Delay Aging

Beauty experts have long suggested that a nightly facial massaging and cleansing ritual is the key to youthful skin.  Apparently, that facial massage can reduce sagging by 62 percent after 8 to 12 sessions.

Here's how to do it:  Using the index and middle fingers of both hands, massage your forehead with small circular motions, working your way toward the temples.  Then place fingers at the bridge of the nose and again work out toward the temples.  Next, place your fingers at the corners of the nose and work your way across the cheeks and out toward the ears, then around the jawline and down the throat.  Repeat these steps twice for a total of 2 minutes.  Then rinse your face before rubbing an ice cube over it.  Finally apply moisturizer to the face, throat and decollete.

Paid Search Marketing

Getting your site listed on a search engine does not always guarantee you will be on  top of the search lists. This is one of the dilemmas many businesses are facing right now,  spending a lot of money to have their sites listed only to get little or no response.

One way to sidestep the dilemma of having to submit your site to search engines over and over again is through paid search marketing. These are usually pay per click programs are offered by popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo! Search Marketing and MSN AdCenter.

Pay per click works like this: You choose search terms or keywords, and then bid a certain amount of  money.  Every time a surfer clicks on your url, you pay the advertiser (the website that displayed your ad) with the money you bid. Your ad will only appear on sites that matches your term or keyword.

Stop wasting money on ads that get you nowhere, paid search marketing can make sure that your site gets seen without breaking your bank.

CD and DVD Duplication

Do you have a video or audio presentation that you want to distribute to your members or clients? If you are looking for ways to copy or duplicate your presentation without going through all the troubles yourself, the best way is to look for a dvd duplication service.  Professional copiers ensures  clear, and great quality pictures in your copy.  Of course you can do it on your own if you have a CD burner but it won't be a good idea if you have to make copies in bulk.  It will take up too much of your time and chances are, you'll get your cd burner busted before you are  even done.  At-home cd burners are not capable of bulk copying.  Dvd duplication can save you a lot of time and money.

Boost Your Business With Search Engine Optimization

Does your website need more exposure?  If you need your page to get noticed and your products to sell, the easiest way to do it is through search engine optimisation. Unlike regular web advertising where you have to spend a lot of money, optimizing and submitting your website to search engines using your keywords will put you on top of the list, for a minimal fee. Search engine optimization is a powerful tool that can automate your seo marketing and optimization efforts which can save you a lot of time and allow you to provide your customers high quality service.

Instead of spending hours thinking about how to market your website or comparing various internet marketing softwares to find a great tool that will increase your online visibility and attract highly targeted visitors, search engine optimization will give you results that will quickly boost your business without spending much.

Although it was more popular during the old times, a lot of women still wear corsets at present.  Why, this shape enhancer has agreeable effects on a woman's body -- it makes your waist smaller, it lifts and supports your bosom, it improves your posture.  Some say they are not comfortable with corsets, but a well-fitting (not too tight) one would definitely make you look gorgeous.  Corsets are not easily available in malls nowadays but you can order them online, where they are cheaper.

Gold Rush

A lot of business men say that gold, besides oil and gas investments, is a very risky business, but that was then.  Investments on IRA gold has boomed since the dollar went weak. Apparently, it is risky because gold investment scams are very much alive and well around the world. The price of IRA gold is continuously rising and this heightened interest in investments. Scammers are taking advantage of this so please be very careful.

If you are considering putting in a large amount of money on 401k  gold accounts, it will be wise to seek the advice of experts before you commit your funds to one company.  And one more thing, you can avoid the penalty and taxes if you would have your IRA gold stored at a depository through the gold IRA custodian. 

The Multitasking Oil

Dubbed as the healthiest oil on earth, coconut oil contains many health benefits way past its nutritional content.  Here are some of the benefits you've probably not heard of ...

Ease anxiety - Coconut's aroma is proven to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol by 24 percent.  Simply rub a little on your wrists for all-day calm.

Protect teeth and gums - the lauric acid in coconut oil prevents plaque-forming S. mutans bacteria from sticking to oral surfaces.  Use your finger to apply a thin layer of the oil to teeth twice weekly.

Erase wrinkles - Coconut oil's moisturizing fatty acids plump skin cells, fading fine lines and wrinkles by 42 percent in eight weeks, according to a recent study.  For best results, apply a thin layer to trouble spots near the eyes, mouth and forehead every night.

