How to Pack Beauty? – Your Cosmetics’ Bag Travels with You

You may have planned your whole life carefully, but the best things happen spontaneously. For example, a holiday, a short trip of just a few days to a lovely resort, or a weekend getaway to nature. Holidays, wherever adventure winds may take you, require a degree of preparation, quick thinking, and anticipation. We are talking about something you would not do without on many of your trips – your personal cosmetic’s bag, which holds your whole life and much more. When travelling light, you can take only a minimal number of personal belongings, including cosmetics, so trying to pack the entire daily beauty routine into a tiny bag is a real headache.

What Exactly is in Our Cosmetics’ Bags?

We are all aware that everyday cosmetics and hygiene products are most worth buying in large quantities. This, however, means large bottles of products that are difficult to fit onto the bathroom shelf or in drawers. We will not even begin to talk about packing it all for your trip – one large bottle may find its place in your suitcase, but not five or even more products! Such reality shines a different light on a few things.

Firstly, we are used to having products for all occasions. Let's look at any bathroom or any cosmetic's bag. We will see many similar products, which formulas differ in one or two ingredients. Since we do not go too deep into what is written in small print, we often buy products that we don't really need. Still, the different name on the product's packaging indicates that we don't have it our arsenal of beauty yet. As we want to prepare for this war as best as possible, we usually buy everything we lay our eyes on.

Secondly, the world’s famous cosmetic brands thrive on such behaviour. You may have seen several products of the same line in the store more than once. For example, shampoo, conditioner, and hair masks are designed to work together and supposedly bring fabulous results. Producing different product lines is just a cheap marketing and product design trick that forces customers to buy more than they really need. It creates a sense of urgency and foreshadows the best results possible, which do not work great with our logical thinking.

To sum up – we have tones of unnecessary products in our cosmetic’s bags. We probably don’t even need to add that the more products we have, the harder it is to fit them in one cosmetic bag or say goodbye to them for at least a few days that you will spend away from home.

What Our Cosmetic’s Bags Actually Need?

Whether you’re at home or going on holiday, just like with clothes, we have stuff we don’t need at all and miss things that we don’t intentionally have with us at that time. To avoid this, we advise you to make a list of cosmetic and beauty products and consider what you are using. Eliminate whatever just collects dust on the shelf and is over its expiration date. We mostly have but do not use gifted cosmetics and beauty products, especially ones that require a lot of time daily to operate correctly.

During trips, just as after a hard day’s work, no one really wants to spend long hours in front of a mirror, so here wins a quick and convenient beauty and hygiene routine. It usually consists of basic yet essential things – hair, skin, oral care products, for example, shampoo, shower gel, various creams, toothpaste, and brush. We will not include multiple serums, ampoules, masks, or anything like that in this super shortlist because every ordinary person does not use them.

To prepare for all life adventures, just a few simple products are enough. To regain strength and maintain your beauty levels every day, you do not need to carry a few pounds worth of products everywhere you go. When travelling, it is not necessary to fit a lifetime of cosmetic products in one tiny cosmetic’s bag. However, probably every person has tried to do so without even using many things once.

How Can We Change Some Products?

Some things are simply irreplaceable, but you can discover an even better alternative to make your life and daily beauty routine easier by searching more closely. Although this is not yet a popular option, some brands sell their products in different forms. This means that you can buy two or even three different types of the same product in brands’ online stores, for example, liquid shampoo, spray shampoo, and hard shampoo. Even though the first two examples still reach consumers in bottles (glass, plastic, or metal), the third option is usually packaged in paper packaging. The hard shampoo is friendlier for the environment and takes up less space in our bathrooms and cosmetic bags. Moreover, hard shampoo usually lasts for a more extended period than liquid shampoo.

Another thing worth mentioning is products with universal purpose. While men can quite often find one bottle that will contain shampoo or shower gel and hair conditioner, women are often forced by manufacturers to buy a greater number of different products. It hurts our wallets and the environment, and it also requires a lot of space. Universal products like shampoo + conditioner or shower gel + body lotion helps to save space not only daily but also on trips.

How to Fit EVERYTHING?

Once you have decided what to take with you on the trip, it is time to try and fit everything in one tiny little cosmetic’s bag – and this is where the fun begins. Of course, it depends on the size of your cosmetic bag whether you will fit products to be your partners in crime on trips and adventures. At this point, we advise you to choose the optimal size cosmetic bag according to your travel style. You will probably be able to take more cosmetic products when travelling by car. On a plane with only hand luggage, you are guaranteed not to be able to do so; otherwise, you will only be restricting yourself. Don’t be afraid to buy a new cosmetic’s bag of a different size every few years because it is unnecessary to live a life with only one cosmetic bag.

