How to Trim Your Nails

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology are advising the public about a simple yet important self-care routine: nail grooming. Not only do short, well-manicured nails look great, they say, they are also less likely to harbor dirt and bacteria, which can lead to an infection. In addition, the right nail clipping technique can help prevent common issues like hangnails and ingrown toenails.

“Although trimming your nails seems pretty straightforward, there are some important steps you should follow to ensure a healthy cut” via @AADskin

“Short nails stay cleaner and break less often, which is good for both your appearance and your health,” says board-certified dermatologist and nail specialist Shari Lipner, MD, PhD, FAAD. “Although nail clipping seems pretty straightforward, there are some important steps you should follow to ensure a healthy cut, like disinfecting your tools and leaving your cuticles alone.”

To properly trim your nails, Dr. Lipner recommends the following tips:

  • Soften the nails. The best time to trim your nails is immediately after taking a bath or shower. However, if that isn’t possible, soak your nails in lukewarm water for a few minutes to soften them.
  • Gather the proper tools. Use a nail clipper or nail scissors for your fingernails and a toenail clipper for your toenails. Remember to disinfect your tools monthly. To disinfect them, soak a small scrub brush in a bowl of 70 to 90 percent isopropyl alcohol and then use the brush to scrub your nail clippers or nail scissors. Afterwards, rinse the tools in hot water and dry them completely before putting them away.
  • To trim your fingernails, cut almost straight across the nail. Use a nail file or emery board to slightly round the nails at the corners, as this will help keep them strong and prevent them from catching on things like clothing or furniture.
  • To reduce your chances of getting an ingrown toenail, cut straight across when trimming your toenails. Toenails grow more slowly than fingernails, so you may find that you do not need to trim these nails as often.
  • Smooth uneven or rough edges using a nail file or emery board. Always file the nail in the same direction, as filing back and forth can weaken your nails.
  • Leave your cuticles alone. Cuticles protect the nail root, so it’s important to avoid cutting your cuticles or pushing them back. When you trim or cut your cuticles, it’s easier for bacteria and other germs to get inside your body and cause an infection. If you get a nail infection, it can sometimes take a long time to clear.
  • Moisturize after trimming to help keep your nails flexible. This is especially important when the air is dry, as dry nails split more easily.

“Nails are a reflection of your overall health,” Dr. Lipner says. “Keep an eye on your nails, and if you notice a change in the color, texture or shape of your nail, see a board-certified dermatologist. While some changes are harmless, others could be a sign of a disease, such as melanoma, or an infection, such as a nail fungal infection.”

These tips are demonstrated in “How to Trim Your Nails,” a video posted to the AAD website and YouTube channel. This video is part of the AAD’s “Video of the Month” series, which offers tips people can use to properly care for their skin, hair and nails. A new video in the series posts to the AAD website and YouTube channel each month.

Handling Your Anger

5 STEPS TO UNDERSTANDING YOUR ANGER AND HANDLING IT EFFECTIVELY IN INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

Anger can be a normal and healthy emotion. So why is it often so problematic? Here are a few signs that your anger may be harmful rather than helpful:

  • I’m often told I have a “bad temper”
  • Others distance themselves from me when I’m angry
  • Expressing anger leads to fighting
  • I don’t feel understood when I’m angry

Let’s take some time to understand anger in a different way.

As normal and as common as anger is, the emotion is frequently misunderstood and mishandled. In today’s day and age, we are taught that we are supposed to let others know exactly how we feel, which can be helpful at times; however, expressing anger is complicated for two main reasons. First, because it is often a secondary emotion, meaning that people often use anger to mask more vulnerable feelings such as hurt disappointment or fear. These feelings may be frightening because they can leave us feeling weak and helpless. This may cause us to resort to showing anger instead so that we can maintain a sense of control. Second, anger can be problematic because expressing anger, in the wrong way, can trigger fear, defensiveness and anger in the recipient. This may cause the other person to begin to protect him or herself instead of trying to understand you.

So What Is Anger?

