Skin will immediately feel more taut after you peel off GlamGlow GravityMud Firming Treatment ($69), a rubbery silver mask. "As the water in the formula evaporates, the polymers inside leave an invisible film that shrink-wraps the skin," explains New York dermatologist Whitney Bowe. "The polymers are connected to one another like a basket weave, so as it gets drier, the weave gets tighter." The Spanx-like effect lasts a few hours, making this mask the perfect addition to a pre-party routine

The 6 Worst Winter Cocktails You Can Drink

When the days get dismally short and the air is cold enough to actually hurt your face, few things lift your spirits like a wintry cocktail.

(Not all cocktails are created equal. Check out these 8 cocktails you can drink all night and not get fat.) Want to know which winter drinks do the most damage? Here are the six absolute worst offenders.

Here’s Why More Exercise Won’t Help You Lose More Weight

HealthDay Reporter
THURSDAY, Jan. 28, 2016 (HealthDay News) — That daily 5-mile run may not be burning as many calories as you think, a new study suggests.
In fact, the researchers found, moderate exercise—the equivalent of walking a couple miles per day—may be the best way to burn extra calories. Beyond that, the body seems to adapt its metabolism so that calorie-burning plateaus, no matter how hard you work out.

Exercising before breakfast lets you lose extra weight

If you are heading to the gym or pounding the pavements in the hope of losing weight, try to do it before you eat your breakfast.
Exercising before the first meal of the day is more effective than after it, a British study has found.
Not only does working up a sweat on an empty stomach burn off more body fat – helping you lose those extra inches around the waist – it also triggers a  bigger reduction in artery-clogging blood fats.
Although the benefits of exercise are well-known, people have been unsure about whether it is better to do it on an empty stomach or a full one.
Dr Jason Gill, who conducted the research at Glasgow University, said that while exercise in itself is good, any done before breakfast may be extra beneficial, because it forces the body to rely on its stores of fat for energy.
‘When people talk about losing weight, they really mean losing fat,’ he added.
Ten men made three visits to his laboratory at the university’s Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, and were given breakfast each time.

On the first visit, the men didn’t do any exercise. On another, they did an hour’s brisk walk ahead of breakfast and on the third they did the walk after breakfast.
Those who exercised burnt off more fat than those who simply sat around. And those who did their walk before breakfast used up 33 per cent more fat than those who exercised after eating.

Acne, eczema, redness, inflammation, dark spots or under eye circles, unwanted facial hair, wrinkles. In the event that you have any of the previously mentioned facial and skin issues, then this homemade mask is for you. It lights up skin and tightens pores as it works to clear up acne and eczema, and reduces any redness or inflammation. It likewise helps fade those unattractive dark spots and under eye circles, while working to diminish unwanted facial hair. In addition, it is anti-aging and fights wrinkles while leaving skin soft and smooth. This mask is the most beneficial one and it is made of a few simple, cheap and easy to find ingredients. The main ingredient is turmeric.

How makeup can help at the hardest times

Iattended a close friend’s funeral last week. I’d taken some time off at the end of her life, when working my way through a pile of product testers was the last thing I felt like doing, but she unknowingly convinced me to get back in the saddle.

Bath products to soften dry winter skin


Even unproblematic skins can become horribly dry in winter. Sore shins, flaky arms and greyish knees and elbows are, for many, as part and parcel of January as an extra 5lbs and persistent, low-level ennui. The latter makes me want to wallow nightly in a hot bath that, though temporarily comforting, exacerbates the dryness, and so we continue..

Quick Review Of Snoring and Its Relationship to Sleep Apnea

 Quick Review Of Snoring and Its Relationship to Sleep Apnea

Do you snore? If so you are definitely not alone. It is estimated that 30 to 50 percent of all adults snore...and the susceptibility increases with age. But snoring alone does not mean that you have sleep apnea...in fact, in most cases snoring is not harmful.

Like most women, I have loads of jeans. Skinny ones, straight ones, ripped ones, ones that have seen better days. My current favourite is a rediscovered pair of Acne ones that bridge the gap between skinny and straight, and I like to wear with sweatshirts and sneakers.

10 idiot-proof (and super entertaining) health tips that will help you own 2016

Between Tom and Gisele’s recently revealed dietary restrictions and Victoria Beckham’s placenta facials (no, that’s not a joke), the celebrity health and beauty standard is becoming increasingly unattainable. But good news, folks: You don’t have to change your life for life-changing results. Here, the health hacks to master this year.


It's the best of both worlds.

On New Year's Eve, in a fit of frustration after 30 minutes spent attempting to get Ziggy Stardust-blue cream eye shadow to stay in place through blinking and run-ins with overgrown bangs, I closed my eyes and blasted my face with strong-hold hairspray. Did it work? You bet. But I paid for immovable shadow and foundation with dry, tight, matte skin—and in the winter? Never again. 
Of course, that's the extreme route. My everyday approach to setting my makeup involves a fluffy brush and some loose powder, though even that can accentuate flakiness and dullness. But it's freezing, my skin hasn't seen the sun in ages, that's life...or so I thought before this finishing balm found me. I was skeptical—not because I don't love a balm but because everything that makes one such is exactly what makes it an impractical setting product—and yet, it works. Buff the velvety, white balm over your made-up face with the mini Kabuki brush (there's a sponge, too, but it doesn't work as well) and the effect is close to a low-level blurring, smoothing filter that follows you around all day without budging and oh, also imparts a hydrated, glowy finish. Bottom line: Have your cake. Eat it, too.

