Summer Time Kick Back and Beat the Heat

Summer Time Kick Back and Beat the Heat

Wow… summer is back

Ritual... and your Anatomicals’ inspired Ta Ta To Ooh Aah relaxing moments

Summer Time Kick Back and Beat the Heat


Finally, summer is back. Days are now much longer, the fresh evening breeze invites you outdoors, as indeed the more relaxed moods in general. Local feast, barbeques, parties, invitations, the beach and what else? They say that for us Maltese (as indeed most Mediterranean peoples) any occasion is a good one to celebrate; and summer is of course the season par excellence for any sort of celebration!

Of course, its corollary is the summertime habits which one would be better off by avoiding (during summer as indeed all year round). Those daily extra hours of sleep, the sense of laziness and procrastination (yes, lets admit it, Maltese summer heat does not encourage you to do any hard work, except from a refreshing swim), staying up too late, night after night, and too much alcohol during the daily excuse to celebrate!

Of course, summertime is summertime, and your body (mind and soul) needs that sluggish, holidayish, relaxing mood. But while mind and soul may be content with the change in routine, less work and more play, summer is the most taxing time for your body. Increased temperatures, higher sun exposure, more dry environment, sea-salt or chlorine all bruise your body throughout the summer months which imply that your body needs that extra care. Moisturising and skincare products are almost a must for the dry hot summer Maltese months, as indeed extra care for your hair. Of course, we here at Anatomicals offers a full range of such products for your tastes.


another fine stress we’ve gotten you out of


Ohh and by the way, whether you’re traveling or simply you want a small body wash, body lotion, body everyday shampoo, body hair conditioner or simply a small soap which can fit into the smallest of handbags (or pockets) and to take with you wherever you want (from the beach to that boat party), ANATOMICALS HOTEL AND TRAVEL AMENITY KIT is there for you.

All About Hotel Toiletries

All About Hotel Toiletries

Did you ever find yourself ‘stealing’… upps… I mean taking with you back home ‘used’ hotel toiletries not to let them go to waste, or as a souvenir or for the next trip?

Well, you’re not the only one. Indeed, most hotels consider it fair game (since they can’t be reused for the next guest) for you to take away those toiletries. Some go out of their way to encourage you to take them with you, on the understanding that every time you use an item taken from a particular hotel you’ll recall the wonderful time you spent in that hotel and (hopefully they argue) consider another visit!

Hotel guests have high expectations about what to expect in the hotels they visit. Of course this is especially the case for those staying in five-star accommodations. But let’s admit it, we all expect a degree of luxury and being pampered in the hotels we go to. Bathroom toiletries is one of the ways we want to be pampered with, and expect to be presented with (and be able to take with us) the best.

Travelling regulations about the liquids which may be carried in the aircraft cabin have increased the need for such amenities, especially for those going on short business trips without checked luggage. Yet lower-starred hotels do not necessarily provide them. Worse, some hotels had to recall their products after a scare or another about the ingredients therein we do not consider it ethical to indicate concrete examples, but of course these are available online.

Anatomicals has its own luxury hotel toiletries… and as with all its products it takes care to make sure that they remain true to its brand: being the world’s funkiest toiletries! Yes, you may find them in some hotel chains especially in the UK and Germany. Unfortunately, not all hotel managers have yet been converted! Which is the reason why Anatomicals offers for sale a range of hotel toiletries for those eager to travel with luxury and style wherever they’re going and whichever den they’re staying in. The range of products fits easily within the limits established by EU regulations as well as your handbag just in case you’re in an emergency and need to wash your paws!

Of course, while you’re at it remember you may also opt to be pampered with that same aaah… ouuuh pampering luxury at home… the larger varieties are just a click away.



