Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier BC Homes

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier BC Homes

Hello BC! Vancouver parents do such a great job at keeping their children safe and healthy. They help them with homework, take them to parks and museums, keep up on their well-child visits and immunizations, and feed them healthy well-rounded diets. Here is one more thing parents can do for their children’s health.

Because we live in such a chemical-filled world, any time parents can cut down on the amounts of chemicals used in the home, the better. Here are a few ways to do that using something you probably already have in your pantry: white vinegar.

  • Clean windows with a spray bottle filled with 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and a dab of liquid dish soap. Make sure you label the bottle and keep it out of the reach of children.
  • Clean your drains and pipes with 1 cup baking soda, and 1 cup hot white vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse the drain with hot water. The baking soda and vinegar will foam up in the pipes, and clean away debris and germs.
  • Deodorize your home by boiling a mixture of water and white distilled vinegar in a pot. The vinegar odor will only last a few minutes, and will carry away odors with it.
  • Use distilled white vinegar to keep ants away from your home. Spray undiluted distilled white vinegar along the outside of your home wherever they like to come in.

There are many other natural home cleaning products: just search the internet! Good luck Richmond parents – you are wonderful, and so are your children!

Easy First Bike For Vancouver Kids

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Easy First Bike For Vancouver Kids There’s a new way for Vancouver kids to learn how to ride a bike. At first glance, balance or no-pedal bikes look just like any other kid’s bike. Look closer, however, and you notice that they are missing something: pedals.

In my Delta neighborhood cul-de-sac, I have seen toddlers as young as two hop on these bikes, scoot around for a few minutes and in no time at all, they are balancing like a pro. Vancouver balance bike sellers say that when a child is ready for the real thing, no training wheels are required.

If you are interested in getting a no-pedal bike for your child, don’t buy a size up. Both of your child’s feet should be firmly planted on the ground when he or she is sitting on the seat.

I promote children’s health and fitness in Vancouver and sell a nutritional product that many Delta families enjoy. To learn about the top children’s nutrition pick of the year, call or email me today.

MXI Corp Announces: ‘XoPhoria’

New Anti Aging Product In Vancouver

When it comes to anti aging skin care, Vancouver women naturally tend to focus most of their attention on their faces. In fact, in 2008 it was reported that 97% (98% in 2006) of female anti aging beauty care purchases are for facial skin care products. But what about the rest of you? Skin you reveal on your hands, chest and legs can give away your age if you’re not careful — no matter how much attention you give to your face. Areas that receive the most incidental UV exposure, like the hands and the décolletage, are very sensitive to the aging process. So when it comes to dynamic anti aging skin care in Vancouver, love the skin you’re in.

UPDATE: In 2000, one of the great scientific achievements occurred when the sequencing of the human genome revealed the entire genetic blueprint. That discovery led cutting edge skin care Beauty Scientists to explore how skin-related genes function and, more importantly, respond to aging and environmental stress at the molecular level. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Genome_Project

Most Vancouver folks probably know that stress actually causes a physiological reaction in your body that results in the production of cortisol, known by scientists as ‘the stress hormone.’ Cortisol causes inflammation in the organs of your body, including the skin. That’s right. It’s not a typo. Your skin is an organ! And just like other organs, it can become inflamed. The result? Inflamed pores clog more easily. Inflamed collagen can result in wrinkles. Other signs of skin inflammation include itchiness, dryness and acne. The fact of the matter is that Vancouver men and women wear their stress on their skin. The question is, what can be done about it?

Vancouver residents: address your stress. Don’t ignore it!

Learn to identify feelings associated with stress so you can self-soothe through coping strategies such as deep breathing, exercising, meditation or yoga. Carve out time for yourself to minimize tension. Relax in a luxurious bath or shower. Get a massage at a plush Vancouver day spa. Unclench your jaw. And, of course, take care of your skin—keep it hydrated by moisturizing morning and night. Remember, to get maximum benefits from your moisturizer, apply it to damp skin.

