Dress to impress, flats to de-stress

Power dressing is more than a fashion statement; it is an ideal that gives women power and control over themselves. This is why it went from high heels to power heels, because more than the added height, it highlights the strength of enduring the pain and uneasiness all tucked under women’s greatest armor, poise.

Power heels may be good for your ego, but not entirely good for your feet. Stilettos at least 3 inches tall increase the pressure on the foot ball by 7 times, affecting the lower back every time you take a step. And this results in sore and inflamed tendons, or that familiar feeling of acute foot ache once the feet are flat on the ground after taking off your shoes.

Give your feet the break they deserve. Based on studies, it is recommended that heels touch the ground a few hours daily, with at least 2 hours of wearing low shoes. This will de-stress the muscles of your feet and calves after straining them in heels.

The birth of foldable flats has made it easier for women to go from glam to just downright comfy, sans the nuisance of toting an extra bag. Butterfly Twists offers a pair of quality, fashionable foldable shoes that you can just tuck in your bag, and wear them when the need arises.

However, the brand prides itself being more than an after-heels footwear, as the shoes’ soles are made durable enough to withstand long walks and different pavements.

The UK-based shoe brand just recently launched its Autumn/Winter ’13 Collection with over 30 designs. This innovative foldable footwear has also extended its design to cater to different women’s interests; adding to its new collection are the Windsor Wellies, the foldable rain boots, and Berkley, the foldable travel boots.

Coconut water: Good for your health, good for your skin

(Manila, Philippines) Many are aware that nature’s perfect nut aids in having a healthy body, but not everyone knows that it is also one of the key beauty secrets to maintaining youthful, supple, and glowing skin.

The skin is the largest organ in the entire body. This is why being mindful in caring for your skin is vital. It’s an open secret that hydration is the foundation of a healthy skin, and it comes in two common forms: topical moisturizing and hydration as we drink. As we age, the skin loses the ability to retain high levels of water, and the earlier people start to take care of the skin, the more it will be beneficial in the long run.

Packed with vitamins and minerals, coconut water has good hydrating properties. It is known to contain high levels of electrolytes, which come in the form of potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, and phosphorus. Electrolytes help with the absorption and balance of the body’s internal fluids.

Research has also shown that coconut water contains cytokines, which help regulate cell growth and division. They aid in minimizing aging, to balance the skin’s PH levels, and keep connective tissues strong and hydrated.

Ford Supermodel Charo Ronquillo swears by this drink as part of her beauty routine

International Supermodel Charo Ronquillo, Ford Supermodel of the World Philippines 2005 winner, and Tropicana Coco Quench endorser, also swears by this drink as part of her beauty routine. “Apart from having a good physique, glowing skin is important in my industry, so for an easy beauty fix, I hydrate with coconut water. Since I started with this lifestyle, I’ve seen how it has kept my skin glowing and healthy.”

Achieving glowing and beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight, as it is an effect of a healthy lifestyle. Hydrate from the inside and it will show on the outside. Tropicana Coco Quench is available in all leading supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide in 330ml and 1 liter packaging, with up to eight-month shelf life. The better news is that this drink has low calories, and has no cholesterol.
