5 Minutes To Silky Smooth Skin

May 18th, 2013 · No Comments

Every woman wants smooth, soft skin, but not every woman knows how to get it easily. Silky smooth skin has a luxurious feel to it, and is extremely sensual and sexy. No wonder we all want it so bad! We want it because of how it makes us feel, and our partners want it because of how it feels to them.

Most Spas provide some sort of skin softening service where they can drench your skin in some form of moisture rich emollients. I recently got to learn one of the coolest skin softening treatments, where your skin is wrapped in chocolate! Can you imagine! What woman wouldn’t want to be wrapped head to toe in chocolate?

If you didn’t know, chocolate is a fat, and not to break the mood, but how the treatment is prepared, is they heat the fat and oil produced from chocolate, and mix it into another skin lotion base. Thus you have both the chocolate and the lotion working together.

Now I know we all can’t rush out and get the amount of chocolate you need to do this at home. That would be way too expensive and impractical. Plus you couldn’t rub it all over yourself and get every inch like they do at the spa. So what can you do to have the same silky soft skin without the expense? Here is all you need.

All you need to do is do what you do every day, just add one small ingredient to it. First, take a warm to hot shower, the hotter the better. Why? The heat from the shower not only relaxes your body, and soothes your muscles, but opens the pores of your skin all over your body.

Now shower as you normally would, but at the end, take a wash cloth and soak it with baby oil. With the baby oil drenched wash cloth, step out of the water enough to rub the wash cloth all over your body without being hit by the water spray. Once you have rubbed the baby oil all over your body, let the shower water drench your body for an extra minute, then get out of the shower.

If time permits, don’t towel try, but air dry instead. What you will find is the moisture from the baby oil is literally sucked up by your skin like a sponge, leaving you with softer, smoother skin! Give it a try after a long hard day, and I’m sure it will become one of your favorite bath time rituals.

Post Eclampsia Disorder In Four Stages

May 16th, 2013 · No Comments


Someone out there had it out for pregnant girls. As if it isn’t hard enough on them already, there is a disorder known as Pre-Eclampsia. Below, we will take a look at what this disorder is characterized by, how it effects you, and how to tell if you have it.

Pre-Eclampsia is a pregnancy disorder involving convulsions. It generally occurs after 20 weeks of pregnancy, and usually with the first child. And as I said before… someone had it out for pregnant girls, becuase if no signs or symptoms of pre-eclampsia occur, there is still possibilities of eclampsia, which can happen before, during, or after the labour process.

There is only one true way to tell if you are carrying the eclampsia disorder; Eclamptic convulsions. Eclamptic convulsions have a four stages of gruelling pain:

Stage 1 – Unless the woman is aware and watching for this stage, it is generally missed. In stage one the woman will simply roll her eyes, and simultanieously, her hand a face muscles will slightly twitch.

Stage 2 – Shortly after stage one, the teeth will clench, the arms and legs will go rigid, she can bite her tongue, and the face and hand muscles that where twitching will now be clenching. In this stage, the woman will also experiance loss of breath for approximatley 30 seconds.

Stage 3 – This is where it gets really bad. The muscles will begin to jerk violently, while frothy and slightly bloody saliva will appear. 2 minutes of this until it stops, and then there is a coma, or occasionally heart failure.

Stage 4 -  If not dead, the woman will fall into a deep unconscious state. This can persist for hours, or pass quickly.

Clearly this is not anything to be letting pass by. if any of these symptoms occur, visit your doctor immediately. You could lose 2 lives if you are not properly treated or monitored.

Using the Arizer Solo Vaporizer

May 16th, 2013 · No Comments

For the past few years, a large trend in smoking has been the increased use of vaporizers, as opposed to using cigarettes and pipes to smoke.  Vaporizers are often preferred by people because they are cleaner, easy to use, and are quite convenient.  When looking at vaporizers to buy, one should always take the Arizer Solo vaporizer into consideration.  There are several reasons why this vaporizer is incredibly popular with smokers.  

Healthier and Safer

One of the main advantages of smoking with the Arizer Solo vaporizer is that it is a much healthier and safer way to smoke tobacco.  People that smoke tobacco with a pipe or smoke cigarettes will be inhaling a considerable amount of toxins and carcinogens, which could ultimately cause cancer or other health issues.  When smoking with a vaporizer, all of the toxins will be kept out of the smoke.  This will make the whole smoking process much cleaner and healthier.  Furthermore, using a vaporizer does not require using an open flame, which makes it much safer as well.


Beyond being a healthy way to smoke, the Arizer Solo vaporizer is also very convenient to use.  The vaporizer is very small and is completely portable as it would fit in most people’s pockets or purses.  The vaporizer is powered by a lithium ion battery, which means that it does not need to be plugged in when in use.  Furthermore, the battery can last up to three hours of direct use before having to be charged again.  When wanting to use it, the vaporizer typically takes less than a minute to heat up before you are able to smoke.  


One of the main advantages of this portable vaporizer is that it is considered to be very durable.  While some other vaporizers may be cheaper, the Arizer will work for years without any issues.  If you do experience any issues with your vaporizer, the manufacturer has a dedicated customer service team to help you out.  Also, the company offers an extended warranty package, which will pay to replace the vaporizer entirely if it is damaged or breaks.

How to Come Up With a Medication Schedule That Works For You

August 6th, 2011 · No Comments

Even if you’re young and have a sharp memory, you might still benefit from a medication schedule if you have more than one vitamin or medication you’re taking. Old or young, with the advancements in technology these days, there are medications and treatments for everything. There are a number of options available when it comes to finding a medication reminder, but how do you find the one that’s right for you?

It’s important to take your medication on time, because of the different effects it has on you. Some medications should be taken with food, at night, with other medications, without other medications. Some medications require you not to drive for a certain amount of time after you take them. Even vitamins react with your body in different ways, and it may be more beneficial to your health to take certain vitamins at certain times of the day.

Now that you know why it’s important to take medication on time, you need to find a medication schedule that works for you. If you’re the kind of person that is attached at the hip to your cell phone, there are programs or applications available to help you remember when to take your medication by sending a medication reminder to your phone. It can come in the form of an alarm, or you can even set your phone on vibrate to keep the medication reminder more discreet.

If you’re not keen on keeping up with the latest in technology, you can use a paper schedule to help you remember your medication schedule. This way, you can also take it to the doctor’s office with you and have your doctor make sure you’re doing everything correctly. If you need assistance remembering when to take your medication, you can have someone else fill out the schedule for you. You just need to make sure that you remember to fill out the schedule when you purchase your new medication.

Computer technology has really revolutionized how people remember to take their important medications. If you’re a caretaker, you can use a computer program to make a medication reminder for your sick family member. You can track when it’s time to refill medications, how much medication should be taken every day, and when it should be taken. Anywhere you have the internet you can access your medication information.

Look at the other ways you remind yourself of things that are important. This is probably going to be the best way to set up a working medication reminder. If you stick post-it notes all around your house, a simple post-it note on the bathroom mirror could help you remember to take your medication every morning. If you can’t remember things very well, you could put the bottle of pills in your shoe every night, so you literally trip over your medication in the morning and remember to take it. It’s important to use whatever method works best for you.

To find a free service that helps you create medication chart and sends you emails and text messages reminding you to take your medication go to pill reminder or medication reminder.

Awesome product.” — Snuggie Love 2010 (VA)
