Wine Gummy Hearts – the Health & Beauty Benefits!

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Diet, hair loss, Health and Wellness, Nutrition, Publications, thinning hair, Tips, Uncategorized, Wellness

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon

While I did not invent these amazing snacks – the discovery of them and sharing some of the health and beauty benefits of them could not be kept a secret!

Most know the overall general health benefits of red wine but do you know the benefits of drinking red wine for your hair? Red wine helps increase the blood flow to the scalp which helps to eliminate the occurrence of dandruff. It contains Resveratrol which has the capability to reduce inflammation, thereby reducing hair loss and promoting hair growth. The bioflavonoids help keratin growth and the antioxidant properties of red wine make it an ideal choice for rejuvenating and repairing damaged hair.

Gelatin is largely composed of the amino acids, glycine and proline, which many people don’t consume in adequate amounts as they are found in the bones, fibrous tissues and organs of animals and as a population, we don’t consume these parts as much anymore. These amino acids are needed not only for proper skin, hair and nail growth, but for optimal immune function and weight regulation. Other benefits of gelatin are it supports skin, hair and nail growth; it is good for joints and can help joint recovery.  It can improve digestion since it naturally binds to water and helps food move more easily though the digestive tract and is a source of protein (not a great one) but its specific amino acids can help build muscle.

Now that you know some of these amazing benefits – let’s make Wine Gummies!

Wine Gummy Hearts Recipe!

1 cup wine (red, white or rose)
4 Tbsp gelatin (ex: Knox)
1/2 tsp stevia / sweetener (optional)
2 -4 Tbsp maple syrup

Note: The amount of maple syrup you use will depend on (1) how dry your wine is and (2) how sweet you want your gummies! You’ll have to taste it as you go and add more as needed.

In a saucepan, warm the wine on low heat. It is recommended to use a thermometer to make sure it does not go much above 90 degrees. Wine boils at 159 degrees Fahrenheit so you definitely wanted to keep it well below that so the alcohol wouldn’t burn off.

Add the gelatin one Tbsp at a time, and stir very well before adding more. After the gelatin has completely dissolved, add the other ingredients. Taste the mixture after adding each one – you’ll have to use your taste buds as a gauge for how much sweetener to add. Keep in mind that the more sweeteners you add, the less you’ll taste the flavor of the wine! These should be a little less sweet than a regular gummy bear … Sweeter gummies get eaten faster, and portion control is recommended for these to avoid getting drunk!

Once your mixture is ready, either use a spoon to fill a mold or pour the whole batch into a pan (for square cut gummies). It can be done it both ways and the hearts are pretty especially for Valentine’s Day!

Put them in the fridge to set. You don’t have to do this, but it speeds up the process. They’ll be the texture of Jello jigglers pretty quickly or if you want them to become the texture of gummy bears, let them chill for 2-3 hours. You can keep them in the fridge (or not) – they will not un-gel. ENJOY!!!

Before using Gelatin in a recipe or as a supplement, check with your doctor or medical professional, especially if you have a medical condition. People with liver or kidney disease should not add gelatin or any other amino acid supplement without first consulting their physician. Getting too much of any one amino acid can throw the citric acid cycle out of balance, which can make the liver and kidneys work harder to eliminate toxins. ~ Denise Zingale Travis, NGA Certified Personal Trainer

Lavender Lemonade for Help with Headaches, Anxiety, PMS & Menopause

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Diet, Health and Wellness, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By, Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

The smell of lavender. Calming, soothing and beautifully fragrant. This is a popular flower and essential oil that is commonly found in most households. Diffusing lavender in the evening is a perfect way to unwind from a busy day, and especially before bed, can have an overall calming effect, relieve nervous tension and can help aid in sleep.

Lavender is particularly great for women who are suffering from PMS or going through menopause. The calming scent of lavender helps to support the nervous system which can help relieve tension, stress or anxiety to help minimize hair loss. It also has estrogenic properties, which can support healing from low estrogen, support a good nights rest or bring balance during menopause. Lavender also has a positive effect in relieving headaches, migraines, and depression.

You can also gain the benefits of lavender by making this delicious lavender infused lemonade. Sip on this herbal elixir all day and feel the calming benefits this amazing herb has to offer.

