  • 冬末减肥啦In winter, we exercise less due to the cold weather which slows down metabolism. Additionally, we like to eat greasy and spicy food to keep our bodies warm. This kind of food is highest fat and highest calories and makes us feel thirsty. When we drink a lot of water without exercising, it is easy to have a edema that is why we can easily put on weight. Plus is we wear thick clothes covering our bodies, we lower our standard for body shape. Luckily, it is not too late to get healthy. 1. Eat less meat and more vegetables. If you are not a vegetarian, choose more fish and chicken, rather than red meat. Meanwhile drink more yoghourt for adjusting. 少吃肉,多食蔬菜。如果吃肉的话,最好是多吃鱼肉,鸡肉,少吃牛羊肉。另外,多喝些酸奶。 /201103/128042。
  • Standing tall, feeling confident, believing in yourself — these are all important ways to feel your best. But as any woman who's ever stood in front of a mirror can tell you, beauty secrets count too!While the way we look may be only one part of who we are, it is still a part of us. And feeling that you look your best can be a real confidence booster.Looking your best doesn't have to be complicated or expensive, either. Experts say most of us really only need to pay attention to a few basic beauty secrets — essentials that can help you look and feel great without spending a lot of time or money.To help you find the beauty tips that really work, WebMD talked to top skin care and beauty experts, who parted with their personal tips for looking great:Beauty Tip 1: Never Underestimate the Power of MoisturizerWhether your skin is dry, normal, or even oily, if you can only afford one skin care product, experts say, your dollars will be well spent on a good moisturizer."Sometimes, all you really need is a good moisturizer and a mild cleanser, and you can take years off your face," says New York University professor Rhoda Narins, MD, president of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. When skin is dry, says Narins, every wrinkle is accentuated, making you look older.If you're in your 20s or 30s, doctors say, moisturizers will give you some of the protection you need to keep skin from prematurely aging."In your 20s and early 30s, a good moisturizer can take the place of a lot of products," says Park Avenue plastic surgeon Darrick Antell, MD.So what exactly is a "good" moisturizer? Dermatologist Charles E. Crutchfield III, MD, describes it this way: "It's a product that will do anything from gently adding moisture, to sealing in the moisture you've achieved, to helping your skin produce more moisture — and which type you choose should be based on your skin's individual needs."If skin is normal to dry, look for moisturizers containing alpha hydroxy acids. They can help skin produce more moisture on its own, Crutchfield says. Such products include Neutrogena Advanced Solutions Daily Moisturizerand Anew Advanced All In One Cream by Avon.Products such as AmLactin XL — the over-the-counter version of the prescription cream Lac-Hydrin — not only contain alpha hydroxy acids, but also a new ceramide technology to seal in moisture."You put on when you skin is slightly damp, and it locks in all the water," says Crutchfield, an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School.If skin is very dry, he also suggests products using a technology called vesicular emulsion."This technology uses microscopic spheres that are alternating layers of moisture and water that slowly release throughout the day, so you get continual moisturization," says Crutchfield. Products using this type of technology include Atopalm and Curél.If skin is oily, look for a light, gentle moisturizer — but don't skip this step, cautions Crutchfield."Oil is not moisture, and even if you have excess oil you still need moisture," he says. Recommended products include Aveeno with Colloidal Oatmeal, Vanicream Light, Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer, or Cetaphil Moisturizer.Beauty Tip 2: Sunscreen Is Your Best Antiaging Product.Before you see the plastic surgeon, before you plunk down half a paycheck on