Powerful Summer Skin Hydration Combo

Spring has sprung, which means it is almost time to celebrate summer. Weekend getaways, summer barbecues, and beach parties. None of this is easy on your skin. While you may love the look of your deeply tanned skin, the effects of the sun can make your skin feel like stale toast. To combat these effects, your skin needs more than hydrating on the inside. Provide your skins some extra love with this powerful summer skin hydration combo and keep your skin hydrated!

Pure Squalane 100% Serum Oil

The first in the skin hydration combo is 100 squalane oil. Squalane naturally occurs in human sebum. Sebum is incredibly important to your skin as it is one of the many lipids that is produced by the human body to lubricate and protect the skin.

Squalane is used in skin care products as a natural antioxidant and emollient. As an emollient, Squalane locks moisture into the skin, eases dry patches, and helps to prevent fine lines.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum 100% Pure

The next product in the summer skin hydration combo is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced as well by the human body. It secures moisture and creates full, youthful looking skin naturally. When used in skin care, the Best hyaluronic acid can be found in serums, creams, hyaluronic acid supplements, and injectables and keeps the skin hydrated by holding 1000 times its weight in water.

20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum

And last in our skin hydration combo is vitamin C + E ferulic acid serum. Ferulic acid is found in fruits and plants where it acts as a protective element. Similar to other antioxidants, it reduces the damaging effects of free radicals. When combined with vitamins C and E, it helps to stop the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles and loss of elasticity with the nourishing effects of these ingredients.

Top 5 Fantastic Benefits of Organo Gold Coffee To Your Health

Almost everyone loves to drink coffee. In fact, in a research commissioned by the National Coffee Association, 64 percent of Americans drink coffee every day. What makes it more interesting is that despite the burgeoning numbers of coffee shops everywhere, most people still enjoy making and drinking coffee at home. 79 percent of the respondents admitted to having brewed a cup of coffee at home. On the other hand, 36 percent said they bought coffee outside.

Organo Gold

These statistics simply show that the majority of Americans are coffee drinkers who enjoy their brew at home. It is interesting to note that we are willing to spend on a product that has very little benefits. Fortunately, there is a delicious coffee in the market that not only meets our ideal coffee taste but is also a good source of numerous amazing health benefits. Have you tried Organo Gold coffee? If you not then check out the top five health benefits that you can get by drinking this coffee.

 

  1. Fights and Prevents Cancer

 

Ganoderma fuels the body to produce interleukin-2, which is the body’s weapon to fight cancer. It also contains ganoderic acids that fight liver cancer. Aside from these, Ganoderma counters white and red blood cells suppression cyclophosphamide treatment.

 

  1. Controls High Blood Pressure

 

There is evidence that backs the claim that Ganoderma Lucidum can decrease the blood cholesterol level as well as the blood pressure level. Russian scientist studying this type of mushroom discovered that it potentially lowers the cholesterol. The extracts prevent the heart from accumulating cholesterol in the arteries. Aside from this, two controlled studies analyzed the impacts of Ganoderma on high blood pressure. Both studies revealed that it can significantly lower the pressure.

 

  1. Reduces Stress

 

According to many studies, stress is the primary contributor to the proliferation of cancer cells in the body. For centuries, physicians in the East know that Ganoderma can significantly reduce the emotional outbursts caused by exposure to too much stress. In Tokyo, doctors discovered that Ganoderma aid in dramatically lowering the physical pain of people suffering from neuralgia and shingles or herpes zoster.

 

  1. Prevents Liver Cirrhosis and Alcoholism

 

Aside from fighting several kinds of cancer, Ganoderma also helps prevent cirrhosis and fatty liver caused by alcohol. This is very helpful especially for people who are in the primary stage of liver disease and has not severely lost the liver functions.

 

  1. Fights Yeast Infection and Bronchitis

 

Ganoderma Lucidum stimulates the development of macrophages. These are immune cells that trap and digest infectious bacteria. As a result, secondary infections are prevented from progressing into chronic bronchitis. In addition, developed macrophages are very aggressive against yeasts.