Before buying a new cosmetic’s bag or just packing it for a trip, think about your beauty and hygiene need at that time. If you stay longer in one place, you may choose cosmetic bags with a zipper. On arrival at the place, you can conveniently unpack everything onto the cosmetics’ table. If you choose a more active holiday and spend every night at a different location or perhaps in nature, choose hanging cosmetic bags with clear compartments. You will always see all the necessary products immediately.

It is essential to responsibly plan the sizes of the cosmetics you take on your trip. We will not tell you the news if we mention that the size of one bottle of cosmetics cannot exceed 100 ml when travelling by place. Still, you will need even less product if travelling for just a couple days. No matter how we like it, travelling does not last forever, so it’s important not to overload ourselves with too many things, including cosmetics. It is always possible to buy samples as almost every popular product always offers a smaller, travelling-friendly version. Besides, the hotels themselves offer the most necessary cosmetics, which all guests find in their rooms and often take home with them. So, think about whether something is worth taking if you will be given it for free.

Another great way to save space in your beauty bag is to share hygiene products with your partner, roommate, or travel friend. Men’s shower gel is perfect for women and vice versa, so on the trip, you will need to take not two bottles of a specific product, but only one.

It is also convenient to be prepared in advance – pack your essential cosmetic bag and take it with you everywhere, keeping it in your car. This can often save you from the inconvenience of suddenly staying overnight with friends or going on a spontaneous holiday.

However, often you start planning your essential cosmetic bag, you may not even know where to start. We have thought of you and created products that help ensure order in your cosmetic bag and your daily routine. Recently we started selling three different bundles so that everyone can find the most suitable option for themselves. Very soon, this fun trio will grow as we are planning to release one more bundle. Let’s start by learning what we can offer you at this point.

The first bundle is for those just beginning their journey through this adventure-filled world of cannabinoids – it’s Beginner Bundle! We had put three excellent products in one convenient cosmetic bag – CBD Blueberry Gummies Full Spectrum, CBD Premium Skin Cream, and CBD Oil Drops Raw (5%)! Combining these products will help a person who doesn’t know anything about CBD to discover balance and harmony in three areas at once – mind, soul, and body, so why not try it today?

The second bundle is for those who are also seeking the full benefits of using cannabinoid products – it’s Wellness Bundle! In a comfortable and eco-friendly cosmetic bag, we put MULTI-Cannabinoids Paste, CBD Cooling Gel, and CBG Oil Drops Raw (10%)! This combination will help you always feel energetic and not lacking good emotions!

The third but certainly not the last bundle is for those already convinced of CBD benefits and want to try it for themselves – it’s CBD Trio Bundle! It is a set of our very first products, in which everyone will discover the most suitable concentration of CBD for themselves and their families. In a convenient cosmetic bag, you will find 5%, 10%, and 21% CBD Oil Drops Raw, which has now long been everyone’s favourite! Those who have not yet experienced this joy will be able to gradually discover the benefits of cannabinoids.

What will you put in your cosmetic bag?

Too long, didn’t read? Your cosmetic bag holds a lifetime and more, but what happens when you must go on a trip? Before packing items and especially cosmetics, think about what products you will absolutely need. Maybe you can do a few days without a body scrub or hair mask? We advise you to choose products as versatile as possible and packed in small packaging; take samples of your already loved products with you! For unexpected trips, always have prepared a cosmetic bag with your essentials.

Zero Waste Living! or How Trash Becomes a Rarity

Spring is accelerating, and every morning we wake up to see more and more greenery and blooming flowers. We are inevitably overwhelmed by the urge to go into nature and spend as much free time as possible breathing the fresh air. However, all the positive emotions are instantly evoked by the view that we also see in forests, parks, near lakes and rivers. That is the trash piling up and polluting our planet together with our bodies. Although the problem worries people worldwide, it is up to each of us to start tackling it. 

New Trend or Life-long Mission?

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure – this saying has been with us for what seems like forever, yet as we mentioned, one person is enough to make a change. Quite recently various social media platforms and people on them started to go crazy due to this relatively new trend – zero waste living. As some, of course, saw this just as another crazy trend to gain more attention, for thousands of people going zero waste is a conscious action they take to free the planet from waste. 

