Dressing Style for Mens in 30s

Yes! I have entered the 30s club. In this age group men are generally setteled (atleast) in their lifes, yet they are energetic and open to change. And yes they still need to look great. It is important to remember, bros we can’t dress in the same fashion as we did in our 20s. It is not that I committed the mistake for myself, but truth is that I didn’t put enough conscious efforts in this matter. If you agree with me and need help, I am sharing a link below from RMRS website.

How to Extract Hyaluronic Acid from Egg?

Doctors inject hyaluronic acid into joints of the body to reduce swelling. Hyaluronic acid is part of the liquid that covers joints such as knees and elbows. In chicken eggs, Hyaluronic acid is found in the egg white. It is also found in the egg shell and membrane. Although the egg white contains hyaluronic acid, it is easier and more efficient to extract hyaluronic acid from egg shells. After extraction, apply the hyaluronic acid solution to a bruise to speed the healing process. You can also drink the solution to lubricate your joints.

The procedure

Crack the shell of the eggs. Pour the egg white and yolk into a container. Store the egg white and yolk in the refrigerator for future use.

Wash the inside and outside of the egg with warm water. Remove all remaining yolk and egg membrane.

Place the egg shells in a plastic bag. Close the bag. Push on the shells from the outside of the bag. Crack the shell into small pieces.

Boil distilled water in a cooking pot. Fill the cooking pot halfway to avoid spillage when boiling. Distilled water is used to maintain the purity of the hyaluronic acid.

Put the cracked egg shells into the boiling water. Place a cover on the cooking pot. Boil the egg shells and water for 12 hours. Top up water as necessary.

Pour the liquid through a fine strainer into a glass Mason jar. The strainer removes the egg shell particles.

Store the hyaluronic acid solution in a glass Mason jar. The solution contains a large amount of hyaluronic acid.

How to Extract Hyaluronic Acid from Egg?

Chemical composition: Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. also antioxidant, Vitamin E and K etc.

How does it Work?

Through research it is discovered that the real secret to cell revival and skin rejuvenation are two key ingredients:

  • Vitamin C
  • Hyaluronic Acid

These are both natural ingredients that work together to brighten skin at the cellular level below the surface of the skin which is why they’re so effective.

Vitamin C is the key to maintaining healthy, youthful skin. It’s a powerful antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage, which causes skin’s dryness, hyper pigmentation, and dark spots. It helps combat and even reverse hyper pigmentation of your skin. Applying Vitamin C to the skin topically is up to 20 times more effective than taking it orally.

Hyaluronic Acid works by binding to moisture. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent natural skin plumper. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin repair and regenerate itself after suffering from dryness, environmental stresses, or irritation.

7 food habits harming your skin!

There’s more to getting that flawless, beautiful skin than just inheriting great genes. We all know how a good diet improves the quality of our skin.

It is said that there are certain foods that can give you a healthy, glowing skin. But are you aware there are also certain foods that can harm your skin? In fact, researches have shown that certain foods can affect your quality of skin. Foods such as dairy, sugar, and carbohydrates are said to be the most damaging to the skin, causing you wrinkles, allergies, skin cancer, acne and more.

So if you want to have a healthier, glowing skin, here are 7 food habits you MUST avoid as experts say they may be hurting your skin

1) CARBS
Diets that are full of refined carbohydrates and sweets such as bread, candy, pasta, soda and juice can cause acne. These type of foods have the tendency to increase blood sugar levels, unleashing hormones that stimulate oil production and make pore-clogging skin cells shed faster. So if you’re acne-prone or concerned about wrinkles, consider replacing processed carbs with more protein, vegetables and whole grains, which don’t cause a rise in blood sugar

2) TOO MUCH SALT
Worried about those puffy eyes and dark circles under your eyes? Blame your sodium intake. It is said that too much sodium can cause puffiness and facial bloating. Salt causes tissues to swell, making your face seem puffy and tired. Plus, iodized salt (in high doses) has been proved to increase acne breakouts. Try eating foods rich in potassium, and minimize your salt intake. Make sure to rinse all canned vegetables, meats and beans after opening them to reduce the sodium content.

3) TOO MUCH ALCOHOL
Alcohol, when taken in moderation, is good for health but too much of it can be very damaging to your skin. Particularly on the skin complexion. Heavy drinking causes dehydration, which can lead to dullness, wrinkles and dry skin. It also robs the body of vitamin A, which helps the skin renew and repair itself. It also triggers skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. You don’t have to give up on happy hour altogether, but it is recommended to keep the drinking to a minimum, specifically one drink for women and two for men.

4) GETTING RID OF HEALTHY FATS
If you’re trying to eat healthy, remember to keep good fats in your diet. There are certain healthy fats (like the omega-3 fatty acids) that our skin requires to maintain hydration, and since our body can’t produce them on its own, we have to get it from foods like walnuts, soybeans and fatty fish like salmon. These fats help prevent wrinkles, inflammation, dry skin and acne. Olive oil, high on oleic acid content, is considered a healthy option as it hydrates the skin, protects against skin cancer and increase absorption of omega-3s and other nutrients. Other oleic acid sources include avocados and nuts such as almond and macadamia.

5) OVERDOSE OF DAIRY PRODUCTS
Dairy is one healthy diet we all swear by. But just like alcohol, too much of dairy can be unhealthy sometimes. Studies have suggested milk can cause pimples, whiteheads and blackheads in people prone to acne. A hormone found in milk is said to stimulate the production of pore-clogging skin cells. People prone to hormonal acne should avoid or limit their dairy intake.

6) COFFEE
It’s hard to avoid coffee, altogether. But one should be aware that 2-3 cups of caffeinated beverages can lead to increased cortisol in your body. Excess cortisol, known as the stress hormone, has been proven to be damaging to the skin. It accelerates the aging process, also causing dehydration, a dull appearance, and thinning of the skin, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles quickly. Try cutting back on your caffeine by mixing decaf and regular or replacing that extra cup with natural decaffeinated tea

7) HIGH SUGAR DIET
Study have proven that high-sugar diets can cause premature aging and cell damage by damaging collagen and elastin, the connective tissues that keep the skin firm and supple.
