Beauty Tip – Age Fighting Ingredients

This month, September 2011, our discussion/tips is going to be on Aging gracefully. I am going to start this series on Alpha-lipoic Acid. Its function. How it is important to us as we age.  The source and supplements.
 
WHAT IS ALPHA-LIPOIC ACID
Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is made by the body and is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy. Antioxidants are substances that attack “free radicals,” waste products created when the body turns food into energy. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells in the body, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. Which means your health is at risk if your body is not producing enough alpha-lipoic acid to attract the free radicals.

A healthy body makes enough alpha-lipoic acid. But as we get older we produce less alpha-lipoic acid because of loss of energy, less or lack of exercise,  bad eating habits etc. It has been demonstrated that free radical damage is one of the leading causes of the symptoms we know as aging. As we get older, the levels of free radicals in our bodies increase, causing a decrease in the efficiency of our cells. This leads to a lack of energy, and lower immune system. That is why we  need to eat right (a balance diet – more of vegetables and fruits)and  exercise more as we age.  Reduce your eating out, especially fast food and eat home made food. Another very important point is eating late at night. Try as much as you can to avoid eating late, as the food will not digest, turning into free radical that can damage organs and tissues as we age.

Apart from our body producing alpha-lipoic acid, it can also be found in some of our food, like, red meat, organ meats (such as liver), and yeast. 

Some of the functions of Alpha-lipoic acid is that it can help to lower blood sugar levels, and its ability to kill free radicals may help reduce pain, burning, itching, tingling, etc.

SUPPLEMENTS WITH ALA  

Supplements are also available to assist the alpha-lipoic acid our body produce and the one gotten from our red meat, organ meats and yeast. i.e Ralapure R-Alpha-lipoic acid. Swanson Ultra – Alpha-lipoic Acid.

GNC Acetyl-L-Carnitine Alpha Lipoic Acid. Make sure you read your labels because the ingredients must include ALA. 
Please, consult your doctor before using any supplements/medication.

“Gele” Tying

Have you been to a party and you see a pretty lady all dressed up in a Nigerian attire but with the Gele not complimenting the dress? In our parlance, this is “fashion Suicide” and most times it does an irreparable damage to a woman’s social standing. We often ask the question – What are these people thinking when they left their houses with such a horrible look?

A beautifully tied Gele is a delight to look at and complement a woman’s attire anyday.

The ARISE Fashion Show

LAGOS, the commercial nerve center and the fashion capital of Nigeria is moving up in the fashion world. Recently, ARISE magazine, organized the Arise Magazine Fashion week in the city and it was the bam!

Yours faithfully, the Beautifiers, was invited and when it comes to Beauty we were not lacking. The event that took place between Thursday March 10 and Saturday March 13th 2011 brought notable names in the fashion world to town. It also afforded us, at the Beautifiers, networking opportunities and a platform to showcase our work and to reach out to beautiful minds in the fashion world.

The Beautifiers chatting with the Press.

While there were a few hiccups here and there with the organization, we are pleased to be associated with Thisday and the Arise Magazine in their effort ion consciousness of Nigeria and expose the abundant talents that are available in the country to the international audience.

We are surely looking forward to the fashion week for next year and re convinced that this will be great as well.

Changing our world – one step at a time.

Today, the elections into the executive committee of my Resident Associations were held. I contested for the position of General Secretary and won.

The satisfaction is not in winning but in knowing that I am doing something, that many of our citizens are not doing – offering their services to the community, the states and our country in ways to bring about positive change.

As we all know, the elections to the various elective positions in our country (states, federal legislature and the presidency) will be holding the month of April 2011. While it is too late to contest for elective positions, it is not late to make the decision to go out to vote. Democracy operates on the fundamental principle that power belongs to the people. The power is in the votes that we cast and not the ones we do not while sitting in the comfort of our houses analyzing issues in our nation.

To all our esteemed clients and lovers we , at the Beautifiers, will be out on the three consecutive saturdays in April to vote. Who we will vote for, is a closely held secret and we would not convince you to vote for any particular candidate. We would encourage you to go out to vote. To defend your votes, please take your phone cameras along and feel free to take pictures and record events that have the slightest appearance of being a way to sabotage your votes.

Our votes are necessary and they must count in this election. May the best candidate win knowing fully well that power belongs to God.

Beauty Tips from theBeautifiers

Piccture perfect looks

Smooth, clear, glowing skin is one of the many features of beauty. Facial make-up has a magical quality that appeal to both the cosmetologist and her customer, subtle, emphasizing the client’s most attractive facial features while minimizing those features that are less attractive. Taking into consideration the clients facial structure, the color of the eyes, hair and skin, especially during wedding when the bride have to change her clothes twice or three times, each of the outfit must correspond with the make-up, hear-tie, accessories, shoe and bag.
Q
How can l choose my foundation to get an even coverage?
A
The success of any make-up depends on the correct color selection and application of the foundation. Foundation is not just another product in the make-up regime, rather, it helps to even skin tone and color, conceal minor imperfection of the skin and protect the skin from climate, dirt, and debris. First know your skin type oily, normal, combination, acne prone, or dry. Normal/dry skin – oil base (liquid foundation). Oily skin – water base (cream to powder foundation).When shopping for foundation, make sure you text before buying, simply apply a thin layer to your chin line, blend and wait for about 30 – 40 seconds, if it is the right color, it blends with your skin or better still ask for color selector which can be used on your skin to select the perfect color. Be careful though when applying your foundation, because too much of it will make your face cake up.

Q
Face wash or cleansing cream for oily/combination skin?
A
Definitely the face wash, because face wash cuts excess amount of oil. It is a detergent foaming type of cleanser with a neutral or slightly acidic. It cleans the face of its excess oil. Leaving it firm or a little tight. While the cleansing cream is an oil base emulsion good for very dry/matured skin.