Even though the term ‘zero waste’ was first used only in the early 2000s, this environment-saving practice began way earlier in the 1980s. Back then, ‘zero waste’ was better known as ‘total recycling’ – Daniel Knapp and his wife tried to prove to everyone that all types of waste could be diverted from landfill and reused within the community. They then breathed in the life to the concept by opening a salvation market. A decade later, the same man set up a program to eliminate all waste in Australia by 2010. It formed a strong and successful concept with other initiatives, which now is known as Zero Waste Living. It is pretty amazing to see such an idea evolve and include more and more people each year united to save the planet from over polluting.

Basic Deeds Saves All

If we tried to explain the concept of zero waste living to our grandmothers, we should just say that we are aiming to send nothing to a landfill. The practice includes reducing what we need, reusing as much as we can once things cannot fulfil their original purpose, sending as little as possible to recycling centres, and composting. As all four components constitute the unified zero-waste system, they, of course, should be standard in every people’s lives. However, all should also be aware that recycling is the second to last option as growing consumerism goes hand in hand with mixed materials, which are almost impossible to recycle.

By committing to zero waste living, we generally redefine the system and move from a linear economy to a circular economy. It means quitting the practice of making new materials every time they are needed and then getting rid of them when they don’t. As we connect two ends of a line and make it into a circle, we stop creating materials from scratch because we have plenty of them that we can use repeatedly. For example, various countries have adopted the practice of a deposit-refund system, where people purchasing beverages pay an additional amount of money, usually ten or twenty cents, which they receive back after returning bottles to deposit stations. Even though it seems like a small step, this initiative has already helped free nature from millions of plastic and glass bottles as well as metal cans. Therefore, a cleaner planet and healthier human lives all start with taking small yet incredibly responsible steps.

Same Vision – Different Devotion

We can all leave a positive footprint on earth if we put in the effort and turn all our thoughts in that direction. Yet as expected, people take different paths towards an outcome of clean and unpolluted nature. One of them is more like going backwards than moving forward. Many people would instead continue accumulating vast amounts of trash every day rather than rethinking their practices and making some changes; we can call such people ‘those who do not care.’ Another group of people may genuinely want to reduce the amount of plastic packaging they use but are forced against such a decision. Switching to more ecological, natural and recycled ideas is a more considerable burden for one’s bank account than buying factory-produced cheaper but often disposable items. Indeed, zero waste products are usually sold in small local shops and made from sustainable yet more expensive material alternatives – wood, bamboo, metal, glass, etc. So to say, people who decided to switch to this nature-friendly movement should have bigger expenses in mind.

Even though zero waste living now seems like a well-known practice with a clear goal in the minds of those who are determined to live more responsibly, there are at least two different levels of this sustainable devotion. Moving from a comfortable life using plastic goods to far more responsible consumption may be too much of an extreme change. Therefore, people start with the low-impact lifestyle, which focuses on holistically reducing one’s environmental impact – together with second-hand shopping, plant-based diet and similar practices, people are getting closer to their intention. Zero waste life includes all of the mentioned actions, but it focuses more on eliminating waste, as said. Many are hesitant to devote their life to zero waste as social media is filled with videos and stories of people fitting all of their trash accumulated within a year into a small glass jar. However, only the most extreme cases of a zero-waste lifestyle can be fit into a jar as it is quite a struggle to find all necessary goods unpacked or packed in recyclable materials. Despite differences, all situations are commendable as they add to a safer environment and brighter future of billions.

First Steps are the Hardest 

We all know how much courage it takes to turn your life upside down. Therefore, we encourage to begin with small steps and gradually include more and more zero waste lifestyle practices into everyday life. For this very reason, we decided to help you by giving some tips our teammates swear by switching from unrecyclable plastics to one tiny glass jar containing all of your trash and other natural resources-preserving practices. Let’s begin!

Hobbies. We all can agree on how excellent new books smell: the smell of comfort on the rainiest autumn day. No matter how therapeutic paper books can be, this habit hurts the earth’s lungs – many trees are cut to produce one book, which most people will read only once after buying it. Solving this problem and becoming a zero-waster could be done two ways. One requires you to visit used book shops, search for people willing to exchange books or register for local library membership. All these ideas still give you the experience of holding an actual book in your hands; however, the following tips are more technological. Trees are saved by listening to audiobooks or reading electronic versions on a tablet. 

Beauty. Most of the women wash their hair once every two days or even every day. Despite global quarantine and pandemic shifted their usual hair washing schedule, we can guarantee most of them using shampoos, conditioners and rejuvenating hair masks from plastic bottles. When they are empty, they are tossed straight to the bin and later end up in landfills worldwide. Solid shampoo bars have been available for quite some time, yet they are not that popular as shampoo bottles just for their packaging. Soon we will offer a fantastic solid shampoo with all the best hemp qualities – be patient!