In its purest form, anger can be a natural response to feeling purposely violated or wronged in some way. When we believe that someone has intentionally violated us, anger can give us the energy to stand up for ourselves. However, the way in which we understand and express our anger can either cause constructive or destructive results.

If expressing anger leaves you feeling misunderstood, or others feeling hurt, angry or shut down, these tips may help.

1. TAKE A MOMENT TO BREATHE

When you notice that you are feeling angry, slowing down your breath can give you a sense of self-control and peace. This will give you time and space to think about your process so that you don’t go on autopilot. If you feel tension in a particular part of your body, breathe relaxation into it.    

2. NOTICE WHAT YOU ARE FEELING

Notice the thoughts that are passing through your mind and the emotions in your body. Is there a tinge of sadness or fear? Are you longing for something? Do you need reassurance? Because many people fear that the other person won’t be there for them in the way they need, these softer feelings often get ignored.  

3. DISCUSS YOUR CONCERNS

Let the other person know that you have some apprehension about sharing your feelings because you fear that he or she won’t be receptive. For example, you may say something like “It’s hard for me to tell you what I need because I think you will judge me.” Once this is in the open, discuss this with the other person until you feel safe enough to share your more vulnerable feelings.

4. BE WILLING TO ADDRESS THE SOFTER FEELINGS

Acknowledging feelings such as loneliness and the desire for acceptance and appreciation can trigger feelings of vulnerability. However, expressing these feelings can connect you to others. When you let someone know your needs, if the dynamic is healthy, the other person will likely try to understand them and help search for a viable solution.

5. BE SOLUTION ORIENTED

Think about your intentions. What are you trying to accomplish by addressing your anger with others? Are you trying to hurt them in the same way you believe they hurt you? If so, this can feed into a destructive pattern of fractured relationships. On the other hand, if your goal is to resolve the issue so that you can build trust and harmony with the other person, then addressing your anger can be helpful. See my blog on Conflict Resolution for detailed steps on how to address conflict.

Understanding and addressing your anger in a way that restores harmony in your relationships can be easy when we focus on the right thing. Call me today for a free consultation so that I can help you change your relationship with anger from one that is harmful to one that creates peace.

Fetch: CBD For Pets

Numerous international studies suggest that CBD may be beneficial for pets with issues such as anxiety, inflammation, seizures generalized pain, nausea and inappetence. New Fetch tinctures which some in two bottle sizes depending on the size of your pet) contain full-spectrum CBD obtained through CO2 extraction from American-grown industrial hemp. There is no THC (the chemical in marijuana that produces a “high” sensation) and therefore no psychoactive effects. Safe and gentle for beloved pets, each Fetch formula is third party lab-tested for potency and residual solvents. All of the plant material used is tested for heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides.

The company was started by a Boulder, Colorado-based full-service hemp extraction lab (founded in 2016 by combat veteran, Craig Henderson) called Extract Labs. It’s a great product to use to chill out your pet if they have anxiety, have to travel or are in stressful situations. For older pets, it’s also fantastic for joint and muscle pain.

Demi Lovato’s Overdose

25-year-old American singer, songwriter, and actress, Demi Lovato was found lying unconscious in her home on Tuesday after a suspected overdose. She is currently recovering and receiving treatment at a hospital in LA. Lovato has stated how she has previously had issues dealing with eating disorders, self-harm, addiction, and mental health problems. She had also made a documentary regarding her struggles that affected her daily life along with trying to stay sober, but in June 2018 Lovato released a new song titled Sober in which she sings “I’m not sober anymore.” Her documentary went on explaining how these problems began at a very young age, such as having suicidal thoughts and bulimia when she was only 10 years old, and trying cocaine for the first time when she was 17. Even before starting the hit series on Disney Channel’s “Sonny with a Chance” and “Camp Rock,” she had been a huge target for bullying. There were many struggles and pressures on her as she drove quickly to fame at such a young age. Lovato is currently receiving lots of support from fans and celebrities throughout social media while wishing her a quick recovery.

