  • Differences Between Sheer & Opaque Compression Stockings

     

    With summer just around the corner, we’re receiving an increasing number of questions about the differences between particular patterns - especially as it relates to sheer vs. opaque finishes.We hear many questions from both new and current compression wearers. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

    Is there a difference in effectiveness between sheer and opaque compression stockings?

    • No, they both will maintain the advertised levels of compression and you can rest assured that you will be getting the compression you need.

    What are some of the main differences between sheer and opaque compression stockings?

    •  Some of the main differences will be in the look and style as well as how much air and breathability they offer. As you might imagine, a sheer is going to be a bit more breathable than an opaque stocking. An opaque is wonderful for winter when you want the extra warmth.

     Which style will give me better coverage for my legs?

    •  While both styles of stockings will provide you with the necessary amount of compression, certain styles will give you better coverage. An opaque stocking will effectively hide very pronounced varicosities or unwanted sunspots, while the sheer will cover your legs, but still mildly expose your skin.

  • Summer Solstice - Fun Facts & Summer Style Picks

    summer

    Did you know that today is the longest day of the year? In the US and many other parts of the world, the sun will shine longer today than any other day. It’s known as Summer Solstice and has been celebrated around the world since anyone can remember.  So, in honor of the first day of summer, we thought we’d offer up some interesting facts about Summer Solstice- ones you can share over dinner with your loved ones or use to impress your friends on Facebook.

    • Today the sun will not set over the North Pole meaning the polar bears will be extra groggy come tomorrow afternoon.
    • Solstice comes from Latin and literally means “sun stand still,” fitting if we don’t say so ourselves.
    • Even though it’s the first day of summer we wouldn’t recommend heading to the beach just yet. Due to thermal inertia is takes some time for the ocean to “heat up” from the cold winter days- wait until mid-July for the real summer warmth to set in.
    • The reasoning for the longer day of sunlight is that the sun actually reaches its highest point in the sky- pretty neat if you ask us.
    • Solstice was traditionally celebrated by dancing around bonfires. Today, it’s often celebrated because it marks the beginning of hunting season and the start of BBQ weekends.
    •  Although there’s no way to know for sure, many historians & astronomers believe Stonehenge was constructed specifically for today’s celestial occurrence. Apparently the monument is built in conjunction with the solstice alignment.
    • If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere today is actually the shortest day of the year. This is due to the Earth’s orbit of the sun and its current angle. No worries though, you can still celebrate by taking advantage of the extra darkness and getting plenty of rest & relaxation. Yes… we’re a little jealous ;-)

     

    So, with it being the longest day of sunlight you know what that means- you should have plenty of time to accomplish everything you need! Just kidding, we all know that even though we have the sun on our side, that doesn’t mean our bodies are up for the challenge. Do what you can and remember to try and sleep in a little later tomorrow. Today may be filled with more daylight, but with that comes the shortest night of the year… Eeek!

    Lastly, don’t forget that with summertime comes the hot, steamy sun. You may want to use the extra time today to stock up on summer compression wear as the warmer days will be here before you know it. A popular summer pick amongst our customers are the Medi Sheer & Soft Thigh Highs in the open toe option. They’re comfortable & breathable, and work great with summer dresses & sandals. Looking for something with a little more spunk? Consider our new Sheer Dot Knee Highs in buff; they’re quickly becoming a favorite for summer business attire.

  • Mother's Day 2013 Gift Ideas - Treat Mom to Rest, Relaxation, and HealthyLegs!

    Not sure what to get Mom this Mother’s Day? Don’t worry, there’s still time to tell her how much she means to you.

    Moms are always taking care of others so why not remind her to make some time for herself? We love the idea of putting together a spring-themed pamper package made entirely from items geared towards rest & relaxation. She’s always telling you that you do too much and need to take some time out for yourself. Here’s your chance to turn the tables and really emphasize how much you appreciate her and all that she accomplishes. Sure the daily phone calls to say hello and see what you had for lunch can be somewhat overzealous at times, but you know a cheerful “howdy” from Mom is guaranteed to brighten anyone’s day.

