Happy Feet

v2 Happy Feet blog heading

We often hear the phrase ‘I’ve been on my feet all day’. This can be true for many of us, be it because of work, chasing after children all day, running errands or countless other day-to-day activities that can all take their toll on our feet.

Women in particular can be guilty of choosing fashion over function or comfort when it comes to footwear. Your feet take the weight of your whole body, so foot problems can quickly lead to discomfort and affect the way you walk. This can in turn cause knee, hip and back pain.

Research from The College of Podiatry shows that nine in 10 of us experience some sort of foot problem, with one in five admitting to suffering with foot pain often or constantly. Podiatrist Lorraine Jones says: “What this research shows is that a huge amount of people are willing to put up with sore, aching and painful feet.

She adds: “Your feet shouldn’t hurt on a daily basis. If you are experiencing discomfort it is usually because you aren’t wearing the right footwear. “[1]

There are certain things that we can do at home to make a real difference to our feet. Keeping feet clean and applying moisturiser morning and evening, may help keep feet soft and prevent a build up of hard skin. True elements® Hand & Foot Cream may help to soothe dry hands and feet, protecting and nourishing straight after application. It contains Shea butter, which is known to nourish skin and the seaweed extract chondrus, which has moisturisation properties.

As well as keeping hands and feet moisturised, wearing comfortable, well fitting shoes as often as possible can help relieve aching feet. Kenko mSteps® and Kenko mStrides® slip into your shoes and utilises Nikken’s DynaFlux® Magnetic Technology. Kenko mSteps® feature relaxing massage nodes on one side, inspired by reflexology practices, they may provide a massage effect that could help the whole body feel good from the feet upwards.

TRUE elements® Hand and Foot Cream (#2053) is currently on offer saving 50% until 31st August.

Top tips for summer skin hydration

Blog Skin Hydration -July 2017 ENG

Dry skin is often associated with the dry winter weather but it’s not unusual to notice dry skin in the summer as well. Follow our top tips – they may help to keep your skin hydrated this summer.

Step 1 – Moisturise your skin straight after a bath or shower, lightly pat your body and apply a light and non-greasy moisturiser such as TRUE elements® Moisturising Body Lotion. It is a light, hydrating, mineral rich daily moisturiser. Applying to slightly damp skin may help your skin absorb products more easily than applying them on to dry skin and may help lock in moisture.

Step 2 – Get your feet summer ready by applying TRUE elements® Hand and Foot Cream. Rich in shea butter, this cream provides additional moisture to hands, feet and nails. Apply throughout the day and last thing at night to let that moisture penetrate whilst you sleep.

Step 3 – Once a week, treat your face to an extra moisture boost. TRUE elements® Nutritional Mask will help rehydrate summer skin. This creamy moisturising mask is rich in minerals and is a perfect treat for your face.

Step 4 – Fluid Hydration- This is the most obvious but often-neglected skincare tip during summer… drink water!

For fresh, spring-like water try the PiMAG Waterfall® Gravity Water System. Add cucumber slices, watermelon or orange segments to your glass to enhance the flavour.

Step 5 – SAVE 50%

Get summer ready with True Elements

Summer skin with True ElementsSummer is officially on the horizon, we are already getting glimmers of the hot days we hope will come. In summer it can be so easy to forget about looking after our skin, we all know we need to wear sun cream on hot days, but we often neglect other skincare. Keeping a summer skin care regime will keep you looking fresh faced and beautiful all summer long. Skincare doesn’t need to be complicated, it shouldn’t need to take hours out of your day and hundreds of products and gadgets. We are giving our top simple tips to getting the perfect summer skin this year.

Hydrate- Keeping hydrated in the best thing you can do for your skin, it keeps skin looking plump and dewy and prevents it from drying out, causing flaky and cracked skin.

Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise-  Three essential steps that everyone should include into their routine morning and night. It takes a matter of minutes but can make the world of difference in your skins appearance. Cleanse your skin to remove all traces of makeup and dirt, tone to hep freshen the skin and tighten pores and moisturise to give an even, dewy complexion.

Protect from the sun- It can be easy to get carried away being in the sun, ever pop out just to tidy the garden and find yourself in midday heat for hours? Make sure whenever you are going to be exposed to the sun for long periods of time ensure you are using sunscreen with a high SPF. This will protect your skin from harmful UVB rays, keeping you from getting sunburnt and protecting your skin cells from lasting damage.

