Are you worry about pimples that always seem to pop up at the most inopportune period eg, before a big date, important job interview or your wedding day)? You need to get rid of pimples, and fast! Try these quick fixes to help rapidly banish that breakout.
1. Spot-Treat It
Over-the-counter spot treatments deliver a generous amount of acne-fighting ingredients directly to the blemish. Choose one that contains benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Experiment to find which works best for you.
Some spot treatments are made to be left on overnight. Others are incorporated into a makeup concealer or are tinted to hide the blemish while it heals.
If you’d rather go the all-natural route, try dabbing on a drop of tea tree essential oil a few times a day. Some sources claim tea tree oil is as effective as 5% benzoyl peroxide.
You’ll be tempted to over-apply that spot treatment. Don’t! You’ll wind up with flaky, irritated skin you can’t disguise with makeup. Always follow the usage directions precisely.
2. Mask It
If spot treatments quite not working, you may have better luck with a sulfur mask. Sulfur helps unclog pores and reduce inflammation, and has been used as an acne treatment for many, many years. Today’s treatments don’t have the unpleasant scent of those from years past.
You can find inexpensive masks containing sulfur at your local drug store or more pricey products at posh department stores or salons. Some products can be left on a spot overnight for maximum effectiveness; others must be rinsed off after a few minutes. Make sure you follow the directions on your product, and never leave a mask on overnight unless it specifically says it’s OK to do so.
3. Ice It
Here’s a tip I learned from my favorite esthetician: apply an ice cube to inflamed blemishes. The cold temperature will help reduce redness and swelling, making the blemish look better. This is also a cool trick for those blemishes you can feel starting under the skin.
You never want the ice cube directly touching your skin, so first wrap it in tissue or a soft cloth, and don’t ice the pimple for too long (frostbite anyone?). Ice for 20 or 30 seconds, followed by a minute or so of rest, a few times per day or just before you go out.
Why cold and not heat? If you’re trying to hide a pimple, the worst thing you could do is steam it (or apply a hot compress) just before you go out. Heat can make the pimple look larger and more red.
4. Zap It
Make an emergency visit to your esthetician, and let her zap the blemish away with her high frequency machine. This machine uses a high frequency current to kill bacteria that cause inflamed blemishes.
Your esthetician will run a small electrode over the blemish. You won’t feel a thing, except maybe a slight tingle, and within a few hours the pimple will be noticeably smaller.
If you can’t get in to the salon or you just like the idea of having your own personal zit zapper, you may want to invest in a Zeno device. It works under the same principle, except it is hand-held and battery-operated. You can buy Zeno at some dermatologist offices, salons and even at some retail stores.

5. Inject It
For those incredibly deep, painful, cystic breakouts, your best option is to call your dermatologist for a cortisone injection

Use Stairs :
Almost everyone use lifts and accelerators instead of stairs. But my point is when we have stairs why should not we use them? They are good not only for losing weight but also for building up stamina. This is the perfect exercise for your legs and for burning the extra calories.
If you want to keep yourself healthy and active then never starve yourself by using strict diet. It is good to eat healthy but not to starve. You need to eat fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grain, fish and whatever healthy you can get. But quitting meals is certainly not a good idea.
If you are engaged in a serious battle with your bulges using a carefully devised weight reducing program, then it is necessary that you learn the basic information regarding calories and its relation to your weight reduction program.
A pound of body fat is equivalent to about 3500 calories. Thus, if you are able to achieve a calorie deficit of about the same amount through exercise, diet or a program that combines both, then you are in effect reducing your body weight by about a pound. In general terms, this corresponds to 75% of fat component and 25% of lean tissue. A person who is able to achieve a calorie deficit of 7000 will lose 2 pounds. You can achieve your desired levels of calorie deficit either by restriction of calorie intake or by combining activities that regulate calorie intake and increase the level burned calories. Thus, it is important that you adopt a weight loss program that combines healthy diet and regular exercise.
If you want to succeed in your weight loss program, a critical indicator for lowering your intake of calories is reducing it by no less than 500 calories a day. However, the reduction should not be more than 1000 of your normal level of daily maintenance.
