The Basic Regimen To Brighten Up Your Skin Naturally

Read Time:2 Minute, 29 Second




glowing skinWe are all born with baby soft, supple, and glowing skin. So what happens along the way to reduce the glow? As the years pass, we suffer exposure to UV rays, pollution, dirt, and so many harmful substances and forces making our skin lose the brightness and turn dull and dry.

Usually, dullness sets in because the outer layer of skin – the epidermis, piles up dead skin and dirt, unless we remove them regularly. In addition, most women start to use make-up around their teenage years, and these cosmetic products clog the skin pores, worsening the dull outer layer. The clogging prevents the skin from expelling built up carbon dioxide, and absorbing oxygen, increasing the loss of skin glow.

The basic healthy beauty regimen must include cleaning and toning, incorporating facials once a week, to enable you to recharge and brighten your skin naturally.

Cleanse:

Wash your face twice every day, with warm water and a suitable cleansing agent getting rid of the day’s accumulated dirt, dead skin, makeup, and oil. If you have seriously oily skin, use a mild soap. However, keep in mind to use a product – whether cleanser or soap – it must gently remove the debris, but not steal any of the moisture that is vital to your skin. After you cleanse, the skin should feel fresh, but not stretched. At bedtime, use a cleansing product to remove makeup and accumulated dirt.

Tone:

After each cleansing, don’t forget to tone. This restores a healthy Ph balance, and helps to close the newly opened skin pores, preventing the loss of essential skin oils and moisture. Choose a soothing toner to remove any remaining makeup, dirt, or cleanser, and to hydrate your skin as well as restore the natural pH balance. If you have oily skin, you need an oil free toner, and dry skin needs an alcohol free toner. Choose one that contains natural ingredients including orange peel, chamomile, or coneflower to help brighten your skin gently.

Extra treatment:

Along with the cleaning and conditioning, give your skin regular repair, paying attention to sun damage, blemishes, fine lines, discoloration, and patchy complexion. Choose products suited to your specific skin type, preferably with additives like salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acids, green tea extracts, Vitamins A, C and E, etc.

Moisturize and Protect:

Your skin, like your body, needs water to survive. Round off the daily skin regimen with a natural moisturizer to replenish the moisture to refresh your cells. Effective moisturizers supply much needed moisture, and form a barrier or shield on your skin, preventing moisture from escaping, and keeping dirt and debris from penetrating your skin.

Exfoliate:

Exfoliation removes dead skin from the outer layer of the epidermis. Exfoliate two to three times a week using a facial scrub, or sugar solution. Dampen the skin and massage the scrub or the sugar solution in with gentle motions for about two minutes. Rinse with warm water to remove the mixture.

More Secrets to Beautiful Hair

Read Time:6 Minute, 57 Second

Beautiful HairIn my last article, “The Secret to Beautiful Hair”, I discussed some of the things you could do to help give yourself beautiful hair. I discussed mostly exercise and lifestyle. Here I will talk about healthy hair habits and diet. Diet is ultra important. You are what you eat, as the old saying goes.

 

So here are a few more of my “secrets” to beautiful hair:

 

Healthy Foods



Brazil nuts: high in selenium, which is needed for strong flexible hair.

 

Walnuts: alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid – Sprinkle them on your salads for a great texture and taste.

 

Don’t overdo the nuts (or anything else for that matter). They are high in calories, so don’t make a snack of them.

 

Remember, the idea is to maintain balance. You should only eat about 1500 calories a day when you are at your ideal weight. You might need more or less, depending on your size and lifestyle, but you will be surprised at how little you need to eat and still be very healthy.

 

Dark green vegetables: Leafy greens like spinach, collard greens, chard and others all contain high amounts of iron and other essential minerals that are great for healthy hair. You can also include broccoli in this group. They are all high in vitamins A and C. Your body uses these to produce sebum, your natural hair conditioner.

 

And don’t forget carrots. These are a great source of vitamin A, which gives great flexibility and strength to hair. It also adds that extra sheen that makes your hair glow.

 

Poultry: Turkey and chicken are high in healthy protein. You need this for healthy hair. Hair is mostly Keratin, a protein that makes up skin, hair and fingernails. They are also low in fats, so they don’t affect your heart in a bad way.

