Choosing The Right Sunscreen

It is too early for a summer, but this post should be a heads up for many who enjoy the outdoors (and even indoors) during summer! So before summer starts, you will be ready facing the sun with the right protection.

The golden rule is; - always use a sunscreen of SPF15 every day (even if you're spending your time indoors) and don't forget to apply spots such as your ears, neck and lips. When it's time to hit the beach or the pool, follow the following tips

Choose sunscreens that are higher in number which means stronger protection. SPF 80 for example can stay strong all day without re applying compared to SPF 15 that needs to be re applied every 2-3 hours for a solid coverage. Don't waste your time using SPF lower than 15 because they don't actually block 100% of the sun's rays.

Choose products that can protect both against UVA and UVB rays. Ultraviolet A (UVA) causes premature wrinkles and spots, while Ultraviolet B (UVB) can burn the skin.

For daily background protection use a combination of daily moisturizer and sunscreen, but choose a full-fledged sunblock for days spent in the sun. It's because combo products are not high-potency sunscreens because they're diluted by the make up and lotion.

Don't buy separate sunscreens for the face and body. Almost all products on the market are oil-free and non-irritating, so they are safe for delicate parts of the body too.

Take note that sunscreen is not enough always. Add extra protection if you will be under the sun all day by wearing a wide-brim hat to protect the tops of your ears, the back of your neck, and other tricky spots.

Is It a Nasty Cold Or The Flu?

You cough, you sneeze, and yes, you're sick...but with what? Did you know that the common cold and influenza share a host of similar symptoms?
One important thing to have a knowledge of when you feel the symptoms is to be able to tell the symptoms you are having from that of an H1N1-like virus or just the sniffles.

While a common cold can make you feel awful for a few days, the flu can be more serious and potentiall life threatening. So, the best thing to do when you start feeling sick is to rest, drink lots of fluids, take OTC fever reducers like Tylenol, and suck sore-throat lozenges to numb the pain.

The common cold usually lasts up to 3 days, but if they don't, you've likely hit with the flu. So, be sure to see your doctor ASAP for further treatment and diagnosis and medications.

Common cold symptoms:
stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, cough, headache

Flu symptoms:
stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, cough, headache, fever, extreme fatigue, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

Home Insurance That Protect Your Assets

Nowadays, home insurance is one important aspect of needs for homeowners, not only in UK but all around the world.

But how many of these insurance companies can really offer coverages that are worthy enough for your money? Many insurance companies seem to be unfair at times because the money you invest on them would end up useless when the time comes that you are suppose to need them but you can't get them back because your home isn't covered! This is usually but one of the many experiences of US homeowners!
As a homeowner living in the US, insurance companies have mostly limited coverages for home insurances and it would only be limited to nature related disasters that damage home structures.

One of the best thing they have is that you get good options which ones should you include. Car, travel, life, event, wedding, pet, and your home.
UK residents should start choosing their home insurance coverages because it is a lifetime security that can give you a peace of mind not only for you but for your loved ones.
Why not get your instant quote online today to make sure you get the right insurance coverage that fits your needs?

Security Products For The Crowd

One way of avoiding or at least minimizing accidents out from the crowd is having a good crowd control security products in your area. In choosing one, you need to ensure what type of these security products fit on your area to be protected.

Some examples would be the stanchions. There are various types that you can choose from based on their purposes. One common type is a stanchion made with a retractable belt and is mostly found in banks, theaters, etc...
Other type is the velvet rope designed for convention industries, but is also popularly seen in many busy places indoors like hotels, and other busy places most likely indoors.

For a tougher security, the security barricades are ideal for handling bigger crowds especially outdoors. There are also a lot of choices to choose from according to purpose and as to where you would want it to be used.
So, you might as well check on the products themselves to see which ones are the best for your business.

Unique Personalized Gifts For Men

It would be good to start the New Year right by sending unique gift ideas for a man cave. Whether you want to give gifts to your husband, boyfriend, father, brothers or any male friends, I bet they would appreciate them.

Sporty things and other stuff are highly recommended, depending on what are their favorites. Go start the year of the water dragon and get your man his favorite personalized man cave gifts! ;)

Getting Stronger Daily

On top of every women's list is to live healthy. So, make every move count both in and out of the gym.

So, next time you hit a work out, head out for a brisk walk because a physical activity helps fight fatigue and burnout, as well as improves mental focus and clarity.

A fitness can also give beauty boost. When your body sweat, your body releases toxins that make skinn look dull. Regular exercise also improves circulation, giving skin a radiant glow.

Exercise makes the body produces endorphins, a natural chemical that increases feelings of happiness. Best of all, once you feel toned and fit, you will gain confidence to face your life's challenges head on.

Gaming Accessories

I am actually thinking of buying Wii games. I find it helpful these days because it would make me and my husband exercise more by just having an entertainment once in a while at home where we can play, and exercise at the same time :). We really need to shed those pounds, lol! It would then be much more convenient to buy game accessories online, and I don't need to go out and drive around looking for one on the stores.

Myths About Things That Causes Cancer

1. That deodorant/antiperspirant can be cancerous! Based on a 2002 epidemiologic study, they found no link between breast cancer risk and deodorant and antiperspirant use.

2. Using underwire bras. This is another oft-reported myth. According to a certain belief, the wire compresses the lymphatic system which causes "toxins" to accumulate that lead to cancer. But medical experts say that no clothing can increase your cancer risk.

3. Caffeine. Although it can make some breasts become more lumpy, many studies have shown that there's no connection between caffeine consumption and cancer.

