Beauty, Health, and Lifestyle

Beauty is something that everyone loves. We all love to look our best when it comes to either going out with your friends, your job, or even just simply because you want to look your best all of the time. Beauty is one of the most common things in the world because it’s a language that many people can speak and share with one another. Most of the time we hate to say it, but it’s women because they always come up with the latest and greatest styles on the market. There is absolutely nothing guys can do about it except envy them for it because they always look their best even when they aren’t trying to. It’s just their common nature. Now I’m here to discuss what types of cosmetics and hottest trends will make you the most beautiful in the way you want them to be.

One question on everybody’s minds is “How do you do this, but stay on an affordable budget and why do people do it?”I can tell you that people do it because they always want to stay hip and young and stay in the game with the younger generations. A huge thing people do is to be something that they’re not and then when they try to act like it, they feel insecure and terrible on the inside that they’re doing it in the first place. The other question is how do you stay on a affordable budget and still get the accessories, cosmetics, and fashion items that you want?I’ll tell you that you should count the amount of money you have and divide it up evenly and make sure your not going over your budget at all. I always found that if I’m going to buy a product I should look how much it is and how much I have in my pocket.

Another huge key element is if you feel comfortable with what your doing to yourself and if it makes you feel bad or not? When it comes to beauty, you always want to get what makes you feel comfortable and if you like the way you look then you need to just go with your first instinct. If you ever see celebrities on TV and like the ad and want the product that they are advertising and it is too much for you and out of your budget, than what you could do is find a similar product, but cheaper than the original that was on TV. If you do it that way you could possibly end up saving money and getting more things that you wanted and by following the same process. Well sure they won’t be the same exact products as you wanted, but they will be very similar to each other.

Another thing that a lot of people worry about is their age. As a matter of fact your age has nothing to do with it and no matter what age you are you can always turn yourself around and find the greatest fashions in your own age group. There are plenty of older people that look great and keep track of themselves very well. It doesn’t matter how old or how young you are, but the biggest factor is your health and how well you take care of yourself. A lot of people think though that women are always the more stylish ones, but that’s actually true, but believe me there are plenty of stylish guys out there as well, but women we have to hand it over to you because you guys always do look the best whenever we are around you, so are hats are off to you on this. Things though that can make a difference are like some exercise 3-4 times a week or even 60 minutes a day, and the biggest thing to improve your look are cosmetics and those can make you look so much better, but it also depends on the products that your putting on yourself. Basically in so many words what you want to do with the things you get are yours to mess around with. Another important factor is the way you take care of yourself. No matter what age you are, you should always take care of your body and make sure nothing bad happens to it.

Proven Techniques For Natural Beauty & Health

With global warming and the green movement on a vast majority of peoples minds, then it is no surprise that trying to help the environment, themselves and very importantly their pockets, people are discovering that making natural beauty and health recipes at home will help in every way. Buying “natural” beauty products in the shops tends to be more expensive than buying their toxic counterparts; but by making them at home you will save money and the environment. Who doesn’t want to do that?   Most people who decide to make their own natural beauty products have little or no experience. This is where most people get discourages, where do they start, what do they need, what quantities etc., etc. This is the point where most people give up before they have even started and they go back to buying the toxic commercial products and their planet destroying habits.

Firstly when deciding to make your own natural beauty recipes you should do some research.

If something is worth doing then it’s worth doing a little work. The internet of course is a great resource in finding out about the different ingredients used in the recipes. You can find out about tips and tricks from people who have made the recipes before. You can learn from other people’s mistakes and experiences before

attempting to make the recipes yourself. My philosophy is why learn the hard way learn from other peoples mistakes!   Buy a good reference book of natural beauty and health recipes. You won’t always be next to a computer when you are in the middle of one of your creation. Having a good reference book on essential oils is a must, since in a lot of recipes these are frequently used.

A personal tip – always keep on hand a bottle of lavender essential oil when you are in the kitchen. Lavender and Tea Tree are the only two essential oils that can be used on the skin without diluting. Lavender is extremely useful if you get a burn in the kitchen. You are lifting out something from the oven and you catch you arm. Put on a drop of lavender and the burning sensation will immediately disappear and the burn will heal without scarring. PLEASE NOTE however DO NOT use lavender on a large burnt area of skin or where there is blistering. Seek medical advice.

Quite frequently natural beauty recipes are cooked therefore you will need to purchase separate pans to use exclusively for your recipes. The family will not thank you if their veggies taste like lavender! Furthermore some of the ingredients in these recipes will do wonders for your skin but can cause serious problems if ingested. It is almost impossibly to get a pan completely clean of oils and residue once you have used it for your beauty recipes.

