Advantages to Indemnity Health Insurance Plans (bare minerals make up)

Bare minerals make up

Indemnity health insurance plans are more regularly known as traditional health insurance plans. These health insurance plans can be costly but often cover most health problems that may arise, while other insurance plans exclude some illnesses or diseases from their coverage. Some disadvantages to indemnity plans are that they do not usually cover preventative health care like physicals, and traditional health insurance plans often cover only a percentage of your bill. Research the advantages and disadvantages to indemnity health insurance when you are considering health insurance options.

While the disadvantages may seem problematic, there are many advantages to indemnity health insurance plans. You may have a higher monthly premium and you may need to pay upfront costs and submit claims paperwork, but your deductible will be more manageable and your coverage will be wider. Some health insurance plans will not cover certain medical expenses or care, but indemnity plans often do.

Another benefit of indemnity health insurance plans that many people desire is the freedom to choose your own physician. While other health insurance plans offered by the insurance industry limit your choice of physicians and hospitals to a list of preferred providers, indemnity insurance will cover any physician or hospital. This benefit may seem unworthy of mention, but there has been more than one instance where a mother finds that her son or daughter's pediatrician is not in their preferred provider network and has to search for another pediatrician. This also means that you can see a specialist without having to consult with your primary care physician first.

Overall, indemnity health insurance plans also offer you the best emergency medical coverage in the industry. While preferred provider organizations (PPOs) or point-of-service (POS) plans limit the physician you can see to a list of network physicians and hospitals, the freedom of choosing any physician is nationwide with indemnity health insurance plans. This means that if you are traveling across the country and have an accident or a medical emergency, you can go to the nearest hospital or see the closest physician without worrying about the expense. There have been instances where hospitals or physicians will either refuse to treat patients or treat them only minimally because the hospital or physician is not inside the plan's preferred provider network - meaning that the patient's health insurance will only cover a small part of the expense and the patient is liable to pay the rest of the bill. This is a risky financial situation for the physician and/or hospital since patients are often unable to fully pay costly medical bills. With indemnity health insurance plans, this is almost never the case. Consider this and the other benefits of indemnity health insurance when choosing the plan that is right for you.

Which is the best skin care product? (bare minerals make up)

bare minerals make up

There is really nothing like a best skin care product. There really can’t be anything like ‘The best skin care product’, because skin care products work differently for different people (based on the skin type to some extent). A product that is the ‘best skin care product’ for one person might end up being the worst for another person. So, a more logical question to ask would be ‘What is the best skin care product for my type of skin?’. However, this still is not completely logical. We tend to segregate people into 4 groups based on their skin types – i.e. dry skin, oily skin, normal skin and sensitive skin. However, this classification is just too broad to be used definitively in determining the best skin care product. We can say ‘best skin care product for a dry skin’ or ‘best skin care product for an oily skin’ are better statements than just ‘best skin care product’. But really, that is what it is – ‘better’; still not accurate.

So, it really comes to rephrasing the question to – ‘What is the best skin care product for me’. Yes, this is exactly the question that you should be asking, and unfortunately there is no easy answer for this. Arriving at the best skin care product for self will need some effort on your part.

First of all, you need to understand how the skin care products work. This is simple. You can consider all skin care products to be composed of 2 types of ingredients – Active and inactive. The active ingredients are the ones that actually work on your skin. The inactive ones just help in delivering these active ingredients to your skin. Both the ingredients need to work for your skin, in order for the product to be effective (and move on to become the best skin care product for you).

Besides the ingredients, the way you apply your skin care products is equally important. In fact, this is even more important. If you do not know how to apply skin care products, you might forever be hunting for the best skin care product for yourself, when that has already passed you. Moreover, it’s also important to decide on the frequency of application (of the skin care product). The environmental factors - temperature, humidity and pollution level, also affect the selection of best skin care product. Here are a few rules that you could use to ensure that your best skin care product is really the best for you:
* Cleanse your skin before applying that best skin care product.
* Use a makeup remover instead of plain water and remove your makeup before going to bed.
* The effectiveness of active ingredients is reduced when applied over another product e.g. over moisturiser. So apply that best skin care product first and then apply a bit of moisturizer if needed.
* Apply the products on moist and warm skin.
* You will have to experiment with a few products before you arrive at the one that is the best skin care product for you.
* Do not exfoliate too much or too hard.
* Vary your skin care routine as per the seasons (winter/summer etc), changes in environmental factors and changes in your skin type

Note that the best skin care product cannot be determined overnight. It’s only through experiment (and awareness) that you can find the ‘Best skin care product’ (for you).

