Taking Control of Your Cellulite

Taking Control of Your Cellulite

by: Burke Jones

Cellulite happens to us for many reasons. Some reasons– like genetics or hormones — you can do very little about. But cellulite is also related to a number of other factors that you CAN work with and improve.
Cellulite affects 90% of women and a much smaller percentage of men. The condition is such a complex one that no real cure is considered to be available. Some products, therapies and procedures do claim to be cures but the jury is still very much out on the subject of getting rid of cellulite.
The unsightly symptoms are found on the soft, fleshy parts of women’s thighs, buttocks, stomachs and upper arms...

Face Masks

Face Masks

by: Alicia Caldelas

Face masks make the difference between good and great skin. They are good for giving your skin a good flush out. Masks can help to clear congested skin or give dry skin a moisture boost.
Clay masks with stimulating ingredients such as rosemary and eucalyptus are best for spotty, oily skin, while rehydrating aloe, honey or milk proteins will nourish dry skin.
Apply face mask for 5 to 20 minutes. Wipe off with a warm face cloth, then tone and moisturise.
Use it once or twice a week – before bed is the perfect time.

How To Live With Menopause

How To Live With Menopause

by: Alicia Simpson

How do you feel when entering menopause? Do you think you can live with menopause? It seems a woman in menopause faces physical changes and new emotional realities. Are you also feeling the same? Do you feel stress and uncertain with what happen to your body?
Although Eastern and Western disciplines disagree in the interpretations of stress response and their prescriptions for how to deal with it, recognition has grown in both disciplines that body and mind are intertwined, working together – or against each other.
The Western interpretation is based on research into the “flight or fight response,” first identified by Dr. Walter Cannon in the 1930’s. In response to threat, the body’s sympathetic nervous system goes into action...

How To Avoid Swelling When Pregnant

How To Avoid Swelling When Pregnant

by: Beverley Brooke

Edema, otherwise known as swelling, will affect almost all women at some point during their pregnancy. Swelling or Edema is most often the result of excessive levels of hormones coursing through your body.
Really, the best thing you can do to combat swelling is to drink far more fluid. It may seem counter intuitive, but the more juice and water you drink the less water your body will hold onto and the less puffy you will be. You should be working to drink at least 10 eight ounce glasses of water per day. Also try to avoid diuretic beverages such as tea and coffee, which contain caffeine. These are more likely to dehydrate you than invigorate you during your pregnancy.
You might also consider wearing some support stockings during your ...

Stylish Women of the Zodiac

Stylish Women of the Zodiac

by: Sam Stevens

Aries
These bold, arrogant and confident creatures are not afraid to flash a little leg or boast a low-cut top. When it comes to fashion, female Rams are self-styled leaders who love flashy, glamorous and sexy clothes. They are also the first to parade around in the latest trends.
They are also perfectionists who are hesitant to debut a new outfit until it has been outfitted with all the right accessories. They love expensive designer clothes but their thrifty side will settle for a decent imitation of Prada or Gucci. Plush velvets and vivid silks in colors such as red, yellow and gold suit the female ram’s conception of herself as “royalty.”
At work, the Ariesian female likes to stand out in a crowed by adding a pair of high-heels or sexy stocki...

Be Thankful for a Faithful Husband

Be Thankful for a Faithful Husband

by: Ruth Houston

If your husband is faithful, you have much to be thankful for. Faithful husbands are in short supply. While 3 out of 4 wives assume their husbands are faithful, only 1 wife in 4 can truthfully make that claim. According to statistics, 3 out of 4 men cheat on their wives. 2/3 of those wives (approximately 26 million women) have no idea their husbands are having an affair – despite the presence of numerous telltale signs.
A Rude Awakening
Every year countless women who thought they had faithful husbands, are shocked when their husbands ask for a divorce or simply move in with another woman. Others are dumbfounded to discover from empty bank accounts that family funds were used to finance an extramarital affair...

How to Improve Your Skin’s Elasticity

How to Improve Your Skin’s Elasticity

by: Brian Fong

If you are a woman in your late 30’s or higher, you have probably noticed your skin’s elasticity is not what it used to be. For most of us this is inevitable. Other body parts begin to sag as we age so why should our skin be any different? Fortunately, there are options available that will help to reverse the effects of age on the skin and also improve elasticity in loose skin that’s caused by weight loss. To better understand what exactly causes our skin to sag in the first place, let’s go over a bit of the physical side of the process.
Your skin has two distinct layers called the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is on the surface and contains the pigment, epidermal cells, and proteins...

