10 FACIAL MAKEOVER SECRETS FROM BEAUTY EXPERT FOR A FLAWLESS SKIN

10 FACIAL MAKEOVER SECRETS FROM BEAUTY EXPERT FOR A FLAWLESS SKIN
You can prevent and reverse the signs of aging in a natural way and there are many examples of such “tour de force”. The 10 tips for a flawless skin have been compiled from the knowledge of a vast number of beauty experts, dermatologists and beauticians from all over the world. To be sure that your facial makeover will be a real success and your skin will be smooth, soft and radiant, you need to be active both within and without. Tips 1-4 are the without part of your holistic skin care ritual. Tips 5-10 constitute the within part. Altogether, these 10 secrets are the pillars of real and lasting Beauty.

Acting from Without

Gently cleanse
Cleansing your skin is a must. It is the foundation of any skincare since dirt, pollutants and oil clog pores (which means choking your skin) and lead to breakouts and inflammation. Stay away from harsh soaps and chemical solutions which will harm your skin, throw its pH off balance and induce inflammation, leading to premature degeneration and aging. Please remember that keeping makeup on at night is one the worst thing you can do to your skin: so de-makeup before going to bed!
Gently exfoliate and de-pollute
Your skin is a living organ, not just a wrap around your body, therefore, it breathes! Would you breathe well with a towel or a bag over your face? Probably not. Same principle applies to your skin! The more you clean off dead cells, dirt, oil and pollutants, the better it breathes, the healthier it is, the more beautiful it is. This is why exfoliation is the next most important step of your facial makeover: it deeply purifies and un-pollute your skin while gently stimulating its natural renewal, suppleness, tone and vitality.

Fortify with purifying masks
Purifying masks draw out toxins, pollutants and impurities from deep inside and they help to rebalance and soothe your skin. If scientists have found DDT and other crazy pollutants in polar bears’ fat, who live pretty far from civilization, don’t you think your skin is exposed to those and other types of pollutants? You bet it is! That’s why detoxifying regularly and providing your skin with all the minerals and vitamins it needs is the best way to protect your skin and fortify it. Plus even if it only takes 5 min once or twice a week, doing a mask is taking some time off for yourself, away from the stress and worries of your life. You need this time off!
Nurture with anti-aging and protecting moisturizers
Your skin is craving for moisture, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants: nourish it well and carefully with rich and pure elements, not with chemicals, to strengthen, rejuvenate, protect and vitalize it. Keep in mind that depending upon the season and climate, your skin’s needs may vary a lot. Moisturize morning and evening after having gently cleansed your skin. Love your skin and it will love you back.

Nature Purity offers complete holistic solutions for these 4 facial makeover secrets. Have a look at these products: they contain rich natural and perfectly balanced ingredients for a radiant and toned skin.
Acting from Within
Next six secrets of your facial makeover are equally important if you want to reveal your most vibrant inner beauty. Your skin is one of your biggest organs, so gently care for it and it will reward you in the most pleasant way! Nurturing your skin from within is equally important to protecting it from without, so don’t overlook these simple and easy steps, they are crucial and fundamental to your beauty and health.

Eat well and fresh, drink plenty (of water and green tea).
Everyday, your body is losing some cells and rebuilding new ones. You build your body with what you eat and drink. Thus, if you eat junk food, you build your body with junk. Not a good idea … By choosing fresh natural and organic foods, you give your body the best elements to build itself. By drinking pure water, you ensure that the fluids in your body are pure and vibrant. Make sure that you get enough The Thrive Diet vitamins, nutrients and minerals since they are absolutely necessary for all biological processes. Have a look at our review article for B. Brazier Ironman athlete’s Thrive Diet.
As far as drinking, Green Tea has lots of extraordinary virtues; among them being a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory drink as well as protecting against stroke, cancer and gum diseases. It’s also your best friend if you want to lose weight (for details see our our blog post). By any means, avoid hidden sugars and sweeteners like aspartame and don’t overindulge with alcohol.

