get ready to say hello.

Leopard Gecko

Put your hand in his enclosure and leave it there for him to investigate. But don’t try to pick him up. Just stay there for a few minutes each day. Let this go on for a few days as he gets used to you. He may even try to climb on your hand. But don’t pick him up the first time he does this.

Next, when you begin picking him up, keep your together time brief. Spend about five minutes holding him carefully. His tail is fragile and needs to be supported as much as his body because it could fall off. And because he might get startled, keep close to the floor in case he jumps.

For extra bonding power, offer him treats when he visits with you. The more pleasant he finds the visits, the easier it will be to handle him in the future.

If you notice that he’s moving his tail slowly and arching his back, he’s telling you to leave him alone. If he screams, he might be trying to scare you away. Chirping and squeaking are common among geckos when they’re scared or unhappy. But if he barks at you, he’s just saying “I’m hungry!”

LED light has been around for some time and many people have made the best use of it as an alternative to traditional means of electrical lighting. However, the therapeutic aspect and potential of this lighting technology has not been exploited, or even known, by many families who are using it to light their homes. However, as time advances the therapeutic potential of these LED lights is gaining momentum among users who appreciate natural means of keeping their bodies healthy.

This post seeks to unfold some of the skin health benefits of these lights. As you keep on reading, you will discover that some of the most amazing skin benefits you have been desiring are right within your reach, in that glowing devise in your house. These benefits can be yours free of charge and all manner of adverse side effects.



LED light helps in fighting wrinkles

Wrinkles are some of the most inconveniencing blemishes that affect the skin of many women. The wavelengths of red LED light have the potential to boost the immunity of your skin against wrinkles by bolstering the ability of the skin to produce more collagen. This is because as the skin ages or gets exposed to serious damage, it loses its natural ability to generate enough collagen.



Blue LED light helps in the treatment of acne

Acne is another denting skin infection that adversely affects the confidence of many women. However, by using these blue lights you can gain an upper hand over its denting effects. The wavelengths of these lights are known to possess abilities that aim at the type of bacteria that is responsible for causing acne. These wavelengths are able to achieve this feat by facilitating the development of oxygen radicals that destroy the bacteria in a safe manner without adverse side effects that may cause your skin to peel or become irritatingly dry.

These lights can fight acne from mild to moderate levels. Additionally, the treatment can be done using at-home acne light therapy devices and it is even safe for expectant and lactating mothers.

LED light can be used to reduce the effects of aging on your skin

Age is a blessing that comes to all people naturally. But as it comes, it erodes some of the beautiful features that you used to enjoy while in the prime of youth. Some of the effects that this technology deals with are the reduction of age spots and smoothing of fine lines on the skin. Your skin is one of those parts of your body  that get affected by aging and LED light can help in reversing some of those effects on your skin so that you can age with a better and younger looking skin.

LED light helps in repairing sun-damaged skin

Excessive exposure to the sun without proper protection is one of the main causes of a damaged skin. However, that should not be a reason to worry anymore because with LED light, you have extra ammunition in your arsenal to fight off solar damages on your skin and restore it to its original and natural luster.

LED light can deal with stretch marks and fade scars

Until now, fade scars and stretch marks are still a skin nuisance to many women across the world. They are a great inconvenience in that they don’t just dent your skin and image but they also hinder you from wearing some of your best clothes such as short sleeved tops. However, with proper application of LED light therapy, you can get over stretch marks and fade scars and enjoy the benefits of a blemish-free skin.

diffuser or a humidifier

Essential oils are the best natural scents that are useful in treating mild to moderate illnesses bodily issues nervous problems, as well as to improve general health and wellness for a person. But due to the fact that every bodily issue requires a certain amount of these natural oils and not all of the health problems can be solved using the same amount of essential oils.

diffuser or a humidifier

In order to fulfill the various needs and to cure various issues through essential oils, diffuser come to provide a wide range of options to give you the exact amount and form of essential oils, Diffusers come as an ultrasonic diffuser, humidifiers and also nebulizers. Among these the nebulizers are much different from the humidifier and the ultrasonic diffusers while diffusers and humidifiers are a much closer version of each other that are used for diffusing EO’s around you. The difference is that in a humidifier the diffusion occurs when the EO’s are used in combination with water and the diffuser makes a coll mist in the room or the place and also increases the humidity or moisture level in the air. While in an ultrasonic diffuser only the oil gets diffused in the oil without increasing the moisture in the air.

