How to Get Fair Skin

Although a whole lot of us believe that fairer skin is the criteria of becoming a good looking person, it is nothing but a misconception, and a colonial hangover from pre-British days. Modern definition of beauty has proved that skin tone has nothing to do with looking good, but a good and glowing complexion is definitely a plus to your personality.

Commercial products, such as fairness creams and lotions, often contain mercury, which helps in temporary reduction of the melanin, a chemical that darkens the skin. But long term of use these creams and lotions can result in mercury-poisoning with severe health hazards.

Who's the Boss?

A man goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The shop owner points to three identical looking parrots on a perch and says:

"The parrot to the left costs 500 dollars".

"Why does the parrot cost so much?" the customer asks.

The owner says, "Well, it knows how to use a computer."

The customer asks about the next parrot and is told "That one costs 1,000 dollars because it can do everything the other parrot can do plus it knows how to continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Saturday, October 25th, 2014

You may feel particularly in the mood to play pranks today as the inner clown in you takes hold. However, make sure that your practical jokes are in good taste or you may end up in someone’s bad books.

Today the surrounding energy will be trying to teach you something, specifically, how to share with others. But first you must get to a place where you truly want to share something of yourself. Have you examined your tendency to run away? You seem to be afraid that they’ll overwhelm you or that you’ll owe them something. This isn’t the case. Why not give other people a chance to get to know you?

Are you getting hit with obstacles lately? Could it be that you simply need to allot yourself more time to complete the monumental tasks you take on? This might be difficult for you to tolerate. You don’t know how to deal with times like these when you must continue doing the same thing over and over until you get results. There’s a lesson here for you. Remember that patience is a virtue.

Today is no time for dreaming! It’s actually quite the contrary. You can expect to have to settle a number of minor technical problems involving communications or transmissions. On the whole, it will be a somewhat trying day, but at least your mind will be occupied, leaving no room for the difficult internal questions that have been bothering you so much lately.

Do your best to relax more even if you have to work. This will help keep things in perspective. You may be in the grip of an idea you can’t shake. This can be memories of the past. You will feel better if you express your feelings through creative outlets.

Stress could take a toll on you today. You might temporarily lose your ambition and be left wondering if it’s all really worth it. This isn’t a good day to start projects or engage in important discussions. Stay home and get some rest if you can. Treat yourself to a good book and some ice cream.

This is a powerful day to examine your habits. Stress often comes from having too much on your plate. Take steps to make your home, mind, body, and spirit as simple and natural as possible. Use less technology, limit unnecessary commitments, and make your world more peaceful, quiet, and beautiful.

Like playing a game of chess, you may need to think through your next move carefully. It could be that your opponent is taking a long time to make the next move and you’re impatient. As a result, you may make your decision too hastily. Feel free to take as much time as you need. Your opponent may be thinking two or three moves ahead of you already, so concentrate.

Today’s energy will be making you think only about your relationships. It isn’t easy to have relationships with others, as you may have noticed. The respective demands of each one in a relationship can be difficult to understand. Moreover, the demands of others can obscure your path or cause you to detour from it. Consider that the less we ask for in a relationship, the more flexible and deeper it becomes!
