My life as a Little Mermaid

Leave a Comment
Once upon a time there was a little girl who loves swimming and always dreamed to be a Mermaid... until the day she discovered Fin Fun Mermaid.
Diary of my life as a real little mermaid:
When I wore the mermaid tail for the first time, it was magical and I told my mom that this was a dream come true!
Ever since then, I am just looking for any opportunity to wear my Fin Fun Mermaid Tails, whether it is at the pool, or at the beach. The Neoprene Monofin is a little hard to slid in, and needed the help of my mom. But once I have the Tail and Fin on, the Mermaid Tail is very comfortable and fun to swim with. It is definitely Fin Fun!

* Going to swim practice with Fin Fun Mermaid leggings & T-shirt.

Fin Fun clothing have great designs, are very light and of high quality.

*Relaxing in the ocean with my Fin Fun Mermaid wearable tails and bikini.

As a modern Mermaid, I also had fun taking selfie in the Ocean.... Thanks to Proshot case for keeping my iphoneX functional in the water.

Not only I love Fin Fun wearable tails, but I also adore their cute bikinis. Their size 8 fits me perfectly!

If you are a little swimmer like me or know a girl who dreams to become a mermaid, visit FinFun Mermaid and shop for their mermaid tails and clothing, they are such great gifts for the Holiday Season.

Raising awareness in young girls and women about Truth behind Cold Sores!

Leave a Comment
According to the World Health Organzation (WHO),  3.7 billion individuals under the age of 50 (or 67% of the population worldwide) are suffering from cold sores, and yet cold sores are often a taboo subject matter.
By educating and empowering Young Girls and  Women with the Truth behind Cold Sores, I believe that we can eliminate the stigma attached to getting the virus.
And if you have or has had a cold sore, you are actually among the majority of people in the U.S. and worldwide, not the minority!

What is a cold sore or a fever blister?

A cold sore oral is a common infection of the mouth area that is caused by virus called herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1).

Who get cold sores?
According to the National Institutes of Health, 50 to 80% of U.S. adults have oral herpes, and about 90% of adults have been exposed to the virus by age 50.
Most people get cold sores during infancy and childhood, and once an individual is infected, he/she will have herpes simplex virus for the rest of his or her life. Most of the time, the virus lies inactive in a group of nerve cells. Some people never develop any symptoms from the HSV-1 virus, but others have periodic outbreaks with symptoms.

What are the symptoms?

The initial infection also called the primary infection is usually the worst. It may cause severe, flu-like symptoms and headache, with cold sores occurring on and around the lips and throughout the mouth. However, some people have no symptoms at all.
The recurring infections are usually milder, and the cold sores usually erupt on the edges of the lips. Some people never have any additional outbreaks beyond the initial infection.

Most common signs and symptoms of a recurring cold sore are:
Itching, tingling in the area where the cold sore will erupt
Initial redness, swelling, heat/pain.
Fluid-filled blisters may appear on the lips or under the nose a couple of days following the initial signs described above. Subsequently, the fluid will leak and the blisters become sores.
!!!The fluid and blisters are highly contagious.!!!
After about 4 to 6 days, the sores will start to crust over and heal.

What can trigger the recurrence of cold sores?
Several factors may cause oral herpes to recur. These include:
- Emotional stress
- Fatigue
- Menstruation
- Excessive sunlight or cold weather
- Dental Trauma
- Low Immune System

Recurrent outbreaks tend to be more common in the first year after the initial episode, and then lessen as the body builds antibodies against the HSV-1 virus

How to prevent cold sores?
The best method of prevention is to avoid physical contact with a person who is showing signs of  an outbreak, since oral herpes spreads through direct and physical contact such as kissing, skin on skin interaction, sharing drinks, sharing lip balms.

How to treat cold sores?
Currently, there is no cure for cold sores but you can treat the symptoms by following these simples steps:
 -Keeping the infected area clean and dry.
 -Moisturizing helps to heal the cold sore faster .
 -Using an over-the-counter topical anesthetics and/or anti-inflammatory agents helps alleviate cold     sore pain and itching.

Aubio is an effective over-the-counter gel that provides fast healing relief from pain and discomfort associated with cold sores/fever blisters. 
Aubio's unique formulation combines a protectant (Allantoin) and a local anesthetic (Lidocaine HCl).
Aubio can be easily found at Rite Aid, Bed Bath and Beyond, Supervalu and other independent pharmacies and fine retailers.
When it comes to relieving cold sores symptoms, it's all about timing and it is very important to act during the very first sign of a cold sore. So my advice is to keep Aubio with you at all times (e.g. in your purse, sport bag, car, work office...) and apply it as soon as you feel a tingling or burning sensation on your lips.

Your health care provider may also recommend prescription medications based on your age and overall health, frequency of the recurrent outbreaks, tolerance for specific medicines (e.g. allergy to lidocaine). These include:
 - Applying antiviral topical ointments.
 - Taking antiviral oral medications.

Time to relax with Rain Bath

Leave a Comment
I am thankful to Neutrogena for sending me these awesome Rain Bath products!

As you know, I am a swimmer and an actress, and keeping my skin clean and smooth is very important.

Last week, we just switched the time back, which means the days are shorter. Now when I go to the pool for swim practice, it is already nighttime. And when I get out of the water, it is much cooler than in the summer.
So my favorite thing to do, when I get home after swim practice, is to relax in a warm bath. I can't say enough about the Neutrogena Rainbath shower and bath gel. My skin feels so smooth and soft after the bath 🛁! And these products smell so good. My favorite scent is the pear & green tea.
My mom loves to use the Pomegranate one during her morning shower. She feels rejuvenate with it, exactly what she needs to get ready for her day at work.
It is so great that my mom and I can share these products as they are FREE of Paraben, Lanolin, Gluten, Soy, and Propylene Glycol.
I am just saying that these bath and shower gels, are Tween and sensitive skin approved!

If you too would like to #RelaxwithRainbath, head to the Walgreens and get some some for yourself!