4. Yearly mammogram. The American Cancer Society says that the amount of radiation you receive from a mammogram is extremely small.

5. Having big breasts. Anyone with breasts, big or small is at risk of developing cancer! But if your breasts are dense - and they can be dense at any size, you may want to talk to your doctor about additional screening methods aside from mammograms. About 35% of breast cancer goes undetected by mammography, and is often a problem for those with dense breasts.

6.Breast implants. Studies show that there's no connection between surgical enhancements and cancer risks but take note that implants can make it more difficult for a radiologist to read mammograms.

The Broken Marriage Bed

Don't let your need for quality sleep tear you and your mate apart.
One in 4 couples nod off in different bedrooms because of sheet-sharing pitfalls. Avoid ending up in a relationship disaster by following proper sleep hygiene by trying the following strategies below:

According to Dr. J. Maas, a Ph.D, an average person moves 65 times a night on bed. So be sure to have a mattress big enough to keep you from feeling each other flail around. Try using separate blankets or comforters to avoid tug-of-war.

If snoring is one problem, the snorer should try nasal strips, or any sleep remedy OTC's and if it doesn't work, get a silicone earplug that can cancel at least 50% of noise. You should be sleeping better ;).
Heavy snoring should as well be checked out by a doctor who can prescribe treatments.

Lesser Sleep, More Weight!

One thing you might not know why you can't seem to lose weight may be lying between your sheets!
Did you know that the less you sleep, the more the chemical called "ghrelin" is being produced by your body? This is an appetite-revving chemical produced by our body, and the more we have this chemical, the lower is our body output with "leptin", a hormone that signals you're full.

Many women seem to be getting up before dawn like for instance going for a workout. But if they are not going to bed early enough, their weight loss efforts can be useless. According to a certain study, it found out that people that are deprived of sleep with low-cal diets lost 55% less body fat than those who are well rested. What they did shed actually was lean muscle mass.

There are also preliminary studies saying that exposure to light from your computer, TV, cellphones may lead to obesity. Melatonin, our body's sleep-inducing hormone is said to be extra sensitive to any kind of glow. Even barely, their lights can disrupt melatonin production, leaving you wide awake and more likely to raid your fridge for food!

Apple Store Coupons & Promo Codes

Hey Apple fans and Apple users! Here is one site worth recommending if you want some coupons for your gadget use and accessories.
I am an Apple user myself, from my ipod to Ipad2! ;)

Let's face it, no matter how tough the competition is, when it comes to gadget technology inventions, Apple had made a long way, and to me Apple will still continue to be no. 1 because of the unbeatable features that benefit me from my work.
Let's face it, there are a lot of Apple store nationwide, but it is rare that they give discounts. Unless they are giving give aways, that is, but your chance is always very little. And to think that the prices are a bit "tough" for the pockets, we would always wish where can we find good deals of discounts and promos, right?

So, if you are planning to get any Apple products, this is your chance to avail of Apple coupons 2012. So, go ahead and make a big start for 2012! And who doesn't like coupons and discounts, especially from Apple?

Actos Lawsuits

Those patients who are diabetic and are using the drug Actos (Piogliatazone) may (or may not for others) suffer from possible dangerous side effects such as heart attack, bladder cancer and even death.

Although it seems some claim that they haven't had any problems with Actos and had been using the drug for many years, Watts Guerra Craft LLP have filed lawsuits against the drug because of many patients claiming they were diagnosed with bladder cancer from Actos use.

The fact can't be denied when it comes from the medical experts themselves. It would be a sad fate for many more patients who will still buy and take the drug without being warned!

But if you think you are one of those who have taken Actos, and you experience any side effects and consult your doctor right away. Furthermore, you may be entitled for a compensation if your lawyer thinks you have a case as such.
Don't hesitate to seek help from them because you have the right for any injuries and damage you got from Actos.

Mom and Me

Guest written by our friend Mason Abbott

My mom is always in my business and she just doesn’t trust me to make my own decisions. I love her to death but she’s always nagging me about looking into reliant vs TXU and painting the front steps and not calling her after 11 pm. I don’t know why in the world she feels like as a 30 year old woman I’m not capable of handling myself but I think it has something to do with the fact that I live a little closer than I would like to to my family. When I went away to college I gained all this freedom that I relished but being back home in Texas has put me a bit closer to them than I’d like. I wish we could all spend time together without getting into fights but I just feel like my mom and sometimes even the rest of my family don’t treat me like the adult I am. There’s nothing I can’t handle on my own without their overbearing guidance!

Sleep Styles That Say About You

Do you sleep in a prone position? (lying nearly facedown)... it says you're likely to be a perfectionist who is compulsive, persistent and goal oriented. This is according to a sleep expert psychiatrist in New York City. The qualities maybe good for your career but not with your body. It is because sleeping in this position can twist your neck into an awkward position, can put excess pressure on your spine and it is more difficulty to inhale. Avoid waking up all achy by gently nudging yourself into a fetal sleeping position by lying on your side with one pillow between your knees and another behind your back.

Lying on your back can mean an adventurous, confident and receptive personality. It also keeps pressure off your jaw which is crucial for people with painful temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. But watch out for this position if you are a snorer. It may trigger undue stress on your airway.
For noisy breathers, buy a full-body pillow that will keep you on your side.

Sleeping on your side reflects the personality to be compromising and appeasing. Those who sleep in full fetal position (with their knees almost hugged to their chest) are introspective and intense.
Healthwise, sleeping on your side curtails snoring, and resting on your left side keeps your stomach active and eases hurtburn says a journal of Clinical Gastroenterology.
