5 ways to get a Clean Face That Will Be the Envy of All within 7 Days
Everyone can relate to that time their complexion starts to clear and another wrinkle or pimple takes residence, and revives the anguish. Surely, you can expect to get a few wrinkles, but why does acne seem to persist into adulthood?
The good thing is you can take control of your complexion and significantly minimize breakouts and aging alike. All you need do is follow a daily routine to help neutralize and prevent them altogether. Here are five ways to get a clean face that will be the envy of all.
1-Follow Basic Skincare Regimen
Clear skin starts with the products you apply to the skin. You don’t have to follow any kind of complicated routine except for three basic products, namely; cleanser, exfoliant, and moisturizer.
Using a gentle cleanser, morning and night—will help remove the excess sebum in your skin. Sebum is the oil that hydrates the skin, but it can also be overproduced and, in turn, block pores. The cleanser will also wash away dirt, grime, sweat, and toxins that have accumulated on the skin, minimizing the threat of clogged pores and breakouts.
You should use a gentle exfoliant twice a week. It will lift dead surface cells away from the skin. The dead cells more than often block pores and prevent healthier, lively skin cells from showcasing themselves.
The third basic product to use is a moisturizer. It helps to soothe and rehydrate your skin. Use one that comes with a sunscreen to protect against dark spots and prevent signs of aging while nourishing the skin.
2-Cut Down On Stress
Changes in your testosterone levels will most times increase sebum production in the skin, which increases the odds of clogged pores. You may also notice that you are more acne-prone when you’ve experienced significant levels of stress. Try to reduce stress and pay closer attention to your cleansing regimen during these periods.
3-Eat And Drink Right
If your skin routinely breaks out after eating certain kinds of food such as milk products or sweets, then you may want to eliminate such foods systematically from your diet to see if your face becomes clearer.
Caffeine and alcohol can both dry out the skin (and dehydrate the whole body). If you drink a lot of coffee or alcohol, you increase your chance of breakouts. Hydrating your entire body however remains the best way to maintain hydrated, clear skin and this will help keep your complexion.
Sugary foods are the biggest offenders because sugar spikes the hormones that produce sebum in the skin, which increases the odds of blocked pores. Try not to eat anything packed densely with sugar, such as cereals, candies, fruit juices, and processed foods.
4-Hygiene Should Be Your Best Friend
Ensure that you wash your skin and rehydrate it whenever you get too sweaty or oily. This is because the dried sweat can clog pores and prevent sebum from being excreted. It’s not bad to cleanse and moisturize more than twice a day, but it’s really only essential when the skin is too oily and requires cleaning.
You should also consider keeping a skin toner on hand to help regulate the oil production in the skin; this may prevent you from getting too oily in the first place. Use it after cleansing, but before moisturizing.
Remember to wash your pillowcases often too given the amount of time your face stays pressed on them. Wash them once weekly, at least, and cleanse your face first thing in the morning to flush away any grime that may have accumulated overnight.
5-See A Dermatologist
If you judiciously follow a skincare regimen and and you still have trouble with pimples and acne, you may want to see a dermatologist to help pinpoint some topical or oral prescriptions that might help clear up your skin—and keep it clear.
10 Rules of Life
10 Rules of Life
Years ago, in the early days of the internet, there was a great site called Global Ideas Bank that was a clearing house for creative ideas to improve society. I can’t find it anymore (though a blog has picked up the idea), but one of the ideas cataloged there was a collection of rules about life. I’d like to pass those rules on with a few of my own.
These rules are rather contrarian. Instead of wise bits of encouragement or a pat on the head, this is tough-love advice that assumes that dealing squarely with reality is the best approach. Each ends with an implied “that’s life—deal with it.”
I’ve added a few comments and quotes.
1. You can’t make people like you. “I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time” (Herbert Bayard Swope).
2. There is no way of getting all you want.Admire without desiring. “My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants” (J. Brotherton).
3. The world is not fair. “Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian” (Shari Barr).
4. Being good often doesn’t pay off. Make good its own reward. “The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it” (General Norman Schwarzkopf).
