4 Reasons Why Weight Management Hypnosis Will Be Valuable For You


- No comments
The desire to release weight could well be the number one desire in the developed world. And there are probably more different ways to supposedly solve the issue, than ever before, and yet here we are in 2017 with a greater obesity problem than ever, plus there is more diabetes and more people frustrated about their weight than ever before.

Using hypnosis for weight management is the perfect way to make your healthy diet and exercise work faster and better. But the main reason hypnosis helps is by bi-passing all the reasons that you have not succeeded up until this point.

So where is your barrier to weight loss?

Emotional eating. You know how it works, you have a bad day, someone upsets you, you get bad news or your teenager is driving you nuts? So outcome your favorite comfort foods. Chocolate, cookies, pasta, alcohol, cola, salty snacks, etc.

You eat or drink way to much in an attempt to feel better, but after the initial moments of taste pleasure, you just keep shoveling it in, until you realise you ate the whole lot!

Now you feel bad, you over ate, you let yourself down again and your original problem still exists.

Food addiction. The most common is for sugary foods but some people are stuck with the savory snacks. Addiction implies that this is some difficult problem to solve which may require you moving into a rehabilitation centre and bonding with cocaine addicts.

The truth is that sugar does bind to the same receptors in the brain that cocaine does, firing off feelings of pleasure.

But quitting sugar is absolutely not like quitting cocaine. Even the most hard core sugar fans can walk away from it with some help.

Slow Metabolism. When I conduct seminars I ask how many people have a slow metabolism. Most put their hands up. Then I ask who can point to their metabolism, and of course no one can.

Your metabolic rate is governed by a number of important systems and some of these such as your thyroid can be measured and medicated. But there is a simple fact. To gain weight, i.e. make and deposit fat you need to consume the food to do it.

Picky Eaters. From my perspective a picky eater is someone who for some reason has never developed the desire for a variety of foods, and this has turned into a belief that doesn't serve them nutritionally.

All 4 areas are successfully managed by hypnosis allowing you to get on with being healthy and losing weight.

How To Lose Weight Fast

Introduction

Have you ever thought upon seeing yourself in the mirror that perhaps you could physically look a little bit better if not a lot better than you do? You're not alone in your thinking if this is the case!

Our craving for fatty foods and lack of exercise is a growing concern all over the world, especially amongst North Americans, and the statistics say our health is going down the tubes... fast! There was a time when we could indulge because we worked hard in our physically demanding jobs, particularly heavy labour, which meant calories would be burned throughout the course of the day as we exhausted ourselves from morning to night.

This is not the case now. With the rising popularity of computers and video games and also with kids spending more and more time surfing endlessly on social networking groups as opposed to spending time outdoors, things are looking rough not only for the current generation but the generations to follow which will all be exposed to the same lifestyle which we all enjoy... (and suffer through without truly knowing it).

Unfortunately at our expense, the weight-loss industry is booming with it's mass marketing of bogus ineffective, instant-results, fat-loss products. People pour tens of millions of dollars into this industry thinking they will get the results advertised. But truth be told, there is no such thing as instant results nor do these diet fads truly work.

Only one thing works in life and that is hard-work! But it's not anywhere near as hard as you think. It's a case of seeing through hype and forcing yourself to accept reality as it is and to then go forward with a positive attitude and make an effort.

A simple diet and a bit of exercise can net you unbelievable results! Most people tend to quit when they don't see results right away but it takes time for results to happen as nothing is immediate. This is where willpower is required, to help you stay on track. If you can stay focused on your goal to lose weight and get in shape, you will succeed.

The following steps are laid out to help you achieve those goals. Simply keep your eyes on the prize, stay focused, maintain a positive attitude and watch the weight come off!

How Much Do You Need?

How much food are you consuming daily? How much high-calorie or fatty foods are you eating without truly knowing it? The best way to identify where things are going wrong in your eating habits is to begin looking at the nutrition facts on the packages of the food you're eating and to record them in a daily log for about a week. By doing this, you will be able to analyze where you are going wrong and where you will need to improve to get the results you want.

The unfortunate reality is that we cater to our taste buds instead of worrying about proper nutrition. This is what leads to weight gain and ultimately, obesity. What's worse is that fast-food is far more convenient for most people than spending time in the kitchen cooking up a good dish. Society's need for convenience is a big reason for the growing statistics of obesity which is still rising.

This is why it's so important as a first step to take note of the foods you are putting into your body so that you can analyze the areas which require the most attention. You will discover by observing the nutritional value of the foods you are consuming exactly what is causing you to pack on the pounds. From there, it means you can then begin diminishing your fat intake and replacing the fatty foods with slightly healthier foods.

A pound of fat consists of 3500 calories so in order to lose a pound of fat weekly, you would need to cut off 500 calories from your diet. If you are eating approximately 3000 calories per day, you could lose weight by wiping out 500 calories from the 3000 which you are consuming by either replacing your unhealthy meals with healthier meals and/or incorporating some exercise into your daily regime. By taking out those 500 unhealthy calories, you are then down to 2500 and on top of that, you decide to put in a half hour or 45 minutes of running, biking or an elliptical. Another 500 calories off puts you down to 2000 calories for the day just with less than an hour of cardio-training and a healthier choice of meal. At the end of the week, that will be 2 lbs of unnecessary weight off your body... and chances are you'll be feeling much better both mentally and physically.

Not only do you build up a great sweat during your training, your heart and entire body gets a great workout in the process which means heading toward a healthier lifestyle.J As always, eating less or picking out a healthier choice of foods crossed with a bit of exercise can get you some seriously good results which not only gives you more self-confidence but also a vote of confidence from your family and friends.

The worst thing you can do is crash diet which is the drastic measure of going on a food strike in hopes that you'll drop excessive weight quickly! This only leads to disaster as you experience hunger pains, causing your body to feast off your muscle tissue and then eventually, you go into a serious eating binge.

The tried and tested method of eating healthier foods and incorporating exercise into your day will always guarantee results for the better.

A Healthier Choice!

Once you've discovered the amount of unnecessary calories you are consuming on average, you will then need to decide where to make adjustments in your diet so that healthier foods will prevail over fatty foods.

If you were to take the example of McDonald's' Big Mac which packs not only a ton of calories but a lot of bad ingredients with it, you may consider downsizing to a hamburger which, although still not a healthy food by any means, is much lower in calories and easier on the health.

Let's also take the example of a flame-broiled Whopper at Burger King which is actually bigger than the Big Mac. A single Whopper with cheese contains over

750 calories and almost 50 grams of fat. One could save 480 calories and about 36 grams of fat simply by downsizing to a mayo-free junior-sized Whopper. Discard the larger-sized fries for a smaller portion and you will have saved yourself from consuming a lot of excess calories. If you're still feeling a little bit hungry, why not go for a bowl of grapes or an apple instead of a second burger?

Some fast-food restaurants have been making an attempt to offer healthier food including KFC which offers not only fried chicken but also grilled chicken. A KFC grilled chicken breast and drumstick mixed with mashed potatoes and gravy can go for well under 400 calories and just over 12 grams of fat. On the flip side, the extra crispy chicken breast which taste-wise is not particularly better than the regular fried chicken according to some, goes for nearly 500 calories and over 30 grams of fat after having sat in the deep fryer for a longer amount of time.

