Heating food above 105 degrees Fahrenheit destroys the enzymes as well
as 50% of the protein and 70-90% of the vitamins and minerals. Eating
cooked food overtaxes the body’s enzyme reserves. Eating more raw food
decreases the amount of digestive enzymes your body has to produce. Raw
foods are foods in their natural state with the enzymes left intact.
Enzymes are needed to perform many functions in the body including
digestion, assimilation and elimination of food. A drained enzyme supply
can result in vitamin and mineral deficiencies, premature aging and low
energy. Raw foods high in enzymes include sprouts, papaya and

made me aggravated, made me cry, and made me angry. Thousands of people each
year are afflicted by it, and it makes recluses out of a good many teenagers.
to popular belief, acne is not caused by dirty pores or eating
chocolate. Acne is actually caused by overactive sebaceous glands.
Hormones in you body cause acne to appear. Acne is extremely common in
people ages 12-24, when our hormones are very active due to puberty, but
many people continue to have acne outbreaks throughout their lives.
Acne can show up on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. While it

Jenny:Andrews B Gray hair is stubborn and it can sometimes be difficult to color. In
some cases it turns a smoky unnatural color and in other cases it simply
does not cover at all. So, how do you get 100% gray coverage each and
every time you color your hair?
The key lies in choosing the right color for your hair type. There are
several types of colors including temporary (washes out with 1 shampoo),
semi-permanent (washes out gradually over about 4 weeks) and permanent
hair color (will not wash out). The main difference of each is the
strength of the developer used in each. Color developer is the
ingredient that is responsible for pushing the color beneath your
cuticle layer so that it cannot be washed out.
Erica:Bosworth Brazilian waxing first came to North America in the late 1980s, but
didnt gain widespread popularity until the later 1990s. The procedure
removes all the hair in the pubic region, front and back. In some cases,
a small strip of hair is left in the center, but total hair removal is
more common. The smooth look is very popular in Brazil where thong
bikinis for sun tanning are so common.
Not all beauty salons offer this form of waxing. Brazilian requires an
experienced technician. When the technician works fast, there is less
pain associated with the procedure. This form of waxing is more common
in major cities, such as Los Angeles, New York and Philadelphia. As the
procedure gains popularity, it becomes available in more areas.
Skin care problems, like sagging skin, wrinkles, brown spots, acne,

Lisa used to love going out on the town with friends every once in a
while. It sure was a great stress reducer. But, then, Lisa started to
experience skin problems, like skin blemishes (possibly from all that
sun exposure earlier in life) and some wrinkles around the eyes (you
can't stop aging you know) and elsewhere. It seemed like co-workers and
others didn't talk to Lisa the same anymore and they didn't want to go
out with her as much. What the heck was happening here?
Some words about anti-aging and disease prevention
The aging process is for the greater part no mystery
anymore. It consists for a great part of daily damages done on the macroscopic,
tissue, cellular and genetic levels. These add up as the years are passing.
These damages have specific causes like oxidating agents, sun beams, mechanical
wear and tear, psychological stress, lack of some nutritional components and
too much of others, like fat.