Here are 4 important tips to follow to reduce your calorie intake.
Make it a habit to drink an 8-ounce of water before a meal. Your fluid intake will make you achieve the feeling of being full with lesser food intake.
Use a salad plate instead of the regular sized plate when eating your dinner. Our normal behavior is that we fill up the plate every time we eat. By using a salad plate you are effectively cutting down the amount of your food intake thereby reducing the amount of calories that you take in.
Follow a regular schedule for your exercise. It is important to remember that you need to burn those calories in order to reduce weight. You should also understand that it is important that the amount of calories that you take in daily must be lower than the calories that you are able to burn during exercise in order to meet your target weight.
Chew a gum while cooking as this will send the appropriate signal to your brain for the sensation of actually eating and will trigger a response as if your stomach is full.

She carries condoms but clients refuse to wear them.
“None of us were aware about the danger of Aids looming over us for years but now we all know and can avoid it,” said the tall 29 year-old, who lives in a Victorian-style building in the heart of the neighbourhood.
Shumaila’s awareness – rare among Pakistan sex workers – is thanks to the gender and reproductive health forum, a local charity that runs a UN-funded programme in Napier Road teaching prostitutes about the perils of HIV/Aids.
“So far we have provided hundreds of thousands of condoms to sex workers in the last two years, which have saved them from being infected with the lethal virus,” said Mirza Aleem Baig, who runs the forum.
Karachi, Pakistan’s largest metropolis and one of the biggest Muslim cities in the world, has up to 100,000 female sex workers, according to data gathered by Pakistan Society, a local welfare organisation.
“This is 20 per cent of their overall population in Pakistan. Lahore comes next with 75,000 sex workers,” Saleem Azam, head of the charity, told AFP.
Prostitution may be illegal but it has prospered in an increasingly Islamised Pakistan, where an economic downturn and widening poverty have forced women and men onto the streets to meet the rising cost of living.
Shaheena, 38, is a home-based sex worker. She is a skilled paramedic but seldom finds a permanent job.
“So I opted to enter this business on the side,” she told AFP, veiling her face to hide her identity.
“I have siblings, cousins, nephews and nieces who don’t know about my second profession. So I don’t want to identify myself to avoid embarrassing them.
“But it’s a question of survival as none of my relatives support me with money. They are all too stretched themselves,” she said.
Azam says more than 60 per cent of Pakistan’s prostitutes work from homes or ply the streets, while the elite serve wealthy clients from kothikhanas (houses or rooms) in plush neighbourhoods.
This year’s annual UN report on Aids suggested that while the epidemic in Asia appears to be stable overall, HIV prevalence is increasing in some parts of the region, such as Bangladesh and Pakistan.
A survey published in the report said 60 per cent of female sex workers and 45 per cent of their male clients in Karachi and Lahore do not know that condoms can prevent transmission of HIV.
Of those who do, few protect themselves.
“The number of our clients who agree to wear a condom is very small. Female condoms are not available, which can save us more effectively,” said Nasreen, another prostitute in Napier Road.
“I can’t carry condoms in my purse on the street as we’re vulnerable to the police and could be arrested if they find them,” said Afshan, 29, who walks the city’s busy streets looking for clients.
The most recent survey conducted by Pakistan’s state-run national Aids control programme (NACP) in 2006 said only 18 per cent of sex workers reported always using condoms.
The UN report estimates that around 96,000 people, or 0.1 per cent of the population, live with HIV in Pakistan. The government suggests that only 5,000 people are infected.
NACP says the disease is spreading among high-risk groups, especially drug users, who mostly inject and use dirty needles, raising fears the virus could spread quickly from addicts to prostitutes.
In 2006, Pakistan said HIV/Aids prevalence among female sex workers was around 0.02 per cent, but independent bodies put it much higher.
“It is at least 15 per cent,” said Azam. “They are totally at the mercy of their clients. Most of their clients refuse to wear condoms.
“In Pakistan, this business is illegal, thus there is no law seriously to tackle the issue and save precious lives. Yet a way out is desperately needed on humanitarian grounds.”