If you need a quick fix but also something tasty and you find pizza as a very pleasing convenience, try a thin-crust at Domino's with ham and pineapple instead of pepperoni. That will be around 200 calories you'll have just saved from entering your body.

One must also not disregard the joy of quenching thirst with a massively-calorieridden milkshake! It tastes amazingly good but thankfully they are offered at different sizes which means despite the fact that you can still enjoy your favourite milkshake, you can also go for a smaller sized cup. For example, a triple-thick strawberry shake at the king size goes for over 1000 calories! A small-size goes for 420 calories. If you need your shake, go for the small size. If you want to trim your waistline then discard the shake and order an orange juice! J

Let's also not forget breakfast! People during the early-morning rush hour need a decent breakfast to energize themselves and gather their bearings for another long day in the office mixed with a tedious commute back and forth. The very popular Egg McMuffin is a popular breakfast amongst Americans but it also contains 300 calories. On the other hand, the English Muffin is half that. This is when you make the choice of going for the relatively less-fattening order. Despite the fact that none of it is healthy, even making a choice of down-sizing your portion or going for the healthier dish can make all the difference on the road to losing weight.

Americans have a deep fascination with fast-food. Fast-food means not just food on the go but also convenience because it's much easier to go into a drive through as opposed to rummaging through the fridge and trying to put together a decent meal. So why go to the trouble of cooking your own food when fast-food is so easy to get access to considering it's all around you, wherever you go.

As before, even if fast-food is convenient, one can still pick out healthier foods on the menu. Much like downsizing portions from large-sized to small-sized, you can slowly pick out healthier foods or mix your usual choices up from time to time.

Every food contains the nutritional value on the package so it's always best to analyze what you are putting into your body. When you keep a close eye on what you eat, there is really no excuse for blaming the fast-food industry or anybody else for your unhealthy shape or inability to lose weight. Fast-food is a convenience but you alone are responsible for what you eat and you have a choice which is why it's best when starting off on the path to a healthier lifestyle to keep a close watch on the foods you eat.

Furthermore, losing weight is only the beginning. Weight can creep back up if you neglect your improved eating habits after a while. Snacking on junk food is OK if it's limited while you still maintain a quality healthy diet. Satisfying a craving is not at all a bad thing but making sure you stick to a reasonably healthy diet while doing some exercise daily is essential to improving your shape on the road to ultimately a healthier body and a healthier lifestyle.

Reducing Your Portions!

Spreading out meals into smaller portions as opposed to eating enormous meals at any one time is a major factor in losing weight. It's been proven that rationing your meals not only reduces your caloric intake throughout the day but it also helps to steady your metabolism. If you're in the habit of eating 2-3 massive meals daily, consider eating 6-7 smaller meals which are spread out throughout your day.

One thing people enjoy doing is eating right from the packet as opposed to taking out what they need and putting the packet away. Such an example is eating out of a mega-sized packet of potato chips. Not only do you have no idea how much you are consuming, but typically you're satisfying a craving by eating more than you really need until you are completely satisfied when instead you could pour a small portion into a bowl and add a piece of fruit to get the amount of food you actually need.

Super-sized packets are more commonplace now than before. More items are sold in bulk and more foods are served at restaurants with the option to supersize for a few extra cents. Increased portions are a factor in the rising statistics for obesity. There is always a cause but people put enjoyment ahead of anything else which naturally leads to a health risk. This is why rationing meals are a handy way to take control of your bad habits. It takes discipline to make adjustments and there's really no reason why people must feel they should eat until they're full. As always, tiny servings are fine and if still peckish, add a tiny bit more as opposed to loading your plate and trying to finish it all. Rather than sit around feeling stuffed and undoing your belt buckle, leaving some room so that you can have another small meal a few hours later while still feeling good enough to mix in a little bit of exercise is a good balance which leads to improved results. Doing this helps control the weight and slowly it begins to come down which is a marvellous feeling when you experience it, motivating you to work a little harder as you become confident in your ability to take control of your own body as opposed to allowing your cravings to take control for you.

Fiber... Are You Getting Enough?

What is fiber and why is it important in our diets? Well quite simply, fiber helps lower the risks of some very bad common illnesses and diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, diverticulitis and even stroke. It also controls your urges and desires for needing more food by helping you get the fulfillment you need so that you won't need any more food or as much food as you crave.

The typical amount of fiber intake daily is 30 grams for men and 20 grams for women. Great sources of fiber include fruits and vegetables naturally, beans and whole grain breads. For breakfast cereals, there is a good amount of fiber in Raisin Bran Extra which contains about 7 grams.

Rapidly increasing your fiber is never healthy so if your body is used to consuming roughly between 10-15 grams daily, don't begin eating 30 grams at the offset. The body needs to adapt slowly which means over a month period. There are enough sources of fiber and you can try to shift more towards eating these types of foods and replacing the others which are much lower in fiber.

Juice products as mentioned earlier are much healthier than shakes. But even so, natural fruits like oranges and apples have more fiber and less calories than juice products. You can add fruit to your breakfast including bananas, grapes, etc. You can even add crackers which is a source of fiber. Whole wheat breads, crackers, and some cereals offer a good amount of fiber to start you on your day. You can even include beans into your breakfast or lunch as beans are not only a top source of fiber but also contains protein to help grow muscle.

Hit The Treadmill

Very few people enjoy exercise. Exercising and seeing results is like walking up a hill. It takes an effort which people don't like to give because effort means work. But on the downside, much like coming down the hill, it's easy to pack on the pounds by simply doing nothing. Physical activity can indeed be tough for some because of aching knees or problematic backs, etc. But there are solutions to get some amount of exercise into your day. Whether it's to use a machine like the elliptical instead of running, or whether it's to use the exercise bike instead of biking down trails and rocky terrains, or whether it's to just pick up a tennis racquet and fit a little session into your evenings by hitting with your friends or family, any little bit always helps.

Thanks to technology and video games, there is also the Wii Fit which allows you to participate in fun exercise routines right in your own living room while keeping a measure on your fitness level and calories burned. Adding to that, there are also games like tennis, boxing and bowling which require real-motion movement so you can literally get involved physically while enjoying yourself at the same time.

If you're a novice in the world of exercise, it's unlikely you will be burning 500 or so calories in a single session if your plan is to lose a couple of pounds per week. In the case of a person weighing 165lbs or so, it's unlikely they will lose 500 calories in just a 30 minute session playing football or tennis or going jogging. It would take more of an effort and a longer amount of time to cut that amount of calories. But similarly to spreading out meals, you can also divide up your exercise routines throughout the day and attain your goals.

One of the great things about exercise, specifically cardio-type training is that it can be done during different parts of the day and still get you the same result as you'd get doing one solid continuous workout. If you normally wake up at 6:30am in the mornings to get ready to go to work, consider waking up earlier at perhaps 6:00am and doing a 30 minute run on the treadmill before getting into the shower. Not only will you have done a tremendous workout, you'll be extremely fresh and alert and feeling inspired before heading off to work.

Depending on your level of fitness, a 30 minute run can burn 400-500 calories at a fairly good pace but you can also do a brisk walk which still can burn around 200 or more calories. After work, you may consider going for a walk in the evening time, going cycling or even playing a little sports such as soccer, basketball, tennis... basically anything to help you build up a sweat and get your body working hard.

