Laser Hair Removal Treatment for Unwanted Hair

*Collaborative post.

Having unwanted hair on your face as a female can be frustrating. I know how frustrating it is because I am quite hairy and I have had my fair share of dealing with unwanted hair on parts of my face. I noticed the increase in the facial hair some years ago and I had to get rid of them. Thankfully there are now many ways of getting rid of unwanted hair. From using tweezers, waxing to shaving cream. However, the best way to get rid of unwanted hair on your face or body is by having a laser hair removal procedure done. I have had many laser hair removal sessions done and I can testify to how effective and safe the procedure is.

 

Laser Hair Removal Treatment

For those who are not aware of this procedure, laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that makes use of a powerful laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) to remove unwanted hair on parts of your body. The procedure usually lasts a couple of minutes and it is usually pain free, so you can get back to your business of the day as soon as the session is over. Many people usually need only about 6 sessions spaced about 4- 6 weeks apart to get rid of the unwanted hair. I had 6 sessions of laser hair removal treatment on my chin many years ago and it worked great for me.

How Laser Hair Removal Treatment Works for Unwanted Hair

Laser hair removal treatment removes hair by destroying hair follicles in the skin, which disrupts hair growth. I always had on protective googles are to protect my eyes during the procedure, and so did everyone else. While the treatment is going on, you can usually smell the burning hair as the machine stings the area of the body being treated. It feels like a sting every time the machine touches the affected area and the sting only lasts a few seconds, so it is quite bearable for even those with low pain threshold like myself.

 

Side Effects of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

From my experience, I had no side effects but I know some people suffer from a bit of redness on the treated area. I had an after cream I applied on my chin after every procedure and I stayed out of the sun. That helped my skin heal naturally.

 

Laser hair removal treatment is an effective and safe cosmetic procedure for getting rid of unwanted hair. I prefer the laser method to others and I recommend it to anyone dealing with unwanted hair.

How to silence the mind chatter when you meditate

If you are new to meditation,  you may be struggling with silencing the mind chatter. I struggled with that on and off for a while when I first started to meditate regularly. Now I don’t have that problem anymore. I meditate twice a day, 20 minutes in the morning and evening, and I can now do so effortlessly with no mind chatter. Now that I mediate on a daily basis, I feel a lot better all over and I can’t imagine not meditating now that I am reaping the full benefits of it.

Meditating simply means being still. It is taking your mind off everything, sitting comfortably and focusing on your breath while breathing in and out deeply. It is different from the prayer quiet time which I also do multiple time a day. So how do you silence the mind chatter when you meditate? Here are some tips that may help you do just that.

 

Meditate daily

The more you meditate, the easier it will be for you to go right into it and be still. The more you practise mediation, the more you know how to silence the mind chatter that threatens to keep your mind and head still. If you only meditate once a while, you will definitely find it difficult to be still mindfully, but if you practise on a daily basis at set times, you will gradually get into the swing of it. If you are struggling to silence the mind chatter, don’t give up on meditating. Continue to meditate on a daily basis until it becomes second nature to you.

 

Pick the right time

It is important you mediate alone and when you know you won’t be disturbed. Picking the right time helps as it keeps your mind focused and free from distractions. It is a good idea to put gadgets on silence so you are not disturbed. I always make sure my iPhone and Apple Watch are on the silent mode so I am not disturbed.

 

Keep your mind still

Whenever you find your mind beginning to wander, acknowledge the thought, bring your mind right back and focus on your breathing. It is easy to wander off when you are trying to meditate, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Just ensure you continue to bring your mind back and you will find that the amount of time you do this decreases the more you meditate. This is a clear case of practise makes perfect!

Keep your eyes closed and no music

I know some people say they mediate with their eyes open and music on. It can be possible to do this but I won’t recommend it. I struggle to keep my mind focus even when using guided meditations so I won’t recommend you listen to anything. Keeping your eyes closed is also important as it keeps you looking within and your mind is focused on your meditation and nothing else.

