Tips on Taking Good Care of Your Skin...

Having healthy skin as you age can mean the difference between feeling great about yourself and your appearance and feeling unhappy and old. Texas summers can do a lot of damage to skin, especially for people who like to get out in the Austin sun. Skin care products offer varying degrees of protection, and many people need to see professional dermatologists in Austin to address specific skin care issues. Advice can generally be narrowed down into about five basic points for taking better care of your skin. Protection: When you go outside, always make sure you protect your skin by using sunscreen, staying in the shade as much as possible and wear at least one thin layer of clothing to shield your skin from the sun. Consider a wide-brimmed hat as a shield as well. Smoking: Smoking depresses blood flow in the capillaries that are found near the surface of your skin, blocking important nutrients that are vital to the health of the skin, and because it depletes collagen and elastin can also cause your face to wrinkle more easily. Be gentle: Before going out into the hot days of summer in Austin, don’t use rough skin care techniques as part of your daily hygiene. Don’t do anything that strips oil from your skin, which can lead to dry and cracked skin and other difficulties, whether you refrain from long shower or strong soap. Consider moisturizing your skin when it is dry. Be healthy: Watch what you eat and refrain from fatty, sugary foods, or from carbonated drinks that use high fructose corn syrup. Eat a balanced diet, and be active; exercise doing something you enjoy doing, whether lifting weights, running, playing tennis, or doing yoga or aerobics. Staying well oxygenated and nurturing your...

GPS Tracking Devices and the Importance of Information...

Information is important; one of the most important parts of decision making is having reliable and accurate information. Tomes have been written about the value of good information to presidents and prime ministers making the decision to go to war, or making decisions about economic policy. Entire schools of economic study are based on the principle of how hard it is to get accurate information. However the pressing need for accurate information extends beyond military matters but into simple business decisions. There’s a reason why civilian companies will put a GPS tracking device into their vehicles. The military applications of such technology are rather obvious, but for civilian companies the benefits of GPS tracking devices might seem less obvious. Businesses, especially ones that aren’t at the very top, tend to have very small margins. Every decision has to be weighed carefully, and every option needs to be carefully considered. In a smaller business even the relatively mundane decisions of who to promote or give a raise to need to be made with accurate information. If nothing else, GPS tracking devices in vehicles can help you see which drivers and works take the most efficient routes, which waste the least time, and who’s the most honest with you. GPS tracking devices can also offer up to the second information about the location of goods and employees, thus allowing a company to make accurate predictions about the speed and arrival of goods, and providing simple safety and peace of mind by knowing where your drivers are. There’s another factor, when people know that accurate information can be gathered on them they’re more inclined to act honestly. Even if you don’t use the GPS tracking device often to check that people are doing their job how they’re...

Large Format Ink to Economize High Volume Demands...

Printing is an important field either as independent business or a subsection of another business. Printed media remains incredibly important, it’s not just an issue of books and magazines, people use printing technology for signs, posters, clothing, and various other forms and uses. People have printers in their homes that allow them to make hundreds of identical copies of a single document at the touch of a button (and some patience depending on the length of the document. Businesses need to print as well, and for truly high volume people use large format ink. Large format ink is essentially just ink cartridges and delivery systems that work best at high volumes. There are a limited number of pages of text that a normal black ink cartridge can produce from a home printer. For printing in pure black many use laser technology to print, but those who wish to use ink would use large format ink to print a great many more pages and get more use out of each cartridge. The access to home printing technology is a little amazing in all reality. It wasn’t that long ago that if you wanted to make a copy of a document you would have to retype it, or attempt to use carbon paper. Even the invention of the copy machine didn’t make things much better as they were not very high fidelity and were insanely expensive for normal use. Dot matrix printers could handle text somewhat, but more complex documents (especially images) were beyond a dot matrix printer’s reaches. While large format ink isn’t in high demand by households for their normal printing needs, schools and businesses get use of them when it comes time to produce color documents. The proliferation and spread of printing technology,...

