100 Beauty Tips!

Nothing looks fresher than a clear complexion. If your skin is getting a bit dull, check out these quick fixes.

1. Go for the glow the natural way. Smooth mashed strawberries or raspberries all over your face and rinse off immediately for that postfacial radiance.

2. Fight puffiness with herbal tea. Steep chamomile tea bags in a small amount of water, then chill. Use as compresses to temporarily diminish skin irritation.

3. Wash with lukewarm water. Heat can aggravate sensitive facial skin, resulting in broken capillaries or redness.

4. Skip soap. Most contain alkalines that are potentially irritating. Use a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil instead.

5. Don’t scrub! Vigorous rubbing can leave skin feeling coarse and looking worn. Instead, wipe gently with a soft washcloth. And use exfoliating cleansers sparingly (no more than twice a week).

6. Stash moisturizer and toner in the fridge. The coolness helps skin look firmer–and feels good too.

7. Prime yourself. For a refreshing twist, before applying foundation, massage a drop of essential oil of rose or angelica (available at health-food stores) on your face instead of your regular moisturizer. It gives skin a dewy glow.

8. Apply moisturizer before blow-drying your hair. This will prevent the hot air from drying out your epidermis (the top layer of skin) and accentuating fine lines.

9. Vary your routine. Have you noticed how your face looks terrific for the first few months after switching to a new cream? Then your skin gets used to the product and the results seem less dramatic. Try a different cleanser, toner, and moisturizer every six months or so-when you run out of your current brand.

10. Pamper skin with a homespun facial. Combine one-half cup of sliced cucumbers with one-half teaspoon of honey in the blender. Apply all over your face; leave on for 30 minutes; then rinse with lukewarm water.

11. Cover your bases, use concealer that’s one shade lighter than your foundation. Any paler and you’ll get reverse raccoon eyes. Prep the delicate eye zone with moisturizer or eye cream.

12. Hide fine lines. Gently apply a creamy concealer (like Prescriptives Camouflage Cream) with a small, synthetic-bristled brush. Then lightly dust loose powder over the area.

13. Get the red out. Skin will look smoother if you erase any ruddiness. The easiest way is to use a yellow-based concealer pencil (sold in beauty-supply stores). After applying foundation, lightly dab pencil tip on red areas (cheeks, nose, forehead), then blend the color in with a dry makeup sponge. A wet one will cause streaking.

14. Mix foundation with moisturizer for a sheer finish. Blend together a bit of each on the back of your hand and use a makeup sponge for smooth application.

15. Switch to a replenishing formula. Water-based foundations don’t hydrate dry skin sufficiently and can highlight tiny lines. Use a moisturizing foundation with dimethicone for a dewy finish.

16. Powder lightly. Don’t pack on more in an attempt to hide your flaws. Too much will only settle …

Sleeping Becoming An Issue – Snoring Is A Problem

Funny thing about me. I’ve really never had any problems sleeping. I mean, through my teen years, I was practically the poster boy for sleeping in. It was amazing how much sleep I could get. I mean, outside of a few teenage boners, some drama with cigarettes and a deep feeling for girls lacrosse, I really remember very little from my teen life outside of sleeping. Those were some long days, friends. Before the Internet. Back when I spent a ton of time saying, “I’m SOOOO bored” to pretty much anyone who would listen. I spent a lot of time watching Miami Vice, thinking it was the coolest thing ever.

Ok, so I was often wrong about things. It was the 80s, man!

Those Long Nights

So I find myself in a situation in which the longest part of any date is the night. I find that I am waking up inappropriately at all hours of the night and it seems like my brain just cannot stop. Now I am actually doing research and finding out that things like calcium and magnesium actually help you with your insomnia. I also discover the sleeping pill is the really the bane of my existence and actually only end up making me very eager to go and quite stupid for quite a good period of time, frankly.

But what I never really understood as somebody who has been a bachelor for a long time is that I actually do have a pretty serious problem: I’m talking about snoring. I realized that this was the issue that was because for all of these that I woke up thinking that I really didn’t get a decent rest, even though the amount of time passed seem to be evidence of the fact that I did get some sleep.

So now I find myself actually doing research on things like snoring mouthpieces and even checking out reviews on something called the SnoreLess pillow. What? Who, me? Well, I have been told that my sleeping place in my bedroom will no longer be reserved if I cannot quiet down. My wife hold the keys, and I certainly don’t really have the power to take them from her. So, I’m actually reading a lot of articles on sleep apnea and snoring and trying to figure out what kind of exercises I can do so that I no longer sound like a 1970 Dodge Challenger with no muffler when I’m sleeping.

The Curious Case Of The Snore

One of the things that strikes me as very strange about snoring is that it is one of those things that you could live alone with for the rest of your life and never really know what was wrong. I mean, there are those people who have serious heart problems and need things like a CPAP machine, but I tend to think that those people are more frequent than anything. Most people just have a relatively small snoring problem and frankly just …

Going to Get an Order of Super Beta Prostate

osbpSince I am not in high school anymore, I have to look at my health more often. I have been going to fitness classes in order to get back in shape. I have also started to juice the vegetables I bought from the store. Juicing is a good way to get a lot of extra vitamins into one’s food regimen. If my parents would have told be I would be juicing for health reasons when I was older, I would have probably told them that is not happening. I actually had the worst diet during my college years and I still can’t believe that I am eating healthier. One reason I am eating significantly better is because I want my prostate to stay strong.

I was told that if I get an enlarged prostate, I would have to use the bathroom more frequently. This will be annoying if I was at a movie and had to use the bathroom every 15 minutes. I heard of the supplement Super Beta Prostate on the radio, so I searched for Super Beta Prostate reviews on the internet. It seems to be a good product, so I am going to invest in some. I will most likely start off with just a month supply.

