Cellulite is basically fat deposited in the skin. They can be ugly and a real bother most especially to women. Cellulite make the skin look kind of lumpy and dimply. They usually occur in the thighs, arm and buttocks and can be a real problem when you attempt to wear shorts, miniskirts and sleeveless tops during summer time. Yeah.. I know, summer is around the corner….

So since cellulite is fat, the prevention and treatment would have to reduce calorie and fat intake and burn those fat away. I can think of a few tricks that you can try.

  • Check your diet and modify it. The main cause of cellulites is too much fat and calorie intake. It would do good to change what you eat and how you eat. Limit eating fatty food and stick to more fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables make you feel full without those unwanted calories. Choose carefully in terms of food preparation. Avoid too much frying as it uses oil which translates into fat. Steaming, boiling and grilling are good healthy ways to cook your food.
  • Drink lots of water. Water improves skin elasticity and flushes out toxins and free radicals paving way to more healthy skin. Make sure to drink eight glasses of water a day at the very least.
  • Increase your physical activity. It is not only important for you to prevent adding more cellulite but also to banish the existing ones. Your cellulite will not disappear if you sit around all day. Make sure you do some cellulite exercises for example daily walks, a jog or do a certain sport every weekend. Anything that keeps you moving will help in getting rid of your cellulites.

Bacterial vaginosis is an infection in the vaginal tract that commonly occurs in women aged 20 to 30. Bacterial vaginosis is a result of the imbalance between healthy and unhealthy bacteria in the vaginal tract.

Common BV symptoms of bacterial vaginosis include itching, excessive white or grey vaginal discharge and pain during urination or sexual intercourse. The most common problem with bacterial vaginosis is that women who have once been diagnosed with it often experience it again.

Here are a few tips to prevent bacterial vaginosis from recurring.

  • Maintain proper hygiene. The easiest and most logical way to prevent unhealthy bacteria from causing infection in the vaginal tract is probably to wash at least once a day. Make sure that you wash using water and mild soap or an antibacterial feminine wash. See to it that you wipe from front to back to avoid bacteria from the anus from entering the vaginal tract and causing more problems. It is also a good practice to wash up after sexual intercourse to flush out bacteria. Even urinating after sex can help flush out bacteria!
  • Stick to one partner. One common cause of bacterial vaginosis is having multiple partners and thus having more chances of contacting bacteria. Although bacterial vaginosis is not passed between men and women, changes in the normal environment of the vaginal tract by having multiple partners will most likely lead to bacterial vaginosis.
  • Avoid douching. Douching interferes with the normal environment of the vagina.
  • Opt for cotton panties.
  • Do not wear tight jeans or shorts.

Hope these tips can help you away from BV infection. However, home remedies for BV prevention can be found by clicking here.

Is homemade dog food better than commercial dry food?

Preparing a homemade dog food for your dog can be very heartwarming and ideal for you. At last, you have veered away from those commercial kibbles that are mostly full of preservatives, chemicals and non-nutritious fillers!

But have you ever thought of the risks involved in feeding your canine buddy yourself? Here are a few things to ponder on and a few tips to consider if you are pushing through with making homemade dog food for your pet.

There’s a reason why commercial kibbles can be quite expensive. Aside from the machinery, the packaging and the brand, pet companies also need to pay for dieticians and pet nutrition experts who monitor and regulate the contents of the dog food.

They ensure that vitamins, minerals, protein and other good stuff are present in each bag of dog food. By feeding your dog with homemade dog food, you are owning up to this responsibility that these experts have studied years to perfect.

Make sure that you do thorough research on what your dog needs and remember that each dog’s nutritional needs are different depending on the size, age and breed.

Maintain cleanliness throughout the making process of homemade dog food. Wash utensils in warm water to prevent bacteria. Thoroughly wash ingredients in running water and if you are attempting a raw dog food diet, make sure to properly store ingredients like meat at the appropriate temperature to avoid being spoilt.

Ensure that you are not adding toxic food ingredients into your homemade dog food recipe and be careful in handling eggs and other poultry products that are easily contaminated.

And REMEMBER, not all human consumable food is suitable for your beloved dog.  For example,  you should not feed chocolate to your dog as it is harmful to them. Be careful to check before preparing your homemade dog food.
