Yes! A Natural Way to Reduce The Appearance of Cellulite!

One of my favorite parts of getting to interact with women from all over the world is the information that YOU provide me, and being able to share it with other women!

Below are some pretty interesting facts about cucumbers!  Yes, they do tighten the skin….just read below for more details!

*Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, Folic Acid, Calcium, Iron Magnesium, Phosphorus Potassium & Zinc- ALL which are great for healthy younger looking skin!

*Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before bed & wake up refreshed!  The sugar, B vitamins & electrolytes will replenish nutrients lost while you sleep!

*Looking for a fast way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool?  Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem areas for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer & reducing the visibility of cellulite!

*Cucumbers are a great way to fight off an afternoon snacking binge. Cucumbers have been used by explores for centuries to ward of starvation. I actually cut up a bunch on Sunday night and put them in baggies to grab as a quick snack throughout the week (I LOVE the Persian ones).

    7 Plastic Surgery Trends In 2011

    I found this blog by RealSelf very interesting so I decided to share it with my readers.

    Expect to see bigger rears, fewer wrinkles, and unfortunate botched jobs in the New Year, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). They’ve made a number of plastic surgery predictions for 2011:

    1. Brighter financial times lift faces

    ASAPS cites the economy improving as stimulating demand for facelifts and other facial rejuvenation surgery (procedures people put off due to the recession).

    2. More fillers, Botox, and Injectables

    The growth and popularity of cosmetic injectables (Botox, Dysport, Sculptra, Radiesse, Evolence, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane etc.) will continue to increase as products continue to evolve and new players enter the market.

    3. Massive weight loss leads to more skin tightening

    ASAPS says the number of patients seeking plastic surgery procedures for body contouring after dramatic weight loss (abdominoplasty, lower body lift, upper arm lift, etc.) will rise in 2011.  Check out Spa 10’s body toning treatments for improvements in skin tightening and toning.  http://www.thespa10.com/body_toning.php

    4. Changing out the breast implants

    As the boomer women age, so do their breast implants, points out ASAPS.  Breast implants will get replaced in 2011 and breast lifting will also be a trend.

    5. More botched plastic surgery cases

    ASAPS routinely reports terrible experiences consumers have with buying injectables overseas or on the web.  Additionally, they point to poor training and unqualified injectors causing harm. “Consumers looking for a bargain on cosmetic procedures will unfortunately lead to an increase in horror stories about ‘discount injectables’ bought offshore and cosmetic medicine and cosmetic surgical procedures performed by untrained or poorly trained practitioners,” predicts ASAPS.

    6. New ways to zap fat

    Consumers will increasingly seek out alternatives to liposuction that are non-invasive techniques for fat removal (freezing, zapping, lasering)

    7. Getting that celebrity buttocks

    ASAPS sees the influence of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez on women who want a shapely rear-end. “In the coming year patients will be seeking posterior body lifts, buttock lifts, surgical and nonsurgical buttock augmentations to shape and augment their buttocks,” explains ASAPS.