    For this Mother’s day, instead of running out to grab her a gift card that’s she’s sure to spend on your brother Johnny’s lunch, put together something that clearly says “This is for all you do and it’s all about you, Mom!”

    We scoured our brains and put together a list of some essentials we think would make a thoughtful gift, or at the very least, get your creative juices flowing so you can create a similar gift that’s just as wonderful, for your Mom.

     MOm

    Consider a summery-beach-style rattan bag, stuffed to the brim with all the necessities for a relaxing day at the spa or hanging poolside at home. Venture to your local shopping center, preferably one that has a few different stores to choose from and round up the following:

    • Oversized Beach Tote to hold all the goodies.
    • Gel eye mask to soothe puffy swollen eyes and give mom that extra wink of sleep:
    • Massage and Spa pack, which includes an assortment of lotions and scrubs, &even a massaging brush to help mom carry out the home leg treatment.
    • Comfortable & cute new sandals for mom to throw on after primping is complete.
    • Support Pantyhose that will help keep her legs feeling great long after they’ve been pampered, plus they’re stylish too.
    • Add a final touch with a personal card handwritten to Mom- Hallmark has them too, but you can always say it better.

    No more procrastinating. Remember .... just as Momma always said, “You can do it!”

  • Spring Into Compression

    Spring is just around the corner and with the change in weather comes a change in wardrobe.  While most woman make a quick trip to the mall to brush up on this season’s latest trends, those of us compression wearers find the trip to be more difficult.  We’ve listed below a few outfits below for the versatile, modern compression garment wearer as the Spring season finally begins.

    The Working Woman

    1

    With today’s versatility in fashion, it’s become more and more feasible to balance professionalism with a chic sense of style.  Having said that, many working women have come to find this to be a bit difficult, especially when trying to incorporate compression hosiery and the stereotypical limitations that come with it.  RejuvaHealth’s signature collection throws out all of the stereotypes and simplistically allows for a fashionable and sophisticated look that’s perfect for the workplace.  Pictured below are the RejuvaHealth Sheer Dot Pantyhose, a crisp white, classic and casual tuxedo dress and some strong heals.

    The Wedding Guest

    2

    With wedding season fast approaching and the temperature outside rising, finding an outfit to wear can be quite the dilemma – especially if you’re restricted to compression hosiery.  It’s always important to remember comfort when choosing your outfit of choice.  Weddings require a lot of sitting, a lot of eating and a lot of dancing – the last thing that you want to worry about is a wardrobe malfunction halfway through the buffet table.  Keep things simple and feminine while at the same time being seasonally appropriate.  Pictured below are the Solidea Magic 140 Sheer Pantyhose, a beautiful lace blouse, an adorably printed skirt, a simple clutch, and a pair of black pumps.

    The Errand Runner 3

    Running a quick errand is easier said than it is done.  Sure, you could just jump in the car in your sweatpants and a baggy t-shirt.  Although, any casual trip to the grocery store can turn into one of the biggest social events of the month.  It’s worth the extra effort of looking a bit more presentable in account of the unavoidable.  With the right outfit, you can actually pull off the effortless look with your compression knee highs.  Pictured below are RejuvaHealth’s Opaque Diamond Knee Highs, a cozy pair of loose slacks, a denim button up (with a slight front tuck), a comfortable pair of flats and the perfect tote.

     

    **All of these items can be purchased online at Net-a-Porter or at RejuvaHealth

  • On Your Mark...Jet Set...GO!