Fish, especially salmon or mackerel: These oily fish contain lots of omega-3 fatty acids that keep your scalp and skin healthy. They also strip cholesterol from the blood and keep your heart healthy. Try to eat fish 2-3 times a week. If you can’t or don’t eat meats, then you can substitute flaxseed. Toss a hand full on your salads and pastas.

 

Grains, especially oatmeal: My grandmother used to make a skin conditioner out of cooked oatmeal and apply it to her face, hands and arms. She still looked young and healthy well into her 90s. But you can just eat it. Have it for breakfast with blueberries for sweetener. It is wonderful. It is also great for the hair, as it also contains soluble fiber, vitamins and minerals. Along with fish, it is also one of the best foods for reducing cholesterol.

 

Blueberries are one of the most effective anti-oxidants. Oxidants are the result of the body’s process of converting food to energy. They are also called free radicals. These elements combine with other cells in your body and cause damage to the cells. It is the primary cause of aging. Antioxidant foods like blueberries soak up the oxidants and keep them from damaging your skin and hair.

 

Green tea: keeps your arteries open and flexible for good circulation. This is essential for the production of healthy hair.

 

Reduce the amount of meats you eat to about 25% of your diet. Stay away from the burgers and fries! Eat less and you will live longer, and that is a proven fact.

 

Oh yes. Cut out salt. I call it the White Death. If you use spices and seasonings, you won’t need it. Your food already contains all your body needs. Salt just stiffens the arteries. Remember it is used as a preservative for meats. It dries them out and it will dry you out too.

 

Get plenty of exercise. Start out slowly. Go for a walk. Walk about half as far as you think you can. Remember, you have to walk back. Make it a habit. Once you get used to doing it every morning or evening, you will find you relax more. Tension and stress are hair killers.

 

Keep tight things away from around your head. You need the circulation for healthy hair. Wigs can be a killer in this regard. The skull cap fits tightly around the head. This limits blood circulation, which is something you don’t want. It also traps heat and chokes off air circulation, which is also needed for healthy hair. If you wear a wig too often, you may find that your hair is becoming thinner or weaker. If you notice extra shedding or changes in the quality of your hair, it might be time to switch to another solution.

 

Wigs are great for an occasional evening out, but if you really need to wear them on a regular basis, give your head and hair a break at every opportunity. Either let it go natural or wear a scarf or something light when you are out running errands or shopping. At home, don’t put anything on your head. Comb your hair out and let it fly. Just try not to scare old people or little kids.

 

Wherever possible, use hair extensions rather than a wig. They may be a bit more inconvenient to put in, but they allow for good circulation, both for blood and air. Just make sure the braids aren’t too tight. If they are not comfortable, have them loosened a bit. They should be firm, but not pulling or painful.

 

Get someone to gently massage your scalp, or brush your hair gently to pull the natural conditioning oils out along the hair shaft. If you have straight or wavy hair, this can be done on a daily or at least regular basis. But if you are of African descent, be careful not to overdo it. Because of our tight coils, the hair is easily broken and knotted, so do this sparingly.

 

Keep the ends trimmed. Split ends will tear further along the hair, so when you notice you have them, trim the ends just above the splits.

 

Remember, the secret to beautiful hair is a healthy you. Maintain a balance in all you do. Balance activity with relaxation, eating with exercise. And be sure to include lots of peaceful moments. Instead of TV, read a book. It is better for the mind and the quiet will help settle the nerves. Spend time with friends and the ones you love. Most of all, love yourself.

 

I am Casey Lee, CEO of Remy Hair Discounters [http://www.remyhairdiscounters.com/IndianHairExtensions.htm], a supplier of Indian Remy hair extensions. I am the owner of Remy Hair Discounters.

 

I first became interested in hair extensions because my own hair is very stiff and hard to handle. Nothing short of cement will make it stay where I want it. It sticks out everywhere and doesn’t look good no matter what I do. So I turned to hair extensions as a way to give myself a smoother, more beautiful look.

 

When I started looking for hair, I tried all the cheapest things I could find. But they all had problems. They shed, or worse, they tangled and matted so badly I couldn’t get a comb through the hair. The hair turned dull and lifeless. Synthetic hair was too shiny and didn’t look natural. But the worst thing was that the poor quality meant that they didn’t last very long, so I spent more money buying new extensions.