Now people often get mixed up with these two versions and they don’t know what they should have.

The best thing is that you should buy an essential oil diffuser and humidifier in combination, in a single diffuser that is easily available. If you have a combination of both, you will be able to use any of the features according to your needs:

When to use a humidifier instead of a diffuser?

  • If you need an increased moisture in the air
  • If you need to cover a large space
  • If you need to treat some external bodily issues like skin allergies
  • If the air around you is very hot and dry

When to use a diffuser instead of a humidifier?

  • If you need a mild scent around your room
  • In case the diffuser has to be placed in a small room
  • If you don’t need to increase the moisture and only need to have a soft fragrance

These are some of the most common conditions when you may switch between both of the functions of an aromatherapy diffuser. And if you have a diffuser that has both features, then you will not have to worry about buying separate ones for different purposes.

It seems over the past few decades, good sleep has become increasingly difficult to come by for many.  I know that it is true for myself personally, but also have many friends and family members that have suffered through the trial and error of getting the nighttime slumber that they so badly want and that their bodies so badly need.  I am sure that I am not the only one who has searched near and far looking for the answer to the question of how to get a better night’s sleep.

better sleeping

I hope I am able to save you some time and effort by compiling this list of 5 tips for a better sleeping environment!  And hopefully with some of that extra time, you will be able to put the list to the test and put your body to rest!

Tip Number 1:  Be like Goldilocks!

You know the story; Goldilocks goes around the Bear’s house trying everything out until she found something that was juuuuust right!  I am pretty sure she even tried out the beds.  One of the most detrimental mentalities to a good night’s sleep is the thought that there is a one size fits all.  I can tell you from experience that that isn’t the case.  How my husband sleeps is definitely different than myself.  When he needs no covers because he is hot, sometimes I am on the opposite side of the bed with a sheet, two blankets and a comforter. So the first tip is to find what is right for you.

Find a temperature that isn’t too hot or too cold and a bed that isn’t too hard or too soft.  Memory foam is a huge asset for all of the above.  It allows proper ventilation so that you do not overheat and yet conforms to your body’s shape to provide just the right amount of insulation.  And better yet, it is almost like magic; it is both firm enough for those that like very little give to their mattress, but also because of the attributes of memory foam, it feels soft and hugs your body in just the right ways to help it rest.

Tip Number 2:  Listen to your body

For many years, I suffered through upper back and neck pain.  Even as a young girl in my 20’s, I thought that it was something I was just going to have to deal with for the rest of my life.  Medical doctors abound could never find anything really wrong, and just tried to throw a bunch of medications at me; some which helped temporarily, but never anything that took the pain away.  It wasn’t until I started working at a chiropractic office that I began seeing that maybe my body was trying to tell me something.  Maybe it wasn’t that something was wrong with me from the inside out, but that I was doing something wrong from the outside in!

The first thing I started with was to buy a different shaped pillow.  I had always loved my traditional, big, fluffy pillow.  That’s what pillows are supposed to be, right?  Soft and airy like a cloud.  But if you think about it, how much support would a cloud be for you?  Truly, you would just fall right through it!  So I changed to a contour pillow.  It took a little getting used to since your head kind of rests in a bit of a hole in the center of the pillow.  But with a little bit of time I realized that my neck didn’t feel as weak as it had before when I would wake up in the mornings.  But it didn’t take the pain away completely.  I then switched to a contoured memory foam pillow and could not believe the difference!  It was like my body was finally telling me ‘yes, this is what we need to rest at night, thank you!’

By listening to my body, I was able to find the best memory foam pillow for my needs.  There are many shapes available on the market today that cater to all of the many needs of customers; and I honestly believe that you just can’t go wrong with the memory foam aspect.