Why Muscles Get Sore

Muscles Get Sore. As people age, they begin to complain more of pains in their muscles and joints. They seem to stiffen up with age, and such commonplace activities as bending over for the morning paper can make them wince.

Such pain can grip so fiercely that they are sure it begins deep in their bones. But the real cause of stiffness and soreness lies not in the joints or bones, according to research at the Johns Hopkins Medical School, but in the muscles and connective tissues that move the joints.

The frictional resistance generated by the two rubbing surfaces of bones in the joints is negligible, even in joints damaged by arthritis.

Flexibility is the medical term used to describe the range of a joint’s motion from full movement in one direction to full movement in the other. The greater the range of movement, the more flexible the joint.

If you bend forward at the hips and touch your toes with your fingertips, you have good flexibility, or range of motion of the hip joints. But can you bend over easily with a minimal expenditure of energy and force? The exertion required to flex a joint is just as important as its range of possible motion.

Different factors limit the flexibility and ease of movement in different joints and muscles. In the elbow and knee, the bony structure itself sets a definite limit. In other joints, such as the ankle, hip, and back, the soft tissue—muscle and connective tissue—limit the motion range.

The problem of inflexible joints and muscles is similar to the difficulty of opening and closing a gate because of a rarely used and rusty hinge that has become balky.

Hence, if people do not regularly move their muscles and joints through their full ranges of motion, they lose some of their potential. That is why when these people will try to move a joint after a long period of inactivity, they feel pain, and that discourages further use

What happens next is that the muscles become shortened with prolonged disuse and produces spasms and cramps that can be irritating and extremely painful. The immobilization of muscles, as researchers have demonstrated with laboratory animals, brings about biochemical changes in the tissue.

However, other factors trigger sore muscles. Here are some of them:

1. Too much exercise

Have you always believed on the saying, “No pain, no gain?” If you do, then, it is not so surprising if you have already experienced sore muscles.

The problem with most people is that they exercise too much thinking that it is the fastest and the surest way to lose weight. Until they ache, they tend to ignore their muscles and connective tissue, even though they are what quite literally holds the body together.

2. Aging and inactivity

Connective tissue binds muscle to bone by tendons, binds bone to bone by ligaments, and covers and unites muscles with sheaths called fasciae. With age, the tendons, ligaments, and fasciae become less extensible. The tendons, with their densely packed fibers, are the most difficult to stretch. The easiest are the fasciae. But if they are not stretched to improve joint mobility, the fasciae shorten, placing undue pressure on the nerve pathways in the muscle fasciae. Many aches and pains are the result of nerve impulses traveling along these pressured pathways.

3. Immobility

Sore muscles or muscle pain can be excruciating, owing to the body’s reaction to a cramp or ache. In this reaction, called the splinting reflex, the body automatically immobilizes a sore muscle by making it contract. Thus, a sore muscle can set off a vicious cycle pain.

First, an unused muscle becomes sore from exercise or being held in an unusual position. The body then responds with the splinting reflex, shortening the connective tissue around the muscle. This cause more pain, and eventually the whole area is aching. One of the most common sites for this problem is the lower back.

4. Spasm theory

In the physiology laboratory at the University of Southern California, some people have set out to learn more about this cycle of pain.

Using some device, they measured electrical activity in the muscles. The researchers knew that normal, well-relaxed muscles produce no electrical activity, whereas, muscles that are not fully relaxed show considerable activity.

In one experiment, the researchers measured these electrical signals in the muscles of persons with athletic injuries, first with the muscle immobilized, and then, after the muscle had been stretched.

In almost every case, exercises that stretched or lengthened the muscle diminished electrical activity and relieved pain, either totally or partially.

These experiments led to the “spasm theory,” an explanation of the development and persistence of muscle pain in the absence of any obvious cause, such as traumatic injury.

According to this theory, a muscle that is overworked or used in a strange position becomes fatigued and as a result, sore muscles.