 

Then I found Indian Remy Hair. This stuff is wonderful! It always looks great. It doesn’t tangle and just combs right out, better than my own hair. I can wear it in the shower just like my own. True, it is a bit more expensive than all the other junk I tried, but in the long run it is well worth it. So I started Remy Hair Discounters so that I can bring beautiful hair to others who have problems with what nature gave them. Or even those who just want a change once in a while.

Yoga For Healing The Body And Mind Connection

Read Time:2 Minute, 52 Second

yoga for skin diseasesWhile many people know that stress can have a huge impact on their body, the opposite is true as well. Reducing stress can help keep the body healthy or reduce pain and bring the body back to a healthy place. Many people use yoga for healing the mind and the body. It’s a calming yet energizing exercise regime that will help heal the body of harmful problems like high blood pressure, inflammation and arthritis.

 


Stress and Yoga
The body reacts to stress by tensing, which causes many health issues like stiff neck, headaches and back aches. It can even contribute to jaw pain since people tend to grit their teeth when stressed. It can also lead to high blood pressure, anxiety and skin conditions. Much of the time when someone visits their doctor, the ailment is the result of stress.

 

Yoga helps reduce stress, which can increase the quality of life and improve health. With the reduction of stress comes the lowering of blood pressure, tension and anxiety. These are all contributing factors in most health problems.

 

Pain and Yoga

 

Whether it’s arthritis, inflammation or an injury, joint pain can cause serious aches and pains throughout the entire body. An arthritic knee can cause hip pain as well as pain in the feet and ankles. Tennis elbow or a shoulder injury can radiate pain throughout the neck and head too. Pain can affect the body but it also takes a toll on the mind too.

 

The painless, smooth exercises and positions in yoga are perfect for reducing pain and inflammation whether it’s from an injury or arthritis. The joints move fluidly without the grinding or stress associated with other exercise programs. It improves balance and flexibility, which are common problems with joint inflammation too.

 

The Mind Body Connection

 

Stress, anxiety and depression are proven to have a negative impact on health. Yoga helps to reduce negative emotions and problems while substituting positive ones. The combination of breathing, exercise and simple meditative poses can positively influence the connection between the body and the mind where it might have once been negative.

Yoga is a powerful and positive influence over the mind and the body.

 

Improves blood pressure

 

Increases heart rate

 

Increases flexibility

 

Improves breathing

 

Stretches the joints and muscles without impact

 

Opens the muscles and airways in the chest to improve breathing and digestion

 

Increases blood flow and circulation

 

Anyone with stress, physical pain or emotional anxiety can use yoga for the healing benefit received when practicing various poses and breathing exercises. The most important part of any yoga pose is the breathing, which acts as a meditative process. Like breathing through labor, the act of breathing has influence over pain. It helps to center the body and the mind too.

 

Along with the stretching benefits to the muscles and bones in the body, yoga can help a person get into better shape whether they need to lose weight or not. The healthier the body, the better it will be able to fight off infection, colds and disease. It increases physical wellness, which influences how the body responds to pain and discomfort as well as ailments like germs and disease.

Skin care products are a natural part of anyone’s beauty regimen. It is vital to know that not all skin products are the same, and some can actually cause harm to your skin. Choose skin products that contain natural ingredients known to be effective in caring for the skin like phytessence wakame, grapeseed oil, manuka honey, and jojoba oil.

Spend Nothing With These Natural Beauty Tips

Read Time:2 Minute, 30 Second

beauty tipsBeauty, they say, is in the eyes of the beholder. Despite this, most women would still kill just to have a flawless skin and a beautiful face. While some are born to be naturally beautiful others can still make themselves look beautiful with all the techniques and beauty tips available everywhere. There are so many tips on the internet on how to apply make-up, how take care of the skin and the different natural beauty tips that would enhance every part that spells out beauty.


Being beautiful is not just one of the whims of women. It is something that is needed to boost one’s confidence may it be at work or even while walking on the street with a friend or by oneself. Being beautiful and having a pleasing personality would be somebody’s edge when applying for a job or when trying to seal a deal with a prospect client. Whatever reason it is for, being beautiful is what every woman needs.