Give Something Different

I was searching the web, looking for new cross stitch patterns for birth announcements, when I chanced upon this cute wedding page.  Though there are no weddings coming up within the family and my circle of friends, I was tempted to stop by and take a peek.  The site specializes on engraved wedding presents -- glass wares, candles, jewelry boxes, bottle stoppers, photo frames, and many more.  Anything from this site would definitely make a great wedding present and going the extra mile to please someone close to you is just a click of mouse away.

We Need More K

Vitamin K deficiency in women is on the rise.  That's from reports that say the common causes are stress and other factors.  The nutrient is essential for making osteocalcin, which acts as a glue that binds calcium to bones.  To increase levels of this important nutrient, eat more of the dark leafy greens like kale and spinach.  Adding them to your daily diet, you do not only protect your health but you get to enjoy a delicious food at the same time.

Natural Solutions

A lot of skin care products say they are using natural ingredients on their products. Actually, it's true that they do but often, the natural ingredients are used in very small amounts they do not do us any good. If you are to look for natural acne pills, the best thing to do is research about the product first.  No one else can give you the best reviews but those who have used them already.  Look up ingredients that are not familiar to you, the best thing to do is to free yourself from the harsh chemicals because they might only worsen the problem. Don't just buy a product because it's popular, it doesn't always mean it is the best.

Feed Your Skin

When it comes to beauty, our moms were right all along - what's on the inside is just as important as what's on the outside.  Recent research shows that some foods and beverages can literally improve your skin from within.  Here are some of them:

POMEGRANATES - Science proves it  that consuming pomegranate juice, extract and oil, as well as using creams containing pomegranate extract, effectively helps reverse skin aging caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays.

PROBIOTICS - These are beneficial bugs that live in our bodies and help fight off myriad diseases.  Probiotics are great for acne or other inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, when they are in foods like yogurt or taken as supplements.

GOAT'S MILK - It seems the regenerative powers of milk baths are not just old wives' tales.  According to experts, all milk, including the new superstar of beauty products - goat's milk, contains protein and lactic acids that can soothe and soften skin.  They also have a theory that milk's biologically active growth factors can actually make skin cells act younger than they really are.  Goat's milk offers even more benefits than cow's milk.  It is less allegenic and has more minerals and vitamins A and B and is rich in shorter-chain fatty acids, which balance pH and increase absorption of milk fats.

Pamper your skin and body, remember to look for these wonder ingredients in food, beverages, supplements, and beauty products for a glowing, youthful skin.  Just be careful not to eat or drink too much of a good thing.  :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank You FC!!!

Drink Green

I'm sure you already know the many benefits of green tea because of its antioxidant polyphenols.  But new studies show the active ingredient catechin, may crank up metabolism.  They found out that dieters who drank more of the brew lost more weight than those who didn't.  So why go for phentermine if you can lose more the natural way?

How much do you have to drink? According to one study, if you drink five eight-ounce cups of green tea a day, you can increase your energy expenditure by 90 calories a day. That may sound a lot, but that's not hard to do if you also drink it iced. :)

Hair Tips

- every six to eight weeks. A trim combats split ends, damaging and dryness. three unfavorable fates of aging hair.

REMEMBER TO CHANGE - the products you use to adopt to the evolving texture of your hair. That shampoo-conditioner-mousse-hairspray routine you've been doing since your 20s may not be best anymore. Talk to your stylist and find products that work for your hair in its current state.

THOSE PESKY GRAYS lack melanin and therefore need some TLC. Maintain mature locks (natural gray or colored) with protein-laden leave-in treatments.

BRUSH HAIR FROM ROOTS TO ENDS nightly. Doing so will distribute natural oils throughout the shaft and give hair a healthy sheen.

In A Lazy Mode

Food, food, and more food! That is what I have been thinking about lately. I shouldn't but I can't help it. This seldom happens but when it does, it takes a toll on my weight. Sigh. It was never a problem when I was in my 20s. I'd gain and then lose them fast but now it's very difficult. Even if I work out, I wouldn't lose without a little help from safe diet pills. My metabolism is very slow and the flabs seem to stay in my body permanently, haha.

Painful Rhoids

Varicose veins of the rectum, that's hemorrhoids. According to reports almost 50% of men and women in the world, 50 years and older suffer from this. The symptoms? Pain, itchiness and blood in stool. If not treated immediately, symptoms may lead to colorectal cancer. Aside from hemorrhoids treatment, drinking at least 6 to 8 glasses of water can be very helpful because it can help make bowel movements less painful. To avoid the painful rhoids, try to have a regular bowel movement and try to do it at the same time everyday.
