8 Skin Care Tips Part 2 of 2

Tips 1 to 4

8. LOAD UP ON FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND PROTEIN. The protein collagen can be said to be our skin’s best friend. It provides skin its firmness and elasticity. Collagen can be derived from protein-rich food such as milk, fish, peanuts and certain vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are rich in anti-oxidants that help our skin recover from the harmful effects of free radicals and sun damage. Citrus fruits that are rich in Vitamin C are also vital for healthy skin, as Vitamin C promotes the body’s collagen production.

8 Skin Care Tips Part 1 of 2

There is more to skin than meets the eye. Being the largest organ in our bodies, it only deserves proper nourishment and care. Here are eight skin care tips to have that healthy beautiful skin that you have always wanted!

1. LIMIT YOUR EXPOSURE TO THE SUN. Ninety percent of problems associated with skin aging are the result of too much sun exposure. UV rays emitted by the sun (and specifically UVA rays) break down the collagen and elastin in our skin. Use sun screen whenever you have to go out in the sun.
Sun Protection from

2. CHECK LABELS ON YOUR BEAUTY PRODUCTS. Get rid of old beauty products. Cosmetics that have been sitting on your vanity table or medicine cabinet for over a year should be thrown away because those pots and tubes develop microorganism communities over time.

3. QUIT SMOKING. Smoking restricts blood vessels, it prevents oxygen and nutrients from getting to the skin. This makes skin to appear pale and unhealthy. An Italian study also linked smoking to a skin disease called psoriasis.
Fight Premature Aging with!

4. LOWER YOUR STRESS AND SLEEP MORE. We all suffer from occasional bouts of stress, and skin can be one of the first organs to show external signs of internal stress: dryness, sensitivity, spots and excess oil are all symptoms. Getting enough sleep is also important. The term “beauty rest” actually pertains to the time our bodies repair and rejuvenate.

Take Baby Steps to a New YOU! - Part 3 of 4

Steps 1 and 2 | See Steps 3 and 4

Step 5 - Habit is what keeps you going. When you have accustomed yourself to your new healthier routines, it is time to take your fitness activities up a higher notch. Try signing up at your nearest gym or health club. You will find out that doing cardiovascular exercises like the treadmill, stationary bike or the rower can burn as much as over a hundred calories in just fifteen minutes.
The FIRM, an effective and fun exercise.
Do not forget, however, to have your warm-ups before hitting the floor. Warming up reduces the risk of pulled and torn muscles and prepares your body for the actual exercises. Cardiovascular exercises are good for improving your heart, lungs and blood circulation. It reduces blood pressure, strengthens the immune system and lowers stress levels thus reducing the risk of heart disease.
The FIRM. Sculpt your entire body!
Complement your cardio workout with resistance training, better known as weights. You can consult the gym’s trainers on how to use the equipment and what specific areas it targets for developing muscle mass. Resistance training also strengthens your bones and protects your joints from wear and tear. It reduces body fat and increases metabolism so you continue burning fats even when your body is at rest. It helps reduce the risk of diabetes as it improves glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity.
Stretching after exercise is a must. It relaxes tight and tense muscles that often accompany stress.
The FIRM. Guaranteed visible results in 10 workouts!
Step 6 - Rest and relaxation is an invaluable part of your fitness routine. Missing out on this important aspect runs the body down and makes it vulnerable to virus and illnesses. When the body is weak, it affects the emotional and the spiritual system.

When your body is at rest, your body recuperates and is getting stronger. With enough rest, one will achieve better memory and concentration at work. As it provides mental balance, rest and relaxation gives a person a happier disposition in life.

Take Baby Steps to a New YOU! - Part 2 of 4

Steps 1 and 2

Step 3 - Start with your commitment right away. Procrastination will only encourage you to not go through your commitment at all. It may be difficult and it is actually inadvisable to make drastic changes like crash dieting or taking on resistance training without proper orientation. But starting it as soon as possible makes all the difference.

