Natural beauty remedies from across the globe

Believe it or not, you don’t have to spend a fortune on branded beauty products to look good. Mother Nature has provided us with a wide range of natural cosmetics that can be just as effective – so let’s find out more.

Here are a handful of remedies from across the globe:

Red grapes
A chemical peel can improve the tone and texture of your skin, but some people rely on red grapes to do the job. They’re packed with free radical fighting antioxidants and can be blended to form a rejuvenating face mask. Chilean women credit this red fruit for their radiant complexion and are thought to create a grape and flower mixture to help their skin flourish.

Olive oil
Moisturisers, body butters and hand lotions can be ridiculously expensive, so why not give olive oil a go? This wonderful product – which was once dubbed ‘liquid gold’ by the poet Homer – has been used as a moisturiser for many years and is popular in Mediterranean countries such as Greece and Italy. It will leave your skin soft and supple and is a natural sunscreen – making it a delightful cosmetic for all the family.

Turmeric power
The Huffington Post recently reported that Indian women rub a mixture of turmeric and chickpea flour into their skin before their wedding day. Why? Well the turmeric contains a concoction of antioxidants and inflammatory agents which can cure spots and reduce hyperpigmentation and chickpea flour is a great moisture absorber. If you want to use this wonderful spice, simply add a pinch to your moisturiser for a soft, clear complexion.

Garlic
Garlic is added to mouth-watering dishes across the globe and is a chef’s best friend – but it also has other benefits. It’s used by women in the Dominican Republic to strengthen their nails and is more than just a species in the onion genus. Dominicans chop the garlic into tiny pieces and add it to clear nail polish. They leave it to stew for ten days, before using as a cosmetic, so why not give it a go? Don’t worry, the smell wears off pretty quickly.

Cinnamon
Lip fillers are available at clinics across the UK, but cinnamon can have a similar effect, as it increases blood flow and draws nutrients to the lips. It has been used it Indian cooking for years and is available from many supermarkets – so it’s worth giving it a go. If you don’t like cinnamon, Mariah Carey is rumoured to add peppermint to her lip gloss to achieve a beautiful smile. Surgical procedures are popular these days, but it seems natural products can be just as beneficial.

Post skin care advice after laser hair removal

Some can be easily irritated and embarrassed by unwanted hair. People are choosing to have their unwanted hair removed through laser hair removal treatments. It is important for someone who is undergoing these treatments to know how to care for the skin afterward.

There will be redness and swelling in the area that is being treated. It can take a few hours to a few days for these symptoms to disappear. Use ice on the area to help reduce the redness and swelling. It is also possible for folliculitis to occur.

Folliculitis appears as red bumps on the skin. These bumps should be gone after two days. Having folliculitis can be a good sign. It is believed to be evidence that the laser killed the hair follicle completely. Do not pick at or scratch the treated area as this can worsen the redness and swelling.

It is important to avoid exposure to the sun for a long time. Sun exposure increases the chance of sunburns and can reduce the effectiveness of the hair removal treatments. Stay out of the sun for at least five days. Use sunscreen when you need to be out in the sun. You should also avoid tanning. Tanning has the same effect as sun exposure.

It is okay to wash the area. Be sure not to scrub. Use a mild soap to wash your skin. Dry the area by patting it dry. Lotion will help reduce redness and swelling. Lotion also helps keep the skin moisturized. Moisturized skin will help when your body begins to push out the dead hair follicle. Use a milk-based lotion to moisturize your skin. Make-up can be used 24 hours after undergoing the treatment.

Shedding will occur about one week after treatment, and it is the appearance of hair in the area that was treated. This hair is not new growth. Get rid of this hair by gently wiping the hair away with a damp soft cloth. It is also okay to shave this hair. Contact your physician if you continue to experience shedding and believe this may be new growth.

New growth can happen due to the laser treatment not penetrating the hair follicle enough to kill it completely. Always consult your physician for full instructions and a follow up after any medical treatment.

Top reasons people switch to ecigs

There are many benefits of smoking electronic cigarettes over tobacco cigarettes, and you may be surprised to know that they are not all related to health. It’s easy to be skeptical about the health benefits of making the switch since nobody has done a comprehensive study on the topic. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not worthwhile to switch to Ecigs if you have been smoking tobacco and want to make a change. Here are the top reasons to switch that people site as benefits of smoking electronic cigarettes. Information was gathered from http://www.ecigarettereviews.com

Smoking Ecigarettes is Cheaper
That’s right, the money element is a big one when people are deciding to make the switch. It may not be the number one reason, but it plays a key role in the decision making process. Most smokers don’t consider how expensive their habit is. For something that is completely unnecessary, smokers spend thousands of dollars a year on tobacco products.

Imagine if you could have even half of that money back to spend on other things, like weekends away or healthier foods or a pair of shoes you’ve been admiring. Well, as soon as smokers start to think like that, they realize that one of the benefits of smoking electronic cigarettes is that they can always try it out and then switch back – but in the meantime they’ll be saving some money.

Ecigarettes Smell Like Nothing
You’re probably fairly immune to the bad smells that permeate your life. The smell of cigarette smoke is probably attractive to you if you are a smoker, because it is a reminder of the satiation of the addiction. But the problem with tobacco smoke is that it lingers and grows stale. And stale smoke smells are, let’s face it, disgusting. Do you keep an ashtray on your kitchen table so you can sniff it when you walk by? No.

Of all the benefits of smoking electronic cigarettes, this one probably gets a lot of attention from all kinds of smokers. Even if you love to smoke, you probably hate how your pillow smells in the morning when you haven’t washed your hair before getting into bed. Smoking stinks, but ecigs do not.

Electronic Cigarettes Smokers Feel Better
Okay, now we’re getting into the health territory again. It’s true that most people who claim there are healthy benefits of smoking electronic cigarettes as compared to tobacco cigarettes are using deductive reasoning rather than scientific studies. Ecigarettes contain nicotine, which is not healthy. But other than that, they are quite neutral. Tobacco, on the other hand, contains tar and about 4000 other chemicals that have documented negative effects on the body.

What do ecigarette smokers say about making the switch? They say they can breath again, that their smokers hacking cough goes away, and that they can smell and taste things more vividly again. They say they can exercise without feeling out of breath and coughing up dark phlegm. Whether or not you believe ecigs are healthy, it is hard to argue that feeling better isn’t a benefit of smoking electronic cigarettes.

Make your neck younger

Neck skin grows old earlier than facial skin. And also it becomes older faster than facial skin. By 30 y.o. neck skin looses its elasticity intensively. Every movement of the head causes the appearance of new wrinkles on the neck. But you can stop the loss of skin elasticity with the help of regular compresses from milk and green.

Pound a bunch of parsley and pour it with 1 glass of very hot milk. Cool a mixture a little and wet the napkin in it. Put the napkin on the neck for 20 minutes. Then take the napkin away and wait till milk on the skin will dry up. Finally apply any moistening or nourishing cream on the skin.