Ritual… your Anatomicals’ inspired relaxing moments

Ritual… and your Anatomicals’ inspired Ta Ta To Ooh Aah relaxing moments

Rituals are said to be the key ingredient to achieve happiness and a healthy lifestyle… well of course an apple a day would help, but there is much more to it…

Daily rituals

Let’s face it. Much of our daily life is made up of rituals of one sort or the other. There are morning rituals, office rituals, religious rituals, relaxing rituals, and so on and so forth. Most probably, even these categories are in themselves a set of rituals. Take for example morning rituals: it includes showering rituals, if one’s a man, most likely shaving rituals, breakfast-ritual, driving ritual. Change one thing, and off goes the daily routine and on goes that sense of having missed something.

Relax shaving daily ritual

Shaving ritual


Many frown at the idea of having to follow a ritual, perhaps mindful of the dull, boring, often seemingly meaningless rituals which they associate with formal ceremonies and the like. To a certain extent, ritual may seem to be the opposite of the freedoms we value: freedom of expression, freedom of thought, freedom of action, personal emotional fulfilment and so on.

Yet rituals are part of our life… We all resort to them, in one form or another, to do things, solve problems, perform certain functions, build personal, family or group identities and make sense of what would otherwise be chaos. Through ritual, life flows more easily. At the same time it does so in a programmed yet mindless (automatic) way. Indeed, without rituals, every action represents a heavy dose of unpredictability and uncertainty… making life ehhhmmm… heavy…

Thankfully there are all sort of rituals which we can freely, and gladdingly make our own. A couple of examples spring to mind: reading a book, enjoying a quiet cup of tea, patting your pet for a few minutes…spend five minutes in personal recollection or prayer. Oh! Yes… you can of course lose yourself in a daily Anatomicals’ inspired Ta Ta To Ooh Aah relaxing moments. How… enjoy a relaxing bubble bath with Anatomicals’ Could we be Anymore Pacific Marine Bath Foam; rub yourself with a soothing, relaxing, delicious fragrance and silky texture of Anatomicals’ Not Another Rough Day Please.

Anatomicals Sleep Well and Sweet Dreams

Anatomicals Sleep Well and Sweet Dreams

We all know how important it is to sleep well… after all sleep is essential to ensure good health and well-being. Studies show that getting enough good quality sleep at the right time can help protect one’s health (mental and physical), quality of life, as well as safety…. and if Snow White’s tale is anything to go about… beauty!

anatomicals Garfield sleep



Sleep helps the brain to function as it should… when one is asleep, the brain is getting ready for the morrow, building new pathways to help one learn and remember information. (well we all know the corollary, that is when something is troubling you… the mind is still preparing for the next day… but one does not get the good night rest!!!)

Studies show that a good night’s sleep helps enhance one’s learning and problem-solving skills, emotional control, attention, decisions making and creativity. Sleep deficiency on the other hand negatively affects each of these skills, reduces one’s ability to cope with change, reduces one’s alertness increasing risks at work or on the road, and has also been linked to depression, suicide, and risk-taking behavior.

Sleep plays an equally important role in one’s physical health with ongoing sleep deficiency having been linked through scientific studies with an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, the risk of obesity. Sleep deficiency also negatively affects one’s immune system and its resilience (for example one may have trouble fighting common infections).

Of course sleep deficiency may be caused by a thousand and one reasons… and as much as we would like to help, Anatomicals does not have a solution to each and every one of them.

Top 9 Skin Care Tips During Winter

Top 9 Skin Care Tips During Winter

It’s January and the cold hard days of winter are leaving their mark on your skin. To add to the harsh cold conditions of winter add some extra wind on top of the cold and voila’ you now suffer from uncomfortable dryness. Dryness of the skin, face, hands and feet. Some people are more prone and dry skin will start flaking, cracking and signs of skin inflammation (eczema) will pop up.

How do you beat it?

