8 healthy skin habits that every lady in her 20s need to establish


Many of us are guilty of skin care mistakes that could spell doom. Of those many of us are guilty of include failing to wash out makeup before bed or skipping sunscreen in our routine.

While you may be young and wrinkle free now, taking proper care of your skin at a young age is what will ensure that you stay wrinkle free even as you get older.

Rather than struggle to have to have flawless skin later in life, it is best to incorporate proper skin care habits as early as your 20s. Simply put, you take care of your skin and it will take care of you.

Here are eight healthy habits that you need in your life for younger skin in the years to come.

1. Simplify your routine

Sometimes we tend to go overboard with our skin care products in our quest for flawless skin. Having a lot of products in your cabinet however does not guarantee better skin. Instead, stick to a few products that actually work for you. Using too many different products means that you are mixing up too many chemicals, fragrances and ingredients which is not the best thing for your skin. A product takes about six weeks before you can start seeing results so give it time to work before you go buy another one.

2. Cleanse correctly

Invest in a good cleanser that cleans your face without taking away your skin’s natural oils. A good cleanser should be of neutral pH, gentle and a non-soap. When washing your face, rub it in circular motions so as to encourage blood flow leaving you with a healthy glow.

3. Use a mild exfoliant

Since we shed about 50 million skin cells per day, it is important to scrub them away by exfoliating. Stay away from face scrubs that are too abrasive as they cause your face to discolor or even cause scarring. Pick a mild, inexpensive product from your local beauty shop and exfoliate about two times a week.

4. Moisturize

Moisturizing is a critical part of keeping your skin young. Just because you have oily skin does not mean you should skip your moisturizer. Instead, get a light lotion or a serum and skip the heavy cream-based ones. For normal or dry skin, get a facial oil or cream.

5. Cover up

The sun is not very kind to your skin and 90 percent of aging is triggered by unprotected exposure to the sun. Frequent tanning can also cause you to have a deadly skin cancer known as melanoma. This means that you need to cover up your skin in sunscreen and not just at the beach or pool, but everywhere else. To simplify your skin care routine, invest in a moisturizer that has at least an SPF of 30.

6. Stop picking

Popping your pimples can actually get addictive and hard stop but it is one really unhealthy habit for your skin. It can lead to scarring, dark marks and even red marks on your face. Popping your pimples can also lead to epidermal inclusion cysts, a condition where you get round lumps on the skin that might need surgical removal.

7. Catch more sleep

One of the causes of accelerated aging is lack of sufficient sleep. While you are taking care of your body on the outside, you also have to allow it to work from the inside out. Maximizing your sleep gives your skin a chance to recover from all the sun damage on your skin.

8. Eat more whole foods

The skin is the largest organ in your body and what you eat will definitely reflect on your skin. It is important to consume Omega-3 as they will reduce the inflammatory chemicals that cause your skin and heart to age. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids include flaxseed oil, nuts, hemp oil, tuna and salmon. It is also important to reduce your intake of processed foods which can lead to breakouts.

Daily Recipe: Cast-Iron Roast Chicken With Crispy Potatoes


Today, I would like to introduce a wonderful recipe called Cast-Iron Roast Chicken With Crispy Potatoes.

Size matters. This isn’t the time for a mammoth Oven Stuffer, nor do we want some petite poussin—a 3½–4-lb. bird has the proportions we’re after. When the breasts are roasted to perfection, all that dark meat is on-the-nose-done too.

Ingredients:

4 SERVINGS

  • 1 3½–4-pound whole chicken.

  • Kosher salt.

  • 1½ pounds russet potatoes, scrubbed, thinly sliced crosswise.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted.

  • 1 tablespoon thyme leaves.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided.

  • Freshly ground black pepper.

Directions:

Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season generously with salt, inside and out. (We use 1 tsp. Diamond Crystal or ½ tsp. Morton kosher salt per lb.) Tie legs together with kitchen twine. Let sit 1 hour to allow salt to penetrate, or chill, uncovered, up to 1 day ahead.