Dare to Bare- Challenge yourself to have at least one day a week without makeup, this allows your skin a chance to breathe, without being clogged with makeup and other impurities.

Stay clear of chemicals-  Many products today are full of harmful chemicals, any chemicals you apply to your skin will then be transferred into your blood and body, stay as natural and pure as possible.  Nikken’s True Elements are organic and use natural red, brown and green seaweed, to give you the best quality skincare possible.

Look radiant this summer by making only a few simple adjustments to your skin care routine. Don’t forget from 9th-22nd June 2014 any orders with Nikken over 500PV receive a FREE True Elements Shower Gel and Body Lotion.

Earth Day 2013 – What will you do to save the Planet?

Earth Day is celebrated annually, raising awareness of issues that are causing our climate to deteriorate at an astonishing pace.

Together we have the collective power to slow down climate change, even if this means simply turning off a power switch.

Today is the 43rd Earth Day, in which the world comes together to highlight and showcase concerns, issues and solutions to save our planet. This year, the theme is ‘The Face of Climate Change’

03A25448Our climate is changing rapidly, and everyone and everything is affected one way or another. Stories which are becoming more and more common include families having to relocate due to rising sea levels, fishermen who go home with no catch, families becoming homeless due to extreme weathers, dirty water, poor harvests, the list goes on.

Not only are we humans affected but other species too but animals are losing their homes too; Polar bears in the arctic, whales in the warming seas, or endangered species in the Amazon.

‘The Face of Climate Change’

The Face of Climate Change is a global campaign where images are 02C90719collected and displayed around the world. These images not only show the direct impact of global warming, but also images of those who are trying to make a difference. Forming a collage of hundreds of thousands will really put in to prospective what we are doing to the earth and how important it is to stop this.

A few events going on around the world include:

  • Denmark where Runners, Walkers, Bikers and Skaters will use their country as a canvas to spell CO2 with GPS Systems.
  • Argentina will be cleaning beaches and planting Evergreen and Shrubs to prevent water and wind erosion.
  • India are distributing saplings to students and educating the nations about the effects of climate change.
  • Italy is holding an Earth Day Festival with live music, food, awards and speakers, as is California – home of Nikken Inc. headquarters.
  • South Korea will be having an Eco-style Flash Mob ‘Gangnam Style’ as well as a walkathon and exhibition.

These are just some of the many events taking place across the globe to raise the awareness of climate change. Simply to make the world a greener place.

‘A Billion Acts of Green’

Earth day also has ‘A Billion acts of Green’ where they encourage the people of the world to make small changes, which collectively will have a massive impact on Climate Change.

Here are a few simple super powers that you can have to help save the world!

  • Saving Energy
    • Turn off Switches and Lights
    • Insulate your Homes
    • Use Energy Saving Appliances.
  • Save Water
    • Have Showers rather than Baths
    • Water your garden when the day is at its coolest, and try use rain water
    • Don’t leave the tap running while you brush your teeth.
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
    • Only buy what you need.
    • Try going for products with less packaging.
    • Donate unwanted clothing, and appliances, and items to charity.
    • Reuse tubs, and bottles.
    • Recycle as much as possible; paper, cans, plastics, metals etc.

‘A World of Wellness’

Here at Nikken, we have a vision of ‘an Earth so clean’ – a world of wellness. We want to overcome the black cloud of manmade pollution that taints the earth.

In order to help reach this aim, we do a number of things; Not only recycling our used materials, but ensuring that we use recycled materials within the office too.

Our PiMag products are eco-friendly as it needs no power source to give you filtered water. Not only that, but it also saves hundreds of plastic bottles being dumped on landfill sites.

The KenkoAir purifier not only gives you fresh, spring, clean air indoors, but it doesn’t release those toxic gases in to the ozone either.

The True Elements skincare range takes advantage of natural resources we have available to use, but we ensure that they are handled ethically and Seaweed is obtained from a sustainable source.

What will you do to save the Planet?

Together we can ‘activate individuals and organisation to strengthen the collective fight against man’s exploitive relationship with the planet.’

Happy Earth Day!