Our makeup artist gave us a few tips to help move us into fall with our makeup routine.  If you haven’t’ noticed in the magazines, jewel tones are big this year in wardrobe so you can use this in your makeup as well.  Going for a blushed cheek, smoked out eye or a berry/red lip can bring you on trend but don’t go too daring in colors. Our makeup artist said to pick your feature to play up, eyes, check, or lips and keep the rest simple.  With your eyes, apply a deeper jewel tone to the outer corner of your eye and blend out into the crease.  You can even pull that jewel tone color under your bottom eyelashes and bring in about a quarter of the way then blend out with a lighter more neutral color.  Or you can choose to apply a jewel-toned eyeliner.  No need to get all crazy with a winged look but lining the eye with a pretty color can give your eye that fall look.  To give your eyes a bit of a pop of color take a silver or white powder to the inside corner of the eye.  This will help the eye to pop and look whiter and brighter.  A trick makeup artist does all the time.  Your eyes are the focus here so keep the rest of the face more...

The Use of Chelation Therapy in Alternative Medicine...

The use of chelation therapy as a cleansing agent to remove heavy metals from the body has many possible benefits, depending on individual circumstances. The most basic process involves the infusion of amino acid into the body, which is a microscopic molecule that binds to heavy metals such as iron, mercury, and lead, and then extracts them through the process of urination. For people who have certain levels of these metals in their body, they can have a toxic effect that causes diverse issues, such as cardiac disease and the production of harmful free radicals in the body. Chelation therapy is a method of drawing out the toxins that can lead to these kinds of unhealthy conditions whereby cells break down and depreciate and can even eventually lead to premature death. There has been a lot in the press in recent years about free radicals and the harmful effects they can produce in the body. Free radicals can cause severe imbalances in nutrition, deficits in appropriate vitamins, and can cause many of the body’s tissues to lack the appropriate amount of oxygen needed in order to function efficiently. Using chelation therapy for some people can detract the metals from the body that cause free radicals, allowing the body to have the resources to build up healthy levels of natural vitamins and minerals. Chelation therapy can also, therefore, have a direct effect on cardiac disease that leads to hardened arteries and plaque buildup, and the accumulation of too many platelets that can lead to clotting, thereby improving blood circulation so that oxygen can move through various capillaries and give your body’s various tissues the levels of oxygen they need in order to function properly. In the context of a holistic alternative treatment, the therapy may...

FDA Warning Regarding Surgical Mesh Implants Reads Like a Gruesome Horror Novel...

The update that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued last year regarding surgical mesh implants reads like something straight out of a horror novel. One has to wonder why, in light of continued insistence by the FDA that surgical mesh implant complications are serious and not rare, doctors continue to routinely propose the procedure to repair prolapsed organs in the pelvic area. Especially when the FDA has also reported that surgical mesh implants have not been shown to be any better in repairing prolapses than other less riskier options. Not only has the FDA continually warned medical care providers and potential patients of the dangers inherent to surgical mesh implants, they have urged doctors to acknowledge that organ prolapse could best be treated by other methods. When doctors and patients choose to proceed with the surgery, the FDA insists that doctors adequately warn the patient about the risks involved both in terms of the surgery and for future side effects. Despite the number of patients who have experienced problems with surgical mesh implants, the continued warnings, and the multiple warnings from the FDA, lawsuits continue to be filed in cases involving surgical mesh implants as more and more patients learn that the symptoms they are experiencing following surgical implantation of mesh is the result of mesh erosion which is leading to extreme pain, especially during intercourse, and an inability to perform even the most basic daily activities. Other patients who have agreed to additional surgeries in an attempt to have the eroded mesh removed have continued to experience the debilitating side effects even after multiple surgeries. In addition, patients who are involved in sexual relations with men report that when the mesh has become exposed because of the erosion of the implants, their...
