Weight – Maintain it, Don’t Gain!

Maintaining a healthy weight is important for health. In addition to lowering the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure, it can also lower the risk of many different cancers.

Move more, eat less. Turning off the television and skipping the sugary drinks are two ways to get started.

Your weight, your waist size, and the amount of weight gained since your mid-20s can have serious health implications. These factors can strongly influence your chances of developing the following diseases and conditions:

  • Cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Gallstones
  • Asthma
  • Cataracts
  • Infertility
  • Snoring
  • Sleep apnea

If your weight is in the healthy range and isn’t more than 10 pounds over what you weighed when you turned 21, focus on maintaining that weight by watching what you eat and exercising.

Because most adults between the ages of 18 and 49 gain 1-2 pounds each year, stopping and preventing weight gain should be a priority. Gaining weight as you age increases the chances of developing one or more chronic diseases.

Middle-aged women and men who gained 11 to 22 pounds after age 20 were up to three times more likely to develop heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and gallstones than those who gained five pounds or fewer.

Those who gained more than 22 pounds had an even larger risk of developing these diseases.

Another analysis found that adult weight gain – even after menopause – can increase the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer.

Encouragingly, for women who had never used hormone replacement therapy, losing weight after menopause – and keeping it off – cut their risk of post-menopausal breast cancer in half.

Does Being Overweight Reduce Mortality?

You may have seen news coverage of a study claiming that being overweight and obese may reduce mortality but a panel of experts discussed why the general public should not rely on these flawed study findings.

The main flaw of this study is that the normal weight group, which showed an increased mortality risk compared to the overweight group, included more heavy smokers, patients with cancer or other diseases that cause weight loss, and elderly people suffering from frailty. There was no distinction made between these unhealthy normal weight people and lean healthy individuals. The overweight and obese groups did appear to have a lower mortality rate than this mix of healthy and very unhealthy normal weighted individuals, and this flaw led to false conclusions that overweight and grade 1 obesity carry no risk and may offer reduced mortality.

What Causes Weight Gain? 

  1. Diet: The quantity and quality of food in your diet has a strong impact on weight.
  2. Genes: Some people are genetically predisposed to gain weight more easily than others or to store fat around the midsection.

Genes do not have to become destiny, however, and studies suggest that eating a healthy diet, staying active, and avoiding unhealthy habits like drinking soda can prevent the genetic predisposition to risk for obesity.

  1. Physical inactivity: Exercising has a host of health benefits, including reducing the chances of developing heart disease, some types of cancer, and other chronic diseases. Physical activity is a key element of weight control and health.
  2. Sleep: Research suggests that there’s a link between how much people sleep and how much they weigh. In general, children and adults who get too little sleep tend to weigh more than those who get enough sleep.

For example, in one Study researchers followed roughly 60,000 women for 16 years. At the start of the study, all of the women were healthy, and none were obese; 16 years later, women who slept 5 hours or less per night had a 15 percent higher risk of becoming obese, compared to women who slept 7 hours per night. Short sleepers also had 30 percent higher risk of gaining 30 pounds over the course of the study, compared to women who got 7 hours of sleep per night.

There are several possible ways that sleep deprivation could increase the chances of becoming obese.

  • Sleep-deprived people may be too tired to exercise, decreasing the “calories burned” side of the weight-change equation.
  • People who don’t get enough sleep may take in more calories than those who do, simply because they are awake longer and have more opportunities to eat.
  • Lack of sleep also disrupts the balance of key hormones that control appetite, so sleep-deprived people may be hungrier than those who get enough rest each night.

What You Can Do?

Maintaining a healthy weight is not always easy. The key to success is making changes in daily eating and physical activity habits that can be maintained over one’s lifetime.

Our weight is a result of the combination of the energy one takes in (through foods and beverages) and the energy their body uses (through engaging in physical activity). To lose weight, an individual needs to use more calories than they  consume. To maintain a healthy weight, one needs to balance the calories they use with those they take in. Some ways to create a caloric deficit are:

  • Spend less time in sedentary activities (e.g., watching television, internet surfing)
  • Engage in daily physical activities (e.g., walking, bicycling, gardening, housework)
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables and reduce food portion sizes.

An interesting study has highlighted gender difference amongst people trying to reach their ideal body weight. According to a study, women tend to consider ideal weight for their height and age lesser than what is medically recommended. This forces them to resort to yo-yo diets to achieve their target. On the other hand, men tend to lean towards the higher range, and to achieve that they work on building more muscle through supplements or a high protein diet.

You can get your ideal body weight that is specific to your age, body type and lifestyle without having to starve yourself by following the balanced healthy diet and regular workout.

What beauty means to us?

