Acne can quite definitely affect adults. According to Acne.org 25% of adult men and 50% of adult woman have had adult acne. The main causes are still the same, however, being hormone changes and stress, but added to this is cosmetics and resistant bacteria. Though acne can occur anywhere in the body, its usual places of occurrence include face, neck, shoulder, back, buttocks, thighs and rarely on hands and legs

1. Stress is a common factor in the production of acne in teenagers and adults. Getting a good night sleep and staying in control of homework and relationships will help reduce the production of oil and so the acne spots.

2. Eat more fish. Not only it is generally good for your health, but Omega 3 fats found in fish are essential for healthy skin and acne prevention. Best sources of Omega 3 are salmon, cod and tuna. Alternatively, you can take fish fat as a supplement.

3. Use herbal remedies for acne. A lot of herbal remedies are more effective in curing this skin condition compared to chemical treatments. Try the use of lemon juice. This should be used only at night because it can make your dermis photosensitive. Clean your face first with a gentle facial wash and apply lemon juice. It will sting a little. Massage it using a circular motion. Let it stay on your skin for about 30 minutes before washing it off.

4. The nature has gifted us with lots of herbs that possess natural skin cleansing properties. Herbs such as holy basil, aloe vera, guduchi, yasthtimadhu (licorice), neem (A. indica) etc. have been prescribed to treat various skin ailments since many years. They all have natural anti-inflammatory and anti-acne properties.

5. Some vitamins are essential for acne diet. Most important are Vitamin B5 and Vitamin A. In high doses Vitamin A gives great results to cure acne.

The usual position for a girl is the missionary position (man on top).

Finally, food also plays a part in your role to conceive a daughter. Certain foods help change your vaginal secretions to more alkaline which favors the female sperm more. Those foods include chocolate, sweets, fresh vegetables and fish. I guess the sugar and spice and all things nice really do apply to baby girls!

How The Beauty Supply Products Are Changing The World Of Make Up

  • Posted on June 12, 2017 at 10:37 am

Today’s beauty products are the outcome of thousands of years of experiments in cosmetics. The experiments started in Egyptian civilization still continue in various parts of the world. Moreover, today’s women should be considered the benefactor of years of mistakes committed by earlier civilizations. Women today have multitude of choices with respect to make up products. Modern day women enjoy a comprehensive range of beauty products sold at various beauty supply stores. Traditional beauty products which can be traced back to five thousand years were not as advanced as advanced are today’s cosmetic beauty products.

Thanks to the obsession to look beautiful among women the beauty product business has become a billion dollar industry where thousands of companies compete to capture lion’s share in the market. Some of the leading beauty supply products such as Brushes & Combs, Clippers & Trimmers, Curling Irons, Extensions, Flat Irons, Hair Care products, Hair Color, Hair Dryers, Hair Loss and Hair Removal products, Hair Setters, Hair Styling equipments, Hairpieces, Makeup Tools, Nail Care, Skin Care, Wigs, etc. are being produced in large quantities and sold through beauty product stores globally.

Whereas Europe and the USA with Japan are the leading manufacturing nations of beauty products, China is matching the pace with renewed interest to cash in the market. Despite several protests from animal rights activists claiming that numerous beauty creams are made using the bones and skins of some near to extinct animals, the production is continue unabatedly. People are following mad rush to become fair by using fairness creams. Interestingly enough most of the global brands in beauty products are from Western Europe and the USA followed by Japan which are inhabited by whites. So it is white people selling fairness creams to people who are not white to become white.

For example Maybelline has a world market share of 7.4%, Avon controls world market share of 5.4%, L’Oral Paris owns 5.3% of world market. Similarly, Lancme has world market share of 4% and Clinique has world market share of 3.6%.

Maharishi Ayurveda Skin Care Tips

  • Posted on June 12, 2017 at 8:44 am

You should know that less is more when it comes to your skin care. Be sure to allow your skin to breathe as much as you possibly can. There are many cosmetics and beauty products out there which increase sensitivity, dry out your skin, and trigger allergic reactions. Think of how you would care for a baby’s soft and sensitive skin; you wouldn’t put products with toxic chemicals on it, so why would you do that to your own skin? You can truly achieve glowing and healthy skin by skipping the synthetic products in favor of going back to nature, and Maharishi Ayurveda can help you do just that.

The following recipes for your skin care regime are from Maharishi Ayurveda, and are a great way to begin revitalizing your skin.

Dry Skin Cleansing Scrub

Mix 1/4 teaspoon almond powder, 1/4 teaspoon lavendar flower powder, 2 tablespoons yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon orange peel powder, and 2 teaspoons of quick-cooking oats. Once these ingredients are all combined well, use your clean fingertips to apply this mixture to your face. Be sure to be gentle when applying it to your face, as you would when applying anything else. Let the scrub set in a bit, and then rub it off gently. The scrub should come off your skin in flakes. If you have any sticky patches, just apply warm water and it should do the trick. Rinse any residue off of your face, and then gently pat it with a soft cloth or towel. Next, put on a nourishing moisturizer. The almond powder and instant oatmeal in this scrub make it an amazing exfoliator. The oats also help to protect against sun damage and also provide vitamins B and E. The orange peel has a softening effect on your skin.

