Here are some of our top blog posts in the EmpowHER community this week.
From the blog: “The face is one part of the body that receives massive attention. This is especially so in people who are beauty conscious. The face to them is their image. Think about the numerous products specially made to enhance how the face looks? Mascara, toner, makeup, eye pencil, lip stick, lip gloss, lip plumpers. Feel free to stop me when you get the point.
The point you were supposed to get from all that banter is that the face is really important to all of us. I mean, how can you face the world with a roughed up face? A face full of blemishes, dark spots and is unevenly toned? It is in an attempt to run away from such a face that you are likely to invest in a basketful of beauty products. However, even after this entire struggle you face may still remain unhealthy and worn out. All because you have neglected the most important skin care routine: washing."
From the blog: “See your health care provider or dental surgeon if:
Your teeth are worn, harmed or touchy
You have tormented in your jaw, face or ear
Others gripe that you make a grinding commotion while you sleep
You have a bolted jaw that won't open or close properly
If you see that your kid is granulating his or her teeth or has different signs or side effects of Bruxism — make sure to specify it at your tyke's next dental arrangement."
From the blog: :"We are affected daily by our hormone levels so much so that we often just accept the issues as a way of life. Fortunately, understanding our hormones and the effects their levels have on our body can make dealing with the side effects more tolerable."
From the blog: :"While international and global measures are being implemented and treaty between countries is being drafted, the battle against the production, exportation, importation and distribution of counterfeit medicines still poses a challenge to regional authorities.”
From the blog: :"While losing those stubborn excess pounds will never be quick and easy, there is a way to get some extra help naturally. Adding certain "super foods" to your daily diet can help you lose weight, and one of the most effective is coconut oil. Recently released studies seem to show that adding virgin coconut oil to your daily diet can improve your general health, along with helping you to lose weight safely and naturally. With all of the benefits associated with virgin coconut oil, it is easy to see why islanders have depended on it for centuries. ”
