Can’t Keep your Eye’s Open? Tips on Triggers:

Tips on Triggers: Can’t Keep your Eye’s Open?
tipsfromtia.com (10)

The day is long and you didn’t get enough sleep, but you need to get through just a little longer. Your eyes are starting to close and you can’t control it.

Here’s a sensitive trigger point that can help you get a jolt to the eyes quickly. At the base of your head where it meets the neck is your occipital. Slightly rub on both sides with a light massage. This will give your eyes a burst of energy.  Don’t rub too hard. Too much pressure can cause damage, so be gentle to your sight.

It doesn’t always last long, so make sure you’re not operating heavy machinery, including driving, relying on this trigger point to get you to your finish line, but it will give you an ability to make it through that file or that end of the day board meeting.

Stupid Tip Of The Day; cooking oil to a hot frying pan

tipsfromtia.comtipsfromtia.comTipsfromTia.com oil

Don’t do it! If you don’t know what happens, ask a fireman! It can burst out of control in a blink of an eye.

 If cooking, and you need to add oil, remove pan from heat, allow it to cool for a couple minutes, and then you can add extra cooking oil, while still using caution.

Allergies Making Sunburn Worse.

By Tia Cristy

Allergies Making Sunburn Worse.
TipsfromTia.com Man ready for fun at sunny tropical beach

Problem: I put on sunburn relief gel and it made my burn worse. My mom said I could be allergic to something in it.

Tip from Tia:

Absolutely! Anytime you put a chemical on your body and it starts to burn, sting or itch intensively, get it off right away. That is a sure sign your body doesn’t like it. Sometimes water doesn’t help in stopping the reaction, so have milk and vinegar close by, to neutralize it if necessary. And, be sure to try the milk first, if water makes it feel worse initially. Then, use the vinegar if the milk still hasn’t helped.

With sunburn relief gels, camphor could be the source of the allergy, but you may need to do a trial and error to find the exact source. Good news though, there are products out there without that in it, that work just as well.

I still stick with rubbing alcohol on sunburn. For bad burns, apply cornstarch once the alcohol dries, for burning relief. Take some over the counter pain relievers, if necessary. And, be sure to call your doctor immediately if you have and swelling, blisters or intense pain. Sun poisoning is a serious condition and can stop summer fun, to a screeching halt.

Removing hair dye stains from skin: controversial

By Tia Cristy

Quickies: Removing hair dye stains from skin: controversial.

This tip is controversial for some people. This is not to condone or disapprove smoking. This is a tip that I have tried and it worked. And, all I state is…tipsfromtia.com stop smoking

There is a benefit of knowing a smoker, ashes. If you don’t have accessibility to a full ash tray, you can try incense ashes. I would imagine they could work just as well.

Ashes can remove hair dye stains from your hairline. Add a little water to ashes to make a paste and rub it in a circular motion where your skin has been stained. Wash off and the dye stain will start to disappear on its own.

The base of you neck tends to carry a large amount of your daily stress. When these muscles get tight or knotted, it can cause major headaches and backaches.

If you’ve had a headache or a back pain that you just can shake, try applying a slight pressure between the base of the neck and shoulder. If you feel the shock run straight to your consistent pain, then that’s center of your discomfort.

Gradually massage and add ice for 20 minutes on 20 minutes off. The next day you can apply heat with same 20 minute rule. Apply a menthol gel if you need deep relief.

Stupid Tip of the Day:An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away.
TipsfromTia.com Apples

Apples are great for most, but what many people don’t know is, there is a group of people out there allergic to apples.

If your mouth itches after eating an apple there is a chance you could have a slight to full blown apple allergy.

Contact your doctor if you become itchy or swell. Hands and feet tend to itch first during an allergic reaction.

And remember if you have allergies, let your partner know so they can stay clear of the things that set your allergies off. And, know theirs as well.

Tips In Action: Look your Best on Photo Day

Tips In Action: Look your Best on Photo Day
tipsfromTia.com makeup tips

Photo Day at work or school can be a bit unnerving. From making sure your hair is perfect, your skin is clear and let alone the right color outfit; you just want to make sure all your best features are highlighted.