You may even consider during rainy days or the winter season to get a gym membership and try out the variety of cardio-machines available from the treadmill and the exercise bike to the elliptical, stair climber and rowing machine. Everything there is specifically designed to get your heart pumping and helping you build up a great sweat.J You can always start off slow and build up to a faster pace over the weeks. Never force more out of yourself at the beginning than what your body can handle. You will naturally improve over time and your health will also improve greatly.

Water Is Your Best Friend

It's been suggested by research that you require at least 8 glasses of water daily, but it can depend on your weight regarding how much you actually require. You would need to divide your weight by 2 so as an example, a man weighing 180lbs would need 60 ounces of water in a day.

So why do experts suggest that we drink lots of water and why is it considered so essential to a healthy life? Well first off it helps to avoid dehydration and it keeps the kidneys functioning well by assisting in the elimination of waste products plus it helps to increase your metabolism which helps you to lose weight.

But aside from listening to what experts tell you, you should make it a priority to listen to your body first and foremost. When you are thirsty, then naturally you will drink water to replenish yourself. Depending on the kind of work that you do, you should try to get into the habit of drinking water regularly or even better, keeping a water bottle handy, especially on really hot days since the heat causes you to sweat and your body loses water and thus you will need to replenish yourself.

This is why water is so important in our lives. Not only is it zero calories, it is basically the best source for quenching your thirst AND the healthiest. You may consider adding water to all of your meals over time and doing away with fruit drinks and sodas ultimately as it will help reduce your caloric intake and you'll also feel much better without the added sugar that comes with the other drinks.

Ready... Set... Go!

Everybody thinks they know what to do. They read the material, they realize they need to take action and put in the effort but they seldom do. Unless you discipline yourself to resist the temptation of eating unhealthy foods and motivate yourself to eat healthy foods, you will find it difficult to get on the road to a healthy life.

No amount of reading or saying "Yes, I can do it" will help you unless you take that first step. It takes a strong commitment to get on track and it takes an equally strong commitment to keep at it. Most people give up after a short time because they're not satisfied with their results. If you can commit and keep yourself motivated and continue to aspire to eat well and train well, you will achieve your goal. No matter what the goal is, be it to lose weight or increase your endurance or become a better athlete in a specific sport, you just need to go out there and make the effort and do the work required.

Over the course of time, not only will you mentally adjust to your training regiment but you will develop a great amount of discipline and self-confidence and you will naturally maintain a positive attitude which means easily being able to resist any kind of temptation. Everybody needs to start from somewhere. Setting your goals little by little as opposed to attempting to go all-out and trying to sweat out 10 pounds on the treadmill in the course of a week will do more harm than good. Starting the process slowly is key which means going for a brisk walk to help acclimate your body to the more rigorous runs you plan to do in the lat per weeks.

One mistake people make when starting out is going all out which leads to injury and soon they decide that training is just too painful and taxing. As before, set a schedule and if necessary, consult with a personal trainer about what might be good for you if you feel uncomfortable coming up with a schedule. Although you do not need to make the process so difficult. If your desire is to lose weight, all you really require is a small daily window allotted to your exercise and keeping an eye on what you put in your body.

Simply be confident and work towards your goals. Be positive and you will get the results you want. As we approach Spring, maybe now is a good time to begin developing that plan and taking a course of action so you can get on the road to the super healthy lifestyle you deserve?.

Honey will Help Reduce the Signs of Acne

Acne is a problem for several individuals. From teens going through puberty, to those who have oily skin, to those who suffer from different skin conditions, many remedies, creams, and products are available for treating it. For those who are looking for a natural remedy, which can help reduce signs of acne and help reduce occurrence, honey for acne is one of the many options which you can consider when treating different skin and chronic conditions. These are a few of the many reasons why honey is a natural treatment for acne conditions, and can help reduce the signs and visible scars which acne sufferers typically notice on areas of the skin.

Why use honey for acne treatment?

Hone is a natural solution to acne and other skin conditions for a variety of reasons. Among these include the fact that honey acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial solution. It contains antioxidants, as well as Vitamins B, B3, B6, and B5, along with other natural minerals to help combat different conditions acne sufferers are prone to. It is an antiseptic as well as a natural moisturizing agent, which is one of the key components to helping reduce acne and helping reduce the appearance of acne scars.

How honey helps treat acne -

Honey is a natural treatment or remedy for acne. Whether used as a facial rub, a mask, or simply applying it as a solution with warm water and other natural ingredients, it will help combat acne on the face, and other areas of the body. Honey fights bacterium and acts as a natural antibiotic for the skin. Honey works to heal wounds which are caused by acne, as it works to produce enzymes which are needed to assist in the healing process. As a natural moisturizer, honey can help reduce visible signs of acne and scars on areas of the skin. It reduces sensitivity, puffy skin, redness, and other marks which are typically related to acne as well.

Although there are many over the counter or prescription products you can use in treating acne, for those who wish to find a natural solution, the use of honey for acne treatments is one to consider. The natural solution can work in many ways, can be used in many states (natural raw honey, mask, facial rub, scrub, etc), and its natural healing components, will help reduce signs of acne, scars, and other discomfort which is associated to acne conditions.

Acne Treatments To Get Clear Skin


- 2 comments
Every single case of acne is not the same, and every form of therapy will have a different impact on the skin. A simple over the counter cream may work for one person and prove useless to another. If over the counter creams and facial washes are simply not doing the trick, these tried and true methods will help skin look and feel cleaner than ever before.

Deep pore cleansing

A deep pore cleansing facial can help to cut the bacteria and dirt that builds up underneath the surface of the skin. As the pores are opened, all of this dirt is exposed, and as the face if properly cleansed, it is all rinsed away, resulting in a face that feels fresh and looks amazing. It may need a few of these therapy appointments on a regular basis to see a difference, but this alternative to over the counter treatments is a favorite for acne sufferers everywhere.

Acne laser therapy

This is a great idea for people that have a face that is covered in scars. Instead of being embarrassed to walk down the street, people will begin to see results in as little as a few appointments. These results are known to last longer than other products, which only work as long as people keep using them. There are few side effects, if any, and this method has proven effective on every single skin color, no matter how dark someone's complexion is.

Birth control

This form of acne therapy involves taking birth control pills, which has proven effective against cases that are caused by a hormonal imbalance. Birth control pills help to balance out the hormones, effectively decreasing the number of pimples that pop up overnight and lessening the amount of blemishes. On the downside, when people stop taking the pill, they often find that the pimples start coming back and before long, they have a horrible case of acne again.

Cut back on dairy

Recent studies have confirmed that milk is no longer being bashed for no reason. These studies found that participants that cut back on dairy had fewer acne breakouts than those who did not. This is believed to be caused by the hormones that are found in milk, and there is simply not a milk product that is hormone free. Even organic milks were found to have hormones in recent studies, and skim milk was the worst. Eliminating dairy from the diet, or at least cutting back, can help reduce the number of bits that ruin a good day. This works even better when combined with other forms of therapy.