Scientists are still trying to figure out what beauty means to people and to figure out what makes things and people beautiful. In some ways, it’s like asking whether your vision of “red” is the same as someone else’s — there’s just no way to know for sure.

Still, there’s plenty to explore in neuroscience and psychology when it comes to what people find beautiful, to what extent people see beauty in themselves, and what role beauty plays in society.


Beauty and the brain

Regardless of culture, there appear to be certain patterns of brain activity associated with viewing something you find beautiful.

The only factor common to all that people find beautiful in art and music is activity in the brain’s medial orbital frontal cortex, part of the reward and pleasure center of the brain.

There are cultural trends in what in art and music people find beautiful — for instance, there’s a Japanese preference for asymmetry, compared to a Western ideal of symmetry. This does not apply to faces, however, as it seems that universally people prefer symmetrical faces.


It’s also not well understood why people adapt to certain objects of beauty after many exposures, but not others. For instance, you might be bored of a pop song after a few listens, but listen to an opera dozens of times, over a period of years, and still feel emotional about it. Or perhaps there’s a painting that you’ve always admired, whereas another painting loses its splendor after a few viewings.

That makes sense, since we see every single blemish in ourselves, whereas there are plenty of people we consider beautiful to whom we don’t get close enough to examine all the little flaws. Perception of beauty may weaken when we do start to recognize those defects.

Brain imaging has been done with facial beauty, too. Self-evaluation of one’s own facial attractiveness may be related to self-esteem, based on common patterns of brain activity.

Beauty in the face

When it comes to facial attractiveness, there are reasons to believe that specific features and biologically based factors guide our assessment of beauty.


Faces that are more symmetrical and average-looking tend to be rated as more attractive in scientific studies. Symmetry in particular has been studied extensively, not only in the Western World but also in hunter-gatherer cultures removed from mainstream media. The Hadza of Tanzania, a remote group of hunter-gatherers, showed a stronger preference for symmetry than people in the United Kingdom. Men who were more often deemed good hunters especially liked symmetry in female faces. And Hadza women like symmetry in men’s faces even more when they were pregnant or nursing, periods when they may be extra cautious about foods and disease harmful to a child.

In fact, even babies respond more positively to attractive, symmetrical faces. But babies appear to respond more to faces deemed attractive than those that are purely symmetrical, suggesting there’s something else going on.

There are theories that specific proportions are the most naturally beautiful, with ratios of length and width being important.


And with the help of computers, it has become apparent that morphing a lot of faces together typically produces an end product that is highly attractive. The reasoning goes that this blending gets closer to the face “prototype” that may underline attractiveness — the ultimate idea of a face is the most average one.

So it may be that babies are drawn to faces that are most like the most basic concept of a face — that is, they are average.

Why should that matter? The theory goes that symmetrical features may be markers of genetic quality. Human ancestors evolved to find mates that would pass on good genes to offspring, so they would naturally be repelled by traits that would be detrimental to survival or indicators of poor health.

One study found that people with asymmetrical faces tended to come from more difficult and deprived childhoods than those with more symmetrical features. It appears that adversity in childhood is associated with facial features that are not perfectly aligned and matching, although there’s no proof that one of these phenomena causes the other.

And the kind of man that women are attracted to can vary according to phases of the ovulation cycle. Studies showed that during periods of high fertility, women are more drawn to more rugged, dominant-looking men. Subconsciously they may be perceiving beauty in accordance with evolutionary forces, since dominance can indicate genetic fitness. Incidentally, women also buy sexier clothes when they are most fertile.

A recent study found that women are most attracted to men with the strongest immune systems, which were associated with higher testosterone levels. But that was complicated in men who had higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol, suggesting that women may find stressed-out men less attractive.

Beauty also plays a role in friendship. Research has shown that women tend to have friends of similar attractiveness. These scientists found that, both in terms of one’s own perceptions of beauty and that of independent judges, a woman’s attractiveness correlates well with her friends’ attractiveness. And, if you’re a woman who’s the less attractive one in a friendship pair, you’re also more likely to view your more attractive friend as a mating rival. But this is a small study, and more research should be done to back up these conclusions.


Beauty in yourself

Sometimes people hook their self-worth on their appearance, tying beauty to their perception of themselves. We compare how we think we look to how other people look, and we make a decision about whether we’re much better or much worse.

That comparison can have negative or positive emotional and psychological consequences.

There’s scientific evidence to suggest that ideas about the importance of one’s own beauty get formulated in childhood. Parents give a certain level of praise to their children for their appearance, vs. the amount of effort they put into tasks and the activities they’re good at. Little girls in child beauty contests, for instance, receive the feedback that their appearance is highly valued. You can imagine that sets the stage for people to think about themselves in terms of appearance or abilities.

