Sty from Eye Makeup: Girls, Beware

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

A lump or swelling of the lids may be due to hordeolum, commonly known as sty. (A sty (hordeolum) is a red, painful lump near the edge of your eyelid that may look like a boil or a pimple.) In most cases, a sty heals on its own within a few days to a week, leading to relief from symptoms. A sty especially develops in women when she shares a cosmetics or cosmetic eye tools with other people and touch, rub or scratch their eyes with dirty hands. Quick remedy for this would be applying warm compress on the infected area as often as possible until the swelling stops. If the swelling subsides but a small hard lump persists, time to go to the doctor because it may already need a minor operation.

Gums and Candies are good for your teeth.
This is definitely sweet tooth can smile about. According to research, sugar alcohol sweetener present in most gums and candies called Xylitol are beneficial to our dental health.The World Health Organization has reted Xylitol as a safe food additive. Xylitol, a natural sugar found in the fiber of most fruits and vegetables, helps avert the development of tooth decay causing bacteria.Saliva is made more alkaline by Xylitol therby preventing bad bacteria from sticking to tooth surface. The bad bacteria is unable to digest xylitol thus preventing plaque and tartar build up.Studies show that 4 to 12 grams of Xylitol per day is effective. This is administered using chewing gum, candy or pastilles after eating and after clearing the mouth by gargling water. source: discover magazine

Getting in Shape

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Smart eating and regular exercise are keys to a healthy heart.

To eat smart, choose vegetable, fruits, fiber, lean cuts of meat anf pork, skinless chicken and fish. Avoid high-fat meats like sausage, burgers, pastries and high-sugar food and drinks.

Exercise for at least 30 minutes everyday, five days a week. Make regular exercise enjoyable by exercising with a buddy, playing upbeat songs while working out or getting glammed up in nice exercise clothes.
During your next visit to the doctor, ask how you can raise your HDL (high-density lipoprotein) levels and keep your bad cholesterol low to protect yourself against life-threatening cardiovascular ailments.

When Nothings Left...

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Working is too far different from studying. That's what I've realized, a year after I got my first job. Growing up, I've always wanted for the best life for me and my family. I've always dreamed for a new house, new environment, lots of money, etc. And in my 5 years of working, I could say that I may not have made them all came true, I am proud that my family is not the same as what we are way back then. Brought by so many consequences, it is so real that life do change as time do pass by.
In a simple life like mine, I have used to buy things that I thought I could be so happy if I have them and experience what others have. Like, having the latest cellphone, laptops, TV, DVD players, MP3's, MP4's, video cams and etc.. Well, all of them could make our lives easy and stylish of course. I may not be looking and buying those branded gadgets, (well I am more on specs) but I am so used to analyze of what they could do for me. Yes, I've enjoyed so much using those things but in the end, I also realized that I could not ignore my family's request. My cellphone, last year, goes to Dubai with my brother (My Precious Goes to UAE), my laptop goes to my parents, as well as my other things, well I am so miserable if I would think that nothings left for me. But somehow, teached me that happiness is not in those things but in what you have inside your heart. Be happy and contented on what you have even how simple it may be.
Wondering what I have now???
My Gadgets
Yes! That's the simplest truth. Back to the simplest cellphone and my old toy, Brick Game. hahaha, most importantly, I could enjoy every minute of my life and could sleep early at night. No more chats, movies at night, no more cellphone games and other things. 


About Me

I am a woman with simple dreams. I'm easy to be with, friendly, most of the time jolly but sometimes moody, loving and sweet. I love sharing my stories of life and somehow I want other people to learn something from me.
