5 Natural Remedies For Dry Skin

  Why suffer with dry skin when the remedies can be found in your own kitchen?
Dry skin is a frustrating yet common skin problem which tends to get worst especially during winter. Not only does it usually itch and flake, but also looks and feels unpleasant. So, it is no wonder that there are countless number of products out there in the market claiming to be the ultimate cure for dry skin. There are many causes for dry skin including genetics and age - the older you get, the lesser oil your skin produces, which makes your skin dry up quicker than usual. In addition to that, the environment also plays a role. Low humidity and cold weather are also the common culprits behind dry skin. Many are unaware of other causes which are over usage of heater, air conditioners, harsh detergents and soaps, as well as too many hot showers a day. Here are some remedies that are cheaper and healthier than products you buy.

Eastern & Western Massage: What's the Difference?

Massage is a form of therapy that has been practiced in many countries and cultures for literally thousands of years. There are many uses for massage. Sometimes it is used simply for recreational relaxation. In other cases, it is used to target a specific part of the body that has become painful and problematic. Massage is often used along with other forms of therapy such as saunas, acupuncture and acupressure. Different cultures and regions have their own opinions about which supplemental treatments are most effective when used in tandem with massage. 

Revitalization and relaxation are two of the primary results of massage therapy. Over the years, people in the west have developed a different philosophy regarding massage than the eastern countries where massage first originated. The differing approaches of the two regions have led many people to take sides and proclaim that one type of massage is better than the other. The method of massage that is practiced in the western world focuses on the various aspects of the physical body and the result of continued pressure being applied to specific areas. The method of massage that the eastern world has embraced revolves around the energy that can be created by stimulating various parts of the body. What this basically means is that the western approach is a healing system that is created to address specific areas of the body. The eastern approach is centred around the balance and flow of energy as it relates to healing. 


The Perfect Combination For Gorgeous Nude Lips

         Today we are going to talk about nude lips and their power of making a strong statement in a very subtle way. Nude lips are classy, they  have a sexy yet innocent look and they go with every kind of make up. What's not to like in them ? Although, it looks simple, finding the right shade of nude lipstick or gloss isn't as easy to find as you may think it is. The shade should look natural on you and work with your skin tone, in order to get the perfect look.
