How to get rid of stretch marks?

How to get rid of stretch marks?
Can you get rid of stretch marks? This question sounds quite simple, yet the answer is not so easy at all! If you would ask ten skin specialists this question, you are very likely to get back ten different answers, spread all across the board!

On one side of the stretch mark debate are those skin specialists who believe that the answer to the question “can you really get rid of stretch marks” is a definite “no”. The various reasons behind this firm rejection is most often being associated with collagen. A lot of skin specialists out there believe that once collagen is being / has been decreased in a specific area of the body, there is no way to regenerate that collagen which in effect would prevent the skin to properly heal and being restored to its normal elasticity.

On the flip side of the stretch mark debate are the (positive minded) skin specialists who believe that stretch marks certainly CAN be fixed. There have been reports from several tests which seem to indicate that it IS possible to rebuild the level of collagen in our beloved skin. These tests show us as well that it doesn’t take extremely intense prescription drugs to rebuild the collagen in our skin. Many people, in particular pregnant women, have reported a reduction in their stretch marks after they used common products in the likes of  Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks and similar specialized products. These kind of products usually cost less than €4,00 (or 5 US dollar) and are widely available just about anywhere products for the skin are sold, both in retail shops and on the internet.

Moisturizing the skin is in most cases a very helpful preventive measure against the formation of those ugly stretch marks. And since the world of skin specialists is still largely divided on this very subject, you will basically need to decide for yourself which side of the debate you want to believe. I would say, give the stretch mark products a fair chance and see what happens. One thing is sure, it won’t hurt you nor your skin!

How to change your life by thinking differently

Isn't it about time to get serious about your life? What do you really want to have accomplished in let's say 10 years from now? And how do you reach those goal? A good start is by starting to think differently. What I mean by that is that positive, constructive thought can change your luck and your entire life!

Changing the way you think to change your life: a real powerful and proven successful tool that is used by millions of people who are truly successful in life. Not only on financial level, but also in relationships, health, enjoying life, ...

I love inspirational and motivational material. I read books about it, listen to audio books, I even have all kinds of inspirational quotes hanging all around my home. In particular those type of quotes that ring a bell and cause an A-HA! kinda feeling. I'm sure you know which ones I mean and they're probably quite different for every other individual.

Lately I have come across a few very good ones that have really stroke base with me and they all inspired, and continue to inspire me to change my thoughts. Direct my thought in such a way that they allow me to change my life for the better and keeping me motivated to continue doing so, so I thought I would share a few with you on my own private space deep down this massive web of information and maybe in this way I'm able to pass on some sparks to you as well!

The first inspirational quote is by Keri Russell:
Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can change your life forever
This is actually very true in my own life... Sometimes I make big decision that really don't make much of a difference. But when it comes to a lot of smaller decisions I make, the impact seems to be quite enormous in many cases! Does this happen to you as well?

The following quote by Albert Einstein is one of my favorites:
Everything is energy. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It;s not philosophy, it's physics.
This quote basically comes down to what you think is what you get or also known as the universal law of attraction as extensively described in books and film versions of The Secret, What the bleep! (down the rabbit hole) and more of such.

And the third and (for now) last one is by Thomas Edison, a quote I personally use a lot to pull positive energy from moments that are not quite successful...:
I haven't failed; I just found 10,000 ways that won't work!
Great one isn't it? I will be updating this blog article regularly with new inspirational quotes, so keep my blog bookmarked okay?!

New advances in tattoo removal

We all make certain decisions in our lives that we may, gently or harshly, regret at some later instance. Like that time a friend I knew in college got a Chinese tattoo that she thought meant "Happiness" but really translated into "Underwear"... Not good at all! So, what happens when you've had enough of your body art, and want to get it removed?

Dermatologists recommend the route that Heidi Klum is taking, having a tattoo professionally removed with a laser. The supermodel started the tattoo removal process since she split with ex-lover Seal. It seems like she yet has to go a long way on tattoo removal highway, yet slowly but surely we are able to see a faint distinction from how it was before.

In case you're wondering how this tattoo removal with laser technology actually works, in this article I'm providing you with some answers to your questions.