that pricey anti-aging cream, in fact, before you do anything, put on sunscreen.While most of us know it reduces the risk of skin cancer, did you also know it's an amazing beauty secret that can help keep skin looking young?The reason, say experts, is that when sunscreen blocks out the sun's damaging rays, it also blocks their aging effects."The sun impacts collagen production in the skin, and without collagen, skin won't naturally maintain that plump, moist, youthful, wrinkle-free look," says Antell. Get enough sun exposure, he says, and skin will wrinkle long before its time.Without the protection of sunscreen, just a few minutes of daily sun exposure over the years can cause noticeable changes in how skin looks and feels, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.Not only will you see more wrinkles and fine lines, but also more freckles, age spots, and spider veins. Skin itself can look rough and leathery or loose and slack — all thanks to the sun.Sunscreen can protect your skin from these damaging rays, so that even if you do spend time outdoors, your face is less likely to give away your age.Crutchfield advises choosing a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher. Because sun breaks down its effectiveness over time, if you're going to be in direct sunlight for an extended period, reapply every hour or two.For longer-lasting results, he recommends Melashade, a sunscreen using new technology that remains in force hours longer than most other products.Another option: Use your regular sunscreen before putting on makeup (it should go on first, before anything). Then, for touch-ups, use a light, translucent mineral powder to add extra protection throughout the day."These powders contain a natural sunscreen, and since they generally don't build up on the skin you can keep adding protection all day long," says Crutchfield. Products include Glo Minerals Powder, Neutrogena Healthy Defense Protective Powder, and BareEscentuals Mineral Veil.Beauty Tip 3: Choose Your Cleanser WiselyIf you're a "soap and water" girl (or guy), you may want to rethink your cleansing strategy. Dermatologists say that one of the best beauty tips around is to use the gentlest cleanser you can find — and use it sparingly."While the temptation may be great to wash your face several times a day (or more if skin is oily), not only will over-cleansing not help you, if you're using a harsh product — particularly soap — you could be harming your skin," says Crutchfield.Wash your face too often — more than twice a day — and you can damage the natural lipid barrier, the protective mantle of lubrication that keeps skin looking and feeling healthy."Once that protection is lost, and the integrity of the skin barrier disrupted, skin becomes dry — which means it can crack, peel, itch, burn, sting, or any combination," says Crutchfield. It also means you can look older than your years.The solution: Wash skin no more than twice a day and choose your cleanser wisely. Crutchfield's three top favorites: Dove Unscented Bar, Cetaphil, and Vanicream Cleanser.Beauty Tip 4: Use the Right Tools for the Right JobYou can have the best eyeshadow money can buy, the world's most luxurious foundation, a bronzer straight from the cosmetic bag of a supermodel. But if you don't have the right tools to apply them, their benefits will be lost. That's the advice of Smashbox Cosmetic's director of global artistry, Holly Mordini."Using the right brushes, the right application tools — it's key to making the products go on the way they are intended and to give you the look that you want. For a professional makeup artist, the tools are as important as the products," says Mordini, who has painted and puffed some of Hollywood's most famous faces.What constitutes the "right" tools? Brushes should be soft and feel gentle on the skin, but also have substance so the product can be moved to the surface of your skin. If you dip a brush in shadow or blush and the color falls off before you make it to your face, that's a bad brush, experts say.If you don't