Other diet and lifestyle changes

Other diet and lifestyle changes can help a lot when it comes to eliminating pimples. Greasy foods are known for contributing to break outs, just like activities that involve touching the face. The hands are covered in bacteria and germs, so simply stopping oneself from touching the forehead can go a long way to preventing pimples from popping up before a big date. Other diet and lifestyle changes that can be beneficial include:

Eat more fruits
Eat more fresh foods
Less grease
Less junk food
Cut back on mild and dairy
Less sugar
No more fast food

No one single method is proven to work on every pimple. Everyone should keep in mind that the average life span of a single zit is around five or six weeks, so it is a wise idea to give new forms of therapy this same amount of time to decide if it is the right plan. Often, a combination of several different things is required. Many sufferers are able to find relief with diet and lifestyle changes, facial peels or treatments, and then a laser option to take care of scars that are already there.

A trial and error process is the only way for individuals to find out what works for them, but it is well worth it in the long run.

Lux Medical Spa is well known for providing the Oxnard area with a wide variety of spa services. A certified make up technician is available for professional make up application, a great idea for every bride on their big day. Acne treatments are available for individuals that would like to get rid of pimples instead of covering them up. Deep pore cleansing facials are available to get rid of bacteria, and laser acne treatment therapy can work wonders at effectively lightening scars that are left from acne.

Why You Can't Lose Weight?


- 2 comments
You can't lose weight even though you're exhausted by diets and exercise? What is it that you are doing wrong?

You are careful about nutrition, you take enough vitamins, lead a healthy life with hours of exercise. But, still, you don't have the body you've always wished for.

Just to feel better - you are not alone. In fact, this problem is quite often. Even though we often blame the genetics and we doubt that the celebrities have secrets about their perfect look, maybe better we should analyze the reasons that cause this phenomenon.

1. You exercise the wrong way

The meaning of the basics - Exercises are supposed to be fun, but if you want to get rid of the fat, you go to the gym. It seems like all of the gym equipment is for men, but it is not true. Some exercise should be kept in the plan no matter how dull they are, like standups and weights exercise.

Cut down the cardio-Most woman think that with cardio exercise they can burn down more calories. That is true. But, they forget that they also take less food. You need weight exercise to burn down the fat.

Dedicate to exercise-On joint train sessions you create friendships, which is great. The bad thing is talking to your friends instead of performing the proper exercises.

2. Your brain thinks you starve yourself

Although we believe that a diet is a good idea, our brain does not agree, but often acts as a victim of starvation, while trying to overcome the strong urge to eat. Studies have shown that people can have psychological consequences of a diet, such as food obsessions and dreams about food. As a result of that, many people return their lost pounds in short term.

3. Diet is a stressful experience

You count your calories, keep your diet journal, you search for healthy meals- and what you get? It's only a few pounds less a month. That's stressful. It seems like you are starving yourself. Counting calories produces stress, which leads to gaining weight. Instead of counting calories, try eating whenever you're hungry and stop eating when you are not. That way you have less chance of gaining weight.

4. Your metabolism works against you

Metabolism is a great thing when you are young, you can eat anything you want and not worry about the consequences. But with age, this significantly changes. When you start the diet, it influences on the metabolism, which can significantly slow down six to seven years after the diet.

5. You listen to your inner voices

There's a reason you're hungry every time you look at a food commercial. The hormone leptin tells the brain how much collected energy is available and reduces the attractiveness of food for those who have a normal amount of energy. Therefore, those who are on a diet and have less energy easily succumb to temptation in front of the images of food.

6. Diet fails in the long run

Surely you sometimes have the impression that you have lost a lot of weight while you were on a diet, but the scale did not confirm it. According to research, even 95 percent of diets fail and most people regain their original weight. It was also found that those who hold a diet are more likely to become obese, primarily because after the diet quickly get fat than muscle.

7. The strength of will is a consumable thing

When you go on a diet, you are determined not to give in to junk food and to hold regular exercise. However, when you are overwhelmed by thoughts of tasty food, you certainly feel envy toward those who can eat what they want and when they want. Therefore, it is relying on willpower hard work for everyone.

8. You don't have a plan

Planning is your greatest ally in the fight against weight. Plan your meals in advance, and days when you eat "forbidden" foods. Knowing what you have for a meal, you will help you in eliminating the temptation. If you do not have healthy options and a plan, you will be tempted to indulge in the things you are trying to avoid. Lack of plan is planning collapse.

9. You don't get enough sleep

If you don't get enough sleep, your body produces hormones that encourage the collection of fat in the body. Studies have shown a link between the amount of sleep that you practice and the number of pounds that you have. A 2004 study at the University of Chicago shows that the dream of most affects the appetite because of the amount of sleep depends on the balance of hormones leptin and ghrelin, which are controllers of appetite. The ideal is to sleep 7-9 hours every night. Easier said than done in our fast- going world, but it's worth the effort!

10. You are dehydrated

Approximately 70% of the human body consists of water. You do not have to be a scientist to understand how important it is to properly hydrate! Water is essential for proper digestion and detoxification - important components of weight loss. Try not to drink water on a daily basis (in liters) approximate amount of 1/5 of your weight. Of course in this calculation insert the consumption of fruits and vegetables.

11. Your hormones aren't balanced

Often hormones can bother to weight loss and it becomes even more difficult than it normally is. High cortisol (hormone of stress) causes increased insulin, which has influence on your appetite-you eat more. Another problem appears when you have dysfunction of the thyroid gland. It can lead to weight gain from a buildup of salt and water in your body. An overactive thyroid is called hyperthyroidism. Many people with it lose weight, but others pick up extra pounds because it can make you feel hungrier. There is, also, a problem when it comes to unbalanced reproductive hormones. That situation can also lead to weight gain and stress.

12. Consuming alcohol

People work hard at the gym, lose weight and gain muscles, but they quickly overturn their efforts by regularly consuming alcohol. Studies have shown that alcohol has a detrimental influence on muscle growth, so all your hard work is negated. Alcohol also contains calories. You can help yourself by making a limit on one to two drinks a few times a week.Or, much better, stop drinking!

13. You are sitting down

Most of us spend our day sitting on our desks at the office. After that you go to the gym and do workouts or exercises that require you to sit down or lay down. When you exercise sitting or lying down, you won't make a significant change in your body structure. Instead, there are many other types of exercise that will give you results more quickly.

14. You skip breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is the way you get all the energy you need during the start of the day. By skipping it you only make it worse. Starting your day eating does not mean that you eat too much. It means that you make sure that you'll do all your work. Studies have shown that people who have muesli for breakfast usually get hungry much faster than people who eat something salty. So, you need to be careful about what you eat for breakfast. There are so many suggestions for healthy breakfast, all you have to do is just pick up.

15. You eat too much for the weekend

We all know that the weekend is the time when we chill out and slow down with our rules. And it includes our diet. We eat all that is forbidden and swear that we'll get it right first thing on Monday. That is a big mistake. If you have been trying - exercising and eating right all week, don't ruin it for the weekend. You will have to start all over again. Don't throw away all your efforts. But, it does not mean that you don't have to treat yourself. For the weekend take something you like to eat, but don't overdo.

16. You are eating outside and not cooking at home

You are used to go to a restaurant or take home food after work. You should not do that, unless you know that they cook healthy and use healthy products. Assume they're using the worst vegetable oils, heavy amounts of butter and oil, and poor-quality produce.Learn to love your kitchen! That way you will be sure exactly what you eat.

