How to Sweat Less

Sweating is an indication that the body is putting all the organs to task to keep you right. But if you find yourself in a pool of sweat then that extra sweat might become a matter of concern. While you’re busy googling for tips on how to sweat less here’s an easy one:

If your leaving behind foot prints on the floor this is no pride. You need to consider ways to sweat less on your feet to avoid those comments and giggles. Here’s a herbal remedy to help you. Add some fresh rosemary mint leaves in a liter of boiling water. Cool it to a warm temperature and discard the leaves. Add the juice of 2 lemons and stir it well before you bath your feet using this liquid. Now walk with pride while your feet breath fresh all day long.

  1. It is often said that what you eat is what you are. If you were to believe in this fact make some changes to your diet to include foods rich in silicon which helps in regulating sweat production. Almonds, grapes, strawberries etc are said to be packed with this essential mineral.
  2. Another supplement which needs to be on your diet is that of zinc. In order to make your sweat glands work less, gulp in a glass of milk with a zinc supplement and feel the difference. However, remember to check with your doctor before you pick up a supplement to make sure it does not have any side effects.
  3. A glass of lemonade helping you to beat the heat inside it helps you perspire less. If you don’t wish to drink them opt for a topical application by simply rubbing a fresh lime ( fresh one preferred over a already cut) and gently rub on the areas prone to sweat to make you sweat less and stay in comfort.
  4. If your one of those who bath in a hurry on account of over sleep or over work investing a little bit of your time can be helpful to drive away your sweaty issues. After your bath pat yourself dry and massage yourself with apple cider vinegar to stay away from the stink of your sweat.
  5. If you’re a victim of nervous sweating, then apart from becoming more confident another useful tip is to avoid coffee just before that important event. If you think a sip of this beverage can raise your spirits let me tell you coffee is a lesser known double edged sword . Both the sugar and caffeine content make your sip sinful making you sweat more. They stir up anxiety and increase your heart beat to make you feel nervous.
  6. Apart from giving you momentary pleasure, know the fact that your cigarette does NO good to you or the people around you ( who innocently continue to be passive victims of your smoke).

You might be under the misconception that smoking calms your nerves but the fact is that this comfort rises your body temperature by way of enlarging blood capillaries. While doing so your body puts in more effort and so obviously sweats. So the next time you take that puff know what’s happening inside you and cut down on the pack if you can’t avoid it completely.

MAKE-UP TIPS TO LOOK YOUNGER

You know that you are beautiful no matter your age. With this article I just want to show you how, with make-up, you can keep the brightness your skin has when you are 20, even when you are in your 40’s.
As the time passes, the skin begins to dry and to thin, so the make-up products you used when you were 20, will not advantage you when you are 40.

With these tips you will be able to make your skin look fresh and young again.

1. Primer – it is important to apply primer before any make-up products, in order to hide any imperfections, to uniform your complexion and to fill the finely wrinkles. Apply the primer after you have applied a moisturized cream.
Keep in mind – the first product you need to use when it comes to make-up is the primer, which stands as a base for any make-up product!

2. Foundation cream – choose to use a liquid foundation. Why? Because the powder foundation loads your skin and adds a few years to your look. So is better you sue a liquid foundation because it will moisturize your skin and you will have a fresh and healthy look. Choose to apply it with a brush or a sponge, instead of your fingers.

3. Avoid using tacky colors for eye shadows – fist of all beauty is elegance. Even though you may feel tempted to use bright colors, after a certain age is better to focus on the elegance. Try using neutral and delicate colors for a natural look. You can choose to play with some shadows to add a little mystery.
Remember: never use the same color for your eye shadow as the color you choose to wear!

4. Give shape to your eyebrows – the way our eyebrows look is very important, because they have an important role in how are face looks like. The key in looking fresh and young is to always have freshly plucked and groomedeyebrows.  Because over the year they tend to thin and whiten you should always have an eyebrow pencil in your beauty kit. Or you could choose to dye them. Either you choose to dye them or to use a pencil. you should use a color very natural and really close to your hair color.