Hence, it is extremely important to know the limitations and capacity of the muscles in order to avoid sore muscles. This goes to show that there is no truth in the saying, “No pain, no gain.” What matters most is on how people stay fit by exercising regularly at a normal range than once rarely but on a rigid routine.

A Thing of Beauty is a Joy with Photoshop

by: Granny’s Mettle

Human nature always seems to have this predilection with beauty and what society believes is beautiful. When we are fat, we want to be slim or thin. When we have the so-called “love handles”, we decide we do not love them anymore, so we go to the gym and exercise until our tongues fall out from fatigue. We are blessed with dark colored skin, so we try all the new bleaching products available in the market to lighten our color. We have white skin so we go to tanning salons to get olive skin, and the out-in-the-sun color to your skin. We are naturally brunette but we go to the nearest salon to get our hair done and died to blonde because they said “blondes always have such fun”.

And digital technology is also banking on the partiality of people to not have fun with what the Lord has blessed them with originally.

I have been in the digital business for quite some time now, and what I regularly encounter are numerous questions on how to remove blemishes from photos so that their faces would look great and give that “fashion-magazine look” that the media is glamorizing so much nowadays. Here are a few suggestions then from a photographer on beauty retouching.

(Now, if I could just do it in real life, I would be a millionaire by now.)

Beauty Retouching with Photoshop

1 – Try to improve the colors on the face in your photo as far as you can go. To edit, it is better to do it in RGB rather than CMYK. With RGB, editing is more flexible and easy. And explore all the selections in the various feathers. Do not be afraid to experiment. After all, being creative is all about using all the choices available.

2 – After editing your color, it’s now time to create a new layer. This is also a tool for you to be able to control your work. Begin your retouch using a heeling brush and cloning stamp to remove the things you want removed. Start with the bigger imperfections and move your way to the littlest blemish. You could also use the heeling brush to remove the lines under the eyes to create that young look to the face.

3 - To adjust the size of any part of the face (e.g. big nose), adjust to your liking with the Liquify filter. Click the Filters menu and choose Liquify. This tool allows you to smudge, move, squish, and even distort your image according to your satisfaction. For best results and easy navigation, turn the grid on. This will let you view the changes you’ve made.

For increasing or reducing the size of the area, you can also use the Warp, although the Pucker and Bloat are most effective with this type of retouch. Remember to be careful and again, do not be afraid to experiment. Use the appropriate brush size and go slowly, moving bits at a time.

4 –To smoothen the skin, use the cloning stamp and carefully apply to the skin. The best would be to use multiple clicks rather than strokes to even out the skin tone. This is the part where you need to be patient. Be careful with your patterns and do not repeat. Also, try to be creative. Don’t worry if you make mistakes along the way. Just go back to the history palette everytime you create something you don’t like and start again.

5 – For overdoing the smoothing process, just use the history palette to restore the specific area. If this does not work, try to select and add the noise filter to simulate the texture of the skin.

Finally, after a little adjustments and a little nip and tuck here and there, you are ready to view your final image.

According to the photographer, beauty retouching needs patience and a lot of perseverance. Many methods are available, but there are only a few tricks to help others retouch their photos. Even for professionals, this job takes time to finish. However, with time, one can get faster.

A Beauty Salon Will Help You Look Your Best!

by: Mike Yeager

A beauty salon will help you look your very best with a price that will fit in almost any budget. A beauty salon will be able to make your hair, skin, toes, and fingernails look marvelous. In addition, most beauty salons offer their services for a fairly reasonable price. However, sometimes it may be difficult to choose what service you want. If that is the case, simply be on the lookout for any fashion style that you like. Look through magazines and cut out photos of styles and colors that you find pleasing. Take notes so that when you do go to a beauty salon, you will know exactly what you want. However, be aware that some beauty salons are better than others. To make sure that you are in high-quality beauty salon, check to see if it has clean beauty salon equipment and a clean work area. Also, be aware that in most states, beauty salons are required to publicly display their establishment license. If the salon or barbershop won’t show you an establishment license, you don’t know whether the shop’s health and safety procedures have been approved by the state.

Time saving Beauty Salon Tips.