know what to buy, you can't go wrong if you purchase the tools sold with a high-quality beauty line, Mordini says. Most, she says, are created to give your application a professional touch and to work best with each product in the line."It also makes putting on makeup incredibly easy, plus it's often what sets apart women who have the 'professional makeup look' and those that don't," she says.Beauty Tip 5: Update Hair and Makeup Every 2 YearsIf you walk into your high school reunion and hear a chorus of "You haven't changed a bit," run, run, RUN to the nearest beauty salon!Experts say that if you can't even remember the last time you changed your hair and makeup, it's way overdue."Ideally, your image, including hair and makeup, should be updated at least every two years — and sooner if the styles change dramatically," says Beverly Hills hair expert and QVC personality Nick Chavez.By keeping your look current, says Chavez, you also look younger and more modern. "Nothing dates a woman more than outdated hair and makeup," says Chavez.If it's been a while since you've had a change, visit the makeup counters at your favorite department or beauty store, and don't be afraid to ask for help. Most of the better lines are sold by makeup artists who can quickly catch you up on what's new.To find the best new hairstyle without commitment, try wig shopping! It's a fun, fast, and easy way to try on styles and even colors before making a hair appointment. /200804/36740。
  • If you believe you are only as young as you feel, maybe you should be living in Kenya.A government minister has proposed changing the legal definition of youth to anyone aged from 15 to 50 -- a two-decade jump from the currentceilingof 30 years.If passed by parliament, that would put youths within five years of Kenya's official retirement age of 55.Youth Affairs Minister Muhammad Kuti was ed in local media as saying the government plans to change the law so more people can access a 1 billion shilling ( million) youth fund established this year.The proposal hasrankledsome in the east African nation, where critics say the reform agenda of President Mwai Kibaki,74, has stalled because he has filled his cabinet with members of his own age group."That is utter nonsense," auditor Catherine Kagweria said of the proposed change. "We need younger, more spry leaders to take over from these geriatrics." 如果你觉得自己依然年轻,也许应该选择去肯尼亚。肯尼亚政府的一名部长提议将"青年"的法律定义修改为"年龄在15至50岁之间的人",将目前的30岁上限整整提高了20年。如果这个提案在议会上通过,那么只差5年到达法定退休年龄55岁的人都还是青年。肯尼亚当地媒体援引青年事务部部长默罕莫德·库提的话说,肯尼亚政府计划修改这个规定,这样,更多的人就可以享用于今年设立的10亿先令(1400万美元)的青年基金。这个提议引起了国内一些人的不满,批评人士说,74岁的姆瓦伊o齐贝吉总统所组建内阁的成员都是和他年龄相仿的人,他的改革计划都已经搁置了。审计署成员凯瑟琳·卡格维里尔评价"青年"定义修改提案说:"这完全是胡说。肯尼亚需要的不是这些老气横秋的领袖,而是年轻、充满活力的领导人。" Vocabulary:ceiling:an upper limit, especially as set by regulation(最高限度;尤指规定的最高限度;如:price ceiling 价格最高限)rankle:to cause persistent irritation or resentment(惹怒;激怒) /200809/47192。
  • 1.Soap is Bad for Your Skin.Traditionally, soap was a mix of animal fats and fruit or vegetable oils. This combination has a higb PH and is drying to skin, particularly to aging skin. These days, however, soaps are formulated with synthetic elements that are milder than traditional soap, and therefore suitable to cleanse skin. Most soaps have emollients(moisturisers) added, so they are beneficial for the skin. If you prefer the feeling cleansing with soap provides, don't let those purveyors of fine skincare bully you--there's nothing wrong with using soap.2.Dry Skin Causes Wrinkles.Around eighty percent of lines and wrinkles are caused by the sun. The other twenty percent are the result of facial expressions such as smiling and frowning. If you smoke, the appearance of these wrinkles is accelerated. Also, as one ages the skin makes less natural oil and this makes the wrinkling more apparent. A moisturiser will help temporarily smooth away some early fine lines. Protect yourself from the sun, and you impede the development of fine lines. Remember, a tan is your skin's reaction to an injury.3.It Can Be Too Late to Start Wearing Sunscreen.The cumulative