Homemade natural remedies for long and strong nails

In order to have long and strong nails, you have to pay more attention to your nutrition.

3 Best Natural Remedies to Heal Stretch Marks Fast

A lot of people, both women and men fight against the terrible problem of stretch marks. Stretch marks, are scars with a specific aspect: the skin is very thin, smooth and slightly wrinkled. The old stretch marks have a pearly white color, while those who appeared recently are red-violet. They appear mostly on the abdomen, breasts, hips, thighs and buttocks.

6 health fads you should stay away in 2016

1. Black pudding

Apparently, this traditional fry-up favourite has joined the ranks of kale, quinoa and chia seeds as a so-called "superfood" of 2016. Such an accolade has been bestowed onto black pudding mostly on the basis of its blood content, which makes it rich in haem iron, a well-absorbed form of dietary iron. 
However, the website that sparked this wave of publicity has now confirmed that its endorsement was based on customer search trends, not as a result of scientific tests. The reality is that black pudding is calorie dense, high in salt, and a processed meat, consumption of which has been linked to bowel cancer. I wouldn't be blending it into your smoothies quite yet….

The Venus Factor Review - Results Revealed

The Venus Factor is a diet and fitness system created especially for women. The program takes a revolutionary approach to weight loss for women in its potential for transforming the female body. This program is creating a buzz of excitement world-wide because it works.

The Venus Factor Review: Exclusive Weight Loss Program For Women

Most women are very critical about their body. We very often let our lifestyles takeover. We end up putting on a few pounds, sitting behind a desk, having children, skipping the gym and before you know it those few pounds multiply and it's very difficult to lose them. If you're like me it's a constant struggle to keep the weight off.

Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off? Well, most weight loss programs don't work because they are designed for men, and as you have probably noticed men and women lose weight very differently.

Lack of magnesium can lead to inefficient metabolism, hormonal imbalances, poor quality sleep, low energy, skin problems and fat storage in places where we do not want fat. Here, seven ways to ensure you are getting enough, from nutritionist and founder of The Wave State, Steven Macari.
Why Magnesium Is So Important 
Your body is doing all sorts of things behind the scenes. Imagine that these things your body is doing are transactions. These transactions require money. Imagine that the money for these transactions is magnesium. Magnesium is involved in over 300 regularly occurring transactions in the human body. When the body doesn't have enough magnesium these transactions don't occur as efficiently as they should and imbalances occur. This means you will not look and feel as good as you should. This translates to an inefficient metabolism, hormonal imbalances, poor quality sleep, low energy, skin problems and fat storage in places where we do not want fat.

8 nutritional tips to contour your face

Contouring with food? Looks as good as it tastes

There's more to having a sculpted face than shading it with makeup. Contouring a la the Kardashians may seem a bit 2014 (it's all about strobing and sun-stripping now…) but taut skin and defined facial features will never date.
Therefore, 'natural contouring' isn't the new take on the trend as such, it's more about the classic you-are-what-you-eat approach to beauty. Frida Harju, in-house nutritionist at health and fitness app Lifesum explains "eating healthily can sometimes help you in the process of obtaining more defined face contours by making your skin more supple and youthful". Sounds like a no-brainer.
Frida's kindly listed eight ways that we can eat our way to killer contours. Pop these on your shopping list.

Best Face Creams for Dry Skin

Jack Frost has officially arrived in much of the country, bringing with him the type of cold that chills bones, chatters teeth, and saps moisture from otherwise well-tended skin. Fortunately, a class of rich, emollient cold-weather creams is here to help. New formulas are all about breathing life back into drained faces—BareMinerals Bare Haven Essential Moisturizing Soft Cream utilizes peptides, ceramides, and amino acids to soften skin and enhance the natural glow hiding beneath the redness, while Shiseido Bio-Performance Glow Revival Cream evens tone and imparts the type of dewy, supple texture that we usually have to wait until spring to experience. Dealing with cracked skin, dry patches, or chapping? We suggest reaching for tried-and-true cult favorites: Egyptian Magic’s simple medley of bee by-products and olive oil is always reliable, as is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, which is basically magic in a bottle.

Depressed? 12 Mental Tricks to Turn It Around

Depression-fighting tips

Medication can help depression. But a type of therapy called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)—which focuses on changing behavior, rather than talking about your childhood, for instance—can be an effective adjuvant to or even substitute for drugs. “It’s much more focused on what you seem to be doing and thinking that is keeping you depressed,” Simon Rego, PsyD, director of psychology training at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. Some of its methods can be practiced at home, on yourself, with no special training. So here are some tips for breaking the cycle of negativity.
