Tips for Our Safety

Looking at our society today, we could really see the mere difference as to what it was before when talking about safety. Right now, we are facing a dilemma of various crimes that are unfortunately increasing in rate and that victims have also continue to rise in number. Sad to say, but the fact is most of our children, elders and women are the ones who are frequently the victims of such cruel incidents.

Many have been taking advantage of their vulnerability and made them as the primary targets of crimes. We often hear in radios, or see televisions. and the internet such cases of killings, robberies, rapes and other abuses. It is just so depressing to know that there are people who do not have souls.

This is now the perfect time to make a move in order to address such major concern. Of course, we do not want to be the next victims and fall into their baits. We should therefore begin to do something for our own safety. Taking part to some self-defense classes is a good option. In here, we could learn a lot of things that can be used to protect our selves from potential threat and danger. Gone are the days that we are so helpless and that all we could do is only to shout for help.

The basic thing that we can learn in these classes is on making use of whatever we have on hand. Canes, umbrellas and even keys are good examples that can somehow help us in possible attacks. We may be in doubt or in surprise, but yes, these are already self-defense tools when threatening situation arises. These things can be used to hit an attacker in his vital body parts, his eyes for instance. This act can already cause serious damage to the suspect. We are protected immediately with just the things that we carry along in our day-to-day life.

Moreover, using such techniques requires also an important factor for it to be that effective and useful. We should be able to identify the weak points of the attacker for us to know where to strike him. We must remember parts such as the eyes, nose, throat, and the groin. Hitting these would surely injure an attacker.

Breast Augmentation Gone Bad

Breast augmentation remains to be one of the most sought after procedures in the market, as it gives clients who choose to undergo the procedure a boost of confidence and an improved physique. However no matter how much success and popularity this procedure gathered, it still has inherent risks for complications. There remains to be that chance of something going wrong. How do you determine if something is indeed not quite right? Here are ten ways to determine if your breast augmentation result has gone bad.

1. When you feel tightening on your chest area, specifically from your implants, this can be a sign of a capsular contracture. This is when a scar tissue develops around the implant putting some pressure on it which results to hardening of the breasts.

2. Sometimes implant deflation can also occur it could be due to external factors which cause the implants to rupture or leak. When this happens you will notice your breasts becoming asymmetrical. A reaction from deflated saline implants is less likely to occur since the fluid has the same osmolarity with that of our body fluids. However, if you had a silicone implant on, you should immediately notify your surgeon because this can cause untoward reactions such as capsular contractures as an inflammatory response to the foreign substance.

3. If you are experiencing chills, increased temperature, pain, redness and swelling specifically on the site of the implants, this could be a sign that you are having an infection. For this case, immediately report this to your surgeon to get immediate help before it progress into something more serious such as sepsis.

Beauty Tips For Natural Looking Eyes

Eyelash extensions can draw prominence to your eyes and make them look beautiful. There are basically two types of eyelash extensions available. The first and more preferable kind is the individual eyelash extension. In this type, both thick as well as fine hairs are used for extending the lash. The other kind of extension comprises of 3 to 5 strands knotted together, known as flares. Although flares can offer more density to the lashes, they quite often look artificial and feel uncomfortable to wear.

Individual eyelash extensions provide the most authentic and natural look. They are laid one at a time on each individual lash, making it a very time consuming process. The extension lash is glued to your natural lash one by one, and each session can last for about two hours. If maintained well, the extension lash would stay on your natural lash until for own lash falls off eventually. The false lash weighs a little more than your natural lash and so it might add some stress to it.

The thinner variety of false lashes looks more authentic and is obviously lighter in weight than the thicker ones. When you lay about 40 lashes over each eye, you would get a thick and full line of natural-looking lashes. You can mix and match thick and thin lashes to maintain a balance between thickness and weight.

Flares are not as good as individual lashes. They do not look as natural and can often cause damage to your own lashes. Since flares are made of a few strands knotted together, they can have a stiff, doll-like look. It might take quite a while for you to get used to wearing flares on your lashes. They also weigh more and are less comfortable to wear than individual lashes. Flares have a tendency to yank out your natural lashes over time. So if you have a very sparse line of lashes, you could lose them all eventually if the flares pull them all out.
