Tips and Tricks for a Gorgeous Figure…On the Go!

At TEI Spa we want to look great but also have fun, go out and eat some of our favorite foods. Thats why we put together this AMAZING list of Dining out Dos and Don’ts!
 
 

Afraid dinner out will ruin your diet before you even start your entrée? These 10 dos and don’ts will help.

Some people trying to lose weight steer clear of restaurants to avoid the large portion sizes, bottomless bread baskets and all those high-calorie entries. But shunning restaurants altogether isn’t a realistic approach to weight loss — and it’s unnecessary.

You can eat out and lose weight. Start with this list of tips to help you navigate the menu options at your favorite fast-food joints and sit-down restaurants.

1. Set a budget
Determine how much you’re willing to eat before looking at the menu. You can give yourself some leeway by scheduling some exercise on or near days you plan to eat out. Putting in gym time or going for a brisk walk will help offset a little extra eating. And remember, be flexible. You can loosen up a bit on special occasions, as long as you eat carefully most of the time. (Just don’t let every day become a special occasion.)

2. Put on your game face
Decide on some guidelines before you go to a restaurant, and stick to them. For instance:

  • Skip the all-inclusive (prix fixe) menu and opt for à la carte selections. Doing so might not be as economical, but you’ll probably eat less.
  • Take one piece of bread, then ask your server to remove the breadbasket from the table.

3. Make special requests
You’re paying good money for that meal, so you’re entitled to make special requests or slight modifications. Why not say:

  • Can I have that without butter? Grilled? With the sauce on the side?
  • I’d like mixed greens instead of fries with my sandwich.

4. Practice portion control
Some restaurant portions can be two, three, even four times the “normal” size — especially super-sized fast food meals. Keep your portions in check by:

  • Ordering a salad as a starter and then splitting a main entrée with a friend.
  • Creating your own scaled-down meal from a couple of appetizers and/or side dishes.

5. Break down (language) barriers
If you don’t know what a preparation term means, ask. In general, though, the following words translate into high-fat, high-calorie dishes:

  • Au gratin, scalloped, hollandaise.
  • Parmigiana, scampi, Bolognese.

6. Downsize the super-size
Super-sized fast food meal options can be loaded with calories. Either:

    • Order something small, like a basic burger. After all, the first bite tastes the same as the last.
  • Order yourself a children’s meal.7. Watch out for extras
    The average burger with ketchup, lettuce and tomato isn’t so bad. But one with “the works” is usually a caloric nightmare. Skip:
  • Bacon, cheese and mayonnaise.Double-burger patties and extra pieces of bread.

8. Don’t go top heavy
Salad bars and garden salads grace menus across the country. But those extra toppings can sabotage your seemingly diet-conscious choices:

  • Go light on croutons, grated cheese and bacon.Opt for small amounts of low-fat or nonfat dressings on the side.

9. Don’t drink away your progress
A drink with dinner is fine, but too many margaritas may wreak havoc on your dieting resolve. Keep your appetite under control by:

  • Alternating alcoholic beverages with noncaloric sodas or sparkling water.Not drinking alcoholic beverages on an empty stomach.

10. Resign from the “clean plate club”
You paid for it so you have to eat it, right? Wrong. Just think of the health and emotional costs of those extra calories on your body. Downsize by:

  • Eating half the meal and doggie-bagging the rest.
  • Pushing your plate away when you’re full.
  • And remember to eat slowly. It takes 20 minutes for your body to recognize that it’s full.

 

And enjoy your time with Friends and Family! Now Bon Appetit!

See what Holistically Haute Editor in Chief, Rachael Pontillo, Thinks of the Essence Aire Diffuser

When the Editor of Holistically Haute, Rachael Pontillo, wanted to do a review of our best selling aromatherapy diffuser, the Essence Aire Diffuser, we were thrilled! What would be better than having a professional aesthetician tell us her true thoughts on our product and if she felt like it was really worth the time and money.

Well, after a couple weeks of taking it home and using it, the results were as expected… SHE LOVED IT! and had a few pretty incredible things to say about it too!

Read the Entire Review at http://holisticallyhaute.blogspot.com/2011/05/product-spotlight-essenceaire-diffuser.html

Or Read on Below to see what she thinks:

By Holistically Haute Writer, Rachel Pontillo

Product Spotlight: EssenceAire Diffuser from TEI Spa

 
 

One of the reasons many women, and an increasing number of men love a day at the spa is because of the much needed feeling of relaxation it provides. This relaxing atmosphere can be achieved in many ways, through soft music, dimmed lighting, aromatherapy, and hydrotherapy.

What are aromatherapy and hydrotherapy?

Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes the natural essential oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots, and other parts of certain plants to enhance psychological and physical well-being. Each essential oil has specific purposes and is used to treat various conditions. These oils can be used in many ways:

• They can be mixed with a carrier, base, or existing product to for therapeutic purposes depending on the properties of the essential oil
• They can be inhaled on their own for temporary relief of symptoms, stress, or bad moods
• They can enhance hydrotherapy treatments by adding aromatic as well as topical therapeutic benefits
Hydrotherapy uses water in its various states (ice, steam, liquid) at different temperatures to treat various physiological as well as mental conditions. Some examples are:
• Soaking in a hot bath infused with essential oils, muds, or salts to relieve sore muscles
• Using a humidifier in dry rooms or taking a steam shower to relieve respiratory symptoms
• Using hot or cold compresses to relieve pain and inflammation

Combining aromatherapy and hydrotherapy


It is very common in alternative medicine, as well as in spa treatments to combine aromatherapy and hydrotherapy. Often, essential oils are added to therapeutic soaks, mineral body wraps, and steam treatments during facials. Each therapy enhances the effects of the other.

Two of the most commonly used essential oils are lavender and eucalyptus.

Lavender is has positive effects on the mind as well as the physical body. Its scent is relaxing, soothing, mildly sedative, and considered to be pleasant to most people. For these reasons, it has been used to treat conditions such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia. Lavender also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It is generally well tolerated and non-allergenic, with no side effects. For this reason, it can be used (when mixed with a carrier oil or base) to soothe minor wounds, rashes, and other and skin irritations. In the spa or holistic wellness center, it is not only used aromatherapeutically to promote relaxation, but can also be misted or applied onto the skin to treat skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema/dermatitis, and psoriasis.

Eucalyptus, on the other hand, is antispasmodic, stimulating, and is an effective antiseptic and expectorant. It has many medical and therapeutic uses, and is  used often in aromatherapy and hydrotherapy (steam) spa and wellness treatments to energize and stimulate the mood, as well as to treat respiratory conditions.

Bringing the spa home

I received a gift of an EssenceAire Diffuser from TEI Spa Essentials.

This unique and elegant electrical diffuser offers a misting technology through the vibration of the water and ultrasonic waves that oxygenate and purify the air in whatever room you use it. You can use it for that reason alone, but you also have the option to add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a customized aromatherapy/hydrotherapy treatment.
I was sitting at my computer feeling stressed about an upcoming deadline. It got to the point that my mind began to wander and I could not focus on the task at hand. Instead, I began to think about what to cook for dinner, what to write for my next blog post, getting the car inspected, etc. just to avoid the stress of completing my deadline. I decided to try some lavender essential oil in my diffuser. I added just a few drops, and set the timer to 30 minutes, and it immediately started working. And I have to admit…I began to relax and feel better and was able to concentrate on my deadline.

What makes the EssenceAire Diffuser different from others?

My favorite feature, and what is most unique about the EssenceAire Diffuser is that I was able to control the strength of the fragrance. There is nothing more annoying than turning on a typical diffuser or lighting a heavily-scented candle or traditional oil burner and being overcome with the fragrance to the point that you have to leave the room. Plus, I was able to control the length of time the fragrance stayed in the air. You can set the diffuser to run straight for 30 minutes, then shut off automatically; or you can set it to come on for 15 seconds, then go off for 30 seconds. Once it stops running, the fragrance quickly dissipates, unlike those stinky candles and artificial air fresheners.


I have to admit, I have tried a “poor man’s” version of this…adding drops of essential oil to a regular humidifier. And of course, I ended up clogging and breaking the humidifier. Well this particular diffuser uses disposable cups to hold and separate the oils from the interior of the diffuser to avoid clogging the machine. You choose how much or how little aroma you want by adding more or fewer drops of the essential oil. Plus, unlike typical humidifiers, it has the ultrasonic action which provides cleaner, more oxygenated air.

Bringing the spa anywhere…

I am lucky enough to work from home, but I think the EssenceAire Diffuser is something people should use in their offices as well. Many office buildings have high levels of indoor air pollution which can lead to health problems. The air purifying feature of the EssenceAire could help improve the quality air you breathe at work. Adding certain essential oils to the cup could also help you stay focused, reduce stress, and keep your mood positive.

The EssenceAire Diffuser comes in two sizes, a large and a small. The small one is small enough to fit onto any crowded desk or bookshelf, and is powerful enough to get the job done. The fact that the fragrance fades quickly once you shut it off is great for the office as well, in case someone drops in who doesn’t like the scent.

Whether you need to de-stress after a meeting at the office, or just want help getting to sleep at home, the EssenceAire Diffuser allows you to experience the many positive health benefits of aromatherapy and hydrotherapy on your terms.

About Small World Beauty

Smallworld Beauty was founded to inspire and motivate individuals to live a healthier life. They strive to create the best products to help make anyones weight loss journey sweet and simple.