And when it comes to assessing beauty, many people are their own worst critics. Sometimes there’s a particular body part that becomes a focus of self-loathing.

It’s still socially unacceptable to say things to others that we would say to ourselves. We don’t filter our judgments of ourselves in the same way that we filter judgments of others.


When taken to the extreme, obsession over a particular aspect of one’s appearance has a psychiatric diagnosis: body dysmorphic disorder. It’s the reason some people get dozens of plastic surgeries, but are never satisfied with the outcomes.

On the flip side, you can view your body as a source of power — for instance, after running a first 5 kilometer race or even marathon, some people feel proud of what their bodies can do.

Beauty as power

Studies have shown that people who are perceived as being more attractive also appear more competent and successful. There’s presumably a strong cultural and learned dimension to all of these effects.

Other research has shown that physical attractiveness can also influence salary.

The legal system may even take beauty into account – a variety of studies have found effects suggesting that attractiveness helps when it comes to verdicts and sentencing. It may be that attractive people are less likely to commit crimes as serious as unattractive people, or that there is a societal view that pretty people are “good” and wouldn’t do bad things.


Or we can divide perception of beauty into three things: contributing factors from genetics, grooming and how people reacted to your appearance in early life. Early experiences of being the apple of your mother or father’s eye goes a very long way about how you feel about your own looks. But if your parent became more critical of you when you became less “cute,” you might feel less attractive.

There must be something more than just other peoples’ good favor for looks going on, since there are professional models with low self-image.


For models, there are unrealistic expectations of beauty all around — not only in magazines and television. The ones who do well are those who don’t assume they have to be perfect to be beautiful.

There’s a process that everyone goes through at some point, no matter how much or little you value your looks. The good looks of youth change, and no longer match your vision of yourself. But when you’re in a marriage or long-term partnership, you’re not actively having to worry about being beautiful to attract a new mate.

Why do women wear makeup?

From the soot-rimmed eyes of the ancient Egyptians to the lead paint worn by the Elizabethans, women and girls have experimented with cosmetics throughout history. Indeed, according to the Roman playwright Plautus, “a woman without paint is like food without salt”. Shakespeare’s Hamlet was less keen but just as rude, telling Ophelia: “I’ve heard all about you women and your cosmetics too. God gives you one face, but you paint another on top of it…”.

photo-1530999651725-59e0e1761b3aSo is makeup necessary seasoning, a conniving ploy by manipulative sexpots, or neither? Ask a group of women why they wear makeup and you’ll receive myriad responses. Some will say it makes them feel more confident, that they don’t feel completely “done” without it; others will say they love experimenting with looks and colours as a way of expressing themselves, that there’s a fun, theatrical element to face paint that allows them to channel different personalities and aesthetics.

But just as there are women and girls who wear makeup completely for themselves, there are those who wear makeup for the perceived benefit of others, or who feel as though they are unacceptable without it. Makeup can be a mask you hide behind that gets you ready to face the world, or something you deploy as a weapon – to attract a partner, to intimidate, shock and amaze. It is used as part of religious or cultural rituals, or to align yourself with a subculture. It can mask your insecurities or be used to enhance the bits you love the most.

photo-1534420508552-1acd54331e78Makeup is so ubiquitous in our society that for a woman to go without it has become, in some cases, a statement – the “no makeup selfie” being a case in point. Makeup is especilly important for female celebrities that you can find on covers of many fashion magazines. Some will say there’s a fun, theatrical element to face paint that allows them to channel different personalities and aesthetics.

photo-1525641042653-e0caa0dffdd1Women receive messages from an early age that encourage us to believe that one of our primary functions is to be decorative and therefore appealing to men. Go into any newsagent and you’ll see little girls’ magazines that come with free gifts of lipgloss and nail varnish. Parents buy their daughters strange, disembodied dolls’ heads to practise on. The Disney princesses so many little girls model themselves on wear eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow, and have perfectly plucked eyebrows. Considering the extent to which makeup is viewed as a process of adornment used for attracting a mate, to foist it upon girls so young is arguably more than a little creepy.

photo-1531475925016-6d33cb7c8344Evolutionary psychologists have it that, as with so many things, makeup comes down to sex. Women tend to have darker eyes and lips than men, and makeup enhances those sex differences. Furthermore, the desirable qualities a man looks for in a woman – largely related to reproductive fitness – are said to be amplified by makeup. Beauty ideals vary from culture to culture, but there are some universal markers of attractiveness. Facial symmetry and an even skin tone imply good health, while youthfulness denotes fertility. Plump lips and flushed cheeks, meanwhile, are signs of sexual arousal, so your scarlet lipstick and pink blusher might just be giving that random man in the bar the subconscious signal that you’re ready for a night of passion.

photo-1509251687257-cf2f5de0360aCosmetics companies often rely on women’s insecurities – inculcated through years of exposure to images of physical perfection in mainstream media – in order to sell products, operating on the basis of “maybe she’s born with it, but probably not, so buy this concealer”. Its function as a means for covering up unwanted flaws or “unsightly” blemishes is hammered into us again and again. Many women spend hundreds of pounds each year on cosmetics, and as many minutes worrying about the way we look.

