4 Unique Dermatological Hacks on Planet Earth

Prioritizing beauty is something that people do all around the world. We have grown to appreciate beauty as an important part of our lives. We wake up every morning, staring at the mirror, criticizing ourselves or maybe admiring our beautiful curves and attributes. In the working world, our appearance matters as much as our skills and talents, as the world continues to judge based on first impressions .

Plastic surgery has become one of the most profiting industry, with South Korea leading the nations in these procedures. Perfection has become the main priority and one’s skin becomes the symbol of perfection. Having perfect and flawless skin symbolizes an individual’s social status, which leads to millions of people seeking expensive procedures to fit into the mold of society.

However, there are certain less evasive ways to ensure healthy skin. Some of these unique methods may raise eyebrows, but these are natural elements which guarantee positive results.

1. Lemon & Agave Age Fighter

    Although we are supposed to grow old gracefully, we sometimes find it hard to accept the fact that it is happening. We find it hard to accept that our bogey music festival lifestyle has come to a halt, and we are choosing quietness and calm adventures instead. Our hands become the first sign of our body aging where age spots become the new decoration.

    However, a simple treatment will allow you to look youthful in your glorious age: a harmonious combination of lemon, agave, and rice can create wonders to your skin. Find a sunny day to combine your magic paste of a whole lemon, agave extract, and a bowl of cooked of rice. Mix them finely and use them as a scrub on your hands.

    Wash them off after about five to 10 minutes and compare the difference. Regular practice of this guarantees the vanishing of your age spots, giving you that youthful glow again.

    2. Egg White Facial

      Growing up in a family which focused on being completely natural, I wasn’t allowed to use products which had been chemically tested or contained a high amount of unnatural ingredients. Furthermore, being a person with lots of allergies and sensitive skin, I find the charcoal content in many makeup products cause my face to itch; these products turn me into Bugs Bunny by the end of the day.

      However my smart mother came up with a fine solution: egg whites. Every weekend, I use an egg white facial to acts as both an anti-wrinkle cream and a great exfoliator. The ingredients are pretty simple and are easily available; mix in two egg whites with a dash of vinegar and apply it on your face.

      After 15–20 minutes, wash it off, and your face will feel refreshed and  younger once again. However always keep in mind to keep your face in a pouting position and refrain from talking ; this is to avoid the creation of unwanted wrinkles.

      3. Placenta Pills

        Among all the natural remedies, this was one that put me off my meal; however my skepticism faded away after a short trial. Kim Kardashian, the new age goddess of poise and beauty, has gotten her private Kim K placenta pills made for her, so why shouldn’t I? The placenta is an organ which becomes the life sac of a fetus . After birth, the placenta comes out of the mother body along with the baby.

        However, recently it’s been discovered to have various medicinal properties and has been part of Chinese traditional medicine for centuries. Apparently it has the properties of anti-aging, moisturizing, and skin whitening effects. During the introduction of the placenta as medicinal properties, it was usually boiled to retain its nutrients, but recently there are companies whom can transform your placenta into bottled pills.

        Hence, you will be able to try out the placenta in the form of pills instead of being put off by the sight of the organ.

        4. Chick Peas & Tumeric Acne Scrub

          Growing up, we have all faced this problem of acne at the peak of puberty. Upon a visit to India, I witnessed the flawless skin of women there. Despite the immense heat, they seem to never break out. Eventually, I found out their secret: it’s just a simple mixture of chickpeas and turmeric root. This scrub prevents them from breaking out into an acne hive.

          Mixing two whole cups of finely ground chickpeas and natural turmeric powder along with enough almond milk into a fine paste. Then using it as a scrub and apply it all over your body and leave it for a duration of 30–40 minutes before showering it off. A continuous use for about 4–6 weeks will give you clear skin with no acne.

          You might end up with a slightly yellow tint, but it eventually fades after a few days.

          For those who prefer a natural way of having flawless skin and being beautiful, do try these methods out. If it worked for me and many others around the world, it will likely give you the same positive result and flawless glow.

          How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

          How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

          Have you ever noticed that some people are able to effortlessly remember even the most mundane details and quickly comprehend new things? Well, you can too!

          To unlock the full potential of your brain, you need to keep it active and acute. Wasting time on your couch watching mindless television shows or scrolling through facebook is not going to help.

          Besides getting out flashcards, what can you do to help remember things better and learn new things more quickly? Check out these 10 effective ways on how to improve memory:

          1. Exercise and Get Your Body Moving

          Exercising doesn’t just exercise the body, it also helps to exercise your brain. Obesity and the myriad of diseases that eventually set in as a result of being overweight can cause serious harm to the brain.

          Furthermore, without regular exercise, plaque starts to build up in your arteries, and your blood vessels begin to lose the ability to effectively pump blood. Plaque buildup leads to heart attacks and it also reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that your blood carries to your brain. When the nutrients don’t make it there, the brain’s ability to function is compromised.