Tip Number 3:  Don’t fear the foam

One of the biggest investments my husband and I have made since we married was buying a memory foam bed.  We have often talked that it has been one of the best monetary investments we made.  Yet, whenever people fell of our bed for the first time, many respond with things like ‘that’s way to hard to sleep on’, ‘isn’t that like sleeping on a rock’.  And I understand it.  When we think of beds, most of us think of the springy, bouncy mattresses we used to jump on as kids.  Kind of like sleeping on a padded trampoline!

People are afraid of change and many are even more afraid that sleeping on memory foam won’t have enough give in it to make it comfortable.  I will admit I was skeptical at first, too.  But I have to tell you, the first night that your body melts into a memory foam bed, you will understand just how well it works at supporting your body.  It allows every part of your body to feel supported in just the right way because it evenly distributes your weight while absorbing any impact made when you move around.  Think of it like the big college football player that is really just a big teddy bear inside!

Tip Number 4:  Sometimes to invest is best

You may have sensed a theme by now that I am partial to the memory foam world!  Believe me when I say that everything I say comes from experience.  I remember my first apartment and trying to go shopping for all of the things I knew I would need as I first ventured out on my own.  My pillow and bed were not on the top of my priority list for items to splurge on.  My bed was a hand-me-down from my grandparents and I found one of the cheapest pillows I could find just so I could have something.  Because a pillow is a pillow, right?  Wrong!

While I’m not saying that more expensive is always better, I feel like it is important enough to mention that dollar store pillows are probably not going to support your head and neck and back in a way that your body needs to really get a restful night’s sleep.  When you think about all of the positives that come from getting enough rest each night, it really does seem like a given that investing a little more money to get what you need is the way to go, doesn’t it?!

Tip Number 5:  Go to bed!

Probably one of the biggest mistakes we make each night is to use our beds as our work station, as our place to wind down, be on our devices, watch tv; you name it.  But really, our beds should be the place we go to be our most at peace.  If you surround yourself with the tools to get a good night’s sleep then also forcing yourself to use that environment for what it is meant for makes sense!

So get out there, find the best memory foam beds and side sleeper pillows for you, find your just right, and get to bed!

Are your legs smooth, stubble-free and sexier? Well, it is time you learned how to epilate your legs. I hope you’ve heard about epilating from a friend, online or it happens you know it but have never really decided on trying it.  Epilators are just like giant tweezers that simultaneously remove hairs from the root leaving our skin looking smooth, shiny and spotless.

Epilator tips

You’ve probably read several epilator reviews and now decided to try epilation n your skin. I’m not going to lie; it is never that easy when you try it at first. It hurts a couple of times before ones usually get used to it, but this should not stop you from using it. Epilators, when used right, makes the skin look sexier and smoother.

Before you start ripping out your hair, read the tips on this article and get the best results. It is my hope in two weeks’ time you will be a lot smoother and beautiful.

Choose a good quality epilator

You obviously need an epilator to epilate. Don’t go out there choosing any epilator that you come across. We highly recommend looking at the features and getting one that serves your purpose. Epilators can be used in various parts of the body like face, bikini area, and underarms but most are designed to work best for the legs. Know where you’re going to use it and choose accordingly.

Gather all the necessary accessories

You need to have all the required accessories before the epilating process. To prevent the ingrown hair, exfoliation must be done. Some of the things you need here include a loofah, a scrub or the exfoliating gloves.

Epilating can be painful and if you’re worried about that, get yourself some numbing cream to help reduce the pain.

Shave a few days before epilating

Epilating shorter hair is much comfortable as compared to epilating long hairs. You can trim you’re a few days before the epilating process. The right hair size to epilate your hair is about 1-2 millimeters.

Exfoliate a day before you epilate

Exfoliation of hairs must be done a day before the epilation process. Earlier we saw the different things you need to exfoliate your hairs. You can use a mitt, loofah or body scrub to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating your hair properly helps prevent the ingrown hairs.

Choose between wet and dry exfoliation

Decide between a wet epilator and a dry one. In most cases, this is a personal preference with most women preferring the wet option for its convenience. It allows you to epilate in the show and is less painful. The drier option also works for others well as the hair does not stick much.

