Looking for Love - Discovering True Beauty When Looking For Love

 One of the most important things we consider when looking for love is the initial attraction we may feel with the opposite sex, perhaps gained with camouflage makeup or clothing. Understandably, attraction plays a major role in the development of prospective relationships. It tells the brain whether or not it is prudent to pursue a particular date. Scientific fact tells us that it takes the normal human brain less than a second to decide whether attraction is present or not. Attraction is mostly based on what society has dictated to be "beautiful"; and this has taken a major seat in our decision-making.

There's no doubt that initial attraction is vital when it comes to making decisions about prospective partners. However, you should realize that not everyone is created equal. More than half of the population is deemed undesirable by society and therefore is subjected to the reality of being judged by their outer appearance. For most people, looking for love and actually finding it has become significantly harder because their very appearance is now one of the most important criteria people use to find their mate.

So what now? If people do have the tendency to look for stereotypical beauty, then why is it that couples who are seen as unattractive individually end up finding love? This is simply because they have managed to look beyond the common idea of attraction and have decided that inner beauty is more important. These people are successful because they were willing enough to look beyond the physical aspects of a human being. They made a conscious decision to get to know the other person and see if there may be an attraction on another level - a level that is more important than the physical realm.

When you go through the rounds of conventional dating, the amount of dates you will have are bound to be higher than the number of people you will be having a relationship with. In most cases, initial attraction will play a major role in your decision-making. Some people deemed unattractive will go unnoticed just because you have judged them prematurely. This should not be the case. When looking for love, always remember that our physical beauty will diminish over time, but our inner beauty will never age. Each and every one of us is beautiful as long as we are willing to discover the beauty that lies within.

Memory foam mattress topper for better sleep hygiene

How clean is your bed? If you’ve got an old mattress, you’d be surprised at how unhygienic it may be.

We live in a culture where hygiene is a key concern of many people – from how many germs are on your chopping board to the latest cleaner for your toilet. What we tend to forget in our haste to keep our homes perfect, is how unhygienic our mattresses can be. Sheets and duvets provide a barrier between you and your mattress, but they don’t stop stains, spills and secretions getting into your mattress. Multiply all those nights by how many years you’ve had your mattress, and you’ll get an idea of the state your bed might be in. A memory foam mattress topper could help to improve things.

Better hygiene = better health

We sweat in bed every night, and that sweat soaks through our sheets and into our mattresses and pillow cases. The moist, warm conditions are an ideal breeding ground for dust mites, which in turn leave droppings which can irritate your skin the lining of your nose and throat, and exacerbate some allergies. The ideal thing to do is to change your mattress completely, but this might be too expensive or difficult for you, which is why a memory foam mattress topper is an excellent alternative.  

Our memory foam mattress toppers are made from a single layer of visco-elastic material. Unlike traditional sprung mattresses, which have a number of different layers of fillings and finishes, memory foam is a single, straightforward construction, improving hygiene. In addition, because the mattress topper fits snugly on top of your current mattress, it creates and excellent barrier between your body and your old mattress. This barrier can help to reduce your exposure to dust mites, prevent you from continuing to provide them with the conditions they need to survive, and give you some relief from the aches and pains of an unsupportive mattress into the bargain.

Care & Comfort Products Ltd is a family business that’s dedicated to providing you with the very best in memory foam mattress toppers, full memory foam mattresses and pillows. Our aim is to help you improve the quality of your sleep and your overall health by improving the mattresses and beds you sleep on.

Beds and hygiene

It’s important to follow basic hygiene procedures when you’re looking after new beds and mattresses.

A good cleaning routine is important when it comes to keeping beds and bedrooms in a hygienic state. We spend at least one third of our lives in bed, and sweat, on average, over half a pint of fluid every night. There are several things you can do to ensure that your bed is as hygienic as possible:

  • Protective covers – buy protective covers for your mattresses. Beds don’t always need this type of protection, but mattresses will benefit from them, and so will you. That’s because the protective cover will prevent potentially harmful allergens in your mattress from becoming airborne, causing an allergic reaction.

  • Air your mattress – when new beds and mattresses are delivered, remove the polythene or plastic wrapping and let the base and mattress air for a while. You should also let the mattress air regularly – leave some time between taking one set of bedding off the bed and putting the new set on, for example, and always let your bed air for at least half an hour in the morning before you make it.

  • Vacuum regularly – vacuuming your mattress will help to reduce the amount of dust and dead skin in and around the beds in your home. Vacuum mattresses carefully so that you don’t damage the outer cover – or ticking – and vacuum under and around the bed as well to clear any other dirt and dust.

  • Clean carefully – if your beds or mattresses get stained, clean them with a mild detergent and not too much water. Mattresses don’t dry out quickly, so don’t soak or over-clean them because you will encourage damp.

  • Change your bed – if your bed is more than 10 years old, or if your mattress or base is showing signs of significant wear and tear, you need to consider buying a new bed. Don’t give your bed away to someone else, or sell it second hand – if it’s too unhygienic and uncomfortable for you to sleep on, why should anyone else want to use it?
