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.

How to make your house appear cleaner than it is. Tips in Action:

How to make your house appear cleaner than it is. Tips in Action:

TipsfromTia.com Lemons in White Bowl

Tis’ the season for unexpected guest, and not that we mind unannounced visits; not everyone has time to keep the house sparkling 24/7. Here’s a tip that will help your house appear cleaner than it really is.

Our senses work amazing together and they can also fool other senses at the same time. This is a fact, that’s why you’ve heard the saying “believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see”.

Keep an already, sliced lemon wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator or lemon juice on hand this season. Lemons are the scent of clean to most people.

When a guest arrives put a lemon slice down the garbage disposal and let run for a few seconds. That will send a burst of lemon scent throughout the kitchen. Squirt some lemon juice in the bathroom sink to freshen the water closet and if you need some extra kick from the lemon, put the rhines in a cup of hot water and walk the steam around the house.

The power of lemons will make your guest senses think you just cleaned.

Hair Looks Thin, but is time to maintain color.

Hair Looks Thin, but is Time to Maintain Color.

Baby's Ear TipsfromTia.com

Problem:
My hair is really thinning, and of course I’m freaked out, but it’s time to bleach it and I just don’t want to do anything to it, in fear of losing more hair. I want to know is there anything I can do? K, 28

Tips from Tia: Baby thin hair is only temporary for babies, and adults don’t look as cute with it, it’s just a fact. So first, do you know the reason your hair is thinning? Is it the change of season? Have you’ve been sick, are you sick, been on medicine or had a bad dye job previously?

There are many reasons you could be losing hair. Sometimes yeast could be blocking your follicles, which you would need a anti-fungal regimen for your scalp. A scalp problem could cause thinning. A vitamin deficiency could cause hair loss as well. If any of these things are going on, it maybe time to ask your doctor to check it out.

Now, you need to brighten up your color, whatever color it may be. You said bleach, so if you want to be blonde, say “no” to the bleach for now. Get the blondest light permanent you can find, the more nourishing probably the better. If you are trying to achieve the highlight effect, I recommend a cream color, which will allow you to foil it in as you would a bleach. You can do this foil effect with any color. Multi-tone hair colors are better for looking fuller, than having one solid color.

Color will plump the hair, instead of deplete it like a bleach will. So stay away from products that strip the hair (bleaches, relaxers, straighteners and perms), until you have rebuilt strength to your hair. You may want to add a protein enriched shampoo and conditioner to help strengthen the hair. And remember, before you dry your hair, let it air dry to a damp wet, and apply a thermal protector to your strands before applying the heat from the dryer. This will help protect the weak strands from breakage.

And, when in doubt, leave it to a professional. It’s better to pay a colorist, then pay for a mishap.

Stupid Tip Of The Day; Plucking Your Eyebrows Without a Plan

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day; What Not To Do

Plucking your own eyebrows with out a plan.
Beautiful Eyes

 

Meaning: If you pluck, you better know where your natural arch is.

Knowing where to let your eye brow start and where it should end is key. The only thing more awkward then the uni-brow, is the brows that are too far apart.

Use a line to start, put your finger flat against the side of your nose to the brow. That is the starting area.

Now put your finger at the corner of your eye and go diagonal towards the top of your ear. That’s the finish line.

Always pluck the under side of the brow, not the top.

If it’s your first time plucking (even if you’ve waxed before) pluck a little at a time. Biggest mistake even a seasoned plucker can do, is over pluck.
