Follow These 10 Tips to Prevent and Erase Wrinkles Naturally

Wrinkles are inevitable. Wrinkles seem to add up on our faces as our age also adds up. So, what’s a woman got to do when the wrinkles suddenly appear?

Modern technology has many options in eliminating these wrinkles, however, not all options are safe and they can be very expensive. There is no need to worry, however. There are actually many natural ways to prevent and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

Here are ten tips you could try so you can start saying goodbye to those fine lines:

1. Avoid too much sun.

Several studies have revealed that the sun really is the primary cause of wrinkles. There was even a study conducted by a New York plastic surgeon which involved twins, and the study revealed that those siblings who spent less time in the sun had fewer wrinkles and were younger looking.

2. Apply sunscreen.

Find a non-toxic, organic sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. Not only will it help in minimizing wrinkles, it can also help prevent skin cancer.

3. Avoid smoking.

Many studies have confirmed that smoking ages skin. Cigarette smoke releases an enzyme that breaks down collagen and elastin, which are responsible for keeping our skin’s elasticity.

4. Drink more water.

Dry skin can cause wrinkles, and when we don’t get enough water, our skin gets drier. How would you know that you have had enough water to make sure your skin is supple? Measure your weight in pounds and divide it into half, that amount in ounces should be the amount of water that you must consume within the day so your skin won’t get dry.

5. Consume food items that are rich in antioxidants.

Free radicals damage our skin, and antioxidants are great for combatting them. Consume food items that are rich in antioxidants. Fruits and vegetables are rich in these antioxidants like vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene.

6. Moisturize.

Apply natural moisturizer to your skin. You can use a water based moisturizers or if you want to go more natural, try using coconut oil or argan oil. These natural oils can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and even cellulites.

7. Drink cocoa instead of coffee as your caffeine source.

If you want some perk up, but your afraid of getting wrinkles, drink cocoa instead of coffee. Not only does cocoa have less caffeine, it also has two dietary flavonols that protects our skin from sun damage. These flavonols improve blood circulation and they can make skin look and feel smoother.

8. Get enough sleep.

You may notice that your skin is drier when you haven’t had enough sleep. This is because when we lack sleep, our body produces cortisol, which is a stress hormone. Cortisol slows growth and tissue maintenance which can result to a drier skin. Now, if you are sleep deprived for a long time, your skin would definitely become drier causing wrinkles to appear.

9. Avoid squinting.

We usually squint when we are having a difficult time reading or when we have too much sun exposure. Avoid squinting by wearing prescription glasses or lenses, and by wearing sunglasses when you are out in the sun. Squinting stresses the facial muscle around the eyes causing wrinkles to appear.

10. Don’t wash your face too much.

Tap water strips off natural barrier oils and moisture that protects us from getting wrinkles. If we wash our face too often, our skin’s natural moisturizers are also removed, so make sure you don’t wash your face too much and always use a moisturizing cleanser instead of soap.

Man with Stinky Feet Goes to Fish Spa for a Date with GF, Ends Up Killing All the Fish

Published

Being workaholic is a rather bad thing because that would take a huge toll on your body.

Spending hours getting stressed at work could lead to various health issues, including heart problems but one guy’s workaholic ways led to him getting stinky feet – and would bring him internet fame after he inadvertently killed all the fish at the fish spa he had gone to for a date! Ooooops.

A 35-year-old man only identified in reports as ‘Wong’ had been so engrossed with work that for 10 years, he has built quite a life for himself at his job in an IT company which he had entered right after graduation.

His parents were getting worried that he would never get married because he was too focused on his job but they would soon feel relieved when he finally got a girlfriend. It seems that he is already quite serious with his new girl since he introduced her to his parents.

Despite having a girlfriend already, Wong continued being a workaholic. He rarely takes out his girl for a date and was always busy at work. Sigh.

Thankfully, with some prodding from his parents, he finally took a short vacation to celebrate New Year’s Eve with his girlfriend. Happy that her boyfriend has finally come out of his shell and decided to take a breather, the girlfriend brought Wong for a fish spa session to relax.

Wong found all sorts of excuses not to go to the fish spa. He took her out to lunch and spent the day treating her to various activities but she still wanted to go to the fish spa; thus, Wong finally relented and took her there.

At the fish spa, Wong took off his shoes and immediately wrapped his feet in a towel before quickly dunking these into the water.