Ingredients:
• 1 liter fresh spring water

Foods that can help you stay hydrated

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Diet, Health and Wellness, News, Nutrition, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized, Wellness

Learn how you can use a fork or spoon to help get the fluid you need on hot summer days
By: Denise Zingale Travis, CPT / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Think hydration – and you probably think water, the body’s essential fluid. But did you know you can eat your H2O too? That’s when you choose foods that are high in water content. Some varieties of fruit and veggies are more than 85 percent water. On hot summer days, these foods, along with other fluids can help you stay hydrated. And there’s a bonus – Water-rich fruits and veggies can also help replace key minerals (electrolytes) which your body sheds when you sweat.

Enjoy a thirst-quenching menu ~ When the temperature rises, make a splash in your daily diet with these tasty ideas:

Fruit & veggie salad

Super salads ~ Watermelon, oranges, tomatoes, cantaloupe, berries, celery and cucumbers salads are all flush with fluid. These water-rich foods make great low-calorie snacks too!

 

berry smoothie pictureBerry-delicious smoothies. Add berries — fresh or frozen — to low-fat milk, almond or coconut milk. For healthy smoothie recipe ideas: https://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_smoothie_recipes

 

 

Summer salsa saladSummer salsas. These can be made from vegetables, fruits or a combination of both. Enjoy your favorite variety as a snack — dip into it with cut-up veggies or whole-grain pita chips. Or top grilled fish or chicken with it. Have a sweet tooth? Give orange or pineapple salsa a try.

 

 

Chilled soups ~ You can serve these as a light meal – or as an appetizer or dessert. Here are three cool and soothing options:

gazpacho soup pictureGazpacho. A summertime favorite that’s typically rich in tomatoes, cucumber, onion, bell pepper and garlic.

 

vichyssoise soup imageVichyssoise. This creamy French classic is made with pureed potatoes and leeks. To keep it on the healthful side, use low-fat, low-sodium chicken broth. For an even creamier soup, stir in a little plain low-fat yogurt or low-fat sour cream.

 

Fruit Soup ImageFruit soups. Strawberries, raspberries and cantaloupe puree nicely.

 

 

frozen grapes & berries imageFrozen nibbles. Freeze grapes or berries. Grab them for a quick and cold snack.

 

 

More hints on hydration ~
Perhaps you’re wondering, How much water do I need? Maybe you’ve heard it should be eight glasses a day. Actually, there’s no set amount that’s right for everyone.* Staying hydrated is important though so don’t wait until you are thirsty. Carry a refillable water bottle with you and sip from it throughout the day. (Be sure to wash your water bottle daily.)

Bored with the same old water supply? Give it a twist with one of these infused waters you can make at home.

Remember, heat can be a hazard
To learn more about safety in hot weather, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at cdc.gov. You can also check the weather and heat index in your area and see heat advisories at www.weather.gov. In hot weather, do keep an especially close eye on older people, people with health conditions and young children and make sure they stay hydrated. They’re at the highest risk of heat-related illness.

What 9 Essentials To Do To Help Prevent Your Beauty Routine From Aging You

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Health and Wellness, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-4247 (HAIR)
Owner, Master Hairdresser & Certified Personal Trainer

As we age, our skin, hair, and features change with us – so our beauty routine needs to change as well. Is yours working against you and adding years to your appearance? Here are a some essential changes to help prevent your beauty routine from aging you and maintaining a more youthful look.

50+ woman washing faceCleanser Review

By the time you reach 50, regardless of how your skin once was, it’s time for a cleansing review. You need a product that takes off surface oil, dirt, pollutants and make-up without removing the natural lipids. It should be a cleanser that emulsifies with water to refresh the skin, while leaving valuable moisturizing properties on its surface. This one simple change will improve your skin condition and, with this perfect balance, give you a beautifully hydrated skin even before you apply moisturizer.

 

Vitamin-C serum imageExfoliation

Replace the exfoliating facial scrub. Scrubbing your skin will cause dryness, dullness and irritation. If you want a glowing, hydrated, luminous skin well into mid-life, find something containing alpha and or beta hydroxy acids and use it regularly.

Many skincare brands currently add a very little of these ingredients, but seldom enough. Serum formulations are best. You should see an improvement in the texture of your skin almost immediately.