When the vision of beauty you are presented with is largely homogeneous, it’s only natural that you might resort to makeup as an attempt to “blend in” or to “pass”. But, as often with trappings of femininity, you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place. Studies repeatedly tell us that men are more attracted to women who wear makeup.


Perhaps, then, when it comes to makeup, we are our own worst enemies, believing that the world wants to see us in a certain way when in actual fact we’re fine the way we are. Why do women wear makeup? You could say it’s a pinch of patriarchy, a dusting of sex, a smattering of fun, and a whole, caked-on layer of misplaced insecurity.

Beauty and success

Ah the beautiful woman. We all love to look at her, talk about her, wonder about her. She’s got it all, right? The great job, beautiful friends, a date every night, men falling over themselves to be noticed and doors being opened for her — both literally and figuratively.


Okay, let’s face it. When we meet someone new a first impression is first about looks; only later do things such as personality, brains and character start to take on meaning. (A side note about beauty is that weight isn’t much of a factor, unless the person is morbidly obese or anorexically skinny. The key to perceived beauty is the face). It’s also found that beauty is connected with success – well, at least financial success.


Companies that place a premium on hiring very attractive people had on average higher revenues than similar companies which did not. The public clearly rewards businesses with the beautiful faces. Most of people, regardless of their professed attitudes, prefer as customers to buy from better-looking salespeople, as jurors to listen to better-looking attorneys, as voters to be led by better-looking politicians, as students to learn from better-looking professors.


Beautiful women have it even better and get away with things ordinary people can’t. Try talking an officer out of a ticket, or walking in without a reservation and getting a table at that hot new restaurant or talking that male co-worker into helping you move some furniture. Beauty does make a difference. Beautiful women get more smiles, more handsome lovers and better treatment, and perhaps they expect it. Sometimes the beautiful woman has a bigger-than-life persona; higher than normal self esteem coupled with the feeling that she is special and deserves the best can become a self fulfilling prophecy.


The cycle is easy to see. The beautiful woman, constantly fawned upon, catered to, approached and presented with numerous options starts to see this as the norm. This sets up a powerful self image and expectations for the best. She starts expecting others to fawn, and expects things to be handed to her on a silver platter — a princess syndrome, of sorts. She is the center of attention, and everyone else is of little importance. The power of positive thinking at work.

So, it’s all good or not?

is the bomb and those lucky enough to have it are the equivalent of genetic lottery winners. Nope, all that glitters is not……..beautiful. As with most things, there’s a downside. Some would even say a dark side to beauty. How some beautiful women view themselves can border on obsessive. They cherish their looks and play them to the hilt, but if they find a blemish, a wrinkle or a flaw, it can throw them into a panic. It can even have them inquiring around for a good plastic surgeon, new dietician or workout guru.


Low self esteem is more common in beautiful women than you ould expect. Some just don’t believe they are attractive. They have a distorted self image and don’t believe others who tell them how stunning they are. Thus in their mind everyone is a “liar” and not to be trusted. Some are dependent on the first impression reaction of others to define who they are, ie someone who has it all because of her beauty. So, she starts to see herself as someone with no talent, no intellect — no redeeming qualities other than her looks.

photo-1488751045188-3c55bbf9a3faThen there are the beauties that are truly shy, or to protect themselves from constant harassment, they withdraw. Unfortunately, they can come across as aloof, stuck up, snooty and even arrogant. If we take the time to get to know her instead of condemn her, we might find out she’s really kind, conscientious, caring… and perhaps just a little bit shy. It’s almost as if we’re subconsciously — or for some maybe even consciously — looking for a reason to treat her as less than a person.

If she’s beautiful, a new study says, there is often a hidden selfish streak. She’s lucky and she knows it, and she will consciously — or subconsciously — use her looks to her advantage any way she can.

Are beautiful women taken seriously? Research has shown that when women and men look at gorgeous women’s success, they immediately tend to credit their success to their looks, and not any talents or brains they may possess. Actually, beauty has both positive and negative effects on us. Chances are she’ll be taken more seriously by a male, but not by much. If she’s being scrutinized and considered by other women, then the highly attractive woman is at a big disadvantage.