17. You're not eating good fats

"Good" or unsaturated fats are found in nuts, avocado and olive-oil. When you eat them you brain gets the message that you're full. These fats appear to trigger the production of a compound in the small intestine called oleoylethanolamide. It reaches nerve endings that carry messages to the brain to curb hunger, and activates a brain circuit that makes you feel full. Just to make sure you have eaten enough, take a handful of nuts a day or one sixth of an avocado.

At times, going the natural way is a good idea, especially for beginners. The key to getting slimmer is to learn some easy tricks. Let's get started.

1. Eat 5 smaller meals per day

Skipping breakfast won't take you anywhere. If you keep on taking breakfast, you will end up overeating at the end of the day. Your body goes without food for several hours before you get up for your breakfast, and your body needs food to get energy for the whole day ahead.

So, the right way is to eat 5 times a day making sure you eat small meals each time. This will boost your digestion and will make it a lot easier for you to get slimmer. Eating one huge meal will put too much stress on your stomach making it harder for your body to absorb essential nutrients.

2. Drink Plenty of Water

Don't drink water when you are thirsty. This will keep you hydrated while flushing out toxins from your body. As a result, you stay energized throughout the day. According to some health experts, even if you are slightly dehydrated, you will get tired quickly. And you can't stay active if you are tired.

According to doctors, you should have at least 3.5 liters of water each day. You don't have to drink that much water, though. Water is found in vegetables and fruits as well. As a matter of fact, you can get around 20% of your required amount of water from fruits and veggies.

3. Eat Fruit Before Leaving Your Home

Before leaving your house, make sure you eat at least one banana or apple. Outside your house, you may or may not have access to healthy stuff. By eating fruit before leaving, you won't be hungry enough to reach for junk food. This habit will keep you away from processed food and you won't gain unhealthy fat.

4. Eat slowly

Naturally thin people have a common habit: They don't eat a lot. Moreover, they don't go for bigger portions. You should adopt the same habit to lose weight. As soon as your body "says" it is satisfied, you should stop eating.

Besides, it helps if you eat slowly. On top of this, eating slowly will also make your food more enjoyable for you.

5. Don't Go for Beverages

Do you binge on sugary sodas, energy drinks or lattes? If so, you should stop. Stuff like this contains a good deal of calories, which is not good for your weight loss plan. What you need to do is go for beverages that contain lower calories. This will be helpful for your weight loss plan.

In short, if you have been desperately looking for natural ways of getting slimmer, you should not look further and try out these 5 tips. Within days, you will see a considerable reduction in your weight.

Four Effective Hair Loss Solutions


- No comments
More than one hundred million Americans struggle with hair loss. Although more common in males, about forty percent of sufferers are female. But regardless of sex, almost all cases of baldness (about 95 percent) are caused by genetic factors. In other words, most folks are destined to lose their locks from birth. With that said, there are steps you can take to slow, stop, even reverse the process. Here are four proven hair loss solutions.

Transplant

Often sought by patients with advanced cases of alopecia (baldness), transplantation is a surgical procedure performed in a doctor's office. The operation involves removing a section of permanent hair from the back of the scalp and using it to fill in areas with no or thinning locks. Although these transplanted strands soon fall out, about 60 percent of them will grow again, leading to a thicker, fuller hairdo. Because the surgery itself is performed by a doctor and takes many hours to complete, it can be quite pricey. It is actually not at all uncommon for patients to spend over $10,000 on the procedure. With that said, most folks are satisfied with the results.

Medications

While there's certainly no shortage of home remedies, only two drugs are considered hair loss solutions by the FDA. Minoxidil is a topical treatment that slows or stops alopecia in about 40 percent of users. Affordable and widely available, it is the only over-the-counter treatment for the common condition. The only significant drawback of using minoxidil is that it must be applied for life.

The second FDA-approved medication is a prescription pill called finasteride. Considered by some users to be slightly more effective than minoxidil, it must also be taken indefinitely. We should also note that finasteride has not been approved for use by women. In fact, one study found it to be no more effective than placebo for female users.

Hairpiece

Easily the oldest solution on our list: wigs. Wigs have been around since the ancient Egyptians. Just as they were back then, hairpieces are fashion accessories that can also be used to conceal total, substantial, even partial baldness. Affordable and easy to find, they can be purchased at most salons and even some drugstores.

Hair Extensions

Whether they are clipped, sewn, glued, fused, or taped in place, extensions can add volume to any hairdo. Although often applied for a fashionable effect, extensions can also be used to cover and conceal thinning areas and bald spots. But because some systems can damage remaining strands, it is important to tell your stylist that you are losing your locks. She can then select extensions that will not endanger your natural hair.

All of the hair loss solutions we discussed today are open to any person struggling with alopecia.

What Is Laser Hair Therapy?


- No comments
Dealing with hair loss can be embarrassing. The reason for the loss does not matter; it could be due to a prolonged illness, or it could be genetic. Non-invasive techniques can help restore what you have lost. Laser hair therapy is one of the many options you have to help bolster your self-esteem and even prevent future loss.

What Is Laser Hair Therapy?

This is a non-invasive technique that utilizes infrared light on the scalp to stimulate growth. The compressed, cold light wavelength penetrates the skin and stimulates microcirculation. This improves cellular metabolism and results in better protein synthesis, which leads to a fuller head of hair that is stronger and thicker than before.

How Does It Work?

These treatments work by sending infrared light to the scalp. The frequency of the infrared light stimulates the cells, which in turn increases blood flow and oxygen to the follicles. This switches the follicles from the dormant, or rest phase to the growth phase. In studies, approximately 70 percent of the follicles bombarded by the infrared light move into the growth phase.

What Are the Side Effects?

One of the best things about laser hair therapy is there are no known side effects. Despite using an infrared light for the procedure, it is painless. The "cold' light doesn't burn, and there is no UV exposure. The entire procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical. You can resume your normal activities immediately following your treatments. Some patients even read or watch TV during their therapy sessions.

Could You Be a Candidate?

Laser hair therapy is effective for both men and women. Anyone who has noticed thinning locks can use the therapy to regrow their own natural mane. Those who have undergone transplant surgery also benefit from the treatments. For those patients, it is a follow-up to the invasive procedure, which helps heal the scalp faster. It also stimulates the newly transplanted tissue for quicker regrowth.

Those who suffer from Alopecia or undergo treatments such as chemotherapy can benefit from this therapy as well. In addition to using non-surgical grafts and prosthetics, this therapy can help to enhance your overall appearance.

How Does It Work for Loss Prevention?

For those who are in the early stages of loss, thinning is your biggest concern. The same techniques used to restore your tresses also stop them from falling out. This preventative maintenance is coupled with a topical loss prevention system in the form of shampoos, conditioners, or salves. The topical formula reduces your body's DHT production, which is a hormone responsible for shrinking your follicles.

Should You See a Specialist?

There are many over-the-counter options making similar claims to restoring your locks to their former glory. However, many of these systems do not work as advertised. Additionally, while these laser hair systems do use cold light, there is always a chance of injury due to negligent use. A specialist knows exactly what to do, what settings to use, and how long each treatment should last. This ensures that you are getting the safest and best treatment.

How To Maximize Hair Growth Using Castor Oil


- No comments
Falling hair is a common problem that affects almost all kinds of people - young or old, rich or poor, men and women. This may be due to the presence of harsh chemicals in some shampoos, conditioners and hair care products that majority of people use every day. Or this could also be attributed to hereditary, the presence of chronic illnesses like cancer, or as a part of postpartum stage in women after giving birth.

