Acne is skin condition that is very complex. There is no perfect cure for acne. However, certain measures, when taken care of, can help you prevent this condition, and also reduce the scarring that comes after the breakouts. There are many ways to prevent and control acne, like topical applications, scrubs, chemical peels, exercising, diet, etc. One of the natural ways to prevent acne is to include food items which contain the best vitamins for acne. So what are these vitamins? Here are three important vitamins that help to fight acne, besides other important nutrients that you should include in your diet.

Top 3 Vitamins to Combat Acne
Vitamin A, B and E play an important role to maintain a clear complexion and prevent acne. Let us look at their benefits for the skin.
Vitamin A
Vitamin A is one of the best vitamins for acne prevention and control. One of the richest source of this vitamin are carrots. One glass of carrot juice everyday will help you have a clear complexion, will aid in digestion, and prevent acne. Other good sources of vitamin A are spinach, calf’s liver, sweet potato, kale, turnip greens, winter squash, Swiss chard, collard greens and bell peppers. Vitamin A, being an antioxidant, can help keep the pores clear. So either you can eat these food sources to keep your skin clean, or use vitamin A based creams for topical application.

Vitamin B
Among the family of B vitamins, there are many B vitamins which contribute to clear skin. B-complex vitamins helps to improve blood circulation. Thus, scarring is reduced. Also, B12 has shown to be very beneficial for pigmentation. There are some B vitamins which are antioxidant, which help to detox and get rid of impurities in the skin, thus preventing the growth of bacteria and occurrence of breakouts. Some good food sources of B vitamins are pork, seafood, liver, green leafy vegetables, whole grains, chicken, peanuts, egg yolks, bananas, mushrooms, citrus fruits, etc.

Vitamin E
Vitamin E is well known for its skin care qualities. Vitamin is a potent antioxidant. It helps to detox and prevent pre-mature aging of the skin. Vitamin E also helps to moisturize the skin. Vitamin E in the form of oil is used to lighten scars and also heal acne breakouts. Vitamin E also protects the skin again UV light damage. Almonds and sunflower seeds are very rich in vitamin E. Other good sources of vitamin E are olives, spinach, papaya, Swiss chard, turnip greens, blueberries and mustard greens.

Other Foods to Fight Acne
Above were the three best vitamins for treating an acne condition. Some other nutrients also greatly help to fight acne. They include nutrients like zinc, omega-3, water, and foods like yogurt and green tea.

Zinc: Zinc is a mineral which is often recommended for acne treatment. However, some believe that zinc doesn’t help with acne treatment at all. If you have low zinc levels, then it could be a reason for an acne condition. So get your zinc level checked. Zinc acts as an anti-inflammatory, which can lower down the symptoms of acne. However, a very small dose of zinc is required by the body daily. Therefore make sure that if you are taking zinc supplements, you stick to the recommended daily intake value.

Water: Water is very important for our health and a clear complexion. Just drinking plenty of water (2 – 3 liters) everyday will flush out the toxins from your body, and will give a glowing complexion. Also, drinking water benefits include bright clear eyes, improved energy levels, and improved blood circulation.

Green Tea: Caffeine is a major cause for bad skin, and should be avoided if you have skin problems. Also, it is dehydrating. So, instead of caffeine, make green tea a part of your acne detox diet. 2 – 3 cups of green tea everyday will provide you with many important vitamins.

Yogurt: Yogurt kills many harmful bacteria in the body, when taken internally. It also contains many other beneficial nutrients which help you maintain good digestive health and skin health. So consider having one to two cups of yogurt everyday. You can also make a yogurt mask and apply it topically.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 essential fatty acids helps to reduce inflammation, and thus help prevent acne. Also, omega-3 is essential for the body and brain health. You can find omega-3 in flax seeds, walnuts, sardines, halibut and salmon. However, avoid omega-6, as it tends to promote inflammation.

These were the nutrients and their food sources which help to control and prevent acne. Include these nutrients in your diet and consume them in the right quantity, to get their benefits. Apart from following a good diet, make sure you follow a good skin care regime to maintain acne free skin. A topical gel or cream can help you control and prevent further breakouts. You can also keep your skin cleaner by regular scrubbing and washing.

Exercise While Sitting at Your Computer

Its a problem for everyone, after the computer invaded our lives we spent lot of time working on them. For most office workers, being glued to their desks while typing away at their computers for an average of 10 hours a day is already a part of their normal routine.

However, sitting at the computer all day may not exactly be good for the body, as it can bring about backaches due to poor posture and eye strain, among other effects.On the other hand, being in a desk job does not have to be an ordeal for your health.