What are peptides and do they matter? Scientifically speaking, peptides are tiny fragments of protein molecules: short chains of amino acids that naturally occur in the skin. Practically speaking, peptides are a growing trend in anti aging skin care! What do peptides do? Peptides promote the natural production of collagen and elastin, both of which plump the skin and give it elasticity. And both of which decline as we age. In skin care products, dynamic peptides can work together with glycerin to enhance the stratum corneum to increase hydration which in turn, aids in the natural production of collagen. Not surprisingly, the use of peptides in dynamic commercial products sold in BC has significantly risen in recent years. Another peptide getting its fair share of attention is pal-KT. Expect to see more from peptides in the future.

Skin tone actually plays a role in how old—or young—you look. How do we know that? Notable Scientists used digital photos of real women to create 3D images of faces with a variety of skin tone patterns. These successful scientists removed all other age-defining features such as facial furrows, lines and wrinkles. Then, over 400 subjects were asked to view the faces, guess the age, and rate them for how healthy they looked and how attractive they appeared. The faces with the most even skin tone, or most uniform color distribution, were not only judged to be younger but they also received significantly higher ratings for attractiveness and looking healthy. So if you are a Delta man or woman with younger-looking skin on your mind, skin tone should be too.

As you age, your skin does, as well. Not exactly rocket science. Or is it? Every time your skin is exposed to a change in its environment (for example, you scrape it, go out on a sunny day in Vancouver or even apply moisturizer), the cells in your skin respond by turning on and turning off thousands of different genes at the same time. Using scientific advances that have recently emerged from the Human Genome Project, skin scientists are beginning to gain a deeper understanding of the genes involved in the skin aging process. Meet the gene chip. No bigger than the size of your thumbnail, the gene chip can measure the signals sent out by thousands of genes at a time. Using gene chips, skin scientists are in the process of identifying the genes that play a role in maintaining your skin, as well as how the signals or messages sent out by genes change as your skin begins to age.

Scientists watch and learn. By comparing the genetic composition of the skin of younger and older women, scientists have observed the ups and downs of genes related to inflammation, pigmentation, collagen breakdown, hydration, antioxidant response and lipid synthesis over time. The benefits for Vancouver residents: Ingredients for anti aging. Scientists have determined that a strong moisture barrier in the top layer of your skin is key for maximum inner skin performance and have identified (and are continuing to identify) ingredients that hydrate to improve skin’s appearance.

Healthy Skin for Delta Kids

   Posted by: Phil    in Child Health

Healthy Skin for Delta Kids

Hi! Welcome to my Delta children’s health blog. Today’s topic is ‘Healthy Skin for Delta Children.’

The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it’s easy to take for granted all that our skin does for us. It is our first defense against germs, it regulates body temperature, it gives us the sense of touch, and so much more. This organ is always hard at work and parents in the Vancouver area need to be sure it’s working well for their children.

A common skin problem in our BC climate is simple irritation. Irritated skin is more likely to crack, which can increase the risk for infection. If your child’s skin is irritated, look around at some of the products in your home that may be causing it. Soaps, detergents, dryer sheets, and other household cleaners all have chemicals and fragrances that can be irritating. Delta parents can try switching brands or reducing use of these products.

Basic skin care for children should include moisturizing after bathing, using fragrance-free products, and practicing good sun protection. If dry skin is an issue for your child, pick up a humidifier at any Langley, Surrey, or Richmond drugstore and allow it to run in your child’s room while they sleep.

If simple skin irritation can’t be controlled, or if your child develops other skin issues, make sure to take them to your Delta pediatrician.

My name is Phil Hoskins and I want to help Delta families raise healthy, happy kids. My Vancouver home business sells Peanut Butter Cups. If you are interested in learning more, visit my website at http://philhoskins.com/more-about-xocai or give me a call at 604.943.8598.

Delta Parents Who Reduce Stress May Have Healthier Kids

Moms and dads in the Vancouver area are always looking for ways to keep their kids healthy, but some of them might not know that reducing their own stress levels can have great benefits for their children.

A recent study shows that stressed-out parents are more likely to have an obese child, and childhood obesity in Langley is a risk factor for a variety of diseases and disorders.