Place a rack in upper third of oven and set a 12″ cast-iron skillet or 3-qt. enameled cast-iron baking dish on rack. Preheat oven to 425°.

Meanwhile, toss potatoes, butter, thyme, and 1 Tbsp. oil in a large bowl to coat; season with salt and pepper.

Once oven reaches temperature, pat chicken dry with paper towels and lightly coat with half of remaining oil; sprinkle with dry rub, if using. Drizzle remaining oil into hot skillet (this helps keep the chicken from sticking and tearing the skin). Place chicken in the center of skillet and arrange potatoes around. Roast until potatoes are golden brown and crisp and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of breasts registers 155°, 50–60 minutes (temperature will climb to 165° as chicken rests). Let chicken rest in skillet at least 20 minutes and up to 45 minutes.

Transfer chicken to a cutting board and carve. Serve with potatoes.

Daily Recipe: Tomato Burrata Bites


Today, I would like to introduce a wonderful recipe called Tomato Burrata Bites.

No-cook finger food at its finest! Sweet Campari tomatoes are stuffed with rich, creamy burrata and finished with fresh basil.

Ingredients:

16 Campari tomatoes

Flaky sea salt and freshly ground pepper

1 ball (8 ounces) burrata cheese

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Small fresh basil leaves, for serving

Directions:

Trim the base of each tomato so they sit flat. Using a serrated knife, slice off top 1/4 inch of each tomato. Scoop out seeds and pulp, then place hollowed-out shells upside-down on a paper-towel-lined plate or baking sheet to drain, about 5 minutes.

Turn tomatoes upright, and season with salt. Open burrata and pour creamy interior into a bowl. Chop firm exterior into 1/2-inch pieces, then stuff one piece in the bottom of each tomato. Divide creamy center among tomatoes (about 1 teaspoon each). Drizzle tomatoes with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and garnish with basil. Serve immediately.

Daily Recipe: Gordon’s Breakfast Cocktail


Today, I would like to introduce a wonderful recipe called Gordon’s Breakfast Cocktail.
A variation on one of Petraske’s signature cocktails, it packs the perfect punch for Sunday brunch.

Ingredients:

2 oz. London dry gin

6 lime wedges

¾ oz. simple syrup (see recipe)

3 thin cucumber slices

4 dashes Cholula hot sauce

2 dashes Worcestershire sauce

Pinch kosher salt

Pinch freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Combine all ingredients except the salt and pepper in a cocktail shaker. Add 1 cup of cracked ice and shake vigorously until the drink is sufficiently chilled. Pour into a chilled rocks glass and finish with a pinch each of salt and freshly ground pepper.

Simple syrup: Combine ½ cup granulated sugar and ½ cup filtered water and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Do not boil, as many recipes instruct, as that would cause some of the liquid to evaporate and skew your water content when making cocktails. Cover and refrigerate up to 4 days.

Effect of lime on sperm


We talk so much about different fruit and vegetables and female fertility associated with eating this or that product, but we often forget about men and their health issues. Let us talk about the effect of lime on sperm and male fertility. Is lime good for men or not? Is it necessary to drink lime juice every day or avoid taking it when you have a particular dream such as pregnancy of your wife?

Lime is citrus. This fruit is nearly as popular as lemon. People make fresh lime juice, add lime slices to their drinks and meals.

Usually, this is a round fruit of yellow or green colors. It is a valuable product for medicine and cosmetic industry. Raw fruit is rich in vitamin C and citric acid. It has nearly 90 percent of water and about 10 percent of carbohydrates. It is nearly free of fat and has less than 1 percent of protein.

Lime has both benefits and disadvantages for women and men. We would like to discuss these pros and cons and help you make your decision whether to consume lime or not.

Benefits of lime

Lime does have a big list of advantages. It can be good for your health because of its amazing medical properties that are good for skin, weight, your inner systems, etc.

Here is the list of the main benefits of lime you can enjoy as a man:

Scurvy treatment thanks to a big amount of vitamin C contained in the fruit. Skin health and protection from different skin infections thanks to antioxidants contained in lime. Better digestion thanks to acidity (lime is rich in it.)Possibility of weight loss thanks to citric acid (it can help you burn body fat.)Constipation relief thanks to the ability of lime acids to clean your tract. Diabetes management thanks to dietary fiber present in lime. Urinary problems treatment which is great for men who are 40 years old or older.

