4 Unique Dermatological Hacks on Planet Earth

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 Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

          How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

          You have a deadline looming. However, instead of doing your work, you are fiddling with miscellaneous things like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums. You know you should be working, but you just don’t feel like doing anything.

          We are all familiar with the procrastination phenomenon. When we procrastinate, we squander away our free time and put off important tasks we should be doing them till it’s too late. And when it is indeed too late, we panic and wish we got started earlier.

          The chronic procrastinators I know have spent years of their life looped in this cycle. Delaying, putting off things, slacking, hiding from work, facing work only when it’s unavoidable, then repeating this loop all over again. It’s a bad habit that eats us away and prevents us from achieving greater results in life.

          Don’t let procrastination take over your life. Here, I will share my personal steps on how to stop procrastinating. These 11 steps will definitely apply to you too:

          1. Break Your Work into Little Steps

          Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time. If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further. Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking “gee, this is so simple that I might as well just do it now!”.

          For example, I’m currently writing a new book (on How to achieve anything in life). Book writing at its full scale is an enormous project and can be overwhelming. However, when I break it down into phases such as –

          Advertising

          • (1) Research
          • (2) Deciding the topic
          • (3) Creating the outline
          • (4) Drafting the content
          • (5) Writing Chapters #1 to #10,
          • (6) Revision
          • (7) etc.

          Suddenly it seems very manageable. What I do then is to focus on the immediate phase and get it done to my best ability, without thinking about the other phases. When it’s done, I move on to the next.

          2. Change Your Environment

          Different environments have different impact on our productivity. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you want to snuggle and sleep? If it’s the latter, you should look into changing your workspace.

          One thing to note is that an environment that makes us feel inspired before may lose its effect after a period of time. If that’s the case, then it’s time to change things around. Refer to Steps #2 and #3 of 13 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity, which talks about revamping your environment and workspace.

          3. Create a Detailed Timeline with Specific Deadlines

          Having just 1 deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back, until it’s too late.

          Break down your project (see tip #1), then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task. This way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date. Your timelines must be robust, too – i.e. if you don’t finish this by today, it’s going to jeopardize everything else you have planned after that. This way it creates the urgency to act.

          My goals are broken down into monthly, weekly, right down to the daily task lists, and the list is a call to action that I must accomplish this by the specified date, else my goals will be put off.

          4. Eliminate Your Procrastination Pit-Stops

          If you are procrastinating a little too much, maybe that’s because you make it easy to procrastinate.

          Identify your browser bookmarks that take up a lot of your time and shift them into a separate folder that is less accessible. Disable the automatic notification option in your email client. Get rid of the distractions around you.

          I know some people will out of the way and delete or deactivate their facebook accounts. I think it’s a little drastic and extreme as addressing procrastination is more about being conscious of our actions than counteracting via self-binding methods, but if you feel that’s what’s needed, go for it.

          5. Hang out with People Who Inspire You to Take Action

          I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behaviors. Of course spending time with Steve Jobs or Bill Gates every day is probably not a feasible method, but the principle applies — The Hidden Power of Every Single Person Around You

          Identify the people, friends or colleagues who trigger you – most likely the go-getters and hard workers – and hang out with them more often. Soon you will inculcate their drive and spirit too.

          Advertising

          As a personal development blogger, I “hang out” with inspiring personal development experts by reading their blogs and corresponding with them regularly via email and social media. It’s communication via new media and it works all the same.

          6. Get a Buddy

          Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun. Ideally, your buddy should be someone who has his/her own set of goals. Both of you will hold each other accountable to your goals and plans. While it’s not necessary for both of you to have the same goals, it’ll be even better if that’s the case, so you can learn from each other.

          I have a good friend whom I talk to regularly, and we always ask each other about our goals and progress in achieving those goals. Needless to say, it spurs us to keep taking action.

          7. Tell Others About Your Goals

          This serves the same function as #6, on a larger scale. Tell all your friends, colleagues, acquaintances and family about your projects. Now whenever you see them, they are bound to ask you about your status on those projects.

          For example, sometimes I announce my projects on The Personal Excellence Blog, Twitter and Facebook, and my readers will ask me about them on an ongoing basis. It’s a great way to keep myself accountable to my plans.

          8. Seek out Someone Who Has Already Achieved the Outcome

          What is it you want to accomplish here, and who are the people who have accomplished this already? Go seek them out and connect with them. Seeing living proof that your goals are very well achievable if you take action is one of the best triggers for action.

          9. Re-Clarify Your Goals

          If you have been procrastinating for an extended period of time, it might reflect a misalignment between what you want and what you are currently doing. Often times, we outgrow our goals as we discover more about ourselves, but we don’t change our goals to reflect that.

          Get away from your work (a short vacation will be good, else just a weekend break or staycation will do too) and take some time to regroup yourself. What exactly do you want to achieve? What should you do to get there? What are the steps to take? Does your current work align with that? If not, what can you do about it?

          10. Stop Over-Complicating Things

          Are you waiting for a perfect time to do this? That maybe now is not the best time because of X, Y, Z reasons? Ditch that thought because there’s never a perfect time. If you keep waiting for one, you are never going to accomplish anything.

          Perfectionism is one of the biggest reasons for procrastination. Read more about why perfectionist tendencies can be a bane than a boon: Why Being A Perfectionist May Not Be So Perfect.

          11. Get a Grip and Just Do It

          At the end, it boils down to taking action. You can do all the strategizing, planning and hypothesizing, but if you don’t take action, nothing’s going to happen. Occasionally, I get readers and clients who keep complaining about their situations but they still refuse to take action at the end of the day.

          Reality check:

          I have never heard anyone procrastinate their way to success before and I doubt it’s going to change in the near future.  Whatever it is you are procrastinating on, if you want to get it done, you need to get a grip on yourself and do it.