5. There is no compensation for misfortune. Life isn’t fair, and it doesn’t owe you anything.
6. We don’t control most things. “Risk taking is inherently failure-prone. Otherwise, it would be called sure-thing-taking” (Tim McMahon).
7. All important decisions are made on the basis of insufficient data. “He who postpones the hour of living is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses” (Horace).
8. Each of us is ultimately alone. There is no supernatural friend who is looking out for you, smoothing the way. This can terrify you, or it can empower you. “The most important things, each man must do for himself” (Sheldon Kopp).
9. When you die, that’s it. “Things work out best for those who make the best out of the way things work out.”
10. Most of us in the West are greatly privileged compared to people living in the rest of the world. It’s human nature to complain and look for more, but it is helpful to look up occasionally to appreciate how you fit into the big picture.
A Christian list would typically be more optimistic, and coming from that worldview, I can see how these rules might seem discouraging. To me, however, they simply seem to be a straightforward distillation of reality. It’s better to see life accurately, warts and all, than to live in a delusion.
I like optimistic advice, but I like realistic advice, too. What similar advice would you give as a bracing dose of reality?
Thes are Foods that can give you a body Odour
Yes, you are what you eat, but you are also the odor of what you eat, depending on—ahem—what you eat. Here are the foods to watch for.
Going meatless isn’t just animal-friendly—it may have olfactory benefits as well. In a 2006 study published in Chemical Senses, women rated vegetarian men’s perspiration samples as overwhelmingly more attractive, as opposed to those who had recently consumed red meat. Because red meat is harder to digest, it leaves behind residue in the digestive tract that eventually mingles with bacteria, and then is released in your sweat. As you may know, there are plenty of health reasons to cut out red meat. But if the vegetarian lifestyle is out of the question, you could cut back on beef by eating more white meat like chicken and turkey.
According to Berkeley Wellness, when you consume alcohol, most of it is metabolized by the liver into acetic acid. However, a bit of that alcohol is released through your sweat and your breath (hence breathalyzers). This smell is worse the more you drink, so if you don’t want that distinctive stale bar smell, limit your imbibing. \
As most of us know, fish is seriously great for your health and contains glorious amounts of omega-3s, aka the “good” fat. The downside? A 2007 report in the JAMA Network found that people with an unpleasant body odor tested positive for an inability to break down the food-derived compound (trimethylamine). Folks with this metabolic disorder—called trimethylaminuria—will develop a fishy odor when they eat fish and other high-protein foods.
Despite their health benefits, vegetables that are in the Brassica family—cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli, for example—contain high levels of sulfur. This chemical has a naturally unappealing smell that can worsen your odor. The pungent aroma will escape through your breath, sweat, and, yep, gas. It’s one of the reasons your toots smell so bad. This doesn’t mean you should snub these veggies altogether; boiling them removes most of the stench. You can also add spices like coriander, turmeric, and caraway to level out the sulfuric scent.

Asparagus is mostly known for making urine smell terrible. (Find out why that happens.) Often compared to boiled cabbage, this scent is the result of your body breaking down the sulfuric compound, mercaptan, which can cause your body odor to suffer as well.
Curry And Cumin
You may want to think twice before ordering the tikka masala: Strong spices such as curry and cumin can wreak havoc on your body’s natural odor, according to Medical Daily. This advice rings even truer for pregnant moms; a prenatal diet that regularly includes spices like curry and cumin could possibly affect a newborn’s body odor. Instead, try cardamom, an aromatic seed from the ginger family that leaves behind a much more pleasant aroma.
There’s a reason why “coffee breath” is a marketing tool: Furthermore, the diuretic nature of coffee dries out the mouth, which harbors the growth of bacteria and creates an universally unpleasant smell. According to Andrew Weil, MD, this can extend to your body odor as well. Stimulants like coffee increase the activity of apocrine sweat glands.
It’s safe to say that you don’t have to be an expert nutritionist to know that garlic stinks. This stench can be chalked up to allicin, another sulfuric compound that is released when garlic is cut or crushed. After consumption, it quickly breaks down in the body and converts to other odiferous substances that mingle with bacteria and seep out in your sweat. However, some recent studies have actually indicated that this smell may be construed as sexy by some, so we’ll let you be the judge.
