Skincare is vital - think about it - for years you are going to walk in your skin
If you barely have any wrinkles (lucky you), now is the time to start preventing. If you are showing any signs of aging, now is the time to help repair and restructure your skin. Fortunately there are multiple ways to tackle wrinkles without having to go under the knife. Continue reading to find out what those tactics are and you'll already be on the road to younger-looking, smoother skin.
Avoid the Wrong Cleanser
Don't underestimate the power of a face wash. Using the wrong kind can wreak havoc on the skin. This principle also applies to bar soap- that is one of the worst things you can do to your facial skin. Bar soap is designed for the body, not the face because it can damage your facial skin's natural moisture and lipid barrier, leaving it dry, tight and pH un-balanced. Choose a cleanser that is right for your skin type (whether you're dry, oily or combo/normal).
Don't Overlook Breakthrough Ingredients
If you want to see a real improvement in your skin, you must invest in skin care products that deliver changes in the skin. Those products are formulated with innovative ingredients that work synergistically to 'communicate' with the skin cells to look and act younger as well as ingredients that encourage hydration and free-radical protection. Those ingredients include: peptides, antioxidants (especially Vitamins A, C & E), botanical stem cells, hyaluronic acid and alpha hydroxy acids (AHA's).
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
Did you know that exfoliation is one of the key components to a smoother, youthful-looking complexion? The proper method of exfoliation combined with the proper frequency can result in astounding results. There are basically two ways to exfoliate: mechanically and chemically (or enzymatically). Mechanical exfoliation simply means you are physically exfoliating your skin to remove dead skin cells with a grainy product such as a face scrub, or a facial cleansing brush or even a wash cloth. Mechanical exfoliation is an effective method, but you have to be careful with the product you're using because there are a number of face scrubs on the market that are too abrasive and can actually damage the skin overtime.
The most powerful and effective means of mechanical exfoliation is microdermabrasion. Most reputable spas and dermatologist offices offer microdermabrasion as a standalone treatment or as part of a facial. However, you can save yourself a bundle of money by avoiding routine in-office microderm treatments and invest in an at-home system like MicrodermMD Home Microdermabrasion Machine you can use by yourself. It's fairly simple to use and will impart the same results as what an Esthetician would do for you in the treatment room. Stick to exfoliating once or twice a week if your skin is on the dry side, or two to three times a week if your skin leans toward oily.
Get High-Tech With Your Skin
Non-invasive technology has really taken the skin care industry by storm. From microcurrent to galvanic and laser therapy, they can do wonders for our skin without the knife and scalpel. These treatments at the derm or spa can be costly, but luckily, Trophy Skin has created an at-home anti-aging superstar device that yields the same results as the derm's office, but at a fraction of the cost! The RejuvaliteMD Red Light is pain-free, fool-proof and can be used as often as several times a week. It improves the skin's laxity, firmness, texture, skin tone and wrinkles. It also helps to improve sun damage and age spots! That's why it's our go-to anti-aging gem.
Avoid the 3 S's: Sun, Smoking & Sugar
It is common knowledge that the sun and smoking are two top culprits behind premature aging and wrinkling, but let's re-cap: although the sun cannot be avoided completely, that is why it is imperative to wear sunscreen (in other words, a moisturizer with a built-in broad-spectrum SPF) all year round, rain or shine. Smoking destroys the skin, leaving it looking dull, sallow and wrinkly. Because smoking depletes the body's oxygen levels, it asphyxiates the skin, which gives it that lifeless complexion.
Sugar is another culprit behind wrinkles that many people are unaware of. The consumption of refined sugar causes a process called glycation in the skin- which means that sugar molecules attach to collagen fibers, causing them to cross-link, resulting in the breakdown of collagen, and thereby causing wrinkles.
Practice these anti-wrinkle skin care secrets, and you'll begin to notice years taken away from your complexion. Check out all the amazing skin care solutions at TrophySkin.com.

You have these dreams, you have these ambitions, you have absolutely no excuse not to fulfill them.
You choose what you would like to learn and give it your all. You will see how everything starts falling into place.
Learn anything and receive a certificate
This is an example of just one of my certificates I received from Udemy. (I started piling them up, printing them in color and saving them in a file - I love this - the more, the merrier)
As you can see, they are beautiful.
When you do the online courses at Udemy, you receive a certificate with your name on it, so remember to sign up with your real name.
This might sound like weird advice, but you'll be surprised how many people don't use their real names.
Remember, you'll want to print out this certificate and use it as a reference of courses you've done.
There is absolutely nothing you can't learn
Here are some more of the different individual courses below: (and these are not even close to all the courses you will find at Udemy)
Go ahead, choose one:
Use it in your homeschool
Let your kids learn anything today and receive their certificates.
Print them out and keep them in a file where you can add it to their resumé.
Kids (I think actually all of us) are visual learners.
With Udemy they watch videos and in all the courses (in Web Development and creating games) I've done so far, they give you a chance to practice too.
My son is also doing the gaming courses and will start his own online business soon. He LOVES it!!
See the advantages!!