Baig said he had identified an HIV-positive sex worker a few months ago and tried to help her with treatment and a new job but she left because her colleagues considered her a blot on their business.
“Now, no one knows where she is and what she is doing,” he said.
In our highly industrialized society, where chemicals are present every where, itâ€™s almost impossible to find something 100% natural. Thatâ€™s why lately has appeared a new market and concept which ask us to go back to nature offering 100% natural products. This concept is present in the hair loss treatment field with:
Saw Palmetto Extract- latest studies showed a link between the hair loss and prostate, still isnâ€™t fully understanded how the link work, but this havenâ€™t stopped the manufacturers to lunch Saw Palmetto Extract (a prostate remedy) on the hair loss treatments market. It seems this extract makes the DHT hormone level to drop, which should help our hair and prostate. There arenâ€™t certified studies which guarantees that the extract beneficial effect, but for the man who suffer from baldness any chance is worth taken.
Nettle Root Extract is another natural remedy which comes from prostate treatment field and itâ€™s a cocktail of key minerals Vitamin C and Vitamin A, which work great with the saw palmetto extract, when it comes to prostate treatment.
Aloe Vera is a well know and widespread cosmetic plant and anyone can find shampoos with aloe vera extract. This plant when is used in combination with wheat germ and coconut milk, will help our scalps, lowering or increasing the pH level and healing the damaged follicles. Anyone can find fresh aloe vera at the grocery stores, is cheap, and in my opinion worth trying.
Massage- we all know its beneficial effects but unfortunately hair recovery isnâ€™t one. The scalp massage is better if you want to speed up the hair growing by increasing the blood flow. When it comes to the dead follicles the massage canâ€™t do anything except giving you a nice sensation.
Diet- is a essentially part of any treatment and hair lose treatment isnâ€™t the exception, in order to regrow hair your body need some key proteins and amino acids. A balanced diet wont help your hair by itself, but in combination with other treatments can do a great job.
Neck fat is an awkward appearance which is avoided by people continuously by people. These are common problems which require meticulous treatment by methodical process. These treatments are becoming famous and they make them feel and look older than their real age. These appearances make anybody feel unimpressive and do not reveal their true age particulars without revealing young age for them. People should earnestly think in terms of reducing their weight around the neck. Experts have opened that there are myriads of treatments which can control this type of a condition which should be geared up under control.
The following lists can be enumerated in a successful manner without any difficulty. First of all you should undertake proper exercise which can magnificently shape up your appearance from the fat conditions around the neck. Before you undertake such an exercise for a methodical regimen as well as program you should seek consultation of a certified exercise coach who can help you in toning up the muscles around the neck. These programs should plan the toning up of exercises which should be composed of hardening as well as improvising the strength as well as weight training regimen.
Since an excess weight is caused, physical exercises should be supplemented with a proper and meticulous as well as nutritious diet. Nutritionists advise people confronted with obesity for intake of foods with rich fiber content to make them feel with satisfied appetite even with small amounts of intake. High calorie food, Trans fat as well as food impregnated with salt should be kept away. Under such conditions a lot of intake of water is advisable.
Another method which is recommended in the form of cosmetic surgery is one of the most adroit methods for reduction of the look of fat in a pleasant manner. These may not be advisable for administration on everybody but, this is the most efficient methodology for reduction of fat under such conditions. There is another condition known as neck lift which can be administered on people who experience sagging skin from their neck area. This is medically known as platysmaplasty. Surgeons would utilize the process of incisions directly at the back of the ear to get rid of by hiding the look of scars. This medical process enhances the outlook of the jaw line.
Another process is known as neck lift liposuction. This process is designed for the removal of deposits of fat in the neck area where the magic of exercise as well as diet does not give results. Most of the concentrated areas are sub-mental regions, jowl, and cheek.
Surgical processes are mostly resorted to as the last step. Only after the other methodologies of exercising and dieting have been resorted to the method of surgical process should be considered if all the other methods have failed to yield research.
Proper advice from dermatologists should be taken for applying the right brand of creams which are important from the point of view of successful treatment. This as clear-cut strategy should be adopted to the effect that if medications fail, surgery should be resorted to.
