Remove Paint Fumes in Minutes. Tips in Action:

tipsfromtia.com paint brush

Paint fumes can be bothersome. Paint smells can linger for a long time causing nausea, sinus issues and just make the air downright appalling.

Here’s a quick tip that may sound unbelievable, but it works!

Grab a medium sized onion. Cut it open and divide into 4 or 6 sections. Place in a bowl or a tray. Put in the area where paint fumes are the worst. The paint fumes will start to disappear within 10 minutes. It is suggested, to leave the onion out until it dries and curls to remove all fumes. This generally takes about two days.

Oddly, the room will not smell overwhelming like onion. Plus, there are bonuses; the onion smell fades quickly once removed, and the onion will also grab bacteria and viruses out of the air as well. This tip will leave you with a health air in the room.

Removing Hickies or Passion Marks as I Like to Call Them.

By Tia Cristy

tipsfromtia.com sex

 

Problem: Hey Tia. Sometimes in the heat of the moment my boyfriend will leave hickies on my neck. I work in an office and I don’t want to look…you know. I use make up to cover it up but, you can still see them. What can I do to cover it up?

Tip from Tia: There is noting wrong with having extravagant passion for one another. Celebrate it. But, I totally understand that you don’t want to advertise your sex life, on your neck. Well, it’s better to get rid of the hickies or passion marks as I like to call them, then just covering them up. Hickies are bruising of the skin, where it has been sucked. The capillaries have broken and rush towards the layers of skin. Now, those capillaries are trapped, and since it is not a sever injury, you can break them away from their cluster, that is giving a bruised appearance and make the blood flow natural, around the area again. (If it was an injury that cause bruising I wouldn’t recommend trying to get rid of a bruise, you could possibly just hurt yourself further)

So, an easy enough tip to remove the hickey is, grab a lipstick cap or a small bottle cap with smooth edges. Place the hollow end to the skin, and twist the cap into the bruised skin repeatedly, around the whole area. It may feel tender while doing it, but you don’t want to hurt yourself. The area will be red when you’re done.

Apply make up to cover the area, if the foundation alone isn’t covering add a little bit of cornstarch to the foundation to thicken it up and apply. The hickey should reduce in color within a few hours to a day, repeat process if necessary.

Root Causes Of Back Pain: Relief Treatment

Back pain is the major source of complains among middle-aged and older men and women in every country. This might be because the back supports and carries most of the other body parts and therefore it’s subject to a lot of pressure. For one to understand the causes of back pain, it’s important to know the several types of pain.

Types Of Back Pain

Non-Specific

This is the most common type of back pain out there. It occurs suddenly and acutely and more often than not it will go away as fast as it came. The term non-specific usually means that doctors can’t really put a finger on what is causing the pain because it can’t be seen in tests. This type of pain is caused by bad posture; sitting or sleeping, lifting heavy things and over-exerting oneself. Weight also causes non-specific back pain by putting pressure on the back area.

Chronic Pain

This is the kind of back pain that stays with you for a very long time. It can be worse sometimes but it never really goes away like non-specific pain. Doctors say that the main cause of chronic back pain is mental and emotional stress. This means that until one learns to deal with the stress the pain will continue.

Lower Back Pain

This can be chronic or non-specific but more often than not it can be diagnosed by doctors. Lower back pain in most cases is a symptom of another problem such as appendicitis, bladder infection, kidney disease and most problems affecting the reproductive organs. This is also called referred back pain.

Specific Back Pain

Unfortunately, the back is vulnerable to many other problems that affect discs in the vertebrae and the entire spinal cord as well;

  • Nerve impingement-this is where a disc is herniated and starts pushing or piercing the nerve root. Sciatica is the best example of this and it’s extremely painful.
  • Spinal degeneration-this causes the spinal canal to narrow due to loss of moisture and volume. In less serious cases it just causes stiffness and inflammation but if it gets bad it can cause sciatica.
  • Other conditions that can be clearly seen in scans include tumors, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, arthritis; injury caused trauma, bacterial infection and much more.