One of the foremost common choices, and least invasive of all tattoo removal option available is doing so through this method of laser tattoo removal. After the tattoo affected skin has been made numb, the tattoo removal laser targets the ink particles on the inside of the skin cells, drawing the ink out of the skin cells where they are recognized as being "foreign", after which they are eliminated by the body, taken away as trash by the blood stream. What happens is that your body's own response acknowledges that the ink does not belong there and your vascular system gets rid of the the ink particles, and that is why the tattoo slowly fades away over a period of time.

So now there's quite a bit of exciting news within the world of tattoo removal: There is a brand new next-gen tattoo removal laser coming along that is higher in intensity, faster, and multiple times more effective than its predecessors.

It's known as the PicoSure laser by a company called Cynosure. This all new "it" tattoo removal laser is far better in breaking up the ink underneath the skin because it works more precise. There's higher clearance with fewer required treatments, which is certainly beneficial for our wallet's health! The PicoSure tattoo removal laser uses a shorter light-pulse (a stunning trillionth of a second compared to traditional "old fashion" lasers that use pulses in one billionth of a second.

This is wonderful news for those among us who walk around with a tattoo which is rather wished away then admired upon... And I know there are a lot of you who are in that position! So now it's a matter of waiting until a tattoo removal clinic near you buys one of those next-gen laser mahines and you'll finally have the best reason ever to get that nasty old tattoo removed once and for all!

Eternal youth and the developments
in the world of anti aging
Isn't it true that everyone looks to stay forever young? The sweet pursue of eternal youth is however a very controversial and much debated issue. Real eternal youth is just a fairy tale, yet large corporations in the beauty and health industry make billions every year selling products that claim to extend beauty life-span, health life-span and yes, even our complete life-span in overall sense. You may think of cosmetic products in the likes of NIVEA Cellular Anti Aging, a product that is able to rejuvenate the skin. This specific innovative anti aging (or rather reverse aging) skin care product has a proven success rate, but it doesn't actually make you younger on all fronts. Products in this category just slow down the aging process. At the end, we will all grow older willingly or unwillingly.

When we live healthy and do everything we can to stay that way, sometimes the question why do we die? arises. Eternal youth is a fairy tale and the fact that our inner and outer body grows older is simply something we have to accept. But...we can do a lot to slow that process down!

Aging & Eternal youth
In order for you to be able to live longer while staying young, you should first need to understand the following: There are many causes of death. In fact, and this may sound stunning, there are relatively very few people who actually die a truly natural death, most of us will die because of accidents, disease, crime, natural disasters and other causes.

The percentage of people who die as a result of non-natural events has steadily gone up throughout the past forty years. Worldwide polution has gone up, natural disasters happen more often and crime-rates are high throughout the world. On average, the worldwide average of natural deaths is around 43%. In developed countries that percentage is higher (such as Netherlands 67% or Singapore 63%) while developing nations have a much lower percentage of natural deaths (such as Thailand 26% or China 31%).

The next sections of this blog post give you more extensive information on current developments in the field of anti aging and eternal youth. Don't miss out ya!

Clit piercing guide (clitoris piercings)

Many gals out there, like me, are very attracted to the idea of a clit piercing (阴蒂穿刺 / 음핵 피어싱) But how safe is it? Does it have any implications on your love life? Does it hurt? And many more of these question quickly arise when the thought of a clitoral piercing comes to mind. In this clitoral piercing guide I will answer a few of these questions.

Clitoris piercing:
Vertical clitoral hood piercing
How safe is a clit piercing?

To be totally and utterly frank and fair, yes there is a certain risk of infection involved if you decide to have your clitoris pierced,  when piercing any body part in fact. Therefor my advice is to make certain you continually clean your outer vagina, and especially your clitoris area with mild antiseptic until it's fully healed from the piercin. Up till the moment your clitoris is 100% healed, it will still be somewhatred and swollen up, sore, and a bit tender. Your skin may get irritated from wearing lingerie, and it can even tear if the piercing gets caught in the mazes of the fabric.
Clit piercing schematic

Does it hurt to get a clitoris piercing?

Yes, for sure it hurts. Prepare yourself to go through a little hell if you really want a clit piercing because it sort of like feels as if your are being shot with a bullet. Okay girls, now don't get scared too much because that's all very temporary. Most of the pain fades away within 15 minutes, but you will keep a sore clitoris for at least a week orso. During this week, better even two to three weeks: don't have sex! Don;t even let you boy (or girl)friend touch it.

