Plastic Surgery and When Is It Too Much

Let’s face it, we are living in a society where everyone is mesmerized by how plastic surgery can change a person’s look by just going for a simple procedure on your nose, getting a tummy tuck, liposuction on your thighs, or perhaps getting your breasts enlarged, but what about those who take it way far and beyond and can’t seem to stop getting different procedures done and end up not looking human anymore.

It’s good for those who have a deformity, or are just a little out of proportion and want to get it corrected through surgery, such as if you end up in a horrific car accident and need to get corrective surgery or you are a woman who’s big boned and her boobs don’t quite develop to help accentuate her body, or you are born with a cleft lip and need to get that corrected. There are many reasons why to get plastic surgery, but what about the celebrities who get one surgery after another?

A lot of different celebrities seem to become addicted to plastic surgery, mainly for the reason to keep their youthful look, but that doesn’t always seem to work out. What are some other reasons? If you know the answers tell me about it in the comments.

I know someday I would like the opportunity to get my breasts enlarged, but not the implants that look so phony where you look like you are carrying two watermelons or basketballs under your clothes, but the ones where the surgeon uses composite to fill the implants like I have talked about in an older post which you can read here: Breast Implants

What procedures would you like or wish you would like to have done?

8 DIY Home Face Masks

If you want to learn how to make your own facial masks at home instead of going to a salon and breaking your bank then read this….

 

  • For all skin types:

Brigthen: Cut a slice of ripe papaya and remove the seeds and pulp. (You can save the pulp for a nice snack later if you prefer). Clean your face and then rub the inside of the papaya peel, focusing on the lines (wrinkles) around your mouth and temples, eyes, neck and hands.

Let it dry for about 15-20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Once finished, your skin will look brighter, with a more polished finish. You can do this mask twice a week.

What it does is the enzymes in the papaya help exfoliate, repair sun damage, help diminish age spots and help smooth your skin.

 

Exfoliate: You need:

  1. 1 tsp. honey
  2. 1 tsp olive oil
  3. 1 packet of plain oatmeal

0217141100

Combine the honey and olive oil and separately, prepare the oatmeal using less water than what it says on the package to form a paste. Add the honey and olive oil mix to the cooked oatmeal and apply it as a scrub by gently rubbing it in small circles over your skin, but avoid your eye area since that part of your skin is the most sensitive and thin. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. You can do this mask twice a week.

What happens is the oatmeal exfoliates while the honey and olive oil moisturizes your skin.

 

Cleanse: You need:

  1. 1 TBSP plain Greek yogurt
  2. 2 tsp olive oil
  3. ½ tsp lemon oil (not lemon juice)

02271419230227141928a

Combine all these ingredients together, but don’t worry if it looks a bit runny because it doesn’t pour out easily. Massage this mix over your skin, then immediately wipe it off with a washcloth soaked with warm water, but just to let you know that this mixture tends to be very sticky.

You can do this daily and you will want good-quality oil and you don’t need any harsher products when it comes to acne, just be careful around your eye area.

 

  • For oil and blemish-prone skin:

Lift and tighten: You need:

  1. 2 TBSP. plain yogurt
  2. 1 TBSP fresh lemon juice

0227141923

First, clean your face and neck and then combine these two ingredients and apply it to your face and neck. Let it dry for 20-30 minutes (you will feel the mask tightening, which creates a lifting and firming effect). The longer you leave it on the more of a firming effect your will have. Once you are finished, rinse off with warm water and then a cool rinse. This mask can be done 2-3 times a week or whenever your need an instant facelift.

This mask will help you fade any age spots, acne scars and even help keep blemishes and acne away. It also helps with an uneven-skin tone.

 

Tone: After cleaning your face, brew up a cup of chamomile, or green tea and allow it to cool. Soak two clean round makeup sponges in the tea and squeeze out any extra liquid. Place them over your eyes and leave them on for 15 minutes. You can do this daily.

 

  • For dry skin:

Soothe: You need:

  1. 2 TBSP. honey
  2. 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice (which ever you prefer)

02171411000214141105

Clean your face and then combine the ingredients and apply to your skin. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water, then with a cool rinse. You can use this mask three times a week.

What this mask does is help heal, moisturize and balance the pH in your skin. The honey is a humectant and natural antibiotic that heals and moisturizes. Apple cider helps balance the pH of your skin and soothes damaged skin.

 

Moisturize: You need:

  1. 1 TBSP. oatmeal
  2. 1 TBSP. fennel seeds
  3. ½ cup boiling water
  4. 1 TBSP honey

0217141100

First off, boil the water and then add the fennel seeds. Allow them to steep for 10 minutes. In the meantime, grind up the oatmeal in a blender. Once the 10 minutes are done, strain the seeds and discard. Let the water (tea) to cool down to room temperature and then combine the tea with the oatmeal and honey. Clean your face and then apply the mixture and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and then rinse with cool water. You can use this mask twice a week.

