Honey Cupping at Home for Cellulite - Easy Remedy

Cellulite is a new abnormal distribution of the tissues under the skin. It is caused by subcutaneous enlarged fat cells grouped together and surrounded by protein fibrous bands, that are moved through the damaged connective tissue up to be near the epidermis.

Cupping creates a vacuum effect that helps relocate those components to acquire the normal distribution, or a situation that is close to normal, thus destroying cellulite. To improve blood circulation in your skin tissue and muscle, and reinforce the vacuum effect, you will use honey with cupping.

1- Cupping using a cup or a glass jar:
- Apply a thin layer of honey to the affected zone and then apply the cup to the skin using circular motions (your skin will be sucked into the cup)
- Tear away the cup from your body and repeat the process for 5-10 minutes
- You should make sure that the skin is sucking into the cup, if not, just press the cup to your body and push more skin under the cup using your finger
- Do not overdo to avoid bruises
- Do this massage at least twice a week for 1 month

2- Cupping using your hands :
Another way is to use your hands to do a massage using honey, but this requires that you do it 5-10 minutes a time, every other day for 1 m0nth (15 times). The results start being seen after the second massage.
- Apply a thin layer of honey over the problem zone (hips and buttocks will need about 2 teaspoons), then press your clean DRY hands to your skin
- Easy at first, tearing away your hands will become more difficult with every move because the tension force increases. it is slightly painful
- Continue until honey turns white under your hands
- After the massage your skin should be red with a burning sensation. Any small bruises will go fast

Emu Oil Skin Care, Scar, and Acne

Emu oil is extracted from the Australian Emu bird. It has been used for very long years by the Australian aborigines for the treatment of burns, wounds, bruises, and as a pain relief of for bones, muscles and joint disorders.Recent scientific research has confirmed the benefit of this oil in many of the claimed ones. It reduces scar formation and anti-inflammatory effect of arthritis and induces relief of eczema.

Emu oil is composed of esters of the following fatty acids :approximately 70% mono-unsturated acids, with the largest component Oleic acid, 20% Linoleic acid, and 1-2% Linolenic acid. You can find these informations even more detailed on the internet, but what attracted my attention about its composition are the following aspects:

- It is a neutral lipid since it does not contain phospholipids, a property that is shared by fish oil. It contains high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids (Linolenic acid), Omega 6 fatty acids (Linoleic acid), and Omega 9 fatty acids (Oleic acid)

This composition offers the the skin the following advantages:

- Lack of phospholipid makes it penetrate deeply into the skin. Phospholipids are an essential component of most cell membranes, and once they are abundant they readily form membranes (micelles), when they entrap any thing from the surrounding environment, the micelle may increase in size and clog pores in the skin (when applied topically) , thus they do not form black heads, a property that is appreciated in treatment of acne.

- Its content of omega 3 fatty acis that are readily incorporated into the cell membranes, makes these cells are more capable of producing larger amounts of prostaglandins 1 and 3, which counteract the effect of prostaglandins 2 in originating inflammation.

- Its similar composition to that of the cell membranes makes it suitable for carrying an active ingredient, as well as having a quick response, since it is readily incorporated into the cell membranes as it is without any more further processing.

Tips to Get Rid of Hair Product Buildup

If you comb or brush hair and get flaky powder along the hair shaft, this is not dandruff and more likely it is a buildup problem that causes your hair to look and feel dull and lifeless.

Probably you use too much products on your hair, since these products build up over time. Styling hair by using mousses, gels, hairsprays, non-water soluble waxes, 2 in 1 shampoos, or
applying gel in a blob may cause that buildup. They should form a sheath around your hair shaft to style it, with time they form a layer that gives your hair that appearance.

Tips to defeat Hair Product Buildup

- Use the above mentioned products sparingly
- Apply the spray further away from the hair about 15 cm ( 6 inches)
- Work gel around your hand before putting it through your hair
- Get old fashioned 2 steps of shampoo and conditioner
- Rinse with Apple cider vinegar
- Add a bit of washing up liquid to your shampoo every so often
- Use a detox shampoo
- Use a good clrifying shampoo once a month
- Switch shampoo brands every few weeks ( don't listen to them)
- Use baby shampoo and add a teaspoon of either wine vinegr or Lemon juice
- Scrub your sculb with baking soda mixed with water, or add some to a handful of your shampoo
- Put tea tree oil in your hair, but the pine smell will be strong for weeks. You can use tea tree oil shampoo
- Use a product that contains horehound, oakmoss, and patchouli to detoxify your hair
- Mix a tablespoon of Bicarbonate of Soda to a handful of your shampoo and wash it as usual

Tips For Hair Loss In Women

That tissue that is formed of dead cells with no function in the body, is very important to women as it is their natural crown. They feel depressed if they lost it. Hair loss that we are concerned with is the hair over the scalp, it only represents 2 percent of all the hair over the body.
Women try every means including laser to remove any hair that is not present over the head.
In 95 percent of cases of both men and women, it is a common hereditary condition, caused by what is called androgenetic alopecia.

In the old days when pharmacies were mostly using the mortar to dispence medicines, there was a remarkable topical mixture that was composed of the alkaloid Pilocarpine, or any plant containing it like Jaborandi, Salicylic acid, Tar and Panthenol. it worked sometimes.

Loss of hair is treated by either :
* oral anti-estrogens like:
- Spironolactone (Aldactone A)
- Cyproterone Acetate
- Finasteride ( 5 alpha reductase inhibitor)

* And/or the topical Minoxidil 2%, or Minoxidil 5% which is not FDA approved.

Neither of these treatments are cures, and the hair gained from their use will be lost within months of stopping the treatment.

Here are some tips that were gained through experience, which you may try them to help reduce the intensity of the case:

- Remove all you can of the undesired hair
- Eat more protein during the time you suffer from hair loss
- Use a shampoo that contains protein, specially Keratin
- Use a shampoo that contains tar (pine tar or coal tar). Be aware that it may affect the stability of dyed hair color
- Take some supplements that contain Biotin, minerals specially, Iron, and Zinc and may also contain panthenol
- If you have the oral medicines you can make a topical solution, by grindin the tablets in 1 strip and adding them to 100 ml of either Olive oil or alcohol (Vodka)
- Macerate 1 teaspoon of hot chillis in 100 ml of Olive oil for 2 days, rub the head skin with this mixture daily
