What Benefits Can One Reap When Using Chemical Free Face Products

21 Sep

Women all around the world would agree that cosmetics are as essential to us as the air we breathe. Make up, foundation, bath products and many other cosmetic pleasantries that we use everyday are usually good quality products that help us boost our personal appearance and self-esteem. But is their declared quality and high price a valid argument in favour of buying them, or we should ask for something more?

Fresh clear healthy skin on the face of beautiful woman

Our skin absorbs everything we put on it. And even the priciest cosmetics contain a significant amount of harsh chemicals and damaging toxins. Once the skin absorbs them, they are very likely to cause clogged pores, premature aging of the skin and other serious irritations, and are extremely hard to get rid of. The face is the most exposed and delicate part of the skin, therefore we should be extremely attentive when applying something on it, and always tend to use organic, chemical free face products.

Yoga Block: How to Choose the Best

8 Mar

Why is a yoga block one of the necessary props when practicing yoga at home or in a yoga studio? The answer is because it is specially designed to support the body when doing different yoga postures. If you are a beginner and you are wondering which yoga block will be your ideal option, we urge you to take time reading our suggestions that you might find useful when choosing the right size, weight and structure of your yoga block.

Yoga Bricks

When browsing through online stores you can see that there is a vast array of options for yoga blocks, but we recommend you to purchase one of the three main options- cork, wood or foam yoga block.

Let’s see what each of them features and the difference in prices.

Cork yoga block- the unisex option

What is important to know about cork yoga blocks? They are a great option if you want to leave them at home when traveling abroad (even though their weight is not to heavy and not too light) and they come in one colour only. Another important feature related to this type of yoga blocks is that they are extremely durable, they won’t lose their shape nor can get easily nicked or scratched. You can freely move around on the yoga mat with them especially when practicing the supine postures, plus their structure allows you to rest your head on them without feeling discomfort. Besides all the great features there is one thing you might not like about the cork yoga blocks. And what is it? Well, if you have a tendency to sweat a lot, after a certain amount of time your cork block will absorb the sweat and it will start to smell a bit strange and you’ll feel uncomfortable using it.

Foam yoga block- the best-seller option

Foam blocks are the most common and the most affordable type of the variety of options on the market. They are lightweight, which makes them easy to pack and to carry around and have very affordable prices. Browsing through web pages you can find a vast range of colours of foam yoga blocks that can match with your other yoga props and of course, your preferences. They have a versatile use and offer great comfort when practicing different yoga postures. Many reputable sites offer foam blocks in several sizes, all in all, to accommodate every body type. But keep in mind that foam blocks can vary in sturdiness and quality, and most of them are not environmentally friendly.

Wood yoga block- the heavier and the priciest option

This type of yoga prop is considered to be the heaviest option of all. And not only that but blocks made of wood are, at the same time, hard to rest on them, heavy if you want to take them with you when attending your yoga classes or when traveling to another place and they can scratch and nick within time. Besides all the above-mentioned features if you are interested in buying them you have to know that their price is the highest compared to the other options.
