The Best Natural Beauty Products

The last few decades have seen a revolution in the cosmetic and beauty products industry. The focus on natural and organic products has caused most cosmetics giants to launch their own lines of natural skin and beauty care products.It is well-known now that chemical based cosmetics are harmful for your skin, especially in the long run. Thus more and more, people are turning to products containing natural ingredients. The skin is the body’s largest organ, and we should care for it the same way as we do for the other organs. We are careful to maintain a healthy diet; we should give our skin the same importance and monitor what we apply on it.There are many contents found in a lot of traditional skin care products that are cocktails of chemicals and have been known to cause allergies. Some believe that plant-based products are better able to imitate the skin’s structure and support its health.Here are a few ingredients which one should watch out for:
• Sodium laureth sulfate and sodium lauryl sulfate are used as foaming agents, they cause drying and sometimes eczema.
• The different forms of parabens as preservatives may cause rashes and other allergic reactions and are commonly found in skin care products.
• Diethanolamine (DEA) is used mainly for its foaming and emulsifying properties and has been associated with allergic reactions and eye irritation.
• Though mineral oil is a natural ingredient, it is a by-product of crude oil, which as we know is extracted from the earth. The question you have to ask yourself is – do I want to put something that is a by-product of the petrochemical industry on my skin?While choosing which cosmetics to use, one should remember that natural ingredients too can cause allergies especially on very sensitive skin. However the chances of such ingredients causing allergies is much lower than their chemical counterparts.What you should look for in a cosmetic?You will see a lot of products on the shelves with the words “organic” or “natural” or even “green”. Remember that many of these are just marketing schemes and in a lot of cases the use of these terms is not regulated, so read the labels very carefully, preferably glance through the contents of the product.It is equally important to maintain your skin from the inside and not just from the outside. Eating a balanced diet with a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water and using the right kind and quantity of oils and spices in your cooking, avoiding processed food and oily and spicy food, really is the best way to maintain a healthy, glowing and soft skin.

Small Business Profits – Exploding Profits With Continuity Products

What is continuity?Well, I look it up in the dictionary. Did you know that looking words up in the dictionary is UNCOMMON. A great man named Michael York taught me that. Not many people do that – you should try it frequently.Here is the definition of continuity…An uninterrupted succession or flow; a coherent whole.So you are probably thinking what I am talking about? What does continuity have to do with my business? My answer to you……everything – that is if you want to make a lot of money.Continuity in your business means creating ways for uninterrupted succession of you collecting money from your customers for something that is easy for you to deliver.This concept is used in the information publishing business and mail order business all the time. Some examples are magazine subscriptions, book-of-the-month, tape-of-the-month, Columbia House, BMG, Netflix and so on.Recently I have seen THREE very good examples of this done by regular businesses.Big League Haircuts For Men: I don’t know if I mentioned this place before but it is a great example of picking a very specific niche and being just for them. This is a haircut place designed around men. They don’t care about alienating women. They charge more for a haircut but make it worth it for men to come in. Flat screen TVs at every hair cut station and then men get to hold the remote is just one of the ways they accomplish this.This place is truly sensational. BUT they are smart enough to implement a continuity product. They offer a yearly and monthly subscription for haircuts. You can come in all the any time during that time and get unlimited haircuts. The subscription automatically renews itself unless you cancel. Think about how that can revolutionize the business and the cash flow.Info USA: This company deals in mailing lists. These are normally sold on a per name basis – a few cents per name. Info USA has an annual continuity product that gets you something like 15,000 names for a set annual price and then additional names for a low low cost. The subscription automatically renews itself every year unless you cancel.Amazon.com: Amazon who sells books one at a time just recently offered me a test membership in a new program they just launched – Amazon Prime. As a prime member I get free two-day shipping on all books I order. Plus, overnight shipping on any order for just $3.99. They offered me a 3 month trial membership which then bills $79 annually. This auto renews annually until you cancel.Think about how you can cannibalize this concept and offer a continuity product to your customers. Only a fraction of your customers will bite but you will create recurring revenue that you can count on. Not to mention the significant acceleration of cash flow. If the continuity product is monthly you can develop a fantastic monthly base the can add significant revenue to your bottom-line.The take-away here for you is that continuity products work and they can mean big profits in your business. It may take some non-traditional thinking and a little effort but the results are well worth it.

1. Begin by using your dominant hand’s forefinger and thumb. Locate the area between your forefinger and thumb on your non-dominant hand. This is a very fleshy area. In the junction you will find a firm knot-like tendon. This is a pressure point.

2. Once you’ve located this pressure point, use your dominant hand to firmly massage the area, You don’t want it to be painful, but do maintain firm pressure to the area. This works best if someone else can massage the area for you, but it’s not necessary.

Now that your headache is gone, it;s time to fix the source of stress. The tension will continue to come unless you take measures to relax those muscles.

Your eyes might be sensitive from the headache. Turning all the lights down or off can sometimes help as well. If you suspect your headache is sinus related, you may have to resort to medication. A decongestant helps to relieve pressure in the sinus cavities. An antihistamine can help with allergy related symptoms.