Probably the most difficult thing a beautiful woman has to deal with is social rejection. When it comes to members of her own sex she is often an outcast. Whether it’s true or not, other women perceive the beauty as a threat to steal their man away. They may not trust their spouse/boyfriend/lover in the presence of such beauty, and simply prefer to reject her instead.


Meanwhile the men think what the heck, what chance do I have with a woman like that? All too often folks think she has it all, and she must already be taken. Plus, what chance would the average man have anyway? She can have anyone she wants, someone with money, fame and looks. In essence, the men are intimidated and prefer to stare from afar rather than approach.

Another study shows it isn’t cheap to be a beautiful woman. They spend about one third of their income on maintaining those good looks. I’m all for taking care of yourself and trying to look your best. But, many of these women are spending money they don’t have on creams, diets, products and cosmetic surgery. High fashion magazines feel they need to “Photoshop” even the most gorgeous of models, so does that put even more pressure on the beautiful woman to keep up appearances? After all, in her mind that may be all she has going for her, thus money is no object when it buys self esteem.


So, there is good and bad with beauty and the real question is what exactly determines which woman will parlay it into success and which will succumb to the dark side? The answer is quite simple. Beauty is an asset, just like physical prowess, charisma, brains or emotional intelligence. The key with any gift is in the way that you use it. It doesn’t define you as a person. Rather, it’s an asset to be used judiciously and with an understanding of how it is just a small part of who you are. Those that get this will do well; others that don’t, not so much.


As with most things beauty can be a blessing, but it can also be a curse. Very often beautiful women like to say that they are intrigued by the way in which physical appearance can often direct a person’s life; things happen differently for a beautiful woman than for a plain one. Different yes, but not necessarily better. So, the next time you see a stunningly beautiful woman,…. enjoy the view, but don’t judge her because she’s beautiful.

Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it … As you awaken to your divine nature, you’ll begin to appreciate beauty in everything you see, touch, and experience !

For most women, makeup is an important tool in their everyday beauty arsenal. From eyeliners, to lipsticks, to blushers — there’s an enormous number of makeup products that can help make us feel better about ourselves. We use makeup to enhance or change the way we look, hide our imperfections, and feel more confident.


What is makeup?

But what exactly is makeup? This is a cosmetic device we use to add color or to prettify our faces. We can also use makeup on different parts of our body (such as legs and arms) to enhance or contour. There are hundreds of makeup brands now available in the market, each item having a specific use. Color palettes have been made available to fit specific skin types. In fact, there are also makeup that cater to specific ages.

Why do people put on makeup?

Makeup experts say that there are varying reasons why people put on makeup. Some of us go for the more natural look, while others want to play with every color of the rainbow. Whatever the reasons may be, there are four general reasons as to why we have come to depend on makeup:

We are able to hide our flaws while enhancing our prettier features. We want to hide the imperfections we’ve accumulated over time and through exposure to the outside world’s harsh elements. We may also have dark circles under the eyes because of stress. Makeup hides these so-called flaws and makes us look fresh. We may even choose to enhance a certain feature to feel good or to let others see our stronger features.

We use makeup for us. We want to feel good and confident either by receiving compliments or simply knowing that we look better. It gives us that extra “oomph” we need, especially on days when we’re particularly feeling unattractive.

We feel like artists painting on a blank canvas with the ability to create something extremely beautiful. Putting on makeup is an art form. I personally feel like Monet when putting on foundation and playing with different color palettes to enhance my eyes. It also gives me that certain excitement because the outcome can differ every single time.

It’s a way for us to express the way we feel. If I want to feel sexy and sultry, I go for the red hues and darker tints. If I want to feel like a dainty princess, I go for pink and the lighter shades. If I simply want to look well put-together, I go for tones that match my skin. I think almost every woman can agree with me on this: makeup is a way to set the mood we’ll have for the rest of the day.

Makeup History and Trivia

Makeup goes way way back — even way before the Elizabethan era when women used powder to whiten their faces and rouge to darken their lips. In fact, the ancient Egyptians are known to have first used the world’s first set of cosmetics. The women used burnt matches to darken their eyes. Back then, berries weren’t just for eating as well. These fruits were quite important in staining their lips.

However, did you know that it is believed that so vain were the women back then that they even resorted to using men’s urine to lighten their freckles and swallowing ox blood to better their complexions? How things have changed because these misguided beliefs have long been debunked and the creation of makeup nowadays involves the use of scientific studies and experiments before making anything available to the public.

