Flowers Waste Management in Kenya

Flowers waste management is a must-know issue for the flower farmers and producers as well as consumers. As much as flowers are very important to the Kenyan economy in many ways, for instance earning the country foreign exchange, its production should never be a threat to the Kenyan environment. This is why before farmers begin to venture into flower farming they need to have clear and laid out strategies on how they will conduct flowers waste management.

Like any other products, flower production could lead to a lot of toxic waste which could pose risk to the environment and the flora and fauna in the ecosystem. Effective ways hence need to be employed to minimize this pollution Continue reading

Beauty Tips for Cold Weather

Beauty Tips for the cold weather

Cold weather can lead to dryness of the skin, as the skin pulls moisture out of the air–a problem in cold weather, when humidity plummets. Making matters worse, production of skin’s natural moisturizers dips with age. What’s more, as skin turnover slows, the dry surface cells have a harder time sloughing off–hence the flakiness.

Consider this as the final insult: Some health conditions that become increasingly common as you get older (including diabetes, high blood pressure, and thyroid disorders) are associated with dryness. Some tips we have found useful in defeating this are as follows:,

Take short showers (no more than 10 minutes) and use warm water

Hot water might feel good on a cold morning, but it strips skin of its natural oils, leaving it dehydrated and itchy.

Use creamy cleansers

Opt for mild face and body washes–the milkier looking, the better. Steer clear of harsh detergents such as triclosan and ammonium lauryl sulfate; instead, check the label for gentle surfactants like sodium laureth sulfate and cocoamidopropyl betaine.

Slather on a rich moisturizer

Post-shower, pat skin dry and apply an oil-based cream instead of a lighter lotion to better trap and lock moisture into skin to fight cold weather dryness. To boost absorption, warm your jar of cream in a sink of hot water while you shower.

Hydrating skin at least twice a day is ideal–after a morning shower or bath and then right before turning in for the night.

Changing food can help your skin

Cold food and drinks slowed down your metabolism and blood circulation, while the hot ones stimulate them, help them to relax.

When applying Make-up;

Use waterproof mascara, eyeliner and lipliner as the weather might be wet outside hence causing your make/up to run and not stay on for long.

Use liquid foundation instead of powdered foundation.

Consider using a nude eye shadow color and pairing it with a dark lip stain.

It is also important to exfoliate your lips regularly so that your lip product will go on smoothly since your lips can often become chapped and dry due to cold weather.
