Ladies! Six Lies You Should Never Tell Yourself


Many a times, you tend to be too hard on yourself as a lady and say so many negative things to yourself. When you tell yourself a lot of negative things, you begin to believe them. You know these things are not true and you shouldn’t give in. The best thing you can do to yourself is to see the best in you.

Lie # 6: I have a bad posture

Most girls are too conscious of themselves especially when they walk with their peers, they think their steps are horrible, their posture is nothing to write home about. The answer is simple, stand up straight and keep that confidence going strong.

Lie # 5: No one wants to be my friend

This is actually the biggest lie you would tell yourself. There is always someone out there who admired you and wants to be like you. “I never knew someone liked me this much to the extent of wanting to be my friend” Simi, a final year student of political science once said to me after being told her attitude was loved . Never call yourself a loner, try meeting new people, there are people out there that share something in common with you.

Lie # 4: I’m not smart

There is no “madam perfect” out there, everyone has their flaws. Nobody is good at everything. I realized during a discussion test that the smartest girl in my class was never really smart, she worked her way into making everyone believe she was that smart. When you find yourself struggling with a course, never be too proud to ask for help, you would be helping yourself, and who knows, you could also be helping that person helping you help yourself.

Lie # 3: I’m not attractive

Common, why focus on the negative. The calendar models you see here and there are not the real them, never think they are perfect. Look for that positive thing in you, your good legs, your flawless face, your contagious smile or your perfect eyes.
Remember, you are wonderfully and beautifully made by God.

I never believed I was beautiful until an admirer(My crush) told me I had always been his secret admirer, trust I felt so good. But never wait for someone to tell you how beautiful you are, always believe you are beautiful. Say to yourself I AM BEAUTIFUL.

Lie # 2: I am too short or too tall

Why complain about your height? Do you want to be short of you are tall or vice versa? It’s all the same, no matter the height, you can’t control it, never allow others intimidate you with their height, you will always be the perfect you. “LOVE YOURSELF”.

Lie # 1: No one understands me

Do you really care if someone understands you? Why care so much about something you should give little or no thoughts to. The fact is you understand yourself, so with that, it is left to whoever wants to understand you . I will always repeat, ” the best person you can always be is you”

What You Should Know About Excessive Sweating on Hands and Feet


A Surma proverb says “ A coward sweats in the water.” In Africa, sweat symbolizes strength and agility because our elders believe that he who sweats will reap.

Every human is born with approximately two million and four million sweat glands to regulate our body temperature.

Sweating is the body’s natural way of keeping our temperature at an ideal level. It is regulated by the autonomic nervous system, which means we have no control over it.

Contrary to what our elders believe, when sweat becomes excessive, it cannot be dismissed as just hardwork. The condition is called Hyperhidrosis.

Severe cases can have serious consequences, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands without wiping their palms first. There are even instances where they cannot move with bare feet because their sweaty feet stain the floor.

What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

Doctors say neurologic, endocrine, infectious, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause hyperhidrosis, although most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy.

Heat and emotions may also trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather.

How to Cure Hyperhidrosis

Dr Bets Breedt on Health24 lists Antiperspirants, Iontophoresis therapy, Prescription drugs and Surgery as part of the ways to cure Hyperhidrosis.

She says “The first step is to try an antiperspirant – but choose one that lists aluminium chloride as one of its ingredients. These form tiny plugs in the pores that temporarily block the sweat glands. They must be applied every 24 to 48 hours and you should see an improvement after three weeks.”

She also explains that a scalpel can effectively stop excessive sweating but it should be a last resort because there are always risks attached to surgery and your doctor will discuss them with you at length.

Iontophoresis therapy

Iontophoresis was introduced over 50 years ago as a treatment for excessive sweating. The procedure uses water to conduct an electric current to the skin a few times each week, for about 10-20 minutes per session, followed by a maintenance program of treatments at 1- to 3-week intervals, depending on the patient’s response. Iontophoresis treatments are absolutely painless.

Iontoderma treats hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet using iontophoresis

Studies have shown that iontophoresis machines positively treat 90% to 100% of cases where patients experience palmar and plantar hyperhidrosis.

A simple 20-minute session once a week is often all it takes to achieve a comfortable perspiration level.

Contrary to cream or medication, tap water electrotherapy machines do not rely on potentially harmful chemicals. Since excessive sweating is a lifelong condition, Iontoderma promotes the use of chemical free treatment.

3 Fashion Items Every Job Seeker Must Possess




Sunglasses are very vital because with all the climate change going around, the Sun can be brutal these days and you don’t want the whole job seekers rat race to change your skin colour. It has been recommended that sunglasses should be worn to protect the eyes from ultraviolet radiation (UV) and blue light, which can cause several serious eye problems.


Wrist Watch

You can land a job by wearing a wrist watch. Today, only few people own a functional wrist watch because you can always pull out your phone to check the time. What sets you apart during the interview is your ability to glance at your wrist watch and keep track of the time. Constantly using your phone as timepieces is a dangerous pattern because interviewers might think you are a ‘phone addict’ if you keep pulling out your phone every five minutes.

Ballet Flats shoes 2


Flats, oh yes, in some buildings without elevators, you have to climb the stairs all the way to the third floor and heels won’t help you. Having flats in your bag will come in handy anytime because by the time you jump through all the different flight of stairs in heels, you are already exhausted and disheveled for the interview. With flats, you won’t be so tired and you can simply readjust yourself.
