(NC)—With today’s “on-the-go” lifestyle, people have redefined what “active” means. The distinction between your workout routine and your everyday life activities may have blurred. Many people take care of their body when they exercise but forget to take care of their body during a hectic workday. An example of this is keeping hydrated. You probably know that you should drink plenty of fluids during exercise, but this also holds true for people who lead an active lifestyle.
Sports drinks such as POWERaDE TXL sports beverages provide hydration combined with a light, refreshing taste.
Follow these tips to ensure you are getting enough fluids while exercising:
Get into a routine. Drink regularly – even if you don’t feel thirsty. If you are thirsty, that means you are already dehydrated.
Maintain hydration. It is important to drink before, during and after exercise.
Be prepared. Always carry a squeeze bottle filled with a sports drink or water when exercising.
Drink a little bit, often. Drinking small amounts of liquid frequently is more effective than drinking a large amount once or twice a day.
Monitor yourself.
Watch for the symptoms of dehydration.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be dehydrated:
Mild dehydration
Dry lips and mouth
Flushed skin
Fatigue
Irritability
Headache
Dark urine
Moderate dehydration
Pinched skin takes longer to bounce back into shape
Sunken eyes
Cramps
Stiff joints
Irritability
Fatigue
Severe dehydration
Blue lips
Blotchy skin
Confusion
Cold hands and feet
Increase in breathing rate
Quick and weak pulse
Faintness
Inability to urinate
The body is able to reserve nutrients but it cannot reserve water. Once the body runs out of its water supply, it cannot rehydrate. Make sure that you drink enough fluids to keep you hydrated and healthy all summer long.

Beauty Advice You Can Start Using Today! (2)

Beauty Advice You Can Start Using Today!

Beauty is not only skin deep. Many people posses an inner beauty that far surpasses that of any outer beauty. Kindness, generosity, and humility are all examples of inner beauty. When you have them both, you will become simple irresistible, though. Check out these great beauty tips to help you work on your outer shell.

If you have naturally pale skin, having a healthy glow can be a problem. A lot of makeup is not required to have a great looking skin glow. For the most natural-looking results, use a glow product around the hair line, the chin, the apple areas of your cheeks and the bridge of the nose.

Before you apply base coat or colored polish to your fingernails or toenails, clean the nail beds thoroughly with a cotton ball soaked in polish remover – even if your nails are not already polished. This will quickly remove any traces of dirt, oils, or hand creams from the area, which allows the base coat or polish to adhere to the nail more effectively.

Lip liner is frequently used by women to give shape and definition to their lips. Please, please don’t make the mistake of using lip liner to “draw” your lips on, completely independent of your actual lip shape. You are far better off using lip liner to define your lip’s natural shape, filling in with lipstick. An artificial lip line is clownish, unsubtle, and unflattering. If your lips are thin, stick with a fresh color that’s not too bright – a berry tone, for example.

Keep wool pads that have been soaked in water, in your fridge. You can also keep teabags or cucumbers in your fridge. This is great if you have puffy eyes and can relieve them. Using this on your eyes will make you look refreshed and will last all day.

If you are a lifelong fan of heavy, dangling earrings, you may notice that your earlobes appear somewhat stretched out. Instead of spending thousands on earlobe restoration surgery, try applying a small piece of skin-colored adhesive bandage to the back of the earlobe. It will make the size of your piercing appear less noticeable while keeping your lobes looking more firm.

If you are worried that your favorite fragrance may fade away during the day, think of adding some to your hair. You don’t want to spray it directly on your hair, but, instead, spray a light mist to the bristles of a brush and run it through your hair. You and your hair will smell great for the rest of the day.

To make your eyelash curler work even better, give it a blast of hot air from your blow dryer, but let it cool slightly before using it on your lashes. The heat will help to set the curl so your lashes stay defined longer than they would with a cold curler.

As stated at the beginning of this article, beauty is not only skin deep. The beauty that some people posses inside of them, can far surpass that of any beauty that is on the outside. However, this article can give you a few great beauty tips that can make your outward appearance shine through.

Beauty Secrets That You Need To Know

Prom - 2017

The way you feel about yourself has a huge impact on the way others see and perceive you. When you feel beautiful, you are more confident, positive, and enthusiastic. These attributes can give you the positive self-assurance you need to get ahead in your career or go for a goal you’ve been dreaming of. This article will present sure-fire tips for looking beautiful and feeling your best.

For an inexpensive, spa-like facial just lean yourself over a bowl of steaming hot water! Cover or wrap up your hair, fill any container with really hot water and allow the steam to open and clear your pores! It is soothing and stimulating and very cost effective. Follow up with cold water to close and refresh pores, then add moisturizer!

If you have ever gone too far when plucking your eyebrows to where you can’t see you had any, there is a solution. You will first want to select an eyebrow pencil that blends with your brow color. Remember to fill the entire brow with the pencil and not just the bald spots using the fill, fix, feather technique.

You can make your lipstick last a bit longer by taking an additional step when you are applying it. Simply blot your lipstick between applying the different layers and you will find that the life of your lipstick will be prolonged. You will find that you will not have to reapply quite as often.

Put on lip balm every day. Lip balm is an essential ingredient in keeping your lips beautiful. You should apply it to your lips at night when you go to bed, and in the morning before you put any lipstick or gloss on your lips. Your lips will stay looking younger and fuller.

Rather than spending twenty dollars on every single new mascara that comes on the market, focus on prepping your lashes as the best way to maximize the effect of your makeup. Use a heated eyelash curler before applying your favorite mascara. After applying two or three coats, use a lash comb to eliminate clumps and separate the lashes.

