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.

This is how Appraisal Works

Big Boss: This year your performance was good, excellent and outstanding. So, your rating is "average".

Kumar: What? How come 'average'?

Big Boss: Because...err...uhh...you lack domain knowledge.

Kumar: But last year you said I am a domain expert and you put me in this project as a domain consultant.

Big Boss: Oh is it? Well, in that case, I think your domain knowledge has eroded this year.

Kumar: What???

Big Boss: Yes, I didn't see you sharing knowledge on Purchasing continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Wednesday, October 01st, 2014

You might want to straighten up the house this morning since there is a possibility of some unexpected visitors dropping by. You may even end up serving lunch or dinner to a group of ten! Instead of panicking, just take a deep breath and organise yourself. If the cooking is too difficult, just place a call to a good restaurant and order something.

Romance and marriage are very much on your mind today. A special encounter with a possible love partner could have you hankering for happily ever after. Books on attracting and maintaining relationships might be especially appealing as well as useful. Take care not to put too much stock in detailed analyses, however. Remember that such books are based on generalities. You’re unique.

Today can bring a case of mutual admiration. An active and direct energy supports making plans and stepping up. You have much you can teach others. Look new possibilities that encourage you to break up the usual routines. Make progress on any outstanding job, especially around the house or garden.

Love is in the air today as cupid has his arrow aimed at you! Single people are likely to meet their soul mate today while couples can definitely expect a new fire in their relationships. So take a day off work and look around…you may meet your ‘the one’!

You may be scheming behind the scenes to get your way. Just focusing on your own needs can be a mistake. Make sure your choices aren’t manipulative. You may be defensive and unwilling to talk about your thoughts. Focus on achieving the greatest good for all. You’re difficult to stop when you know what you want.

The greatest satisfaction today will come when using your energy to solve a complicated problem. Keeping a cool attitude and focusing on specific issues is better than being driven by strong emotions. Other people’s attitudes can seem unreasonable or unnecessary. You can keep your own agenda on the right track.

Romance intensifies as communication is enhanced by the energy, enthusiasm, and focus of you and your partner. If you aren’t already involved, you might meet someone new and exciting who shares your interests, and perhaps doesn’t live all that far away. Expect to make a lot of short trips in your neighbourhood, perhaps visiting friends or neighbours. If you’ve been thinking of moving, you might do a little house hunting.

This is a day for fun, drama, and celebration. Even if you have a long list of responsibilities, be open to making life more colourful and enjoyable. You may startle your family with what seems like a sudden or unexpected move. Investigate thoroughly any proposed purchase or major change.

You are an excellent friend, and you take pride in helping the people around you. You know this and receive this with open arms who come searching for honest advice. Because of these attributes, you may be thinking about getting involved in a humanitarian cause or giving a few hours of your time every week to your local community. Such activities could become a real part of your life. It’s time to use all of your great ideas to help others.