    Traveling can be a very transportal experience — literally.  Regardless of where you are headed, your trip begins the second you walk out of your front door… so, why are you still wearing your beat-up sweats to the airport? To make your adventure feel all the more special (and save space in your suitcase!),your traveling outfit should be as put-together as what you're going to be wearing on your trip. No need to sacrifice comfort, though — there are plenty of strategically cozy pieces that are mega stylish, as well. Now, put down those shearling boots and step away from the velour: We've put together a mini lookbook to satisfy your traveling needs.

    International

    1

    Cozy, comfy pants and loose V-Neck, a bomber jacket, a light scarf, RejuvaHealth’s travel friendly knee highs, the perfect rollaway, and a classic pair of flats – this outfit has the potential to take you anywhere, while at the same time keeping the changing climates (and cultures) in mind.

     

     

    Domestic

     2

    A light carry on is a must, a pair of boyfriend jeans, a soft striped shirt, a lightweight jacket, converse sneakers and RejuvaHealth’s travel friendly knee highs --  this outfit is just enough preparation for some kind of delay (knock on wood).  It comfortable yet still cute enough to wear for two days!  What better than way to show your patriotism with some stripes, converse and a (less obnoxious) red jacket?!

    Here are some helpful travel tips:

    • Always pack the essentials in your carry on – toothbrush, change of clothes, face wipes, deodorant – you can never trust estimated time of arrivals...for you OR your luggage.
    • Wear compression socks – during a long flight, your legs can get restless and achy from the poor circulation you’re getting from sitting too long (not to mention the altitude).  This is an easy and preventive measure for health issues that can be sparked when flying.
    • Bring some type of entertainment (I.e. a book, headphones, i-pad).  The flight magazines get boring after a while – trust me.
    • Choose your seat ASAP – the instant you book your flight, choose your seat.  Flights are becoming more crowded now and the only thing worse than getting stuck beside a smelly person is getting stuck in between two smelly people.
  • Prepping Yourself (Mentally) for a Healthier You in 2013

    Like much of the population, you’ve probably made a New Year’s Resolution.  Similarly, like much of the population, you probably end up breaking it after a few months.

    At RejuvaHealth, we’re all for helping you renew yourself – whether it’s by providing you with your favorite new compression legwear or just offering some helpful lifestyle tips.  So, for the many of you whose resolution is to “lose weight” or “get healthier”, we’ve comprised a few tips that will help you to mentally stay strong throughout the entire year.

    Declare the New Year as a Fresh Start

    You only get this chance once a year.  It’s like being able to press the reset button on your life (well, almost). This seems easy, right?  That is, until you head back to work with six additional pounds of holiday weight and can’t think of anything better than the couch and Breaking Bad on Netflix when five o’clock rolls around. Envision your life the way you want to see it – active and happy.  The option is solely up to you.  Empowering, right?  Open up the windows, power up your record player, pour a glass of wine (singular), relax, and cook a delicious and healthy meal.  It’s time to break free of habit.

    Work Up to Something

    For the lucky few that are still college, spring break is just around the corner –go join an aerobics class. For the rest of us…what the heck is spring break?  If you’re looking to make a sharp three-sixty turn on your work out regimen, one of the simplest things you can do is sign up for a 5K race, color run, or mud run.  Running is a great way to increase the circulation in your legs and is a great cardio source for burning fat. An actual event will allow you to mark an official start and end date, making it possible to easily plan a day-to-day work out plan.  Once it’s complete, set a time goal for your next race and continue to work your way up.

    Find a Workout Buddy

     Whether it be your partner, best friend, or random person on Craigslist (we don’t judge), having someone to work out with causes you to become more accountable and makes your work out more enjoyable.  Cheating was a thrill in grade school, but this is your work out we’re talking about here…pretty serious.  This person will keep your head in the game and give you a reason to get up in the morning.  They will push you to your limits and you will do the same for them.  It will be your most productive social hours, ever.