 

Vitamin-C cream imageTop up your vitamin C. 

Your skin, like every other organ of the body, depends on getting enough vitamin C. And if it is to age well, this essential nutrient is very important.

Topically applied, it is key to producing more collagen, which is responsible for the skin’s strength. (Loss of collagen is one of the reasons for later-life lines and wrinkles.) It’s also one of the most powerful and potent natural antioxidants, absorbed mainly through the fruit and vegetables that we eat.

50+ woman eating a saladIf there’s any shortfall in your diet, your skin will feel the loss; your collagen will decrease and free radicals will wreak havoc. But there are plenty of other reasons for free radicals. Invest in a well-formulated vitamin C serum or cream.  Look for stable, low-water formulations with a pH no higher than 3.5. (Vitamin C is water-soluble so the less water in the formulation the better.) Also, once you’ve opened the container, commit to using it daily.

 

 

50+ woman applying moisturizerFind a very good moisturizer

Our skin changes as we age. By 50, it can lose its ability to hold moisture, thus leading to dryness, dehydration and a loss of elasticity. These symptoms indicate that the skin is lacking in essential fatty acids. However, seeking out the richest, thickest cream you can find is not necessarily the answer. Look for creams with gamma linoleic and linolenic acids. These two essential fatty acids, when topically applied every day, mimic the skin’s natural lipid ceramide barrier and help to restore natural moisture without feeling greasy.

 

Over 50 woman drinking water

Hydrate and plump

The average age of menopause is 51, and with the drop in hormones, skin becomes dryer and brown spots can increase. Deeper folds, including the “smile” lines that run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth, develop as skin loses underlying fat. This loss also “hollows out” the under-eye area.

Drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily and staying hydrated makes sure that your body will be better able to function properly, including maintaining the health and cleanliness of your skin.

 

 
50+ make-up imageGive your makeup a makeover

Make up for older women should serve two purposes. First it should add color to faded skin. Second it should conceal minor flaws and wrinkles as much as possible.

Because our skin becomes thinner and dryer, you need to update your makeup choices. Primer can be your best friend – it evens out wrinkles so they’re less visible. Find a lightweight foundation that won’t cake into lines.

 

 

50+ woman face imageEyes & Brows

Avoid wearing excessive eye makeup, since this can work against you. Instead, enhance your natural eye shape by applying a thin line of eyeliner along top and bottom lash line, keeping it light and soft to avoid harsh lines.

As we age, our eyebrows often become sparser, which can cause us to appear older. Filling in your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil or powder gives the appearance of thicker, fuller eyebrows which can give your face more definition and youthful look.

 

HAIR COLOR! As many of us know, gray hairs start taking over – making our previously luscious locks coarse, drab, and dull, often adding years to our face. Finding a professional hairdresser is a must to review all your hair details; gray percentage, texture change, porosity, skin tone, and more. Only a professional can individually customize hair color just for you and make sure you get gray coverage and the most natural, flattering, youthful look!

photo of woman sleepingFinally ~ Get some shut eye!

Sleep may sound obvious, but many don’t realize how it can take years off your appearance! Lack of sleep can cause thinning hair and hair loss. Red, puffy eyes and emphasize fine lines … just to name a few things. Getting sleep can trigger hormones that help repair your skin and hair!

Best Hairstyles for Women over 50

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, Health and Wellness, News, Perms / Body Waves, Publications, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Majority think the rule for the best haircuts for women over 50 is short. This was correct until the early 20th century, but now, there are no more rules. Let your hair grow or cut it very short; it is now all up to you and working with a creative and experienced hairstylist. One major factor to consider with any style is color (dimensional color preferably) usually within a shade or two of your natural color will help make you look more youthful. Note: I am personally NOT a fan of the current “grey” trend on any age! However, the best haircuts, color & styles for women over 50 are the ones that ultimately make you look and feel your best.
Age will not make any woman to stop wishing to be beautiful and stylish. Even if you are in your 50s, you are still interested in the last trends and styles. When most women get older, their hair does become thinner. This is the reason why many mature women prefer to cut their hair shorter and the medium haircuts for women over 50 with fine hair have become really popular. So to help you decide what you may want or need, I have gathered some haircuts and styles in various hair colors for women over 50, so you can get inspired:
Short and sexy – Some of the haircuts & styles for women over 50 are short; most everybody agrees but this is not a must. These haircuts are very sexy and have a lot of potential. Add asymmetrical layers, bangs, or choppy layers for interest. The pixie haircut has become even more of a favorite haircut for many women over 50 especially with fine hair. These haircuts don’t need much maintenance or time to style; they look great in the morning and can be styled  seductively for evening.

