B Healthy: How to kiss Winter's dry skin goodbye

B Healthy

During the winter months it's cold, the weatheris nasty, colds and flu's wreck havoc, and people suffer from dry skin. No one wants itchy, dry, chapped skin. So many people try everything to get rid of it but it seems like there is no hope but here is a few tips on how to give your skin some relief.
  • Use a humidifier. During the winter, the inside of your house becomes hot and dry because of the heat. This hot and dry air then makes your skin dry. A humidifier helps bring moisture into the air and circulate the air to relieve you from some of the dryness.
  • Cut down hot showers and baths. Everyone likes taking a hot shower or bath to relax but prolonged exposure to hot water strips the skin of essential vitamins and minerals needed to maintain moisture. Also after your shower or bath, pat your skin dry instead of rubbing it, this leaves small droplets on the skin that makes it easier for moisture to be absorbed into the skin.
  • Moisturize. Your moisturizer is vital during this time. There are many brands that you can choose from located in our very own Mocha Beauti Shop such as Ary's Natural Whipped Body Butter or Juara Candlenut Body Creme but when all else fails simple petroleum jelly will work.
  • The last tip and maybe a very important was is to DRINK LOTS OF WATER, if your body is well hydrated your skin would be too.

Men Are Not the Enemy

Often after a break up women adopt negative feelings about the opposite sex. We swear off the entire male population and proudly boast to our closest girls 'I'm never doing this again, I am done with men!" As much as this temporary exclaimation soothes our disposition, surely we don't mean it.

Yes,yes men can be thoughtless, insensitive,inconsiderate, egotistical, selfish,unfaithful,disrespectful down right jerks!!!! I agree. However,that is not a fair or true statement for ALL men. There are honest,loyal, respectful, sensitive,caring positive men in this world. Both genders bear positives and negatives in respect to relationships and let's be real, none of us are perfect.

Instead of blaming the man, how about examining ourselves. Are we truly ready for the kind of relationship we say we want? How well do we relate to ourselves? Do you love yourself enough for somebody to love you? Are we chosing the right man or the right now man?

I've had my share of break ups, but ultimately, being able to decipher who I am, what I need and what I'm prepared to give, allows me to make healthy decisions in my relationships.

These are questions we need to ask ourselves even if we fear the answers. Instead of condemning men, we should be condemning the confinements that shackle our conscious thoughts and values keeping us from loving ourselves truly and freely as we deserve.

B Inspired by Minister Yvette Pressley - Fall Forward

With this falling economy, many find their faith has fallen, trust has fallen and motivation has fallen. We fall away, fall out, fall off, fall back and fall in - into depression, into discouragement and disgust. Often times, it is hard to make a comeback. Our Higher Power gives us an assurance that if we place our trust in Him, He is able to keep us from falling. But if you fall – fall forward. The song writer wrote, “We Fall Down but We Get Up.” You may not always make the mark. What’s more important is how you recover. Own up to your mistakes. Stay connected to the one who has the blueprint for your life. Devise a new plan and move forward. Keep believing. Keep the faith and continue to work. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you.
Fall Forward.

Cross My Heart and Hope to Die.... Is it ever okay to tell a secret?

Is it ever okay to share a secret? That was the topic of discussion this past weekend at a friend’s dinner party. 

The resounding answer was YES. Here were some of the comments:
  • As long as it’s in a different circle.
  • It depends on the situation.        
  • It wasn’t really a secret if you told someone.
  • If it’s a detriment to someone safety.
  • If it has anything with safety and concern of children.
  • If the secret can be used as a learning tool.
What’s your take?