The epilation day

This is the day to endure some pain but get those smooth, lovely legs. If you use a cordless epilator, charge it in advance. There is nothing bad as forgetting to charge your epilator and only realizing a few minutes to the time you’ve set aside for epilation.

Set time for epilation: Epilation is not as faster, and shaving and one has to take it slow. It even takes longer for those doing it for the first time. Make sure you have at least 30 minutes set aside for epilation. The best time to epilate is usually at night as the process leaves you with red bumps. The redness will be gone the next morning, and you can show off your legs without fear.

Prepare for the pain: You can take a painkiller 30 minutes to the epilation process. You can also numb the area by applying ice, but this method has been shown to make the epilation process a lot harder.

Take a shower: Take a bath or hop in the warm shower to free your body of dirt, body lotions and oils. You need to be clean before the epilation process. The warm water also helps weaken the hair strands which make pulling easier.

Start with the hairy area: The inside of the lower legs is the best place to start as it has a lot of hair and will help you get used to the plucking.  Always start with the lowest settings on the epilator.

Final verdict

Epilating your skin should not be difficult if you follow the tips above. You can epilate as often as possible depending on the amount of hair growth and personal preference.

With so many different types of hair treatments on the market today, it’s hard to know which one is right for you. In this article, we’ll take a quick look at 5 of the most popular hair treatment styles on the market today, so you can find out what treatment is right for your hair.

Vitamins and supplements

Vitamins and other oral supplements promise results by making more vitamins, minerals, and important nutrients “bioavailable” within you, by packing large doses of healthful vitamin such as biotin and other vitamin B forms, calcium, potassium, and others. They’re a great way to improve your hair health quickly and naturally, as you can get the same vitamins and nutrients from these treatments as you would by eating a very specific diet tailored for healthy hair – it’s just easier and simpler.

Topical treatments

Topical treatments are generally applied to your hair and scalp and left in for a period of time ranging from 5 minutes to an hour, and can range from over-the-counter remedies that simply feature hair-growth-stimulating vitamins, to prescription offerings like Rogaine that contains minoxidil, or Propecia, which uses Finasteride. Topical treatments that don’t include powerful chemicals can be effective for lower-grade hair loss cases, while heavy-duty, hormone-containing hair growth treatments are generally used in more extreme cases, or in cases where there has been no treatment for a significant amount of time, and the hair loss is quite advanced.

Shampoos and conditioners

Shampoos and conditioners for hair restoration are gentle, lightweight, and usually feature some vitamin-restoring complexes and hair growth formulas to help stimulate your hair follicles. They’re mostly used because normal shampoos and conditioners can be too much for thinning hair, as they’re not designed for it – standard shampoos and conditioners can contain harsh chemicals that can damage or even break fine, thinning hair. Because of this, a good shampoo and conditioner for treating hair loss is recommended, especially if you’re undergoing treatments.

Laser stimulation

Laser stimulation is a much more modern technology, first developed for use in clinical settings in the 1980s. Nowadays, most laser hair growth devices and laser hair restoration devices can be purchased for at home use, allowing the convenience and strength of a clinical laser light device in a comfortable, familiar setting.

Laser stimulation works by beaming red-light-lasers directly at hair follicles, which absorb the radiative heat and photoelectric energy of the 650nm wavelength lasers, stimulating rapid and healthy hair growth.

These hair regrowth devices are typically quite expensive when purchased, but can be used almost an unlimited amount of times. Reviews note that this makes them a great bargain in the long run if you’re looking for a laser hair regrowth device that can be used long-term with no negative side-effects.

These treatment devices are especially popular because of their ability to pair with almost any other restoration product – since they interact directly with the hair follicle, they can pair with just about any other chemical, mechanical, nutritive-based hair treatment, and that makes them very versatile and convenient, as laser hair therapy gets even more efficient when paired with other restoration products.

Massage stimulation

Massage stimulation typically is found in handheld electronic devices, and occasionally paired with laser hair stimulation. It works by using circular, stimulating motions to massage your scalp and hair follicles, which helps increase blood flow to your hair follicles and give you healthier, stronger hair.

