Here is What No One Told You About Tumeric

by

Turmeric is long known as a blood purifier and is known for its properties of giving a natural glow and radiance to the skin.

It has antibacterial and anti-ageing properties.It is used as ayurvedic herbs for skin diseases. It helps reduce blemishes, acne, inflammation of the skin, pigmentation and helps prevent many skin ailments. It also slows down the skin ageing process and acts as a healer of the skin.

To brighten skin, you can form a paste by mixing turmeric powder and rice powder together using raw milk and tomato juice.

Apply this paste on face and neck for 30 minutes. After that rinse off with lukewarm water. You can use also turmeric in the form of night cream. Prepare a paste of turmeric and milk or yoghurt. Apply this mixture on face and allow it to dry. Leave it overnight. In the morning wash off the mask using a gentle cleanser. Yorubas call it ata ile pupa.

I have been using Tumeric in my skincare routine for over six months. It is my go to product when making natural skincare products.

News Flash: Your Smartphone is the Filthiest Thing in Your Handbag

by

Smartphone

According to a 2010 study by a UK magazine, the average smartphone has 18 times more potentially harmful bacteria on it than the flusher on the toilet in the average public restroom.

Yup, you heard right. As women we like to act as clean freaks so I can imagine how disappointed you are right now. So how did your phone become so dirty?

Our smartphones are hot spots for germs not only because we constantly clutch at them with our filthy hands, but because we pass them around to all our friends who also touch it with dirty hands.

We never clean them, we store them in warm places, pouch, phone cover, 360 protector, you name it and we cannot stop using our phones especially while doing the business in the toilet.

The average smartphone carries 11,020 germs per square inch — and in some tests, one in six randomly selected phones had fecal matter on it.

Some microbiologists also warn that between 20 and 30 percent of infectious diseases can be transferred from fingertip to phone glass, where the microbes can survive on your phone for several days at a time.

Your phone picks up germs from your mouth, nose, and ears when you use it. You also probably place it on dirty surfaces, like your desk at work (which contains 79,000 germs per square inch on your computer alone), your germ-ridden kitchen counter, your purse (a third of purses have been found to carry E. coli bacteria) and occasionally somewhere in your bathroom.

Plus how hot phones get on their own — and how we usually keep them someplace warm, like our pants pocket, our hands, or next to our face — and there you go, ripe conditions for crazy germ growth.

While our phones are covered in germs, most of them are not actually all that dangerous to adults with fully functioning immune systems. A University of Surrey study found that most of the germs on the phones were harmless.

To clean your phone, power your phone down every other day, take it out of its case, and then wipe down the phone and the case with the wipes.

Then wash your hands frequently, this will help reduce the number of germs you carry around. Also avoid passing your phone around indiscriminately.

There you go, Ms. Dirty Phone, your Smartphone just got cleaner.

Why You Should Never Mix Fashion with Studying

by


The attention given to fashion is getting serious by the day, every lady wants to look good at all cost. The word fashion brings to mind a flash of colour with a dash of glamour.

Fashion this day has been taken to the extreme, ladies use it as a means to express themselves. There is no doubt in the fact that your dressing helps in building your self confidence because when you dress well, you will be well addressed.

A painful aspect of fashion is that students neglect their studies and put more time to looking good like their lives depend on it. Actually, most of them believe their lives depend on fashion “if I don’t look good, I won’t be popular or accepted”.

The saying “there is beauty in simplicity” is not an ordinary saying , some ladies look smarter in simple clothes than in expensive ones.

More time and money should be devoted to academics rather than clothes and make ups.
Ebunoluwa a 200 level student of Philosophy department is used to hiding behind her friends when going in and out of class because she feels she is too simple and not properly dressed. Though a very smart girl, Ebun believes she is not as beautiful as her peers and doesn’t have so much confidence in herself, she has lost her self esteem all in the name of looking good and is now tarnishing a prospect of a bright future.

If you want to be successful in life, your motto should not be fashion but *simple living and high thinking*.

It is however a nice thing to be admired by others, but it becomes bad when it begins to affect our views and manners.

Fashion is not a bad thing so far it doesn’t impact a negative side in us and in others.
