Things you aren’t aware of about nail salons

Who in this era of modernization isn’t leaving no stones unturned to achieve the looks and appearances that would help them acquire a position in society and people’s minds as well as would raise their standards? Everyone has scheduled periodic visits to salons, malls, stylists, and what not in their planner. Not to forget, these grooming and beauty centers are actually rapidly growing industries whose per year profits are way beyond our imagination and all credit goes to our competitive and insecure self which makes us want to be the best. It forces us to try hands on anything that can help us look better.Afterall, in today’s world, appearance does matter!

This sometimes leads us in making wrong choices and going for things which are not at all required, one such thing is pampering your nails and heading to nail salons frequently. You might question me on this and relentlessly not agree as this soothing and relaxing exercise makes nails amazing (after those manicure and pedicure sessions) but believe me, if you would know the truth ,you might not think of visiting again or at least think twice before planning a visit. My lovelies, it is very easy to give yourself that good manicure and pedicure at home and not go to those salons which hardly care about your health or well being.

So, to start with….

  1. As already mentioned above, these industries have great profits and their businesses are increasing rapidly, so these little luxury providers try their best to increase customers and want people coming for more.

When it means beyond excellent service, cleanliness and technique to some and to some, it means cutting corners, deceiving and fooling people to keep costs down and business booming.

  1. This is not to scare you; but to present before youthe truth- The pampering session is not safe, and dangerous enough to cost you your life. A large number of women go for manicures and pedicures and come out safe, without any disease or any issue but still you can never be hundred percent sure if same case stays with you. This nail cutting and treatment ceremony can even let the skin infection causing bacteria, fungus, viruses be the guests which in turn would bug you your whole life, for whatever time you have it (life). Nail salons which undertake poor sanitization practices are not cleaned properly and have inadequately trained nail technicians which proves to be a good breeding ground for bacteria and fungus and a really dangerous place for you to have your luxurious treat!

  1. No salon is completely safe as there is always a risk of infection. You can never know what customers were served right before you and if they suffered from any infection that probably could spread andyouwould never know if the instruments, solutions and other stuff used in the process were properly sterilized as per the protocols or not. It is nearly impossible to actually know this, so a definite risk about your health persists.

  1. As per the saying, it is not good to turn customers away or to make them unhappy, so going by it, customers are not served or refused to be served in any business, this means even a sick person, who might pose a threat to your health mightbe being worked on next to you instead of being asked to seek professional medical help. So the greatest danger of salons stays “The Mission Infection Transmission” *wink*

9

  1. People have come a long way in this business so all tricks to deceive and fool people are being implemented quite like a pro. They swap bottles, put cheap local lotions and solutions in bottles labeled with some international or famous brand for that product. They dilute nail polish bottles, which not only compromises with the quality of the product but also cannot prevent germs from spreading. To add to the misery, not all disinfectants are hundred percent effective and some products used by these salons are not even recommended for use as they aren’t safe. Not all the tools are sterilized and even some can’t be. Last but not the least; cuts and scratches that might appear during the process are actually a way for germs to enter your body; blood might not appear always, but a cut is a cut and is dangerous. The people giving you manicure or pedicure even suggest cutting your cuticle which should be completely avoided and should be refused the very second it is asked!

Read more: The danger of cutting your cuticles

Some tips to follow if you plan to have a visit to nail salon near you:

  1. Look for cleanliness: What pleases your eye should be pleasing to your body and health as well. Check if workstations, instruments and the environment is clean. Even make sure to check if salon is certified or not.
  1. Sterilization and sanitization:Make sure that the people undertake proper practices to sterilize stuff and their hands are sanitized before they start working on you. Also look if pouches and bottles of solutions are opened right before your eyes or not.
  1. Have your own kit: It is always advised to bring your own kit, your own polish, the reasons are all mentioned above. It is all about your safety and nothing else.
  1. Cuticle cutting: It is a big NO. I repeat, never ever yield to this. You have to deny and I mean it.
  1. Let people know: Do your part. Let the workers know if you have had any cuts so that they know how to deal with you and provide you with extra care and attention.
  1. In the end, it is all your choice. So choose wisely and think. It is required, isn’t it?

So, you now are well informed about the dangers these nail salons pose and salon secrets they have been hiding for long. I hope it might at least force you to rethink before going to any nail salon for any treatment. Even now, if you feel you do need to go to these centers for beautification and grooming purpose, make sure to follow the above mentioned tips so that at least your visit doesn’t stay dangerous for you.These tips would keep you away from any trouble which might keep on bugging you for life.

