Very often the best ways to treat acne aren't that hard to understand. The moment one realizes it’s merely a matter of perseverence and patience the treatment is halfway done already. To ban bars of soap is one of those pretty easy ways to fight acne. Bars of soap, in order to remain bars, contain thickeners that could clog the pores of your skin. They also disturb the balance of the skin, because soap nearly contains double the amount of pH compared with that in the skin. Certain bacteria will love that, but I’m sure you won’t. They also remove the natural oils that could prevent the loss of water. So, first things first, stop wrinkle up the forehead: don’t whittle down with water and ban the bar, and a clean face isn’t far.
Blood drenched earth of many an ancient field or arena must have been the cradle of trophies and awards. Being markers of vehemently victories and, consequently, deplorable defeats. What makes it interesting is to see how the esteem for the achievement itself more or less remained unchanged till this very day. It’s the actual shape of the reward that got from a simple laurel wreath to very expensive silver chalices adorned with jewels, the granting of precious land or slaves, to the contemporary mass produced easy-to-forget trivial trinkets. And easily forgotten they are, collecting dust. Perhaps time to re-introduce the laurel once more?
I admit, this isn’t in Abu Dhabi, but close enough to become reality in AD one day. Like any sand blasting this could remove a few (skin deep) irregularities. This particular ‘sand papering’ was free of charge, but not highly recommandable.
Not that long ago, I mentioned to smile a lot to prevent wrinkles. And likely you remember it wasn’t all just a prank. But the moment wrinkle removers are mentioned, it’s another ball game. To me, the word ‘removers’ usually stands for rough and tough. In respect to wrinkle removers, it stands for ‘those that have plenty of butter can lay it on thick’. Because the few real working treatments: application of retinol, the use of carbon dioxide lasers or injecting a form of hyaluronic acid don’t sound cheap to me. And they’re all three not a lasting solution as well. That doesn’t give me much reason to smile. But the more reason to stick to more easy and pretty effective ways to fight wrinkles within reach, before starting a rush for a remover.
One face that still stands in the crowd is Errol Flynn’s. He would have been 101 years old this year. To my surprise I haven’t been able to find any clip of him with a scar, despite all the duels in his films. Although, there’s a scar at the end of this clip, on the face of his competitor, ofcourse.
Scars usually don’t add up to attraction, except perhaps if you’re a pirate? Especially when the face is concerned, we humans are very particular about our looks. It has very likely to do with the idea that our face is the most personal feature that makes us stand out in the crowd.
To have a scar in the face has to be a constant reminder. If you’re very unfortunate, scars caused by acne ought to be some kind of double punishment. I’m not sure an acne scar cream might be of much help in such a case. But what scares me even more are the available treatments having names like injections, surgery, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion and fractional laser therapy. What they stand for gives me a twitch in the face and a weird feeling in the stomach. But I’m sure loads of people will be very happy with these possibilities. Wearing a big smile.
Once you’ve started to worry about how to get rid of wrinkles it might be too late. But, like with many more daily grinding-the-teeth troubles, there’s still hope for a rather simple and inexpensive solution. If not to blaze those obnoxious things totally out of the saddle, then at least to soften the pain of grief or frustration. The possible cure: laughter. Don’t laugh. I’m serious. Laughter seems to trigger the release of endorphins (feel-good chemicals). They even can relieve pains temporarily. Let alone to smooth out a few futile folds. To quote Milton Berle: ‘laughter is an instant vacation’. As far as I know, a smile doesn’t need a ticket reservation and it’s all free fun.
There’s the punch line ‘some guys have all the fun’. This clip shows that some girls have all the luck. That a pound too many isn’t always carrying a weight of doubt. I’m not so sure about that car though.
The biggest obstacle in your quest for good fat burners is staring you in the face each morning standing in front of the mirror. That is, if you still have one. Fat isn’t Fab, right? Or, ruthless as it is, you might have mastered a way to avoid a glimpse too long by turning a temporary blind eye? Funny enough, that same rigid stubborn body could be the best fat burner available you can lay your hands on. Ever. And you can sense the dreadful If’s coming? Then you’re right.
There’s a magic formula, write it on that dimmed mirror with your finger if you please: Action = Reaction! If you eat all things you like, but in all modesty and honesty, if you get your butt moving, and all the rest attached to it, without any of that modesty and hold on to it, for once, you got yourself a pretty good deal. And a pretty good body. Pretty good idea, no? (good this isn’t a film in slow motion: you would see me falling on the bed in despair with rolling eyes and love handles)...
In a perfect world we won’t have to bother at all. There have been occasions though that I was thinking such perfection might become boring. In other words: lets make the best of this imperfect world that we call our own. And appreciate it. In search for an answer of a current problem that bothered me, I found one. But for another question. Then again, anaemia, my ‘conception’ that started this whole thing, seems to have a link with pregnancy. That’s why I ended up with the best prenatal vitamins lately. Not that I think I might need them, but apparently most women with a child wish are advised to take them even before they get pregnant.
And that’s where the imperfect world sways in again. I’ve been told that half of all pregnancies are not planned. Despite this imperfection, most babies are as cute and healthy as perfumed puppies. So, who was mentioning an imperfect world? Oh, yeah, that was me. Nobody’s perfect.
For the reason of staff ‘fluctuation’ I got an unexpected transfer from Dubai to Abu Dhabi this past week. Hence explained my silence. I can tell you the trip wasn’t that glamorous as this 2008 Ferrari Parade from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Although I wonder if all participants have survived because of the open convertibles? A not very wise thing to do, I can assure you. And I have made it to what seems to be my final and new destination, although the desert looks as dry as in Dubai. So do the streets and buildings. I’m curious about the differences. If I know, I’ll keep you informed.
