What You Should Know About Anti Aging Natural Skin Care Products

By Kristie Johnson

Are you seeking to have smoother, clearer and younger looking skin naturally? If so, you should know how to select effective anti aging natural skin care products. There are a lot of choices for anti aging products and some really work wonders where fine lines, sagging skin, dark circle under the eyes, brown spots and wrinkles are taken care of almost perfectly. Of course, you want to know the best anti aging skin care treatment for you.

A product that claims you can look ten years younger and a natural treatment seems to be the perfect candidate as the best anti aging skin care product. However, is this really true? The best ways to find out is try the product, check out the reviews of other people who have used it or you can do some research about the ingredients of the skin care product.

In order to help you evaluate these skin care products, you should be aware of the ingredients that should be avoided. These ingredients can actually cause harm to your skin after a certain period of time. One of these harmful ingredients is mineral oil or may also be named on the product label as petrolatum, paraffin or paraffin wax. It inhibits the skin to ‘breath.’ The oil clogs the pores, thus, the natural ability of the skin to take out toxins of the body is interfered and this can cause further irritation especially to someone with acne. If used for a long time, the skin may chap and dry that makes the skin age prematurely.

Also, products with dioxane should be avoided. The ingredient is a synthetic copy of coconut and is believed to cause cancer especially if the skin care product has high content of 1,4-dioxane. Your anti aging product should also be free from fragrances since these are produced by using ingredients that are carcinogenic or toxic.

You should check out too if your skin care product contains parabens (ethyl, methyl, propyl or butyl). These are used as preservative of the product so it can last long but these ingredients can cause cancer and disrupts the normal process of the endocrine system. Also, it can cause rashes and allergies.

The best anti aging skin care product should contain the effective ingredients in the proper proportions. The product must contain ingredients that can stimulate the body to create its own collagen. It really will not help if the product contains collagen since its molecules are too big to get into the skin when topically applied.

Your skin care product is more assured to be effective if it contains Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10. This ingredient is like a vitamin that is present to all the cells of our body and plays a very important role to maintain a healthy skin. The substance is a very effective antioxidant since it is able to counter the free radicals in our body cells before it can cause any damage.

Given the ingredients your product should have and have not, you are now armed with enough information when shopping for anti aging natural skin care products. If you want to know more how you can take care of your skin, visit us at www.healthy-natural-skin.com.

Outdoor Shed Plans Construct A Shed Foundation The Right Way}

Outdoor Shed Plans – Construct a Shed Foundation The Right Way

by

Cole maxBuilding a shed can appear to be quite a challenge to amateur woodworkers. Build a flat, firm and level shed foundation and the rest is more or less simple. Constructing the foundation for a shed is not that difficult for one person to do alone. However, it is good to have a second person to help you lift the timber.

It is good to consult your local building council to check if you need any building permits. This can vary from area to area. Choose the construction site wisely. Make sure it is easily accessible. Check that there are no trees or shrubs growing near the shed. The shed must be situated in an area which receives ample sunlight and air.

It is very critical to have a dry and level foundation. It is impractical to build a shed on an uneven foundation. This will prevent the wall sections from fitting into place when you try to secure them to each other. For sheds which will need to hold heavy items, it is recommended to build a concrete foundation. The two most common methods of building the shed foundation are as follows.

I.The Slab Foundation Method

II.1.As in the previous method, select a suitable location for building the foundation and mark the land by driving wooden stakes into the four corners. Make sure the ground is level by checking the angles.2.Remove the dirt from the ground and dig a hole about 2.5 inches deep. Level the ground and remove the stakes.3.Mix cement and sand in a ratio of 1:8 and make a dry mixture. Pour this into the ground about 2 inches deep and pat it level. Starting from the corner and moving outwards, lay down the slabs. Use a spirit level to make sure all the foundations are firm and level.4.Finally check once more to be absolutely sure that the base is flat and square by measuring the diagonals. Remove any excess sand from the edges. Now you have a perfectly solid, level and firm foundation for building your shed.

II. The Concrete Floor Method

1.Use stakes and thread to mark out the ground for building the foundation. Take care that it should be at least 2 inch larger than the size of the shed. Measure the diagonals to ensure that the land is perfectly square.2.Dig the ground about six inches deep. Level the ground using a spade and firm the bottom soil. Take away the stakes.3.Cut timber boards for building the framework which will hold the concrete in place as it dries. Measure the diagonals to ensure that the framework is square. Finally, check if the framework is level.4.Lay down a covering of compressed gravel about 3 inches deep. Mix the cement with ballast in a ratio of 1:5. Keep adding small quantities of water the mixture as you mix but make sure it doesn’t become too diluted. Pour the concrete into the foundation and completely fill the framework to the top. The excess of concrete can be leveled down with the edge of a timber board by using a cutting motion along the entire top of the freshly laid concrete.5.If you are expecting rains then cover the concrete with plastic for a day. If there is excess of sunshine, cover the concrete with wet bags and periodically water them throughout the day. This will prevent the concrete from drying too quickly and developing cracks.

How Can I Lose Weight Daily Net Caloric Intake

By David Duane Wilson

Everyone asks, how much should I eat each day? Do I have to starve myself? I’m not an athlete, do I have to spend a bunch of time doing exercises? The answer to these questions is moderation. Our goal of gradual weight loss in the “How Can I Lose Weight Challenge” depends on understanding how to calculate the number of calories we should eat each day. The total amount of calories consumed daily minus the calories burned during dedicated physical activity gives us our Daily Net Caloric Intake. What we need to know, is what our desired weight is and how many calories our bodies need to maintain that desired weight. This number of calories is called our Daily Net Caloric Intake goal.

The Daily Net Caloric Intake number varies depending on whether you are male or female and your desired weight. The formula for figuring the net amount of calories a healthy person should intake per day to maintain a desired weight is as follows:

Your Desired Weight x 10(women) or 11(men) = Daily Net Calorie Intake to maintain a desired weight

An example for a woman desiring to weigh 150 pounds, the formula would be:

150 x 10 = 1500 daily net calorie intake

An example for a man desiring to weigh 200 pounds, the formula would be:

200 x 11 = 2200 daily net calorie intake

Once you and your Doctor have determined your desired weight, use the formula above to calculate the Daily Net Caloric Intake required to maintain that desired weight. Consume that amount of calories each and every day and your body will gradually lose or gain weight until the desired goal is achieved. The wild card in this formula is Physical Activity (with Doctor approval). The more exercise you do, the more calories you can eat.

What is also of great importance in this process is documentation. You need to write down everything you eat and drink plus calculate your Calories Burned with exercise. You can find the amount of calories burned from exercise in the Calories Burned Chart in your “Welcome Kit” at the website listed below. Subtract your Calories Burned from the Total of Calories Consumed and that number should equal your Desired Net Caloric Intake number.

Our goal is the gradual loss of one pound per week. If you are losing more than a pound per week, (with your Doctor’s permission) you need to cut back on your exercise or increase the number of calories eaten each day. If you are not losing a pound per week, then(with Doctor approval) you need to increase your physical activity or decrease the amount of calories taken in each day. Make these changes in small increments until you are losing one pound per week.

Everyone is different and this rule of thumb formula is just a starting point. You will have to adjust your calories and exercise throughout this process. The “How Can I Lose Weight Challenge” is not a race to lose weight but a permanent lifestyle change designed to gradually reach your desired weight.

It is also important to consult with your medical doctor before you start this lifestyle change and the exercise program of your choice. Make sure you are healthy enough to implement this process.
