Home Tips: Dealing with dust mite allergies

House dust mites are very tiny almost invisible to the naked eye. Dust mites are not parasitic, but they have powerful allergens contained in the mites, their cast skins, fecal material and secretions that can cause allergic reactions in asthmatics and others who are allergic to their feces. Their primary food is skin scales (dander) contained in house dust. Since the greatest fallout occurs in areas of human and pet activity, the mites tend to be most numerous in beds, sofas, chairs, and carpeted areas.

Studies show that dust mites may be a factor in 50 to 80 percent of asthmatics, as well as in countless cases of eczema, hay fever and other allergic ailments. In the United Kingdom, one in 10 children and one in 12 adults suffer from asthma (source www.asthma.org.uk) while everyone either knows or is related to someone who suffers from an allergy or eczema.

According to Mayo Clinic, dust mite allergy symptoms caused by inflammation of nasal passages include: sneezing, runny nose, itchy red watery eyes, nasal congestion, itchy nose, roof of mouth or throat, postnatal drip, cough, facial pressure and pain, frequent awakening, swollen, blue-colored skin under your eyes, in a child, frequent upward rubbing of the nose.

Here then are some tips shared by Mayo Clinic to combat this household problem.

a. Use allergen-proof bed covers. Cover your mattress and pillows in dust-proof or allergen-blocking covers.

b. Wash bedding weekly. Wash all sheets, blankets, pillowcases and bedcovers in hot water that is at least 130 F (54.4 C) to kill dust mites and remove allergens.

c. Keep humidity low. Maintain a relative humidity between 30 and 50 percent in your home.

d. Choose bedding wisely. Avoid bedcovers that trap dust easily and are difficult to clean

e. Buy washable stuffed toys. Wash them often in hot water and dry thoroughly. Also, keep stuffed toys off beds.

f. Remove dust. Use a damp or oiled mop or rag rather than dry materials to clean up dust. This prevents dust from becoming airborne and resettling.

g. Cut clutter. If it collects dust, it also collects dust mites. Remove knickknacks, tabletop ornaments, books, magazines and newspapers from your bedroom.

h. Remove carpeting and other dust mite habitats. Carpeting provides a comfortable habitat for dust mites. If possible, replace wall-to-wall bedroom carpeting with tile, wood, linoleum or vinyl flooring.         

i. Use Air purifiers
Air purifiers collect airborne dust in your home and can help with controlling dust if you also maintain vigorous cleaning practices.

j. Vacuum regularly. This is where RAYCOP, the first UVC anti-allergy vacuum plays a big role.

Raycop is the first UVC anti-allergy vacuum cleaner that kills 99 percent of bacteria and eliminates almost 94 percent of dust mites. It is especially designed to clean bed linens and other fabrics helping to create a healthier home by cleaning deep into the household fabrics, mattresses, sofas, chairs, futons, crib, pads, bed sheets, pillows and curtains.

The process of eliminating bacteria and other allergens employed by the vacuum cleaner is through its patented 3-step allergy care system. First, the vibrating pad shakes particles and dust mites away from mattresses at a whopping 3,600 times per minute (twice that in some models), making sure that even the most stubborn dust mites are removed.

This is followed by the UVC sterilization lamp that kills bacteria to leave surfaces germ-free. The lamp uses a highly efficient and effective 253.7 nanometer wavelength, the same germicidal ultraviolet wavelength used in hospitals, clinics and laboratories for almost seven decades now.
Finally, the device uses a cartridge filter that captures the larger particles and traps them so they cannot go back to the room.
Distributed by Zinven Int’l Corp., the Raycop UVC anti-allergy vacuum cleaner is available at Rustan’s department stores, S & R, Landmark, Wilcon Builders Libis, and Abenson’s department stores. For more information about Raycop product lines and its outstanding features, visit their Web site www.raycop.com.

Kettle Korn: Poppin’ Fun All The Time!

I love pop corn and movies.