How to get rid of stuffy nose

 A congested or stuffy nose is caused by inflamed blood vessels in the membranes lining the inside of your nostril, usually due to the flu, cold or allergies. The excess mucus in your nose can make it difficult to breathe. While this can be life-threatening to newborns, it’s simply annoying and intolerable for anyone. Here are some tips to get your nose unclogged so you can feel and breathe better.

 

USE A HUMIDIFIER:

Breathing in moist air can help soothe irritated tissue and swollen blood vessels in your nose and sinuses. A humidifier machine can increase the humidity in your room easily. The machine converts water to moisture that slowly fills the air. Humidifiers also thin the mucus in your sinuses, which can help empty the fluids in your nose and return your breathing to normal. When you breathe in the humid air, you will help relieve the inflammation and irritation that cause your congestion.

TAKE A SHOWER:

Taking a steamy shower can make you feel relax. Like the humidifier, the steam from a shower helps to thin out the mucus in your nose and sinuses and reduce inflammation. As a result, your breathing should return to normal, at least for a short period.

You can get the same effect by breathing in steam from hot water in the sink. Turn on the hot water. Once the temperature is right, place a towel over your head and the sink. Allow the steam to build, and take in deep breaths. Be careful not to burn your face on the hot water steam.

STAY HYDRATED:

Keep the fluids flowing when your nose is stuffed up? Almost all liquids- water, sports drinks, tea, soup, even juice- can help keep you hydrated when you are sick. They help thin the mucus in your nasal passages, which decreases the pressure in your sinuses and pushes the fluids out of your nose. Less pressure means less inflammation and irritation. If your stuffy nose is accompanied by a sore throat, warm tea and soup will help ease the pain.

USE A SALINE SPRAY:

                                Source: http://bit.ly/1NHdCpw

Take one step further with saline. Use a nasal saline spray to increase the moisture in your nasal passages. The spray helps thin the mucus in your nasal passages, which decreases the inflammation of your blood vessels and helps empty fluids. Saline sprays are available over the counter.

Some saline sprays also include decongestant medication. Take your pharmacist advice to before using the saline sprays with decongestants. They may actually make your congestion worse if used more than three days. Plus, if you are taking other medications, the decongestants may cause side effects.

 

USE A WARM COMPRESS:

The same way from a shower helps open your nasal passages from the inside, a warm compress then help to open them from the outside. Soak a towel in warm water squeeze the water out of the towel, then fold it and place it over your face especially at your nose and forehead. The heat will provide comfort from any pain, and the warmth may help relieve some of the inflammations in the nasal passages. Repeat it till you don’t feel relax.

Blowing your nose while it’s stuffy when there’s nothing to expel will only make the congestion worse. Walk away from the tissues, and resolve to use them only when you have a runny nose.

Most chest or vapor rubs contain menthol, eucalyptus,and camphor which some people believe; helps ease the congestion when the vapors are inhaled. Popular rubs that can be used for this purpose include Vicks, Tiger Balm, and Icy Hot. Although, the ingredients in these remedies may effectively relieve the sensation of a stuffy nose in many people, there is insufficient evidence to suggest that they effectively treat cold symptoms. Some application to use this:

  • Rub it on your throat or chest while you are going to sleep. Put it close enough to your nose so that you can breathe it.Don’t put it so close that it irritates you.
  • Put some vapor rub on tissue, and then hold the tissue to your nose so that you inhale it deeply.
  • If you don’t have a vapor rub with you then put some peppermint oil beneath your nose. It will give you the same effect.

REST IN AN UPRIGHT POSITION:

If you feel your congestion get worse when you lie down then try to elevate your head a little bit. Put an extra pillow beneath your head it will help you more.

EAT SPICY FOOD:

If your sinuses are congested; eat slightly spicier dish which you enjoy. Drink plenty of water as you eat, then you would find your nose running by the end of the meal. Blow out as much as you can.

If these tips don’t give you relief then you must go proceed to doctor as soon as possible. If you wish to ask something, leave your comments in the box below.

  1. FOUNDATION:

SKIP POWDER FOUNDATION: If your skin is dry or flaking, skip the powder foundation. Powder foundation will not only dry your skin, but it let your skin look dull or tired. Powder settles into lines or wrinkles.

DRUGSTORE FOUNDATION: While everyone like smooth and flawless skin, not everyone is blessed with that. So, if your goal is to achieve that look then you can go for the drugstore foundation.

  1. MAKEUP REMOVER FOR SENSITIVE AND ACNE PRONE SKIN:

   Acne prone skin needs extra care so always take care your skin if you have high pigmentation. Makeup removers are the products designed to break up and remove the pigments of your makeup.

It is just that the ones who face this problem in their teens do not notice it and when they are in their 19s or 20s, receding hairline can be easily seen.

