Things that can easily ruin your good looks

When it comes to your physical appearance, things which you need to avoid are much more important that those you need to do. Simply put, women do a lot of things that are counterproductive jeopardizing their health and beauty in the process.
This is why we made a list of 7 things that you need to avoid at all costs.

  1. Avoid using hot water for showering
There are several reasons why you should avoid hot water. First of all, it is really bad for circulation and blood vessels. It can be really troublesome during the winter as it adapts you to warmth which poses a problem when you get out. When it comes to beauty, warm water is disastrous for your skin. It completely dries it.
  1. Use body milk after showering
Even if you do not use too much hot water, there is still a chance your skin will become a bit dry after showering. Make sure to apply a thin layer of body milk on moist skin. This will lead to quicker absorption. Besides the fact that body milk hydrates your skin, it also provides important vitamins and minerals. Naturally, this makes it much softer to the touch.
  1. Be careful during combing
First of all, combing is something that you should seldom do. Although it makes your hair really nice and neat, it also destroys follicles. Continuous combing can even lead to several hair issues and primarily hair loss. Even worse thing from frequent combing is combing your hair while it’s wet. Some women do it because it’s easier. Unfortunately, it is also something that leads to split ends.
  1. Handling pimples
Women simply hate pimples and that is ok! But, you need to be very careful with them. Popping pimples is the worst thing you can do. It only increases the initial area and makes it look much worse than it initially was. Furthermore, it can lead to appearance of new ones. If you wish to handle pimples, do it naturally. One good option is to improve your diet. Exercise also helps as it regulates your sweat and makes skin nicer. Lastly, it is always good to visit seaside from time to time. Sea air can do wonders for you.
  1. Throw away expired products
There is a good reason for having expiration date on cosmetic products. As the time passes, they lose their properties and by using them, you can only jeopardize your face and skin. Have in mind that nowadays, products have various chemical ingredients. So much so, that most beauticians recommend completely switching to natural solutions. With that, we come to the next point.
  1. Try natural approach
Truth be told, our body is able to regulate most of its processes. If you have a nice, healthy diet you will also have a nice skin. On top of that, it is much better to buy natural products as body can easily absorb things it’s accustomed to.
  1. Don’t overdo it with make-up
Lastly, you should be really conservative with make-up. Although it is hard to completely eliminate it from your life, you need to use it in moderation. Also, as soon as your day is finished, make sure to remove it. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is leaving make-up on your face as you go to bed. You skin is able to absorb a lot of things including volatile chemicals. So, be smart about it.

These are the main things that will keep your face and body protected. Make sure to implement them on a daily basis!

Book Review: "Easter Blessings"

Book Description

Winter’s nap is over, and new life is all around!
Flowers are blooming. Birds are chirping. And the Really Woolly characters are discovering God’s goodness all around them. Curl up with your little one, and join the fun while learning about the hope of Easter and springtime!
Adorable rhymes, sweet Bible verses, and prayer starters will make reading time a special moment for you and your child—to connect with each other.

My Review: 
I love this adorable fun rhyming book.   Reading this book has me excited about warmer weather, celebrating Jesus, and the springtime of new life!  This is a board book with a fun rhyme and scripture.   It could easily be read each day instead of in one sitting.  The pages also include a mini prayer that could help you and your child build that prayer time together.  Overall this is an adorable book that is going to be perfect to get before Easter is here!  

Book Review: "Found"

From the bestselling The Jesus Storybook Bible, with over two million products sold, comes Found based on Psalm 23. Written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago, little ones will fall in love with this padded cover board book that reminds them of God’s Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

My Review: 
The book "Found" is like walking through the scripture Psalm 23.  It has pictures that go along with it as if we were the lamp and Jesus our Shepherd.   This is a board book and is very short.   This is a Sally Lloyd-Jones book so it has one of my favorite lines from the Jesus Storybook Bible, "God's never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, Always and forever love will go, too!"   Sally uses that line in most of the stories in the Storybook Bible.   Jesus is the center of it all... he is our answer!   Pictures are calm and the scripture is a favored one among many.   

Bible Review: "NIV The Plans I Have for You"

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. —Jeremiah 29:11
God has great plans for you. It’s true. The Plans I Have for You Holy Bible will inspire readers to dream about their future and to trust that God has great plans for each and every one of us.
The features of this latest addition to The Plans I Have for You collection include:
  • Introduction from author Amy Parker
  • 50 God’s Big Plans pages tell how God had big plans for individuals in the Bible and his people as a whole, for example, Moses, Noah, Jonah, Esther, and YOU!

  • Lively two-color art from Vanessa Brantley Newton, illustrator of The Plans I Have for You picture book

My Review:
I have had the pleasure of reviewing Amy Parkers other book, "The Plans I have for You."  I enjoyed reading those books to my kids.  This NIV Bible includes a few features that might spark the attention of your young reader!   The 25 Promise Prayers and 50 God's Big Plans are scattered throughout the Bible are the things that I would have been paging through to find and read.  I really like the feature of the God's Big Plans because they teach children the promises of God.  NIV translation is a great one for younger readers to understand more as well... in fact I use it a lot for myself.

Book Review: "Angels in the Bible for Little Ones"

Angels in the Bible for Little Ones gives children a fascinating look into how powerful behind-the-scenes helpers interacted with Bible greats such as Abraham, Daniel, and Mary, acting as messengers, protectors, warriors, and more. This padded cover board book, written by bestselling author Allia Zobel Nolan and illustrated by Alisa Massari, brings eight stories from the Bible to life for little ones.

My Review: 
This board book is one that will please the younger ones as much as the older ones.   Kids of all ages like to understand the uniqueness of Angels.   When we look inside our Bibles we will find several stories where Angels help us or delivered a message.   This board book covers eight of my favorite biblical stories such as Mary and Daniel! The pictures are also very pleasing to the eyes and help kids vision the stories more clearly.