While massage stimulation is effective, we would caution you on using it if your hair has a tendency toward breakage – some catching and snapping is basically inevitable given the construction of these devices, and if your hair is too weak to handle that tension, these devices will not work out well for you.

The great thing about hair restoration treatments is that most of them can be used safely with each other, as they all stimulate different aspects of your hair and hair follicles. Laser light stimulates follicles directly, nutrition helps feed your hair, topical treatments allow you to bring nutrition and chemical treatments directly into your hair follicles from outside, and shampoos and conditioners feed your hair while keeping it clean to allow your other treatments clean, easy access to the hair follicle.

Because of this, we highly recommend checking out some products in all of these categories, and creating a custom hair growth restoration plan that’s right for you. Naturally, we do recommend consulting a hair growth physician before beginning any intensive regimen to make sure it’s right for you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t conduct your own research to find products you’ll like.

There are not many new aquarium keepers that are familiar with the best internal protein skimmers. They are not really know the purpose of the protein skimmer. It can be quite hard and frustrating to try to make your tank as efficient as possible, but because you are a beginner, you don’t really have the knowledge to know that to choose for your tank. This is why these information about the skimmers is so important.

internal protein skimmers

What is a protein skimmer?

If you didn’t know that we are talking about aquariums, you might just think that a protein skimmer is for humans. There are still many aquarium owners that still don’t know what the skimmer is, and therefor they don’t really own one.

A protein skimmer for aquarium is removing the protein and other organic waste in the water that is caused by the fish and plants. Some of these organic waste and protein can become really dangerous to the fish, if you don’t clean the tank regularly. With the skimmer, you will not need to worry about these organic waste.

The different types of protein skimmers

protein skimmerNow that you know that your aquarium might need one of these protein skimmers, you might want to buy one for the tank. However, there are three different types of skimmers that you can purchase. Making it hard to make the right choice. The three different types are:

  • Counter Current;
  • Venturi;
  • Turbo

It is important that you make sure that you know as much about these three different types of skimmers, in order to be able to make the right choice. You also should know that some of these skimmers needs to have a certain type of pump in order to work correctly.

The maintenance of a protein skimmer

Something that people also want to know about the protein skimmer, is the maintenance of this skimmer. They don’t want to buy something that needs to be maintained a lot.

This is also why you should know more about the different types of skimmers. Different skimmers have different maintenance needs. Some don’t require much maintenance, while other needs to have frequent maintenance. You should know your needs and know about the different protein skimmer so that you can make the right choice.

The cost of the protein skimmers

You can always see what the different protein skimmers cost. The more expensive the skimmer, the more effective the skimmer will be and the less maintenance you will need to do.

However, not everyone has the money to spend on expensive protein skimmers. Luckily there are some of the skimmers that are more affordable, but that is still a great choice.

Not all the fish tanks have one of the best internal protein skimmers for removing protein in the tank. And, this is okay, because this is one thing that isn’t really important to have. But, if you have one, you will have fewer worries about the tank having too much protein and other organic waste in the water. This ensures for a healthier, cleaner fish tank for longer.

There are many tools on the market geared towards helping women look and feel their best. One of the most popular beauty tools is the flat iron. There are many flat irons on the market, all show casing different sizes, materials and features. It can be overwhelming to find the best one for you, but it doesn’t have to be.

The price of flat irons can catch some people off guard. You may be tempted to buy the cheapest one you see, and assume you’ll be able to make it work for you. However, that is not a good idea. If you do that, chances are you are going to be unhappy with your purchase. You will likely have dried frizzy hair from the experience as well.

flat iron for your hair

All of the features on a flat iron are geared towards women with different hair types. So the first thing you need to do is figure out what hair type you have. Hair types typically fall into three categories. Thick/coarse/curly hair, normal/medium/wavy hair and thin/fine hair. As you can guess, women with thin/fine hair are likely going to need different care then women with thick/coarse/curly hair. There is no one size fits all when it comes to flat irons. Here we are going to talk about how to choose the best flat iron for natural hair.

