Shirlie's Daughters' 6 simple tips to maintain healthy skin.
Before we give out the healthy skin tips, we have to make a note of what causes damage to your skin. Below mentioned are the reasons.
1. Lack of hydration:
Just as you need to hydrated to circumvent the sensation of an extremely dry throat, it is essential to hydrate to keep away the dry and pliable feeling from your skin. The skin cells are also made of water and need to be restocked for the skin to stay hydrated. Drinking a lot of water is the only way to go about this because water is claimed to be the best food for skin.
The reasons you started is not important but, by now you must have the understanding that it does nothing to combat your stress levels. The only thing it manages to do is make you prone to various respiratory, heart troubles and dry your skin out and make you look like a cracked board.
3. Sun damage:
Fun in the sun makes you feel amazing, but then when you look at your skin in the mirror, and your face falls, literally. The damage your skin has suffered due to exposure to the UV rays can be seen. You cant avoid the sun but you can use sun protection. Never forget it.
4. Lack of exercise:
This causes weight gain, and introduces very many health problems but it also plays a role in the lack of luster in your skin. There isn’t enough flow of blood which is essential for the oxygen to travel across the body to each cell including the skin cells.
5. Bad eating habits:
The skin needs different nutrients. Feed your skin the right food and it will respond with that lovely look you want. Tit for tat!
Now that you know the leading causes of skin damage, here are the tips to gain healthy skin.
How to get healthy skin:
Tip 1: Minimal makeup
Ladies, please lessen makeup usage! It is really not necessary to always use so much make-up blush, concealer, just slow down. It may add a fine coating to your skin making it glowing skin, but what about your real skin? Is it really glowing? No matter the brand, it damages your skin to a large extent. We are not asking you to throw them off your shelf; keep them for use on those special days. The rest of the days, tone, moisturize, and use sunscreen. Let your skin breathe.
Tip 2: Face cleansing
Beauty experts have stated numerous times when asked how to maintain healthy skin, that you must clean your everyday. Even if you are too tired after a long party, cleanse all dirt and makeup from your skin. Your face needs to be cleared of all the chemicals in makeup. The makeup acts as a tight mask on your face keeping your facial pores clogged. If you go to bed with all these makeup on, you’ll wake up the next morning with a huge embarrassing pimple.
Tip 3: Slather on sunscreen
Sunscreen is a must for your skin. The rays of the sun are extremely harmful. Skin cancer, premature aging, skin rashes all of these are caused when your skin gets too much sun exposure without protection.
Use a big dollop of sunscreen with SPF on your face whenever you are going out to protect your skin of all the anomalies caused to your skin by the harmful sun rays. It does not matter the season or whether the sun is out today or it’s cloudy. Use sunscreen always. Beauty experts also advise using sunscreens even if you are at home or inside a car or even if you on a flight. Celebs swear by SPF measured sunscreen to keep skin healthy and free from any diseases.
Tip 4: Exfoliating face
All the healthy skin tips for women say that you should exfoliate your face at least twice a week. Scrubbing your face will rid your facial skin of all the dead cells that might have clogged your pored leading to acne breakouts, blackheads and whiteheads. Scrubbing your face will also improve your complexion, adds a glow to your skin while also clearing your skin of all toxins. Don’t scrub your skin daily, it will cause your skin to become dry.
Tip 5: Moisturize
Yes, other than keeping yourself internally hydrated, also use a good moisturizer to feed your skin. Moisturizers do not add a great deal of moisture by themselves but they lock in the present moisture and are hence essential to keep your skin hydrated. After a bath, make it a routine to moisturize your face daily to keep it hydrated. Before bedtime, place a towel soaked in warm water on your face this allows the pores of your face to open, allowing the moisturizer to soak into your skin.
Tip 6: Eat proper food to get healthy skin
Food provides life to your skin. Everything you eat in your everyday life contributes to a healthy skin. Only that you have to cut out on some and add some more. Cut out sugars and processed foods and add fruits, vegetables, and good fats.
Lashes look their fattest when the mascara goes all the way down to the roots. Trouble is, it’s hard to get it there without getting black gunk all over your lids. To combat this, take a business card and hold it at the base of your lashes, then swipe on mascara. The excess will end up on the card, not on you.