    Stay (Almost) Away from the Scale

     Keeping up with your weight can be extremely discouraging at first and, in some cases, can cause you to give up.  Our advice is to start with an initial weigh-in to get familiarized with where you are and set your goals for where you want to be.  It’s then a good idea to put the scale away for the first month of your workout and/or diet.  You sometimes don’t see the numbers go down on the scale, but after a few weeks of sticking to the schedule, you will feel it.  After the month is up, weigh yourself again.  If you’ve been strict on yourself, you’ve lost a pound or three.  This will give you the extra boost you need towards reaching your weight loss goal.  From there on out, gradually start to bring the scale out more often to keep you on track.

    In 2013, we challenge you to finally become the person you want to be by being one of the few to stick with your New Year’s Resolution.  It won’t be easy, but before you know it, this challenge will begin turn into a lifestyle and you will be exactly where you’re supposed to be.

  • RejuvaHealth to Offer its Health-Conscious Hosiery on QVC

    (Lake Forest, CA – March 1, 2012) – RejuvaHealth, a company specializing in fashionable alternatives to traditional medical compression stockings, today announced they will be featuring six items from their latest line of patterned support tights on QVC next week. The innovative new collection of support hosiery is designed for health-conscious women of all ages and is aimed at providing benefits beyond those offered by traditional socks and pantyhose.

    Company founder, Kelsey Minarik, is scheduled to debut light support variations of their patterned compression knee highs (QVC Item # A219628) & pantyhose (QVC Item #A219629) during the “Anything Goes with Rick & Shawn” show on QVC March 6 at 10PM (EST). QVC customers will have the opportunity to choose from three fun patterns, including a  “Sheer Floral,” “Sheer Dot,” and “Opaque Diamond” in sizes small through x-large during the airing. In addition, the new collection of RejuvaHealth support tights will be available on the company’s e-store at www.rejuvahealth.com.

    Unlike normal fashion hosiery, RejuvaHealth’s tights are FDA-listed Medical Support Stockings containing graduated compression. Graduated compression can help mediate leg discomfort, reduce feelings of heaviness and tiredness in the legs, relieve leg swelling, energize legs, and combat occupational swelling & fatigue occurring from prolonged sitting or standing. The stockings are ideal for anyone seeking relief from these conditions and also provide a playful alternative to support styles offered by other companies.

    Minarik was inspired to design the style-conscious support tights after being diagnosed with a leg condition for which her doctor recommended their use. Seeking relief, she began using the garments and immediately fell in love with the benefits they provided. “Initially after seeing how effectively the garments worked for me, I couldn’t believe more women didn’t know about these ‘super stockings’ and take advantage of their powerful benefits,” says Minarik. “I learned later that appearance was the product’s major downfall. Most compression stockings are only available in opaque, beige, or orthopedic looking styles,” she explains.

    Determined to overcome this dilemma but unable to find anything on the existing market to satisfy her search for both fashion & function, Minarik developed her own. She launched the company’s debut line in December of 2010 and has continued to expand the brand’s offerings via additional product development in the year since. “Our stockings are ideal for the on-the-go woman who wants accessories that work as hard as she does. Why wear normal stockings, when you can wear tights that flatter your figure, complete your outfit, and renew your legs too?” quotes Minarik.   “I’m thrilled that we can now offer these many benefits to customers of QVC.”

    RejuvaHealth, LLC is a California-based company specializing in the design of fashionable alternatives to traditional medical compression stockings. Their products are offered in three styles: knee high, thigh high, and pantyhose as well as 2 different compression levels: 15-20 mmHg (mild support) & 20-30 mmHg (moderate support). For more information and to order products, visit www.rejuvahealth.com or call 877-7-REJUVA.