Kinds of Makeup

As mentioned previously, we now have hundreds of makeup brands to choose from. We can go for the more affordable brands such as Maybelline or Revlon, to the pricier ones such as La Prairie and Laura Mercier, just to name a few. In all honesty, we can have a mix of both worlds. Hey, I even have brands that I picked out from a corner drugstore, and I’ve been more than happy with them. As long as they serve their purpose, and they serve us well, then these buys are just as good.


This may not be what others notice, but the base makes applying makeup easier. It preps your skin and pores for the products you’ll be using. The result is flawless skin that glows from within.

  • Oil removing paper – This helps in removing the natural grease we produce. It’s actually more difficult to apply makeup when there’s gunk present as the foundation tends to slide off or clump up once we apply some on our skin.
  • Sunscreen – This is a must, even without makeup. With the sun’s dangerous UV rays, we can’t go out without providing a proper shield to our skin.
  • Moisturizer – The good news is that some moisturizer brands come with sunscreen. Some of the best brands out in the market now are Neutrogena, La Mer, Aveeno, and Clinique. All we need is a dollop on our fingertips so that our skin doesn’t become too oily.

Face Cover or Foundation

After putting the base, makeup starts with making the skin flawless. We need to do this before putting any other makeup on. Here are just some of the things we can use to achieve that unblemished look:

  • Primer – This lotion-based formula prepares the skin for makeup. It’s similar to glue, as it binds the different ingredients we apply on our skin. More importantly, it allows us to apply liquid or powdered makeup more evenly.
  • Foundation – Allows for medium or full coverage. The market has a variety of foundations to choose from, depending on your personal skin type. This creates the canvass we can work on during the makeup process.
  • Concealer – This is the ultimate weapon to cover those imperfections. Unlike the foundation that we can apply liberally, concealers should be placed only in specific areas, particularly where those blemishes are.

Eyes and Eyebrows


After applying the foundation, norm dictates to start applying eye makeup first before doing your other facial features. It’s easier to make corrections from top to bottom, and it’s best to start with the eyes. To enhance the windows to our souls, we have the mascara, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, and eyeshadow. We can use a mix of any of these tools for our eyes. Just like any other makeup tool, these come in a variety of colors, depending on your mood and the occasion. Here are the uses of the following:

  • Mascara – Adds volume and length to the lashes.
  • Eyebrow Liner – Allows us to step up our brow game by adding shape and texture to an otherwise monotone set of brows.
  • Eyeliner – Adds drama to the eyes. All you need to do is apply on the lids and the lash lines.
  • Eyeshadow – You can create a color combination that allows you to express the first thing people look at when they see your face – your eyes.

Face Color

Once the blemishes are out of the way, we can now work on contours and colors. Some of the tools we use for face color are:

  • Blushers and Bronzers – Whether we want a subtle blush or a pop of color, these two go hand in hand on our face. We can play on the lighting and enhance our cheekbones and face contours with just a sweep of the brush.
  • Contours and Highlights – Highlights give us an extra glow, while contours enhance the dimension of our face.



Lip colors give that extra boost to what’s already a beautiful look. Like everything else, we can go subtle or vampy, depending on our current mood. There are a few tools that we need to cap off our effort:

  • Lip Liner – This is the first step to enhancing our lips. We can go from partial to full coverage. Liners serve as the foundation before putting on the lipstick or lip gloss.
  • Lipstick or Lip Gloss – There are perfect color complements for every skin tone. 

Makeup Trends

Just like fashion, makeup trends change every year. For instance, it’s all about the well-defined brows nowadays. Several years back, we were all trying to go for brows that were thin and spaced far apart. Well, not any more.

Here’s what’s trending this year:

  • Lips – It was all about the matte finish. Now, a lip gloss is perfect for that everyday go-to look. For savvier occasions, makeup experts like to add glitter on the lips or go for the hombre look. Who would have thought that the upper and lower lips could have different shades?
  • Skin – Gone are the baking and strobing days. Now, it’s more about looking natural and healthy. Out in the market are foundations with more subtle hues and tints because what’s more important is letting our skin breathe.
  • Cheeks – Blushers can now be used to highlight even the eye area. This is what they call the blush bomb. From the cheeks, we can now boldly sweep the color upwards to the side of the forehead.
  • Eyes – When it comes to eye makeup, pink is the new black. This can be treated as a neutral color that’s subtle yet dramatic. For dressier occasions that require color, makeup manufacturers are now looking into metallic shades more than any other color. As for eyeliners, liquid liners are still the rage. However, the shinier it is, the better it will be. Think vinyl finish.
  • Setting spray – This caps off the whole routine. Setting sprays were designed to hold the makeup longer so that we no longer see smears and smudges as the day progresses. These are perfect for those long days, as we no longer have to constantly check the mirror to see if we still look as pristine as we did at the start.