A secret has been revealed in the news over the past few weeks. I was a
part of that secret. What was the secret you ask? Men are now using skin
care products as a part of their daily activities!
I started a few months ago due to something I learned about myself. I
had my picture taken. Not just a standard picture. I had my picture
taken with a special ultraviolet camera and light that shows damaged
skin due to excessive sun exposure. First they took a picture of my face
with standard light. Although not a flattering picture, it looked like I
expected. Then they took a picture of my face with the ultraviolet
light. What did I look like? I looked like I had a face FULL of
freckles. Only these freckles weren't the cute ones that would have
showed up in the first picture. They showed that I have a significant
amount of sun damage. I guess my early years of working and playing
outside all summer long with little or no sun protection is catching up
It is very important to take care of one's skin and with the current
weather conditions your skin care just goes for a toss. It is an
integral part like you take care of your teeth. Everyday care and
moisturizing helps your skin in a very long run. It can make a good
amount of difference once you start taking care of your skin. When I say
skin it doesn’t mean your face is the only thing that has to be taken
care and you should take care of your whole body.
Before getting any of the home remedies done on your face you should see
to it that you are not allergic to any of these fruits or vegetables.
Taking care of your skin by use of some natural home remedies can be of
great help. To get rid of scars and tan you can scrub lime with granules
of sugar which would help in lightening your skin and also removing the
dead cells which are present.
As we grow older and are constantly exposed to the UV rays of the sun
our skin starts to appear dry and dull. This is the result of the
outside layer of the skin getting excessive build up and is not
exfoliated on a regular basis. Build-up is especially noticed after we
have spent the summer in the sun. It’s more apparent to women since we
realize that our make-up doesn't look as fresh and our foundation begins
to fade within a couple of hours. Our make-up and foundation is
actually being absorbed into the accumulated dead skin cells, which
gives a very tired and unhealthy look to the skin.
To keep your skin vibrant and healthy on a regular basis, you must have a
regimen that incorporates exfoliation and nourishing the skin. Your
regular skin care program does not have to be a department store or drug
store solution. You can prepare an all nature skin care program right
from your kitchen table and manage to get the same results if not better
results that your store bought product promises.

One of the oldest and most practiced forms of body art is the
of body hair. It is noticeable that no other creature on the planet cuts
or colors their hair because they want it to look different. Apart from a
bit of hair or feather plucking, humans are the only animals that
deliberately change the appearance or presence of body and head hair.
From the extremes of full-growth to complete depilation, every
combination in between is possible.
It's not as simple as it sounds. There is a difference!
When washing your hair, it is best if you get in the shower. You may give
yourself a back-ache and won’t be able to rinse properly if you wash your hair
in the sink. Start by rinsing your hair to remove any leave-in conditioner or
styling aids. Use a quarter sized dollop of shampoo and rub your hands together
to distribute it. Put the shampoo on your scalp, not the ends of your hair. Work
up a lather by massaging your scalp with your fingers and scalp brush. Don’t mix
your hair all over your head; the more you do, the more tangled it will become.
The winter is so hard on your hair. When that cold wind
hits it, it can dry out your hair and damage it beyond
repair and the only hope is to trim your hair to "cut off"
the damaged ends. Wait! I don't want to cut my hair!
Here are some tips to get through the winter with the
least possible damage to your hair. Maybe this year you
won't have to cut it.
The hair loss industry is not one that inspires great confidence in most
people. I have to admit this is perfectly understandable given the
damage caused by the many rogues and charlatans who have abused the
trust of far too many vulnerable people - people who have received
worthless and even dangerous products or advice in exchange for their
hard earned cash. The end result is the prevalance of a stigma that the
industry is hard pressed to shake off.
There seems to me to be definite parallels between this era, and the
Elizabethan Age, when it comes to women, and their desperate struggle to
either halt the natural aging of their appearance, or, to discover a
miracle age-reversal method. During the sixteenth century, well-born
women were obsessed with achieving, and maintaining, 'ideal' beauty, as
they perceived it, to the point of what we would call 'madness'. What
was this ideal they so longed to possess? Youthful unlined alabaster
skin, overly bright eyes, red cheeks and lips, and the fairest of hair
colors. Add to these attributes, a high, arched, pale eyebrow, and high
brow line. To achieve the 'look' of perfection, these women made use of
the period’s highly respected skin care techniques, and the finest
cosmetics available to them, at the time.
If you are a teenage girl, there is no harm in experimenting with
your looks. You must be detected as early as you can because you may
ever have to do with cosmetics on a daily basis. You just need to be
familiar with a few tips when applying makeup and a basic routine that
beautiful face to keep as healthy as possible to develop.
If warning signs of skin cancer were staring you right in the face,
would you recognize them? Knowing what to look for when it comes to your
skin can give you a good idea of when you may need to visit your