     

  • Natural Remedies for Improving Leg Circulation

    It’s Friday.  Apart from the occasional incoming call and the constant ticking of that annoying clock hanging on the wall beside your desk, the office is completely silent.  Unavoidably, your mind wonders away with conversing thoughts:  “What am I going to wear tonight?”, “Is Bigfoot real?”, “Wow, I should really shave my legs.”, and finally “These peanuts are making me thirsty!”.  Immediately, you jolt up from your miserably uncomfortable chair and attempt to make your way to the water fountain to refill your glass.  About .25th’s of a second later, your legs give out and you fall completely on your face.  “Asleep.  My legs are asleep!” you think.  Miserably embarrassed, you shake it off and try to play it cool in front of the rest of your co-works.  For the rest of the day, Barb, the older receptionist, insists on checking in on you every hour to see if you’re “doing okay”.  Sweet gesture, but can everyone just forget about it?  No chance.

    Although most people think that their leg falling isn’t a big deal, it can be, especially if it happens often.  Sitting down for long periods of time can cause a loss of leg circulation and affect the nerve endings in that general area.  To prevent any serious medical issues from arising, compression legwear is always a good option.  But, if you don’t want to be confined to anything for the sole purpose of prevention, there are a few other options to improve your circulation.  Hold the drugs--these suggestions are “au natural” and everyone knows that’s soooo “in” right now.

    Exercise

    Pretty obvious, right?  Mmm hm.  In the wise words of Nike, “Just Do It.”. Get up early before work and take in the beautiful day that’s ahead of you by going on a small run or walk.  Not a morning bird?  Good news, the time is about to change, making it brighter earlier, so you won’t be able to sleep in anyway!  Believe me, you will feel so much better about yourself mentally and physically, making your day that much better.

     

     

    Herbs

    Two words: Butcher’s Broom.  I know what you’re thinking--Halloween’s over, right?  Yes, it is…but this is no hocus-pocus!  The herb Ruscus Aculeatus, taken three times a day, can be just as effective as prescription medication without any of the side effects.  Herb-a-liscious!

    Supplements and Food

    Although the Flintstone vitamins are delicious, they just aren’t going to cut it.  Try taking vitamins C and E along with an anti-oxidant.  They specifically help to reduce the symptoms of poor circulation throughout the legs.  Not too fond of taking a vitamin?  Head to the farmers market and pick up fresh peppers, broccoli, strawberries, nuts, blueberries and beans!  Definitely a random list, but with a few additional ingredients you can really turn things around!

     

  • Style Your Stockings: Date Night 101 for your 60's +

    Date Night 101

    You have worked hard to get to where you are today.  Now is the time to enjoy yourself and be proud of what you have accomplished in life.  For the past couple years, you and your husband have been donating to the ballet.  In return, you receive spectacular seats to all of the performances.  It’s opening night of Coppelia, and you and your husband have been really looking forward to attending.  But, your legs have been bothering you all day.  You know that you won’t be able to wear just any compression legwear with your evening outfit.  Thankfully, there’s RejuvaHealth.   Start with the RejuvaHealth sheer dot pantyhose.  They grace the overall outfit with taste and style while giving it a touch of youthfulness in the pattern (you don’t feel old…why dress like it?).   Keep things comfortable and classy with a flared black skirt that hits right below the knees.  Go with a beautiful white blouse to tuck into the skirt.  This allows for versatility when accessorizing the rest of the outfit.  Because it’s an evening affair, we decided to dress things up with the color gold.  A belt really brings the totality of the look together.  Because the rest of the outfit is so simple, we’ve chosen a pearl-encrusted belt that will fit right at the waist line, allowing for a slim, sleek and fashionable finish.   We are in the midst of fall, so the nights tend to get fairly cold.  Therefore, a lovely gold-buttoned cape will work perfectly since it’s easily accessible if you are planning on removing it once you get inside.   If you are looking to keep the height of your shoes at a minimum, a pointed black ballet flat is the ticket; you are at a ballet after all.  Although they add no height, they are still elegantly dressy and comfortable.  Finish off the outfit with a gold purse.  Don’t forget to bring your binoculars; you may have the best seats in the house, but you never know if you’ll need them. Sure, you’ve lived a lot over the past sixty years…but you’re not done yet!