A beauty salon visit can be time consuming. To get the most from your visit and still have time left in your day, try these time-trimming tips. Before you leave your beauty salon, schedule your next appointment. Call ahead on your appointment day to see if your stylist is running on time. If not, you won’t have to waste time sitting at the beauty salon when you could be home. If you want to be quickly in and out for your beauty salon appointment, try to schedule the first appointment for the day.

Good Makeup for Acne, Acne Scars - Accutane and Retin A Users

by Sandra A. Greenberg

People with acne have sensitive skin. People using Accutane and Retin A (tretinoin) have even more sensitive skin. I have been battling cystic acne since my teens. Trust me, I Know! I had my first dermabrasion when I was in my late twenties, and I have had several acne scar laser treatments since then. My dermatologist back in Connecticut is a big fan of Exuviance products. I started using the restorative cream when I was on Accutane the first time in the 1980's. Here I am 58 years old, and I am on it again. If you know acne, you know there is no cure for cystic acne. I am just so thankful that there is finally a treatment for cystic acne that I can benefit from. It was a number of years of silent suffering before Accutane was a solution for me since it has only been around since the early 1980's. There is no question that Accutane is not just the best acne medication for severe and cystic acne, but the only medication for severe and cystic acne. Now, let's get back on the subject of good make up. The restorative cream is meant for night time use, but my dermatologist, Dr. Barry Goldberg, Danbury, Ct. of Advanced Dermcare, suggested that I use it all the time. If you are a Retin-A user, or an Accutane user, or both, this product is an amazing moisturizer for that extra dryness that is an unpleasant side effect of both acne treatments.

The concealer is a bonus. It's not a miracle mask, but it tones down redness very nicely. Anyone with bad skin knows that less is better. The more stuff you pile on, the worse your skin looks. Because the concealer does not sit on top of your skin, it looks way better! Another option for "good makeup" is with the new mineral foundation that is so popular. I found that Raw Minerals Makeup worked best for me because of their colors. I have also used Bare Escentual Minerals Makeup and have found it very light and covers nicely as well. What is good about the mineral foundation is that it is light and not cakey, so it doesn't make your skin stand out when you really want to hide it.

Remember, less is better!

Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex 1.75 oz. Exuviance Concealing Treatment Makeup SPF 20 0.5 oz.

CoverBlend Multi-Function Concealer Spf 15 Beige 0.5oz

Raw Natural Beauty Active Mineral Foundation 0.07 oz

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation

I build niche websites and teach self defense to women. I choose my niche sites based on personal and professional experience, and a whole lot of research.


tells the emotional impact of cystic, the deeper scars of acne; the social emotional scars that lead to depression, anxiety,... low self esteem…..heartache.

Hot Tips For Makeup

The most important thing you must know is that your skin needs to be moisturized and smooth before applying any makeup. So moisturize, moisturize, moisturize, this is the most important step. If your skin is dry then your makeup will not go on evenly, and your face will look uneven and caked on. So make sure your skin has a lot of moisture.

Make-Up Application

Tinted Moisturizer: In lieu of foundation, blend a small amount of long-wearing, flesh-tinted gel or moisturizer evenly over your entire face. Unlike traditional foundation which has a heavier texture, tints and gels have no texture at all, yet give a lovely translucent glow to the skin. For dry and normal skin, NV Perricone makes a terrific tinted moisturizer.

Hot Lips

How To Apply Lipstick

The fundamental tools for a luscious pout are a moist base and a lip brush. “Dark colours like rich reds and purples should always be applied with a gorgeous brush to give a better line,” says make-up artist Dotti who offers these lip-enhancing tips:

Bare Minerals

By: Jennifer Bailey

Minerals are natural elements or compounds formed through geological processes in the earth’s crust. Minerals range from pure elements to simple salts or complex silicates. Minerals are basically inorganic, homogeneous solids with a crystal structure and a definite chemical composition. The chemical makeup is different for each mineral. Chemical tests and x-rays are needed to identify a mineral. Currently just over four thousand minerals are known to mankind. Minerals are being used in various walks of life – at work, in schools and homes. One such area is the cosmetic industry.

Elements and compounds are the building blocks of minerals. Minerals made up of only one element are called native minerals like silver, gold, mercury and copper. Minerals composed of compounds are simply referred to as minerals.

