Know Your Heart: A step to a healthy heart

Heart Facts

Your heart is a muscle. It is roughly the size of your fist and weighs 200 to 425 grams. It can keep five litres of blood flowing through your body at all times and in a normal lifetime; a heart will beat billion times.

To get a healthier heart... try to control you daily calorie needs.

Most women need just below 2000 calories a day for good health, men generally about 2550.

Quick Fixes for face flaws

If you suddenly got a pimple... Just rub on a paste of baking soda and water at night to dry it out by morning. I did try it and it works... :)

If you got cracked lips, these are often caused by yeast infections. Massage in a dabof anti fungal cream, being careful not to get any in the mouth. If the condition doesn’t heal within a week, see a doctor.

For dull complexion, wet a washcloth with warm water and squeeze on lime juice. Press onto your face for a few minutes; repeat three times to make skin glow.

If you have a dark circles under eyes, use a concealer with a pink, peachy or yellow undertone to neutralize the blue and green in circles – and avoid plum, purples and red shades of shadow.

Avoid over-indulging on foods

Avoid over-indulging on foods which your body finds hard to detoxify, such as red meat, dairy products, white bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, white bread, fried food, sugar, alcohol,tea, coffee and soft drink. A 12 year study of 90,659 women aged 26 to 46 as found that high red meat comsumption may be associated with the increased risk of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer in premenopausal women. Subjects who are ate more than 1.5 servings of red meat a day had nearly double the risk of those who ate less than three servings a week. (eunyoung cho, kead author of the study and an assistant professor at medicine at Harvard Mediacal School). Try as well to drink 2 litres of filtered water every day and take a multivitamin and mineral pill along with 1000 mg of vitamin C. Follow this regime for 2 weeks.

Essential Beauty Steps

Here are tips to protect you valuable assets from top to toe.


You don’t have to wash your hands all the time just to keep them clean. Opt for a hand sanitizer that wards of bacteria from your hands after wash. The more you wash your hands, the dryer they become. Don’t forget your hand moisturizer.


It is important to remove all your make-up before going to sleep in order to maintain healthy skin. If you don’t, your pores may get clogged. When this happens, your skin will be susceptible to things like pimples and blemishes.


The right body lotion can do wonders for your body skin. If you have dry, flaky skin, use an intensive moisturizing lotion instead of a lightweight moisturizer for normal skin. Try a small amount onto the back of your hand to see how your skin reacts.


If you suffer from dry, cracked heels, try this: before you go to bed each night, apply a generous amount of cracked heel cream onto the problem areas, then put on a pair of socks so that the cream absorbs better and doesn’t stain your sheets.


If your hair is greasy and you need a quick fix, sprinkle some talcum powder onto it to absorb excessive oil. And when you are conditioning your hair, don’t apply directly onto scalp as it will weigh down hair and make it look limp. Just apply to ends of the hair.

Best Cellulite Exercise

There are many options available that work to reduce the appearance of cellulite like creams and massage treatments. However best results are obtained with a combination of exercise and your cellulite treatment. Many beauty centers teach their clients special cellulite exercise to obtain successful results. Below are the best exercises for reducing cellulite. Go on fight cellulite with all you got!

The best cellulite exercises are cardiovascular exercises such as walking, jogging, or swimming. Since cellulite has much to do with poor circulation, these exercises stimulate blood flow and lymphatic circulation. This helps fat trapped under the skin move through the blood stream and out your body. Cardiovascular exercises also promote sweating which helps detoxify the skin and burn fat.

Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite is common in women and affects approximately 90% of us. Cellulite overall is superficial fat; which is fat trapped underneath the top layer of skin. There are specific reasons why superficial fat turns into cellulite and why it affects mostly women. Cellulite is a special kind of fat. It is fat that is located just underneath the skin. In men, this fat is no problem and is smoothly dispersed, however in women this fat builds and begins to form bumps and bulges through the skin. So why does superficial fat organize itself differently in men and women? Here's why: Men organize their fat in connective tissue that runs parallel to their skin. This results in a smooth buildup of fat. Women however, organize their fat parallel to their skin. This causes a pulling down effect which creates bulges of fat or what you know as cellulite. This is why cellulite is seen more in women than in men. So why is Cellulite so hard to get rid of?.The truth is superficial fat (cellulite) is the last to be affected by exercise and diet. This makes weight management and cellulite two separate issues. Another thing to remember is that cellulite is genetic; the level for which you fat turns into cellulite is determined by your genes. If you want to know how much cellulite you will have, take a good look at your mother.

Until today there is no permanent solution to eliminate cellulite but there are ways of treating it. This means reducing the appearance of cellulite and working on preventing cellulite.

Cellulite treatments work to diminish the appearance of fat underneath the top layer of skin. Some cellulite treatments work by smoothing it out using massage techniques such as endermologie. Other more advanced treatments melt fat underneath the skin so it can be circulated out of the body (mesotherapy). In either case, several treatments must be performed for optimum results. Doctors also recommend patients diet and exercise. This does not reduce cellulite but helps prevent excess fat in the body which can later turn into cellulite.
