Pedirelax foot cream review PLUS a huge giveaway!

I love all lotions, creams and butters and I thoroughly enjoy slathering them on from my head to my fee… No wait. I lie. From my head to my ankles. I find foot creams to be a pain. Especially in summer. Most creams and balms are think and greasy. Whilst they can do a great job at moisturising and healing, they leave a slippery film on your feet that I hate – you can’t put on your shoes, walking around leaves your footprints everywhere and I am not putting on socks in this heat waiting for the cream to absorb. So what do I do? I skip it completely. What does that result in? Dry skin and cracked heels that should not be shown off in pretty summer sandals. You feel my pain? So what should you do? You go to Clicks or Dis-Chem right now and go get yourself Pedirelax foot cream. Pedirelax foot cream review PLUS a huge giveaway! Pedirelax Diabetic Foot Care Cream – R99.95 for 100ml I was very surprised when I tried the cream for the first time as it seemed way too light to be effective. I was wrong. Even though it is super light (which also means that it absorbs very quickly), it is very hydrating and moisturising and will sort out dryness and cracked heels in no time. I also find the cream to be very soothing when my feet feel a bit puffy or swollen. Why is the cream good for diabetics? Diabetes can cause dehydration, impaired circulation and increased risk of infection which means that diabetics really have to take...

Learning through play with Barney and WIN! (CLOSED)

And the winner is… Claire! “Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.” -Joseph Chilton Pearce Play is extremely important during early childhood development. Through play children learn how to interact and engage with the world around them, as well as developing imagination, physical, cognitive and emotional strength, creativity and building gross and fine motor skills. Toys and games play a very important role in early childhood development as it stimulates imagination, creativity and aids in building fine motor skills. The importance of toys in Early Childhood Development According to parenting and early childhood specialist, Lynda Smith, toys and games assist hugely with igniting the senses and imagination, and basic developmental concepts such as identifying shapes, colours and numbers. Moreover, they encourage motor development (from rolling and crawling, to jumping and running) and cognitive function. With these skills, children – from babies through to preschoolers – can better understand their environment and start to make full use of their minds and bodies. “The right books, music, puzzles and soft toys all help children better understand the world around them and develop fine motor skills. When children are empowered and encouraged to learn by those closest to them from early on in life, they are more likely to cope better at school,” says Smith. Smith adds that parents need to recognise the ways children learn through their senses. She mentions how soft toys, for instance, help to develop imaginary play. Kids’ TV programmes, like Barney and Friends, allow children to identify with characters and encourage imagination. These programmes motivate children to play outside, share with others and,...

Love2Smile this February and WIN! (CLOSED)

And the winner is … Tracy! Congratulations! I’ll be in contact soon. xoxo It’s national Fresh Breath Week and IVOhealth’s oral hygiene expert Dirna Grobbelaar shares top tips to give you the confidence you need to show of your pearly whites. Also stick around for details on how you can win a smile makeover worth R5 000 (a prize I would love to win!) and a fresh breath giveaway of our own. About 80 to 90% of bad breath comes from poor oral hygiene. “Brushing correctly, cleaning the tongue and interdental cleaning are key for fresh breath confidence that comes from a super-clean mouth,” says Grobbelaar. When plaque and food debris break down in the mouth they release foul odours, cause irritation and disease. An effective daily oral care routine should remove this bacteria from the teeth, gums and tongue. Brushing seems elementary but not everyone does it right. “Brushing correctly means two minutes, twice a day. Use a soft brush and fluoride toothpaste and slightly angle the brush to reach just under the gum line as well as the tooth surface.” Over a third of South Africans admit they never floss. “The mouth isn’t clean until it’s clean in-between,” says Grobbelaar. ”If floss is not your style choose an alternative. Sunstar GUM has the widest range of interdental tools in South Africa, with everything from tiny brushes and floss handles to high-tech toothpicks with built-in fluoride.” The tongue can be another hiding place for the baddies that cause bad breath. Gently scrape the tongue on a daily basis then gargle with alcohol-free mouthwash for extra fresh-breath confidence. Grobbelaar...
