November is National Healthy Skin Month

3 months ago

PHOTOGRAPHS OF NATASHA BERESFORD MISS LONDON BY ALAN STRUTT

November  marks the beginning of National Healthy Skin Month in the USA, a time to celebrate and promote healthy skin habits!

To celebrate the occasion we wanted to share some skincare tips and advice which you may find helpful.

This month-long event was created to raise awareness about how important it is to take care of your skin. It’s also an opportunity for people to learn more about the different factors that can affect their skin health and how they can best keep their skin looking and feeling its best. So why not  join in the celebration and show your skin some love this November and in future!

Natasha Beresford – Make up free Miss London, and the new face of CETUEM ! Photo by Alan Strutt

Natasha Beresford appeared in media throughout the world in October this year completely make up free when she won Miss Englands first ever make up free regional heat sponsored by CETUEM LONDON a British Made family run skincare brand.

Natasha realises the importance of looking after your skin ….

“Following a skincare routine and choosing the right products is so important to me” said Natasha” .  I suffered with acne as a teenager and into my early 20s, and I really struggled with finding the right products that wouldn’t cause a flare up. I was really insecure about my skin and even after my acne cleared, I struggled with hyperpigmentation for years. I’ve found that following a good skincare routine has not only improved my complexion, but has also reduced my skin issues and boosted my self-confidence!

Using the Cetuem skincare range has truly transformed my skin and has allowed me to feel confident in my own skin without wearing any makeup!”

Natasha recommends the SCR Gold Illuminating Skin Cleanser & SCR Gold Illuminating Skin Toner.   ” I currently use the SCR Gold Intensive Serum & SCR Gold Crème De Lite Moisturiser. I also love to use the SCR Gold Golden Glow Gel Skin Luminosity when I want that extra glow! I will put it over my moisturiser when I’m make up free, and will use it under my foundation when I wear makeup.

Head over to the CETUEM website to find out more about the brand by clicking the logo here

How you can Celebrate ​National Healthy Skin Month

Eat skin-healthy foods

Increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, and nuts can have a positive effect on your skin. Choose colorful fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, such as berries, spinach, sweet potatoes, and bell peppers.

Cleanse daily

Gently cleanse your skin twice a day with a mild cleanser to help remove debris, sweat, and excess oil. Make sure to avoid cleansers with harsh ingredients that could irritate your skin.

Moisturize regularly

Moisturizing with a hydrating lotion helps to protect your skin from the elements. Look for lotions that contain natural ingredients like aloe vera or shea butter.

Use sunscreen

Sun exposure is one of the leading causes of premature aging, so make sure to apply sunscreen on exposed areas of your skin every day. Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.

Treat yourself to a facial

Treat yourself to a relaxing facial to pamper your skin. A facial can help to deep clean your pores, reduce inflammation and redness, and leave you feeling rejuvenated.

 

Why ​National Healthy Skin Month is Important

Improves overall health and wellbeing

Good skincare is essential for general health and wellbeing. It helps protect you from the sun’s harmful rays, fights stubborn acne breakouts, and keeps your skin looking youthful and refreshed. Taking care of your skin now can help prevent more serious issues down the line, so it’s definitely worth investing some time in doing so!

Promotes a healthy self image

Taking care of your skin can be one of the most important things you do to boost your self-image. Knowing that you look as best as possible can make a huge difference in terms of feeling good about yourself – so make sure to take some time this month to give your skin the proper love and attention it deserves!

Encourages better practices

National Healthy Skin Month is not only about promoting healthier habits for our own well being – it’s also about encouraging others around us to do the same. By creating greater awareness around good skincare practices, we can help create positive changes that will benefit ourselves and those around us.

Protecting Your Pageant Gown: How To Shop For The Best Dress Garment Bag

Pageant gowns are not just dresses; they are a significant investment in your passion, career, or personal milestone. Ensuring their protection and maintaining their pristine condition is paramount. This comprehensive guide will help you navigate the world of dress garment bags, ensuring your pageant gown remains as stunning as the day you first wore it.

“Grand Garment Bag”

Best 2-In-1 Garment Travel Bag

If you’re looking for a more stylish dress bag that doubles up as a travel bag, then the Von Baer Grand is an exceptional choice. By using full-grain Italian leather, the Grand looks really smart, much better than the tacky plastic garment bags you sometimes find. Simply unzip the duffle style bag to reveal the built-in garment bag. This versatility makes it perfect for pageants and travel, ensuring your gown is safe, and your style is on point.