My own clit piercing
Does a clit piercing enhance the sex?

Some women with the experience of having their clitoris pierced, which includes myself, say that it definitely increases the sexual pleasure due to the piercing friction against you sensitive areas. Having said that, everyone's different and not all women do enjoy the feeling of a piece of jewelery sticking in such a private part of the body. You may think it would feel very exciting and turn you and your boyfriend on, and in my case that is certainly true... However you have to be up for it! A clit piercing is really a thing if you already have a bit of kinky in your soul. But I can say, if you give yourself a little time to adapt, a clit piercing is a real enjoyable thing to have!

Ready to go ahead? Let me know how it went!

Update: Clit piercing (and nipple piercing) experience of Katie

When you take note of all the problem reports around clit piercings you're very easy to get scared away by the whole idea, and to tell you the simple truth, most piercers won't even do the real clitoris because most women don't have a large enough one... opt for the bonnet and you're A-OK. I known as around and requested about excellent standing, because the position I had initially gone to for my mouth had shifted. I finished up going to Cincinnati Human tattoo designs and Striking. There were many individuals in there, which reaffirmed the point that they were well-known and reliable.

The guy at the top part requested me what kind of jewelry I desired, and I select a 14g band for my nipple area, and the same for my bonnet. When I went returning to be pierced, I had the proprietor of the studio room who has been doing piercings for over 35 yrs, which was a comfort to me. (You definitely don't want someone messing up on those piercings!) He informed me that what I select for my nipple area was the best, and that it was a little larger because you wouldn't want an preliminary band too little because of the inflammation. He was very expert, I didn't experience uncomfortable at all. He put the clamps on, I got my leg and the seat, and took a breathing and BAM, it was in. He informed me that I was one of the best he has had as far as not shifting, and it was probably because it didn't harm so bad. Although it harm a little more intense than my mouth piercing, it sensed like a little difficult perform that is maybe just a tad more than you would actually like.

Next was the clitoris piercing, and he informed me that most individuals tell him that it's not as bad. He informed me that instead of the band I select that the weights would be better for me because I perform activities and that it wouldn't get in the way. He also informed me that a straight piercing would be better for my figure shape. He said that he was going to put it a little bit to the part because I had a line of considering that he didn't want to hit. So I lay down and he put the clamps on. OMG I believed this affects like hell! He relaxed up the clamps for me, and that was a lot better. But the expectation in my go was dreadful, because I kept considering, 'ok, if those clamps harm that bad, what is the piercing going to experience like?' I got onto the desk and he informed me to take a breathing...I did and WHAM! It was all I could do to not shout. I muttered O MY GOD, as I'm sure every line of considering in my throat instantly separated itself. It harm SO BAD. It harm so bad that all the flexing that I did when he put the hook thru, created holes run down my sight (not weeping, just watering) BUT! I am not saying this to prevent you from doing it, I am merely informing you the real testimony to my tale. He took the clamps off and it sensed almost like nothing occurred. The piercing did not get captured, and I just went and sat in the car, forced house and went out that evening. All I have to do is clean both piercings out twice a day with regular anti-bacterial detergent...can't get any simpler than that!

I can say though, that I will get a weights once my nipple area cures, it is difficult to keep the band from getting captured on factors. But my guidance to you is that although I haven't gotten the opportunity to use them yet, they are wonderful. For the quantity of fast discomfort, it was definitely value it. I wish that my tale may have assisted you out a bit, and that it will persuade you to get it done.

How to gain weight fast and cheap!

As a genetically slim person, previously weighing around 48 kg, I was eager to find a healthy way to put on some weight, cheap, fast and effective. A friend of mine advised me the following, which I did for 4 weeks and gained about 4 kg, which is good enough for me.

What I did to gain weight fast and cheap
Here's the trick, you need both fats and carbo's at the same time. Your body fat will increase faster if you take those together. That's why hamburgers are so fattening...They contain A LOT of FAT and A LOT of CARBO.

Now, don't rush to your local Mickey D. just yet, because fast food is very bad for you to say the least! The better way is to choose something that is healthy, easily digestible and delicious. Here's what I found is the best food for this: Banana shake!

