Published

on

By

There are certain special events in our lives that warrant using hair, beauty and make-up artists. One popular reason is using them on your wedding day. Knowing which artist to hire can be tricky and hiring a professional is important. Continue reading to find out why.

Normally women have a trusted hairstylist which they use regularly. But when it comes to makeup and beauty care very few women have personal professional hair, beauty and makeup artists available. When the need for one arises they don’t have any idea about how to hire one.

Many women will start asking their friends for referrals or look on the internet for any local hair, beauty and makeup artists. The beauty industry is a big business with new makeup artists constantly coming onto the scene. Some makeup artists work at cosmetic counters while others sell cosmetics or work in the fashion and entertainment industry.

There is a difference in hiring someone to do your makeup versus booking a professional. Professional hair, beauty and makeup artists would have gone to school to learn their trade and have become a licensed esthetician or facial specialist. Other’s learn their skills from the ground up, training hands on. They would be very familiar with working with brides and other private functions.

Many hair, beauty and make-up artists make a living working in the film, television or magazine and catalogue industries. They will also work closely with all types of models and therefore have lots of experience.

A professional hair, beauty and make-up artist will understand skin types and bone structure. They will know how to use and sanitize their tools correctly. They will also have a good understanding of contouring and shading to compliment or even hide eye, nose and cheek bones flaws.

Good hair, beauty and makeup artists have a goal to make you happy with their service. They might recommend products to you, but their main objective is not to sell you a line of beauty products.

When looking for hair, beauty and makeup artists don’t always go with the lowest price. A picture can last many, many years and looking your best on that special is really important to you. It just might be worth spending that extra money to get a top makeup artist.

When hiring a make-up artist check out their credentials and see if they have a professional license or not, hiring a licensed professional makes you feel more comfortable. You know that they have had the proper training to do your hair and makeup correctly. They should also carry a portfolio with photos of their work. This way you know you are getting a good hair, beauty & makeup artists and will receive exactly what you are paying for.

Dental Care and You: 3 Healthy Teeth Drinks, 1 to Avoid

Published

on

By

It’s common for people to never think twice about what they drink and how it is affecting their teeth. The reality is that people may cause harm to their teeth by making the wrong choice of beverage.

Most people know that proper dental care involves brushing and flossing regularly, as well as seeing the dentist every six months for a check up and cleaning. What many people do not realize is that proper dental care also involves knowing what to drink, and being careful about what quantities are consumed.

Some beverages are very beneficial to your dental health. Here are three examples of drinks to consider:

Not just antioxidants – green tea

Green tea is a healthy drink that supplies you with antioxidants that have been shown to help prevent plaque build up on teeth. Drinking green tea on a regular basis may help to reduce cavities and lower the risk for gum disease. Tea has also been shown to help fight bacteria that causes bad breath.

Rich in calcium – milk

Milk is beneficial for teeth, especially for children. It’s low in acid and a beverage that contains high levels of calcium. Calcium is great for keeping enamel strong since teeth are largely made up of it. This helps promote healthy white teeth – and a great smile.

An ancient source – spring water

Water is naturally good for the body. It can help wash away debris in the mouth that may be stuck between teeth. Water can contain minerals that help restore a natural balance in your teeth. Natural spring water is a great choice or water filtered using a reverse-osmosis process – you can then enhance it with some natural mineral drops, after the unhealthy contaminants are removed.

A drink to avoid

Not everything you drink is good for the teeth. One of the main ingredients in beverages that is damaging to teeth is sugar. Sugar causes cavities which can decay your teeth. Another harmful ingredient is acid. Acid wears away tooth enamel and can leads to cavities and other damage to your teeth and gum. These two things together create the environment for serious tooth damage.

Together, they are found in soda pop. Soda pop is not a very healthy beverage. It is not just soda, though. Really anything that contains sugar or is highly acidic can be harmful.

Fruit juices, coffee and energy drinks contain sugar and acids that can be damage your teeth. Of course, it is possible to make healthier beverages like tea, milk and water less healthy by adding sugar or sweetened flavorings. It’s best to stay with natural drinks and not add anything that could do more harm than good.

Instead of drinking soda, try some green tea, milk or water. Tea, milk and water can often be a much better way to satisfy your thirst – and they are much more beneficial to your dental health.

