Watermelon: Heart Fresheners And Lowers Blood Press

Not only fresh, watermelon also contribute in maintaining our health. Such as maintaining blood pressure. Daily dose of watermelon extract can lower blood pressure and improve our arterial function. Efficacy is derived from the amino acid content in watermelon that called L-citrulline. By the body, amino acids will be converted into l arginine.
L-arginine is an important substance in the formation of nitric oxide, which would make the smooth muscles in the arteries to relax so the artery can be opened optimal. The result, blood pressure will drop and, watermelon is a natural source of L-citrulline richest. Pre-hypertension is a pioneer of hypertension or high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for stroke and heart attack. Aortic blood pressure (the largest artery) decreased in the nine participants, plus their artery function also increased. Weaknesses of these findings is that every person needs to consume about a 2 kg of watermelon every day to enjoy his usefulness to decrease their blood press. And it's highly unlikely! So, we can get a daily dose of the extract of some supplements of l-arginine to be easily consumed. We can eat watermelon in a tangible form, and assisted with additional supplements containing arginine. L-arginine supplements are needed to reduce the amount of anti-hypertensive medications required to control blood pressure.

Hair Salons - Things to Consider Before You Have Your New Hair Style

If you want to change your looks, the best way to do it is to have your hair styled. There a lot of hair salons that you can visit if you are looking for a place where you can have a new hair style, but you also need to know that there are a lot of things that you need to consider before you spend your money on it. This article will be explaining to you these things, and will help you choose the best hair salon for you. Reading this article will also prevent you from spending more than what you have allotted, and will ensure that you will always look at your best on a special occasion.

If you are going to have your hair styled, it would be better if you are going for a salon where you have had your previous haircut. This will ensure that you will get better treatment and that the stylist already knows the things that you need for your hair. Changing hair salons every time you will have your haircut is not advisable, because this won't give you a constant look. Aside from this, the salon where you had your previous hair cut already knows the things that you want, so you don't have to trouble yourself in explaining the things that you want to them.

The price that the salon charges you should also be considered when looking for a new hair salon. Aside from this, you also need to consider the things that you need to do in order to achieve the perfect hair style. There are these so-called "wash and wear cuts", and those that would require a lot of time to fix. All of these factors should be considered when looking for a hair salon and a new hair style for you. Something that looks good on you is not always the best option, since you could be spending more to maintain it than what you have expected.

Not all hair salons can give you a great service, so you also need to check the reputation that they have and the reviews that other people are making. Aside from this, you can also search the Internet to gather more information about a particular hair salon. If you are going to visit their website, you will be able to find all the information that you need, and this will help you decide whether they are the best salon for you or not.

Hair Extensions: Do-It-Yourself or Not?

Are you not decided whether to grab a DIY hair extension kit or just head to the salon and have the experts do it for you? Before you decide, you may want to consider a number of things, such as the type of hair extensions you wish to have. Do you want to go with synthetic or the human hair extension? I recommend that you go for the natural human hair extension.

You may discover that human hair extensions are more expensive than synthetic types. However, natural extensions stay longer and endure styling better. Considering that the main purpose of getting hair extensions is to look fabulous naturally, the best way to achieve that goal is to get the type of extensions that best resembles your natural hair. Human hair extensions are more versatile. You can blow dry without melting the strands and dye it without any problems.

If you're more concerned about the price and wanted to be practical, you may want to get the DIY hair extension kit. However, you must be aware that the result of using DIY kits is not as good as having your hair extensions done in a salon.

Below are some points you can ponder on before deciding what type of hair extensions would you want to get:

Salon: Stylists are trained professionals and they exactly know what they are doing.
Do-It-Yourself (DIY): DIY kits are originally designed for salon professionals to make their work faster and easier. You could possibly get the same result, that is, if you follow the instructions carefully.

Salon: They could blend and match the color of the extensions with your natural hair appropriately. Stylists know what colors to mix to get your shade right.
DIY: There are a wide variety of colors to choose from that fits to your own liking.
Tip: If you can't find a shade exactly like your own, choose one that is lighter. You can color them darker to match your own hair but you can not go lighter in dying extensions. Bleaching or other methods of lightening them will cause dryness and, eventually, damage your extensions.

Salon: You just have to sit-back and relax. The stylist will do the rest.
DIY: Reading is a key. Read and follow instructions which are quite simple.

