Outward beauty !

I was wearing my dental clips yesterday night and since they have wires protruding out a bit,I tend to get a pout.It then got me thinking about this topic today.

From where did this fashion of pouty lips begin? Babies breastfeeding or bottle feeding usually have a pouty mouth because of the suckling fashion,how can it be a fashion statement ! I see women filling their lips with fat,some go too far ahead and literally have their upper lip sticking out.This woman who gave birth to octopulets in the US,don't remember her name,she has the strangest mouth ever.It seems very clear that she had that flapper altered by surgery.The cosmetic surgeons always tell on shows,that they have patients coming into the clinics and asking for a Lopez Ass,Angelina mouth,breast augmentations and enlargements,liposuction,lifts of all kinds for all body parts,toe shortenings,ear pinning,you can even have permanent makeup done on your face,namely tattooed eyebrows or lip color or eye liners,etc.

On one hand we talk about remaining true to our body and spirit and on the other almost 60% of the total population has something enhanced or changed purely in the name of beauty.Are people so insecure now or has the concept of beauty become so hardcore,that anything not stipulated in its list,is ugly !

I don't condemn anything,everyone has a right to their own fashion statements but beyond a point it looks plain stupid.You can spot their esteem hanging on by a thread and some of them grows egos as big as supernovas.I guess when you develop self confidence after a long time,you find it difficult to shake it off even when its all over somebodys face.

Not wanting to sound like a hypocrite,I do wear dental clips to keep my teeth aligned otherwise in time they look like buck teeth.I wear contact lens because every now and then ,I like to see my face in the mirror without the glasses.I color my hair every now and then coz I have had white strands since I was 8 yrs old.I pluck my eye brows  and upper lip.This too, I guess, counts for something.Or is there a difference between enhancing and changing dramatically by going under the knife.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

One of the many things that grow inside a uterus and cause problems for some while others barely know about it in their life are FIBROIDS.I was recently diagnosed with multiple fibroids and cysts when my usual monthly periods became a little too unbearable.We got an ultrasound done which led to many other gynecologists doing the same thing for confirmation.

My fibroids are small but I have been told that my periods will be stopped for a couple of months and regular ultrasounds will be done to ensure that no fibroids are growing out of proportions or are getting benign or malignant,which again is done through a biopsy.I just thought I will write about a  bit of my journey as I spend this time scared.

I told a couple of my friends and they all had scary stories to tell about how some relative didn't take care of themselves and were finally diagnosed with cancer at a later stage and died from it.I had my share of panic attack yesterday night and after a proper informative chat with my …
