Christmas Project: Candy cane Nail Art

This season is all about creativity. We are surrounded by white, green and red. From snowflakes, reindeers, Santa and his helpers, gingerbread houses and building snowmen to mistletoes and brightly-lighten trees, December has wonderful ways of making us enjoy the festivities. With all this variety in Christmas decorations, what a better way to celebrate than to turn your nails into colorful candy canes! Follow the instruction for the glittery nail art.

What you need:

  • Nail Polish: red, white and your most sparkly color
  • Thin brush
  • Top coat

Before you start:

Hold your brushes and your vivid bottles of nail polish. Before you start your fun adventure of transforming your nails into a sweet treat, try the nail art on one finger first to see if you actually like it. If you do, and it is likely that you will, go on with your colorful project.

How to do it:

Choose your favorite shade of red nail polish and use it as a top coat to cover the canvas (your nail, of course). Going for a nice and wine-like color is always better than neon red for a Christmas-themed nail art as it gives a more traditional look. Wait for it to dry and make sure that there are no traces of air bubbles or smudges. Apply a second coat of that dreamy red to maximize the beauty of that background color.

Using a thin brush and a white nail polish; draw three equally-distant diagonal lines on your nail. Note that the space between the lines should be wide enough to welcome a new color.

Bring out your sparkly side by filling the space between each of the white lines with a diagonal glittery color. Silver and gold go well with this design. Let it dry. Apply a final transparent top coat to protect your nail art and make it last longer.

Like the result? Play some Christmas carols in the background and enjoy decorating the rest of your nails by following the same simple and easy steps.

Winged Eyeliner Revisited

“Never ask a girl with a winged eyeliner why she’s late.”

Winged Eyeliner Made Perfect

It’s been a while that we’ve been all looking for the perfect winged eyeliner look. It is true, it really is alluring. Unfortunately, it took us some time to master the look. In fact, it was tricky for all of us. Few tips and techniques were available. We learned them all. Here we are today looking at you with the perfect cat eyes.

In fact, you’ll be combining three looks in one. A vintage mainstay, the classic winged eyeliner is always in style. Not only this, it’s a part of your triple eyeliner too. The two others also consist of a winged eyeliner look. Here’s the twist, however. All three lines are intricately molded. How? You’ll need to watch the tutorial to find out!

How Should a Baby Sleep?

Many babies around the world have died as a result of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). In the United States, it is the most common cause of death among babies between the ages of 1 month and 12 months. Is there any way to reduce the risk? According to The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), research in recent years indicates that the risk of SIDS seems to drop significantly when babies sleep on their back rather than on their stomach. Several countries have instituted programs to alert parents to the association between sleep position and SIDS. In Australia, England, Denmark, New Zealand, and Norway, SIDS fell by at least 50 percent after one to two years of public campaigns to promote putting babies to bed on their back.

Exactly how a baby’s sleeping on its stomach is linked to SIDS is not known, but some researchers suggest that this prone position may result in a baby’s rebreathing its own expelled air, thus increasing the level of carbon dioxide in its blood. The baby’s body may also become overheated because it does not dissipate heat as well when lying on its stomach. In any case, infants laid down either on their back or on their stomach tend to remain in that position. Studies also suggest that putting a normal, healthy infant on its back is better than putting it on its side.Why do mothers choose one sleep position over another? JAMA notes that mothers often just follow custom—they put their babies to bed the way their own mothers or others in their community would. Or they may adopt the practice they observed in the hospital. Some mothers also feel that their baby prefers or sleeps better in a particular position. Many mothers consistently lay the baby down on its back for the first month but then change to the stomach later on. “This trend is disturbing,” states JAMA, “because the risk of SIDS is highest among infants at 2 to 3 months of age.” Doctors are striving to inform parents of small infants about what they say is a simple, effective measure for reducing the risk of SIDS—placing healthy infants on their back to sleep.

The Suitable Body Cream for Your Skin Type

How do you buy your body cream?
– Based on the fruity smell?
– Buy two, get one free promotion?
– From latest ads you see in the magazines?
Did you know that you should really pay attention to the label on the cream you are purchasing, not just the fruity smell? Buying body butter is not the same as buying body lotion or even a body moisturizer. Each one of these creams has a purpose and an effect on your skin. You need to figure out what your skin needs before purchasing the cream.