Gain weight fast and cheap with banana shakes
What I did was buy 6 full bananas (carbo) every day, you should blend those six bananas (500 calories) together with half a liter full-cream milk (fat, 400 calories), add about two tablespoons of sugar (the body turns sugar into energy and the left-overs into fat). I took the banana shake every day on top of my regular diet, adding around 1100 calories (or 130 grams of body fat. That's a kilo per week!

So if you're looking to gain weight fast and cheap then this is really the ultimate solution!

Satin and silk pajamas are ideal for romantic moments

Men simply -love- to see women wearing satin or silk. The sexy female often turns them on, which can mean a good start for a night full of love!

The discovery of silk in ChinaAccording to legend, in 2400 BC, silk was discovered in the garden of Emperor Huang Ti. Tradition has it that his wife Huang Ti Xi Lingshi asked what kind of animal was feeding on her mulberry trees. They discovered that the one guilty for that were white worms who would spun shiny cocoons. The wife dropped a cocoon in hot water by accident and she noticed she could pull a thread from it. Lingshi Xi had discovered silk. The next 2000 years, the making of silk remained a Chinese secret. If anyone would tell, they would suffer the death penalty.

Quick tutorial: How to make your own ear candles

[Note: For more information abour ear candlin you may want to read the Wikipedia Ear Candlin page]

A lot of folks wonder if it's possible to to make your own ear candles. Well let me tell you you definitely can, and it's fairly easy as well! I make my ear candles myself as well and use them for ear candling on a weekly basis.

How to make your own ear candles?
What are ear candles? And what is ear candling?
Like the name suggests, ear candles are long, special paper based cones. You place one side in your ear and burn the ear candle from top to about 5 centimeter down to the bottom. Doing this allows your ears to be cleaned out of grease, dirt and other things that prevent clean, proper working ears. Ear candling is good to do at least twice a month, I do it once a week myself. As long as you don't burn the candle to the utmost bottom down, ear candling is safe.

When you make your own ear candles you should keep in mind that you are taking your safety into your own hands. The risk of burning is somewhat increased when using homemade ear candles due to the increased thickness of the candles. But if you're careful, you should be alright  Making your own ear candles is fun and after a few completed homemade ear candles you actually start to get a real appreciation of the skill going into a well crafted ear candle.

Homemade ear candles - What you need...
To start making your own DIY ear candles you will need:
  • Bee-wax, soy, or paraffin
  • Olive oil
  • Unbleached cotton strips
    About 2 centimeter wide
    About 20 centimeters long
  • A wooden dowel
  • A piece of sandpaper
  • A knitting needle
  • A small pan
  • Plastic wrap
  • Scissors
  • Some ice water
Preparations for making your own ear candles

For the dowel, be certain it is tapered at one end but not necessarily pointy. We're going to make the end of the ear candle into a shape that will fit quite comfortably into your outer ear canal, the ear candle will actually adapt the shape of your dowel. Use the sandpaper to smoothen the wooden dowel. Use a thick knitting needle tfor the opening because they are about the same thickness as we want the opening to be.

As for the wax you need about 3 ounces per ear candle, heat the wax in a pan on low fire (don't let it get too hot!). Put the olive oil in a bowl.

Instructions for how to make your own ear candles
Let's start to make your ear candles!

Put the wax to heat and stir until melted. Thin out the wax you may add with little amounts olive oil. Don’t use too much. Plut a piece of cotton into the wax and let it soak. Coat the dowel with some of the oil as well. Take the soaked cotton out and let the excess wax drip off.

Once the cotton is coated with wax, you will need to wrap it around the dowel. Start at the bottom / narrow end and work your way up. You should overlap the cotton round on round, overlapping it by about a third each round. Wrap enough cotton strips to cover the entire dowel, usually around three pieces. Wrap it nice tightly to make sure there are no gaps in the ear candle.

Upon hardening of the wax, gently slide if off the rdowel. Now, use the scissors to trim the ends a little.

All done! We just created our own ear candle. It may take you a few times before you really get the hang of it but once you got it in your fingers, it's really easy and fun! Enjoy the ear candling!

And moreover, are dedicated to put only natural components into your body, which is ultimately what makes your body the most healthy.