Wearing make up is not the best way to enhance one’s beauty. Every woman wants to look younger than their age but most women think it cost a lot to achieve this. Little did they know that following some natural beauty tips to initially make the skin healthy and glowing would be a good first move. It is natural that as women age, wrinkles start to make them worry and ruin their lives. Thus, sleeping on one’s back would help prevent wrinkles and wearing less make up everyday would keep the moisture of the face. Washing the face with soap many times a day would damage the facial skin thus, when needed, just wash your face with water.

Natural Beauty Tips don’t only include external remedies such as natural skin care treatment. Following a healthy diet which is rich in omega 3 fatty acids and foods that are rich in healthy fats such as fish would definitely condition the body inside out. While stress deteriorates the condition of the skin, it can be counteracted by eating a lot of vegetables and fruits to keep the body in proper function. Also, never underestimate the power of water. Drinking plenty of water at least 8-10 glasses a day would rejuvenate the skin cells coupled with enough sleep at night.

Looking beautiful and maintaining a healthy glowing skin doesn’t need to be expensive. Before deciding on getting a surgery or a medical skin treatment, it wouldn’t hurt if you try the natural beauty tips first. This would make your budget light and would free you from the stress of overspending for unnecessary treatments to enhance your beauty. On top of it all, being beautiful is not all about the outside appearance, maintaining a clean conscience and the beauty deep within would make a very great package for your well-being.

The Benefits of Yoga

Read Time:2 Minute, 22 Second

tips for glowing skinIf you are looking for a glowing beautiful skin, a strong & flexible body, good health, peaceful mind or an opportunity to lose weight- all these and more can be achieved through yoga. Yoga is often limited to yoga poses (asanas).

Therefore, the benefits are limited to the body level and thus people fail to appreciate the benefits yoga provides in uniting the mind, body and breath. When a person attains harmony, life becomes happier, calmer and more fulfilling. Some of the benefits derived from practicing yoga retreat include:

• All-round fitness

A person becomes truly healthy when they are physically, mentally and emotionally balanced. Health is more than the absence of disease but also dynamic expressions of life through loving, enthusiasm and joy. Yoga helps to achieve these qualities through postures, meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques)
• Inner peace

Most people enjoy visiting serene spots, endowed with natural beauty. However, peace can be generated right within us. Yoga is recommended highly as an effective way of providing calm to a disturbed mind. You can consider taking yoga retreats to experience peace anytime.

• Stress relief

Practicing yoga several minutes daily can help a great deal in getting rid of stress- in the mind and body. Yoga postures, meditation, and pranayama are effective methods that can be relied upon in releasing stress. Furthermore, yoga helps to detox the body while releasing the mind from stress.


• Weight loss

Kapal Bhati pranayama and sun salutations are some of the ways practitioners get to lose weight. Furthermore, the regular practice of yoga makes the practitioners to become sensitive with the type of food they eat and when they get to eat it. This helps a great deal in keeping a check on the weight.

• Improved immunity

The human system is a blend of the mind, body and spirit. An irregularity within the body affects the mind. On the other hand, restlessness or unpleasantness in the mind often manifests itself in the form of an ailment. Yoga postures massage the organs and strengthen the muscles whereas meditation and respiration techniques unharness stress additionally to up immunity.

Yoga is considered safe for the majority of healthy people, particularly when practiced in a certified yoga teacher training center. However, it must be appreciated bodies are different- therefore, yoga postures need to be modified according to the abilities of an individual.

Finding an experienced trainer who is attentive to an individual’s ability is the first step in ensuring an effective and safe yoga practice. If a particular posture is uncomfortable you do not have to do it. Good instructors will help you understand while encouraging you to try other poses without exceeding your limits.

How Yoga Improves Morale in The Workplace

Read Time:3 Minute, 20 Second

face glowThe working -day can be very pressured. From working long hours to having to deal with personal issues, a lot of stress can be accumulated even by the time you are at work for just a few hours.

 

To the company’s aspects, having employees who are pressured and unhappy are not going to be as productive at work. When the employees are not productive at work the company does not get what needs to be done, and will ultimately not make as much profit as possible. From the employees perspective being stressed will cause a strain on your mental health throughout the entire day. Your boss will be able to recognize that you are not in a good mood; which could lead to an issue between you and your boss.