          To prevent this from happening, make sure you get moving every day. Even if it’s just a brisk walk, it’ll help you maintain and increase your mental acuity. Brisk walking, swimming and dancing are all excellent activities. Take a look at these 5 Ways to Find Time for Exercise.

          2. Eliminate Stressors and Seek Help If You’re Depressed

          Anything that causes you major stress, like anger or anxiety, will in time begin to eat away the parts of your brain that are responsible for memory. Amongst the most brain-damaging stressors is depression, which is actually often misdiagnosed a a memory problem since one of its primary symptoms is the inability to concentrate.

          If you can’t concentrate, then you might feel like you are constantly forgetting things. Depression increases the levels of cortisol in your bloodstream which elevates the cortisol levels in the brain. Doctors have found that increased cortisol diminishes certain areas of the brain, especially the hippocampus which is where short-term memories are stored.

          Prolonged depression can thus destroy your brain’s ability to remember anything new. Seek professional help to combat your depression – your brain will thank you.

          3. Get a Good Night’s Sleep and Take Naps

          Getting a consistent 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night will increase your memory. During sleep, the brain firms up memories of recently acquired information.

          Getting enough sleep will help you get through the full spectrum of nocturnal cycles that are essential to optimal brain and body functioning during the waking hours. Taking a nap throughout the day, especially after learning something new, can also help you to retain those memories as well as recharge your brain and keep it sharper longer.

          4. Feed Your Brain

          Fifty to sixty percent of the brain’s overall weight is pure fat, which is used to insulate its billions of nerve cells. The better insulated a cell is, the faster it can send messages and the quicker you will be thinking.

          This is precisely why parents are advised to feed their young children whole milk and to restrict dieting – their brains’ need fat to grow and work properly. Skimping on fats can be devastating even to the adult brain.

          Thus, eating foods that contain a healthy mix of fats is vital for long-term memory. Some excellent food choices include fish (especially anchovies, mackerel and wild salmon) and dark leafy green vegetables. Here’re more brain food choices: 12 Foods that Can Improve Your Brain Power

          Deep-fried foods obviously contain fat but their lack of nutritional value is not going to help your brain or your body, so think healthy foods and fats.

          5. Eat Breakfast and Make Sure It Includes an Egg

          According to Larry McCleary, M.D., author of  The Brain Trust Program, an egg is the ideal breakfast. Eggs contain B vitamins which help nerve cells to burn glucose, antioxidants that protect neurons against damage; and omega-3 fatty acids that keep nerve cells firing at optimal speed.

          Other foods to add to your breakfast include fruits, veggies and lean proteins. Avoid trans fats and high fructose corn syrup. Trans fats diminish the brain cells’ ability to communicate with each other and HFCS can actually shrink the brain by damaging cells.

          Having a healthy breakfast in the morning has been shown to improve performance throughout the day. If you’re too busy to have a healthy breakfast, this maybe just right for you: 33 Quick And Healthy Breakfasts For Busy Mornings

          6. Write it Down

          If there’s something you want to remember, writing it down can help.

          It may sound like a no-brainer, but do you really know why? Writing it down creates oxygenated blood flow to areas of your brain that a responsible for your memories and literally exercises those parts of it. Here’s How Writing Things Down Can Change Your Life.

          You can start a journal, write yourself emails or even start keeping a blog – all of these activities will help to improve your capacity to remember and memorize information.

          7. Listen to Music

          Research shows that certain types of music are very helpful in recalling memories. Information that is learned while listening to a particular song or collection can often be recalled by thinking of the song or “playing” it mentally. Songs and music can serve as cues for pulling up particular memories.

          8. Visual Concepts

          In order to remember things, many people need to visualize the information they are studying.

          Pay attention to photographers, charts and other graphics that might appear in your textbook; or if you’re not studying a book, try to pull up a mental image of what it is you are trying to remember. It might also help to draw your own charts or figures, or utilize colors and highlighters to group related ideas in your notes.

          Here, you can learn How to Become a Person Who Can Visualize Results.

          9. Teach Someone Else

          Reading material out loud has been shown to significantly improve memory of the material. Expanding further upon this idea is the fact that psychologists and educators have found that by having students teach new concepts to others, it helps to enhance understanding and recall.

          Teach new concepts and information to a friend or study partner, and you’ll find you remember the information a lot better.

          10. Do Crossword Puzzles, Read or Play Cards

          Studies have shown that doing crossword puzzles, read or play cards on a daily basis not only keep your brain active but also help to delay memory loss, especially in those who develop dementia.

          So pick up the daily newspaper and work on that crossword puzzle, read a book or enjoy a game of solitaire.

          Pick one to two of these tips first and start applying them to your everyday life. Very soon you’ll find yourself having better memories and a clearer head!
