News - Make the most of Valentine's Day!

By Debbie Paddington DipION

As Valentine’s Day approaches, you may be wondering what to buy or do for you or your partner to express your affection and enjoy a day to remember.  Try the tips below to create a healthy, indulgent, but above all, romantic Valentine’s Day and the rest will follow…

Stress

Worrying about your job, money and the kids can leave you stressed out, uptight and exhausted, hardly the right frame of mind for a romantic evening. The amino acid theanine helps the production of alpha brain waves, which are associated with a state of alert relaxation. B vitamins, magnesium, lemon balm and taurine also have a relaxing effect and support healthy adrenal function. A nerve support formula may be useful.

Soak your cares away

Help to ease the stresses and tensions of the day by relaxing in a warm bath for one (or two), and add some ancient sea minerals to help nourish, soothe and refresh tired and aching muscles. Why not enjoy a glass of champagne as you unwind, for pure indulgence.

Pamper yourself

After a relaxing bath, treat yourself to a skin-enhancing beauty regime, which will help you feel fantastic and make your skin glow. Deep cleansing with Energys Resonance Gentle Exfoliant removes dead skin, leaving your face and body feeling silky smooth. Applying Energys Resonance Energy Gel revitalises and refreshes the skin and is an ideal ‘pick-me-up’. A luxurious Energys Resonance moisturiser, such as Ultra Regeneration Hydrating Cream will nourish and protect the skin. Before you go out, treat yourself to Energys Resonance Energising Body Splash, a wonderfully fragrant toning fluid that can be applied to the body and face to re-energise and balance.

Massage

Using the Energys Resonance Deeply Restoring Massage Oil to give your partner a massage is not only a delicious way to create intimacy and relaxation; it also helps support healthy circulation and immunity. Gentle touch also helps to stimulate the love hormone oxytocin.

Intimacy

According to Patient UK, about half of men aged between 40 and 70 have erectile dysfunction, an often embarrassing condition that means that you cannot get and/or maintain an erection. Sufficient blood flow is important for arousal in both men and women. The amino acid arginine, found in meat, poultry, fish and nuts, helps with production of nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide helps to improve blood flow in the body by encouraging blood vessels to relax. Studies have shown that by improving blood flow to the sexual organs, there is increased arousal.

For women, especially around the time of the menopause, vaginal dryness can be an issue. Lubricant gels containing aloe vera, marigold and comfrey can help to moisturise, soften and nourish dry, sensitive vaginal skin, enhancing comfort.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
