Naomi Wants Ethnic Models!

Internationally known supermodel Naomi Campbell addressed the crowd and the fashion designers during a news conference at Berlin Fashion Week.

"Fashion Week New York may start by the end of the week, I hope that all the designers will consider using models of colour. Because as we have seen in the last two years, models of colour have not been used on the runways or just in a minute way. So let's hope that everyone could also let fashion not discriminate the models and the colour of the models that they use."

Shoking Proof: The Real Reason Why You're Fat!

"The Reason You Can't Lose Weight has Nothing to Do With Your Will-Power, Over-Eating or the Right Diet! ... The Reason You are Fat and Unhealthy is Because You Have Disgusting Plaque and Horrible Little 'CRITTERS' Living in Your Guts!"

"...And Now I'm Going to Show You How to Get Rid of All of It so You Can Shed 10 lbs, 25 lbs, 50 lbs even 100 lbs or more - and Keep It Off FOREVER!!"

Ask yourself ...

Do you really want all this junk living inside your guts?

This is harmful Plaque (below) - Everybody has it. But to keep from getting sick and to be able to maintain a healthy body weight you MUST get rid of it now!

If you don't, it will eventually cause you to not be able to lose weight (regardless of how much you diet and exercise!) and eventually it will kill you!

These are harmful Parasites (below) - Everybody has them. If left to live and breed inside your stomach, small and large intestines and colon, they will eventually cause you to puff up, gain lots of weight, get sick more often, and take many, many years off your life!

They use your body as a 'Food Storehouse' and so they can live and breed by the millions. But now it's time to flush them out and down the toilet for good. If you don't they will just make you fatter and much, much sicker!

Would you trust anything living in your bowels that has teeth but NO eyes?

Nail Care For Men

Boys do look at girls' nail. It is a big turn off if they saw the girl's toes with not so decent toe nails. But wait, girls look at boys' nails too! It is as much as important for girls to see that boys pay attention to their nails too. Bottom line is: nail care is part of good grooming!However, most boys will just have their nails trimmed and that's it! Their on the go! Because for them they only use their nails for three all-purpose activities: scratching, typing, and picking...uhm¡¦just picking!Anyhow, boys don't need fancy nails for such simple finger fare. In fact, shredded cuticles seem to improve the overall male scratching experience. So why fix what ain't broke? Because you have to keep them healthy and good-looking.It's just so easy. You don't have to spend that much in nail care salons and pamper with expensive hand spa. All you need is roughly $2. And it's good for how long? 3 or 4 months?! You spend less with equal results. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

It is essential and stops nail from breaking or splitting and makes them look better, so file them all to the same length. Start your manicure by trimming your nail with the scissors or clippers. As a general grooming rule, nail shouldn't be more than one-eighth of an inch or 3.175 millimeters in length. Trim only the tips of your nail and not the sides, or you risk hangnail hell. When you're done, your nail should be flat-topped.

Use the emery board to round the corners of your nail and file them down to a comfortable length. Then switch to the three-way nail buffer.

Use nail file to smooth away nail ridges and irregularities. A three-way nail file is a sturdy, rectangular block of foam that has been coated with one polishing surface and two grades of abrasive: typically, fine grit and very fine grit. Each surface is marked and color-coded for easy identification. Nail file also come in four-way (three abrasive surfaces) and six-way (five abrasive surfaces) models.

Use the fine grit surface to buff across the nail from side to side with gentle, even strokes. Leave the deepest of the ridges or you'll buff away the entire nail.

Next, gently buff with the fine grit surface for a soft, matte luster. Again, buff from side to side and don't use too much muscle. A few gentle but rapid strokes with the polishing surface, at the end, will create an attractive glossy finish.
Do once a week this will increase the circulation and oxygen in the nails. Do for about two minutes each session and be careful to apply firm pressure but don't be to hard, which can damage the nail.

Cuticle is the outermost layer of skin that protrudes a short way above the nail surface. It is attached to the nail. When the nail grows, the cuticle often becomes distended, at which point it dries and shreds.
Damaged cuticles should never be removed. Cuticles are barriers that keep the nail fungus from entering the body between the nail and skin. They should also not be allowed to overgrow, since this retards nail growth.Instead, cuticles should be "pushed back." To do this, apply a few drops of cuticle oil along the crescent-shaped edge at the bottom of each nail, where the cuticle and nail connect. Let the oil sit for a minute or two to soften the cuticle. Then use a cotton ball to firmly push the cuticle back, in the direction of your uppermost finger joint. Snip away any errant pieces of dead skin with your nail clipper, and you're done.
You can push back your cuticles every day, between weekly trimming and buffing. That should keep your home manicure in excellent repair from day to day ? and your social agenda on track during those in-between hours.

Through our nails, we would know what vitamin deficiency we have. If you have any of the following then you need to change your diet. You have to nourish nails from within.
  • Lack of vitamin A and calcium indicates dryness and brittleness.
  • Lack of protein, folic acid and vitamin C causes hang nails.
  • White bands across the nails mean a protein deficiency.
  • A lack of sufficient hydrochloric acid can cause splitting nails.
  • Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to dryness, very rounded and curved ends or darkeningof nails.
  • Zinc deficiency can cause white spots on the nails.
  • Red skin around cuticles indicates poor metabolism of essential fatty acids.

Breast Checks!

Women's breasts change in size and how they feel due to menstrual cycles, pregnancy, and weight gain or loss. All women should be aware of how their breasts feel. Generally, changes in a breast are normal, but occasional changes can be found which can be the early signs of breast cancer.

Most lumps or changes are not caused by cancer. Any changes that you find in your breasts should always be checked by a doctor. Early detection of breast cancer is the key to successful treatment and survival.

You can go to see a doctor to have a routine breast check done, but it may also be worthwhile to do regular checks of your breasts yourself. Other ways that breast cancer can be found include regular mammograms (x-ray examinations, which are usually only done when a woman is over 40 years old) and ultrasound examinations.

REMEMBER: According to doctors, women with oversized breast and women with undersized breast size are most prone to cyst, which can be cancerous.

How to do a check:

  • Feel each breast from the collarbone at the top to the bra-line at the bottom, and from midway between your breasts to an imaginary line down from the middle of your armpit.
  • When you are feeling your breasts, use the flat part of your fingers including the sensitive finger pads. Move your fingers in small circles at every spot you touch.
  • Start from your armpit and work up and down in vertical strips across your whole breast. The time this will take will depend on your breast size.
  • You should use two different levels of pressure, both light and firm.
  • To feel lightly, put your fingers together and flat and make the first circle with light pressure, firm enough just to make a slight dent in the skin. This will enable you to feel anything just below the surface.
  • At the same spot make a second circle pressing quite firmly so that you can feel any deep lumps in your breast. Press as firmly as you can without any discomfort.

Feel or look for :
The following changes may not be due to breast cancer, but it is important that you see your doctor straight away if you find any of these changes.

  • a breast lump
  • a skin rash or itching
  • changes in the color of the skin
  • puckering, roughness or dimpling of the skin
  • retraction (pulling in) of the nipple
  • discharge or leaking from the nipple
  • pain anywhere in the breast
  • any change from the usual look of either breast
  • swelling or discomfort in the armpit.
