How to Relieve a Headache: Tips on Triggers

By Tia Cristy

Tips on Triggers: Can’t shake that headache?

One trigger everyone can use at one point in time, is knowing how relieve a headache fairly quick. The best spot to tackle that headache, is a the point in between your thumb and “pointer” finger. It’s that pudgy part of the web, when you stretch the finger and thumb to make the famous “L” shape.

Press down with your opposite hand’s finger (under hand) and thumb (on top of hand). Apply a deep pressure and hold for several seconds and release. Magically the pain in your head should start to release as well. If pain continues, try trigger point again or switch hands and repeat process.

If you have a trigger point you want to share, email me or comment.

Protection is Protection. Stupid Tip of the Day. (MA)

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Protection is Protection.

Yeah, I don’t think so.

When it comes to that magic moment you don’t want anything to ruin the momentum, but in fact you must remember to think first and act second. It can be a scary world out there if you are not in a committed relationship and don’t protect yourself.

Studies are always coming up with new numbers, but it can be safe to say 1 out of 3 over the age of 14 has the potential of having an STD. So to put it bluntly, wrap it up. If you are responsible enough to have sex, you are responsible to be in charge of protecting yourself. Sex responsibility is not sexist.

Birth control does only that, protects you against giving birth, and is not 100% effective. Condoms are the way to protect yourself from pregnancy and STD’s, but as you also know, they too are not 100% effective. It may sound cliche’ but, abstinence is the only full proof way to keep clear of both, pregnancy and STD’s.

Using a plastic bag or wrap, is not the same thing as a condom, no matter what your friends may tell you. Plastic wrap only protects your food from freezer burn. (not 100% effective) No matter how much the urge has taken over, take the time to get the proper protection, because protection is not always protection.

Tips In Action: Unable to Wash your Hair Today.

When your hair looks greasy, but you have no time to wash it. Easy and quick tip. Grab the cornstarch! Cornstarch will absorb the grease out of your hair and leave it looking clean and ready.

First pour some into your hand, rub hands together and shake off excess. Then stroke through your hair starting from scalp up the shaft. Repeat until the white of the powder is unnoticeable.  The final look should be soft and natural. Your hair should feel clean and ready to style. (SIDE NOTE: Cornstarch should not block pores, but if method is used repeatedly without washing hair in between, it can eventually dry the scalp)

It’s Cloudy, You Don’t Need Sunblock. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: It’s Cloudy, You Don’t Need Sunblock.

One of the biggest mistakes people make with skin care is not using sun protection on hazy days. Even if the sun isn’t shining, be sure to put on an SPF with UVA.

Those sun rays are still beaming through the clouds and have the potential to give a deep burn, without noticing until it’s too late.

One of the worst burns I ever got was on the beach on a cloudy, cold day. So, be careful and wear your SPF. If you’re on a beach or an open area, wearing a hat to help keep those rays at bay, can help. And, wearing sunglasses in the haze, can protect your eyes from those dangers, as well.

De-Foam Your Brew.

De-Foam Your Brew.

Okay so normally I would answer a question today, but I was at a block party the other day and someone next to me asked his friend,”How do you get rid of the head, from the beer, dude?”

Amazing that they were standing next to me, because I was able to quickly reply a great tip.

So, if you pour a beer into a glass or cup and, the head foams up to give you a beer stache. (kegs can produce a lot of foam) Take your finger, rub it on the side of your nose and dip that finger into the beer and stir. The foam will start to disappear.

Even the slightest oils from your skin, break it down, so no more foam to inhale before taking your first sip.

Blow Dry Hair Faster. Quickie:

By Tia Cristy

Quickie: Blow Dry Hair Faster.

You know when you’re in a hurry, it seems like it takes 10 times longer to dry your hair. A quick tip that actually does work, even though it may sound strange is, let your hair air dry.

For only about 5 minutes, let the air pull the moisture out, while running your fingers through it every so often. This can reduce the dry time significantly.

So take that time to put on your make-up or make that cup of coffee. Then return to your hair drying routine.