 

Additional Benefits

 

There are various health benefits that are linked to Ganoderma Lucidum, one of the key ingredients of Organo Gold coffee. Regular drinking of this kind of coffee could help with the following:

 

  • Prevents degeneration of the skin cell
  • Improves the texture of the skin
  • Reduces fine lines and other signs that come with aging
  • Eliminates harmful toxins from the body
  • Kills the free radicals
  • Improves sexual performance and function
  • Lessens fatigue
  • Enhances the digestive system
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Relieves sinusitis and other nasal congestion
  • Rejuvenates the tissues of the body
  • Provides the body with more energy
  • Enhances brain functions

 

For more than two centuries, the Chinese have been using the Reishi mushroom. They are well aware of its health benefits and dubbed it as the Mushroom of Immortality. Organo Gold incorporated Reishi mushroom in their coffee so that you will not only enjoy its delicious taste, you can also reap its health benefits. If you could spend your money on iced coffee and other coffee that is not only loaded with sugar but are also very harmful to the body, you should give this product a try and see the fantastic benefits for yourself.

Papa John’s Adds Shaquille O’Neal

Papa’s got themselves a brand-new brand. The popular pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has added a fresh new face to be the spokesperson for their brand. By signing an $8.25 million contract last week, Shaquille O’Neal brings his larger-than-life personality onto Papa’s marketing team.

Papa John's

Papa John’s hopes the addition of the seven-foot, 300-pound former NBA legend will help boost their popularity as one of the top-10 pizza chains. The franchise currently sits behind both Pizza Hut and Domino’s, but still hangs onto a spot in nearly every poll.

Many see the move to bring O’Neal on board as an attempt to override bad press that has befallen the company over the last year and a half. The company stock took a nose-dive following multiple problems, including its direct partnership with the National Football League.

O’Neal has reportedly inked a three-year contract to help rebuild the public image of the Louisville-based pizza chain. Papa’s ranks as the third-largest pizza provider in terms of volume, but has waned in popularity against the other big-two pizza behemoths.

Louisville native and company CEO Steve Ritchie hopes the addition of O’Neal will reignite the company’s prosperity, and reverse course on much of the negative publicity that has dogged the pizza giant.

Steve Ritchie could be viewed as the backbone of the pizza chain, part of the company for over 22 years. He climbed his way from his initial position as a customer service rep in 1996 to the highest position on the corporate ladder.

Along with the chairman of the board Jeff Smith, Ritchie envisions O’Neal as the perfect influence for the company. O’Neal brings a lot more to the table than just a famous face. He has a long history in the food business, a Big Chicken restaurant in Las Vegas, plus his own namesake dining establishment in Los Angeles.

The former NBA World Champion will immediately be an investor in nine Atlanta-based Papa’s franchises. O’Neal is a prominent part of the Atlanta business community, owning his own Krispy Kreme Doughnuts franchise.

Both Ritchie and Smith feel O’Neal will be a key component in an ongoing rearranging of the company’s marketing strategy. Part of the strategy will be to make the popular O’Neal available to the public. The company marketing ploy is step beyond televised appearances, making O’Neal available for large-scale public appearances.

Ritchie acknowledges that part of the motivation behind bringing Shaquille onto the team is his celebrity image. However, O’Neal possesses a keen business sense, and will be equally valuable as part of the corporate board.

The company plans to tap O’Neal’s business knowledge, plus mark him as the new face of the company. Papa John’s CEO also quipped that everywhere he goes and every appearance that Shaquille makes, “the pizza will be on the house”.

Papa’s hopes the man NBA voices affectionately refer to as “the Big Aristotle”, will bring that type of insight into rebuilding a corporate image. Injecting over $60 million into their reimaging aspirations, the company feels this short-term pain will help reverse an alarming financial downward spiral.

The company’s net income fell nearly $100 million during the worst of times in 2017, and another $22 million in 2018. It doesn’t take a financial genius to realize that changes need to be made and these changes needed to be monumental. Shaquille O’Neal is a monumental man, a perfect fit to help make these changes a monumental reality.