But whatever is the cause of hair fall, it is important that this will be given immediate attention before it becomes worse.

There are many products in the market that claim to treat and prevent hair fall. There are even some brands of shampoos that reportedly prevent balding due to hairfall. But since time immemorial, there is one natural product that has really been proven very effective in treating and preventing hair fall. This natural product is castor oil.

Castor oil is a derivative of seeds from the castor oil plant. It has been traditionally used as a laxative, for beauty treatment and to treat skin conditions such as acne and rashes. But it is most effective in hair regrowth and keeping both the hair and scalp healthy.

Castor oil for hair growth works effectively in helping you regrow your hair by up to five times the normal growth since it contains ricinoleic acid that helps increase blood circulation to the scalp.

But what makes castor oil very effective is it contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that help fight folliculitis, dandruff, ringworm, piedra and other forms of scalp infections, which literally work to make your scalp and hair healthy.

Ricinoleic acid also works to balance your scalp's pH level and help replenish the natural oils found in the scalp that may have been lost by harsh chemicals in the hair care products you use.

Aside from chemicals in shampoos and hair care products, scalp problems arise due to the over alkalinity of the scalp but with the ricinoleic acid in this oil, the pH level of the scalp will slowly return to normal.

In addition to antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, castor oil also contains a considerable amount of antioxidants like vitamin E that support the hair's keratin, making the strands stronger and smoother, and less frizzy.

It also contains omega-6 fatty acids, minerals and proteins that are very important in promoting a healthy hair and scalp.

Castor oil for hair growth works to make the hair richer, darker, shiny and moisturized while preventing split ends.

So if you want to regrow your hair the natural way, just use this oil and you get not only healthy and stronger hair but also healthy scalp.

The Best Hair Loss Home Remedies


- No comments
It's no secret that people put in a lot of effort to look good and presentable. However, no matter how great your overall appearance is, if you suffer from hair loss then this can affect you negatively. When hair strands begin to fall rapidly, the overall volume decreases and you might even experience receding hair-line.

Before this scenario gets worse, it is important that you start early treatment. Most people prefer home remedies over prescription drugs because they want to improve the health of their hair without the use of chemical products.

Below are some of the best hair loss home remedies that you can try for quick results.

Increase nutrients intake

Nutrient deficiency can affect the health of your hair. When your diet is lacking in sufficient amounts of iron, zinc and vitamin A, not only does hair start to fall but it also begins to lack shine and body.

Thus, you need to take foods rich in these nutrients to improve the health of your scalp. Fish, meat, nuts, seeds as well as healthy fats are all good sources of these nutrients. Make sure to add iron-rich foods to your diet and you will notice good results quickly.

Whip up a blend of hair oils

Hair oils are very important for stronger, shinier hair. The strands can become dry and damaged due to many factors including the hair care products we use. It is important to apply oil to your hair at least every two weeks. This way, your hair will become softer and more healthier in no time.

Some of the best oils that you can use include almond, mustard, coconut as well as extra virgin olive oil. These are popular oils in many countries and many women swear by the effectiveness of oiling hair regularly. You can mix a couple of different oils together to boost their beneficial properties.

Apply deep protein treatments

Our hair requires protein to stay strong and healthy. Applying protein treatments externally is one of the best ways to coat and fill the strands. You can easily make your own protein mask simply by whipping an egg along with a little amount of oil and some lemon juice. Apply the mixture in sections and allow to sit for half an hour. Then rinse and wash as usual. You will notice that your hair is thicker and shinier afterwards.

Another easy hair mask you can try is avocado pulp mixed with a few spoons of mayonnaise. Apply all over your head and allow the mixture to sit for some time. Then go ahead and rinse it out completely before washing with shampoo or any other hair cleanser of your choice.

Be careful with wet hair

The way we dry wet hair after washing is very important. Some people dry their hair by rigorously rubbing them between a towel. However, this is damaging since wet hair is very weak and prone to breakage.

Instead of a heavy towel, use a spare t-shirt instead. The fibers of the t-shirt are softer and they will also absorb excess moisture without the need for vigorous rubbing.

Take herbal supplements

Another way to promote good health of your hair is to take herbal supplements. These products are safe and natural and can help increase the growth rate as well as strengthen hair. Herbal supplements also help fight scalp infections that are responsible for weak hair follicles.

Massage scalp regularly

Apart from the above, you can also try scalp massage at home. Simply rub the tips of your fingers all over your scalp to increase blood flow to the area. Proper blood circulation in the scalp region helps to provide the nutrients necessary for faster growth.

- No comments
Treating acne problems is no ordinary feat. Some people may respond to conventional treatments while others don't. Some may produce noticeable improvements after a period of treatment only to have the problem recur at some future time. Topical preparations of benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol, salicylic acid and sulfur are among the most common over the counter medications for mild inflammatory acne. Moderate to severe cases are treated with prescription drugs - topical or oral, or a combination of the two. Conventional treatments with topical or oral preparations, while proven effective, may cause certain side effects. Negative reactions to acne medications may include itching, headaches, muscle pain or hair loss. Some reported incidence pf dizzy spells, upset stomach or skin irritation, discoloration, scaling, peeling and burning sensation. Some medications (tetracycline) affect tooth and bone development in unborn fetuses while others (tetracycline, minocycline) tend to decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills. Researchers even reported that one acne medication called isotretinoin may even cause birth defects if taken by pregnant women! You might really want to get rid of that acne, but now that you are aware of the possible side effects of certain medication, can you take the risk? A considerable number of people now prefer alternative methods of treating acne. While these methods may treat the problem at a slower pace, they are considered less dangerous. Please read on. Who knows? You may want to consider these methods in going about your acne problem.

Herbal Medicine. There is a variety of herbal medicine available to fight and ward off acne. You can use either black currant seed oil or evening primrose oil supplements. Taking three 500 milligram capsules a day for about three months produces noticeable improvement.

If you are a tea drinker, you may want to try calendula, echinea, goldenseal or tea tree oil or you may go with the Chinese herbalists' recommendations and use a combination of cnidium and honeysuckle flower to treat the condition.

If you feel, however, that stress contributes to your acne outbreak, counter it with an aromatic cup of lavender or chamomile tea. If this does not sooth your nerves, nothing else will!

Vitamin Therapy. A lot of vitamin preparations may be used in the fight against acne. Taking a daily supplement of 30 to 50 milligram of Zinc may aid in reducing the inflammation of the lesions. It may also contribute in the faster healing of the damaged skin.

Reducing sebum production may minimize clogging of the pores, which is believed to be one of the major causes of acne. Please note, however, that taking mega doses of Vitamin A may cause side effects. This includes headaches, fatigue, joints and muscle pain, among others. Consult first with a qualified practitioner before deciding to take mega supplements of this vitamin.

Other vitamins that may support the body's natural defense system in warding off acne include chromium (by helping the body in breaking down glucose), vitamin E (an antioxidant) and vitamin B6 (aids in the metabolism of hormones).

There are still a lot of other alternative treatments for acne. Keep reading for more on the second part of this article.

