How to Cure Dark Armpits

How to Cure Dark Armpits

We go to great lengths to look after our armpits. Not only do we continuously throw on deodorants and antiperspirants in an effort to make
them smell nice, but men and women alike spend time every day removing the area from that area.

So after all that care is taken, a lot of men and women are discouraged to find that their armpit area seems to chronically be darker than
the rest of their body. This often leads to embarrassment, and even causes some men and women to completely avoid certain articles of
clothing that would otherwise put their darkened armpits on display.
There are a number of reasons why the armpit area may be darker than the rest of your body, some of them being major health concerns. Some
of these include:

  • Diabetes type II
  • Obesity
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Tumors
  • Medications


Sometimes your armpits will appear darker than the rest of your body because you have fair skin and the hair growing beneath the surface is
dark (try waxing as this will at least initially pull the dark hairs out from the root and the skin).You can start getting rid of you dark
armpit area today with some simple home remedies. One that you can do today is use a lemon. Cut a lemon so that you have a slice, and then
rub it right over the armpit area. Lemons naturally lighten the skin, cleanse the skin, and they have antimicrobial properties which help
prevent any continued darkening of your armpit area.Alternatively, you can take aloe vera gel and rub it under your arm pits, or you can try
using baking soda under your arms. The benefit to baking soda is that it not only can help lighten your armpits, but it will also help
absorb any sweat and odor.Another great way to try and treat your dark underarms yourself is to take fish oil supplements on a daily basis.
You can find fish oil capsules in any grocery store or natural help food store.It’s also important to keep the area as clean as possible and
to wear clothing that is made from natural fibers. Excessive sweating or tight fitting clothing can be the cause behind your dark armpit
woes, so try cleansing the armpit area twice a day and wear clothing that is made from cotton, wool, and other natural fibers.If you are
looking for a medical type of treatment for your dark underarms, there’s good news for you: you can receive over the counter treatments from
your doctor. There are oral medications that you can take, such as isotretinoin, and prescription creams that contain vitamin A that can be
applied to the area to help lighten up the skin.Lastly, if none of the above seem to be helping, it is possible to opt for laser
dermabrasion of the armpit area. This will greatly help reduce the darkening of your armpits.

How to Fix Frizzy Hair

How to Fix Frizzy Hair

Curly hair by its very nature is delicate. When it becomes damaged or dry, the curls frizz out and if you live in a humid climate, look out!
No need to panic, though, here are some tricks to keep frizziness at bay. 

  1. Learn to like your curls. Straightening efforts and hair relaxants damage hair.
  2. Keep shampooing to a minimum since shampoo tends to dry out hair. If you do wash your hair daily, dilute shampoo with an equal amount of
    water.
  3. Use a daily conditioner to keep hair moisturized. Finger-brush your hair while the conditioner is in it. Then rinse.
  4. Apply a leave-in conditioner or anti-frizz serum to your damp hair.
  5. Deep-condition your hair once a week.
  6. To touch up your hair in the afternoon, moisten your fingers with water and a small amount of conditioner. Run your fingers through your
    hair and smooth out the frizz.

How to Get the Best From Your CHI Flat Iron

Farouk’s CHI Flat Iron is simply the best hair straightener on the market. It is very easy to use, with a 10 foot swivel head cable which makes it even easier. The cable is longer than on most other brands, and the swivel head makes it so much easier to manage and manipulate.

You will find the CHI hair straightener much quicker to use than other irons, it does the job efficiently and leaves the hair silky smooth. It works for all hair types, from really dry, frizzy hair, even ethnic hair, right down to hair that is barely wavy, but needs a little smoothing. More dry frizzy hair will need protective product to stop it drying out too much.

1. The best way to use your CHI flat iron is to take small meshes (sections) of hair, 2 to 3 inches wide and 1/4 inch to ½ inch thick. The thicker your hair, the smaller meshes you should take.

2. Slide one plate under the mesh, close to the root without touching the scalp. Close the plates and slide slowly down the length of the hair to the tip. When your hair is really curly, go more slowly, allowing the heat to penetrate more fully, but don’t let it burn. It is best to go over it a second time, than risk burning your hair.

3. With shorter hair, it’s best to lift the hair up right from the scalp, and slide the irons upwards away from the scalp. This will allow you to more easily separate one mesh from another..