Maybe you can start by committing at least thirty minutes of your time to do light exercises every morning or doing crunches while watching your favorite TV show. Maybe you can substitute that second cup of rice at lunch time by eating a fruit instead.
Delicious low carb food in less time.
The possibilities are only limited by your creativity and resourcefulness. Health magazines and the internet are comprehensive sources where you can get ideas from. Remember that you are taking baby steps. So take it as fast or as slow as it suits you.

Step 4
- Keeping track of your eating habits and calorie intake is more effective than just “watching what you eat.” An average woman’s daily caloric needs range from 1,200kcal to 1,500kcal, while that of a man’s is 1,400kcal to 1,800kcal. It varies according to one’s age, ideal Body Mass Index (BMI), and activity level. Eating more than the ideal caloric need will mean more fat stores, while eating below the minimum of 1,200kcal is unsafe.
GT Xpress101. Simply great Food, Fast!
Did you know that if you crash diet, your body’s defense mechanism is to hold on to dear fat for future energy reserve? Small but frequent meals are the body’s best friend in losing weight. It also keeps the blood sugar levels from making large up-and-down fluctuations.

If your goal is to maintain your weight, just eat enough calories to fuel your daily needs. If your goal is to lose weight, lessening your caloric intake by 500kcal is safe and healthy. This must be coupled with a combination of physical activity to increase your body’s metabolism. Increased metabolism means faster burning of fats, as opposed to just dieting.

Take Baby Steps to a New YOU! - Part 1 of 4

Think of your journey to fitness as if you are a baby learning to walk for the first time.

A baby learns to walk by himself without minding the falls. Nothing is able to stop him because that is how determined he is to walk. Now he’s walking, now he’s down. He slowly stands up and starts walking again. He trips and falls, but he just keeps on standing at his own two feet, slowly balancing his movements, until he is finally able to walk by himself.

Now, imagine applying this principle to your goals in weight loss. Of your vision towards a healthier version of you. Wouldn’t it be fun and exciting?

Step 1 - Acknowledge that weight loss is not just a matter of cutting down on food consumption and burning out the calories by window shopping or by walking from the second floor of your office to get that memo waiting for you at the fourth floor. It is achieved through an efficient synergy of the mind, body and spirit.
The FIRM, an effective and fun exercise.
What causes one become overweight is the same as everybody’s. The number of calories going inside the body, that is the food intake, is more than the calories moving outside the body, that is the activity level. Factors such as heredity, hormonal imbalance, drugs, smoking and stress are just factors that aggravate it. These are not the main instigators.
The FIRM. Sculpt your entire body!
Step 2 - Set your mind into what you really want to achieve. Put your goals into writing. Make a commitment card. Write on your card how much weight do you really want to lose? How many weeks or months do you give yourself to achieve this? Ideally, with proper diet and consistent exercise, a person can lose an average of two to three pounds per week. Then sign your card as if you’re signing a legal and binding contract, except you will not be held liable by law, but by your principles.
The FIRM. Guaranteed visible results in 10 workouts!
Post your commitment card on something that is always visible to you. On your medicine cabinet, so can see it as you brush your teeth before going to work, or on your desktop if you’re working most of the time on your computer. You can put it in your wallet so that you will be reminded every time you open it to pay for the parking ticket. Post it anywhere you like as long as it is always visible to you.

Collagen for your Skin

Our skin is like a mirror. It reflects our state of health from inside out. As it protects and covers our body, it is therefore essential to take care of it at all times.

The protein Collagen makes up to 70% of our skin. It provides elasticity and shape, giving skin its firmness as well as the ability to retain moisture. When collagen is reduced it leads to skin dehydration and wrinkles.

What Causes Collagen Reduction?

Several factors lead to collagen reduction. Biological factors include the natural aging process. Science has proven that as people age, they tend to produce lesser collagen. Hormonal changes, poor metabolism, chickenpox and acne also lead to collagen depletion.