Try swapping soda or other sugary and acidic drinks for one of these better choices. Making the choice of better beverages will keep your teeth healthier throughout your life.

Will The Next Big Health And Wellness MLM Be Ceregenex?

Published

on

By

Encouraging cellular health naturally to encourage more function, energy, and defense against free-radicals is the thrust of a new MLM called Ceregenex.

Even in these hard economic times, the growth of home based businesses is breaking records. Whether people need to move to this type of business because they choose to or because the economy forces them to, they’re deciding not to rely for their incomes on corporations that can’t support growth. As an independent distributor, you can participate in network marketing and be in direct contact with where the products and services you sell come from as well as who they’re going to.

But even though there’s a lot of growth in MLM, it’s still a business and must be approached that way, knowing that supply and demand must be in your favor. Both sides of this equation will be limited on both ends. People are pulling back from spending all over the globe, so demand can’t be taken for granted anymore.

The niche of home based businesses that Ceregenex seeks to fill is pretty saturated already. Other businesses have tried and failed recently. When the big companies close their doors, marketing, management, and training functions disappear for the small distributor, which means everything is lost. But some people stay to beat a dead horse because they’re scared to walk away from the time and cash they’ve put in so they keep trying.

That means you can start with Ceregenex as long as you realize the problems and learn how to give yourself a unique persona within Ceregenex itself and also within the world of similar MLMs.

That’s even more necessary if this is among your first steps into the world of MLMs. Finding the correct team will be of primary importance when you enter the world of Ceregenex.

Ceregenex uses the binary model of compensation. This doesn’t thrill me because it needs lots of planning and can somewhat fool those who don’t have a lot of MLM experience.

This system means you get paid a percentage of your sales as you build your down line. But you only get paid on one of two legs or strands of your sales, and it’s the one with less volume. You have to keep balanced on these two legs so you can earn more, even more than with other plans. But if a distributor you bring in brings in lots of cash because of being a great marketer, it can put you out of balance so that you don’t really earn everything you should have.

Another problem with regard to Ceregenex that I can foresee is that bonuses are a big part of their financial incentive, which is good for those who are experienced in online marketing but not for beginners. Those who can already do this well can get with Ceregenex, earn big money, and move along, meaning that their down liners then have to figure out how to make money by themselves.

I’m not thinking that it would be beneficial for a newbie MLM person to select Ceregenex for their first experience.

Essential Vitamins for Fighting Grey Hair!

Published

on

By

Scientifically hair turns grey when hydrogen peroxide accumulates in the body and bleaches the hair. There are various natural supplements available on the market that provide essential nutrients that help restore the natural color of hair.

Did you know that age is not the only reason why we have grey hair? There are many different reasons why most people have grey hair prematurely. Body produces hydrogen peroxide, which is a naturally-occurring bleaching agent causing the hair strands to lose their natural color. In order to prevent this from happening, you can take vitamins that restore the natural color of hair.

Before going any further, you should know that Vitamins are just as important to promote faster hair growth as to maintain healthy looking and stronger hair. Vitamins such as A, C and E are essential to help fight the free radicals that would bleach your hair and lead to grey hair.

Vitamins for grey hair

Overall, Vitamin B12 is the most essential vitamin to maintain healthy hair and slow down the greying hair. Vitamin B12 can help to regulate the secretion of natural oil to keep the hair moisturized and healthy.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids are also essential nutrients that you should take to prevent grey hair. Omega-3 can stimulate your melanocytes to produce sufficient amounts of melanin pigment so that the hair will maintain its natural color. Rich sources of Omega-3 include tuna, trout, herring, salmon, flaxseeds and walnuts.

Some other essential minerals like Folic Acid, Silica and Iodine can also help to prevent grey hair. In addition, certain amino acids can help with hair growth and make hair strong to prevent brittleness. Zinc can help to regulate the natural oils and Iodine will maintain moisture for longer periods for healthy hair growth.

There are various vitamin supplements on the market that will help to prevent grey hair. These supplements contain catalase enzyme in a high concentration. Catalase enzyme can help to break down and prevent hydrogen peroxide from building up. In addition to catalase enzyme, the vitamin contains natural herbs, plants and mineral additives that will help to restore the natural beauty and luster of your hair.

