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.

Your Fortune For Today
Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Your best success today will be close to home. If you have an intimate and important conversation pending with a close person, today is the day to do it. If some issues are bothering you, especially with a loved one, then it’s a good time to start communicating. On other fronts, some situations that have seemed uncertain will begin to gradually clarify.

Expected calls or deliveries may prove more trouble than they’re worth. You could get involved in endless games of phone tag, and deliveries might come when you’re out. This can be avoided if you’re prepared. Make sure everyone knows what you’re expecting so they can watch for it. Tell people the best times to phone and be available at those times. Don’t worry. You’ll manage.

You may prefer to avoid arguments, but sometimes it is best to stand your ground. If you must fight, resolve to maintain control. Refuse to be childish, abusive or immature. You have legitimate feelings and are entitled to talk about them in a reasonable way. Keep a sense of humour, if possible!

Ideas for creative, artistic, or service-oriented work might be coming thick and fast, although you could be torn between different possibilities. All your ideas seem workable, yet you feel you should settle on one for the moment. It might be a good idea to ask the advice of others. Even if you don’t do exactly what they suggest, the advice might show you new options. Hang in there.

You can advance yourself through a practical and discerning approach. The energy today favors travel or any new adventure. Think twice if you feel you are falling in love. It could be your imagination working overtime. Be sure the other person feels as strongly as you. Think seriously about your financial future.

OK, up and at ‘em! You might feel like you’re walking through sand today, but you really need to shake your booty and get the blood flowing. If you don’t get up and do something, you’ll be a slug all day. You need to clear your head and cast off that bloated feeling. Most importantly, you want to get a good start to the day so you can accomplish everything that awaits you.

You might be a bit confused with the mood of the day which fosters quick action and a sporadic approach to things. More than likely, this approach isn’t exactly in line with your usual methodical protocol. Do what you can to merge with this energy in order to add a more spontaneous spark to your daily routine.

This is a day to slow down for some much-needed rest. You’ll find there is actually plenty of time for a bit of personal pampering amid life’s responsibilities. This need not mean spending money beyond your means. Simple pleasures are the best source of real satisfaction.

Sports and physical fitness activities should be an important part of your regular schedule. Even if this means a regular walk, think about adding some activity to your daily schedule. Later you may discover a new appreciation for people in your family, including the obligations and support they bring.