But first of all, learn about the signs so that when you notice any of these, you immediately go for the cure.

SIGNS OF RECEDING HAIRLINE

CAUSES OF RECEDING HAIRLINE

When we have come to know about the problem, it is very important to know about its causes as well, so that the solution can be taken in the same accordance. Hence, let us acknowledge as to what are the primary causes of receding hairline one by one. Check out the list here:

1. Exuberant and Continuous Production of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT)

If we talk about the factors that are creditworthy for receding hairline, then hormones and genes will hold the topmost place. A male sex hormone known as Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), is considered to be one of the major factor causing receding hairline. If found more than the required quantity in the body, this hormone turns out to be a disaster in the growth of hair and hence starts producing undesirable side effects in the form of excessive hair loss. Logically as per the medical science, this hormone should be abridged after puberty but if its level keeps on increasing then it fortifies different places in the body thereby even causing hair follicles. In such a condition DHT adhere to these follicles and then clogs up the blood circulation. This further does not allow hair follicles to receive adequate nutrition and so they start weakening, shrinking and falling.

Receded-Hairline

Now, if the problem of receding hairline is not taken care of, it will turn out to cause baldness gradually over the whole scalp and later on leading to permanent loss of hair. Mark a point that this problem only happens when DHT production in the body is more than required else DHT leaves no harmful effect if the production happens as per the requirement.

 

2. Genes – Inherited Elements

The hormonal factors are also equally liable for the problem of receding hairline along with that of genes factor. As per the medical science, the ones who face receding hairline trouble are detected to have a gene known as AR (Androgen Receptor) within them. It is said that as firmer as this AR is, the sooner you will face this problem. Hence, this fact also makes it clear as to why receding hairline is usual in teenagers and the ones till the age of fifteen. In the early research it was found that this gene known as AR could only be transferred from mom to son but as per the new research, it has been made clear that this gene can even be transferred from father to son. So, both the parents can be responsible for this problem.

In addition, apart from AR, there are few other genes as well which have been discovered as the reason for initiating baldness in males in different ways but AR is the primary one.

 

3. Age Factor

Moving further, another major factor behind the trouble of receding hairline is ‘Age Factor’. Even the researches have justified this point. As per the analysis and research done by National Institute of Health (US), it has been found that the problem of receding hairline is the highest in old aged people and there are nearly 65% of men who undergo baldness or sort of baldness. Among these 65% of men, there are about 25% of such men who are the sufferers from an early age of thirties. This shocked you, didn’t it?

4. Ecological Elements – Stress

It is not only DHT that is majorly responsible for baldness and receding hairline, but also there are various ecological elements that equally hold the credit of this problem. You must be thinking how? To justify this, it can be said that persons who undergo emotional and mental stress everyday are the supreme sufferers of receding hairline. They experience hair loss at a huge extent. So, stay stress free always.

                                     men

 

5. Drugs & Medications

You will be surprised to know that there are some such medications that result to receding hairline. This goes for both; men and women. To add on, there are even some drugs that can quicken the issue of hair loss thereby resulting in the problem of receding hairline. Such medications and drugs are: the ones used for handling heart diseases, cholesterol, gouts, blood pressure etc. Even the drugs which have Vitamin A in high quantity and are anti-depressants are also risky for the hair growth. A therapy known as Chemotherapy, which is given to cancer patients also accelerates the loss of hair at the fastest speed.

 

6. Bad Eating Habits

Last but not the least, our eating habits play a major role in our body. It can impact our body both the ways: positively and negatively. Same is the case when we discuss about the cause of receding hairline in men. If the body gets healthy food which is rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrition, these will definitely accelerate the receding of your hairline. On the other hand, if you are a food lover and eat more of refined food in your daily diet like grains and sugar, then the problem of receding hair will increase speedily. Ascertain that you consume lot of protein eatables in your regular dietary chart because protein is considered as the most important element for hair growth. To add on, smoking is considered injurious to the growth of hair as well apart from the overall health. This is a sure fact proved by some researchers.

 

Additional Causes of Receded Hairline

Apart from all the above, there are many other specifies and diseases that also hold the credit of causing receding hairline in male. They are as follows: Trichotillomania, burns, thyroid issues, cancer in Adrenal Gland, Seborrheic Dermatits (causing both: dry scalp & excess oily scalp) and last but not the least, diabetic patients undergoing weakened immunity. Moreover, even scalp infections like acne (majorly cystic acne in relation DHT), fungal, eczema can also result to receding hairline. Excluding fungal contagion, rests of the causes are rare to be found. All these are also the reasons of normal hair loss as well.
