Boy did I learn a valuable lesson. I used to use anti-aging creams that you find at the drugstore and department store until I did a little research. I found out there are a ridiculous amount of synthetic chemical ingredients in those products that can actually cause premature aging rather than reverse the aging process. Ever since then, I have been very careful about what I put on my skin and with my research I learned that the best way to prevent wrinkles is by following these 5 simple steps.Use an all natural cream on your skin during the day and another one before you go to bed at night. If you apply a good cream it will reduce the appearance of wrinkles dramatically and make you look younger and more beautiful. Look for a top wrinkle cream that contains ingredients like coenzyme Q10 in the nano-emulsion form, wakame, and functional keratin. These three ingredients combat the three main causes of aging which are the loss of collagen, the loss of hyaluronic acid, and the damage done … [Read more...] about The 5 Best Ways to Prevent Wrinkles
Best way to reduce cramps
At 853 km long and 650 km wide, Germany often seems too small to travel by plane and too big to travel by bus. We look at the most efficient and cheapest ways to get around the country. The Local recently ran a straw poll on our Facebook page, asking people what they saw as the best way of getting around the Bundesrepublik. Train travel ended up being the clear winner, with 60 percent of respondents saying they preferred taking to the tracks to flying, buses or ride sharing. But state-owned rail company Deutsche Bahn isn’t to everyone’s taste. After they announced a price increase earlier this week, several readers complained that tickets were already too expensive. So what are the other options? Flixbus has come to monopolize bus routes but still (mostly) offers cheap tickets, budget airlines hop between several German airports, and ride sharing offers an interesting option for former hitchhikers. We've picked a few popular routes to decide whether … [Read more...] about What is the best way to travel around Germany?
Partied too hard last night? Don't worry, we've got your back. Your liver is screaming at you, your head is banging - you're a quivering wreck. Whether it's a greasy fry-up or pint of water we all have our remedies to shaking off that hangover, but what's the best cure? There's plenty of options, from the traditional home cures to science approved tricks. Here's how to cure a hangover next time you find yourself shaking the morning after. Drink lots of water We're starting with an obvious one, but it's also the best. Drinking alcohol stops the body from creating a chemical called vasopressin, which means your kidneys send water straight to your bladder instead of absorbing into the body. It's also behind the reason for needing to go to the toilet so many times while you're actually drinking. This also leads to dehydration, as the body can expel up to four times as much water, and is probably why you've got that thumping headache and dry mouth. The best solution is to put a nice big … [Read more...] about How to cure a hangover – best ways from home remedies to science approved tricks
IF you have to deal with painful cramps every time your period comes around, chances are you are using painkillers to get you through the day. But using painkillers every month can actually cause your health more damage. Period pain varies from woman to woman - for one in five it can be as painful as a heart attack. No wonder many women are reaching for the painkillers. But popping too many pills can cause you some painful health problems, including stomach ulcers, reflux and digestive problems, according to Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist Dr Sahil Khanna. The biggest risk comes with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and Advil. Over time they can cause stomach inflammation, low blood pressure, reflux, constipation and diarrhoea. "Taking them [Advil] so much can have serious gastrointestinal side effects," Dr Khanna told the Mail Online. "It is particularly risky for patients who are also taking aspirin or ibuprofen, or they smoke or drink alcohol." Problems … [Read more...] about Taking painkillers for period pain is a BAD idea, doc warns – revealing best ways to ease cramps
If we look at fatigue as a factor in cramping then it makes sense to look at strategies that improve the amount of energy available to your muscles.But where do you get the energy from and enough of it to prevent cramping? The answer is carbohydrates.Sports drinks will always provide the best and most readily available source of carbohydrates.But according to sports nutritionist Richard Renton, it's the ones with added protein that are thought to have the advantage of improving carbohydrate conversion into glycogen by helping to elevate and maintain higher levels of insulin.Renton agrees with the beneficial use of protein in sports drinks: "Certainly as a trainer this has always been my experience and I also prefer my sports drinks to have added antioxidant vitamins (A,C and E) to reduce natural free radical damage that occurs in the muscles, B group vitamins for energy (they are involved in the energy production pathways) protein, minerals and additional electrolytes as well as … [Read more...] about Running & Muscle Cramps – The Energy Factor