Food. Oh, how sweet it is sometimes to take a day off from cooking and how convenient it is to have delicious food delivered right to your doorstep! Food delivery is a relatively new concept, yet it produces very much plastic packaging, which cannot be recycled and takes hundreds of years to decompose. Again, we can tackle this problem from two perspectives – restaurant and cafes should switch to recycled cardboard packaging and cutlery. As people mostly order food due to craving and impulses, one should be prepared for such situations in advance by filling their freezers with quick-to-made healthy food. Besides, we highly encourage you to buy all of the food in farmers markets – it is both more ecological and cheaper!

Many companies and brands are now changing their strategies to be as sustainable as possible. Biomedicanna is no exception in encouraging our customers to take care of nature; we at the same time are taking care of ourselves – our bodies, skin, mind, and well-being. We are advocating the reuse of items, thus preventing them from entering the landfill, so all of our cosmetic containers are perfect for a second life in your home – pour a bath salt, light a candle or put the jewellery. Remember, love for ourselves starts from loving our surroundings.

Oncological Diseases: Knowing Your Enemy

No single medical diagnosis does not mean the end of the world. Of course, one may feel frustrated and lost once a doctor delivers the news about a serious disease: they get angry both at themselves and at the people around them, they quickly choose to blame themselves and others for untimely work and neglect. Our bodies do not thank us for further stressing and pouring rain of emotions as it only weakens both organism and spirit. Even though there is sometimes nothing that we may do to avoid diseases, we can always ease them. How to deal with one of the most anticipated diagnoses – oncological diseases?

What we know about oncological diseases?

Our bodies are a complex connection between trillions of cells every having different functionality. Once old cells die, new cells take their place. However, this ordinary process may be disturbed when cells start to grow abnormally and out of control. Such cells form tumours, which can be two types – malignant and benign. The latter type of tumours is not cancer as benign masses tend to grow slowly but do not spread. Malignant tumours, on the other hand, can grow incredibly quickly, and as they spread throughout the body, they destroy normal healthy tissue along the way.

Oncologists distinguish four main groups of oncological diseases:

Besides these four types of cancer, there are many others – as they are less common, one should consider further researching them and consulting expert oncologists. However, the typology of oncological diseases does not end here: the severity of cancer diagnosis is determined by stages I to IV. Stage I means the cancerous tumour is small and has not yet grown into nearby tissues; stage IV means the cancer is advanced and has already spread into other parts of the body.

What we know about causes of cancer?

The diagnosis of the oncological disease can be like thunder from the clear sky. However, paying regular visits to doctors and signing up for preventive screenings help. Besides, they are compensated by government initiatives. The numbers of oncological diseases have reached never seen highs in recent years with the major cases being diagnosed in the last stages having little to no chance of saving a person’s life. As the largest part of losses could have been avoided by regular preventing screenings, a lot of countries have declared the prevention of oncological diseases a national health objective.

Expert oncologists advise everyone, no matter their age or sex, to have a discussion with family practitioners about the genetic side and prevention of oncological diseases if they seem to run in the family. As genes are inherited, the causes of cancer may lie within the family’s history. The fact itself that your mum, dad, or one of the grandparents have fought cancer does not mean that you will do too, but the risk of oncological diseases is much higher this way.

Doctors also link some types of cancer with certain factors, which may not directly cause disease but can increase the risk of receiving the bad news. Reducing the risk factors helps to avoid oncological diseases, but the first step to a healthy life is acknowledging the vulnerability of life itself. Smoking, alcohol, high-fat diet, or constant exposure to UV light are the things that cause lung, skin, liver, or colon cancer, etc. Adults, in this case, are more vulnerable when compared to children as these factors are most harmful after long periods of exposure.

Doctors and medical researches do not rule out the possibility of getting cancer after virus exposure. As cancer is not contagious, you will never get it from contacting another person. However, as HIV causes AIDS, it can also lead to cell changes, which may develop into oncological diseases. It is more common to get cancer after being exposed to certain environmental factors for long periods. Such conditions include working with chemicals, in construction, or doing similar jobs as defective personal protection equipment can lead to higher levels of dangerous exposure.

What we know about curing oncological diseases?

