The Truth About Collagen and Elastin Products

When it comes to skin care, it seems there is always a new “miracle product” out there that makes the promise of perfect skin, but can you trust them? There are so many choices and many of them make empty promises and do nothing but waste your time and often a lot of your money. When it comes to minimizing the effects of aging on your skin, collagen and elastin producing products are the real deal and can actually change your skin’s appearance for the better (and do it fast!). First, let’s take a look at what happens to aging skin. When you are in your teens and twenties, your body makes plenty of the proteins collagen and elastin which are responsible for keeping your skin plump and elastic. That’s why you didn’t have any wrinkles in college and why you don’t notice your neck sagging just a bit until you are in your thirties and forties. Your skin naturally produced collagen and elastin in abundant supply and all you had to do was keep it clean and hydrated and protect it from the sun. Then, age takes over, and coupled with environmental factors like smoking, poor hydration or diet and sun exposure, your skin starts to show its age. With collagen and elastin production on the decline, your skin is not as able to regenerate itself and keep itself looking fresh and youthful. You need to find some collagen and elastin products that will help your skin regain that look and repair itself. Now, some products claim to contain these two proteins, but you can slather all of...

Cheap Treadmills For Sale, What Does it All Mean?

Buying a treadmill for home is a great idea so why not take a look to see where there are some cheap treadmills for sale? You could try online, or your local paper. There are so many different types of treadmill that it can be quite daunting to go out and buy one for yourself. It is often easy to look at the one you use at the gym and go for a similar treadmill but this can be very costly. Here is a breakdown of what a treadmill can do and what all of those fiddly buttons are actually for. – Incline This is quite an easy one. The idea is that walking up hills makes your muscles more toned and works them harder. If you are looking for leaner thighs and calves then an incline option is essential. If you are looking for mainly cardiovascular workouts then an incline option is not so important. The incline button will raise the front or rear of the platform creating an upward or downward hill for you to walk on. – Heart monitor Depending on the make, your heart rate can be determined by either a monitor attached to you or the grip sensors on the machine. Cheap treadmills will not have a heart rate monitor.

The Right Home Theater Design

A home theater is a great investment for people who are particular with the quality of their entertainment. There are many different home theater design choices which are dependent on the size of the room that one will be turning into a home theater. Other factors that may affect the home theater design are the preferences of the owner, the kind of entertainment system the owner has and the degree of entertaining the owner has in mind. Size of the Room The size of the room has an impact on the concept of the home theater room design. A small room greatly affects the kind of home theater design one may have in mind. The size of the room should correspond to the size of the television set one has. An overly large television set is not appropriate for a small room as this may affect viewing pleasure. The distance between the television set of about 40 inches and the viewer should be a minimum of about ten feet. Any closer than that may mean trouble for the person’s eyes. With this limitation, the room should not be less than fifteen feet either side to comfortably accommodate a pleasant home theater design concept. Location of the Television Set and Others Where the television set is placed is also a crucial aspect of home theater design. The television set should not be located on the same wall as a nearby door. The opening and closing of the door, especially if this is a well used door, will disturb the viewers from their entertainment. Emergency doors may be taken into consideration...

Time Management – Practice Makes Productivity

Whether you are a student or professor, an employee or employer, it seems there aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything you wanted. Then there are those days where you have labored for hours, only to find that you haven’t completed all that much. As we ponder these issues, we realize that it is neither the hours available nor the number of tasks completed that really figure in what we have truly accomplished, but it is our inability to manage both time and tasks together that result in limited productivity. Time management is not about having the mindset or ability to just spend our time doing ‘work,’ but rather it is the process in which we are able to work – and work effectively and efficiently – within the time available. If productivity is the objective of our endeavors, we can reasonably discern that distractions, time wasted on non-essential activities, and procrastination are all enemies of that purpose. And to defeat those ‘enemies,’ we must arm ourselves with certain key elements of time management: eliminating distractions, proper classification of responsibilities, and prioritization of our time. Distractions come in all shapes and sizes; these can be as simple as the “you’ve got mail” popup on our email software, phone calls, and even the friendly chat with colleagues. Combating those diversions aren’t always as easy, so utilize available tools to facilitate your efforts in remaining productive. E-mail and the web have made the top of the time-wasting distractions list (“The Time We Waste,” 2007, Para 3) against which various deterrents are used, ranging from computer monitoring software to the...