Exercise/work out
When you exercise, you increase your cellular metabolism and respiration and also boost your blood and lymph circulation, which are fundamental to enhance oxygen and nutrients availability and waste disposal from your tissues and organs. This in turn does more for your skin than a day in a spa! Choose whatever you feel drawn to, trust your instinct and keep to your weekly routine.
Sleep
It’s well known that it’s during sleep that your mind and body regenerate the most. By cutting down on sleep, you deprive yourself of the best chance to stay young and healthy. Dr Michael Vitiello, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at University of Washington says: “It is important for Americans to recognize that good sleep is not negotiable, rather it is a pillar of good health and function, as times get tougher, it actually becomes more important than ever to do what one can to maintain good sleep quality, as poor sleep has such an immediate impact on daily function and longer-term impact on physical health.” Since Health and Beauty are so tightly linked, good sleep also has a very crucial and deeply beneficial action on the beauty your skin.
Detoxify.
I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to do regular detox. Simply because your body accumulates in your tissues (including your skin!) a lot of waste due to lifestyle and exposure to thousands of chemicals everyday; some of them end up inside your body and accumulate over time. This toxic accumulation is a burden on each of your cells and may lead to skin premature aging and weight gain. By taking natural Green Clay cure, you give your cells a chance to get rid of their toxic waste. To learn more, read our article about Spring Detox.
Relax and meditate
Your brain and body need periodic resets. By being hyperactive and under stress all day long, you don’t give your body and brain a chance to do this reseting. Stress is actually the most destructive and aging contributing factor. Whether it’s your family life which is stressful, your love life, your career or all 3 altogether, you need to unwind from time to time. At first, it might not sound easy or even doable; but “where there is a will, there is a way” and it actually is and the benefits you will reap from doing this will pay off largely for the effort you put in it. Meditation is the brain’s way of breathing deeply and relaxing. A growing number of very well-known neuroscientists are now studying the beneficial effects of meditation on the brain and body and trying to find ways to help people more with meditation. Even 5 min. meditation a few times a week will give visible results so don’t deprive yourself from a chance to regenerate within and without. It costs no money and it’s powerful.
Smile!
There are scientific studies showing that when you smile without being actually happy, it induces the release of happiness hormones (endorphins), making you feel happy! So even when you’re deep into stress and hassle, if you make an effort to smile at the end of the day, it will in turn make you feel much better and prepare you for a good night sleep! Try it…

Since Beauty will save the world, as F. Dostoievsky wrote, so you can help saving it!

Enjoy holistic beauty and be happy!

Take good care of yourself,

Bras and Breast Cancer risk

Bras and breast cancer risk

Bra-wearing has been linked to breast cancer in a study done by Sidney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer. They found, for example, that women who wore a bra 24 hours a day had a 113-fold increase in breast cancer incidence compared to women who wore bra less than 12 hours daily! They suggest that bras exert enough pressure to the breast and surrounding areas to inhibit the flow of lymph, which then causes toxins and other waste material to remain in the breasts instead of being flushed out.

Now, this effect may be due to the fact that most women just wear the wrong size bra that is too tight somewhere. No one has done any studies investigating the link between breast cancer and how well the woman’s bra fits. Either way, for your breast health’s sake it is better to avoid wearing bras whenever possible, and for those occasions when you do need one, get well-fitting bras.

So why do women wear a bra?

* “Because breasts need to be supported.”
This is largely a myth: “…wearing a bra… has no medical necessity whatsoever”, says Susan M. Love, M.D in her “Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book”. This is similar to the myth that women supposedly need corsets to support their stomach muscles.

Now, large-breasted women may need the support from bras. Jogging and other active sports may be painful even for medium-breasted ladies. This is, however, an individual thing, so do what is comfortable for you.

In one study, large-breasted women removed the weight of breasts from their shoulders for two weeks, either by going braless or by wearing a strapless bra. Only one woman chose a strapless bra and all the others went braless. The researchers monitored the women for muscle pain and tenderness. Seventy-nine percent of patients decided to remove breast weight from the shoulder permanently because it rendered them symptom free!
(Ryan, EL, Pectoral girdle myalgia in women: a 5-year study in a clinical setting. Clin J Pain. 2000 Dec;16(4):298-303.

If you need or want to wear a bra, find one that is fitting. Be especially careful about the underwires and side panels, because if the fit is not just right, the underwire can poke into the breast tissue, and the side panels can create extra pressure and tightness. Consider getting fitted right with a professional fitter. Also, give your breasts “free time”. Take your bra off whenever you can, such as at home. At the very least do not wear it to sleep.