Any type of cancer is easiest to cure when diagnosed in the earliest stages. Even if one finds themselves fighting this disease, being diagnosed with stage 1 cancer is nothing to worry about as there are plenty of methods and experimental medicine to cure it. Some types of cancer may be removed surgically, but there is always the risk of cancerous cells to spread. There is also a way of finding donors, which is usually close family members, to donate their bone marrow to the patient of leukaemia with a change of curing it and prolonging a person’s life. Besides, chemotherapy is considered to be the most common way; chemotherapy uses several types of chemotherapeutic agents, which may be given with curative intent, or may prolong the life of patients together with reducing cancer symptoms.

Medical researches and oncologists agree that chemotherapy helps cancer patients survive, but such treatment also has a negative side. The most common side-effect of chemotherapy is hair loss; it is also the most visible one as other side-effects include gastrointestinal distress, anaemia, infertility, and sometimes can lead to significant organ damage. Other side-effects of chemotherapy also include extensive nausea and vomiting. As these issues are quite simple to cure for ordinary human with the help from a local drugstore, cancer patients are forced to use extremely powerful drugs which has their own side-effects.

Some cancer patients who experience very strong side-effects and constant pain choose to use products from nature to ease it including CBD. There is no reliable information or medical research of CBD oil curing oncological diseases, but many cancer patients use it for relieving pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, etc. As symptoms of both cancer and chemotherapy are pretty severe and exhausting, patients and their family members are looking for CBD oil drops or CBG  paste with the highest possible product concentration on the market as it has the highest potential.

The diagnose of oncological diseases does not mean the end of the world, so let’s just think of it as a tough chapter from your favourite video game, which everyone will eventually pass. The disease itself does not matter as long as you are surrounded by your loved ones caring and rooting for you every step of the way. It helps to know every inch of your body very well and spending enough time for quality self-care procedures, including preventive cancer screenings – it saves lives.

The information used to prepare this blog was acquired from reliable sources. Consult professional oncologists before making decisions and sign for preventive screenings today.


Hemp - The Mother Plant

You probably know that CBD is cannabinoid found in the magical hemp plant. But did you know about all the other fantastic uses of hemp worldwide?

To start, hemp is one of the most useful plants in the whole world. It’s greatly sustainable and can be used to make so many things, it’s truly incredible!

Just to name a few, hemp can be used to build your home, feed your family, dress you in the finest attire, hold your notes, change the worlds plastic problem and even fuel your car!

Hempcrete - the future of housing construction

You may not be able to make an entire house out of hemp, but the great thing is that hemp is quick-growing, requires few pesticides or fertilisers, and the process of turning the harvested hemp into building materials like hempcrete is simple and environment-friendly.

Hemp seeds - small but very versatile

Hemp seeds are rich in protein, omega-3, E and B vitamins, magnesium, potassium and iron. The seeds can be consumed raw or cold pressed to produce hemp seed oil and protein. Hemp seed protein can be used to produce virtually any product made from soybean: tofu, veggie burgers, butter, cheese, salad oils, ice cream, milk, etc. It’s a true superfood!

Hemp textile - the future of sustainable fashion

Despite making up less than 1% of all textile products, hemp is a good source of fabric. Why? Hemp fabric is anti-microbial, has a high tensile strength, breathes better than cotton, and gets softer with age. In order to grow enough cotton to make just one T-shirt, you would need 720 gallons of water. Hemp requires half as much.

Hemp paper - protector of trees

On an annual basis, 1 acre of hemp will produce as much paper as 2 to 4 acres of trees. It also can be produced much quicker as hemp only requires around 120 days to grow. From tissue paper to cardboard, all types of paper products can be produced from hemp.  This makes the raw material super sustainable and eco-friendly!

Hemp plastic - a must for a sustainable future

When made with biodegradable polymers, hemp plastic is completely biodegradable, unlike regular plastics. Compared to petroleum-based plastics, hemp plastic doesn’t contain any toxic substances and is 3.5 times stronger and 5 times stiffer. As a result, hemp plastics are more safe and durable.

Hemp bio-fuel - keeping the ozone clean

Non-toxic bio-diesel is produced by the pressing of hemp seeds to extract their oils & fats. After the extraction, the product is then put through more steps to make it into a usable hemp bio-fuel for your car. Hemp seed oil can also be used as a lubricative, oily ingredient in the processes to produce paint, varnish, detergent or ink. Because hemp seeds account for up to half the weight of a mature hemp plant, hemp seed is a viable source for these products.

No other natural resource offers the potential of hemp. Cannabis Hemp is capable of producing significant quantities of vital every day materials in a much more sustainable fashion. Unlike other crops, hemp can grow in most climates and on most farmland throughout the world with moderate water and fertilizer requirements, few pesticides, and no herbicides.

Hemp is truly the future.