Here are the Top 9 Skin Care Tips During Winter

  1. Seek a specialist
    Such a specialist can analyze your skin type, troubleshoot your current skin care regimen, and give you advice on the body care products you should be using.But that doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck buying high-end products. “Inexpensive products work just as well as high-end ones. In fact, the extra price you pay for the expensive stuff is often just for packaging and marketing. What’s most important is how your skin responds to the product — and how you like its feel, not how much money you paid for it.” says David Voron, MD, a dermatologist in Arcadia, Calif.
  2. Moisturise Frequently
    Find a dry skin relief balm moisturizer that’s oil-based, rather than water-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture than a cream or lotion.
  3. Help your Paws
    Since the skin on your hands is thinner than on most parts of the body and has fewer oil glands you really need to protect it well. Keeping your hands moist with a vitamin rich hand cream. Wear gloves when you go outside.
  4. Avoid wet socks and gloves
    Wet socks and gloves can irritate your skin and cause itching, cracking, sores, or even a flare-up of eczema.
  5. Turn on the Central heating systems
    Blast hot dry air throughout our homes and offices. Humidifiers get more moisture in the air, which helps prevent your skin from drying out.
  6. Hydrate Yourself
    Drinking water helps your skin stay young looking. In fact, it’s a myth. Water is good for your overall health and the skin of someone who is severely dehydrated will benefit from fluids.
  7. Moisturize Your Feet
    During the winter, your feet need strong stuff. Try finding lotions that contain petroleum jelly or glycerine instead. A minty foot cream is also ideal whilst a body lotion may give longer lasting protection.
  8. Use Deeply hydrating items
    If your facial skin is uncomfortably dry, avoid using harsh peels, masks, and alcohol-based toners or astringents, all of which can strip vital oil from your skin. Instead, find a face cleanser and masks that are “deeply hydrating,” rather than clay-based, which tends to draw moisture out of the face. And use them a little less often.
  9. Stop very Hot Baths
    Sure, soaking in a burning-hot bath feels great after frolicking out in the cold. But the intense heat of a hot shower or bath actually breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin, which can lead to a loss of moisture. You’re better off with just warm water and staying in the water a shorter amount of time.

Why Do We Get Cracked Hands and Chapped Lips?

Why Do We Get Cracked Hands and Chapped Lips?

Smooth and supple in September to red, chapped and rough by February? Ever been in this situation? We’ve all been through it every year of our existence on planet earth. Yet, we never really investigated who the main culprit behind this is!

The main culprit has always been a lack of moisture.

Hands Up!



In winter time there is a high decrease of humidity in our habitats. The outside air humidity plunges while thanks to indoor heating, inside, things are even drier. Another destructive pattern in winter is frequently washing your hands to avoid catching a cold or flu and so you’re eliminating whatever natural oils are left in your abused skin.

The mixture of all the above will leave your hands so dehydrated that it is no wonder that they will crack, peel and sometimes even bleed. It is a severe case of dry skin.


The Skin Barrier

The skin barrier is a mix of proteins, lipids, and oils. It protects your skin, and how good a job it does is mostly about your genes and sometimes a healthy diet.

Having a weak barrier will make you prone to such symptoms of sensitive skin, dry skin and eczema. It is no wonder that every winter you suffer from dry and cracked skin. #whydoesitalwayshappentome?


The Solution

No amount of drinkable water will heal your dry skin. What you need to do is improve your essential oil skin barrier. This can be used by a really good hand moisturizer with infused aloe vera or a dry skin balm which is rich in essential oils. If it’s chapped lips, than a spreadable lip balm which will help you to stop cracking up will do wonders.

The Lord of Scents: A Return to Natural Healing

The Lord of Scents: A Return to Natural Healing

Are you like me? Often times, I think aromatherapy is only thought of for making our home smell nice or to enrich our luxurious spa experiences. However smells can be really used as a medicinal fashion with proven healing benefits.

Anatomicals headache relief balm 2

Anatomicals Headache Relief Balm

When we are exposed to an aroma, tolecules are exposed to our olfactory epithelium, our nasal receptors. The transmission of this signal from the exposure of the fragrance molecule to our brain leads to interpretation of the scent in our brain centers, which involve memory, sensory perception, general processing center, and to a gland in our brain that mediates chemical secretion into our blood and other parts of our brain, just to name a few effects. With such intricacy of neuro-processing involved in our body’s interpretation of a fragrance, it’s no wonder that many patients eventually become staunch supporters of using aromatherapy to help them with a variety of daily health concerns.