Besides, drinking a glass of lime juice a day can be good for your heart, arthritis treatment, eyes, gums, etc.

Effect of lime on male fertility

Some women believe that drinking lime juice can be a nice way to prevent pregnancy. Scientists do say that there are anti-infertility properties in lime and this fact makes many communities in Nigeria and across Africa believe that lime can become their personal herb in love affairs.

You have read that lime can help treat male urinary disorder. It really has enough potassium to help the male body get rid of bad substances stored in their kidneys. It can also remove precipitates and excess calcium stored in urinary bladder and tract. This is how lime juice or raw fruit can become your personal ‘urinary’ doctor.

What do we know about the effect of lime on sperm? It is believed that too much lime acid can actually kill the male sperm cells and this is why women cannot become pregnant when they and their partners start consuming lime on a regular basis.

In other words, people think that it is better to avoid drinking lime juice or consuming lime if you are planning a baby or your wife is already expecting a child.

The effect of lime on male fertility can be amazing or unpleasant. Everything depends on the amounts of lime consumed by a man. Since lime is rich in vitamin C, it can be good for boosting and improving the male fertility. At the same time, too much of this fruit can hurt the sperm cells and lead to harmful effect.

Disadvantages of lime

It is better to consume an average amount of lime and never exceed and take too much of this fruit rich in acids. Still, people with some diseases and medical problems should always consult a doctor before eating lime or drinking lime juice. You might be allergic to this fruit or experience other issues. It can also be unsafe to apply lime oil right to your skin if it is too sensitive.

You can see that lime can be both good and bad for your health, male fertility, and sperm cells. There are many advantages and some disadvantages of consuming the fresh lime juice or adding lime to your everyday meals. However, you should not try to cure infertility with lime by yourself. Always talk to your doctor before taking a decision.

Simple lip care tips everyone needs to know


Healthy lips are a sign of a healthy person and no matter how much lipstick you apply, so long as your lips are not healthy it will still show. And let’s face it, chapped lips are a big no-no.

Because the skin on our lips is much thinner than any other part on the body, it is more prone to cracking and chapping. It is thus important to practice good care for our lips to achieve soft lips that not only look good but work well with your lipstick.

Here are eight simple lip care tips that you need in your life for a perfect pout

Have a healthy diet plan

The type of diet you have will reflect directly on the condition of your lips. Having a good diet with vitamins and other nutrients is essential for beautiful healthy lips.

Stay hydrated

Your lips need to stay hydrated from the inside so as to look good on the outside which means drinking lots of water.

Do not lick or touch your lips

Lips do not have a natural protectant on them so each time you touch them you are getting them infected with bacteria. While licking your lips may feel like you are helping moisturize them, it is actually harmful. When the saliva evaporates it leaves the lips even drier. The enzymes in saliva are also too harsh on the delicate lips.

Massage your lips

Massaging your lips for about five minutes every day will help increase blood circulation to the lips. Use some nourishing oils to do this. Good blood circulation means that the lips will get the nutrients that they need.

Hydrate your lips overnight

It is easy to tell when your lips are dry when you are awake but you cannot tell this when you are asleep. Because the air around us dries up our lips when we are sleeping, it is important to apply either petroleum jelly or a hydrating lip cream before you sleep. For natural options you can use ghee, raw milk or even cream.

Scrub your lips

It is important to scrub your lips so as to remove the dead skin cells and avoid any lip infections. For this you can use a mild scrub for lips that you can buy at a beauty shop. Alternatively you can make your own by using some sugar and honey.

Use lipstick when going out

This will come as a shocker but lipsticks are actually good for your lips. Applying some before you step out will help protect them from the sun, dirt, dry air and other factors.

Always remove makeup

Before you sleep, ensure to always remove all traces of makeup from your lips. Do this using a damp cotton ball to wipe them clean. This will enable your lips to breathe.