Coconut oil is a great beauty product. The natural oil of a coconut combats aging with its antioxidant properties, put it on your skin and it will not leave any residue. You can also mix it with sugar and use it as a gentle exfoliant by rubbing it into your skin.

Pick a foundation that is dermatologist approved and matches your natural skin tone well. Some foundations can clog your pores quite easily if you have sensitive skin, so find one that is oil-free as well. This will help keep your pores clear and help make your face look great and oil-free all day.

As you can see, there are many things you can easily do to look beautiful and feel your best. By incorporating the ideas mentioned in these tips into your everyday beauty routine, you will be looking great and feeling ready to take on any challenges that come your way.

Types of Cosmetics

Types of Cosmetics


Make-up and cosmetics are used all over the world by all kinds of different people.
Cosmetic products are defined as, “a substance or preparation intended for placement in contact with any external part of the human body”. This definition can include a variety of products.

Shampoos and soaps are products that usually contain some kind of fragrance and clean the skin by the use of surface-active agents, or surfactants. These surfactants are molecules that have both lipophilic and hydrophilic, or fat soluble and water soluble parts. The fat soluble part of the product clings to the oil and dirt as the water soluble part allows the lipophilic part to be washed away. Detergents for dishes and clothes work in pretty much the same way but will have different ingredients that make them more harsh for use on hard, solid surfaces. It is usually not a good idea to try and use these detergents on the body and hair, for it can lead to irritation.

Lipstick is another cosmetic product that contains hydrophilic properties. They are manufactured by combining wax, a non-volatile oil such as beeswax with castor oil, and water. The combination produces a thick substance that is water-insoluble and spreads easily on the lips. Because of its lipophilic properties, lipstick won’t dissolve on the lips when exposed to saliva or liquid from drinks. Other lipsticks will have a dye in them that react to amino acids on the top layer of the skin. This makes the the product appear blue or green in the container and change to red when applied to the lips.

When water is lost on the top layer of dead skin cells faster than the living cells under them can absorb the moisture our skin becomes dry. This is when we need the help of a moisturizer. When the skin becomes dry and scaly, moisturizers can assist by preventing further water loss, known as occlusion, and by adding humectants, substances that increase the hydrophilic properties of the skin. Humectant moisturizers contain substances such as alpha hydroxy acids or glycerine and add moisture to the top layer of skin while occlusive moisturizers form a waterproof layer over the skin that reduces moisture and allows the body’s natural rehydration process to return the layer to a normal level.

Holiday 2005 Make Up Tips

Holiday 2005 Make Up Tips

There are some great new looks out this fall and holiday season. If you’re planning on going out, you’re probably looking for a new or different look. I’ve compiled several of my favorite styles for this season to help you choose the one that will best fit your situation and needs.
Focus On The Lips
This look is all about your lips. Whether you use a bright jeweled lip color or a matte frost, remember to use a gemstone color. They’re hot this season. Amethyst, ruby, gold, garnet, plum, etc. are all great colors. Try to use a color a few shades darker than your usual lip color.
Don’t do much else but add mascara to your top lashes only. This look is complimented by loads of mascara. You can also add a neutral color to the crease of your eyelid. (The crease of the eyelid is becoming a popular style. )
Line It Up
Do you love eyeliner? Looking for something new and exotic? This is the holiday make up tip for you. It’s all about eyeliner.
Using a dark eyeliner pencil, lightly trace where you want your liner on both the top and bottom lids. Then take black eyeshadow and mix it with a little hydrosol, water, visine, etc. Using a thin eyeliner brush, dip it in your creamy eyeshadow mixture and trace over the eyeliner pencil line. Keep your line very thin. You’ll find it’s easier to trace over the line than to do it freehand.
Now for the fun part. You’ll see a space where your top and bottom lashes meet. Place your eyeliner brush there and draw it outwards. Make a curve as you pull it away. You’ll get a “cat eye” look and your line will go from thick to thin. You’ll get perfect placement every time.
Then add some baby pink blush just to the apples of your cheeks. Using a brush the same size of the apples of your cheeks works best. Smile and place your brush against your apple. Does it look too big, too small or just right? You’ll be able to tell when you’ve got it right. Tap the excess blush off and tap it onto the apples of your cheeks. It’s easier if you’re smiling while you do this. Dust your brush off on a piece of tissue then gently blend the blush back towards your ear a bit.
For your lips, avoid the gloss. Use a matte or a matte frost in the now popular color of pink with tan undertones.
The Red Lip
Yes, the red lip is back in vogue. And you can wear this awesome look too. It’s red and it’s matte and it’s gorgeous. You can go two ways with this look.
1. Red matte lips and nothing else.
2. Red matte lips and exotic eyes.
For lipstick try a blue-red. It’ll make your teeth look whiter compared to an orange or brown red. Berry colors are usually a winning color.
For the eyes, you’ll have a smudgey look using either jewel tones or matte. Remember not to mix them! One or the other. Apply vibrant gold, copper, chestnut or bronze over the entire eyelid and smudge it below the eye. Don’t use black, gray or charcoal for this look. Use a rich dark brown eyeliner (no black! ) and draw a thin line on the top and bottom lashes and if you like, line inside the eye. Then smudge the eyeliner so it’s still a visible line, but smudgey.
No blush for this look.
And there you go! You’ve got three of this season’s hottest styles to help you look your very best for all those holiday parties. Look and feel your best this season by not forgetting to take time for yourself this month. A little pampering can help ease the holiday stress.