5. Choose wisely your lipstick – if you choose a wrong lipstick or you apply it incorrectly, all people will see are the wrinkles around your mouth. To be sure your lipstick will not spread where it shouldn’t, before you apply it, use some moisturizing cream and then cover your lips with a thin layer of foundation. Be careful what color you use and choose to stay away from tacky ones.

These are the most important and basic 5 things when it comes to a correct make-up. A make-up that will emphasize only your strong figures and cover the ones you want to be covered. Well, this is the reason make-up was invented

I hope you find this helpful and will apply them in order to stay young and beautiful forever!

How to Get Rid of a Canker Sore

Canker sores are one of the most common inflammatory conditions of the mouth, affecting about 20 percent of the general population. Anyone can develop a canker sore; however, women are more likely than men to get them. Canker sores are not contagious and should not be confused with cold sores or fever blisters.

The exact cause of canker sores is not yet known. Some factors that can trigger canker sores are anoral injury, weak immune system, hormonal changes in the body, too much stress, excessive smoking, hereditary factors, certain drugs, anemia, using the wrong oral care products, food allergies and viral infections.

Most canker sores do not require treatment, as they will usually disappear in seven to 10 days. However, you can try some natural remedies to reduce the pain and inflammation and to speed up the healing process.

1. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is an effective natural remedy for canker sores. It has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and curative properties that help ease the pain and inflammation as well as speed up the healing process.

  • Extract the gel from a fresh aloe vera leaf and apply it directly on the canker sore. Do this several times a day.
  • Alternatively, you can rinse your mouth with fresh aloe vera juice about three or four times a day.
  • You can also take at least two tablespoons of aloe vera gel three times a day for quick results.

Note: If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can buy the gel or juice from the market.

2. Coriander

Coriander is one of the best ingredients for treating a canker sore. It contains anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal properties that can effectively help reduce the pain and discomfort associated with canker sores.

  • Boil a handful of coriander leaves in a glass of water. Strain the solution and allow the water to cool. Gargle with the lukewarm water at least three or four times a day.
  • Boil one cup of water and add one teaspoon of coriander seeds to it. Allow it to sit for some time and then strain it. Rinse your mouth with it three or four times a day.
  • You can also drink the juice from fresh coriander leaves several times a day. Instead of drinking the juice all at once, keep it in your mouth for some time so that the juice can do its magic on the affected area.

3. Honey

Honey is an extremely soothing substance and has antiseptic as well as antibacterial properties   .

  • Apply one teaspoon of honey carefully all around the canker sore. It will hurt for a few minutes, but it will then ease the pain and inflammation. Do this several times a day.
  • Mix one teaspoon of honey and one-quarter teaspoon of turmeric powder to make a fine paste. Apply the paste on the affected area and leave it on for a few minutes. Rinse your mouth well with lukewarm water. Repeat the process twice daily.

4. Salt

Salt will help draw the fluid from a canker sore and also speed up the healing process.

  1. Mix one teaspoon of salt in one cup of lukewarm water and stir it well.
  2. Use the solution to rinse your mouth. Swish the solution around for at least 30 seconds and then spit it out. This will help disinfect your mouth.
  3. After completing your rinse, put a pinch of salt directly on the canker sore. It will cause some pain, but it will help a lot in the healing process.
  4. Repeat the process four or five times a day.

5. Baking Soda

Baking soda is another very effective ingredient that can be used to treat canker sores. It can help neutralize the acidity and soothe the pain and inflammation.

  • Add a little water to one teaspoon of baking soda to make a paste. Apply the paste to the affected area using your fingers or a cotton ball. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse your mouth with lukewarm water. Do this three or four times a day.
  • Alternatively, you can mix two teaspoons of baking soda in a glass of warm water and use it to rinse your mouth. Follow this simple remedy four or five times a day.

6. Sage

You can also use the herb sage to effectively treat canker sores at home. The calming property of sage gives instant relief from the pain and inflammation.

  • Add three teaspoons of sage leaves to two cups of boiling water. Allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Let the solution cool to room temperature and then use it to rinse your mouth. Do this three or four times a day.
  • Another option is to apply powdered sage leaves directly on the canker sore and leave it on for a few minutes. Repeat this several times a day to get rid of the sore.

7. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil has antiseptic and antibacterial properties that work as effective skin disinfectants to help cure canker sores.

  • Add 10 drops of tea tree oil to a glass of water. Use the solution as a mouthwash to rinse your mouth. Do this three or four times a day.
  • Alternatively, dilute two drops of tea tree oil in one-half tablespoon of water and apply it directly on the canker sore. Do this two or three times a day.

8. Cayenne Pepper

cayenne pepper

Another ingredient commonly used in the treatment of canker sores is cayenne pepper. Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin that can temporarily numb the nerves, giving instant relief from the pain and inflammation.

9. Hydrogen Peroxide

  • Add one tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide to a glass of water and mix it well. Use this homemade solution to rinse your mouth. Be sure not to swallow it. Do this four or five times a day.
  • Mix one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide and one teaspoon of water. Use a cotton ball to apply it directly to the sore. Leave it on for some time and then rinse your mouth with water. Do this three or four times a day.

Nutrients and vitamins found in these two ingredients will enhance your breasts and plump them out if you are faithful to drink up every day. You can also try eating fresh papaya as an alternative.

2) Eat Healthy 

Breasts are primarily made of Lobes and Fats ==> Low body fat content and poor diet are factors that can prevent you from getting bigger and beautiful boobs. Gaining extra weight will generally improve your breast size.

Moreover, studies have shown that excessive production of testosterone and minimal production of estrogen hormones are part of the main causes of small breast in females. Therefore controlling the testosterone production and taking foods rich in phytoestrogen or dietary estrogens is one of the ways to get bigger boobs fast.

Foods rich in phytoestrogen.

Soy Products: soybeans, tofu, soybean oil, soymilk, soynuts, soy protein powder, soy yoghurt etc.

3) Pills and creams for bigger boobs

4) Amino Acids

In addition to increasing the breast size, amino acids are known to help burn excess fat stores in the body and prolong the aging process. Amino acids also have properties that emulate those of the growth hormone needed for breast enlargement.

5) Vitamins

Vitamin deficiencies can have a negative impact on your breast size. While each vitamin (Vitamin A, C, E and B6) has its own specific role in breast enhancement, combined together, these vitamins can help promote breast development to a great extent.

For instance, Vitamin A helps promote skin cell regeneration and rejuvenation.

Vitamin C helps in collagen restoration, thereby increasing the fullness and support of cellular tissues and skin (including those found in the breast). Vitamin B6 aids in formation of new blood cells.

Vitamin E helps regulates the cholesterol levels in the body, thereby preventing the formation of excess fat stores in other parts of the body. Together, these vitamins can help increase the breast size naturally without causing any side effects in the process.

6) Be Patient

As with anything else in life, remember to be patient as you wait for your breasts to grow. Asking yourself how to make your breasts grow is a good place to start, but you need patience to see results. If you are an adolescent girl, wait for puberty to pass before determining your breasts are too small. Often, the breasts will grow in spurts so you may have a huge change overnight in the size of your breasts!

7) Hypnosis for Breast Enhancement

Breast enhancement through self-hypnosis is a completely safe, free way to test out the power of your mind and grow bigger breasts. If you already possess the ability to conjure up powerful imagery in your mind, you also possess the power to think yourself to bigger breasts.

You see, the body is a reflection of the thoughts, emotions, and beliefs that are held by your subconscious mind and the cells in your body follow this subconscious blueprint. If you are currently holding onto a blueprint of being lacking in your breast area, you’re impeding your breast growth without even knowing it.

 

How-to-Get-Bigger-Breasts-Without-Surgery

 

Lose Weight without Diet and Gym

I know, it’s difficult, you have no time, no energy to plan meticulously meals, to calculate and put on paper every calorie consumed, to exercise every evening after work, to spend hours in the kitchen cooking tasteless meals as I’ve been there, I tried and I failed almost every time. So as a slacker usually finds the easiest of doing things, I thought there must be another method of losing weight except for the list mentioned above. Is there an alternative or not?

Yes, there is! And not only one but various efficients tricks fitting each preference.

