Water: its impact on your health and beauty state

Water before was very emphasized for beauty and health most especially but these days I hear nothing. So I’m going to talk about the use of water based on my experiences and how it improved everything for me: how it impacts health and overall appearance.

1. Water for a soft skin

I have actually used water to improve my skin. It works well. Water cleanses the blood, it provides oxygen to the cells which is essential for the health of the cell cycle and so leads to refreshment and youthfulness of the cell and this cleanses the pores around the skin.

I advise what you do is when you wake up, drink water. Avoid drinking cold water as it clogs the skin pores by shrinking and it reduces blood flow. Everyday at least in the morning I drank 4 cups of warm water. My skin became smoother and supple. I just had to jot them down.

Warm water in the morning can cause pain when on an empty stomach and it seems drawy in the mouth. It wasn’t so cool but it worked. Thing is I’m just a lazy girl these days but the day I decide to do something, I will continue all over again.

2. Water for health

It is said that when someone is sick,he or she should drink water and it is also said that health is wealth. Since water has the power to renew the body,if you’re sick just keep yourself hydrated and drink lots of water.

Have you noticed that when someone is in a bad state or sick they don’t have a good looking appearance ,even without the make-up ‘cuz there’s no smile 🀷? That’s because the body is weak. Water removes toxic waste and helps with blood flow for proper healing of the cells.

It also aids in digestion of food which aids for the good passage of waste and eventually a good digestive and excretory system making the body system clean.

Please keep a bottle of water besides you or someone else who is sick. It will help a lot.

3. Water for improving mental health

Water improves the mental state of a person. Whenever I’m stressed I drink water. The head pounds and I drink my water. It helps relieve the pressure and reduce pains

4. Eye care and health

Water does a great job at relieving stress on the eyes. When you have eye pain or you feel your eyes are unstable ,drink water to wash the eyes. I noticed that when I drink water when having such a problem it’s like my eyes turn wet. This keeps the eyes clean.

Water also helps in giving white eyeballs. This post http://www.howtodothome.wordpress.com/how-to-get-white-eyeballs/ on How to get white eyeballs

5. Hair growth

Water helps with good movement of nutrients found in the blood,head and hair included. The water deals with dandruff by cleaning the follicles, washing your hair also helps, and the nutrients will be moved in the hair follicles with even and high spread and the hair will have a healthy growth.

6. Weight loss

Do you know that water aids with weight loss? I always advice against cold water because it reduces blood flow and increases risk of restrictions on the heart. Warm water or almost hot water helps to shed fat and reduces waste and fat in the body.

Short summary

As you can see, water does have a lot of benefits both for health, beauty and general wellness : for health, hair growth, mental state and eye care. I hope you have learnt something new at least and know how water can improve your beauty and overall wellness. Hoping to hear how it goes for you

Tips to improve general health and appearance.

Introduction

This post is based on the vote I got from my first beauty poll which is featured on the home page of my blog. If you need any answers, please vote and comment with your reasons or questions and I will, by God’s grace, be able to answer you effectively and if you are not satisfied, you can fill out the form below the post or comment,your choice.

Healthy ways to alleviate sicknesses that are chronic.

It is said that health is wealth and I want to reveal some natural ways you can reduce symptoms of sicknesses while at the same time curing it which include the following.

  • Drink warm water

You read this right. Drinking warm water is a ‘slow and steady’ habit to have. Warm water has been written and read about online but truth is for sure that ‘Experience is the best teacher’. Even just drinking water early in the morning, as long as it isn’t cold or chilled, is also beneficial because I tried it once. I remember when I used to do this, just drinking water when I wake up, and I noticed my skin was softer and smoother than usual .

N.B.:It must not be immediately you wake up. Also, you might feel pain in your abdomen as you drink it,like it’s pulling you in. Don’t know why but I think it’s because you are empty.

  • Go for regular check ups

If I ever had the chance to do things my own way,I would go for check ups. No,regular check ups. Check ups can actually help you to keep track of yourself and also updates you on your health status. Some means by which the government of my country help to encourage this is the affordable Primary health care centre in each district.

I would advice you to go at least once in two weeks. You could also get a first aid box in case of emergency.

  • Exercise

Exercises are good for the body,or at least that’s what the doc says. Why is it good? When exercising, our body, everything in and on us begins to follow the route we decide to go. It’s either we are walking or stretching or weight lifting. Our body does our bidding.

