Life should always be a celebration, especially when you look and feel good. Unsightly and undeserved marks or spots on your skin hinder those wonderful feelings you should be experiencing. No matter what age you are, blemishes or sudden breakouts can really ruin a day. Super charge your self-confidence by not only eating fresh, whole foods, but also by treating your skin to gifts from Mother Nature.

eminence scar creamThe products you put on your face and body are no different than the substances you eat. You wouldn’t enjoy munching on hazardous chemicals, so why soak your skin with synthetic ingredients that trigger those breakouts! Promises of clear skin from medication formulas or skin care preparations aren’t fulfilled when those commercial brands contain harmful additives, preservatives and fragrances. Yes, even many acne medications include chemicals that only temporarily relieve your skin problems. They dry your skin tissue excessively, so your skin cells can’t regenerate properly or naturally. Hence, the unexpected blemishes pop up.

Healthy, organic food goes hand in hand with genuine organic skin care. Enhance your appearance naturally, boost your self-confidence and celebrate the day . . . Read more

All You Need is Work

“If you make it difficult to do business, there’s not going to be any business.”
– Rick Harrison, co-star of “Pawn Stars” on History Channel.

Polices for climate change, illegal immigration reform and blah-blah-blah. Enough! What people want now are jobs, a “three-letter word,” according to Joe Biden. We’ve been hearing positive and negative reports on the economy and employment for five years. The bottom line: the economy is in horrible shape. Anyone who can remember the way things were just 10 years ago can figure that out.

Government doesn’t create jobs. It only hinders the process. Besides, the government is too busy snooping into your lives. Leave business alone and let it thrive. Businesses create jobs. When was the last time you were hired by a politician? Politicians are as rich as rich people. But rich people employ you and expand their businesses to create more jobs.

I am tired of rich Washington snobs, who get rich from my and your earned income, telling me how to live my life. We are going through what many Americans went through in the 1930s and it is totally unnecessary. Leave us alone. We can do a better job at creating and getting jobs.

Yes, I know you have concerns about other issues. The best way to tackle those concerns and worries is to control your own destiny. And that can only be achieved by getting government out of the way. Enough! How many more bad policies are you willing to accept from Washington? Get off our backs. Laissez faire!

You might choose to exercise during the hot days of summer. Keeping bottled water on hand helps, but also take along some fruit if you can. It will take care of your appetite as well.
Water remains the best choice for hydration, especially when you exercise. Fruit comes in a close second and provides your body with plenty of hydration. Keep fruit slices available in your refrigerator or fresh fruit in a bowl on the counter…Read More