 

Read along to know how to pick the most suitable body cream: 
1- Body Butter
As you can tell from its name, this type of cream consists of butter and oils, and it is the thickest of the three types of creams. Body butter has a really strong scent and it will last on your skin for a long time. Body butter is made to nourish your skin and retain moisture, and is ideal for dry skin, meaning it is best applied to elbows, knees and feet to provide an intense moisturizing effect.
That doesn’t mean you can’t apply it to the rest of your body, but it works best on these areas. Body butter is best used at night before you sleep, as it leaves your skin quite sticky and oily until it is fully absorbed.
When applying body butter, apply it to damp skin so it can get absorbed faster and moisturize well.
2- Body Lotion
Lotions are much lighter than body butters, consisting of oils and water. So if your skin is dehydrated, you should go for a lotion as it will work better. Lotions work quite well on oily skin, they are not sticky and are easily absorbed by the skin. Lotions are best for your stomach and thighs, as these are not dry areas on your body, the lotion will keep them smooth and hydrated.

3- Body Moisturizer
A moisturizer in somewhere in between, lighter than the body butter but heavier than the lotion. The body moisturizer is absorbed quickly by the skin, forming a barrier that prevents the moisture from leaving your skin. Body moisturizers are filled with essential vitamins and oils that will linger on your skin. If you are suffering from dry skin, especially on your arms and legs, a moisturizer is the way to go.
Skin is one of the most sensitive parts of our body for both girls and boys. Keep it soft and glowing.

A New Defense in the Fight against Tuberculosis

TUBERCULOSIS (TB) is man’s oldest infectious killer. TB is a disease that usually attacks and lays waste to the lungs, but it can spread to other areas of the body, particularly the brain, the kidneys, and the bones. Tuberculosis of the lungs can cause coughing, loss of weight and appetite, severe sweating at night, weakness, shortness of breath, and chest pains.

Now the Good News about Tuberculosis

Today, however, there is hope. After ten years of testing, researchers have come up with a strategy that may reduce tuberculosis from being a killer on the loose to being a criminal under siege. Dr. Hiroshi Nakashima, former director-general of World Health Organization (WHO), called this new strategy “one of the most important public health breakthroughs of this decade.” And Dr. Arita Kochi, director of the WHO Global TB Program, says that it offers the first-ever chance to “reverse the TB epidemic.” The cause of all this excitement? A method called DOTS.

DOTS is an acronym for directly observed treatment, short-course. It is a health management system that can cure most TB patients in six to eight months without their spending a single day in the hospital. DOTS depends on five elements for its success. If any of the elements are missing, notes WHO, the ability to cure TB victims “slips through our fingers.” What are these elements?

  • 1. Directly: The most dangerous TB case is the diagnosed case. WHO thus stresses that first of all, health-care workers should direct their efforts to identifying the people in their community who suffer from contagious TB.
  • 2. Observed: The second element of DOTS makes the health system—not the patient—responsible for achieving a cure. Health-care workers or trained volunteers, such as shopkeepers, teachers, or former TB patients, observe patients swallowing each dose of anti-TB medicines. “Patient observers” are crucial for success because a main reason why TB persists till today is that patients stop taking their medicines too soon. After just a few weeks of medication, they start feeling better and stop taking their pills. Yet, the medication must be taken for six to eight months in order to rid the body of all TB bacilli.
  • 3. Treatment: During these six to eight months, health workers monitor the results of the treatment and document the patients’ progress. In that way, they make sure that patients are fully cured and cannot pass the infection on to others.
  • 4. Short-Course: Using the right combination and the right amount of anti-TB drugs, known as short-course chemotherapy, for the right length of time is the fourth element of the DOTS strategy. These combined drugs give a knockout punch to kill the TB bacilli. The drugs must always be in supply so that treatment is never interrupted.
  • 5. !: WHO expresses this fifth element of the DOTS strategy by means of an exclamation mark at the end of DOTS! It represents funding and sound policies. WHO urges health systems to secure financial commitment from governments and nongovernmental organizations and to make TB treatment part of the country’s existing health system.