Salon: You could ask tips straight from the professionals. It's easier to clarify concerns with proper care and maintenance.
DIY: Again, read the manual. You can also Google it and search for reviews and videos through the Interenet.

One more thing, in hiring a professional, you will have someone to blame for lousy results, but when you do-it-yourself, you only have yourself to blame! Just kidding!

A lot of DIY extension kits are easy enough for an ordinary person to use. Like salons, they offer a wide variety to choose from synthetic or human extensions, different lengths, colors and textures. All of it still depends on you. Whether you go to a salon or buy a DIY extension kit, it's still your choice that matters.

How to Cut Hair - Anatomy of the Head

It would possibly seem quite questionable initially to talk regarding the basic anatomy of the head in hair creation, but when trying to learn how to cut hair, these things are the techniques needed in order for you to perform your hair styling magic. We will attempt explaining the importance of those points when hair dressing. Knowing the right reference point to any particular area of the head and what these indicate can greatly benefit you in your understanding of what's required so as for you to perform a specific style of hair makeover on any given client, male or female.

Below are the following individual terms that are allocated to particular parts of the head that compile the make of the head and how their directional flow can ultimately affect the haircut.

The Top
This in itself is kind of self explaining, it's the part that is directly behind the forehead and is the uppermost area on the scalp.

The Parietal Ridge
This is the position which describes the top of the head, the area that begins to curve downwards to become the side half of the head. The term parietal ridge really refers back to the bony ridge along the higher side half of the head. The Parietal Ridge begins approximately 3 finger-widths in length from on top of the top part of the ear.

The Temple
The Temples are described as the little areas slightly above and slightly forward of the front of the ears on each side of the head. These are the pulsing points for blood circulation to the brain area and flex points when contracting the facial muscles. When you grit your teeth together and feel them with your fingers, you'll be able to feel the temple muscles below the skin flexing.

The Crown
The Crown half of the head area refers back to the top space towards the higher back half of the skull. The Crown begins at the point where the top of the head begins a curve downwards toward the rear half of the head and ends at the point which is just higher than the occipital bone. It is almost a semi-circular area.

The Occipital Bone
The Occipital Bone is described as a small bone sticking out at the bottom of the skull, positioned where the skull joins up toward the neck. It can be very easily felt through the skin of the scalp at the very bottom center-half area of the skull.

The Nape
The Nape area refers to the areas of the head that start to curve off from the Occipital Bone towards the bottom half hairline of the neck area and continues to the hairline's on each side of the head almost directly behind the ears.

Why Choose a Natural Face Mask Recipe?

If you are somebody who likes to look after themselves, eat right and exercise, then I am sure you also check the lables on the food that you buy in the supermarkets. You probably also try (as far as possible) to buy organic food stuff as you know that many companies add dangerous pesticides, chemical flavorings and colorants to their foods. But I am not so sure if you read the lables of those pots and tubes of shelf-bought facial masks.

You will be shocked to find that many of your favourite products and even the so-called organic products also contain harmful chemicals that not only damage you skin, but is also bad for you health.

These chemical ingredients like propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, parabens and coloring agents like FD & C Yellow and Blue. These ingredients have been researched and can cause allergic reactions, asthma, headaches, nausea and general fatigue.

So you can see that it is important to be aware of what ingredients are used in commercial skin care masks and to make informed decisions when buying them.

The price is irrelevant

Mostly we choose products based on advertising done by the company selling them, because they smell nice or even just because we can afford them. We don't always know that the products we are buying could be bad for us.

If you really care about your skin and your health you will buy from companies who use organic and biodegradable ingredients in their products. So don't just buy a face mask because the packaging is pretty or because it smells nice, buy something you know will be good for you and good for the environment.

Perhaps these products are a little more costly than others because they have natural ingredients and a shorter shelf life due to the fact that they don't contain all kinds of dangerous conservatives.

It's your health that is important

So yes, you can buy great organic soaps, moisturizers, face masks and scrubs, but it is even better to make your own!

In this day and age you can find almost anything on the internet. A simple search will yield many natural facial masks recipes and recipes for other skin care products.

What are the benefits? Here are a few:

o They are cheap to make

o Safe for your body and your skin

o Simple to make

o Ingredients are easy to find and you may even have them already!

Some ingredients commonly used in facial masks recipes include honey, yogurt, green tea and oatmeal.

You will soon find that it is a joy to make your own facial masks as you are truly spoilt for choice. All of the ingredients are totally natural and therefore great for your body and skin. If you do a little research and play around a little you will find a recipe or two that will give you the results you want.

