Best Balanced Diet For Normal People

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Balanced diet implies a diet that contains all necessary nutrients within a certain optimal range. This range is usually selected in such a way as to prevent protein malnutrition and vitamin / mineral deficiencies. Thus, in a strict sense, balanced diet is a diet allowing to avoid malnutrition and nutrient deficiencies. And, for many people, especially junk-food lovers, adopting a standard balanced diet would already be a great improvement. Balance Diet for adults is provided below:-

Consume a sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables while staying within energy needs. Two cups of fruit and two-and-a-half cups of vegetables per day are recommended for a reference 2,000-calorie intake, with higher or lower amounts depending on the calorie level.

Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables each day. In particular, select from all five vegetable subgroups (dark green, orange, legumes, starchy vegetables, and other vegetables) several times a week.

Consume 3 or more ounce-equivalents of whole-grain products per day, with the rest of the recommended grains coming from enriched or whole-grain products. In general, at least half the grains should come from whole grains.

Consume 3 cups per day of fat-free or low-fat milk or equivalent milk products.

Size Of The Shoes Are very Necessary For Your Children’s feet

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Good shoes are especially important to avoid problems in developing feet.

Because shoes serve only to protect children’s feet from injury, none are needed before a child walks.

High-topped infant shoes do not support ankles – oxfords and tennis shoes are equally good.

Check OFTEN to be sure shoes aren’t too small. Children’s feet are so flexible they can be crammmed into shoes two sizes too small – and the child may not complain.

Don’t have children wear hand-me-down shoes. They are permanently molded to the original owner’s foot.

Unfortunately, most shoes today are narrower in the front than the foot is. You can check this by standing on paper and tracing around your bare foot. Compare the outline of your foot with the sole of your shoe. If your shoe appears too narrow, you may be inviting foot problems.

Choose only shoes that feel comfortable – you are the best judge of that.

Our marvelous feet evolved for flexibility and strength – not to be stuffed into shoes. When people roamed the earth barefoot 4,000 years ago, foot problems were not the rule. Today, we need shoes to protect our feet from cold, injury, disease, and pounding on hard pavement.

But too often we choose shoes for style rather than comfort and function. Remember: good shoes are part of the good care your feet deserve.

Nutritional Steps to Healthy Nails

Include foods rich in biotin such as soy, brewer’s yeast and whole grains.

Drink plenty of water and other liquids.

You may supplement your diet with royal jelly, spirulina or kelp, which are rich in silica, zinc and B vitamins and help to strengthen your nails.

Drink fresh carrot juice daily, this is high in calcium and phosphorus and is excellent for strengthening nails.

How To Make Your Lips Look Good

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Prep

Smooth lips with lip balm. Avoid slick products, such as Vaseline or anything else petroleum-based which will make the lipstick slide off.

Instead, apply a waxy balm, such as Chapstick, and massage into lips with your figertips. Then let it sink in for a few minutes.

Pick Your Stick

Grab one that lets lips show through, such as a sheer lipstick or light gloss.
Apply LIPSTICK straight from the tube. Blend into lips and along your lip line with fingertip.
Apply LIP GLOSS with the wand or a lip brush. Smooth out with your fingertip.

Blot

When you are finished applying color, lightly kiss the back of your hand. This will get rid of excess product without cutting down on the sheen. Then, gently smack your lips together to even out the color one last time.

Things You Need For your Skincare

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Four applications / products you need in minimum:

Sunscreen:

It’s a must, essential for preventing sun damage and lowering your risk of developing skin cancer. Many skin care lines have facial moisturizers with SPF already included; they offer a more luxurious, makeup-friendly texture than traditional sunscreens. If you use only one product, sunscreen should be it. A lotion like Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Lotion with SPF 15 moisturizes, protects with SPF, and smoothes skin with alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and vitamin C — practically the perfect all-purpose face lotion.

Eye cream:

The skin under your eyes is more delicate and dry than the skin on the rest of your face. It’s wise to invest in an eye cream, which treats the eye area with more emollient moisturizers. Some eye creams even claim to minimize dark circles and temporarily tighten fine lines.

Retinols:

If you’re concerned with wrinkles and pigmentation spots, a face cream with retinol (a derivative of vitamin A) can help. Use it in place of your daytime, SPF moisturizer after you wash your face at night.

Body lotion with alpha-hydroxy acids:

A lotion with skin-sloughing AHAs smoothes your whole body, including hands, feet, arms, and legs. For tough dry spots, apply extra lotion before bed and let it soak in while you sleep.

Mix and Match is in. Rotate your wardrobe and mix garments from different sets.

What’s hot and what’s not may be set in New York, Paris and Rome but back here at home, we can be a little more eclectic. In fact eclectic is what is HOT!

On Colors: If we predict what colors are hot, this will be outdated before you may even read it. Click below to find out what is hot today, then look again tomorrow it may change.

BLACK is back and it never left..probably never will. When in doubt, you can always wear black and know you are in style.

How hair can be damaged

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Although scalp hair is hardy, and can withstand a lot of abuse, it can be damaged by too much or inexpertly applied perming, dyeing, bleaching and massage. The amount of beautying the hair can take varies from person to person. Occasionally the scalp is allergic to the dye and becomes inflamed and swollen. To prevent this occuring, the dye should be tested by applying it to a small area on the arm. If a patch of inflammation has developed, the dye must not be used on the hair.