History

After years of being overweight, lacking self-confidence and a passion for life, founder and CEO, Ghada Abuhakmeh, was determined to make a change. She dedicated herself to seeking out the most effective ways to optimize her metabolism, health and mental well-being.

Ghada joined online weight loss communities for support, joined a gym to boost her weight loss, and gave her kitchen a total makeover, eliminating all junk food. Within months, her body began to transform. Acknowledging that it took years to pack on the weight, she remained patient and persistent. The side effects of this new “diet” were too good not to implement for life. Looking slimmer was great, but feeling amazing was priceless.

In 2009, Smallworld Beauty collaborated with experienced chemists to formulate effective supplements to kick start weight loss and boost overall health. Understanding how torturous a diet can be, Ghada wanted to create products that would make achieving weight loss sweet and simple.

ULTRA CLEANSE MY SKIN LOOKS GREAT!
Holly Conmay – 8/14/2010
I have only used the brush 2x & my skin looks great thus far. Because I have not used for a full 30 days I only gave 4 stars, but I will come back & rereview. Only feedback I could give, is that-the directions are slightly lacking. For instance, how often & how long I would use each time. As well as the buffer- it says to dip in preferred product. I am unsure what product I would use for this.
holly n conmay simi valley, ca


ULTRA CLEANSE I love this tool!
Joanne Gedeon Union, NJ – 4/22/2010
I love that this tool is cheap yet does a great job at exfoliating my skin. The brushes aren’t too rough or too soft, so the face brush is perfect cleansing and exfoliating. I also noticed that my face took moisturizer pretty well after using the brush. The body brush works just as well, and sloughs away dead skin with perfection.

The Best in At Home Hair Care! Learn everything You NEED to Know!!

Today the TEI Spa professionals want to share with you a collection of the best at home Hair Remedies…

Hair is known to be a barometer that measures ones health. The types of hair that grow on your head may differ from person to person, but anyone who takes care of their body by eating healthy, exercising and get adequate sleep should have a pretty nice head of hair

There are three main types of hair that grow on the scalp: Dry Hair, Oily Hair, and Normal Hair.

Dry Hair:

Dry hair is a very common issue in women. Dry hair may not only look dull and lack shine but is also difficult to control. In addition, dry hair may result in lots of dry and split ends, which are best decreased by consistent haircuts. These thin, rough and brittle strands need extra care and nourishment. Below are some of our top Home Remedies for Dry Hair:

  1. Add 2 tablespoons of gram flower to a cup of coconut milk add two tablespoons of gram flour. Apply on the scalp and massage gently. Rinse the hair after five minutes. Use this method once a week. This is very good and effective home remedy for dry hair.
  2. Make a conditioner by mixing one tablespoon of castor oil, one tablespoon of glycerin, a teaspoon of cider vinegar, a teaspoon of protein to a tablespoon of mild herbal shampoo. Apply it on scalp and leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse the hair.
  3. Massage the scalp with warm almond or olive oil. Leave on 5 minutes and rinse.
  4.  Add a teaspoon of lavender oil to coconut oil and heat until warm. Massage the scalp at night and shampoo the hair next morning. Follow this procedure twice a week for soft and shiny hair. This is very useful.
  5. And don’t forget the importance of diet health. A diet rich in zinc is suggested as studies have shown that the cause of dry hair is the deficiency of mineral zinc.

 Oily Hair:

The excess secretion of oil by the oil glands of the scalp makes the hair oily. Although hair looks good after shampooing, oil does add up after 1-2 days giving a dirty and sticky appearance. Oily hair is also more susceptible to dirt and dust. Below are some of our top Home Remedies for Oily Hair:

  1. The best way to deal with oily hair is frequent washing with mild shampoo.
  2. Applying astringent to the scalp will absorb the excess oil from the hair.
  3. Mix one teaspoon of Aloe Vera gel and one tablespoon of lemon juice with one-fourth of shampoo and use the mixture to rinse the hair regularly.
  4. Boil two tablespoons of mint in one and a half glass of water for 20 minutes. Strain the mixture and mix it with the regular used shampoo. Using this mixture on alternative days will absorb the excess oil from the scalp.
  5. Apply a puree of carrots for 15 minutes and rinse the hair.

Normal hair

Normal hair can be managed easily and does not need much care. A well-balanced and healthy diet will provide ultimate results for those with normal hair.                                            

Home Remedies for Shiny & Radiant Hair:

  1. Apply a cucumber puree for 15 minutes before washing hair. This will provide shine and radiance to the hair.                         
  2. Soak one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds overnight, next morning grind the seeds and apply on the hair, rinse the hair with water after one hour and shampoo next day. It will make the hair glow and also one of the effective home remedies for normal hair.
  3. Periodically washing the hair with white vinegar gives a healthy look to the hair.
  4. Drinking one cup of lettuce and spinach juice in combination is highly beneficial.