If you are one of those people who have to be at a desk all day long, there are some simple steps that you can follow in order to improve your posture and keep your health in check.


1. Observe the proper sitting posture in a good chair that is designed for desk work. Your back should be straight, your shoulders back, and the top of your monitor should be level with your eyes. If you have to look down or up, then you need to adjust the height of your screen. Also, make sure that your wrists do not lie on the keyboard or on the mouse pad (unless you have a pad with a wrist rest). This will help prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Keep your legs bent at the knees so that the knees are only slightly higher han your hips. Feet should be flat on the floor or on a step stool of some sort.

2. Do simple stretching exercises. Stretch your arms, legs, neck and torso while sitting. This will help prevent you from feeling stiff.

* Neck:To stretch your neck, slowly flex your head forward/backward, side to side and look right and left. This can be done almost anytime to lessen tension and strain. Never roll your head around your neck. This could cause damage to the joints of the neck.

* Shoulders: Roll your shoulders forward around 10 times, then backward. This helps release the tension off your shoulders.

* Arms and Shoulders: A good stretch for your arms and shoulders is to brace your hands on the edge your desk, each about a shoulder width away from your body. Twist your hands in so they point toward your body and lean forward, hunching your shoulders. Take this a step further and push your shoulders and elbows closer to the desk.

* Wrists: Roll your wrists regularly, around every hour or so. Roll the wrists 10 times clockwise, then 10 times counterclockwise. This will help prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome if you spend a lot of time typing.

* Ankles: Roll your ankles regularly. As with your wrists, roll the ankles in a clockwise motion 3 times, then counterclockwise. This helps improve blood circulation, and prevents that tingling feeling you can get when blood circulation is cut off, also known as "Pins and Needles".

* Chest: Notice if you tend to hunch in front of the keyboard. To counter that, perform the following exercise:

Open your arms wide as if you are going to hug someone, rotate your wrists externally (thumbs going up and back) and pull your shoulders back. This stretch is moving your body the opposite way to being hunched and you should feel a good stretch across your upper chest.

* Abdomen: Contract your abdominal and gluteal muscles, hold them there for a few seconds, then release. Repeat this for every few minutes all day long while you are working at your desk. You can also perform Kegels (pelvic floor exercises) while sitting.

* Calves: Stretch your calves. While sitting, lift up your legs on the balls of your feet and set them down. Repeat until your legs are comfortably tired. Repeat after about 10 minutes later, and continue doing this routine for about an hour or so. This will exercise your calves, and will help prevent blood clots from developing in your legs. Blood clots are very common among middle-aged computer users.

3. Stand up every half hour to walk around a bit. This will ensure continuous blood circulation in your arms and legs, and will keep them from getting too strained. Take walks to the water station to refill your glass. If you can afford to take longer breaks, take a short walk outside your building, and use the stairs instead of the elevator to go down. Aside from giving your legs and heart a good workout, you would be able to take in fresh air as well.

4. Give your eyes a break from focusing on your screen. Every 30 minutes or so, shift your focus from the computer screen and scan around other subjects in the room, such as a window, clock, desk, or door. This helps promote eye movement and lessens chances of eye irritation and headaches. Another technique to relax your eyes would be to rub your hands together, then place your cupped hands over your eyes.

5. Take advantage of the downtime created by rebooting or large file downloads. Get up and take short walks around your floor. If you can afford to do it and do not have many co-workers around who would be bothered, try something more ambitious such as doing a few push-ups, sit-ups, and/or jumping jacks.

6. Do exercises with the help of a few tools. Acquire a hand gripper. They are cheap, small and light. When you have to read something either on the screen or on paper, you probably won�t be needing to use your hands very often, so use this opportunity squeeze your gripper.

It is an excellent forearm workout. Acquire an elastic band (also cheap, small and light) and use it to do the actions mentioned above (i.e., when stretching your arms, do it by pulling apart the elastic band). This will stretch and work the muscles slightly.Invest in a large size stability ball or stability ball-style desk chair, and sit on it with back straight and abs firm.

You burn calories stabilizing your core and body on the ball. While an actual stability ball is more effective, the chair is a more viable option to use in an office environment. While sitting or talking on the phone, you can bounce or do basic toning exercises. Use the actual ball form in moderation when typing, as this is probably not the most supportive seating to prevent carpal tunnel and tendinitis.

7. Take a few deep breaths. To work your abdominal muscles, hold your stomach for a few seconds when breathing in, then release when breathing out. If possible, get some fresh air in your lungs by taking a walk outside, as mentioned in a previous step.

