The Power of Beauty

Have you ever wondered why women are so concerned about how they
look? Why they aim to look like the beautiful women they see on
the television and in magazines? That’s because beauty is power!

Even way back into ancient times women were concerned about
their looks. Think of Cleopatra or Nefertiti who were beautiful
women of their times.

The cosmetic industy is well aware of this and that women will
go to great lengths to look beautiful. That’s why the cosmetic
industry is a multi billion dollar industry.

When you think of beauty you think of what you see on the
outside. But beauty is more than skin deep. And beauty is truly
in the eye of the beholder! What one may find beautiful another
may not. Even though there is no such thing as a definition for
universal beauty all women know how to use their beauty to their
advantage.

Men fall for this manipulation constantly. In fact they seldom
know they’ve been snared into the web with a woman’s beauty. Of
course the know when exterior beauty is mesmerizing them but
it’s the internal beauty that they have not idea is working.
That pouty mouth, those sparkling eyes, that gentle laugh. The
power play of the boardroom and the bedroom share many
similarities.

It’s a proven fact men are unable to release themselves from the
beauty of women. A quick look, a wink, a big inviting smile, a
relaxed posture are all indications that a man has succumbed to
beauty. Studies have shown even the smartest men go stupid when
entranced by the beauty of a woman.

Remember Sophia Loren, Jane Collins, or Jaqueline Bisset. Think
about Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Madona, Marilyn Monroe.
There beauty had an instant effect on the male population. Not
only their exterior beauty but the deeper inner beauty of
confidence and mystique that surrounded them.

Herbal Medicines for Everyone

It is very common these days to find medicines labeled as natural or herbal medicines. In a medical store one can easily find millions of dietary supplements and medicines for various diseases. The history of medicinal plants goes back more than 5000 years ago. The use of these plants as medicines can be studied in the ancient texts of Chinese and Egyptian papyrus. Additionally, Ayurveda and traditional Chinese Herbal medicine text have explained the systematic use of these medicines.

The scientists found that people in various parts of the world use similar plants for same purposes. And, in the 19th century, with advent of chemical analysis, scientists performed the extraction of active ingredients of the plant. They modified the extractions with some other chemicals to give the improved results. In later history, the chemists also began to make their own modifications and herbal medicines; which tended the shift of herbal medicines towards the pharmaceuticals only.

It has been studied by the World Health Organization that 80% of the people rely on herbal medicines in the primary aspects of better health. The increasing dissatisfaction from the prescribed allopathic medicines, observing their side-effects on the body and high cost have made them to turn to natural ways to treat the disease. In this regard, herbal medicines have come as the best alternative to the people. The Chinese herbal medicines are considered to be the best treatment option in the science of herbal plants. In the late twenty century people have realized the benefits of natural products; therefore, the utilization of these medicines has increased significantly. But there is a specific way to use them. In many herbs used in herbal alternative medicines, the active ingredient is not known which actually affects the body.

Raw food recipe. In this episode of Jenna’s Healthy Kitchen, Jenna’s guest chef Evona Poplawski demonstrates how to prepare a marinated kale cole slaw recipe that is delicious and very nutritious.

Celebrity Beauty Tips – Hairstyles and Beauty Tips of the Stars

Celebrities enjoy huge fan following especially when it comes to beauty and style matters. Being a style-icon a celebrity is imitated by his admirers once he builds an image. A celebrity beauty tip, whether it be about skin care, acne prevention, hair styling, reducing body weight or any other issue related to improving looks has always been cherished by the admirers. Adjudged from this angle, the best celebrity beauty tip of the present age seems to be being ones own self.

Inspired by the doctrine that beauty comes in all sizes, shapes and colors and is more about self-expression than mere imitation of someone else’s style, modern fans go for personal styling. A few generations back an individual would be content with just getting an Elvis Presley hair cut or a Marilyn Monroe makeup even if that gave a more or less dumb look. A present generation Tom Cruise admirer instead customizes the star’s hairstyle to best suit his personality. Similarly, a woman obsessed with Julia Roberts may not opt for a curly crop, but rather sport her hair straight, a la Brooke Shield’s style.

The same celebrity beauty tip holds for make up and attires. Considering the camera glares and flashes they are exposed to, it is very fitting that a beauty pageant winner or a celebrity will settle on heavy makeup and some out of the ordinary clothing. However, when adopted in everyday lives, the too gorgeous, overtly glamorous looks will best be termed ‘blunders’ on the fashion-front. No wonder that young women go for a lot of scaling down and opt for the ‘girl next door’ look rather than the ‘Diva’ look.