If you have thick/coarse/curly hair you are going to require a higher temperature setting then other hair types, typically between 380°F and 410°F. Women with normal/medium/wavy hair need an ideal heat setting of 360°F to 380°F to achieve straight hair and women with thin/fine hair need something lower than 360°F.

Using a temperature too high for your hair type may seem like a good idea to achieve straighter hair faster. In reality, using a flat iron that is too hot is likely to result in dried out frizzy hair. Using a temperature that is too low is going to mean that you have to pass the flat iron over your hair repeatedly, which is increasing the risk of damage to your hair and creating more frizz. The ideal method to straightening your hair is to pass over each section of hair with the flat iron only once, finding a flat iron with an adjustable heat setting is the ideal way to find the perfect heat setting for your hair.

There are three main types of plates that come on flat irons. Ceramic plates are the most economical option. While they do take longer to heat up, they are okay to use on all hair types. It is important to make sure you are getting a ceramic plate, however, and not a ceramic coated plate. Ceramic plated flat irons get hot quickly but can also have hot spots because of the cheaper metal underneath.

Tourmaline ceramic flat iron are also ideal for all hair types. Tourmaline is a ground up semi-precious metal that is used to cover the plates of flat iron. This makes the plate very smooth and less likely to cause damage. Tourmaline coated plates are a lot more expensive, however, they are also more durable and won’t chip or suffer heat loss. These plates retain their heat well, which gives you consistency when straightening your hair.

Tourmaline ceramic flat iron

Titanium plates are ideal for women with thick/coarse/curly hair as well as normal/medium/wavy hair. Titanium plates get hot quickly and stay hot, this makes them less ideal for women with thin/fine hair as their hair is more susceptible to heat damage. Titanium is usually more expensive but it is also durable and causes less heat damage and frizz.

The final thing to consider is the plate size. Choosing the ideal plate size isn’t about the type of hair you have, but rather the length of your hair. If your hair is above your shoulders, you are going to want to find a flat iron that is half to one inch wide. If your hair is longer, below your shoulders, you are going to want a flat iron that is one and a half to two inches wide. Also be aware of the weight of your iron, if you have long or thick hair, moving the flat iron over your hair over and over again can be exhausting.

Before you decide on your final purchase, remember there are many things to take into consideration to help you choose the best flat iron for your hair natural hair. By investing in the flat iron best suited to your hair type and length, you are guaranteeing that you will be able to achieve perfectly straight hair whenever you want, for years to come.

For anyone researching how rebounding benefits the body and overall health, the answer may be closer to their heart than they think. Well obviously, you say, jumping up and down on a best rebounder is sure to get your heart pumping vigorously, and that’s good for the heart. Correct? Well yes and no, because that’s not all it does. A less well known fact about rebounding is that it also helps stimulate the immune system of the body through the lymphatic system – or the garbage collection and disposal system – in a way that very few other forms of exercise do.

According to NASA, the benefits from rebounding make it one of the most effective and efficient types of exercises “ever devised by man” – and that’s no small feat. Ever wonder why kids love jumping on the bed? That’s because it’s the closest thing to zero gravity when you hit that high point of every jump; in fact, it’s so addictive that nearly every parent knows that most children will NOT stop jumping until they’re threatened with dire consequences, such as suspension of access to all multimedia devices! This brings us to a very important aspect of rebounding benefits – stick-to-activity. Let’s go down that road a bit…


Most exercise routines require a measure of discipline to keep going at it day after day after day. This is something that every veteran weight loss aspirant knows only too well. Like fad diets and quick-fix solutions to weight problems, exercise routines are only as good as the amount of time that you engage in them for. Major problem here – most people are either too busy or too distracted by their daily life to pay much attention to the prerequisites of healthful living; given a choice between plunking themselves in front of a TV and getting up and using that a cruncher or elliptical exercise machine, or simply going for a walk, jog or run, the majority of those who really need to get in shape tend toward the more passive option. With rebounding, a large part of that internal inertia is eliminated: it’s fun so you don’t have to push yourself too hard to get on a trampoline and start jumping, but more than that, it keeps you motivated for a prolonged period of time – something that very few other exercise methods can do – Jane Fonda’s workouts included!