Optimal Material Choices For Longevity

Selecting the right material for your wedding travel bag is more than just a matter of preference; it’s about ensuring the longevity of your pageant gown. Durable, breathable fabrics protect your gown from moisture, dust, and other environmental factors that can cause damage. Thick canvas, for instance, is sturdy and allows your gown to breathe, preventing any moisture build-up that could lead to mold or mildew. Nylon and high-quality polyester are other excellent choices, offering resilience against wear and tear while maintaining the lightweight nature of the bag for easy transport. These materials are designed to withstand the rigors of travel and storage, effectively shielding your gown from the elements and keeping it in pristine condition for years to come.

Size Matters: Ensuring A Perfect Fit

The size of your garment bag is crucial in maintaining the integrity of your pageant gown. Choosing a bag that provides ample space is important, allowing your gown to rest comfortably without being compressed or crumpled. This consideration is especially vital for gowns with extensive detailing, like sequins and beads, or those with voluminous skirts. A garment bag with extra room can accommodate your gown’s full length and volume, ensuring that every detail remains as designed. This foresight prevents unwanted wrinkles and helps preserve the structural and aesthetic aspects of your gown, keeping it in its intended shape and form.

Practical Features For Enhanced Protection

The functionality of a garment bag is as significant as its size and material. Features such as sturdy zippers ensure that your gown remains securely enclosed within the bag. At the same time, comfortable handles and adjustable straps make transportation hassle-free. Additionally, consider bags that offer extra compartments or pockets for accessories like shoes, jewelry, and makeup. This keeps your pageant essentials organized and prevents any potential damage to your gown caused by these items shifting during transport. A well-designed garment bag should also include a robust hanger mechanism that can support the weight of your gown without the risk of tearing or sagging. This feature is crucial for maintaining the gown’s shape and preventing any strain on the fabric.

Weather-Resistant Options For Outdoor Events

For outdoor pageants or events, the weather can be an unpredictable element. Opt for a weather-resistant garment bag to ensure your gown remains protected from the elements. Waterproof or water-resistant materials are invaluable in guarding against rain, snow, and accidental spills. This feature becomes particularly important when traveling between venues or being exposed to varying weather conditions. A weather-resistant garment bag acts as a shield, keeping your gown dry and spotless, ensuring that you arrive at your event with your gown in impeccable condition.

Choosing A Stylish Yet Functional Design

Functionality doesn’t have to come at the expense of style. Many designers and brands have recognized the importance of aesthetics in garment bags, offering protective and stylish options. From classic and sophisticated designs to contemporary and trendy styles, there’s a range of garment bags to suit your taste. These bags not only protect your gown but also act as a fashion statement, reflecting your style and adding an extra layer of excitement to the pageant preparation process.

Maintaining Your Garment Bag For Long-Term Use

A quality garment bag is an investment in the longevity of your pageant gown, and its maintenance is crucial. Regular cleaning and inspections will help you identify any signs of wear or damage early on, extending the bag’s life. Avoid overstuffing the bag, as this can strain the material and zippers, and always store it in a cool, dry place when not in use. Proper care and storage of your garment bag ensure it remains a reliable protector of your gown, ready for use whenever the occasion arises.

Making A Sustainable Choice

In today’s world, making environmentally friendly choices is more important than ever. Consider garment bags made from sustainable materials. Look for brands that use recycled fabrics or eco-friendly practices in their production. Not only are these options better for the environment, but they often offer superior durability and quality.

Conclusion

Choosing the right garment bag for your pageant gown combines practicality, style, and protection. Whether the versatile Von Baer Grand for travel or a specially designed wedding travel bag, the right choice will ensure your gown remains as breathtaking as the moment you first saw it. Remember, a garment bag is not just a purchase but an investment in the longevity and beauty of your cherished gown.

This event redefines beauty by championing ethics, confidence, and natural allure. Ethical award recipients will be celebrated for showcasing eco-friendly fashion and securing pledges for tree planting. Their dedication will be rewarded with coveted eco-hampers.
As these winners progress to the Miss England final, their ongoing tree planting pledges will contribute to their success. The top 20 finalists will include those who amass the most tree planting pledges, competing for the esteemed title of national Ethical Queen and £1k Eco Hamper prize!
We Do Ethical stands as a beacon of empowerment, guiding those who aspire to create a world that values environmental consciousness, social responsibility, and purposeful progress. Let’s collaboratively leave an indelible and affirmative mark on our shared world.