There are also other optional trends that makeup enthusiasts swear by. These may not be considered must-haves, but if we want that professional look without having to shell out hundreds of dollars every time, here are some of the items you may want to consider:

  • Airbrush makeup – Airbrushes are the rage nowadays. No longer are these gadgets available in just the beauty salons. Many have added this to their arsenal and have their very own spray in their home makeup counter. The idea is to plug the spray and hold the nozzle at least six inches away. This should give the “just applied” impression on the skin and makes us look fresh and flawless. That’s because the spray can cover every inch of the face evenly.
  • Mineral makeup – Some makeup experts swear by mineral makeup and have totally switched because mineral makeup isn’t just making the skin healthier, it’s known to give better coverage. However, there are also naysayers. Some mineral makeup brands tend to clump in fine lines. It’s especially more difficult to use mineral makeup for darker toned women.

Makeup Do’s and Don’ts

Now that we’ve all gotten tips on how to apply makeup and what the trends are, we should also familiarize ourselves with basic care tips. These are things we put on our skin; hence, we need to make sure that not only are they effective, but safe as well.

Before we start with the don’ts, we need to familiarize ourselves with some makeup tips that professionals follow to:

  • Should you prefer to have both liquid and powder foundation, you need to start with the liquid. The powder dusting that comes at the end mattes the face and makes our skin look like velvet. We can use our fingers for complete coverage, then a big brush for that finishing touch.
  • As mentioned earlier, we should start with the eye makeup and work our way down. It’s easier to brush off the remnants that fall off this way. It also helps to get those half-moon shaped cotton pads to avoid racoon eyes. All we need to do is put this just below the eyelid when we apply powder.
  • If we do decide to use mascara, we can have longer lashes when we use the zigzag motion. All we need to do is shake our hand side to side as we brush past the upper lashes, then the lower ones.
  • For pimples and dark spots, it’s better to use a thin brush to apply the concealer. The bristles work at getting inside every crevice so that those skin imperfections disappear.
  • We need to apply bronzer on the sides of our face, neck, and just below our chin to add contour.
  • For the blusher, we need to dust the apple of our cheeks. It helps to smile as we slightly sweep the brush upwards.
  • Lipstick is best applied when we work from the center to the outer portions of our lips. Then, we can blot with a tissue for that better staying power.


Apart from knowing how to apply makeup, we also need to be responsible makeup users. Proper care is a must. Think about this: we apply these products on our face — one of the most sensitive areas of our body; hence, we need to know the following:

  • We should take note of the expiry dates:
    • 3 months:  Mascara;
    • 6 months to 1 year:  Foundation, concealer, blusher, and eyeshadow;
    • 1 year:  Lipstick, moisturizer;
    • 2 years:  lip liner and pencil.
  • We need to keep our cosmetic collection in a dry area and away from sunlight.
  • We must never share brushes.
  • We should throw away makeup if the smell has changed.
  • Brushes and sponges should be cleaned at least twice a month. We can use baby soap or a gentle skin cleaner when doing so.
  • We must always look at the list of ingredients in any makeup or skincare product. Experts from the FDA warns us against the use of the following:
  • Parabens – These have been linked to breast cancer.
  • Retinol in any form – These are believed to turn carcinogenic when exposed to sunlight.
  • Hydroquinone – This skin-bleaching component can cause dark lesions when exposed to the sun.
  • We need to make sure to remove makeup before bed. Experts swear by steam before applying baby wipes on our skin. As for eye makeup, we can opt for removers that are intended for this specific use because oil-based products can often blur our vision. Lastly, we must remove any residue by capping off the routine with water, facial wash, and toner.

after all…

When we say that something is beautiful:

  • What you love is always beautiful…
  • Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old;
  • Beauty is whatever gives joy;
  • Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child and the smiling faces. Smell the rain and feel the wind.

A beautiful thing is never perfect … There is a kind of beauty in imperfection … because of that, never try to be perfect dear LLET friend –  Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself !!!

Live life to the fullest and focus on all that is positive about you and around you … You’ve always been beautiful – Now you’ve just decided to be healthier !

Fitness – a simple word whose meaning is far-reaching and occupies almost every corner of our lives. Be it physical, emotional or mental, our fitness dictates how we function, and all aspects of it are intertwined – with one consistently affecting the other.

Physical fitness is about more than just losing weight or gaining muscle – it’s about laying down a foundation upon which your life can be built. A body in a positive physical state becomes a tremendous asset to draw from both inside the gym and out when it comes to issues such as alleviating stress, the promotion of healthier personal and professional relationships, learning how to better manage your time (and follow through on commitments) by way of scheduled activity, and an overall sense of mental clarity.