 

Other Home Remedies for Gorgeous, Lustrous and Radiant Hair:

  1. Combine two egg-yolks with two spoonfuls of odorless linseed oil and two spoonfuls of rum. Soak the hair and scalp. Keep on for one hour and rinse off with warm water.
  2. Beat two egg yolks in a glass of hot water. Soak hair and scalp. Keep on for one hour. Rinse off with warm water.                                           

The Perfect At Home Hair Conditioner:

Mix together 1 egg, 2 tablespoons castor oil, 1 teaspoon vinegar and 1 teaspoon glycerin. Beat constantly and massage on scalp. Wash your hair after 20 minutes.

We hope you find these TEI Spa Professional At home Hair Care remedies are helpful and easy to do at home! Check back daily for more at home skin care and hair care tips!

Get Gorgeous Skin… AT HOME!! Simple and Cheap Skin Care!

 

                                     

 

Sometimes money is short and just like anyone else you still want that gorgeous radiant skin!

Today the TEI Spa professionals are going to tell you all about the benefits that your produce drawer can give you and your skin, and all in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Learn which fruits and veggies are best for your skin and learn how to take care of yourself with top to toe pampering all from the comfort of your own bathroom.

We all know that an apple a day may keep the doctor away, but today were going to show you how an apple, cucumber or virtually any other fruit or veggie can keep the doctor and DERMATOLOGIST away too! The nutrients found in our favorite fruits and vegetables are not only good enough for your health but also good for your skin and hair.

Benefits of Using Produce on Skin: Rather than irritating and overdrying the skin, Fruit may soften and deeply cleanse the skin.

A Few Luscious Treatments You Must Try! 

Homemade Skin Toner: Whip up a toner by mixing 1/4 cup no-sugar-added fresh apple juice (fresh pear juice works equally well) and 4 tablespoons witch hazel. Refrigerate in an air-tight container, and apply with a cotton ball.

Deep Cleansing Mask:  Carrots, which are rich in Vitamin A have the incredible benefits of helping maintain glowing, healthy skin. Mix 2 tablespoons each of fresh carrot juice and white clay (sold at natural-food stores or the health-food section of some supermarkets). Then spread the smooth paste on your face; let rest for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water, followed by a splash of cold.

Deep Conditioning Treatment: Those with dry, frizzy hair have been using mayonaisse for years now. But we have an even better suggestion: Avacados. By simply blending one whole avacado and 2 tbs of mayonnaise or some mashed ripe banana, you can give your hair the amazing conditioning treatment it needs. Massage into clean, dry hair and cover with shower cap. Wash with warm water and a light shampoo after about 10 to 20 minutes depending on hair texture.

Condition Cuticles: Use none other than Olive Oil to condition cuticles in between visits the the nail salon. We recommend a drop or two of olive oil on each nail and then using your fingers to gently push back the cuticle skin. Overtime this has the effect of lengthening the nail bed, for longer looking, more beautiful nails.

Whiten teeth: Strawberries are the newest teeth whiten secret hitting men and women all overRich in salicylic acid, Strawberries are incredibly easy-to-use tooth-whiteners. Just pop a few into your diet for gorgeous, whitened teeth and as a delicious snack

Oily Skin: Got Oily, Acneic Prone Skin? Or just have a shiny to your T zone that you want to rid of? Try Strawberries. These pretty red berries are a great astringent on their own. If you have oily skin, cut a strawberry in half, rub it gently on your face and rinse; if your skin is more sensitive, mash with a fork, apply for a minute or so and rinse.

Freshening Facial: My personal favorite at home treatment can be used in 2 incredibly refreshing ways:

1. Take 1 large cucumber and grate it into finely cut pieces. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. On a dry, clean face, place the cucumbers on your face, (a slight tingling sensation will occurr) and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes. This will give your face the most incredible, clean and fresh feeling.

2. Using Plain NonFat Yogurt. I like to use about a scoop of Yogurt on my face when I feel like my skin needs a fresh, at home facial. it is the perfect way to keep up with my beauty regimen when I dont have time to get out of the house. place a layer of yogurt all over the face. Let dry 5 -10 minutes. Rinse with warm water. I prefer doing this right before a shower as it does have the tendency to get a little messy.

Oily Skin & Acne: Get gorgeous and ready for the beach with pineapples. Use this tropical fruit to cleanse and freshen your skin, and this fix is perfect for those with oily skin or acne. Mix 1 cup of fresh pineapple juice (or purée a pineapple in a food processor until smooth) with 2 cups seltzer or sparkling mineral water. Place in a spray bottle and spritz on post-shower.
