How to make your skin look beautiful


Natural Skin Care - Just Look Into Your Kitchen

Less expensive, safer, and easy-to-use natural skin care can be as easy as opening your kitchen cabinet, coupled with a few minutes of preparation.

Radiant, healthy, glowing skin is something every person wants. Yet, few of us even think to use what's really the best for our skin: natural skin care products.

Each year, millions of dollars are spent chasing after perfectly healthy, ageless skin. The environment, stress, and
less than healthy eating habits, all play a major role in the quality of your skin.

The answers to achieving radiant, glowing complexion are within arm's reach. Many of the items in your kitchen right now can provide natural skin care that's even better thank those expensive, chemical filled products that cost an arm and a leg.

Skin Care Throughout Life

From the day of our birth, our skin requires much care to remain smooth and healthy. It begins with soap to keep us clean. Then, there are creams, powders, and ointments to keep diaper rash from our bottoms. During the first few years of our lives, our skin will do well with soap for cleaning and the occasional lotion or cream for moisture. Then come the teen years. Our raging hormones bring out the oily skin, the pimples, and a host of other conditions.

It's important to understand that everything that comes in contact with our body affects our health and the condition of our skin. That's why choosing natural skin care products and ingredients is important. The liver filters the toxins and poisons from the food we eat, but whatever we place on our skin is directly absorbed. This includes deodorant, lotions, gels, cleansers, toners, make-up, perfumes, and more.
As we age, our skin becomes more sensitive, and we need to be even more careful with the beauty treatments we use.

Simple Solutions for Better Skin

Here are a just a few natural skin care solutions for you to try. You'll be very pleased with the results:
- Once a week, rub your skin with baking soda while in the shower, for a silky, smooth feeling. You can also do this on your face to remove black heads.
- Fresh tomatoes are great for the oily areas of your face. (but your skin may be sensitive to it, so try it on your arms first). Rinse thoroughly immediately after using the tomato juice.
- For a great moisturizer try olive oil: this healthy fat is good for you, and is great for your skin. You can also use it to soothe sunburned skin.
- Vinegar can work wonders for smelly feet and armpits. Mix water and vinegar 50/50, and use in place of deodorant: it will keep the unpleasant sweat smell away, without any irritation. As for your feet, if you suffer with athlete's foot, a week of vinegar foot bath will help a lot, sometimes completely getting rid of your condition.
- Egg yolk mixed with honey makes for a really great mask: put on your skin, leave it on for 20 minutes, and rinse off. Excellent for sensitive skin. Honey gives a tingling/ticklish sensation, so if you are sensitive to that, use the egg yolk alone.
- Another use for egg yolk: for those with eczema, use it instead of soap. It doesn't smell great, but it will heal your damaged skin.
- A great treatment for dry skin is avocado: mash it, smooth it onto your face, and rinse off after twenty minutes.
Lastly, make sure you drink 8 glasses of water every day to keep your skin cared from the inside out.

How to Look Cool On the Dance Floor (just for relax ;) )

Okay, so you're at a party, a club, or anywhere where there's a hot dance beat playing. To be a smooth dude or dudette, just keep the following simple guidelines in mind.

Here's How:
- Listen to the music. As you move, you must move in time with the song. Feel the beat, and respond to it.
- Be creative. If there's a big guitar chord or a little drum pattern, move your body in response to it. It could be any move - you can't go wrong.
- Be aware of your partner. If he/she is doing a move, you might want to do something that mirrors it. And if you don't have a partner, it doesn't matter. You don't need one.
- It doesn't hurt to smile every once in awhile.
- Watch and learn. The best dancers are the ones who have been at it awhile, and they got there by picking up moves from others.
- Here's the big one: relax and enjoy yourself. Who cares what you look like? Have fun.

Remember, no two dancers are exactly alike. You have your own style. Appreciate that.

How to look cool, day to night, when it's hot!

For hot weather, cool, lightweight looks are best. In boutiques from Brooklyn to Nyack, the look is as simple as a long or short slipdress with a T-shirt for day, or wear it alone for night. A sleeveless white suit with a long side-split skirt looks sporty for day with sandals, and dressy for night with heels.

Beautiful floral dresses with long skirts worn with straw hats and flats for day, and pearls and slip-ons for night. Key transitional fabrics in August are crepe, cotton knit and ...

Roberto Cavalli


why we like him?
Without him, the rock star look would still consist of tight leather pants and a hairy chest. Cavalli's untamed extravagance has made furs, feathers and leather patchworks the staple of show-stopping jet setters. If you're famous and want to be noticed, no other label will do.
why is he famous?
His creations with denim and printed leather have always stood at the fringe until recently, as he became one of the most original and sought-out designers around. Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys always ask Cavalli to design their tour costumes, while David Beckham, Bono and Lenny Kravitz are among his biggest fans.