Now that the basic rebounding benefits have been covered, let’s mosey on to the heavier side of goodness that repeated rebounding sessions can afford. The heart being one of the most important muscles in the body gets the maximum benefit out of jumping up and down for joy. A simple routine of 2-minute bounces about 4-5 times a day can get the blood rushing to parts of the body you didn’t even know you had! An immediate feeling of better energy levels and feeling more active during the day will convince the most scalding skeptic that this is one of the best ways to exercise the heart. The positive effects of doing this even for a few weeks will be with you for months and years to come. Imagine what making this a part of your lifestyle can do for you!

Rebounder Benefits

Let’s not stop there -we’re on a roll now. The next big thing to be benefitted by rebounding exercises is the lymphatic system; perhaps not as glamorous as the heart and the circulatory system but very important nonetheless. The lymphatic system is the trash collection unit of the body. All those toxins produced perpetually by a healthy human body have to go somewhere; besides that, since the lymphatic system is not directly connected to the heart, it needs to be stimulated in another way – either by vigorous exercise or with massage therapy. This is where rebounding benefits come in: since the valves controlling the flow of lymph fluid are all unidirectional, jumping up and down ensures that they all open and close at the same time; research shows that this can enhance lymph flow by up to 15 times! The benefits of that on the immune system can hardly be exaggerated. In fact, the source of nearly everything from allergies to obesity can be found in an improperly functioning lymphatic system. That being said, it’s understandable why rebounding is taking on the frenzy of a fad. However, the long lasting benefits of rebounding go much further than any fad can possibly go.

The list of rebounding benefits goes on and on, but these major effects on the body are both undeniable as well as highly desirable. So what are you waiting for? Jump.

How to clean a memory foam mattress

Cleaning your mattress is very important when it comes to increasing its lifetime and making your bed a more comfortable place to sleep. Your bed is where you spend 1/3 of your days, (if you’re sleeping 8 hours a night), so why wouldn’t you want it to be well kept? A mattress cover or bed sheet does not do the best job in keeping a mattress tidy, as certain odors, sweat and other fluids can seep through them. Here are our suggestions for regular cleanings, removing stains, and removing odors from your mattress…

How to Vacuum

The simplest and most basic way to keep your mattress clean is by vacuuming it. Use a handheld or regular vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment for the best cleaning results. Because it is not unusual for dirt, hair and other particles to build up on your mattress, make sure you vacuum both sides thoroughly.

How to Remove Stains

When trying to remove stains from your memory foam mattress, it is important to use the spot cleaning method. Because memory foam mattresses are less likely to harbor bacteria and other allergens than regular innerspring mattresses, cleaning the entire mattress is not entirely necessary. If you find some stains that you would like to take care of, here is what to do:

First method: Wet a small towel with warm water and dampen the dirty area of your mattress. Then use a solution of water and dish soap to start removing the stain, Use a towel or a spray bottle with the solution, and apply it to the mark on the bed. Then rub the solution in a circular motion in order to lift the stain. Rinse your towel out and place it over the spot to remove any soapy residue.

Second method: If soap does not do the trick for you, try using vinegar and baking soda. Put white vinegar in a spray bottle and apply it to the appropriate areas. Let the white vinegar soak for approximately five minutes. Then add a thin layer of baking soda to the stained area, let it fizz up, remove any leftover moisture with a towel, and vacuum away the rest of the residue.

How to Remove Odor

Scents such as urine, vomit and cigarette smoke have the ability to linger in a memory foam mattress. Making sure that your bed has a pleasant, inviting aroma is key to getting a better night’s rest. Here are the ways to get rid of any uninviting scents:

First method: Sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda over one side of the mattress and let that sink in overnight. The next day, vacuum the baking soda side, flip the mattress, and repeat on the opposite side of the mattress. This process should take 2 days to fully lift any odors.

Second method: A more natural approach to lifting the scents from your mattress is by creating a solution of half water and half distilled white vinegar. Use a spray bottle and apply the solution to both sides of the mattress. Let it air dry or use a blow dryer, without burning the mattress, in order to remove any dampness. The smell of vinegar will fade in a few days, and will take away any bad odors.