Most people who bleach their hair do so with hydrogen peroxide. If the peroxide is repeatedly applied, it may make the hair brittle. If this happens the hair may turn rough, develop split ends, or become thinned or shortened.

Tips for Anti-Aging Skin Care

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

As the skin ages, the collagen and elastin fibres, which give it its elasticity and tone, become fused into an inflexible mix called elastone. The skin becomes thinner too, more rapidly in women than in men (who start with thicker skins in the first place), and the subcutaneous layer of fat is reduced. With the approach of menopause, the sebaceous glands begin to shrink and produce less oil, resulting in dry skin that is prone to flaking.

If that weren’t enough, the rate of cell division and replacement falls off by 50% between the ages of 35 and 80, increasing the tendency for the old cells on the surface of the skin to cling there for a bit longer. All this leads to sagging, wrinkling, loss of skin tone and uneven pigmentation. The degree of wrinkling depends on your genetic makeup, but smoking, dry skin and sun exposure (especially sunburns) make it worse. Dynamic motion – making facial expressions – also causes permanent creases over time.

Action:
You should compensate for the slowdown in cell renewal by using an exfoliant on a weekly basis. And give your skin a moisture boost every time you cleanse it – especially around your eye area. There are many products that help increase cell renewal and elasticity. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), derived from fruit, milk and sugar cane, have anti-inflammatory properties; when applied to the skin, they help remove dead skin cells, giving you a younger appearance. Choose products with AHAs more often as your skin ages.

Different Causes of Acne Scars

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

In the simplest terms, scars form at the site of an injury to tissue. They are the visible reminders of injury and tissue repair. In the case of acne, the injury is caused by the body’s inflammatory response to sebum, bacteria and dead cells in the plugged sebaceous follicle. Two types of true scars exist, as discussed later: (1) depressed areas such as ice-pick scars, and (2) raised thickened tissue such as keloids.

When tissue suffers an injury, the body rushes its repair kit to the injury site. Among the elements of the repair kit are white blood cells and an array of inflammatory molecules that have the task of repairing tissue and fighting infection. However, when their job is done they may leave a somewhat messy repair site in the form of fibrous scar tissue, or eroded tissue.

White blood cells and inflammatory molecules may remain at the site of an active acne lesion for days or even weeks. In people who are susceptible to scarring, the result may be an acne scar. The occurrence and incidence of scarring is still not well understood, however. There is considerable variation in scarring between one person and another, indicating that some people are more prone to scarring than others. Scarring frequently results from severe inflammatory nodulocystic acne that occurs deep in the skin. But, scarring also may arise from more superficial inflamed lesions.

The life history of scars also is not well understood. Some people bear their acne scars for a lifetime with little change in the scars, but in other people the skin undergoes some degree of remodeling and acne scars diminish in size.

People also have differing feelings about acne scars. Scars of more or less the same size that may be psychologically distressing to one person may be accepted by another person as “not too bad.” The person who is distressed by scars is more likely to seek treatment to moderate or remove the scars.

Beauty Tips for Your Sensitive Skin Care

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

There are two types of skin that fall into the sensitive skin category. One is susceptible to break outs, and the other is easily irritated. The irritations come from overusing products or using products that are too harsh – especially cleansers. If you’ve found that your skin is reacting to some skin products and showing signs of irritation or redness, you probably have sensitive skin. We all have skin that is somewhat sensitive, however hypersensitive skin, which usually goes with blonde or red-haired people, reacts to irritants by turning blotchy or developing spots and rashes. This type of skin rarely tans but only burns or freckles.

Take Heed:
Cleanse with gentle, water-soluble lotions and tepid water. Avoid hot water and washcloths. Moisturizer is essential to protect sensitive skin – and it should be hypoallergenic and fragrance free. Avoid products that contain a lot of stabilizers – chemicals that add to the shelf life of a product wreak havoc with hypersensitive skin.

Special Tips For Your Excessive Oily Skin

Friday, November 30th, 2012

U know what lyca khalid that oily skin is due to overproductive sebaceous glands. But there is one good thing for those who have oily skin i.e. they generally show slower fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. The downside can be more frequent breakouts, large pores and a greasy appearance. The following steps can minimize the negative effects.

Steps:

1. Stick with the basics: The experts suggest cleansing your face two or three times daily with good old soap and water. Pack a premoistened cleansing pad if you won’t be around a water basin throughout the day.

2. Understand that dermatologists and aestheticians often disagree on which types of soaps or cleansers to use’but all agree that once you find a product that works well for your skin, you should continue using it.

3. Follow the recommendations of dermatologists and shower or bathe in tepid rather than steaming-hot water. Hot water can strip your skin of needed moisture, while cold water can shock your skin.

4. Avoid using cleansers that tend to overdry skin. This paradoxically causes your skin to produce even more oil than usual.

5. Use only noncomedogenic moisturizers and sunscreen products’this means they’re oil-free and won’t clog pores.

6. Talk to your dermatologist about a class of drugs called retinoids, which reduce production in oil glands and shrink their size.

7. Keep in mind that oil glands are very sensitive’stimuli such as hormones, heat and (some say) fatty food can trigger them.

8. Remember that your efforts to keep your oily skin clear can only go so far, as some studies indicate that oily skin is hereditary.