Mineralogy is the study of minerals. Bare minerals that are used to make cosmetics consist of cosmetic grade minerals and mineral pigments. Bare minerals are obtained from various sources like plants, plant sources and the earths crust. Bare minerals may include pure elements, simple salts or complex silicates. Minerals are made of elements like oxygen, silicon, aluminum, iron, calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium. Minerals are identified by their color, luster, transparency, hardness and florescence. They are also identified by their magnetism, odor, solubility and radioactivity. Minerals are classified as silicates, carbonates, sulphates, halides and oxides. They are also classified as sulphides, phosphates, organic and mineraloids, on the basis of their chemical composition.

The human body requires certain bare minerals like, potassium and magnesium, to function properly. They are needed for body functions like building strong bones, transmitting nerve signals and maintaining a normal heartbeat. They are also used to air hormone production in the body. One such area is the cosmetic industry. Bare minerals are used to make cosmetic products called mineral makeup. Cosmetics made out of bare minerals are called mineral makeup. These cosmetics contain no chemicals and are a popular natural option to traditional makeup.

Tips to Get Flawless Skin

by Peterhutch

Before you can find the right stuff to put on your skin, you must first determine its type. To do so, look at your bare face in a mirror in natural daylight (i.e., outside or near a window). In general: Oily skin is shiny -- especially along the T-zone, where oil glands are most prevalent -- and tends to break out. Large pores may also indicate oiliness. Dry skin feels tight and dehydrated. It may also look flaky, red and rough. Normal skin has a uniform texture and tone. Combination skin has oily and dry patches: It may be shiny/blemished along the T-zone and scaly around the periphery.

The best get-flawless-skin regimen? It's not a trendy spa treatment. It's a way of eating. Yeah, yeah, we know that for years, experts said greasy foods and chocolate don't cause pimples and that, overall, what you eat has no effect on your skin. But new research proves otherwise. So follow these rules on how to feed your face.

Apply concealer. The first step to creating flawless skin is to apply concealer to any trouble spots. For blemishes, dab medicated concealer on the blemish and tap lightly with your fingertips to blend the colour. For under eye circles, dot the concealer just underneath the dark spots and blend upwards with your fingertips or brush using a light touch. If you choose not to use a medicated concealer for blemishes, make sure the formula is at least dermatologist tested.

The foundation of flawless skin. It takes beauty and benefit to create flawless skin, and Flawless Skin Invest in a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and facial scrub suited to your skin type. You might have to test out a couple of brands before you find the perfect one. Talk to an associate at a make up counter or stand alone make up store. You will be able to test different formulas. They may even offer samples so you can try a product out for a day or two.

Wash your face twice daily with soap and water or any face wash you may have. Avoid touching any acne. Touching it will just cause it to get irritated and get more red and grow in size. If you need an overnight fix, you can try tooth paste.

Your skin can be nurtured by eating foods such as fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts and fish. Also, drinking lots of water daily helps to remove toxins from our body and promotes natural, healthy skin care. Supplements too are an aid to skin care and general well-being, giving us essential minerals that our every day food could lack.

Cleaning the skin is an essential part of curing pimples and the cleaning needs special care when you need to cure pimples overnight. If you wash your face with a soap enriched with aloe vera it can help you immensely. You could also try cleaning your skin with apple cider vinegar, or a more simple remedy would be to clean it with lemon juice.

Eye bags - Try a two-pronged approach: Using a cosmetic sponge or foundation brush, apply your everyday concealer under the eye bag, and one that is a ade deeper on top. This will optically level out your skin's topography.

Looking Good with Bare Minerals Makeup

By Morgan Hamilton

In our modern day and age, becoming more beautiful has become a very important pursuit. You can now see some new and improved cosmetics line, or miracle cream everywhere you turn. Our society has many people who are obsessed with the way they look. I find it sad that the human image has almost surpassed the importance of the human intellect in our present society.

Now, I’m not against the practice of taking good care of the way we look. I’m just trying to say that we should also give attention to the care of our mind. Anyway, maintaining an appealing appearance is important because so much can depend on it. Anything from a job interview, to relationships with the opposite sex, to how others treat you on the street depends on how you look.

Women wear makeup as part of maintaining a pleasing appearance. Wearing makeup gives them a wonderful feeling of security and confidence in their beauty. Of course, it is important that they find the right makeup. If you are trying to find your ideal blush and powder, then you should give Bare Minerals makeup a try.