Soo! Take a look at THE SLACKER’S GUIDE TO LOSE WEIGHT! 🙂

 

Feel free to complete it, to review, to write a feedback regarding their results, on what works or doesn’t.

Here are 16 no-effort tweaks which can be applied to your current routine instantly.

1.Sleep in

Indulge in your lazy tendencies to get more sleep. Researchers proved that a sleep of less than than five hours a night sends the scale soaring 30% higher than if you got seven hours or more. So, sleep more, eat less!

2. Drink water

Cold water helps up your metabolism as the body will work warming the liquid, burning more calories. Regular drinking helps keeping the full feeling so you won’t snack on empty calories again. Also, hydrating before you exercise will help release muscle-building hormones in your body — which spells good news for not only your strength goals but also your metabolism.

3. Cool Off 

This trick requires nothing more than a stroll over to the thermostat. Turn the heater off or turn down a few degrees and you’ll activate a type of body fat that actually burns calories. In recent years, researchers have come to realize that when we’re exposed to cooler temperatures, some of our inert stores of white fat convert to a darker, beige color and begin burning calories. You don’t have to live in a freezer, either: A British study from 2012 suggests that lowering the thermostat by just two to four degrees—aim for the mid to high 60s—can trigger the fat conversion.

4. Order your drinks unsweetened

Order a plain latte instead of flavored, plain iced tea, plain coffee. Opting for the plain latte over the flavored will save you 40 calories per 16-ounce serving and forgoing the half and half in your coffee will save you up to 20 calories and 2 grams of fat per one-tablespoon serving of the creamy stuff.

5. When Soup’s On, Weight Comes Off

Add a broth-based soup to your day and you’ll fill up on fewer calories. Think minestrone, tortilla soup, or Chinese won-ton. Soup’s especially handy at the beginning of a meal because it slows your eating and curbs your appetite. Start with a low-sodium broth or canned soup, add fresh or frozen vegetables and simmer. Beware of creamy soups, which can be high in fat and calories.

6. Drink Green Tea

Water’s not the only metabolism booster in town. Studies have shown that drinking green tea can give your metabolism a tiny increase — which can add up to over 400 extra calories burned a week! Not only that, the beverage has got some major antioxidant power, so drink up.

7. Limit Alcohol

When an occasion includes alcohol, follow the first drink with a nonalcoholic, low-calorie beverage like sparkling water instead of moving directly to another cocktail, beer, or glass of wine. Alcohol has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein. It can also loosen your resolve, leading you to mindlessly inhale chips, nuts, and other foods you’d normally limit.

8. Relax

A low-stress lifestyle may keep belly fat away, suggests research published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology. For a year, researchers from the University of California at San Francisco followed 61 healthy women; 33 were chronically stressed while the other 28 were not. All were asked to keep a record of their consumption of high sugar, high fat foods. Researchers found that eating these unhealthy foods frequently predicted metabolic risk, including a larger waistline, morebelly fat, higher oxidative damage, and more insulin resistance—but only in the high-stress group. Women in the low-stress group who also ate a lot of high fat, high sugar foods did not experience the same negative metabolic effects.

9. Get Needled

You may find acupuncture a little intimidating, but your nervous system seems to respond to one simple form—ear acupuncture—by suppressing your appetite. A recent study published inAcupuncture in Medicine suggests that when acupuncturists target five points on the ears that are linked to hunger and digestion, overweight people begin losing weight—without dieting or working out. Daniel Hsu, a licensed acupuncturist in New York City, points out that the stress-reducing benefits of acupuncture may also eliminate stress-related noshing.

10. Slip Into a Yoga State of Mind

Women who do yoga tend to weigh less than others, according to a study in theJournal of the American Dietetic Association. What’s the connection? The yoga regulars reported a more “mindful” approach to eating. For example, they tend to notice the large portions in restaurants but eat only enough to feel full. Researchers think the calm self-awareness developed through yoga may help people resist overeating.

11. Chew Strong Mint Gum

Chew sugarless gum with a strong flavor when you’re at risk for a snack attack. Making dinner after work, socializing at a party, watching TV, or surfing the Internet are a few dangerous scenarios for mindless snacking. Gum with a big flavor punch overpowers other foods so they don’t taste good.