How To Take Care Of Feet


- No comments
Taking care of feet is often a neglected area of our daily body-care routine. These great parts of our bodies are carrying us around (no matter how heavy we are) all day long and all we want them to, frequently in very uncomfortable shoes and some socks that don't even breathe.

When our feet get tired, we feel fatigued overall. If that happens to you a lot, it's time to apply some benefits for your much needed and valuable - feet.

First of all, wear comfortable shoes. I don't know which ones are best for you. Find a pair in which your feet feel natural. That alone will make a huge difference in the way you feel.

Second, whenever you're wearing socks, they should be made out of a breathable material. Otherwise, your feet feel like your hands do while wearing latex gloves for a long time.

Third, your feet, just as every part of your body, deserve some loving care. At night, just before you go to bed, put some lotion or cream on your dry and clean feet. It doesn't have to be any special kind (as long as there's no troubled areas on your feet); almost any hand cream or regular body lotion should do.

The important thing that truly makes a difference is: don't just apply. Take a minute or even better - two and massage the entire feet area (don't skip a pinky toe!), apply as much lotion as necessary, and enjoy the refreshingly energizing sensation of your tiredness departing your body.

If nothing else, your hills won't be all that dry anymore. Plus, it's going to be so much easier to go to sleep.

How to Win Your War with Acne


- No comments
Acne affects a surprisingly large proportion of the population, but that's not much comfort -- is it? Misery loves company, but I'm not sure that statement refers to the misery caused by acne. But cheer up, because help is on the horizon!

If you too suffer from acne, you need help and you need it now! That's because although acne isn't a serious disease, it can sure cause you a lot of trouble! It's miserable having your face covered with pimples and lasting scars can remain that may be disfiguring.

To begin with, you should know what causes acne before you can effectively fight it. It's a skin disease that involves the pores of the skin becoming blocked up with oil from the sebaceous glands. The oil is supposed to go through the tiny pores on your skin and be eliminated, but when dead skin cells get all tangled up with the excess oil, your pores will get plugged up. That's when a bacterial infection can grow. The bacteria release chemicals that call out to your body's white blood cells to come and attack them. Now there's a war right on your face, back, chest or neck. The whole mess ends up in the eruption of unwelcome pimples.

Understanding this inflammation process will help you to see there are certain things you can do to avoid getting pimples. For example, be sure to avoid putting greasy products on your face or other affected areas that will add to the plugged-up condition of your skin pores.

Acne is no respecter of persons. People of all races and ages can be afflicted by it. However, there is a genetic factor and some people are more susceptible to suffering from acne due to hereditary issues.

Hormones usually bring on acne during puberty, but becoming an adult does not necessarily make you immune to developing pimples.

There are a number of products on the market that can help you with acne, but one size doesn't fit all. A product that may work very well for one person may not work at all for you. You may need to experiment with a number of different medications to find the right one.

Different acne products do different things. For example, some acne products specialize in unplugging the pores of your skin. Other products dry up your complexion -- which may help you to experience clearer skin. Some products offer a number of different ways to help you fight acne. Be sure to stick with a product long enough to see if it's actually helping you. However, move on to another product if after several weeks of consistently using a product -- it isn't clearing up your skin.

Don't get discouraged while you're searching for just the right acne product. Remember that there are products out there that can help you to get rid of acne, but you'll need to be patient and persevere until you find just the right one.

If you have scarring from acne, there are procedures that can help the scars to be less noticeable or even to go away. One of the most effective and newest options is acne laser treatment. It can help replace scarred skin with new healthy skin that is underneath it.

It's essential that you help yourself to clearer skin by keeping your face scrupulously clean and that you eat wholesome foods and avoid greasy junk foods -- if you want to win your war with acne. Also be sure to get enough exercise and adequate sleep. Living a healthy lifestyle will eventually show up on your skin!

Winning your own personal war with acne will not be an easy and quick fix. But clear skin is a prize that is worth the effort.

Facing Sun Effects

A secret has been revealed in the news over the past few weeks. I was a part of that secret. What was the secret you ask? Men are now using skin care products as a part of their daily activities!

I started a few months ago due to something I learned about myself. I had my picture taken. Not just a standard picture. I had my picture taken with a special ultraviolet camera and light that shows damaged skin due to excessive sun exposure. First they took a picture of my face with standard light. Although not a flattering picture, it looked like I expected. Then they took a picture of my face with the ultraviolet light. What did I look like? I looked like I had a face FULL of freckles. Only these freckles weren't the cute ones that would have showed up in the first picture. They showed that I have a significant amount of sun damage. I guess my early years of working and playing outside all summer long with little or no sun protection is catching up with me.

It is common knowledge that sun damaged skin will cause premature signs of aging skin (wrinkling, "leathery" appearance and feel, etc.) as well as being a cause of skin cancer. So, I decided to do something about it. One of those things is to take better care of my skin. I am using skin care products that have a sunscreen built in. These same products also contain enzymes that can help speed cell renewal in sun damaged skin.

Yes, the secret is out. I am using skin care products every day. My wife says my complexion is also better because of it. I look forward to having my picture taken in the future. Maybe my complexion isn't the only thing that is improving.

Simple Skin Care Tips To Apply Often


- No comments
When it comes to the skin, many people ignore it. It's perhaps one of the most versatile parts of the body, and yet it's ignored often. From head to toe, it's easy to ignore certain aspects of this element on the body. If you're looking at caring for your body, and you want to ensure your skin is absolutely radiant, you'll want to look  the following tips that can help you get moving forward with just that. These are simple skin care tips that you can start working with right now.

Moisturize Your Skin With Natural Lotions

There are a lot of lotions in the aisles of stores today. Look at the ingredients. You may not be able to pronounce a lot of them. If you see something that you can't pronounce, move on. Look for options that have herbal, botanical, and natural ingredients. That is going to help you get the most out of your skincare, and you will not have to deal with harsh chemicals. If you don't do this, you could be putting something harsh on your skin, and that could cause irritation. When irritation sets in, expect to deal with break outs, rashes, burning, and even peeling. It's just not worth going through.

Never Forget Sunscreen

This may seem obvious to some, but there are a lot of people that don't think about it. Sunscreen is going to save you time and time again. You should look at putting it on in the morning, then applying it again at mid-day and towards the evening hours. You should never go forward without this on your skin, as it could very well save you from burning. If you have sunburn, immediately reach for aloe vera gels to heel the elements. Just one sunburn could cause your skin to flake, peel, and cause serious damage to the cells.

Wash Your Face With Specific Soaps

Here's the one thing that you are going to need to remember, don't wash your face with any old soap. Some people assume that they can use bar soap on their face. That's not good. You'll find that this will dry out your pores and cause problems down the line. Instead, look for a facial cleanser and use a moisturizing soap. You'll find that "foam" options can work best here. You want to ensure that your skin is not left dry, cracked, and flaking as a result of harsh chemicals found in traditional bar soaps.

At the end of the day, you're going to find that the tips above seem obvious. They can be. However, many people read these and don't apply them. They just assume that they are not part of the bigger picture. Skin care starts with simple steps, and continues through a lifetime of applications. If you treat your skin right, it will last a long time, and you will not have to worry about issues like skin cancer, or sunburns that can cause a tremendous amount of pain. Use these tips often, and you'll no doubt see great things.