 

Start gradually

If you are struggling to keep your mind still or stay awake while meditating, then it may be a great idea to start small. Start mediating for 5/10 mins for some days and then gradually increase the amount of time you spend mediating.

Four Tips to Help You Squeeze A Little More Sunshine Out of Summer

*Collaborative post.

Summer is over. Goodbye summer sunshine! No more long, warm days, humid nights, cold drinks, and hours of outdoor fun. Like all good things, summer is always over too soon. The sight of those leaves starting to fall might have you feeling a little regret that you didn’t make the most of this amazing season.

 But at this time of year, it helps to remember one thing: yes, summer is over and winter is coming, but it’s not here yet! Depending on where you live, you may still be enjoying a last few warm days, and daylight hours haven’t been reduced to a few hours yet. It’s not too late to go out and enjoy the last of the sunshine and outdoorsy lifestyle.

 If you’re feeling nostalgic for summer already, these tips will help you squeeze the last bit of enjoyment out of the next few weeks before the cold starts.

Take Every Opportunity to Be Outside

 One of the most rewarding ways to enjoy the dog-days of summer is to make sure you go out into the sun every chance you get. When you’re in the midst of summer, it’s easy to get used to the great weather and stop making the most of it, so when it’s nearly over, it’s really important to grab every bit of sunshine that comes your way. Whether you love heading outside to read a book on your own, or to chilling in the park with your friends, it’s not too late to get a cheap DAB radio on Latest Deals, pack a picnic and spend the whole day out in the sun.

An outdoor patio is ideal—bonus points if you have a hammock—but remember, outdoor time is about more than sunshine. It’s about a summer attitude: give yourself permission to indulge in some hard-core relaxing and enjoy taking time out.

 

Get Your Friends Involved

 When you look back on the summer, one of the characteristics features of the season is often the fact that you spend loads of time with your friends. There’s something about summer that makes groups of friends stick together day and night, almost as if the summer is just one long hang-out session. So it’s always quite sad when summer’s over, as it can sometimes feel as if the time for long, low-pressure hanging out is over. But this needn’t be the case! Of the best ways to make the most of the end of the season is to double down on seeing your friends. Getting your friends involved in things you enjoy as the seasons change is a great way to signal that your ‘all in’ attitude doesn’t have to depend on summer.

 

Make the Most of Your Local Community
 While catching a flight to an exotic island can be fun, save overseas trips for when winter has actually arrived, and you’re stuck inside and craving warmth and summer sunshine. One of the joys of the final days of Summer is the opportunity to make the most of your hometown, especially if there are festivals or markets on the go. Whatever your local community does best—whether it’s fruit and veg markets or outdoor theatre—spend your last warm days supporting the activities and events that it’s easy to take for granted when summer is in full swing.

 A day-trip ambling around your local area and seeing what’s on offer is a great way to appreciate your neighbourhood and support local artists, producers and craftsmen. And if you don’t have a clue what’s going down in your town, check out the website for the local tourism board. You may be intrigued to spot several budget-friendly or free events, which will provide ample entertainment for the final days of the season.

Tick Some DIY Chores off Your List

 If you love decorating your house, chances are you invest quite a lot of energy and time on home improvement projects. While getting your hands dirty with DIY can be rewarding, doing everything on your own steam can be draining and time-consuming. The last few weeks of warm weather is a good opportunity to attempt some of the summer DIY ideas you may have lined up but haven’t got around to because you were too busy lounging by the pool. You still have the benefit of slightly longer days to allow you to work into the evening, and you’re still going to have that extra enjoyment and relaxation which you get from doing physical work when it’s warm.

 Whether you’ve just started to notice the leaves falling, or you’re feeling a little chill in the air, the first signs of the end of summer don’t have to mean that summer is over. These tips will help you squeeze a little extra juice out of the season.