Trends in Gift Giving – Jewelry a Timeless Favorit

Trends in Gift Giving – Jewelry a Timeless Favorite

by: M J Plaster

In times of rapid change, constants lend comfort to our lives. Since ancient times, jewelry has been one of the most popular gifts to give and to receive, and it still ranks among the top gifts as a universal, particularly pearls and birthstones. Jewelry ranks just beneath flowers as the gift that says “I love you,” and it ranks just above flowers as a gift to convey that the recipient is someone special. A gift of jewelry delights the recipient and evokes a genuine smile.
It’s the Style…
It’s not the price; it’s the style that determines whether your gift of jewelry is received in the same spirit in which it is given. To give jewelry that delights, match the gift to the recipient’s style...

Guys Love What Women Don’t

Guys Love What Women Don’t

by: Ed Williams

Remember last week’s column when I talked about that annoying little habit women have of wanting to eat food off a man’s plate when they’re out with one of us at a restaurant? Well, I had a certain lady write me an email in response, and she told me that she somewhat agreed with me re what I was saying, but, added that it really didn’t matter too much as, “…getting upset about us eating food off a man’s plate is strictly a guy’s thing. It‘s no big deal to us.”
A guy’s thing. I’ve heard that terminology since back in high school when I first started dating. What it refers to is the fact that there are just some things that men like that women don’t. Those little things that separate the sexes, and make them what they are...

Get Radiant Skin Fast

Get Radiant Skin Fast

by: Julie Gabriel

Winter is a tough experience for any skin type. Even if you have an oily skin, you may suffer from severe skin dehydration due to prolonged exposure to central air heating, contrasting temperatures, and harsh winds. People with acne can hardly balance the act, torn between the need to calm down those nasty pimples with alcohol-based toners and pimple-drying masks and desperate need to slap on that comfy moisturizer. And those with sensitive skin suffer most of all.
No matter what skin type you have in warmer seasons, winter skin care is all about care . This means putting aside those oil-stripping toners, mattifying gels, face washes with scrubbing particles and face powder...

Do You Text Chat (IM) Online?

Do You Text Chat (IM) Online?

by: Dee Scrip

IM (Instant Messaging) – man, we thought we had it made in the shade when we stumbled over this unique way to communicate! Outside of talking person-to-person on the phone, IM was the next best thing. Texting talk was endless and cost was nonexistent. Well, those were the good old days of yore – you know, those days of glorious innocence.
Just as we were getting oh so comfortable, happily IMing away to each other, then came the cloak-and-dagger entrance of the treacherous “IM villains”. With their ominous arrival, the party abruptly ended. It seemed like overnight, our instant messaging (IM) turned into instant mercenaries, and the carnage was strewn all over the Internet.
First, it was one by one, then the numbers increased and start...

How to Increase Romance with Humor

How to Increase Romance with Humor

by: Ana Tamoabba

Ask any single adult what qualities he or she wants in a spouse or partner, and one of the first answers is always “a sense of humor.” Yet relationships and most marriages easily lose the early excitement after living together for several years.
Healthy relationships require laughter. Sex is better; everything is better sprinkled with laughter, be it a chuckle, a belly laugh, or an amused smile.
Humor also motivates better results without resentment. For example, instead of nagging your loved one for leaving dirty clothes on the floor or dishes in the sink, write a silly poem and stick it on the bathroom mirror.
Follow one important groundrule: humor should never belittle another person or be at the other person’s expense...

Watch Out For Women With Purses!

Watch Out For Women With Purses!

by: Laurie Ayers

Many of us have seen the emails that warn women not to park near a van; that your elbow is the strongest part of your body; be aware of your surroundings, etc. These are all valid points. However, when faced with real danger will you remember that email you skimmed last year? Not likely. You need to practice self defense techniques. Why do you think schools have fire drills? Hopefully by walking the children through an actual emergency, they will remember what to do.
Your best defense is to avoid situations of vulnerability. I am always amazed at the number of females walking or jogging alone, both early morning or late at night, when it is dark outside. Or the mother with her baby in her arms, toddler in tow, carrying shopping bags...

How to Overcome a Confidence Crisis

How to Overcome a Confidence Crisis

by: Caterina Rando

As a business success coach I have worked with many women in business who consider themselves successful and who are considered successful by their peers. No matter how much you earn, how fast you find yourself expanding your organization, or how much satisfaction your gain from your business, you can have a confidence crisis. Even women with high self-esteem and self-confidence can suffer from a confidence crash. Sometimes, things happen that knock the confidence right out of us.
At times, our confidence is already shaky as a result of a transition or loss and a single incident like missing a deadline, getting a bad haircut, or spilling coffee on a document can send us storming out of the confidence cafe.
When you crash, it is usually...