There is a good chance that you have heard of Bare Minerals makeup because this cosmetic line has been around for some years now. These products are typically found in many drug or superstores. These products run a great deal cheaper than most high-end cosmetic lines and get the job done just as well.

The presence of makeup girls are the only aspect that I can never fathom about cosmetic lines. You can usually see them standing with a big cheesy grin on their face, just waiting for you to approach their counter. I've always found it humorous, yet odd that they often wear too much makeup.

My wife explained that they cake it on in order to show off what they sell. I’m not sure that I agree with this because most men are looking for a lady that looks great with little to no makeup. My wife always uses a combination of Bare Minerals makeup and Lancome skin care products. Since her complexion was always flawless, this seemed to work ideally for her. I still appreciate the fact that she doesn't cake on the foundation and powder when she uses Bare Mineral makeup.

Do you want to purchase Bare Minerals makeup? It can be difficult to find ideal cosmetics that actually work like they're supposed to these days. You can surely find products that can work wonders for our appearance by hoping online and checking out all that Bare Minerals makeup has to offer right now!

Mineral Makeup Tips

By Endy Wong

Do you use any mineral makeup? What brand do you like the best and why? OK, let's talking mainly about the foundation powders.

Mary Kay loose powder. Ive been used it. It supposed to be better for the skin. (I have very sensitive skin.) When I put it on, my face started itching a little, but it went away after 5 minutes or so. It's possibly because of the brush I used Or the minerals. Also, my face felt stiff, like it was too dry.

Burts Bees Concealer. Its ingredients are castor oil, sunflower oil, beeswax, vitamin E, candelila wax, cucumber extract,rosemary extract, and minerals for the color. It is a cream. You could dot it where you need it.

Everyday Minerals. It covers great and last almost the whole day and not itch at all. The BE would cause to itch a little, only for like 15 seconds. The everyday minerals don't itch at all. They do not have talc. They have different formulations (matte, semi-matte, intense etc), They really kill the shine on my oily skin, and the best part, you could get more product than with BE at a fraction of the price ($8 for the smaller container of foundation which costs $25 for BE. The larger container is $12).

Bare Naturals. It is every bit as good as the Bare Minerals brand and alot cheaper. As far as mineral makeup, it is so fast and easy to use which makes my morning makeup routine better. Also, it doesn't feel greasy or pasty on your skin.

Ada Cosmetics Mineral Makeup. It could makes the skin look beautiful and it's so light that you even would not feel it.

Compare to Bare Minerals and Sheer Cover, it wouldn't been looked awful on your skin, or made you look ashy as if you were going to be buried in a casket or something. :(

The idea behind mineral makeup is that its supposed to be 'pure' and good for your skin. But unfortuantely some companies that produce mineral makeup add talc, bismuth or 'fillers' to make the minerals go further. Your mineral makeup should only have a few ingredients. Like Mica, oxides, and sometimes kaoline.

A really neat little trick I learned is that if you mix your minerals with a little bit of your moisturizer, you can make a nice cream foundation for anyone with dry skin who dont like the 'look' of the loose minerals. Another thing Ive learned is to buff like crazy. I read somewhere that its sort of like how most guys will buff and buff and BUFF the wax on a car to get that perfect polished finish. Also apply the minerals lightly, you can go back and add more if you need to. It doesnt take much with minerals

Mineral Makeup Advantages

By Mike Jeromez

There are many advantages to using mineral makeup. Found out why you should use bare minerals makeup!

Reason 1: Low Moisture
One of the biggest advantages of using bare minerals makeup is that because mineral makeup contains no moisture it will not allow bacteria to form and multiply. Mineral makeup is made up entirely of dry minerals in a powder form. You may have noticed that regular makeup has an expiration date on it. Can you guess why? It's because standard makeup is made with oils and other liquids that are full of moisture and are practically a breeding ground for bacteria. Mineral makeup obviously does not have this problem. There is also another benefit of the lack of moisture in mineral makeup... it will last much longer! You see, when you sweat or oil from your skin comes into contact with traditional makeup, it increases the moisture that's already in the makeup and causes it to pretty much drip off of your face. Mineral makeup on the other hand, does not have this problem. Because it is a dry powder, it is able to safely absorb this extra moisture and will last all day long!
