Are You Hydrated?

Are You Hydrated?

It is important to stay hydrated during the hot months of summer. A good way to tell that you’re getting enough fluids is, first and for most, remembering the last time you urinated. If you’ve been out in the sun for hours and haven’t had to pee for quite some time, there’s a good chance you need water.

Another good tell on dehydration is, the pinch test. The pinch test is just what it sounds like. Pinch the skin of your forearm and let it go. The skin should bounce back to normal, without your eyes even noticing it going back to normal, but if it appears your skin slowly goes back into place, then you need hydration.

Water is a great source to hydrate, but if you’re deeply dehydrated, grab a sports drink with low sugar content, yet contains sodium. This will quench your body’s needs faster.

If you find your skin has a yellowish tint, contact your doctor immediately. Staying hydrated is important for both your inside and outside. A lack of fluids can cause chaos to the nervous system, mental status and all major organs, which includes the skin. So, be sure to consume plenty of water during the day.

Remember, consuming alcoholic beverages, especially in the sun; can help in causing dehydration. So, drink in moderation and be safe this summer.

Digestion Help by Chewing. Tips on Triggers:

By Tia Cristy

Tips on Triggers: Digestion Help by Chewing.

There are several tips that can help with digestion. One of those tips is chewing your way towards good digestion.

Eating slowly is the best way to digest properly, but not everyone or ever time allows that to happen.

So after you are done eating, pop in a piece of gum. Not only does it help with breath, it helps the stomach acids churn and digest the food consumed.

It’s Expensive to Get Great Hair. Stupid Tip of the Day:

It’s Expensive to Get Great Hair. Stupid Tip of the Day:

"Woman With Shiny Golden Hair" by stockimages FreeDigitalPhotos.net
“Woman With Shiny Golden Hair” by stockimages FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Most people think you have to spend a fortune to get great hair. It’s not the case. Some products that have a higher end price tag can give you great hair, and some at low cost can be damaging, but it also goes vice versa as well.

The fact is ingredients has a lot to do with how well your hair looks. The most important thing is what you’re putting in the inside has a bulk to do with how great your hair, skin and nails look. So, eating healthy goes a long way.

But, for being sure you put the right ingredients on your hair all depends on what you need and what you’re looking for.

To make hair thicker, add some Rosemary oil drops to your shampoo bottle.

To make hair stronger, try an egg mask for 30 minutes on your damp hair. Simply mix eggs and milk, and apply.

To get an overall balance of healthy hair, add a dash of cayenne pepper to a palm full of conditioner. Then, rinse thoroughly.

And, to get a gorgeous shine, rinse hair for at least 30 seconds in cold water after washing. This conditions the strands to a brilliant shine.

Hair products don’t have to cost a ton, just be sure to switch out products after time, because hair tends to get a build up.

Keep Ants Off the Picnic Table. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Keep Ants Off the Picnic Table.

 

Having a party or barbeque outside during the summer season is a joy, but dealing with the pests, can put a serious irk in your party. Especially, the ants that come marching around your food table.

If you’re on a patio, here’s a tip to remember, to keep the little buggers away. Ant’s can not cross chalk lines. So take a piece of chalk, and put a circle around each leg of the table. Ants won’t be able to climb the legs of the table, to get to the food. Don’t forget to circle around the umbrella base if the table has one.

If your table is in the grass, putting a couple sheets of paper, like newspaper sections under each leg, will allow you to circle the paper. A few sheets is needed, since the grass can make the paper damp, and in that case, the chalk won’t stick as thick.

Chairs and other objects can be use as a bypass ramp for ants, so watch if something is leaning against the table.

Another great thing to circle is the cooler, if you have juices, sodas or any sweet treat.

Just Stick with the Cocktail.

By Tia Cristy

 

Just Stick with the Cocktail.

 

Problem: Hey Tia! I was planning a “romantic” trip to the beach, but a friend told me not to do it. She said getting sand in places can cause problems. Do you have a tip to prevent that?