effect of the sun's rays causes a multitude of damage to skin, but it's never too late to start protecting skin from the sun. There is clinical evidence that once you start protecting the skin, it has the ability to repair itself. This repair is not going to happen overmight; it's a gradual process that can take a couple years to yield significant results. Do your skin a favour and start the day with a layer of sunscreen. And remember to wear sunscreen during the winter. Just because you don't feel the sun's rays, doesn't mean its harmful UVA and UVB rays are not penetrating your skin. If you can see shadows, you need to protect your skin.4.Everyone needs Moisturiser.According to dermatologists, you only need a moisturiser if your skin experiences the following: redness, scaliness or itchiness. These symptoms are more frequently seen during the colder seasons. That everyone needs a moisturiser is a multimillion dollar myth the cosmetic companies propagate in order to make you hand over your hard-earned cash.5.For Best Results You Should Stick to One Product Line.Another fallacy promoted by sales reps. Certainly, you may love how all the products work together but using products from different lines won't kill you. Every cosmetics line has products you should avoid because they contain irritating ingredients, inadequate amounts of sunscreen, or moisturisers that over-saturate the skin. Experiment and find the products that are right for you.6.Expensive Products are Better Because the Ingredients are Better.Completely untrue. All cosmetics contain standard cosmetic ingredients. They can't contain anything else, as drugs do, or they would be regulated differently. The quality levels of cosmetic ingredients don't vary that much, and every company that buys cosmetic-grade ingredients all buy the same quality. Expensive cosmetics are predominantly all hype. Estée Lauder Crème de la Mer is a very costly cream that doesn't contain anything particularly extraordinary or unique, unless you want to believe that seaweed extract can be worth huge sums of money. Seaweed extract is neither a rare nor expensive ingredient. How expensive can it be to stick some seaweed extract, mineral oil, glycerine, plant oils, minerals and vitamins into a jar?7.Eating Chocolate and Fried Foods Causes Bad Skin.No, it's not because I'm a chocoholic! Studies have shown that pimples are caused from factors such as extreme stress or dead skin cells blocking pores. However, eating fresh fruits and raw vegetables does promote a healthier complexion due to their vitamins and minerals.8.Frequent Trimmings Can Make Hair Grow Faster.Hair, whether it is cut or not, grows about half an inch per month. Hair does grow slightly faster in the summer, but that is due to hormones rather than the stylist's scissors. A worrying trend among young Chinese girls is to rub a paste made of crushed contraceptive pill into their scalp and hair. This does not lead to stronger, glossier, faster growing hair. In fact, the hormones, while initially improving the condition of the hair, quichly lead to hair loss.P.S. You can't repair split ends. The only way to rid of split ends is to cut them off and prevent them in the future with good hair care. A good trim will eliminate split ends, making hair look healthier and livelier.9.Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back Darker and Coarser.As above. Cutting or shaving any hair on your body does not affect it growth. Repeatad nauseam.10.You Can Get Rid Of Cellulite.The truth is, nothing can be done to permanently eliminate cellulite--not even liposuction. The removal of cellulite remains one of the holy grails of cosmetic dermatology. It doesn't matter whether you're fat or thin, rich or poor, luck of the gene pool determines who will and won't get cellulite. Take heart though, you can, however, temporarily reduce its orange peel-like appearance. Specialist firming creams containing caffeine tighten and smooth the skin, while basic moisturisers will also work to hydrate and swell the skin, making cellulite a little less obvious. Slap on a bit of fake tan to aid camouflage. /200812/59425。