Here are some important things to consider when taking supplements to prevent grey hair:

When you are taking Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Copper, it is important to consider the amount that is already in your body and how well they are absorbed in your system. An excessive amount of copper can increase estrogen and damage the normal functioning of your liver and thyroid gland. On the other hand, an excessive amount of Omega-3 can cause you to have allergic reactions like swelling, redness, bleeding and gastrointestinal discomfort. Therefore, it is important to consult your doctor before taking Omega-3 and Copper.

In conclusion, you need to remember that it is vital to maintain a diet with essential vitamins and nutrients to stop grey hair. Ultimately, taking vitamins for grey hair will help you to maintain stronger and healthier hair.

Best Over the Counter Toenail Fungus Treatment – Do They Really Work?

Published

on

By

If you are looking for the best over the counter toenail fungus treatment then, you need to think twice because no two treatment methodologies are meant to yield the same results. If you really seek toenail fungus pain treatment then, you need to first understand how to check the health of your nails.

Here is a quick look at how you can check the health of your nails:

Nails are considered healthy when they are shiny on the outer surface and free from cracks or chips at the edges. In case your nails are fading in their original color or are displaying signs of separations (especially in the middle portion of the nail) then, you need to be aware that your nail health is being compromised.

1. Check the Condition of Your Skin: In the first step, you need to ascertain whether your nail is infected or not. You need to check the skin that is affixed to your nail. In case the skin is in good condition and is pink in color, all is well. If on the other hand, the skin is split or showing signs of separations then, your nail is infected.

2. The Shape of Your Toenail: You might also want to cross check the shape of your toe nail. If it remains even and smooth, your nail is in good condition. If on the other hand, it appears bulbous or scoops inwards, it seems to be damaged. In case your toe appears like a spoon then again, it is a sign of infection.

3. Blood and Pain: When you toe is infected with fungus, it starts to decay. While this is a rather slow process, the pain is the first tell-tale sign. When it gets worse, you can expect to see tiny droplets of blood oozing from the sides of your nail.

4. The Change in Natural Color: In case the color of your nail has changed from white to pale yellow or even light yellow, it is a sign of fungal infection. Cracks and splits on the surface of your nail are also an indicator of an infection setting in.

5. Brittle and Hard: Usually, your nails have a soft texture. When pressed gently, they tend to sink inwards into your soft skin. On the contrary, nails that are infected with fungus tend to become brittle. They are hard and appear to break if you press on them too hard.

6. Inflammation and Redness is Visible: The nail on your toe is infected if there is a red patch appearing onto its surface. At times, your nail might have patches of different colors visible clearly on the surface. This too is a clear sign that your toe nail is infected with fungus.

7. The Thickness of a Nail: An ideal nail thickness is less than.50mm. In case you notice that your nail is thicker than this permissible limit, it is caused by fungal infection.

How to Maintain Optimal Nail Health?

It is not very difficult to maintain good nail health. If you are always rushed for work and have little time for your health and hygiene then, following these ‘easy to follow’ tips might save your toe from being infected by fungal infection:

1) The first step to maintain healthy nails is to clean them with warm water and mild soap. Each time you return from work or play, you should wash your feet and dry them with a clean towel.

2) You should only wear socks when your feet have completely dried. If you wear a pair of socks on wet feet then, chances of infecting your nails with fungus are high.

3) It is advisable to wear a pair of socks while stepping out of your house. Even if you wear slippers, cover your feet with socks so as to avoid dirt from seeping into your nails.

4) If you have long toenails then, you need to snip the extra length using a good quality nail-cutter. This shall stop any fungal infection from entering the elongated nail. Trimming nails often dissuades fungus from entering the nail cavity (as there is none available).

5) Your nails need to be protected from injuries. If they are injured, get the correct treatment as soon as possible. If left untreated, injured nails can easily fall prey to fungal infection. So, get them treated as soon as possible.

Conclusion:

In order to get free from fungal infection, you need to avoid best otc toenail fungus treatment methods. These methods are not trustworthy and may lead to side effects thereby leading to long term health complications.

Instead, you should choose a natural toenail fungus treatment method that has been tried and tested globally to provide relief to patients without causing any adverse side effects. Your chosen cure should be natural, free from chemicals, addictive and made from a concoction of proven herbs and plant extracts.

