Why People Look at Your Face

Congratulate us! This is our 200th article!

Anyway, the best skin areas are those on the soles of your feet and on your butt area. They're the smoothest and firmest. Unfortunately, people don't look at your feet soles or your butt. They look at your face, first and last.

And your face is where skin is most sensitive.

I don't know why it's like that, but it's like that.

Most people don't have problems with their facial skin, but some do. Like I did in college. I always had this struggle before I left home for school---how to fix my facial skin. And the main problem was what soap to use.

I was a health and fitness buff then, but your shapely body often didn't matter when you had an oily, messy face. You wash it now and it's clean and tidy, but not after an hour or so. That was my problem.

I had used a number of recommendations---Neco, Perla, Safeguard, Ivory, Johnson's Baby Soap, laundry soaps---and they were good soaps (except the laundry soaps). But what wasn't good was my face. Nothing worked on me. Before I reached school, I always felt sticky and dirty on the face.

So, for ten long years (yeah, I went to college for 10 years because I was a working student) that was my everyday problem.

Bad news was, it's hard to hide the face. And it's the one place on your body people look at first and often make their judgment about you. People at the office, school, and public jeeps and buses all looked at your face the moment you stepped in.

Worst was when I applied for jobs.

So, why do people look at your face first and last? Because it's a kind of resume or biodata. To most folks, it can speak volumes of who you are.

You young folks today are lucky. There's NLighten Kojic Papaya with Glutathione. I and my sons have been using it since last year and it's been effectively helping us keep our faces tidy all day.

I work out a lather on my face and let it stay there for 2 to 3 minutes. Then I rinse. Oiliness is gone and stays gone for hours! The same works for my kids.

If you want to buy from me, just comment below or contact me.

Here's what NLighten Kojic Papaya with Glutathione is all about:

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…