  • It seems that despite the advances humans have made in practically every field and interest, stress and stressful situations can never be completely eliminated. If anything, the faster phase by which humans lead their lives these days only exacerbate the stress.There are two types of stress. The short-term or acute stress brought about by immediate stressors or factors or the chronic or long-term stress resulting from on-going stressors. The gravity by which a stressor can affect a person all depends on the person’s capacity to deal with stress. Some factors may easily stress out one person and not affect another.External stressors such as the environment may also bring about stress. Internal factors such as intense worry may also affect a person. Some stressful stressors include: hunger, extreme weather conditions, noise, crowding, isolation and hunger. Chronic stress may be the result of long-term abusive relationships, a high-pressure career, financialworries and even high expectations.Financial worry is one of the most common causes for stress. Financial obligations often cause strain in both the personal and professional life of a person. When a person cannot make ends meet, he often becomes dissatisfied with his life and the kind of work he does. Stressful romantic relationships are also common. Sometimes, relationships do not even have to be abusive to be stressful, just meeting a partner’s expectations can cause stress. Being let down causes stress. Even the most well behaved children can occasionally cause strain in the relationships of couples. The divorce of parents may affect children negatively. Sometimes something as tragic as an accident or a loved one’s death can cause immediate and long-term stress. Both women and men may struggle with body image, which can cause them to stress.For acute stress, just avoiding the environment or situation can ease the stress. Being in a crowded, noisy place for example can cause one’s blood pressure to slightly increase. But the answer to this problem is simple- avoid noisy and cramped places. For chronic stress such as a highly pressurized work environment, it may not be easy to just quit or walk away. These types of stress need to be dealt with and there are a number of ways to limit the stress or to lower the stress level.For some just taking a break from the stress can make a great difference. This means taking a short break at work to eat or . Sometimes a person needs to take a 2-day leave or even a month long vacation to de-stress. Other ways to deal with stress include listening to relaxing music, talking to friends or just watching a feel-good movie. Training one’s self to accept disappointments, increase the self-esteem and develop a positive outlook in life is also a big help in conquering stressful situations. One of the best ways still to limit the stress in one’s life is by leading a healthy lifestyle and exercising regularly. Exercise is known to release endorphins in the body that in turn reduces anxiety and depression. 似乎不论是处在任何领域或行业中的先进者们,都不能完全摆脱各种压力和紧张的境遇.而这种压力在人们的生活中也与日俱增.压力分为两种类型.短期或急性的压力来自于直接的刺激或因素,而持久或慢性压力则来自于持续进行中的紧张和刺激.刺激的严重性可使得一个人耗费所有精力去解除这些压力.而一些因素导致的压力有时也可在不防碍其他人的情况下把一个人击垮.一些外部的刺激如环境等因素可以令人产生压力.而例如过度的忧虑等内在因素也可以影响到人们.一些可以令人产生紧迫感的刺激包括:饥饿,极端恶劣的气候, 噪音,拥挤现象,孤立和欲望等.慢性压力则可能源于长期的复杂关系,一种高压职业,财政恐慌,甚至是他人强烈的期望.财政恐慌是导致压力最普遍的原因之一.财政危机可使得一个人产生个人生活和工作上的双重压力.如果一个人不能做到收相抵,他就会对自己的生活和所做的工作感到不满.令人产生压力的复杂关系也普遍存在.这种关系会使人产生紧迫感,有时仅仅是为了达到伙伴所期望的结果变可产生压力.而失望也可导致压力的产生.甚至一直表现良好的孩子也会由于父母的关系而产生过度疲劳和紧张.父母的离异会对孩子产生消极影响.有时一些悲剧的发生,如意外事故或爱人的死亡会引起直接的长期压力.另外,男女之间为了极力保持和提升自己的个人形象,也会使他们产生压力.对于急性压力,仅以改变环境或局势便可逐渐减轻压力的程度.例如,处于拥挤和吵杂的场所会使人的血压升高.然而解决这个问题其实很简单--那就是尽量避免去吵杂和狭窄的地方.而对于长期处在高压工作环境造成的慢性压力,最简单的方法就是离开职位或外出散心.这几种类型的压力待于解决,而且有许多方法可以限制这些压力或减轻压力的程度.然而,要想真正摆脱这些压力却有很大差别.这就意味着要暂时离开工作而去吃东西或进行阅读和学习.有时一个人需要离开两天甚至是一个月之久去解除压力.还有其它解除压力的方法包括听轻松的音乐,与朋友们交谈或看一部令人愉快的电影.而训练自己承担失望的勇气,提升自信心以及积极地展望生活前景也对战胜窘迫的困境有极大帮助.减轻压力的最行之有效的方法就是采取健康的生活方式并且持之以恒.众所周知,运动就是排解体内有害物质从而缓解忧虑和沮丧最好的方式. /200803/32753。