Once you are ready to start on your beauty recipes, make sure you have all your pans and ingredients as well, of course, as your recipe. Make sure you keep the area you are working on clean and free from spills. Make sure you have all the containers that you plan to store your products in ready and waiting.

Low Carb Diabetic Diet

Diabetes is an illness that is characterized when the body is unable to produce insulin or when the body is not able to respond to the insulin produced in the body. The result of this is high blood sugar content inside the body. That is why, diabetics are required a low carb diabetic diet, which can help regulate blood sugar levels inside the body.

It is a common misconception that the only food that diabetics cannot eat is sugar. That is not true, if there is one thing that diabetics have to look out for is the high amount of carbohydrates inside their bodies. This is because high carbo food such as rice, bread and flour and starch in potatoes, corn and other crops can cause a huge spike in the blood glucose level inside the body. What doctors usually prepare for diabetics are diets with less carbohydrate, but more on vegetables and healthy grains and fiber.

Also, maintaining a low carb diabetic diet can help some diabetics restore the balance of their blood sugar levels and insulin medication. Why is that? Insulin is essentially a hormone that helps in breaking down fats and glucose in the body. Without insulin, the body’s sugar in the blood is not broken that causing sugar to remain in the blood. With a low carb diet, glucose in blood is significantly decreased, therefore the diabetic person can further regulate or even reduce her insulin intake.

The low carb diabetic diet can help a patient decrease his blood sugar level and improve his condition. As mentioned, less carbohydrates means less sugar in the blood. But apart from that, the low carb diet can help a patient lose a lot of weight. And by losing weight, a patient is already on the way to improvement. This is because losing weight can extremely reduce glucose in the blood. In conclusion, to be able to improve a diabetic’s health, eating low carbohydrate diet is the way to go because it can improve he diabetic’s body reducing body weight and blood glucose.

Beauty Health Hazards

Your body is a vessel, a very fragile vessel that you must take good care of. Your good figure, nice skin, fabulous hair; Yes it’s all young now. However, 30 years from now…will it still look and feel the same? Will you still feel as young and energetic? Will you be able to look like before? Although it is a fact that looks change with time, using the wrong things on your body does not help at all. There are so many things we do with our body without the thought of tomorrow. That is why it is all also essential that we find out exactly what substances were putting in our bodies.

Face Care
Do you normally use anti-ageing creams, acne and scar removers or anti blemish products. If you do, like most of us, you should check the label. You might find several unwanted visitors on the label like Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHA and Beta Hydroxy Acids or BHA. If these substances are on the label, you better chuck it out now. Many complaints for the products with these substances include inflammation, burning sensation and pain on the affected areas. If you find that you are experiencing this the first thing to do is to flush the affected area with water, then wipe it with a clean cloth and rush yourself to the E.R to get immediate treatment. It is highly suggested that you use products with trusted brand names. Also consult with a dermatologist to know your skin type and what the best types of face care products suit you.

Hair Care
The hair is the crowning glory. Women always aspire for shiny, smooth and healthy hair. So we bombard our hair with regular trips to the salon, or buy hair kits promising healthy and beautiful hair, but do we even know what is in the shampoos, conditioners, oils, creams and especially hair dyes that we use? Recent studies show that hair dyes could actually make us more prone to a type of cancer on the lymph nodes. The study also shows that most women who color their hair darker are more prone to this disease. So I guess blondes do have more fun. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended that you opt for more natural or organic based products like coconut shampoos or aloe Vera hot oils. A great way to protect your scalp before treatments is also the use of petroleum jelly.

Skin Care
Many people desire to have whiter skin. Well if you’re using bleaching creams for a long time you might be prone to a disorder where the skin becomes bruised like on the area continuously treated. If this is happening to you discontinue use and contact a dermatologist. You also have to check the labels of your lotions and other skin care products for Phthalates. This substance causes high risk of birth defects for unborn children, reproductive health problems for men and women which increase the risk for cancer. It is suggested that you use whitening and skin softeners with an organic or natural base like papayas, milk, honey and such.

Nail Care
Based on my personal experience, it is always and I mean always a must to make sure your nails get the cleanest treatment from nail salons. Several salons have unsanitary methods when it comes to nail care because they only have 1 or 2 sets of tools for all of their customers. It is better to go to pricey nail salons if it means sterile tools will be used. Always remember that in nail care there are times when you accidentally get cut so that is already an opening where bacteria can enter. Several undesired effects would be bacterial infections, allergies, warts and even yeast infection. So you better make sure your nails are as squeaky clean as they are cute.
