5 Cosmetic Surgery Trends to Dominate in 2017

Cosmetic surgeries have certainly come a long way over the past few years. With the technological advancements which we have today, there seems to be treatments and procedures to remove even the smallest blemishes on our bodies. It’s expected that by 2020, plastic surgery will be the biggest emerging market. This is perhaps due to the fact that people want to look good and are increasingly becoming concerned about how they’re viewed by other people in the society. There’s nothing wrong with good looks which will make you feel more confident. Below are some of the biggest trends in 2017:

1. Total body fat grafting
If you are looking for fuller buttocks, face, breasts, or any other parts of your body, look no further. One of the latest cosmetic trends is fat transfers. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will first examine the body of the patient for areas of optimum fat cells to harvest. The surgeon will then use tumescent liposuction to extract the fat cells, which are then purified.

The fat cells will then be transplanted back into the specific problematic areas. The fat is then shaped perfectly into the patient’s desired contours. Fat grafting has a high level of safety, due to the fact that it only involves the relocation of a patient’s own fat to different parts of his/her body. As a result, no “foreign objects” are introduced. You can get more information more about the current state of fat grafting on this web page. FULL POST

Engage in Healthy Behaviors by the True Source of Spiritual Power

You may know well the verse that indicates your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?….” 1 Corinthians 6:19

The truth and reality of this verse may be motivation for you to care for your body by making healthy choices.

It’s likely that you desire for these behaviors to be a part of your lifestyle.

6 Body Movements To Help Relieve Neck And Shoulder Tension

Yes, we know that extra 5 minutes of sleep is something we all crave for, but it is high time that we provide a productive start to our day. And what could be a better way to do this than to involve yourself in a few exercises which aim to release tension from your neck and shoulders.

We all have experienced those days with tight and heavy shoulders and neck that could be an immediate effect against our bad postures. Well, a few simple neck and shoulder pain exercises and stretches at the start of the day could be a wonderful remedy. Let’s find out, how.

1) Upward stretch

Start your day with an upward stretch exercise. It is a far better way to wake up your body and feel fresh throughout the day. It also allows the blood to flow across the body, helping in a smoother blood transmission. Lastly, it straightens the neck and releases the pressure points.

What do you have to do? Put your hands together and bring them above your head with the palms facing upward. Hold this position for some time. Thereafter, stretch your spine and you will be able to feel the ribcage tighten up and relax. You can keep this position for about 10 minutes and then try to include a sideways stretch in order to exercise your torso as well. FULL POST

9 Best Anti Aging Natural Remedies and Skin Care Secrets

Way before beauty became a highly commercialized staple, the women and men of the world have been obsessed with eternal youth and beauty that never fades. Unfortunately, humankind’s preoccupation with science has driven most of these traditions to oblivion, although very little is understood about them, much to our disadvantage.

Albert Einstein once said that, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”. The recent movement of skin and personal care is shifting to what’s naturally found in nature, and all of a sudden, the synthetic ingredients have become less favored.

Natural tips for breathtaking, beautiful skin.

These days, it is no longer a secret that several natural sources contain a natural substance that causes anti-aging effects. Revealed below are 9 of these natural remedies for a youthful complexion that won’t cost you a fortune: FULL POST

How Are You Trying to Meet Your Deepest Needs?

The account of the woman at the well in John 4 is a beautiful story of how Jesus desires to meet our deepest needs. (Now, if you’re a man, don’t stop here because this story is about a woman. It applies to all of us!)

If we are not allowing Jesus to meet our deepest needs on an ongoing basis, then we are like the lady at the well.

Are you an emotional eater? Do you often drink alcohol to soothe a deep emotion? Maybe you spend endless hours watching television or surfing the internet. Maybe you exercise excessively. Do you have a habit of shopping for clothes even though you don’t really need them? Are you in and out of illicit relationships? Maybe it’s something else that you do to feel ‘satisfied’ or to meet the deep, deep need you have to be in a relationship with your Creator.

The woman at the well in John 4 symbolizes a person who attempts to meet a deep spiritual need in ways other than how God can meet them. She goes to a well to draw water but at a deeper lever she has a need for a touch from Jesus. So, the water represents our food, illicit sex, drinking, shopping, gaming, etc. These and other behaviors we engage in, can be our attempt to meet a need that is really a spiritual need, deep inside. Until the woman meets Jesus, and he makes her need clear to her, she may have been unaware of her spiritual need in a conscious sense. FULL POST