That's why when I am enjoying either of the two, I am looking for the other one to truly enjoy the experience. I have been a movie fan since the VHS era. I particularly love movies made by Disney specially those that features Princesses.

I even dream of having my own Princess movie where I will be paired with a Prince Charming and together we will accomplished the mission of making all the Disney Villains like Ursula, Jafar or even the evil Stepmother to turn nice. It will be a fun-filled movie as we go to one kingdom to another.

And when I finish my film, I would like to be the first person to watch it. I will have with me a big container of pop corn. Among the brand of pop corn locally, I love Kettle Korn than others because it makes watch movies poppin' fun all the time.

Be beautiful and healthy the wholeyear through

Ms. Belle Tan, Fine Hyaluron and Collagen user for more than 3 years giving a testimonial how effective the product is
Collagen is a major protein component in the human body. Approximately one quarter of the total amount of proteins in the body is composed of collagen. Collagen helps to maintain the strength and flexibility of skin, connective tissue, ligaments, bones, joints, muscles, tendons, gum, teeth, eyes, blood vessels, nails and hair. In fact, 70% of the skin is composed of collagen. As we age, collagen production in the body starts to slow down. Therefore, the skin inevitably loses its firmness and radiance.

Visible signs of aging become more visible; pores enlarge, wrinkles, age spots, blemishes, dry and sagging skin appears. Collagen derived from fish is a natural rejuvenating source that replenishes the body's own collagen supply and boosts collagen cell turnover. Due to its premium quality, this low molecular weight collagen peptide is used to ensure far greater absorption and utilization by the body than other collagen products, resulting in skin that is younger-looking and firmer.

With aging, ELASTIN dries up and shrinks, thereby losing its natural ability to provide skin with elasticity, texture and firmness. Elastin is the protein that allows skin to "spring back' into place when stretched, so skin stays resilient and firm.

The largest amount (approx. 50%) of HYALURONIC ACID (HA) in our body resides in skin tissue. With age, the levels of hyaluronic acid in the body decrease, causing considerable reduction in the moisture binding capacity, resulting in dry skin and weak joints. HA and collagen are vital to maintain the skin's layers and structure.

While collagen gives skin its firmness, it is the HA that nourishes and hydrates the collagen. It acts as a space filler between cells, while collagen and elastin fibers act as a constant lubricant. It is also present in the synovial fluid of joints and eyes, providing moisturizing protection. HA may help slow signs of aging such as wrinkles, fatigue, diminished eye function and joint pain. This low molecular weight HA ensures better absorption and utilization by the intestinal tract.

PEARL COIX (HATOMUGI) extract has been used for over 30 years in Japan as a detoxification and beauty supplement for clear, fair and luminous skin.

VITAMIN C helps to provide antioxidant effect and is indispensable to collagen production in the body.

BIOTIN helps to maintain the health of skin, hair and nails.

Restore the vibrancy, strength and softness of skin!  An excellent beauty supplement to regain youthfulness is now available in the market. It's easy to drink with a fruity taste.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the major protein component in the human body. Approximately one quarter of the total amount of proteins in the body is composed of Collagen. 70% of the skin is composed of Collagen.

Why should you use Collagen?

As we age, the amount of Collagen decreases. Collagen holds the key to youthfullness and beauty.

How much Collagen do you need a day?

The benchmark amount is 5,250 mg of low molecular weight, fish derived Collagen peptides.

Do you know that Collagen applied to the skin does not reach the deep layers?

Since Collagen molecules are large, they do not readily reach the dermis. In other words, Collagen applied to the skin will not easily replenish the Collagen in the dermis. We recommend taking oral Collagen which are Collagen in low molecular weight form.

When is the best time to take Collagen for it to be effective?

Can be taken anytime of the day but preferably at night before going to bed, because when you sleep, that is the time your body regenerates.

Is it all right to drink it while I am pregnant?
Collagen is a food so taking the benchmark amount should pose no problems.
