  • Let your makeup kit be ready and fit for you – The best thing about the makeup when it comes to summer is that most of you are less bound to rules when applying it. What i mean to say is that makeup in summers is less bound to rules and limitation of things you are gonna use instead it is applying for the best of your mood to look flawless, isn’t it.As we all know due to the SPF and harmful UV rays of the hot sun can make your skin tone more and more darker the more you spend time outside your comfort zone and whenever you are about to leave you must always remember in mind of keeping up your face products with you like the foundation cream,concealer and the powder to always make sure that they will help you in maintaining your skin tone and the shade required to let the darkness doesn’t come in the view of audience and if your choice is to stay inside or you are a sit back at home lover than give your skin a boost of bronzer which can be either in powered form or gel or cream base depending on you and your skin type.Applying it in the right proportion on your forehead, cheeks and nose will help them less likely to be strike-able to sun’s heat.Types-of-makeup-foundation
  • Prepare your face to be moisturized – The key to your fresh looking skin is yes off course the moisturizer you are going to apply madam.Why it is the best key, because it creates the perfect base required for your makeup.Moisturizers can be used depending upon the skin type like for normal skin it is good to use a light moisturizer which when applied provides a light weight coat on your face where as for dry skin one’s, you must use a moisturizing lotion that will provide you higher or at-least the desired rate of hydration to your skin in order to lock up the radiance of your skin.Try to look up for a moisturizing cream or lotion that contains more amount of hydrating agents.As far as goes for oily skin one’s, they should go for the lotions that will provide hydration but also helps in controlling the oil production so that the rate of oiliness,pollution and attraction and sticking of dirt can be reduced as far as possible and for longer hours of day.You must always start of with a light weight and light toned eye cream to make ensure the under eye concealers looks properly blended and smooth with your skin tone and does not show the mark of tiredness and stress all over your face that will gonna reduce it radiance to.


  • Modernized colors for this summer – As we all know this summer is the summer of bringing out your natural beauty and natural gorgeousness.It is better to attract some one from your original beauty instead of having a whole lot of makeup applied on your face in order to make you look good for some time but till the noon it will start getting of likeSummer-Makeup-Tips-For-Black-Women scrapping of old paints from old walls and will make you look ugly fugly.

  •  Keep an eye on your wrong side – One of the biggest mistake by every women is using and applying the wrong shade of your foundation cream or gel depending on what are you using.Always keep in mind of using the right toned foundation that will blend in your skin and will help you achieve the proper mix of even toned finish.To get the right blend for your skin , apply different shades on your cheeks and blend them together using your fingers to your matched skin tone.The best thing that most of the women don’t do is testing up of foundation on hands instead of your face whenever moving in the market to buy one.Seriously , you are going to apply it on your face so test it on a portion of your face as well in order to have a better judgement on how’s it gonna look after applying on your face instead of on your hands.Always opt for darker shades that doesn’t goes up with your skin.

Today is 7 April that is World Health Day, which is being celebrated basically for ensuring the food safety so that each and every individual will earn a healthy and hygienic living.So lets project some lights on the myths related to heath and facts related to them :-

Myth one –

Only Spinach can be used properly in order to complete the required rate of iron content in the body
Fact –


Nutritionist Aditya Agraawal from New Delhi says that there are two types of iron, first is him iron and the other is non-him iron.Him iron is present in animal products where as non-him iron is a present in plants and it’s non-him iron that takes time to get absorbed by the human body whereas him iron get absorbed very easily and fastly and for you to let your body absorb non-him iron easily it is required to you to intake some amount of lemon juice that is need of vitamin C. It is also important not to take tea or coffee while eating your food as the caffeine and nicotine does not let your body to absorb the iron content from the food.

Myth two –

Leafy vegetables are the best source for calcium for body
Fact –


Every green vegetable is good when it comes to iron,fiber,folate,vitamin C,antioxidants and riboflavin but when it comes to calcium these veggies aren’t able to provide that much quantity as they are said to have.Leafy vegetables do absorb some amount of minerals during there process of growth but minerals like calcium are present in less amount when it compared to dairy products.As as example lets us consider an amount of 100 grams of spinach and 100 grams of milk in comparison, then the calcium content in milk is 120 grams whereas in spinach it is around 73 grams.So it is good to consume milk and milk products.


