honey and milk mask

One mask that works wonders on most skin types especially for those with normal,dry or mature complexions is a simple mixture of just two tablespoons of honey and two tablespoons of milk.

To try this relaxing treatment, steam your pores open by letting your face hover a few inches above the surface of a bowl filled with boiling water.

Add a few teaspoons of an aromatic herb like lavender for an exquisite scent, and drape a towel over your head to stop the steam and the scent from escaping.

Close your eyes and breathe deeply for five to ten minutes. This will open your pores, which makes it possible for your mask to penetrate deeply into your skin and deliver the moisture and nutrients that will increase your skin’s glow.

Apply the honey and milk mixture with your fingertips, smoothing it over your face and throat. Relax for ten to fifteen minutes, letting this sweet mask do its work. Then, rinse away the mixture with warm water, splash your face with cool water to snap your pores shut again, and gently pat your skin dry.

Use this honey mask or another relaxing all natural mask treatment on a weekly basis to help bring your skin to a new level of beauty. By putting a bit of extra effort into caring for your skin, you can turn your healthy complexion into a tremendous beauty asset. Beauty trends come and go, but great skin is always in style, so making sure your skin is at its peak radiance is always worth the trouble. By taking just twenty minutes once a week to help your skin stay replenished and vibrant, you can look forward to compliments on your skin every single day.

Ketosis diet low carb programs activate metabolism

Do you want to go on a Ketosis diet? Several popular diet plans are based on this principle. Atkins and South Beach are both diets which restrict carbs. This results in a ketosis diet. The theory behind a ketosis diet is that your body will burn fat rather than carbohydrates if you deprive it of almost all carbohydrate sources. This means limiting your carb intake to just 20 grams in some cases.

 

Normally, the carbohydrates in food are converted into glucose. The glucose is then transported through the body and is particularly important in fuelling the brain. However, if there are very little carbs in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. Thus, the body produces ketone bodies—a state known as ketosis.

Low Carb diets take advantage of this state of ketosis. Since cells in the body can use ketones for energy instead of glucose, and since ketones are easier to produce, only a small amount of glucose is created. In other words, ketosis is the more significant process in this case. Diets low in starches and sugars do not directly affect blood sugar levels significantly, meals tend to have little direct effect on insulin levels. These diets tend to discourage insulin production in general.

Additionally, many experts argue that a ketosis diet is more like the diet our bodies have evolved to use. Prior to the advent of agriculture just a few thousand years ago, the human body had millions of years of evolution which selected for a hunter gather lifestyle. Hunter gatherers had very few carbs in their diets. They may have had the original ketosis diet.

Dr. Robert Atkins first published the Atkins Diet Revolution in 1972 which set off the modern round of low carb dieting. At the time, its appeal was limited because so many scientists and doctors condemned it. Over time, though, it gained credibility and when he republished the book as Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution, it set off a frenzy.

Soon other ketosis diet books appeared. These included the popular South Beach diet, Zone diet, and Protein Power.

While the scientific community still hasn’t acknowledged the value of the ketosis diet, they have started to make recommendations that people reduce the amount of carbohydrates in their diets. The medical community has stressed the importance of fiber in diets and recommended that children not drink juice on a regular basis.

While the popularity of ketosis diets has waned since it’s height in 2004, there are still many adherents. That’s because, for many people, low carb diets work when nothing else has before.

There has been much scientific research on low carb diets. There are many studies which show it works and many studies which show that it is dangerous. Because of these competing studies, advocates on both sides can pull up evidence that they are right.

Once you do your due diligence, you will be better able to decide whether to pursue a ketosis diet.

Simple Tips For Beautiful Hair

 

There are a few things you can do on a regular basis that will improve the overall health and appearance of your hair, as well as a few things you can avoid. In general, here’s a few standards:

Brush your hair: Yep, the good old fashioned hundred strokes. This stimulates blood supply to the scalp, removes dead skin cells from the scalp before they can get infected, and distributes sebum over the hair shaft for moisturizing and protection. Bend over from the waist and hang limply while doing some of the brushing. Use a natural bristle brush or other gentle brush. Be careful and don’t hurry. Better to go slow and only get 30 strokes in, than go fast and risk breaking or pulling out your hair. Get into the habit of brushing your hair thoroughly before washing it.

Massage your scalp: Before you stop to groom and brush your hair during the day, make a point of doing a quick scalp massage first. Slip your fingers into your hair, and using just the pads of your fingers, massage in small circular motions over your scalp. Using your finger pads will keep you from breaking your hair, scratching your scalp and messing up your style too much. Then restyle, re-spray (if you use it) and go… Continue reading “Simple Tips For Beautiful Hair”