Relief Treatment Of Back Pain

After doctors have asked the right questions and done a physical exam, they are able to know exactly what the problem is and treat it accordingly. Referred causes of pain are treated with antibiotics while stress related causes are referred to a psychiatrist. Pain causes by strain and musculoskeletal factors is treated with exercise, yoga, pain relievers, massage, muscle relaxers and heat therapy. Chiropractors are the best doctors to treat back pain using natural methods. Losing weight and acupuncture have also worked very well in reducing back pain.

EHIC will come in handy to get treatment in extreme cases of back problems that need more strict measures like epidural injections that relieve pain by using steroids to stop inflammation or electrical devices that redirect pain signals. For the worst back pain in the world, doctors recommend surgery to correct any major problem causing the pain.

It’s that time of year, where the flu is on the rise. To get a shot or not? Does the the flu shot give you the flu? The truth is the shot is filled with dead flu cells, to help your body build up antibodies.

Here’s wishing us all, a healthy flu season!

Smelly feet can be offensive to those around you, but it’s almost criminal, if you can smell your own feet and are appalled.

If being in your shoes all day are leaving you with smelly feet, there’s an easy fix. Put a half cup of vinegar with warm water into a foot soak.

Soaking for 20 minutes can restore the PH balance and kill any bacteria or fungus that is trying to grow. Wipe out shoes with vinegar on a cotton ball to remove the bacteria inside the shoe.

Quickie: It’s Quick Enough to Wash Your Hands.
Washing Hands with Soap

Probably the most simple quick tip ever. Wash your hands. You can sanitize hands as quick as singing your ABC’s. Soap up with antibacterial soap while singing and rinse at the end of the song. This amount of time is said to be the proper amount of scrub time to rid the hands of almost all germs and viruses.

There are so many strategies for woman trying to get pregnant, but is there anything a man can do or vitamins take to up their chances?

For those trying to have babies, that don’t have any known medical issues, there are several things a guy can add to his system, to rev up the swimmers to help them reach their mark.

Adding strawberries into a man’s diet is a good way to start up the sperm. Strawberries are also known as a sexy fruit. It’s also packed with Vitamin C which is great to build the immune system.

Oysters are known as another sexy food, but they do have benefit for helping in reproduction. If you aren’t into oysters, you won’t get as much zinc but, peanuts could help too.

Having a good diet and good health is a good step in the right direction to procreate. Guys, remember, if eating something particular makes you feels sluggish, it probably makes you boys feel sluggish too.

Adding a shot of caffeine is a good tip to help give a boost on ovulation day. But, too much caffeine on a daily basis can have the opposite affect.

Most important tip, don’t put too much pressure or stress on one another. Stress can lower chances which can lead to disappointment and agitation. Enjoy practicing with your partner. If you have any medical questions or concerns, contact your doctor to talk about your goals.

Liquid Paper as Nail Polish. Stupid Tip of the Day.

Stupid Tip of the Day: Liquid Paper as Nail Polish.

 

white out tipsfromtia.com

 

OK, so we may have all been there. Got some place to go and your nails look atrocious? Maybe you’re at the office and happy hour is calling your name but you nails are screaming ewww! Or you could be bored in the classroom, and painting your nails would be a good way to pass the time, but all you have is a “correction” bottle.

Liquid paper dries quickly, as we know, so applying a coat, will hide those nails from the world. Here’s the only problem with that quick trick. It will save you embarrassment for the happy hour, but people tend to leave it on till it flakes off. Don’t do that!

Take off your quick concealer as soon as you get home. Or if you have the option of polish or liquid paper use the nail polish. The fumes in liquid paper are strong, you will be able to smell the product days after it dries, and the chips that flake off are unhealthy so you don’t want it to flake off by itself and end up in your foods and eventually in your stomach.