Also, while bras do give breasts support, they do not ultimately prevent your breasts from sagging. Gravity will eventually take its effect. There is actually some evidence that bras can even increase sagging. One possible reason for that is that the breast has ligaments, and since other bodily ligaments can atrophy when not in use, the same might happen to the breast ligaments under the constant artificial support from the bra, resulting in increased sagginess. Another possible reason for bra-wearing increasing sagginess is IF a woman wears an ill-fitting bra, which may force some of the breast tissue to “migrate”, resulting in differently shaped breasts than otherwise.

* “Because I feel immoral or indecent without bras.”
This is actually a strange contrast to the sexual nature of bras. While many women accentuate the sexuality of their breasts with bras, equally many or more feel that bras are sort of a necessary “modest covering” for breasts.

Is morality really dependent upon the type of underwear you wear? Women who feel this way have often been made to believe that their breasts are “dirty” body parts that need “tucked away” from sight; and bras become the means of doing so.

Considering breasts as baby feeders, and realizing that breasts do NOT have to be considered a special sexual body part (such as genitals) can liberate these women from a mental “bondage” that says breasts are “immoral, obscene, or indecent” in themselves.

“Just a note to those who’ve commented before that bras give the female body a cleaner look. After I came across this site, that too was my first thought (and I am someone who has refused to wear bras for most of my life). However, as soon as I had that thought, I caught myself. Of course I (and some of you) think that – that’s what our society has taught us. It has taught us that there is something a bit disgusting or wrong about breasts that aren’t bound. When this kind of thinking has been pumped into you since day 1, it’s obviously very difficult to overcome. I hope that someday we as a society will realize just how silly it is to believe that breasts must be bound to be beautiful or normal. It is just as silly as the old Chinese tradition of binding Chinese women’s feet in order to make them beautiful.”
Renee

* “Because everybody does so, or in other words the unspoken rules of society so dictate.”
This is a common reason for wearing bras, and in many situations we women do have to comform to the modern society’s dress code.

* “I need to wear bras for my job since it’s the dress code.”
This might be; however those ladies who would rather not wear one for whatever reason, still have some options even at workplace:
1. Try a camisole/vest . A good camisole made out of elastic material will give some support to your breasts so they don’t bounce around, and you will probably be surprised how little people notice. Companies that require bras may not have a policy that defines what a bra is. Some cropped camisoles look very much like bras. Some camisoles even have adjustable straps like a bra. Basically, if it looks professional, it should be OK.
2. Try some other alternative for bra, such as bra cups worn inside the clothing.
3. Try change the company’s policy. I am not guaranteeing this will work; however in some situations it might be a viable option.

* “To hide nipples that poke through clothing.”
This is a true reason for wearing bras for many women. However, if you dislike bras, you don’t need to wear them just for this purpose, as silicone nipple covers can cover your nipples. The society views nipples that are just a tad visible through clothing as something “indecent” or inappropriate, but it is kind of silly to think that. No one thinks that of MEN’s nipples, do they?

And just because one’s nipples stick out a little and are visible through clothing does NOT mean the person is sexually aroused. We all should know that! Most people’s nipples are protruding outwards in their natural state.

* “Because I hate the thought of my breasts sagging so much.”
Bras provide support for the breasts and keep breasts from sagging while you wear them. This is often considered to be the “norm” or the dress code for professionals or otherwise. Some of us may also find discomfort in the sweat that collects under sagging breasts.

But dress code aside, I hope women will realize how normal sagging is. We get so brainwashed by the media images of young perky breasts that we no longer know what is normal. In reality it is perfectly NORMAL for adult breasts to be hanging in a lower, relaxed position. Check our gallery for pictures of normal breasts.

Also, it is good to realize that bras do not ultimately prevent your breasts from sagging. Gravity will eventually take its effect, sooner or later. Two scientific studies have even shown that wearing a bra causes the breasts to sag more.

“A mistaken popular belief maintains that wearing a bra strengthens your breasts and prevents their eventual sagging. But you sag because of the proportion of fat and tissue in your breasts, and no bra changes that.”
Susan M. Love, M.D. in her “Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book.”

