All you need to know about Protein Powder for women

Protein makes you bulky? Women shouldn’t use protein? These are comments I hear on a daily basis and I’m tired of hearing them. It seems like a lot of other people are sick of it too, that’s why Scitec Nutrition have released an article on exactly why women should use protein. It’s so important to take onboard this information if you are interested in increasing your strength, your performance and your results. It’s time to ignore the myths of women using protein powders.

All you need to know about Protein Powder for women

Getting into fitness but feel like you’re being bombarded by proteins and supplements and wondering if you do really need to be consuming them? There is a myth that protein powder is just for men looking to bulk up for bodybuilding, but are working to dispel this myth. Here they explain the importance and need for protein as part of a healthy diet and fitness routine.

Protein Powder explained

Protein is a macronutrient which is essential to building muscle mass and maintaining a balanced diet alongside an active lifestyle. It encourages your body to recover more quickly, helps you stay lean after working out and may also be used as a weight loss aid.

There are natural sources of protein you can eat as part of a healthy diet. Scitec Nutrition recommends using protein powders if you are looking at building and maintaining muscle, especially if you’ve recently increased your workout routine. If this fits to what you want to achieve, then you should be using it.

You can take Scitec Nutrition’s 100% Protein Professional Powder protein shakes as part of a post-workout routine. It is a high quality whey protein blend designed to help aid recovery and muscle growth. It contains a blend of whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate alongside added digestive enzymes and Amino acids. These can help to improve muscle growth and ensure you are recovering faster from your training sessions.

Do you need it?

If you’re working out, using 100% Whey Protein Professional specifically post-workout will enable you to get protein into the body faster than eating alone. If you’re new to fitness and have started a new skill or sport, it’s beneficial in the early days to review your eating first, before introducing supplements. Goals are something to consider beforehand, as fat loss supplements differ to those looking to increase muscle. 100% Whey Protein Professional will fit in with this allowing your body to recover faster and fuel muscle growth.

Scitec Nutrition has made a helpful guide to protein powder, explaining more about what it is, what it does and why you might need it. They also dispel popular protein myths, in particular, those aimed at women such as “protein shakes will make me big” and “protein powder is just for men”. Team Scitec Ambassador, Jenna Beckworth, explains why protein is a vital part of your diet in the guide, plus it explains when you should be consuming your protein shakes, depending on your objectives and what else you need to support a healthy body.

Beauty Gifts That Will Blow Her Mind This Mother’s Day

I mean, you could get your poor mother a bunch of daffs and a bottle of wine again this mothers day. Alternatively, why not earn some extra brownie points and go for something a little more exciting and creative? To help you check out our curated list of beauty related gifts below. 
Cult makeup 
One way to show mum just how much you love her is to treat her to some of those products that she might not spoil herself with. You know the ones that she tuts at when she sees the price but is secretly delighted to receive such a nice gift. 
If you are stuck for ideas here an excellent go to is a good ol’ bottle of Chanel no 5. Although other (and cheaper) products like YSL Touche Eclat or a cheeky little Dior lipstick in her favourite shade might go down just as well. 

Spa days 

Who doesn't love a spa day, and buying one for your mum is certain to make her smile. Just make sure to get the version that includes treatment or too, so she feels totally pampered during the experience. 
You can even get coupons and discount codes for many of the spare locations now, so it doesn't have to break the bank either. Perfect! 
Makeover and photoshoot 
Another beauty related gift that could be a real winner this mother's day is buying mom a voucher for a photoshoot. These are carried out by professional photographers in their studios, and you can choose from a range of styles including vintage and portraits. 
The best thing is mum will get a makeover beforehand to ensure that she looks and feels her best in the pics. You could even book a mother-daughter session, and then you would both get the benefit and have a pleasant day out together. 
Perfumery course 

Something a little more outside the box, but definitely popular with a lot of mothers is a voucher to attend one the many perfumery courses that are now being offered all over the UK. On such courses, mum will be treated to some insights about how scent and perfume work, as well as some information on how to create their own unique blends for themselves or to give as gifts. 
A posh lunch and refreshment are usually thrown too, so it makes a perfect treat day to show Ma how much she means to you. 
Subscription box 
Lastly, the mother's day gift that keeps on giving is signing her up for a beauty subscription box like Birchbox. Something you can learn more about in the video below. 

The great things about this as a gift is that mum will get new products through the post every month, not just in March. Something that means it can be a great reminder for her throughout the year of how much you care. 
In addition, she gets to play with all the new and limited edition products that the box contains. Something that makes it perfect gift if you ma is makeup obsessed. Who knows, she may even let you try a few of them if you're super nice to her and do the washing up once in a while?

Swiss Clinic Skin Resculpting Treatment

I was extremely lucky to get my hands on the Swiss Clinic Skin Resculpting treatment, priced at £95 this set is used to help reduce fatty tissue and reduce the appearance of cellulite. It can also help minimise scars and stretchmarks.

