  • How to Keep Skin Hydrated This Fall

    Your skin is not only the biggest organ of the body; it is also one of the hardest working ones. Unlike your body's other organs, it is open to the elements and is constantly under attack from dirt, chemicals, weather conditions and hard work. To stay in top condition, it needs to be cared for day in and day out. One of the key aspects of skin care is hydration, particularly as the weather becomes drier and cooler. Here are a few ideas on how to keep skin hydrated this fall:

    1) Hydrate skin from the inside out

    Your skin may be on the outside, but good hydration begins on the inside. The average adult needs between two and three liters of fluid every day. Some of this will come from food, but the best source of hydration remains pure, fresh water. If you really don't like plain water, flavored varieties will work just as well. Other drinks do count towards your fluid intake, but try to avoid high sugar and carbonated drinks. The same is true of caffeinated beverages. A well-hydrated body will make the skin look and feel more supple. It will also be less likely to dry out and crack in dryer weather conditions. Continue Reading

    5 Reasons to Invest in High Quality Silk Bedding

    With all the different options out there these days, it can be a bit overwhelming to make the best choice for your bedding needs. Here we will explore some of the reasons why you might want to invest in silk bedding over other fine fabrics. We could come up with a hundred reasons but broke it down to 5 main points.

    1) Silk is a natural fabric. All of our Manito silk is chemical free. Why is this important? Since we spend up to half our lives in bed, we want to make sure that we choose a fabric to sleep on that will allow our skin to breathe. This will optimize the body's ability to rejuvenate itself during sleep. It also means no night sweats or complications that might arise from allergies to synthetic or down bedding. Silk is hypo-allergenic. We have had some people report that they stopped getting migraine headaches after they slept on our silk filled pillows!

    2) Has your town had an outbreak of bedbugs or mites? Have no fear, silk repels mites, bedbugs and any other creepy crawlies that might want to make their way into your bed. Silk is a very strong fabric and with it's repellent qualities that means you don't have to wash it as often as other fabrics if you don't need to. That will ensure that your silk sheets last for many years to come.

    3) Silk is a regulator of body temperature. That means it can keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It does double duty.

    4) If you want the softest skin & hair, silk also has beneficial effects on both. Stylists recommend silk pillowcases to their clients to help them keep their hair lush, healthy and strong. It is the perfect fabric for the delicate facial skin as it can aid with absorption of your night creams and prevent "pillowface" that over time can lead to fine lines & wrinkles.

    5) Silk feels amazing. Soft silkiness that makes you dream all day about returning to your bed. That alone makes it a fabulous investment for your home, the other many health and beauty benefits are an added bonus!

    These are just a few reasons to invest in high quality silk. We think once you go silk, you will never go back. If you have any questions please feel free to ask them in the box below. We love to talk about silk.
