Cellulite: The Biggest Female Epidemic

Cellulite is probably one of the most embarrassing of all physical faults that women have.

Cellulite isn’t just a problem with the obese or overweight either. Normal sized and even skinny women suffer from cellulite as well!

It has been surveyed that 90% of ALL women have cellulite somewhere on their bodies. That leaves only a small 10% who are actually free from this problem.

Now before you start hating those women’s guts for being so lucky, you should ask yourself what you can do to get rid of your cellulite so that you will be a part of that 10%.

Eventually as enough women begin to solve this cellulite problem and rid themselves of cellulite, the 10% who are free from cellulite will grow to 15% and the 90% who suffer from cellulite will decrease to 85%, and on and on.

You little knew that ridding yourself of cellulite and helping your friends and family to do the same could have such a momentous effect, did you?

Everyone thinks dimples are adorable, but thats only when they’re on your face. They don’t look quite so cute when they’re on your thighs, hips or any of the many other places of which we women are cellulite prone.

“What help is there for my cellulite?” You might ask.

Thats a good question since there are so many different claims about products and treatments that will supposedly “Diminish Cellulite In 10 Days!” or whatever claim they put out.

What woman wouldn’t want to try these just to see if they would work for her?

But sadly in most cases you’ll be throwing your time and money away on these false or misleading claims that will not help cellulite but will only drain your bank account.

There are a lot of real things you can do to help rid (Read more ...)

Microstock, by many is referred to as an accessible offshoot of the traditional forms of stock photography agencies. In Microstock, an amateur photographer does not face multiple rejections and gets paid on every single photograph he has put for sale. So, unlike in the stock photography websites, you do not have to sit idle on your hard drive waiting for the approval and then sale of your posted photograph. Instead, those pictures that meet rejection by stock photography are cordially approved by Microstock and sold at low prices to a large segment of consumers.

For starters, especially students, Microstock is the best agency to start their photography career. This agency not only kick starts a student’s career, but also gives immense boost to contemplate this career for a long term. Here’s how Microstock is good for students:

Saves you from multiple rejections: The predominant reason for students opting for selling their pictures in Microstock, is its easy acceptance of the pictures of sorts. Unlike stock photography agencies, there are no stringent standards observed in accepting pictures. This gives an immense boost to amateur students still at the stage of bettering themselves as photographers to taste and experience the world of professional photography. Once you forward your picture to Microstock, they source your image through internet promptly. They open your image for sale to a wide array of potential consumers and sell them at a very low price, ranging from few cents to dollars. Though, in Microstock, your single picture is sold at a meager price, but it is much better than the means of Stockphotography sites where you have to wait for a long term to let your picture be sold at a decent price. On the other hand, Microstock guarantees the (Read more ...)

Smoothing Your Furrowed Brow With Botox

Botox has become the preferred treatment for erasing the lines and wrinkles that appear as we age. Both men and women make use of this simple and effective treatment when they want to look and feel their best.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best or getting treatments to accomplish this. Aging gracefully doesn’t mean that you should ignore your appearance or put up with lines and wrinkles that you hate to look at every day. You are not denying your age when you try to improve your appearance. By looking your best, you will feel your best and be able to enjoy life to the fullest.

Botox works by relaxing the muscles that contract and cause frown lines and fine wrinkles. A lifetime of laughter and concentration can cause our muscles around our eyes, mouth and between our eyebrows to contract even when we don’t consciously frown or become amused. By injecting very small amounts of Botox into those muscles, they relax and the lines that marred the face are removed.

There are many myths about Botox treatment that keep some people from enjoying the benefits of it. Because the formal name for the substance injected is Botulinum toxin, many people assume that a harmful substance is being used.

The amount of Botox used in cosmetic treatments is such a small dose that it can’t possibly have the negative effects of botulism. In fact, the FDA approved Botox in 2002 for cosmetic and therapeutic treatments for a variety of medical conditions such as excessive sweating, muscle pain, spasticity, neck pain and uncontrolled blinking to name just a few.

It is not true that Botox numbs the face. When applied by a trained physician there are no such side effects. Only when a person tries to save money by going to an (Read more ...)