Discovering Various Salon Styling Chairs

Today when a person goes to have something done at a beauty parlor or barber shop, they will find several salon styling chairs that they will sit in. These chairs will raise and lower as well as swivel to allow the stylist to turn up to reach the areas that they need. For some people, the chair helps the stylist to reach their hair in the back.

Many different types of these products are found today in varying styles. Most of the salons will have matching ones where each station will have the same chair as the next. They will have the foot levers that the stylist will use to raise and lower the chair as well.

The design of the chair has only changed slightly over the years. Today they are more compact and smaller than the original ones and most have only a slight recline to them. In addition they will have some ability to recline but not as far bar as those that were originally used in barber shops in the past.

Today different a different chair is used at each location through the store rather than a single chair moving to accommodate the next process. For washing, the person moves to the washing chair and then back to the other chair for the cut or styling that they are having done.

The design of this product is intended to be comfortable for the customer, convenient for the stylist and efficient to clean. It is important to consider that when you are having your hair trimmed, there are pieces that fall onto the floor. It is important when the trim is being done that these locks can fall through the back and onto the floor easily, avoiding the pieces sticking to the back of the customer or the chair.

It is important to understand that there is a difference between a barber chair and a salon chair. While they appear similar when they are positioned in the same way, a barber chair has the ability to recline quite substantially to allow for a customer to get a shave. A salon chair typically does not recline this far back as there are separate units that are used for the cutting process and the washing process.

A variety of different types and colors are available today. Many of the salons use a uniform color for each station. Most times the chairs will be a solid color with a silver base. Whether the base is round or if there are actual legs will depend on the overall design of the chair. Most in chain type salons will be all the same from place to place.

The use of salon styling chairs is a practice that goes back for many, many years. Barbers of course were the first to use this type of chair in a period of time when barbers served as the local dentist and doctor as well as the barber. Today there are many more choices for a person to have a comfortable seat while having their hair done.

Use Alpha Hydroxy Face Cream For A Home Chemical Peel

If you have heard the term "chemical peel" then you are probably looking at an application that contains a solution of alpha hydroxy acid. Cosmetologists are allowed to use concentrations of up to 30%, but the consumer cannot purchase over the counter alpha hydroxyl face creams that contain over 10%. The chemical peel works much like microdermabrasion, which eliminates fine lines and smoothing the skin so it feels soft and supple. Doctors may use concentrations of up to 70% to remove scars and deeper wrinkles. With any amount of solution there is risk of skin rashes and reaction, so if you are trying it yourself at home for the first time, be sure to follow the instructions carefully.

Alpha hydroxy acids come in a variety of skin care products, from exfoliants, moisturizers, cleansers, eye cream, and foundations. Once you have tested for sensitivity it is probably best not to combine other cosmetics and creams that contain alpha hydroxy acids, unless, like me you have skin like elephant hide! Save your money on skin cleansers, by the way, that contain alpha hydroxy acids because it needs to stay on the skin for quite a long time before it can dissolve the top layer of skin and be effective.

I have tried any number of skin treatments to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as any woman knows; it takes a long time to find the right cosmetics to best suit her skin. I use an alpha hydroxy face cream three to four times as week and leave it on for about half an hour, it does sting a little so you are unlikely to forget about it. I simply wash it off and apply my favorite moisturizer - which doesn't contain any alpha hydroxy acid. Once or twice a week I will use a facial scrub before using the alpha hydroxy face cream.

All I can say is it works very well on my skin and many wrinkles and fine lines have disappeared. I had a deep crease down the side of my face that has all but disappeared too. Whether that was the moisturizer I use that did it, I don't know, but the alpha hydroxy cream leaves my face smooth and soft. I was a smoker for far too many years also, and the lines above my upper lip are lessening too, possibly from quitting smoking and with a little help from the alpha hydroxyl face cream I'm sure.

A 1.05 oz. tube of the brand I use doesn't cost a lot, I have had this tube for quite a few months and there's still plenty in it - you don't need a lot - this brand suggests a "pearl sized drop". Using too much of anything does not make it more effective, it simply wastes money.

For an alpha hydroxy face cream to be effective it must penetrate the skin and be left on the skin for a length of time, the stronger the solution the quicker it should be removed. Typically, a chemical peel done under the supervision of a doctor or cosmetologist will not last more than a few minutes before skin damage may occur, including soreness and redness, and blistering that can last for days afterwards.