Though there have been financial growing pains for Papa John’s, many feel these millions of marketing dollars spent on rebranding the company’s image will turn profitable. O’Neal’s world-renowned image has been hired to help do just that. A very big man with very big ideas has joined the Papa family.

 

Home Repairs

Picture Credit

It is the dream to own your own house.  You have the freedom to do what every you want.  You can paint the walls re design, do the yard like you want.  Best of all you are making an investment in your future.  When you have this kind of freedom it also comes at a cost all the repairs are your responsibility.

Now when its something small you don’t think much about it, when its something big it’s going to cost you.  You really need to start an extra household repair bank account.  This is an investment in your life and you need to make sure you can take care of it, so your investment is always going up.

Having this separate bank account will help you have peace of mind.  When the big stuff comes up it has to be taken care of right away.  Having the money set aside means you are not going to have to barrow from friends or family which none of us want to do.

Our last house was in the snow.  Now while it was not a record-breaking year for snow the ice buildup caused a lot of damage not only to our roof but also the rooms below.  This was not a little expense.  This was thousands of dollars all at once and it was not an option.  It had to be done before a lot more damage was done.

When a big problem comes up like this you also have to do your research to find the perfect person to fix it for you.  Look for people who this is their specialty like Westchase Roofing.  Roofing is what they do and you know they are going to know what is wrong and how to fix it.

I not only want it fixed right the first time I am also looking for a warranty on their work. We also want to know we are getting a great price.  Roofing is not something you want to attempt on your own.  Can you picture me on a second story roof trying to google what to do?  Ya, that would not turn out so well.

Seeing how I am not the right person for the job I am guessing that most of you are also not the right people for the job.  The right roofing makes a huge difference in your house.  Not only does everyone see it driving by the house.  The roof is also what protects everything and everyone in the house.

With every home repair you do remember you are really raising the value of your home.  You want to make sure you have the right people doing the right jobs.   No matter if its huge like the roof or smaller and just need a pipe repaired every thing will cost you so make sure to set the money aside and be ready for the repairs before you need to be.

Giving Back

Picture Credit

Giving back to others can happen in many forms.  There are some that can give their time.  There are some that have no time but can give money.  No matter which way you can giveback we all should be doing it.  This does not always have to be huge sometime just simply opening a door for someone and smiling can make a huge difference in that person’s life.

 

They have a ton of charitable organizations that you can give your money or time to.  They have a fantastic organization for just about anything you are passionate about.  The one thing I always tell people is think about what really means the most to you then look for that one.  Your passion can become a passion for others.

Now there is another way to give back that a lot do not understand it is philanthropy What is it?

“the desire to promote the welfare of others, expressed especially by the generous donation of money to good causes.”

So here is the catch you have to have the money to be a philanthropist but think of the difference one can make.  Of course, you can support charitable organizations, yet you can also help the individual.  You can make a huge difference in one personas life.  With that one person who you have made a huge difference could completely change two people lives.  Those two people each help two people and you see where I am going with this.

Yes, there really are people out their who are making a huge impact one person at a time people like Matt Redhawk who have totally changed not only their life but have made a huge impact on others too.  One of the hardest things to do is to look into yourself see what you would like to change not only about yourself, but also what you would like to change with people and the world.

If you have the chance take the time share what these great Philanthropist are doing.  Share the story’s of success and love instead of the ones online that are sad.  Let people know these great people are out there.

I like many people have been caught up in my own life.  No money no time and you think of course ill giveback as soon as I have the money or the time.  The truth is the time is now.  There is so much in the world that could use just a little love we may not all have the money to make a huge impact, but we all the love and just a little time to give.

 

One kind act is all it takes sometimes to change the world.  With the internet it seems like we are now seeing all the bad in the world but not much of the good.  To find out that there are people who are giving to everyone else is just amazing.

Now when it comes to delicate bralettes its even more scary is it going to be just a piece of cloth.  Swimwear what is it really going to look like. Cupshe sent me both and I can tell you I would order any day.  Not only are they very affordable the quality is fantastic.