Exercising makes the blood to circulate faster which means more elimination of toxic waste, movement of our hormones to target organs quicker while toning the muscles and increasing agility. Just logic.

If you ask me, I think that exercising makes the cells overworked, stressed, worn out, you get what I mean and that makes the body to respond by the replacement of worn out tissues and production of new cells. What do you think?

  • Eat fruits and vegetables

Eating fruits and vegetables can actually reduce the effect of sicknesses. Sure most of you know that but do you know that you have to be specific. For example, if you have indigestion issues, reduce your intake of bananas and if you are pregnant, do not eat papaya/pawpaw.

The question is this: What food should I eat at least to alleviate the illness. This is what I found. (Expo: I will soon release a new post about the vitamins and minerals for health and beauty with foods that contains them so be prepared)

Food/fruits and vegetables I recommend

Now this doesn’t mean you can’t consult your doctor,just for your knowledge.

  • Apple

Sure you have heard an apple a day keeps the doctor away. This is so because it contains trace elements like boron and also contains other vitamins.

  • Plantain

Plantain is really good for anaemia patients but the unripe plantain is the best. It is also recommended for young girls/women during mensuration because it gives a lot of iron which is needed for blood formation and energy, due to the loss of blood.

  • Fish
  • Liver
  • Cereals
  • Egg yolk
  • Rice
  • Heart
  • Whole grains
  • Yeast
  • Meat,e.t.c.

Ingredients that make you look younger than your age;also keeps your entire body younger tooπŸ˜‰.

Introduction

These ingredients, both organic and natural, help to keep you looking younger than you already are. Some do not only work on the face but also on your entire body. One of the products on the list that I tried attracted attention to me. I will tell you which later in the post but read on.

Natural and organic ingredients that gives you a younger you.

Some were tested and proven by me. Others well known by the world even I don’t need to convince you. The list’s below.

  • Aloe vera

Aloe vera is a well known plant that not only has medicinal and health related properties but also helps to keep the body looking younger. Just slice some aloe vera and rub the gel on your face. Since it dries your face ,it will be right to moisturize your face. You also have the choice to leave it on your face for 15 or more mins and rinse with cold water.

You could also drink the diluted form, just dilute the gel with lots of water. It is very bitter so ,add some sweet honey to it. It will increase longevity of life cells by improving cell immunity of the body. Consult your doctor before going into it.

  • Star flower oil

I am very sure that by doing this, I am actually improving the business of the producers and retailers of this product. I am quite sure not all of you know about this wonder oil and plant because it is found in the Mediterranean.

Star flower oil has been proven to keep the skin looking younger and drinking it daily has also been proven to rejuvenate the body organs. They are sold in wholesale shops online. You can also search for it on Google.

  • Honey

This is the product I was talking about in my intro. I went to school and all were looking at me. How weird😏. I got my answer at the end of school for that day when my inspiration i.e. the push for me creating this blog, told me that I was looking more beautiful and younger than usual. This is my trick.

Before taking my bath and going to school that day, I poured honey on my face and rubbed it all over. Honey’s sticky. During my bath,I used warm water to wash my face,mind you, live it on your face for 30 or more mins.

  • Water

Water is very useful in increasing longevity which also means a younger you. Drink water daily as it washes away toxins and free radicals on your body. A daily cup of warm water daily is enough. Also washing your face and skin before sleeping at night and after waking up is a good start.

  • Olive oil

Olive oil is also known to make the skin look lovelier than usual and since it is a healthy oil, it will be good to use it for cooking.

Conclusion

Natural ingredients to grow long hair.

Introduction

Related to my How to grow long hair post,this will be the natural tools you can use which are herbs, fruits, seeds,e.t.c.. Remember from my post that I told you I had long hair until I made a mistake while caring for my hair. Two (2) years ago,I decided to use one of the herbs found in my compound and within 2wks,my hair grew longer than I expected and also thicker and more manageable. The following herbs, used from age to age, are the most used natural ingredients for increased hair growth.

Nature’s herbs.

  • Aloe vera.

One of these natural plants I used is the Aloe vera. It is the plant/herb which I used to solve the problem that happened two years ago. Since I went to a day school(now an alumni) and we were given hair styles to plait,it might seem hard but it wasn’t. For 2 consecutive weeks, I applied its gel on my scalp while applying it on the sides of the braid at night before I slept. At the end of the 2 weeks, my hair, after loosing it,was found to be longer. Even my sister was amazed. So if u want a sure answer, just follow what I have said. Don’t forget to revisit my recent post.