Baby your lashes.
Just like the hair on your head, your lashes need to be conditioned. To do this, you can take the time to swipe on a special lash gel every night, or you can multitask by using a mascara with conditioning agents already built in. Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara is infused with argan oil, coconut oil, and vitamin E to keep lashes soft and healthy, while adding dramatic color and length at the same time.
To avoid eye infections (and dry, hard-to-use mascara), we highly recommend replacing your tube every three months. If your mascara gets gunky before that time though, blast the outside of the tube with a blow dryer for 10 seconds to temporarily thin it out and make it easier to apply.
After swiping on your mascara normally, try holding your wand vertically and touching the tip of the brush to each individual lash. This takes just seconds, but adds tons of extra length.
Curl without a curler.
If you don’t have an eyelash curler handy, try pressing a spoon against your eyes for a few seconds before applying mascara. The curvature of the spoon will cause lashes to gently bend. For an even easier, stealth-like method, choose a mascara formula that actually curls on its own! Avon True Color Wide Awake Mascara has a specially engineered hourglass brush that curls lashes as you swipe, plus a “lift and lock” formula that helps them stay that way for hours.
Stop clumps before they start.
After pulling your wand from the tube, take a clean tissue and wipe off any big globs of product. Removing the excess before you start swiping means it won’t end up on your lashes!
Powder your way to bolder lashes.
Apply one coat of mascara, then brush translucent face powder (yes, really!) on top. Finish with another coat of mascara to lock it in. The powder adds heft and length. It’s an old makeup artist trick—and it totally works!
The eyeshadow color you choose can make a big difference in how your lashes look. With lighter shades, your lashes will be visible from root to tip, so they’ll automatically look longer. If you’d like them to look thicker, use a darker eyeshadow along the lashline. This tricks the eye into thinking your lashes are thicker than they really are. (Sneaky, right?) To experiment on your own, choose a kit packed with multiple light and dark shades like Avon True Color 8-in-1 Eyeshadow Palette.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among black women, and an estimated 30,700 new cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2016. Similar to the pattern among white women, breast cancer incidence rates among black women increased rapidly during much of the 1980s , largely due to increased detection by mammography screening. However, while rates thereafter generally stabilized in white women they continued to increase, albeit more slowly, in black women (0.5% per year from 1986 to 2012).4 As a result, incidence rates in black and white women converged in 2012. The continued increase in incidence rates in black women may in part reflect the rising prevalence of obesity in this group (Figure 9).
During 2008-2012, the overall breast cancer incidence rate in black women was 124.3 cases per 100,000 women, 3% lower than in white women (128.1). However, rates were higher in black than in white women in seven US states (Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Tennessee), and were not significantly different in 24 states.26 Breast cancer incidence rates are also higher among blacks than whites for women under age 45. The median age of diagnosis is 58 for black women, compared to 62 for white women.
All women can help reduce their risk of breast cancer by avoiding weight gain and obesity (for postmenopausal breast cancer), engaging in regular physical activity, and minimizing alcohol intake. Women should consider the increased risk of breast can- cer associated with combined estrogen and progestin hormone therapy use when evaluating treatment options for menopausal symptoms. In addition, recent research indicates that long-term, heavy smoking may also increase breast cancer risk, particularly among women who start smoking before their first pregnancy. More information about breast cancer is available in the American Cancer Society publication Breast Cancer Facts & Figures, available online at www.cancer.org.

Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death among black women, surpassed only by lung cancer. An estimated 6,310 deaths from breast cancer are expected to occur among black women in 2016. Breast cancer death rates among black women increased from 1975 to 1991, but declined thereafter as a result of improvements in both early detection and treatment. Prior to the mid-1980s, breast cancer death rates for white and black women were similar. However, a larger increase in black women from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s, followed by a slower decline, has resulted in a widening disparity. Since 1990, breast cancer death rates dropped 23% in black women compared to a 37% drop in white women. As a result, breast cancer death rates in the most recent time period (2008-2012) are 42% higher in black women compared to white women, despite similar incidence rates. Higher death rates among black women likely reflects a combination of factors, including differences in stage at diagnosis, obesity and comorbidities, and tumor characteristics, as well as access, adherence, and response to high-quality cancer treatment.