Myth three –

All fried foods do contain huge amount of fat in them
Fact –


This myth is too wrong, fried foods can be eaten and can contain less amount of fat but is it necessary that you must know the right way of making fried food.Whenever a food is dipped inside the required amount of oil for frying then the moisture content in the food starts to comes out and oil is being absorbed during this process but if it is necessary to fry something in such a way so that its moisture content do not over go in the oil in much higher amount and therefore the amount of oil absorbing is reduced.Most of the foods are best when fried on 375 degree Fahrenheit and the amount of the oil is also absorbed at much lesser rate.I can advice you to fry anything on the specific temperature and amount as provided in the recipe.Food should not be fried on low flame and it is better to shallow fry instead of deep frying and remember to soak the excess oil after frying using tissues or paper towel and is better to bake instead of frying.

Myth four –

You must avoid dairy products usually in winters
Fact –


Generally it is advised not to drink milk when suffering from cold and cough but the milk doesn’t have anything related to causing of cold,cough and flu.Many people think that drinking milk causes the increased rate in production of cough and mucus but this is just a myth too.Generally due to its creamy texture it causes a sensation of having of cough because of the coating made of cream by drinking of milk in the mouth but it isn’t any kind of mucus, you are just thinking in a false manner.

Myth five –

Raw vegetables are much better than boiled one’s
Fact –

Veggie Corn Salad (12)1

This is not possible in most cases, every other vegetable has different amount of nutrient content in them and it doesn’t related on how much the nutrition content is being absorbed by your body whether it is boiled or not.Sometimes it is even better to boil the veggies because it can improve the nutrient contents in some of the veggies and hey it will be a plus point for you then buddy.The best example of this is boiling of tomatoes, which has the tendency to increase its antioxidant lycopin value after boiling, but over cooking may cause of reducing the nutrients from the veggies too so it is better to steam whenever you next time will boiling up those veggies.

Myth six –

Eating a good amount of carrot can improve your eye sight
Fact –

Fresh carrots

carrot contains beta-ceratin which gets converted into vitamin A by our body and it is vitamin A that helps in maintain eye sight,growth of bones and health of skin but the truth is that if you are eating carrots in a higher content then your skin tone might converted into orange color due to excess of beta-ceratin.It can helps in improving the night blindness property of your eyes that is reduces the chance of having it but is not possibly improves your eyesight but that doesn’t mean you will ignore the other nutritional facts related to it and will not eat it in the desired quantity.

Myth seven –

It is also said that brown sugar is better than white sugar
Fact –


The basic difference in both of the sugars is that, the brown sugar do contain some amount of good nutrients but that doesn’t mean eating it in a higher quantity does not cause any kind of false effect to.White sugar is refined so as to remove the good content from it.As compared to health content then i can say that both contain the health content in the same amount and will provide the same amount of energy to you body and will also provide the same rate of calorie content too.


fresh food VS packed food  VS  commercial2
One of the basic question that arises in everyone’s mind and that is whether fresh food is better or packed one.Many says that fresh is the best whereas many say both will have the same amount of healthy factors in it, doesn’t matter them to much.If we take consider of arriving of both type of food then we can say whether fresh or packed both do will face the rate of decrease in nutrient rate in them cause the packed food is being firstly carried to factories and then to the consumer whereas similarly fresh food to will come in your hands after some times and will also have a decreased rate in the content too.The benefit of fresh food is that, due to processing of food in factories, the packed food generally will have much less nutritional values as compared to fresh one and to preserve them some additional preservatives are added in them which can cause harmful effects on your health as well my dear.So it is better to go for fresh food and those who are over 40’s must avoid the packed and processed food.