Gemstones to Increase the Beauty of the Beholders

Published

on

By

Gemstones or precious stones are pieces of mineral crystals which can be cut, polished and shaped to beautifully reflect its inherent color and light to the beholder. These crystals are used as centerpieces or adornments for jewelry or other decorative items, such as watches or showpieces. Certain rocks like lapis lazuli, or organic products like pearl and amber are also considered as gemstones. Out of over 130 different types of precious stones available on earth, the current origins of four popular types are discussed below for reference.

Opals

Opals are found commonly all over the world but all are not in the precious stone category. The stones of high quality and beauty are found in the Australian Outback gem mines. These mines account for over 90% of the world’ total precious, jewelry-grade opals. Some opal mines of Ethiopia have also started production of high-quality white opals, popularly known as Welo opals. The fire opals of Mexico are bright, yellow-colored stones favored greatly by the jewelers of today.

Rubies

The Burmese (now Myanmar) Ruby has been greatly prized the world over for its rarity and demand due to its special intrinsic qualities. The “pigeon-blood” Burmese rubies are some of the rarest and most sought-after gemstones in the world. These rubies radiate light and display a dazzling kaleidoscope under ultraviolet or sun ray. Myanmar still has a considerable number of ruby mines, but the general quality has come down from the previous yields. East African nations like Tanzania, Mozambique and Madagascar are the newer sources of these fine gemstones since the 1960s. Also, new ruby deposits have been found in Vietnam and Greenland in recent times.

Emeralds

The Columbian emeralds command the best value in the world due to its high quality and steady production since the ancient times. These green gemstones contain chromium, which is responsible for its intrinsic coloring. The other South American country producing good quality emeralds is Brazil. The precious stones from its mines contain traces of vanadium and are tinged with a slight gray or brown color. Zambia in Africa also produces high-quality emeralds. The Zambian stones contain iron traces but are clearer than the other produces and often reflect a bluish-green color. The more modern emerald findings include the Panjsheer Valley mines of Afghanistan, whose quality is comparable to the Columbian gemstones.

Sapphires

The best quality and the most beautiful-looking blue sapphires came from the mines in the Kashmir region of India in the past. These “cornflower blue” gemstones currently occupy places of pride in the jewelry collections of the connoisseurs and museums. The Myanmar sapphires from the Mogok region are also prized all over the world. Sri Lanka produces the most number of these gemstones in many other colors along with the signature blue. The American state of Montana also produces light-blue and pink sapphires on a smaller scale.

What You Didn’t Know About Skin Cancer Could Kill You

Published

on

By

We must understand that if we were meant to spend the greater part of our lives underground and hidden from the outdoors, only appearing socially at night, then nature would have arranged for us to be born rodents and not humans.

Fluorescent lighting may save some money, but it takes a bigger toll on your health. The UV emissions from ceiling fixtures have been linked to a higher risk of melanoma skin cancer by the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Researcher Dr. Helen Shaw and her team conducted a melanoma study at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and at the Sydney Melanoma Clinic in Sydney Hospital. They found that office workers had twice the incidence of the deadly cancer as people who worked outdoors. The results of the study were published in 1982 by the British medical journal Lancet. Dr. Shaw proved that those who spent most of their time exposed to natural sunlight had by far the lowest risk of developing skin cancer. In sharp contrast to those living or working outdoors, office workers, who were exposed to artificial light during most of their working hours had the highest risk of developing melanomas. She also discovered that fluorescent lights cause mutations in cultures of animal cells.

Dr. Shaw’s research led to the conclusion that both in Australia and Great Britain, melanoma rates were high among professional and office workers and low in people working outdoors. In other words, the Australians and British (and the rest of us) would be better off spending more time outside where there is plenty of UV light! Similar controlled studies were conducted at the New York University School of Medicine, which confirmed and substantiated Dr. Shaw’s research results.

Fluorescent lighting has also been known to cause headaches, eye problems such as night blindness, fatigue, concentration difficulties and irritability. It has also been observed that an increase in the brightness of fluorescent light leads to higher stress levels by raising cortisol hormone levels.

