Great skin drink Coconut water

Donna spangler skin after 3 weeks of drinking coconut water

Donna spangler skin after 3 weeks of drinking coconut water

I have discovered first hand that coconut water is great for the skin. I got several cartons of it on sale recently and have been drinking it like regular water. I am more hydrated as it contains electrolytes to hydrate. After 3 weeks I did notice a difference. I went through about 6 cartons of ZICO coconut water. You can use any brand but make sure that there is no added sugar.   I have eye makeup in above picture but very little base and could tell there was a difference.

The beauty and the bed bugs

unnamed

Never Let Bed Bugs Enter Your Home!

The common entry places of the bed bugs are bedding, clothing or the furniture. Sometimes, some guests may be visiting your place, and they may carry the bed bugs with them. Here are some essential tips that can help you in staying away from the bed bugs at your home.

Never Use Used Items: Do not bring any box spring, bed frames or furniture left out in the street to the home. When you are going for the used or the rented items, you must obtain the prevention policy of the bed bug.

Be Cautious: Always place your handbags, purses and the backpacks in the bed or on the couch where you generally take rest.

Beware At Hotel: If you are travelling away from your home and staying in the hotel, inspect your room very carefully. You must check the luggage, bedding and the furniture of the hotel, so that there are no bed bugs. You must keep the suitcases off the floor and also check them while you are taking the departure.

Identify The Common Areas: Try identifying the common areas where the bed bugs can stay all together. They are named ‘bed’ because they usually flock in the sleeping places. It can be box spring, bed frame or mattress. These blood sucking pests may also flock in various portable electronics like the laptops as they produce warmth naturally.

Never Keep The Luggage On Bed: After returning from a hotel, never keep your luggage in your bed without checking. Always do a thorough check in the folds of the clothing and the pockets of the bag to know whether there are any bed bugs or not.

Check Room Before Unpack: If you want to take advice from an expert, you must check your room before unpacking. Observe the tiny blood spots or the bugs in the bedding or the mattress. You must also look for the box springs or the bed frames. Try not to limit your search within the bed or the couch. Try examining the wooden furniture with special attention.

Inspect The Clothes: Clothes are a great carrier of the bugs, and those who are infected can be separated within plastic bag. Those infected clothes can be directly entered into the washing machine at the highest mode. Try undressing yourself in the hard surface like the floor so that you can wipe them off easily.

Check Used Furniture: If you are hiring or using the used furniture, they must be checked before taking them home. Always avoid mattresses that are used.

Pest Control Service: You can always take help from the professional experts while controlling the pests. The chances of infestation can be reduced if you can obtain a routine treatment of the pests. If you are a renter, you must communicate with your landlord and get the pest control solution.

Learn How To Identify The Bed Bugs: When you start identifying the bed bugs in the hotel, you may shift your room or even your hotel. Learn how to identify the bed bugs. The bed bugs are generally 1/5 inch long with a flat oval body and are reddish brown in nature.

For preventing the infestation, you must be aware of the bed bugs. While travelling, you must be extra cautious. If you are careful by following the above tips, you can prevent the invasion of the bed bugs at your home. If infected at home, you must start up the cleaning process by heating, freezing or vacuuming. The professional experts can guide you throughout the entire process.

Don’t get tired of your elderly person

meal

You might not be looking forward to the day that you will age, but it will surely come. Time is the only constant thing in this world. As time moves, things happen, changes occur and people age! You definitely would not want to become old and age miserably. You would want to be shown love and care as you get older and older.

It would only be fair if you do the same to the old when you can. You need to take good care of your grandparents and ensure that they are not having a hard time aging. You must be wondering what that means. People may be having difficulties when aging because of many reasons. Some of these reasons include:

Old people should not be viewed as just another group of people. They are just the same as anyone and would love to be shown love and care like any other person. Leaving them to age feeling lonely will do them no good; only harm. This is when thoughts on giving up start to crop up.

  • Feeling unwanted

There is only one way that old people may feel unwanted; this is by ignoring them. Everything goes down to showing them love. Without love, they will feel unwanted. Such a person will, therefore, see nothing to live for or rather to fight for.

It is important that you give them a reason to be strong and live longer.

You also need to be aware that old people need to be taken care of especially in the case that they are sick. You may have an old person in the house and is just from the hospital. Such a person will require a high level of care. It is important that you look for an in-home service provider. Their services need to be the best that you can get so as to ensure your person gets the best.

You may also be wondering just how you are supposed to show your old person that you love them. There are many different ways of showing your elderly persons love. One of these ways is:

  • Be there for them

Nothing beats care as being physically present for someone. You will want someone to have your back always in your times of need so as to feel cared for. The same goes for the old people. The only way you will show your love to them is by being there for them.

In the event that you cannot be there for reasons you cannot avoid, be sure to look for a service provider.

Look for a well-trained service provider who will ensure the safety of your old person. They will ensure they eat right and live a healthy life. The caregiver will basically do the things that they cannot do on their own. Their services should be top notch. Do not take chances.

Bio

Nancy Brooke is a 27-year-old lady who loves to take care of the elderly people. Her love for helping out saw her study social works in the university. Nancy took her grandpa to Assisting hands-northwest Houston, and she says their services are the best.

Molly applied Rimmel London BB Cream Matte in Medium to give her a sheer glow. Then, she softly contoured her cheeks and flushed her apples using the Rimmel London Sculpting and Highlighting Kit by Kate Moss in Golden Bronze.

LIPS 

Molly painted on  Rimmel London Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lip Color in Dare to Pink for a soft, nude-y pink finish.

EYES & BROWS 

On the eyes, Molly first applied a thin layer of Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Bluffing on the entire lid.  She then lined with eye with a combo of electric blue using the Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow and Liner in Dark Side of Blue and turquoise using the Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Teasing Turquoise.  To finish off, the smoked out her lower lash line with a taupe shadow.

To enhance her gorgeous brows, Molly used the Rimmel London Brow This Way Sculpting Kit in Blonde.  Next, she applied 2 coats of the Rimmel London Volume Flash Super Speed Mascara in Extreme Black.