The set is made up of two items, a Skin roller and a Cryogel body serum. The skin roller is made up of 0.5mm needles, the needles of the skin roller create thousands of tiny micro-channels in the skin prompting the skin to create collagen and stimulate new skin cells. While the serum that includes Corallina improves blood circulation and reduces the appearance of fat cells, resulting in visibly firmer and smoother looking skin. The non-stick formula leaves you with a cool and refreshing sensation.

To achieve the best results it is recommended to use the set combined with a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet, regular exercise and sleeping pattern, and drinking plenty of water. It is recommended to use the set for one week daily, and then rest for a week before starting again. 

My results so far. I have been using this set for 5 days now and I must say I do find the skin on my thighs looks a lot smoother. I have used it on my thighs because they are my problem area and where I struggle with cellulite. I look forward to seeing how my results change over the next few weeks and I will definitely be sharing before and after photos on my Instagram feed in the near future. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who struggles with stubborn cellulite or stretch marks.

What You Should Do in London if You Don't Want to do the Obvious Things

If you’re heading to London sometime soon, you definitely need to learn more about what England’s capital has to offer. This is important because everyone knows about the traditional options that everyone is aware of. But that doesn’t mean that you should stick to those options. There are plenty of less obvious things you can spend your time and energy doing instead, and they tend to be more interesting too. Here are just some of the options worth considering.
Take a Jack the Ripper Tour
Jack the Ripper is one of the most notorious criminals in British history, and there are many people out there producing fun for tourists of the back of his infamy. These Jack the Ripper tours take you through the London locations where the Victorian murders took place. It’s a fun way to spend an evening if you’re interested in this sort of thing.

Step Into the Home of Tea
Tea is pretty popular in London, as it is in the rest of Britain. But nowhere else as a place that can legitimately be called the home of tea. The Twinings Cafe in the Strand has been operating for more than 300 years. There are not many cafes that have been around for that long, and it’s a fantastic place to stop for a cup of team when you need a drink and a sit down.
Kayak on the River Thames
If you’re the kind of person that likes to get active and do something unique while you travel, why not take to the water. The River Thames is one of the things that everyone associates with London, but did you know that you could kayak on the river?

Travel in the Emirates Airline Cable Car
With a city as vast as London, the best way to see it is almost always from the sky. So, why not experience the Emirates Airline cable cars when you’re trying to get around the city? It’s a fun way to get a great view of London and see it from an entirely new perspective. It’s one of those things that many people still aren’t even aware of, but that’s something that should really change. You can learn more about it at
Visit the Grant Museum of Zoology
The Grant Museum of Zoology is one of the museums you’ll find in all of London. Visit its website at if you want to see it for yourself. It’s an interesting and unique way to spend an afternoon, and you will most definitely learn a lot while you’re there.
There’s so much to do in London, and anyone who’s visited the city as a tourist will tell you the same. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to stick to the places that the tourist guides tell you are best. As the examples above prove to you, there are so many out of the ordinary options out there waiting to be discovered.

Why Not Try A Camping Weekend Away?

Camping is something a lot of people have the wrong idea about. A lot of people like to think putting up a tent is stressful, that the wet and dark weather is invasive, and there’s no way to clean yourself up when you need to. And yet, these are all creature comforts we can still obtain when we’re sticking close to nature! Considering 98% of the UK isn’t built on, and roughly 93% of that are non urban areas, there’s plenty of natural wonders for you to find and explore! Of course camping isn’t for everyone, but just in case, here’s some reasons why your camping trip away might just be the relaxing holiday you’ve been looking for. 

It’s a Great Start to an Exercise Regime
When you’ve been meaning to get to the gym multiple times over the past couple of months or so, and only managed it once or twice or maybe never at all, you need a change of direction. That’s where camping can help you in your spares  time at the weekends.
When you take a trip away, it’s an escape in all forms. There’s no work you have to do, there’s no constant pinging of your phone when you’re off the grid, and there’s no way to get out of having to use your legs and all of your muscles to get by. You’re going to be walking through fields, and over hills and bridges, and you’re going to need to do everything a machine would do for you at home by yourself. 
It’s a Way to Spend Time Together
Being accompanied by friends and family on a camping trip is so different to booking into a hotel together. You need to communicate to make sure everything goes smoothly, and you’re going to have to entertain each other out in the wilderness! It’s a good activity for kids and adults alike, so bring everyone along for some relaxation. 
Simply, There’s a Lot to Do in Your Own Countryside!
We spend a lot of time looking outside of our own spheres towards the rest of the world. And that’s often for good reason! Other countries have amazing sights, sounds, and smells for people to experience and learn about, and meeting people from other walks of life can really open you up. 
And yet, that also means we tend to neglect our own surroundings; that’s just undeserving! Even just looking at things to do in the country, there’s pages and pages of events for you to experience, and the amount of green that covers the lands we were born on all have their own distinctions to them. You’ll sleep better when you’re living by the natural day and night cycle, you’ll have a lot more energy to you considering the amount of fresh air available, and that means you’ll be on the lookout for all the native flora and fauna the English countryside has to offer. 
Camping weekends are special to the people involved, try one out!