You can learn anything anywhere
No matter where you are in the world, as long as you have access to the internet, you can learn anything at Udemy, because the courses are online.
Some of the courses can be downloaded for offline viewing as well (but not all of them).
Don't want to learn anything, but teach anything?
If you feel that you don't want to learn, but you are a good teacher, you can apply at Udemy.
My advice would be to Sign up, do a few free courses (more on that below) to take a look at the course structures, presentation, etc.
When you know exactly what and how you want to present your courses, you click on "become an instructor".
Udemy has more tutorials for you there, you can't go wrong.
And off you go - another online business in your pocket.
Earn money while you do what you love to do - teaching.

A Spider bite? The advice is everywhere, but what really works for a spider bite?
Ok, I'm not a doctor and I'm not a medical expert, I'm just a normal person - BUT spiders love biting me. (I've told my hubby "maybe I'm delicious." Of course, this is because of the law of cause and effect that they keep biting me - I'm so scared of spiders!!
My spider bite story:
We love to go camping and every time when we return from camping, there it is, bitten by a spider AGAIN.
I know the tell tale signs already:
- Yellow blister in the inside
- red around the blister
- and if you see a red line going from the bite upwards you should seriously get to a doctor or pharmacist. (it is the poison moving through your veins)
This is not to scare you, but spider bites can be serious!!
Just recently, we moved to a farm - so it's like camping all the time - dangerous for me.
So, inevitably I got bitten by a spider here on the farm, we weren't even away from home.
But this time, it was different - the blister was huge and scary!! Have you seen how a spider bite can eat away the skin tissue?
Do I know what spider it was? NO, that is even worse. How do you search for a remedy for a spider bite if you don't know what kind of spider it was?
You could see, all over the area where the spider was working, the first bite still had allot of poison in it, the second up to about the third the poison got less and less and then there are just some little red marks where he kept on biting but had no more poison left.
Ok, I get it, he felt trapped and wanted to warn me if I don't let him out, he will continue biting me until I let him out, but why did he climb up my jeans in the first place? My conclusion is when I was walking over the grass towards the washing he climbed up and got trapped - he wanted to get out and started biting. He knew when I started scratching, he would get out.
What I used to do for a spider bite
This advice is found everywhere, who originally thought of it, I don't know:
- Grate a bar of green sunlight soap (the old one you use to wash dishcloths with)
- Add some hot water (from the kettle) and make it into a paste
- Add some sugar and mix with the paste
- put it on a piece of gauze
- with plaster, put it over the bite
- This draws out the poison
I have an airtight container with this ready made mixture and as soon as I see a bite mark that doesn't look good, I put it on quickly.
Does it work? Yes
Why am I using something else? You did not see this bite mark and sadly, I got such a huge fright that I didn't even think of taking a picture.
What did I do this time for the spider bite
So this was more serious than the previous bites, and although I have tested the sunlight soap version of the spider bite remedy over and over again - enough for proof that it really works, I got some advice from my mom.
I took that advice, because I got such a fright that I felt the sunlight remedy will take too much time - this poison must get out. (And she was a nurse for 50 years - I guessed her advice would be valuable)
New remedy for a spider bite:
- Take Epsom salt and put it in a bowl
- add a little bit of water (to make it into kind of a paste)
- put it on a plaster
- and cover the spider bite
- Get to a doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible to get antibiotics
- Replace at least 3 times a day
Did this work? Yes, now that it looks better, I took a picture.
The Epsom salt drew out the poison. Every time I removed the plaster, you could see how the Epsom salt was working, I could see where it drew out the poison every time I replaced the plaster.
From now onward
I will always have Epsom salt in my house and take it with me when we go camping.
How do you know you have a spider bite?
If you want to know if you were bitten by a spider you can take a look at these pictures (WARNING: Not for the faint hearted)
Share this with all your friends (share buttons to your left) so that everybody can have Epsom salt handy - just in case. Rather safe than sorry and prevention is better than cure.
This is one easy way to teach homeschool art class
If you're anything like me, you can't draw a good stick figure, let alone draw beautiful pictures.
But, I must tell you, with this see the light shine art class, I've learned to draw some shadows and do shading.
I even drew a bird. Although my sizes were a bit out of proportion, my bird's head was just as big as the body, my bird did not look too bad
(I think ;-D)
You can check out 3 video lessons for free by clicking on the picture below, that way you don't spend any money yet and see if it works for you and your kids before you buy.
Teaching homeschool art class when you can't draw
Now if I can't draw, and know nothing about drawing (shading, lighting, etc), how am I able to teach my kids to draw?
With see the light shine it is super easy. They watch the videos and try it out for themselves.
We are visual characters by nature, that is why following videos is allot easier than following allot of words on a page and not remembering anything.
Art is a visual thing - it must be seen, felt (inside) and experienced, what better way than to do it through video.
Kids learn allot easier when they watch videos.
Big bonus, they can't fall behind, because if they don't understand, you can pause or go back - have you ever seen a teacher pause or rewind in class - NO!
Don't forget to share
Share this homeschool art class post with your friends, maybe they can learn to draw too.