8. Have a bottle of water by your side and make a habit of drinking some every half hour. If you do this consistently you will begin to feel more alert. Take trips to your water refilling station to refill your jug or glass, so that you can also walk around and exercise your legs at the same time.

World's Largest Flower - Floralis Genérica

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Floralis Genérica is a unique and huge flower sculpture at United Nations Plaza, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Designed and gifted to the city by architect Eduardo Catalano, the concrete/stainless steel flower has petals of polished aluminium. The petals of 23 meter high flower are provided with electro-hydraulic mechanism which is programmed to gradually open/close the flower as per the movement of the sun through the day sky. Thus it starts opening in the morning, its 6 petals fully bloom by noon, showing its stamens and then the petals gradually close by the sunset.

At night it emanates red colour by means of lights which are installed within the flower. The flower when fully closed has a diameter of 16 metres which increases to 32 metres on full bloom. The flower inaugurated in April 2002 is set in a 44 metres diameter circular reflecting pool.

The name Floralis Genérica is meant to represent the collective flowers of the World and the red light in the night is the red glow of rebirth of the next day.

This flower is reportedly the largest floral sculpture in the World. I have not been able to ascertain whether this is bigger or the Giant Anamorphic Red Flower, Nanning Gateway, China is bigger. However this flower is dynamic unlike the two Nanning flowers, where one flower is static and the second is anamorphic.

Brain of an Indian - A True Funny Incident

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

An Indian man walked into a bank in New York City one day and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to India on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000.

The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan. The Indian man handed over the keys to a new Ferrari parked on the street in front of the bank. He produced the title and everything checked out and Every paperwork of the car was fine. The loan officer agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan.

The bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Indian for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parked it there.

Two weeks later, the Indian returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest, which came to $15.41.

The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multi millionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow "$5,000"

The Indian replied: "Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return'"
Ah, That's the brain of the Indian... This is why India is shining !!!!!

Dandruff, also known as scurf or Pityriasis simplex capillitii, affects the scalp and causes flakes of skin to appear - it is a common condition. Our skin cells are forever renewing themselves. When the skin cells on our scalp are renewed the old ones are pushed to the surface and out of the scalp. For a person with dandruff the renewal is faster, meaning more dead skin is shed, making the dandruff more noticeable.

Your Comb/Brush And Dandruff
Never use the brush or comb of the person suffering from dandruff as it is dangerous and contagious. Likewise, make sure that you wash your comb/brush after every shampoo if you have dandruff yourself! Many medicines, medicated soaps and shampoos are available to counter dandruff, but the most effective is cleanliness of hair. Brush your hair thrice a day and shampoo at least once a week. While washing your hair, take care the water does not trickle down your face. There are chances that you may get pimples.


• Add six spoonfuls water, two spoonfuls pure vinegar and apply it on the scalp with cotton wool before going to bed. Tie a towel around your head to protect the pillow. Wash your hair next morning. After shampooing, rinse again with vinegar water. Continue this once a week for at least three months.
• Mix a spoonful of lemon juice with two spoonfuls of vinegar and massage on the scalp. Wash your hair with an egg shampoo after this.
• Soak fenugreek (methi) seeds in yogurt overnight and apply the curd on your scalp for half an hour before washing in the morning.
• Hair washed with methi seed paste prevents dandruff, falling hair, baldness and dandruff keeping the hair long, healthy and black. Just soak the fenugreek seeds overnight in water to soften the seeds and grind in the morning to make paste. Before hairwash, apply this paste on scalp and hair and leave it on for half an hour. Wash off with shampoo later.
• Beat two eggs and add two tablespoons of water to it. Wet the hair and apply the egg mixture over the hair. Now massage your scalp and let the mixture on for ten minutes to fifteen minutes. Then rinse the hair with lukewarm water. This will keep both dandruff and hairfall problem away from you.

World Dangerous Bear As A Pet

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

This 800 pounds grizzly bear called Brutus is Casey Anderson�s best friend, believe it or not. The famous naturalist and his furry friend are inseparable from the day Brutus was a 2 weeks old cub. Casey saved the bear from an overpopulated wildlife park, and raised him with lot of attention, love and respect.

Brutus is living in a sanctuary that Casey built so he can freely live like a grizzly bear is supposed to live. Being around Brutus is not dangerous because he is comfortable around people, but Casey is still not letting anybody have physical contact with Brutus but himself. He is not afraid that the bear will ever attack him because he knows and predicts his every move.

The two of them are so close that Brutus was Casey�s best man at his wedding.