5 Essential Tips To Keep Your Skin Glowing In Winter


- No comments
Winter weather is harsh on every inch of your skin, most especially the exposed parts of your face, hands and feet. Cold temperatures, low humidity, and dry air strip your skin of much-needed moisture. Additionally, hot showers, long baths, and central heating, also contribute to causing dry, sore, and flaky skin or even eczema.

If you don't take adequate care, your skin will dry out and feel tighter than usual. You, therefore, need to pay closer attention to skin care in winter than during any other season. Below are useful winter skin care tips that will keep your skin smooth and supple.

Moisturize

Keeping your skin well moisturized is the cardinal rule of all winter skin care tips. In winter, your skin needs more hydrated than ever before. Apply a moisturizer immediately after taking a shower, washing your hands or face. The longer you wait, the more your skin dries out.

Always keep a moisturizer nearby, and generously use it after every wash. More importantly, massage your hands and feet with a deep moisturizing lotion every night. Hands, elbows, and feet have very few oil glands and tend to dry out more. Wear socks and gloves to lock in the moisture.

Use oil-based moisturizers

Remember to use an oil-based moisturizer during the winter months. Oil creates a better seal on your skin than water-based products. Opt for non-clogging oil lotions and night creams with shea butter, lavender, chamomile, primrose, avocado or almond oils. Creams that contain sorbitol or glycerine are also a plus. Avoid petroleum-based products and harsh cleansers that contain salicylic or glycolic acids, since they tend to dry out your skin.

Your Lips gets dried too

It is also essential to take care of your lips to prevent them from becoming chapped and dried. Using a natural lip balm with natural oils such as grapeseed, coconut, shea butter to lock in the moisture and keep your lips from becoming cracked.

Apply sunscreen

We tend to think sunscreen is only necessary for summer. However, the winter sun coupled with glare from the snow can damage your skin. UV rays that causes sunburn will ruin your exposed skin even on cloudy days. Apply a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor rating (SPF) for better results. Keep your face and hands protected from the sun and cold wind by wearing a hat, scarf and gloves.

Turn on the humidifier

Central heating may keep us warm and cozy in winter, but the dry, hot air it blasts through our homes and offices dries out the skin. In fact, any heating, whether wood, oil or electric, will dry out the skin. Turn on the humidifier every day to add moisture to the air. Install smaller units around the house, especially in the bedroom for better results.

Stay hydrated

Drinking more water in winter may sound unnatural. After all, taking a glass of water is not the first choice on a cold day. We all love our hot chocolate and lattes in winter. However, these hot drinks may keep us warm, but as diuretics, they make us lose water. Try and drink more water, even when not thirsty.

You may warm the water and add some a squeeze of lemon for a refreshing taste. Eating water-laden fruits and vegetables such as watermelon, oranges, tomatoes, and cucumbers will also help you stay hydrated. Furthermore, your skin needs vitamins and other nutrients in fresh vegetables to stay smooth and supple.

It is also important to use natural skin care products that will add moisture to your skin keeping it soft and smooth and prevent drying which can lead to damage and age your skin.

Try these five essential winter skincare tips. You will be surprised to see how implementing them can keep your skin hydrated during the harsh weather for a soft, supple and glowing skin.

Healthy snack for kids


- No comments
"Mom, I'm hungry". If you got a rupee every time your kid said that to you; you'd be a millionaire by now.

Kids' ability to develop an appetite at any hour of the day is just amazing. Be it the after-school mini meal, or the evening snack after play, they love their daily quota of munching! We've all gone through the same phase of growing up.

However, arranging healthy food for kids always might not be that easy. This binging in between meals is actually the biggest reason behind obesity in children. While you may find it hard to turn down their snacking demands, you can always make sure what they're eating is healthy. After all, the habit of healthy eating in children starts from home.

Whip your kids some tasty home-made snacks, that are as easy as making instant noodles, but a whole lot more nutritious! Make your children's health your priority with these healthy snacks:

Fruit Flavoured Milk:

Milk and fruits are a good way to substitute chips and soda for that evening snack. Make it great by blending them both together! Use fruits like strawberries, peaches, or mixed berries with low-fat milk to make a delicious glass of Fruit-Shake, filled to the brim with healthiness.

Oatmeal pancakes:

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It's also the most rushed. Make the most of every second by whipping up a super-fast pancake made with oat flour. Served with eggs, they take less than 5 minutes to make. The carbohydrates and proteins make it good food for the kids.

Green Kebabs:

Feeding green vegetables to kids is like taking on the toughest job on the planet. Fool them into eating spinach and peas by cooking up some healthy 'green' kebabs. Put in some potatoes for a balanced meal. They make excellent finger foods for kids and can be served any time of the day.

Yoghurt Dessert:

Swap that unhealthy ice-cream sundaes laden with fats and sugar with a cupful of fruit yogurt. Sweeten some Greek yogurt with some honey, mix in berries, and freeze it like popsicles. Dessert suddenly becomes a healthy food for the kids.

Sweet-Potato chips:

When hunger strikes, kids usually reach out for bags of potato chips. Give chips a healthy twist by using sweet potato instead of potato. Don't fry them, instead, bake them until crispy, and serve them with homemade coriander sauce.

As much as we like to keep our kids happy, we also like to see them healthy. Junk food might be the easiest option when it comes to snacks, but it does more harm than good to your childern's health. So grab that apron, and just take 5 minutes out of your busy schedule to rustle up some healthy snacks. Who said healthy food can't be fun?.

Dry skin remedies to protect your skin


- No comments
Many people have skin which is extremely dry. However, they make a common mistake of thinking that this is their skin's natural disposition. They don't take any measures to control the dryness of their skin and therefore keep suffering from dryness and itchiness. It is very important to know the kind of skin type that you have, as this will help you in treating it accordingly. Take the help of health magazines, internet forums, friends and family to ascertain the skin type which you have. There are many ways in which you can tackle the naturally dry skin. This does not involve any chemical products and their side effects, and some potential solutions are discussed below.

Avoid taking long baths: If you suffer from dry skin, avoid taking very long and hot baths. Take a quick 15 minute bath and allow your skin to dry. Do not rub your skin as it can cause rashes on it. Also use a moisturizer when your skin is a little moist after a bath as it will help in locking the moisture better in the pores.

Use very mild cleansers: Use gentle cleansers and soap for washing. Avoid any product which have fragrances, alcohol and parabens in it. This may cause your skin to dry up all the more. The harsh chemicals present in very strong products can damage the health of the skin in the long term if used too often. So you should use soaps made with natural ingredients.

Use natural oils: Oils such as olive oil, Jojoba oil or coconut oil should be massaged onto your skin. Dry skin can absorb these oils as they have very small molecules. These oils also help in making your skin softer and suppler. Other natural products such as Cynergy TK are also helpful. Cynergy TK is also responsible for the production of keratin in your skin as well as brightening the overall tone of your skin. 
Therefore, you can use any of these above given natural products to treat your dry skin. Do not be careless and do not ignore your skin. It can cause you a lot of needless discomfort in the long run.

Milk: Milk has anti-inflammatory properties which can help dry and scaly skin. The lactic acid present in milk exfoliates the dead skin and act as moisturizer by retaining moisture.

By following the above mentioned remedies, you can take care of your dry skin by using natural products and natural oils and soaps with natural ingredients.
