Top 10 Skincare Tips

lets see these are the top 10 skincare tips, why i choose beauty and health related topics today because i think womens investing more in beauty parlour like $100 jar of moisturizer? but many beautiful women's could not afford that. There are lot of new beauty products in markets and everyone claim they will grow you as a pamela anderson, paris hilton or britney spears, but aging is natural process. So these natural top ten skin tips for you and your beautiful face. :)

# Protect yourself from the sun -- use sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight between the hours of 10 and 2.

# Don't -- I repeat -- don't smoke. Your skin is a large organ and it needs a lot of circulation. Smoking impairs that dramatically. That's why smokers' skin looks dull and gray. Instead of having oxy-generated blood delivered to the surface of the skin, they're getting poisons and oxidants.

# Get adequate rest and nutrition.

# Protect yourself from stress -- both emotional and environmental stress.

# Wash your face twice a day and put on the proper treatment product. I'm amazed when women tell me they don't wash their face in the morning. A lot of icky stuff collects overnight -- dead skin cells, dirt, and dust!

# Don't neglect certain areas of the skin. Elbows, heels, neck, and decolletage need moisturizing, and your scalp and the tops of your feet need sun protection.

# Touch your face less and wash your hands more! Don't get too surgical on yourself. It's very tempting to pick, poke, squeeze, and scratch in front of the mirror. But the more you traumatize the skin, the greater your risk of scarring. Apply treatment products and let them work.

# Keep your makeup clean. Replace the sponges in your compact on a regular basis. Now and then, toss the whole works and start fresh -- the average shelf life for cosmetics is 6 to 12 months. Don't buy products so expensive that you'll be heartbroken if you have to throw them away.

# Exercise moderation. More is not always better. Moisturizer, for example, is the most overused product in America. We've been bamboozled by cosmetic companies into thinking every square inch of our body has to be slathered. And it's simply not true. Exfoliators are another thing to be careful with. Used too often, they overacidify and irritate your skin.

# Beware of counter girls. If it were up to them, you'd be in the bathroom for two and a half hours each morning -- putting 80 layers on your face. Keep your regimen simple. And when you do add a new product, do it gradually so your skin has time to adjust. Each skincare or makeup product has an average of 20 to 40 ingredients -- you're introducing 20 to 40 potential allergens to your face every time you try something new.

Health workers gain reprieve in Libyan court

Health workers gain reprieve in Libyan court

Five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor at the center of intense international negotiations won a reprieve on Sunday, when Libya's highest court overturned their death sentences on charges they deliberately infected children with AIDS.

The United States and European Union have made it clear that their future relations with Moammar Gadhafi depend upon the outcome of the case, but the Libyan leader faces high emotions at home, where relatives of the infected children angrily protested Sunday's decision in Tripoli. Some set fire to tires and clashed with police. Four demonstrators were arrested.

The Libyan government issued no immediate statement on the court ruling. In Washington, State Department spokesman Justin Higgins said "our understanding is that this decision is a positive development since it removes the risk of the death sentence being carried out." The nurses and doctor are widely expected to receive lighter sentences in a retrial ordered by the supreme court.

Local networks herald health-care revolution

A long overdue revolution is taking place in health care across Ontario. But the welcome creation of 14 "local health integration networks" to help manage the $33 billion health-care system has barely registered with most Ontarians. And the initiative has provoked only modest controversy so far at Queen's Park.Ontario is the last province to embrace the concept of having regional health authorities control dollars and levels of care. Roy Romanow, former head of a royal commission on health care, endorses the plan, as do veteran medical professionals.While Health Minister George Smitherman admits the initiative is hardly "a vote-getter," it should ensure that public dollars are better spent while ending wasteful duplication. MOre...

Liberals face rocky road on local health-care plan Lofty rhetoric, but idea is to save money

Beneath the media radar screen, which is fixed on the federal election, the Ontario government has embarked on a radical reform of the delivery of health care in the province.Specifically, Health Minister George Smitherman last week introduced legislation to empower the recently established Local Health Integration Networks.There are 14 such "networks" spread across the province. Today, they are mere shells, but under last week's legislation, they would control the purse strings for hospitals, nursing homes and home-care providers in their geographical areas — a function now performed centrally by the ministry of health at Queen's Park. MOre....

Long-term care just can't keep up

If there are common truths the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care needs to take to heart, it's these simple and certain axioms: Everybody ages; and as they do, they will need specialized care.Why, then, is it so difficult for the ministry to accept these truths?In virtually every community in Ontario, local health-care officials are struggling to cope with the increasing number of seniors and the care they need. In most cases, there simply are not enough beds available in long-term care facilities to accommodate the growing number of Ontarians who need them.In Sudbury, patients have been stacking up in the Sudbury Regional Hospital because there are no beds available in long-term care facilities for them. Last year, hospital officials applied for and received permission to begin moving these patients outside of the community, to Gore Bay, Espanola and, more recently, to Parry Sound.A ministry spokesman said the province is "working hard to find a solution." But the crisis has been worsening for more than a year and all we've got are short-term, stop-gap measures.MOre....

Health official: Smoke ban by 2007

Health official: Smoke ban by 2007

London | November 28, 2005 12:01:13 AM IST
Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt says it is "only a matter of time" before there is a complete ban on smoking in public places in England and Wales.

Speaking on the BBC's Sunday AM, she did not give a specific timescale, but said a total ban would be "simpler".

But she also defended the current proposed ban exempts pubs not serving food and some private clubs.

A total ban is due to start in Scotland next year and in Northern Ireland the year after.

"I've said several times before I think it is only a matter of time before we get to a total ban," she said.

Last month there was debate in Cabinet over possibly pushing ahead for a ban without exemptions, but after days of behind-the-scenes argument that proposal was rejected, the BBC said

Allianz posts 39 percent increase in Q3 pre-tax profits

Allianz AG, Europe's biggest insurer has announced an increase of 39 percent in the third-quarter pre-tax profits to €1.66 billion. This is in line with expectations even though the company was hard hit by the twin hurricanes in the United States Gulf Coast region, which cost it an estimated €753 million.

Net profits soared by 70 percent to €794 million in the three months ending September. However, this figure ended up short by about €60 million on what was expected. Pre-tax profits in Allianz' property and casualty insurance took a hit of 9 percent and fell to €866 million mainly because of the Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

However these were compensated in a large measure by the increase in the profits in its banks especially its subsidiary Dresdner Bank where profits were up from €13 million to €223 million in the third quarter. Allianz Management board member Helmut Perlet was confident that the company would meet its full-year expectations and post a profit of 10 percent. Click Here