After the predetermined time, the spa owner came back to their tank to collect the payment but was shocked to see all the fish were dead! At first, the spa owner thought Wong had intentionally killed the fish as the tank smelled rather ‘funky’ but the embarrassed customer would soon admit that it was his stinky feet that killed the fish.

He told the spa owner that he had not properly washed his feet for all those 10 years he spent working! He was too busy at work that he was not able to exercise proper hygiene. The gunk from his feet apparently poisoned the fish.

Realizing Wong had not done this on purpose, the spa owner eventually forgave him.

Thankfully, Wong’s girlfriend did not dump him but he has made a promise to take care of his personal hygiene from then on…

Obese Guy Transforms into Impressive Hunk after Getting Rejected by Girl He Likes

Owning a mobile phone shop in Thailand gave Mos Sotaporn the money to spend on the things he loved – and food is at the top of that list.

Mos loved food so much that he became obese. At 185 cm tall, his body weight of 155 kg is still too big; his body mass index (BMI) still classified him as overweight.

But Mos did not really mind being obese. While his friends often laugh about his weight and make jokes about his size, Mos laughs along with them and knows they are telling the truth. He accepts the fact that he is obese and that there was nothing he can do about it because he loved meat and high-calorie food so much. That’s what he thought…

While he didn’t mind that his friends would laugh at his weight, he would soon undergo an amazing transformation after the woman he liked rejected him because of his unhealthy appearance.

Suddenly, things changed for Mos. He no longer felt happy being obese because he couldn’t have the woman he liked. It’s not that the woman was superficial but had only rejected him because he was unhealthy. After all, who wants to get widowed early?

So, Mos began to undergo a transformation that got everyone’s attention. His friends supported him all the way and encouraged him to work on his goals.

After living an unhealthy lifestyle for so long, Mos admitted it was rather difficult for him to get back in shape and ditch his love for unhealthy food but he focused on his goal and would soon lose so much weight that he would turn heads wherever he goes.

He lost 75 kg and obtained a well-toned body that it was quite hard to imagine this new hunk had been such a chunky, fat person just some months ago! His friends have commented that he looks so much better now that he could pass off as some celebrity. Hmmmm. What do you think of his transformation?

Hospital Kills Cancer Patient As They Mistakenly Interchanged Treatment With Another Patient With Same Initials

People rely on their doctors and nurses in their hospitals to save their lives, especially when they are sick or they are in an emergency.

Staff in hospitals are expected to always be on top of their game, alert and ready to respond. But one unfortunate mistake caused a woman with cancer her life.

The victim is Jean Dowd, 68 years old who has lung cancer, but she was given the wrong diagnosis of the kind of terminal lung cancer that she had.

So, to sum it up, Jean was not receiving the treatment that she needed after all. She was given afatinib, but in truth, what she needed was chemotherapy. If she was given chemotherapy, she would have been living longer.

A few weeks, it was discovered that the biopsy sample of Jean was mixed up with another patient. The patient her details got mixed up with apparently had the same initials as her.

Tracing back to the timeline of events, Mirror detailed that Jean was first seen by consultant clinical oncologist Dr. Amy Roy in the chest clinic on March 15, 2017. She was diagnosed with lung cancer the same month.

Dr. Roy, who acted as a witness in court said that Jean’s result came through in early April. The results suggest that she was positive for a mutation in her lung cancer. The result also recommended that afatinib was the most appropriate drug for her.

However, shortly after taking the drug, she began suffering from the side effects which included an unpleasant florid rash and she also had a sore mouth.

She was then brought to Derriford Hospital on April 16 for severing constipation that already affected her ability to eat and drink.

Dr. Roy agreed to stop the treatment and referred her to a dietician.

On the evening of May 25, 2017, Dr. Roy received an email stating that the lab results of Jean were incorrect.

She then discussed the mistake with Jean’s family on June 6, 2017. But, at this point, Jean wasn’t put back on cancer treatment yet.

Thus, she continued to deteriorate. She was transferred to St. Luke’s Hospice in June, where she died on July 9.

In a statement, an apology was issued to her family.

“We apologized sincerely to Mrs. Dowd’s family during the inquest and we would like to repeat that apology publicly now. We are extremely sorry for the mistake, the delay in communicating this and the effects this had on Mrs. Dowd’s treatment.

“Although Mrs. Dowd had incurable cancer, if the error had not been made, there is a possibility that chemotherapy may have increased Mrs. Dowd’s life by a short period of time. Our senior pathologist gave the coroner detailed assurance regarding the changes that have been made do that an error of this type could not happen again.”