When a person reads about permanent makeup, many are skeptical. The
idea of a everlasting procedure could be unnerving, although this sort
of procedure has proven to be a wonderful experience for several
participants. Permanent makeup is not an on the spot decision making
process where you pick from a variety of styles and wish for the best.
Millions and millions of people
around the world, male and female, remove unwanted and excessive hair from
their faces and body everyday. There are many options and methods to consider.
Hair removal tends to fall into two
main categories; non-permanent hair removal (shaving and depilatory creams to
mention a few) and permanent hair removal (electrolysis and laser hair
removal). As lifestyles change and become more demanding, and as technology
develops, permanent methods have become more and more popular, especially laser
hair removal, which was the most desired cosmetic treatment in a 2010 survey.
Beauty is no longer considered a 'woman thing'. More men than ever are
visiting salons for treatments and stocking up their bathroom cabinet with
creams, potions and lotions to cover everything from healthy shiny hair, neat
and tidy nails, moisturisers and anti ageing products to hair removal. Yes,
hair removal. It is no longer just the fairer sex that struggles to keep their
skin soft, smooth and fuzz free.
One of the most interesting topics on skin care is 'anti -aging skin care'.
As one gets older, the natural defence of our skin (and in fact of the whole
body) weakens. 'Anti aging skin care' is about protecting your skin from the
negative effects of aging process. 'Anti -aging skin care' helps in maintaining
a young and fresh look for a longer period of time. However, 'anti -aging skin
care' doesn't end just here. Besides maintaining your looks (good looks),
'anti- aging skin care' is also about retaining the resistance to disease.
Though the awareness about anti- aging has increased over a period of time,
still a lot of people are unable to recognize the aging symptoms (and hence are
unable to determine if they are in need of additional anti -aging skin care
Do you know the secret behind that ever glowing skin of Madonna? Do you know

There are various uses of botox and a clear overview about them can be of
immense help. One of the most poisonous naturally growing substance Botulinum
toxin is a neurotoxin protein produced by a bacterium known as Clostridium
botulinum. For commercial purposes this substance is sold under a brand name

Laser hair removal is rapidly growing to be the most popular quick
painless hair removal treatment of all time. This is largely because of
the immense benefits that the treatment seems to promise to millions of
people around the world who are feeling unattractive due to the presence
of unwanted body hair. Electrolysis for hair removal is fast becoming a
thing of the past even as quick hair removal methods like waxing and
tweezing continue to diminish in popularity as long-term or permanent
hair removal treatments.
Laser Hair Removal is one of the newest technologies for eliminating
that unwanted body hair. It is quick, easy and relatively painless. So,
what's it going to cost? Well, how laser hair removal is priced depends
on a couple of factors:
The typical hair and hair follicles of those of African descent are
tightly curled, thus producing hair that spirals. Black hair also
typically has a larger diameter than Caucasian hair and retains less
water, thus its relative “kinkiness.” The many styling methods utilized
on Black hair cause concern with hair loss. Black hair is very strong,
fortunately so because Black hair styles cause a great deal of stress on
the hair and scalp.
For example, using a hair pick to pick the hair up to a bushy style is a
very damaging process due to the constant pulling causing stress on the
hair shaft as well as the follicle. In fact, combing Black hair in
general can create high stress on Black hair and cause breakage, which
perpetuates dryness. Conrowing and braiding are methods of hairstyling
that pull the hair tight, and this can cause a great deal of stress on
the hair and scalp resulting in hair loss. Braiding that results in the
hair being pulled very tight can cause traumatic alopecia, a hair loss
that is caused by trauma to the hair and scalp. Traumatic alopecia is
usually reversible with proper hair care.
Everybody wants to look and feel fantastic and to enjoy the confidence
that brings. However, excessive body hair is a common problem effecting
both men and women and varies from person to person. It can be
unsightly, causing embarrassment and loss of confidence but removing it
can be just as bad. Hair removal is often seen as a major inconvenience
and a chore to say the least.
The primary step to keeping your skin healthy is preventing damage.