4. With longer hair of course this is not possible, because your arms wouldn’t be long enough! But you can start by making a parting just above your ear, sweeping everything to the other side of your head, and starting on the small amount that is left around this ear, gradually bringing a little more down on top of it. This way you won’t miss any..

The CHI Hair Straightener does a very good job even if your hair is already fairly straight. You will find just gliding the irons gently down the length of your hair will give you a silky smooth finish. When using any CHI Tools, allow the hair to cool before brushing or combing. This will ensure that your style will last longer.

Your CHI flat iron will also work as a curling tong. For this you would point the plates downwards, take a small mesh, about ½ to 1 inch square, and again starting close to the roots, wind the hair around one plate all the way from the root to the tip, then close the plates. After about 10 seconds, open the plates and slide them out of the curl, leaving the hair in the curl shape until it is cool. This can also be done from halfway down the length of the hair, if you only want the bottom curled.

Among the many CHI tools on the market, there are curling tongs which will make this job even easier, but curling can be done with the flat irons with a little bit of practice.

How to Get the Best Shave: Top 10 Shaving Tips

How to Get the Best Shave: Top 10 Shaving Tips


1.Make Sure Your Beard is Thoroughly Wet:
One of the keys to a great close shave without irritation or razor burn is to make sure your beard is thoroughly wet. Facial hair will
absorb moisture up to 30% of its volume. Hair swollen with water becomes quite weak and therefore easier to cut. Showering before shaving is
the ideal way to ensure you beard is properly moistened. If a shower is not possible, rinse your face and then apply a warm moistened towel
to your face for at least a couple of minutes. This is the technique that barbers use. Never shave cold or apply shaving products to a dry
face – this is one of the leading causes of razor burn and shaving rash.

2.Use a Quality Shaving Cream:
Use a shaving cream that has a high concentration of lubricants (eg silicones) and moisturizers. The best shaving creams create a rich
creamy lather and do not foam up like the cheaper drug store brands. The less "foaming" in the shave cream the better, as it is
what is in contact with the skin and beard that matters – all else is wasted. Less resistance, less irritation and less nicks also mean a
longer lasting blade! While the primary function of the shaving cream is to lubricate your face so that the razor will glide smoothly and
effortlessly across the surface, it also serves to lock the moisture into the whiskers, keeping them soft and upright, primed for the cut.
The ideal scenario is to leave the shaving cream on your face for at least a minute before you begin cutting, so that the beard is as soft
and wet as possible.

3.A Shaving Brush is One of the Best Tools:
One of the best tools you can use to achieve the optimum shave is a shaving brush (as top barbers do). A shaving brush does a couple of
things. First, it helps raise the hair so that a closer cut is possible. Second, it helps create a rich creamy lather with the shaving cream
that stays close to the skin. And, finally, it helps remove dead skin cells (exfoliation) which reduces the chance of blemishes, razor bumps
and also helps the skin look and feel smooth and healthy. Always look for a shaving brush with bristles that have the right balance between
softness (to create a rich creamy lather that stays close to the skin) and resistance to raise the beard (making a closer cut easier!)

4.Apply the shaving cream using the brush in a circular motion ending in an upward stroke to help lift the beard up and away from
the face.

5.Use a Quality Razor and Change the Blades:
Always use a good quality sharp razor blade. Be sure the blade is sharp. You’re not just cutting off hair, you’re also scraping off up to
two layers of surface skin when you shave. A dull blade is more traumatic to the skin, making your face feel scratchy and look blotchy – a
dull razor is one of the contributing factors to razor burn and shaving rash. Depending on the toughness of your beard, change the blade
somewhere between every three and every ten shaves, if you shave every day. Two weeks is too long to go without changing blades. Regardless
of the number of shaves, if the blade becomes dull, ditch it. As to which brand of razor to use – we think you can’t go wrong with any of
the Gillette Mach series. Of course there are very high quality and expensive razors available at specialty retailers that you may want to
try.
Rinse your blade under hot water before you begin to shave and after every few swipes. This removes the accumulated shaving cream, whiskers,
and skin gunk. The use of hot water here is to help lubricate, has nothing to do with "killing bacteria."

6. Use the Razor Properly:
Ideally shave in the direction of the beard growth. Start with the sides, then the moustache area and last the chin. The chin hairs are the
toughest, so this allows them the most time to soften under the shave cream.