Carbohydrates –


Doctors and nutritionist always advice everyone of in taking healthy carbohydrates for improving the over all health and the best source for it is whole grain and it has been seen after seven major studies that men’s and women’s consuming whole grains in a good amount will have the reduced chance of hearth diseases generally up to 20-30 % and a study taken in account in 2010 has also shown that those who consume whole grains or i can say a good amount of carbohydrate in their diet will have a reduced amount of fat in the body and will keep them fit.

normally what happen your eyes have to face the harsh and intense of heat in the morning then they have to face the monitor of your computer in your office which makes them puffy and stressful and then your aren’t able to enjoy the party with those eyes you are willing to enjoy the most at night.
so here are some ways by which you can help in keeping your eyes healthy and the way you want to be and keeping those in mind always-
1. maintaining the moisture in your eyes
in the upcoming summers the biggest problem occurs due to the intense ultraviolet rays of sun which causes the problem of development of cataract and damage to retina of the eye lens so it is advised to wash off your eyes every time you came up anywhere from outside.Washing your eyes in regular intervals not only reduces the chances of these problems that will damage them but it also reduces the stress level from your eyes.

2.Make up for your eyes in this summer
always clean up your eyes.Due to sweat that appears on your eye lashes makes them appear dull and tired so always remember to clean it is advised to wash your eyes atleast six times a day.Usually everyone use to apply make up on eyes as they are buying items in stock but it is good not to apply that much of make up because it will melt at a higher rate and will cause allergic reactions on and in your eyes.Be sure to apply a simple and sober make up that will be attractive and doesn’t cause any type of harmful effects on your eyes too.Use of eye pencils,eye shadows and eye liners are best and enough for this type of season to make your eyes beautiful and using light tone colors are going to be the best option for you.If you think that you have applied excessive make up or want to remove the existing layer of make up then you can use petroleum jelly as a remover.All you need is to apply the jelly using a cotton on the area around your eyes from where you want to remove the make up and then wash away with water.If you don’t have petroleum jelly then you can go for castor oil or olive oil.They are greatly used as a removers because they contains the desired amount of materials that are good absorbents.

Alessandro Volta

 Alessandro Volta
Today is Alessandro Volta’s 270th birthday.He was born on 18 February 1745 and died on 5 March 1827 and was a Italian physicist.He was the first one to invent the world’s first electrical battery named as ‘ Volatic pile’.It was invented by him in the year 1799.He presented the result in 1800 to the President of the Royal Society in two part letter.According to this battery electricity can be generated chemically.His invention sparked all around the world and let others to perform and build similar kind of projects which led to development of the field electrohemistry. He was also admired by the Napoleon Bonaparte for his invention and was invited to demonstrate the project at the Institute of France.He arranged to manage a number of times of honour by the emperor him self. He also made to study experimental physics at University of Pavia nearly for 40 years and was admired by the students of the University.Even after his professional success, he remained to be a person inclined towards his domestic life in his apparent years.He died in 1827 due to a series of illness which he started facing in 1823 and in name of his honour, the SI unit of electric potential is named as Volt.


The first battery creation
While announcing his discovery of voltaic cell or voltaic pile, he paid tribute to the influences made by William Nicholson,Abraham Bennet and Tiberius Cavallo.
The battery made by him is named as the first electrochemical cell in which it consists of two electrodes; one made of zinc and another made of copper.The electrolyte used is either sulfuric acid mixed with sufficient amount of water or a form of saltwater brine.Electrolyte exisit in the form of 2H+ and sulfate SO42− ions. As zinc is higher than both hydrogen and copper in the electrochemical series which react with the negatively charged sulfate ion.Hydrogen which is positively charged that is protons captures electrons from copper which forms bubbles of hydrogen gas which makes the zinc rod a negative electrode and copper the positive electrode.
There are two terminals across which the electric current will flow when connected.
The chemical reactions taking place are-

Zn Zn2+ + 2e
sulfuric acid
2H+ + 2e H2
copper does not react instead it acts as an electrode to carry current.
Even it was the first invention still this cell has various disadvantage like it is unsafe to handle this cell as it contain sulfuric acid which is hazardous even if diluted and the power of this cell also diminishes with time because of the hydrogen gas which is not released during the reaction but it accumulates on the surface of zinc and acts as a barrier between metal and the electrolyte solution.