* Discomform from sweat and ‘slapping’:
“I, myself, experience discomfort from NOT wearing a bra, due to the way in which sweat collects under my breasts (I live in Dixie), and how my breasts slap painfully against the skin underneath when I move quickly. In fact, due to the fact that I am not a very restfull sleeper, I usually wear a comfortable sports bra to bed.”
Abi Bell

If you suffer with a sweat rash under the breasts, one idea is to apply a good medicated body powder (not talc) after you have washed every day. One visitor suggested Lanacane as a good one. Then there is also a product called Swoobies that is designed to absorb the moisture (sweat) between the bra and breasts.

* “Because I want to give the illusion of a larger breast size.”
This especially happens among teenagers who are very self-conscious if their breasts end up on the smaller end of the scale. Small-breasted and flat-chested women often pad their bras or perhaps use other means to fill up the bra cup, such as silicone breast enhancers.

If the society wouldn’t have such a craze about large breasts being better, these girls and women wouldn’t need to feel so self-conscious about this issue!

* “Because they jump up and down while I exercise and do sports.” Sports bras can be extremely helpful in reducing breast bouncing while running or doing other types of active sports. In fact, the bouncing during jogging, for example, can actually damage the ligaments inside the breasts. Slight movement of breasts is probably just helpful, because movement of breasts aids the lymph flow. You need to judge the situation based on the type of activity.

* “Because I am breastfeeding and I need to wear nursing bras.”
Nursing moms (or pregnant women) are indeed told to buy nursing bras and wear them. There is no medical necessity to wear nursing bras either. Of course nursing bras is a handy way to hide the leaking of breast milk, and maybe you want to wear one in order to avoid society’s pressure.

Joys of Muslim Women

Muslim Women and ISLAM

This was written by a woman born in Egypt as a Muslim.
This is not hearsay, and it will scare the life out of you.
Make sure you read the paragraph towards the end.

Joys of Muslim Women
By Nonie Darwish

In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. Consummating the marriage by 9. The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.

Even though a woman is abused she can not obtain a divorce.
To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.
Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives ‘at will’ and he does not have to say why he has beaten her.

The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.

The Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.

In the West World ( America and Britain ) Muslim men are starting to demand Shariah Law so the wife can not obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities and British Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the Shariah law.

By passing this on, enlightened American and British women may avoid becoming a slave under Shariah Law. Ripping the West in Two. Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Shariah law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two.

She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law.

Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel . He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza .

When he died, he was considered a “shahid,” a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society.

But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing.. She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television.

In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping sharia law – what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries.

For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world.

Peace and prosperity for one’s children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.

While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics – one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.

While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism.

It’s hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East are silenced through intimidation.

While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.

(In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Britain To elect the President by themselves! Rest assured they will do so… You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the USA … Dearborn Mich. Is one… And there are others…) (Britain has several cities now totally controlled by Muslims) Make sure you read the paragraph towards the end.

I think everyone in the U.S. and Great Britain Should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

It is too bad that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to accept Muslims as peaceful.. Some may be but they have an army that is willing to shed blood in the name of Islam.. The peaceful support the warriors with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion. While America and Britain is getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing God from the lives of children the Muslims are planning a great jihad on America .. (and Britain) ..

This is your chance to make a difference…!

BSE – Breast awareness and self exam

Clinical breast exam
A clinical breast exam (CBE) is an exam of your breasts by a health care professional, such as a doctor, nurse practitioner, nurse, or doctor’s assistant. For this exam, you undress from the waist up. The health care professional will first look at your breasts for abnormalities in size or shape, or changes in the skin of the breasts or nipple. Then, using the pads of the fingers, the examiner will gently feel (palpate) your breasts.

Special attention will be given to the shape and texture of the breasts, location of any lumps, and whether such lumps are attached to the skin or to deeper tissues. The area under both arms will also be examined.

The CBE is a good time for women who don’t know how to examine their breasts to learn the proper technique from their health care professionals. Ask your doctor or nurse to teach you and watch your technique.

Breast awareness and self exam
Beginning in their 20s, women should be told about the benefits and limitations of breast self-exam (BSE). Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any new breast changes to a health professional as soon as they are found. Finding a breast change does not necessarily mean there is a cancer.

A woman can notice changes by being aware of how her breasts normally look and feel and by feeling her breasts for changes (breast awareness), or by choosing to use a step-by-step approach (see below) and using a specific schedule to examine her breasts.