7.If you want an even Closer Shave:
If you wish to achieve an even closer shave (as many barbers do) apply some more lather from your brush (add more cream if necessary) to the
areas you wish to shave again. Keep everything moist. This is one of the extra advantages of using a brush. For most guys, re-shaving
certain areas with the grain should do the job. Professional barbers, by the way, usually first shave with the grain, and then re-shave
going sideways – but they’re trained professionals!
But, don’t overshave. Too much shaving will cause skin irritation and the dreaded razor burn and shaving rash. Rinse the blade thoroughly
before you put it away. (The water temperature isn’t going to have any impact on bacteria; you’re rinsing the blade to get rid of hairs,
shaving cream, oils, and gunk, not to kill bacteria. You’d need to boil the razor for that or rinse it in alcohol, which is not necessary.)
After rinsing, shake the razor, but do not wipe the blade with a towel or tissue – that will just make it dull faster.

8.Cleanse and Soothe After Shaving:
After shaving, when the skin is most vulnerable, rinse the face with warm water and use a facial wash that has a high concentration of tea
tree oil (a natural antiseptic that is ideal to help cleanse and protect from spots and shaving rash) and witch hazel (for its soothing,
healing and astringent properties).

9. Rinse with the coolest water that is comfortable and pat dry with a clean towel. (Don’t rub! Just pat).

10.Finish off with an After Shave Lotion or Balm:
Shaving can remove up to two layers of skin. There is no other regular activity that does this, which is why it is so important to use a
good quality moisturizer after shaving. An after shave lotion, designed as an after shave balm and moisturizer in one, is the ideal way to
replace lost moisture and soothe the skin. And, be sure to use one made just for guys – these formulas are designed so that they are not
greasy, absorb quickly and dry with a matte finish so that your face doesn’t look shiny. Typically mositurizers made for women are too
greasy as men tend to have not only thicker skin but also oiler skin than women due to men’s larger sebaceous glands. The best after shave
lotions not only replace lost moisture and soothe, but also have ingredients that will cool and refresh the skin.

How to Give Yourself a Professional Style Manicure at Home

Professional manicures can be extremely expensive, but with a little time and patience, and the right products, you can manicure yourself at home and achieve a very professional look. I suggest products from Essie and Nailtiques to get a salon quality manicure from your house.

The first thing to do is to clean old nail polish off with a nail varnish remover, like Nailtiques’ non-acetone remover. Put liquid on cotton pads to remove, and then wash your hands thoroughly to ensure there are no traces of this remover, as this will affect your new polish.

File your nails with an emery board (not metal files) to remove any ragged edges and to leave your nails at a uniform length. Swipe the emery board in one direction only, do not ‘saw’ backwards and forwards across the top of your nail, as this will split the nail layers.

Put your fingertips to soak in a small bowl with warm water and a little dish washing soap: this will soften your cuticles while removing any excess oil which may impede good adherence of nail varnish.

Once the cuticles are softened, apply some cuticle cream and massage in gently. Use the tip of an orange stick with a thin layer of cotton wrapped around and push back gently on the cuticles. Rub gently in a circular motion to remove any dead cuticle skin, while pushing back healthy cuticle away from the nail. Wash off any remaining cream or oil, and repeat all with the other hand, leaving the first to dry.

Once both hands are prepared for polishing, starting with the driest of the two, begin with a base coat. A general-purpose base coat will protect your nails from absorbing dyes from the nail polish (which will leave your nails tinted slightly even after you’ve removed your polish) and help the nail varnish last longer. A real good one here is Essie’s First Base Base Coat.

Nails which are dry, ridged or prone to splitting and peeling will need a special base coat for the problem, like Essie’s
Protein Base Coat 
or Nailltique’s Protein Formula. Three strokes is enough to cover the nail, one on each side and then one up the center, always beginning at the cuticle.

Allow this to dry then add the first coat of your chosen color, again with only three strokes; one each side and one up the center. It is very important to allow each coat to dry thoroughly before continuing with the next. Three coats is optimum as this will achieve the closest to the colour that you picked from the chart. Essie has a very wide range of colors to choose from and their nail varnish contains no Formaldehyde, DBP or Toluene.

Finish the job with a good top coat from Essie: this will protect your polish and nails from chipping or damage.

The best way to test if each layer is dry is with the tip of your tongue. Touch the nail very gently with your tongue, and if you can taste the varnish it’s not dry. If you spoil the surface of any coat, you need to go back and start again from the base coat up. Nailtiques’ Cuticle and Hand Cream will keep both in excellent, soft condition between manicures.