Why You Should Opt For A Drug Rehab Centre

Drug rehab centers are the best places for any of your addiction patients. This is because addiction centers offer a hospitable environment for healing unlike any other place. Their facilities, programs and even the staff have been created in such a way that they are hospitable regardless on the level of addiction for your patient.

Drug rehab centers like this also offer character building programs. All of us are aware that the most affected part of a drug addict is his or her character. Many addicts’ character gets affected due the habit of addiction. There are some of them who get into the habit of stealing, crime, or robbery for them to satisfy their need for drugs. If this is done repeatedly, it greatly interferes with their character. Realize also that professional help is vital for your patient. This guarantees you the success of helping your patient get out of an addiction problem.

Last but not the least, the drug rehab centers offer follow up programs for your patient. After their program in the rehab center, one of the professional counselors is put in charge of the patient for sometime just to ensure that he or she overcomes their addiction totally. Lastly, every patient in the rehab center is offered specialized treatment.

Drug Rehab Centers Reviewed

Drug addiction was part of my past. I was tied up in an alcohol addiction from the time I was a teenager. I was already involving myself into crime following the fact that none of my relatives was too willing to offer me some money for upkeep. They knew that every cent I had would absolutely go into satisfying my craving for alcohol.

Different people; friends, relatives and everyone in the society talked about me and the addiction I was tied in. Many of them gave different options to my parents. Some of them gave my parents the option of locking me up in a room for a week. Finally, after a long search for a solution, I found reviews of Rock Solid rehab center, and as a result chose that facility for help.

At first, this idea did not sound real to me. I was admitted when my life was completely shattered. I was at the age of 25. I had heard of stories about drug addiction centers helping people to overcome any kind of drug addiction. Six months in this place completely changed my life. I was helped out of the addiction and all I can say is that drug rehab centers offer a solution to your addiction.…

Big Tech Ain’t Getting Smaller

I think you never recognize from the get-go just how much you’re going to miss blogging until you actually stop. I was one of those people who thought, “no way, man. This stuff is getting tedious. You need a break”, but the fact was that I really didn’t need that break. There are too kinds of people in this world, I guess. Those who are willing to stand up and speak about things, and those who listen.

That’s not to say there isn’t room for hybrids, of course 😉 What I recognized recently was that I am more of a writer than I am a listener. My wife knows this. Plenty of my friends know this. But I am not completely one dimensional, fortunately, which means I can adapt to conditions.

Anyway, that’s my excuse for the layoff.

They say that like athletes that have been away from their sport for a long time, bloggers find it tough to get back to where they were. To that I say – bull-hooey. I don’t know who “they” are, but this “they” tends to be very pessimistic, as far as I’m concerned.

Big Tech, Big Funk

So technology changes certainly aren’t slowing, are they? I mean, I’m certainly not talking about the letdown with the IPad Mini. I certainly don’t want to jump all over Apple’s back while they’re clearly running out of ideas. I get that they’ll never be the same company without Steve Jobs, but I think their next product is basically make-or-break for them. Make a bigger IPhone or a heavier IPod, though, and watch out below if you’re a stock holder. That stock be a wild one!

Among tech giants, though, Google continues to impress me. These guys continue to have a virtually insurmountable stranglehold on the very structure of the web, and no one, and I mean no one (I’m talking to you, Facebook) is going to have even a hint of changing that. It does suck for Bing and the other terrifying two in the realm, but what do you do?

What people don’t realize is that all of the minor search players were once fifty times as big as the big G. They could have gone in, bought the place and basically either raided it of all of its technology, or turned it into a corporate shill and slowly kill the brand and its quality.

Isn’t that what bigger tech companies tend to do, anyway?

I look at software companies as the absolute killers of any kind of creativity. I mean, look at Adobe. They’ve been selling the same bloated version of Photoshop for like 12 years, and every year they come out with a new “version” that’s basically the same as the last except practically unusable if you’re a newbie. This in turn feeds their whole “education” industry, which obviously adds to the bottom line.

Still, I’m a strong believer in the fact that PC chips are now mega faster than any …

How I Stay Healthy At Age 40

Now that I am about to be 40 years old, I have to worry about the condition of my body. I can remember being in my twenties, thinking I would be invincible to health problems. I now know that this is not true. If I eat pizza now, I start to get a heart burn. To combat the health problems, I started a diet and exercise program. My doctor told me it is the best thing for me to do if I want to prevent health problems. I have a family history of heart attacks, so I am going to do all it takes in order to prevent one. I also heard that men my age start to have problems with there prostate as well. I heard that some men have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night multiple times because their prostate isn’t healthy anymore.

badgutI asked my doctor if there was anything I could do to prevent my prostate from going bad and he told me to try a prostate supplement. I then looked on Bing for Super Beta Prostate Reviews, since it was the one he recommended. It received some pretty stellar reviews, so I went ahead and ordered some. It is supposed to come in the mail soon.

Starting to Take Better Care of My Health

Getting old is a part of life and I am starting to realize that more and more as I get older. I can no longer eat all the pizza I want or eat a cartoon of ice cream in one day. I now have to watch my weight if I want to prevent any serious health problems. One thing that I have started doing to better my health is running. I started running around my town the past month and it feels great. It actually gives me more energy throughout the day. I have also started taking prostate supplements. The ones I take are called Super Beta Prostate. They are suppose to be the best on the market right. At first I never heard of them so I did some research on Super Beta Prostate reviews.

When I did my research, I only found good reviews of the product. I decided that I was going to try them out and I am happy I did. I feel like my prostate is healthier now. I use to have problems with my prostate, but they are fixed now. I am not sure if it is because my diet is better now or if it is from the supplements. It could also be a combination of the two. “…