I don't really mind being called a "greenie", but the choice between smelly armpits and the risks that come with rolling unhealthy toxins onto my outer layer on a daily basis turned into quite a dilemma. My girlfriend (yes, girlfriend) works a nine-to-five job and would previously cover herself with the contents of fancy branded aerosol spray-cans filled with toxic scents. So what's the alternative? A natural, home-made deodorant that actually works and even smells quite nice!

And the best part is... This is way cheaper then all those chemical brand products you find in the hyper market! Tell me more, Gizz!! Okay, how can you make your own homemade deodorant?

Bleeding during or after sex

This question has been send in by one of my blog readers, Amanda:
How is it possible that I sometime bleed during or after intercourse?
There are several causes for bleeding during or after sexual intercourse. For the first time you're having sex, it's certainly not abnormal. Definitely go to your doctor if you continue to suffer from blood loss though, it may be something that is wrong and you should have it checked if the bleeding continues after two or three times after your first intercourse.

Vaginal bleeding after intercourse can have several causes, including (but not limited to):

  • Use of hormonal contraception
  • Injury in conjunction with an abnormal blood clotting
  • Rough intercourse while your vagina isn;t wet and relaxed enough
  • Inflammation as a result of an STI or STD (in particular, Chlamydia)
  • Polyp of the cervix
  • Cervical cancer
  • Lesions in the cervix
  • Forceful entry / rape
  • Intercourse below the age of 12

The first time of sexual intercourse is often associated with vaginal bleedingduring and/or afterwards the sex. This usually happens and is very normal. It may be because the intercourse went stiff making the vagina irritated to the "sudden" new experience of a penis entering. It may also be that a piece of the hymen (hymen) has started to bleed.

The blood loss may be small (a few drops) to be massive. Sometimes there is pain or burning feeling involved as well. Do you frequently suffer from bleeding during sex, then go for a consultation with your doctor.

For this face mask we'll use very ripe bananas. You will need one medium sized banana for each mask, a fresh lemon and about two tablespoons of honey. Mix the banana and the honey in a blender. When the substance is mashed up add about ten drops of lemon juice and mix it all for another few seconds. Take a few tissue papers and soak them in the banana face mask mash. Then apply to cover your face fully (keep your eyes and nose holes free) and let it sit for about 20 minutes. After that, remove the mask and rinse your face with a warn washcloth. You can apply moisturizer for a maximum effect after that.

Acne / Pimples face mask DIY
For the treatment of Acne face skin, this is an ideal mask. You will need: one aspirin pill, 2 tablespoons of organic olive oil, a fresh lemon and a tablespoon of honey. Crush the aspirin pill to powder and mix it with the honey, olive oil and about five drops of lemon juice. After the Acne-mask substance is ready you take a few tissue papers and soak them with the substance. Apply to your face for about 15 minutes, remove the mask and rinse your facial skin with a warm wash cloth. This mask is ideal to remove pimples.

Healing face mask for Acne scars
Acne can leave nasty scars on your face which can be very embarrassing. The Onion-Oatmeal face mask helps to reduce Acne scars and makes your skin softer and smoother. The recipe comes originally from Julie Gabriel. The onion is used as an anti inflammatory while the pores of your facial skin are deeply cleansed by the oatmeal. You may add a tablespoon of honey to the mashed onion (half a piece) and the oatmeal (two tablespoons) to get an even better result. This will also keep the mashed onion and oatmeal stick to your skin. Leave this mask on for 30 minutes for a maximum result.

Hair loss after pregnancy

During a pregnancy many things in a woman’s life take a different route then normal. When you look further then the obvious physical changes, you may also notice changes in other parts of the female body. Changes in skin and joints… and the hair as well. The hair can change in thickness or even temporarily go into hair loss mode. The hormones that are associated with pregnancy (for example oxitoxine) sometimes cause seemingly awkward changes in the female body, in some cases even before a pregnancy test is being done. The influence of hormones starts from the moment of conception.

Many pregnant women notice that their hair becomes thicker, more shiny, and getting an increased volume. But the exact opposite also happens in some other cases. If you're pregnant you can get back to your normal hair state during your pregnancy. Dry hair can be battled with a good hair conditioner, although breaking hair may be more difficult to avoid. Hair usually breaks a few centimeters from the root.

Many pregnant women also complain about hair loss. This is usually not during, but after the pregnancy. This is temporary, it should become up to normal again after two to three weeks.
