Secret to a healthy you

Whatever you do, whatever you think, make sure you do what is needed to be done.  They say that there are different secret on how you can have a beautiful body. Some gave their full effort but nothing change the fact that they are still fat and voluptuous.

Giving up the things you always eat, will mean a lot.  Sometimes, we take for granted the healthy benefits of what we eat that’s why we keep on eating too much and ending up big , fat and ugly.  Well, it’s a fact that we can’t deny that when things like this happens in our life, we feel unloved, neglected and insecure.

So, the first thing you should do is to accept who you are , accept the fact that I am now FAT AND UGLY and the next thing is to deal with it. If you are in a denial that you are not, you will end up messing things more and even getting fatter.

The Healthy Eating Pyramid, from the Harvard S...

  The food pyramid is very basic and well known even my an elementary student.  If we only knew how to use this properly, we might not end up feeling so lost just like what you are feeling right now.  Don’t worry, you are not alone.  Million of people are suffering not just in obesity but over weight and half of it are trying to do things to improve their situation and have a healthy living.

There is a saying that if your stress in life, it tends that you are more inclined to resort on eating.  I know the feeling because i once done it in my life and what happened, i gained weight that later on, i was cursing ice cream already.  But who wouldn’t love ice cream?  I would definitely not give it up unless the price would become $100 per serving.

Many claims about this so secret for a healthy , sexy looking body.  Some even used slimming tea, slimming capsule, lotion and just anything to make them thinner but still no fair results had happen.  Maybe, unless you decided to have a surgical or intervention from clinics.

sexy healthy you

First thing first, accept the reality that this is your current situation and think of ways on how to improve it.  Love your body, who would you think would love it?  If you could not accept the fact, how others could accept it?  Respect yourself if you wanted to be respected.  Don’t laugh or cry because the attitude of others towards you would vary on how you handle things on your end.  Love your body and all will follow.

Men’s Skin Care and Concealer

Who says that only women uses concealer and conscious on their skin.  Well, you think it all wrong.  Men also needs to take extra care for their skin and i have known some men who uses concealer to hide their imperfections.

I wish we can just erase that wrinkles, dark areas or eye bags, acne, moles, scars, blemishes, or just rough spots!  but it doesn’t work out that way.  That is the time we used skin care products like the concealer to help us hide it.  Concealers are very easy to use, you just need to dub the concealer to the areas you need to hide and use your forefinger to spread it.  You can easily put it on your small pouch or on your pants and use it whenever you feel the need of using it. Get the instant glow in your look but make sure that you get a concealer that was same shade as your skin. Try mineral make-ups specifically for men.  A good example is Clinique concealer for men.  It’s non-greasy, easy to apply and has a gentle soothing formula that provides natural looking.

You might think concealer is a bit stretch, think again.  With all the news of men having botox and cosmetic surgery, make up for men is not a new thing.  Hollywood actors, Famous singers and Broadcasters can attest to that since they are the one who always appear on camera and lenses of many people.  What do you think would be the reactions of their fans when they saw their favorite actor like Brad Pitt , George Clooney or James Bond lead star Daniel Craig would appear in public with dark eye circles and acne?

Here’s an easy steps for you;

  • Exfoliate
  • Apply Toner
  • Moisturize
  • Apply concealer
  • dub a small amount of face powder
  • wear lip balm

Dorian Gray Syndrome

Dorian Gray Syndrome or commonly called as (DGS) is a sickness which happens when a person has extreme pride in one’s own appearance accompanied by difficulties coping with the aging process and with the requirements of maturation. I have heard many woman who even in their mid 60’s and 70’s had their face and body undergone some surgery to prevent their aging.

Study shows that those who had this Dorian Gray Syndrome may be heavy users of cosmetic medical procedures and products in an attempt to preserve their youth.  The name alludes to Oscar Wilde’s famous novel The Picture of Dorian Gray.

The Dorian Gray Syndrome is characterized by a triad of symptoms combining diagnostic signs of dysmorphophobia, narcissistic character traits, and arrests in psychic maturation often seen in paraphilias. Dorian Gray patients frequently are excessive users of “medical lifestyle” products.

So, if you are one of the people who heavily believes to maintain her youth seeking medical help, please take the case seriously , you might be suffering from this syndrome.  One must understand that there is no such word as forever beauty or forever young.  We can be young at heart but our appearance will eventually fade and we will aged.  DGS patients are often users or abusers of hair growth and weight-loss products, mood enhancers, medication against erectile dysfunction, they are often owners of gym membership cards and very often patients for cosmetic surgery (laser resurfacing, botox injections, aesthetic surgery, etc.).

If you are one of those who desires forever youth and wanting to find the chalice of christ whom others belief that can give forever youth, think twice again. Appearance can be deceiving, what is far more important is not just delaying your aging process, going to cosmetic surgery and dying from not eating too much because of being afraid to get fat.

Although, there is still no known cure regarding this syndrome, the best way to deal with this is to have an open mind and seek professional help, psychotherapy and cognitive-behavioral methods are some of the treatment strategies you can use.