Medium and classic – The layered bob with natural looking dimensional hair color is one of the best and most popular haircut styles for women over 50. Customized layering gives each woman an individual fresh and modern look. It works with many textures of hair, and suits most any face shape from jaw line to the shoulders. It can be styled fun & flirty to classy & elegant. Having a layered bob hairstyle means you will need to take care of your hair maintenance a little more – but this style is worth it!

Long and elegant – There are long haircuts for older women that will make you look really stylish, but you have to pay attention when choosing them. Haircuts & styles for women over 50 with long hair can give you a sophisticated look depending on the length of it. A long-layered or “Shag” haircut looks good on most all face shapes and works on most any hair texture. Adding dimensional highlighting and low-lights to a layered style gives it body, volume and interest. It can be worn down casual and wavy. Body waving your hair can give you a “beach” look or you can blow your hair out straight – but not stick straight (which can be aging!) You will need to take care of your hair more at home using a professional conditioner daily and hair mask every week.

Winter Wellness for your Hair

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Health and Wellness, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Young woman standing in snow, leaning against tree, portrait From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season. Hair typically gets 25 percent dryer during the winter. Even if you live in a moderate climate, you’re still susceptible to hair-raising changes as the seasons pass.

The environment can have some of the most damaging effects on hair in both summer and winter, but in winter it’s often worse because people generally don’t take as many precautions to protect their hair. Sun exposure (which can be as intense on a ski slope as it is on a beach) combined with blustery winter wind as well as snow, rain, and icy cold (which makes hair brittle and dry) can all come together to create some very bad winter hair days.

static-hair-01Even if you spend most of your time indoors, winter is still your hair’s enemy. Indoor heating can be something akin to spending an entire afternoon under a hair dryer. Honestly, it’s not quite as dramatic as the damage would be from that, but it certainly gives you an idea of what indoor heating can do to your hair. No matter what’s causing your winter hair woes, it is a fact the hair tends to become dry faster and have more breakage in the winter.

Here are 5 protective and replenishing steps you can take.

hair-care-photo 1. Make sure you are equipped with a professional, salon quality shampoo and conditioner. The right shampoo and conditioner will help repair, seal and smooth your hair. A power infusion treatment is recommended once to twice a week for sever damaged hair.
2. Avoid over-washing your hair in winter and in the shower. Try to start washing it over the sink or tub with warm to cool water. The pressure of the shower head and the hot water causes the formation of tiny chinks in the surrounding cuticle which adds to the problems of hair dryness and breakage.
3. Towel-dry your hair very gently as aggressive rubbing roughs up the cuticle that can lead to breakage.
4. Professionally prescribed styling products are a must to help protect the hair from thermal styling. “Cocktailing” your products together can help achieve added protection, texture and shine. Direct air from the blow dryer down the hair shaft to encourage the hair to lay flatter.
5. Good nutrition, one that incorporates small portions of all the key food groups such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein sources helps to nourish and protect hair. Taking a quality-grad multivitamin with essential B vitamins (B6, B12, foliate), essential fatty acids and adequate minerals can help dry, weak hair prone to breakage in the winter.

Texture Changes

As your body ages, your hair changes…

August – September 2013 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal, East Edition

ClevelandWomansJournal_Cover_Denise-ZingaleBy Denise Zingale Travis

Hair changes every 5 to 7 years.  As our body ages, we see changes in our hair texture.  The hair of a newborn is very soft & fine.  The diameter of the hair thickens as we enter childhood and early adolescence.  As we age and move into adulthood and older, usually beginning in our 40’s and 50’s, the hair begins to change again, becoming “finer” or “thinner” and/or “wiry” or “frizzy”.  Add to the causes of your hair texture changing, hormonal imbalances, medications, diet, and genetics.