Eyes, cheeks or lips are easy to make outstanding in you picture. But if you need definition in certain areas don’t be afraid to grab your shadow brush and dark eyeshadow to define those tricky areas. For example, under the jawline is a great place to enhance for photos. You can also strengthen your cheeks under the apples or the definition of your nose.

You don’t have to be a professional to do this, but I do recommend practicing a few times before photo day so you see what complements you best. Take your own photo to make sure it works.

Add more shadow if needed or wipe away the heaviness. Once you’ve got the feel for it, you’re ready to say “cheese”. After the photo day shot, no need to wash your augmentation off, just blend in with a tissue or hand. Toning it down will give a natural everyday wear appearance.

What Does Craving Sweets Have To Do with your Health?

By Tia Cristy

 

What Does Craving Sweets Have To Do with your Health?

Delicious Chocolate Cake TipsfromTia.com

 

Problem:

I keep craving candy and other sweets! I just can’t help myself. During my workday, I hit the vending machine at least once a day, for a candy bar. At night, I want cookies! Why can’t I stop? It’s like I need to have it! Why?  Sam, 41

 

Tip From Tia:

Around this time of year till year’s end; sweets are going to be inevitable. As we finish the summer’s ice cream sunday’s and carnival treats, we roll on, where the cold weather will be coming in soon enough and upcoming holidays, will surround us with tasty treats. But that is no reason to splurge on the cane, sugar that is.

There are many reasons other than the time of year, you body wants the sweets. For example, after you eliminate the reason of boredom or just part of a scheduled routine, you must than appreciate, the human body is super smart and it will crave what it needs. We, ourselves are not as smart at understanding our bodies! Instead of us
eating spinach for calcium, we’ll grab the ice cream from the freezer.

Ask yourself; is it a certain kind of candy or sweet you’re craving?
Perhaps, if you keep craving peanut butter cups, it could be several
different things; your body may need protein, which the peanut butter would give you.

Chocolate itself has many benefits, for instance, it can soothe a person. A depressed individual will feel relief after ingesting chocolate. A woman eats chocolate close to her cycle because, it actually does elevate her symptoms. Chocolate also helps with digestion. Think if you need candy or desert after you’ve eaten a heavy meal.

If it’s just any sort of sugar rush, than, sugar could be what your body is craving. If that’s the case, more than likely you are not producing enough natural sugars because of your diet.

Or, a bad thing, could be you have yeast in your gut and it’s feasting off the sugar, which can cause cravings. That is not good, because once is feeds off large doses of sugar it allows bad yeast to multiply, quickly.

So you need to be proactive and rule out any stomach issues or other recent body complaints, if you can’t rule out feeling crappy, call your
doctor! It’s better to be safe than sorry. You may need a blood test to make sure your yeast (ask for this test specifically, routine blood tests don’t test for it) and sugar aren’t off balance.

Now, if you were able to rule out that you don’t have any issues,
except you want sweets, well then, ask yourself are you getting enough grains or fruits in your diet? Most dieters remove breads from their daily menu, but you need to be sure you are replacing those natural sugars with something else, like oatmeal or whole-meal breads.

Try using healthy foods to reduce that incorrigible sweet tooth. Substitute cupcakes with cornbread muffins. Carrot sticks are actually high in sugar so eating them can fulfill a sugar craving, but give you organic nutrition.

And if it’s a mind soother your body is trying to achieve, eating
better will be a positive start to a more positive attitude. Candy and deserts are a fine intake when taken in small doses. So use your judgement and be sure to always keep your doctor in the loop about any changes you make including diet.

Facial Hair Looks Patchy, Fill it in.

By Tia Cristy

Quickie: Facial Hair Looks Patchy, Fill it in.

tipsfromtia.com grouch

Facial hair looking patchy? You can’t cover it up without going unnoticed.

So, I recommend filling it in. Whether it’s female’s eyebrows or a man’s beard, sideburns or stache, facial hair can appear thin during certain times of the year due to shedding.

If facial hair has a spotty look, there’s a quick fix by using an eyebrow pencil. But, another way to fill in the spots, is using eyeshadow, which may be easier to match a hair color and can appear softer and more natural.

Either one you choose, be sure to wipe gently with a tissue to remove any excess and blend into the contours, in between hairs.