If you choose to do BSE, the information below is a step-by-step approach for the exam. The best time for a woman to examine her breasts is when the breasts are not tender or swollen. Women who examine their breasts should have their technique reviewed during their periodic health exams by their health care professional.

Women with breast implants can do BSE, too. It may be helpful to have the surgeon help identify the edges of the implant so that you know what you are feeling. There is some thought that the implants push out the breast tissue and may actually make it easier to examine. Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding can also choose to examine their breasts regularly.

It is acceptable for women to choose not to do BSE or to do BSE once in a while. Women who choose not to do BSE should still be aware of the normal look and feel of their breasts and report any changes to their doctor right away.

How to examine your breastsLie down and place your right arm behind your head. The exam is done while lying down, not standing up. This is because when lying down the breast tissue spreads evenly over the chest wall and is as thin as possible, making it much easier to feel all the breast tissue.
Use the finger pads of the 3 middle fingers on your left hand to feel for lumps in the right breast. Use overlapping dime-sized circular motions of the finger pads to feel the breast tissue.

Use 3 different levels of pressure to feel all the breast tissue. Light pressure is needed to feel the tissue closest to the skin; medium pressure to feel a little deeper; and firm pressure to feel the tissue closest to the chest and ribs. It is normal to feel a firm ridge in the lower curve of each breast, but you should tell your doctor if you feel anything else out of the ordinary. If you’re not sure how hard to press, talk with your doctor or nurse. Use each pressure level to feel the breast tissue before moving on to the next spot.

Move around the breast in an up and down pattern starting at an imaginary line drawn straight down your side from the underarm and moving across the breast to the middle of the chest bone (sternum or breastbone). Be sure to check the entire breast area going down until you feel only ribs and up to the neck or collar bone (clavicle).

There is some evidence to suggest that the up-and-down pattern (sometimes called the vertical pattern) is the most effective pattern for covering the entire breast, without missing any breast tissue.
Repeat the exam on your left breast, putting your left arm behind your head and using the finger pads of your right hand to do the exam.
While standing in front of a mirror with your hands pressing firmly down on your hips, look at your breasts for any changes of size, shape, contour, or dimpling, or redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin. (The pressing down on the hips position contracts the chest wall muscles and enhances any breast changes.)
Examine each underarm while sitting up or standing and with your arm only slightly raised so you can easily feel in this area. Raising your arm straight up tightens the tissue in this area and makes it harder to examine.
This procedure for doing breast self exam is different from previous recommendations. These changes represent an extensive review of the medical literature and input from an expert advisory group. There is evidence that this position (lying down), the area felt, pattern of coverage of the breast, and use of different amounts of pressure increase a woman’s ability to find abnormal areas.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
For certain women at high risk for breast cancer, screening MRI is recommended along with a yearly mammogram. It is not generally recommended as a screening tool by itself, because although it is a sensitive test, it may still miss some cancers that mammograms would detect.

MRI scans use magnets and radio waves (instead of x-rays) to produce very detailed, cross-sectional images of the body. The most useful MRI exams for breast imaging use a contrast material (gadolinium) that is injected into a vein in the arm before or during the exam. This improves the ability of the MRI to clearly show breast tissue details. (For more details on how an MRI test is done, see the section, ” How is breast cancer diagnosed?”)

MRI is more sensitive in detecting cancers than mammograms, but it also has a higher false-positive rate (where the test finds something that turns out not to be cancer), which results in more recalls and biopsies. This is why it is not recommended as a screening test for women at average risk of breast cancer, as it would result in unneeded biopsies and other tests in a large portion of these women.

Just as mammography uses x-ray machines that are specially designed to image the breasts, breast MRI also requires special equipment. Breast MRI machines produce higher quality images than MRI machines designed for head, chest, or abdominal scanning. However, many hospitals and imaging centers do not have dedicated breast MRI equipment available. It is important that screening MRIs be done at facilities that can perform an MRI-guided breast biopsy. Otherwise, the entire scan will need to be repeated at another facility when the biopsy is done.

MRI is more expensive than mammography. Most major insurance companies will likely pay for these screening tests if a woman can be shown to be at high risk, but it’s not yet clear if all companies will do so. At this time there are concerns about costs of and limited access to high-quality MRI breast screening services for women at high risk of breast cancer.