In an effort to help you get started on this healing art, I will address a few common aromas for a few common health complaints. In order to simplify the listing of various fragrances for various health concerns, I will list the health concern separately and list some options for you to try in the store to see which one your body and mind resonate the most with in bringing you relief.

Anatomicals A zap zap of a review!

Another blogger has bloggin’ blogged about us! Check her out at:


Hey guys!

So, this is my second Anatomicals review (you can view the first one here) and I can safely say that I’m1 Zap! loving their products immensely! In this blog post, I am going to rave about the product called Zap! Zap Gets that Chap: Day and Night Spot Stick.



Anatomicals spot stick

Before I tell you how greatly this product has transformed my life, I have to warn you that it is definitely not a miracle worker. What I’m trying to say is, that this will not work on pre-existing spots that you might have on your body. Believe me, I tried it and it did not work. From what you’ve just heard, this will seem like a bad review but I can assure you, it is not. Here comes the good part! I was determined that this product is doing nothing special until a week ago!

BAM! It works on newly emerging spots! As I said, I was convinced that this product was futile but I decided to test it out for a few more days before tossing it away and I’m so glad that I did as I woke up one morning with an out-of-the-blue spot right in the middle of my forehead which was looking hideous. I applied this cream straight away and VOILA, the next day it was barely visible, until it completely faded away. That is when I figured out exactly how and on which type of spots you have to use this product.

How Do I Avoid Looking Tired as a One Legged Man in a Butt-Kicking Contest in the Morning

How Do I Avoid Looking Like Sh*t the Morning After a Bad Sleep or All-Nighter?

How Do I Avoid Looking Like Sh*t in the Morning

Every now and then you have to work really late on a project and end up sleeping pretty poorly or not at all. Boo’ friggity woo, the next morning you look like one of the living dead or like a one legged man in a butt-kicking contest. When people comment that you look tired, you begin feeling self-conscious about the bags and dark circles under your eyes and everything else about your appearance. Is there something you can do to not look like crap after a bad night of sleep?

Lack of sleep really pulls a number on us, doesn’t it? However worry not anatomicals are here to the rescue! It isn’t too hard to look office-presentable or cover up these signs of sleep deprivation, bypassing rude comments about how tired you look.

Here’s the anatomicals way to winning in a one legged man in a butt-kicking contest.

Step 1: Take a Good Strong Shower with Our Own Anatomicals Shower Gels

anatomicals shower gels

No, we’re not kidding. Taking a shower is dead obvious, do not skip this. Don’t. Drag yourself in there so the warm shower can wake you up, and if you have one of those exfoliating body scrub or energizing shower gels to use, all the better.

We recommend these items:

Ladies: Could we be anymore pacific, Don’t just clean it women scrub it, Make your scalp yelp Shampoo
Men: Get’s you clean like rehab can’t, Make your scalp yelp Shampoo

While you’re in there, use an exfoliating scrub for your face to brighten dull, pale-looking skin caused by lack of sleep.

Step 2: Combat The Signs of Lack of Sleep

Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer Patches, no old bags allowed.

Pale, tired skin

When you get to work or later in the day, get 5 to 10 minutes of exercise in—a brisk walk or some stair climbing—to get some youthful glow back into your skin.

Bonus tip: If you’re a lady, put on lipstick, whatever color brightens you up. (I’m not normally a makeup person, but when you’re faking wakeful put-togetheredness, a distracting, colorful lip really works.)

Step 3: Throbbing Headache Relief

Pesky headache is pestering your daily routine and can’t help you step up a gear. than you will need:

The famous head ache relief balm formula made up of all organic ingredients!

For next time, keep in mind some additional tips that may help you look fresher in the morning if you have a short night:

  • Use extra pillows and sleep on your back.
  • Limit caffeine and alcohol before bed time.
  • Drink lots of water: Before you go to bed and when you wake up to hydrate your whole body.