  • Onion juice

Onion juice is a well known remedy for hair growth. Based on research, onions have been known to be a natural remedy to cure ailments to hair growth and general well-being of the body.

Onion juice can be bought or prepared at home. All you have to do is pour it on your hair or spray it,which is a lot more easier,stimulate your scalp by massaging for a few mins,leave on your hair before you wash it.

  • Rice water

Rice water is one of the most popular hair care products to promote long hair growth. It is said to contain a protein, I am surprised though but it seems it is this protein that promotes hair growth.

I remember when I used rice water for the first time on my hair. I poured it on my hair and combed it(my hair) then covered my hair for 5 mins then removed the hair cover,improvisation is really nice though. When I then decided that I will comb my hair, it felt soft and conditioned. Natural but wow.

Just get a few cups of rice ,cover and soak it in water for 15-30 mins ,wash your rice first though, then separate the water from the rice. The water should be kept in a clean storage container for easy use. Also,I have read some where that the removed starch after cooking your rice works as well. I tried it and it works too but the rice water gotten from the uncooked rice works better for me because of my hair type.

  • Olive oil

Olive oil has been used since ancient middle east from Israel to Lebanon. Olive oil isn’t so thick and greasy. It is also one of the best known healthy oils used in cooking. Olive oil adds shine and increases hair growth. It also gives skin a beautiful olive or at least a beautiful colour. The most common I know in my country are Goya Olive oil and Robert’s Quality Olive oil.

Pears baby Olive oil works very well. Just apply on your hair and comb through. It is one of my most popular choices even though olive oil seems not to go deep into the skin because of its density. I will really advice you to go for it for a darker and/or beautiful hair.

  • Shea butter
Shea butter

This is another natural ingredient used to make shea butter. It is processed through a long means but does come out well. Though thick and smelly too,there is no fact denying that shea butter works to grow the hair longer than it was already.

Because it is very thick and can be supes greasy,I advice you use it in small quantity when applying on your hair. Also ,it melts when heated or let me say exposed to sunlight and high temp. so keep it in a cool dry storage container that is airtight and closed properly.

  • Petroleum jelly
Vaseline Blue Seal Petroleum jelly.

I am quite sure some of you know about the benefits of Vaseline for hair growth so I don’t need to dwell on it that much. It is actually organic i.e. made from hydrocarbons so it is actually safe. Just apply on your hair daily, not so much and comb through.

  • Black seed oil

Black seed oil was recently acknowledged to be one of the best hair growth boosters in the world. It also darkens the hair and increases its volume and shine.

  • Coconut oil

Coconut oil is also very popular and used for improved hair growth. A former classmate of mine uses coconut oil for her hair, though she relaxes her hair often, and her hair is really long. Since it can be greasy,don’t rub too much. One thing is for sure, your hair must breathe.

If you pour too much so that it is very oily,it will be just like pouring water into the lungs or filling your lungs with much water that you can’t breathe. If the forest is flooded, the nutrients will go away with it but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have nutrients but an overdose can be bad.

  • Milk

Milk has protein in it and is organic or natural ,let’s say because it comes from dairy animals. Well,as Peak would say, drink milk every day. It has other benefits too but let’s stick with this for now.

  • Almond oil

Almond oil is said to grow the hair longer. Don’t know about that really because it seems really scarce in my country but since it is testified to grow the hair longer, what’s the harm in trying?

  • Neem(Dogonyaro) oil

Dogonyaro is the Hausa tribe native name for this plant. It smells but not as bad as Onion juice/oil. It works very effectively with anti inflammatory properties. Also used to promote good health of the body. Try it and please share, if it helps.

  • Watermelon seed oil

My sister read online about this oil. I am really surprised that this oil exists. Why isn’t it popular then. Anyways, she told me that way to make it according to the site. We tried it but it didn’t work. LolπŸ˜‚. I am done trying but that doesn’t mean I can’t share it with you. Try it and see if it works.

According to what I heard,it has lots of goodies I ain’t going into yet for the sake of the title but at least, this is the procedure according to the site.

  1. Get some watermelon seeds.
  2. Sun-dry them or heat them to dryness.
  3. Strain or remove the oil by squeezing

Try to use as much seed as possible. I will try it again. I know I wrote I am done trying but at least, let me give it another chance. Just for trying sake.

Conclusion