 

Brighten: You need:

  1. 2 TBSP sour cream
  2. 2 TBSP honey
  3. 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

02171411000214141105

 

 

Clean your face and then combine the ingredients and apply it to your skin and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and then with cool water. You can use this mask twice a week. What this mask does is help heal, exfoliate, brighten and moisturize your skin. It helps refine your pores, fade acne scars, and prevents anymore blemishes from forming.

Cellulite and How to Make it Less Visible

Last week I decided to watch an episode of Dr. Oz where he was talking about a good way to get rid of that bumpy, cottage-cheese look on the back of our thighs. You know what I am talking about right? Cellulite, which isn’t exactly the most attractive thing that happens to our bodies, but what exactly, does happen? What Dr. Oz was saying is that as we age the collagen and elasticity of our skin isn’t like it was when we were younger, so the fat cells become more noticeable and we get that ripple effect on our back side, so what can we do to help stop the visible effects of cellulite?

There are 3 things you can do to help minimize the sight of cellulite:

Release, restore, rejuvenate

Release: Turkish coffee and Sugar: Mix both the Turkish coffee and sugar together and then add a little water to make a paste and rub it into the area where your cellulite is. What happens is that the coffee begins to seep into your skin and within a few weeks you will begin to see some results.

Restore: Thicken up your collagen by eating two servings a day of red food enriched with Vitamin C and Licopene such as:

  • Tomatoes
  • Red grapefruit
  • Red bell pepper
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Apples
  • Blood oranges
  • Cherries
  • Cranberries
  • Pomegranate
  • Red grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Red pears
  • Red Beets
  • Watermelon
  • Red cabbage
  • Red onion
  • Rhubarb
  • Red potatoes
  • Radicchio
  • Radishes

Rejuvenate: Golf ball and Olive oil: Dip the golf ball into the olive oil and simply massage where your cellulite is at to help minimize the appearance of cellulite.

You can buy the Turkish coffee at Amazon and you can watch the video at Dr. Ozs’ website.

Top 20 Beauty Tricks to Help Make You Look Better in Photos Instantly

1. Apply your eye makeup first so no stray eye shadow ends up messing up your foundation.
2. Put eyeliner on the upper inner rim of your eye.
3. Add a lot of mascara, and I mean a lot because wearing a lot helps open up the eye and brings it into focus better. If you don’t have on any mascara in a picture then you will disappear. The best way to put mascara on is to blink down onto the brush head so it gets really close to the lash line and then wiggle it to the ends of your lashes. This technique will help coat your lashes from root to tip.
4. Skip highlighting the inner V corners of your eyes closest to your nose, just use concealer to help brighten up your eyes.
5. Fill in your brows for a fuller and longer look.
6.  Use masking tape to dab your face with before using any powder to help pick up any residue that fell under your eyes as your makeup settled.
7. Try a slighter sheer foundation.
8. Put foundation on your ears if you ears seem to get hot and red often.
9. Contour your face with a blush brush to add angles because it’s about calling attention to your good features and shadowing the ones you don’t want highlighted.
10. Add blush for a subtle dimension, especially if you don’t like wearing any bronzer. Blush is also good for creating contour and shape to your face.
11. Moisten your lips for a youthful glow because you want to make sure your lips are hydrated in any picture because flaky lips in a photo just isn’t pretty.
12. Use a boar bristle brush to your hair to help keep frizz at bay because you don’t want your pictures looking like you’re trying out as the new bride of Frankenstein.
13. Be sure to smile, but not too big because when you smile real big your eyes tend to wrinkle up. If you are uncertain on how you look when you smile then be sure to practice in the mirror before taking any pictures.
14. Taking pictures at dawn or dusk instead of the midday because from noon to four or five the sun is over you, so your forehead will be brightly lit, but the rest of your face will have shadows.
15. Take advantage of a cloudy day to help bring a nice, soft light that will leave less emphasis on character lines such as crow’s-feet, or any subtle wrinkles.
16. Use a white wall as your backdrop to help bring brightness to your face.
17. Work your angles to help make you look completely different from the other shoot.
18. Always elevate the camera and tilt it down to get your best angle.
19. When taking your own picture be sure to hand the camera to the tallest person who has the longest arms especially when taking a picture with a group of people so that way the camera will be held up while tilting down with ease, so everyone is in the picture and at their best angle.
20. Create your own soft focus by taking a piece of wax paper, cut it into a 2 x 4′ square and then hold it out so it’s in from of the flash but not visible in the frame. This will give the photo that dreamy, filtered effect.
