5 Skin Care Tips

5 Skin Care Tips Everyone Should Know

5 Skin Care Tips


1. Protect yourself from the sun

One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles (More than 90 percent of the visible skin changes associated with aging are caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays.), age spots and other skin problems as well as increase the risk of skin cancer.

For the most complete sun protection:

Use sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours or more often if you're swimming or perspiring.

Seek shade. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun's rays are strongest.

Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats. Also consider laundry additives, which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet protection for a certain number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing which is specifically designed to block ultraviolet rays.



2. Don't smoke

Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health.

If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. Ask your doctor for tips or treatments to help you stop smoking.


3. Treat your skin gently

Daily cleansing and shaving can take a toll on your skin. To keep it gentle:

- Limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower time, and use warm rather than hot water.
- Avoid strong soaps. Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers.
- Shave carefully. To protect and lubricate your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. For the closest shave, use a clean, sharp razor. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it.
- Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin.
- Moisturize dry skin. If your skin is dry, use a moisturizer that fits your skin type. For daily use, consider a moisturizer that contains SPF.


4. Eat a healthy diet

A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn't clear but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin.


5. Manage stress

Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin and a healthy state of mind take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.

Lose Pounds and Inches in an Hour

The Easiest DIY Body Wrap You’ll Find(Lose Pounds and Inches in an Hour)


(first, a disclaimer: I am not a doctor, so I have no medical back up on this besides what I’ve found on the lovely internet. Results vary, obviously, there’s no guarantee this will work for you. Do not do this more than 1.5 hours per session and no more than twice a month, and do not if you are pregnant,nursing,under the age of 12, or have other serious medical conditions. Results are temporary if you do not remain hydrated,eat a healthy diet,and exercise.That is all.)

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the “It Works” Body Wraps that are selling out everywhere, and many other off brands, etc. I’m telling you not to pay the overpriced cost of those. You don’t need the at home versions with aloe, cayenne pepper, and 5 other ingredients either! You can do it right at home with two ingredients,and for less than $5! In an hour-hour and a half you could lose up to 3 pounds and 2-3 inches! (it really varies on the person and how much water weight you’re storing,honestly).


What you need :

- Any lotion (I used an old one from dollar tree. It really doesn’t matter which one, though the aim here is to sweat so a heavier one will do a better job (though make you more miserable,as mine did :P)
- Any cling wrap. I just used the $2.50 Glad from Walmart as that’s what we have around the house to wrap food/etc with. I don’t think a certain brand may be better than the other. But be aware that you will use a lot of this, so if you have food you need to wrap.. get an extra package.

THE SKINNY RULES

ABOUT THE SKINNY RULES

THE LAST DIET BOOK YOU’LL EVER NEED

THE SKINNY RULES


With so much conflicting weight-loss advice out there to confuse your efforts, it’s no wonder you haven’t been successful losing weight and keeping it off. But with Bob Harper, superstar trainer and co-host of NBC’s hit show The Biggest Loser as your personal authority and coach, you can and will finally shed the pounds whether you want to lose two or two hundred!

Distilling Bob’s vast knowledge of nutrition, weight-loss strategy, and human nature down to twenty simple, nonnegotiable principles, The Skinny Rules will help you step away from a reliance on processed foods and the need for so much sweet and salt and step into a newly thin lifestyle. And Bob’s methods couldn’t be more straightforward.

Taking the guesswork out of implementing the Skinny Rules, Bob offers a month’s worth of menu plans and more than 90 delicious, rule-abiding recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks to keep you cooking and eating skinny for life. You’ll be happily astounded to see the variety and volume of the tasty food on your plate! He also includes terrific tips for what to stock in your fridge and what to prepare every weekend in order to set yourself up for success during your too-busy-to-cook weekdays.

A virtual GPS to your weight-loss goals, The Skinny Rules takes the mystery out of the process, offering the fastest route to your skinny destination.

LOSING WEIGHT IS NOW AS SIMPLE AS 1-2-3 . . . AND 3-15-18-20 TOO!

Rule #3: Eat protein at every meal, making some kind of fish your go-to protein as often as you can. Take your weight and divide it by two that’s more or less how much protein you should be eating in grams every day.

Rule #15: Eat at least ten meals a week at home (and cook them yourself). Restaurant portions are usually 40 to 50 percent bigger than what you’d serve at home the more you eat out, the more you overeat. Set yourself up for success by preparing my turkey meatballs, hummus, and roasted vegetables on the weekend so that you will have go-to staples and no excuses!

Rule #18: Go to bed slightly hungry. Denied fuel for more than five hours, your body will start burning its own fat and sugar. Make a point not to eat after dinner and you’ll be burning fat while you’re sleeping.

Rule #20: Enjoy a splurge meal once a week. Unlike episodic bingeing, splurge meals are an ingredient in your diet. When you plan something, you are in control.

8 Moves to Banish Back Fat in 3 Weeks

Your back is one of those areas we don’t show off as much as others on our bodies, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect incorporating exercises to strengthen and sculpt your back. Plus a strong back can help maintain good posture and prevent fitness-related injuries.

8 Moves to Banish Back Fat in 3 Weeks


To start, grab two small hand weights. We will be doing a lot of shoulder and back work, so select a weight that is light, yet challenging. As a gauge, I used 4lb weights and it was a challenge!



Banish Back Fat Move #1
Start with your weights down by your sides, palms facing forward. Keep your arms straight and lift your weights outward, stopping at shoulder height. Squeeze your shoulder blades once you reach the top, but be mindful to keep the weights directly out from your shoulders. Lower your arms back down. Do 12 repetitions.


Banish Back Fat Move #2
Start with your arms overhead, palms facing forward. Bend your elbows outwards and press them in towards your sides, lowering weights to waist height. Squeeze your shoulder blades as you bring your elbows in. Do 12 repetitions.


Banish Back Fat Move #3
Lower your weights to your sides and rotate your palms so they face your body. Keep your shoulders stacked directly over your hips (do not hunch forward or lean back) and lean your upper body down to one side, then gently lean to the other. Do 12 repetitions.


Banish Back Fat Move #4
Start with your elbows bent in towards your sides, weights extended outwards, and palms facing forward. Squeeze your elbows into your body (cinching your shoulder blades together), then release back out, keeping your shoulders down the entire time. Do 12 repetitions.


Banish Back Fat Move #5
Lie flat on your stomach, arms and legs extended out. Lift your arms and legs off the ground, as high as you can. Hold for a few seconds then lower yourself back down. Do 12 repetitions.


Banish Back Fat Move #6
Once again, lift your arms and legs off of the ground and then raise your left arm and right leg up even more. Hold here for a second or two then switch, raising your right arm and left leg up, holding briefly. Continue to alternate, count one repetition every time your right arm comes down.   Do 12 repetitions.


Banish Back Fat Move #7
Lower your legs to the ground and place your arms behind your head, elbows out. Lift your head and shoulders off the ground to start, then raise your left elbow, pause briefly then return to center. Do 6 repetitions.  Perform the same movements with your right elbow. Do 6 repetitions.


Banish Back Fat Move #8
Place your hands directly under your shoulders and bring your body into a pushup position, knees on the ground and heels in towards your tush. Keeping your shoulders in line with your hips, slowly lower yourself down for two counts, then press up for two counts, executing a slow and controlled pushup. Do 12 repetitions.


Repeat this series a total of 3 times, in 5 Days, in 3 Weeks.