The main culprits behind this trend are the parents who are too busy and stressed out to provide healthy food to their children.

It’s true that nutritious, well-rounded meals take a little more work, and they can seem more expensive compared to their over-processed counterparts. However, in the long-run, a healthy lifestyle will be better on your pocketbook.

When parents include time in their busy Richmond and Surrey schedules to de-stress, it can benefit the entire family.
Furthermore, learning to deal with stress in a healthy way is an important skill for parents and children, so next time you visit your Delta family practitioner or pediatrician, ask about ways your whole family can reduce stress.

Hi, I’m Phil Hoskins and I own a home business in Vancouver that sells Peanut Butter Cups. I am very concerned about issues related to the health of children such as proper nutrition and vitamins.

If you would like to know more about my home-based business or Peanut Butter Cups, please give me a call at 604.943.8598.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Xocai Scam Report For Delta BC

   Posted by: Phil    in Home Business

Xocai Scam Report For Delta BC

Xocai Scam Reports have become a problem in Delta BC. MLMs make easy targets for Delta BC scammers because there are a lot of competing companies, many who are unscrupulous when it comes to seeking new recruits with doubtful news.

One of the most common scam report strategies in Delta BC is for an MLM distributor to post an article announcing a ‘chocolate scam‘ or other misleading headline, and then working to recruit curious BC people into a competing MLM. This is known as a ‘pirate’ tactic in the MLM community, and is really a scam in and of itself.

You see, chocolate scam reports, and announcements of Xocai scams are little more than sensational headlines designed to catch your eye. Upon evaluation, most Xocai skeptics will see that we have a great product to sell at a fair market price, with a wonderful opportunity to build and grow your own home business. it’s not a scam; there are thousands of people in the Xocai family, many of them in and around Delta BC, and they stay because we have created a good, honest business around selling one of the world’s healthiest chocolate treats.

So if you are browsing the internet in Delta BC, and come across a warning about the Xocai scam in Norway, or a skeptical review of Xocai in Oslo, bear in mind that most of these efforts are being presented by scammers who are more interested in selling their own products than in presenting an honest review of our products.

If you have any questions about a chocolate scam that you have heard of, or specific news about a Xocai scam that you are worried about, please contact me directly; I am happy to answer your questions.

Watch for my white paper titled ‘MLM Scam Report’; I am working on it and hope to release it before the end of the month.

Langley Kids Health Guard Against Chapped Skin

When it comes to your Langley child’s health, you might first think of their diet. While putting vitamins and minerals inside your child’s body is important, you also need to pay attention to what is going on on the outside. I’m talking about your child’s skin.

The skin is our body’s largest organ and when skin’s smoothness is disrupted, small cracks and openings can create an entryway for bacteria and germs.

Active Langley kids don’t often think of the condition of their skin until it starts hurting. Playing outside in hot, cold, or dry weather can lead to small cracks around knuckles or nails. This painful condition is called dermatitis, or extreme dryness. Temperature extremes in Langley make it harder to keep skin moist and healthy – dry, chapped and cracked skin is common in summer and winter.

Many kids lick their lips until they turn red or bleed. Reminding your child to drink plenty of water can prevent over-dryness.  Using a humidifier during the night in your child’s bedroom can also help.

Make sure you leave moisturizing lip balm in handy locations: by their bed, the front door and in the car so reapplying it becomes habit. Remind them to slick some over their cuticles as well, to prevent cracking.

Surrey dermatologists suggest a using a daily skin moisturizer that contains shea butter and aloe to draw moisture into the skin and keep it in place.

Encourage Surrey kids to use waterproof gloves when playing outside in the cold. Lightweight gloves with grips added to the palms are great for playing ball and riding bikes. In addition to protecting skin from dryness, they keep small hands from slipping. You can pick these up at BC sporting good stores or Surrey big box stores.

Using a non-drying sanitizer is another way to prevent bacteria from entering through the skin. Look for brands that are alcohol-free to prevent excessive dryness.

For additional tips for Surrey children’s health and to learn about a nutritional supplement kids love, contact me today at 604.943.8598!