If your skin is sensitive at all, use whole raw milk in place of the yogurt, and rose petal in place of the orange peel.

Oily Skin Exfoliating Scrub

Mix together 1/4 teaspoon almond powder, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon orange-peel powder, and 1 teaspoon toasted wheat bran. Apply it to your face in gentle, circular, and even movements. Wheat bran is great with cleaning out your pores, and the lemon juice has vitamin C, which helps with the scrubbing activity.

Dry Skin Moisturizer

Mix together 1/2 teaspoon lime or lemon juice, 3 drops lavender oil, 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil or cocoa butter, and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Apply this lightly to your face twice daily. This mixture may be stored in the fridge for up to a week.

Oily Skin Moisturizer

Mix together 1 teaspoon marshmallow powder, 1/4 teaspoon rose petals, 1 teaspoon white sandalwood powder, 1 teaspoon barley powder, and 1 teaspoon Organic Rose Water.

How To Be Truly Beautiful

  • Posted on June 11, 2017 at 2:38 pm

Are you a beautiful person?

No matter how you answered, I challenge you to think again. Let me pose the question another way:

Do you feel beautiful?

Thats a horse of a different color.

Ive heard people remark on how refreshing it is to meet someone real, genuine and authentic, confident and happy with who they are. These people radiate charm and grace as inner beauty emanates from the very core of their being. More than simply see it, we can feel it.

What makes them different? They are aware of who they are in a way that most others arent. Its hard to fathom if your concept of beauty is only skin deep. The world is rife with people whose outer beauty opened doors for them only to slam shut in their faces when the truth came out.

The fashion and cosmetics industries cash in on fears like this. Given the power of advertising, its no wonder so many people spend their lives focused on appearances and superficial fix-ups while neglecting what makes them truly beautiful.

Inner beauty improves with age and makes you grow more attractive with each passing year. Maybe you know someone like this how do they do it? What is their fountain of youth?

In many cases, the answer amounts to three little letters: e-g-o. For good reason, people who glow with inner beauty have created well-adjusted egos.

This is why many physically stunning people – the knockouts in the room – arent always so attractive when you get to know them better. Why? For nine out of ten, its ego. One way or another, fragile or frankly insufferable, thats the issue.

On the other hand, the people with healthy egos are easy to spot. Theyre confident and fun; they’re genuinely comfortable with who they are, and insecurity and self-doubt are virtually nonexistent. They can take a joke and dish it out with ease and grace; they let go of criticism, forgive more readily, and quickly dissolve resentment and the negative emotions that thwart happiness and self-esteem.

Free from the stressors that etch wrinkles into skin, you recognize their inner beauty when you look at them. You sense it when they walk into the room; they look and feel younger than their age, and almost everyone likes them.

Those whose egos serve them possess charisma and charm thats hard to put into words. They brew a captivating aura that adds grace and presence to the dynamic, and sometimes makes them downright irresistible.

This is true beauty. Think of it as truth in transcendence.

To be truly beautiful, learn to recognize, manage and play with your ego. Put it in its proper place as an indispensable asset, subordinate to and in the service of your authentic self.

The rewards await you.

Ways to Prevent Wrinkles and Protect Your Skin

  • Posted on June 5, 2017 at 5:37 pm

Wrinkles and fine lines are the most common problem of people that encounter skin-aging problems. Wrinkles can definitely change your appearance and make you look older. Of course, you want to maintain the natural health of your skin and the beauty you had when you were young, thats why you do the very best to make sure that you prevent wrinkles and fine lines from forming.
The first thing that you should do to get rid of wrinkles is to simply avoid the factors that can cause skin problems. Of course you cant avoid aging right? But you can prevent the signs of aging from existing by maintaining the skins health and applying skin care solutions that will help you to bring back the skins natural moisture.
Environmental factors like smoking and second hand smoke, air pollution, and overexposure to suns UV rays can easily be avoided. You just have to stop smoking, avoid places with second hand smoke and air pollution, and protect your skin from sun by applying skin care products with high SPF levels or by wearing a wide brimmed hat.

To prevent wrinkles, you should also maintain the skins natural health. Make sure that the skin is properly moisturized and hydrated by using skin care products with natural ingredients as natural moisturizers.
For instance, you can use skin care products with Shea butter. This ingredient is perfect for deeply hydrating your skin. It can also make your skin soft and smooth. Another moisturizer that you can use is active manuka honey. This ingredient can enhance the skins natural production of collagen and elastin. It can also be a perfect moisturizer that can bring back the skins natural hydration.
Cynergy TK is especially good at rejuvenating the skin. It is a unique bio-available form that stimulates the growth of new skin cells. It also stimulates the body to produce more collagen and elastin.
As you age your collagen and elastin supplies decrease. To prevent wrinkles you need to find products that will turn this process around and increase these two main proteins in the skin.

You can also use products that are good antioxidants. Antioxidants are very useful in protecting the skin from damages. They get rid of free radicals and the harmful damages that they bring.
Active manuka honey, grape seed oil and coenzyme Q10 are three antioxidants that are in the skin care products I use. I am confident that by applying these ingredients to my skin I am protecting myself against the oxidation of free radicals caused by the environment.