TipsfromTia.com, tips from Tia, sexual health tips

Tip from Tia: Hi, thanks for the question and for reading! Yes, your friend is absolutely correct. Getting sand in certain areas can wreak havoc on your balance for a long time causing reoccurring infections. When it comes to sex, you must always take responsibility, and way the heat of the moment, to the consequences.

This irritation can happen just from laying out. But, engaging in certain activities, can push sand into areas. And, if you’ve ever been in the sand, you already know, it gets everywhere.

Prevention is to keep parts covered. But…

If you get off balance from sand and sea, correcting from the inside out is the best way to go. Be sure to drink plenty of water, stay away from things with high sugar content and add in a pro-biotic.

Take a clove oil bath, 6-10 drops of oil in a bath is good. (IMPORTANT: Clove is powerful and can burn if use on it’s own. Be sure to always mix clove oil with water or another carrier oil like olive oil) Soak for at least 10 minutes to try and re-balance your chemistry. Clove is anti-bacterial,  antimicrobial and anti-fungal. Take a soak everyday, for several days to see full results. Do not use if you are allergic to cloves or if you find you become irritated by using the clove oil.

Contact your doctor immediately for further help, if symptoms don’t clear up or you are having serious issues.

The beach may sound romantic, but I would stick to the cocktail on the beach if it’s permitted, and go get your romance (“romance” isn’t usually permitted on the beach) elsewhere; a place with less chance to off balance your body. But, it’s just my opinion.

Hair Turned Green from Swimming.

By Tia Cristy

Hair Turned Green from Swimming.

 


Problem:
My hair turned greenish from the swimming pool, I thought that was just a myth. How do I fix it? K.

Tip from Tia:
It is not a myth, sorry to say. It is a chemical reaction from the chlorine in the pool, with the process of recently colored or lightened hair.

The quickest, safest way to remove the green tint is with ketchup. The red will neutralize the green hue. Tomato juice can work too, but the ketchup is thicker and will stay in the hair for a period of time.

Cover all your hair with ketchup and let it set for 30-45 minutes. Wash out with shampoo and condition. Let hair dry, and if there is still a green tint, repeat process.

I usually recommend waiting a couple hours in between treatments, because washing your hair and blow drying too frequent, can be damaging on the strands.

Only Use This Kind of Oatmeal for Sunburn. Stupid Tip of the Day:

Only Use This Kind of Oatmeal for Sunburn. Stupid Tip of the Day:

"Beach Trainers" by Simon Howden FreeDigitalPhotos.net
“Beach Trainers” by Simon Howden FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Okay, so maybe ground, steel-cut, organic oatmeal’s are more effective on sunburn, but all you have is instant. Will it work to relieve sunburn pain?

The answer is yes, it can. I recommend mixing it with rubbing alcohol, to make a paste. Apply the paste on the areas needing treatment. IMPORTANT: Discard any unused portion immediately. (it is not for ingesting)
Leave paste on area for 10 minutes. Then, rinse off with luke-warm water. This should really help in pulling out the fire of sunburn.

Can’t Get Tree Sap Off Windshield, Try This. Tips in Action:

Can’t Get Tree Sap Off Windshield, Try This. Tips in Action:

"Outdoor Blue Car Wash With Yellow Sponge" by samuiblue FreeDigitalPhotos.net
“Outdoor Blue Car Wash With Yellow Sponge” by samuiblue FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Sap is falling from the trees and landing on your car. This sticky mess, is quite a challenge to get off the car and your windows. Sap can even cause a blind spot or just be down right irritating when driving. You’ve used window cleaner, only to leave behind a streaking stickiness. It’s aggravating, right?

Here’s a simple tip to remove that grime. Get brake fluid. Apply some brake fluid to a clean cloth and dab on to each sapped area. Let it set for a few seconds and then rub out the sap. It will break down the sticky.

Wash windows as usual, to remove the brake fluid. Repeat process as necessary.