If you follow these tips on how to give yourself a professional style manicure at home, you should be able to achieve a salon quality look to your nails. Nailtiques and Essie provide all the top quality nail care products that one could possibly need, and are available at excellent prices from http://www.febstore.com

How to Keep Nails from Breaking

How to Keep Nails from Breaking

Nail care is important when you’re trying to grow out your fingernails, maintain length or have just gotten a fabulous manicure. Breaking
your nails is always a risk in everyday life. Give your nails some extra assistance to keep them strong and health. 

Instructions

1. Don’t use your fingernails as tools. Picking, opening and scraping with them encourage nail tips to break and peel.

2. Wear gloves when cleaning or gardening. Many household chemicals are harsh on your nails, and any rough activity exposes
nails to breakage.
3. Don’t bite your nails, and don’t peel off old nail polish. You nails will weaken and become brittle, which increases the
chances for them to break.

4. Apply a coat of nail polish, colored or clear. Ordinary polish can help retain moisture in the nails, and there are even
types of nail polish formulated to strengthen your nails. Don’t pick at the polish, and remove old polish and apply a fresh coat after a
week. Avoid polish removers with acetone, which dries out the nails.


    5. 
    Moisturize your hands twice a day, rubbing lotion into your nails and cuticles. Nails need moisturizer just as your
    skin does. Reapply after washing your hands and removing nail polish.


      6. 
      Maintain a healthy diet. Get plenty of protein, and eat whole grains and leafy greens for iron. Milk and eggs
      provide zinc as well as protein. Taking biotin, a B-complex vitamin, in supplement form can benefit your hair as well as your nails.

        How to Prevent Cavities & Gum Disease

        Dental health is a concern for every human being. Humans must eat to survive and must use their teeth to chew their food. An unhealthy mouth can severely impede this process. Modern dental hygiene products and routine dental checkups can drastically reduce problems such as cavities and gum disease.

        Regular dental checkups are strongly recommended by dentists and oral surgeons. By following a few basic tips, everyone can improve their overall dental health.

        Instructions Things You’ll Need Toothbrush Floss Mouthwash
        1. Brush your teeth regularly, at least twice daily after eating breakfast and before going to sleep at night. If you
        habitually use tobacco or drink coffee, then you may want to brush your teeth at least three times a day, as these products can stain tooth enamel.
        2. Floss regularly. Many dentists recommend flossing after each meal, particularly after eating foods such as popcorn, meat and nuts, which tend to stick to hard-to-reach places in the mouth.
        3. Use a mouthwash every time you brush and floss and after your meals. Mouthwash, used regularly, will kill bacteria and reduce your chance of developing gum disease.
        4. Schedule regular dental checkups. To maintain adequate dental hygiene, checkups should be more frequent for children, typically every 3 months, and, for adults, usually every 6 months.
        5. Eat foods that are low in sugar and starch to lessen your chance of getting cavities. Ask your dentist about foods that
        can promote dental health, such as fruits like apples or strawberries or green vegetable staples like celery and broccoli that are high in iron, calcium and vitamin A. Cheese, milk and yogurt are also great foods that promote dental health.

        How to Trim nose Hair

        Having excess nose hair can result in embarrassing social situations and self-consciousness. Luckily, there’s a solution. Simply buy a pair of small, curved scissors or an electric nose hair trimmer and use it to remove the unwanted strands poking out of your nose.

        Instructions

        • 1Wash the inside of your nose with a cotton swap moistened with water and a mild soap. Be gentle and completely rinse the soap away to avoid irritation.
        • 2Find a bright area with a mirror. A magnifying makeup mirror with adjustable lighting will work, though a common bathroom mirror can also be used. If you need more light while using a regular mirror, point a small flashlight or pen light at your nostrils.
        • 3Get sharp scissors or an electric nose hair trimmer with fresh batteries.
        • 4Insert the scissors or the electric hair trimmer into your nose and trim excess hair. If you are using scissors, don’t position your scissors too close to your nostril. If you are using an electric trimmer, do not shove the trimmer too far into your nasal cavity. When trimming nose hair, a good rule of thumb is to only remove the amount of hair that is visible to someone standing in front of you.
        • 5Remove your scissors or trimmers and clean them for the next use. You may sterilize the tips of your scissors with alcohol; refer to the electric trimmer’s owner’s manual for cleaning instructions.