Environmental factors like overexposure to UV rays, chlorinated water and free radicals threaten our skin as they slow down collagen production. Personal lifestyle like smoking or exposure to second-hand smoke and stress also negatively affects the collagen levels in our body.

How To Replace Lost Collagen

Like most proteins, collagen can be derived from a variety of food sources. Soy products like milk and cheese, dark green vegetables like spinach and asparagus, peanuts like cashew, pecans and almonds contain healthy amounts of collagen. Fish like tuna and salmon are excellent sources of omega fatty acids that stimulate collagen production. Red fruits like red peppers, tomatoes and berries, help boost antioxidants to enhance collagen’s function. Online Gift Certificates!
However, having a protein-rich diet is not enough. Beyond the aesthetic appeal, our skin deserves more because it shields our body from harm. Thus, it is a must to keep it nourished with collagen regularly.

Ginseng: Your Way to Energy and Vitality

The first recorded use of ginseng is over two thousand years old in Chinese Medicine. Since that time, ginseng has been used medicinally by every culture and healers around the world. Science today is proving what the Ancient Chinese and other healers have known for millenniums; ginseng can help boost energy, reduce stress and increase stamina.

Traditionally, ginseng has been used to enhance sexual desire, by promoting sex hormone production. Recent research shows that regular use of Ginseng is helpful in the treatment of memory loss (Alzheimer's), balance of blood sugar levels (Diabetes), slowing down the aging process, and helping the immune system.

There are three types of Ginseng and all of them have a common constituent called Ginsenoside: Asian, Korean, or Chinese ginseng (all common names) refers to a plant native to North Korea and China. American Ginseng is native to Eastern North America from Southern Ontario to Georgia and as far west as Wisconsin. Siberian ginseng, as the name implies, is grown in Siberia. It is not a true ginseng all, but it has many of the same properties.

Of all three types, Korean Ginseng is found to be the most potent in increasing physical and mental endurance, boosting energy, normalizing body functions, reducing cholesterol, and preventing cancer.


IMMUNE SYSTEM - Enhances the natural resistance and recuperative power of the body
BLOOD PRESSURE - Useful for regulating blood pressure
FERTILITY - Improves libido and sexual vigor and may prevent impotence
STAMINA - Improves stamina, alleviates symptoms of tiredness and exhaustion

Edmark Café Ginseng Coffee makes use of Korean Ginseng extract and only the best Arabica coffee beans for your health and drinking pleasure.

How to Lose 15 lbs. Naturally

I started my weight loss journey about three months ago. Back then I weighed over 160 pounds. As I enrolled myself in a nearby health club, I realized the importance of regular cardiovascular exercise and resistance training. But sometimes I get so bored and lazy that I skip some parts of my workout routine. I was disappointed to find out that I lost only 2 lbs. in the first month. This was because I was not following what my trainer has taught me. One time, I suddenly remembered that I have stashed somewhere at home a copy of Billy Blanks Taebo VCD.

Good Times Entertainment

Taebo is a fusion of the words Tae Kwon Do and Boxing. Developed by Taekwondo expert Billy Blanks, it involves motions of martial arts like punches and kicks and aerobic exercises through basic choreography, coupled with high intensity music. Over all, it benefits the body by increasing cardiovascular fitness, strength, muscular endurance and flexibility.

$10 off Billy Blanks TaeBo AMPED Multipack - Plus FREE Bonus DVD. Was $29.95 Now Only $19.95!

So as soon as I found it I started doing Taebo at home to complement my thrice weekly visit to the gym. Then I noticed that I lost weight much faster. What I really, really like about this program is that it is so much fun to do. You will hardly notice that you have finished the half-hour or one-hour session! In just a few weeks I have lost a total of 15 lbs. And I intend to lose more over the next month!

The Firm Total Body TransFIRMation System now only 2 payments of $29.95 (plus S&H). Get visible results in just 10 workouts!