ANDAZ MAYAKOBA RESORT RIVIERA MAYA

ANAUM WELLNESS & SPA AT ANDAZ MAYAKOBA RESORT RIVIERA MAYA LAUNCHES NEW MENU

~ Refreshing New Spa Menu Highlights Local Ingredients, Beauty Partners and Mayan-Inspired Treatments in Lush Natural Setting ~

Naum Wellness & Spa, the 10,000-square foot verdant wellness hideaway at Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya, has just launched a new spa menu. The new menu, which incorporates many local and natural ingredients, brings in traditional Mayan rituals and offers a variety of spa services promoting health, beauty and inner harmony. The spa’s namesake, Naum, is the Mayan God of consciousness and mind. The Mayan-influenced spa, whose décor follows the same theme as the menu, is simply designed to blend into its lush jungle surroundings, immersing guests into the culture and nature of the region. The six open and airy treatment suites have oversized windows with beautiful decks and striking green views that bring guests a sense of peaceful relaxation.

The new spa menu, which has been carefully curated by Spa Manager Daniel Escalante, is inspired by native Mayan traditions known as “rituals”, which are reflective of the mind, body and spirit. The new treatment Rituals on the menu include the Ritual Sac Ki, which frees the body of harmful toxins and reveals fresher and brighter skin with a dry exfoliation using “Sac Ki”, the Mayan word for white henequen considered the green gold for the Mayan culture. This is followed by an invigorating massage with the anti-inflammatory power of the sacred copal oil. The second Ritual is the Ritual de Ixi’im y Chia, which offers the antioxidant power of the exotic Blue Corn and the purifying power of “Chia”, the Mayan word for “Strength”. The treatment also includes a nourishing massage with shea butter enriched with the regenerative benefits of calendula extract. Couples can reconnect with each other and renew their love through one of the Lovers Retreat rituals including the Eternal Romance Ritual which combines Swedish massage and hot stones with the exquisite aphrodisiac synergy of clove essential oil and wild roses. Rituals range from 90 to 120 minutes and are priced between $349 for a single treatment to $539 for the couple’s treatments.

The Naum Rituals were created to pay homage to oneself and the Mayan Gods, and to find harmony based on the guest’s selected area of wellness intention – whether that be Clarity (Tsoolik), Rest (He’lel), Strength (Muuk’) or Connection (Molcintah). Each Ritual is a three-part experience, alluding to the balancing nature of the number three with a beginning, middle and end. The Rituals begins with a Mayan Time of Reflection, followed by the treatment experience itself, and concludes with a Mayan Celebration to help guests balance and reconnect with themselves and the universe.

Apart from the traditional Rituals, spa guests can also choose from a selection of facials, massages and body treatments, many of which feature local and natural ingredients. Valuing the importance of the science of beauty care, Andaz Mayakoba created specific treatments in partnership with innovative beauty brands such as Naturopathica and Barbor, renowned for their high-quality formulas that contain natural plant extracts mixed with technology to combat a variety of skin problems.  Highlights from the new menu include the following:

 

Naum Signature Treatment, 90 minutes, $316

This Mayan-influenced massage induces the flow of vital energy through the stimulation of each of the body’s centers, harmonizing mind, body and spirit, in addition to improving the circulatory system and releasing toxins from the skin.

In partnership with Naturopathica, the anti-aging facial is a reparative, regenerating and corrective treatment that combats the signs of aging. Active ingredients Argan Plant Stem Cells, Matrixyl synthe’6 and a Tri-Retional blend work together to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin tone and firmness.

 

Xoco – Tequila Body Wrap, 60 minutes, $187

This locally inspired treatment revitalizes the skin and combats stress with powerful Mexican antioxidants. Chocolate and tequila, in addition to being delicious delicacies, have the ability to preserve beauty and youth while relaxing the mind and senses on a path to emotional well-being.

Jade Oro y Plata Body Wrap, 60 minutes, $187

“After seeing the success of our Naum Wellness & Spa in our first year of opening, we are excited to debut a completely refreshed menu for our valued guests,” said Spa Manager Daniel Escalante. “We have partnered with innovative beauty brands that share our values of sustainability and holistic well-being and have introduced new treatments and rituals that incorporate indigenous methods and local ingredients that are native to Mexico.
