Streak-Free Shine, How You Ask?

Do you hate when you clean the windows, car windshield or mirrors and step back to admire, and see streaks running across. Yes, it’s not so nice.

A quick and easy way to get a streak-free shine, is to wipe the cleaner off with newspaper instead of a rag or paper towel.

The ink and the paper, have something to do with leaving a crystal shine with no streaks left behind.

You Don’t Have to Clean Your Makeup. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: You Don’t Have to Clean Your Makeup.

What a strange concept for some. But, actually yes, you should clean your makeup. Make up has a shelf life once you start using it. So, to make that shelf life a little longer, you can clean your makeup after using it so bacterias don’t grow as fast or plentiful.

For example, after using your lipstick or liners, take a tissue and wipe the the top. If it’s been awhile since you used a liner or lipstick, wipe with tissue before using.

Use a tissue to wipe compact powders, blushes or eyeshadow; I recommend doing that over the sink or trash can, because it does loosen the top coat of the pressed powder.

For extra cleaning, splash tissue with peroxide, just to make it damp, then, lightly wipe your cosmetics, the peroxide will kill a portion of any yucky things that started to grow, but dissipate quickly, to leave the product un-harmful to you.

When Everything is Against You. Tips in Action:

Tips in Action: When Everything is Against You.

I saw Keith Urban in concert the other night and I must say, it was a great show. Keith Urban has had an impressive career, with an upbeat, outstanding outlook on life, while appearing to be very grounded. So I was wondering, what kind of tips he lives by.

“Everybody’s on their own path and everybody has to come to their own
realization of what they want their life to be, and nobody can do it for
you and nobody can tell you how you should live and you just have to
make those decisions for yourself.” he said during an interview.

I thought, that is a great tip that people should realize, your life is up to you.

And, so I will add to that tip, when everything seems like its against you in life, that is the time you need to reflect and see if it is really, everything against you, or are you really going against everything. Meaning that, if people that love and care about you, are saying your on the wrong path or handling something wrong or say you have a bad attitude; you need to look at yourself, and see if you’re on the right path for you or ask yourself are they right about you going down a wrong path.

The first step to personal change is, acknowledging what you need or what to change.

Remember, when things are right for you, not everyone has to agree with your decisions but, happiness and support usually surrounds you, when you are doing good things.

Tips on Triggers: It’s a Good Day.

One amazing trigger to have a good day, is to declare it. Sounds too easy, right? Fact is, it’s part of self-fulfilling prophecy.

Every day when you awake in the morning, and you make your first trip to the bathroom, look in the mirror and say, “It’s a good day!” It may not work the first couple days, but it will soon take root. Positive reinforcement, will change your outlook. It has been found that people who declare a good day, will in fact, start having good days, within a months time.

And, those who continue the declaration as a daily regimen, see positive changes all around them from a happier family life, to stronger financial securities, overcoming health issues and even work related promotions. It most cases, people say that the people around them are more positive too. So, just like misery loves company; it’s good to know, Joy and happiness, is contagious too!

So, trigger a happy life starting with, it’s a good day!

Make a Face, It will Stay That Way. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Make a Face, It will Stay That Way.

When you were little, someone may have told you don’t make a funny face, it will stay that way! Yes and no, Making a funny face can hurt you in the long run. For instance, if you practice frowning often, the corners of your mouth may droop, in the years to come. But, as I mentioned the other day, facial yoga, is the art of making funny faces and reaping the benefits of it.

Sticking out your tongue and stretching out your jaw and holding it for
30 seconds and repeating 3 times, can tighten up your jaw line and neck.

Be a Fishy Face. Make you fish lips and puff out your cheeks instead of sucking in, tap on each cheek 30 times. Next, take those fish lips and look up, stretching your neck as tall as you can, and blow kisses to the sky. Do ten kisses, relax and repeat 3 times.

Get mad? No prevent it. Take those two fingers and place them in between the eyebrows at the top of the nose. Push your eyebrows apart with your fingers, while trying to push them together with your facial muscles. Hold position for 30 seconds. Relax, then, repeat 3 times.

These small yoga routines, can prevent wrinkles and help existing wrinkles. After your facial work out close your eyes and relax your face for 1 minute at least. This will help the muscles remember and gain strength to do what they’re not supposed to do do anymore.

Over Salt, Take it Out. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Over Salt, Take it Out. Tips in Action:

It does happen, sometimes there are many cooks in a kitchen and each one takes the opportunity to salt the water or the soup. And, wow that can ruin a dish quickly! So if you don’t want to eat something that tasted like it was prepared in the ocean and you don’t want to throw it out, wash a raw potato and cut it in half. Put it in the water or soup and let it sit for several minutes. It will absorb a lot of that excess salt, so you don’t have too. Remove the potato, and prepare as usual.

If you noticed it after you cooked noodles and strained the boiling water out already, run noodles under water. Then, put noodles back in pan and add warm water with the potato. It will still help absorb the salt.

To Botox or Not.

By Tia Cristy

To Botox or Not.

Problem: Hi Tia, love your stuff! I wanted to ask, since you talk about natural remedies, but what do you think about botox for skin care?

Tip fromTia:

Cosmetic procedures, which I think do have positive
effects on certain individuals, benefits skin that has lost elasticity,
hydration and reduced collagen, which are all factors that are harder to maintain
naturally, when it comes with maturing. Also, botox is great for those
that have sun damage in lines of facial expression, to allow that
surface to heal flat, not within a crevice.

I think the earlier you start your skin care treatments, the longer lasting results are, to keep good skin.
But, I don’t think that means run out and get major cosmetic treatments, first. There are great ways to keep your skin youthful, yes, naturally.

And for those teenagers, already thinking about getting botox, you should know that your skin still
has a bunch of natural elements, where powerful chemicals could be completely unnecessary right now. Prevention is a major factor with other, simpler regimens.

But, if you are just starting to see signs of aging, you can prevent or slow down the process with good diet; fish, veggies and nuts, limit sun exposure with sun block and SPF, vitamins and herbals, drink plenty of water and try the newest trend, facial yoga. Which that will help the face muscles build strength and elasticity.

After trying all that, if you are still unhappy or the process of aging is further along then you’d like, then, make an appointment with a well respected doctor and you can discuss your options. Remember botox lasts for several months in the system, and there are other brands out there than Botox that do the same thing yet, have different ingredients. One product is made with yeast while the other, is made with lactose and cow protein. If you have reoccurring fungal infections talk to you doctor, and they may suggest staying away from the yeast based one. The point I’m trying to make is, do your research, before you act.

Clean the Microwave. Tips in Action:

By Tia Cristy

Tips in Action: Clean the Microwave.

So it’s happen to the best of us, you put something in the microwave and it explodes. Whether the case is you don’t clean it up right away or it’s been happening repeatedly and now all that gunk is cemented to the inside of the microwave, it’s alright. There is a quick fix to getting that caked on food off the microwave without using chemicals.

Get a microwave safe bowl, fill it with water and place it in the microwave uncovered. Allow the water to boil for about 3 minutes on high.

Once the timer ends let it set for about 1 minute before opening the door. The steam will saturate the grime and all you need to do is wipe out with a paper towel or sponge, hardly using any elbow grease.

Remember, the bowl of water will be extremely hot, use caution when handling.
