Beat Your Skin Problems Today and Start Living Life to the Full
It's somewhat absurd but it's a fact of life--skin problems can hinder you from living life to the full if you don't know how to beat them. They tend to keep you indoors, or worse withdrawn from humanity.

And if you're not enjoying life to the full right now, your health can be direly affected. Most ailments are due to a sever lack of happiness. Mark those words.

Some skin blemishes are not that serious--some dark spots, a little bit of discoloration, some freckles, dry skin. They are problems but they're nothing like pimples or acne. Especially acne.

Acne, for instance, is not just ugly; they're painful as well. One wrong move or touch and it's a big OUCH! Then it glows an ugly red and swells. So they definitely take the zest out of your life.

What do you do?

But before that, the first question we should ask ourselves probably should be, why are we so bothered by skin problems especially on the face?

Facial skin problems seem to demolish your world. This is because your face is your "product image" to the world. Marketing and advertising experts are so keen on presenting to the world the best product image because everything hinges around it, especially how people are going to like it.

But you can create your own facial "marketing," as it were, so you can improve your "product image." It's all in the mind. Study every angle of your facial profile and see what positive aspects you can build on--even with skin problems and all. For sure, you have facial angles,sides and expressions that bring out the best in you (God has made sure everyone has them) and you have to build on them.

Likewise, see what angels, sides and expressions bring out the worse in you and learn how to get rid of them. I'm not saying you start wearing an unnatural face. Unnatural facial expressions are the worst. What I mean is weed out the bad and retain the good--and develop it.

Got it?

Anyway, going back to skin problems, with enough imagination and skills, it's easy to hide skin blemishes, even pimples and acne. To get some tips, check out my blog, Shape Well, on this.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