One of the ways to battle pressure in your life is through yoga. Yoga is an excellent way to relax, regain composure, and to alleviate the pain from any previous experiences in your day. The great part about yoga is that there are many different levels from beginner to advanced. The beginner yoga is that the focus for rising morale and reducing stress throughout the workday. A basic yoga session doesn’t need to take long in the least. in only 20-30 minutes you’ll be able to perform all the yoga poses, stretches, and meditation necessary to be a lot of relaxed and stress free for the remainder of your workday.

The start of a basic yoga session would begin with some stretching and breathing. You would sit on your yoga mat, feet straight out in front of you and reach slowly for your toes. breathing is the important element. Even if you are in-flexible, you want to breathe into the stretch. Inhale very slowly counting one, two, three, four, and exhale slowly counting one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. You want to perform this stretch and breathing for about 45 seconds. Your breath is what relaxes you, it keeps you calm and makes sure you are going at a slow relaxed pace. You want to focus on that breath pattern during every exercise.


The next part of the yoga session is basic poses. An excellent opener is the child’s pose. In this pose you want to sit on your knees on the mat, then extend your arms out in front of you as far as they will go. Put your palms flat on the ground, make sure that your knees remain on the mat and your back is straight. This pose stretches out the back, a place where a lot of stress and anxiety is stored. This pose should be done for about 2-3 minutes. Another excellent beginning yoga pose is the downward, and upward dog poses. These two poses stretch out your hips and lower back. These should be done for about one minute each all while breathing in and out slowly.The finishing pose of a typical yoga session is the corpse pose.

The corpse pose is performed by laying flat on your back, hands on each side of you laying flat. This pose is to totally relax the body and mind of everything. You want to clear your mind of any stresses or anxiety you may have previously had. The goal is to think about nothing at all. This pose is very unique because not many people think about nothing at all in their day. This should be done for 5-7 minutes, or longer if desired.

 

Taking a break from the workday is crucial. I recommend after lunch as a good time to do a 20 minute yoga session. The yoga will relax you and make you less stressed and feel better about yourself and the day. Encourage management at your job to get involved also. The management will want higher morale and better productivity. It is a win-win situation for both sides.

Yoga Ancient Practice Younger for You

Read Time:2 Minute, 33 Second

Yoga Ancient Practice YoungerHave you been searching for ways to look and feel younger? Don’t worry. You have at least one thing in common with the rest of us-you haven’t discovered a fountain of youth. If you had, you’d be busy bottling that magical water rather than reading about yoga, right?

But don’t be discouraged! Here are some surprising things yoga can do for you.

One: Increased energy level – You have a life force called “chi” flowing through your body. Yoga allows you to find out if that energy is blocked. You will learn how to free up this vitality and rejuvenate your spirit.

Two: Flexibility – If you’re not quite as limber as you once were, yoga practice will help. You’ll be more active and less vulnerable to injuries. You’ll even heal more quickly if you do get hurt-just like you did when you were younger.


Three: Better Sleep – According to Alejandra Chaoul-Reich, a graduate student at Rice University, yoga practice can help you sleep better-no pills, no warm milk, no sheep. Take hold of your mind. Manage your thoughts using yoga meditation. Then use specific relaxing poses to invite sleep.

Four: Stress relief – Simultaneous muscle stretching and focused breathing benefits you in two ways. Tense muscles relax while you release emotional stress. Rediscover your calm, youthful state of mind.

Five: Weight Loss – Revisit your younger and lighter days. You need not choose a strenuous type of yoga, to shed some pounds! With a gentler practice, you’ll become more aware of which foods your body really needs, and your diet will change.

Six: Younger-looking Skin – Save some of the time and money you invest in age-defying creams and cosmetics. Deep yoga breathing oxygenates your whole body, giving your skin a rosy glow. There are even facial yoga exercise that reduce wrinkles!


Seven: Improved Mood and Attitude – When you practice yoga, you won’t just learn good posture and deep breathing. You’ll train your mind. With time, you will gain more control over your thoughts. This flexible thinking will affect your mood, and in turn your attitude. Free yourself from those older ways of thinking-don’t get bent out of shape.