The “why” of fitness and its importance is easy to answer – but the “how” can be arrived at in a number of ways. You might enjoy participating in a sport-related activity (tennis, squash, golf), or you could get together with your friends to take part in a group class (aerobic, yoga, spinning).

Of course, there are also individuals that prefer to simply grab a pair of dumbbells and have at it or jump on a treadmill and run the day away. Everyone is unique in how they pursue their fitness goals – but we all share a common purpose: to make tomorrow better than yesterday!!!

LLET is here to help you with your fitness goals and to become your magical fitness center.


Where we are today with our definition of Fitness

For many people, going to the gym fully encompasses all the fitness we get in our life. We have desk jobs where we stay sedentary for 8 hours a day and have other demands of our time afterwards that don’t include getting out and getting active. Our evenings may also involve little activity, turning in for bed after sitting down to watch TV for a few hours while consuming high-calorie processed foods.

Is it any wonder that we’re experiencing the health problems we are today? The high-sugar foods we’re eating send a surge of insulin streaming through our veins, which then sucks all that excess sugar up and deposits it straight into our bodies’ fat stores. This will also cause an elevation in blood triglycerides to take place as well, setting us up for heart disease.

Some of us do go so far as to create structured workout programs in the gym, which is good, but this doesn’t get us mentally fit like non-gym activities do. Nor does it challenge our bodies in innovative ways. With gym activities, you’ll be performing the same repetitive motion time and time again, so there is little thought required to complete the activity. If you were to go out and play a game of soccer, for example, your mind must shift constantly and pay attention to what’s going on in the field. This added mental stimulation will not only improve your fitness while enhancing your mind-body coordination, but it will also keep you that much more interested in the workout as well. Think of our ancestors hunting for their meal, no two pursuits quite the same. While a few people do like to go into the gym and ‘zone out’ as they find it relieves stress, most people need more than that.

Creating the Happy Medium

This brings us to our solution. To reap all the fitness benefits possible, you need to change your definition of fitness and think outside the box. Rather than strictly looking to the gym for workout sessions to perform, consider activities that you used to enjoy as a child or young teen but don’t make time for any longer. If you could perform any activity simply for enjoyment sake, what would it be? Once you have your answer to this question, this is what you want to start doing at least once per week.

You still should aim to have a structured workout program in place – especially one that includes some resistance training as this is imperative to preventing lean muscle mass loss and maintaining an elevated metabolic rate – but beyond that, don’t be scared to venture out of the gym into other activities. Team sports, solo activities, or even group-led activities can all help to bring about fitness gains and improve your health.


Why is fitness important?

When we are very young, say in our teens to late twenties, we do not realize the importance of being fit. Because we are young, our body is capable of coping up with all the mental and physical stress and abuse. Because we do not bother to take care of our body during these years, there is no insurance for middle age and old age.

Just like any machinery collapses or some part of it wears out due to negligence or no maintenance, the body too is biological machinery with several systems working inside and lack of care and maintenance may gradually lead to certain handicaps with age. It is simple, “Don’t use it, you lose it”. 

Fitness provides self dependent

Regardless of over-weight or non over weight, staying fit is an insurance to be self dependent in old age. As a minimum requirement, every individual should accumulate at least 30 minutes of exercise on most and preferably all days of the week. 

Fitness provides health benefits, that is low risk for disease and being able to perform daily activities with vigour, can be achieved with moderate amount of exercise. 

Fitness keeps diseases at bay

There are several diseases which are called lifestyle diseases which are associated with sedentary lifestyle combined with not so healthy diet. Exercise prevents occurrence of cardiac events, reduces the incidence of stroke, hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, colon cancer, breast cancer, osteoporotic fractures, gallbladder disease, obesity, depression, anxiety and delay mortality. 

Individuals who change from a sedentary lifestyle to being physically active or who change from being physically unfit to physically fit, experience lower rates of disease compared with those who continue to remain sedentary or unfit. It is never too late to become physically active to achieve health benefits. 

Positive impact on your family

Improvement in your physical health will have a positive impact on your family, your personal relationships, your business and every aspect of your life. Apart from these it also helps you to reduce your expenditures on health care thus providing you the economic benefit as well. Exercise is a health tool to achieve physical fitness and every individual whether over weight or non overweight should take its importance seriously.  


Exercise requires efforts and self control

Exercise requires efforts and self control, but when these are combined to form a healthy life style, the rewards that you reap are beyond substantial. Individuals lead a more enjoyable, energetic and happier life.

Unlock your full potential and live a more fulfilling life dear LLET friend !!!