In a study conducted on US Navy personnel between 1974 and 1984, researchers found a higher incidence of skin cancers among sailors who had indoor jobs than those working outside. Those working both indoors and outdoors showed the most protection, with a rate 24 percent below the U.S. national average. Since none of the sailors spend their entire day outside, it could not be determined whether being outside all day would offer the highest degree of protection.

It is interesting to note that some of the hottest places in the U.S., such as Phoenix, Arizona, have the highest rates of skin cancers, but not because they expose their skin to the sun. Researchers are readily tempted to relate the alarming skin cancer rates to the sun and the fact that these areas are some of the hottest and sunniest in the country. But to hastily make that link without careful observation, without exhausting all possible parameters is foolish and irrational.

The extreme heat throughout much of the year keeps most people indoors during the day. As a result, although there is plenty of sunlight, people avoid it and develop health problems including cancers from underexposure rather than the other way round. There are now hundreds of scientific studies to show that vitamin D deficiency is one of the leading causes of cancer, including malignant melanomas.

However, don’t expect to hear about these studies from those who make a living of selling you sunscreens and treating cancers. It’s a trillion dollar business that’s too big to fail.

Model in a Bottle Makeup Setting Spray Review

Published

on

By

First, a little about the product and what it does. Model In a Bottle Setting Spray is used to set your makeup. It’s used after you put on all of your makeup. A few spritzes after makeup application will give your makeup staying power. No reapplication of face powders or makeup needed.

I was a bit skeptical at first, but after using the product, I’m sold!

The Model In a Bottle Setting Spray did exactly as promised and then some. I applied my makeup at 5 a.m. in the morning. I went on with my day expected the product to be a failure. To my surprise it’s a winner.

I usually have to either reapply my makeup in different area, or do a complete re-application. Neither of those were needed.

Once applied, the product dries to a translucent matte finish. It has a fresh clean scent that goes away once the product dries. It doesn’t clog pores and doesn’t minimize the effectiveness of SPF. One bottle has about 300 sprays. I used two after applying my makeup.

Also, it’s not tested on animals.

The only cosmetic I re-applied was a little lip gloss. My makeup looked absolutely lovely all day long.

I didn’t remove my makeup until approximately 16+ hours later. My makeup looked as fresh as it did when I first applied it.

Model in a Bottle Setting Spray has two formulations. One for sensitive skin and one for normal skin. Whichever you choose, you won’t be disappointed.

The company offers other products that will keep you gorgeous all day long.

5 Natural Homemade Spa Treatments for Beautiful Skin

Published

on

By

We’d all love to have the beautiful shining skin that results from a luxurious spa facial treatment, but we don’t always have the time or we may not be willing to part with the money. Here are 5 ways to pamper your skin at home with items you might already have in your kitchen cupboards:

*Blackstrap molasses facial mask to draw out impurities – slather it directly onto dry face with the back of a spoon and then spread it around with your fingers to cover. Full of minerals in their natural form, this mask should be left on for around 20 minutes. It’s good to keep a cotton swab handy so that you can rub at any itchy spots without getting sticky black fingers. Rinse off with warm water.

*Honey and turmeric facial mask to tighten oily skin – mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder with a couple of tablespoons of honey (preferably organic) until combined – it will be lumpy. Spread all over dry face making sure T-zone is completely covered. Leave on around 20 minutes. Same as above, it’s a good idea to keep a cotton swab nearby, as the turmeric will stain your fingers yellow if you touch your face while wearing this mask. Rinse off with warm water, and then use a wet washcloth to remove last traces of yellow.

*Baking soda scrub to exfoliate – pour a couple of tablespoons of baking soda (not baking powder!) in a small saucer. Add water a little at a time, mixing with your fingers until it is moist enough to apply to face with your fingertips. Gently massage in circles all over face for 30 to 60 seconds and then rinse off with cool water.

*Apple cider vinegar to tone and close pores – apply directly to skin with a cotton ball. It should sting mildly for only a few seconds, but if you have sensitive skin you may want to dilute it with water before applying. Organic apple cider vinegar is best, but the regular version will work as well.

*Coconut oil to moisturize – dry skin will drink it up! Apply it directly with your fingers to add softness and a youthful glow to your complexion. Virgin coconut oil adds even more nutrients.
